It is just paper. A Camper, now. That is something...

Thanks for the bump.

Things are looking good for her. (finally). She still has some pain we are working to figure out what is going on. We think the catheter is poking her guts during the drain cycle. Sleep is not something we are getting these days. Drain cycle is every 2 hours.

I wound up with a severe allergy to the tree pollen around here. Why? No idea. Maybe lack of sleep. Sleeping on the sofa after setting her up so my coughing won't disturb what little sleep she is getting. Dr. got me a script for a prescription antihistamine. The over the counter stuff is just not working for me.

Still need to work on forcing her to eat protein and potassium. The eggs I cook help but she needs to get protein in larger quantities than she is eating. Tried Whey powder but she hates it. No-Salt solved the potassium issue I think. Everything else is looking better.

My younger is a weight lifter and is going to let her try some of the protein powder he uses. Need to run it by the nurses first though.

Thanks for the prayers.
Lou

We're still keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers. Give Ms. Laura a big hug from the Dunn's.

There are a lot of different protein powders. I mix them into my smoothies - some were good some were AWFUL. If you have a organic foods place near you, it's worth a perusal.

And, like OldCoot said- y'all continue to be in our thoughts and hearts.

Any recommendations to the tasty ones would be appreciated.

Herk, I use Amplify from GNC. They have vanilla and chocolate. I mix them with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and ice and to me it is like having a chocolate shake. Maybe that will work for Ms. Laura? Thoughts and prayers for you both!

OC, thanks for bringing this back up.

Herk,

I was thinking of both of you this weekend, you are both in my daily best wishes and prayers.

I also struggle with getting enough potassium and tire of people saying "eat bananas!"....'nanners just ain't my thang, but 'nanner nut bread is! I've also used frozen bananas dipped in chocolate. Perfect excuse to indulge in something otherwise sweet and sinful. A frozen banana in a smoothie machine is like eating banana ice cream too!

And, I also take potassium supplements.

Yogurt is a good source of protein, as is cheddar and cottage cheese.
