I saw my doctor for my cough. He prescribed Omeprazole (Prilosec, Zegerid) to treat my gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) I should see some improvement in about a month to 6 weeks. If not I go back in, and we\’ll go to the next step. I also had a chest x-ray. I waited in line for 45 just to turn in my script – I\’m now waiting for them to call so I can pick it up and start tomorrow morning.
My blood pressure was a bit high for me – 138/80. I usually have very low blood pressure so that was surprising to me. I did have 2 cups of coffee before which has never affected me before. I\’m a very calm person – but I was a bit anxious to just get this over with.
I should my chest x-ray results tomorrow or Monday.
Today is a beautiful 80-degree day. Clear, no smoke. Still no rain in sight.
We decided we will pass out candy for Halloween. We have a picket fence we can sit by – and we\’ll place a bowl of candy. We\’ll be there to monitor the bowl and social distance. When the candy is gone, so will we. We\’ll turn off the lights, lock the gate, and call it a night. We don\’t get that many trick or treaters. Mostly they drive over from the more rural areas – my subdivision is the very last one before you get to the ranches and country areas. I just feel bad for the kids –
I\’m starting to miss Foodie – It\’s been so long. He calls me, but it\’s not the same. They are still losing people where he works, so that is the reason we haven\’t seen each other. Plus he knows about my cough and didn\’t think it was wise until I had it checked out.
I\’ve been talking about the Arsonists – yesterday our police department did a news interview saying that our town alone, has 118 registered criminal arsonists. How come we have never heard this before? We\’ve all suspected some of our fires have to be arson. I remember years ago before we moved up here, we were living in an apartment in Redwood City. There was an arsonist, setting fires to apartment buildings and it made it hard to sleep at night. The complex started locking the doors to the garage which before that, they had been sloppy about enforcing as well as the lobby doors. Still, many residents would keep a door propped opened when they went outside for a smoke and the arsonist was getting inside the buildings that way. Finally, we got fed up with the residents and decided to live in our 34-foot motorhome and pay off all remaining debt once and for all. That was fun, and another story for later.
Anyway, arsonists are BAD!
