HELLO EVERYONE.............. OUR TEMPS WENT DOWN TODAY.......... IT'S ONLY HITTING 6C AND IT'S RAINING......... I HAD PLANNED TO PUT THE REST OF THE DECORATIONS UP OUTSIDE BUT THAT WILL HAVE TO WAIT........ I STILL HAVE SOME TIME.......

MARY............. YOU HAVE SURE BEEN BUSY............ WITH THIS BEING YOUR LAST WEEK OF THERAPY IT WILL FREE SOME TIME UP FOR YOU............ WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE KIDS BOOK YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT GETTING PUBLISHED.

WILLOW........... YES IT'S BACK TO THE KITCHEN.......... I FROZE SOME TURKEY FOR ANOTHER TIME OR FOR SANDWICHES....... YOU CAN ONLY EAT SO MANY LEFTOVERS AND THEN YOU GET SICK OF IT....... ANY YARD WORK IS HARD ON THE BODY....... IT'S GREAT YOU HAD THE LANDSCAPERS DO IT AND I BET EVERYTHING REALLY LOOKS TIDY AND CLEANED UP NOW... THANKS FOR THE FEEDBACK ON THE TEAM PICTURE......... I JUST CHANGED IT TODAY BEFORE I POSTED HERE.

LINDA.......... IT'S FUNNY HOW THAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET TALKING TO SOMEONE ON THE PHONE...... THE TIME JUST GOES BY SO FAST AND BY THE TIME YOU HANG UP YOUR EAR IS HURTING.... LOL..... CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR STILL IN THE 90'S...

DEBBIE............ GOOD TO HEAR THE STORM PASTED YOU BY............. PLUS IT'S GREAT THAT THE WORKERS ARE GOING TO COME BACK AND FIX THINGS UP.... TAKE YOUR TIME UNPACKING AND IF YOU DON'T USE SOMETHING....... I SAY THROW IT OUT.

MAC............. WELL IT'S GOOD TO FINALLY KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MOM....... I DON'T KNOW WHY DOCTORS DANCE AROUND THINGS LIKE THAT... ALTHOUGH THIS WAS SOMETHING YOU BASICALLY ALREADY KNEW........ I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA THAT YOUR SPLITTING UP THE VISITS THAT GIVES ALL OF YOU TIME TO JUST DO WHAT YOU WANT AND I KNOW YOU LOVE GOING TO TOWN AND SHOPPING A BIT...... SO IT'S GREAT THAT YOU CAN DO THAT THIS WEEK I AGREE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY AND RUN WITH IT........ I'M SURE THE STRESS LEVEL IS MUCH LOWER AT HOME RIGHT NOW......... AT THIS TIME YOU KNOW MOM IS GETTING THE BEST CARE AND NO WAY CAN SHE FOOL THE DOCTORS OR NURSES..... THEY WILL MAKE SURE TO DO WHAT IS NEEDED AND GET MOM BACK ON THE HEALTHIER SIDE.......

WELL IT'S PAST LUNCH TIME HERE.......... I JUST FEEL LAZY ON RAINY DAYS....... BUT I HAVE TO MAKE SUPPER AND DO A FEW OTHER THINGS IN THE KITCHEN............ ENJOY YOUR DAY GANG.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED THIS MORNING BUT DEFINITIVELY NO GYM TODAY. I WOKE AT 6.20 WITH THE ALARM AS I HAD PACKED MY KIT LAST NIGHT READY TO GO, AND I CAME OVER SO DIZZY THAT I FELL BACK ONTO THE BED WHEN TRYING TO STAND. MY HEAD WAS SPINNING AND MY LEGS WERE NOT MY OWN, AND HAVE NOT REALLY BEEN ALL DAY. I AM HOPING THEY ARE OK BY TOMORROW SO THAT I CAN MAKE UP FOR THE LACK OF EXERCISE TODAY.

SPENT THIS AFTERNOON AT THE HOSPITAL AND MUM WAS IN A REALLY BAD WAY. I GOT TO SPEAK WITH THE DOCTOR AND SHE EXPLAINED THAT THE RESULTS FROM THE CT SCAN SHOWED A MASSIVE BLOCKAGE IN HER BOWEL. THE SYMPTOMS ARE SUCH THAT IT CAN ONLY BE A SECOND TUMOUR WHICH HAS BEEN DEVELOPING SO SLOWLY THAT NOBODY PICKED IT UP EARLIER. HER THOUGHT IS THAT THE POLYP THAT COULD NOT BE REMOVED HAS SUDDENLY BECOME ACTIVE AND HAS NOW GROWN TO TH SIZE IT HAS. THIS IS NOT GOOD NEWS AT ALL. AS I TYPE MUM IS JUST OUT OF THEATRE WHERE THEY HAVE PERFORMED AN OPERATION TO PUT A BAG ON HER SIDE AND THUS NEGATE THE NEED FOR THE BOWEL TO MOVE AT ALL. IT WILL ALSO GET RID OF ANY ACID IN HER TUMMY AND PREVENT TH SICKNESS. THERE IS NO CURE FOR THE CANCERS BUT THEY WOLD HAVE ATTEMPTED TO REMOVE THE BOWEL TUMOUR IF MUM HAS BEEN BOTH YOUNGER AND A LOT STRONGER. IN HER PRESENT STATE SHE WOULD NOT SURVIVE SUCH AN OPERATION. SHE IS CURRENTLY IN RECOVERY AND THE HOSPITAL ARE GOING TO PHONE AGAIN ONCE SHE HAS BEEN MOVED BACK TO THE WARD TO LET US KNOW HOW SHE IS. HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL AT LEAST ALLOW HER A QUALITY OF LIFE. SHE HAS BEEN TOLD SHE WILL NOT BE GOING HOME ANY TIME SOON ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG 'SOON' IS. ALSO, ONCE AT HOME, SHE WILL BE UNDER THE DAILY CARE OF THE DISTRICT NURSE FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. ONCE SHE DOES SETTLE DOWN THERE MAY WELL BE LESS NEED FOR THE NURSE TO COME IN EVERY DAY, B UT CERTAINLY FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS SHE WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IT. IN THIS SHE HAS NO CHOICE. AS TO WHETHER IT IS WORTH GONG TO VISIT MUM TOMORROW; WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT SHE WILL SLEEP QUITE WELL TONIGHT AS THE ANAESTHETIC WILL STILL BE IN HER SYSTEM. IF SHE IS GOING TO SLEEP ALL DAY TOMORROW AS WELL THEN THERE WILL EB LITTLE POINT IN US GOING UP TO SEE HER. OBVIOUSLY WE WILL NOT KNOW ABOUT THAT UNTIL TOMORROW WHEN I WILL PHONE AND GET THE JUDGMENT FROM THE NURSES WHO ARE ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL WITH HER.

LINDA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION; YES, SHE DOES KNOW ABOUT THE CANCER AND HAS ACCEPTED IT. SHE IS NOT TOO BOTHERED REALLY AND WILL TAKE IT AS IT COMES. SHE HAS SAID THAT SHE IS READY TO JOIN MY FATHER AS SHE HAS HAD A DECENT LIFE SO NO COMPLAINTS. I JUST WISH SHE HAD ALLOWED US TO GET HER SOME ATTENTION A LOT EARLIER. AS FOR YOU AND THAT HUMIDITY; I AM SURE YOU WILL BE PLEASED TO HEAR THAT THE TEMPS AND THE HUMIDITY ARE GOING TO CALM DOWN A BIT OVER THE COMING WEEKEND. AS IS AY, I HAVE EXPERIENCE OF UP TO 100C AND 90% HUMIDITY WHEN IN SAUDI AS WE WERE ONT EH GULF COAST, AND IT WAS LIKE STEPPING INTO A SHOWER AS SOON AS YOU WALKED OUT OF TE AIR CONDITIONED ROOMS. THEN YOU WERE INSTANTLY COLD WHEN YOU WENT BACK INTO THE HOUSE OR THE OFFICE SO NO WONDER IT WAS THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR CATCHING COLDS. SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND DEFINITELY NOT TO OVERDO THINGS EXERCISE WISE. I ALSO KNOW HOW DRAINING IT CAN BE ON THE BODY AND HOW MUCH EXTRA FLUID YOU NEED TO DRINK. PLEASE TAKE CARE.

DEBBIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH. RIGHT NOW SHE HAS A DRIP PLUS A DRAINAGE TUBE IN HER NOSE AND THEY WILL STAY FOR A TIME UNTIL HER BAG STARTS TO WORK. MUM HAS SAID THAT SHE WOULD BE QUITE HAPPY TO STAY ON THE DRIP FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE AS IT MEANS SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO EAT ANYTHING. AS I TRIED TO SAY TO HER THOUGH, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. WITH THE PROCEDURE SHE HAS HAD SHE WILL BE ABLE TO EAT AND DRINK AS NORMAL IF SHE SO WISHES, BUT UNLESS THE DRIP OR A FEEDING TUBE IS PUT IN PERMANENTLY THEN IT WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL ONCE SHE GETS HOME. BECASUE SHE WILL NOT BE HOME FOR A WHILE I MA HOPING THAT THE HOSPITAL CAN ENCOURAGE HER TO START EATING AGAIN AND SO CAN GET RID OF THE DRIP ALTOGETHER. THAT, HOWEVER, IS OUT OF MY HANDS.

WILLOW, THE GOOD THING ONCE MUM HAS RECOVERED IS THAT SHE WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE TUMMY PAINS AS TH WIND WILL HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND SHE WILL EB ABLE TO CARRY ON WITH THINGS AS NORMAL. MY AUNT HAD THIS PROCEDURE AND SHE LIVED FOR YEARS AFTERWARDS AND DEFINITELY ENJOYED HERSELF. I CANNOT SEE THIS WITH MUM BECAUSE OF HER OTHER CANCER, BUT AT LEAST SHE WILL BE PAIN FREE FOR THE TIME BEING AND WILL NOT BE ILL ALL OF THE TIME. MUM ASKED THE DOCTOR IF IT WAS WORTH IT AT HER STAGE IN LIFE AND WITH HER CONDITION AND THE DOCTOR SAID YES IT WAS, WHCIH IS WHY SHE WANTED TO GO AHEAD AND GET IT DONE. GIVEN MUM'S STATE IT WAS A HUGE RISK STILL, BUT AFTER IT WAS ALL EXPLAINED TO HER AND AFTER DOCTOR HAD TOLD HER IT WAS WORTH IT SHE GAVE HER CONSENT FOR TH OP TO GO AHEAD. SHE COULD HAVE REFUSED BUT THEN SHE WOULD NOT LIVE UNTIL CHRISTMAS. THAT IS WHAT THE DOCTOR ALSO PREDICTED. NOW IT IS A QUESTION OF WAITING TO SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES FOR EVERYTHING TO SETTLE DOWN.

MARY, BOY YOU HAVE BEEN BUSY. NO WONDER YOU HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO POP IN. THE FINAL WEEK OF YOUR PT EH? THAT WILL BE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU ALTHOUGH I KNOW YOU WILL WANT TO TRY AND KEEP IT GOING WITH SOME FORM OF EXERCISE, BUT AT LEAST YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO SUFFER THE THERAPIST PUSHING YOU ALL OF THE TIME AND CAN DO THINGS AT YOUR PACE AND IN YOUR OWN TIME. SO MUCH FOR PART TIME WORK, LOL. IT IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE LIKE YOU ARE BACK FULL TIME WITH MEETINGS AND SUCH LIKE. STILL, AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ENJOYING IT THEN THAT S WHAT COUNTS. AND ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE YOU ARE NOW IN A RUSH TO FINISH THE DOLLS FOR YOUR FRIEND. YOUR LIFE IS DEFINITELY NOT BORING, LOL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. IT IS A QUESTION OF WAITING NOW TO SEE IF THE OP HAS WORKED.

ACTUALLY I WANT OT SAY A BIG THANK YO TO EVERY ONE OF YOU FOR YOUR KIND THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. WE ARE NOW IN AS WAITING PHASE AS, ALTHOUGH IT IS QUITE A SIMPLE PROCEDURE AND A COMMON ONE, THERE ARE NEVER ANY GUARANTEES OF SUCCESS. THE SCENARIO I HAVE INDICTED IS TEH IDEAL ONE WHERE, SHOULD IT HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL, MUM WILL HAVE A QUALITY OF LIFE AND WILL BE ABLE TO CARRY ON AS NORMAL, AND THAT IS ALL WE CAN ASK FOR. IN FACT, SHE WILL NOT HAVE TO TAKE SO MANY MEDS AND WILL BE ABLE TO ENJOY FOOD AND DRINK SHOULD SHE SO WISH. THE THING WE ARE MOST WANTING FOR HER, HOWEVER, IS TO SPEND ANOTHER CHRISTMAS WITH US. YE4S, IT MAY BE HER LAST, BUT BECAUSE SHE SO ENJOYS CHRISTMAS TIME, IT IS MY ONE WISH THAT SHE IS HOME FOR IT SO CAN OPEN HER PRESENTS JUST AS IF SHE WERE A CHILD AGAIN. JUST TO SEE HER FACE BEAMING MAKES EVERYTHING WORTHWHILE ON THAT PARTICULAR DAY.

ANYWAY, I WILL LEAVE YOU FOR THE TIME BEING BUT I WILL BE BACK IN A COUPLE OF HOURS. I HOPE YOU ALL; HAVE A SUPER FABULOUS DAY.

MAC....SO SORRY ABOUT MUM....I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO SEE SOMEONE YOU LOVE SUFFERING......I JUST HOPE THEY CAN RELIEVE THE PAIN..........SOMETIMES DOING THINGS JUST TO PROLONG A LIFE OF PAIN IS NOT THE RIGHT CHOICE EITHER....AT A TIME LIKE THIS I GUESS YOU JUST HAVE TO FOLLOW HER DECISIONS EVEN IF IT IS NOT WHAT YOU WOULD CHOOSE.

DEBBIE.....GLAD THE STORM MISSED YOU.....ALSO GOOD THAT YOU HAVE FINALLY GOT ALL YOUR BELONGINGS MOVED IN......SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A LOT OF WORK AHEAD OF YOU....TAKE YOUR TIME UNPACKING AND ENJOY YOURSELF..... THIS IS THE TIME TO BE DISCRIMINATING AND IF YOU DON'T REALLY, REALLY LOVE SOMETHING NOW MIGHT BE THE TIME TO LET IT GO INSTEAD OF TRYING TO FIND A PLACE FOR IT.

STARR......IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE STARTING TO ADJUST TO LIFE WITHOUT YOUR DH......IT IS OK TO DO THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY, THAT IS WHAT YOUR DH WOULD WANT YOU TO DO....IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP INVOLVED WITH OTHER PEOPLE.

SHERRE.......I MADE UP SOME DINNERS WITH THE LEFTOVER TURKEY SO IT IS ALL DONE AND PUT AWAY NOW....NOW I GUESS WE START COOKING AGAIN.......I HAD THE LANDSCAPERS HERE THIS MORNING.........THEY TRIMMED ALL THE SHRUBS AND THE JAPANESE MAPLE BACK, CUT DOWN THE CLEMATIS AND ALL THE OTHER SUMMER PLANTS AND HAULED IT ALL AWAY.....2 YOUNG GALS AND IT TOOK THEM ABOUT 2 HOURS.......NOW ALL THAT IS LEFT IS THE FINAL TOUCHES MY DH WOULD LIKE TO DO TO FINISH THINGS UP..........IT IS THE SAME COMPANY THAT PUT THE THINGS IN A FEW YEARS AGO............THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE HAD THEM DO THE FALL CLEANUP......SO MUCH EASIER FOR MY DH AS HE IS NOT FOND OF THAT KIND OF WORK...........HE LIKES MAKING THINGS AND REPAIR WORK OF ANY KIND MUCH BETTER THAN GARDENING.

