WOO-HOO! My great-niece Elizabeth is out of the NICU and into intermediate care, as well as being in a regular crib instead of an incubator. She's also gained over two pounds in the last six weeks, so she's up to four and a half pounds. At five ... Read more

I am so excited! My new great-niece now weighs over four pounds. Her oxygen is down to 21%, which is room air, so they should be able to discontinue the breathing support soon. I said from the git-go that she's a feisty little firecracker, and I... Read more

They helped me sit up on the edge of the bed today. Harder than I thought, but it has been a year. They measured me to get the right size chair, which they currently don't have. It's a process, not an event. I'm pleased with it. Meantime, I get ... Read more

I know I'm getting old. But if I ever turn into a crabapple who hates everything and enjoys bad news, PLEASE lock me up. Yesterday she told my best friend Sacha that I take up more than my half of the space, that she wants the stacker with MY be... Read more

Today is my great-niece Elizabeth's six-week birthday. She's progressed way beyond what they told my niece to expect. She's almost ready to be weaned off of breathing support, and she's as opinionated as all get-out. She lets them know -- LOUDL... Read more

Not even seven AM and roomie is already in full gripe mode. She's only happy when she's miserable. I've asked for peanut butter and toast for breakfast. Sounds weird at my age, but it's actually delicious. Also full of protein and fiber. Wh... Read more

Today is my adopted sister's birthday (she passed nearly three years ago). I still miss her every day. Thank God some of her kids have stayed close with me. I'll never have grandchildren, but thanks to them I have two way-beyond-awesome great-ni... Read more

I am so excited! My little great-niece is almost ready to be taken off of supplemental oxygen. She's also a world-class eater and a feisty little spitfire who isn't afraid to let people know -- loudly -- when she disapproves of something.The wom... Read more

Yesterday my best friend Sacha came to visit and brought some insanely delicious nachos for lunch. We had a great visit. Sacha is a trained massage therapist, and whenever she visits she massages my feet and calves with cream. They were so dried... Read more

Last Sunday on Facebook I posted on a couple of knitting pages I follow that I was having trouble with a sock I was doing. I got a couple of replies stating that I shouldn't be knitting on the Sabbath and that the difficulties I had were Divine ... Read more
