RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hi folks I don't seem to be doing that well. I went to therapy today and it was a flop. I go tomorrow for a brain scan to see how much damage has been done by the stroke and Parkinson. My therapist said today it looks as I amgoing backwards instead of forward. I needed to go see my doctor right away for an evaluation. Maybe tomorrow WE will get the answers we are looking for when I have thebrain scan. This is not what I had planned for my golden years. I had hopes of camping and traveling until the final breath was taken. Now I am bound at home with my driving repledges taken away. No camper no truck broke with the coctors and hospitals getting all of our money. Oh well it is what it is, Mat God bless you and may you have great camping trips. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. When you top the next hill in the road look for Sue and I along with Suzie and Dixie, we might be just beyond the next hill from you, you never know what the future will hold.

Daughter Allison and Son in Law Jeffery bought a new motorhome to take us campimg with them. its a class C thirty foot very nice and roomy. There would not be any long trips just week end outtings with us just tagging along with them. its hard for me to get get showered and dressed each morning. Just can't seem to get my feet in the right direction and keep my balance without falling over. Parkinson is hell to deal wthh. Would not wish this in anyone.just a like a baby in many respects. Except this baby is 160 pounds and has a stubborn mind of his own. IT was good while it lasted, but it us over.I feel sorry for Sue ahe has to deal with this every day. Just remember me as I was. WE have had some sun time together. LOve all of y0ou, best of friends forever. DIxie Flyer.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Neither SUe nor I have gotten the vaccine shot for the covort19. I am steadily going down hill. It doesn't look that good for me right now. something new keeps coming up every day. Now its my heart and Afib. I thought I was past that. BUt the doctor says that is what caused my stroke and now he is convinced that I may have another one. NO more driving for me fir another six months Back to the heart monitor for another round of tests. I wish everyone well and that you have a great summer. be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

well today seems to be a better day. Overall I would say Parkinson is getting the better of me.. can't go anywhere or do anything comfortably. MY mind wonders from one subject to another. I will start something and in the middle of it, I will stop and start thinking of something else. If I start reading something I will lose concentration and become confused and stop reading and move on to something else. Right now I am having a hard time typing this post. I think I will stop for now and rest. Good bye folks. have a blessed day. GIve the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

we are still here. Seem to be well. Have gotten the vacine shot yet, most likely won't either. All the family is doing well. Yesterday I had a off day, felt strange. today has been a good day. THe weatherman says we can expect snow and sleet tonight and in the morning. Says the accumulation will be enough to cause problems interstate. they have put out an advisory to stay home in the morning if you don'tn have to be out. I have enough fire wood if the power goes out we will still be able to stay warm. Each day I can see where the Parkinson is becoming more noticeable. I hope all is well with everyone. Keep on camping folks. Sue and I have about decided to get a pop up. ON with a shower and toilet. WE had one back in the 90's. it was okay. you could heat it with two small electric heaters. It was comfortable even when it was down in the teens at night. Sue can drive and pull teh pop up without any problem. )kay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed evening. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone youlove them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Doctor today told me I was not out of the woods with the question of Afib. Just because the monitor didn't show and irregular heart beat the month I wore it doesn't really mean I didn't have an irregular beat the day I had the stroke, he now said I have had two strokes. He also said I was a likely candidate for another stroke. So I am on watch with him. If I have a fast heart beat that makes me feel as if my heart is pounding I should call him immediately and go to the hospital. OH well all is fun when you get old. S0 now I am waiting for the next thing to happen that sends me to the hospital. kay I am going to close for now wishing everyone a blessed evening Be sure ti give the fur babies a hug for me ans be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

SUe and I will not be taking the shots. Whatever happens will happen. I am in a mess. SO if I die I figure it is a win win situation. If I die I will go to heaven and be with Jesus. There I will be healed of all my diseases, Diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson and anything else I have. SO that is how I feel about all of this. I will maybe get to see OLd Fella at the bridge. SO I am looking for a great transformation the day I die. Jesus said "let not your hearts be troubled YE believe in GOd believe also in me. In my Fathers' house are many mansions, IF it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you and If I go to prepare a place for you I am coming again to receive you unto myself, that where I am there you may be also. Whither I go you know and the way you know. THomas said unto our L0rd. WE don't know where you are going how can we know the way. JEsus said. " I am the way the truth and the life. NO man cometh unto the Father except through me. I believe with all my heart in the LOrd Jesus Christ. SO I believe in heaven and that the words of JEsus are true. There is a house with many mansions waiting for me. THe bible says there will be no more sorrow, no more death, all things will be new. SO if all things will be new. THere will be no more sorrow, or death why try to hang on to this life where there are tears, sorrow, death, and sickness. JEsus says all of that will be washed away. I am buying in to that so I welcome death and my life with Jesus. I am going to close now wishing everyone a blessed day. BE sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Just got word from DHL they are holding a money order for me in the sum of 2 million two hundred thousand dollars. All I need to do is send them my address phone number and full name and they will deliver it for a fee od seventy five dollars. IT seems I have a benefactor in England who has left me the money to do with as I see fit as long as I give five million to a worthy cause. well I think Old Fella is a worthy cause. I won't be holding my breath until I get it, but what the hey. These people already have the information they ask for so why not send it? Fun ad games right?

