05.14.21 A week of doctor visits

I just finished a week of four doctor visits. Two on Monday in Hammond, one on Thursday in Baton Rouge, and one on Friday in Independence.

The first was a visit with my endocrinologist, diabetes doctor Dr. Corey Majors. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He knows I have dementia and tries to take that into consideration when making diabetic medicine/testing decisions. Like I wrote about a couple of blog posts back I am now using the Dexcom G6 blood sugar monitoring system. He reviewed all the data the system gathers with me. With the changes he made to my insulin I am already seeing an improvement in my numbers! Yay!

After that visit, I saw my lady doctor, Dr. Mark Berry, who did lady doctor things and I passed.

On Thursday we went to Baton Rouge to see Dr. Dammers at the Neuromedical Center in Perkins Rowe. I will get the full report from my neurologist Dr. Zapata in two weeks. Dr. Dammers did go over some of the results.

My math ability went from Superior in 2015 to Average this time.

My ability to draw time on a clock sucked.

My ability to draw an object that was shown to me like the one below sucked also.

He showed us my drawings compared to the correct drawing and explained what it meant by me drawing each the way I did. I just don’t remember what he said. I hope it’s included in the final report.

He wrote in the visit notes that the testing confirmed a significant decline compared to the previous testing in 2015. And that these testing results are consistent with Vascular type dementia given the prominent slowing of processing speed

Friday I was supposed to go to my Dentist where the root canal would be finished and two cavities filled. My dentist didn’t come to work today so I was rescheduled for next Friday.

Thank goodness I don’t have to go to any of those doctors again for a while. Too many doctor visits just wear me out.

After the Neuropsychologist visit, we planned to pick blackberries from where Chip found the amazing amount of bushes the last time we were there. We picked some and then Chip saw a big snake in the bushes so we left with what we already picked!

Tomorrow is a college graduation party for a very special young lady at our church, Madelyne Miley. I’m looking forward to celebrating her graduation and becoming a nurse!

Ya’ll have a Blessed weekend, Rosalyn

01.14.17 Take the Wife to Work Day and a Visit to Tony’s Seafood Market in Baton Rouge, Louisiana!

Saturday, January 14, 2017 – Friday, yesterday, Roy needed to check on a construction job in Baton Rouge so he asked me to join him.  Therefore, Friday was Take the Wife to Work Day! This little lady woke up at 5:30 am. I never am awake at  5:30 am!  We drank our coffee, got ready and left at 7 am.

We checked on a few jobs around Baton Rouge and all were making good progress.  One was getting new windows and the ceramic tile grouted, one was in the process of having the cement stained and another was moving right along also. We met up with Roy’s boss Henry, at some property he’s buying.  Nice!  There is room on the property for Dora to park so in the next few weeks we may be moving her to Baton Rouge off O’Neal Lane and I-12!  It will help Roy tremendously in that he will not have to drive over an hour each way getting back and forth to work!  Henry’s a good guy thinking about us like that!  Do you see any pictures so far??? No.

bg_flagNot until we stopped at this over the top cool place Tony’s Seafood Market 5215 Plank Road in Baton Rouge did the camera come out!  And boy it flew out!  Roy said as we pulled into the parking lot “This is a place you have to see.”

They had any kind of Louisiana seafood you could think of there.  Catfish fresh in the water can be prepared right there.

Cooked seafood galore, served hot or in the freezer.  This place is huge and the cleanest seafood market I’ve ever been in! No fishy smell!  They even sold King Cakes!!! The worst thing was that we had other places to go to and couldn’t buy much to take with us.  We did get a dozen crawfish boudin balls to enjoy! We will be back!

A little bit about Tony’s Seafood Market

Tony’s Seafood traces its roots back to 1959 when Donaldsonville, LA native Tony Pizzolato opened a small retail and wholesale produce business in the city of Baton Rouge. Realizing Baton Rougean’s love for fresh seafood, Tony added crawfish, shrimp and crabs to his selection of produce. By the early 1980’s, long lines of eager seafood buyers were becoming a common sight. Lines grew even longer during the crawfish season, when Tony’s Seafood had been known to sell as much as 50,000 pounds of live and boiled crawfish in one day.  The business has expanded to include Louisiana Fish Fry Products, Ltd.

Today, Tony’s Seafood still sells the absolute best live and boiled seafood in Baton Rouge and is the largest seafood market in the Gulf South. Their deli and delicious plate lunches have become local favorites. One taste and you’ll know why people from all over keep coming back for more.

Well that about wraps it up for our adventure on Friday!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
