Hey my cyber friends!

Prayers out to Oklahoma- I hate tornadoes...

Been watching the tornado and KFOR-TV stream since before the tornado touched down today.

Just devastating. Cannot imagine what these folks are going through. Little kids at school missing.

There are no words.

Refreshes our perspective on what is important. We tend to forget until we witness tragedies such as this.

Red Cross is accepting donations by going to http://redcross.org  or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate 10 dollars.

Admire your timing.

I had posted on the last thread but somehow my post was the last one before changing to a new one.  However..........

I just wanted to tell 4Donks that I admire her bravery and courage.  I have survived lung cancer ten years now.  I know that she had a previous encounter with the big "C"
and won. She can do it again with her attitude and with the support of her family and her friends here.

I hope this stays here long enough for her to see it.  I had thought I had been banned and really didn't even remember my password but I found where I had written it down years ago.  Hello to all of you and

God Bless.

Carol

I heard that there were another 40 bodies being transported. If that's true it will be 91. I am afraid these are the rest of the third graders and teachers.  ::MonkeyAngel::

Oklahoma just saddens me so much. Watching the interviews of the people that lost everything ... so sad.

I am off to a field trip to the zoo with the youngest and my nieces for school. Severe weather expected again for us. Pray that we do not get it!

Babybear Hi !!!!

After our trouble with tornadoes my heart goes out to all those suffering right now. ::MonkeyAngel::

Didn't have a treatment yesterday because they were doing some construction at the cancer center so I got a long weekend.  ::donkey3::

First time in my life I now have a scale and have to keep track of my weight. The dogs are facinated with it...doesn't take much.  ::germanshep::

Thanks Sister...I think of you Connie, George and Belle often.

Got weighed today and any loss was negligible.. ::donkey3::
Fancy has claimed the scale as hers and won't let any of the dogs near it. She perches on it like a 5 lb vulture...too cute.
Tomorrow I have chemo drip while they do the radiation..double whammy but that's one more crossed off. ::MonkeyDance::

Hi friends..
Hubs, Molly and I are at the lake in the Ozarks.
We had to put Benji down on Monday. He had a cancerous tumor near his heart. We knew something was not right for the last fe months and we were right. Sad but it was time and I know that we were doing the  right thing so tht makes it easier.

4 Donks....positive vibes coming your way.
Sister, so happy to see Belle's video of her successful training...way to go Belle!
Brandi, loved your artwork for JSM and CC 's little nephews...such a sad occasion made so beautiful by you. You are a sweetheart...

Happy birthday Green Eyes and Babs.
Good thoughts to all my monkey friends...you fill a lot of hours for me!

Hi ::HelloKitty::  Son went back home on Tuesday. I was very sad to see him leave. The house is so quiet without him and his fur babies Buddy & Elvis. It was wonderful that he was able to stay with us a month. He almost decided to move here. But wasn't  sure he was ready to leave all his friends. ::MonkeyWink::

Hi Cookie! ::HelloKitty::

Have a safe and restful weekend at the lake!

Shout to 4Donks this morning as she undergoes another treatment.  Guess all her pups are at home "weighing" in?

Working both my little jobs today and then we are headed to the coast with my daughter and her hubs, and the other daughter and her roommate.  Chubbie and the criminal will stay here with my son.

It pains me to say we have a place very close to where the young child drowned last weekend in Orange Beach.  I can't stop thinking about his family.

Of course, I will lurk while away... ::MonkeyKiss::

Cookie,

Sorry about Benji.  But glad you are at peace with the decision. 

A good friend had to make the same call recently, and it always is heartbreaking.

Give Mollie an extra hug.

Ha - I remind the Criminal each day tHat every day is a gift to her.  She has survived rat poisoning and runs from the law about the biting...she is under house arrest for her days remaining.

Have a wonderful trip Caddy.  I was so sad to hear the little guy drowned. I was hoping they would find him alive.
Knowing the area and having it happen so close to your own property just makes it so much worse.  ::MonkeyAngel::

Good morning everyone!
 ::HelloKitty::

Has anyone heard from Trimm lately?  Really miss her and hope all is well.

Green Eyes, I know what you mean about a quiet house.  Moved George back to my little house and he cried because he was "home."  Still need some more work done from the hurricane damage, but nothing the workers can't do with him there.  Now the house is quiet.  Truthfully, I love it.  I am glad he could stay here and it will mean more work for me to drive to where he is, but at least I am not listening throughout the night for his coughing and having so many people coming and going.  I've just had to hand this over to the Lord to watch over him.

It's one more week and Belle should graduate.  I have missed her something terrible.  The latest picture shows her in a down/stay with a cat sitting right there.  Dear me, what a pleasure it will be to have a stress-free dog.  George grew to love her and wants "visitation rights."  That's so funny.   ::germanshep::

4 Donks, I keep praying for your strength and courage.  I got kinda tickled in my prayers last night.  I asked God to take some of my fat and give it to you.  I burst out laughing.  Thank goodness our God has a wonderful sense of humor and He knew I meant no disrespect.  So funny about Fancy guarding the scales.

Cookie, I am so sorry about Benji.  I know how painful such decisions are, but I am mighty glad you have Molly dog and that she has become such a good puppy.  Have a relaxing time in the Ozarks.  How long are you staying?  I really need to get away for a few days and am thinking about going to the mountains myself.  Deep Creek Lake is driveable so I may do that.  Can't decide whether to take Connie or not.  Being a bit selfish I know.

Babybear, good to see you again.  Glad everything is ok.

TBM, yes it is so sad about the folks in Moore, Oklahoma and the surrounding areas.  Hurricanes like we have are bad, but at least we usually get a lot of warning.  I think if I lived there I would have to have one of those below ground cellars.  But folks do the best they can and my heart is aching for them.

Brandi, how is Brandi?  Did I thank you for all the hard work on the video of Belle?  Thank you.  You're the bestest!

JSM and CC, I know this is a sad time in your life.  I feel your pain.  When I was a young woman they didn't allow for mothers to see the babies or have funerals.  So I wait for the day when God will introduce me to my two children I never saw.  They were born at different times, but I named them Abigail and Josiah.  You and your sister are in my prayers as well.

Babs, happy belated birthday!  Hope it was a yummy one!

Muffy   ::bee::  thanks for all you do.

Well, time for another cup of coffee.  If I missed anyone, I apologize.

Blessings to all.

I had put our name in to get a King Charles Cavalier puppy a few weeks ago, thinking we would have 3 dogs for awhile but now it will be 2. I really do not want another puppy but I am planning on Molly being a big help with this one. She will play with her and be her playmate so it probably won't be as bad as Molly was. She is the best dog ever now! We love her madly.
Puppy won't be joining us until about July 11th which will be great as I have a few vacations planned before that time...not looking forward to puppy days again.
Her name is going to be Ruby...for now...will decide when I meet her.

I had an idea it was close to Benji's time. Knowing you did the right thing for him makes it a bit easier to let him go, I hope. Bless Benji's little soul.

Thanks caddy -- she still has much to learn.  In another picture with another dog, the cat is rubbing up against that dog.  Now, when I see that --- it will be time to bring her home.  Gosh, I thought it was one more week -- it's actually 2.  Time is dragging.

How sweet of you to acknowledge me and the Criminal!

We have discovered her "hair"  in a spot on the foyer rug where she is not allowed to be.
She obviously lays there while we are gone for the day .

I need to learn how to post pics of her - she is so pretty - but looks are deceiving.

Been thinking of you today, 4 Donks!

Hope your day was tolerable.

 ::donkey3::

Another day and two treatment bite the dust. ::MonkeyGavel::  Just keeping on keeping on. ::donkey3::

Cookie so sorry about your pup.
Cadillac..sounds like your guys would fit in here but only if they can duplicate the 5 lb. vulture pose. ::MonkeyJnBox::
Sister..send the extra weight this way...all donations appreciated.
Brandi do you think you could add a halo over Lumps in the avatar ?  TIA

Sure, I can, 4 Donks. Good idea!

I'll post it here when it's done. Before I go to bed tonight.


You're the best...I couldn't take the "Lumps" out of the 4 donks cause he's still here with us .

I found a little brown bunny rabbit in the bushes/shrubs in my backyard this morning.  It is in an area that the mutts cannot go due to the electric fence.  At first, I thought it was injured because it didn't run away when I discovered it.  I was hoping that Chubbie, the expert huntress, had not gotten a hold of her.

Later, when I went out it was gone, thankfully.  Hope it finds a "safe" spot down in the woods, away from the criminal element in our yard.  Hubs was doing some yard work last weekend and said he had found some dead animals.  I didn't wish to know more.

Also, Cad was chasing a flying bug this morning and actually swallowed it.  I hope it wasn't a BEE!! ::bee:: ::bee::

LOL about Cad. Brandi chases and catches all sorts of bugs. We just look at each other and say, "extra protein!"

And I have had to tell her, "No!" when a bee flies near her. She actually minds me on that. So I hear your concern about it having been a bee!

Thanks everyone -- Brandi, you know where to look for pictures of Belle at school (I think).  She is learning her down/stay.
Miss her so much, but will be delighted when she graduates.
 ::germanshep::

I have been peeking in on everyone.  4Donks you remain in my prayers, Benji, and Sister, too.  I could not remain on the internet on my old computer.  Got a new one with Windows 8.  I am having so much trouble!!!  I keep getting booted and cannot stay on the internet!  Letters keep shrinking, I keep seeing the desktop, all kinds of stuff.  You are all in my prayers.  I am happy for you TBM.  Also, I had my Dad moved to another room.

 ::MonkeyHeart::



Bearly  - Windows8 can be confusing.  If you click on the icon that says DESKTOP (marked with the red arrow) you will get a screen that looks more like what your desktop used to look like.   ::MonkeyCool::

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a306/klaasend/Windows8_zps31ac409c.jpg)

The desktop keeps popping up.  On the bottom right hand side, if your cursor hits it instead of the arrow, even if it just sits above it, it will switch to desktop from the internet.  Also things shrink and get bigger constantly.   I have to keep setting it back to 100% to see it.  It is a pain!

I've had a problem signing into the site but apparently can do it with the desk top computer not the laptop or phone.

I told Green Eyes about my run in with the weight police, they are upset because I lost 7 1/2 lbs. this week. I have been told to eat 2500 calories a day  ::piggy:: and they don't care if it's a balanced diet...they want calories.  She suggested some of you could give me some ideas on what to eat. I can't have anything like thin liquids because I aspirate and nothing crunchy or hard because I can't swallow it.....a royal pain I've become.

I do keep all monkeys ( and families ) in need in my prayers.

Cake and those soft cookies they sell at Walmart with the sweet icing!  Bisquick has "Impossible Quiche" that makes it's own crust and you can throw just about anything in it.  Of course, if you are not thinking healthy, Fast Food is probably the quickest way to eat 2500 calories a day easily!

Thanks Sister...I think of you Connie, George and Belle often.

Got weighed today and any loss was negligible.. ::donkey3::
Fancy has claimed the scale as hers and won't let any of the dogs near it. She perches on it like a 5 lb vulture...too cute.
Tomorrow I have chemo drip while they do the radiation..double whammy but that's one more crossed off. ::MonkeyDance::

Love your strength!  Glad to hear about the weight and also to hear one more is crossed off.  Fancy cracks me up.  You are in my prayers.

Hi friends..
Hubs, Molly and I are at the lake in the Ozarks.
We had to put Benji down on Monday. He had a cancerous tumor near his heart. We knew something was not right for the last fe months and we were right. Sad but it was time and I know that we were doing the  right thing so tht makes it easier.

4 Donks....positive vibes coming your way.
Sister, so happy to see Belle's video of her successful training...way to go Belle!
Brandi, loved your artwork for JSM and CC 's little nephews...such a sad occasion made so beautiful by you. You are a sweetheart...

Happy birthday Green Eyes and Babs.
Good thoughts to all my monkey friends...you fill a lot of hours for me!

Oh, my heart is with you, Cookie!  You are right about Brandi's drawings.  I was just ready to post about them when JSM called me on the phone and then my mind went elsewhere.  Thanks for the reminder.

Hi ::HelloKitty::  Son went back home on Tuesday. I was very sad to see him leave. The house is so quiet without him and his fur babies Buddy & Elvis. It was wonderful that he was able to stay with us a month. He almost decided to move here. But wasn't  sure he was ready to leave all his friends. ::MonkeyWink::

Post by: Bearlyhere on May 26, 2013, 04:32:28 AM
Good morning everyone!
 ::HelloKitty::

Has anyone heard from Trimm lately?  Really miss her and hope all is well.

Green Eyes, I know what you mean about a quiet house.  Moved George back to my little house and he cried because he was "home."  Still need some more work done from the hurricane damage, but nothing the workers can't do with him there.  Now the house is quiet.  Truthfully, I love it.  I am glad he could stay here and it will mean more work for me to drive to where he is, but at least I am not listening throughout the night for his coughing and having so many people coming and going.  I've just had to hand this over to the Lord to watch over him.

It's one more week and Belle should graduate.  I have missed her something terrible.  The latest picture shows her in a down/stay with a cat sitting right there.  Dear me, what a pleasure it will be to have a stress-free dog.  George grew to love her and wants "visitation rights."  That's so funny.   ::germanshep::

4 Donks, I keep praying for your strength and courage.  I got kinda tickled in my prayers last night.  I asked God to take some of my fat and give it to you.  I burst out laughing.  Thank goodness our God has a wonderful sense of humor and He knew I meant no disrespect.  So funny about Fancy guarding the scales.

Cookie, I am so sorry about Benji.  I know how painful such decisions are, but I am mighty glad you have Molly dog and that she has become such a good puppy.  Have a relaxing time in the Ozarks.  How long are you staying?  I really need to get away for a few days and am thinking about going to the mountains myself.  Deep Creek Lake is driveable so I may do that.  Can't decide whether to take Connie or not.  Being a bit selfish I know.

Babybear, good to see you again.  Glad everything is ok.

TBM, yes it is so sad about the folks in Moore, Oklahoma and the surrounding areas.  Hurricanes like we have are bad, but at least we usually get a lot of warning.  I think if I lived there I would have to have one of those below ground cellars.  But folks do the best they can and my heart is aching for them.

Brandi, how is Brandi?  Did I thank you for all the hard work on the video of Belle?  Thank you.  You're the bestest!

JSM and CC, I know this is a sad time in your life.  I feel your pain.  When I was a young woman they didn't allow for mothers to see the babies or have funerals.  So I wait for the day when God will introduce me to my two children I never saw.  They were born at different times, but I named them Abigail and Josiah.  You and your sister are in my prayers as well.

Babs, happy belated birthday!  Hope it was a yummy one!

Muffy   ::bee::  thanks for all you do.

Well, time for another cup of coffee.  If I missed anyone, I apologize.

Blessings to all.



Sister, you and your extended family are in my prayers.  What beautiful names you picked for your angels.  You are not being one bit selfish, but I know why you are saying that.  You need to keep yourself up or you can't help anyone else.  I just got a good talking to by my own doctor.  He would have made you take some time off, alone if you can.  In my case, I decided to obey orders then got calls days in a row that my parents needed this or that.  Good grief, I am going to get yelled at again! Please, do it for me!

Muffy  ::bee:: is the greatest, she is everywhere and certainly a guardian angel for the Monkeys!

Cookie, I hope you are relaxing, but can't imagine that with Molly.

Thinking of all of you Monkeys and praying hard for 4 Donks.  It is such a pleasure to know such strong women.

 ::MonkeyHeart::

I had put our name in to get a King Charles Cavalier puppy a few weeks ago, thinking we would have 3 dogs for awhile but now it will be 2. I really do not want another puppy but I am planning on Molly being a big help with this one. She will play with her and be her playmate so it probably won't be as bad as Molly was. She is the best dog ever now! We love her madly.
Puppy won't be joining us until about July 11th which will be great as I have a few vacations planned before that time...not looking forward to puppy days again.
Her name is going to be Ruby...for now...will decide when I meet her.

Oh, Ruby, don't take your love to town! What a beautiful name, I am sure CC will agree!  A new puppy!  You know what to do now for sure.  Remember when you thought Molly would have to go back and now she is a treasure, you will do just fine.

Have wonderful vacations!  You better relax during them, you will need your strength and patience.

I know you can not wait to get her home!!

Just want to tell you how much I love hearing you talk about the Criminal. LOL

You make me laugh all the time!


 ::MonkeyHaHa::
How sweet of you to acknowledge me and the Criminal!

We have discovered her "hair"  in a spot on the foyer rug where she is not allowed to be.
She obviously lays there while we are gone for the day .

I need to learn how to post pics of her - she is so pretty - but looks are deceiving.


I think she was framed!

Plans have changed about our new puppy.
I was lucky to find a King Charles Cavalier female who is 4 1/2 months old. She is crte trained and getting the house training. I am driving to get her on Wednesday...we are excited and I am delighted to be getting one who is still a pup but older. She and Molly will make fast friends and playmates. Not saying it will be easy, but a King Charles is probably not as active as a lab puppyis..I am counting on that anyways.

THx all for your kind words to me and to each other. What a cool group of friends we have here..

Sounds ideal, Cookie!

I must admit I have never heard of that breed until now.

I looked up some images and they are adorable!

Here's one from wikipedia:

Thx Brandi.
That is almost exactly what she looks like. She looks very sweet from her photos. Actually I will have 3 to choose from once I get there. One is 6 months old. 2 are 4 1/2 months old. The breeder was going to show them or possibly breed them and has changed her mind. Pictures to follow once I get her. 5 hr drive each way to get her.

I am driving to get her on Wednesday...we are excited and I am delighted to be getting one who is still a pup but older. She and Molly will make fast friends and playmates. Not saying it will be easy, but a King Charles is probably not as active as a lab puppyis..I am counting on that anyways.

THx all for your kind words to me and to each other. What a cool group of friends we have here..
Kiss kisses


I think that is a good idea.  Congratulations!  How did you find out about her?


