Thanks, ginnystar! When I had a colostomy, I had it for 13 months. Might have this illeostomy for 17 or so months. Was so tired, slept through 2 or 3 check bag alarms. Have my alarm set every 2 hours in the night so I don't have an overly full bag!

Tonight going to see The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. A musical comedy. Our daughter's boyfriend is the music director of the shows put on by The Shoreline Theater Company and he is often IN the shows as well (he is tonight). When they did The Producers he was Max Bialystock. SO good! The Company also runs a summer theater camp for kids. In a few weeks they will be doing The Wizard of OZ.

My doctor wants me to get up to 115 lbs. Then he'll perform the reversal surgery! Yay! Hopefully, that will happen before next year!

The show was great. So much talent and a lot of laughs. A bit of current events ad libbing that got plenty of applause.

It was a lot of fun. Adults "playing" middle school age kids with all their "just becoming teens" quirks. Great singing and dancing too. We knew most of the cast as they've been friends of our daughter and Mike SINCE about middle school (they are all now in their 30's).

Eldest is recovering nicely from his ulnar nerve surgery and the tingles have stopped for the most part. His hand is a bit smaller than the other and he needs to do a bit of physio to get his pinky finger back in line but very happy with everything so far.

We got to see my parents and had a lovely visit but had to call it a bit short due to heat. My mom is always cold and the rest of us were cooking. I was so hot I thought I was going to be sick. They have ac but she won't let anybody turn it on as she doesn't want a chill. It was well over 80 and for us, that's HOT!! Hubby, dad and myself hid out in the basement with a big fan going and it was bearable but going up those stairs was like walking in to a furnace.

BD, does your device have a camera or a way to record video? If so all you have to do it video or pictures of yourself cleaning up after the dog.

Good on you, BD1 I am a tad irk ed at my Alexa for I am trying to listen to DragonEye/Red Star Rising, fromBrillians Audio via Amazon program for Audio programs that is giving me spelling problems, on the oother hand I got to book four of The Tower and the Hive, ben t trying to get it to play it for a bit, its why I want to get Vicgter Streem OK's for that and those from TheLibary of Congress , for the Blind or Print Disabled ! I can put in bookmarks in the books unlike with here, and once downloaded I can take them with me. Learning how to get around without my sight is going to be harder but I am willing to go sighted gide, with someone show ing them my home area, with the Trek and my memory landmarking my area. I have done it with others and wished that I had it sooner, but the technology wasn't up to the task till now.

Bossy girl is now telling me when I can take a bath! Next time, I'll wait until she tells me, like I'm an imbecile!! Btw, ginnystar, what do you mean? "Good on you, BD1." Me taking a bath ain't her business! It's MY business! She'll tell me, "mind your own business!" Sorry, can't do that! That job's already taken! Had planned to change my system as well while in the bathroom! Next time, I'll ask her, "when can I take a bath?", like I don't have ANY sense!

As for that bossy girl, you are going to just have to find way to put up with her, till you can get back up to full power. Zenn Hugs , healing thoughts, and stay safe.

Sorry for your loss, zel! :_( On a different note, so far no leaks from the system I'm wearing right now. It's the same one I put on while in the hospital last week! Yay! So much for " you have to be messing with it to make it leak! " Just now, started leaking! :shrugs:

Bossy girl said she's gonna tell mom on me. I changed my system tonight! It's been 4 days since I put a system on! How often should I change the system, then?!? Once a month?? Bossy girl MUST want me leaking! I've read that every 3-5 days is recommended! I guess 2 times a week is best! The skin that was red and painful last week is healing! By the time I see my doctor, the skin should be completely healed!

Our son went to 2 "DJ" concerts in New York City over the weekend. I do not completely understand this although it has been "splained" to me. I grew up knowing that DJ's worked for a radio station, they played records and occasionally made silly comments. Apparently that is not what it means anymore. Luckily his girlfriend is house sitting in the city for the summer so he had an easy to get to place to stay. Oh to be young (and foolish!)

There's a girl in the house I'm in right now, she's acting like a baby! A 40 something year old baby! People baby her! A woman took coffee from her, baby had it in the bedroom ( not supposed to have cup/glasses in the bedroom). After the woman left, baby got more coffee! With some sugar as well! That's right baby the girl!! I think that's dead wrong!

