    • Mom's are generally tough! They've been through so much to get where they are - give her extra hugs and TLC even when she's being a buster and know that you are caught up on the stuff that matters

        • Thanks all! Today is the colonoscopy but Mom seems better despite not having eaten for two days. I feel better today also, having slept well, taken a shower, and changed my clothes for the first time in 36 hours. Am staying primal, it is quite easy really, eggs and sausage in the morning, salad with meat at night.

          • I will know more this afternoon. Honestly I know it sounds shallow but I am once again so grateful for having found this way of living that is helping me be strong inside and out.

              It doesn't sound shallow at all. What you choose to eat is nourishing your body and mind and that's a good thing. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for your Mom.

                It really does make all the difference in the world, doesn't it?
                We'll soon have 2 yrs under our belts..
                belts which are many inches smaller

                So glad to hear your mom is getting the tests and help she needs.
                It has to make it easier on her to have you there.

                • Well, Mom's test was good! I can probably take her home tonight. She is currently eating 'heart healthy' pancakes, toast, and orange juice. God help us!

                    I'm not really certain what my best personal improvement after primal is, but stable mood is definitely one of them.

                    (Maybe you can sneak in some nummy soup. Even cardiologists should be okay with chicken... :// I swear hospitals scare me. Why do I want to work there again?)

                    • Enough to make ones hair stand on end! Heart healthy - it is so hard to educate our parents age group as they are so determined that the doctors know everything and they are terrified of doing anything against what the doc said. Sneak in some good soups and broths if you can - hope it all goes well with her discharge. And it is amazing how the primal way helps on so many levels! You go girl!

                        Maybe that's because of. The healing power of a fast?

                        Lordy, lordy! Hope she still feels better after that.

                        • You know, I think the fast helped with inflammation. I brought her home today! Not sure what the future will bring but she is home with her familiar things and is very happy.

                              • Honey, I'm Home! Can't believe it. The planets aligned and I got the last seat from Chicago to Portland, and I drove home right ahead of a snowstorm. So happy to be home!!!!!!!! There aren't enough exclamation points in the whole world. Although I am feeling very guilty about leaving Mom alone tonight. My sister arrives tomorrow for a week to take care of her and take her to all her appointments and such.

                                Am hopeful about my Mom but every time this happens it is a little worse. While I admire her ferocious independence, I frankly am also tired of it. It is her life and her decisions to make, but it does affect other people, namely her adult children, A LOT. Okay, nuff of that. I am very, very grateful she has come through this and is much better.

                                Stayed primal the whole time. And I say primal because I had an ounce of cheese and put regular milk and cream in my coffee and tea. Try finding goat milk at the hospital. Or my mom's! You know, there is really no way of telling your loved ones that you make all your own food from scratch and eat as much local and organic as possible without sounding like a pretentious twit. But it did break my heart to make and serve instant mashed potatoes from a bag. (I did not eat them. Do I even need to say that?) You would not believe the list of ingredients on that mashed pots bag. I swear, there were at least fifty, and most of them unpronounceable. And why? Why? Why? You can just boil a potato and smash it!

                                Can't wait to get back into regular normal life. My life is pretty ordinary and dull, but I like it fine.