Questions answered in a later post.

Sounds ideal, Cookie!

I must admit I have never heard of that breed until now.

I looked up some images and they are adorable!

Here's one from wikipedia:

Congrats on your decision and I want pictures when you get a chance!

I think they are the cutest dogs.  I am already in love!

Thx Brandi.
That is almost exactly what she looks like. She looks very sweet from her photos. Actually I will have 3 to choose from once I get there. One is 6 months old. 2 are 4 1/2 months old. The breeder was going to show them or possibly breed them and has changed her mind. Pictures to follow once I get her. 5 hr drive each way to get her.

Oh, I would just love one.  Can you sneak one home for me?

Klaas, I am figuring this out little by little.  The letters changing size had to do with the sensitivity to the palm of my hand (Palm Check), I had to move it almost all the way to the right, the one before last, at the beginning of the red zone, and also the (Pinch Zoom) motion to make the screen bigger and smaller (I had to turn that one off).  These were both under 'Pointing.'  

The constant changing of screens and clicking on other things by accident had to do with the palm of my hand  (Palm Check) and the edges being enabled, it made the programs and things on the edges constantly appear and disappear.  For this, I had to unclick the 'Enable Tap Zones.'  I also adjusted the 'Sensitivity,' this would be an individual choice, whether you need it to be easier or harder to click or change screens.  The sensitivity that was more of a problem for me was to the palm of my hand (Palm Check).  I also made it glide a little so it was not so hard to get the pointer from one side to the other (Momentum).  

I had to 'Enable Edge Swipes' or I could not get the Start Screen back.  I don't like this, because when you get to the end of something all kinds of screens jump up or over at you.  If it must be turned on, making it less sensitive to my palm really made the difference between small screens popping up and getting in the way, and the whole thing coming on and trying to find the original screen I was on.  Sometimes you are on a screen that you cannot click out of (x-off).  I wonder why they put it on the right instead of the left?  

All the big issues so far had to do with the touch pad and the way it is organized.  Some things I can change, others I can't.  I am adjusting it little by little.  It sure has a lot of things to adjust for one touch pad.

I also don't like the user change and the shut down menu in the upper right corner.  It was better when it all originated from the same place.  I think it is easier to use the 'Desktop Assist' than to use the 'Start' Menu on the wrong side of the keyboard.  Not everything originates from there.  The 'Desktop Assist' is not better than having it all in one place, it is just better than the way the menu on the right side is organized, where the start menu is right in the middle of everything else.   The Start Screen is too active to find anything.  I don't think it is as well organized as it was before.  It's like someone took the other Windows screens, placed them on a computer screen and then turned a fan on high and blew them all around and wherever they landed, that's where they stayed; or maybe they tossed them into a Windows snow globe and each flake was a different program, command, game, etc. and they handed it to a bunch of Kindergarteners and had them take turns shaking it during recess, like back in the day, we used to turn cream into butter.

You have to go in Control Panel--Hardware and Sound--Devices and Printers--Mouse--Device Settings--Click on Synaptics for the above.  It took me forever to find it, but I did.  There were small pieces of information everywhere.  One place this screen was not, it was not under any other place that the touch pad or mouse showed up.  It did not show up under help and luckily, I did not have to disable a whole series of things, which other places told you to do.  It was locked in the storm cellar of the computer.

Since I am laying down when I am on the computer, my settings could be different than others, but the settings I have adjusted would make it easier for anyone, especially if they had a disability.  If they didn't, adjusting to your body's comfort zone, still makes a lot of sense, and would make it easier on your body.  I am not in the zone yet, but I am getting there.

I wonder if there is a sensitivity to the keyboard, too.  I am pounding on letters and they still don't all appear.  I will find that now.

I didn't mean to write a book!

Added detail.

I found a little brown bunny rabbit in the bushes/shrubs in my backyard this morning.  It is in an area that the mutts cannot go due to the electric fence.  At first, I thought it was injured because it didn't run away when I discovered it.  I was hoping that Chubbie, the expert huntress, had not gotten a hold of her.

Later, when I went out it was gone, thankfully.  Hope it finds a "safe" spot down in the woods, away from the criminal element in our yard.  Hubs was doing some yard work last weekend and said he had found some dead animals.  I didn't wish to know more.

Also, Cad was chasing a flying bug this morning and actually swallowed it.  I hope it wasn't a BEE!! ::bee:: ::bee::
I saw a frog gulp a lightning bug and its throat was blinking and glowing.  Poor lightning bug!  Happy frog.

 ::monkeyflag3::

It is just a regular computer, now there is Windows 8 and I was having all kinds of trouble with screens changing, print getting larger and smaller, clicking on apps I didn't want, etc.  These were common problems, that's why I put them on there.  I had asked Klaas what to do.  I had to go all over and get the information and some of it is not good and has you disabling too many things.  I put it there to have it all in one place.  In the middle, those are the screens to help you get there and when you are there, you will see the screens I am talking about.

I would much rather have my XP back.  It was user friendly.  When I got my new computer, it came with 6.  I liked the Vista too.  Newer is not necessarily better, said this old fuddy duddy.

I am safe and sound. Several tornadoes around - one of which was a mile from our restaurant! Kids freaked out but all in one piece! Strange thing is that the one by us followed a close track to the 1953 Beecher tornado. Thinking I would not want a house in that area . . . . (well, knowing the area I would not anyway but the tornado makes it worse!)

We are thankful there were only minor injuries reported at this time. Here is a link to the story by us.

More semi good news. I only lost 1 lb. this week and they were all so excited about my voice they didn't have the heart to rant about it. All I got was gentle scowls.  ::MonkeyTongue::
Today I'm going to look at quanset buildings (28x40) so my tractors can be stored in one place. Always something to do and my sister will be with me because today is the double treatment.

Please take care and stay safe.

Little does miss Lilly know she is about to be known all over the country!!

She is precious-!

So Chubbie just ate dinner and is passed out in the kitchen floor ( digesting her scant cup).

The Criminal is at my feet - she hasn't eaten since yesterday.

Thanks Brandi for introducing Lilly.
She went to the vet today and she weighs 8 lbs. she is just the sweetest dog so far.
She and Molly like each other.
Hubs got to see her for the first time this evening and he adores her. His flight from Florida to Chicago got cancelled last night due to the weather. Made it home today.
The weather had been crazy lately all over. Hope everyone is safe!

Sister,

Great video of Belle! And a very long one too. LOL

I managed to make this animated gif out of a section of the video.

I made one avatar sized in case you wanted it, and one a little larger. Photobucket would not accept the larger one, so I uploaded it to my comcast account. (These gifs become very big files.)

She is doing remarkably well! It looks like she loves having work to do.

Cookie, you have your hands full with a new puppy!

GE-- you always keep us in line over here- where are JSM  And CC? ::lookie:: ::lookie:: ::lookie::

So, I got a Chubbie story for y'all-

She is on a diet getting her scant cup in the morning and the evening.  After she eats, she licks the Criminal's bowl looking for scraps.  But the Criminal doesn't chew her food, she swallows it whole bites, another is nothing left in seconds.  So... Chubbie, the hunter, has decided that she can find/hunt her own food and has taken to the woods to kill/eat birds on the back porch!!! ::MonkeyShocked::

So, how can I put her on a diet, if she is out finding her own food????

Silly mutt- ya she from the hills of West  Virginia!

I did a lot of research on the training methods, etc.  He was the closest.  It isn't close, but Belle is worth the 9 hour drive.

I am glad you will get trained too, I am sure that is very important.

I doubt Belle will need much discipline after all this time being trained. She appears to have mastered everything she has been taught. And she seems to like it as well.

Cookie, they are on Facebook and on the web.  Solid K-9 training is the name. They take all kinds of dogs.  Some dogs just need a couple of days as they don't have to un-learn as much as say Belle who is about 2 years old and though I don't know her background, have concluded she was a watch dog allowed to roam free.  If you decide to check them out, they have lots of videos for different issues, like leash walking, learning down/stay, etc.  It was Jeff's philosophy that appealed to me the most.  They do "real world" training and want the dogs to have a stress-free life as well as the owners.  Belle had me so stressed I wondered if I had made the right decision getting a dog and it was breaking my heart.  But I believed she (and me) deserved the chance to live a good life.  I am so glad I found Jeff and his training.  He gives so much back, goes into NYC and works with shelters, fosters dogs to get them adoptable, etc.
How is beautiful Lilly doing?  Did I tell you I am greeeeeeen with envy, so happy you have her.  I truly think she is one of the most beautiful dogs in the whole wide world!

If the persons has to sit in the wheel chair the whole time, you will need a wheelchair van.
If the person can transfer to a car seat, there are several ways.  Let me know and I'll let you know tonight how I transfer and transport George.

Does anyone have to transport a family member who needs a wheelchair and how do you do it?  Thanks.




My Mom used a simple manual wheel chair carrier that mounted on the back of her car while when my late father was wheel chair bound.  He was able to swing his legs out of the car and she helped him into the wheel chair.  Later on, he grew too weak to do this and the family chipped in and we found a good used van adapted for wheel chair use.  I'm not too sure which model she had or what brand, but here are some links. There are very simple tote models (which are great back savers & not so expensive) on up to fancier versions.

Hitch Mounted Carriers:

http://www.a1-medical-supplies.net/lifts-for-outside-of-car/

http://www.wheelchaircarrier.com/  She used a low cost tote carrier like Tilt N Tote Model 001.  You can see photos of it without the chair.

Keep the bird warm and protected in an incubator or a cardboard box. Poke holes in the box for ventilation and cut out a hole to attach the red light bulb. Affix a thermometer and keep temperature between 86 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the box or incubator with towels.

Prepare cat or dog food or whole grain bread by soaking it in water and mash until it is the consistency of ketchup. Alternately, buy canary rearing milk from an animal supply store. Place food in a syringe.

After the 25th treatment they do another CAT scan and restage for the last treatments...there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Good morning Monkeys!

4Donks - I admire your spirit and endurance.  Continued prayers. 

JSM - Your sister and her babies are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sister-  Safe and happy travels home with Belle. 

Cookie - Lilly is adoreable.

Bearly - caregiver prayers.

Baby Bear - Good to see you back!  A long time ago I recall a post from you saying that wonderful things were happening in your life (or something close to that)...then a long absence.  Recalling you liked to travel, I imagined you had found your Shangri-la/Camelot.  Take care.

Back from Texas. Lilly flew on the airplane with me. She went under the seat in her travel crate? She did not let out a peep either on the plane, the hotel or the car rides? Hubs and I jut look at each other and say, is this puppy for real? She is truly the best puppy ever! After all that we went thru with Maniac Molly, we are so thrilled! Lilly is so calm and good natured.
She and  Molly love each other and play and love each other.

Glad everyone Is doing ok.

Hi Brandi ::HelloKitty:: 

It is very quiet for sure. I have read just haven't said much. I think having teenagers around and their drama has worn me out. ::MonkeyHaHa::

How is your neighbor doing? Think about you & him daily you guys are in my prayers. The family I grew up with since I was 5 and they became second parents and their sons became like brothers to me. Just had to place the mom in a facility for Alzheimer's/ Dementia  Just has broken everybody's hearts. She only has 20% of her cognitive ability left and has turned violent to her husband and youngest son.  ::MonkeyTears::

Turned out well for him, although he isn't so sure of that. His sister who lives down at the beach (~1 hour drive away) opened up her home to him. He went there when he was released from the hospital. He has his own big room and bathroom and lives with her and her husband. He keeps saying he is "coming home" because up here is where he lives and his doctor gave him a clean bill of health. (That cannot be true.) I am still paying his bills for him and trying to sell his truck. I believe his truck will be sold this weekend. Have someone coming to see it on Saturday. We got some of his household accounts closed (phone and cable.) Just need to get the truck sold so he has no more insurance bills and need to get his home sold. We have left the power on for now, which is another bill, but I am hoping it will be the minimum this month. He needs the money, as he is living on Social Security. He has clear moments as well as very mixed up moments, which is normal for dementia.

Want to get his truck sold before he changes his mind. He will no longer be able to drive, although sometimes he thinks he will. So it's a delicate situation, as he changes his mind about everything all the time.

So sorry to hear about the mom's experience with dementia. It's a nasty progressive disease, for sure.

Teenagers? I don't envy you. LOL

Thanks for your post ;-)

Hi all.
Brandi...u r so sweet for looking out for your elderly neighbor. We need more people to do that for our neighbors.

I have been really busy with the grand daughters since school is out. I have been tired this week since traveling to Texas and back. Don't know how my hubs travels so much . Makes me appreciate him all the more.
I fly to Yakima Washington next Friday to surprise my mom on her 80th birthday. Then I am home for a few days and then we head down to the lake for a 9 day vacation with all our kids and grand kids. We will b worn out by the time we are done with that! But, we are lucky that we get to go.

I am O'Hare airport right now waiting for hubs to fly in ...

Post by: Brandi on June 13, 2013, 09:07:42 PM
Well, I was in the process of shutting down my computer when we lost power. I didn't accomplish my goal. LOL A huge tree up at the main road (our power lines are buried where we live) blew down all the way across the road, blocking it in both directions for hours!

We lost power for 6 full hours while they took care of the tree and fixed the above ground wires up there.

So lucky we did not get the hail they were saying we were going to get. I went out on the deck and the yard and covered the glass top tables and just hoped the hail would not damage our car. (No garage.) But all was fine.

Didn't notice the real high winds (70+ mph) they were also calling for. The ground is saturated from our last downpour a few days ago, so again, good we did not get that high of winds here at our house.

We listened to a radio during the power outage and there were reports of trees down and power outages all over.

So all in all, a 6 hour power outage is all we had to deal with, so we lucked out. ;-)

Thanks for all your concern!

You're welcome, GE.  The large storms that have been sweeping our nation have been fearsome.  I hope we hear from Sister later today.

Brandi - I am so glad the storms were not all they were supposed to be. Power loss is a small price compared to some of the things we have seen lately! Happy to hear you are safe.

Thank you TBM. I appreciate it.

I had a doctor's app't (just a checkup and blood work) today at 8. I am not a morning person. LOL

But I drove past where the tree came down across the highway. It was not just one tree. It looked like a tornado had come through that area. It was a mess. And the wires looked to be just put together to let the power through. They were sagging and I saw some that had loose ends. The power people were there, closing one lane and had about 7 trucks with workers getting out and suiting up. I think they have a lot of work to do to get that section of lines fixed.

Thinking we may lose power for a bit today while they are working on it. We'll see.

I see NC also got hit pretty hard.

Nasty storms. And it isn't even summer yet!

Good morning Monkeys!

4Donks - I admire your spirit and endurance.  Continued prayers. 

JSM - Your sister and her babies are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sister-  Safe and happy travels home with Belle. 

Cookie - Lilly is adoreable.

Bearly - caregiver prayers.

Baby Bear - Good to see you back!  A long time ago I recall a post from you saying that wonderful things were happening in your life (or something close to that)...then a long absence.  Recalling you liked to travel, I imagined you had found your Shangri-la/Camelot.  Take care.

GE - Hi.   :smt054

All the best to all the Monkeys!

Another update.... ::MonkeyCheer4::

They did my CAT scan and staging early and I will be officially done.......July 2nd.

So looking forward to everything going back to normal. It takes 2-4 weeks after the last radiation and chemo to get rid of the side effects. Happy Dance  ::donkey3:: ::donkey3:: ::donkey3::

Hi all.
Brandi...u r so sweet for looking out for your elderly neighbor. We need more people to do that for our neighbors.

I have been really busy with the grand daughters since school is out. I have been tired this week since traveling to Texas and back. Don't know how my hubs travels so much . Makes me appreciate him all the more.
I fly to Yakima Washington next Friday to surprise my mom on her 80th birthday. Then I am home for a few days and then we head down to the lake for a 9 day vacation with all our kids and grand kids. We will b worn out by the time we are done with that! But, we are lucky that we get to go.

I am O'Hare airport right now waiting for hubs to fly in ...

Happy birthday to your Mom cookie!   ::monkeywine2::

Afternoon Monkeys ::HelloKitty::

Can so good to see you. Hope the family matters are getting worked out.

Brandi glad to hear they had crews out fixing the power lines. I am not a morning person either. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Cookie sounds like you have a full schedule ahead of you. Youngest brother lives in Yakima. I laughed every time we drove pass the sign in Yakima that said " The Palm Springs of Washington "

TBM  How are you and the family doing?

4Donks continued prayers ::MonkeyAngel::

Sister hope you had a save trip back with Belle.

Muffy ::bee:: Hope you are staying cool. We hit 102 here yesterday. ::MonkeyNoNo::

I am finally back.  Yesterday was hell driving in all that rain and wind from Provience RI.
Belle is home and already she is testing to see if the new rules apply to home.  At the moment she is in a down/stay in my study.  I have to meet tonight with a family whose mother died the first of the week.  Funeral is tomorrow.
Am so excited to have Belle home.  Other than shedding, she looks great.  So much to tell, maybe later tonight or tomorrow.
Everyone there loved her and said she is very smart.  Now all I have to do is let her know I am in charge and not her . . . can't tell you how wonderful it is to have her home.
She got sick in the car yesterday and again this morning.  So I just fed her a little when we got home.

4 Donks, so glad you are on the downhill slide of that ole mountain.

Happy everyone made it through the storms all right.

Later.
Blessings.

Hi to all the monkeys. 

GE -hope you and your famiy are well.  yes things are getting worked out.  my mom finally received a place for her husband in a long term care facility.  it's been a very stressful process for all.  her visits upset them both.
my daughter came in from out of town and stayed with her last weekend and took her to see him.  she removed my mom in about ten minutes.  the head nurse told my mom, 'dear, you must go and rest now, and do not worry or have guilt, you have done all you can and you need to rest now.
one day at a time.

sister - how are you and belle doing?  also connie and geo.

