I was reading your comments from catlover and she was saying she was drinking Ginger/Lemon Tea it sounds soooooo good. I wonder if you could find out where she gets it from and let me know so I could get so. I'd love it.
Ellen, Your here! So Glad. So Glad! I just wanted to leave a note and say the specialist now thinks the pain in my hip he now thinks is coming from my lower back. He's calling for more lower back x-rays. I wrote you a long letter on your personal e-mail. Cathy
Ellen-How are you doing ? Haven't heard from you for a while. I didn't feel too terrific this week and didn't come on the site for a few days. I had the endoscopy on Tuesday and the GI doc said everything looked normal. That was good news, but I still have some reflux. Has your throat improved ?
The snow is slowly melting, but they have predicted some for Wed. night. Yuck ! We are continuing to get rid of things from the house. We haven't heard anything from Ann's Choice yet about our apt.
I hope you enjoy the warmer weather this weekend. Susan
Hi Ellen...A very pretty page looks like Spring.I cannot believe that we change clocks Saturday nigh SPRING AHEAD. The new pill still working and I am not groggy at all in the morning. I have TOPS tomorrow. Program RAP SESSION. We have a book sake bring foor for the church food pantry and a Ra[ Session the first meeting of every month. Gloomy day chilly rain. Hope all is well with you. HUGS,Reed
HELLO LOTS. THINGS ARE LOOKING UP I THINK. THE NEW SLEEPING pill is working So far 4 good nights of skeep. I gave blood today for 2 doctors. I got there at 7 and went right in. Today sunny and 81 tomorrow low 50's. No wonder we get colds. Mine is gone. Russ is 85% better. He sees a lung man March 10 I think they suspect COPD. Not curable but treatable.How are you feeling? I hope much better and no upsets. I have no family except for cousins I rarely hear from. Russ has his nephew Tom. I think as we age we all have bouts of depression and wonder what is next.TOPS Wed. It will be long as we have lots of business to do for Headquarters. How is doggie. Chico was in for a little while. When they go away they keep him in and he goes nuts when they let him out. Take good. HUGS,Reed
Hi Ellen. Looking at your page I have to say, Happy Spring! We'll have -4 degrees tomorrow night, then the temps. should start going up, just in time for Daylight's Savings Time. We'll know it's becoming spring-like when our Junco flock moves on.
Yes, I'm up and around, but I have to take a hot shower before bedtime in order to sleep. There just isn't any good position for my bad shoulder, and the heat helps. Another 6 weeks or so for therapy--I think. Hard to tell. In the meantime, things are going well enough, except for Aggie. I don't feel like writing about her again, so I'll just refer you to the Pets and People Group, my discussion called Epilepsy. I'm glad that Ammi and Zen are slowing adjusting to becoming friends--I was always sure that it would happen. Zen's both sweet and stubborn, I take it! Hope you are feeling well. Trudy
HI Ellen-I love your Springy page. We really need spring fast, with 10" of snow expected tonight and tomorrow we really need to think spring. I wrote you a PM yesterday, but before I could send it the message disappeared into cyberspace. I hope your throat is better & you are feeling OK. I have been drinking ginger/lemon tea each morning and the reflux is much better. I don't take the omeprazole every evening, only sometimes. I am scheduled for an endoscopy on Tuesday, but with the major storm coming tomorrow I don't know if I will get to the doc. He is leaving for a 3 week vacation on Wed. I may have to wait until the end of March to have it. Are you expecting any bad weather tomorrow ? Glad to hear the furballs are finally friends. Does Ammi like the snow ? Hope you have a good week. Susan
Hey lady!!! How are you? Been CRAZY here! Timothy (son) had his hernia surgery. I finished the report cards (finally)...then Len was in the hosp for a week with sciatica (he couldn't walk). He's home now, on meds...but frequently feels dizzy. Then I had 2 days of parent/teacher interviews. Had a massive headache the day after, which is typical! In all that, running around doing the stuff Len usually took care of. Still dire Winter here. I'm BEGGING for Spring!
2 weeks of March Break starting on the 10th....cannot wait!!!!
Honestly...sometimes I despair, and I have to force myself to go out!
Thank God for this place!
I love your page Ellen....the pretty Spring colours give hope!
luv and baskets of hugs....linda ♥
Hi Lots. I am going to pm you this weekend - a little tired today because, like Reed, I got NO sleep. Stayed in all day. Someone is moving out of the building and they have been tramping up and down the stairs all afternoon, making lots of noise. We may have a slight warmup come next Thursday. I think I've been taking restaril for about 8 years - started on 30 mg and then 2 years ago went up to 45. I'd say it works about 2/3 of the time, which is most certainly better than nothing!
I was going to grow my hair out and of course it reach a scraggly looking point and I impulsively went to Great Clips and let her cut quite a bit off. Then I put my own red and blonde highlight on it with a toothbrush.
