Tim is doing great! No need for the operation, or so the surgeon judged. Too small a dent. Stitches out, and things are looking a lot better. The eye is good. The mouth isn't, but they don't want to operate on the scar tissue yet. they first let the body do its healing thing. Maybe in 3 or 6 months.
1:45 am
rururocks


whoa .. what happened sprite.. is this your son?
1:46 am
Lizlin

Happy no need for an op.
1:46 am

1:47 am
Lizlin

And is he able to eat a bit now?
1:47 am
sprite

yes, my son was in an accident. Broken cheekbone, torn lip and eye, lots of bruises. But all has turned out much better than it first looked. He is healing up very well. Even the concussion doesn't bother him much anymore.
1:48 am
sprite

he is, Liz, on both counts. And now that he can eat again, his mood has improved too. Also almost no pain anymore.
1:48 am
Lizlin

That's really good news.

1:51 am

1:59 am
dizgrannie

Flos, google it - it can be an interesting game
1:59 am
sprite

I have seen it and didn't understand the first thing about it. But enough to know it isn't usually a sport that has many fatal injuries. A really dark moment for the sport.
2:00 am
Lizlin

Yes, flosey. The ball hit him behind the ear, under the helmet.
2:00 am
dizgrannie

very true, Sprite
2:00 am

3:02 am
grannyrose

*giggle* several times....
3:02 am

the surgeon decided against it, rose :) The dent is not deep enough to make it worth the effort. Surgery could even make it worse, they said.

3:04 am

only cucumber here was in my salad at lunch time...lol. it's not too bad, just a tad warm.

3:04 am

aloe vera is good too, if you can find it there.
3:05 am
grannyrose

always a good sign when they start to eat again. is his nose cold and wet too?
3:05 am

they are very happy with how his eye turned out. Not so much with the mouth. But they want to wait with fixing it until it is healed up properly... 3 or 6 months from now, if it is still necessary by then.
3:05 am
sprite

haven't checked, rose, but he is wagging his tail :P
3:07 am

3:12 am

He seems unhurt, at least nothing broken or bleeding but he's walking very funny.
3:56 am

I so wish you could have him admitted to a nursing home, ruby. This is getting way too much for one woman to handle, no matter how spunky she is.
3:56 am
grannyrose

oh, ruby....it sounds like a stroke ruby. is one side of his face sort of not moving.
3:58 am
rubyfoo

Since he can't hear or understand French, he couldn't manage in a nursing home. I think it was another TIA
3:58 am

I have to be off, alas. *hugs* to you both. All the best for you and Burt, ruby. And rose, see you tomorrow :)

Why do web site designers make it so that a video and dozens of animated gif's INSTANTLY start up the SECOND you go to their site?

Let the visitor choose whether to start the video up and keep the animated gif's and flashing banner/pop-up ads down to a dull roar!... ok rant over:)

and now it is time for Crossy's tidbit of the other day! This goes under the category of thank God I do not live there!.. In Siberia the other day it was minus 50 celcius and there was a domestic flight due to take off at a small airport , but there was one problem; the grease had frozen in the landing gear, and the wheels would not turn! So, they did the only sensible thing, they got two dozen passangers, got them outside, 12 to a wing and had them push the airplane to get it unstuck. They managed to take off and the trip went without further issues.

Burt fell this AM, in the street before light, and, although he's OK, the idea that he was that confused is horrible
6:30 am
crosshair

The local french populace does not come across as being very warm and fuzzy, cold, aloof and snooty seem to fit better:(
6:30 am
rubyfoo

I think he somehow let the dogs out but, when he felo, they came back and stayed with him.
6:31 am

My father suffers from confabulation. His is due to Korsakoff's Syndrome. it is hard on famlies:(
6:31 am
rubyfoo

and some stranger helped him back to the house
6:31 am
rubyfoo

I will goggle Korsakoff's syndraome
6:32 am
rubyfoo

when I got up at 8 he was lying on the floor in the living room and I couldn't even pick him up
6:32 am

You need help, ruby. In-home nursing at the very least:(
6:33 am
crosshair

You cannot do it all on your own
6:33 am
rubyfoo

His daughter is coming next week and she will help me figure things out
6:33 am
crosshair

