All My Kids Together

Friday, July 08, 2011      20 comments

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

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      16 comments

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

Quick Update

Thursday, June 30, 2011      22 comments

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

Sunday, June 26, 2011      12 comments

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

Need to Ask Questions...

Saturday, June 25, 2011      17 comments

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

One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who did not whine, nag or bitch. (That would be me...) But that was ... Read more

Monday Comes Too Soon

Sunday, June 12, 2011      7 comments

I got a lot done this weekend, but there is still so much I didn't get to. I just want one more day... Tomorrow I have an appointment with a new doctor. My old doctor left the practice and the others that remain do not have privileges at ... Read more

My Day

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      11 comments

We started the day at 7:15 AM at the imaging center in our local hospital. They are not nearly as organized as the blood lab my DH is going to weekly and we were there over an hour. The doctor had said he thought we would have the results but ... Read more
