Good morning all.I have some wonderful

news on this bright and sunny day.We

have been looking for me a new pulmonary

dr. now for months.but I wanted someone

I knew and trusted to know them and trust

them.No more like I had before I went to Houston.

Well it took months,but we have him.He

could play Santa,sh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!He's a big

man with a bit of a tummy.And a beard.

Very blunt,so much he apologizes for it.I

would rather that than to be mealy -mouthed.

He had nothing but awesome things to say

about my drs in Houston and what an awesome

job they did.And this Dr.has started doing lung

volume reductions also.They have brought it back

here.So he knows exactly what is going on with my

lungs. But he also said,'i wouldn't have touched you."

"You were in just

too much of a mess".But thank God they did.

He said I can of course see,you were just doing

whatever you could just to live.

I had had a runny nose forever and been to

an ear nose and throat dr.(because of my vocal

chord being replaced).And--------------my tongue

burned.I thought here again,it was the chemo.

He gave me a script for the nose,first spray,

no more runny nose.and I had thrush mouth from

the inhalers I use.I am on the 4 th pill now and the

blisters in my mouth are nearly GONE...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He has made quite the impression on us.He also guessed

for me to have 5 to 7 yrs.Of course no one knows but God.This is

an estimated guess.But it felt good to think I may live this long.'

Who knows,in five to seven yrs.they may have another procedure.

I figured maybe a year after all I'd been through.5 to 7.I'll take


I also have a cute little story to tell you.Most people,especially

Ms Melissa of Melissa's' heart and home know I have a pet rooster.

This rooster lives in the house.

When he was little we were trying to train the dog.Roo paper

trained.The dog,still not.

He is fascinated with shoes.1.He hates them because I got him

In April

and in the house 1. am always barefoot.He knows when you put

on shoes you are going to leave him.Never the less he doesn't

like shoes.But he still likes to play with them to try to tear them up.

My hubby works for the city of Garland and wears big,ole steel

toed boots.Roo of course was playing with them one day.I would

give a hefty penny to have a picture of this.But alas by the time I

got the camera,the "show"was over.

He actually had BOTH feet in the correct shoes.Can you imagine?

These big ole Strong study boots and this scrawny little rooster trying

to lift them.I was just surprised he got the right feet in each.Of course

he couldn't lift them.

He weighs 13 lbs which is big.But not as heavy as those shoes/ha.

I have given up on trying to keep my blog going.I just don't have the time.

I have radiation everyday,chemo once a week.And during the week I have

other drs and dr chores to do.Right now we're trying to get my glasses

and my "free"cranial prosthesis"(wig).

It was suppose to be that simple on both.Get my eyes surgery then j"just run by any optical and pick -up my "free glasses'.Same with the wig.My dr gave me a prescription and I can just "run by any wig salon and pick one out.WRONG.................But after two days on the phone......and i am NOT exaggerating,my daughter found someone to take BOTH...........
But I will jump in every once in awhile like I am doing now and give my precious friends an update.And perhaps as update on Roo if you'd like.Meanwhile I will just visit you all and see what wonderful and creative things you have come up with.You ladies amaze me with all your talents.
love you all.....Anniepoo

Oh Anniepoo! I am so glad that you found a new doctor that you like! He sounds like he really knows his stuff! And I love the cute story about Roo and the shoes. My Baby Kitty has done that, too...and he looks really funny wearing ladies shoes!! lol I am so happy to hear from you. Don't worry about keeping up your blog. Just send us a little word when you can. We love hearing from you!! Happy weekend...hugs...Debbie

xinex said...

So glad to read something from you, Ann. For a while there when you were decribing your doctor that he could be santa with a big tummy, I thought you were talking about my John, lol, until I read about the beard. I am glad you found a good doctor. Funny story about Roo! Keep them coming....Christine

Angela said...

Hey Ann!

We love you too Ann! What a miracle you are! I'm so glad that you found a good doctor closer to your house. I know how hard it is to have to drive to go to the doctor. I had to do that with my TMJ specialist when we moved back to WV. We would have to drive 7 hours to VA every other month or when I could get there. I think we did that for a good 3 years!

Gotta love a rooster that you were able to paper train! That is amazing to me.

You take care of yourself and don't worry about your blog. It will be here when you are ready to jump back in!


Melissa Miller said...

Ann I am so happy for you! It is so important to like your doctor and it sounds like you do. I hope you continue to feel great and to do well. Love ya sweet lady!

Rue is such a cool rooster! I love to read cute stories about him. Post when you can. We understand.

Blessings my friend, ~Melissa :)

Ann, I'm so happy to hear about your new Dr. He sounds wonderful. I hope you remembered to tell him that he's got all of us in blogville looking over his shoulder haha. Loved your Roo story, I would have loved to see a picture of that, how funny. It's so nice to hear from you. Don't worry about trying to keep up with the blog right now, we all understand that you have to use your energy to get well. But do pop in when you can, I always love when you visit me. Hugs, Kathy

Oh Anniepoo, I just laughed out loud when I saw Roo staring at me from your header! Then I laughed out loud again when you talked about him putting ont he boots! You have certainly given me some great laughs tonight. And of course, your "Santa" Dr. sounds excellent! I'm just so glad you found him. I think your decision about blogging is great! You just come by your blog whenever you feel like you want to. Post something, and I and a lot of others, will get over here to read it. Love ya Anniepoo. laurie

ann said...

Folks the header is a turkey,not my rooster.he is much more handsome.tee hee.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Well of course that's not Roo. Don't know what I was thinking. I do have an excuse though. I'm not feeling well, and I'm on medication! That's my story, and I'm sticking to it! Love ya, laurie

ClassyChassy said...

i enjoyed reading about Roo - Can't imagine a rooster being paper trained, but...animals amaze me all the time! Love your header too - thanks for the cute story!

Heidi Pocketbook said...

Ann, it was so nice to see that you stopped by my blog this morning!

What a blessing that you found a good doctor and he knew just how to fix you up for your thrush mouth. I don't know if the Dr. or pharmacist ever told you to rinse after using inhalers and if that helps you. Praying that you will feel good!

I'm glad you are so far away from the corn--otherwise the paint cloud would have been enough to have gotten you down yesterday.

The pet rooster made my day. I can't wait to show my tween once she is done with her school work for the day. I had no idea that roosters could be domesticated--and if dh weren't allergic to feathers my tween would be rallying for a pet rooster!


Rhondi said...

Hi Ann
you're the first person I've met who has a pet rooster! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment today.

Liz said...

Well it must be such a blessing after a long day of running from Dr. to Dr. to have a loving rooster to come home to... LOL! What a sweet story. You are a blessing....


Barbara said...

Ann, It has been a while since I was here, but I do think about you. So glad you found a good doctor and maybe things will go better now. Love the rooster story and hope you can continue to blog once in a while and let us know how you are doing.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Thank goodness for the Dr.'s who know how to help us! I'm so happy for you! Your rooster is something else! And you are right, he is much more handsome then the turkey. That turkey reminds me of a person. LOL
