Oh my husband is VERY bad at that too. He has needles phobia...so the docor, nonetheless, the hospital is the LAST place he wants to be. But my Mom can be so hard headed herself too. The only reason why I convinced her to go to the ER is that I scared her of "surgery". And she doesnt want that...now does she. LOL Im just trying to make her feel better ...she just retired from her career last March...and I do not want her to feel depressed.
Right now...exhausted like hell! Im keeping an eye on her every hour LOL We had to wait at the ER for hours...after the first and second enema thingy did not work...so she hits the treadmill for another 20 minutes... I just cant stand looking at her in pain...I was trying to joke around and make her laugh. Unfortunately...she doesn't wish to be confined at the hospital...and wanted to go home. So...here we are. Her doctor has given me tons of directions to do.
Hi Doris...I wasn't here your night (my whole day today). We brought my Mom to the ER this morning...bad constipation! And she only told me today the fact that she have had it for 4 days now!.Agh! Well...I wouldn't want to go on detail with her procedure...LOL Other than I had to get her some grapes, papaya and castor oil too. She is home resting now...got me panicked a bit.
How have you been?
I was shocked Crystal didn't win. oh well, it's all the girls and grandmothers voting for the cute boy over the real talent. anyway, I must get some sewing done today. My mom just called and wants to know if I want all my dad's diabetes supplies, b/c she says he's never going to get out of the nursing floor. I say just wait, and I can take them next time we go down there. She totally has her priorities in the wrong place! She told me he needed foot cream, so I asked my sister to pick it up before she left to go down there on Tuesday. Since she's been there, they have been to the CVS and a big grocery store, and did anybody bother to pick it up????? NO. but they had time to go to Marshall's and try on clothes! I give up. I need some theraputic sewing. #bgnow 104 :)))
jeez, what a busy day for me. soooo many emails! we are having a sticky situation with someone at the guild, and it has to be handled with the utmost diplomacy. I should have worked for the State Department instead of the Defense Dept - I'd be better at walking on eggshells. Dad was able to go to poker night last night, so good. That portable oxygen machine has given him more freedom. as long as he keeps up the walking, he will improve his odds.
I hope Ed sells a bunch of stuff this afternoon. The stuff tastes really good. I took some extras to the guild yesterday and they were all wanting to know where to buy it. He's a good salesman. He really swept me off my feet when we met!
Doris, first of all, THANK YOU for sending along the links with your welcome messages. I see you have been sending sometimes multiple links - super super duper!!!!! I've just been saying things like "check out our latest app - TuAnalyze" "maybe you'll be the one to light up your state" "share your grate a1c with us" (btw, each state needs a minimum of 20 participating in order to light up)
I have to take a break here, I'm feeling not so hot. time to check my bg.
Doris, I'm going to send newbies the link to TuAnalyze, I hope you can keep on sending them the "About Us" page. I had such a busy day yesterday. #bgnow 213 - guess I'll be changing out my set today...
Hahahahahaha xD i bet it was hilarious!! , maybe you don´t drive anymore, but when you get married, you and your husband became one, so...when he drives, you´re driving too Doris !! hahahahaha

Have a nice week !!