That is well.
6:33 am
rubyfoo

I have a housekeeper who comes 4 mornings for 4 hrs and then comes inbetween to make a fire. She helped me get him up and thenwalked the dogs with me
6:34 am
crosshair

That is good. Do not want to think of you all alone in this.
6:35 am
rubyfoo

I couldn't even take care of this house alone. And now with B's decline, it would be impossible
6:35 am
crosshair

do they have V.O.N there?
6:36 am
rubyfoo

what is that? We're not part of the healthcare system
6:36 am
crosshair

It is a in-home nursing group
6:37 am
crosshair

And your family Dr may have some ideas.
6:37 am
rubyfoo

He doesn'tquite need that, yet. And I could certainly get a nurse if I pay for one, but the question would remain "How many hours.day" etc.
6:38 am
rubyfoo

But I certainly would not do "personal care" myself. NW! whatever that means
6:40 am
rubyfoo

I'm no martyr, merely prasgmatic

new word for me:)
6:49 am

I don'tknow what you make the necklact of; no wonder the vampires keep following me around
6:50 am

something you mince up to put on pizza
6:50 am

comes in cloves
6:50 am
rubyfoo

aah
6:51 am

got the ending but porker???
6:51 am
crosshair

I buy it in three styles, we use it so much around here; in paste, dehydrated in chunks, and in fine powder form
6:51 am
crosshair

oh, and whole cloves in olive oil. lasts forever that way
6:52 am
bichon

love the smell of cooking garlic
6:52 am
rubyfoo

at different times of year, we have different types of gfresh ga****. In Spring, it is wet and gren and purple - wmild and wonderful. But the stuff I bought in the US was never this good
6:53 am
bichon

everything tastes better in France
6:53 am
rubyfoo

half and I'm going to lie down. Maybe if I put some ga**** around my neck, my husband will stay away.....
6:53 am
rubyfoo

no, just the vegetables lol
6:54 am
bichon

probably the fruit too
6:55 am
rubyfoo

yes, when it's local. Unfortunately, now they bring it from Sou America
6:56 am
rubyfoo

It used to me that you got asparagus only in May peaches in June, etc. No, vegetasbbles and fruit can come from all over.
6:56 am
bichon

Yes, we get so many imports of produce from SA
6:56 am
rubyfoo

Now*
6:56 am
crosshair

I love the minced ga6 in olive oil in jars. You get almost 50 cloves jammed in there for under 5 dollars and it is great for stir-fry's, just plop a tablespoon full in the wok and away you go;)
6:56 am
rubyfoo

but SA to US is not quit as bad as far as cost of shipping and carbon footprint.
6:57 am
rubyfoo

The only thing I buy from so far away is blueberries for husband's eyes
6:57 am
crosshair

his eyes??
6:57 am
bichon

blueberries, we get local because the New England soid is so acid
6:57 am
bichon

*soil
6:58 am
rubyfoo

yes, blueberries evidently have some special substance for eyes (learned from his fancy ophthalmologist). And Burt has multiple eye problems
6:58 am
crosshair

mm, I did not know that they had qualities to aid with vision:)
6:59 am
crosshair

Learn something new every day:))
6:59 am
rubyfoo

There's a medication for eyes called Myrtaven (myrt = blueberries) but it's not available in France, hence, blueberries every day
7:00 am
bichon

what exactly does it help with?
7:00 am
rubyfoo

I think glaucoma, mostly. He used drops, too
7:01 am
rubyfoo

He has had cataracts anterior cataracts, a detached retina, non-functional tear ducts and, now, glaucoma. It is amazing that he can see at all!
7:04 am

9:32 am
MollyL

Ivesy, I walked this path with my Dad and it's tough. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
9:32 am
ivesy3

9:32 am
Judi

Hubby's mom has been in nursing home for a few months now. Sound mind, but she kept falling. She is doing well in nursing home. Blood sugar regulated finally regulated after she had been neglecting to eat, etc.
9:32 am
MollyL

It is a cruel disease.
9:32 am
mkg

ives, my mom had this too and once she settled into the home, she was actually quite happy. she loved her "room" and told me her bed was the best in the world. when i arrived she would say "dont i know you? arent you my family?" and then she would ask "are you my mother? my sister?" and then i would tell her i was her daughter and she would say "oh my, i didnt know i had such a beautiful daughter." i would hug her then. so to me she wasnt suffering. she was content. and so was i. i saw her every day at 5 pm. and stayed one hour. and we would sometimes just lie on her bed in a hug.
9:33 am
maggiej

