Good mawnin’, Hack, Rick, Perry, Vinnie, and all of TRT!

Thanks for the coffee and breakfast goodies, Hack. I’ll put out a fresh fruit cup for everybody’s enjoyment. No, it will be in the fridge so it’s nice and cold when you want some. I think I’m going to have some of Doug’s birthday cake for breakfast.

Looks like most of us will be in extreme heat wave today! Try not to get melted into a grease spot. If you do, pull yourself up and go to Rick’s place to take a dip in the pool and you will be restored. After that restoration head on over to Hack’s for more of the same.
Our humidity is 80% right now. Gag!


Jeff, take a tip from somebody that lives in The South… don’t grill out when it’s that hot! 110 heat index? Horrors! Of course, I may have done that whenI was younger……😂
Morning Hack & Perry. 88F is our high here today which is a little more than I agreed to. Oh well. I have a pool and cold beverages. I think I will survive.

Have a great day all.
That’s the spirit!

Morning all, help your selves to cake, Fire Chief is my neighbor and he has the crew on standby for candle duty. Should be enough to nudge temps up past mid 70s they are calling for. Grands want to do burfday dinner tonight and try the pool, since the temps are gonna drop 10+ degrees tomorrow and through the weekend. Off to work in a few.
Have a great day all

Saw the oncologist today, all is well and he also said he will sign off on my green card, if you get my drift. Lol

seahorse fry are eating mysis pretty good now, don’t have to chop it. It’s cool watching them dive for it

Ohhh noooo, Doug! Sorry to hear about the birthday dinner fizzling out due to one having stomach bug.
That sure does stink that Housing Authority gave your GF a week to move after being sooo slow for 4 months!

Vinnie, that’s great news from your oncologist! Now go have some of Doug‘s birthday cake to celebrate.

Jeff, I should not have ragged you about grilling out yesterday. I forgot that you used to work in an oven.🥵

Evening all,

Another hot n humid day, “feels like “ of 107 was claimed. Felt a bit better than yesterday, think the light breeze was the cause.

Had to fast etc for my 3 pm appt at the surgi-center to get the spinal stimulator swapped out for a new one ,, no biggie, but it’s different when it consciously don’t eat compared to “forgetting”.
Procedure went well IMO,,, new , never needs
To be recharged power source in my now… new remote is a small iPad 😳🤯. The biggest bestest part is, new device does not have the ‘lectric shock sensation going thru my bod like the old one ,, along the line of nano waves bla bla bla ,,, instead of this spark chaser feeling like he was getting shocked all the time. The rep turned it on,, asked me to tell her when I felt “it”,, yup, was the old shock thing again ,,,then she turned “it” off,, and said “ok, you are on now,,,” told her I did not feel the shock sensation,, then I learned I won’t,,,( and the shocks I was feeling was only for me to feel how much and where the new tech was at ) HUGE win IMO 👍🏼.
New device is shorting out/stopping pain sensations from reaching my brain,,now without the “ZZZZZZZ⚡⚡⚡💥”
Inna week to get follow up/ wound check and stitch remove all ,,, then I’m good to go .

Anesthesiologist gave me first dose of “happy juice” ( his words not mine ) prior to going to OR,,, asked if I “felt it” yet,, told him nope( he raised a eyebrow )
Guess I got a 2nd dose later and a 3rd “on the table”
Told I was fine/not feeling “different “ ,,,short of numbing incision site of course, I was awake/alert for the whole thing ( and entered in the conversations the team was
Having during the procedure)
In recovery, anesthesiologist was telling the nurse info for her charting ,, she said “wow , you got a lot of “happy juice” ,, now her words ,haha” ,,, told her “ I’ve had better” 😂😂😂😂. Musta being I’m a veteran with pain/meds and mebbe had a tolerance built up 🤷🏻‍♂️

So no heavy duty efforts/sweating for a week ( stitch awareness and wound site bandage and can’t “shower” that week,, birdbaths it is then)
I think I can keep things just under the normal “ overdoing “ for a week,, I hope🤔🤷🏻‍♂️🙄.

On to the evening, hope everyone had a good one 👍🏼
