Welcome. This is called the insomnia thread, but we post 24/7/365. We call ourselves Owlettes :)

No nastiness, bullying, stalking or such allowed. I would like to keep the kind fabric of this thread intact.

Discussion will flow where it will as all threads do. This will be a happy place. I hope with lots of laughing. Talk of things, needs, rants as your mood or thoughts take you. Each person here has a history of helping others. Threads develop pseudo family groups. Fancy way to say we become like family. This family will have all the best a family has to offer, but none of the negatives.

I can't believe DS has lived in Japan for 19 years now. Went over the year he got his BA with intentions of staying for a year. Sas, girls live here in DC so they got in some good visits. The younguns did a cookout and we did the baseball game together. Hubby and I had the grandchildren for three nights. DD and her husband had the children the fourth night (they looked exhausted when they brought the kids back over here, LOL) so David and Toko got to have some quiet evenings together which was nice as they will celebrate being married 15 years in August. When they were in San Antonio, friends from the airbase David works at live there now so Toko and the children were able to get to see a few sights while he was at the conference.

Junie, thank you for asking about DH. All the activity from the visit took a toll on him. He is still very tired from it and they left a week ago. He wants to go out to lunch this week but I'm so gun shy now with his falling that I really don't want to take him anywhere other than to doctor appointments. If he would get out and walk up and down the block some each day, I might consider it.

Lover, sorry to hear you were in the rabbit hole. Hope you continue to do better. I miss you and your wonderful sense of humor when you go quiet. Hope your DD is doing better and the doctor can figure out what is going on.

Jaymeb, we didn't declaw our cats when we had them. One use to like to snuggle and knead me on my breast, go figure. I would put a pillow or some other padding between him and me when he did that. More and more vets are refusing to do it. Visit https://www.petmd.com/cat/care/7-negative-side-effects-declawing-your-cat for a very good article on the subject.

Waving hi to those I missed. Good night ladies, good morning Feline.

Kath, I tripped and fell in the rabbit hole because I lost my focus. I should know better the scheme of the Enemy. I am sorry about DH's situation and completely understand your concerns and fear. I wake up a few times in the middle of the night just to check on DD to make sure she is in bed rather than the floor passing out. I jump and yell out for her at any thump in our house. It's exhausting. I am hoping it was just a freak reaction to the Allegra she took at the time we had the scare. It's not supposed to cause dysthymia like Seldane per the maker, but you never know. She is getting an echocardiogram next week. She is losing weight without even trying. Sigh

I hope the doc can figure out what's wrong with your DH so that they can help him. Hopefully, he will help himself also. Very frustrating when our love ones don't listen. My mom is one.

Not a cat person so never knew what declawing involved. Yikes!

Here is a video I saw that made me laugh so hysterically at the reactions of the cats to durian. Remember the durian fruit and the story I shared awhile back? DD called me at work one day to tell me that she smelled gas in our garage and for me to check as soon as I get home. I freaked out because there were a few gas leak leading to explosions in California a few years prior. While PG & E guy was investigating, I found the culprit:


My DH's favorite fruit....taste like heaven and smells like #*%.

Loverly - I sure hope you are able to figure out what caused your DD's fainting spell, and losing weight without trying is also very scary. Praying!

The video of the cats was very funny, however in your post you said that the Durian smells awful, but tastes like heaven. Based of the video of the Americans trying Durian, I am seriously confused, since they both were gagging at the taste. What is your definition of "heavenly"?

Kathindc - Does your DH have a walker to help him navigate? 2 wheel or 4 wheel?

Well I have my appt. with the colon surgeon in the morning. Not sure what she'll suggest.

Last Sunday evening I was sitting on my patio reading a book and Kirby was sitting on the patio table watching the neighborhood. After a bit we came inside and I noticed that my lower legs were itching like crazy and thought how odd it was that the mosquito's bit me there this time rather than like they normally do on my back, shoulders, backside, etc. Well on Monday I was telling this to an acquaintance and he said "Those aren't mosquito bites, they're flea bites" Never in my life have I had a flea bite. Kirby has zero fleas, thankfully. Anyway, I went to the farm supply today and bought "Diatomaceous Earth" to sprinkle in my yard to kill the fleas. DE is an all natural, non-toxic way to kill pests in your home, on animals and in the yard. It is used by organic gardeners as well. This is all new to me! I swear if there is something to get into I manage to find it without even trying! Loopy

Sas - I apologize, I told you I'd call on Saturday and I got side-tracked and forgot. I will try to call this coming weekend. I have stuff all week this week. I hope you're doing well.

