Again, Lily thanks for the reminder to open a new thread. Here is the link to the old one:
Hi Lily and Jill. Well we've had some rain on and off today....I love the rain.
Lily, how long has your brother stopped eating and drinking? Around the time he was put on antidepressants? Or are they new antidepressants? If so maybe they need to change them. I hope he starts to improve and I'm glad you were able to visit and get some juice/drink down him. Keep us updated on his condition. I said a prayer for him.
What is wrong with him is not the eating and drinking, he has had some .
But something else is making him like he is and they have yet to find the answer.
A lot of it may be age but there must be something else,he has had a lot of tests but still problem not solved.
he did look very poorly.
Vicky that link does not take me to the old thread but to care2 main page!
Allo~Lily, Vicky & Friends
Wednesday Blessings to all
Hi Jill, Nance, Lily, and Vicky,
Beautiful dove (on old thread), Jill.
Jill that one is 622x800 going to start stretching page again.
When you put one in these boxes if you click in the bottom right hand corner you get arrow which you then slide inwards with your cursor to make them smaller
It is quite easy to do.
Phoned hospital tonight my brother is stable they said and the doctors are around tomorrow so I might get more information then.
I dont know what other tests they can do on him.

Lily my aunt has gone to doctors over and over and whatever is bothering her is not getting fixed. I don't think they make doctor's like they used to. Nowadays all they want to do is write prescriptions. I hope they find out what is wrong with your brother. Sorry the link didn't work Lily....who knows why. When I do the corner resizing technique, it makes it smaller but then when I leave and come back it's large again. Is it only supposed to stay small while you look at it or permanently? We are able to change anyone's sizes so I assume that they resort back to their original size after viewing them.
Nance, I love your little cat playing the piano with the mice watching. lol
Jill, your image is pretty and thank goodness it's not stretching the page.
Allo~ Lee, Jill, Vicky, Lily and friends
Looking forward for a great day...enjoy yours~

Good Morning dear sisters. I apologize for my abscence here. I have had so many wonderful things happening around here. This very weekend, hubby & I will be moving into a one bedroom apartment from a 2 bedroom. Luckily, it's just right downstairs from where we presently live. So, we won't have far to lug all of our belongings. My husband started a new job 3 weeks ago at a plumbing company in Houston. He has to drive over an hour each way to get to work. He leaves at 4 in the morning to get there on time. I'm still working myself and doing well. Our daughters are well. My youngest one will be having her baby in November. So, like I said, a lot is going on here. I just wanted to stop in and say Howdy. Have a wonderful Thursday everyone.
Hi Lily, Jill, Nance, Vicky, and Kathryn,
Wonderful graphics, my friends.
Have a lovely Thursday.
hi Kathryn glad to see you back and that you are having some good news
Vicky i phoned hospital today and they seem to think he is a bit better,I hope so.
I haven't had that problem with reducing the pic like you say,do you click outside photo AFTER you have reduced it?.
I make them any size
Such a lot got thrown out though,maybe better next year.
Hi Jill, Nance, and Lily,
Hands not working today.
Thought you might like to see this photo of my brother and I when we were very young.
you can tell how old it is as he is now 85!
Hi ladies.....such beautiful and cute graphics tonight.
Lily, I love the photo of you and your brother; he sure was handsome but a LOT older than you. You look adorable. I'm glad you got enough apples to make a crumble. Sounds delicious....do you use cinnamon? I LOVE cinnamon. Did you make the kitty tag with the leaves falling? Very pretty. And the panda is sweet. Okay, when I resize a photo I drag it out or in depending if I want it larger or smaller. I see a dotted line around it but before I click on the outside I have to release the mouse and so when I click on the outside of the picture the dotted lines are gone. I was clicking on the inside of the picture before.
Kathryn! Good to see you. So you're gonna be a granny in November? I bet you are so! excited! When is the other grandbaby due? How awesome that your hubby got a new job. Things are really looking up for you. Moving? Yuck....thank goodness you don' have far to go but you still have to pack and move eveything. I'm glad you're still working; same job? Come back when you can.
