20150107 Night Edition

I’m listening to “Let it go”. This song has been rolling through my head for days. I finally just bought it on ITunes. I love it but need to purge it from my brain. Listening to it repeatedly is the only way I know of to do this. 

Pain levels kept me home today. Only thing I did was feed/water the birds, rabbits, and men. 
Eating makes the pain worse. 
Made a spring stew for the fellas tonight. Sliced spuds into the crockpot. Added spices, fresh Swiss Chard, carrots, cabbage, a little Sauer Kraut. Topped with pork steaks and red onions grilled on the Panini press. 
It was good but hurts like hell. 
Oh well, life gets Teejious 
Have a good night

20150701 Morning Edition

Hello all,
Sorry, I was distracted yesterday, and my pain levels were pretty high. This morning, I’m sitting just at the desk. I’ve been up half the night, the pain was so bad I wanted to vomit.
Still fighting that particular urge.
Suffering is relative to me. Yes, the pain is there. My abdomen is as hard as a rock, and moving isn’t my top priority today. I’m just trying. My Dr says that this is an ulcer. I just don’t know. I take expensive meds for an ulcer and it feels better for a little bit. Then the pain just comes back again, worse than before.
So, what did I do yesterday? Again, not blog worthy information. Dad and I had ham steak and potatoes for supper. I did as much as I was allowed physically. Pain levels are currently well, curl up in a ball.
I’m trying though. There’s laundry to do, dishes to do, the living room needs decluttering and cleaning. I need to get my bedroom moved to the basement. Just lots of little things.
Pain is delightful you know.
Dad and Tim are talking about suspenders. So, those are going on the shopping list for Friday. I’m hoping that one of them can drive on Friday. I’m thinking that just being a passenger is a good idea.
Meanwhile, I’m going to go take a break.
I know, short essay this morning, but well. It’s hard to do much when you can’t get out of the curled up position.
Take care and God bless!
