This is a tough round. The gut-wrenching nausea started 24 hours earlier than usual. I fear I won’t be able to muster much communication, but your notes keep me going. Living on zofran and Fever Tree ginger ale, breathing deeply, trying not to lose it. This really sucks. But it’s working, right?!

Not feeling very well...

    Tracie, it feels awful but it’s working… It breaks my heart to know you’re feeling bad. You can rest assured, though, on the farm features front. I’m been grinding them out like crazy!

  • Abi's BF:

    HI T-Bag,
    Just hang in there and think good thoughts…… skinny dipping this August and watching the stars. We are also a stonesthrow away if you need anything. Can’t wait till next Wednesday’s taco dinner !!!
    Love you,

    Tracie Sweetie:You now look like the lama over at the Tibetan temple in Westminster where I “took refuge” as a Buddhist a few years ago. In fact, you could pass for the Dolly Lama! We make humming noises and thing good thoughts about you. Hmmmmmmmmm! We love you.
    Lee and Chris

    Hang in there girl! I know you can do it! Breathing deeply is the right thing to do. I know it my sound crazy but whenever I had surgery and was in pain, I would concentrate on the pain and then it would go away! As for the naseau, I can only hope that the ginger ale and the positive thoughts distract it and soothes it away.
    You are strong and I know you’ll come out of it a sronger person :)

    take care
