Ohhh, same story on my gerd, it is so bad that at times I was taking 2 40mg nexium a day, it was so painful and would wake me up at night, throwing up or almost with the battery acid in the back of my throat. I got very proactive against it except for changing my WOE, I just took more things to control it. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Another example of lazy Buffy. And yes, even water could set it off, and especially bad if and when (and it was almost daily) that I overate. What a cycle I was in. Blehhhhh

I wonder about the honey, although I do hear there are healing things about taking local honey and I don't know as 1 teaspoon every other night would hurt, if I took it along with my evening meal, but then, would it help? I think, like you, that it is just going to be many months of tapering off. I feel pretty good that I was successful in cutting my dosage in half and so far, although I am fighting the symptoms returning, having a 20 mg every other day. I also try to not eat anything after my evening meal now, where as I used to snack all evening and that should help. I also take probiotics but started them to help out with all the infections I was getting, then the yeast infections from the antibiotics. All is very slowly getting better.

Yes, DDs friend who was in England was able to stay with her Mum of course, so it wasn't so bad and she had friends here who looked after things. Not sure what she did about work, not sure she needs to work although she does. She does have a beloved little dog that friends got together and someone paid for the doggie to be shipped over to England, they were both so sat apart. As she healed, she begin to tour around the country side and took fabulous pictures of quaint little villages, homes, streets, shops, scenery and posted them on FB. It was wonderful, she could certainly become a tour guide for visitors who wanted to travel there.

Obviously do what your heart desires, BUT my cousin is a beekeeper and regularly dismisses the "eat local honey" meme. He has earlier pointed me to studies and it's some other part of the process you should eat, rather than the end product, honey, that could only maybe and possibly produce beneficial effects.

After I read it, I never thought I'd be preaching it, so I have no idea what his sources were. I believe him.

Unbelievable they could ship that dog over! I was under (obviously wrong) impression that the dog needed to be quarantined and given all kinds of special shots, etc.
VERY nice they could get the dog together with your friend! And all that touring sounds like a little bit of heaven to me.

OK, I am really going to lie down again (REALLY??)

You know what I managed to make? Cole slaw. (REALLY??)
What I WANT to make is some soup for me and dh - chicken broth based, one of buttoni's recipes and Maria's sub sandwich bread to dry and toast for dressing in a few days.

Maybe later.

I think the dog did have to go through all that, it was a lengthy process.

go to bed!

How adorable Buffy!

I felt totally back to normal today. Thank goodness, I think I missed that bullet.

Judy, lay down!!!!

Kcjudi, Thanks. I had finally called Bichelmeyers and found it. AND they make their OWN lard. All the lard I've found at stores in those nifty little buckets has "partially hydrogenated veg oil" in it! So much for pure lard, right? Anyway, it's good to know I can get it so close and we shop down there for meat pretty regularly anyway. Thanks for the tip though. I guess great minds think alike, lol.

We just ate the last of the chocolate peanut butter pie. I loved that pie! DH not so much. He doesn't even really like the real thing either so no surprise there. I guess I'll make another LC Pecan Pie to take for him for Thanksgiving day. And some of the LC dressing.

Thanks, Sandy...I used to think 63 was way over the hill..way over..But, I still can get down on the floor and play with the kids in the nursery. And, I can get up pretty well, too..

Chatted with Beth..Can't wait to see her on Thursday. The cowl I made was a big flop, so I'm starting a neat scarf with the same yarn..I need to work night and day to get it done.
She wanted me to put a label on it, so she wouldn't lose it..??? !!!

Aw that's sweet. You could get a custom label made that says "This beautiful hand-made by her wonderful mother scarf belongs to Beth". Sounds good to me, lol.

I think when we were young 63 WAS old. Our generation has managed to keep old age farther away, lol.

Carolyn!!

You're still young. Sandy's right - our generation has managed to keep ourselves younger for a longer time.

Heck, my cute smart 84-yr-old mother was extremely young in her sixties - so was my dad. Quite spry into their 70s. I can now tell she's in her 80s, but she does everything, has lots of friends - has an enviable life.

I have never had a low-carb Thanksgiving and am starting to panic a little about all the things I want to serve. I may ease up on that...

I really did want to make my own cream of mushroom soup (from low carbing among friends), and probably will. I don't think I've seen a canned soup that works for low carb.

I went to 3 grocery stores on Friday. I still think I picked up the virus from one of those stores. And I still need sliced mushrooms!

There's a Campbell's Cream of Chicken and Mushroom soup that only has 4 carbs per serving. I think I remember that correctly. And it's very yummy!! I've always thought about making lc cr of mushroom soup but never have. Please let us know how it turns out if you end up making it.

My dad's 82 and in pretty good health. He's almost bionic with 2 knee replacements and a shoulder replacement. But he's very spry and active most of the time. Right now he's dealing with this anemia diagnosis that we should find out more about Wed. The bad thing is he doesn't drive so he can't get out and socialize as much as he'd like. And we can't talk him into moving to a senior living place.

I've actually made cream of mushroom soup before, but not low carb, so I'm sure there was a roux with flour. By the way, it was totally worth it.

I'm going to use Maria's recipe from low carbing among friends. I don't see any harm making it tomorrow or Tuesday for Thursday's green bean casserole.
HAVING SAID THAT I'm interested in finding the Campbell's version to keep on-hand. Or possibly use if I get in a time crunch.
Thanks Sandy!

Another good and very rich alternative is Bertolli's Alfredo Mushroom Sauce..You do have to thin it a bit with cream/LC milk, though.

I have used the cream of chicken/mushroom soup a lot and don't worry too much about it and it is very easy peasey..

I do like that "label" Sandy..Now to find one..

Oh forget it - I have enough to cook.
I'll be happy to find the soup.

When it's not a holiday I will DEFINITELY try the Alfredo mushroom sauce. What a great idea!
Thank you birthday girl!

You are welcome... You will enjoy the soup and if you want more mushrooms in the green beans, you can add some extra ones..I'm not a mushroom person myself, but my dh loves them.

Hi girls,
Please pray for my puppy. She's still not eating & barely drinking. I'll take her to the pet hospital in the morning if she makes it.

Praying for little Shelby now. And awaiting news about her. One of my grand-dogs did this and got very sick too, but she did pull through. I'm sure Shelby is a little fighter and I pray she gets better soon!

Happy Belated B-day Carolyn!!

Debbie keep us updated on your puppy. God only knows I've had some ill pets!!

Buffy, I think you need to add Protonix, a proton pump inhibitor, to your Nexium. Have you had an EGD? You may need a scope to look at what's going on. You can get into serious trouble with an ulcer or erosive esophagitus.

Good morning girls,
Thanks for your prayers! Shelby seems better this morning. She's vigorously eating "snow" and did drink her water during the night. Still not eating, but at least she's not dehydrated. I'll be taking her in to the vets this morning.

Those of you who know dogs that survived this... how long did it take to run its course? Did they just keep them hydrated?

I'm afraid my sensitive adrenals had a freak-out last night. Major anxiety & stress all night, didn't sleep much... will have to take much more isocort today.

Your lunch sounds yummy Carolyn. I like that you can plan ahead & enjoy that way. I try to see the menu before going out too, but around here it seems to not do me much good. Although, now that I'm adding salt, maybe it won't be quite as hard.

Have a good day! I'll update you as things progress on Shelby. Thank you for keeping her in prayer! Jesus is the best healer!
