Nice, fun, sleepy weekend...

Monday, April 27, 2009
We had a pretty quiet weekend. Rod had a very earned vacation day on Friday (all of the stars and moons aligned and he could actually take a day off!). He spent the day outside, enjoying the great weather, digging in the dirt, you know, guy stuff.
I spent most of my time "being one with the couch." I read, watched TV and worked some more on transferring our old VHS movies to DVD's.

On Saturday, I went on a PEO outing. A bunch of us went to this little town in Nebraska named Plattsmouth and visited an old Victorian house and had a fantastic lunch! The place is called "The Heights" and was built in the 1890's. The owner and her husband are restoring this beautiful home and offer Victorian teas, luncheons, wedding and baby showers. The owner also dresses in complete Victorian era clothing. As part of our program, she explained the numerous layers of clothing the women had to wear. Several of us decided we would have much rather been the hired help than the high-brow rich women!
This is a picture of the "Lady of the House."

As you can see, the place was decorated beautifully!

Part of the fun was picking out a special hat to wear during our luncheon. Here are a few of my beautiful "Victorian Sisters!"

On Sunday we went to church, had brunch with a bunch of friends and then, I came home and slept most of the afternoon. We finished off the weekend by having dinner with some good friend's and their family.

"The knee issue" is still around. I'm still taking extra steroids, but not enough to keep the fluid off the knee. The rash is gone from my leg, but it's still on my face. I did just receive the "latex-free" cannulas that I found online. So, I'm hoping that the rash on my face will be getting better in a couple of days. Since there is minor improvement in my knee and the fact that I'm still taking extra steroids, we're going to keep "watching it" for a few more days. In the meantime, my cranky level is such that even the dogs are staying away. I don't blame them. I wish I could stay away too.

Well, I'm off to book club with my phriend, Cindy C. We have sunshine for the first time in three days! Yahoo!

Thanks for reading.

Hi Annette... my 4 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. I'm so full of questions with no answers so far. We are planning to take her to Children's Hospital of Boston to see a Pulmonary Hyptertension Specialist. Right now they put her on Sildenafil (Viagra). Not too sure how much good that will do. She had a heart cath last week and so far that's the only way to test the pressure in her lungs. It doesn't show on an Echo.

How long have you had PH?

Hugs - Tiff

I loved your Victorian tea pictures! I'm sure you all had a great time and I wished I could have been with you, but we were in Des Moines babysitting my two precious grandsons. What fun! I'm hoping the rash is getting better each day. Take care!
Love, Donna
