MUSHROOM SEASON!!! I was picking up sticks in my yard when a tiny gray morel caught my eye.  Then another, and another! The floodgates opened, and I wound up with 46, about 10 being yellow morels. When I mowed, I discovered several more I had missed. This might be THE season. Yahoo!

That is a relief!!! I know a lot of us have been worried about Carl when we hadn't heard anything for weeks. Thanks Kathy.

Carl checked in with us on friends!! I'm so relieved as I'm certain the rest of you are!
It's such a helpless feeling to be concerned about one of our friends and not to be able to find out if they are okay. Welcome back Joan.

A good lazy King's Day to you Plinius.

Comment by Plinius on April 26, 2015 at 11:36pm

Back to food - breakfast first in an hour or two. I'll fill the blender with fruit, some cocoapowder, linseed and a little fruit juice and there's breakfast. It's the King's day today, the first flags are going up. A good excuse for a lazy day!

I found the hallucinations from opiate painkillers bad enough - I can't understand how people can become addicted to them.

Sometimes a plain warm water enema can take the place of a laxative and it need not be invasive. Just use a hot water bottle hanging up high in the shower and let gravity do the flow. Try that twice and no laxative is needed. Any person trying to strain or force is doing thier body harm.

Comment by Daniel W on April 26, 2015 at 6:18pm
I think whenever opiates are given, a laxative should be considered immediately. It is not always needed, but life threatening constipation happens a lot. Hallucinations snd falls are common. People dont understand how dangerous constipation can be.

I used to make my own yogurt. It's really easy. Maybe I should start again. I have not tried straining it Greek style. It would be less sour then.

Despite my paternal family's pride in all things German - or because of it - I don't care for a lot of German foods. I do love sauerkraut. I should make more of that, too! And when I get some time I still want to create some lentil or garbanzo braunsweiger.

Daniel, I appreciate your concern. I have no plan at this time for bone strengthening. I see my primary physician in Spokane tomorrow and a new doctor, an orthopedic physician, on May 5.

In the meantime, I am doing exercises to increase my arm and hand strength. Because of my immobilized broken left arm I could not hold a glass or cup. Today, I carried my glass of prune juice to the dining room; at noon, I held my coffee mug firmly and made it to the table. Laura stood next to me in case I needed help. I free her up more each day.

My normal routine is a daily Vitamin D at 1000 IU. I have my pills and can keep them going. My normal routine is a serving of yogurt daily. I prefer Greek, unflavored, too. Thanks, Daniel, for reminding me. Have you ever made your own? I haven't. I buy ready-made yogurt from a company that is GMO-free, and no hormones,  i.e. genetically engineered hormone rBGH, also called rBST. Some Tillamook products are rBGH and rBST free. We read the labels. 

The whole family reads labels and follows guidelines via research. None of us watch TV or follow companies' propaganda.

When I left the ER in Spokane, I had pain relief. We picked up an Rx for pain and drove to Newport. I took three pills, was constipated and in ever increasing pain until I was admitted to Newport hospital. The pain Rx turned out to be oxycodone. It now has an allergy notice at my pharmacy. I will never knowingly take it again.

Laura said she saw me failing so fast it alarmed her and she called Craig if he wanted to see me alive again. That hose saved me emotionly if not physically.

I believe in conservative strategies, but there is a time to go for the medical advancements. The people of Newport consist of farmers and loggers. The medical system reflects the community.

Randy. love your reports, both of them! I just shared your "pancake lasagna" with salmon and spinach" with Laura and Larry. they both like the idea and we will try it.

A disappointment about the Hofbrau Haus surprises me. German tavern food is usually out of this galaxy.  "Brotzeit" plate of cold cuts & cheeses," "Potato soup," "Spaetzle noodles with melted cheese," and Sauerbraten". Of course beer, althoughI can't drink alcohol now, there are non-alcoholic beers. I love German beers. Also, freshly made pretzels. 

Your sister sounds like she needs a little growing up, Her pity potty provides her with an opportunity to live happier and healthier. If she does not realize that, she could go to her grave with that dysfunction.