Lee, I'm sorry your hands are bothering you. It seems like that were doing okay for quite a while. Hopefully they'll feel better soon.
Nance, I love your little penguin and the kitty that looks like he's got his paws on the window. Do you have to work this weekend?
Jill, you posted so many beautiful pictures. All the flowers are so lovely. You always cheer me up when I see what you post.
Well it's late so I will bid you goodnight.
Hi Lily, Vicky, and Jill,
Have a great weekend, friends!
Yes Vicky my brother is 12 years older than I am.
My eldest brother was 15 years older!
and my youngest was 4 years older.
Here is one of me with the eldest
Allo~Vicky & Friends
I just returned from visiting my mom, as this was my weekend off~
Hi Lily, Lee, Jill and Nance. Today was absolutely gorgeous! I just love days like this!
Lily that is another cute pic of you. You look adorable and your brother is handsome.
Lee, how are you doing? I'm guessing your hands may be hurting you.
Nance, what a cute little mouse graphic with the sweet little lady bugs. I'm glad you got to go see your mom, I'm sure she was happy.
Jill, I'm going to snag your Saturday tag....it is precious!
Well ladies I will be signing off for now. I hope the rest of your weekend is peaceful.
WHY DOES EACH BROWSER HAVE THEIR OWN STUPID TECHNIQUES???? I have tried to post a graphic in Google Chrome, I.E. and Firefox and it won't with the message I type. The message I typed in Google Chrome will not copy and paste properly in I.E. or Firefox. I give up with this new and improved technology! It sucks!!!
Allo~Vicky & Friends
I use 'chrome' right now...I hope your copy & paste works soon
Another old pic of me with the two eldest brothers
Hi Nance, Jill and Lily. Today was pretty (a little rain) but not as pretty as yesterday. I took my mom out for lunch....we had chinese food.
Nance, I like Chrome but I found out that I cannot post graphics in it nor can I copy my post from there and repost in Firefox. All the different browsers give me the blues! I love your little Snoopy!
Lily, I can see that it is you....by your mouth. I like the cute smile you have.
Jill, what a beautiful color (purple) and an awesome quote.
Well it's getting late. Here is a tag I made.
Hi Vicky, Lily, Nance, and Jill,
I got a flu jab yesterday. It took forever!
Wonderful tags, pics and graphics, ladies. Making me smile!
Allo~Lily, Vicky, Lee & Friends
Lovely photo, Lily...
Enjoy a first October day...and blessings throughout
This is a photo of my sisters and my mom along with me.
One sister missing~
Which one is you Nance?
Lovley Wednesday Greetings to all~
Awww, Nance that sleepy baby fox (?) is adorable! Are the sister in the glasses? Nice family picture.
Jill, my graphic tonight has pretty yellow roses in it, too.
Lee, I saw in the other thread where the flu shot has made you ill. I hope you feel better soon.
Lily, pretty white tiger cub. Did I read somewhere (maybe the other group) that your fox is coming around again? I guess you are still feeding him then.
Well no news or excitement going on here so I will bid you goodnight.
Allo~Vicky & Friends
Don't know exactly which species of the fox family, could be a cross fox?
Thursday Blessings to all~
The cross fox is a partially melanistic colour variant of the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) which has a long dark stripe running down its back, intersecting another stripe ...
Yes Vicky a fox is coming round again,probably a different one.
I nade a video last night as I sat with the kitchen door open when it came to feed.
it is a bit dark as only had light coming from kitchen but you can see him,also hedgehog showed up on the end of that one.
Uploading to YouTube right now so will put it on later.
I also took 5 photos which I will put in that pic thread.
The fox was watching me most of time but I kept very still so as not to frighten it off and it didn't seem to mind the flash for photos.
guess it is all new to him,must be one of this years cubs.
Hi Jill, Lily, Vicky, and Nance,
Nance, which one in your family pic are you???
Jill, lovely sparkly yellow rose and beautiful swan scene.
