I do NOT like to discuss this ‘medical stuff’ BUT, I know some of you really want to know, more or less, what is going on with the two of us.

So here goes a short version (I PROMISE a short version) ..

Take yesterday and this morning.


Monday the 30th of January 2017.

3PM .. Medical appointment for Cap. Ho-Hum. Just another in a seemingly never ending series of blood draws.

4PM .. Medical procedure for Cap .. I underwent a procedure called a BMA.

“A what Captain?”

A BMA is a Bone Mineral Analysis. My doctor(s) want to determine which came first:

1. Did my left hip break of its own accord (from osteoporosis). This actually is a fairly common thing in the elderly.

2. Do I have strong bones and I really fell hard and the fall broke my left hip.

8:30PM .. Report to the Mayo Hospital Phoenix Campus.

Patti had a full MRI of her hip. We left the hospital around 10PM.


Tuesday the 31st of January 2017.

7:45AM to 9AM .. Patti had a formal ‘sleep consult’ for her insomnia.


Wednesday the 1st of February 2017.

7:30PM.. Patti will begin an overnight, in the hospital, sleep study.

Thursday the 2nd of February 2017.

8AM .. (or so) .. End the sleep study.

1:45PM .. I meet with a doctor to discuss the BMA study.

Then Patti and I will drive to Tucson Arizona to visit Patti’s relatives in Tucson. We will return to Phoenix on Friday.

Sunday the 5th of February 2017.

Watch the SUPER BOWL !!

Monday the 6th of February 2017.

Patti will get the results of her sleep study.

Tuesday the 7th of February 2017.

Patti and I will drive West to Los Angeles and environs to visit with ‘Zilla and his wife in Apple Valley.

Boring huh?

Sent with love ..

Patti and Cap