Happy Thanksgiving all.
9:33 am
mkg

at least she wasnt in pain. and so for me this was better than my relatives who died of horrible cancer. i felt her brain was the age of maybe a 3 or 4 year old. so it was not so terrible.
9:33 am
mkg

sorry to write so much.
9:34 am
mixi6

my Dad always knew who I was, but after an adjustment period, seemed happy as long as he had a couple of quarters in his pocket for bus money.
9:34 am
MollyL

Judi, your pal Hello Kitty just floated down the parade route
9:35 am
mkg

if they are happy and smile when you arrive, that is all i ask. and no pain. please no pain. pain is horrible.
9:35 am
Judi

Air head kitty! Don't watch the parade. Too busy sleeping, then drinking coffee & Babbling.
9:35 am
mkg

9:35 am
Judi

Cats terrorizing the house. The chase is on...
9:36 am
Judi

Ou9 x 2. Ro9. Pi9.
9:36 am
MollyL

Sadly (due to being the mother of 3) I can do several things at once.

Ivesy I am going through this with my husband. I miss him and he doesn't know me but he is so content. That makes it easier.
9:38 am
MollyL

It's always nice to get the y-chromos in the kitchen
9:38 am
Judi

We are going out to a local resturant. No cooking or cleaning up!
9:39 am
ivesy3

9:39 am
mixi6

my husband volunteered me to cook dinner at his mothers. I've never made thanksgiving dinner. This is the first thanksgiving with him since we got married 14 years ago.
9:40 am
Judi

LOL! No pressure, mixi!
9:40 am
mixi6

9:40 am
ivesy3

im not much of a cook...everything is pre done..potatoes..(whipped) .frozen veggies.and frozen desert.
9:41 am
Judi

The cook gets to call the shots. Miracles have been made with far less.
9:45 am
Judi

The first Thanskgiving after my mother passed away, my father decided he would be cooking turkey loaf. I was mortified. Of course, I was 13 then, so everything mortified me.
9:46 am
rururocks

turkeys tend not to do much anyway judi
9:46 am
rururocks

OH.. "cooking" turkey loaf
9:47 am
Judi

Ha. Ha. I'm still mortified by turkey loaf. It looked like a football.
9:47 am
rururocks

probably tasted like one too
9:48 am
rururocks

<---this y chrome.. knows his way around a kitchen
9:48 am
Judi

I remember it being very salty and rubbery. Blech.
9:48 am
rururocks

ugh
9:48 am
rururocks

salt for sure in those things
9:49 am
rururocks

I have to peel a bunch of carrots is all
9:50 am
MollyL

The only thing worse than turkey loaf is that veggie loaf
9:50 am
rururocks

I am making one dish
9:50 am
Judi

Never had the veggie loaf. Plan to keep it that way.
9:50 am
rururocks

double ugh
9:51 am
MollyL

Ru, you are the exceptional y-chromo when it comes to the kitchen.
9:51 am
Judi

So a-peeling in a man.
9:51 am
rururocks

it just isn't thanksgiving without some dead bird on the table
9:51 am
rururocks

fit to a TT judi
9:52 am
MollyL

I've seen some really lame turkey sculptures made out of vegetables.
9:52 am
Judi

Cry fowl and let the wings be torn asunder!
9:52 am

You folks are making me HUNGRY! I missed not having turkey for thanksgiving this year...enjoy!

Judi

Same as the other 9, just a different 4th letter.
9:56 am
MLFAN17

yes in our area a local restaurant has a meal you can buy. If you go into the restaurant its only a plate of food and thats it.. this way we have leftovers
9:57 am
MLFAN17

ah ty judi
9:57 am
rururocks

ah.. that's good mlf.. easy peasy
9:58 am
Judi

Off to get a little house cleaning done. *POOF*
9:58 am
MollyL

Lots of places make the whole dinner, Thanksgiving in a box if you will.
9:58 am
MLFAN17

yes and since its only two of us what is the point to cooking
9:58 am
MLFAN17

or boxes Molly
9:58 am
rururocks

10:04 am
MLFAN17

has anyone seen pink lately?
10:06 am
MollyL

I am a festive person at heart. I would cook, even if it was just me. As it is, our celebration got canceled so I am just cooking for two this year.
10:07 am
MLFAN17

i am festive at heart as well but hubby and i dont do much for a lot of the holidays
10:12 am
MollyL

KISS in the Macy's parade. You gotta love that.

