  • Pip - Sorry for Floyd. I was about to say he might need a 'cone of shame) but see he is already in one. I hope he gets well, completely and soon. When Cracker was little she ran into Will's tire and it messed up her nails. They have grown wonky, so we end up having to cut them about every 2 weeks. I sort of wished the Vet…
  • Michelle in NC - I don't know what you are trying to make with the gelatin; if you use Sure-Jell - you have to follow the directions right on, no changing the order of the directions. If you do - it will NEVER turn out; it will either be runny or very thick. I made some 'hot' pepper jelly once with every king of 'hot…
  • Still stalking and find each time I do - 40+ pages behind. Will never catch up; but, still alive, still walking with a cane [get a lot of positive comments on it - homemade by HS friend's father] and wish to be able to walk in my ankle boots which have a chunky heel. When I told my PT that, he just laughed and said, 'well,…
  • Well, not dead yet. Since my fall last December, I was able to (Taylor actually) convince my DH that I really did need to be in PT & Balance. She must have harped on him because he came home and said, 'well, guess my telling you 'it was all in your head', made you think I was telling you that you were making it up'. No…
  • Carol - I am beginning to think that if Trey (and Jenn) did not have bad luck, they'd have no luck at all. Besides having broken his ankle and then having to have it cut and put back on. Last night Jenn met the ambulance to go to Phoebe in Americus. That was about 7-ish and they found 2 blood clots in his left lung. Of…
  • Well, Tami home - hopefully recuperating from a cyst that had exploded on one of her; Will slept on the sofa (probably a recliner. He went on to take the girls home and turned around and went to Baton Rouge. I am unclear if they went home before going back home or what. The Natchez, MS ER/hospital is in bad condition. So…
  • Lordy, Mercy - some in May, relly high in June, July; read the first page then jumped to the end. Our sweet DnL (in Louisiana) got very sick on their way back home from the beach. Stopped at Convenient Care and told Will she needed to be taken to the ER at the hospital in Baton Rouge where they pumped her full of…
  • Dana - Looking good! I just had to get off all social networking sites, because of my fall right before Christmas. I'm still not over it, Neurologist said I still can't drive and we'd revisit it at my next appointment. Louis told him that he, our boys, and our oldest DGD don't think I ever need to drive again. After a few…
  • Wow, Machka9 - Wonder how they got the water still look like it is flowing! Makes me want to paint. But, after ruining 2 kitchen doors that were in the greenhouse - small bugs on them and thinking they were dry - I tried to brush them off, using a small paint brush, which only made it worse. Louis was pissed; but, I told…
  • When my F-n-L was born as a preemie; they would put a brick in front of the fireplace to warm it up, and wrap him up 3x; then swaddle him up, then wrap him up to the brick. He was wrapped up 3x so the brick woulld not burn him. I guess that was an old-time incubator.
  • Prayers going up for all of you facing the raging rivers in the middle section of the country.
  • Michelle - Sorry the trip to see the baby and be with Denise did not go as well as you wished it had. As for pushing the dog away can be a real problem. I, personally, think if you let the dog be near the baby for a while; he'll get used to him and somewhat protective; which can also be an issue. The wife of my HS friend…
  • SueBDew - have you tried any essential oils? I have a pretty good many DoTerra Oils, which are pretty expensive; but, I've been told that it is OK to use them in my diffuser. I suggest NOT getting the oregano - it will run you out of the house it is so strong. You can join in DoTerra Oils and they will send you a list of…
  • Also, how to end a PM?
  • Good Evening Ladies - I have forgotten how to add to my list of foods, anybody out there knows what I need to do? Lenora
  • Hello ladies, I always miss y'all when I take a break. Went to my GP on the 1st and he took me off the HCT and potassium that you have to take with me since it is actually a diuretic. The next day I saw my GYN (who actually put me on it years ago, and now I have to keep a BP Chart AM/PM. He is actually the senior of the…
  • FINALLY!!!!! I don't need anything else to happen. Took me 5 tries to get to the site/thread here. Finally had to ask Google where you were. Twenty months since I was able to drive. We live 6 miles from the PO in Dawson and in Terrell County and Bronwood where we still get mail (I place my online medicine there so it won't…
  • until I hit the step stool and fell .over it. Did not actually face plant because my hands were on the front of the walker, but I had a huge bruise across the top of my arm about the size of my hand and one on my breast about the size of something huge all the way down to my nipple. The taking a shower by myself and got…
  • Rolled down 7 steps to concrete carport - it won - 2 subdural hematomas, 4 nights 5 days in the hospital - came home go 'in home' PT and OT. On a walker that was hard to maneuver around the house; but, did it.
  • I'm still alive, 4 months later ...
  • It rained like a 'scalded dog' last night and it woke me up; Louis slept right through it. I am hoping it is warm enough to start cleaning out my studio. Yesterday would have been a good time to start - but Louis says he doesn't want me to unless I can carry things. There are a LOT of things I could carry. Now it is…
  • I am stuck at 207. I can’t understand how this is possible at 750 or less carefully measured calories per day. I HAVE come up a bit short on fluids lately, but have yet to come up with a hot drink that is good without sweetener. Broth has calories, coffee has caffeine - a no-no - same for tea. And cold drinks are anathema…
  • Lenora dear – you sure have had your share of bad luck! You know, it sounds to me like you may be overmedicated. But I know what a catch 22 it can be. You may very well have more seizures without them, but they are (possibly) causing you to fall. You’d most likely fall when you had a seizure but you’ll fall without having…
  • Lenora – how are you doing? Been thinking of you a lot lately Michele - If I could stand and move in an 'upright' position, I'd probably be a lot better. After my fall at Christmas, had to use a walker, not easy to do it correctly. Guess I am far too impatient to do it. Then tried cane, which was worse when I needed to…
  • Hi, I'm here, just not posting and too far behind to catch up! Lenora
  • I think my word for the New Year is BALANCE! And slowing down. I don't know where to start; but, slowing down as best as I can and watching what is ahead of me; not worrying about the past - things I cannot change, even if I could go back and relive it - I'd probably still make the mistakes I did the first time around.…