HELLO EVERYONE ; )

I AM JUST QUICKLY RUNNING THROUGH TO SEE HOW EVERYONE IS DOING. I SURVIVED THE STORMS, THE WORKMEN ARE PROMISING TO COME BACK AND MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT AND MY COUSIN IS WAITING ON TEST RESULTS TO DETERMINE HER NEXT COURSE OF ACTION.

MAC, I AM SO TERRIBLY SORRY ABOUT YOUR MUM'S DIAGNOSIS. I HOPE THEY CAN AT THE VERY LEAST KEEP HER COMFORTABLE. THE FEEDING TUBE MIGHT BE A REAL BLESSING. I WILL KEEP IT ALL IN PRAYER.

I HAVE A HEADACHE SO I AM CALLING IT A NIGHT. MY BEST TO YOU ALL

; )

I WENT TO CURVES TODAY AND ALSO GOT IN A WALK. IT RAINED LATER IN THE DAY SO I WORKED ON LAUNDRY AND OTHER CHORES. I NEEDED TO DO SOME OTHER THINGS BUT THAT WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW. TWO PHONE CALLS TODAY FROM DAUGHTERS. THAT IS ALWAYS NICE. I DON'T GET A CALL EXCEPT A COUPLE OF TIMES PER WEEK. SO EACH TIME IS NICE. ONE OF MY FRIENDS CALLED ME LAST NIGHT JUST BEFORE MIDNIGHT. SHE KNOWS THAT I STAY UP LATE AND WE TALKED UNTIL 1 AM THIS MORNING. IT WAS NICE BUT I WOKE UP EARLY THIS MORNING AND A BIT TIRED. OH WELL, IT WAS NICE TO TALK TO HER ANYWAY.

MAC - MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOUR MOTHER AND WITH YOU (AND FAMILY) AS YOU DEAL WITH THE CANCER DIAGNOSIS. MY MOTHER DIED OF CANCER AND I KNOW IT IS A TERRIBLE ILLNESS TO HAVE. DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW ABOUT THE DIAGNOSIS? I AM HAPPY THAT THE DOCTOR FINALLY TOLD YOU THE REAL TRUTH, THAT IT IS CANCER. IT IS EASIER TO DEAL WITH ANY SITUATION WHEN WE KNOW THE TRUTH. GOOD FOR YOU FOR TAKING TURNS VISITING HER. IT WILL MAKE IT A LITTLE EASIER WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO ATTEND THE HOSPITAL EVERYDAY. YES, NOT ONLY IS IT HOT HERE BUT HUMID AS WELL. THE METEOROLOGISTS SAY THAT THE TEMPS WILL BE LOW 80s THIS WEEKEND WITH LOWER HUMIDITY. THAT WILL BE NICE. LAST WEEK, AND EVEN YESTERDAY, IT WAS NEAR 90.

CEREBELLUM - I DIDN'T REALLY HAVE FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS BEFORE OR AFTER THE FLU SHOT. REALLY IT IS A LOT OF FATIGUE. MY CARDIOLOGIST HAS ME SCHEDULED WITH A SLEEP CENTER TO HAVE A SLEEP STUDY IN DECEMBER. I ALWAYS HAVE HAD TROUBLE SLEEPING. ANXIOUS TO SEE IF I HAVE SLEEP APNEA. ALTHOUGH, I DO NOT WANT TO WEAR THE APPARATUS FOR SLEEP APNEA. IF IT MADE ME FEEL BETTER DURING THE DAY...I GUESS IT WOULD BE WORTH IT. I ALSO TAKE A PROBIOTIC EVERYDAY. IT DOES HELP.

STARR - I AM SURE IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SEE ALAN'S BIRTHDAY COME AND GO AFTER HIS DEATH. IT IS A GOOD THING FOR YOU TO BE SO ACTIVE WITH THE GROUP AND BIBLE STUDY.. AT LEAST IT GIVES YOU SOME SUPPORT. THE AUXILLARY IS A GOOD ORGANIZATION FOR YOU, ALSO.

SHERRY - YES, I DO LOVE EATING TURKEY AND ALL OF THE FIXINGS. I AM SURE THAT YOU AND DOUG ENJOYED YOUR MEAL.

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE AND RESTFUL EVENING.

AM CALLING IT A DAY. I WILL HAVE TO BE UP EARLY TOMORROW AS I WANT TO CATCH THE FIRST BUS INTO OWN AND THEN GT TO THE GYM EARLY SO THAT I FINISH MY WORKOUT IN PLENTY OF TIME TO GO AND SEE MUM.

WILL JUST DO A CARDIO WORKOUT AS TRISH HAS ADVISED ME THAT THE WARD IS MILES AWAY FROM THE MAIN ENTRANCE, SO I WILL DO MY STRENGTH STUFF PUSHING MYSELF IN THE CHAIR. WILL PROBABLY DO THE SAME AGAIN THURSDAY AND SEE HOW IT GOES.

HAVE A SUPER EVENING EVERYONE, AND ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS. SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

FIRST OF ALL A BELATED HAPPY emoticon THANKSGIVING TO ALL CANADIANS WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.

SECONDLY, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR MESSAGES OF LOVE AND SUPPORT FOR MYSELF AND THE FAMILY, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, FOR MY MOTHER.

MUM WAS TRYING TO PUT A BRAVE FACE ON THINGS ON MONDAY BUT I WAS NOT HAVING IT AND KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS TRYING OT DO SO I PHONED THE DOCTOR AND HE DULY CAME OUT TO HAVE A LOOK AND SEE WHAT THE PROBLEMS WERE. HE SPENT QUITE A TIME WITH MUM AND WHEN HE CAME DOWN HE WAITED UNTIL TRISH WAS DOWN AS WELL SO THAT HE COULD TELL US WHAT HE WOULD LIKE TO DO. AT THIS POINT I HAD NOT SAID ANYTHING. TRISH WAS WITH HIM WHEN HE DID HIS EXAMINATION WHILST I WAITED DOWNSTAIRS.

ANYWAY, HE EXPLAINED THAT MUM DEFINITELY HAS CANCER AND THAT IT IS TERMINAL. IT WAS SOMETHING WE GATHERED ANYWAY BUT HE IS THE FIRST DOCTOR TO ACTUALLY COME OUT DIRECTLY AND SAY IT RATHER THAN, LIKE THE OTHERS, DANCING ALL AROUND THE SUBJECT. HE ALSO THOUGHT THAT THE WIND WAS BEING CAUSED BY A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE IN HER BOWELS. HE THEN SAID SOMETHING I DID NOT KNOW. MUM WAS SAYING THAT ALL FOOD WAS TASTING AWFUL. WELL, WE THOUGHT THAT WAS PURELY TO DO WITH HER PALATE BEING NON-EXISTENT. IT TURNS OUT THAT BECAUSE MUM WAS NOT TAKING IN FLUIDS, IT HAD THE EFFECT OF MAKING THINGS TASTE BAD. IT WOULD BE ALOT BETTER IF SHE WERE TO START DRINKING AGAIN. HE SUGGESTED THAT THEY LOOK AT EITHER PUTTING A STENT INTO HER GULLET OR A FEEDING TUBE SO THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE TO EAT ANY FOOD AT ALL. IT WOULD BE PUTTING STUFF DIRECTLY INTO THE TUBE WHICH WOULD GO THROUGH HER NOSE AND STRAIGHT INTO HER TUMMY.

TODAY SHE HAS HAD FURTHER SCANS BUT NO RESULTS YET. HOWEVER, FROM HER INITIAL X-RAY IT LOOKS AS IF THE DOCTOR WAS CORRECT AND SHE DOES HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS BLOCKING HER BOWELS. THE REASON IT WAS NOT DISCOVERED SOONER WAS BECASUE MUM WAS NOT TAKING IN ENOUGH FOOD TO MAKE HER BOWELS MOVE.

SO RIGHT NOW THE STAFF ARE AWAITING THE RESULTS OF THE CT SCAN PLUS MUM HAS BEEN PUT ONTO A DRIP AND IS ONLY ALLOWE4D SIPS OF WATER. THERE WILL BE A MEETING OF ALL OF THE DOCTORS ONCE ALL THE RESULTS ARE IN AND THEY WILL THEN DECIDE ON THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION.

I DID NOT GO TODAY. WE HAVE DECIDED TO SPLIT THE WEEK UP. MARY AND TRISH WENT TODAY. I WILL BE GOING TO THE GYM TOMORROW MORNING AND THE HOSPITAL IN THE AFTERNOON. I WILL ALSO BE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL AGAIN THURSDAY WITH TRISH GONG FRIDAY. WE WILL PROBABLY BOTH GO ON SATURDAY BUT THEN WILL TAKE SUNDAY OFF. DOING IT THAT WAY ALLOWS US TO HAVE TIME AND SPACE AND ALSO GIVES MARY HER ONE DAY OFF AS WELL.

I MUST ADMIT THAT AFTER YESTERDAY AND ALL THE HASSLE IT WAS L;ATE AND IN THE END WE DECIDED TO GO TO BINGO TO UNWIND. OK, WE GOT HALF OF OUR MONEY BACK, BUT THAT WAS NOT THE OBJECTIVE. BASICALLY IT WAS TO ALLOW ALL THE STRESSES OUT AND JUST RELAX. WE FINISHED OFF THE EVENING WITH A CHINESE TAKE OUT AND, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN AGES, I ACTUALLY GOT A FULL AND RESTFUL SLEEP OVERNIGHT.

TODAY, I HAVE BASICALLY CAUGHT P WITH SOME HOUSEWORK AND THEN TAKEN IT EASY. I WATCHED SOME FISHING PROGRAMMES THIS AFTERNOON AND ALSO, WHILST I HAD A FREE BATHROOM, WENT FOR A GOOD SOAK INT HE TUB. IT WAS HEAVENLY. I DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY AS IF ANY OF THE GIRLS NEED INTO THE BATHROOM THEN IT MEANS I HAVE TO GET OUT AND GO THROUGH THE RIGMAROLE OF COVERING UP ETC. BELIEVE ME, WHEN EITHER MARY OR TRISH GET INTO THE TUB THEY ARE IN IT FOR HOURS AT A TIME. WHILST I DON'T GO THAT FAR, IT IS NICE OCCASIONALLY TO EB ABLE JUST TO RELAX FOR AN HOUR OR SO WITHOUT INTERRUPTION.

SO THAT IS IT. YOU ARE NOW AS UP TO DATE AS WE ARE. HOPEFULLY THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER FROM NOW ON. I DO THINK THAT IF MUM ENDS UP WITH A FEEDING TUBE SHE WILL START TO REALISE WHAT SHE IS MISSING AND THAT NOT HAVING TO EAT IS NOT ALL IT IS CRACKED UP TO BE. I WILL THUS BE HOPING THAT THE DOCTORS CHOOSE THE STENT OPTION. THERE ARE SUPPLEMENTS THEY CAN GIVE HER WHICH WILL ENSURE SHE GETS ALL THE THINGS HER BODY NEEDS BUT ALSO GIVES HER THE OPTION TO EAT SHOULD SHE FANCY DOING SO. A FEEDING TUBE WILL NOT ALLOW HER THAT OPTION.

DEBBIE, MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO YOUR COUSIN. I DO HOPE THAT SHE COMES THROUGH THIS AND THAT THE DOCTORS CAN DO SOMETHING FOR HER. I ALSO HOPE THAT THE WORKMEN DO HONOUR THEIR COMMITMENT AND COME BACK TO FIX WHAT THEY AVE NOT DONE. IS THERE NOT A TRADE ASSOCIATION YOU AN GO TO TO GET THEM TO DO SOMETHING ON YOUR BEHALF? IN THE UK WE HAVE SEVERAL DEALING WITH DIFFERENT TRADES PLUS WE ALSO HAVE OMBUDSMEN IN CHARGE WHO HAVE THE POWER TO FINE OR REVOKE LICENCES F THE COMPANIES DO NOT TOE THE LINE. I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THERE WOULD BE SOMETHING SIMILAR OVER IN YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS. BEST OF LUCK ANYWAY. ALSO, BEST OF LUCK WITH THE WEATHER. I DO HOPE THOSE STORMS PASS YOU BY AND GO SOMEWHERE THAT IS OUT OF HARMS WAY.

SHERRY, IT IS A ONCE A YEAR THING SO WHY COUNT CALORIES. I JUST HOPE YOU AND DOUG ENJOY THE DAY. AS YOU SEE, I DID NOT GIVE INT HIS TIME AND IT HAS PROVED FOR THE BEST. IT WILL ALSO GIVE US SPACE TO LIVE A LITTLE WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT LEAVING MUM ON HER OWN OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I AM GONG TO ADMIT THAT I WILL BE MAKING THE MOST OF THE OPPORTUNITY. I FULLY INTEND TO GO OUT ON FRIDAY OF THIS WEEK AS WELL, ALTHOUGH JUST TO LITERALLY GO DOWN TOWN AND HAVE A WANDER AROUND TO SEE IF I CAN GET SOME IDEAS FOR MARY'S CHRISTMAS PRESENTS. IT SI A RARE OPPORTUNITY BUT I CAN SPEND THE WHOLE DAY IF I WANT TO AND I WILL NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. TRISH WILL BE VISITING MUM AS SHE IS OUT DURING THE MORNING ANYWAY BECAUSE OF A PRIOR APPOINTMENT, SO IT MAKES SENSE. WHO KNOWS, I MAY EVEN GO TO AFTERNOON BINGO. HAVE NOT MADE UP MY MIND ON THAT ONE YET THOUGH. THANK YOU FOR LETTING THE TEAM KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING YESTERDAY. I REALLY DO APPRECIATE IT. OK, HAVE JUST READ YOUR LAST. THAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH TURKEY. THE BIRDS ARE SO BUIG THAT YOU ARE LIVING ON LEFTOVERS FOR AGES AFTERWARDS. IT IS WHY WE DON'T BUY THEM ANY MORE.

LINDA, I DARE SAY YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST TO FALL ASLEEP DURING A MINISTER'S SERMON AND OYU WILL NOT EB THE LAST. TIREDNESS CAN COME UPON US AT THE MOST INOPPORTUNE MOMENTS. I WOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW. IF IT PERSISTS THEN THERE MAY BE CAUSE, BUT IF IT NOT A REGULAR THING THEN YOU JUST NEED TO TRY AND REST A LITTLE MORE. THE HEAT WILL OBVIOUSLY NOT HELP. IS IT ALSO HUMID ON TOP? IF IT IS THEN THAT REALLY WILL NOT DO YOU ANY FAVOURS. I KNOW ONLY TOO WELL WHAT THAT IS LIKE HAVING EXPERIENCED IT AND IT IS NOT AT ALL COMFORTABLE. TAKE IT EASY AND TRY TO STAY COOL.