Can I understand how had it is to place a loved one in a long term care facility.  I am glad you finely got him in one. All you can do is give your mom support and tell her she has done everything she could. Prayers for you all. Enjoy your time with your mom. ::MonkeyAngel::

I had made several very similar ones a while back, but had not saved them before we lost power and I lost all the work!

I thought Belle looked so cute holding her diploma, I went ahead and redid them from scratch.

I am glad you think they are cute ;-)

Monkeys I am so upset at some of the parents around here. One of the young ladies that lives at down the road. Is being sent to live with her grandmother to take care of her. Which I can understand to a point. She gave up her room to her step dads mom. Then her mom tells her you are going to go live with Grandma to take care of her as the  daughter living with her just got tried and walked out. This young lady doesn't have a license to take the grandmother to the doctor or to get groceries for them. She has raised her 4 younger sibs as mom sits on her fat azz. She has been saving money to go to college next fall. Her mom told her we need money etc. So she gave her mom most of her graduation money. She is such a sweet gal. Why doesn't the mom go take care of her mother. But NO Ashley as to do it and give up her plans. She was so sad today she came down to spend the night with granddaughter and mom called her and told her get home we are taking you tonight not tomorrow as planned. Okay done with my rant.

Just plain unfair to Ashley. After the age of 18, she should be able to do as she wishes and needs to do for herself. It is her time to prepare for her future. IMO.

Your right Cadillac and Brandi. The parents are selfish. Not that she shouldn't help with her grandmother. But to just tell her to pack her clothes and stuff and you are going. Is just wrong. I am hoping and praying the move out of her home will end up a good thing for her.  And her grandmother will encourage her to follow her dream and at least start college part time while she is living with her.

I hope the time comes when Ashley will come of age and strike off on her own.  I believe children and teens should help around the house but it looks like Ashley is just short of being an indentured servant.  I hope she stays a sweet gal, but I also hope she realizes as she matures that she doesn't have to be under her Mom's thumb.  I hope she can find happiness in life, and I hope her Mom doesn't keep sucking at any money she earns in the future.  JMHO

Never a good one either.  Cad doesn't get to come often.  She is too unpredictable.  Ran in circles one time inside and then SMACK head on into the glass door! ::MonkeyShocked::

Here's one for you Cadillac  This made me think of your fur babies.  ::MonkeyHaHa::  It seems daughters & granddaughters pups had a little something extra today. When daughter took a break from work they got up on her desk and got about five keys off her keyboard.  ::MonkeyEek:: I don't know if they ate them or just got them off and chewed them up.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

Hi GE!

Too funny about the keyboard pups.  Sometimes they can be so mischievous.

A long time ago, hubs dropped his cell phone in the drive when he got out of the car.  He didn't miss it immediately.  Then he remembered he had it in the car, so started retracing his steps.

Found the sim(?) card in the yard, and a remnant of what used to be the phone.

That's Cadillac for you.

One of the kids said call it and see if she rings.

Good morning friends,
 ::HelloKitty::
Am feeling better, getting out of my pity party slump.  Getting back to knowing I have to rely on myself again (after almost 8 years with Dennis).  I know I can do it, but I have come kicking and silently screaming.  Pretty much over the kicking part and am looking "forward" to new things I can do now that I am "free."
Going away on a little mini-vacation Sunday and taking Connie.  Putting Belle and Jenkins in the kennel so they will be fine.  Had used this kennel for Nordie so I know they are great.  Not going far, just far enough.
Haven't been posting much as when I am hurt or sad, I tend to retreat into silence.  But know I pray for all of you every day, sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night -- but every day you remain close to my heart and the ears of God.
Taking Connie to get her hair done today.  She is so excited about our little trip.  Hasn't been anywhere since we went to Pennsylvania.  It feels good to make her happy.
Have a great day.
Blessings.

Good to hear from you, Sister!

Have fun on your mini trip with Connie.  I'm glad she is appreciative of the little (and big) things you do for her.

Our kennel gives report cards!  It is fun to see them when we pick up the mutts. It gives them grades- A B - etc.  lists their friends that they played with and tells if they had to sit in doggie time out!  Ha ha - they love Cad, or so they say. I'm sure they appreciate the business actually, even cadillac's.

Have a good time, and take time for you.

Blessings this morning to the other monkeys- and 4D - I have been thinking about you!!!

Klaas the salsa looks good. While son was here he made some salsa his friends mom had showed him how to make. The grand kids and son and daughter ate it. I tasted it  ::MonkeyHaHa:: It was good but way to hot for me. Back in the days I could have handled it. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Sister I hope you and Connie are having a good time on your mini trip.

4Donks YES your treatments will be done next week ::MonkeyDance::

 ::HelloKitty:: to all the monkeys.

Youngest grand son came to spend the night with us last night. We ended up staying up all night. We were at the store about 7:30 this morning and then went and got his fire works. Then got everything home and made some cinnamon stick thingy's.

As soon as he sat down and was quiet for 5 minutes he passed out.  Waiting for his mom to come get him.
So I can take a nap. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Hope everyone's staying cool with all the heat.

That's great Muffy ::bee::  We got a few sprinkles here. The road was wet when we left this morning to go do errands. When we got to the store which is about 4 miles east of us. They had lots more rain as there were puddles in the streets. Got a picture of a rainbow over WalMart when we got there. I will take any amount of rain we need it for sure.  When we moved here hubs talked about putting in tanks to hold rain water. But his health has gotten to where he can't do much any more. So no tanks.

Thanks for responding klaas, I was hoping she wasn't sick or something and I missed it.  Shows you how much I pay attention, I didn't notice until today.  She is such a sweetheart and we love her so much!

I must tell you that an age spread can work out very well. My husband is 13 years younger than I and we couldn't be happier. Been together since 1997 (in a long distance relationship until 1999) and got married in 2001.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday yesterday.

It's the first 4th of July where we did not have a cookout with Ray. (The next door neighbor who is now living with his sister, diagnosed with dementia recently.)

Hubby and I started up tennis again and went to the courts to practice. There's a backboard there and I find that is the best way for me to practice. I used to play every day for many years. Haven't played for about 15 years and found out that it's not so easy to just pick up where I left off. LOL My forearm muscle is weak! And my footwork abilities have gotten very rusty. I took a fall running back for a high return and scraped my shin on the surface, so now I am a bit gun-shy about running. I realized I haven't run in a long time, nor moved fast. heh

We bought a medicine ball to start getting more flexible and stronger. Gonna try to do a couple exercises with it every evening outside.

Babysteps, my husband says. He thinks I'll get back to being a good tennis player eventually. Boy, my advice is don't get old, and if you cannot do that, do not stop an activity that you love, just keep doing it!

Good afternoon,
 ::HelloKitty::
Well, I had a nice 4th.   ::monkeyflag3::
Dennis invited Connie and I to his house for a cookout.  That was so very kind of him.  Took Belle with me (love me, love my dog).   ::germanshep::
I guess since I got Belle, we had never ridden with the windows down.  She was so funny -- guess she never had that experience before.  I watched her in my side mirror.  She stuck her nose out, just a little, bring it back in, little again, back in, little farther, back in.  It probably took her a full 10 minutes to get her precious head in the wind -- boy, did she love it.  She is just too adorable.
Cookie, how are you making out with your new puppy?   ::dogwag::
Babybear, wonderful to hear your good news.  Dennis wants us to give our relationship another try.   :smt054

Hi Sister!

Oh, another try with Dennis? Cool!

I bet Belle loved her ride.

But I can't in good conscience not mention how dangerous it is for dogs to hang their heads out the window. Their eyes are the most susceptible to flying debris. The same debris that leaves little chips on the paint and in the windshield. They make goggles, called Doggles (http://www.amazon.com/Doggles-Small-Chrome-Frame-Smoke/dp/B0001VJDH4/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top)  to help protect dog's eyes. But then even with those, the dogs are susceptible to ear injuries when the wind is flapping them. Not to mention the possibility of the dog jumping or falling (with a quick stop) out of the window at fast speeds.

Don't mean to come off sounding stuffy, just felt the need to share those concerns. Dogs love all the new smells they get bombarded with when the window is open, but they can enjoy them with the window cracked, open enough to enjoy but not enough to stick their head out.

Glad you had a great Fourth of July and that you are enjoying Belle once again!

Good morning Monkeys!

4Donks - I admire your spirit and endurance.  Continued prayers. 

JSM - Your sister and her babies are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sister-  Safe and happy travels home with Belle. 

Cookie - Lilly is adoreable.

Bearly - caregiver prayers.

Baby Bear - Good to see you back!  A long time ago I recall a post from you saying that wonderful things were happening in your life (or something close to that)...then a long absence.  Recalling you liked to travel, I imagined you had found your Shangri-la/Camelot.  Take care.

GE - Hi.   :smt054

Hi everybody--I hope everyone is well and I just read that 4Donks had her last treatment.

I didn't want to mention this when people were going through such a hard time, but I will tell you why I had this exciting thing going on in my life.  I have a boyfriend who is 10 years younger than I, is 6'3" and works out almost every day.  For some reason he thinks I'm great.  I am indeed a lucky woman.

Happy Fourth.

Here's a set of handcuffs if you like:  (http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/JSM-Chat/handcuffs.png~original)



I am being misunderstood all over the place, maybe that shot did more harm than I thought.  I am not trying to hurt honest monkeys.  In fact, the suggestion I made was to do just the opposite.

It was hard for me to get used to at first, Brandi, but if you look around, we live in Monkey-land here and all of the important props are Monkeys.  For example, monkeys get popped out of jack-in-the-boxes, poke each others with sticks, stick their tongues out at each other, and other things.  All monkeys are not good, we have had some doozies that have passed through here.  I thought they represented the outside world, too, not just those who live/have lived in the cage.

The reason I suggested it was because I noticed a lot of people using the hanging Monkey, I thought a perp-walk was better than a hanging.  Hangings, to me, have the connotation of conviction without a fair trial and can have other connotations to other people.  Every time I see it, it makes me flinch.

To another Monkey, I merely said, "I think we need a pair of handcuffs/a handcuffed perp, either one."  The other person responded, they liked the idea of a "perp monkey."  I then asked you if you could do it, hoping to see the handcuffed perp as a less-lethal choice.  I did not talk to the other person about hangings vs. cuffed, that is something I battle with in my own head.

So, to clarify, we live in a monkey world and the emoticons seen here, except if they represent a particular person--like Joran, etc. represent some generic Monkey/person and that is all I was asking for, not a bunch of innocent monkeys getting hurt or some monkey erotica.

Sounds great.  They recommended using a ball for my Mom, but we got something at the under 5 store that worked just as well.

I always wanted to play tennis.  My son played tennis on the Middle School team.  I have 4 brothers and no sisters and played just about every sport you can imagine.  I did take tennis lessons, but there was no one at home to practice with.  They were more into hockey sticks than tennis rackets.

As for getting old, I think I would much rather get old than the opposite choice.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

I am glad you had such a great 4th.  I think giving a relationship another try is wonderful, as long as you are getting what you need and not giving too much of yourself.  There is so little of you left to go around these days with all that is going on in your life. 

I lost my Uncle this week and there is so much truth to the saying of the caretaker going first.  I hope this time Dennis realizes the jewel he has in you and he is someone who will help make you shine.

Best of luck in your relationship and please take care of yourself.  It is always lovely to have someone to share your life with.  I am rooting for you!!!

Cubbie donated blood to the Red Cross this week.  I am so proud of him.  We had to wait a little bit afterwards because he was quite pale.  I think he sat up too quickly afterwards, I should have warned him about that.  The last time the nurse was afraid to have him donate because he could not understand the questions, and she would not let me help him because it is supposed to be confidential.

This time, when they called for me to donate, I explained about my son and asked if I could help him with the questions because he has autism.  The woman on the phone said yes, but I remember how much trouble we had last time and asked her to ask her supervisor to make sure.  She did and everything was set up.  Well, when we got there, I was NOT allowed to help him with the questions.  Apparently the people who call are some people from an ad agency or something like that, and even the supervisor did not belong to the Red Cross.

The nurse said she would try and see what she could do.  She had upset him so much the last time, I think she must have just been new, that he got really scared in the middle of the questions, not understanding what she was saying.  This time, she was much calmer, and we were answering questions next to each other, and if I would hear a question repeated, I would shake my head yes or no and she put the answer in.  She did not do this many times, but some of the diseases they ask you about anyone in your family having, have very confusing names and I have not heard of them before.

I am so proud of him for sticking with it and giving blood!!!  (No pun intended!)

Caddy, I hope you are enjoying Chubby and the Criminal and can't wait to hear more stories.

Babybear, I had a feeling that the little something something you were hiding had to do with romance, and was dying to know.   :smt054

Can, I hope things slow down for you soon, and you can have some time for you and hubby.  How is your family?

Brandi, I enjoy seeing all of your beautiful visions cross the screen.  I really enjoyed you telling Sister's story in pictures.

Cookie, good luck with your beautiful pooches and have fun on all your trips.  What a big family you have.  It's great that you get along!

GE, I hope things aren't getting too warm for you down there and you are having fun with all the family that stops by.

JSM and CC, I hope things ARE getting too warm for you and that's why you can't stop by so often.

Muffy, I miss seeing your face, I mean, hearing your buzz, as much when I come through here.   ::bee::

Babs, how do you manage to keep all the cats hydrated in this weather?  Is the man next door still shooting at them?

We are waiting for some cats to be trapped in a house, there is a vet in New Jersey who is going to take care of them.  They belong to someone's cousin and she has cancer and will not be able to return home to them.   ::MonkeyTears::  She cannot even remember how many she has 3 or 4.  We captured squirrels in our attic, it looks like one Mom and 3 or 4 babies.

TBM, what fun things have the boys been occupied with this summer?  I bet you have tons of wash to do that tells the tales of great summer adventures.

4Donks, you have been on my mind so  much since you have been diagnosed, and each thought contains several prayers.  I am so happy you are finished the nightmare of treatment and am so impressed by the battle you waged.

Sister, I have been worried about you and how many times you have not been feeling well lately.  I am so happy Belle is home where she belongs and that you are getting a little time with your sister when you go away.  I hope you take some time out for yourself.  Like I said, I have been concerned with you and how many times you have not felt well.

Trimmy, I miss the heck out of you and wish I could visit.

Everyone else, please take care in this warm weather and with all the crazy accidents and weather that has been moving through the US and to our friends elsewhere.  Please, be safe!

For our 2 friends who are no longer with us, summer reminds me so very much of you. 
Peaches, I miss your indomitable spirit and your courage, bravery, and love.
2NJ, this weather and walks through the Jersey sand remind me of you and your fight against anyone who would hurt or take advantage of another person.

Take care!
Bearly

I think both of us are being a little misunderstood. LOL

I went through all 443(!) of my monkey guys that I designed and uploaded to my photobucket account and every single one of them (besides one, which is a monkey in a jail cell, saying, "I didn't do it!") has been a positive, happy monkey on the right side of the law. ;-)

Here's one as an example: (http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/MonkeyGuys/Animation3-2.gif~original) with handcuffs!

I appreciate you and Klaas thinking of me as a monkey guy designer, but I'd like to keep the ones I design reflecting the good we as monkeys possess.

I do hate turning down requests, but I believe you will understand my feelings.

Babybear, congrats on your new romance/love life!

I must tell you that an age spread can work out very well. My husband is 13 years younger than I and we couldn't be happier. Been together since 1997 (in a long distance relationship until 1999) and got married in 2001.

Best wishes for your continued happiness!

 ::MonkeyHeart::

That's lovely.  Did you meet on line?

 :smt024



Indeed, we did. We met in the help channel I run on IRC. He came in to see if he could help others and we got to know each other. Neither of us was looking for a relationship, but apparently the cosmos had other plans for us. ;-)

Bearly, thank you so much for thinking of me.  Yes, I have been sick often and I know it is because I am tired.  This last year with the passing of my dear Mother and George getting cancer has taken a toll on me.  When I am tired, I get sick.  Going for a physical in the next couple of weeks --
You are such a dear for thinking of me.

I love on line meeting stories - and agree with Brandi on the age difference. My hubs is 11 years older than me. We lived around the corner from each other after our divorces but met online - neither was looking for a relationship but when we met it was love at first sight. 11 years (almost) later and we could not be happier. Love happy endings for all of us monkeys!

Brandi, is it possible for you to make a handcuffed perp monkey that we can put up with the emoticons, when you have some time?  Please?

 ::MonkeyAngel::

Not sure it would be appropriate to put handcuffs on a monkey!

We're all law-abiding, right? ;-)

Here's a set of handcuffs if you like:  (http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/JSM-Chat/handcuffs.png~original)



I am being misunderstood all over the place, maybe that shot did more harm than I thought.  I am not trying to hurt honest monkeys.  In fact, the suggestion I made was to do just the opposite.

It was hard for me to get used to at first, Brandi, but if you look around, we live in Monkey-land here and all of the important props are Monkeys.  For example, monkeys get popped out of jack-in-the-boxes, poke each others with sticks, stick their tongues out at each other, and other things.  All monkeys are not good, we have had some doozies that have passed through here.  I thought they represented the outside world, too, not just those who live/have lived in the cage.

The reason I suggested it was because I noticed a lot of people using the hanging Monkey, I thought a perp-walk was better than a hanging.  Hangings, to me, have the connotation of conviction without a fair trial and can have other connotations to other people.  Every time I see it, it makes me flinch.

To another Monkey, I merely said, "I think we need a pair of handcuffs/a handcuffed perp, either one."  The other person responded, they liked the idea of a "perp monkey."  I then asked you if you could do it, hoping to see the handcuffed perp as a less-lethal choice.  I did not talk to the other person about hangings vs. cuffed, that is something I battle with in my own head.

So, to clarify, we live in a monkey world and the emoticons seen here, except if they represent a particular person--like Joran, etc. represent some generic Monkey/person and that is all I was asking for, not a bunch of innocent monkeys getting hurt or some monkey erotica.

