Oneta 84

It is 21 days, 3 weeks, or 30,240 minutes since I wrote you a “while” back.  😀  Trust me, you really don’t want details of my comings and goings during this “while.”  Cruise was good; otherwise the time was covered with highlights like emergency room, hospital, fluid, lasix, drain, pounds, blood, INR, doctor(s), cough, medicine, rest, sleep and sleep some more, husband sick near two weeks – Ready to yell “That’s enough?”  Enough for me!

I’ve got some worthwhile stuff to write; I’ll plan to get to it.  But for a “while” I’m checking some challenges, or just doing what I want to.  I’m aware that Thanksgiving is coming; my thankful days have started – but I might rant a bit first.  😀


About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Glad you “survived” the cruise— I fretted about the hurricane— but I’m sorry for the continuing health woes— I’m in Atlanta all week— since last Thursday— the sheriff came through surgery with flying colors but I’m on nursing duties so not blogging, just reading—/ but I’m excited for a little thanksgiving rant 😎

  2. Oh my gosh! I hope all is well now. Dee

  3. I’m glad you’re back, I missed your writings. But oh my goodness… I’m so sorry for all the sickness. Praying for you and your husband right now. 💘💘

    I’m so glad to see you. I thought about you a lot after the sad news about a man jumping off a cruise ship out of Galveston while you were gone. I didn’t know which ship you were on, and I hoped it wasn’t that one.

    I’m sorry to hear about your illness, and your husband’s, too. It’s good to read that you’re both feeling better. I managed to get to the oral surgeon, lose a wisdom tooth, and still survive. Actually, the experience wasn’t so bad, even for someone who’s always feared dentists. I did stop the prescription pain medication after three days, and went with Tylenol and Advil. I’ve never taken anything like Tylenol with codeine, and I finally figured out that as the reason I was so dizzy and couldn’t stay awake for more than two hours. If I ever need the super-duper stuff, it would be great to have it, but I’m of the less is better school.

    I’m looking forward to reading you again. You’ve been missed!

      I hadn’t heard of the man overboard. I did consider how easily one could take this route out. There was no defense against such action and the rails were only slightly over waist high. My daughter-in-law leaned against one; when it moved she saw it was a gate. Scary. Sorry about the tooth ill, but it sounds as though you made it quite well. I haven’t used any pain pills except for Tylenol except in hospital. One Tylenol does well for me for three or four hours anyway. Thanks for watching for me. I really did enjoy my peek at Galveston. It was be a joy for me to spend some time there. Loved those old buildings!

  9. Thankful that you’re alive enough to write – even just to write that you won’t be writing much “for a while.” 😉 Take care. You are loved.
