Here in the South, we've been eating corn on the cob for weeks! While I'm not crazy about the heat, I love the long growing season we have. We grilled some corn for lunch yesterday and I made corn and black bean salsa with tomatoes, lime juice and cilantro for dinner. Delish!

Aha! I had a sneaking suspicion you were a fellow Iowaegien. I'll be on the lookout for corn too.

I'm putting off finishing the business of unpacking and laundry. Suitcases are still in the middle of the floor.

So if she were to take an antibiotic in the morning, she either should take the probiotic in the evening or not take it at all?

Grandson just left to volunteer at a local bingo. We sure had a good supper before he left, sweet corn, cheese burgers and for dessert it was ice cream with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.

She should take the probiotic. Is her antibiotic once a day or twice? If it's twice a day, take the probiotic at lunch time with a meal. Once a day antibiotic, take the probiotic at night with a light snack.

The probiotic will help her avoid having diarrhea caused by the antibiotic.

I took a nap late this afternoon. When I woke up I stood up and my legs gave out. They were in so much pain, I couldn't stand. What the hell is going on. So I took two Vicodin. I usually only take one, sometimes only a half.

Two Vicodin are one more than my system can handle. I got so sick. Spike was here. We went back over what I had done during the day. When I mentioned the Vicodin, he realized what I was experience was a slight overdose. My system can not handle two. It is just a too high a dose for me.

So I ask Spike how long will this strange sick feeling last. He figures out what the direction say for a full day of taking them, does the math and tells me two hours at the least. He was right. I am just beginning to feel it leaving my system. What I don't understand is folks who want to commit suicide by overdosing with pills. If they have to go through what I just went through, it is a lousy way to die. And I only took two. I am supposed to take two four times a day. Time to talk to my doctor. A very scary moment for me.

What strength are your Vicodin, you can answer me in PM if you want. I know I had problems with the 7.5 dose, but not the 5 or 10. Unexplainable, but there it is.

I find that I feel nauseous if I take pain meds on an empty stomach. If I eat a little something first, I don't get that reaction.

Just came in after looking in the night sky at the Super Moon. WOW!!!

If you have clear skies and the opportunity, please go out and take a gander. It's beautiful.