MONICA, HOPE EVERYTHING IS GOING OK FOR YOU. YOU ARE DOING REALLY WELL RIGHT NOW SO KEEP IT GOING. YOU ARE DOING emoticon WITH YOUR WEIGHT LOSS.

WILLOW, I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN ABOUT HALLOWE'EN. WE JUST TOOK A PAPER BAG AS WELL BUT NOW YOU CAN BUY BAGS TO TAKE OUT WITH THE KIDS AND THEY ARE HUGE. WE DO NOT GET THE KIDS GOING ROUND WITHOUT THEIR PARENTS EITHER, BUT THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE BULLIES WHO THINK IT IS FUNNY TO WAIT AND STEAL THE SWAG FORM THE LITTLE ONES. WHAT A SAD SOCIETY WE LIVE IN. NOW WE DO NOT EVEN GET THE KIDS TO COME OUT INT HE VILLAGE, AND WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING LIKE THAT. MY TWO SONS DO NOT ALLOW THEIR KIDS TO GO OUT TRICK OR TREATING, ALTHOUGH MY ELDEST, WHO RUNS A PUB, DOES GIVE OVER A SECTION TO HOST A KIDS HALLOWE'EN PARTY FOR THE LOCAL CHILDREN AND HE PAYS FOR IT AS WELL SO THAT THE KIDS WILL BE SAFE BUT AT THE SAME TIME CAN ENJOY THEMSELVES.

CEREBELLUM, I AM NOT SURE ANY MORE WHAT MY MOTHER WILL THINK BUT HOPEFULLY SHE WILL BE A LOT BETTER BY THE TIME SHE GETS OUT. AT THIS STAGE WE JUST DO NOT KNOW AND I THINK THAT IS ALSO PREYING ON MUM'S MIND AS WELL. SHE IS NOT AFRAID OF THE CANCER AND HAS ACCEPTED THAT BUT SHE IS A WORRIER AND THE SLIGHTEST THING CAUSES HER STRESS, WHCIH OF COURSE DOES NOT HELP. AT LEAST SHE IS ABLE TO GET ROUND THE CLOCK CARE AT THE MOMENT AND THAT IS WHAT SHE NEEDS.

STARR, YOU SAY RIGHT AT TH END THAT IT IS NOTHING EXCITING, BUT IS EXCITING REALLY NECESSARY. YOU ARE NOW GETTING YOURSELF ACTIVELY INVOLVED WITH AN ORGANISATION AND I THINK OYU MIGHT JUST FIND THAT THIS WILL TAKE UP A LOT OF YOUR TIME. IT IS NO SMALL THING YOU HAVE TAKEN RESPONSIBILITY FOR AND I CAN ONLY WISH YOU EVERY SUCCESS. AS YOU SAY, WITH SUCH A LARGE VETERANS COMMUNITY IT WOULD BE A SHAME FOR THEM NOT TO HAVE SOMEWHERE TO GO TO OR TOT URN TO FOR ASSISTANCE SHOULD THEY NEED IT. I AM PLEASED FOR YOU THAT THE GRIEF CLASSES AR WORKING. OF COURSE YOU ARE NOT HAPPY FOR THE REASON BEHIND IT. NOBODY WOULD BE. STILL, YOU ARE LEARNING A LOT AND PERHAPS ONE DAY YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PASS ON THAT KNOWLEDGE TO SOMEONE ELSE. I ALSO LIKE YOUR JUDGMENT IN GONG TO CHURCH ON ALAN'S BIRTHDAY. IT IS GREAT BECAUSE YOU ARE ABLE TO CELEBRATE HIS BIRTHDAY ION A DIFFERENT, BUT POSSIBLY A MORE POIGNANT, WAY. GOOD FOR YOU.

WELL, THAT HAS BROUGHT YOU UP TO DATE WITH EVERYTHING. I AM NOW JUST RELAXING AND AM GOING TO PLAY A HIDDEN OBJECT GAME FRO THE NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS, AFTER WHICH I WILL BE BACK TO CATCH UP WITH ANY OF YOU WHO HAVE POPPED IN.

HAVE A GLORIOUS DAY WHATEVER THE WEATHER.

Good morning all. I've been up since before 5. That is when DD dropped off my grand-dog for me to dog-sit while she is at work. I tried to go back to sleep, but no luck.

Mac.......prayers going out to your mom and all your family.

I have been asked by the ladies auxiliary commander at the DAV to take charge of the membership dept. I told Terry that I was willing to give it a try, but was not going to make any promises on success. She said that she just wanted someone to try. Said that if we do not get more ACTIVE members, the auxiliary will probably have to shut down by the end of next year due to no participation. Since our chapter is the largest in Oklahoma for the DAV & DAVA, it would be a shame and a dis-service for Oklahoma veterans to not have a local place where they can get help when they need it. So yesterday I spent part of the day composing a well thought out letter. If Terry ok's it today, I will be sending it to the more then 200 non-active members. I'm thankful that the DAV is providing pre-printed address labels, postage stamps and envelopes. Out of 200 people, if just 10 of them would become active, it would be a blessing. Both Alan & I are life time members of the DAV & DAVA, and before he go to where he could not use his hands, arms as well, had a hard time talking and was in more pain then ever, he & I were very active members. Now that I have become involved again, I find that there is not anyone in the auxiliary who was there a couple years ago, and only 2 or 3 of the DAV members are still there from back when Alan & I were active. It saddens me. Anyway, I am praying for some good response from this letter that I am going to send out. And I know that if it is God's will, it will happen.

Speaking of God, I am now in my 6th week of my grief share classes. Which, I am happy to say, is very biblical based. Our last class will be the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. On average, there is 10 men/women in the class. I'm am learning a lot about grief. I do NOT like the REASON that I am there, but I am finding it helpful to be face to with others who have been thru what I am going thru. One ladies DH passed away just a few weeks after my Alan did, and he was also sick an extended length of time with cancer. And his doctor also told him, as Alan's did him, that he would not live that long. Both my Alan and her DH proved both doctors wrong.

Alan's birthday would have been September 28th. I went to church that day and had several people tell me that I was brave for coming to church on Alan's birthday. I said, why stay home? It won't make me feel any better to be at home then to be at church when I can be loved on. It won't bring my sweet DH back. And if he were here, he would be telling me to go to church.

So, anyway, that is some of what I have been up to. Not really anything exciting. I'm not sure why, but I just have not had any desire to get on the computer the past 10 days or so. Actually, to be honest, I've not had a desire to do anything.
Ok, that is it for me for now.

Love you guys,
~~Starr~~

MAKE 2020 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

"RIP MY SWEET, SWEET ALAN. I WILL LOVE & MISS YOU FOREVER."

HI EVERYONE!

SHERRY- HOPE YOU HAD A NICE THANKSGIVING. I LOVE THANKSGIVING, AND ALL THE TURKEY, BUT OURS ISN'T UNTIL NEXT MONTH! I DON'T GET ANY KIDS AT ALL AT HALLOWEEN AND NEVER DID. THERE AREN'T MANY ON THIS STREET, AND EVEN IF THERE WERE, THEY PROBABLY WOULDN'T COME DOWN MY LONG DRIVE. I USED TO BUY CANDY JUST IN CASE AND THEN TAKE IT TO WORK WHEN I DIDN'T GET ANY KIDS, BUT NOW I'M NOT WORKING AND I JUST DON'T GET ANY. MAC'S MUM GOING INTO THE HOSPITAL IS PROBABLY FOR THE BEST, BUT IT IS HARD ON THE REST OF THE FAMILY.

DEBBIE- I'M GLAD YOUR FRIEND SURPRISED YOU WITH A GIFT OF FOOD! THAT IS SOMETHING ALMOST EVERYONE CAN USE. A FRIEND GOT ME A THING OF FRUIT ONCE AND I ENJOYED IT FOR QUITE AWHILE.

MAC- I'M GLAD YOU TOOK MUM TO THE HOSPITAL AND DIDN'T WAIT AS LONG AS SHE WANTED. I'M SORRY THAT SHE HAS TO BE ADMITTED. IT WILL BE BETTER FOR HER, AT LEAST THEY CAN GET FLUIDS INTO HER, BUT IT IS HARD ON YOU! SOMEDAY SHE WILL SEE THAT IT IS FOR HER OWN GOOD, ESPECIALLY IF SHE WAS EXPERIENCING PAIN IN HER STOMACH.

WILLOW- I TRY TO EAT A LOT OF FIBER AND TAKE PROBIOTICS SO THAT I CAN STAY A LITTLE REGULAR. I HAVE HEARD THAT DIVERTICULITIS IS VERY PAINFUL AND DON'T NEED ANYTHING ELSE WRONG WITH ME. WHEN I WAS A KID (A LONG TIME AGO) WE USED TO TAKE PILLOWCASES ON HALLOWEEN. I HAVE SEEN SOME OF THE BAGS AND PUMPKINS FOR SALE NOW AND WONDER HOW EVERYTHING WOULD FIT IN. COURSE WE USED TO BE OUT LONGER THAN THEY ARE NOW!

LINDA- I'M GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER. MAYBE IT WAS FROM THE SHOT. IF YOU WERE FEELING SICK BEFORE THE SHOT, I AM SURPRISED THEY WOULD GIVE IT TO YOU.

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY. I WOKE UP EARLY BECAUSE HUBBY SAID THAT WE WERE GOING TO GO TO THE MALL. WE HAD A 10 DOLLAR OFF COUPON AT THE STORE I WANTED TO GO TO. I ENDED UP FINDING A NICE PURSE THAT WAS ON SALE FOR 30% OFF AND THEN THE 10 DOLLAR COUPON AS WELL. I WAS HAPPY BECAUSE IT WAS JUST WHAT I WANTED. WE ALSO DECIDED TO GO TO THE MOVIE. WE HAD SOME EXTRA TIME SO WE STOPPED AT MCDONALDS AND GOT A COFFEE AND SPLIT A LARGE FRIES. YUMMY! I KNOW IT WAS NOT A GREAT CHOICE, BUT WE DIDN'T GET A SANDWICH JUST THE FRIES. WE THEN WENT TO SEE THE MOVIE, THE JUDGE. IT WAS GOOD WITH VERY GOOD ACTING. I ALSO WALKED FOR OVER 3 MILES. SO IT WAS A PRETTY NICE DAY.

WILLOW AND SHERRY - I DO FEEL BETTER TODAY. I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT YOU BOTH ENJOYED THANKSGIVING. WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT MONTH. I ALWAYS ENJOY THANKSGIVING MEALS.YUM!

DEBBIE - I HOPE THAT YOU DID NOT GET THE BAD STORMS. FROM WHAT I SAW ON THE WEATHER MAP, IT DOES LOOK BAD IN THE NORTH AND MIDWESTERN STATES.

HELLO ; )

WE'RE UNDER SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AND TORNADO WATCHES - HAVE BEEN ALL DAY AND IT WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE EVENING. I WENT TO TOWN AND DID A FEW ERRANDS BEFORE THE SKIES OPENED UP. NOW LUCI AND I ARE SNUGGLED UP IN MY CHAIR WITH THE STORM COVERAGE ON THE TV. WILL HAVE TO WATCH MY TV SHOWS ON THE COMPUTER FOR TONIGHT BECAUSE IT WILL BE WALL TO WALL STORM COVERAGE.

I GOT MY FLU SHOT, HAD LUNCH AND JUST HAVE TO REHEAT SUPPER. TURKEY SEEMS TO BE THE PROTEIN OF THE MOMENT ; )

HAVE A GOOD EVENING!

I HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF DAYS NOT FEELING TOO WELL. MORE OF A STOMACH BUG THING. I FELT BETTER THIS MORNING AND WANTED TO GO TO CHURCH WITH HUBBY. I FELT FINE; THE MINISTER BEGAN TO SPEAK AND IMMEDIATELY I FELL ASLEEP. I HATED THAT. I GUESS I NEEDED TO REST UP A BIT MORE. I DO NOT REMEMBER MUCH OF THE SERVICE BECAUSE I WAS SLEEPING ALMOST THE ENTIRE TIME. I DID WALK TO THE STORE LATER WITH JERRY WHICH WAS NICE JUST TO GET OUT IN THE AIR. HOWEVER, IT HAS BEEN SO HOT. A BIT WARMER THAN USUAL FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. IT SHOULD BE AROUND 80 INSTEAD OF ALMOST 90 DEGREES. IN FACT,I WENT INTO THE POOL A COUPLE OF DAYS THIS PAST WEEK. FELT REFRESHING. I FINALLY GOT MY FLU SHOT THIS WEEK. I CERTAINLY DO GET THEM EVERY YEAR. I CERTAINLY DO NOT WANT THE FLU.

SHERRY - I KNOW THAT YOU ARE BUSY MAKING THE THANKSGIVING MEAL. I AM SURE THAT IT WILL BE DELICIOUS. I HOPE THAT IT IS A GREAT DAY.

MAC - I AM SORRY THAT YOUR MOTHER IS NOT DOING WELL AND FEELING ILL. HAPPY THAT SHE DID GET THROUGH THE PROCEDURE WELL. NOW I HOPE THAT SHE CAN FEEL BETTER SOON. WHEN I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH IBS, PEPPERMINT IS WHAT I TURN TO. IT IS EFFECTIVE. IT IS SAD THAT YOUR MOTHER NOW BELIEVES THAT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE TRYING TO GET RID OF HER. BUT SHE ISN'T IN HER RIGHT MIND.

DEBBIE - SO SORRY ABOUT YOUR COUSIN'S ILLNESSES. WHAT A NICE THING FOR YOUR FRIEND, LINDA, TO SEND YOU A BIRTHDAY GIFT. I THINK YOU ARE WISE TO COUNTER THE OFFER ON YOUR PROPERTY.

CEREBELLUM - IT IS SO NICE THAT YOU NOW HAVE THE STAIRGLIDE NOW. IT MAKES LIFE EASIER FOR YOU. BUT SORRY THAT YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE NOW WITH THE BUS STOP.

MONICA - CONGRATS ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS.

MARY - IT IS GREAT THAT YOU MAY HAVE A CHILDREN'S BOOK PUBLISHED. TO SEE THAT HAPPEN WOULD BE VERY EXCITING. I HOPE YOUR FRIEND IS RECOVERING FROM HER KNEE SURGERY.

WISPY - HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY YOUR TRIP.

MAC,........ I'M HAPPY TO HEAR THAT YOUR NOT GOING TO WAIT UNTIL WED TO CALL THE DOC............. RIGHT NOW MOM IS IN SUCH BAD SHAPE THAT SHE REALLY DOES NEED TO GET BACK INTO THE HOSPITAL...... THEY CAN START FEEDING HER WITH TUBES THEN GRADUALLY GET HER BACK TO FOOD AND DRINK........ AT HER AGE IT'S TOO DANGEROUS TO NOT GET HER SORTED OUT NOW NOT LATER....... THERE MAY BE NO LATER......... I THINK EVEN IF SHE IS FEELING A BIT BETTER TOMORROW YOU SHOULD STILL BE CALLING THE DOC.......... EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO TELL HIM TO GET HER BACK IN THE HOSPITAL....... JUST DO IT MAC....... DON'T WAIT AROUND ANY LONGER......... THIS IS FOR MOM'S OWN GOOD AND IN TIME I'M SURE SHE WILL UNDERSTAND......... BUT UNTIL THEN DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO SO YOU KNOW MOM IS NOT SUFFERING LIKE THIS DAILY........ SHE MAY NOT CARE ABOUT SUFFERING BUT SHE DOES HAVE FAMILY THAT DOES...... WHICH IS A GOOD THING....

