Hello All. This is Hershe. I have been away from Mylot for a long time. Everything looks different. I suppose it will take me awhile to re-adjusted. In the meantime, I will share with you what I have been up to; at least one of the things I've been up to. It all began when my Father was taken to the hospital with pnemonia. That sorta put my greenhouse job on hold for awhile. A week later he was released from the hospital with a prescription for an antibiotic "just to be sure the pnemonia is gone", they said. Well! If that didn't kill off all the natural good bacteria in his intestines, leaving nothing to keep down the production of the bad bacteria. He developed what they call C.Diff, (colostium difficile), causing sever diarrhea. He has now been on antibiotics to treat this very persistent bacteria for almost nine months. It won't go away. He is now down to one pill twice a day; and we're waiting. So far, so good. Many other things were going on with my Dad such as: Home care, live-in care, and the general hardships of an 89 year old man, who is hard of hearing, with diarrhea..... Want more details, let me know... Later.... Glad to be back. It is a great site for 'venting'. Thanks Mylot.

Hi HerShe, It's so good to see you are back. Sorry to hear about all of the problems you and your dad have had. Things do look a lot different here at myLot. Many original members are gone and many new ones have come to take their place. I hope things start getting better for you, HerShe.

Thanks. Things are getting better. He's settling quite well in his new assisted living arrangement. Although he doesn't need any assistance yet, he wanted to be somewhere where he wouldn't have to move again when he does need assistance. He also now lives in the same city as I and his grandchildren. So far, so good. You take care now. -Hershe-

It must have been a very difficult time for you dear Hershe. Everytime i log on to myLot, my thoughts were with you and was worried thinking something must have gone wrong for you to be this quiet. I am glad that things have started falling into correct places now. Its really really nice to have a good and kind friend back on myLot. You were missed more than you could imagine. Wish you all the luck and my prayers are with your father. Take care.
