Today was not a bad day. I did eat some beef and thought that could cause a problem. Right now it isn't too bad. Hope it stays that way.

GrandmaKarenG - ice cream bothers me a lot. I will either get D or extreme gas. I take Lactaid or other gas pills but it doesn't always help.

Darlene - sorry that you have had some ups and downs lately with your issues too. I have not yet tried Keto but glad that you explained that it could still bother us with the fat.

It is a horrible disease that has hit just about everybody in some way or another, whether family, friends or self. I sure hope they can find a cure or a way to stop it before it even starts.

I have been having ups and downs with my IBS. It hasn't been too extreme, but has hit a couple times. I thought I would try the Keto to see if it would help any, but increasing fat sets off the IBS. Then I get upset and eat sweets like ice cream or sherbet (what I like best). So far they haven't set the IBS off, but I'm sure they are really upping the blood sugar. I just have to get in a middle ground, I think. I am tired of taking drugs for it, though.

Yes, cancer has touched my family also. My mother and MIL both died of cancer. It is definitely a dreaded disease of me and so many. I have been up and down with my TSH count (thyroid) and have to have another blood test to check it Monday. ugh.

I have been feeling okay other than a terrible headache tonight.

COUNTRYCAROL1- I will be keeping you and your son in my prayers. It is so hard sitting on the sideline watching our loved ones go through this and knowing we can only let them know how much we love them and keep praying for them and that someday Cancer will be cured.

Thanks everyone! Prayers and all my best to you all and your loved ones. Cancer has touched a lot of people in my life too.

I ended up taking last Friday off to be with the bf's son too. His mom came back and picked him back up later that evening. I wasn't feeling so great myself Saturday. I had a headache that wouldn't go away, my stomach was feeling a little off too. And I was having hot and cold spells. I just rested and watched TV. Luckily I was feeling a little better Sunday, and each day was feeling a little better. Our new CPA couple was fighting something off last week too, Lucy said that they just slept a lot and rested last weekend too. My boss said he thought he was fighting something off this Monday. He came in and asked for the heater to be turned. It has been cooler and raining a lot still.

I was supposed to work today and drive up the coast dropping off and picking up bookkeeping. But just as I got to the office my boss called and told me to just call the clients and reschedule to tomorrow instead. It was raining really hard at that time and supposed to rain all day. But be better tomorrow during the time that I would be out. He said he didn't want me to have to drive in that heavy rain in the traffic. So I just got to make a few phone calls, and run to the post office close to our office and head back home. I stopped at the store next to the post office and picked up some goodies for the family. I don't think we have anything special scheduled for tonight.

Probably just stay home where we can stay dry, warm and safe. Happy Valentine's Day and all my best to you and your loved ones!

Carol, I am sorry that you are going through such a hard time with your family. I hope that your son gets through all that and the cancer will be kicked out of his body. Hope that his white blood cells get built back up so his treatment can continue. That is a lot to go through for you with your husband and brother having gone through it and now your son. Stay strong.

Deb, I am so sorry to hear of your grandson's battle with cancer and passing. Unfortunately, our
family has been through this before. My brother dies from cancer and my husband died from cancer. My brother had the radiation, but refused the chemo. since he was terminal & my husband died before he was able to start the chemo., so I have not personally experienced it until now. When I call my son he seems annoyed whenever I ask him questions. I know he has a lot on his plate with a new family & new baby, but it is still hard being a mom and seeing it happen. Sorry, for going on so much.

It has been a long time since I have been on here. It looks like there have been a lot of problems in families and I hope that things go better.

I have started in a Keto class at the health food store here. Class is going good, my diet not so good. I am afraid I am going to have to go back after some bread again. I got rotisserie chicken yesterday and did okay eating it last night (the breast only), but today I ate leg and thigh and got more fat and got sick again. That just won't work. I don't want to have to keep taking Imodium, so will get some bread and see if that will help. Other than not increasing the fat to increase calories, I will try to lower my carbs to just above the Keto level. The class teaches more of what fats are good and isn't just something like the article on Spark talked about. It also says that after a certain point there is a cycling of it, not just staying on strict Keto the entire time.