DEBBIE...... THAT IS A TRUE FRIEND SENDING YOU ALL THAT FOOD........ YOU CAN REALLY CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY AND EAT GOOD.... HOPE THINGS WORK OUT WITH YOUR PROPERTY..........

WELL I GOT MY THANKSGIVING MEAL ALL PREPPED FOR TOMORROW.......... I JUST NEED TO THROW THE TURKEY IN AND MAKE THE VEGGIES GRAVY AND DINNER BUNS............ I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT MEAL........ I MIGHT NOT COUNT CALORIES........ WILL SEE HOW I FEEL TOMORROW............. HAVE A LOVELY EVENING EVERYONE.

HI ; )

CONTINUING THE PRAYERS, MAC. REALLY HOPE MUM COMES TO HER SENSES. IT WILL ALWAYS BE A STRUGGLE AS WE ALL RECOGNIZE.

MY COUSIN'S CHEMOTHERAPY IS FOR BOTH LUPUS AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS. HER KIDNEYS ARE SHOT AND HER LIPIDS AND BLOOD PRESSURE ARE SO ELEVATED, SHE IS AT RISK FOR EITHER A STROKE OR HEART ATTACK AT ANY MOMENT. SHE IS A VERY SICK LADY.

I RECEIVED A BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY FRIEND, LINDA, IN PENNSYLVANIA YESTERDAY. IT WAS A BOX OF FROZEN STEAKS, BURGERS AND HOT DOGS PLUS SOME FRUIT TARTS SO I COULD HAVE A GOOD BIRTHDAY MEAL (LUNCH AND DINNER) ABOUT 4 OR 5 TIMES OVER. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I WAS OVERWHELMED BY HER GENEROSITY. IT IS A GREAT TREAT. MY SON TOLD ME HE IS SENDING ME A BAG OF MY FAVORITE COFFEE IF HE IS ABLE TO FIND IT. IT SEEMS THAT A FOOD THEME IS EMERGING ; ) I THINK I PROBABLY WILL STAY HOME THURSDAY AND ENJOY COOKING.

I GOT AN OFFER ON MY PROPERTY IN MISSOURI YESTERDAY - DANGLING A QUICK SALE IN FRONT OF ME FOR A REDUCED PRICE. THEYE ALSO WANT TO KEEP THE TRAILER THAT IS THERE. I HAVE GIVEN FRIENDS UNTIL THANKSGIVING TO GET THE STOVE, REFRIGERATOR AND HEATING/COOLING SYSTEM OUT OF IT IN EXCHANGE FOR THEM TAKING CARE OF THE TRASH AND SCRAPPING OF THE TRAILER. I WILL KEEP MY WORD TO THEM UNTIL THE DEADLINE. THEN I WILL COUNTER THE OFFER AT A MORE REASONABLE PRICE.

I HAVE WORKMEN WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO COME BY AND FINISH THE WORK THEY LEFT UNDONE AND REPAIR WHERE THEY MESSED UP THE SATELLITE DISH INSTALLATION. I HAVE A FEELING THAT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SHOW AND I AM READY TO START FILING COMPLAINTS OR WHATEVER OPTIONS ARE OPEN TO ME. WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET 2-3 INCHES OF RAIN IN THE NEXT 48 HOURS AND I DON'T NEED A LEAKY NEW ROOF. IT IS SO HARD TO GET WORKERS TO DO THE JOB YOU HAVE PAID THEM GOOD MONEY TO DO, ESPECIALLY, IT SEEMS IF YOU ARE AN OLDER WOMAN ON YOUR OWN. I GET SO TIRED OF HAVING TO RIDE HERD ON PEOPLE TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO WHAT THEY PROMISED.

BECAUSE OF THE EXPECTED RAIN, I NEED TO MAKE A QUICK RUN TO THE GROCERY SO I DON'T HAVE TO VENTURE OUT IN THE FLOOD.

HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE DAY!

DEBBIE

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

JUST A QUICK IN AND OUT TO UPDATE YOU ON WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

MUM SEEMS A BIT BRIGHTER TODAY BUT IS STILL REALLY DEHYDRATED. SHE HAS LITERALLY ONLY DRANK LESS THAN A GLASS OF WATER ALL DAY! I TRIED TO GETE HER TO HAVE SOME TOMATO SOUP AT LUNCH TIME BUT SHE HARDLY TOUCHED IT SAYING IT TASTED AWFUL.

I HAVE JUST TAKEN HER A COUPLE OF BOILED EGGS BUT AM NOT 4XPECTING HER TO EVEN EAT BOTH OF THOSE.

SHE IS NOT HELPING HERSELF BY LYING DOWN ALL DAY BUT I JUST TRIED TO SIT HER UP O THAT SHE COULD EAT AND I INADVERTENTLY TOUCHED HER TUMMY. SHE JUST ABOUT LEAPT OUT OF BED SO IT REALLY IS THAT SORE.

MUM WANTED US TO WAIT UNTIL WEDNESDAY UNTIL PHONING THE DOCTOR BECAUSE SHE LIKES THE LADY DOCTOR WE HAVE. SHE HAS BEEN TOLD THAT WE ARE NOT WAITING ANY LONGER AND THAT FIRST THING TOMORROW MORNING I WILL BE PHONING TO GET THE DOCTOR ON DUTY, WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE THE PRINCIPAL DOCTOR ANYWAY, TO COME OUT OT HER AND I HAVE ALSO TOLD HER THAT I WILL BE ASKING HIM TO REFER HER BACK INTO HOSPITAL. WHETHER HE WILL OR NOT I DO NOT KNOW, BUT I AM ONLY TRY MY BEST TO GET HIM TO.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS. SHERRY IS RIGHT IN THAT IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN SOONER RATHER THAN LATER, EXCEPT THE ONLY PERSON WHO DID NOT BELIEVE IT WAS MUM. SHE SIMPLY WILL NOT LEARN AND BOTH TRISH AND I HAVE TRIED TO EXPLAIN THINGS TO HER THAT SHE COULD DO TO HELP HERSELF, AND THAT IS APART FROM EATING AND DRINKING.

SO THAT IS IT. WE NOW AWAIT THE DOCTOR AND HOPEFULLY HE WILL ACCEDE TO OUR REQUESTS AND WE CAN THEN GET MUM SORTED OUT. MUM THINKS WE ARE DELIBERATELY NOW TRYING TO GET RID OF HER. AGAIN, BOTH TRISH AND I HAVE TRIED TO EXPLAIN THAT THIS IS NOT THE CASE AND WHY WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING, BUT WHETHER IT WILL SINK IN IS ANOTHER MATTER.

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A SUPER SUNDAY AND I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.

LOTS OF emoticon emoticon

HI EVERYONE!

MAC- SINCE I HAVE BEEN USING THE STAIRGLIDE I HAVE NOT HAD TO GO UP DOWN STEPS AND I AM THINKING THAT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROBLEM GOING UP THE BUS STEPS. I DO EXERCISES THAT SIMULATE STEPS, BUT I GUESS THAT'S NOT THE SAME. IT ONLY BOTHERS ME, BECAUSE AS I'M SURE YOU REMEMBER ANY TIME THAT YOU NOTICE A LOSS IT IS BOTHERSOME. I TAKE THE MORNING PILLS AND THEN PUT THE EVENING PILLS IN A SHOT GLASS. I DON'T DRINK ANYMORE SO AT LEAST THERE IS STILL A USE FOR IT. IF THERE IS NOTHING IN THE GLASS THEN I KNOW I DIDN'T TAKE THEM FOR THE DAY! I AM PRAYING THAT MUM IS MUCH BETTER AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE HER BACK TO THE HOSPITAL. I KNOW THAT WAS HARD ON ALL OF YOU AND NOT JUST HER!

DEBBIE- HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN ADVANCE! IF YOU ARE HAPPY IN YOUR LITTLE HOUSE, THEN STAYING HOME IS A NICE WAY TO SPEND YOUR BIRTHDAY. WHATEVER YOU ENJOY. MAYBE SOMEONE WILL SUPRISE YOU WITH A VISIT. IS YOUR COUSIN THE ONE WITH CANCER? I ASSUME IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE.

WISPY- BY NOW I'M SURE YOU ARE ON YOUR TRIP. I HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT TIME AND TELL US ALL ABOUT IT WHEN YOU GET BACK! I HOPE WHEN YOU GET HOME THE COMPUTER WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL.

SHERRY- I HAVE HAD A SORE ARM AFTER A FEW SHOTS, BUT NEVER BAD ENOUGH TO TAKE ANYTHING.BEFORE OR AFTER. IT IS A GOOD THING I WENT WITH MY MOTHER. SHE IS HORRIBLE AT DIRECTIONS AND OF COURSE THERE WAS SOME CONSTRUCTION ON THE WAY I TOLD HER TO GO. IF I WASN'T THERE SHE MIGHT STILL BE RIDING AROUND TRYING TO FIND HER WAY.

OMNICAM- CONGRATS ON THE WEIGHT LOSS! I HOPE YOU CONTINUE EVEN THOUGH I AM SURE HAVING A SPONSOR HELPS.

HELLO ; )

MAC, PRAYERS HAVE BEEN SAID FOR YOUR MUM AND THE WHOLE FAMILY AS YOU DEAL WITH THIS CRISIS. I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT SHE DOES TURN AROUND AND DOES NOT HAVE TO BE HOSPITALIZED. I PRAY FOR THE REST OF YOU TO HAVE WISDOM AND STRENGTH IN DEALING WITH WHATEVER PRESENTS ITSELF.

WE ARE HAVING RAIN UPON MORE RAIN. I AM WORKING WITH BOTH THE GENTLEMAN WHO CUTS MY GRASS THROUGH THE SUMMER AND THE YOUNG MAN WHO HELPS ME WITH CHORES I JUST CAN'T QUITE MANAGE ON MY OWN TO GET READY FOR WINTER. I THINK OUR FALL WILL BE QUITE SHORT. I'M JUST TRYING TO GET THINGS TO A SPOT WHERE I WILL HOPEFULLY FEEL LIKE DOING MORE GARDENING AND UPKEEPING NEXT YEAR.

I FINALLY HAVE ALL OF MY POSSESSIONS HERE AT MY HOME IN TENNESSEE. THANK YOU, GOD! I AM HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING THE TRAILER IN MO CLEANED OUT, PEOPLE GETTING ITEMS PROMISED THEM AND THE WHOLE PLACE READY TO GO ON THE MARKET. IF ALL ELSE FAILS, THE REALTOR WHO IS GOING TO SELL THE LAND FOR ME CAN FIND PEOPLE TO DO THINGS. IT WILL JUST COST ME MORE MONEY.

I ASK FOR PRAYERS FOR MY COUSIN WHO IS QUITE ILL. I TREASURE ANY TIME WE ARE ABLE TO GET TOGETHER. THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH OF THAT I AM SURE.

I AM HAVING A BIT OF DIFFICULTY WITH MY BACK. I'M TAKING IT EASY TODAY AND HOPEFULLY I WILL FEEL BETTER IN A SHORT WHILE. LUCI AND I ARE WATCHING COLLEGE FOOTBALL. MY BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK. I WILL HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT I WANT TO DO THAT DAY. I AM QUITE CONTENT NOW IN MY LITTLE HOUSE SO I MAY JUST ENJOY THE DAY HERE. PERHAPS THE SUN COULD PUT IN AN APPEARANCE - LOL.

MY BEST TO EACH OF YOU!!!

; )

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

THIS WILL BE MY ONLY VISIT THIS EVENING AS I AM GONG TO BE TIED UP. I MAY NOT MAKE IT IN TOMORROW EITHER.

BASICALLY MUM S AT A CRITICAL POINT. SHE HAS BARELY EATEN OR DRUNK TODAY AND IT IS GETTING REALLY PAINFUL TO WATCH AS SHE IS, NATURALLY, GETTING WEAKER BY THE DAY. SHE IS TAKING HER MEDS SO THAT IS NOT AN ISSUE. THE PROBLEM IS THAT SHE IS BASICALLY GOING BACK TO WHAT SHE WAS BEFORE SHE WENT INTO HOSPITAL NOT THAT LONG AGO.

SO, AS YOU CAN SEE, IT HAS BEEN ALONG DAY SO FAR AND IT IS GOING TO GET EVEN LONGER AS I HAVE A FEELING I MIGHT BE UP FOR MOST OF THE NIGHT CHECKING ON HER.

SO I WILL WISH ALL OF YOU A WONDERFUL SATURDAY AND ASK THAT YOU PRAY FOR MY MOTHER THAT SHE STARTS TO TURN AROUND AS IF SHE IS NO BETTER BY MONDAY MORNING THEN SHE HAS BEEN TOLD THAT WE WILL BE PHONING THE DOCTOR AND THE LIKELIHOOD IS THAT SHE WILL BE BACK INTO HOSPITAL AGAIN.

WILL HOPEFULLY MANAGE TO POP IN TOMORROW BUT NO PROMISES AT THIS STAGE.

TAKE CARE EVERYONE.

WILLOW, ALL OF OUR FLOWERS HAVE JUST ABOUT DIED OFF NOW, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE STILL ONE OR TWO HANGING AROUND. ALTHOUGH WE STILL HAVE SOME SUNSHINE IT IS USUALLY TYPICAL AUTUMNAL WEATHER AT THE MOMENT AND WE ARE GETTING MORE RAIN THAN ANYTHING. IN A WAY I AM GLAD I DECIDED NOT TO GO CAMPING THIS MONTH, LOL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS RE MUM. HOPEFULLY SHE WILL BE BETTER SOON AS I DO WANT TO GET HER OUT AND ABOUT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. AS FOR WISPY; YES, SHE IS ONLY AWAY FOR ONE DAY AND WE MISS HER ALREADY. NEVER. WHEN SHE GETS BACK WE WILL BE REGALED WITH HER ADVENTURES AND I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO HEAR ING ABOUT THOSE. IT IS SLOW BUT I HAVE NOTICED A TREND COME THE WEEKENDS AND IT SEEMS TO RALLY SLOW DOWN A LOT AND THEN PICK UP A BIT COME MONDAY. HOPEFULLY THIS WEEKEND WILL BE BETTER.

OK THAT IS ME FOR THE DAY. IT IS COMING UP TO 9.45PM SO I AM OFF TO BED WITH A SANDWICH AND A BOOK.

HAVE A SUPER EVENING AND I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

LOTS OF HUGS. (SORRY NO EMOTICONS FOR SOME REASON).

SHERRE......DIVERTICULOSIS IS WHEN POUCHES DEVELOP IN THE LARGE COLON... THESE ARE OFTEN CAUSED BY NOT ENOUGH FIBRE IN THE DIET ALTHOUGH SOME PEOPLE JUST DEVELOP THEM.....MANY PEOPLE HAVE THEM AND DON'T EVEN KNOW IT....THEY ARE DISCOVERED DURING A COLONOSCOPY......WHEN THEY BECOME INFLAMED OR INFECTED IT IS CALLED DIVERTICULITIS....AND TRUST ME YOU WILL KNOW WHEN THAT HAPPENS.....PAIN IN THE LOWER LEFT SIDE OF THE ABDOMEN....II HAVE HAD SEVERAL ATTACKS AND AT MY LAST COLONOSCOPY THE DOCTOR SAID THEY WERE SO SEVERE HE HAS EVEN REFUSED TO DO ANOTHER COLONOSCOPY FOR FEAR HE GOES RIGHT THROUGH ONE OF THE POUCHES....MY SISTER HAD THEM AND SHE HAD TO HAVE A LARGE PIECE OF BOWEL REMOVED......MY DAUGHTER ALSO HAS THEM AND WAS TOLD NEXT TIME IF SHE HAS ANOTHER ATTACK SHE VERY WELL MAY NEED SURGERY TOO. JUST ANOTHER REASON TO EATS LOTS OF FIBRE...... SO MUCH FOR MEDICAL CLASS LESSONS FOR TODAY.