     ::MonkeyShocked::

I think both of us are being a little misunderstood. LOL

I went through all 443(!) of my monkey guys that I designed and uploaded to my photobucket account and every single one of them (besides one, which is a monkey in a jail cell, saying, "I didn't do it!") has been a positive, happy monkey on the right side of the law. ;-)

Here's one as an example: (http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/MonkeyGuys/Animation3-2.gif~original) with handcuffs!

I appreciate you and Klaas thinking of me as a monkey guy designer, but I'd like to keep the ones I design reflecting the good we as monkeys possess.

I do hate turning down requests, but I believe you will understand my feelings.

I understand you!  You refused to put Olive Oyl on Popeyes arm  :)  I respect your decisions. You are a monkey with a good conscience.  You are fun, and you did not want Brutus to get jealous.

IRC?



IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's real-time internet chat. There are quite a few IRC networks. There are many channels on each network. Channels are like chat rooms. The channel I am in charge of is a help channel. That's where my husband and I met. After all these years, I still run that help channel. And he helps out in it. Helping others keeps us informed and learning new stuff all the time. IRC has lost its wild popularity because of other social sites such as facebook and instant messaging and twitter, but there are still many users and new users joining every day.

Thanks all of you.  I am just enjoying my new life.  I still pinch myself. How did I deserve this man?

What I signed in for specifically is to tell Klaas that I had Bell's Palsy years ago.  My husband was an MD, (He's now my late husband)  he took a look and told me I had Bell's Palsy and took me to a Neurologist, who said, "You have Bell's Palsy." I couldn't close one eye completely and he had me put gauze over it to keep dust out and one side of my face was paralyzed.  It lasted several weeks, it went away, and has never come back.  It is scarey and looks strange, but it does go away on it's own.  I did take B12 tablets for it, but I think that was just so I would think I was doing something.

Best wishes all.

Thanks all of you.  I am just enjoying my new life.  I still pinch myself. How did I deserve this man?

What I signed in for specifically is to tell Klaas that I had Bell's Palsy years ago.  My husband was an MD, (He's now my late husband)  he took a look and told me I had Bell's Palsy and took me to a Neurologist, who said, "You have Bell's Palsy." I couldn't close one eye completely and he had me put gauze over it to keep dust out and one side of my face was paralyzed.  It lasted several weeks, it went away, and has never come back.  It is scarey and looks strange, but it does go away on it's own.  I did take B12 tablets for it, but I think that was just so I would think I was doing something.

Best wishes all.

First off, congrats on your personal life!  Sounds like you are very happy!

We had a friend coincidentally that had Bell's Palsy just a couple months ago so it was really the first thing I thought when I noticed I had some slight paralysis in my face.  I went to the ER just to be safe and they did a CAT scan even though they were pretty sure it was Bell's.  The ER doc prescribed Prednisone and AntiViral meds.  I can't tolerate Prenisone so I only took the AntiViral meds.  After the first day, I actually got a bit worse but after about 48 hours it stopped getting worse.  I'm getting better very slowly.  Just now starting to get my smile back.  My eye can close some and I have some movement in my eyebrow and face (it is my right side).  It's been about 16 days and I do think that I should be mostly all better in the next couple weeks (crossing fingers) at the rate I'm going. 

Glad you got over yours with flying colors and it didn't come back!  Thanks for telling me about your experience.

Klaas,

My monkey face knows nothing, (but what I do know) is two people I knew had B.P. and they both recovered, it took a little time.

You will be fine - I have faith that the monkeys are praying for you.

I am praying for you, you will recover, I am confident. ::CowboySmiley::

There are some wonderful You tubes.  I have been watching them for days.



Bearlythere,

Is it a virus?  Where does it comes from?  I believe it goes away after a period time.

Thank-you

I recall a customer of mine 9in a clothing store), had the virus, she recovered after a long period of time. The Doctors, told her it would take a year, I believe, in her case, it was accurate.

My beloved, friend, recovered, as well - took a length of time, not sure, exactly, but it was within a year, she is fine now.

I've known 4 people that got it.  2 recovered within about a month, the other two took longer one taking nearly a year for full recovery.  I really expect at the rate I'm getting better that I will be mostly better in a couple weeks from now which will be about a month total.  Some people never fully recover.

Good morning everyone,
 ::HelloKitty::
Hope all is well and hope Brandi doesn't have to pull out the big guns.  That needle is hugggeeeee.

Things with Belle are going good -- still have a lot of reinforcement to do with her.  She is very hard-headed (just like her Momma)!  There will come a day when all of this will "click" with her and that will be wonderful.  Our stress level is so much lesser now and that is a good thing.  She still has a lot of separation anxiety.  I now put her in the kennel when I am gone, but I spend so much of my time home that I can understand why she gets anxious.  She is used to being so close.  She likes her kennel as it is very big -- large enough for her to stand up and turn around, etc.  She often goes in there during the day just to sleep.  Glad I invested in one big enough for a 66 pound dog.

I think I mentioned that Dennis had invited Connie and I to his house for the 4th, which was very kind of him.  After we ate, I took Connie home and I went back.  For the first time in months, we had an opportunity to talk.  Course, I had to initiate the conversation, but so be it.  Anyway, I think we are going to give this relationship another chance.  Like in most breakdowns in relationships, the major problem is communication.  I do a lot of counseling and know this to be a fact.  Money, other people, etc. are not really the issues, communicating about issues is the root of it all.  And it is true, Dennis and I had quit talking -- I was waiting for him to initiate the conversation and he viewed my silence as disinterest.  If this is the way I decide to go, will be taking it slow.  No need to cause each other additional pain if it isn't going to work out (but truth is I broke my crystal ball a long time ago).

George is hanging tough.  Still no pain, which is a blessing and an answer to prayers.  The swelling is however getting worse.  When I was reading about Klaas and her Bells Palsy, they thought at first what was wrong with George.

Connie is much the same.  I just can't get her to "do" anything.  Now that the weather is good, she still won't walk outside, even for a little distance.  She eats ice cream much of the time and won't cook food.  She is just there, waiting for someone to help her.  This is so not like her, she is not trying to get any better and she could.  I just don't know.  I am about 45 minutes away.  Her boys have given up trying to get her to do anything.  It's not a good situation.

Anyway, enough of my belly aching.  Life is good and I am blessed.
 ::germanshep::
Blessings.

Klaas, just caught that you had Bell's palsy. A friend of mine had that and he looked like he had a trove on the one side of his face. It eventually went  away but it was very concerning t the time. He was told that he could  get it back agin but to my knowledge, that has not happened. I had never heard of it until he got it. Now I hear about more and more.
Hope u are on the road o. Quick recovery...xoxo

Still living the life.  JSM is good.  I keep telling her to go onto Monkeys but she ignores me.  Prayers for all monkeys in need. 

Today I had to tke my second furlough day, only 9 left.  Went golfing and JSM got off at 11:30 and joined me.

My annulment is in the works so hopefully I can remarry JSM in the Catholic Church (shudder).   Got some more baby moarning doves on our balconey so might be ready for breakfast in a few days. 

Shout out to Bearly, Green Eyes, Babs, Klaas, retired Muffy, Brandi, Cookie, Sister, Caddy,  4donks, A1, Dolce, Sea Searcher, etc.



Woah!  I was sound asleep and heard someone shouting at me!  Oh...hi back, CC!

This guy did a great video showing the progression of his Bell's Palsy from beginning to when he's almost 100% better.  I'm currently at day 30.   My BP was very similar to his.  I'd say it's a typical case.  Some can be much worse and a few are less severe.

Musta been scary when you first got symptoms, not knowing what was happening.

I had heard of Bell's Palsy, but until you mentioned you had it, I really didn't know much about what it is.

It must be such a relief being on the mend.

My heart goes out to you and what you have had to endure.

Brandi - it's irritating and ugly but it's not permanent and it's not life threatening in any way.  I really can't complain.  From the beginning I was fairly certain it was Bell's Palsy so my husband and I were actually joking around with the docs in the ER waiting to do my CAT Scan.  I did take one day off work when I was at my worst.  I was afraid I couldn't drive good enough safely.   ::MonkeyHaHa::

I think you might have to take a drive.  Does Trimm still have the car we used to post for trips?  I know Brandi lost most of her art in a clitch on her computer.  Ask Trimmy if we can get the car back to rescue JSM.  I think CC is up to -- well, I just don't know what he's up to . . . we must save JSM!

Hi monkey friends! ::HelloKitty::

Nothing new with me - which is good - I like normal.

Hope 4 Donks is doing well.  I think about her a lot.

Chubbie woke up Monday morning with a tick right on the edge of her eyelid.  I couldn't get it off since it was so close to her eyeball and she was not very cooperatIve with me.

Had to take her to the vet and two if them got it off.  She did well considering- she just grumbled a lot and squirmed.  Ha ha - could you imagine the two vet techs trying to do that to The Criminal??  Oh my - they prob would have had to muzzle her and give her a sedative.

Off to work - then a happy party this weekend - engagement dinner with friends.  Had three funerals lately, so this is a happy weekend.

Prayers for those in need -

Caddy

4Donks  ::MonkeyKiss::

Caddy Yikes what a place for a tick. I have found that if you soak a cotton ball with dish soap and rub it around on the tick it backs right out. That wouldn't work on Caddy's eye.

Cookie how is it going? How was you little trip with the family?

Sister think about you often and continued prayers for you, George, Connie and Dennis.  ::MonkeyAngel::

CC & JSM  we miss you guys ::MonkeyKiss::

Brandi  How are you doing? Thank you for the pictures in Caylee thread all the threads.  ::MonkeyKiss::

Nutt welcome to JSM.  ::HelloKitty::

Babs no doctor appointment today.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Can hope is is well with you and yours. ::MonkeyAngel::

Same old stuff here. Will have my MIL and SIL & BIL here for a week the second week of Sept. I need to start cleaning. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Hi
Went to the surgeon yesterday to be scoped after the radiation and chemo. NO SIGN  of CANCER !!!!
I have to go back to be scoped every 8 wks for the 1st year. My throat and vocal cords are still swollen therefor no voice. I also have an area of hemorrhage  on my right vocal cord that he thinks is caused by acid reflux, vomiting and or coughing. We’re working on all of the possible causes. They also ran blood tests for thyroid function. Apparently the radiation can cause the thyroid to cease functioning but can be easily treated with meds.
I’m getting better every day but I have the no patience. I want to be back to normal yesterday. They tell me I’m progressing rapidly.
I want to give a special thanks to Green Eyes for letting me bitch about recovery. She is a Saint.
Next week I go back to the Cancer Center for a Pet Scan and follow-up.
Once again I'm so grateful for all your thoughts and prayers.

Yes, we have been thinking of you and hoping you are rapidly getting better. Guess we all have to have more patience. No sign of cancer is GREAT!

Sorry about your vocal cord situation. That must be frustrating. Hope the acid reflus/vomiting and coughing abate very soon, so you have a physical voice!

You have a loud, positive voice here on the forum, no matter what!

We have missed you and it's so good to hear from you!

Yes, GE is a very sweet, supportive lady!

Keep improving, 4 Donks!

Wanted to share with you the e-mail I sent Connie's boys and my sister and my brother and Dennis:

Wanted to provide all of you with an update on Connie's trip to XXXXXXXXX to get her driver's license renewed. I'm also going to share my observations on where Connie is now -- mentally, emotionally, and physically, as I see it. Don't know how accurate this will be, as it is just my perspective.
 
First, Connie failed the driving tests. She did well, but not good enough. She tried very, very hard and it was painful for me to watch her struggling so much. She can go back and be re-tested, but that will have to come after some work on her part. They may offer some training as well. We will wait and see what the reports say. (The testers were very nice and very kind and did their best to work with her. I am so glad I was there to help interpret.) In all fairness, we were not prepared for what she was going to be tested on and had we known, we could have practiced at least part of it. The nail in the stop sign was -- they tested her on using her left foot to apply the gas and monitored how quickly she could put on the brakes (as if a child was running out in front of you). It was slow. This is something that can be practiced and not only physically, but mentally as well. If you've been driving for years using your right foot, the brain has to be retrained to use the left foot. But as I said, this was the nail and not in and of itself, the complete picture.

But let me start with Monday. Thinking now in terms of driving ability. The test was a lot of visual perceptions like matching numbers which were in circles to the next number in a circle without lifting your pencil from the paper. This was a timed exercise. Another was going from the number 1 to the letter A and then to number 2 and then letter B, the number 3 to letter C, etc. Connie did not do so well with this either. Part of what I learned Monday is Connie processes information differently than she did before her stroke (like when she counts, she has to keep starting from the beginning to get to the number she wants). She was asked to print her name, address, date of birth, and the date. She could not recall all of what was asked. We get a lot of "what"s from her, and now I know why. She is trying to process what we are saying and it may seem elementary to us, but to her processing ability it is confusing. I learned that instead of repeating the exact same thing, it is far better to rephrase the sentence or question. Additionally, verbal multiple choice is confusing. She was tested on which was closer, object A, object B, or object C. The better question was which is closer. This may too sound elementary, but in her processing, it is where it is. There was a lot more, of course, but the bottom line for me was her processing ability and our challenge to converse with her where she is processing.

On Tuesday, we awoke at 6:30 with Connie being sick to her stomach. Having spent the previous day and night with her, I know for sure it was not something she ate nor was it her medicine as she had not even taken it yet. She was violently sick for more than an hour, but was determined to take the test at 10 a.m. Truthfully, I think I would have passed on it, but she was very determined. What I think made her sick was on Monday she had to do quite a bit of walking (for her). That included at the rehab and at the motel. With her sinuses being as many of ours are, that congestion had settled in her stomach and because of the walking was going to come out. Bottom line, she has got to start walking more for lots of reasons. She needs this exercise not only for her physical well-being but her mental well-being. Staying in the villa almost 24/7 has lead to a sedentary life which is of no benefit. XXXX and XXXX, I know we have tried to talk to her about this, but to no avail. Now, if she really wants to pass this driving test, she is going to have to do it. She uses the excuses she is in pain, the brace is not right, etc. She probably is in pain, the brace may not be 100% -- but, she is going to have to learn to live with it (without so much medication) and work through it. It will be something she will not want to do, which is understandable. We would all like to live a pain-free life. For her, it ain't going to happen and she must decide what she wants more in her life -- pain-free or driving (using driving here as the carrot).

I'm giving this a lot of thought as to how and help her realize what has got to happen and what the consequences are for her decisions. How to move her from a type-A person, to good is good enough (it doesn't have to be perfect anymore). Bottom line is she is not motivated to help herself and many of the things she learned in rehab have fallen by the wayside. She was even having a difficult time knowing her colors (red, green, and yellow).

When she got in the car to leave on Tuesday, she was mentally and physically exhausted. Sorry XXX we couldn't do lunch, as she and I were really looking forward to it -- but I knew it wasn't a happening thing. Before we even left the parking lot she was asleep and didn't wake but once (to take more medicine) all the way home. I dropped her by the villa and then Dennis and I went to get the dogs from the kennel. By the time we got back to Connie's, she was sound asleep and I didn't wake her.

The other big issue is her medicine. XXXX and XXXX, I know you share this concern as well. She is taking enough pain medicine to knock out a gorilla. Besides the issues with that, she has a condition now in which she is like a hunch back. Her posture is horrible and without some intervention, she will become a permanent hunchback because the muscles in the back and shoulders which allow head-up, shoulders back, etc. will atrophy. There are more medical issues related to this -- but suffice it to say, it is not good.

XXXX and XXXX, we know it is tiresome to try and help someone who is often not willing to try to help themselves. We have often commented "if she would only try." I know I have been an enabler and I realize I am going to have to put my big girl panties on and not try and fix her life. Only she can truly make it better.

Dennis, I thank you so much for everything you do for Connie. You have been and are such a big help.

XXXX and XXXX, you are so appreciated for doing all that you do to help your Mom. You both are a gift.

XXXX and XXX, I know it is difficult for you to love her as much as you do and not be able to help with what is going on. Just keep thinking positive thoughts and remember she loves you both so very much.

I am open to any discussions about this. I am not ready to give-up on her, yet I know too that unless I change my attitude, she will never be any better but only get worse.

Love all of you so much,

Sister I just wanted to make a suggestion about Connie’s posture. Has she had a bone density done (dexascan). This stooped posture is often the result of low bone density and she can be put on meds to help stop the progression and some can rebuild the bone. After 5 yrs on Arimidex (cancer drug) my bone density was very compromised….Lumbar spine compression fractures and the loss of 1” in height.

I am so sorry you are going through this Sister. If it is not the bone density, then perhaps she needs a better pain management person. She may also be depressed and using the pain meds to get over the mental pain more than physical pain.

Sister after reading your letter all I can say is wow. My heart breaks for all of you. While I am glad the pain meds keep her free of pain. I wish there were some other way to treat her pain. It's had not to want to help her do things when you know how hard it is. It is a fine line between helping and being an enabler. And very hard to do. I have been guilty of it many times. I read an article a while back about a new procedure for people with intense pain. It didn't involve any meds. I will look and she if I can find it and send it to you if I do. I don't know if it's anything Connie could do. But it might be an option. ::MonkeyAngel::

Has anyone heard from 4Donks?  I think I remember someone was going to get her email address if they could?

Can anyone check in with her?


Hi Caddy,

I have heard from 4Donks she is recovery from her chemo & radiation treatments. She is busy with her fur babies.  I will tell her you have been asking about her. 

Good to hear you have heard from her.

I put a shout-out to her in this thread a week or two back, and was waiting to see her post that she was okay.

Please let her know I have been thinking of her as well, Green Eyes.

Thanks!

Me too!

Hi
Went to the surgeon yesterday to be scoped after the radiation and chemo. NO SIGN  of CANCER !!!!
I have to go back to be scoped every 8 wks for the 1st year. My throat and vocal cords are still swollen therefor no voice. I also have an area of hemorrhage  on my right vocal cord that he thinks is caused by acid reflux, vomiting and or coughing. We’re working on all of the possible causes. They also ran blood tests for thyroid function. Apparently the radiation can cause the thyroid to cease functioning but can be easily treated with meds.
I’m getting better every day but I have the no patience. I want to be back to normal yesterday. They tell me I’m progressing rapidly.
I want to give a special thanks to Green Eyes for letting me bitch about recovery. She is a Saint.
Next week I go back to the Cancer Center for a Pet Scan and follow-up.
Once again I'm so grateful for all your thoughts and prayers.

