"A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes."
Hugh Downs

A woman pregnant with her first child paid a visit to her obstetrician's office.

After the exam, she shyly said, "My husband wants me to ask you...," to which the doctor replies, "I know, I know," placing a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "I get asked that all the time. Sex is fine until late in the pregnancy."

"No, that's not it," the woman confessed. "He wants to know if I can still mow the lawn."

A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he said, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side... You know what?"

"What dear?" She asked gently.

"I think you bring me bad luck."

Standing at the edge of the lake, a man saw a woman flailing about in the deep water. Unable to swim, the man screamed for help. A trout fisherman ran up.

The man said, "My wife is drowning and I can't swim. Please save her. I'll give you a hundred dollars." The fisherman dove into the water. In ten powerful strokes, he reached the woman, put his arm around her, and swam back to shore.

Depositing her at the feet of the man, the fisherman said, "Okay, where's my hundred dollars?"

The man said, "Look, when I saw her going down for the third time, I thought it was my wife. But this is my mother-in-law."

The fisherman reached into his pocket and said, "Just my luck. How much do I owe you?"

A female officer arrests a drunk. She warns him, "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be held against you."

The drunk replies, "Boobs."

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Good morning Joe, Ana dear, Haroula and Cailyn and everybody coming in after me.

Joe: fingers crossed that Granny Lilley doesn't have to wrestle the Doc! Happy homecoming for her kissy

Ana: good that the stress is over. Relaxing is muuuuch better. kissy

Hroula: hi and by to you

Cailyn: thanks for the hot coffee. Yummy!

Family meeting with Doc was same as always. Nothing new. My Dad could be in that state for another day or week or year.... He is only skin and bone because he isn't eating enough (only a soup/day) but his body and his mind don't want to give up. Dad is still clinging to life. It won't get better though. Poor man!

Today I'am taking a day off from going to the Hospice and I will spend the day in my studio, throwing ceramic objects for my exhibition in June. I'am way behind because I was spending my time in Hospice instead of the studio. But that's ok. I can do exhibitions again in the future, but I don't know how long I will have a father still.

For all of you I wish a wonderful day. Keep smiling!

All my love!

Good morning everybody. wave

I really thought that I would be bringing Mom home today, but no. sad

The Dr said the fluid on her lungs is worse today than yesterday, and they have to get it out of her before she comes home, so he put her on an IV to do that, and said that hopefully tomorrow she could come home. duh

So it's "wait & see". smirk

Evie I'm so sorry that your father is not improving. Hugs to you. hearts

I'm fixing to head down to the creek and see what I can see. happydance

I hope everyone has a super duper day. dance

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 12:36 PM

I lost Monday! Can't believe it's Tuesday already. Yesterday must have been hectic and I'm putting it out of my mind. Today I wait for my yard kid AGAIN. He came over at 11 am yesterday, said he would be back to do my mowing after he did another yard up the street. I left my shed open for him and he never showed. Nothing unusual for him. I just wait patiently till he finally appears unannounced and am glad he's here to do all the nasty work. Hope he shows today or my back lot will need a bulldozer to clear the high weeds.

Does anyone know anything about muscle aches and lack of potassium? I have been achy forever, and my neighbor lady asked if I was taking potassium? Nope, and hadn't been doing vitamins for a year either because of upset tummy problems. I took one vitamin yesterday (has some potassium in it) and actually felt better. Hummmmm. Could it be? Off to buy potassium pills today to see if this is the cause of all my aches and pains. Would be nice to be able to get up from a chair without screaming. Anyone else know about achy muscle/potassium deficiency?????

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 12:41 PM

some potassium would help. i know i need to get back on my magnesium and pottassium pills. i have some pottassium pills that my dr prescribe but can't swallow them so i buy otc ones now . joe sorry to hear that mom didnt get to come home today. trying to get over a headache today granddaughter (that lives here) has a musical concert tonight.

