Aww Mel.. that just sucks. Thank goodness Rick is there though! Even if it is hard to deal with now, he would have been kicking himself if he was not there if something happens to her.

Emily- ugh the croup blows. Sorry Gweny is sick.

Nicole- call the doc girl

Mel- wow. Sorry about his mom. I know nothing about that stuff, but I hope the best outcome happens.

Oh Mel sorry to hear about MIL... what is COPD? I have heard of it but I have no idea what that is.

Wendy you here? How was your weekend away? How is the ankle?

I vote Costco (I love this place for some items)

Go JAX!
Glad you are better Tracy

Mikayla has those same shoes. She's actually had them on non-stop since Thursday (yes, even sleeping in them :rolleyes:). They're adorable!

I'm sure most of you saw that thread about my MIL having her colon removed.

She is not doing well. She has pretty advanced COPD and they are apprehensive to give her narcotics for pain, so they placed an epidural. But, they never really got the drip in the epidural at the appropriate amount to control the pain without the need for the button to be pushed an additional 4x every hour. She is not strong enough to push this button, so Rick has been doing it for her. Sad But, I just got off the phone with him and he was so upset he was crying. At first I had thought that she had died. But, what I got of the convo, was that they removed the epidural and now her oxygen levels keep dropping. (I assume because she is holding her breath from the pain???????) That is the on;y thing I can think of what removing the epidural has to do with her o2 levels dropping??????

I'm so sorry. :bigarmhug:

Sorry Mel. That's hard. I expect she is breathing very shallowly from the pain and that is dropping her O2 levels.

I called the doc. I see a member of the clinic on Wednesday morning. Somehow I don't think its anything to be worried about, but I'm going in just in case.

Love the shoes Smile

Mel, that is AWESOME about Jax using the 'k' sound correctly!!!!!! Yahoo So sorry about your MIL. There must be something with epidurals and oxygen levels, because when i had my epi while in labor, they monitored my oxygen level... ? You must have mixed feelings about all this, since I know you haven't had the best relationship with her. :bigarmhug:

Hi all. Thanks for thinking of me Shannon, I'm rarely on on weekends. No I haven't called the doctor yet. He was closed before my class ended on Friday and I'm in class this morning. Its on my lunch to-do list. From what I can tell, I think its probably a small cyst but given my family history (yes Candace, BRCA1 and 2) I will have it checked out. Just what I need, something else health wise to worry about.

Kelly, I'm sorry that you have to have a biopsy. KUP.

Emily, sorry that you have to worry about DH. Hope he gets in touch soon.

Happy birthday to Miss Lucy. Colleen, I hope you decide to share pics...especially if she's wearing some super adorable MJ Smile

Deb, hope your sellers get their chit together and you can close tomorrow.

Mel, your post makes me happy. Really really happy Smile

Ruth, that mousse sounds amazing.

Tracy I'm sorry that you were so sick. Sounds like norovirus to me. Hope not.

Emily C3, sorry that G is sick. How is she today.

Hi Peg Smile

Kat, sorry that you're in a mood.

That's all I remember, sorry to anyone I missed. Had a busy weekend, DH worked the whole darn thing. I had dinner with my sis on Friday...she's starting round 2 of IVF and they've maxed her out on meds. She feels like chit, but it will all be worth it if there's a baby in the end. Keep her in your prayers will you?

Busy day here...I have got to figure out what is wrong with this grades spreadsheet. I get a different anwer every time I run it. ARGH. I hate days like this.

Nicole

Where is she in the process?

Day straight from the depths of hades here so far. Don't even have time to get into it. I will say this much: i sat on the kitchen floor for a full 5+ minutes with both boys, who were crying because they had each fallen down and i was simultaneously trying to comfort them and prevent them from injuring each other because they HATE sharing my lap and just hit and shove at each other when i try to hold them at the same time. A.W.F.U.L.

