I went to the U-2 concert last night with my DD, DS and DIL. Pittsburgh was the second-to-last stop on their tour and the last stop in the US. This is a picture of th... Read more

Yesterday was a very long day. We arrived at the hospital at 7 AM and did not get home until after 8 PM due to several delays in the afternoon OR schedule. I was there alone all day and my cell died before noon but I could check in here every ... Read more

I had a nice visit with my kids. We had brunch at our house and just sat around talking for a few hours until Vinnie & Deanna had to leave for the airport. Then my DD and I had some time alone together while DH took care of the transport. ... Read more
Quiet Day

I did a whole lot of nothing today. I was up late after DS and DIL arrived and slept until 6 AM (late for me). Got up but was nodding off at my computer so I grabbed a blanket, got into my recliner and put on the TV. After a while I fell back... Read more

My son, Vinnie, called a week ago to say that he and his wife decided at the last minute to attend a friend's wedding here in Pittsburgh. My DH is on the way to the airport now and I am doing laundry, trying to get the room ready on time. ... Read more
Water Heater

Remember about 10 days ago when DH was working on the hot water heater all day? Well, he never actually figured out what was wrong with it. The hot water (only) had a bit of a rusty tint to it. I tell him we probably need to replace it before... Read more

Why can't I stand up for myself and just do what I want? I am mad at the world but mostly mad at myself. Why don't I care as much about my own feelings and desires as I do about everyone else's? ... Read more

Just in case you were wondering - my test went fine. Don't have to do it again for 7 years. I do have a bit of diverticulosis, but a high fiber diet should make sure it doesn't cause any problems. My SILs just left - DH went to bed ove... Read more
Survived the Weekend

Got through the weekend without too much trouble. I was able to stick to the low residue diet but I sure do miss my fruits and vegetables. I did go over about 100 calories and tons of sodium yesterday due to unforeseen circumstances. Firs... Read more

When I was at the doctor, she offered to let me postpone my colonoscopy if I thought it would interfere with my weight loss progress. Since I am already 3 years behind the recommended schedule, I said I wanted to do it now. I did not ask why s... Read more

Nelson is still in the hospital but will probably be coming home tomorrow. I have been there every day since he went to the ER. I am fried - I am so tired I cannot see straight. I came home tonight and cried for 10 solid minutes. But I d... Read more

Nelson had 'movement' this morning so he is now getting juice to drink. He can also have jello but so far he isn't interested. I just learned that they need to put in a new IV, which doesn't really surprise me. I figured this would happen onc... Read more

Nelson is doing better. They removed the tube this morning. Still no 'movement' but the nurses are optimistic that tomorrow will be the day, based on progress so far. I was so happy to see him smile when his brother and I walked in today. Th... Read more