10:13 am
rururocks

oh god > I hope simmons doesn't lick the balloons
10:14 am
rururocks

what happened Molly
10:15 am
MollyL

My kids were supposed to have Thanksgiving at their house, but my daughter in law was hospitalized with a Crohn's flare up. So...Plan B
10:15 am
rururocks

oh bummer.. that's really painful
10:15 am
rururocks

wow.. that's a really bad problem to deal with
10:17 am
MollyL

It seems to be the never ending story for them. I feel bad for my son, he was looking forward to playing host.
10:19 am
rururocks

it's a really tough one to control.. I have a friend that has it.. and they are constantly in pain and have to be so very careful about everything.. i'm sorry
10:20 am
rururocks

she.. not they
10:20 am
rururocks

I need more coffee
10:21 am
MollyL

Well, we do the best we can, as a family, to work around it. This year, apparently, Thanksgiving was not meant to be. We will make up for it at Christmas.
10:22 am
rururocks

yeah..I hear that.. that's all you can do. Do they live far away from you?
10:22 am
MollyL

No, half hour or so.
10:23 am
rururocks

oh.. that's good
10:24 am
rururocks

nothing like being in a hospital for the holidays
10:25 am
MollyL

I did that one Thanksgiving with my oldest. Suspected appendicitis. Turned out it wasn't, but we spent Thanksgiving night in the hospital. Very gloomy place to be.
10:25 am
rururocks

yeah.. been there done that with another relative once
10:26 am
rururocks

no one wants to be there.. the doctors, the nurses, etc.. and especially the patients
10:26 am
MollyL

It helps to have a sense of humor when stuff like that happens. : D
10:26 am
rururocks

I've managed to never stay in a hospital ever in my life so far
10:29 am
MollyL

*Blesses self, knocks on wood, goes outside turns around three times and spits*
10:30 am
rururocks

you too?
10:31 am
MollyL

Oh no, that was for you. Childbirth brought me to the hospital three times.
10:32 am
rururocks

oh I wondered about that
10:32 am
rururocks

Thought you had one of those do at home in the bathtub kind of things
10:33 am
rururocks

:D
10:33 am
MollyL

No, I did natural childbirth twice, but had the good sense to do that in a hospital in case anything went wrong.
10:33 am
rururocks

smart
10:34 am
MollyL

And after having an epidural the third time, I'm all for anything that reduces the discomfort of childbirth.
10:35 am
rururocks

I can't even imagine how tough it is. It's a really incredible thing that women can do that
10:35 am
dan2bit

Makes you wonder how humanity has survived so long
10:36 am
MollyL

No shit 2Bit. And why women have more than one child.
10:36 am
rururocks

well.. if it were up to men dan.. it would certainly be another story.. the dinosaurs would still be around
10:36 am
dan2bit

hahaha ruru. Though I am a man, I've come to firmly believe in labor amnesia
10:37 am
MollyL

Labor amnesia is the ONLY explanation for why women go through that more than once.
10:37 am
rururocks

no kidding.. can you imagine what makes a woman like mrs. duggar tick?
10:41 am
MollyL

Insanity
10:42 am

*family channel commentary*
10:42 am

wonder if their ratings will keep up with their kids screwing in church?
10:43 am

Strangely enough, there are RABID Duggar fans who surface every time someone comments on the weirdness of that family on a message board.

The no8 words both start with "isn't" prefix. One is plastic wrap that doesn't work (Car's clue) and the other describes someone with no principles.

Not at all interested, Molly, especially since I'm having a bout of neuritis in my head...feels like I'm being stabbed in the same spot every couple of minutes. This happens about twice a year...no one knows why..even had CT. Nothing alleviates it but vodka helps me not care. It will last a couple of days and then just go away.
12:02 pm
mixi6

yuck, glad it goes away.
12:03 pm
MimiCat

It's very distracting, to say the least, mixi. Can't really do too much when this happens. It's awful but apparently not dangerous...just a couple of nerves that misfire until they get "tired."
12:03 pm

Does anyone else really HATE this grid?!!

