Just More Nothing

I have been sick for the last 4 days!!! In bed...stomach pain, afraid it was another obstruction and I would need surgery and did not want it, and who could I call, have no friends, I am friendless and as you can see feeling very sorry for my sad, sad self.... I do have great friends, but you know you can't impose for some things and thoughts, that is what a blog is for, haha
I just get that way and do nothing at all, no watering, or meals or anything, , hardly watch tv, no reading....  Luci LOVES it, I swear she could just lay there with me, she has my full attention and am right there, THEN it went away.. just like that.  I did call the doctor and they finally called back (yes, I know I am not the only person in the world, well I mostly know that!) They think it is a ulcer, based on all I told them, and have new meds.  But I think I have also gotten another uti.  but I lost 5#.. don't know if that is good or bad, as doc wanted me to gain weight, but I was not really happy with the gain, so am working on that, since I have been on a purge, so to say. It was a good start. I basically did not eat at all these days, but kept hydrated and 'things' seemed to keep working, where b4 they were not at ALL, so in the back of my mind I knew it was not an obstruction as b4.  BUT the fear was numbing and paralyzing.
Today, I watered, picked poop, did laundry of bedding and went to the Fair here in Redmond. Always a big 'do' and got in free as I am a veteran!!! Was fun talking to those 'old' veterans, unfortunately I fear they are MY age!!!! It was fun, just walked around slowly with my bottle of water, had a hand dipped corn dog, that ate about a third of.  There was lots to see, but did not get to the animals.  Got  me a Cutco paring knife and kitchen shears (if you do not know about Cutco, you need to look them up and investigate, wonderful knives!!!!) the rep is coming to my house to sharpen what I have, all four of them, should not take him long :) they do this FREE and there is a FOREVER guarantee if anything happens to them, I have a cheese knife that the knife part comes out of the handle and he gave me the address to send it back to the company and they will send me a NEW one!!!! Saying all of that, they are NOT cheap- so they better replace it!!! Right!!! Also got 2 signs to pound in the ground, advising people to "SLOW DOWN this is OUR neighborhood" people go around that corner where I live like it is a race track sometimes, altho I have to say, they sure do slow down when I am out there weeding right next to the road, at least they are wary of the old fragile white haired lady almost in the road!!!!!
Came home and fixed one of my mother's old recipes, Chinese hamburger and rice, Brian was not too impressed and is going to be appalled when I make him eat it again tomorrow!!! He gets the brunt of finishing off things I fix, especially if it make tons, as my portion is about a cup and then I am done, that leaves a lot of left overs.... but eventually- garbage disposals are a wonder and don't know what I would do without one!!!!

See, a lot of nothing..

Take Care All and God Bless

p.s.  the weather has gotten really nice, 80's was even able to turn off the fans, they do get on ones nerves after awhile, we sat outside tonight, talking, there was a nice breeze, not cold at all, really quite wonderful


  1. Sorry to hear you had such a terrible scare. Thought I'm not sure an ulcer is a better thing. Skitz loves it when I sit in the recliner and do nothing except love on her. I'm sure Brian will survive having to eat your rice one more time. Luci would love to help you finish it off.

  2. Sorry to hear about you not being well. But at least you are feeling better and did get out and walk about. Weather sounds wonderful

  3. I sometimes feel friendless and all alone myself. I have to cut it short because it can turn into a pity party7 really quick! I hope you are feeling much better by now.

  4. Glad to hear your tummy crisis is past. I have been struggling so long with ears, I have given up hope of being 100% anymore. Miss you.