I have been doing okay. Still watching out for hubby. It has been two weeks since he got out of the hospital. He was so ill and we have several doctor's appointments for him this month. But I am getting out and trying to do what I can to stay active. It is very cold here. I am definitely ready for Spring.

CountryCarol - praying for your son. I know this has to be so tough.

Deb - I know that your family certainly suffered when you lost Drew to cancer. Glad that your health is improving.

Janette - I know that is unusual for your area to get cold weather. I hope that it has warmed up.

Janette, sorry to hear your boyfriend's son has been so ill. I hope you do not get what he has.
Hope he is doing better,

Deb, thank you for the prayers. He still has a difficult journey ahead. They cancelled his chemo. this week due to his low white count. It makes me so sad to see him the way he is right now.

All my best to you all and your loved ones too!

We got down to 29 supposedly last night here. It was cooler in the day and in the night for sure. We went ahead and turned on our portable heaters. We have a sick kid home too. He is 14 and fighting a cold and stomach virus. Luckily I was scheduled to be off today, so he didn't have to stay home by himself. As his mom is out of town on a business trip, and his dad had to work too. He was home sick with his mom Tuesday in the morning and then came over here later in the afternoon when she had to leave. We thought he was doing better yesterday so the bf sent him to school, but he supposedly threw up again after school. So we kept him home again today. Not sure what we will do tomorrow. So far he isn't throwing up again. I supposedly get to go into work later tomorrow if I am going in, but that could change. I was supposed to be off today, but ended up having to run into the office earlier this afternoon to give a client some papers. Luckily I didn't have to be there long, so the kid wasn't home by himself long. But he is 14, so I wouldn't be so worried about it if he did.

We got snow in our local mountains again. But not right where we are. Take care

DEB2448, Wow! That must be hard having the flu twice. Hope you are feeling better soon.

My son's PET scan came back good which is such a blessing. I miss my happy go lucky son. Now when I see him it makes me sad. It will be nice to see him better someday.

Linda, hope your symptoms improve. My stomach is doing ok, but the stress from my son does seem to react somewhat. I am trying to think positive, but saw him yesterday and he did not look well. He is thin & pale. His white count has gone up some. He sounds like he has cold symptoms. The last time that happened he ended up with pneumonia. He was supposed to have his PET scan last week, but they cancelled it since the machine broke. He is not waiting to hear for them to reschedule. The oncologist said they'll have to cancel the chemo. this week if he hasn't had it yet. If he doesn't hear from them he is supposed to call him.

I had a terrible bout of D this evening. It may be the food that we made today I am not sure. I think I really need to have another colonoscopy this year. It has been 4 or 5 years and they like to see me every 3 due to polyps.

CountryCarol - I am sure that is the best thing, to eat your own food at home. Happy that you are doing well.

Linda, I am so sorry your husband has been so ill. I hope he recovers soon. That is amazing your IBS has been ok through all that. I remember when my late husband would become ill how it would effect me.

My IBS has been doing ok lately. Probably due to the fact I've been making my own food & haven't been going out to eat. I always do so much better when I stay home and eat.

My husband has had a rough 5 weeks. December 21st he had a stent put in his coronary artery. 10 days ago he was hit with a kidney stone and in intense pain. This past Wednesday he was put in the hospital with blood clots in his leg and it spread to his lung which is a pulmonary embolism. 4 days in ICU for him. It has been a terrible time. Surprisingly, with my stress, I didn't have a problem with IBS.

Dar - I had this happen to me a couple of months ago. I was driving home when I had an attack. I thought I would make it home and didn't. It really makes us feel terrible when this happens.

CountryCarol - what an adorable baby.'

Janette - glad that things seem to be going well at work.

