Thanks, the pain lets me know I'm alive and every 2 hours, Mr. Bladder
will demonstrate that I can still walk. If I sleep 3 hours straight, I
feel very lucky. After 2 hours I get rid of 300 to 400cc, after 3 hours
at least 500cc. My record is 600cc because I was in a very deep sleep
and Mr. Bladder had a hard(no pun)time waking me up. I hate drugs. ^_^

My Dad went through 2 tough years with Multiple Myeloma along with
prostrate problems - on dyalasis for part of the time and in constant
pain from spinal compression fracture. He died at 84. Hang in there!!!

Thanks for good thoughts. I spent most of May in the hospital then the
doctors sent me home to die and I was put into home hospice care. At
1:00am July first I woke up with breathing trouble thinking I had thrown
up in my sleep and aspirated some vomit. So I went to the bathroom and
coughed and coughed then back to sit on the bed and when my breathing
got worse I yelled for my roommate to help me and hook up the oxygen
cylinder which I had never used. The regulator wouldn't seal so high
pressure oxygen spewed everywhere. That's when I told roommate to dial
911, by the time paramedics got there I was drowning in my own body
fluids due to a sudden onset of pulmonary edema. In the emergency room,
I told them they should stick in a catheter and start draining me. I
couldn't lie down because it felt like I was drowning so they shot me
full of Lasix, my kidneys kicked into overdrive and voluminous amounts
of urine started draining through the catheter into a big bag. When I
could breathe again I was sent to intensive care for a few days then to
a regular room for another several days then home after 5 days in the
hospital. I've spent more time in the hospital this year than I have in
my whole life. I was dropped from hospice because I wasn't declining and
my nurse would scold me for getting out and trying to work. I still
live in pain but at least I know I'm not going to drop dead no matter
how much certain Progressive Liberal Leftist Commiecrat Freaks wish for
it to happen. ^_^
Yes, you did write that the hospice expelled you,
for bad behaviour. Aparently, you had about as
much compatibility with Hospice as you do with
parochial Catholic Schoolag.
You sent back the defib unit that the tax payers
bought you? I bet they were shocked.
Hope the vet can help Sandy's skin problem.
In NYS, we keep being subjected to commercials for
something called Dinovite, or Dynovite. Food suppliment
for dogs that helps with itching.
My hospice nurse was like my little sister. We were sad to part company
and I miss her weekly visits. I'll have to call her and wish her and the
gals who work for the hospice care clinic a Merry Christmas. They miss
me too. I have Dinovite that I mix with Sandy's food and I actually
slip a generic Benadryl into a treat for her in order to help her with
the itching. I have to bathe her with a special shampoo for her skin
then something for the fleas. The critter has burrowed under her own
comforter on the floor next to me because I won't let her in my lap when
I'm trying to type. Is it a real dog when you can pick up an adult
specimen with one hand? ^_^

I figured out a way to weigh her which involves me weighing myself first
on my digital scale then stepping on the scale while holding her then
subtracting the previous reading. Basically using me as the tare weight.
My problem is that I'm often not steady enough on my feet to stand
absolutely still on the scale which causes an error reading. The end of
my thumb and her little paw is about the same size. Such a goofy little

Dang, I just remembered that I have a fish scale and a luggage scale
around somewhere. I'd have to put her in a pillowcase first because I
don't have a harness for her but I do have a little pink collar for her. ^_^
