A little better

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

After I wrote that blog, my aunt died. Her funeral is a three day event and it starts tomorrow. We are just going for 1 day to pay respects. It's been a great relief on the family I am sure. My aunt was suffering with a brain tumor for over a yr and half. Her family was able to keep full time jobs and be at her bedside every moment they could. I wonder how my uncle is doing losing his brother and wife so close together. Probably living in a blur.

I started feeling better on Sunday from my last issue. Then Monday the flu hit me. So I have been limping from job to job trying to make the best of what I got. Kinda thinking of trying to call off a photo job today but I feel like I should go. Since I had to call off two jobs on Saturday for the funeral. There was a ThisAmericanLife recently about ppl dieing from tylonel. It's more unsafe than most ppl know, and some ppl are way more sensitive than others. Sucks cuz it's the only thing making me feel human at the moment.

That tornado that happened around here on Sunday was scary. My friend from college is from Washington IL and she has several friends who are homeless now. My manager at one of my jobs, his wives boss. Was in his basement when his house was leveled. We just had heavy winds, hail and half the cities power was out. My friend was at Walmart when it happened and she said the hail broke thru a skylight two aisles over from where she was. I photographed Washington high school a few months back and been there several times for jobs. It's a nice little community terrible this had to happen to them.

As for exercise, I am walking since I feel like I am a zombie. I was stupid again and left my gympact on 6 days again. So yes I am walking lol

    I'm sorry, Julie. I'm so sorry. What a terrible year and a half for your aunt. So much suffering. I'm happy for her she doesn't feel anymore pain. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I am so sorry to hear about your aunt. This has certainly been a terrible year for your family.

Seems like everyone is getting sick. My son has lost his voice. He goes from one cold to the next.

My former boss the nephrologist told me that everyone should take as little meds as possible including otc ones. He has seen people develop renal failure from taking a single dose of motrin and tylenol together. Tylenol is toxic to the liver and motrin to the kidneys.

The tornadoes went north of us and south of Ian. 2 people were killed 30 miles east of us in New Minden - it's the route we take to St. Louis.

    We are pretty fortunate too! The hail was ginormous, and my kids were amazed. I never did tell Ryan that there was a tornado, or he would've gone nuts. He is terrified of tornados. Anyway, all my kids went down in the basement and stayed there until I told them to come up.
