I was called by my Dr yesterday, to come in for a consultation.  He had the results of my heart monitor readings.  According to him I have an irregular heart rythum.  DUH!  Isnt that why I was carrying the monitor?  He increased my Metrapolol, by 25 mg, and added Coumadin.  and then proceeded to scare the hell out of me.  Coumadin is what my dad referred to as his rat poisin.  SWELL!  I need to take it at night and then have a blood test in the morning twice a week.  They will adjust my dosage as it needs to be.  He was hoping that the increase in Metropalol would stop the a-fib.  It didnt!  I had another episode today.  Man it is HELL getting old and facing your own mortality.  I just turned 67, and I am hoping for at least another 25 years!

I went into the base and got my new ID card.  I lost my last one.  I have had an ID card since I was 10 years old, I NEVER lose my ID card.  I did this one though.  I have had it for 10 years, and it is just GONE!  I walked up two flights of stairs to  get to the HR office at the NEX, and I was pooped.  I have not gone up stairs in awhile.  I think I need to get a treadmill, and put it in the garage, and use it as often as I can until I get used to exertion again. 

I came home watching the fog roll in from the strait, and the cove.  it was low hanging fog, and thick.  You could see land across it, but you could not see through it at all.  It has been so cold this week, that we call it a freezing fog!  In the morning everything is covered in hoar frost.  When I was in Nevada, we called it a Pogonip.  Absolutely gorgeous, but treacherous as all get out!

Tomorrow I will see if I can get some pictures of it!

OOPS!!!  This was not sposed to publish.  I was not finished!    I have had to turn off all commenting because I am getting PAGES of spamming that takes me a long time to delete.  So Anji, I know you comment often.  And I have no idea how these  two pictures connect!!  LOLOL  They must just be right next to each other in the folder.  I was heading somewhere when I started this post, but can not for the life of me remember where I was going.  Bob is pictured below, in a vest that I made out of wool that my daughter spun from an alpaca that she watched grow up, and be shorn.  So then my brother's wife remembered some buttons that he had made out of deer antlers before he died, so she gave them to me to put on his vest.  I have since altered it to make the front less gappy.  and now it looks really good.  I am proud of it, Donna is proud of it, and so is Bob!  He wears it everywhere and gets comments on it where ever he goes! 

The sunset up there was just right shining on the lake, as I drove by.  This was one of the first times we had seen the sun in weeks!  So I snapped it.  why is it here?  i dunno!  I am trying to post something at least once a week, so that I can keep track of my life.  I may become quite boring, but if I can keep this hidden from certain members of the family, it might be quite interesting.  There is a lot of stress going on in my life right now, and I need to get it out.  So I am going to try and get it documented here,.

For those of you that are regulars here, and there are not many of  you any more, you know how to get ahold of me.  I will turn on comments again once I see that the spammers are gone again. 

I hope the new year is being good to all of you.  I am hoping also that this year is far less stressful than last year was for me.  Enjoy your family, and friends in this new Year, and make the most of it.
