It feels like FOREVER since I've had the time to write a real blog. I really miss it. Hubby is doing better. The staples are out and he's been more or less "released" for normal activities. He still has pain, and that concerns me. Howe... Read more

My thermometer on the porch still says 92 and it is after 9pm. Too hot to take the dogs out and hubby shouldn't be out in this either. Guess I'm just going to focus on ... Read more

The Good: Hubby's bowels woke up yesterday. I got a call at work that things were suddenly "moving" better than expected. He went from no sounds to full BM (sorry for the TMI). I don't think I've been that happy to hear about a BM since pott... Read more

Well I have next to no exercise today. I was doing dishes and I dropped a jelly jar. It shattered everywhere. I thought I got all the glass up. My foot discovered differently. I pulled out 4 slivers and then soaked my foot for over 45 minut... Read more

Saturday, July 06, 2013      36 comments

I'm starting to manifest physically signs of stress. My eye is twitching, so is my leg. No chest pains yet. Exercising is not really helping. Hubby said I needed a break so he took me to Brookfield Zoo today. I admit that I fought with ... Read more
