I seem to be pretty regular with the monthly blogging.  I should do more.  It seems like I really don't do to much.  I had been sick twice since late June with this strange illness.  It was like having the flu except no coughing.  Very debilitating with me in bed for 4 days at a time.  I got very weak and couldn't eat.  I finally went to the Dr. and ended up seeing the PA.  They did blood work and a CT scan.  The blood work came back wonky but they didn't seem to concerned about it.  The CT scan showed a little fluid around my heart, diverticulitis, a small hernia and some tiny minor things that are no big deal.  Oh and a fatty pancreas.  Still no referrals to see anyone except a suggestion to see my oncologist.   I think I have an appointment coming up with him soon anyhow.  I have my appointment with the GI doctor in August to schedule my COLONOSCOPY!  Not looking forward to that but perhaps they can find out why my digestive tract is so messed up.  My weight has dropped to 174.  That is a 34 pound weight loss in one year.  I really haven't been trying except eating less and not eating junk food.  
I had an unusual butterfly visit this month.  It was a Giant Swallowtail.  My first sighting ever.  
Travis and Krys are going to look at a mobile home tomorrow.  I hope they get it.  I got very angry with Travis a few days ago.  Asked him to get something from the pharmacy for me and he gave me attitude.  I said I'm sick of them mooching off me and told him he has 30 days to move out.  
Sarah is going to be 18 in a little over a month.  I think her transition into adulthood is going to be a little rough too.  I think the diabetes is going to be a big factor, especially with this new horrible health care plan that Trump and the republicans are trying to shove through.  Well enough of the negativity.  My goal is to post more and to do more positive things!