Ruth. :bighug: So sorry your day has started out on a sour note.

I don't have the best relationship with her. But, I don't wish her misery or for that matter dying in misery. I'm very concerned about my husband. He is a very sensitive compassionate man and his tender little heart is just breaking in 2 watching his mom suffer so bad. Sad Also, if she does die, he just doesn't deal with death in a healthy manner. He will get very depressed and angry, and this sounds selfish but I'm not sure I can go through this with him again now that we have children to parent. It took him well over 5 years to get over his dad's death, he was not the man I knew for a long time. I am dreading this period of time. Sad

Mel- :bigarmhug:

Ruth- :bigarmhug:

Karina is home, still sick, Daddy is watching her and I am at work. She's getting better but it's slow. She really messed up the area under her nose from wiping it so much, it is red and raw and she can't seem to stop. DH is trying to get her to control herself there. Hopefully she'll be ok for daycare tomorrow....

DH got me a nice coach wallet (looks like a clutch) and a prenatal massage for my bday. He asked for ideas and these were the 2 I came up with. I really like the wallet and am looking forward to the massage which he scheduled the weekend after next....we can't go out to dinner tonight because he has class but we might go out Wed night.

Nice bday presents.

Ruth- sorry about the crumby start to your day. I hope it gets better from here.

Mel- I can only imagine. I get very depressed when it comes to deathy. Unhealthy too. It is a tough thing to deal with. I hope things are not as rough as last time when that time comes.

Colleen- what color are the walls?

Cristina, use tissues will lotion, that is the first step from having the nose get to that point. Even though tissues are so soft, paper products pull every ounce of oils from your skin. Most of the time the red raw skin is not caused by snot, but from the tissue. Also, now that Jax has picked up the nasty habit of sleeve wiping. :puke: his nose will get like this. Blistex lip balm, or Burt's Bees lip balm on the raw skin feels incredible good, the mint stops the burning and the wax puts a very nice barrier over it.

Happy birthday, Cristina!!! :party: Sorry Karina still isn't better. Sad I agree that tissue with lotion is much easier on the skin.

Emily, forgot to comment earlier about G's sickness. Sad I hope she's doing better soon and that you can find something that will give her relief.

How's the other Emily feeling?

Where's Candace?

OK, about Sams/Costco. It's been quite a while since I was in a Costco (the closest one to me is ~30 min away) but i think they're probably nicer. BUT i find that i only save a *little* on the things we buy at Sams. It was HUGE when we were buying formula, but i've been able to price match or come very near their prices with just about everything else. Gum is definitely quite a bit cheaper at Sam's, but honestly I think i am really only saving a dollar here and a dollar or two there. After i pay my $35 annual fee, i really wonder if i'm even breaking even (or barely) every year. we only shop there maybe twice a month or so. i do tend to buy fruit there, but again, not really sure i'm saving THAT much more than at TJs or Aldis or even the regular grocery store with their sales. For example, their bananas are 1.50 a bunch, which usually has about 6 bananas. TJs sells their bananas for 19 cents each... so 6 bananas is $1.20... huh, they're actually MORE expensive at Sams! Can you tell i just now did the math? lol hmmmm, definitely need to give this more thought... after i help noelle find her bubble popper. :roll:

MIL is doing better. They decided to put her on a cpap and give her some narcotics. They did that to her one other time a few years ago when she was fighting asthma so bad that she really needed to be on a ventilator. BUT, it's very hard to get a COPD patient off a ventilator. It was a catch 22. She was in so much pain she was not breathing properly but anything they can administer for pain also slows down your breathing. When Rick could finally communicate to me what was happening and explain the situation and why they didn't want her on a ventilator, I mentioned the cpap like they did in the past. I'm just so ticked that these people do this day in and day out and they have their heads so far up their butts that they would allow a 73 year old woman to suffer in misery for an entire day and night and it takes me to suggest a cpap for them to have a lightbulb moment???????

my costco items that can't be beat on price

chicken- boneless skinless breasts in pouches
organic vanilla animal crackers
goldfish
soy sauce & Tabasco
organic chicken broth boxes
quinoa
Tillamook cheddar cheese slices
Milk I will buy when I am there.. though it's not cost effective to go there just to buy that.