Okay, I guess that's all for now. I hope everyone is able have a peaceful sleep tonight.

Junie, keep us posted on what your surgeon has to say. Will keep you in my prayers.

DH has a walker with two wheels. Wish he would take short walks on the block to build up his strength. I have chariot duty in the morning. Have to get hubby to a doctor’s appointment. I think he wants to do lunch afterwards. I’m so leery about taking him anywhere now. Hmm, will have to look into the DE. There are some community cats in my neighborhood. I feed three and a neighbor feeds about four different ones. Hers will go into her kitchen to eat or for short visits. May not hurt to try and treat them. I say they are community cats because they will come around those they are familiar with and look for attention. Its been very interesting to watch them

Morning Feline. Nite, nite ladies.

Ah, we have opossums as well that live in the neighborhood. Was talking to a neighbor the other day. He has seen a raccoon. Haven't seen in it for a long time. Peregrine falcons nest at the Bascilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, a ten minute walk from my house. They are magnificent birds 🦅 to see in action. It’s interesting that the city has such wildlife. More so now than when I grew up (on the same block).

At my appt. with the colon surgeon yesterday she explained that the present day consensus (her words) among doctors today is that Diverticulitis is not caused by seeds getting lodged in the pouches in the colon, but rather due to our refined/processed foods, Obesity and NSAID use. Then after looking at my overall medical history, the amount of adhesion's I have from previous abdominal surgeries, etc. she described the actual procedure she'd perform if needed. Then she presented the risks & possible complications, such as ending up with an Iliostomy or colostomy (most likely temporary). After all of that I came away feeling that skipping surgery for this issue is what I will do for now. I wasn't thrilled with the idea of another surgery anyway. However, the idea of another attack scares the jeebers out of me too. I find it interesting though that this last bout was preceded by me eating a half of a piece of "Dave's Killer Bread" which is full of seeds.

On another note, it seems that after 2 injections of Xgeva, my vertebrae are hurting less, but I will talk with the neurosurgeon before I make a decision on that.

Ok, I need to get in the shower so I can get going and volunteer today. So have a great day everyone and a nice evening Feline!

Junie - I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis shortly after treatments were completed. They suspected it was from NASAID use for shoulder pain. Because of weight issues and wanting to get in shape I explored ever single diet going, all with very little results in weight or the UC. In desperation I went Paleo/Primal, no wheat, grains, legumes, processed food or white sugar. The weight fell off, and the best SE of all.... complete remission of the UC. It's been 3 years now and I’m still in complete remission...at my last colonoscopy my gastro said 'colon normal, whatever you're doing, keep it up'. I had completely healed. It might not have been the seeds but the wheat in the bread that caused your flare. It could be worth a shot dropping wheat and grains for a few weeks to see if it makes a diff. They are definitely inflammatories.I have several articles if you’re interested. Best of luck either way you decide! I’m sorry you’re having to make this decision, tummy issues suck!

Feline - That is so me! When I was volunteering today (I do data entry for a non-profit once a week) I was entering some forms and for each group I have a post-it on them with each step I do listed so I can check them off as I go. However, for some reason I didn't do that and when I finished that group I couldn't remember if I'd scanned these documents into the digital file. Hmmm! I had to go and ask the coordinator to check on her computer if it had been done, and yes it had. It's embarrassing. I HAVE to stick to my routines or I end up with total chaos. And this is just one example of my experience with chemo brain. I made a cheesecake this evening and found myself reading & re-reading the recipe to make sure I had put the correct amount of each ingredient in. The cheesecake looks good as it is cooling on the counter. Hope it tastes good too!

jaymeb - I flew to Spokane, WA in January 2017 to meet Kirby's breeder and bring my Kirbs home. He was 12 weeks old at the time. Hard to believe he's 19 mos already.

