    Sometimes I feel so all alone. Monday was Phil's birthday. There I was recovering alone from surgery and feeling a wee bit sorry for myself. Emme was there looking over at me pitifully wondering when mom is gonna get back up and play with her. I know I have family and friends who care and were there after I got out of the hospital and I can call. But it's not the same as having your husband there by your side even if...

      Eternal   Good thing to get your thyroid checked out. Might need a bit of replacement? Some drs just don't get grief and its affects. Maybe they need more classes on it. I gave up trying to explain to my dr but maybe next time in to see him I will broach the subject. hugs, Irene

        Hi JackieJo  Finally moving better. Only three holes visible...yup laproscopically (vertically not done horizontally like my DIL)... but darn they sure did hurt. Top one still aggravating but day by day getting better. Emme n I just walked 3 short blocks now for a doggie nap. :)  Irene

          Ozgirl   If you want it go for it! Just remember you are gonna get lots of licks in the face from that pup. lol  I had said I wouldn't get another dog but I would be so lost without my little Emme. They are the best therapists. Irene

              Hi Robin So sorry about your dog on top of losing you husband. I remember taking my dogs to the vets shortly after my husband Phil passed away. Only to learn that his beloved little pug had cancer. She was so devoted to him and then afterwards clung to me. Made it thru one operation only to have it return later. That time I did not put her thru the ordeal since she was comfortable. But she really just pined away for...

                Sarah   I am making a list of all the food I want to eat, though not the first day after surgery. lol  Eggplant parm is on top. I have not had it in a year because I thought at the time I had developed an allergic reaction to it. After having these attacks the past couple months I realize it was the gall bladder. I also want a chocolate cream egg. My girlfriend brought one over yesterday and told me to...

                  The plans are finally coming together. Seems like forever. A year ago I had my first attack. At the time the drs thought it might be aortic aneurism. Ruled out and they said "digestive." I never ate eggplant(my favorite) again. Over the summer I noticed an increase of indigestion but pushed it aside. Then on my way to Florida late Jan. another attack. Down there another mild one. When I got back I started making...

                    Glitzy    Been having bouts of gall bladder attacks and ready to take the darn thing out myself! Hopefully by end of next week. I see surgeon tomorrow. Only thing good is losing weight since I can't eat all the foods I'd normally like to. Irene

                      It was 3 years ago this afternoon that my beloved husband  Phil passed away. While I napped across fom him in a recliner and he was watching baseball. Unfortunately it was not his favorite team the Phillies that was on. I woke to the phone ringing and looked over on the sofa and realized he was gone. I know it was the way he would have wanted. Probably looked over at me and thought perfect time to leav...
