Blessings to you & yours too, Anna.

We've had flowers (Cymbidiums & Lillies of valley) for about 1½ mos now here in the SF bay area. They are flowers which bloom in cooler weather. Can't say it was really warm these past few weeks. Only 1 day in past mo. the temps approached 70° here.

This is my first year I've lived in this area, so still getting used to it. It never really goes much below freezing or higher than 95ْْْ°(humidity 99%). LOTS of rain here, though. Am used to temp extremes such 120° + or -20° (windchill of - 45°) in Ohio.

I wanted to wish everyone a good week. James , I am keeping you and Jem in prayer. I hope she is feeling
better. Its hard when the ones you love are in pain.

Spring has returned to my area it was in the low 50's today.

jayabee52 2010-04-15 03:10:48 -0500 Report

Thank you very much Mary. Jem & I (especially Jem) need all the prayers we can get. You are right it is tough when the ones we love are in pain or distress and it seem like the Docs have run out of "miracles".

She's a real challenge for many of the Docs 'cause she is allergic to many of the medicines or antibiotics commonly used.

She's got a whole page in her medical file just listing everything to which she is allergic.

Regarding her feeling better, that's rather a day to day thing. Some days she's feeling OK and others not so good. Because her tachycardia has started up again, she's sleeping a lot. We took her to get a blood draw (about a dozen tests) today (wed 4/14) and it was the first time she's been out in about 1½ wks.

Thanks for your prayers Mary.
Blessings to you and yours too.

James my prayers and thoughts are with you and Jem. I willpray the Doctors find ways to assist Jem with all her medical conditions. I pray the two of you find comfort
and strength in each other.

Good evening everyone,
I keep hoping my life will slow down so I can actually spend some time here with my friends. That just isn't happening for me though! :( A week from Sunday, I will be going on vacation. Boy, do I ever need it! I am going to be busy getting ready this coming week for my trip.
So, I will be gone again for a while…not to worry. I hope you all stay well.
Sal :)

I woke up this morning to a surprise. The temp drop in the 20's last night. The rain turned to snow and the yard was
covered in snow. The wind was high and some areas lost power. We were lucky ours stayed on. Its suppose to be in the 50's Friday so it should all melt. My mind was in Easter and flower moods so it took a little adjusting.
How are you doing gma?

gma 2010-04-09 18:50:40 -0500 Report

Doing pretty good it has been warm here in the 60,s and 70,s now just waiting awhile to plant some flowers I hope the snow goes away soon for you

spiritwalker 2010-04-07 18:19:37 -0500 Report

Still here but having a problem with tracking at times. We are having a rain storm with lighting and thunder. The winds are gusting off the lake so I hope we don't have our power cut.

gma 2010-04-07 17:56:22 -0500 Report

Hope all is well where is everyone at no one is here anymore!!!

jayabee52 2010-04-07 19:11:26 -0500 Report

Howdy Deb I am here. Just havent posted here in a few days. Jem says thanks for your good wishes. We're OK, Jem is having more tachycardia problems and her water weight had been rising 'cause the diuretics she had been taking weren't working. Changed diuretics and now her weight is down then up then down again. We log her weight every other day then we send her vitals and BG#s to her endo and heart nurses 2x/wk.

They've taken her off of magnesium pills and are talking about doing a weekly infusion of Mg to bring her Mg levels back up. On Mg pills she was having diaharrea and losing a lot of electrolytes in the process so her electrolytes are all out of whack. They're needed for proper heart function. They're considering putting in a port-a-cath for the IV Mg and all her blood draws.

I don't know about Midget. The last I saw her post was on 03/15 on #25. Does anyone have contact info on her? All I can do is send an email to her through DC mail, which might or might not reach her. Or maybe she didn't see the notice on #25 about moving to #26 and got lonely and stopped posting at all. Her pattern seemed to be say Good morning in AM and then nothing for rest of the day until next AM, and then she would reply to querys put to her, if any. I plan to shoot her an email through DC mailbox, maybe she'll see it, or maybe getting an email in DC mailbox will cause an email sent to her outside email, if she has that feature turned on. If anyone has other contact info for Midget, please try to contact her.

Thank you for the easter wishes. I pray that yours was blessed also!

gma 2010-04-08 18:54:27 -0500 Report

Well sounds like our poor Jem is having a rough time. I will pray for her to get things under control tell her hi for me please. As far as Midget she was under the weather but is feeling better and told me to tell everyone hi for her.

salmanda 2010-04-08 20:26:13 -0500 Report

Hi James,
I hope Jem is getting better. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care.
Sal :)

jayabee52 2010-04-09 00:21:29 -0500 Report

I read to Jem your replies below. She said "Thank You" and expressed her love for you all. Thank you from me too.

And, Constance thanks for the reminder. I do my best to take care of myself. If I don't I know that I'll be no good for Jem. I want to be able for us to live as long as we can together.

Be well,

gma 2010-04-09 18:52:57 -0500 Report

Good morning everyone!
What a gorgeous day here in Southern Maine. It is cold, but sunshine galore. I just saw that it was 19 degrees this morning. Last Saturday it was 70 degrees for the high! That was a record for this time of year. I also heard on the news yesterday that the ice was "out" on all the lakes in Maine so fishing season is going to start earlier. What a wacky winter! It seems from all the comments here that our weather has turned upsidedown. I hope spring and summer follow their usual way…a little worried that we might get snow in June! LOL
Have a great day everyone!
Sal :)

I want to wish everyone a good day. Its wonderful here the sun is out, and the snow is gone. We should reach the 50's for temp.later this week.

Hello friends,
I haven't been around too much because I have been so busy at work. I still am, but snuck in for a bit to say hi. Hopefully in the next week things will quiet down so I can spend more time with my friends here at DC. I miss checking in with everyone, and feel like I am missing out on what everyone is up to these days.

Hi gma, it took me awhile but I found you. We had a greta week here in Wisconsin until Friday it was in the 40-50's. This morning woke up to
more snow. Its okay, not much, but it is colder again. I am happy with the week
of better weather. Its a sign that Spring will follow soon. I hope everyone has a good weekend.

gma 2010-03-21 08:54:56 -0500 Report

I think I feel "deprived". I live deep enough in the South that is has not snowed and stuck YET! And now that it's hitting the 60's, it probably won't. Anyway - I get 4+ months of a heat index 120 or higher - bet you don't roast like we do!
Happy Spring Everybody!

spring is my favorite time of year! Everything starts to bloom and winter is over. What could be better!!

salmanda 2010-03-22 08:24:11 -0500 Report

I agree Jeannie! I also love fall. I think it is also the moderate temperatures I love in spring and fall because I don't do well with heat. :)