IT HAS BBEEN A VERY NICE DAY......THE SUN IS OUT BUT A NICE BREEZE AS WELL....I THINK THE MORNING GLORIES ARE SOON OVER BUT THE RED GERANIUMS AND WHITE DIANTHUS ARE STILL QUITE NICE AS ARE THE FALL MUMS, 2 SHADES OF PURPLE & MAUVE OF COURSE.

MAC - LOOKS LIKE THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY OF US HERE..........I MISS WISPY......HOPE MUM INPROVES.

GOOD EVENING FOLKS.

A SLOW DAY UP TO NOW I SEE. NEVER MIND. HOPEFULLY MORE OF YOU WILL COME IN LATER ON.

IT HAS BEEN A REALLY LONG DAY. I DID SOME HOME EXERCISES THIS MORNING AS I WAS NOT GOING OT THE GYM. I ALSO LET MUM'S SISTER AND MY BROTHER KNOW SO THAT THEY ARE UP TO DATE WITH MUM'S ILLNESS.

THE GOOD THING IS THAT MUM HAS EATEN SOMETHING TODAY. IT HAS NOT BEEN A LOT, BUT AT LEAST SHE HAS STARTED TO EAT AGAIN BUT IT WILL TAKE A BIT LONGER TO BUILD HER UP TO WHAT SHE WAS. I HAVE ALREADY TOLD HER THAT IF THIS IS NOT ANY BETTER BY MONDAY THEN I WILL BE PHONING THE DOCTOR AGAIN AND RECOMMENDING SHE GOES BACK INTO HOSPITAL TO GET SORTED OUT. I HAVE ALSO TOLD HER THAT THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE AS WELL. SO SHE KNOWS WHERE I STAND AND IT IS UP TO HER TO AT LEAST TRY TO HELP HERSELF. I ALSO WISH SHE WAS DRINKING MORE BUT SHE IS ALMOST REGRESSING. AGAIN SHE HAS BEEN TOLD THAT IF SHE DOESN'T IMPROVE THEN NO MORE PLAYING AROUND. SHE WILL BE GOING BACK INTO HOSPITAL. SHE SAID SHE WILL TRY AND GET UP TOMORROW AS BOTH TRISH AND I HAVE TOLD HER THAT IT IS POSSIBLY THE BEST THING FOR HER. THAT WAY HER TUMMY IS MOVING WHICH WILL HELP HER IN HER QUEST TO GET RID OF THAT WIND. WE WILL JUST HAVE TO SEE HOW IT GOES.

SHERRY, AS YOU SEE, MUM HAS AT LEAST TRIED TO EAT SOMETHING TODAY, PLUS SHE HAS TAKEN ALL OF HER MEDICATION BECAUSE I MADE SURE OF IT. SHE WAS NOT TAKING HER ANTI-NAUSEA MEDS SO I MADE HER TAKE THOSE AS WELL. SHE IS SUPPOSED TO TAKE THEM 30-60 MINUTES PRIOR TO EATING SO I HAVE BEEN GOING UP AND TELLING HER THAT IT SI TIME TO TAKE THEM AS I WAS MAKING HER SOMETHING TO EAT. OK, WHAT SHE HAS EATEN WOULD NOT FEED A CHILD, BUT IT IS A START AND I AM HOPING TO BUILD ON IT TOMORROW. ONE THING I HAVE SAID IS THAT I WILL BE GOING OUT NEXT WEEK. FORTUNATELY, TRISH IS IN ON MONDAY SO THAT WILL BE A GOOD DAY FOR ME TO GET TO THE GYM AND MAYBE ALSO TO SNEAK IN A ROUND OF BINGO IN THE AFTERNOON. AS WELL.

THAT SEEMS TO BE IT FOR NOW. I WILL POP BACK LATER AS USUAL WHEN I HOPE I WILL HAVE MORE OF YOU TO ANSWER.

HAVE A SUPER FRIDAY.

HELLO EVERYONE................ WELL IT'S TURNING OUT TO BE A GORGEOUS DAY......... SUNNY WITH 20C...... I HAVE TO WALK DOWN TO THE BANK AFTER LUNCH SO I'M GLAD IT'S NICE ENOUGH TO NOT HAVE TO BUNDLE UP....

WILLOW............ I JUST PUT OUT MY THANKSGIVING AND HALLOWEEN TOGETHER., MOST OF THAT I HAVE MATCHES EACH HOLIDAY.......... LEAVES AND PUMPKINS OF ALL SIZES ETC... I LIKE HOW WE HAVE OUR THANKSGIVING IN OCT........ I WOULD HATE TO HAVE TO TAKE DOWN THANKSGIVING AND DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS WITH NO BREAK IN BETWEEN...... IF YOU DON'T MIND ME ASKING....... WHAT IS DIVERTICULOSIS?

MAC............ I HOPE MOM IS EATING SOMETHING TODAY........... THIS TUMMY PAIN HAS BEEN GOING ON LONG ENOUGH YOU WOULD THINK.......... THE HOSPITAL GAVE HER SOMETHING THEN THE DOC GAVE HER SOMETHING ELSE....... IF SHE EATS I'M SURE IT WILL HELP TO MOVE THE BLOCKED WIND....... BUT IF SHE DON'T EAT TODAY THEN I THINK IT MIGHT BE TIME TO CONTACT THE DOC AND GET THIS TUMMY PAIN CLEARED UP ONCE AND FOR ALL........ IT'S GOT TO BE SUCH A HASSLE FEELING SICK ALL THE TIME AND NOTHING IS WORKING...... AT MOMS AGE THE DOC'S CAN'T WAIT AROUND AND SEE HOW THIS AND THAT WORKS... BY NOW I WOULD BE PULLING MY HAIR OUT........... IT'S REALLY TOO BAD YOU HAVE TO MISS THE GYM....... I MUST ADD IT'S ONLY MOM THAT HAS BROUGHT MOST OF HER BAD HEALTH ON TO THIS POINT....... SO YOU'D THINK AT THIS TIME SHE WILL DO ANYTHING TO FINALLY FEEL BETTER...... I HAVE USED A DAILY DISPENSER FOR YEARS..... IT JUST MAKES IT'S EASIER TO KNOW THAT ONCE IT'S EMPTY YOU HAVE TAKEN ALL YOUR MED'S FOR THE DAY........

OKAY I NEED TO EAT MY LUNCH AND TAKE OFF TO THE BANK.............. HAVE A SUPER GREAT FRIDAY GANG.

SHERRY, MUM WAS DOING OKAY AND HAD GOT ALL OF HER MEDS WORKED OUT. SHE IS NOT BAD AND IS CONSCIENTIOUS IN TAKING WHAT SHE NEEDS SO UP TO NOW IT HAS NOT BEEN AN ISSUE. NOW I THINK THERE IS JUST TOO MANY FOR HER TO COMPREHEND SO SHE IS GETTING CONFUSED AS THE DOC KEEPS ADDING MORE TO THE LIST, ALTHOUGH SOME ARE JUST TEMPORARY OF COURSE. FOR A LITTLE WHILE I WILL HAVE TO PUT HER PILLS OUT JUST UNTIL SHE GETS OVER THIS WIND AND THEN WE CAN PROBABLY GO BACK TO NORMAL. AS FOR THE DOCTOR; SHE IS REALLY GOOD AND IT IS ONLY BECAUSE SHE THE HOSPITAL HAD NOT UPDATED HER THAT SHE WAS UNAWARE OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING. IT IS SOMETHING I AM GOING TO TAKE UP WITH THE HOSPITAL AS THE DOCTOR NEEDS TO KNOW SINCE SHE IS THE ONE WHO HAS TO DEAL WITH MUM SHOULD ANYTHING HAPPEN. THE FACT IS THAT MUM WAS NOT ALLOWED TO EAT YESTERDAY BECAUSE OF THE PROCEDURE, BUT COULDN'T THE DAY BEFORE BECAUSE EVERYTHING WAS MAKING HER SICK. TODAY SHE HAS, AT ;EAST, HAD SOME FLUIDS. TOMORROW SHE WILL BE GETTING FOOD, I CAN ASSURE YOU. IF SHE DOESN'T EAT IT THEN I WILL HAVE NO COMPUNCTION BUT TO PHONE FOR THE DOCTOR AGAIN AND HAVE HER REFERRED BACK TO THE HOSPITAL WHERE SHE CAN BE PUT ON A DRIP. THE SITUATION IS FLUID RIGHT NOW BUT NOT NEGOTIABLE. IT ALL DEPENDS ON MUM NOW AND IF SHE IS WILLING TO GIVE FOOD A TRY. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE HAD A BUSY DAY OF IT SO FAR AS WELL. HOPE YOU CAN NOW GET SOME REST AND PUT YOUR FEET UP FOR A WHILE.

WILLOW, THE ENDOSCOPY LOOKED AT MUM'S TUMMY AS WELL AND IT IS CLEAR, WHICH IS AT LEAST SOME GOOD NEWS.THE DOCTOR PUT HER STETHOSCOPE TO HER TUMMY AND SAID IMMEDIATELY THAT SHE COULD HEAR IT GURGLING AWAY. HOPEFULLY WHAT SHE HAS GIVEN MUM WILL DO THE TRICK. MUM'S BOWEL MOVEMENTS ARE OKAY AND SHE IS NOT IN ANY PAIN WITH THOSE, SO I SUSPECT THAT HER BOWELS ARE CLEAR AS WELL. SHE COMPLAINED ABOUT HER TUMMY BEFORE AND I REALLY THINK THAT SHERRY IS PROBABLY RIGHT IN THAT BECAUSE OF LACK OF FOOD THERE IS NOTHING TO SHIFT THE WIND. IT IS WHY IT IS IMPERATIVE FOR MUM TO EAT SOMETHING TOMORROW. JUST WISH ME LUCK IN GETTING HER TO.

OK, THAT IS IT FOR ANOTHER ONE. HOPEFULLY TOMORROW WILL BE A BETTER DAY FOR ME. I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO GO TO THE GYM BUT TO DO HOME EXERCISE. IT SI PROBABLY BEST I STAY HOME WITH MUM TOMORROW AND SEE TO HER. I WILL GO BACK TO THE GYM NEXT WEEK A RESUME MY WORKOUTS, BUT MUM IS MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW. I CANNOT BANK ON TRISH BECAUSE SHE IS NOT ALWAYS ABLE TO COPE WITH HER OWN ISSUES. IF MUM IS OK I MIGHT SLIP OUT DOWN THE TOWN AFTER LUNCH. WE WILL SEE.

ANYWAY, I WISH ALL OF YOU A SMASHING EVENING AND HOPE YOU CAN RELAX FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

SEE YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

SHERRE....CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE FINISHED PUMPKINS...I BROUGHT MY DECORATIONS UP FROM THE STOREROOM TODAY...MUST GET THE THANKSGIVING ONES OUT.....THEN NEXT WEEK I WILL TAKE THEM DOWN AND PUT THE HALLOWEEN ONES OUT.

MARY...GOOD LUCK WITH THE BOOK...WISH WE COULD READ IT.

MAC....GOOD IDEA TO PUT MUM'S PILLS IN A DAILY DISPENSER. I KEEP MINE IN ONE AND SO DOES DH....I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR THAT MUM IS IN SUCH PAIN...I HOPE IT IS ONLY WIND AND NOT A BLOCKED BOWEL....I AM SURPRISED THEY DID NOT DO A CT SCAN OR AT LEAST AN ULTRASOUND ON THE AREA......I HAVE DIVERTICULOSIS AND WHEN THAT ACTS UP AND GETS INFECTED IT CAN BE VERY, VERY PAINFUL.....THEY HAVE WARNED ME THAT IF I HAVE A LOT OF PAIN WITH IT, I SHOULD GET TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM BECAUSE THE BOWEL COULD BURST AND CREATE A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION....I DON'T MEAN TO ALARM YOU BUT JUST TO MAKE YOU AWARE, AS I AM SURE YOU ALREADY ARE, THAT TUMMY ACHES CAN SOMETIMES BE VERY SERIOUS....I HOPE SHE FEELS BETTER SOON.

HI EVERYONE............ I'M BUSY TRYING TO FINISHED BOTH PUMPKINS............. PLUS I HAD TO BAKE SOME MUFFINS FOR DOUG'S LUNCHES....... THEN I PREPPED FOR SUPPER........... SO THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE SAT DOWN.....

WISPY.............. DASHING THROUGH AGAIN......... YOUR ONE BUSY BEE......... GETTING ALL THE LAST MINUTE DETAILS DONE AND GOING OVER YOUR LIST BY NOW 10 TIMES.......... LOL. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE 10 DAYS TO JUST DO AS YOU PLEASE........... WE WILL MISS YOU......

MARY......... YOUR ANOTHER BUSY BEE........... WITH YOUR THERAPY AND SCHOOL...... NOW YOUR ADDING IN WRITING........ DIDN'T KNOW YOU ALREADY WROTE A CHILDREN BOOK........ BEST OF LUCK GETTING IT PUBLISHED..

MAC........... AFTER READING YOUR POST YESTERDAY I'M NOT SURPRISED MOM WAS STILL HAVING TUMMY PAINS........ GOOD THING TO CALL THE DOC... BUT I HAVE TO WONDER WHY HE WOULDN'T SUGGEST SHE GET INTO THE HOSPITAL UNTIL IT'S STRAIGHTENED OUT............ 48 HOURS NOT EATING ANYTHING......... IT'S NO WONDER SHE HAS TRAPPED WIND....... THERE IS NOTHING IN THERE TO MOVE IT.... IT'S STARTING TO SOUND LIKE SHE MAY NEED A FEEDING TUBE........ I THOUGHT YOU WERE ALREADY SETTING MOM'S MEDS OUT........ BUT GOOD IDEA..... IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY SHE WASN'T TAKING HER SLEEPING MED'S...... AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE SHE'S NOT TAKING...... GOOD FOR YOU GETTING A SEASON FISHING TICKET......... I KNOW YOU LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR CAMPING TRIPS AND YOU NEED THEM.......... I AGREE THAT MARY COULD ALSO USE SOME EXTRA TIME OFF..... WE'RE NOT FAR FROM CHRISTMAS SO I HOPE THINGS GO BETTER WITH MOM AND YOU CAN ALL HAVE A NICE CELEBRATION.......