Our new tax company is getting all moved in and seems off to a good start. Especially since they still haven't even met the boss yet, they have just talked over the phone and emails from what I gathered. They seem really nice. They had a client walk in for them this morning before they were in the office, but I just called them on their cell phone and they told him to come back later that they would be in the office in an hour and be there until around 6 pm today. They seem nice enough and friendly each time I see them and talk to them. The wife was joking with me this morning that I am going to pick up Spanish with them in the office. I told her that is fine with me. That it has been so long ago since I took any classes in it that I only remember a few words if I hear them or see them written. I told them that I would just be in and out of the office this week at least. I told the wife she was welcome to use my desk if she wanted as the client that came to see them early in the morning had come back and was in the office with her husband. And she was trying to call their clients that usually come in for their taxes in early January to let them know of their move. So while her husband was with the client the wife came out and sat in our waiting room across from my desk. And I wasn't even sitting at my desk today, I was in the back room at my boss's computer. So I didn't see any reason why she couldn't make use of my big desk if she wanted, especially since I wasn't staying in the office long today anyways and wasn't expecting any clients of our own to come in. I showed them how to turn the big screen TV in our waiting room on and to get it to Pandora so they could listen to music if they wanted. I even set up their favorite channel on it called "Pink Martini", they said since I listen to the Dean Martin or Sinatra type stations the most that they thought I would like it too. And I do, I even added it to my Pandora on my home computer.

I was in and out of the office all last week. Worked Monday morning, Wed afternoon and Friday morning in the office and the rest of the time I was working at home on bookkeeping. I was even doing bookkeeping this weekend and Monday.

I was expecting my boss back today, but now he is not coming in until the end of the week. So since he wasn't coming in today after all he told me to only work half day in the office. I get to work on bookkeeping at home again this week and only go in when clients need me. So I will go in sometime tomorrow to get sales tax info from one client when he makes his way down to us. Friday I might end up going in to see the boss, and or to run a payroll. Then next week I will probably start having to spend more time in the office during the day time.

I hope all is going well with you all! Take care

Luckily I have been doing better with the IBS. I have been still having stress over my son, but when I get too stressed I have been working out which seems to help. He had his 4th session of chemo. Just recovered a few weeks ago from pneumonia. I feel so helpless seeing him like this. On a positive note, his baby boy just turned 2 months yesterday.
sorry, whenever I seem to post photos even though they're straight, it will post sideways.

I am doing fine on the IBS area too. Glad to hear you are also. Yes you might want to get the other issue looked at or at least talk to the nurse over the phone to see what they think about it.

I am doing okay. I now have found that I am having pain in my left hand. I also have found a knot on my left thumb. I don't know if it is a cyst or something. Guess I should go to the doctor and get it checked out.

At least my IBS isn't causing me problems right now.

Supposed to rain all day and evening here in Escondido, CA. Glad I get to work from home to doing bookkeeping. And luckily it should be clearer after today. We need the rain, but I would prefer it overnight so I don't get drenched trying to run to work and running errands. And don't like it so heavy that it is hard to see where you are driving.

Keep warm and have a great day and weekend.

Sorry I have just been swamped with work lately, so I haven't been able to get in here as much.

I got drenched Monday a couple of times loading and unloading, and then reloading and unloading stuff into my truck for work. Then I had to go up to the northeast part of Escondido to see a client and the rain decided to come down harder just as I got on the freeway. It was hard to see in front of me, so I just kept my distance from the other vehicles and went slower to where I was going. I was glad to get back home and change clothes. I had to do work from home for several hours after that too.

Yesterday I had to go into work for a bit and run some more errands for work, but luckily I didn't have to bring a lot with me that time. And I timed it just right so it was just light showers or not raining at all. Then I came home and worked several more hours again on bookkeeping and such.

Another rainy day here. I am waiting for more info to add a new employee to one of my pay roll accounts before going into work for a short bit today. I need to run to payroll accounts and then come back home and work on bookkeeping again.

All my best to you always

Had a little problem with the IBS today but now I feel much better and I hope I continue feeling better. If I focus on something then I'm fine but sometimes it doesn't work.

I have been doing okay but I do have a feeling my IBS may kick in. Belly is aching. I also have a headache so I am not sure how I will feel in the morning. It has been a cold week with snow moving in over the weekend. I have been eating poorly and I know that is why I don't feel well.

CountryCarol - the little baby is so adorable. I am sorry that your son's chemo had to be delayed due to pneumonia. Praying about the PET scan.

Dar - glad to hear that you are feeling better.

