Yesterday I did what I do each Wednesday.
I injected three vials of immune globulin subcutaneously to control my neuromuscular chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). It's related to MS but not as bad.
My CIDP is not as bad as many other diseases so I'm usually not in a bad mood about it.
The injections seem to help but I still have some trouble with balance and I need my ankle brace to walk with a walker. I moved up from a wheel chair to a walker and now I might go to a cane, maybe just a cane at home and a walker when I go out.
Anyway the immune globulin injection takes all afternoon, about three hours but it feels like all day. I try to not make any plans and just take it easy.
Here's my equipment and three vials of immune globulin. I used to get an IV dose at the hospital every six weeks but the doctor thinks this weekly dose at home will keep the blood levels more even and so work better.
This way I can be free to move about the house instead of being stuck on a reclining chair at the hospital.
I had the idea to add another gadget to my blog. It will feature one of my old posts that I especially like. I'll try to change it each week.
I saw this commercial the other day which got me thinking about TV commercials in general.
Here's the nice quiet commercial that I saw.
I believe this is some kind of investment company. Why can't there be more commercials like this instead of screaming? The screaming just makes me want to stay away from anything they'er trying to sell. I put the volume on mute and wait for it to end.
Here's a cute commercial from the past:

I found the iPhone on Consumer Cellular brand new for a $160. It can do all the major functions. I'm not sure what it can't do but it may be the amount of memory.
Here are a few photos, not bad.
I'm impressed by the video quality.
Here's a video of my grandchildren Evie and Miles on Labor Day. There's a boy named Oliver not in the video. He's the son of a friend.
I didn't take this last photo of Evie but I want to share it with you.
My son-in-law Ryan Hampton took it.
Meaningful Philosophy from a Cartoon Character
I don't remember where but I read somewhere that in those days sailors had muscular forearms from tying knots with the heavy ropes of the sails and pulling anchors on the ship.
