    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I feel like I have aged thirty years in the last two, metabolism wise. I never thought that body would just be taken like that. If I can figure out what's wrong and get it back, I'll never take it for granted again! this is me exactly! i didnt realize i had to resign in -- i had been reading along as if it was all the same with a new header. i am a bit slow.....

    i get it. i am SO grossly overweight after having spent my life on the thin side. i have gained 100 pounds over a two year span approximately. during that time my health took a dump, exercise was not possible...not even walking very far. now, i cant breath when i exercise but they keep telling me to lose weight. i eat gluten free and although i do eat too many carbs, i feel like i walk enough to compensate. i bought a fitbit and i am now following my steps and also working at physical therapy two days a week. GAH!!!!

    re: waking during surgery: i was having surgery done on my foot and had general anesthesia. i woke up while they we literally sawing the bone, heard the saw but felt nothing. they real quick loaded me with more meds and i went to sleep. and then i had an epidural with some drowsy meds for my hysterectomy when i was 29. i distinctly remember talking to doctor during the procedure, asking to seeing my uterus in the bowl and actually seeing it! i don't remember anything else, just that!

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    hello all. i have been offline for a week -- you wont believe why. well, you might! i went to vegas last weekend to use my christmas gift of tickets to see donny and marie. super looking forward to it, right. well just hours after landing, i ended up in the hospital with a suspected (on their part, not mine!) heart attack. after being there for about 20 hours, i said 'forget it' and left. it was a disgusting hospital and i was NOT missing that show for any reason. i saw the show, had great seats and...oh ...ran into donny and his family in the restaurant there. he was so very gracious and concerned about me. he invited me backstage after the show and chatted with me for a bit longer very privately. as a teen, i would have sold my soul for such a chance meeting. as a grown woman, i know that some things are just ordained by God and i believe this was just such a moment. i wasn't all screams and giggles like some of the other ladies there in the audience; just calm, happy and mature. it was the moment of a lifetime of dreams and i am so happy about it. i came home the next morning and ended up in the hospital again...for the same reason! three days later -- no heart attack but i do have a torn shoulder that the pain from mimicked a heart attack. ah...the life of a 62 year old., never dull!
  10. yes, you would need a view from the bottom to tell gender clearly. when my DIL was doing invitro, the slang was to look for a hamburger (girl) or a turtle (boy). thats how the genitals looks on the u/s. kinda silly but when you so desperately want a baby, you have to find the fun in the process.

    that is just not right.
  12. i have not watched this episode yet but wanted to say that i live near that gilman springs facility. for many years, as i drove that little two lane road past it, i would get a scary feeling over me. i knew, in vague, what it was but did not have any inkling it was a modern-day house of horrors. even now, i avoid driving over that way. that all being said, i also had a feeling that if i had ever seen anyone running on the street (i.e. escaping) near there, i would stop and see if they needed help because the feeling of evil is truly real there. i cannot explain it but it is truly not a nice place, contrary to how beautiful they have made it appear on the outside. oh and it has barbed wire fences around it and the cameras - they are no joke! it is creepy!

    one thing to keep in mind is that, at her age (i thought you said 13), she has a legal voice in court so IF you were to try to legally get custody of her, her wishes would be taken into consideration. if you could document that you support them 100% as you do, that may play into your favor. i am raising a grandchild right now - its no piece of cake, let me tell you. but the reason i hang in is because of this boy. who else does he have to count on? it sounds like your niece is in similar straights. bless you and your hubby for the strength you both share in your concern for this child.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    this is exactly how i read her posts. she may have had trouble conceiving...not everyone gets pregnant the first time they do the deed. my daughter in law wanted a baby so very bad. she had endometriosis, 4th stage. her odds of conceiving without assistance was zero. it is completely reasonable that jinger may have had similar issues and is so grateful for the baby she finally had. its also reasonable that she may have used birth control and was ever so happy to finally get to have a baby. you ladies summed up my position perfectly. i truly do not think she is being disrespectful or preachy at all. i think she is just a very happy mom.
