Marc Freeman

3:31 am

No worries. I don't have the un7 though. It's the only 7 I'm missing...

{{hugs}} and good morning my dearest sprite. cooee matty. how are you both today?
3:34 am
mattygroves

Thanks! Tired today with a slightly dodgy tummy, though that may have been the beer ;)
3:35 am
grannyrose

bring out the alka seltzer then....
3:35 am
sprite

*hugs rose* Hello dear one. I am ok. Just like matty, tired and my bowels are off. But all minor and am looking forward to the training this afternoon.
3:36 am
grannyrose

yuck sprite. i wish it would settle sooner rather than later. good news about the training. you are such a star!!
3:36 am
sprite

:D I plan to become the best volunteer they ever had, lol
3:36 am
grannyrose

and you will be darling. you have so much wisdom to share
3:37 am
sprite

oh matty, found it. Un + not when but ** + high scoring playing card
3:37 am
sprite

well to b e honest, the work is more about listening than sharing wisdom. Empathy is our biggest tool. But that is one I have a bit of practice in :)
3:37 am
mattygroves

Thank you Sprite!
3:38 am
sprite

yvw :)
3:38 am
mattygroves

I think most of us have a un7! I don't have two, that's for sure :)
3:38 am
sprite

me neither. Well... one with only one eye. But that is for intimate watchers.
3:39 am
grannyrose

true sprite. but a word of wisdom spoken at the right time is so valuable.
3:39 am
sprite

my daughter is in your country at the moment, matty! She wanted to spend a holiday there to find out if she can manage herself in english everyday use.
3:40 am
sprite

that is true, rose. And knowing myself, I won't be able to prevent myself, lol. I tend to preach, I think.
3:41 am
mattygroves

Oooh, where in the UK is she visiting?
3:41 am
sprite

near Bristol
3:42 am
mattygroves

Aaah, west country English! Arrr ;)
3:43 am
sprite

*giggles* I had hoped I'd be able to find her a babble address to visit, but that didn't work out. Now she is staying with a canoe friend of my husband's. The good thing is, we know it is safe. The bad thing is, he is dutch. She is english though, and so are the kids, so... I bet they won't speak dutch much.
3:44 am
mattygroves

Well, if she comes to the London area let me know. I'll take her to a pub :)
3:45 am
sprite

awesome, matty! Will remember that for a future visit. I promised her we will go on a trip to York someday. Maybe we can make a stop at london first then.
3:45 am
grannyrose

sprite, june took me out today. she loaded the wheelchair into her car and took me window shopping in one of our local shopping malls.
3:46 am
sprite

we did. we ate junk food for lunch, and i finally spent my goodbye gift from my work colleagues
3:47 am
sprite

oh that is nice. What did you get?
3:47 am
grannyrose

a waterford crystal vase to replace the one don broke of my grandmothers.
3:48 am
sprite

well spent. You'll think of your coworkers every time you fill it. And if you get really frustrated with work related issues, you can always break this one yourself.
3:49 am
grannyrose

and there goes the dratted timer. sprite, i'll bet you are gone when i check in. if so, i hope you have a great session today. xoxox

4:28 am

matty? Are you still here?
4:28 am
mattygroves

Yep
4:29 am
mattygroves

I'm here. In body, if not in brain
4:29 am
rubyfoo

Well then, good morning to you!
4:29 am
mattygroves

And to you, Ruby!
4:30 am
rubyfoo

I'm waiting for the lunch lady. I had my usual piggish French toast with maple syrup for breakfast so am not interested in eating again.
4:30 am
mattygroves

hah - sounds lovely though!
4:30 am
rubyfoo

Thids country is wonderful' gov't agencies seem to really care and are helping me a lot
4:31 am
mattygroves

That's brilliant. Europe and the UK do get things right. Though if the conservatives here get their way, so much would be dismantled
4:32 am
rubyfoo

They are even trying to get me health insurance which would be an enormous help
4:32 am
mattygroves

