Yesterday was a bit testy. Joyce fell twice; once while sitting on the porta-pot and once while Jill was moving her to the pot. It takes effort to get her from the floor to the bed. After taking Jill to the airport Joyce, asked to go to the pot four times with no results. My back is now hurting. For her safety I ordered a hospital bed arriving at 7:00 PM. After going from one to three days with no bowel movement, she had three from midnight to 7AM. The first one was a six gagger, the second a 0 gagger, and the third I stopped counting at twelve. The only smile I got out of her was when I said I was going to be a nurse in my next life. She is quite passive now and is losing her appetite. Tomorrow Bets is coming, yea. Dale Lange

I need to 'comment' but I don't know what to say except that you are BOTH constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I cannot imagine what you are experiencing, Joyce; and, Dale, you are such a tremendous husband and helpmate for Joyce. I love you guys!
