Shaker, what were you doing on the computer at 2 a.m.? I sometimes can't fall back asleep during the night, but I love just lying there and saying, "sleep, sleep, sleep" in my mind. Works - sometimes! lol Doesn't seem possible you have a grad party in your family, he's not old enough! lol We have a graduation in ours too, Newton step greatgranddaughter graduates this year, but I haven't heard anything about a party. That family is notoriously known for "mentioning" something 3 days beforehand and then wondering why no one could show up. I've asked my DIL several times about one, but she's heard nothing and I guess other than mention it once, leaves it alone until the event, if there is one, is open conversation. My son, OTH (you know him) has no problem in saying, "What the h*ll, is wrong with you? You can't invite people 3 days before something and then expect them to drop everything and be able to come. People have plans of their own, you know!" Gotta love him, you always know just where you stand with that son!
Acid, acid, acid, last night and I'm blaming the delicious clam chowder. It was soo good, but soo rich too. Worth every drop of acid, lol As long as I have the acid floating around there anyway, will have a chocolate donut for breakfast and get it all out of my system at once!
Kargiver, the dr. thought the reason for my cholesterol drop was the red yeast rice which I had said I would take, but because of all this stomach madness, I hadn't taken any. So then, he was giving me credit for really changing my eating habits, but when I confessed I really hadn't, he said it must have been the increased thyroid med - had increased my metabolism, and that that has something to do with it. I don't care what, just pleased with the numbers and how I feel in general. BTW, I did ask about tumeric and also grape seed oil extract. Oh my goodness. A holistic dr. he is not, and said so in plain English, even knocking my 500 mg of vitamin C I have taken since I was in my 30's. "I'm a scientist, and I place my belief in scientific tests, and there are no tests that prove these substances heal anything." On and on and on, even getting to the old days when "snake oil" was sold off the back of wagons that was supposed to cure everything. Hit a nerve when I asked about those, I guess. Anyway he felt the grape seed oil extract certainly wouldn't harm anything. Now I've got to go back and look at the article I had torn out of the paper and see what that was supposed to be for!
Way too long a post to expect anyone to sludge through so early in the morning, so I'll go and make my cup of tea and my forbidden donut.
Hats, concerned that this family member may be a member of your immediate family. I'm hoping I'm wrong. Nothing worse than waiting for biopsy test results, we have been through that so many time with my dear DIL from Newton, even just a couple of weeks ago. Hold good thoughts in your mind about the outcome, and I will do the same for you.
