Good evening Christmas family

Thank you for seeing me through a really rough start to the New Year. When we gave Wish his fluids today I tried a different site - right at about his shoulder blades. It worked very well - no crying on his part which is such a relief. He has been being a finicky eater these past few days though and I have had to give him some of his regular food mixed with a renal diet food and turkey. At least for now he ate everything.

Track - I hope you are feeling better soon !!

Take care Christmas family - I may be back later xoxoxo
We are here for you CM3, keep those Christmas lights shining as long as you need!

I just had my first PCB related meltdown, tucking in my boys for bed, they go back to school, and the love of my life goes back to work. I started crying because I don't want them to go back. I still have 2 more days left of my vacation. First Christmas being over, and now my family heads back to the real world. There is only so much a certified Christmas nut can handle after the holidays.

You are so right...it IS "THIS YEAR" That makes me feel better already!
Me too ... I was just trying to be positive about it, but in reality, I have that "icky feeling" about it awfully strong. Must try to think positive, anyway ...

Yes. Get those cold packs that they sell for headaches. You want to keep it cold, but not ice-cold---you don't want frostbite. Or wrap a bag of frozen peas in a towel and use it as a cold compress,

Hot tea with plenty of honey and lemon juice, several times a day. You can also gargle with a mild solution of salt water. Clear broth can be soothing, too.

In the next few days, it'll be time to take down the trees and pack away the decorations. It'll be too sad to listen to Christmas music while doing that. Any ideas what would be more cheerful listening while doing that chore? There's no music I like as we'll as Christmas music, but I have to put it away until I'm back in non-holidays mode.