Oh, I'm sure it would! I hope they come through for you
4:32 am
rubyfoo

The gov't lady said "We provide it for Arabs and Serbs, why not you?"
4:34 am
mattygroves

Charming! But I do hope they do!
4:34 am
mattygroves

And that it all gets sorted
4:34 am
mattygroves

I'm sure it will, though the wheels of bureaucracy can grind exceedingly slowly
4:35 am
rubyfoo

Whatever she says is good enough for me! And the Conseil General is looking for a permanent placement for my husband
4:35 am
mattygroves

That would be brilliant, and hopefully not too far away
4:35 am
rubyfoo

I don't think it will matter for very long.
4:36 am
mattygroves

I'm sorry. I can't imagine how tough this is for you. As my mother used to say, ageing is not for wimps (or the fa5 hearted)
4:36 am
rubyfoo

Exactly.
4:37 am
mattygroves

How is your husband doing where he is now?
4:38 am
rubyfoo

The place is lovely, out in the country, surrounded by hills and animals. The problem is that he remains focused solely on me and repeats over and over how much he loves me.
4:38 am
rubyfoo

He won't talk about anything else.
4:38 am
rubyfoo

It's sad but I can't help him
4:39 am
mattygroves

I know. It's horrible to lose your loved ones a tiny piece at a time.
4:39 am
mattygroves

{{hugs}}
4:39 am
rubyfoo

I'm not sure what sense he has of time, but I don't go there often as I can't drive myself and need friends to drive me and to give me moral support
4:40 am
mattygroves

Many people suffering from conditions like his have a poor sense of time - he is in the best place for him (and for you)
4:41 am
rubyfoo

Mostly, he's safe and I can rest.
4:41 am
rubyfoo

And the staff can deal with his agitation at night
4:42 am
mattygroves

Exactly. And the staff are trained to do so and he can't wander far in any case (if he does wander)
4:48 am
rubyfoo

Bye, Matty, thanks for listening to my endless whine
4:48 am
mattygroves

It's not whining - you have every right. My thoughts are with you and your family - it's a tough time for all *hugs*

A day when we try and figure out who is the best of the worst :/
4:55 am
mattygroves

Oh yes - a Canadian friend was explaining the evilness of Stephen Harper to me. And the fact he' can't vote as he's been out of the country for more than five years
4:57 am
crosshair

We are definitely ready for anything other than harper, although it seems that it will be a close race once again with a minority Govt, at the helm.
4:58 am
mattygroves

Though, from what little I gather, hopefully not lead by Harper...
4:58 am
Buggie

Hah, I can't vote either, either in England or France. If I went back to England, I couldn't even open a bank account...
4:58 am
mattygroves

How come, Buggie?
4:59 am
Buggie

I'm British, so I can't vote in France. Grew up in France, so I can't vote in England.
4:59 am
Buggie

Well, I can vote for town and european elections in France, that's it
5:00 am
mattygroves

You should be able to vote in at least one country in at least some elections being part of the EU?
5:03 am
Buggie

municipal and EU and that's it. No national elections whatsoever. I have no say what happens to my taxes...
5:04 am
mattygroves

You should be able to get an absentee vote in the UK, shouldn't you? Mind you, I'm no expert
5:04 am
Buggie

Nope, because I'm not in the system, I'm not a resident
5:06 am
Buggie

I'm a foreigner wherever I go. My sister went back to the UK for a few months as an au pair. She couldn't open a bank account there. The bank manager told her if she's been a foreigner he would have been able to use a special procedure, but as she's british he couldn't do anything
5:07 am
crosshair

We came over from the U.K in 1966, and although I hold a U.K passport, I doubt i could do much over there other than by a bus token.
5:08 am
crosshair

5:08 am
crosshair

However, i can vote here
5:08 am
Buggie

Oh you're british? dual nationality?
5:09 am
crosshair

Indeed. here, i am classified as a "permanent resident"
5:14 am
Buggie

I did think about getting dual nationality. I got the forms and started getting the paperwork, but gave up. French burocracy. That and a) the police do a background check and question your coworkers and everything. b) there's an official ceremony for them giving you your nationality. ugh. c) at the time it made me eligible for militairy duty
5:15 am
crosshair

Funny thing is, as my paperwork stand at this moment, her majesty can still call me up for military service, should a draft ever be enacted--though i am getting a whisker long in the tooth for that now :)
5:17 am
Buggie

I will admit, I hate to think about what would happen if the UKĀ ever left the EU
5:33 am
mattygroves

I am missing two words to finish - can you help? AN6/21 and CA5/14?