Hi, Lilli
2:58 pm
lilliann

Are you not feeling well Phan? Migraine?
2:58 pm
phandmd

can't breath. Afrin didn't even fix it.
2:58 pm
jaxx7

Phan is the pressure from a headache or your sinuses?
2:59 pm
lilliann

((jaxx)) Hi Hin :) how are you and how is your wrist/hand now?
2:59 pm
jaxx7

Try steaming
3:00 pm
lilliann

Sinus problems...that's not nice.I don't know what Afrin is.
3:00 pm
phandmd

Actually, I was going to do that, but that entails going upstairs...
3:00 pm
phandmd

Afrin is a nasal spray that opens up your nasal passages like magic
3:00 pm
phandmd

at least it usually does...
3:01 pm
lilliann

Steaming probably is best.Why upstairs? Use a kettle, bowl and tea towel
3:01 pm
sukee

Neti pot...
3:01 pm
phandmd

I tried that this morning, didn't help, and made my ears hurt. Not sure what the fuss is about.
3:01 pm
lilliann

Ah ok.
3:01 pm
lilliann

Hi Sukee. Neti pot?
3:02 pm
phandmd

So a neti pot is a sinus flushing system.
3:02 pm
sukee

I find they work for sinus problems. You mix a solution of salt water and pour it in your nostrils and let it pour out the other side.
3:02 pm
sukee

one nostril at a time
3:02 pm
phandmd

basically you pour water through your sinuses to clear them out. (it's not just water that's just the basic.
3:02 pm
lilliann

Ah ok.I've never heard of them.Do we get them here Jax?
3:04 pm
jaxx7

Get a towel or an umbrella and get your kettle steaming and either put the hot water in a bowl with or without vapour rub or allow steam to collect under the open umbrella. And breathe the steam in gently. Pop a towel over your head when using a bowl. Another alternative is Friar's Balsam in the hot water in the bowl (not the kettle obviously). I see you have tried that this morning but try with vapour rub or Friar's balsam. It works for croup, should work for you.
3:04 pm
lilliann

We call a netti(i don't know if spelling is right) a toilet up North...it was an outdoor loo
3:04 pm
sukee

LOL
3:05 pm

Jaxx, I am going to try that soon.

Matthew McConaughey looks weird to me these days. I used to think he was good looking.
3:35 pm

I wouldn't call him good looking, at least not in the roles he plays
3:36 pm

He worked for me in "A Time To Kill". Lately, he looks emaciated.

Anniebrook

Thanks.
3:40 pm
Soodle

I loved Matthew McConnaghy in the Pelican Brief.
3:41 pm
lilliann

It must be hard to lose that much weight when he wasn't exactly big to start with and then have to put it back on.I would think he would have to put it on slowly.
3:41 pm

5:01 pm
lilliann

Your skin will take months to heal as you had a really bad burn and as the good skin comes through it will itch.That may be to do with the cold of going out and then the heat of being inside?I don't think it's a major problem but if you're worried, contact your doctor or nurse at your surgery
5:04 pm
jaxx7

I have had enough of my doc's surgery to be honest. I had a well woman clinic and the blood tests showed up all sorts of things and I have to go back on Dec 5th for another set. the main one is an excess of calcium. I looked it up on the net, got as far as parathyroid cancer and decided not to look any further.
5:05 pm
lilliann

Well, it's good that atleast one has been.that is something to celebrate.Is there not something that can be done about his father not attending?
5:07 pm
jaxx7

He says there is no need because his older son isn't on the list as he's OK. However this angel has not gone back to school this school year and has started smoking cannabis, so it is only a matter of time before he is on there
5:08 pm
lilliann

Jaxx, you sound like my daughter.I had 3 weeks to live as i had ebola according to her as i had a bad cold and a few symptoms.Sod the net, as so many things have the same prognosis...just wait and see what the test results say and then go from there.There's no point in worrying until you know.Life is too short to worry about 'what if'!

