I got into trouble which is nothing new for me. We attended a marriage seminar on communication; Mary and I listened to the instructor declare: “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”He addressed the men: “Can you describe your wife’s favorite flower?”
I leaned over, touched Mary’s arm gently, and whispered, “Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn’t it?”
The rest of the story is not pleasant.
We had a trio of doctors to see today, starting with my dentist at 8:00 am in Huntington Beach. I have a loose implant, so I will visit the specialist in two weeks and have him examine it.
We then went to Los Alamitos to see my Pulmonary Doctor, who advised me to continue using the CPAP machine. The sleeping tests showed that the machine has significantly improved my sleeping habits and other vital measurements. Since it’s not uncomfortable to wear, I have taken his recommendation. He casually mentioned that using the CPAP machine could extend my lifetime by five or more years; being with Mary, it is something I want to do!
Finally, we went to the dermatologist, where I got some meds for the rash on my cheeks. He did mention a cheaper solution, but it involved a pair of scissors and a shopping bag! The downside is that it is difficult to drive.
After all the doctors and listening to my complaints, Mary wanted to stop by CVS and pick up some things.
We returned home and had a most delightful lunch!
The rest of the day was spent packing for our trip and making travel reservations for Ireland, Panama Canal, the Caribbean with Colleen and Mark, and South America/Antarctica.
We watched some TV and crashed early.