Vicky, I feel a little better today.
Have you heard any more about your brother, Lily?
Allo~Jill & Friends
Jill I am the one with the lighter green shirt
Lee I am going with my sister in law to see my brother again next week to see what we can find out.
I think they are trying to find a place for him in a nursing home or something but I can't see him agreeing to that.
But if he needs feeding etc he wont be able to go back to his own home as the carers there do not do that.
Allo~Lily, Lee, Jill & friends
Prayerfully, everything will go alright, Lily
Hi Lily, Nance, and Jill,
I lost it before when it was more than half way through,it just said upload failed.
I was so annoyed after it going on so long,might happen again tonight but I shant do it any more if it does not after getting a good one tonight.
Allo~Jill, Lily & Friends
Haven't seen Vicky either, Lily~
Hi Jill, Nance, and Lily,
Jill and Nance, beautiful, peaceful pics today. They made me smile.
Lily, tell Les his friend across the pond is thinking of him and wishing him well.
Oh my goodness....I've posted in the Squirrel group a couple of times and I thought in here but I see I haven't in a week. I see so many lovely and cute graphics and I even 'snagged' a few. The last 2 days has been gorgeous!
Nance, I love your Jiminy Cricket tag....I snagged it and also your lovely and colorful bracelet tag.
Jill, as usual you have some really nice ones. Let's see which ones I like the best....the girl on the beach, the sweet baby seeing its reflection in the mirror and the big doll face!
Lily, I'm glad your brother is doing better. Is he able to feed himself and go home? You have so many adorable animal tags...I love them all! I saw your sweet fox video in the other group. He is so cute.
Lee, is your hands still doing okay? I hope so. How cool did it get where you live? It got in the 50's here for a couple of nights but will warm up again in the next day or 2.
Well, I will bid everyone a good night.
Great to see y'all...enjoy your day~
my brother was quite well yesterday,I was surprised as so different to when I last saw him.
he was feeding himself and drinking and quite chatty and cheeky.
so don't know what will happen really he can't stay there forever.It isn't just the feeding and drinking Vicky,when he was at home he was unresponsive each time .
Lee too late to pass that message ,only just seen it.
Hi Vicky, Nance, Jill, and Lily,
Lily, he looks quite well. I'm glad.
That's a lovely, peaceful graphic. So pretty.
Have a great weekend. I'm going to Bark in the Park!
Well don't make yourself hoarse LOL
I delegated the barking to the pups. They are much better at it than I am!
Wish I was this energetic lol
Hi everybody....well for now our cool weather has disappeared. Maybe soon it will come back. If you don't see me in the other group tonight at least you know I was here.
Lily, your brother looks like he's in good health....smiling and his color looks good. I would think he'd want to live somewhere with round the clock care. He can move his personal belongings there to make it feel more like home. What's his name? I will see which one he is in the pics you posted. Did you make the pretty kitty tag? I love the monkey and the joke about Lee not getting hoarse. lol
Lee, how was 'Bark in the Park'? I'm glad you delegated the barking to them. hahaha! That was funny.
Nance, pretty kitties and Jill your tag looks so peaceful.
Have a great evening everyone.
Vicky his name is Les,he wants to go back to his flat,he doesn't want to go into a nursing home or anything.
I don't blame him he has been there a long while now and got used to it.
He has carers in about 4 times a day to see to him and get meals.
M y sister in law is going there on Tuesday and to tell him not to sign anything!!! because they may try that to get him to go somewhere.
I am his only kin and I need to go soon again we are going to make sure he gets what he wants.
It is his life and should be able to end his days how he wants.
Yes I made that tag of the kitten.
nothing doing in my groups tonight it seems only your post here.
Still it is late so I shan't be hanging around long.
Fox has been fed.
My mouse has shown up again,pest.
been nibbling the peanut sack,I have had to put it up on a chair but I suppose he could still get up there.
He hasn't been in the trap I bought which catches them alive so you can put them out unarmed.but if he doesn't soon I will have to get an ordinary one .
