Update on Jim's prostate cancer. He had his first hormone therapy injection of Lupron yesterday Thursday. It will be another month before the urologist determines the frequency of injections - monthly, every 3 months or every 6 months. The Lupron slows the growth of the cancer and eases the symptoms of the cancer. Unfortunately, because the Lupron knocks out his testosterone, he'll get to experience "menopausal episodes". Oh Lord! Meanwhile, before his next injection next month he'll have a full body scan to be the doc's base line and then 10 days later he'll have a PET scan. Two good things - prostate cancer is slow growing to begin with and the Lupron will slow it down even more; and Jim's attitude is very positive as he wants to hit 80 years of age (he's 73 now). Thataway to go Jim.
There are fewer hummingbirds around now as many have started their migration southward. I'll be taking down the feeders when the current supply of syrup is depleted and start putting out the birdseed in awhile. The mourning doves sit on the electrical lines and keep asking me when that day will be. . . .
Am becoming of more value at work! Am being taught about changing displays now that the garden center area with the plants is winding down. Halloween items are up and more comes in every week. Other holiday stuff will start showing up before long.
House hasn't sold and I just recently learned FEMA is raising the premium on my flood insurance by at least 25% - primarily because it isn't my principle residence; and my homeowners insurance is going to be dropped for the same reason - I am not living there so house doesn't qualify for "homeowners" insurance. I do have an option, to rent the house out and just get rental insurance on the property. Not really what I want to do, living 900 miles away. So my blogger friends who are putting their house on the market and will not be living in it - heed my situation, you may eventually lose your homeowners insurance.
