I'm so sorry - it's been a rough week :(
Wednesday, March 08, 2017      8 comments

I know I'm MIA this past week, but poor Ray suffered an awful weekend! The Doctor prescribed MiraLax instead of using Milk of Magnesia. At twice the cost, I wasn't going to fill it, but then I thought, if it makes life easier for Ray? ... Read more
Is your loved one suffering shortness of breath?
Monday, February 27, 2017      6 comments

Ok, I tried to make the title close to what I am going to say. Ray's Oxygen Level averages 98 at all times - using that thing they put on your finger. But when he awakes from his naps, he complains bitterly of shortness of breath. ... Read more
5-HTP, Turmeric & Cinnamon
Sunday, February 26, 2017      6 comments

Just FYI, 5-HTP is a supplemental replacement for Zoloft - I really really don't want Ray on Zoloft or any prescriptions like that. Like Bananas and Cashews, it really can't hurt. This is basically Tryptophan (like in your Thanksgiving tur... Read more

You CAN sharpen a manual can-opener!
Friday, February 17, 2017      5 comments

I don't even remember how I found this - but you can sharpen a manual can-opener. I have a "pricey Kitchin-Aid" and I love it; it's larger then most and thus easier to turn. But after 6 years, it was getting dull. I found this @ ... Read more

This is what I'm doing for Ray. Maybe the idea will help someone else.
Tuesday, February 14, 2017      5 comments

Ray's BP went way too high and his weight has jumped 10 lbs since Thanksgiving. Unlike me, Ray doesn't eat cake. He loves gravy! Ok, so I have to now track his sodium & calories to get both down again. Here is where I had the problem. ... Read more
No, I don't eat everything in my tracker daily, lol.
Wednesday, January 25, 2017      5 comments

I set up my tracker by the week - and I include (try to include) anything that I might eat every day. So, I often have 2 kinds of *whatever* listed and then I just choose one when I prepare the meal. In the Candy, Vitamins & Coffee - I... Read more

Friday, January 13, 2017      6 comments

Ok, so I really "enjoyed" myself this past holiday season! I hadn't done that in several years and I decided that while Diane's sparkmail was to warn us from doing this - I thought maybe I needed it more than I realized. So I overindulged ... Read more