Don't want to kill it but I cant have it running around my home.
This post was modified from its original form on 13 Oct, 18:20
Hi Jill, Vicky, and Lily,
Oooooh, it hurts!
Yes Lee you are paying for it now!!!
I know you enjoy yourself but you always have to suffer after don't you?
Off to the hospital tomorrow to see what they are trying to do,I am not signing anything that will lead to him going to a nursing home as he wants to go back to his flat.
Well, Lily, it would be too easy for me to become a hermit, to stop living. I have enough sense not to do that. That's what my brother has done even though he's cancer free now and there's no reason for it. So though it's not easy, it's worth the price I guess.
Be sure and tell Les that his friend across the pond is thinking of him and wishing him well. I hope you see this before you go.
It has been couple days, couldn't post on Care2~ images, fonts, etc,... were missing~
Lookie....we got it~
Hi Lee didn't get a chance to say a lot to Les as we went to chat with doctor and got kept there a long time .
He was fine when we got there and ate a jelly Doreen took him in.
When we got back to him though he was dozing probably thought we had gone home .
but arousing him he had gone into that state again and was
although he did mange to say before he did NOT want to go into a nursing home.
The doctor said they are concerned if they send him home he will be back the next day again.
She thinks he may have slight dementia too,they asked him his addresss and he said he didn't know.
I told her he should be able to spend the last days of his life where he wants to.
And I didn't agree with sending him to a nursing home as that is not what he wants.
But they may get independent assessment on his mental state and I would have no say in the matter if they then decide he has to go in one.
They said his carers can't cope with him at home when he goes into that so called fit or whatever it is.
because he just get unresponsive .
I really hoped he wouldn't be like that again,I think maybe if we hadn't been gone so long probably wouldn't have just then.
he was talking ok and eating that jelly.
Don't really know what the outcome is going to be ,they say they can find nothing wrong in all his tests.
They think it is a combination of depression and slight dementia
I do wonder though if while we were away so long whether they gave him any medication or anything that made him sleepy.
I don't have a lot of trust with it..
Hi Lily, Nance and Jill,
Nance, hooray for Friday!
Jill, I love the sparkly roses the color of orange sherbet.
Lily, I don't blame you for not trusting. Every time I've been in hospital, they were always handing me pills even if I was only there for tests. They even insisted I take sleeping pills when I didn't need them.
It's really good to see you too!
Both of your graphics are so pretty, but I especially love the lovely lady with the doves and bunnies on a snowy night. So pretty.
Well doggone! WHERE does the time go? I thought I was in here a couple of days ago. Maybe it was Squirrel Lovers. We had rain on and off today and next week it will be in the 40's at night. Brrrrr!
Jill, I love all your graphics....so many and so cute and some so pretty!
Nance, your Friday kitty is so cute, too. What were your plans for this weekend? Is it time to visit your mom again?
Lee, I hope your hands/wrists are getting better from your trip. I know they always hurt but when you go to fairs, etc. it seems they hurt you more when you come home.
Lily, I'm sorry Les, is depressed and may be showing slight signs of dementia. I hope he doesn't have to go to a nursing home either if he wants to stay at home. Hopefully, he won't give his home care workers any trouble. What is a 'jelly'? A doughnut or cookie? I hope you can get rid of the mouse/rat without having to use a mouse trap that will snap him. I hate and won't use glue traps either. That is so cruel.
Well time to visit my other groups. Have a great evening or morning.
We buy them in blocks here,different flavours and just pour boiling water over it and leave to set.

Vicky I did not say Les WAS depressed,it is only what they think.
I don't think he is myself.
The problem is these kind of moments he gets when he is unresponsive,they think that is a sign of slight dementia.
They asked him his address and he said he didn't know,but at his age can get confused especially with all this to and froing to hospital.
But if he keeps getting those moments that is what is going to stop him going home.
The carers cant cope with it when he just cant speak to them and just remains in a sort of trance.
Haven't seen the mouse but could be hiding still.
