   Escaped commieny posted on Faith  A request for L-Dot 3XALADY, her husband of 42 years passed last month (end of May )
June 22 at 18:54 EST .



   MeiDei  Late April-May was a terrible time for many of us, I lost my brother, uncle & cousin within days & weeks of each other. I share her grief & ask God to bless her in special ways.

   Iacta alea est  You are all in my prayers. I lift you up before Him and pray He makes His loving, strengthening hand felt on your shoulders. May his peace ease your griefs and comfort your hearts......I send much love to you all.

   Escaped commieny posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Gators feed after dusk and it is mating season and they are fast. The little boy was snatched and that is a tragedy. Every body of water here has gators. After a day at Disney most tourists would be exhausted and in bed at 9:30 pm. Payers for the family.
Orlando has had more than our share of horror this week.

   FlatCityGirl  I could not understand why the alligator is still protected in Florida. Obviously, it is not endangered. A Floridian L.Dotter finally enlightened me: there is a small area in extreme South Florida where the American Crocodile, which is extremely endangered, is found. The Croc and the Gator look so much alike that it is almost impossible for all but experts to tell one from the other, and if hunting Gators is allowed, Crocs will also be killed.

I looked up photographs of the American Crocodile. Except for a more pointy snout and perhaps the placement of the eyes on the Croc, the two beasts do look almost exactly alike.

For the danger that it looks like the gators pose in Florida, I would declare open season on them, and if a few American Crocodiles got caught in the crossfire . . oh well.

   Escaped commieny posted on Shopper's Beware Caveat Emptor  Bad experience with Wayfair.com. May 1 st, I placed and order for 3 items. The Hamper came needing assembly, but it took 2 people not one. OK, it's a nice looking piece of furniture. Second item was a pair of drapes with stitching missing, called received a credit, the kicker was the third item - a bed-in-a-bag set with skirt. I received an email with a tracking number that it was shipped May 5, when it hadn't arrived by the 13th, I called, OOPS it didn't make the truck it is still in the warehouse, we will get it right out. Then I got an email saying it was discontinued.
At that point I placed my Amazon Prime order for much better insulated drapes, a comforter bed in a bag, nicer and less expensive, was all here in 3 days. After repeated calls to Wayfair they finally credited my Discover card May 21st. Bah Humbug on Wayfair.

   Escaped commieny  Gram I sent him your email. He said I could give out his new one to the 'old timers' from the Connection. I told him most no longer post here. I had to send emails to all our original members for a prayer circle for DH's cardio endarterectomy done this week. The prayers worked, successful surgery and he is home. Wonderful people and a great loss for this site.

   BirdsNest  My heart is shattered into a million pieces, Hagar lost his war on cancer late Tuesday afternoon. I watched the light in his eyes go dark, I have never felt so helpless in my life. I am at peace knowing he is no longer suffering. I am just not sure now what I am to do with myself. Thank all of you for your kind words and thoughts and many of you that helped me out in some way. I am feeling rather empty, don't know if that will go away. I am sorry that you all could not know the man that he was, the witty charming intelligent man that I called my best friend and the love of my life. I am very sad.

   Balogreene  I hate that. Last time at my cardiologist, they took me back to the room 20 minutes late, 20 minutes later, I was leaving the room when the Dr. walked in (I was timing it on my iPhone ).

Many years ago I thought it through. The person I would wait the longest for was Baryshnikov. I figured I would wait 20 to 25 minutes for him. No one (not even a cardiologist ) deserved more wait time. I try to stick with that.

   Sistersuzey  This has always been a major pet peeve of mine. Once my oldest son and I had spent an hour waiting in the back room for his pediatrician. I finally pulled a sharpie from my purse and had my son draw a skeleton on the paper sheet covering the exam table. We wrote "I was here and now I'm gone, all because you took too long!" Then we snuck out. I received a call later that day apologizing.

   BirdsNest  Ugh. Today Hagar was supposed to get a new PICC line put in. Because it was a holiday, the wound care nurse was off meaning the RN was to change the wound vac. She had not done one in a long time but I told her I could walk her through it. Because of the PICC line appt and no one had actually set up a time...they don't do that...we were cooling our jets all day waiting for them to send for him. I left at 6pm, no PICC line and the wound had not been changed. You can't start a wound care change and be interrupted, it takes at least 30 min to complete. Guess all this will be done tomorrow, or hopefully before Hagar's procedure for TEE. Checking for heart valve infection on Monday.

   Escaped commieny posted on Health & Diet  Who has had cataract surgery? I spent 4 hours today in tests and need to use some ointment for 3 weeks about a 'flash', apparent blood vein rupture, then if all is well they will schedule surgery. Haven't been able to post with these bad eyes and was hoping for a date today, now have to wait again. Fell 3 times and really got
buggered' up.

   NotaBene  About 7 years ago my mother came to visit. We were crossing the street and she held on my arm but did not want to cross the road. I asked what was the problem and she told me she could not see the traffic light. We went home, I talked to my husband about it. We went to our ophthalmologist and he said she was legally blind because of her cataracts. We talked to her and convinced her to have surgery. We took her and she had surgery on one eye. We had to put drops on that eye. One week later we took her again for the surgery on her other eye. She could not believe she could see so well. She had given up reading because of the cataracts, now she could read again. It was a miracle. I am so happy we that that for her. It changed her life. She lived until she was 94 enjoying life, the cataract surgery was a blessing in her life.

EC, go for it, it will change your life.

   Balogreene  My grandmother had the surgery, I think my dad did too. They both came through it well. My mom is 85, and refuses all surgery, but, she is opting for this one after the first of the year. It seems to work wonders.

   BirdsNest  I need to have cataract surgery, but it is low on the totem pole for now. I heard an ad coming home tonight about laser cataract surgery seemingly better than the method being used today.

   MeiDei  I would caution anyone about going the route of whole eye hard contact lenses after surgery - I have a friend who is struggling badly with that method; she has difficulty getting them out and needs assistance. My brother had lens implants during surgery that also corrected his vision. Just do the research of every available method and pick the one best for your lifestyle & abilities ... meaning that if you've never worn hard contact lenses I wouldn't opt for that procedure.