My IBS seems to be under control lately which of course is great since the stress is still there. My son's chemo. is delayed due to the recent pneumonia. Praying the PET scan will show an improvement after all he's been through. On a positive note his baby is doing wonderful. He is almost 7 weeks old and has grown 2" since birth. His 3 month clothes are starting to get shorter. He was born at 9 lb 1 oz. so had a head start lol
Sorry for the rotation of the picture, I couldn't figure out how to rotate it. My picture was not like that lol

So far the D has been under control the last 2 days and I'm happy about that. Now I wish it would stop altogether and be normal like I use to be. I wish they can find the cause for IBS and treat it for those who have both C and D. The only one who knows everything is God and he knows the cause of the IBS.

I have been having a lot of gas pains today. I do hope that it doesn't mean that I am going to have D later. I went to the gym today and really enjoyed my workout class.

Deb - thank you for the prayers.

Dar - I know what you mean about the D. It so often acts up at the worse time. I just hate having it too.

CountryCarol - glad to hear the better news about your son.

My IBS has calm down but once in a while it flares up and I don't like that cause I have to get my daughter out of the bathroom all the time and that is when she is getting ready for work. But the only time I do go is when I get up in the morning and I take my meds and pour me a cup of coffee and head in my bedroom and when I get into bed that is when I have to go to the bathroom when no one is in there so I'm lucky.

Deb, I am sorry that you are sick. Hope you are on the mend soon

Linda, I'm sorry to hear about your family members. My son was released from the hospital yesterday. He is still dealing with the infection. Poor guy, came home and couldn't hold his baby.

I've been having such a hard time sleeping since my son has been in the hospital. I cannot stop thinking of my son and his family.

Wednesday was a rough day. There have been some sick family members which has stressed me out. One of the son in laws has been in the hospital all week. I think that the stress came down on me hard. I had terrible D.

Dar - good for you. Glad that you are trying to live a good life.

Deb - I am sorry that you are sick. Feel better soon. IBS on top of it is really rough.

CountryCarol - so sorry that your son also has an infection.

My IBS has calmed down from a few days ago. But I know it is stress related with my son in the hospital. He has been battling cancer and ended up with an infection. He did say he was feeling better. His heart rate is elevated, I wonder if it is stress related.

This evening I have a bad case of D. It is very irritating. I got through Christmas Eve and Day without problems. I hope that this is gone soon. Drinking some peppermint tea. I hope that it helps the cramping and D.

It almost happened before but I made it but this time that dream felt real so that when it happened. Usually I do wake up but this time was different. So yesterday I took a lot of ant-diarrhea meds and when I told the doctor earlier this year he said that was fine if I go a lot but I hardly take them but when I need to then I take them. I went to Mass this morning and afterwards I cleaned up the church and came home. I poured me a cup of coffee and went into my bedroom and got on the bed to get my feet warm and the coaster got stuck on the coffee cup and I spelled it on me in bed so that is ok but thank goodness I didn't go in my bed like I did the other night. I did pray to God to stop this at night and I also told Him I think the Devil was doing this to me so please stop it and give me happy dreams for now on.

So sorry that happened Darlene! When ever I am having a dream that I need to go to the bathroom I just wake myself up and get up and go, just in case it is my body trying to talk to me. So I have never gone in my sleep. But my body seems to respond well to getting up and trying to go. So I have just made it a practice. The only time I remember going pee in my sleep was when I was a young child and was camping out in the desert. I slept in the back cargo area of a station wagon. I was in there by myself as my mom and dad were in a big tent and my older brother was sleeping on a cot and my older sister was sleeping in a pup tent. It was cold and dark and I didn't want to get out of the car to find a bush or dune to hide behind to go to the bathroom. I was afraid of stepping on a scorpion or snake, or running into a coyote or such. My mom started cutting off my fluids early in the evening and took me to go find a bush or dune several times before bed so that I wouldn't keep having that problem. I got in the habit of cutting my fluids off and trying to go to the bathroom several times before bed all the time and that worked.

If I don't cut off fluids, or don't try to go several times before bed, my body wakes me up in the middle of the night now. And if I am nervous for what ever reason, my bladder seems on double time, constantly waking me up during the night.

Happy Friday and Merry Christmas too!

Janette, Leader of the Wii Fit Plus Team.

I hate dreams that you have to go to the bathroom and go in your bed. That is what happened to me this morning early. So now I have to pray and ask God to help me stop dreaming these dreams.
