Post #169 – New Travel Photos and A Diagnostic Journey

It’s been a long two weeks or maybe a month. I have had several doctor appointments along with diagnostic and home study medical tests. A nocturnal pulse oximetry test, ultrasounds of legs and aortic region, x-rays, CAT scan, ugh.

My cardiologist is concerned about my blood flow because I pass out when I am typing, eating, etc. I sleep through ringing phones and people trying to wake me.

The nocturnal study revealed I periodically stop breathing at night. My pulmonologist ordered two liters of oxygen, but Medicare will not pay for it until I undergo a sleep apnea test. Joy, joy. As for the other medical issues, I will know more after all the results go to my various specialists. On to happier moments:

My friend, Dennis, went to Idaho and took some photos for me. I adore virtual travel! We talked as he drove and as he told me what he saw, I would ask to take a pic of it for me.


What do these animals look like to you?


Graduation Mountain, Idaho –

Fields of grain and a lovely gray mountain

And my gal pal visited the Florida Everglades and took these photos:


Wait for it




Zoom lenses – Best thing ever 🙂

Stunning view driving towards the Everglades

And for the finale, a lovely bud growing outside my condo


Wishing you a lovely weekend!