OKAY I NEED TO GET BACK TO THESE PUMPKINS.......... HAVE A GREAT DAY GANG.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

NOT A PARTICULARLY PLEASANT DAY TODAY I'M AFRAID. WE HAD TO GET THE DOCTOR OUT TO MUM AS SHE WAS IN AGONY WITH HER TUMMY. THE HOSPITAL WAS CORRECT IN THEIR DIAGNOSIS AND IT TURNS OUT THAT MUM DOES HAVE TRAPPED WIND. THE DOCTOR HAS TOLD EHR TO DRINK SOME PEPPERMINT TEA AND HAS ALSO PRESCRIBED SOMETHING THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE GIVEN TO CHILDREN, BUT WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE EFFECTIVE IN OLDER PEOPLE AS WELL. NEEDLESS TO SAY SHE HAS BEEN IN HER BED ALL DAY AS SHE IS STILL FEELING NAUSEOUS. PART OF THE PROBLEM HAS ALSO BEEN THAT I THINK SHE IS CONFUSED. SHE WAS TOLD TO TRY SOME LIVER SALTS OR SIMILAR TO TRY AND GET RID OF THE WIND BUT THOUGHT IT WAS ALSO TO DO WITH HER BEING SICK, SO CONSEQUENTLY SHE DID NOT TAKE HER ANTI-NAUSEA MEDICATION. UP TO NOW THERE HAS NOT BEEN A PROBLEM AND MUM HAS BEEN TAKING HER MEDS OK, BUT I THINK IT AHS GOT TO THE STAGE WHERE THERE ARE SO MANY AND THEY HAVE TO BE TAKEN AT DIFFERENT TIMES, THAT IT IS GETTING TOO MUCH FOR HER. IT MAY BE THAT I WILL HAVE TO PUT HER MEDS OUT EACH DAY FOR HER IN ONE OF THOSE MEDICATION HOLDERS THAT YOU CAN GET. THE OTHER PROBLEM IS THAT SHE HAS NOW NOT EATEN FOR 48 HOURS. COME WHAT MAY SHE IS GOING TO HAVE TO EAT TOMORROW AND I HAVE A FEELING THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE A BIG PROBLEM. NATURALLY WE WILL GIVE HER SOMETHING LIGHT SUCH AS BOILED, SCRAMBLED OR POACHED EGGS, BUT SHE NEEDS TO EAT BECAUSE HER DRINKING HAS ALSO NOT BEEN GOOD OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS EITHER, AND IF SHE CONTINUES IN THIS VEIN THEN SHE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO LAND BACK IN HOSPITAL. I WAS GOING TO THE GYM TOMORROW BUT I DO NOT SEE HOW I CAN NOW SO MAY HAVE TO CONTENT MYSELF WITH SOME HOME EXERCISES AGAIN. I WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE IF TRISH IS ABLE TO LOOK AFTER MUM BEFORE MAKING A DECISION. THE THING IS THAT ALL I WOULD LIKE IS TO GET MUM WELL ENOUGH TO ENJOY CHRISTMAS. FOR US IT IS NOT SO SPECIAL ANY MORE, EXCEPT YOU KNOW I BELIEVE N THE MEANING OF IT, PLUS I PREFER TO GIVE AND ANYTHING I GET IS A BONUS. MUM HAS ALMOST GONE BACK TO CHILDHOOD THOUGH. OVER THE PAST FEW CHRISTMASES SHE HAS REALLY SPARKLED AND HAS ENJOYED HERSELF IMMENSELY. I KNOW I HAVE TOLD YOU ABOUT HER NOT EATING AT RESTAURANTS, BUT THERE IS ONE THAT SHE DOES LIKE AND DOES EAT AT, AND THEY ARE DONG A PRE-CHRISTMAS DINNER, (TURKEY WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS), AND ARE PRODUCING A KIDDIES SIZE CHRISTMAS DINNER WHICH IS BASICALLY THE SAME AS THE ADULT ONE BUT JUST AL OT LESS ON THE PLATE, AND I THINK MUM WOULD DEFINITELY ENJOY THAT. IT WOULD ALSO GET HER OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS TO BOOT AND I THINK THAT IS ESSENTIAL. WE WILL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

SO IT HAS BEEN QUITE A LONG DAY AND I WILL BE GLAD WHEN IT IS OVER.

SHERRY, AS YOU SEE, THE DOCTOR BIT DID NOT EVEN LAST A DAY. NOW, THE SLIGHTEST THING WRONG WITH MUM AND WE HAVE TO LET THE DOCTOR KNOW ABOUT IT. THAT IS HER INSTRUCTIONS TO US. WE UPDATED HER ON WHAT HAS HAPPENED AS SHE HAS NOT GOT ANYTHING FROM THE HOSPITAL FOR HER RECORDS, AND WE HAVE ALSO LET HER KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, I.E. MORE TREATMENT IN 3 MONTHS TIME. IN THE INTERIM THOUGH SHE DOES WNAT TO MONITOR MUM CLOSELY. DON'T KNOW HOW I WILL TELL MUM THAT AS SHE IS NOT ONE FOR WANTING ME TO PHONE, BUT SHE NOW HAS NO CHOICE INT HE MATTER, (WHICH IS A GOOD THING AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED AS IT HAS TAKEN THE ONUS OFF ME). YES I AM FORTUNATE. CHRISTMAS STUFF ALREADY BUT AS MARY SAID, SHE WOULD SOONER GET THINGS I WANTED RATHER THAN STUFF WHICH WOULD END UP CLUTTERING THE PLACE UP. AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, MY PLANS, FLUID THOUGH THEY HAVE TO BE, DO INCLUDE FOUR WEEK LONG CAMPS NEXT YEAR AND I MEAN TO STICK BY THIS AS IT WILL ENABLE ME TO RECHARGE. HAVING SAID THAT I AM ALSO TRYING TO PERSUADE MARY TO TAKE A LONGER BREAK NEXT YEAR AS SHE REALLY COULD DO WITH IT. I AM TRYING TO SAVE A LITTLE HERE AND THERE SO THAT I CAN HELP HER WITH THIS. SHE HELPS ME WITH BUYING MY FOOD AND STUFF WHEN I GO AWAY SO IT IS ONLY FAIR I TRY AND DO THE SAME FOR HER. NOT JUST THAT BUT I AM GOING TO BE BUYING A SEASON TICKET TO FISH NEXT YEAR, AND IF I DO NOT SUE IT THEN I LOSE IT. I AM NOT GOING TO THROW MONEY AWAY SO IT WILL BE USED. I WILL GO BACK TO THAT PLACE AGAIN AS IT IS SO CALMING AND OUT OF THE WAY THAT YOU DON'T SEE MANY PEOPLE AT ALL, ALTHOUGH THE RANGERS DO COME DOWN A COUPLE OF TIMES INT HE EVENING AS THEY AR CLOSING THE GROUNDS UP JUST TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS OK. I ALSO HAVE THEIR PHONE NUMBER AS WELL SO I M SAFE THERE WHILST AT THE SAME TIME BEING ISOLATED SO CAN CHILL OUT AND RELAX. IT ALSO ENABLES ME TO GET SOME EXERCISE AS THERE IS THAT LONG HILL WHICH I SHOWED YOU ON THE BLOG. SO JUST TO DROP THE HINT THAT I WANT A SET OF POTS THAT I CAN PUT ASIDE PURELY TO TAKE WITH ME AND I BASICALLY HAVE THE LOT. IT TAKES A BIT OF TIME TO AMASS EVERYTHING SO THAT OYU ARE COMFORTABLE AND DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY, BUT I AM GETTING THERE QUICKLY AND IT WILL ONLY BE SMALL THINGS AFTER THIS. I AM BLESSED IN THAT I HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE FAMILY FOR WHAT I AM DOING. WITHOUT THEM I WOULD BE TOTALLY LOST AND COULD NOT DO HALF OF WHAT I DO.

WISPY, CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT OYU WILL BE BUSY. ENJOY YOUR TRIP AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING ALL ABOUT IT WHEN YOU GET BACK.

MONICA, WHAT A PITY THAT YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SPONSOR. WHY IS THAT? YOU ARE DOING SO WELL AND REALLY emoticon ON THAT WEIGHT LOSS. 41LBS IS A GREAT LOSS SO YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELF. MIND YOU, TENNIS ELBOW WILL NOT HELP. THAT IS SO PAINFUL AND I FEEL FOR YOU. HOPEFULLY THE DOCTOR CAN GIVE YOUR SOMETHING TO EASE THE PAIN.

OK FOLKS, THAT IS IT FOR NOW. I WISH ALL OF YOU A LOVELY DAY AND WILL SEE YOU IN A FEW HOURS TIME.

HELLO FRIENDS!
IT IS ALREADY THURSDAY - THIS WEEK IS GOING BY QUICK! I AM DOING PHYSICAL THERAPY 3X PER WEEK AND SPEECH THERAPY ONCE A WEEK. YESTERDAY WAS MY LONGER DAY AT WORK AND I AM TRYING TO SHAPE UP A MANUSCRIPT TO TRY MY LUCK AT GETTING A REAL PRINT PUBLISHER FOR A CHILDREN'S BOOK THAT I HAVE WRITTEN. I THINK THE STORY IS GOOD ENOUGH TO BE PUBLISHED AS A PICTURE BOOK - BUT NOW I HAVE TO CONVINCE A PUBLISHER TO TAKE A CHANCE ON A FIRST TIME AUTHOR - WHICH MANY PUBLISHERS WON'T EVEN CONSIDER. I AM RESEARCHING PUBLISHERS TO FIND ONE THAT WILL ACCEPT A SUBMISSION AND WILL CONSIDER THE TYPE OF STORY THAT I WROTE. NOT EASY... SO I AM VERY BUSY RIGHT NOW.

ON TOP OF THAT MY BEST FRIEND WENT IN FOR AN MRI ON MONDAY AND WENT IN FOR KNEE SURGERY ON WEDNESDAY. WE WERE NOT EXPECTING HER TO NEED SURGERY UNTIL LATER OR AFTER CHRISTMAS SO I HAVE BEEN ON THE TELEPHONE TO CHECK ON HER SEVERAL TIMES. SHE LIVES TOO FAR FOR ME TO GO SEE HER UNTIL THE WEEKEND - BUT I WILL GO SEE HER ON SATURDAY.

HOPE EVERYONE IS DOING WELL!

I have seen the doctor today due to an old injury and it looks like I may have Tennis elbow. I am losing my sponsor within a month. Tomorrow I will be on my 90 day. Since I am losing my sponsor I may or may not be on the same food plan. So far I lost 23 of the max weight and lost about 18 of the weight since July 5.

HI EVERYONE................ I WENT TO SEE MY NEW DIETICAIN TODAY............ IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS I HAVE GAINED 5 POUNDS.............. I WAS HORRIFIED......... I GUESS I SLACKED OFF THIS LAST LITTLE WHILE......... BUT NOW I'M BACK ON TRACK AS OF TODAY.......... I KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO GET THE WEIGHT OFF SO IT'S JUST PUTTING MY HEAD ON AND DOING IT...

CEREBELLUM............. I KNOW A FEW PEOPLE THAT GOT SICK AFTER THEY GOT THE FLU SHOT....... I ALWAYS TAKE A FEW ADVIL BEFORE I GO........ I THINK IT'S SO NEAT YOU AND MOM ARE GOING FOR A LITTLE RIDE....... YOU HARDLY GET OUT SO I HOPE YOU TOTALLY ENJOY IT........ ALONG WITH YOUR LUNCH...... I THINK IF YOUR NOT DOING STAIRS MUCH THEN THE MUSCLES CAN GET SOFT AND IT WILL BE HARDER......... JUST DO SOME STEP UPS EVERY DAY AND IT WILL BUILD THE MUSCLE BACK UP...

WISPY........ DASHING THROUGH........ GOOD LUCK FIXING YOUR LAPTOP....... I GUESS YOU WANT TO TAKE THAT WITH YOU ON THE TRIP SO I HOPE YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT....... IT'S A GOOD THING YOU HAVE THE OTHER ONE.....

KATE......... GOOD FOR YOU TAKING KARATE........ IT TAKES TIME TO BUILD MUSCLES BUT IF YOU FIND A GOOD INSTRUCTOR THAT IS WILLING TO PUT THE TIME IN AND HELP YOU ALONG THEN IT WON'T BE LONG AND YOU WILL BE STRONGER..

MAC............ GOOD NEWS ABOUT MOM'S TUMOR....... I HOPE SHE IS NOT SO WORRIED ANYMORE......... BUT I AGREE IF SHE IS SICK FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS YOU BETTER GET HER IN TO SEE THE GP......... IT COULD BE SOMETHING ELSE ALL TOGETHER....... SO MAKE SURE SHE IS NOT TELLING SHE'S OK WHEN SHE'S NOT....... AS MUCH AS SHE DON'T WANT TO SEE THE DOC I'M SURE SHE WILL TRY ANYTHING TO NOT HAVE TO GO...... GREAT WORK WITH THE CHURCH. FINALLY GETTING THE HALL ROOF DONE..... AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS ARE COMING TOGETHER NICELY. YOU ARE SO SPOILED......... ALREADY GOT YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFTS AND I'M NOT SURPRISED IT'S STUFF FOR CAMPING......... SO YOU BETTER GET OUT THERE THIS SPRING AND START USING THEM.... THE WATER PROOF WALKING SHOES SOUND PERFECT FOR CAMPING....... WITH ALL THE RAIN YOU GUYS GET OUT THERE.......... I HEAR YOU ON NOT WANTING TO USE THE KITCHEN POTS AND PANS......... IT'S NICE TO HAVE YOUR OWN SPECIAL SET....... WE DON'T GET KIDS FOR HALLOWEEN EITHER......... THE SCHOOLS HAVE ALL KINDS OF PARTIES FOR THE KIDS TO GO TO......... SOME PARENTS DRIVE THEIR KIDS AROUND AND WAIT IN THE CAR WHILE THEY DO THE BLOCK....... CRAZY HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED SO MUCH THROUGH THE YEARS......

WELL IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GET OFF THE COMPUTER........ I GOT HOME LATE AND THEN HAD TO START MY CHILI........ SO NOW I'M GOING TO PORTION AND FREEZE SOME................. HAVE A LOVELY EVENING GANG.

IT'S 2017

KATE, THANK YOU. I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED MY SHOPPING TRIP WITH MARY AND TRISH. ALSO THANK YOU FOR THE BEST WISHES FOR MUM. WE HAVE LEFT EHR TODAY AS I DO NOT THINK IT WISE TO KEEP GOING UP TO CHECK ON HER AS SHE WAS SO DROWSY ANYWAY FROM THE PROCEDURE. I HAVE BOUGHT HER WHAT I HOPE WILL BE SOMETHING SHE WILL EAT FOR TOMORROW. IT IS COVERED IN PASTRY WHICH I KNOW SHE WILL NOT EAT, BUT THE FILLING IS MORE IMPORTANT AS IT CONTAINS LOTS OF PROTEIN AND IRON BECAUSE THERE ARE KIDNEYS INVOLVED, (A STEAK AND KIDNEY PIE BASICALLY). WITH A SLICE OF BREAD AND BUTTER IT SHOULD DO THE TRICK AND WILL PUT SOMETHING SOLID BACK NTO EHR TUMMY WITHOUT BEING TOO DIFFICULT TO EAT.

OK FOLKS, I AM GOING TO CALL IT AN EARLY NIGHT AGAIN. I AM ENGROSSED IN MY BOOK AND, SINCE IT IS A BORROWED ONE, I NEED TO TRY AND FINISH IT SO THAT I CAN RETURN IT. I HAVE SEVERAL BOOKS THAT I NEED TO GET GOING ON BUT I FIND THAT I TRY TO READ FOR A BIT ION BED AND THEN AFTER A CHAPTER OR SO I START TO YAWN AND MY EYES STEADILY START TO CLOSE AND THAT IS IT. I JUST HAVE TO PUT IT DOWN. THUS IT CAN TAKE ME AGES TO GET A BOOK FINISHED.