I never buy fruit/ veggies etc.. due to cost and amounts .... as Ruth said bananas are cheaper at TJ's or Target even.

Tracy, I'm sorry DH is sick, are you sure it wasn't food poisoning? I didn't mean to, but I had to chuckle when you said you heard DH in the bathroom getting sick. Guess he should have been more caustious of what he ate when he claimed he wasn't feeling well yesterday. Wink Poor guy, though.

I felt a little better hearing him throw up too. :oops: I was just so sure that he was being a big baby about it all. Knowing that he was really sick makes me feel...better somehow. That sounds awful!

I didn't take Jax to school today. I don't feel good. I fell Saturday and strained the muscles in my lower back and my shoulder. I've been taking too much ibuprofen and am sick to my stomach. I REALLY need a muscle relaxant, but don't feel like dragging everyone to the doc with me.

JAX IS USING THE 'K' IN CASUAL CONVERSATION. You guys, this is SO HUGE. HUGE. Since July we have been working on this sound. It took MONTHS to teach him how to make just the sound in isolation, MONTHS before we had one single success. Then it took months before he could produce it in a single word with a pause, and only when doing drill work in therapy. So the word 'cat' he would say 'k' breath 'at',FOR MONTHS we would practice the 'k' with different ending sounds, always with a pause. If we tried removing the pause he would revert back to a 't' sound. MONTH OF THIS, I TELL YA. MONTHS. 2 weeks ago in therapy, he successfully removed the pause just a couple of times. Last week in therapy, the pause was successfully removed 95%, of course just isolated words, he was still reverting back to a 't' if incorporated into a sentence about 95% of the time, but did have a couple of successes. The sentence successes weren't fluid though, it was him pausing and concentrating before the 'k'. WELL...........This weekend he has thrown 'k' sounds into casual conversation very fluidly. This morning he said several 'k' sounds correctly and fluidly without interrupting his sentences. this was our conversation.

Me: Jax, do you hear yourself?
Jax: Yes I do
Me: What do you hear yourself doing?
Jax: I'm using that 'k' sound and you are so proud of me. Mom, your hugging me too hard. Can I Have a Sucker, please?

Great news on Jax!! But wait, you fell?!? How did you fall??

So sorry Ruth Sad I'm willing to bet that that DOES get better. There were certainly times in my life that I was jealous of having to "share" my sister...but we are so, so close. IT's a bond like no other.

Mel - sorry to hear about your MIL too. Was Rick's father's death sudden or was there time to "prepare"? I'm just wondering if maybe his mom's death won't be quite as emotionally devastating knowing she's been sick a while. Of course it will still be devastating - she's his mom! But, I hope that came across the way I intended...

How I fell, I had put the kids down for a nap, and I was sitting on the couch with my laptop. I decided I wanted a cup of coffee, put the laptop on the ottoman, (like I do ALL.THE.TIME.) went and brewed a cup of coffee. came back to sit down, and as I was stepping over the laptop power cord, I turned to sit all in one motion, my toe got hooked on the cord and I over-reacted. I fell into the sofa, with my upperbody turned and my hips straight, and cought myself with all my weight on one shoulder trying not to spill coffee everywhere. It was stupid, I totally strained the muscles on the right side just above my back, and I stressed my rotator cuff. The really stupid thing, is the night before I did the exact same motion when I slipped on a toy wrench on the hardwood floor and caught myself with the same hand on the counter, in the same twisted position. :rolleyes:

No Rick's dad's death wasn't sudden. He died of lung cancer. Sad

Mel, what you described about the hospital your MIL is at is why I am soooo grateful I am at Duke. I know all hospitals make mistakes, and fortunately, I haven't encountered any problems in my treatment - but I would like to think that they have basic care figured out!!!! I feel confident in my doctors and nurses and believe that I am receiving proper treatment...it goes a long way with my mental frame of mind!

