Up at 6 a.m. this morning, shower, breakfast, folded clothes, set up coffee maker for Gramps, and then on to Knoxville at a little before 8 a.m. When I got to Imazo's, she was having her breakfast, and while we were talking, her grandson, Tom, stopped by to visit with her. It was really nice to see him again. He was getting ready to soon go on the road again working at his job of selling jewelry in conjuction with raising money for hospitals.
At about 8:50, we left for the hospital where Imazo's surgeon has an office, and we had the car parked by the valet service and went on in. After a few minutes wait, Imazo went in to see the doctor and had the staples removed from the incisions and we were out of there within just a few minutes. We had no more than gotten back when Imazo received a call and we had to go take care of some business for her.
We decided to go on and pick up Mae and go have an early lunch. Naturally, the best choice was the Cracker Barrel. As we waited for our food we talked about growing up in the country and killing chickens. (Imazo and I had ordered the chicken pot pie and got to joking about how they must have had to kill the chickens before they could make it. haha. Mae said she didn't like to wring the chickens' necks, but would talk softly to the chicken and get it to lay its head down, then she would chop it off. I told Imazo, "oooh, we better be careful, if she starts calming us and smoothing and patting our shoulders, we may be in danger." Imazo said, "yeah, chop chop". ha ha.
After we finished there, we dropped Mae off at her home, and I took Imazo home and came on back to New Market so I could check on Gramps after leaving him alone for a few hours. I also had my doctor's visit to make in the afternoon.
Gramps was just fine (he had gone back to bed after having eaten his breakfast) and I got him up and fed him some lunch (not literally, but fixed it so he could eat it). Then I was free to go see my family doctor.
I now have an appointment in April to see a surgeon about having a hernia repair done. I also have a couple of names of chiropractors that I can check with for treatment of my back. Chiropractors are the only people that have ever been able to help me with my back except for a couple of cortisone shots.
After I got home from my doctor's office, Gramps and I decided to go out and have supper (so I wouldn't have to cook. I told him he could have his choice of restaurants. Would you like to make a guess on his choice? He had the Old Timer's Breakfast, and I had the chicken salad sandwich.
We are planning on going into Knoxville on Friday and taking a movie with us and have a movie afternoon with Mae and Imazo. The movie has already been rented. It is one that Gramps and I saw one afternoon on ABC Family network. It is called, "Nanny McPhee" and has Emma Thompson in one of the starring roles. It is hilarious. I think it would be good for Mae and Imazo to see it. Maybe we can institute a "movie Friday" with them.
Well, this is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. More later. Much love to all of you. Bye for now.