Ridiculous news item of the day. An American family of tourists were hiking around Mount Vesuvius. They went around a gate onto a trail with "closed to hikers" signs and got to the edge of the crater, where they were not supposed to be. A 23 year old male fell in while taking a selfie. He was rescued. My feeling is the "volcano god" needed a sacrifice and they should have left him there! (yes, I am "kidding." I also hope they had to pay a huge fine and got immediately kicked out of the country. I suspect any sign would have been in several languages, including English. If not, Google would have given them an instant translation).

We get them here as well Priscilla. Huge signs in several languages warning people to stay away from the edge and at least one a year "I didn't see any sign" goes over. Luckily most are rescued but they should have to pay the full cost of it.

Dentist last week, we both had our teeth cleaned and hubby has been complaining for a few days about a sore spot. Not a big deal as he hates dentist visits. Saturday it's really bothering him but the dentist is closed until Monday, so early Monday he calls for an emergency visit and they get him in. He has an infection and will need the tooth extracted an an implant, well, implanted. He calls me on the way home to pick up his prescriptions, one for the infection and 1 for pain. Gets home has supper and takes 1 of each pill per instructions. We usually eat around 6 or so. Somewhere around 8 he mentions his hay fever must be kicking in as his eyes are swelling a bit. By 9 we're at the emergency room as his eyes have now swollen shut and his breathing is getting bad. Nurse takes one look at the meds and he's got an IV with benadryl and a steroid and is on oxygen. No change by 10 but not getting any worse so we wait. 11:30 or so the breathing is much better but the swelling is still bad so they give him another type of steroid, around 12 midnight the swelling is down a bit. He can at least see. Around 12:30 it's decided even though his eyes are a lot better (still swollen but he can see) and his breathing is fine they'd feel much better is he spent the night. Home I go, giving a ride to a young fellow who is in town for a construction job. He was on crutches after injuring his leg and couldn't get back to his hotel. We have no taxis and his hotel is 2 blocks from the house. Good deed of the day done and hubby was home bright and early this morning with a different antibiotic and a prescription for an epi pen. He was told he only needs the pen if we decide to travel. Good thing, those little suckers are expensive. Apparently hubby has a new allergy to amoxil.

Oh my gosh, Mausey. Your poor husband. I am so glad he is ok. That was a very bad reaction! Not only a bad reaction but he has to look forward to another dental visit! Poor man! Our current dentist just retired so we are on the search for a new one and thanks to Google think we may have found someone in our current town. I am also not thrilled by going to a dentist!

I haven't been to a dentist in years! Don't like it when they use a pick to get the plaque off! While I was in the hospital for 2 months, I'd scrape gunk off the teeth in or near the front using my finger nails! That was during the time I was on a food restriction because of my intestines being distended.

I hope the idiots in Italy have to pay the full cost of the rescue. People feel that signs don't apply to them.

We have had no mains water now for about six hours. Approximately every hour the estimated time of restoration according to the supplier moves back by about two hours.

Apparently this is because of a pump (yes, singular...not pumps) failure.

This apparently has taken the supply to our entire town and about ten miles north of us out.

Nice to know that critical resources like a fresh water supply have plenty of redundancy built into the system...

I really hope your water problem has been solved. We have a well. It is run by electricity. We lose power for a few hours maybe twice a year (unless there is the unlikely hurricane or ice storm). We have a small gas generator that will power the fridge, microwave and a few light bulbs. A small number go to the expense of installing a whole house electric (gas powered) generator but we don't feel it is cost effective. There is a Middle School just down the road from us, when power goes out the electric company is pretty quick about fixing our area.

Where did BD1's post go? Something about an electric cord in a puppy cage.

With our freeze/thaw cycle it's not unusual to have a water main go out. The town tries to give everybody notice about what's happening but can't really do much once one goes. We're small enough that almost everybody has friends or family that will have water and can take containers to fill up to get by. We've never had an outage longer than 6 hours so consider ourselves lucky. We did get a gas generator a few years ago because when we loose power it can be awhile and in the winter the furnace is rather important.

While dentist visits aren't a highlight of my day, I go twice a year. I'd rather put up with cleaning and scraping than pulling and dentures. My mom has been fighting to get a good fit with hers for over 2 years. They adjust and readjust but can't get them quite right. At least they don't slip out anymore so she can eat things that are a bit tougher than mashed potatoes. She absolutely loves potatoes and would eat them 3 times a day with gravy.

Hubby is 99% back to normal, his eyes are a bit puffy, but there is a lot of pollen with flowers, canola and flax all in full bloom.

Eventually got the supply restored about 1600. Just to put into perspective, that outage took out an entire city of 250,000 residents + about ten miles around it. We're not talking about a remote branch to a few dozen houses and businesses.