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 12:42 PM

Sorta, do not play with potassium supplements without doctor approval. It creates other issues. If you want potassium eat a banana, beets, strawberries, greens etc. Get a blood test to check your levels and see if you are actually in need of a supplement.
Posted by: looney4labs

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 01:12 PM

Ditto what Ana said. You could try eating one or two bananas a day and see if that helps. wave

We are all having a flashback today. It's sunny, bright and chilly but definitely not cold. The weather report keeps reminding us that on this day in 1993 we had Snow in amounts varying from 4-20". We lost our power for days, and from that year on I kept a big ole pile of firewood available just in case.

The day has decided I should do bills and do step one of the dreaded income tax. wave

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 02:51 PM

Still Morning here so Hello everyone!
Thanks for the heads up on the potassium, Ana. My "knowledgeable" friend told me she thought I should be taking some so... I will now cease and desist. Not fond of bananas at all. I do like them dehydrated so guess I can do up a bunch! (Haven't been doing it for very long.)
Oh Joe, so sorry your Mum has to wait another day. Evelyne, you know my heart is sad for you!!
Hi Nan. Hope you are having a great day!!
And to everyone else who are also wonderful Boomies, Happy Gaming!! wave

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 02:54 PM

Lotus, throw a banana, a cup of berries of your choice and a piece of a beet in a blender with some almond milk and you have an awesome potassium rich smoothie that will not taste like bananas.

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 03:21 PM

Dear friends, thank you so very much for all your prayers, good thoughts and many hugs. I feel like I'am in such good and kind hands with my GB family. I feel I'am being loved by you all. It warms my heart to have you as friends! kissy Thank you!!

I could throw quite a few pottery objects today and they came out nice. It relaxed me a bit.

Joe: I'am so sorry to hear that Mum is still in hospital. I understand Doc though. The lungs must really be liquid free before she comes home, otherwise she can't breath very good. I'am praying that she can come home tomorrow!

For everybody who is ailing: get well wishes and prayers are on the way.

This girl is going to sleep now. Already 8.20 p.m. here. Happy afternoon and evening to the US Boomies, and a wonderful evening to Haroula, the only other GB member on this side of the pond (I guess?).

Evelyne hearts Please remember to take care of yourself.

Joe, so sorry mom can't come home today. I hope she can clear her lungs quickly.

I have Dr. Phil playing in the background and my son walks by and starts yelling OMG, that's a friend of mine and sure enough the couple on there both live by my house and he is FB friends with them. Small world!

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 05:06 PM

Thanks for the advice on Potassium! I went to the store to buy some and realized that the 'supplements' contain only 2-3% of the daily requirement. Not worth the money when I can get much more in a banana or even better, pinto beans (which I am currently fixing for tostadas). Wow.

Why waste the money when the foods can do much better. My neighbor looked up the potassium values for a load of food and all of the foods he listed I DON'T eat. Oh my! Rarely eat bananas or orange juice (plays havoc with my tummy), hardly ever eat beans, etc.

So I'm going to buy and concentrate on those foods that I should be eating. Happily, I had just bought some brussel sprouts which I love but are expensive, and they contain loads of potassium. Gotta go cook them up. Then I will see after a week or two if the aches go away. Gonna be fun.

Re: Tuesday - 03/12/13 05:42 PM

Sorta please check with your doc about all that before you do more harm then good. Too much of somethings is worse then too little. Your water soluble vitamins will flush any extra out but the fat soluble ones remain!

You need a balance of sodium and potassium in your body. that is how you move. The one is on the outside of the cell and the other is on the inside. When they switch places your muscles contract, and when they go back to their oringinal place the muscles relax!!

Night Evelyne sleep well!!

Ana hope the project is moving right along for you!!

Lotus Happy Gaming to you too. lol Spinich also is a good sorce of potassium especially the baby ones.

L4l have fun with the books!! Which side of the 4-20 were you on??? Bet the kids had fun that year though. lol

My10 I hope the head starts to feel better so you can make it to the concert!!

Hi Leeana have a lovely day!!
