Skinny Sister texted they both slept nearly all night last night.
Unheard of since the operation.

My mom has developed apnea that she did not have previously, and keeps waking herself up within a minute or so of dropping off to sleep - another part of her exhaustion. We've started putting her on her side, backed-up with a pillow to keep her there and it solved the problem - for a few hours, then as one might expect, she needs to turn, but is "stuck" with the pillow at her back.

She wakes us, we turn her to the other side, and she's back to sleep.
Sleep is so healing, I think, and she has been deprived of it (and so have we) for so many weeks.

Doc's assistant failed to phone in new higher thyroid med, so we're giving her 1+1/2 for the last two days. First night of good sleep came last night. Maybe she can begin her healing in full...

Hi gals..

Changing my health insurance for a year until I hit Medicare a year from November.
Akkk..Luckily, I don't have any major things wrong with me except hypothyroidism..PTL..I can save $200 a month..Hopefully, I will be approved.

Sleep is so healing..We hear more and more about that and the effect it has on blood sugars and weight loss, etc..Glad your mom is sleeping better..

Oh, Debbie..it is hard to be away when parents go to the doctor..You might have to call the doc and get the low down..Don't worry about weight loss right now..Just do the best you can for now..It is hard when there is stress all around..

I sort of did an IF yesterday and lost a few pounds..LOL..Breakie/Mexican lunch with cheeps/no dinner/nothing the rest of the day and I wasn't hungry at all..Hmm..I do think I could do IF if I ate dinner at 4 p.m, then nothing the rest of the night.

Oh, ladies...Name for November??????? We have a few days to think.

Sandy: When are you heading to the Little Apple???

Hugs all around..I'm making some cheesecake muffins for breakie..I like adding some
almond flour for body.

Debby lucky you. We're eating on venison that Dh got this season. It's so good too. We ground up some for hamburger this time and I use it in a lot of sauces. Enjoy your moose.

Judy I'm so glad your Mom is getting rest. That's the best medicine for healing as we all know.

I haven't been posting much lately. We are not doing much these days. Right now we are getting some much needed rain. Loved to see it falling after we got back from our walk with the fur kids.

Take care all.

Sharon - I know you haven't posted much lately and I must confess - I miss your posts.
I think even if you think you don't have much to say, we still like hearing from you.
No pressure though (LOL).

DEBBY ADD ME into the wondering of how moose tastes and whether it's gamey!!!????

My BIL got a deer and my nephew is over the moon excited!! He will have lots of meat. He started eating low carb/gluten free/dairy free last year. He's the one with Crohn's and is now off all medication due to the way he's eating - and juicing.

I think deer is gamey. Anyone?

I haven't died!! Just out of town, then work, work, work then a big 3 day horse show last weekend. Just now recovering! I hope all is well with everyone. Judy, is your mom on pain meds? Is her apnea obstructive (most common. these people often snore) or central (she stops breathing) ? My concern is you said she didn't have it previously.

Yay! Cindy !!!!!

She did not have apnea previously as far as we know.
She has not spent a night alone since surgery, and we noticed it only when she was drugged, but her biggest drug today is Tylenol. And she still has apnea and weird deep breathing. She stops breathing and we wake her up to breathe (obviously, we are sleep deprived also!)

We still notice every single day she is shaking off the vestiges of Reglan...

How was the horse show?

Good for you! We're really blessed this year again. We missed last year, so we bought a grass-fed beef... (2nd best)

Good for your BIL & nephew!
Gamey: If the hunter knows what he's doing, he won't let it get tainted... but many week-end hunters don't know & don't clean it right away & aren't careful... thus tainting the meat with that 'gamey' taste... its comparable to eating lamb (ick)...
But if the hunter does it right (like my guys)... its as good as any lean beef, in fact I prefer it to beef. I will be set for my cook-ahead meat-supply for the year now... happy I don't have to by store-bought meat.

Hi gang..

Interesting wild game information.. Honestly, I don't eat deer/bear, etc..I like quail, though, but they seem to far and few between on the farm lately.

Oh, I hope your mom gets a normal sleeping rhythm soon, Judy. It has been a long road, but glad she is improving a tiny bit each day.

Cindy, we knew you weren't dead, but glad you are back...Busy gal with your big baby girl!!!

Chiro this morning, then some gentle exercise.

I was 144 this morning..Would like to drop for our weigh-in on Thursday/Friday..Names anyone?

Here I am. Thank you Judy for the kind words. I will try harder to become the best poster ever. It's easy to fall into lurker mode. Must not do that.

It's still overcast here but our little day of rain has passed now. It was sure nice to see heaven shed tears yesterday. We got out between showers to get a walk in.

Having a little pain today so taking it easy. We may head for a store in a bit. Today is discount for seniors at our natural food store close by.

Better get ready. Best wishes to all.

How was the horse show?
I would go easy as possible on the pain meds. It's easy for that age group to get overdosed. So glad today was down to Tylenol. The horse show was fun but my girl was overexcited and naughty!! We will do better next year!

Sharon

No pain pills for more than a week. No phenergan for more than a week.
She had a follow-up with the surgeon today who could not believe how well she's doing for 5-1/2 weeks post surgery. Someday soon she'll realize it too.

He told us we could keep the gastric tube closed unless she was nauseated (yay!) and only tube feed at night (yay!), hoping her appetite will kick in.

Cindy I've heard many horse people describe their horses as naughty. That always makes me smile. Well, probably because I'm not riding the naughty horse!

Yeah for your mom..She is a real trooper..When the docs told you it was a looooongg process for healing, I'm glad your mom is doing so well..

Yikes..A naughty horse is worse than an a naughty cat..Bigger naughties..

Okay..still searching for health insurance....Go with BC/BS for $480 a month (until 11/14) OR go with Coventry for $290 a month..Basically the same..but Coventry has to have things pre-approved a lot..Thoughts would be appreciated...

Will either plan pay for the low carb doctor?

And refresh me - this is only for how long? You're about to turn 64?
Even though you don't look a day past 40?

Judy we have two rat terriers. The one in my avi is our oldest. He was a youngster in the pic before the second came to us. There is 2 years difference in there ages.

I'm going to have to find a picture of them both. ha! I just love the way Zip looks in this one. He usually doesn't pose like that.

Good morning, DH started the heater this morning so you know we are finally feeling the chilly mornings.

I had my first cup of coffee with butter in it and ready to start my day. If you listen to listen to Jimmy Moore's Low Carb Conversations with Dietitian Cassie you will know she does the butter in coffee where I got the idea. That reminds me I have to catch up on some of his podcasts.

Have a nice day and for the ones who need them.

I love coffee so much - but I'm very specific about it and I doubt I could enjoy butter in mine.

I have downloaded nearly every podcast and I keep them for I don't know what. I have only listened to a few. Don't know why I don't just keep up with them...

Okay, girls..I was laying in my bed this a.m. thinking of our November name..
How about "Thankfully Thinner for Thanksgiving"..

Yes, Sharon I have done Bulletproof Coffee before..However, I do love heavy cream in my coffee, so that is my fatty coffee..Dh's family always had rat terriers on the farm..They were busy, busy, busy.

No coverage for my WL doctor..

Dh came home from his appointment..Heart is fine..his arteries are fine..But, he has to lose weight..duh..Milk is going out and he needs to cut down on the grapefruit sections and nuts..Too many calories for a non-active person.

I listen to Jimmy in the car/doing dishes, etc..I like The Low Carb Experts the best of all..