Good Evening Everyone. How are you this lovely evening?
9:08 pm
jesdraggon

pretty well, Nef, and yourself?
9:08 pm
Nef

doing ok.
9:17 pm
Nef

I have a nosy elderly neighbor who has health problems & keeps wanting me to come over & take care of her. When I have gone over & checked her BP or pulse & I've advised her to go to Urgent Care or the hospital; she refuses to go (I think she's haveing episodes of atrial fibrillation). She insists that she "just had a physical; & the doctor didn't do anything>" And she refuses to go in when she Is having problems. I'm trying to distance myself; and she's trying to make me get involved in caring for her. So tonight when she called I was heading out the door to take DH to a meeting at church; and normally I would have come straight home; but I went to DQ instead & had apeanut buster bar while sitting in the parking lot!
9:17 pm
Nef

I'm hiding form my neighbor now!
9:18 pm
jesdraggon

hah. get REALLY scary decorations?
9:18 pm
jesdraggon

it is almost halloween.
9:21 pm
Nef

I don't think that htat would help. She's in her late 80's; and I'm learning that she sits & watches the activity on the block; so she keeps track of who's home or not. Mind you; she lived here when we moved in, & we've lived here for 24 years now! (Both she & her husband were really grumpy & nasty to our kids when we moved here; we've avoided them most of this time)
9:26 pm
Nef

(her husband died a few years ago after 3 years of suffering from postherpatic neuralgia); that's when she started calling me.
9:34 pm
godthaab

Name that proper noun - German philosopher
9:35 pm

desperation. she has nobody else to ask?
9:37 pm

godthaab, there are too many & none that I can think of have names in theis grid
9:38 pm
godthaab

9:39 pm
Nef

She has both friends & relatives, jes; I just don't want to be her "personal" nurse! And she can be really nasty & spiteful if she gets mad at you.
9:39 pm
Nef

godthaab; that is one I've never heard of.
9:40 pm
jesdraggon

well hell. if shes still got family around, I've got nothing.
9:41 pm
godthaab

No, she is not really well known. I think she is famous for the quote "the banality of evil"
9:42 pm
Nef

yeah, so tonight I hid from her (& ate ice cream while doing it! NOT a good choice!)
9:43 pm
Nef

I Googled her, godthaab; I'll have to read up on her later.
9:44 pm
godthaab

Cool!
9:45 pm
Nef

Could I please have the stats for that bottom left corner A?

I live in a senior community and anytime we have a concern for the welfare of a senior we call social services. You would have a valid reason to do that because of your concern for her health issues. Trying to do any "nursing" checking BP etc could put you in a risk situation for helping unless you are a medical professional. seen it happen!
9:51 pm
jesdraggon

i haven't got nbt yet, but i do have nbs
9:52 pm
Nef

cookie, I am a retired RN. I'm trying to refer her to her doctor or the hospital; she won't go. So far I'm staying within my "legal boundaries" since I'm not telling her what I think the problem is
9:53 pm
Nef

I've even told her to call our senior link line (an all in 1 senior referral service here that could hook her up with social services, handy men; refer her to a gerontology doc, etc. but she won't call them
9:54 pm
Nef

jes, which letter/tile are you missing?

hi stid! How are you tonight?
10:04 pm
Nef

I love reading how excited you are aboutbeing a teacher! :-)
10:05 pm
stidmama

I am doing okay. The online class is officially over. I didn't get as high a grade as I would have liked, but I got a reasonable grade for my effort. :-) My nights are again my own... celebrating tonight with doing NO schoolwork of any kind!
10:05 pm
jesdraggon

what class where you taking?
10:05 pm
stidmama

Tomorrow I have to be back in form, though. Need to get ready for parent conferences in three weeks! *panicked teacher look* I am always a little nervous.
10:06 pm
Nef