ANYWAY, I HOPE OYU ALL HAVE A FABULOUS EVENING AND I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS..

Wispy: Mac is right, you may have trouble getting xp updated. Microsoft wants everyone it. Best of luck.

GOD EVENING FRIENDS.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE TUMOUR IN MUM'S GULLET HAS NOT GROWN AND THE SURGEON WAS ABLE TO LASER OUT A BIT MORE OF IT TODAY. THE BAD NEWS IS THAT MUM IS STILL BEING SICK AND HAS TUMMY PAINS. THE NURSE THINK IT MAY BE DUE TO WIND SO HAS RECOMMENDED MUM TAKE SOME STUFF TO TRY AND BREAK IT. IF THAT DOESN'T WORK THEN WE HAVE TO APPROACH OUR GP. THIS TIME MUM CANNOT SAY NO AS IT IS INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE HOSPITAL. SHE IS TO DRINK SOME TODAY BUT ONLY COLD LIQUIDS AND HAS NOT TO EAT UNTIL TOMORROW. THIS MEANS TWO DAYS WITHOUT FOOD SO SHE IS DEFINITELY GOING TO HAVE TO EAT SOMETHING TOMORROW FOR LUNCH SINCE SHE REFUSES TO EAT BREAKFAST. CURRENTLY SHE IS FAST ASLEEP, WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED BECAUSE OF THE STUFF THEY GAVE HER AS AN ANAESTHETIC. IT WAS NOT A GENERAL BUT JUST PUT MUM UNDER SO THAT SHE DID NOT FEEL ANYTHING. AGAIN, THE DROWSINESS WAS FORECAST BY THE HOSPITAL.

THIS AFTERNOON WE WENT SHOPPING AND I GOT TO CHOOSE MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT. YES, I KNOW IT IS EARLY BUT ALREADY I HAVE HAD TWO FROM MARY. THE REASON IS THAT ONE, A CAMP COOKER TO REPLACE ONE THAT GOT BROKEN, IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, SO TI WAS A MATTER OF SEE ONE AND BUY IT. THE PRESENT I GOT TODAY WAS A PAIR OF WATERPROOF WALKING SHOES. MARY WANTED ME WITH HER SO THAT I COULD TRY THEM ON AS IF SHE HAD BOUGHT THEM WITHOUT THEN SHE MAY WELL HAVE HAD TO CHANGE THEM. JUST AS WELL I DID GO AS I LIKED THE LOOK OF SOME BOOTS, BUT WHEN I TRIED THEM ON THEY WERE TOO NARROW AT TEH TOES. THE SHOES ARE A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE. I WANTED THESE AFTER ONE OF MY CAMPS LAST YEAR WHEN I HAD TO PUT THE TENT UP IN THE RAIN, AND MY FEET GOT ABSOLUTELY DRENCHED TO THE EXTENT I HAD TO CHANGE BOTH SHOES AND SOCKS. IT TOOK AGES FOR THEM TO DRY OUT AS WELL BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER, SO I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THIS DID NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. SADLY MY LAST PAIR WERE WORN OUT SO I HAD TO GET RID OF THEM. A PITY AS THEY HAD LASTED ME FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I AM HOPING THESE WILL DO THE SAME. I ALREADY HAVE WET WEATHER GEAR FOR MY TOP SO I AM NOW SORTED. I AM ALSO IN THE THROES OF GETTING POTS AND PANS SO THAT I DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE THE GOOD ONES FROM THE KITCHEN. I DO HAVE TWO SE4TS FOR THE KITCHEN BUT I WOULD PREFER TO HAVE A SET PURELY FOR CAMPING. IT JUST MAKES SENSE. ALL MY OTHER STUFF, SUCH AS KNIVES AND CUTLERY AND PLATES ETC. ARE STRICTLY FOR THE CAMPS AND ARE KEPT WITH MY CAMPING EQUIPMENT SO COME THE FIRST CAMP I DO HOPE TO REALLY HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED.

SHERRY, REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THOSE PUMPKINS. I NOTE THAT THE HALLOWE'EN STUFF IS ALLA ROUND IN THE SHOPS NOW BUT IN THE VILLAGE IT IS NOT CELEBRATED SADLY. THER USED TO BE A FEW KIDS WHO WOULD CELEBRATE TRICK OR TREAT BUT NOT ANY MORE. I HTIINK IT IS SAD BUT BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENS INT HE TOWNS WHERE BULLIES HAVE LAIN IN WAIT TO ROB THE YOUNGSTERS THEN PARENTS ARE LOATHE TO LET THE KIDS OUT ANY MORE, AND THEY CERTAINLY ARE NOT WISHING TO TAG ALONG EITHER AFTER A HARD DAYS WORK. ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS TO RELAX. SOME PARENTS DO GO WITH THEIR CHILDREN AND THERE ARE ALSO COSTUME PARTIES AND THINGS FOR THE CHILDREN TO GO TO, BUT IN OUR VILLAGE IT IS JUST ANOTHER NORMAL EVENING. THE CHURCH IS COMING ALONG AND WE HAVE ROOFERS REDOING THE HALL ROOF SO THAT IT WILL LAST US ANOTHER YEAR. AFTER THAT WE THINK IT MAY BE PULLED DOWN BUT UNTIL THEN WE HAVE TO SUE IT. I WANT TO KEEP IT AS WE HAVE LITTLE STORAGE SPACE AND, ONCE THE CHURCH IS DONE, IT WOULD MAKE AN IDEAL ROOM FOR JUST SUCH A PURPOSE. NO FINAL DECISION HAS BEEN MADE ON IT AND WE WILL NOT DO SO UNTIL THE WORK IN THE CHURCH HAS BEEN COMPLETED. WE ACTUALLY GOT SOME GOOD NEWS ON THAT FRONT YESTERDAY IN THAT ONE OF THE GRANTS WE APPLIED FOR HAS COME THROUGH, AND UNDER THE RULES, THIS HAS TO BE MATCHED BY OUR BUILDINGS AND FINANCE DEPARTMENT SO IT LOOKS AS IF WE NOW HAVE ALL THE MONEY IN PLACE FOR THE JOB TO GO AHEAD. OTHER BITS AND PIECES ARE ALSO GETTING DONE, SUCH AS I HAVE BEEN TOLD TOG O AHEAD AND GET AN OUTSIDE WALL REBUILT SUBJECT TO QUOTES, AND THAT IS PART OF MY PROJECT, SO I AM A HAPPY BUNNY OVER THAT. I ALSO HAVE FINGERS IN OTHER PIES AS WELL TO TRY AND RAISE SOME MONEY, BUT WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS ON THAT SCORE. SO FAR I HAVE SPENT VERY LITTLE FROM CHURCH FUNSD AND YET SOMEHOW HAVE MANAGED TO GET MOST OF THE JOB COMPLETED. NOW IS THE TIME WHEN THE CHURCH WILL HAVE TO FORK OUT, ALTHOUGH NOT A GREAT DEAL AS IT HAPPENS, BUT THE LITTLE I NEED WILL ALLOW ME TO GET PHASE ONE COMPLETE IN ENTIRETY. THE TREASURER DOES NOT KNOW IT YET BUT SHE WILL GIVE ME WHAT I ASK FOR. AS FOR MUM; WELL I SAID WHAT WE WERE TOLD TODAY, AD MUM AHS ALSO BEEN ADVISED THAT SHE HAS NOT GOT A CHOICE. IF SHE IS STILL FEELING ILL AND IS STILL SUFFERING FROM STOMACH PAINS THEN THE DOCTOR WILL BE CALLED IN AND SHE WILL JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT IT. SHE HAS NOT SAID ANYTHING YET BUT I WILL TELL HER AGAIN WHEN SHE IS MORE RECEPTIVE AND I KNOW FULL WELL WHAT SHE WILL SAY, BUT IN THIS IT IS NOT DOWN TO HER ANY MORE. IT IS EITHER THE GP OR SHE WILL END UP BACK IN HOSPITAL. SHE WAS ACTUALLY PESSIMISTIC TODAY AND EVEN HAD AN OVERNIGHT BAG PACKED READY JUST IN CASE. THAT IS HOW SHE IS THINKING RIGHT NOW. I ALSO HAD TO CHANGE HER BED BECAUSE SHE WAS REALLY ILL DURING THE NIGHT, AND I SUSPECT IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS OVER-THINKING ABOUT TODAY INSTEAD OF JUST LETTING IT HAPPEN. IN OTHER WORDS I RECKON IT WAS PSYCHOSOMATIC TO A LARGE EXTENT. WE WILL SEE.

CEREBELLUM, THE FACT THAT OYU ARE UNABLE TO CLIMB STEPS IS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR STAIR LIFT. WE HAVE ONE IN OUR HOUSE BUT MUM CAN STILL MANAGE A FEW STEPS, ALBEIT WITH A STRUGGLE. I THINK THE REASON FOR YOUR LACK OF MOVEMENT IN THAT DIRECTION IS THE LACK OF PRACTICE IN ACTUALLY WALKING. THE MUSCLES HAVE LOST SO MUCH OF THEIR POWER THAT THEY ARE UNABLE TO RESPOND ANY MORE TO CERTAIN COMMANDS. I CAN REMEMBER BACK TO WHEN I HAD TO USE THE WHEELCHAIR ALL OF THE TIME AND IT TOOK ME NEARLY THREE AND A HALF YEARS BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO WALK AROUND WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A WALKER. I CAN NOW POTTER AROUND THE HOUSE EVEN WITHOUT A STICK THESE DAYS, BUT IT WAS REALLY HARD WORK BECAUSE MY MUSCLES HAD CONTRACTED AND HAD TO BE BUILT UP AGAIN, AND THAT CAN TAKE A LONG LONG TIME. I WOULD NOT OVERLY WORRY ABOUT IT. AS LONG AS YOU CARE KEEPING SOME MOVEMENT IN YOUR LEGS THEN THAT'S THE MAIN THING. WOULD SUGGEST THAT IT WOULD TAKE YOU SEVERAL YEARS TO BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO WALKING UP A STAIRCASE AND TO BE HONES, IS IT REALLY WORTH IT FOR YOU? THIS IS A QUESTION YOU ALONE HAVE THE ANSWER TO. AS FOR GETTING AROUND, I HEAR YOU. SEVERAL TIMES I HAVE HAD TO GET MYSELF, WITH THE AID OF THE DRIVER, ONTO A BUS WHILST IN MY CHAIR. THE BUSES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FITTED WITH RAMPS AND MOST OF THEM ARE, BUT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO COMPLAIN AGAIN AS WE SEEM TO GET THE OLDER BUSES WHICH ARE EITHER NOT FITTED WITH A RAMP OR THE RAMP IS NOT WORKING. IT IS A BIND AND SHOULD NOT BE THE CASE WITH TODAY'S MODERN TRANSPORT. SO AS FOR GETTING OUT AND ABOUT, I REALLY DO FEEL FOR YOU. IT IS NO FUN WHEN ALL YOU HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO IS DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENTS TO GET YOURSELF OUT OF THE HOUSE. THUS, EVEN THOUGH ANOTHER VISIT TO A DOCTOR, I DO HOPE YOU MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TRIP WITH YOUR MOTHER AND THAT YOU ENJOY THE LUNCH MEAL AS WELL. GO FOR IT AND DO NOT THINK CALORIES. THIS IS SUCH A RARE TREAT FOR YOU THAT YOU DESERVE TO SIMPLY LE4T IT HAPPEN AND HAVE A BIT F WHAT YOU FANCY.

KATE, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE HERE FOR. OU HAVE OVERCOME A LOT OF PAIN AND CONTINUE TO DO SO AND THIS GIVES HOPE TO US ALL.

WISPY, YOU WILL BE LUCKY IF YOU CAN GET XP BACK NOW. THINGS HAVE MOVED ON TWICE SINCE XP AND ALSO THAT OPERATING SYSTEM IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. YOU WILL PROBABLY END UP EITHER WITH WINDOWS VISTA, (IF YOU ARE LUCKY), OR MORE LIKELY WINDOWS 7, WHICH IS NOT SO BAD ONCE YOU GET USED TO IT. WHAT ANTI-VIRUS WERE YOU USING? AN ANTI-VIRUS SHOULD HAVE NO EFFECT ON AN OPERATING SYSTEM. ONLY A VIRUS CAN WIPE THAT OUT UNLESS YOU PRESSED A WRONG BUTTON OR SOMETHING. CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME THINK HOW THIS COULD HAPPEN.

OK FOLKS, THAT'S IT FOR NOW. HAVE A GLORIOUS DAY. WILL SEE YOU IN A LITTLE WHILE.

Hi all, well Im dashing today. Got to try and get my laptop fixed before I leave.
The whole xp programme got deleted by my anti virus programme, and now I cant download the old antivirus because it says I have a new version on my computer. But the new version wont work so I cant even open anything to delete it all and start from scratch.

All will be well.

Omni Great going on the karate - you are very good at self discipline and healing.

Love to all Wispy

Mac: thank you for the encouragement.

Sherry: I was discussing forms of karate. lol. Didon't think to explain.

Wispy: My karate is not good. I get around well sometimes and not so much other times. I can use the cane in my forms as needed and can't really spar and such. I have to keep trying though to push my limits. Maybe in 5 years I will be good. We shall see. I hope that I find a patient instructor.

Corgi: The walk sounds lovely!

Chris: I'm sorry for the pain. People keep warning me rain will get me, but I can't tell yet. Seems like exercise is what makes me hurt.

HI EVERYONE!

WISPY- JAWANNA DROPPED HER EXTRA CAR INSURANCE THAT SHE HAD TO HAVE TO GET REIMBURSED FOR TAKING ME PLACES. SHE ISN'T SUPPOSED TO TAKE ME TO DOCTOR'S ANYWAY, BUT SHE DID. SHE WAS GOING TO TAKE ME TO THE DOCTORS THE DAY THAT WE HAD THE BIG FIGHT SO I GUESS SHE IS NOT ANXIOUS TO DO IT AGAIN. THAT IS OKAY WITH ME THOUGH, I DON' T THINK I AM READY TO RELY ON HER SINCE OUR WORDS SHE HAS BEEN BEING MUCH MORE DEPENDABLE, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG THAT WILL LAST. I'M NOT SURE IF IT WAS YOU OR SHERRY THAT SAID SOMETHING ABOUT NURSING HOMES. I CAN SAY FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT SOME OF THEM ARE HORRIBLE! THE ONE I WAS AT FOR REHAB GOT A 1 OUT OF 5 RATING. WHICH ISN'T GOOD, SO THERE MUST BE SOME THAT ARE MUCH BETTER OUT THERE! I WAS GONE FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND THEN I USUALLY JUST SHOP ONCE A MONTH, SO I WAS OUT OF JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING!

