Dag Nab It All...

These are cucumbers that I picked a couple of days ago. The one on the left that is reddish looking had been hiding real good. I'm curious to see if it tastes 'woody' like okra that is too big. I'll let you know.

What I was dag nabbin' it all about was my GI. I called yesterday to make an appointment to find out the results of the biopsy and she made the appointment on Aug. 11th... I asked why so long because at the hospital they said the doctor would get the results in two to three days. The girl said 'oh they have to do several different stains for the tests the doctor ordered'. Well, bull pucky. I figure he's gone on his vacation and they didn't want to say that the doctor would be out of the office when they know they have a worried old crotchety woman on the other end of the phone. So no results until that time. My sister Sue, who is a pediatric nurse practitioner, said he must not be thinking it's the big C word or they would have expedited all of the tests so maybe no news is good news. That is how I've got to look at it to stay somewhat sane and not become a total blithering idiot.

Monday I go see my orthopede to find out options for the torn ligament in my hip so at least I can get something settled in my head about that and barring any other idiocies that my body decides to pull on me it will then be hurry up and wait for biopsy results.

It's hotter than the dickens here in Oklahoma... I know it's a good excuse to stay in but I'm getting cabin fever. I think today is the 29th day of +100 F. heat here in Oklahoma. Unfortunately the heat cap over Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, etc. is moving slowly, and I mean slowly to the east. Am I the only person that thinks our weather has gotten really wacky in the last 20 years? Used to be you'd pretty much know when spring, summer, fall and winter was going to come around. Now it seems like it's a crap shoot like this year we seemed to go from winter to summer with the early heat.

I'll try to come up with something other than medical ails and how hot it is on my next post. I swear I do have other things to talk about that are way more interesting. Thank you for hanging in there with me...

You have every right to be crotchety if you want too. Health worries are big. And that heat is discouraging. We only had 4 days of 100+ temps in the last week. Upper 80s today felt cool. Ahhhhhh . . .

I'm crotchety because of the heat. Woman...you must be on my mind. At Curves, I've tried to call the same lady "HELEN" for 3 days. Her name is Marion. LOL

She is tall and thin and sweet :)

I agree. If he thought the "C", then it probably wouldn't take as long.

I can't breathe outside and am not particularly happy about it. The grass keeps growing and it's too hot to mow and I ride!!

Good you may get some relief from your hip problems. Any relief of anything is good!!

I know you'll call me the b-word, but we never did have any summer here in Oz this year. Record rainfalls and floods and all that goes with it... and now that we're into winter, I'm bit**ing because I'm downright water-logged and tired of it!

I agree with your sister... slow news CAN be good news, so try and put it out of your mind for awhile.
If it had been bad news, they wouldn't have asked you to wait to long, so try and look on the bright side.

And speaking of "bright sides"...
I'll be back in CA on the 15th, so how's about I give you a call when I get home? Pinky swear, I'm no stalker, and I can be trusted. Usually, anyway. *wink wink*

I'm with you the weather is wacky. But it seems to have gotten extremely wacky over that past couple of years. It's not as hot over here, but it's still hot at
97F. And the heat index makes it worse.
I can only imagine how the waiting is driving you nuts. Hang in there. And try not to worry too much.
