thanks for all the advice, maidrite!
i just took a nice hot bath to cure what ails me.
the only one that's not gonna work is the feeding tube one. it has to be replaced. i called the GI doctor today, and they wanted me to come in, but i was exhausted, so i'm going on tuesday, instead.

Excellent advice, Maidrite.

Now, can you supply me with an extra 6 hours per day for the next week?

lol jkath. i just said the same thing to dw yesterday. she was pestering me about when i was gonna get some work done around the house, just after i finished a 6 day, 57 hour work week, went food shopping, and was watching the baby while she cleaned up after his dinner (1 year olds like to re-deorate the kitchen with food every night).
sleep is so overrated.

Ahhhhhh, Bucky, the joys of parenthood...!

I was at the gym a couple of days ago, so was forced to watch (and read - there's closed captioning) the drivel they had on the TV screen in front of my treadmill. (I couldn't get the one in front of CNN) Anyway, it was a show saying that some mothers "suffer" from a recent new "disorder" from being tired. It showed these women saying "I just can't get any rest!" Ummmm, yeah. like none of us ever had that problem, and it's a new "disorder"? ...and they didn't show any dads!

Also, Bucky, your new flowbie came in this morning. I've unpacked it and checked it out. It's pretty cool, but why exactly does it have exhaust pipes? PS - I like the orange and yellow flames painted on the gas tank....

yes, it is! i sleep about twice a week but i DO lay down each day for several hours and my doctors have said my thinking and speech are still 'fluent and articulate' (i got ahold of my written medical records. fascinating stuff!) when i was in the hospital and couldn't sleep.
i'm having a baby next year if i can get pregnant, and i figure i'll sleep about the same then, anyhow, so i might as well be prepared.
and believe me, prescription sleeping pills are overrated. i take them and they just don't work half the time, at least not for a true insomniac like me.

Bucky, didn't you see the manual for the flowbie?
I got you the add-ons, but look at this! Ever seen one of these?

I'd say try the cucumbers on the eyes and an avocado masque today, Luvs. And, while you're at it, a nice mayo-avo masque for your hair too. Not only will you look beautiful, you'll smell like a salad!

On a more serious note, Luvs, my sister's been sick for many years, and went to a large medical center for more testing again. This time they think it may be partially due to her pancreatitis. What you didn't tell us (after saying you'd had it too) is she said 10% of all panc. cases are fatal. That's really scary.
