Since my trip north was ky-boshed may as well check out council meeting. It was a very informative meeting. I've heard all along that there were dificiencies in our seniors complex . But i never thought it would endanger our elders n handi-capped. We had a heating n plumbing contractor come n look over the heating n plumbing. He found serious problems that could cause serious health problems and worse. So they took pictures yesterday and documented everything they could find. And today they called the engineering firm that works fir us. So we can get his expert opinion on the problems. So we had him on speaker phone and told him about methane leakin into building among other problems. And he says are they comfortable geeze it's methane a smelley and explosive gas. This was noon so we ask how soon can u get some1 here they said they'ed call some1. They said they would hav e some1 there at 2 pm. He did'nt sound like he thought it was an emergency ,wonder if it was his family he would think different. More tomorrow after the inspection today. Special meetin 9 am tomorrow.

I went n saw the doc n he told me to take it ez for 2-3 weeks. No Massey fall fair this year but got my neph seein what else iz goin on b4 the ferry season iz over. And Brady wanted to go but the kids were not to diappounted at not goin. At least they didnt seem to be. I think Wiki has a fall fair but no mid way. I wanted to go n pick blue berries so i can freeze some agin.I brought some home last year,blue berry pan cakes. Was gonna try n get some moose meat,may get yet .My poor dog's woulda missed me agin were they ever happy to see me when i came back from hospital so were my cats. I missed them to worried some1 was feedin them. But Dougie stayed here n house sat for me. My other daughter n grand kids came by to visit. Talia just got back from cadet camp she got 1st in marksmanship here n a friend of her's. She be startin high school this Sept. geeze seems like i was changin her diapers. I like bringin that up when my kids or nieces or nephews get uppity. I miss the smell of babies cept for the diaper part. When my kids were babies i used cloth diapers,did i ever mention i had the kids myself. I was forced to give mom the heave ho. they were 1,2,4,and 5 . My boss once told me have all ur kids when ur young and they;ll look after u when u get old. Thats the last thing i want to be iz a burden. I think every NISH iz like that anyway. So i better lose weight n change my eaten habits ,no more eaten anything that tastes good. If it tastes good its prob un-healthy.

Had a great time at pow wow got there late Sat. but got there early Sun. They had some Aztec dancers there ,wow they really have to be in good shape. And they were cuties . Non of my grand kids danced this year,to bad.But had other family members dancin. Well i had my corn soup n ndn taco, bison burger from our rez venders No more gon banana split from Clint n his wife from our sister rez. Thanx to my daughter she sponsered my pow wow visit cause i was financially embarresed. And she wants to send me up north to my nephews place for the Massey. fall fair,me Kerri,Kirk this year and Brady if he wants to go. But i have a doctors to see first mayb he'll put the kybosh to my trip. I think our pow wow was a success agin ,it seems to get bigger n better every year. Its traditional and not competition ppl come to dance and not for prize money. They had fire works Sat night cause it got rained out Fri. Now off on another tangent,i went to a finance meetin i never knew was on ,a friend called n said it was on. Dont think they were tryin to sneak one by cause regular meetin this Wed. Or were they,do i sound As much as i want to i wont be able to attend every meetin. I get monthly minutes anyway,but its still bettewr bein there. This chief n council want more ppl to attend so they know whats goin on.

''MY FIRST HEART AILMENT''damn scary,makes ya think.

Got home about 8-9 pm. On a patient transfer vehicle an old ambulance except without all the lights n sirens. Drove me from Kitchner St. Mary's Hosp.right to my door. Had my g-kids with me on Monday n took them n my dogs swimmin. Got up n felt kinda strange dizzy,thought it was just the heat. Got to house n it got a bit worse,bbq'd for the kids . Pain started at 3 n by 6 pm it was gettin worrysome. So i took kids home n got a ride to hospital. Did'nt wanna call our first response ,stubborness could be the death of me ,but didnt wanna scare the g-kids. Got to hosp n they said it was a heart attack. So if ya ever feel heavy in the centre of your chest head for hospital or call 911. Next time i'll call our fire dept. ,the ambulance that took me to Kitchner had nothin but praise about our fire dept. Made me proud to hear that,we come a long way since i was a volunteer fireman.circa 1970's.I had operation on Wed. and i was home Thur. Had 2 stents put in my ticker,and i watched it on the monitors. I wonder why they tell how many ways u could die b4 they start the operation. Geez ur al ready nervous and they tell u that. A friend of mine went down on same ambulance n b4 we left they said dont worry about how u gettin home cause they would hold our beds and we would get back by ambulance. NOT,Wed. afternoon after operation they asked me if i had a ride arrainged. I almost didnt bring my clothes i woulda been stuck there with only hosp gown. I left my wallet behind so no money of any kind.Can u imagine havin this prob after a heart operation,i was getin all worked up over it. They were blamin each other for the mix up,what about me damn it ,i was rally gettin pissed off,the operating doc didnt even come n talk to me thur aftwer operation. I wasnt mad at her she saved me far as i was concerned. But the hospital bueracrats who was passin the buck. But my rez paid $600.00 to get me home. i was so pissed i asked social services in hosp to pay my cab to bus station n cab fair from Owen Sound to the rez and i would take a damn bus. When i got home ppl asked why didnt u call i woulda come n got u . I left my wallet in Wiarton hosp n didnt have no phone numbers. So next time i will not listen to ppl who speak with forked got that off my chest so i feel better. But im glad im here n able to post. I have to change my life style agin,i already quit smokin n havnt drank in over 2 years. I guess i join a monestary n become a monk. I have to make changes,im only 52 so i plan on seing my great-great grand kids.Well good night.

Well,this week i learned the inner workin of some of our programs. So did the new Chief n councillors. I never knew we had so many different programs. Wednesday was good we had some elders come in n praise some thing and give opinions on things they thought needed improvment. But meetings are always open to public unless it's a personal problem. If u cant make a meetin u can always get a copy of the minutes for the month. So no reason no1 should not know what goes on here on the rez. It's good that more ppl attending the meetings. More difficult questions need to be asked. I got my name in for Public works and Housing committee's. I still worry about our water ,i still boil my water b4 i use even when they lift the boil water advisory. I still plan on bein a thorn in the side of water dept. I still wanna know who along with the chief ordered some of the systems in our water treatment plant to be taken off line. If it was there for a perpose and nothin was put in to replace,that leads me n others to think our water was not safe for over 10 years. Some good ideas were brought forward about how we could generate some income for our rez. Gas station,restaurant,our own Doctors ,dentist offices for the rez n surrounding comunities,Pharmacy lots of ideas. I had my g-kids with me all day but refused to come back cause it was But i didnt have to cook all week they provided a good scoff. Or i should our ppl provided a good scoff. Since we technically paid for it. Think i'll have g-kids for the week-end,cause mom's workin the week-end. I can take them n my 3 dogs swimmin .Well jump on chat n catch up on the latest.
