  • Can you flavor the broth differently for her? Broth seems so benign - like water - there's got to be some way she would like it atleast a bit more. Then again, kids will often find some complaint for healthy food (my house can't be the only one)! Yay for you to let her know how important it is.

    • Caitlyn is my pickiest kid when it comes to food.

      I'm back up to 210. Needless to say I'm not too happy about that. And the washer died this morning. I wish it would've waited until next month, but oh well. I feel like the stress is getting to me right now.

      • I wish I didn't let the little things get to me. Like the washer dying for example. I'm sitting here getting ready to leave and all I want to do is cry. I'd just like one month where it didn't feel like something would go wrong.

        • Geo, its not a little thing though, nothing to do with money is a little thing.

          • Luckily, the MIL is letting us use her washer and dryer until we get one. This is helping out immensely.

            Clint and I attended the financial planning class that is required for a Chapter 13 to be discharged in the US. It was a very good class and we are thinking about taking the budgeting class that is available for us next month. Since neither one of us has done a budget before, we feel like this is a good idea and best of all, its FREE! After the class today, we were going to go up to Childrens Hospital in Columbus to visit our friend whose son is a patient there. Clint calls the mom to see if it was still OK for us to come up and her son has taken a turn for the worse. She finally manned up and spoke with the lung specialist and he has actually told her that a lung transplant is impossible right now and our friend said that this is a "lose/lose situation". The specialist basically told our friend that if she believes in miracles, to pray. Her son's left lung is totally gone and the right one has about 1/4 healthy material and has staph infections, a cyst and a ton of fluid and they haven't seen any pus in it. If any of you believe in prayer, please say one for Stephen M in Ohio. He needs them.

            • He, his family, and y'all are in my thoughts.
              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              • Oh no, I have no religion at all, but I am really hoping Stephen pulls through this, thinking of him and his family.

                • Today was a fun day. Went to a bridal show with some friends and one of which is getting married. I was bad and had a piece of cake so am totally out of ketosis.

                  • I forgot to add that at the Bridal show yesterday, there was a booth for a local chiropractor's office(one of the more reputable ones here). They did this thermo scan on my neck and my neck is totally out of whack. I have my first appt with them this Saturday. The woman who did the scan kind of turned white and looked at me like I shouldn't be walking or even holding my head up.

                    • I need to see my chiro too. I miss him. I know I need an adjustment because I am beginning to have my arms go numb at night.

                      • I got lucky. The chiro was telling me to use heat, especially damp heat, when I asked him what I could do to help the healing and I discovered the Y has a sauna. I spent all of 10 minutes in there after working out in the 85*F pool. Somehow, those two things convinced my neck to straighten out, almost to the point he couldn't find what had originally been wrong.

                          Yay!
                          Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                          • I think this damage has been going on for about a good long while. I've had 4 car accidents. The last was in 2009 and I rear ended a Jeep Commander and I remember my head bobbing forward real fast and snapping back. Would explain all the neck pain I've had over the years. I know my mom and second oldest sis have terrible backs but that would be from all those years of lifting dad. When the chiro asked me if I had issues with headaches, sinuses, allergies and asthma and I responded with a yes, I would've never of known that the upper vertebrae contribute to that kind of stuff(even though I am still not fully convinced this is true). I still kind of look at chiros as quacks(mom's influence). I'm just curious to hear what they have to say.

                            • Chiros are brilliant for lots of things.
                              My second son had a fairly quick pushing stage (20 mins) cos I was in a hurry for the pain to stop. And I think that put him out a bit, as he did cry heaps in the early days. A few visits to the chiro (very gentle adjustments), and he was good again.
                              Mine helped me with various issues over the years too. Now I use my physio only, he has lots of tools he uses, depending in the issue (ultrasound machine, accupuncture etc).
                              Different parts of the body relate to other areas, it is quite fascinating, and can't wait to learn more about it, as I go through my naturopathy course

                              • I saw one 12 years ago as I could only walk bent over. Yeah, not good. Once I could walk straight, I stopped going.
