Monday Meeting ~ November 23, 2015

Well, look at this! I’m actually having a Monday Meeting on a Monday. Hope you can join me.


Monday Meeting


Hello and thank you for reading. I have a few things to catch you up on today. So, let’s start shall we.

First on the husband front. His colon surgery is tomorrow morning at 9 am. He has to be at the hospital at 6:30 am for check in and pre-op. So, if you don’t see a post from me tomorrow that will be the reason why. Of course, if I was smart I would schedule a post to happen tomorrow, but not sure I’m that smart or ambitious. Ha! I might do a quick post just to let you guys know how he is doing.

He’ll be in the hospital for about 3 to 7 days, depending on how he does. He’s just glad to finally get it over with. Also, during his other pre-op tests last week they found he had some major blockage in his carotid artery on the right side of his neck. Plaque buildup they told us, which could lead to a stroke. Sigh. At least they found it BEFORE he has a stroke. They told us that they will be extra vigilant during the operation and that he can have it dealt with afterward. Meaning, he will be on cholesterol pills and they might have to operate on his artery to clear the blockage. We will face this further bad news later on. Let’s deal with the cancer first.

Poor man, he will be paranoid about tests if this keeps up. I told him, at least they are finding these things out before anything major happens, so it’s a good thing. Please keep him in your thoughts people. All the positive energy helps. Thank you.

A tiny bit of good news. I’ve lost some weight! Yay me. With all the worry, stress, and running around the hospital I’ve managed to lose a few pounds. Now I just need to keep going. Without the worry and stress, though. So I’m not the one having the stroke. My blood pressure is still high and that has me worried too, which doesn’t help. Always something around here with us old folk.




On the book front. I am being super optimistic about the success of the husbands operation and beating cancer that I have scheduled a sale on BOTH my books this week to celebrate. The first book, The Canine Caper will be for FREE on November 25 – 26th! The second book, A Case of Deceit will also be on sale starting November 24th until the 27th. For the first 18 hrs the book will be for 99 cents, then every 18 hrs the price will go up until it hits the regular price. So grab it early for the best price!

Either book (or better yet, both books together) would make a great Christmas gift for any reader in your family! The second book, A Case of Deceit is also available in paperback from CreateSpace, which you can click on through Amazon.

I do hope everyone has an amazing week. See you next time!

  1. It’s late on Monday for me too but I got here. I’ll say lots of extra ones for your hubby. And for you. Stress will add to weight, not take it off. The running around helps though. I’m having the same issues as you so I completely empathize. How many words to you have to write each day for your 30 day challenge. If it’s not to many, then just an update on hubby should suffice. Hang in there. Hugs.


    1. Yes, stress usually adds the weight, but I’ve been running around more than usual. I don’t have to write a fixed amount of words this each day, just do a post. So I’ll probably do one tomorrow. Thanks Marlene. Big hugs!

  2. I’m glad they were thorough in the pre-op exams. The blocked carotid might be able to be fixed with a shunt, my grandfather had one and it wasn’t a major deal for him versus some of the other procedures doctors considered doing. I am sure your husband will be in good hands tomorrow.

    Now, you! It’s always good to see pounds lost, wish I could, but don’t run yourself ragged.

    Thanks for the Thanksgiving gift, I haven’t downloaded your Case of Deceit yet, so it was the perfect nudge to do so.

    Take care tomorrow, you’ll be in my thoughts.


    1. Thank you Lois. Yes, I don’t think the blocked artery will be that much of a big deal, not after all he’s been through. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope you enjoy the book!

  3. That’s one heck of an agenda for a Monday meeting. Hope things are going well. (My mom lived years and years with clogged arteries in her neck- to the point of doc saying she shouldn’t drive, but she did anyway. They cleaned them out once – but they rarely do that these days due to risk. She just refused to slow down…or was too ornery to be taken. HA HA Walking – lots of it. )
    Sending lots of positive energy and hope your Thanksgiving Day is full of warmth.
    (Books! Cool! Christmas is coming)