WOO HOO stid!!!
10:06 pm
stidmama

A grad-level class in a specific framework for thinking about literacy instruction. (The Daily 5 and CAFE)
10:07 pm
stidmama

And of course orchestra rehearsals have started up again. I am nervous about the concerts this quarter, I am the only percussionist, and there are a couple of pieces that truthfully need at least three.
10:07 pm
stidmama

other than that -- life is pretty good. The house is a mess, the garden looks ragged (always does this time of year), and the family is well.
10:07 pm
Nef

oh-oh. Can't you recruit your hubby to help?
10:09 pm
stidmama

That's why the house isn't horrible. It's just still cluttered from fire boxes. And that just has to wait until _I_ have the time and mental energy for it. No one else in the family has the will or interest to do this, and I just cannot bear to toss boxes that I know have some of the things I desperately want to keep (I know, because I have peeked in the boxes). But most of it will end up going to the dump. Next year. I parcel my time and sorrow these days.
10:10 pm
Nef

maybe pack up half the boxes & just deal with 1 or 2 at a time?
10:11 pm
Nef

I hear you about trying to parcel time & energy....
10:12 pm
stidmama

nowhere to put the boxes if I am to have any space in the garage or my office space. People who love me don't care... people who care don't matter enough for me to worry. Except my granny's voice keeps saying to me that I need to have seating for guests. :-)
10:12 pm
stidmama

And each box rips my heart out, actually. It's very slow going. So no, nothing moves during the school yea.
10:12 pm
stidmama

help on the upper E please?
10:13 pm
Nef

THose little voices in our heads sure nag a lot, don't they?
10:14 pm
Bugsaw

hello friends, Nef and stid. I have been to stid's house Nef and she makes it sound like hoarder heaven where you have to crawl around on top of boxes touching the ceiling to get anywhere. It is all baloney. Her house is lovely, the boxes are stored subtly and there is lots of room for guests
10:14 pm
Nef

ea4/10; (French water)
10:16 pm
Nef

I believe you Bugsaw! :-) *I* have places to sit, I just have a lot of stuff to sort through also and no one else can (or should) do it because they throw out the stuff I want to save & save the stuff that should be thrown
10:18 pm

10:43 pm
Nef

By read your profile just now (again). I'm having a left total knee replacement on 11/11. I'm kind of bouncing between fear & hope right now...
10:43 pm
Nef

That picture just looks like you guys were having a blast!
10:45 pm
grannyrose

is that going to be your first?
10:46 pm
Nef

Yes, but I've had a rt. total hip in 2011; and also surgery on my thumb joints for arthritis too.
10:48 pm
grannyrose

ummm, nef, a tad different to those other joint replacements. all i can say is, if you are offered a spinal anaesthetic GRAB IT WITH BOTH HANDS!!
10:49 pm
Nef

He is going to do a spinal; I'm going to be the first case in the AM & he says I'll be up walking that evening (whether I want to be or not, I guess!)
10:51 pm
rururocks

*checks to see what granny is grabbing with two hands*
10:52 pm
Nef

There was a group of about 20 Rn's who I worked with for 25+ years; all in the same ICU. of that group of 20; 8 have had total knee replacements and only 2 or 3 have had good to prefect outcomes (which is why I've been scared)
10:53 pm
Nef

ruru, spinals. you can't feel anything below the waist with them...
10:53 pm
grannyrose

nef, my original knee replacement was the best thing i ever did for myself.
10:53 pm
jesdraggon