I went to court on April 29th for the hear them man enter his plea, but his attorney asked for a continuance and when I stood to make my statement the judge decided to continue the case until June 25th. The young man is out on bail and didn't seem at all fazed by any of this. The defendant is a transient, has no job, insurance, etc. and the bus company isn't required to carry personal injury coverage because they are owned by a public entity. So no there will be no compensation. At this point I will be glad to have Medicare cover my medical bills. Even the police are not liable, despite the fact that they were in a pursuit at the time of the accident. I just focus on that fact that my injury could have been far greater, so I thank God for that blessing.

Egads - I have considered the Paleo option, but Palliative Care told me it would be unhealthy for me. However, I will look into it again. Thanks! Also, I am so glad you have had such great results.

Ok, ladies, it is now 3:02 a.m. and I am going to go to bed. I hope you all have a great night and I will check back later.

Junie, and Egads. The summer of 2015 I studied the microbiome. One section was on the effect of the gut microbiome and insulin resistance and Leaky gut syndrome. The studies lead me to the meiditerranean,(sic) diet and the paleo diet. More so the paleo diet. I looked at the paleo diet. It was very supportive of the gut health and improving the bodies use of insulin. Very healthy.

I didn't do it b/c I would have to give up my wine(no). The suggested alcohol was Hard Cider.

Actually, the paleo diet that is so supportive of gut health, helps the brain. A happy well balance Biome in the gut isgood for the entire organism(us) hahaha

I was full of piss and vinegar this morning. I'm guessing the mods are having a discussion as to what to do. They censored something of mine in the science section. Of course, I wasn't happy. Today working on something else, I decided to shake the rafters a bit. I know they are meeting b/c they haven't allowed it to be posted yet.

Take a look here https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/73/topics...

The real point of todays posts are censorship.

When they originally deleted the two posts back in Oct 2017, they said by PM that it wasn't appropriate to BCO. I said then all non direct BCO posts were inappropriate. All social threads, jokes threads, gardening, sewing, cooking, Anything non BC was not appropriate to the BCO work. Of course, they didn't see it that way.

There are other threads on the science thread that deal with non BCO items. It's called cherry picking.

Well, almost, Seriously dislike censorship based on cherry picking what is perceived as value or belief.

Cherry picking ------------choosing what meets your perceived need or belief-----or action

Example. Mags.......BP-- her nurse chose which BP to act on....... but didn't record the first one. 2nd one well within normal limits. Looks like normal. Dunno, Previous day Bp had a higher than normal Diastolic. Unusual with the drug she's on. Could be a signal that the heart is working under duress EVEN with the drug. NURSE did not record the BP. I could explain lot's of particulars of who what when where why in discerning this. What is not right is the non recording of a finding. You record the finding and the circumstance. We don't get to choose findings that we agree with or make our lives easier.

In the case of the nurse, NOT a legitimate reason to not record the initial BP when a patient has a cardiovascular history.

Not the nurses choice Not the nurses choice.

The appropriate recording would have been a description of pre-activity to the first finding and the at rest period and then the second finding. Transmits total activity and response.

To all------Mags found a BP machine by Omron that has an App that records BP& P to a chart and tracts it. This is very good. I highly recommend this feature. Reason is your own personal tracking and recently noted Mags nurse didn't record appropriate info.

By history Omron has been the leader in technology for BP equipment for the consumer. I tracked them since 2004 through Consumer Report. Guessing that was the year, as that was DH was disabled. The key is that they were industry leaders.

Walmart bought the rights to the innards of the Omron technology. The Walmart Brand is Reli-On. It's half the price of the Omron brand with the same reliability. That's why Consumer Reports gave it's Best Buy logo.

BUT BUT BUT we are now into a new market. Mags just bought a new Omron machine that has an App that allows her phone to log her vital signs and graph and such. Email to doc. This is new-------------hahah at least to me.

So , if you are in the market for a new BP machine. BUY the one with bells and whistles. That will last into the future for awhile.