TBM, I think you hit the nail on the head.  She is depressed and I believe she is using the pain meds for mental pain more than physical pain.  Course, that's just my opinion.  Before her stroke, she used alcohol to numb her.  It is frightening and so sad.

There also could be a fracture which causes a lot of pain.  They can check for that and put something sort of like cement that can fix it and get rid of the pain quite quickly.

Is there a different pain killer she can go on?  Some pain killers react differently for some people and can actually have the reverse effect where they keep you awake instead of make you go to sleep.

Bearly, I think the problem is she is on too many different kinds of pain medication.  We see a doctor on Wednesday and I am going to insist she see a pain management doctor.  The general physician (or their assistant) just loads her with meds to help ease her pain.  This is beyond my management and needs to be done by a professional.

Work is great except for the 11 unpaid furlough days I must take because of the sequestration.  I take my furlough days on Monday and telework from home on Tuesday so I only have to drive to Fort Worth 3 times a week (60 miles R/T).

JSM is alive and doing well (just ask green eyes, babs, tbm, cookie, and bearly), just don't know why she doesn't post any more.

Got my ear pierced last Friday cause I saw an add on FB for .40 caliber S & W earrings.  Ordered a set for JSM and another set for her dad and me to split.   ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyDance:: ::MonkeyCool:: ::MonkeyCool::

Good morning,
 ::HelloKitty::

Going to spend some time with Connie this afternoon.  Pray it goes well.

Good to hear from you CC.  Send us a pix of your piercing . . . just the ear!

TBM, I was thinking we could start a thread ^ under health issues.  Maybe more folks could benefit from you wisdom.  ???
 ::germanshep::

I would be willing to do that. Can I do it myself or does one of the mods have to?

Done.

Well rats and double rats.  The AC decided to take a dump.  Just stopped blowing cool air. Don't know of the compressor went out or what.  Just had them out to replace some duct work.  Put in a call hopefully they will be out later tonight.  It's only 100 right now. The house is going up by the minute.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

What a relief to hear your AC is working!

We've had a relatively pleasant summer here on the East Coast as well, IMHO.

Plenty of rain and sunshine, which has helped us grow beautiful tomatoes, peppers and herbs. (I only planted one yellow squash and one zucchini plant this year, since I am the only one who eats them in our family, and one plant each would be fine for me, but they have presented many flowers, but no female flowers, so we have had no fruit from the plants! I read that you need at least two of each kind of squash so they can cross-pollinate.) Live and learn. heh Really thought I could get by with just the two squashes.

We're doing pretty well this summer, I am staying busy and getting healthier each day. Thanks for asking!

Update from this weeks testing at the cancer center.
Tests came back clear of cancer but due to the possibility of recurrence I will be seeing the radiation oncologist or the  Otolaryngologist once a month for 1 year and then they will see how often after they follow me for a year. I still need to gain a minimum of 20 lbs. (good luck with that ). Good news is after the new meds my throat and vocal cords are less swollen so I have a voice. ::MonkeyDance:: I'm told that it will come and go and sometimes I'll sound like a boy going through puberty with my voice all over the place. This can go on for up to 2 years before it stabilizes. Don't care am happy, happy, happy.
All the fur kids are amazed at this change of voice. They think they are living with multiple people  ::MonkeyDevil::
White count is still low but getting back to normal so soon I can deal with the donks and the barn. God bless my sister for doing it all this time.
As an aside when I finished radiation they gave me my mask...any ideas what I can do with it.

(I didn't know what a radiation mask was until I just looked it up ... seems not too many people get to keep them, since I could not find many posts of people using them for other things. Halloween came to my mind. Also, a wall-hanging ... something to be proud of having gone through and won, like a trophy!)

So happy your voice has made a resurgence!!!

Glad to hear you have a voice.  The fur kids must be confused. 

That surprises me.  When I go to my friend's apartment, I always disguise my voice in some way when I go in.  Her pup can't see me.  She runs to the door, tail wagging, every time.  (She is wary of new people.  She knows the first thing I do when I come in is to reach for her treat dish and give her two, one at a time.  She knows how to count, she looks for them until she gets the second one.  Then she sits by my feet for the rest of my time there.  If I move, she moves.)  I keep thinking I can fool her.

Update from this weeks testing at the cancer center.
Tests came back clear of cancer but due to the possibility of recurrence I will be seeing the radiation oncologist or the  Otolaryngologist once a month for 1 year and then they will see how often after they follow me for a year. I still need to gain a minimum of 20 lbs. (good luck with that ). Good news is after the new meds my throat and vocal cords are less swollen so I have a voice. ::MonkeyDance:: I'm told that it will come and go and sometimes I'll sound like a boy going through puberty with my voice all over the place. This can go on for up to 2 years before it stabilizes. Don't care am happy, happy, happy.
All the fur kids are amazed at this change of voice. They think they are living with multiple people  ::MonkeyDevil::
White count is still low but getting back to normal so soon I can deal with the donks and the barn. God bless my sister for doing it all this time.
As an aside when I finished radiation they gave me my mask...any ideas what I can do with it.

 ::donkey3::

Oh 4Donks, I am so happy for you and even though going once a month will be a pain in the donkey butt, the year will fly by quicker than we want.

I know you are so blessed with a sister who can stand in the gap for you.  What you wrote hit a nerve within me as I am evaluating what I am doing or not doing for my sister Connie.  After the failed driver's test, I sent out an e-mail to my family and have only received one response.  It was from the son who is doing the most for her (getting her groceries on a weekly basis, etc.).  Not one word from the other son, my brother, or my other sister.  I know my sensitivity is high, working with George for the past 25 years and now this last year with cancer.  I guess I am just tired because I see no end in sight with Connie and I am asking myself some hard questions.  I turn 65 Sunday, I wanted to retire but didn't . . . what about my life or lack thereof?  Sorry to be moaning . . .

Again my friend, I am thrilled for you.  Keep on truckin'   ::jeep3::

Well rats and double rats.  The AC decided to take a dump.  Just stopped blowing cool air. Don't know of the compressor went out or what.  Just had them out to replace some duct work.  Put in a call hopefully they will be out later tonight.  It's only 100 right now. The house is going up by the minute.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

Everytime I scrolled down I thought it said"  "Well rats and double rats.  CC decided to take a dump . . .

That's what it was supposed to say.  It was a slow news day.

I am so sorry you have computer problems.  I was hoping you found the answer awhile ago when you increased the speed and whatever else you did. 

I think you should move to PA.  The house across the street is for sale and I happen to know she got good computer reception.

4Donks is my role model.  You are both so fortunate to have sisters.  That is the one thing in life I have always wanted.  I have friends and relatives who are like sisters, but it is not the same as we do not share the same parents.

Sister, it is always darkest before the dawn.  Keep that in mind as you are traveling what seems to be a very dark path.  When one door closes, you may have to wait in the dark hallway a while until you find a window.  The window is there, you just have not located it yet.

Have you considered counseling for yourself?  I have heard it is not wise to be your own lawyer, I wonder if the same is true for counseling.  I think you could benefit from telling your story to a person who is trained and who you trust with your journey.  You may have to search for the right one.  Also, your sister definitely needs counseling outside of you.  You cannot do it all yourself, you are too close to the situation.  There are things she may want to share with a counselor that she cannot share with her family.  Anyone with pain can benefit from counseling.  It was one of the first things they told me.  

Happy birthday!  I cannot imagine you retiring.  I can never imagine you not wanting to put that extra special touch on a wedding, a funeral, or some special life event.

I check in onece in a while to see how 4 Donks and others are doing.  That's great news about your cancer, or absence thereof, 4 Donks.  I do think a lot of healing has to do with attitude, and yours is great.

Also, Sister, I know how frustrating it must be for you with your responsibility for your sister and others.  I have been in a similar position and I know that one person can't do everything, although I, too, tried it for a long time.  IMO, even though you are a trained counselor, your sister needs one who is not emotionally involved with her life as a sister naturally is.  I was only 18 when the entire responsibility for my sister, who had gone blind, was given me even though I had six other brothers and sisters, as well as a mother, who could have helped.  It was tough going to school, working and taking care of her.  In those days there was not State aid as there is now to help out.  She actually did regain her sight after several years and married twice and adopted two children, but in her later life, the problem returned and she was bedridden and blind.  She died a couple of years ago and I was astonished to learn she had never told her children or her husband about the years I took care of her.  In any case, I miss her dearly every day.  Someone said that when one door closes another opens and it is true.  I have no great insight for you except to say that this too shall pass. I did marry a wonderful man, had a very successful marriage, but unfortunately I lost him several years ago. You know about my life now.  I hope those who should take more responsibility do so, but from my own experience, I'd say they won't.  I admire your courage and your compassion.  But speaking frankly, no one is going to help until you say if they don't you will no longer take responsibility for your sister.  It sounds brutal, but believe me, it worked for me.  And her life was much better after other members of the family started helping out.

How disappointing Sister.  I hope they are just taking time to ponder your email, and they will come through with help and suggestions.  Would a family meeting be a possibility?
Has the son that is involved with helping and who answered your email offered any insight?
Sister, you sound burnt out and it is no wonder. 
Sister you deserve to have a life.  Isn't it time to give more care to yourself?
Wishing you a future that is happy and less stress free.

Please take some time for yourself. Everyone needs to step away from stressful situations to really be able to evaluate and plan. Sometimes the tough love needs to be directed inward.

It's more a coping strategy, I think.  Like it or hate it, it's mine.  I apologize to those who like nice clean humor and don't like people poking fun of the everyday life events.  I hope it doesn't offend anyone.  Never was one for crude language, though.

 ::germanshep::

I hope you know when I speak to you even though it is on a public forum, it is from my heart.  Whether it is positive or negative, I only mean to help and never to hurt.  I see you as a Sister of the heart and your life does matter to me, very much.

My son has had therapy of some form or another since he was a year old.  His primary diagnosis was true auditory agnosia.  Which means he could not understand language and of course could not speak as a result.  He managed to communicate with his therapists and your Sisters therapists will manage to communicate with her and vice versa.  That is for them to figure out and they will.

I searched and found a program and a teacher from Canada (not me alone, but in an active group of parents, which was given to me to lead) who taught a methodology used at the U of Southern Miss.  As a result of the methodologies I have used with my son, I have credits from colleges from California, to Mississippi to Pennsylvania.  What I am trying to say is for one, you may want to not only have individual support, but also join a support group.  

Here is my caution to you as I see how much you take on yourself.  Try to let someone else lead the group.  You will naturally, someday, be called upon to lead the group.  It happens to me all the time.  You may start out okay, but you will eventually wear out with having your own things to deal with, in addition to your extended family, your faith community, and now a group of people that will be calling on you night and day.

If you look for things under a certain speech disorder, especially if you know only my first name, my name will come up and so will my phone number because it was on the group invitation to respond to.  As a result, it is not unusual for me to get a phone call in the middle of the night from someone from Europe who is going to move to my area of the world.  I have learned a lot about other countries and the way they treat people with disabilities.  We are supposed to do a great job here in the US.  Unfortunately, it is all on paper and there is no way to enforce these rules.  It is the mouse watching the cheese scenario.  No one is in charge of enforcing the rules when it gets right down to it.

Many people have encouraged me to let my child fail, and then they will do something for us.  That was never an option for me as they predicted failure from the beginning.  They would just think they were right in their assessment.  When they had no program for my child, I simply pitched a tent on the front lawn of school and invited therapists I paid with compensatory time awarded to us from their failure to educate my son,  to come in and fill his day.  I once found an empty classroom in the school, that was only empty 1/2 day and we moved our lessons into that room.  I found a teacher in the school who was very sympathetic to our plight and would invite my son in on special occasions.  I will be forever grateful to this teacher and sent her a thank you note at the end of the year and other times.  She did this at peril to her own job.  The principal of this particular school was, according to her own attorney, "toxic to children with disabilities."  So, she did not want any in "her" school.  As you can imagine, this teacher did not think she did anything extraordinary, because that is the way extraordinary people think.  I never called the news crews as this was a personal matter involving my son and I wanted him to be able to tell his own story if and when he was ready.

I am merely a player in my son's story and I have to remember that.  It is not about me.  It is about him.  What he chooses to tell with his name attached to it, is his choice.  I also did not want to change things for my son only, I wanted things to change for those who came after us.  My Brother and SIL have a son in the same district who adopted a child whose first language was not English and they adopted him as an older toddler, so he has needs, too.  She said whenever she got to a meeting, they would say, are you related to Bearly?  When she said, "yes," they would say, "just tell us what you want."  She said they would try to offer her too much therapy, etc.  I told her if she decided to take a lot of therapy from someone who was not qualified to be giving the therapy, regardless of the therapist passing a bunch of tests saying she was qualified, this was not a good thing.  You really have to be present in your child's life to know what is and isn't working.  The same with your Sister, Sister.

I am sorry I moved from Connie's story to Cubbie's story, but it is the only way I can relate, as I am not present in your Sister's life and only see her through your eyes.  I hope there is something in there that helps you to see something you had not seen before.  If you decide to pitch a tent somewhere, let me know, I would be happy to join you there if you need company or support.  Of all the things we did for change in the district, the tent is the one everyone in the district has heard about.  When I went to a meeting, I would have to start all over in telling them about my child and his needs, and listening to what they found.  I want you to also learn to be an active listener at times and also a passive listener.  Being an active listener allows you to understand what they are really saying.  Being a passive listener may let them give you too much information and you can use this extra information as a bargaining point.  Well, you said.....whatever it is they said that was negative about what they want to do and may allow you to tweak certain parts of a program so they fit Connie.

All this said, you may never need to bargain for any therapy, etc. but it is only one of many tools you may need in your tool box in going forward with Connie.  I wish you much success while accompanying Connie on her life journey.  Elizabeth Kubler Ross has a book on the stages of dying, which is probably familiar to you, people have changed the stages of death and added to them in their own passages.  Your Sister is experiencing a death.  A death to the life she once knew and she will most likely be going through these stages.  Many of the things you describe Connie going through mimic these stages.  These are not clean stages, you can go back and forth between stages and go through them out of order.  Each person is different.  This book, which I read on my own, as part of a Social Work class presentation I took in college, helps me see things differently than just looking without that extra knowledge from the book.  It applies to a lot of life events.  I am probably not telling you things you don't know, but maybe you have not looked at what you are dealing with without some of the tools you lend to others.

I hope something helped you, if not then I hope it helped someone else who reads this.  It is just my opinion and observations as I have gone through life as a caretaker.  My Mom has needed care since I was very young, so they are observations from a Chronic Caretaker.

I so wish you lived closer to me, Sister.

You are in my thoughts and Prayers ::MonkeyAngel::

Hi GE.  Glad to hear you're keeping cool.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
Our son is home for a few days and it feels so good!  He spent some time at his cottage and his fiancée and her son flew home this morning and he is staying on a few days to be with us.


Can,

How wonderful to have your son visit with you a few days. I know the joy in your heart having him with you. Enjoy Enjoy


GE - I will, I will.
He is such a comfort to both of us.  Just having him nearby.  First time he's been home since September. 

can,
have a good time with your son!  What a joy that must be!

Yes, I will be in the pulpit Sunday.  But we are going to have a singing Sunday!  Just music and some of the stories behind the hymns.
Thank you all for your prayers -- I deeply appreciate them.

I hope "Happy Birthday" is one of the songs they will be singing!

How has your progress from your own operations been coming along?

Bearly, again and again, thank you for your thoughts.  I know it is from your heart because it always touches mine.  I did read "On Death and Dying" many years ago, maybe I need to buy a new copy and read it again.  It had a great impact on me when I was going through the roller coaster of I'm going to die, I am not going to die.  Being diagnosed at 24 with terminal ovarian cancer changes a lot about one's thought process.  Now, 41 years later, I am still dealing with death and dying -- if not my own, then others.
Had 2 more tumors "torched" several weeks ago and have not heard back.  In my book, no news is good news.  Thank goodness have not had chemo or radiation in several years
Where is it you live?  Forgive me, I forgot.  Maybe I need to take my vacation in your area.  I have definitely decided to take the money and go on vacation.  But where to go?  I have always loved Key West, but I think I need something brand new.  And this baby ain't driving no where except the airport.

So everyone, put on your thinking caps, where should I go for vacation?  Was thinking about Arizona.  Was thinking about Montana.  I just really don't know!

Thank you everyone for letting me vent my frustrations.  Knowing you care means so much to me.

Brandi, any idea on how to do a "can't see the forest for the trees"?????

Blessings.

I think I have a few ideas on the forest/trees.

I want to pass along a great site I use to buy books. Have been buying them here for many years. It's called ThriftBooks. Most titles can be bought (used) for $3.97 or so. I love the idea of recycling used books, by selling them (passing them on) for dirt cheap! I am waiting on an order of David Sedaris books I ordered last week, as we speak. (I have read 6 of his books this summer. Love his humor. And I love reading short stories.)

Found Kubler-Ross' book there for you: http://www.thriftbooks.com/searchresult.aspx?searchtext=on%20death%20and%20dying&searchby=title&intsortby=1&intsortorder=0

I probably have a copy here somewhere, as I read it back in my college days. Finding it, is another story though. LOL

Seriously, check out ThriftBooks. Free shipping, too. I highly recommend them. Perfect way to find and buy books very cheaply. If you buy more than one book and buy from the same location you get 50¢ off each book after the first. Simply cannot beat the prices.

Good grief, Sister.  I hope you understood that, especially the last paragraph.  I don't like this computer.  Some letters don't come up unless I really press.  I see I missed an apostrophe and several other things I thought I put in there.  If you have any questions, let me know.

