SousChef and Kayelle, I'm so sorry for your loss.

She became more alert later today which has aided her ability to swallow - some water at least (rather than have it trickle down her throat).

Nevertheless I will bear in mind what you point out here. Thanks
Glad to hear that there has been an improvement. Thoughts and prayers continuing.

Thanks for all the kind posts. I posted here just to say what was going on with me (topic of this thread), i.e. not my intention to evoke sympathy.

My mother and myself are both made of strong stuff - both of us are fighters/survivors. I have a positive mindset so it is perhaps easier for me, than most, not to wallow on the negatives....although the inevitable reality looms.

Today was one of her better days.

Off to bed at 10.30pm as the clocks go forward an hour for British Summer Time at midnight and I want to make up for the hour I'm going to lose in the morning.

Brrrrr!!! I have 4 layers of sweaters and fleeces on and I'm STILL cold so I think it's going to be a double hot water bottle night tonight!

Have just embarked on a new Jacqueline Winspear as well so I'll take that to bed with me. And April's book group choice is Wilkie Collins "Woman in White" so that's going to be my next "Good Read".

Night-night. Sleep tight. Hope the bugs don't bite

Sounds like she is growing up really fast right before your eyes.

Today has been a day of resting. Yesterday morning I had my coat on and was all ready to go out the door for my doctor's appointment. It was 9:00 a.m. It is time for my six month assessment. I had a very minor headache. So minor, that sometimes I didn't even notice it. I was sitting on my bed, stood up and a violent storm of the dry heaves hit me like a bolder. I even vomited a bit. I have never done that before.

The Pirate called Winthrop and notified them what happened and that I wouldn't be coming in. I laid down and the dry heaves stopped. I would sit up and they would start again. I finally gave in. Took off my coat and laid down. Fell asleep. Woke up today at 4 p.m. At least the dry heaves were gone. And so was the minor headache that wasn't so minor after all.

So today was a day of recovery and rest. I must have been sicker than I realized. When I woke up to day, I felt so spent. So now I am just doing nothing. I don't know what I had other than the headache, but it is gone now.

Addie, I'm glad to hear that whatever it was is gone. Hope you are feeling better. Could it have been a migraine? Migraine's aren't just horrendous headaches. Mine come with visual effects and a mild to regular headache. My sister's often come with projectile vomiting.

No, not a migraine. I noticed it about an hour earlier, and it went away. Or so I thought. Evidently not though. I really felt fine until that dag drive heaves hit me. Whenever any time I don't feel good, I get the drive heaves. I guess I really didn't feel good that time, because the heaves were really hard. And I can stop them in a matter of one or two heaves. Not this time.

I am feeling much better. Thank you for the good thoughts.
