Monday I went to get the stitches out from my skin cancer surgery. The nurse took them out and I got the pathology report saying the doctor got all of the cancer out. Thank you doctor and enjoy your vacation to France. Yes, he did go there. : )
Tuesday I took Larry to his dentist appt. The dental hygeinest said it wasn't too bad, but I know Larry scared her with a coughing fit. He has trouble with the water. She is the best hygeinest there and I always ask for her for Larry. He needs to brush longer (more than 20 seconds) lol and I have been helping him try to do that. She gave me some Biotene gel to brush on his gums at night as he has a dry mouth. Now if I can just get him to floss and brush without my preaching.
Wednesday I took Larry to the vascular surgeon appt. for his dopplar scan on his carotid right artery. The left is fully blocked. The dopplar showed no change - 50-60% blocked as usual. We will go back in 6 months for another follow up. The surgeon said he was happy about the test.
Today I ran errands, including getting Larry's handicap placard renewed. I finally got the form back from the doctor after two weeks. I thought it would be easy to renew since I had the Drs. form I went to the DOR and it was packed. They are computerized now and you sign in on a screen with your cell number and then check the reason you are there. I did and it said to take a seat and wait until your number is called. Well my number was not coming up so I went up to the desk and she checked. It didn't show up so she took me. I didn't have Larry's signature. She asked if he was there and I said "no". I said I didn't need it before but she said the rules changed. I thought what if he couldn't sign? She said if I bring back the form with his signature, she would take me without waiting. I went back this afternoon and got it. I know this is a good thing to enforce as there are many who abuse this, using other's cards or cards they don't need any longer. We are good for 4 years now.
The weather is so hot. I felt sorry for the people next door putting in our neighbor's driveway. They were drinking water constantly. Not much relief in sight and we need rain.
My daughter is coming this weekend for a short visit and I am looking forward to seeing her again. She is so supportive of Larry and he loves her.
Next week we start with an evaluation for speech therapy for Larry again. The good news also is that he has started gaining a little weight.
Hope you all have a nice holiday weekend.