I have never been on a plane.  Okay, everyone, pick your jaws up off the floor.  I am not a good one to ask where to go. 

I love Florida, it is definitely the Sunshine State, I felt it the moment we crossed the state line.  Of course, since Jersey is so close to us, it is hard to go anywhere else.  When you find something you love, you stick with it.  I also love Maine.  I have a friend who has a house right on the beach in the forest in the middle of an old apple orchard, so if you are hungry, you just reach out and pick one up.  It's paradise.  Once on my way to her house, I stopped at a motel that has an outdoor pool that is heated and has natural salt water in it.  What an amazing experience, to be in the cold weather at night watching the stars, from a pool that is warm and embracing and smells totally natural.  It's one of those snapshot moments your mind takes that remains forever in your memories.  If you wait until the season is over, there are lots of good prices in New England and it is the best and most beautiful time of the year to visit.

If I had to go somewhere completely different.  I think I would choose Hawaii, or a cruise, or Alaska. 

I know the cruise ships have been having problems lately, but that is why traveling that way is so affordable, according to a friend who is going on his first cruise next week.  Watch out for hurricane season coming up and all the flooding that is going on now.  I have a friend in Arizona that asks me all the time to visit.  She moved there because her daughter has juvenile arthritis and it has helped her pain immensely.

I bet Cookie has a lot of good suggestions, I live vicariously through her.

Have fun wherever you choose.  Can't wait to find out where it is.

Received a call from daughter this morning.  Seems a pup she has rescued and trying to find him a home was left alone and he had an anxiety attack. Besides ripping the blinds from all the windows he could get to he knocked down her Lap Top and shattered the screen. Since she works from home not good. She took it to a local tech guy and her told her he could replace the screen but the computer works and she could use another screen until she could get a new lap top. So she only lost a few hours of work this morning.

Separation anxiety!

I know it well. Brandi (a rescue) also suffers from it. Got her a thundershirt-type of garment, and it helps. Seems to make her happy wearing it. ;-)

Glad your daughter can get back to work. I am sure she was surprised (not in a good way) when she discovered the mess!

Yes she was surprised when she found out what had happened. I have to hand it to her she just set out to find a solution to the problem. Without getting over whelmed. Not so sure I would have handled so calmly. I will mention the thunder shirt to her.

Sure does sound like she handled it calmly and rationally.

I wouldn't have! LOL

I'd have been in a panic for a while and spent too much time panicking, while she spent her time/energies on solving the issue!

It seems that daughters computer decided that it didn't want to work any more after she brought it back home and hooked it up to a new screen. LOL  But all is good a friend talked in into getting a used one that had been refurbished from shop in her little town. For a really reasonable price. She got a 6 month guarantee with it so can work and then save to get a new one down the road.  ::monkeywine2::

Morning Monkeys ::HelloKitty::

Continued Prayers for all that need them. ::MonkeyAngel::

Received a call from daughter this morning.  Seems a pup she has rescued and trying to find him a home was left alone and he had an anxiety attack. Besides ripping the blinds from all the windows he could get to he knocked down her Lap Top and shattered the screen. Since she works from home not good. She took it to a local tech guy and her told her he could replace the screen but the computer works and she could use another screen until she could get a new lap top. So she only lost a few hours of work this morning.



Oh boy!  The unpredictability of our little ones.  Good luck to her.

Good afternoon,
Had a wonderful birthday!  Many thanks for all the well wishes!

 ::MonkeyCheer2:: ::MonkeyCheer2:: ::MonkeyCheer2::

Trimmy, you're back!!!! Yeah!

CC, if you don't produce JSM I will do a Govenor's Warrant and have her extradited up here!

I"ve been thinking and thinking about you all, fortunately, I thought about ya'll when I had a computer in front of me and the thought, all at the same time.

so, this is what I know: 4 Donks, you kicked some kind of cancer's azz! Way to go!!! Sorry I wasn't here to support you.

Klaas had Bell's Palsy and is doing better...very glad to hear it.

Sister, are you Connie's sister? If so, please take the following in the spirit with which it is offered: I've missed much of the story, but from what I've read, she seems to not care so much if she gets better, or to another level of competence. Her normal has changed. While your expectations of her remain normal, hers have changed. She may say she wants to drive...but maybe that is just to pacify you, so you won't make the hard decision to step back? We all have different ways that we act and react to those in our lives. She knows if she pushes button A, you will do what you always do when she pushes button A. It sounds like she's in a home of some sort, with lots of help from you and one child. Take a step back, let the other children help in a way that they feel comfortable with. (THIS IS VERY HARD TO DO!!!) You have a life that you deserve to enjoy. You cannot put your life, your happiness, at her disposal. If she wants to be spaced out on drugs, that's her choice. You cannot save her unless she wants to be saved. I do think a pain management specialist is in order. I know this may be incredibly hard for you, but she has to live her life...for her. And you have to live your life for you. [whew, and I thought YOU were the preacher! ::MonkeyHaHa:: ]

Lessee...what else? oh yeah, just where the hell is JSM????????????????????????????????

I"ve missed you all terribly, and will be checking in more often. Work has literally sucked my soul out...I think I have PTSD from the cancer (all is well on that front) and one horrible mean foul boss and one new one who has no managment skills and a union PRINCESS (yep, she's still there. I call her Skeletor, but only to myself.)

So, catch me up. Did Bearly get a man? Is CC still drinking his days away? ::MonkeyTongue::

And Trimm? I still play Tom Petty on the way to work, and I still think of you!  ::MonkeyHeart::

Oh how I have missed your humor. ::MonkeyKiss::  Miss Trimm is still dealing with the hockers. One of the duds killed himself.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

As far as Ms. Scamthony she is still in hiding. But trying to file bankruptcy to get out of all the money she owes. Still putting off ZG law suit.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

I don't know why JSM hasn't been on. I know she has a new boss & he isn't very easy to work for.  Her & CC are doing okay.

JSM, that surgeon did an awesome job! I surely hope CC enjoyed the 9 holes he played WITH YOUR NEW CLUBS no less, while you were under the knife.

Sister, I haven't finished all about Belle, but I hope she's back and better behaved.

Brandi, sounds like you are taking good care of yourself, good for you.

All other monkeys, I think of you often and pray for all.

(Oh, and CC? I wasn't kidding about that Governor's warrant. I CAN reach out and touch someone...in any place we have extradition. I once had a guy pulled off a plane in Minneapolis, on his way to China. Produce JSM!  ::MonkeySkate::

Tevye, it is good to have you back too.  I think you need to put out that governor's thingy.  CC may think because he is now working for the government he can get away with anything  ::MonkeyJnBox::   just saying!
Don't ever worry about hurting my feelings about Connie -- I need all the help I can get.  You are right, she knows what reaction she will get if she pushes certain buttons.  just an fyi -- she is the one really pushing the driving.  I could have just renewed her license, but knew it wasn't safe and knew she needed some help with it.  Whole different topic.

Hope everyone has a blessed day!

How nice of you to mention me ;-)

I have not updated my condition, but it has been a week (this year) since I went to the hospital for the nerve pain I was experiencing. Since then, I have lost 62 pounds, gotten quite healthy(!) and have been able to completely get off one of the two meds I was taking for the nerve pain. The other med, I have titrated down from 2700 mg/day to 1500 mg/day and I am currently titrating it down to as far as I can without experiencing much pain. I also now take Vitamin D supplements and sit in the sun every day to get it naturally. I also take ginger root capsules for its anti-inflammatory qualities and B12 for nerve health. I have not felt this good in years! So, there was a good outcome from that horrible nerve damage. (Some nerve damage never heals, so we are just waiting to see.)

This old body has responded very well to all of this. Eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and lean chicken and turkey, watching out for carbohydrates is exactly what my body likes.

I am so glad your health has also continued to improve, Tevye.

It's good to have you back!

Well, you would have to bring up the e word!

We bought a Schwinn Airdyne 2 Exercise bike back in February, and I used it, worked my way up to being rather good with it, then suddenly (I forget the reason) I stopped using it. Same with my husband.  Here's the bike: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12003707

It's been, oh, quite a few months since either one of us has used it, but I promise, I am going to start soon!

I have been more active though, since with the weight loss, my back (displaced disk) does not seize as much.

Oh, and we are starting to play tennis again. Only played (practiced once so far though.)

So, not really, exercise has not been much a part of the weight loss. Just eating real food (not processed food-like products) has been the key for me.

I'm pretty sure it can be recovered. I HOPE it can be. I love calling certain houses and hearing voices I'll never really hear again. Makes ya feel like they're not really gone, just away for awhile.

My friend, I am so happy to see you! :smt058
(Oh and thanks for saving CC's bacon..a warrant from another jurisdiction can kinda screw with a DoD job!)

We got a new dog, another Aussie Shepherd. Ozzie passed on last year, but he had time to train the new Aussie, Kiwi, in some ways. In other ways, not so good. I keep telling Kiwi he's not Tigger, he does NOT have a spring in his butt!

I am still working with skeletor....the bane of my existance.

Oh, yeah, and I bought a cabin, a MY cabin. Our kids are helping me fix it up, I don't think the Mister will be going with me, his loss. We like each other fine...but I have some issues about me working and him not that are not setting well with me. Oh, the cabin has no water and no electricity. I'm working on ways around that....Privvies are allowed in my new county (which, thankfully, is still not the county I work in.)

And I got TWO new pairs of cowboy boots, fancy ones with flowers embroidered on them. One of them is my work at the cabin pair, the other is for dancing. Now if I could just find some cowboys....LOL!

Trimmy and GE, DUDE! Did you see that kid flipping his sticks? AWESOME!

Our 10 yr old grandson is staying with us for 6 weeks while his parents work out of town. Think I could get this kid to come over and do wake-up calls for me?

Grandson laughs when I tell him I used to have to spray his daddy with water to get him up...and I still have the spray bottle.

I spent last night at the "cottage" )hubster calls it the "cabin" because he wants to just use it for the weekend, I don't think he took me too seriously when I told him as soon as it's insulated, drywalled and I have elec., I'm really and truly moving out there). It was nice and quiet and rodent free. Tyvek rules!

ok, got it. They're kinda big..am I using the wrong link? Anyway, this is the property (5 acres)...with my son helping Grandson #2 fly a kite.

There are bears in the area (I need to take my rifle out there...my handgun would just piss off Mr. or Mrs. Bear) coffee and binoculars for critter sitings.

Supper time. I love to go there right after work on Fridays, grab a sandwich at the store on my way outta town, and just read! But, I kept running the Kindle low on batteries. Then I would have to charge it in the car...but I got a small solar charger that I tested last night. It works good and it's fast. The rule used to be "when the Kindle is dead, it's time to go home." Well, the solar charger kinda changes that, heh heh heh!

Thanks, Klaas. There is lots of work to be done, but I find the less I think I need, the less work needs to be done. Yep, there will be a shower, so I will shave my legs, but it will be complicated. There's that whole "ya gots no well, lady!" thing to work around!

Hmmm...how to stay out of your quote box...my monkey skills are rusty! the cottage is about 20 miles from the house. It's about 3 miles less to drive to work, and one son, DIL and grandson live about 1/2 a country block away, thru the woods. It's got lots of flat places for gardens and an ice rink and some great sliding hills. The kids all love it, and are my "crew".

Love your Aladdin lamp. Had one exactly like yours, but we did not use green lamp oil. Just regular kerosene.

It's fun seeing your pics and listening to your dreams being fulfilled with the cabin.

LOL! No, you're not nosy. it's about 680 square feet, including the loft that covers half the main floor. I love the loft, it's big enough for at least 2 twin beds, has a door to a balcony porch (where I sat last nite to read). My boys installed a spiral staircase that I found on Craigslist, so I don't have to climb a 14' step ladder to go to bed. They also went and picked up the Vermont Castings woodstove I got really really cheap on craigslist...I'm a craigslist whore now!

I plan on putting an armoire in the loft to keep my clothes in. I will have to majory down-size in the clothing department. I'll just explain to my bosses that I have a two-week rotation....wish we had uniforms!  ::brandimonkeycop::

Oh, and I have to add 320 square feet to meeting the zoning requirement. So, we'll build a covered porch this fall, and enclose it next year. I am learing the hard lessons of building inspectors (they'll give me a pass on the existing bldg., but want to be involved in anything else. ) The good thing is that getting electricity to the house will cost me $105.00! All I have to pay for is the pole and that box thingy that hold all the magic electricity,

In another post (still got dishes to finish0 I'll explain more. suffice it to say, I will be re-learning how to mud drywall, make a woodstove wall and floor, run electric (that I already know how to do, just not where). I will also be furnishing the cottage with family heirlooms.

But the problem is that now that she has started, there is no way to stop her in our house. I have tried everything. Anyone have any suggestions or want a beautiful black cat?

TBM I am so sorry to hear about your cat.  Wish I had some ideas to help you. Is she just randomly potting all over or has she picked spots to potty?  I can tell you that if you have a stream cleaner to use vinegar & hydrogen peroxide and mix with water. My little machine I use I use 2 cups each of the vinegar & hydrogen peroxide  and 4 cups of water.  Went over the areas where mine had decided to use instead of the litter box. 

The problem even after I would shampoo the the cats could still smell the urine odor and use the spot again. I have found that the vinegar kills the odor enzymes and peroxide cleans really well with out any soap residue.

When daughter was here and her dogs messed on the floor the cats started using the carpet instead of their litter box.  All the cats got put out side. After daughter moved out I shampooed with carpet cleaner.Thinking I had gotten rid of the problem. Then I rescued a kitty and she did okay, Then one of the semi house cats had a litter in the house. When they got old enough to come out of the bathroom and were using the litter box I let them roam the house. And then I was cleaning up messes again. That's when I started using the vinegar and peroxide it took a couple times but it seems to have worked.  I did the whole house to get rid of all the odors from when daughters dogs were here.

Sad to say when they start to mark areas  it's hard to stop them.  And all you can do is make them outside animals.

Oh Wow Tevye. Your little home away from home is great.  You sound like you have it all worked out.  Loved the pictures. Thanks for sharing.  Love your working boots. How wonderful you are close to your son & family.

I just want to say the other thing going on with hubs will work out.  It's hard I know. Been there and thought I would go crazy. Just keep on trucking I know you have it in you. You survived the big C you will make it though this too. ::MonkeyAngel::

So, I have to get rid of my cat. She is not working out anymore - she has started peeing outside the box (expecially carpet!)  I took her to the vet and she is medically fine. But the problem is that now that she has started, there is no way to stop her in our house. I have tried everything. Anyone have any suggestions or want a beautiful black cat?

I'm no cat expert, but there is a guy on television (maybe animal planet).  Some folks had this same problem, but I can't remember how it was fixed, but it was.  If I'm remembering correctly, they got a new litter box and put it in a new location.  Wish I could remember all the particulars.  Maybe goggle it -- we can goggle just about everything else.

Nut, those are the questions My Mom asked, right before she told me she'd visit that place, but never stay too long. I think it's the lack of a real bathroom that's a hangup for her. No worries, however. I know when she sees the kitchen sink from her girlhood home installed in my home, and the desk that she taught me how to refinish when I was 11 and a few other family treasures...she'll like it.

And she's gonna love the RED tile I plan on using for the woodstove backwall and hearth.

::MonkeyCheer2:: ::MonkeyCheer2:: ::MonkeyCheer2::

Trimmy, you're back!!!! Yeah!

CC, if you don't produce JSM I will do a Govenor's Warrant and have her extradited up here!

I"ve been thinking and thinking about you all, fortunately, I thought about ya'll when I had a computer in front of me and the thought, all at the same time.

so, this is what I know: 4 Donks, you kicked some kind of cancer's azz! Way to go!!! Sorry I wasn't here to support you.

Klaas had Bell's Palsy and is doing better...very glad to hear it.

Sister, are you Connie's sister? If so, please take the following in the spirit with which it is offered: I've missed much of the story, but from what I've read, she seems to not care so much if she gets better, or to another level of competence. Her normal has changed. While your expectations of her remain normal, hers have changed. She may say she wants to drive...but maybe that is just to pacify you, so you won't make the hard decision to step back? We all have different ways that we act and react to those in our lives. She knows if she pushes button A, you will do what you always do when she pushes button A. It sounds like she's in a home of some sort, with lots of help from you and one child. Take a step back, let the other children help in a way that they feel comfortable with. (THIS IS VERY HARD TO DO!!!) You have a life that you deserve to enjoy. You cannot put your life, your happiness, at her disposal. If she wants to be spaced out on drugs, that's her choice. You cannot save her unless she wants to be saved. I do think a pain management specialist is in order. I know this may be incredibly hard for you, but she has to live her life...for her. And you have to live your life for you. [whew, and I thought YOU were the preacher! ::MonkeyHaHa:: ]

Lessee...what else? oh yeah, just where the hell is JSM????????????????????????????????

I"ve missed you all terribly, and will be checking in more often. Work has literally sucked my soul out...I think I have PTSD from the cancer (all is well on that front) and one horrible mean foul boss and one new one who has no managment skills and a union PRINCESS (yep, she's still there. I call her Skeletor, but only to myself.)

So, catch me up. Did Bearly get a man? Is CC still drinking his days away? ::MonkeyTongue::

And Trimm? I still play Tom Petty on the way to work, and I still think of you!  ::MonkeyHeart::

Yes, I have a new man.  But it's not what you are thinking.  Cubbie is now an adult.  How did that happen?

     "teddybear2::

Missed you, too!

Brandi, that's awesome about your weight! did it involve (shudder ::cartwheel::) exercise? You should be very proud of yourself.

Well, you would have to bring up the e word!

We bought a Schwinn Airdyne 2 Exercise bike back in February, and I used it, worked my way up to being rather good with it, then suddenly (I forget the reason) I stopped using it. Same with my husband.  Here's the bike: http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12003707

It's been, oh, quite a few months since either one of us has used it, but I promise, I am going to start soon!

