    Hi all, Day 6 of the new antibiotics and “blisters” look a bit better. Still yucky though. They think she’ll have to be on them for at least 4 weeks and in the meantime we need to get the plate removed because they think she is rejecting it, hence the infection. So we have that scheduled...

    Tracy, how did Riley get an infection? We are still having issues with Suki. So the one spot healed but then more “blisters” all on the inside of her leg. NOT where the incision was. And really can’t walk, in obvious pain. So we had an appt with our regular vet for annual stuff (and she...

    Hi ladies! Good to hear from you all! Jody, you made me laugh with Ef it. Oura is interesting and trying to learn. I did find that Magnesium Glycinate (instead of the mag I was taking ) and glycine improve my HRV by from 50 to 100. Not sure why that’s good though :) Mary, that is a lot of...

    Jody, I’m still learning about what oura tells you. What is your avg hRV? Mine is around 50, Rhr 56. I joined a oura FB group to read some hints , it got me taking melatonin, seems to help my REM. When I wake up at 2am, I always say to myself, go back to sleep and get ya some good REM ( I’ve...

    Hi all, sorry to be MIA. By the time I think to post here I’m too tired! Yes, Suki broke her leg running scared through the house by fireworks. We are now at 6 weeks post plate surgery. She’s still limping but X-rays a week ago looked like plate was good. We go at 8 weeks for another X-ray...

    HI Tracy, We have been having very pleasant weather, maybe a bit rainy, but 70s and low 80s. I tend to love my peloton over the outdoor rides now but still get in a couple outdoor rides a week, if only for Suki. She loves strutting her stuff through our town. We can only get her to walk...

    Yea for no surgery Mary! How are you doing on the steroids? My friend (she’s 75) just had a knee replacement, it’s been slow going for her. It’s so hard getting older! Once in a while a bear will wander down but not too often. I hate cliques, I feel i’m always on the outside looking in...

    I meant to get here yesterday to wish Tracy a Happy Birthday, whoops! I hope I”m correct that it was yesterday, saw on FB? So yesterday power went out right as I was hopping on peloton with my group, oh well, DH and I decided to take the ride outside even though it was hot already at 7am, I’m...

    Just a quick fly by, good to hear from you Jody! I think I saw some of those pics from your snorkel trip, so cool! Good on you for all you’re committing to! And amazing being a go-go gadget mom! Good luck to DD! I think my hip injury is finally getting better, it took being sensible...

    Not too much going on here. I’ve decided to be sensible with cycling…..back story, since Jan my right hip is hurting…..piriformus? Or maybe hamstring. Hurt only after cycling when stretching, I tried to cut back. I thought my outdoor bike it wasn’t as bad since I don’t push myself as hard...

    HI everyone, I failed to come here because I get tired of trying to type with my thumbs. Enter a new (well new to me IPad) with a keyboard so thought I’d say hi. My reaction to shots were same as what I’ve read, I spent the day on the couch aching down to my toes. I just had my first big get...

    Sorry I'm here, I always forget to come here. I'm always exhausted from all of the Peloton rides(I'm the oldest of the group I ride with, I'm not used to that) and just not overly chatty. Not much going on here either. My future DIL did get a Peloton bike and we rode together this weekend. She...

    Ladies, I'm popping in to say hi! These Peloton people are keeping me so busy! I'm in a challenge now, I'm doing 75 min yoga a couple of times a week for the challenge and I think I'm going to incorporate it regularly now. I even did a 20 min one today after my ride on top of the challenge...

    Hi all! I've been MIA! Just Peloton and quilts, that's my life! That Peloton wears me out! I think I must have been a wimp on the Cathe cardio! Tracy, that zoom road trip sounds cool! Mary, it's been cold here, snow still on the ground from over a week ago, that's not normal here. We...

    Hi ladies! I'm just popping in to say hi. I've read the posts and promptly forgot most of what I read and didn't take notes like Tracy. I'm still Pelotoning, rode outside last week a lot too, now it's cold and I'm taking it easy this week (riding only 30 min a day vs 60). My body just feels...

    Mary, yes they are pretty close. About an hour away but then a new fire started about 30 min away and very close to Boulder. Smoke has been absolutely awful, can't even go outside (thank goodness for Peloton!). The winds have been so bad but today they calmed down and it's a bit cooler, even...

    Hi all, thought I should pop in! Not too much new here. I've see the grand baby 3x in the last week! One of those we were her 1st ever babysitters! She just turned 7 mths, still nursing so her mom can't leave her too long. Her mom can't really work with covid anyway (she used to do makeup at...

    Lol at comment of Tracy's comprehensive posts.... I always wonder how she does it...sounds like I'm almost as disorganized as Jody, lol. Smoke was gone for a bit, got warm, then cool front blew in and so did the smoke, we did get a little outdoor bike ride in this morning (after I did spinning...

    Hi all! Yes, snow here! 101 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mid 90s, then a drop of 60 degrees to mid 30s! I'm cold! Did not have time to acclimate! DS dog, Olive, has finally cleared the pneumonia (that's what dogs of megaesophagus die of normally) so that's good. It's quite a chore feeding...

    This is the position Olive has to be in for eating and drinking. If this works, then maybe we'll make a nicer contraption, they are called Bailey chair for dogs. She has to stay upright afterwards too for a few minutes. Also trying a thickener for her water so she can't aspirate it. It's...
