Saying for the Day: The worst thing about medicine is that one kind makes another necessary. ~Elbert Hubbard
I have reached that stage in life where I no longer have a doctor. Instead I have doctors. I have a lung Dr, an eye Dr., an Ear Dr., an arthritis Dr., and a general Dr.. The general Dr. is in charge of my potassium . Which he checks every three months. Then he makes me take these horse pills..
But today is Dr. Wilson’s turn to have me. At 10:30 he will listen to my lungs. I will tell him of the trouble I’ve had breathing and perhaps he will have a new pill ( I already take 3 a day for breathing).
When I was a kid I was afraid of Doctors. Now I almost live in their offices.
When I was a kid I once pretended to be sick so I didn’t have to go to school on the day they were giving shots. I was terrified of needles. Now I am so used to having my arm punctured to draw blood that it seems like the normal thing.
But today is Dr. Wilson’s day and I have to cut this blog short because I have to go and make up a list of all the drugs I am taking to give him. He needs to know that so he doesn’t give me a new one that will cause one of the old ones to go crazy.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and no deer play– Where are the deer. That is the question in Pigeon Falls. Last week there were three of them running down the main street. There was a herd of them seen by passengers in the train out at Kaleva meadow. They were causing farmers trouble and eating the flowers. But this week they are nowhere to be seen. Like the pigeons they have vanished.
Petrovich says they could be the four legged ones in driblet seventy seven.
Eino says that’s nonsense. A line like “Where are the four legged ones?” could apply to almost any animal. The problem with the deer herd may be the increase in the number of wolves. Or it could be there is no problem at all. Pertrovich just has people thinking there is a problem.
But if the deer are gone it’s another blow to the local economy. Deer season is a big thing here with lots of tourists. If there are no deer then there will be no tourists.
Farmers with cattle should worry as well. With no deer to eat the newly restored wolf pack may turn to cows. Wolves have to eat.
Today's Link-Keyboard Monologues- Read that you too might drool.
Saw Dr. Wilson this morning. He says that the lungs are about the same as when I was there last fall. He dosn't think they will get much better so we are trying just to hold them where they are. Came home in time to watch my soaps. Did some more work in the basement ( word " work" is used loosely ). Now I need a breathing treatment.
