The changes we go through in life.

<p>I just have no clue when the last time was when I posted  on this site.  My life has gone up and down, up and down.  It has not stopped for  a minute.  Up and down up and down.  My goodness; I  never thought the life of a senior could take so many turns.  And it all has to do with the physical.  

<p>I get my diet under control, and my stomach goes whacko, and they do a cat scan and find diverticulitis and hernias, and first I have to do low fiber and then high fiber, and then my knees start acting up again, and I tell my ortho doctor that I don’t want any shots, I want the surgery.  So he says he doesn’t do full joint replacements, which is what he says I need, and gives me to a full joint specialist, who says I don’t need surgery, I need shots and a brace.  So I just finished another series of shots–the second in less than a year–and am still waiting for the brace.

<p>Meanwhile, they are messing around with my husband’s medical insurance and care.  They want him to change his insurance plan; he doesn’t want to, but they say he has to.  But if he does, he has to change doctors, and he doesn’t want to do that, because he just had two eye surgeries, and it would be bad for him to change.

<p>This is what we have been going through.  Then my brother calls me from Wisconsin, asking me about my granddaughter’s graduating high school, and I called my son, and I just told him to be very careful, because there is a bad family history, and just to be careful.  This on Father’s Day, 2014.

<p>Other than that, everything’s cool.  How’s your day going?
