He was still bleeding badly this morning so I took him back to the doctor (thankfully he was in today!). Poor Pop had to pretty much just lay there for over an hour before they got to him - but the bleeding had lessened with his arm elevate... Read more

Yesterday my dad fell on the oven door - the oven had been heated to 375 to bake a pizza. He skinned the underside of his forearm from wrist to elbow in a strip about 1" wide. Why am I thankful? Because he didn't get burned. The dama... Read more

I ran across this sentence the other day and it made me think of my daily food plan. Sadly there are many food choices that this can apply to. If I have to ask how many calories - then I know I cannot afford it. But this is a lifestyl... Read more
