Patiently Waiting

A few years back we were shopping at the Agri Supply store in Tifton Georgia. This dog was patiently waiting for his master.

Patiently Awaiting

Some of you have inquired as to how Frank and I are doing. We are waiting for the octreotide scan results. We have an appointment with the oncologist surgeon in the morning.

I am not patiently waiting as the dog was... I'm impatiently waiting. I don't know why I have so little patience. I had a lot more patience when I was younger, but I was impatient then too :-) I bit my fingernails back then. I'm trying to avoid repeating that habit.

My shoulder is healing well. I am able to use it in everyday activities... except I can't hold the big camera yet :-( It will come... I just have to be patient.

Frank and I are trying to stay cool. It is hot! The temps are in the low 90s but the heat index is around 105. The air is thick and hard to breathe.

We went to the mall yesterday afternoon and this morning to walk around in the cool. One of the regular walkers in our neighborhood was also there. I think he said he was on his sixth lap and had taken eight thousand steps. We went only two laps... maybe next time we will go for three. Maybe we'll get one of those pedometer thingies :-D

  1. Hi Zaroga,

    We all need patience....and we need it NOW! Glad to hear you are improving.

  2. Oh man, I know what you mean about impatience. I'm terrible that way. Especially when it has to do with test results. Oh shoot, that reminds me, gotta have my mammo done soon! Thanks for reminding me. :) I recall when I was impatiently waiting for my results after having the biopsy for my abnormal mammo last year. I'm glad you're feeling a bit better. Glad those headaches are gone too!

    That dog is gorgeous. He does look patient but you never know...maybe he is being stoic on the outside and is really impatiently screaming on the inside. Lol!

    Those pedometers seem to be the in thing now. I may have to get one myself. I'm just afraid it won't get used enough and break for boredom. ;)


    Have a great day and thank you for your kind comment on today's post. :)


  3. I like that quote and could use it too myself. I have been thinking a lot about you and Frank, I hope the waiting isn't much longer

  4. Pretty dog photo. Glad your shoulder is doing so well. Nalley and I jokingly call each other "Sit" and "Wait!" Seems like we are always waiting on dr.'s to call!!!

  5. I am glad you are getting better with your shoulder.