MAC- IT SEEMS THAT CHRISTMAS IN STORES IS GETTING EARLIER AND EARLIER EVERY YEAR! SOMETIMES IT SEEMS THAT THE ONLY TIMES I GET OUT ARE TO GO TO DOCTOR'S. TOMORROW MY MOTHER AND I ARE GOING FOR A LITTLE RIDE AND THEN WE WILL GO TO LUNCH. SHE HAS AN APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DOCTOR AND WANTS TO MAKE SURE SHE KNOWS WHERE IT IS BEFORE SHE GOES. I KNOW WHERE IT IS (I USED TO GO THERE) SO THAT'S WHY I AM GOING WITH HER. THE OTHER DAY THEY CAME TO PICK ME UP IN A WHEELCHAIR VAN. I COULDN'T CLIMB THE STEPS SO THEY HAD TO USE THE RAMP. THOSE STEPS ARE PRETTY MUCH LIKE ON A BUS, SO I DON'T THINK I COULD DO THEM EITHER! NOT TO MENTION THERE ISN'T A BUS STOP CLOSE. I WONDER IF THE STAIR GLIDE HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME NOT BEING ABLE TO DO THE STEPS. MAYBE BECAUSE I DON'T DO STEPS ANYMORE I CAN'T. I DO EXERCISES THAT MIMIC STEPS THOUGH. YOU WOULD THINK THAT SINCE MUM IS SO AFRAID OF THE HOSPITAL THAT SHE WOULD DO EVERYTHING SHE COULD NOT TO END UP THERE INCLUDING EATING AND DRINKING! I HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL FOR HER. SHE CAN'T REFUSE SOFT FOOD AFTERWARDS, ESPECIALLY AFTER NOT EATING FOR A DAY. THERE WAS A WOMAN FROM SCOTLAND ON TV LAST NIGHT, AND SHE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THERE BEING NO SUNGLASSES IN SCOTLAND AND THERE IS NO NEED! YOU DO HAVE SOME SUNNY DAYS THOUGH DON'T YOU?

MARY- HOW NICE THAT YOUR FAVORITE ROUTE WAS PAVED. OTHERS MUST LIKE IT ALSO. THEY SHOULD KEEP IT CLEAR IN THE WINTER, OR MAY HAVE LAW SUITS AGAINST THEM.

LINDA- I HAVE HEARD NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS ABOUT THAT MOVIE! POOR BEN AFFLECK'S REPUTATION NEEDS A BUNCH OF GOOD MOVIES. THE LAST FEW HE HAS MADE AND BEEN IN THOUGH HAVE BEEN GOOD.

SHERRY- A LOT OF PEOPLE REFUSE TO GET THE SHOT BECAUSE THEY SAY IT MAKES THEM SICK. I HAVE NEVER HAD THAT EXPERIENCE. I DO TRY TO STOCK UP, BUT ONLY HAVE ROOM FOR SO MANY THINGS. I HAVE TO HAVE MY FEET WAY BACK ON THE STAIR GLIDE SO THAT I DON'T KNOCK OVER ALL THE THINGS I HAVE STORED ON THE CELLAR STEPS!

WISPY............ HOW NICE OF YOUR GD TO BRING YOU BACK A SARONG......... FROM ASIA I CAN IMAGINE IT HAS A BEAUTIFUL PATTERN....... COME TO THINK OF IT I HAVEN'T SEEN CLOTHES ON A LINE EITHER.......... THAT'S THE OLD FASHION WAY AS THEY SAY.... CONGRATS ON YOUR EYE EXAM AND SUGAR LEVEL........ YOUR ALL READY FOR YOUR TRIP..... SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT KIM'S FENCE......

LINDA............ YOUR VEGGIE BEEF SOUP SOUNDS DELICIOUS..... I HAVEN'T USED MY SLOW COOKER IN AGES....... BUT IT'S A GREAT WAY TO HAVE A MEAL WAITING ONCE YOU GET HOME...... WAY TO GO EATING IN YOUR CALORIE RANGE ALL WEEK........ I HOPE YOU GOT A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP.

WILLOW......... I ONLY CLEANED ONE PUMPKIN OUT........... AND I JUST PAINTED IT AND I ALSO DID THE INSIDE...... I'M HOPING THE PAINT WILL HELP IT TO HOLD OUT LONGER AND NOT GET WILTED.... PLUS I WON'T BE CARVING IT..... I HAVE IDEA'S THIS YEAR AND I'M HOPING THEY BOTH TURN OUT GREAT... THE OTHER ONE I JUST LEFT IT AND PAINTED IT...... SO IT SHOULD BE OK..

MAC............... SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A COUPLE BUSY DAYS........... IT SOUNDS LIKE THE CHURCH IS MOVING ALONG BUT YES YOU HAVE TO DO YOUR OWN WORK IF YOU WANT IT DONE....... GREAT TO HEAR YOU GOT TO THE GYM AND HAD A GOOD WORKOUT...... YOU'D THINK WITH MOM BEING SO WORRIED ABOUT GOING INTO THE HOSPITAL THAT SHE WOULD EAT BETTER AND TRY TO KEEP HER HEALTH UP......

WELL FOLKS, IT IS ONLY COMING UP TO 8.30PM BUT I AM YAWNING MY HEAD OFF. I THINK I MAY HAVE PUSHED MYSELF OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS WITHOUT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP. HOPEFULLY I WILL RECTIFY THAT TONIGHT AS I HAVE TO BE UP EARLY IN ANY CASE TOMORROW MORNING. I NOW HAVE MORE ON MY PLATE AS WELL SINCE I AM LEFT TO TRY AND GET STUFF SORTED OUT AT THE CHURCH. NOBODY ELSE CAN SEE WHAT I AM SAYING AND I FINALLY MANAGED TO CONVINCE OUR MINISTER, WHO ADMITS HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT WHAT I AM SPEAKING OF, LOL. ANYWAY, I HAVE ENOUGH TO DO WITHOUT THIS BUT IF I DO NOT SORT THE PROBLEMS OUT THEN THEY ARE GOING TO BE LEFT AND WILL ONLY GET WORSE. I RECKON THERE IS A LOT TO THE SAYING THAT F YOU NEED A JOB DOING PROPERLY THEN DO IT YOURSELF. I ADMIT I COULD DO WITHOUT THIS ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE BUT IT HAS TO BE DONE. SO TOMORROW IS LOOKING OT START OUT A BUSY ONE WHATEVER WAY I GO.

SO I AM NOW CALLING IT A NIGHT AND AM GOING TOT RY AND GET A REALLY EARLY ONE. I WILL HAVE A BIT OF A READ BUT LIGHTS OUT WILL NOT BE TOO LONG IN COMING I DO NOT THINK, LOL.

I WISH ALL OF YOU A SMASHING EVENING YOURSELVES AND WILL SEE YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE.

BECAUSE BOTH MARY AND TRISH WERE AVAILABLE TODAY I DID TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO THE GYM. ACTUALLY I SURPRISED MYSELF AS I DID NOT EXPECT TO GERT SO MUCH DONE AFTER DOING EXERCISE AT HOME YESTERDAY. MY LEGS WERE STILL A BIT SORE THIS MORNING BUT I AM HAPPY AND I HAVE A DAY OF REST TOMORROW.

APART FROM THAT NOT MUCH TO TELL YOU ABOUT EXCEPT MUM IS NOT VERY WELL. SHE HAS THAT ENDOSCOPY TOMORROW AND I THINK IT IS REALLY GETTING TO HER. SHE HAS HAD VERY REAL A AGONISING TUMMY PAINS TODAY SO HAS NOT EATEN ANYTHING. SHE HAS PROMISED TO TELL THE DOCTORS ABOUT THIS BUT WE WILL PRE-EMPT THAT IN ANY CASE BY MENTIONING IT OURSELVES. IT HAS BEEN BUILDING UP OVER THE PAST WEEK BUT TODAY WAS THE WORST. SHE IS WORRIED THAT THINGS WILL NOT GO WELL AND THAT THEY WILL TAKE HER BACK INTO HOSPITAL. I FOUND OUT TODAY THAT HER BIG FEAR IS THAT SHE WILL GO INTO HOSPITAL AND NOT COME OUT. SHE WANTS TO DIE IN HER OWN BED. PERSONALLY, IF IT GOT TO THAT STAGE, THEN I AM AFRAID SHE WOULD HAVE TO GO INTO HOSPITAL AS WE WOULD DEFINITELY NOT BE ABLE TO COPE WITH HER. IT SOUNDS HORRIBLE BUT WHAT WOULD WE BE ABLE TO DO? SHE WOULD AT LEAST BE MADE COMFORTABLE IN HOSPITAL AND THERE ARE QUALIFIED STAFF ON HAND TO ADMINISTER TO HER. WE JUST COULD NOT DO THAT. IT IS A MORBID SUBJECT I KNOW, BUT IT IS ONE THAT IS AT THE BACK OF MUM'S MIND THESE DAYS.

HAVE NOT MADE UP MY MIND AS TO WHETHER I WILL ACCOMPANY HER TOMORROW. I WAS NOT GOING TO BECAUSE OF HER BEHAVIOUR THIS WEEK, BUT WITH THIS HAPPENING I DO NOT KNOW. THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO EXCEPT KEEP MARYA ND TRISH COMPANY, AND MUM HAS BEEN TOLD THIS. IT WILL BE A CASE OF TAKING HER IN AND THEN HANGING AROUND FOR A FEW HOURS WHILST SHE RECOVERS. THERE IS NO ANAESTHETIC INVOLVED SO THAT IS GOOD, BUT SHE MAY HAVE A BIT OF A SORE THROAT SO I WILL BE EXPECTING HER TO USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE TO NOT EAT. UNFORTUNATELY, SHE WILL NOT BE GETTING AWAY WITH THAT TOMORROW. EVEN IF IT IS ONLY A BOWL OF SCRAMBLED EGGS, SHE WILL HAVE SOMETHING BECAUSE OF THE FACT SHE HAS NOT EATEN TODAY.

OTHER THAN THAT, I HAVE BEEN DOWN TO THE CHURCH AND HAVE MOVED ALL OF THE RUBBISH FROM THE BACK TO THE FRONT ALONG WITH THE BUILDING RUBBLE THAT WAS DUG UP RECENTLY. I AM EXPECTING ALL OF THIS TO BE REMOVED BY COMMUNITY SERVICES IF THE CHAP THAT CAME TO SEE ME LAST EVENING REMEMBERS. IF HE DOESN'T THEN I WILL SUBMIT A DIRECT REQUEST. WE DO NOT HAVE A LOT OF TIME LEFT TO GET EVERYTHING COMPLETED AND WITH THE WEATHER BEING UNPREDICTABLE WE ARE GOING TO LOSE TIME THROUGH THAT SO IT IS HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OVER THE COMING COUPLE OF WEEKS. SEVERAL THINGS HAVE GOT RESOLVED SO IT IS NOW DOWN TO ME REALLY TO GET THE REST ORGANISED. WISH ME LUCK!

LINDA, HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT THAT MOVIE. NOT BEING A MOVIE BUFF NEVER GET UP TO DATE WITH ALL THAT IS RELEASED AND OFTEN IT IS MARY OR TRISH THAT TELL ME ABOUT ONE THEY THINK I WOULD LIKE. GLAD YOU ENJOYED IT EVEN IF R RATED.

WISPY, I HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT THE MANUFACTURERS USING FISH SKINS, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE I SUPPOSE. IT IS ALSO THE OTHER THINGS THEY TEND TO ADD INTO THEIR PRODUCTS WHCIH I DON'T LIKE EITHER. SO, EXPENSIVE OR NOT, IF OYU CAN GET DECENT FISH FINGERS USING REAL FISH THEN I SAY GO FOR IT. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, ONLY RECENTLY IS SALMON COMING DOWN TO WHERE THE AVERAGE PERSON IN THE STREET HAS A CHANCE TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD IT. CONSIDERING THAT SCOTTISH SALMON IS AMONGST THE BEST IN THE WORLD YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT FOR LOCALS IT WOULD BE REASONABLY PRICED, BUT IT IS ONLY THE ADVENT OF SALMON FARMS THAT HAS ENABLED THE PRICE TO START COMING DOWN AND EVEN WILD SALMON IS NOW WITHIN RANGE, ALTHOUGH YOU CAN STILL PAY A FORTUNE FOR IT IN HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS. IN A WAY I AM GLAD I SAID NO TO CAMPING AS WITH THE WEATHER BEING WHAT IT IS I WOULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE CHILLY TO SAY THE LEAST AND MOST CERTAINLY WOULD HAVE GOT WET. I WILL FIT MY CAMPS IN FROM MARCH UNTIL SEPTEMBER NEXT YEAR SO THAT HOPEFULLY I CAN MAKE USE OF THE BEST OF THE WEATHER. INSTEAD I WILL BE TAKING MY GRANDKIDS OUT FOR THE DAY. I KNOW THEY WILL LOVE THAT. SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT THE WILD WINDS AND I FEEL FOR KATY LOSING HER FENCE. I DO HOPE IT IS COVERED BY INSURANCE AS TO REPLACE A FENCE IS NOT CHEAP. I DO HEAR YOU ABOUT THE CAMERA. YOU HAVE MENTIONED IT BEFORE. IT WOULD BE AWESOME TO SEE SOME OF YOUR PAINTINGS, THOUGH. WOULD YOU GO BACK TO THAT IF YOU HAD THE TIME? IT WOULD BE SOMETHING ELSE TO KEEP YOU GOING AND YOU NEVER KNOW, IT COULD ALSO PROVIDE YOU WITH ANOTHER SOURCE OF INCOME. WHEN I SEE WHAT IS ON OFFER THESE DAYS I SOMETIMES THINK MY YOUNGEST GRANDSON COULD DO BETTER, AND THEY COST A FORTUNE TO BUY AS WELL. THE ARTISTS ARE REALLY HAVING A LAUGH AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED AND REALLY MUST COUNT ON THOSE GULLIBLE ENOUGH TO PURCHASE THE SO CALLED PAINTINGS..

MARY, GLAD YOU ARE ABLE TO ENJOY THE AUTUMNAL WEATHER. OURS IS PAST NOW AND WE ARE HAVING TO START WRAPPING UP TO GO OUT AND ON ODD DAYS THE FIRE IS BEING PUT ON AS WELL. MAKE THE MOST OF IT AS LILY WILL ENJOY IT AND YOU JUST NEVER KNOW FOR HOW LONG IT WILL LAST. I AM ALSO PLEASED FOR YOU THAT THE COUNCIL HAS SEEN FIT TO PUT IN A PROPER PATH IN THE DIRECTION YOU LIKE TO WALK IN. AS YOU SA, IT WILL BE A MATTER OF THEM KEEPING IT CLEAR DURING THE WINTER MONTHS, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW. THEY MAY JUST DO THAT SINCE IT IS NEW.

CHRIS, WE WERE POSTING AT THE SAME TIME SO NEARLY MISSED YOU. REALLY GOOD TO SEE YOU BACK ON THE THREAD. A SHAME THE CABIN IS GONG TO TAKE SO LONG STILL, BUT AS YOU SAY, IT IS DOWN TO FUNDING AND YOU CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH ON THAT FRONT. SURELY IT WILL BE READY COME SPRING AT LEAST? I HOPE SO IN ORDER THAT YOU AND THE FAMILY CAN MOVE IN AND SETTLE DOWN. LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING MORE OF YOU AND ALSO ANY UPDATES ON YOUR PAGE.

OK FOLKS, THAT'S IT FOR THE TIME BEING. HOPE YOU ALL; HAVE A MARVELLOUS DAY. SEE YOU LATER.
