  • Thanks for the advice! I was wrestling with the "should I eat, or not" mindset. The chicken broth seems to satisfy me. The prescription Mirilax I got is completely tasteless, yay! Taking that once a day. I washed my bedding, cleaned the bathroom rugs, vacuumed (yes that was surprising), made my three quarts of chicken…
  • Thanks Barbie for starting us all off on the right path, month after month, year after year! I think I was with y'all during the difficult years, dealing with husband and his liver issues. I kept your inspiration in my back pocket when I had to drive from the Oregon coast to Portland for appointments or procedures. You all…
  • Awful night, but I am determined to see the other side. Maybe slept 2 hours. Now drinking my 80 ozs of water today. Only sipping chicken broth. 😢💖
  • Nice shower set up Pip! Well, my doctors appointment went well. The doctor I ended up having I had went to see last year with the same issue! He did a belly exam, which my wincing showed that in the area around my abdomen where the large intestines encircle the small, he said he could feel them full. So impacted a bit. So…
  • Fasting today because if the doctor wants lab work I can get that out of the way today too. Shopped on empty stomach which wasn't fun. Towards the end my strength was zapped and I leaned on the cart like an old person. Not feeling well sucks. Doctors nurse called this morning and though I still have an appointment at 1:40,…
  • I haven't. I will ask the doctor today. Our bath tub is in an unused bathroom that son used. I now just use it for a bath, with white and pale blue furnishings like a spa place. We never do daily showers etc in there so tile is always shiny. When I was hurting the fetal position getting my whole belly under the water…
  • So last night I slept well. Did have a hot bath beforehand though. After the bath at 10:30 I was able to have a BM ( I know tmi but that's life). Today slept in until 10:30! Took a nice shower, coconut oiled myself, dried my hair just so, and felt more myself. Had a piece of toast with slices of tomato, drizzled with a bit…
  • I appreciate your care and concern💖🤗. I hope to get the ball rolling with all this soon on Thursday at my doctor appointment. I promise to go to the ER if I need to.🙏 Rebecca Whidbey Wa
  • I don't have a temperature.👍🏻 Soon is my doctors appointment Thursday, and hope to start this ball rolling into what I might have. Rebecca
  • I looked it up, and though I don't have fever or nausea, I do have the abdomen pain, and heat is the only relief. I will ask doctor about it.👍🏻💖 Rebecca
  • Another rough night. Four baths later, slept all over the house, in recliner, on couch, in bed, in bath, everywhere! Just whole abdomen tight, and the only thing that feels good was lying in hot water. Its now almost 11 am and I was able to sleep for two hours while Lee was at gym. Hadn't eaten since 2 yesterday, so at 8…
  • Thanks ladies. I am glad to be home. Today was kind of a lazy day, washing all my clothes and organizing stuff. Hugs Rebecca Whidbey WA This looks to be a pre haircut photo but sweet none the less. I miss her!
  • Lee and I had a great visit with middle son, his wife and of course Athena. I didn't bother to take photos, but just hearing her call me Grandma, and playing with her Wednesday Thursday and most of Friday was so much fun! She had fun with Grandpa when he arrived Friday afternoon. We took them out to dinner, and though she…

  • I appreciate your nice words friend.💖. Its been a whirlwind of emotions, even to the point of physical manifestations in me. My belly tightness returned periodically, which was only relieved by hot showers or baths. After visiting with middle son, daughter inlaw, and Athena, I had an awful night at our hotel last night. Up…
  • Thanks Carol! Many have a "filter" on the photo so technically I am not that gorgeous! My gray hair is getting more manageable as its growing.👍🏻💖 Rebecca Back on Whidbey island WA
  • Pretty sunset at a neighbors Rebecca
  • My sister, her daughter (my niece) and I playing.💖👍🏻 Rebecca In Vancouver WA with Athena, son and daughter inlaw
  • Thank you, sweet friend. Its been stressful, but a lot has gotten done, and her kids are coming today, as well as some port a potties for the 200+ people attending on Sunday. I have Tucker this morning keeping my toes warm. Rebecca Willamette Valley OR
  • I'm so sorry Katla, that's tough to be separated. Know that he's being cared for, and you will just have to call him daily like before.💖. Hugs Rebecca Willamette Valley
  • Its so weird living with a dog. A good weird. So when either of us gets up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, expect Tucker the 140 lb bernese mountain dog to sit right in front of you as you sit. Its a moment when he knows he's got your attention. I mean what else you gonna do as you sit on a toilet? So he's…
  • Appreciate your nice words Michele. I hope I am helping. Today we started organizing her hot tub, cleaned out a carport, (tomorrow we will spray wash it), we picked up 4+ piles of day lily that were cut down by a neighbor, then we organized all the bits from the carport to other two storage areas. At one point she said I…
  • My sister is still in the denial area, hoping he will just come driving down the driveway. She has a journal though and uses it to " talk" to him every morning. I think its healing, because there are days she cries when writing, but some days she doesn't cry, so that is encouraging. There are numerous farmers and friends…
  • Katla, Prayers and hugs to your dear husband and you. So glad you have family near.💖🙏
  • No worries friend. It was the 8th, a day after I left for my sisters. I told my husband to not mention anything on Facebook etc. It just seemed rude to, considering I am at my sisters helping her get thru the days and missing hers. Its Sunday now, and a week since I got here. Every morning she journals and cries which I…
  • No worries I missed it too. I'm at my sisters so I didn't really acknowledge it. It seemed inconsiderate to do so, with how she's feeling.😢 Rebecca
  • It is a large place. She has more energy than me, even being 67 yrs old, than me at 60. I have tried my best to keep up, but between the hotter, windier temperatures, I have to take breaks here and there from weeding and pruning the many plants and flowers. So much she wants to do before the event on 18th. We watched…
  • I have picked up dog remnants in the lawn, moved two cinder blocks to another area of my sisters property, and helped her spread various piles of bark dust in two large beds. I took an hour nap. My long drip down yesterday, plus staying up late, and getting but early took its toll! She is on an emotional rollercoaster.…