I have been more active though, since with the weight loss, my back (displaced disk) does not seize as much.

Oh, and we are starting to play tennis again. Only played (practiced once so far though.)

So, not really, exercise has not been much a part of the weight loss. Just eating real food (not processed food-like products) has been the key for me.

My friend, I am so happy to see you! :smt058
(Oh and thanks for saving CC's bacon..a warrant from another jurisdiction can kinda screw with a DoD job!)

We got a new dog, another Aussie Shepherd. Ozzie passed on last year, but he had time to train the new Aussie, Kiwi, in some ways. In other ways, not so good. I keep telling Kiwi he's not Tigger, he does NOT have a spring in his butt!

I am still working with skeletor....the bane of my existance.

Oh, yeah, and I bought a cabin, a MY cabin. Our kids are helping me fix it up, I don't think the Mister will be going with me, his loss. We like each other fine...but I have some issues about me working and him not that are not setting well with me. Oh, the cabin has no water and no electricity. I'm working on ways around that....Privvies are allowed in my new county (which, thankfully, is still not the county I work in.)

And I got TWO new pairs of cowboy boots, fancy ones with flowers embroidered on them. One of them is my work at the cabin pair, the other is for dancing. Now if I could just find some cowboys....LOL!

Hey, it's Friday night. I need some silly...badly. So, I'll start: ::MonkeyHaHa:: ::MonkeyHaHa::

You cannot tap your toes while you are in the giant human sucking machine that does bone scans...full body ones. You have to decide that yep, you prolly do have some form of PTSD, but you can handle it, cos you can't get up and run and wreck that million dollar machine. Solution: next time, I'll put a book on my iPod to listen to, instead of Pistol Annies, Black Eyed Peas and Emerson Lake & Palmer. Oh, yeah, and next time? Take that little blue pill.

I've have a really poopy week. I feel like toilet papering someone's house. Where's the most recent pic of casa de Anthony? And Mushroom head, what's that ol witch up to?

Oh Tevye sorry you had a bad week.  I decided since MIL was coming for a visit I would re-decorate the quest bathroom. Since I love butterflies I went with that. Just put up the new shower curtain and rug. Lets just say it's a little bit to much for a small bathroom.  ::MonkeyHaHa:: Oh well it looks new & fresh even if it's a bit over whelming.  ::MonkeyHaHa::

Bearly, yes, that is a gun. Yes, I have a concealed carry permit. Yes, most days, I wear a gun to work. and yes, there are COYOTES AND BEARS out there!!!! It's a very remote-ish locale. But don't worry, when I have any of the grandkids with me, the gun is even more concealed...and disabled, to a point.

Now, I just have to grow 6 inches so I can reach to the top of the door so I can hang a shotgun up! Bears HATE shotguns... and so do druggies. My safety is my responsibility. I work with cops, I know how long the response time is (I live in the very tippy top of a large county....we don't get much po po out there.

Yea response times are not what they were even a few years ago. I am still waiting since last year for the police response to a b&e in progress . . . .

Not up to a story, but remind me of this sometime.

Good grief!  I have an MRI coming up.  I read that first part to fast.  I thought you said you could not suck your toes when you were in the machine...  I wonder if I can ask someone else to suck my toes when I am in the MRI?  Must be the little blue pills.

My name is Tevye and I'm a junkie"!). It's killin' me!!

but all in all, I'm so glad he's here! And here, we live in a neighborhood, so he has lots of kids to run around with. At his home, out in the county (by my new cottage) there is no one. We are blessed.

Oh no!

     (http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/JSM-Chat/get-well.png~original)

Did a little research for you on adult chicken pox and came up with these suggestions:

  • Take acetaminophen, NOT aspirin!
  • Calamine lotion (the old mainstay) and Aveeno lotion can help soothe and dry up the pox
  • Bathing (hygiene) is important to help prevent infections, 1 C of baking soda in bath can help the itching
  • Antihistimines can help control severe itching
  • Increase your water intake to help prevent dehydration

Hopefully your doctor has prescribed antiviral drugs for you and given you lots of advice.

Please keep us up to date on your progress and know we are all thinking of you and hoping your case is as mild as can be.

Sister are they chicken Pox or Shingles?  Hope you have seen the doctor. If they are shingles they hurt like the dickens. My brother had them last year.  ::MonkeyEek::

Hello to all you sweet monkeys.  ::MonkeyCheer4:: ::MonkeyDance::

Hello Trimm ::HelloKitty:: How's the biscuit world doing?  ::MonkeyKiss::

Hi both of you! And everyone else as well!

Everytime I think of Trimm now, I really, really want a biscuit!

And I cannot have one.

 ::MonkeyHaHa::

Oh no Brandi.  That's got to be hard. I don't think I could do it.  Good for you for sticking to your diet change.   ::MonkeyDance::

Oh, Sister, oh no! Chicken pox...I hope and pray that you can just sleep thru it! (that's my ultimate goal when I'm sick, just sleep thru it) Should I send the magic teapot with my "special recipe" included? ::MonkeyDevil::

Prayers for all the Monkeys in need.  ::MonkeyAngel::

I have finished getting the house ready for in laws visit. They should be here late afternoon or early evening. Made potato salad last night we will have ham with it. So when ever they get here and are ready to eat just have to set the table.

Made out the menus for the week that they will be here. Daughter tells me okay we will be here for this and this and this etc. So should have a full house most of the week.  ::MonkeyHaHa::  Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

I hope after all your cleaning/redecorating the past few weeks, that you can relax and enjoy your company!

I also hope you have a wonderful time and don't spend too much time in the kitchen cooking and cleaning.

Have fun!

Sister...it could be shingles that you have. If you get to the doctor and get on a medication for shingles within 72 hrs of the outbreak, it will significantly reduce the breakout. Take care of yourself!

It does and it's something I could prepare ahead of time so it would be ready when ever they got here. Which was a good thing since they got mixed up in Fort Worth with all the dang road work and they were about 2 hours later getting in than I figured.  I am so happy that they are here.

I am going to be keeping an eye on TV tomorrow for the anniversary of 9-11,

Hi CC.

Where's JSM? Thought she had come back.

Shingles can be very very painful and cause life-long problems, and pain.

Not sure what's the better of the two, adult chicken pox or shingles. I lean towards adult chicken pox as the lesser of the two evils, from hearing about those I have known who had shingles.

I hope we hear back from Sister soon to find out how she is doing!

Tell JSM hi for me.

Hi everyone,
 ::HelloKitty::
Sorry I haven't been around.  Reality calls sometimes.  Just wanted to let you know I'm almost all better.  It was adult chicken pox, but other than a low grade fever and a few lingering itchy spots, I am doing good.
Leaving tomorrow for a few days in the mountains.  Going to take a vacation no matter what.  I need it! and therefore I will do it.
I keep all in my daily prayers and am sending lots of light and happiness your way.
Blessings.

Thanks, have missed you too!  See you haven't lost your sense of humour.


It's more a coping strategy, I think.  Like it or hate it, it's mine.  I apologize to those who like nice clean humor and don't like people poking fun of the everyday life events.  I hope it doesn't offend anyone.  Never was one for crude language, though. 

I really have missed seeing you and often wonder about your family.  Can we get an update?

        ::MonkeyHeart::



Well it's a darn good coping strategy!  Not only that, it brings smiles to many, myself included.
Thank you.
How are you and your son, parents, all?  Cubbie is all grown now.  Where does the time go?

Any update I can give on my family is not too positive I'm afraid.
What can I say that is positive?  Have seen daughter and family several times over the summer. Grandkids are enchanting, lively and smart.  They love the novelty of picking fruit and veggies from Nonno's garden.   They were up on ladders picking peaches a couple of weeks ago, Grandma holding on to them and the ladder for dear life.  Aidan, who is 4 wanted only the most perfect unblemished ones. 
Son was here for a nice visit. Took his Dad to his cottage for a few days.  Male bonding and all that good stuff. 
Also did some fun stuff with me and his Gran.
Hubs vertigo has been in remission for quite a while
My darling bro is very ill.  He has cancer in both lungs and the bladder removal surgery he had about one year ago has left scarring that has caused blockage in kidneys and ureter.  He will have a day surgery this week to relieve some of the pressure.  It's a stop gap measure and he requires major surgery to remove the scar tissue but not until he has lung surgery.
He was given two to four months a couple of weeks ago. The lung specialist and the bladder
specialist have consulted and have offered surgery.  He has decided to take his chances with the surgeries.  Not much of a choice is it.  Left lung first.  He desperately wanted to visit me for a week and tell our Mom - spend time with us.
He told me this is the only thing he had in his bucket list, as he put it, and now sadly he cannot come.
That is out of the question now, and we have arranged that since my Mom was already scheduled to visit me and stay overnight on Friday he will call her at my place so she is not alone after the news.  I will keep her here with us for as long as she wants to be here.
I can't imagine how devastating this will be for my Mom and I'm trying to prepare myself, will myself to have the strength to handle this. Afraid she will collapse.

Her husband has not adapted to the nursing home and has recently been moved to another floor.  She was called by a nurse today and asked to come today to see if she could get him away from the door where he stands trying to get out.(locked unit)   She lives out of town and I am the only source to take her there. Mom called very upset and I called the Dir. of Care and told her if my Mother could manage him, he would still be at home with her.  His nature is to be very oppositional. In short, it's a hot mess.
His own daughter took him out of the facility for a three day visit @ her home.  She could not manage him and returned him to the facility the same day.

Ending on the positive note that thankfully, hubs is very supportive and he loves my brother, like a brother.

I know bearly, there will be prayers for Gary, and I thank you in advance.  xoxo

Hi Can, its still in the mid to high 90's, maybe a day of rain on Friday than temp will be climbing back up.  Guess we are running about 10 degrees above normal but grateful we aren't experiencing what those poor folks in Colorado are dealing with.

I just did a load of clothes - and pulled them out of the dryer.  Apparently the NEW navy blue pair of shorts of hubs was not to be washed with my panties.  All my panties are blue now - argh.

Hi monkeys!

Been overwhelmed with events in my life lately, but think of you all so often.

 ::justice2nj2:: ::MonkeySkate:: "teddybear2:: ::germanshep:: ::bee:: ::donkey3::  ::jeep3:: ::monkeywine2:: ::MonkeyHeart:: ::MonkeyAngel::

Prayers for all of you.  Glad to hear the good news.  So sorry to hear about your brother and the news your Mom will hear.  I think your Mother's husband will be fine after a while.  I see people do this all the time where my Parents are and they eventually do calm down.  I hope it is soon.  Maybe they could give him some medication for anxiety if that is what the problem is.  It sucks getting old.

God bless you, my friend.

Hubs is home recovering from diverticulitis surgery on Monday. He is doing so well. He says he feels better than he has in years, even after his operation. I am enjoying him being home.

Good for you, GE! Normal is good.

We are having all 3 grands this weekend, the Mister doesn't know about it yet, and they are bringing their dog. Good thing all three dogs get along. Now all I have to do is clean this darn mess of a house up, and we're set. Sweet DIL bought all kinds of frozen food, so I don't have to cook. She EVEN bought (get this!) FROZEN PANCAKES!!!  I am so beat already (we're 2 people down in the office this week, guess who gets to do everyone else's work?) I don't know how I'll make it thru. Oh well, if things get bad, we'll go out to the cottage and I'll have them plant daffodils by the hundreds for me!!  ::MonkeyJnBox::

(Oh, work is so bad that I'm making jokes about "just shoot me now..oh, wait, I can do that for myself!" and pointing to my hidden gun. I AM joking.....but I need a new job, or a better boss.)

I hear diverticulitis is quite painful!

So glad he has been treated and feels better! That's great.

Hi to all monkeys.

G. E. - I know somewhere there is a post from you that I did not reply to.
Hope you and yours are well. I expect your visit your in-laws is almost at it's end.
After being the hostess with the mostest, as I'm sure you've been, please take some special time for yourself.

4Donks - how are you doing?

Sister - hope you're enjoying your getaway and return refreshed. 

Cookie - how are you and hubs, grands and fur babies? 

Brandi - congrats on your hard work and your renewed improved health.  I know it's not easy to say no to biscuits and other treats.  Biscuits/scones are one of my favorite things , with butter!  I allow occasionally. 

Teyve - you've got more courage than I have in my little finger.  Enjoy your place in the wilderness.

Klaas - Sorry you have had to deal with Bell's palsy but glad to hear you are almost over it, it seems.

JSM -  ::MonkeySkate:: - how are you sweet pea?  always thinking and wishing the best for you.

Babs -  is that hot weather over with.  Hope you're finally able to muck about in your garden.

Muffy - ::buzzbee3:: - see you're still buzzin' around.  always good to see you.

Trimmy - said hello to you already.  can I have a biscuit, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeze!

babybear - hope you're still counting your blessings and enjoying the special person in your life.  Oh and does he have a friend for our sweet bear?   ::MonkeyJnBox::

texasmom - thanks for keeping us informed on the Dylan thread.   ::MonkeyAngel:: ::justice2nj2::

 ::justice2nj2:: ::justice2nj2:: ::MonkeyAngel:: ::MonkeyAngel:: ::justice2nj2:: ::justice2nj2::

Can my company left today. We had a wonderful visit.  I plan on sleeping late tomorrow. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Any update I can give on my family is not too positive I'm afraid.
What can I say that is positive?  Have seen daughter and family several times over the summer. Grandkids are enchanting, lively and smart.  They love the novelty of picking fruit and veggies from Nonno's garden.   They were up on ladders picking peaches a couple of weeks ago, Grandma holding on to them and the ladder for dear life.  Aidan, who is 4 wanted only the most perfect unblemished ones.  
Son was here for a nice visit. Took his Dad to his cottage for a few days.  Male bonding and all that good stuff.  
Also did some fun stuff with me and his Gran.
Hubs vertigo has been in remission for quite a while
My darling bro is very ill.  He has cancer in both lungs and the bladder removal surgery he had about one year ago has left scarring that has caused blockage in kidneys and ureter.  He will have a day surgery this week to relieve some of the pressure.  It's a stop gap measure and he requires major surgery to remove the scar tissue but not until he has lung surgery.
He was given two to four months a couple of weeks ago. The lung specialist and the bladder
specialist have consulted and have offered surgery.  He has decided to take his chances with the surgeries.  Not much of a choice is it.  Left lung first.  He desperately wanted to visit me for a week and tell our Mom - spend time with us.
He told me this is the only thing he had in his bucket list, as he put it, and now sadly he cannot come.
That is out of the question now, and we have arranged that since my Mom was already scheduled to visit me and stay overnight on Friday he will call her at my place so she is not alone after the news.  I will keep her here with us for as long as she wants to be here.
I can't imagine how devastating this will be for my Mom and I'm trying to prepare myself, will myself to have the strength to handle this. Afraid she will collapse.

Her husband has not adapted to the nursing home and has recently been moved to another floor.  She was called by a nurse today and asked to come today to see if she could get him away from the door where he stands trying to get out.(locked unit)   She lives out of town and I am the only source to take her there. Mom called very upset and I called the Dir. of Care and told her if my Mother could manage him, he would still be at home with her.  His nature is to be very oppositional. In short, it's a hot mess.
His own daughter took him out of the facility for a three day visit @ her home.  She could not manage him and returned him to the facility the same day.

Ending on the positive note that thankfully, hubs is very supportive and he loves my brother, like a brother.









Can Prayers for you, your brother & mother. It's so hard sometimes to keep moving forward when life throws rocks at us. I truly am sorry to hear about your brother.  ::MonkeyKiss:: Prayers  for your mom when she talks with your brother. So glad you figured out a way to be there for her when she speaks to him. That she decides to stay longer with you. I am sure your mom is upset about her husband being in the care facility.  It is really hard when our lived ones have to go to them and accept that it's the best place for them to get the proper care they need. ::MonkeyAngel::

Hi all.
Hubs is home recovering from diverticulitis surgery on Monday. He is doing so well. He says he feels better than he has in years, even after his operation. I am enjoying him being home.

Hope everyone is doing well. Catching up on posts.

Oh Wow, Cookie!  Sorry to hear he had to have surgery, but very happy to hear he feels so much better.  You must be a wonderful nurse!

Good for you, GE! Normal is good.

We are having all 3 grands this weekend, the Mister doesn't know about it yet, and they are bringing their dog. Good thing all three dogs get along. Now all I have to do is clean this darn mess of a house up, and we're set. Sweet DIL bought all kinds of frozen food, so I don't have to cook. She EVEN bought (get this!) FROZEN PANCAKES!!!  I am so beat already (we're 2 people down in the office this week, guess who gets to do everyone else's work?) I don't know how I'll make it thru. Oh well, if things get bad, we'll go out to the cottage and I'll have them plant daffodils by the hundreds for me!!  ::MonkeyJnBox::

(Oh, work is so bad that I'm making jokes about "just shoot me now..oh, wait, I can do that for myself!" and pointing to my hidden gun. I AM joking.....but I need a new job, or a better boss.)

     ::MonkeyShovel::

Sounds like fun or a disaster, one or the other!

One thing I would like to suggest, and please excuse me for using your post GE, is when you have made a mistake, don't keep quoting the mistake, because then there are multiple mistakes and the more mistakes, the harder it is to fix. 

People understood what you meant after a while, so this really didn't have to be fixed, but due to the sensitive nature of the post, I did not want anyone who may have picked up the post without reading Can's post to be confused.  Although God knows who you mean, we like to pray for the right people.

Hi

Here's all the GOOD news.
Thrush is finally gone.
Mucous membrane in mouth and throat almost 100% back to normal so I can swallow.
Will not need bone grafts in my jaw.
Thyroid tests OK (still have to be tested for the next 2 years).
White blood counts almost normal.
This last month I gained back 3 lbs.
Still have to be scoped monthly for the next year.
Voice is still here just a little odd.

Donks and dogs are doing great but a lot of the fields look like heII and I've just got permission to resume using the tractors and equipment.