5:21 pm
jaxx7

Little girls are the best
5:22 pm
lilliann

So what happened? She's have to have alot of months of unpaid tax before she gets arrested and she'd go to court and say that she hasn't got much money and would be happy to pay a fiver a month as that would be all she could pay
5:24 pm
jaxx7

Silly me thought about the meeting tomorrow and bailed her out yet again. I know I am soft but I can't cope with any more dramas. My next door neighbour the previous day had smoked a legal high anf ended up allergic to it and collapsed. Cue police, ambulance and panicked people.
5:24 pm
jaxx7

and even
5:25 pm
lilliann

Awww, that is great chrissie.That's what is great about computors/phones...you can skype, you may be missing out physically but atleast you can see her at the same time she smiles or laughs...that's better than photos we took years ago or even now...it's now time and something you will remember.
5:26 pm
jaxx7

It is thousands , Lilli. then they add their fees. they worked out a 'hardship' payment of Β£85 a month. Now she has decided the new house will have to go. Can I dig myself a big hole and sit in it letting it all go over my head?
5:27 pm
ChrissieDee

Thanks lilliann. You are right, it's so much easier today

It has to be bad when people want to take your belongings away and the thing is my dad was a policeman and said that they can't come in to your house without a court order

They buy the details from firms who take them off the electoral role or forms you have filled in.
5:52 pm
lilliann

I only answer my mobile when it is a number that the phone recognizes and it will tell me names that i have programmed in.I know it's not the same for people who just have a cheap mobile as in phone and text like my F.I.L
5:54 pm
Deeha

I think it should be made illegal to sell your details to other companies, It is an invasion of privacy
5:54 pm
lilliann

But if the number doesn't come in and you answer and you don't like what they are saying, just kill the call.
5:55 pm
Deeha

That is true I'll check more carefully next time I get a call. Luckily I am Billy No Mates so I don't get many!!
5:58 pm
jaxx7

When you fill in your electoral roll form before the general election make sure you ask to be put on the restricted list which the council don't allow firms to see.
5:58 pm
lilliann

I'm sick of getting phone calls from companies which people can't understand my accent,because they don't live here and i'm not being racist or predjudiced but i can't understand them either.
5:59 pm
jaxx7

Just keep on asking what did you say and they will soon get tired of repeating themselves.
5:59 pm

And that is not to say that they don't live in GB...before people complain...

Can someone please tell me what my icon picture is? Is it a white dog with a harness or a close up of a dog? I changed it and it shows up when I don't use Babble Expert but when I view Babble thru Expert it shows the old pic of the white dog.
6:59 pm
lilliann

The dog in your icon and then on your profile are different, which happens with me, but they aren't the same as coloured ears, so are they yours Luv?
7:00 pm
Scrabbler

Close-up of white dog with brown ears
7:00 pm
lilliann

We must have like minds Luv :)
7:00 pm

Sure. Lock her up til she's 25.

People seem to have a problem with icons showing up in Expert. The new icon shows up in regular Babble Luv.
7:13 pm
lilliann

I've never smoked weed, so i have no idea, sorry
7:13 pm
Scrabbler

The keys are to remain her parent and not her friend, to remain calm and in control (never show that she is making you upset or frustrated), to have clear expectations and consequences...
7:13 pm
LuvWordGames

is my clue helpful then lil?
7:13 pm
Scrabbler

Neither have I, so LWG' clue is better.
7:14 pm

7:15 pm

Night Luv, thanks and tc hin.
7:20 pm
lilliann

That sounds great advice Scrabs, until she is hormonal and wants to bite and kick and i can be as calm and nice as anyone.I think it is to do with her periods and she's a monster from hell!
7:22 pm
Scrabbler

Also, frequently validate that adolescence is difficult. And remind her that your focus is to prepare her for adulthood = respect, responsibility, kindness, independence, etc.
7:24 pm
lilliann

My husband spoke to a female doctor the other day when he had a medical and she will see her and thinks it's hormonal..as long as she doesn't need to take tablets as she won't even take a paracetamol for a headache.I think it is hormonal.She gets really bad headaches and cramps monthly like i did but she then gets really angry and bites and kicks and it's for a day or 2 before her period starts
7:25 pm
Scrabbler

Ibuprofen or naproxen are much more effective for cramps and she should start the med a day or two before she is due.
7:26 pm
lilliann

