Charles is 83 and works every day duriing the school year. Sparky is blind and about 15. his family also includes Lady, a small Chihuahua and Di another Chihuahua.
The next photo is Di, the newest chihuahua. Sadly, she slipped between the fence gates and is awol for 48 hrs. This is the only photo of her as Charles only had her a day before she took off. People have spotted her but she runs away.
I am going to try and post some photos. Wish me luck. They are from Memorial Day weekemd when my friend Fay came in from Texas. Wee were roomates in college, over forty years ago. Scary, isn't it? It's not working. I got a photo to upload , it was my tomato plant, but it seemed to go on my last entry. hmm.

It's been a year now since I managed to clot every major vein in my right leg and I am still not well. The greatly diminished blood flow just seems to have exasperated everything else. I got copies of my hospital records for my four admissions in the last year and it was kind of eye opening. I didn't know the femoral and common femoral as well as the popiteal were completely blocked, the saphenous was clotted. I didn't know I have Diastolic heart failure, that there is proof of mild pulmonary hypertension, that when I was on a monitor I tripped the alarms regularly with t waves and going from braccardia to tachycardia. In the past year, I may have worked my sched twice. It's time to try for disability. I resigned on Friday. It was really hard. I have always worked and always done a lot of OT. To not be able to do 19.5 hrs a week is pretty sad. I think I knew I was in trouble when I pulled into the parking lot one day last week and immediately started having chest pain. So, anyway, my time with Macy's is over. I am using what little vacation I have left and the 15th is my last day.