Tevye....Your cabin sounds wonderful.
Sister....Hope your mountain trip left you well rested.
Brandy....So great to see your artwork back.
Trimm.....Still need to gain 20+ lbs so I could use some of those biscuits.
Green Eyes... Sounds like you've had a great family summer.

Even though I haven't been posting, I read and keep up with you. Once again thanks for all your prayers and thoughts.

Hi

Here's all the GOOD news.
Thrush is finally gone.
Mucous membrane in mouth and throat almost 100% back to normal so I can swallow.
Will not need bone grafts in my jaw.
Thyroid tests OK (still have to be tested for the next 2 years).
White blood counts almost normal.
This last month I gained back 3 lbs.
Still have to be scoped monthly for the next year.
Voice is still here just a little odd.

Donks and dogs are doing great but a lot of the fields look like heII and I've just got permission to resume using the tractors and equipment.

Tevye....Your cabin sounds wonderful.
Sister....Hope your mountain trip left you well rested.
Brandy....So great to see your artwork back.
Trimm.....Still need to gain 20+ lbs so I could use some of those biscuits.
Green Eyes... Sounds like you've had a great family summer.

Hi all.
Hubs is home recovering from diverticulitis surgery on Monday. He is doing so well. He says he feels better than he has in years, even after his operation. I am enjoying him being home.

Hope everyone is doing well. Catching up on posts.

Great news about your hubs feeling better than he has in years.  So nice you are enjoying him being home.  He sounds like a great patient.

Hi Monkeys!

Babs - Hope it is not still in the 90's.  I've had to have the heat on here!

G. E.  So glad you enjoyed your visit.  Now pamper yourself a bit, you hear!  Thanks for your
          prayers. 

Brandi - Thank you for thinking of us.

Bearly -  Our nursing homes seem very limited as to what they can do.  They have prescribed an anti-anxiety medication but he refuses his medications most of the time.  Same with the food as he thinks "they" are putting things in his food to keep him sedate him.

              Appreciate your prayers.   ::MonkeyHeart::

Sister -  Glad to hear you are feeling better.  Will watch for your news about your recent trip.

Northern Rose - How nice to see you.  Hope you and yours are well. 

4 Donks - Great to hear that you can swallow again and that you put on three pounds.  Continued progress and good health. 

Hope I haven't forgotten anyone. 

My bro had a procedure on his kidneys Friday.  He had a nephrostomy on both kidneys.  He was unaware when he went for a 'procedure' to drain his kidneys that he would have two bags.  SIL was present also when the procedure to drain the kidneys was explained to them and they are stunned they missed that part.   Back to nurses making home visits.
We will take my Mom to him on Sunday for two or three days, if he's well enough. Still no date certain for lung surgery.

Blessings to all.   ::MonkeyAngel::

Welp, I am on my way out to get a hair consultation for a new hairstyle.

Been wearing my hair twisted up with a barrette in the back way too long.

Seems it has created a breakage problem, and with my (now low-density) hair, I don't need that! Looking for a medium cut with side-swept bangs like I used to have. Maybe a graduated bob with length in front.

We'll see what the stylist suggests.

Oh! Want to share about a great conditioning mask I used yesterday! It's super .. made my hair less tangle-y and very soft and I think less breakage! It's called L'Oreal Power Moisture Moisture Rush Mask. Smells great too. Just use it after shampoo, leave it in for 5 minutes or so, and rinse. Did wonders for my dry-ish tangly prone-to-break hair in one use!

So Brandi what hair style did you decide on?  I had my hair cut short about a year & half ago. I loved it but my kids hated it. ::MonkeyHaHa:: They had never seen me with short hair. But I have been thinking about going and getting it cut again. It was so much easier with it short.  I have used Nixion for a couple years and it has helped with the hair lose.  And I don't work for them either. ::MonkeyHaHa::

Yes.  I understand.  Sometimes it helps if my Dad if they give him a sip of something before he takes his meds or if they give him some ice cream.  One nurse told me when he starts refusing his meds it is near the end.  Well, that was a year or so ago.  One time I asked him if he wanted fruit.  As I leave, the nurse comes in with his meds in applesauce.  First, he hates this, he would rather take it and not have it in applesauce, Second, he thought that was the fruit and was trying to say he wanted the fruit cup I give him.  So, sometimes it is a matter of something that is real.  The one nurse will say, your daughter wants you to take this.  Then he does it right away.   

The food looks terrible.  I take him to the cafeteria and get him real food that is soft to chew.  He eats it.  He also likes to pause for a while after he has eaten so much, then when he is ready, he will start again.  When he is in the lunch room with the aides, they won't let him pause because they think that means he is stopping, so he closes his mouth when they try to feed him.  It is just knowing your patient and asking why they don't want to do certain things.  If they cannot communicate, first thing is to find a way they can communicate, like make a board with what they need or want on it.  Or make several boards one with body parts and maybe a picture of ouch.  There are many sites that have picture communication on them.  You can laminate the pictures, cut them up, and put them on a page that can be put in a communication book.  Make sure you get some verbs on the page that would match.  Fr example, when Cubby could not talk I used Boardmaker and got pictures of body parts, you can use real or Boardmaker pictures.  Then on the top row I put ouch, open wide, fell, and other verbs that you may need to tell someone about your body.  I also put a page with crayons, pencils, scissors, etc. then the words I need, please, etc on that page.  I must have made 20 or so pages.  The problem I had is that people asked to borrow so many of the things I made, that eventually they did not get returned.  I wish there was a job that helped people communicate.  I would love to do this for others as it really helped facilitate communication and made for many less misunderstandings. 

I would love to help people communicate.  I have been able to do this (facilitate communication) in my real life with people who don't speak a word of English.  I asked someone setting a table to get me a box from under the counter to put the rest of my sandwich in when the waitress was not available.  When she got back, she asked me where I got the box from.  I told her the man that was setting tables.  She said he doesn't speak a word of English.  I was so used to gesticulating that I had no idea he did not speak English because we were able to communicate so well.  Anyway if this is not the problem, I hope you find a solution soon.  Is there anyone he totally trusts that could help him out?  Like I do for my Dad, even when I am not there?  If they say, "Can's Mom wants you to take this."  Will that help?  Wish I lived closer.  I am sure you have done everything you can think of.  Unfortunately, it comes along with many of the diseases.

So sorry, my friend, for your Mom and your family.  I know you all worry about her and your brother.

When I was engaged, his Mom had a tube coming out of her back that I had to remove the bandage, clean around the port, irrigate it, and then re-bandage it every 2 days.  When she went to her DIL's house, the port would get infected and she would end up in the hospital.  This DIL was "too busy" to do it every 2 days.  She worked in the hospital drawing blood and was a supervisor in the lab.  One would think she would take great care of it since she knew of the consequences of bacteria, etc.  It used to drive me nuts, so I told her to just stay at our house and she did.  There were no more infections.  Is this what you are talking about that needs to be done?  Is he okay with that being done?  If not can your SIL learn how to do it once in a while until he gets used to their procedures?  

You, your brother, and your Mom and her husband are in my prayers.  I know you are giving it your all, especially Mom.

Today is the block party at my Dad's.  I promised a friend that I would go and watch her Zumba class.  Gotta run.  Take care.   I really wish I could help you out.

That reminds me of the first real job I had when I was 16.  I worked in a Sporting Goods Store.  I was coloring my hair at the time.  When I filled out the application and it came to hair color, I wrote Golden Apricot.  That was the color on the bottle.  I already had the job, the application was just a formality.  I guess no one ever reviews the answers you write.

4 Donks, you rock! Way to kick it! I'm so happy for your good news  ::MonkeySlide::

I'm saying prayers for all the Monks (especially Trim..but just so I might get a biscuit). And I have lots of time, as last Friday, I was fired from my job. Not gonna pretty it up and say laid off, discharged, let go. Nope, I was flat out "leave your keys on your desk, get your stuff (and we'll have someone with you at all times to make sure you don't destroy/take anything) and get the hell out" fired. Ouch! That does leave a mark!

but, I am catching up on sorely needed sleep, like, 4 years of not enough sleep. I'm pretty sure I'm not bitter. I'm adjusting. There is only one person there that I'm mad at, and she didn't do the actual firing (but she so set it up!) so I will not speak of her (except to cast the virtual stink-eye her way!)

And the icing on the cake? Our 10 yr old grandson is staying with us while his parents work out of town. He has informed my that I no longer have an excuse to have such a messy room! I almost got grounded the other day because I hadn't worked in my room...was saved by the fact that I cleaned the kitchen and made supper!

I hope all that are sick are feeling better, all hair becomes stronger, and ya'll have a good weekend.

Well, just got home and I am so pleased! Getting all that long hair off me did wonders, and the gal who did my hair was great. The gal next to me working on another person said, "That took 10 years off of you!" Then my stylist said, "We should have taken a before and after shot." She's right.

I love it. She layered it and gave me back my side-swept bangs, and it looks full and like I have lots more hair. I'll be going back in 7 weeks to get it trimmed. Gonna try to keep this one maintained this time ;-)

Thanks for asking!

There is only one person there that I'm mad at, and she didn't do the actual firing (but she so set it up!) so I will not speak of her (except to cast the virtual stink-eye her way!)

And the icing on the cake? Our 10 yr old grandson is staying with us while his parents work out of town. He has informed my that I no longer have an excuse to have such a messy room! I almost got grounded the other day because I hadn't worked in my room...was saved by the fact that I cleaned the kitchen and made supper!

I hope all that are sick are feeling better, all hair becomes stronger, and ya'll have a good weekend.

Wow, Tevye! You have lots of changes heading your way, but as others have said, you are a survivor and a trooper. You will be fine. In fact, I think you will be better off, no matter what course your life takes now. I remember you were so happy with the job at first and lately, not so much. So this is a good thing, I think. Things will work out well for you. I will be thinking of oyu and waiting to hear of your next adventure!

Tevye...sorry u lost your job! Are u gonna look for another one or stay home?

Morning monkeys!

Brandi, let us know how your haircut looks.

Well, just got home and I am so pleased! Getting all that long hair off me did wonders, and the gal who did my hair was great. The gal next to me working on another person said, "That took 10 years off of you!" Then my stylist said, "We should have taken a before and after shot." She's right.

I love it. She layered it and gave me back my side-swept bangs, and it looks full and like I have lots more hair. I'll be going back in 7 weeks to get it trimmed. Gonna try to keep this one maintained this time ;-)

Thanks for asking!

Brandi your hair cut sounds really cute. Glad you are happy with it. I have been thinking of getting mine cut again. But can't decide to just cut it short or have it  styled and trimmed for the length it is now.  ::MonkeyEek::

Well, mine is short but not really looks short because of the front that has more length than the back. Very similar to this gal's: http://newleafhairstudio.blogspot.com/  ...Mine was as long as hers, but without as much density. And I got side-swept bangs which this gal didn't.

My point is, you can go short without going short, just medium. And it gives the appearance of length when it is kinda short/medium. (And it makes my hair (with layers) look much fuller and more dense!)

So I say, go for it! ;-)

Hope I am making sense. LOL

Yes you are making sense. LOL  I had my hair cut something like that a couple years ago. I liked it okay. But since my hair kind of curls when it's short I had to straighten it all the time. I have reached the age where if it's in my face it bugs me. So I had it cut short with sweep bangs. All I had to do is wash and wear. I loved it. It's now just pass my shoulders and really needs to be shaped and cut. Like you use to do I wear it pulled up all the time. When I do curl it it isn't long before I have it pulled back or up because it gets in my face. LOL

From a horrific car accident, Another young man in the car has died and man in the truck they hit died.  From what the report says the kids weren't wearing their seat belts.  Why do kids thing it wont happen to me. 2 others are in critical condition as well.  So very sad. Haven't been able to get a hold of my cousin.  ::MonkeyTears::

Thanks Babs for your help finding the info we did find.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this, Green Eyes.

I think I found an article about the accident near LA. So tragic.

I know what you mean about youth thinking bad things happen only to others. I felt that way a bit when I was younger. We have a neighbor across the street who lost a teenage brother to an accident where he was driving the night before his high school graduation. He hit a tree. He had no seat belt on either.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you can contact your cousin.

4 Donks, you rock! Way to kick it! I'm so happy for your good news  ::MonkeySlide::

I'm saying prayers for all the Monks (especially Trim..but just so I might get a biscuit). And I have lots of time, as last Friday, I was fired from my job. Not gonna pretty it up and say laid off, discharged, let go. Nope, I was flat out "leave your keys on your desk, get your stuff (and we'll have someone with you at all times to make sure you don't destroy/take anything) and get the hell out" fired. Ouch! That does leave a mark!

but, I am catching up on sorely needed sleep, like, 4 years of not enough sleep. I'm pretty sure I'm not bitter. I'm adjusting. There is only one person there that I'm mad at, and she didn't do the actual firing (but she so set it up!) so I will not speak of her (except to cast the virtual stink-eye her way!)

Sunny beach!  Do they know who you are?  I am sorry, Tevye that you almost got grounded, you better shape up.  As for your former employer, you obviously need to work for someone that has more discerning taste.  Did you have any hint that this was going to happen?  <Pause so I can throw a stink-eye her way also>.  If it helps, anyone I know who has found themselves in the situation you are in now ended up getting a better job than the former one.  Best of luck on your search for another desk to put your boots under.

Afternoon Monleys ::HelloKitty::  I just spent over an hour and a half getting tickets for youngest son to go to see George Strait in Feb. of next year in California.  ::MonkeyCool::  What started out as 70 bucks a seat ended up 125 a seat plus all the fees. These were in the nose bleed section. They went up to 1200 for on the floor.  ::MonkeyNoNo:: He has them and I will mail them out tomorrow.   ::MonkeyHaHa::  He called me from work and ask if I could do it. I can't believe they were almost sold out and they just went on sale at 8 California time.

Sorry about the firing but I am also sending the stink eye their way. You deserve a rest and doing something for yourself. My suggestion is taking grandson and going to the cabin and working on it at your leisure. The season is changing and will it be relaxing. Keeping you in my thoughts.

Son #2 (this grandson's dad) will be home this week. He has all kinds of plans on how to get the cabin ready so I can move there. I'm so proud of my boys and their willingness to help. And yeah, a break does sound awfully good.

You keep getting stronger.

Hi GE  ::HelloKitty::

Hope you are doing well.

Going to see my college daughter this weekend.  Gotta make tailgate food.

Hate to cook but love to eat.  Ha ha

Storm Karen headed to Alabama but hopefully it will just be lots of rain.  No wind.

I don't think any of us Alabama monkey  rednecks live near the coast, do you?

Have a nice weekend- got the dentist on Monday. ::MonkeyShocked::

Prayers to all Monkeys in need.   ::MonkeyAngel:: ::MonkeyAngel::

So many of you are going through transitions and may the Lord will be with you.  Some have lost dear family members, friends, and pets.  Some jobs.  Some health issues. 

I have not been posting much lately but I do read here often.  It's a great outlet for frustration and support, as we all need that at times in our lives.  I've met many wonderful monkeys here and even married one on a dare by Green Eyes, Babs, and Bearly.  Muffy refused to be be Maid of Honor, as I couldn't track dowm Dolce or Always 1.

Married life with JSM has been wonderful for the past 3 years (almost).  Respect and trust is foremost in any realtionship, as we have, and many of you do also.  So is a sense of humor (note to mods who haven't banned me recently).

I wish JSM would log in more often, when she's not restrained, and fill you in on her life and give you all words of encourangement and a listening ear (I was praciticng painting so I cut off one of her ears).

So.....  hope all are well.  Most stop posting as my dad just called that my mon busted her hip

How was your wonderful Texas weather today. We had lots of thunder & Lightening with wind & rain.  Lost power for a little bit while trying to cook dinner.  ::MonkeyEek::

Hey ya' CC!   :smt006  Say "hi" to JSM for me!  I'm glad to hear married life is agreeing with you.  I miss hearing about Patton and Ruby.  I'm sorry to hear your Mom hurt her hip.  I hope the doctors can help make her comfortable as she recovers.   ::buzzbee3::

I am hoping that is a new dance move, but I am afraid it's not.  I hope she heals quickly, CC.  I chased JSM all the way to Florida and appeared just as she was going down the aisle, but alas, I could not talk her out of it.  I was just in time for the speak now or forever hold your peace, but CC had hired 2 strong men to tape my mouth shut and tie my hands in case I texted her in the middle of the ceremony.

Sister, welcome back!

Cadi, I took my Mom to the dentist this week, she is a regular there.  I love to go to the dentist.  He has the world's greatest hygienist and I love catching up with her.  I hope you have a good experience as well.

Hello, Monkeys!

Hi Monkeys!

Babs - Hope it is not still in the 90's.  I've had to have the heat on here!

G. E.  So glad you enjoyed your visit.  Now pamper yourself a bit, you hear!  Thanks for your
          prayers. 

Brandi - Thank you for thinking of us.

Bearly -  Our nursing homes seem very limited as to what they can do.  They have prescribed an anti-anxiety medication but he refuses his medications most of the time.  Same with the food as he thinks "they" are putting things in his food to keep him sedate him.

              Appreciate your prayers.   ::MonkeyHeart::

Sister -  Glad to hear you are feeling better.  Will watch for your news about your recent trip.

Northern Rose - How nice to see you.  Hope you and yours are well. 

4 Donks - Great to hear that you can swallow again and that you put on three pounds.  Continued progress and good health. 

Hope I haven't forgotten anyone. 

My bro had a procedure on his kidneys Friday.  He had a nephrostomy on both kidneys.  He was unaware when he went for a 'procedure' to drain his kidneys that he would have two bags.  SIL was present also when the procedure to drain the kidneys was explained to them and they are stunned they missed that part.   Back to nurses making home visits.
We will take my Mom to him on Sunday for two or three days, if he's well enough. Still no date certain for lung surgery.

Blessings to all.   ::MonkeyAngel::












Yes.  I understand.  Sometimes it helps if my Dad if they give him a sip of something before he takes his meds or if they giv