We have done that with her Scrab as in respect and kindness, etc and she is for anyoone else that she knows or meets , so i can't complain at that.Atleast i've brought her up right.
7:28 pm
Scrabbler

Very good. Keep up the good work. Teach her to be a leader and not a follower. Far too many teens are followers.
7:28 pm
lilliann

She won't take them.I've told her to and a doctor has told her to.She was on some tablets for migraines as she was getting them monthly and was suppose to take them but wouldn't.My daughter is such a pessimist, that she thinks that tablets will hurt her more.trouble is she looks on the internet and listens to people who talk to the bairns at school too much and they normally tell them the worst things.
7:31 pm
Scrabbler

Read medication info with her so she knows that the meds are safe in the correct doses at the correct intervals, and only for a few days each month too
7:31 pm
lilliann

The problem is, she will be a follower, as she has been bullied so much throughout the years because of her hair colour and will always listen to others as she just wants friends.She's only tough with me...hopefully she'll get tougher with others.
7:32 pm
lilliann

We've done that, but once she's heard it from Tom, Dick or Harry, it doesn't matter...she always thinks the worst is going to happen
7:34 pm
Scrabbler

Too bad.
7:34 pm
lilliann

Anyway, that is my bairn and i will ahve to make her more pro life like me and her dad.She was definitely born a Wednesdays child!Thanks for listening Scrabs.
7:35 pm
phandmd

I have a "Wednesday's Child" too, Lilli
7:36 pm
lilliann

Is your bairn so full of woe too Phan?
7:37 pm
phandmd

Yes, she is. She is very emotional.
7:38 pm
lilliann

How old is she Phan?
7:38 pm
Scrabbler

Adolescent girls are emotional hurricanes/tornadoes and they especially enjoy sucking their mothers up then spitting them out later.
7:39 pm

Periods, what a distant memory
7:43 pm

They don't need to suffer like I did
7:43 pm
phandmd

she is still very emotional. Or maybe I should say very passionate about what she feels.
7:44 pm
Scrabbler

Yep, my hysterectomy was SO helpful for me after years of suffering with pain and anemia.
7:44 pm
bichon

Why not just take birth control pills
7:44 pm
phandmd

hormonally, her problems are the opposite, even now, she is not regular.
7:44 pm
lilliann

I was seriously bad every month with headaches, stomache pains and she seems to be like me, and i and my mam,Aunty,nan all had to have hysterectomy's in our 30's so i really hope she doesn't follow suit
7:45 pm
lilliann

But if she has all the pain we had, it will be the best thing for her
7:45 pm
kristin

Totally agree they didn't decide someone needed to have a period every month until afterwards
7:47 pm
lilliann

I'm thinking about putting her on Birth control pills but she is just 15, so i'm not so sure
7:47 pm
bichon

Lots of teens are on birth control
7:48 pm
bichon

ca 6/24?

She isn't on birth control for sex but for health reasons

It actually is protective against ovarian cancer. There are benefits.

It's okay, got it

No girl should have to deal with that
7:51 pm
bichon

bye scrabs
7:52 pm
lilliann

Really Scrabs? Me and her dad think she should be on some sort of pill but i know she won't take it every day as she doesn't like taking pills, and it's not that she can't swallow one, it's the medication thing, for some reason, so would a monthly injection be better
7:52 pm
kristin

I was 16 when I got on them and it was for periods not sex. After hysterectomy at 38 I am still on hormones just not for birth control and that has been 10'years
7:52 pm
Scrabbler

Depo Provera is an injection given every 3 months
7:53 pm

so that would be just as good as a daily pill Scrabs?

I was 18 Kristin, but i didn't have periods until i was 16 but suffered badly for 6 months before i started .i suffered with bad stomach pains and headaches before and after the bairn was born that it got to the point i could have killed myself and then i had to tell a male gynecologist how bad it was..it just seems to go through the females in my family and i don't want her to suffer the same, which is why she's seeing a doctor this week and i think the injection will be the best thing for her.

