This is the second day on this site

Yesterday was a bad day for me and I ate kind of spastically. You see, a couple of years ago, my husband's mom died, and she had been taking care of her older brother, who had dementia. He had no children or wife, so she took him in--their brother and sister could not. When she died, we ended up with him (plus her dog and cat).

I had to quit my job as he was a wanderer. Finally he started getting tired all the time and looked pale so we took him to the hospital. He was having atrial fibulations and high blood pressure and the doctor suggested we place him in a care facility. So we did, and he thrived there.

But I got a call yesterday morning and he had gone to take a nap and passed away very suddenly. Everyone is shocked.

We had to go make arrangements for his body and hopefully his life insurance will pay us back.

My husband begged me to go out for pizza so we ordered a veggie without cheese (I'm a devout, activist vegan).


I went to an endocrinologist because my thyroid is large and lumpy and they are hoping it isn't cancer. I'm pretty sure it isn't but you never know.

My legs were hurting so I showed the doctor and she ordered me to go to my general practicioner today because it could be cellulitis. He said it wasn't but I need to get antibiotics and wear anti-embolism stockings, which were $32.50 at the drugstore (I found them cheaper on Amazon).

My husband bought some soba noodles from an Asian market and I cooked them tonight and made spaghetti sauce from Trader Joes with some extra yummy veggies, TVP, and leftover TJ Meatless Meatballs. Yum.

I buy bananas all the time and my daughters just inhale them. At least they don't have time to rot!