10:54 pm
JBsAnno

Hi, Nef, I recently helped a friend who had a TKR. I stayed with her for the first two weeks. I could have left after the first week, she was doing so well!
10:54 pm
grannyrose

ni5. ni + a nasty man, a bounder, or an abbreviation for a classic type of car
10:55 pm
jesdraggon

that's ni5/14, i need 5/12 please
10:55 pm
JBsAnno

I learned a few things: 1. Make sure you have all your supplies in before the surgery: groceries, clean laundry, medical support equipment, etc. You won't be going anywhere for the first week or so.
10:55 pm
grannyrose

not a tenth
10:55 pm
Nef

before the tenth
10:56 pm
jesdraggon

d'oh! thanks, nef
10:57 pm
jesdraggon

and granny
10:57 pm
JBsAnno

Oh, she's also 73. 2nd thing I learned: the surgery is becoming more commonplace, and therefore there is a LOT of information available. Pinterest has a lot of info, I found it helpful. ALSO - her surgery group had a patient support website, loaded with videos and info, very helpful.
10:58 pm
Nef

JBs, I already know that. My DH can't drive anymore (he has MS); so I've already started stocking up of non-perishables; and will do a Costco run for fruits & veggies 1 -2 days before surgery. And I have 2 retired RN friends who live within 2 miles of me; plusmy 2 kids will be around (my son says he'll be here most of the time to keep an eye on us; but I'm not sure how he will do that.
11:00 pm
Nef

NOw THAT is interesting! I'll have to check out Pinterest. The hospital has pre-op classes that are mandatory, a post-op support website would be helpful thought
11:01 pm
JBsAnno

3. Follow your prescribed regimen. Do the exercises. Take the meds. Do the icepacks. It WILL hurt the first few days, and you won't want to walk much, but the pain will subside, and you will be happy to get the function back as soon as you can.
11:01 pm
grannyrose

over here i was a guinea pig for Stryker, manufacturer of prosthesis. i had a designer knee put in. it was wonderful.
11:02 pm
jesdraggon

un7 please?
11:03 pm
grannyrose

not two-face.
11:03 pm
Nef

granny, I'm allergic to most metal so they will be putting a titanium and ceramic joint in for me. I did well with that for my hip, it isn't a common joint for knees from the sounds of it
11:04 pm
JBsAnno

4. Keep a journal. Write down what meds you took when ( a spreadsheet is helpful if that's easier for you). Track your exercises and progress, it will help motivate you. Also good to show your doctor/post op care team. I also had a page of all the contact names and numbers for quick reference.
11:05 pm
JBsAnno

Nef, too bad they don't have transparent skin so you can show off your upcoming new internal jewelry!
11:05 pm
jesdraggon

thanks, granny
11:07 pm
Nef

LOL, JBs! You sure learned a lot from your friends surgery! :-). I'm very sensitive to pain meds; half a Tylenol #3 is enough to snow me. The book they've already given me has all of the progress sheets for exercises; & I have to bring it in to the 1st post-op visit too.
11:08 pm
JBsAnno

Last thing, Nef, my friend lives in a senior community. So many people offered stories of their own or closely related/friends procedures and recoveries. It seemed to me that the ones that were done in the last five years had the best recovery anecdotes.
11:12 pm
Nef

Like I said; to know so many of my old co-workers who've had this and to have so many with less than perfect outcomes (including 1 of the ones who will be helping me -- she says she "owes me!" after all I've helped her through with her TKR and spinal surgeries, etc) just makes me wonder sometimes.
11:12 pm
JBsAnno

Nef, I'll be praying for you for a successful procedure and recovery. You sound to be very prepared, and that will serve you well, especially in the first few weeks. I would definitely recommend that you have someone stay with you for the first few days if you can. My friend ended up on the floor (slid off her chair) on her first night home, and I had to call a neighbor to help me get her up! She was fine, we were laughing about it, but I was so glad to be there to help her. She would have had a hard time to get to the phone to call someone.
11:12 pm
jesdraggon

an6 please?
11:12 pm
grannyrose

and my last hint is no matter what, get up off the chair and walk, even if it is only a few steps, every hour.
11:13 pm
grannyrose

an6, an + vowel + not walked
11:13 pm

Okay, I'm done, for now! I hope this was helpful. :) Thanks for letting me drive the chog for a while!