Emily (ms) = how are you feeling?

Ruth, I am hanging around today. A lady that sat with me a lot during chemo popped by unexpectedly this morning. She stayed until 1pm - then I fed the kids lunch and got them in the bed - it was great to see her. Just cut into my computer time. Smile

No Sam's or Costco membership here. I occasionally go to Sam's with my mom, but wipes are about the only thing I would need to buy there now.

I'm gonna try to rest my eyes for just a minute and then clean up some. MIL will be here at 4:30ish to pick up the kids. Radiation every night at 6pm for me until Feb. 8 and then my time will change again.

Mel, sorry about your fall.

Tracy, did you find anything to eat?

Karrie and Kelly, I love those shoes!! I didn't see them at my Target!!! I might have to go look. Because we don't have enough shoes. ROFL

Julie, what are you up to today? Is Joe at home?

Aghh....maybe I'll bbl.

mel.....glad your mil is doing better...glad they finally figured something out with your help..hope it works for her...sad about FIL......

death of relatives...sad and sucks....I have to say though it can be very peaceful...i helped my father and my MIL die at home...both were home on hospice and i was next to FIL when he died and i am sooooo very thankful that i got those moments with each of them.....i was right next to each and everyone of them when they took their last breaths and i would not change one single thing......it might help that i'm a nurse and i understand more than others but I like to think that each of them were more comfortable with me standing next to them.....i know and feel that my father waited for me to be there alone before he died and my mil and father in law both looked me right in the eyes and couldn't speek but looking back it was almost like a 'help' me look they had in their eyes....help me be comfortable!!!!!

Mel- did Rick do therapy when his father passed? Grieving is the sort of thing that doesn't necessarily require therapy but it does require processing and rituals and knowing when to ask for help when you get "stuck." They've found that more complex, conflicted relationships make grieving much harder than a simple loving relationship.

I'm glad they put your MIL on the CPAP and you're right, how stupid it took that long to get it done. Hopefully she can improve from here....

Mel, sorry about MIL Sad I hope the CPAP and drugs help . I hope DH is ok. Yay for the K sound!

Ruth, I hope that your day got better. We have a sams membership. We buy toilet paper, paper towels, starbucks coffee drinks, cups of oranges, baby wipes, animal crackers, gold fish, and sometimes their clothes.

Kelly, we bought those shoes for Belle in December for family pictures, but in black. They're nearly worn off on the toes from tripping and general wear. She loves them though and refers to them as her tap tap shoes.

Emily, I hope Gweny is feeling better.

I know I forgot stuff, and I'm sorry. I'm just really tired.

I had a stupid long day. I switched back to my old schedule with the exception of my advanced math topics class I'm teaching. I walked into that class, the bell rang, and one of my kids fell out of his chair into a full blown seizure. Yelled for another teacher to get help, did our best to get him on his side, got the kids to another room, and waited it out. Felt like it lasted forever. He eventually stopped and then fell asleep. By this point the nurse, 3 assistant principals, and various teachers were in my room. He finally woke up enough to ride in a wheel chair down to the nurses office to sleep there. Turns out they're trying new meds with him and this one didn't work. If you haven't lived through watching someone have a seizure I can't begin to describe the utter helpless feeling you get watching. There's really nothing you can do but try to keep them from hurting themselves too much (think putting a jacket under their head to keep them from beating their heads on the tile floor).. He woke up by the time his mom was there to get him, so he's ok. Scared the crap out of the rest of my juniors and seniors too.

Then I just had a major headache for the rest of the day. Also got a check in the mail that I've been waiting on and the bank is holding it for a couple days. No biggie right? Loves me not released new clothes and I wanted to get Belle this:

Both the dress and the leggings.

