I am happy to be back. I have missed being here with my blogging friends.
a realization has hit me. Depending on where you are in your life circumstances or your life situation will largely determine your feelings or reactions to the little bumps you may hit on the highway of life. For me this past month the ride has been a little bumpy. Yeah, it may have thrown me off stride a little but nothing compared to the panic it would have caused in years gone by, not even close. I suppose I am just trying to say how adaptable we are. We can adapt our thinking to the reality of our own situation, with this “adapted” thinking comes our new or different reactions. I suppose that could be a positive or a negative.
Had a big plan at the beginning of the month. My dear cousin Joe passed very recently, prostate cancer took him. His son also Joe decided to rally some of the family to raise money for the fight against this terrible disease. It is Movember, November is a month can quit standing as close to the razor. Solicit donations in turn for which we grow a moustache. Well I already had the moustache so decided to go for the full beard, then at the end of the month have Vi “style” it. Have all sorts of designs cut into it as it grew down from the moustache. I was sure it would be a new style or tend setter.
Joe set up a team called the Howdle boys on the Movember web site. I sighed up for the team.
From this experience I learned 2 things. First, back years ago I actually sported a short well trimmed beard. It came off about 15 years ago. It was dark brown with a reddish hue to it. It grows out now and it is GRAY. I don’t know what happened to it.
Secondly, I learned extra facial hair and the CPAP breathing machine don’t necessarily go together that well and it had to come off early.
Have had appointments with both the heart failure clinic and neurologist. Each are very good. Each specialize in their own parts of the body. It seems as each specialty prescribes the best medications for my condition, they may not always have the best possible side effects for the other specialty. More tests up coming and will get sorted out
