I usually blog this as soon as I get my invite to the Official 5% Team but I have been busy with my DH, Ray.
It's not too late to join if you're interested - many have made the 5% in the 8 weeks of challenge. Even if you don't (I certain... Read more
Thrush and Acidophilus **Acidophilus needs refrigeration!! OMG!!
Ray developed a 'problem' in his backside - probably related to the Thrush and a month's worth of Nystatin Liquid.
A neighbor with a paralyzed hubby learned that we must MUST up the dosages of Acidophilus (probiotics) to the equivalent of... Read more

Support Bar ideas & Waterproofing idea for your furniture
Ray needed me to add another couple of Support Grab Bars and the question was, where to place them. At first I was going to place one in front of the sink cabinet and the other on the Towel Closet.
Then I realized, he would be forever bang... Read more
Let me share my Wednesday happiness with you.
Ray is a little hard of hearing. Ok, deaf as a doorknob.
But, at 95, he's really unable to make the long trip to Jackson MS to the VA, so I asked about them "outsourcing" his hearing aids to be adjusted.
Well, the receptionist for the... Read more
Cherish the ones you love, Life doesn't come with guarantees.
I took Ray to his primary physician and we discussed the ZG Chair, his dehydration, swallowing issues, etc.
I explained why we chose not to go to the ER when he fell and hit his head. Regardless of what would be found in the testing, at R... Read more
A change in my profile - but still the same old me!
Weebles Wobble but we don't fall down!
Well, another week is gone and Ray is still here!
It turned out to be a multi-faceted problem, but then... Read more
I am turning into Ray! Broken sleep is awful!!
I have come to figure out that a huge part of Ray's problem is not age as much as broken sleep!
Having to keep to his schedule has made me act like - - - him. I can feel myself staggering around. I get confused easily because it is difficu... Read more
RE: A comment left on my page gave me thoughts.
RE: I hate the saying that God doesn't give you more than you can handle!
** I told the person that left it that I didn't believe in it either.
But I was just thinking and realized I just look at it differently.
I ask for the str... Read more
RE: Zero Gravity and symptoms: chair good, Ray old, lol.
I was on the right track but for the wrong train.
The doctor was so nice when I told him everything - but he said it wasn't so much the Zero Gravity as the fact Ray was laying down for long periods of time these past 2 weeks and at his age,... Read more
Just a little FYI should you experience any of these symptoms after Zero Gravity.
I had an idea last night - and it came to fruition.
The only thing new is the chair and Zero Gravity. I had already decided to put Ray back on the sofa - forgive me, but it's 10 years old and the chair is new.
Anyway, as it goes, one ... Read more
Did I tell you about my Coffee Nirvana?
Did I tell you about Barlean's Chocolate Silk Greens?
OMG! To die for! 1 scoop (about 1 TBL) equals 25 calories - I add 1 tsp to my cup of coffee for a treat that is actually healthy!
You might want to invest in a jar but it's not ch... Read more
I am Normal?! Yes, I am!!
I was watching the Today show and they were all playing with this ridiculous toy, a "Figit" toy - when I thought, I will look online for figit toys! This finally led to stress toys and eventually I thought about "bean bags" but they are sooo ex... Read more

... and here is why I haven't been posting lately.
Ray likes The Chair - - - but if I'm in the room, he still asks for help :(
It took me a full day to teach him how to use 2 buttons; UP and DOWN
(there are more buttons but up & down is the extremes) He just can't seem to remember - espe... Read more