And they're sold out Sad

Atleast the dress is. I hope there's something that I fall in love with from MJ.

It's 5:30 and I'm just sitting down to the computer for the first time today.

I've had a migraine since 9am. The only think that has helped at all is caffiene which means I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight and the stupid headache is back. Ugh!

I didn't read back but saw a few things...

Emily - Try Michael Jackson Experience on the wii!! So much more fun than Just Dance!

Ruth - I like Costco. I think for paper products alone my membership is worth it. Also, I think it's great for having parties (buying fruit bowls and veggie trays). I buy laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent and dishwasher soap maybe once a year. And I think I've had my box of trash bags for over a year. Just having less to remember to buy at the regular grocery store is enough for me, lol.

Candace, good luck at radiation tonight, I hope it is not too painful for you.

Kerri, cute outfit! I will never forget when Gwendolyn had a seizure... you are right, it is one of the scariest things to watch.

Colleen, how is painting going?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CRISTINA!!!!! I hope you have a great day!

So MIL came down this weekend and told me that she wants to get a team together for the Susan G Komen 3-day walk. Anyone want to make a road (or plane) trip to join us? Smile Come on, you know you want to! Wink

Holy crap.

Put M to bed at 8 as usual. I get up and putter around a bit knowing I'm not going to be able to sleep but having a headache so eventually I do go lay down early but can't sleep. Finally fall asleep around 12:30ish.

1:45 - Mommy, I need you (we cosleep still so he is right next to me). The SECOND I pick my head up, my pillow is covered in bright green puke.

Get up, strip bed, strip pillows (all except the one he is still puking on - pillow seemed like the best place to aim at the time). Get him changed toss all pukey stuff in bathtub. Back to bed.

An hour later - repeat (except With puke bucket). He also poops so I go change him. Bright green - like a green crayon. I freaked the heck out!

Called G about half dozen times - he never answered.

Miles fell back asleep finally, but I was up all night freaking out about what was wrong. My pedi used to have an after hours number to call but I couldn't find it last night. Finally at around 5 this morning, I realized that he had eaten a blue "go giants" bagel yesterday and that is probably what caused the horrible color.

He was up at 7 like usual. I'm tired. Must go buy new pillows today, lol.

Emily ms- oh my goodness. I would have freaked out too. Good thing you remembered about the bagel.

Emily- When is your 3 day walk? I was thinking of doing the one here in October, but I dont know if I can get a team together.

Good morning everyone. Work, work, work. Sofia needs diapers, but my delima is that she falls asleep in the car on the ride home so how to ge the diapers. I have a Sam's membership, but hardly use it. I dont know why. Think I need to go there more often.

Wow Emily, that sounds aweful. :bigarmhug: That color would freak me out too, but I bet you're right, it was just the bagel. :bigarmhug: I hope you have a very low key day today with no more pukes!

Kerri, so scary about the kid having the seizure. I've never experienced that kind before. Cute outfit! I do like the blue one better too, but it may just be the background in the pink one. But the pink one is still super cute!

Mel, how's MIL doing today? How's Rick doing?

My Dad is here til Friday so can't catch up at all, but Mel just wanted to send you some :bigarmhug: for the stuff with MIL. What a crappy situation all around, eventually the inevitable will happen, and that's just gonna suck. Sad

Kelly, any word yet about your test??

Morning ladies.

Emily, I'm so sorry, that must have been terribly scary. I bet it was the bagel, but i would have freaked out too. Sorry about the pillows Sad

Em C3, sorry, that is out of my budget this year. Maybe in a year or two I'll convince DH to go to Cali Smile

Mel, yes, how are MIL and Rick?

Kerri, I like the blue one better too, but I think its the background on the pink one that throws me off.

Hi Karrie :wavehello:

Good morning!

