My neighbor has started leaving the light at the back of his house on 24/7. It's gonna be great enjoying a nice evening looking at the stars with a 100W equivalent bulb shining into my yard. The houses are close enough to be really annoying.

Bump ...

 

I really don't like to complain much, but today I have something to vent to you all about.

 

In the past I have mentioned from time to time that my wife has chronic health issues that are quite severe.  Her life is very difficult in fact, but her health issues just make life very hard most of the time, but not imminently life threatening until now.

 

She has not been feeling right for some time and it is something different than all the chronic stuff.

 

So, she has been for a number of tests and blood work.  The results are not good, but no diagnosis yet.

 

The blood work shows that tumours are likely present in her thyroid area.  Most often these are not cancerous, but still can be very problematic.

 

A chest X-RAY shows CPOD, which seems to be pretty advanced.  Not sure where that came from (non-smoker and she never worked in a coal mine, or someplace like that), but we have a pretty good idea.  I won't go into that now.

 

This latest development has my wife really feeling terrible (hard to breath ...) on top of all the other health problems.  We are really focusing on the important things now and trust in Allah.

 

We are looking forward to Ramadan, as always, which starts in just a few days ... first fasting day will either be May 16, or 17.  We always approach Ramadan as it will be our last and really focus on it and every aspect of it.  God only knows, but this Ramadan may actually be my wife's last.

 

I humbly ask that, if you are so inclined, please keep a guy and, especially, his wife, from NS in your thoughts and prayers.  Thanks.

You'll have them. Sorry to read that she is having these issues.

Thanks guys.

 

I appreciate all the kind words.

 

And, nfreeman, I agree that she is awesome.  And very patient ... she has put up with me and all my nonsense for 30+ years ... we'll be married for 30 years this coming October.

 

WildCard,

 

I / we will enjoy our break, but I am not official signing off yet.  So, you will have to put up with me for a few more days ... then you will all have a break for a month.

:cry: Sorry to hear of your wife's increased health troubles, NS... prayers sent your way.

 

My complaint: one of my bf's cats will probably need to be put down within the next few days.  He's always had some issues on and off over the years, but recently had started losing a lot of weight, and after attempts with antibiotics, steroids, and a change in food failed to help, it looks like he's got some kind of GI tumor.  Now comes the awful waiting period where you're forced to try and decide when it's "time" if they no longer have quality of life.  Sucks.

A couple weeks ago I noticed there was water leaking into the trunk of my 2014 automobile. Another problem. Investigation over the weekend revealed that the water is leaking in around both taillights and that this was a non-safety recall that expired in 2016 for my car. Either it never got done or they did it and messed up.

Ordered new seals and will be fixing this myself.

Feeling my oats, I decided to figure out what I was up against in replacing my broken infotainment center myself. Extricating the old one is going to be a huge pain but if I can get it out I'm swapping in a used unit I ordered for $81 from Wilbert's in Webster. The radio will be locked out so then I have to take it to the dealer and pay them $125 to program it for my car's VIN.

Better than paying them $1100 to do it...

Wait.... how does a recall expire?  Is that what it says on the CPSC website?

It's a non-safety recall. So it needed to be done by the original owner. Because the seals could fail on their own at this point. Can't just give those seals away for free forever :rolleyes:

It's $25 in parts and it'll take me 2 hours to do it. Not a big deal, just dumb.

2014 Impala. Apparently it was an issue with some of them because it was the first year of the new generation.

That's why I try not to buy "technology" (new stuff) and would rather buy "commodities" (established stuff).

I kind of assumed that this tech was sorted out. Apparently it's not. There are also no aftermarket solutions for it because of the idiotic way it's designed.

Next car I buy is going to have less tech, or is going to be a model that is more established and has aftermarket solutions. 

The options are getting limited though. They just passed a law that all new cars in the US have to have backup cameras now. So everyone is going to get some kind of screen no matter what they buy. Pretty soon you wont be able to buy a car that doesn't come with all these nonsense nannies like automatic braking and lane keep assist and whatever. Owning a car is going to become a waste of money because it'll cost so much more to maintain and repair all the tech once it starts creeping past 10 years old.

Although to be fair, once you start using a backup cam you'll wonder how you ever survived without one.  My wife's Escape has one and it is pretty sweet.

My cat Hobey pissed on my loveseat this morning right in front of me! I was friggin livid. I immediately launched an ass-seeking missile(my foot) and barely missed. That rat bastard is lucky I didn’t have time to hunt him down. I was late getting out the door after cleaning his mess.