Have a good weekend. I love your spring colors!!
Hey sis - glad the sleeping pills are working. Mine usually take a couple of hours to take effect. I also take 3 mg of melatonin, which my doc suggested. I think by the spring equinox we will STILL be up to our armpits in snow. Un freakin' believable. And now tomorrow the HIGH will be -1. Pffft......
Hi Ellen-I was so happy to hear from you. Sorry that your throat is still bad. My acid reflux is somewhat better. A friend of mine got a recipe to help with reflux from a Holistic doctor. It is fresh ground ginger with 2tsp of fresh lemon juice and pour in hot water. She drinks it first thing in the morning and her reflux is gone. I am drinking ginger lemon tea in the morning.
We really don't gave a moving date yet. When one of the apts we picked becomes empty, they call people to see if they want it. Some people turn it down b/c they aren't ready to move. Then they will call us, I hope. We can move in before the house is sold, some people cannot do that. Meanwhile, we are getting rid of so many things we gave saved for years. Pots and pans and baking dishes, tons of vases we saved over the years. Also I trimmed down my wardrobe and got rid of clothes I haven't worn in years. It is amazing how much stuff people accumulate when you have a big house to keep it in.
We had some more snow this morning, but it is off the roads now. The sun us out even though the temp is only 29. Supposed to get very cold tomorrow night and Friday. March will be here on Sat. and spring in three weeks. Yippee! Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care. Cat
Hello Lots .Nice page. My favorite color. Rotten day. I went to bed at 11 and at 4 I am still awake. This sets me up to be dragged out all day. I called the shrink. He does not work on Monday.My BIG THRILL today. I went to the drug store. I think the fall has made my knees and legs worse. I can hardly walk. I get so tired of it all. My elbow doing ok. No smarting. I did manage to get to church. Hope things are better with you. Take good care. A BIG HUG,Reed
Ellen-Did you get my PM ? I thought I sent it to you yesterday, but it is not in my inbox. Please let me know. It is so nice today. I took a walk on my patio and path. I think it was in the 50's, supposed to be nice tomorrow too. By Monday it will get cold again and more snow for Tuesday. We did more cleaning out today of things I haven't used in years, tossed more pics too. Hope you are feeling OK. Glad the furballs are getting along it makes for a happier home. Take care. Cat
Good Morning to you. Noy sleeping great but getting some. Still sore from the fall. The cancer incision smarts. We changed the bandage and it looks good. What a storm we had yesterday even had hail.I see your page has my favorite color. I think Russ might have COPD..he finds out 3.10I am having cabin fever. I might go shopping with Tom.Hope you continue to improve. Has your house finally been settled. Take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
Hi Lots-Another beautiful page. I really missed them. No one can produce a page like you. Thanks for the message and pic. I am having some nasty reflux and swallowing problems. I saw a GI doc I have used before. He will do an endoscopy after I have a swallow test. I am not happy about this new development. My walking is still not as good as I would like it to be.
We have been getting rid of lots of stuff. Went thru 4 large boxes of pics from my parents and Jim's. I didn't even know who many of the people were. Some ancient relatives, I guess. Have your BG settled down yet ? Thanks heavens, mine have been pretty good. I hope you continue to feel well. Spring is less than a month away. Yippee !!! Cat
Hi Ellen. I read your update on Reed's page. I'm glad the only (ha!) problem had to do with technology. I'm also glad that Ammi and Zen are now friends, makes life easier for everybody!
Once we had 3 mini Dachsies. The older female (Crystal) would not tolerate another female (Wendy) around "her" male (Cappie). We set up a fence between the kitchen and the rest of the house; Crystal ruled the kitchen and Wendy lived in the rest of the house; Cappie visited both of the ladies.
Hope your week is going well, all the technology behaving itself...
glad to see you back on reed's page. I get frustrated w technology too. there's too much to know. you have to limit yourself, and have unplugged time. even manny, the techno-wiz, goes completely unplugged for days at a time on occasion. (not very often).
LOVE your new profile picture! very pretty, you look great in glasses. hugs to your furry friends, glad they are getting along.
Hi Lots-I am very glad that you are OK. We were all worried when no one heard from you until now. I am sick of the snow. This area has had over 60" of snow this winter. I know you like it, I do too, but this is ridiculous. I am back in PT, going 2x a week. What is new in your life? I saw where Zen and Ammi are getting along. It just takes a while for that to happen. Zen will always be in charge. We used to have a dog and a cat at the same time and the cat was always the boss. Hope to hear from you soon. Love, Cat
Hello my Good friend. How are you. Finally happened. I FELL. Nothing broken. SORE. Russ could not lift me but somehow I got up. 75 and sunny today. Miss hearing from you. Things better? House finished? Give me best to Chris. HUGS,Reed
