March 29 & 30, 2016

A Couple of Good Days
With Few Accomplishments
March 29 & 30, 2016

One of my little Spring birds

Tuesday was a slow day at the office for me.  Ron was out much of the day and so I did a little cleaning.  In the afternoon I did some reading while it was quiet.  All day I was very sleepy.  I headed home after work and went right to sleep with no supper.  I woke up about 8:30 and Ron came in about that time.  We each had a little bit to eat.  I did some laundry and unloaded the dishwasher. 

I did talk to our daughter-in-law in New Mexico.  She has some blood clots in one leg and has had to focus on them for now and delay the unpacking for a little longer.  We are all seeing that the next two months are really full with various activities.  We have a couple of graduations coming up, we have some grandchildren baby-sitting while their Mom and Dad are out of town,  a couple of parties on the schedule, possibly an out of town trip, and a ballet recital or two.  Fun things, busy times, full calendar!

Wednesday was a slower day.  Ron was in the office almost all day.  In the afternoon I had a doctor's appointment for the results of a CT scan done a couple of weeks ago looking for the cause of my constant headaches.  The scan did not provide any answers, but in reality that is good - no tumors, no serious sinus problems, but no real help. 

I had asked the doctor to wear the Cochlear mini mic while he talked to me.  He talked very fast and I needed as much help as I could get to figure out what he was saying.  It did help.  After a few minutes he started down the hall to get the results of the CT scan and I took the mic off as he was about to leave the room.  He said I could leave it on his shirt.  I didn't.  When he came back I put it back on him and he again got up to go find something and went out with the mic on.  At the end of our visit, I reached over and took it off his shirt collar and told him I had taken it off when he left the room, not because I didn't trust him with it, but because I could hear him from 30 feet away.  He blushed and said, "Oh."  I had heard him giving instructions to a nurse and talking to another patient.  Maybe next time he will remember to take it off.  (I did not hear anything personal.)

Back at the office, I cleared my desk and Ron needed some papers from my files so he could finish our taxes.  I got those for him and then went to Walgreen's for milk, etc. before coming home to fix supper.  Headache was still a problem.  Talked again to daughter-in-law in New Mexico.


  1. Hmmm......maybe you should get several of those mics and spread them around....that could get interesting!!! Talked to Dolores....she sounded ok, just a little miserable.

    1. I wish I could get several mini mics and spread them around, but there are two problems: First they are a little over $250 each and the other (more important) is that you can only pair up one to the sound processor at a time. Oh, well...