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

went to the doctor today and learned that I may never be able to drive again. My Parkinson is advanced so that it has impaired my ability to do any multi tasking required to drive. So come to see Sue and I and I will put you up on put RV site in the back yard. I have full hook up Water Sewer and a 30 amp service that can be converted to a 50 amp with the special cord I have. Come and stay as long as you like. I am going to sign off now wishing everyone a blessed day. BE sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Happy New Year everyone. IT's sad in our home right now. our son William is mentally sick. He is bi polar and really having a time of it right now. We have tried every thing we know to do to help him, but it becoming increasingly clear he needs more than we can provide for him. We see bouts of improvement then we see him slide backwards to beyond the place he was. He is determined to leave and go on his own. He just came to us from Portland Maine where he was basically living on the streets. Now he wants to go back. HE just tried that four days ago and had to come back to us. So nothing has changed, nothing is better, there is no need for him to go back, he won't be able to stay there. IT cost money to send him back and forth and we don't have It to waste like that. Don't know what to do for him. Last Sunday he joined te church and made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ and now he wants to turn hi s back on that and just leave. HE really doesn't have a good reason to leave, he just feels he needs to be alone and feels he just cannot live with other people. He is hearing voices telling him to leave and he believes it is God speaking to him. BOY this is getting weird. Okay I am going to bed now. Have a blessed evening. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Pray for us in that we do the right thing for William.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good evening everyone. Dale I am so sorry to heard of your loss. I have been fighting battles of my own lately. I have been in and out if the hospital lately. They still haven't figured out exactly what Is going on with me. My blood pressure will drop suddenly and I will collapse. The last doctor has come up with the fact that the medicine I take for Parkinson is interacting with my blood pressure pills and causes a sudden drop in blood pressure. I have been told not to drive for the next six months. Our son Bill has moved in with us from Portland. Don't know how long he will be with us. But it looks as if it will be a long stay. Six months or longer. We have taken in another cat. HIs name is FLuff. He is a real charmer. Such a love sponge. Never in my life have I seen a cat that was a love sponge, but he is just that. Sue is doing well, I am hanging in there for the time being. I have good days and bad days. I never know what to expect until I get up and start moving around. My legs don't work right. My doctor says it is the Parkinson that is causing this problem. I am having a problem with simple tasks. I can't get my mind to comprehend what it is I want to do. I can read something and s moment later I can't tell you what I have read. OH well it is what it is. I need to get to bed so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. BE sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Merry Christmas and god Bless all of you,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I bought a surprise gift for my son in law for Christmas. I bought him a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun like the one in the Christmas story and I bought the leg lamp for daughter Allison, She said she would put in on the table in front of the window where all the neighbors could see it. SO it is not a practical gift by any means but it will be a laugh when they open their gifts Christmas morning. There will be a note in the box with the BB gun saying. Don't shoot your eye out. Granddaughter Holly got some good news Monday. The doctor told Holy he was 90 percent sure the mass attached to her ovary is not cancer but a benign Cyst. Okay I need to go so I will say good bye wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I am worried about Suzie. She has lost weight, enough that she looks skinny. She eats good and has energy and doesn't seem to be in any pain. But I have noticed that she looks skinny in her mid section. I guess a trip to the vet is in order to have her checked out just to see if he can find any reason she is losing weight. She will be 15 years old in June. She has always been healthy and never one to lay around, She is always active and loves to go for her walk.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Hi everyone. IT has been a good day. I was able to purchase some fire wood, haul it to the house and stack in it the back yard. My legs are getting weak and my steps are unsure. But I am managing to do whatever I feel is necessary. I miss the camper and truck, but I will learn to deal with it. We have an open campsite behind the house that has water electricity and sewer. you are welcome to some stay as long as you want free and enjoy the mountains and the beautiful day trips into the Great Smoky Mountains. Cherokee isn't that far away and it is an easy route to get there from here Four lane highway all the way. Asheville is only 90 miles away . come see the Biltmore house. Okay I will close for now wishing you a blessed evening, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. And yes we are pet friendly. So brings your pets with you and there is plenty of places to walk your pets and enjoy the scenery. Come and help us celebrate Christmas.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Decided to drop in for a visit. Reading DR. DOUg's post about the virus, interesting. I hope it is over soon. I keep going back and forth to the hospital and the last thing I need right now is to get the virus. I passed out at home the other morning. Still don't know what is going on. I had to back out of my son's wedding for fear of having a passing ou0 episode while conducting the service. Enough of that. I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

this is going to be my last post for a while. IT's getting hard for me to see and type. I get confused easily and it becomes frustrating trying to make senses of everything going on. SO keep the Old Fella thread going as long as you can, This keeps Fella's spirit alive. IT's been a long run and a very good one. Walter you and Garland take care and thanks for your support through the years. Dr. Doug thanks for always being there when we needed your help and advice. Thank you Sandy for all that you have contributed to the Old Fella cause. Thank you Dan and Lori for giving your heart and home to one of the rescues . Anna was my favorite. Thank you for attending the Old Fella rallies and supporting the cause by traveling across these United States with us for all the rallies in the far out of the way places. And to Charles and Charlotte for all of you support. So many people have made this such an enjoyable adventure. Thanks for all that everyone has done. Here is wishing you a blessed day. Be ure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. SO long for a while: Dixie Flyer