Emily, oooooh no to bright green puke! That would've freaked me out too. Hope you both feel better today.

Kat, The walk here is in November. I am kinda worried about if I will be able to fund raise enough money, but hopefully it will all work out. I have been wanting to do this for so long.

Kelly, I love Sandra Boynton too!! My fave is "Not the Hippopotomus" I think that is the title. Used to read it to B all the time when he was little. Awww, memories!

Peg, I wish you could make a road trip too!

Julie, where are you?

Colleen, did you get your painting all done?

Mel, thinking of you and Rick and MIL :bigarmhug:

Need more coffee. Gweny was either up coughing or diggin her toes into my leg all.night.long so I am exhausted. Hopefully she feels better today. A few months back I think we were talking about steam mops on here.... well, just a friendly reminder, when the directions say to use distilled water, use the dang distilled water. I have a clogged mop head now and I am about at my wits end trying to unclog it. About to give up and just order a replacement.

ETA: It takes me too long to post and there are always three or four new post by the time I submit...
Julie, thanks for checking in with us Wink Enjoy your time with your dad!

Nicole, how are you feeling? Did you ever go to the doctor last week? I am sure you updated but I prolly missed it.

Hi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I played catch up on my dishes. I still am not done, but going two days in a row and then Cheyennes fever came back Saturday night, I had piles upon piles of dishes. When momma is busy, no one else helps, and so nothing gets done. I AM going to finish them TODAY.

Mel, hope the CPAP helps her.

Peg, made me tear up too. I think my grandpa waited to pass away until my dad got there, we were all there, except for my dad, and he was on his way, and grandpa was just hanging on and then a few minutes after dad arrived, he went ahead and passed away.

I dont deal well with deaths either. I still dont think I am over my dads and sisters......I cant talk about them without seriously bawling. The kids ask about them and I answer their questions, but hard to not do so without tears.

Emily, wow on the colorful puke.

Emily (C3), I learned on the distilled water too. We have very hard water. After I used tap water to mop, I had a white film on the top of my tiles.....so I went to the store to get distilled and it sure helps.

Julie, enjoy your visit with your dad.

Kerri, so scary on the seizure. Is it true about keeping them from swallowing their tongues too? We had a kid in our school that had them, but I never witnessed one. .

Zack got cleared to play basketball....today is his first and the teams last game....He is so excited to suit up. I hope they let him go in for just a little bit...He is geared up.

Any of yall had experience to the sonic booms.....One scared me so bad I jumped up out of my chair....They shake the house. They do this for sure weekly, and some weeks it is a daily thing. It isnt so bad when you hear the jets, but my gosh, when you cant hear them and BOOM you whole house shakes......

sorry if I forgot anyone....got distracted with the booms....been typing this for a little while now, trying to add as I go......

busy day: dishes, working out, basketball game out of town.

is anyone elses house so very bad? I cannot keep up......but I am going to start trying this week......

Thanks for thinking of us. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Smile

Might be heading to Michigan. DH is feeling guilty about being away from us, even though he needs to be where he is. I (stupidly) suggested that maybe if we went up there he wouldn't feel so torn about where he needs to be. Why did I do that? This is not the week that we can just pick up and go on a whim. His mom is just not doing well at all, and now we are looking at other issues that come with having surgery and then remaining immobile and not getting up and moving. Sad

Mel is he going to be there all week? Maybe go for the weekend? I hope she gets well soon. HUGS

Kristy- It took me YEARS to even utter my dads name before I could do it without crying.. that is normal!
sonic booms.. no idea... never heard one .. never intend to.. what are they anyways?

Oh I'm sorry Mel. I think Rick might be in a better frame of mind if you go to him. I hope that MIL recovers.

Kristi, you are not the only one. I'm at the point where if I can see my kitchen counters and the house is clean enough to be healthy, I consider it a good day. Good luck with the dishes Smile

Hugs Kelly.

Nicole
