You aren't supposed to get dehydrated...I hope you are feeling much better.

It's a long story; I don't really want to get into the details. I just have a complex set of medical issues and managing them depends on balancing a lot of medications and supplements. A bad reaction from a new med for one condition combined with a complication from another condition and things got out of control.

I'm really lucky that I've been with my PCP for over 24 years, since I was first diagnosed with Crohn's disease, and he's a professor at the medical school where I used to work. All my doctors are, and they're exceptional.

Thanks, PF, you're being kind. It really does look better than the pic, it's not photogenic.

Will you be backing it? And I'm not being kind, just brutally honest.

I think I'll leave it as is. It's pretty heavy. Have a few more pairs of jeans and whacked off jean legs, may make some more lap blankets for the local nursing home.

I think I finally refigured out my sewing machine, I had the tension on 0. Not a good thing. Duh.

Yes, tension is important...I always feel tense when I have to sew anything...