I just hope she doesn't have to have a hysterectomy in her 30's like we all have had to, plus my cousin got breast cancer because of high oestrogen levels
8:04 pm
herinfernallady

Lili - you can get the genetic testing for the Breast Cancer. It is something I have to look into myself
8:05 pm
lilliann

I had a hysterectomy when i was 35 Kristen and it has been 10 years but i've not taken a tablet since as when they gave me them after the op i got bad headaches again so i refused. i eat my way through the menopause but still get hot flushes.
8:06 pm
lilliann

My cousin is the only one to have had it so they won't test Herin
8:07 pm
herinfernallady

It is something that I would think of if you can afford the cost.
8:07 pm
lilliann

Sadly she was pregnant at the time and she lost the bairn before they told her she had cancer.She's younger than me by 2 years
8:09 pm

But luckily she already had a daughter just after mine.

Honestly I am debating getting off hormones went to gyno Tuesday and go back next week after blood work results to discuss options I also have a tumor that produces prolactin so I need to treat one or the other
8:10 pm
lilliann

If more of the women in my family had it we would be tested by the NHS and if there were a couple and my doctor said that they wouldn't test, then i would pay for a test.
8:13 pm
lilliann

I would seriously get off hormones and is the tumour bad? i know that sounds like a silly question.Can it be treated?
8:14 pm

prolactic...need to look that up

I haven't taken any hormone tablets for 10 years and i don't think i'm any worse of for not.I don't need to give milk and my metabolism might not be the same and i'm not sure about my immune system..i get bad colds the same as i did 10 years ago.You can eat your way throught he menopause Kristin and changer your diet.

wow herin he will need a lot of help with a lot of things during recovery - feet need a lot of time to heal
8:25 pm
herinfernallady

So does he. Just agrivates me the other driver walked away unhurt
8:26 pm
herinfernallady

Surgeon has demanded he stay put for the time before and after surgery so they are keeping him in hospital where he can go slowly crazy
8:27 pm
lilliann

Was the other driver breatherlized?
8:28 pm
herinfernallady

Guess since they were both driving at around 60ks or 37 miles ph it meant lower injury.
8:28 pm
lilliann

Sometimes drivers do drift into other lanes because of a lot of reasons
8:28 pm
herinfernallady

Don't know Lil I believe so. judging by no skid marks on the other driver he was not paying the fluck attention
8:29 pm
lilliann

It was lucky for your friend that they were going slower as a faster speed would have meant alot worse injuries
8:30 pm
herinfernallady

Yes it was. Still super angry that the other driver walked away uninjuried
8:33 pm
lilliann

Well, sometimes that's the way it is...it's not nice for the person on the receiving side but as the saying goes 'Accidents to happen', as i say until the driver has been questioned properly, no-one knows.It could have been wind, an animal or just the driver wasn't concentrating or ont he phone etc...
8:35 pm
lilliann

We were behind a driver today who was in a mercedes 4x4 and was on her phone and was putting her brakes on every 2 minutes and was dangerous but she didn't need to have her phone upto her ear as she could plug it into the car.She wasn't concentrating and was going forward into junctions she shouldn't have done and stopped infront of others when she should have gone
8:36 pm
herinfernallady

That is a massive fine here talking on phones.
8:36 pm
herinfernallady

Lil - he wasn't concentrating and talking on the phone here is a huge fine.
8:36 pm
lilliann

It is here too, but you have to get caught first
8:37 pm
herinfernallady

Nope seems the guy fell asleep at the wheel. Now that just angers me
8:38 pm
lilliann

Then he deserves everything he gets herin, but atleast your friend is alive and with operations? plaster and therapy he will walk away...lots of others don't.
8:41 pm
herinfernallady

Yes that is true. That we are grateful for. Problem is my friend has an on the feet job.
8:42 pm

does he know how long he will be off his feet for?

The funny thing is, she was much more communicative and helped set the table, etc. than she ever was when she was married to my son! She would actually skip family holidays and go get tattoos on holidays instead of being with family!

(But I don't think I'd be very happy about someone re-arranging furniture in the middle of the night myself!)

Nef

Did you get new furniture or something?

jesdraggon

nope

he just wanted to hook his computer to a tv instead of using the laptop monitor, so then the tv had to be a specific distance from the couch, and it rather snowballed.

still, having someone move furniture would be nice….

a wall of them? My son's work desk (in the basement here) has 3 monitors, an iPad, and another tablet all surrounding him and it fills up the whole area under the stairs; (maybe 10-12 feet long)