Whether Les is depressed or not Lily, all I said was I hope they don't put him in a home because of whatever they think he has. Your 'jelly' sounds like our jiggly jello.
I just learned something about it I don't like but I will continue to eat it anyway. It is a gelatin that is made from animal bones and hides of cows and pigs. It is boiled, filtered and ground into powder.
Hi Jill, Lily, and Vicky,
Vicky, exertion and overuse of my hands and feet greatly aggravate my condition. The effect lasts for several days afterward.
I hope I have something tasty this Tuesday. Cute bunny.
Great pictures Jill and Lily yours are cute. Hi Lee! I am tired (again) tonight but I just wanted to stop in and say 'hi'. I'll try to stay longer tomorrow. I hope everyone has a blessed evening or morning.
Isn't he cute? I might make a tag out of him. He's a Roborovski hamster.
Allo Vicky & Friends
Hi Vicky, Jill, Nance, and Lily,
Wonderful pics and graphics, friends. They all made me smile on a day when I really needed it.
Happy humpday, everyone!
Hi Nance, Lee, Lily and Jill! Lovely day today. I love your camels, Lee and Lily thank you for making me so sexy for Halloween. lol Sweet graphic, Nance and have a Happy Wednesday (probably Thursday by now). Time for beddy bye....well beddy t.v.
Allo~Vicky & Friends
Cold yet again today, not starting off too warm as it is 32 F, and falling.
Time change in a couple weeks, and signs that cooling off to freezing is soon.
Hi Lily, Vicky, Nance, and Jill,
Good evening Nance, Jill and Lee. Where's Lily at? Must be hiding on us. lol Nance, our nights have been cool....in the 50's and high 40's. It's getting ready to warm uup again, though. Are you visiting your mom this weekend? Lee, how are you doing? Are you taking it easy this weekend. How cold has the temps been there? Jill, what a lovely graphic you posted. You find the neatest pictures.
Well time for bed....good night friends.
Hi Vicky and Jill,
Beautiful bouquet, Jill. The other pic is red xed.
Vicky, I'm doing okay. Trying to take it easy because next weekend is my retreat. It will be fun but hard on me.
I was away riding my broomstick Vicky lol
I have just been going round putting all the clocks back one hour,have a lot of clocks here and I usually miss one.
I don't think I have this time but you never know !!
It will be dark so early now.
We have been forcast high winds so not going out!!!
would be blown away lol
I hate wind though so hope it misses this area in case it takes trees down,think of the poor squirrels and birds up there.
Your retreat comes round quick Lee,yes you had better take it easy now so you are fresh then.
2 more e-cards awaiting you from Jaquie Lawson place.
Also you Vicky not sure which e-mail that has gone to!!
This one should interest you Lee
Hi Lily and Jill,
I love it, Lily. I wonder how the ducks got in. I'll bet it was someone playing a prank. It's just not something ducks would do.
Beautiful red and white tulip, Jill. I don't blame her. I'm crying too.
I am up too late again ,will write more tomorrow
Been up for a visit to my mom for her 75th Birthday...
Snowed up there, but, not where I live.
My gosh where does the time go???? I haven't been here for 4 days!!!
Lee, it's time for the retreat again??? A whole year has gone by??? Darn, that's scary the time flies. Have a great time but relax and take it as easy as you can.
Jill, very pretty graphics....the little girl is adorable.
Nance I'm glad you were able to visit your mom on her birthday. Did you all do anything special? That's a pretty orange, glittery tag.
Lily, that video with the ducks made me smile. Smart little things to be able to get through 2 sets of doors. You look very cute as a witch. lol Sweet little kitty with the blinking eyes. We'll be turning our clocks back soon, too. I hope the wind doesn't blow any trees down near you. Poor little squirrels will be so scared.
I'm tired so good night.
It's only been 6 months. We have a retreat in the spring and one in the fall too. So it hasn't been a year. That would be scary!
There aren't any smilies! The box is blank. That's very odd.
Whew! I'm glad to know that time is not flying that fast, Lee. lol Hmmmm....I have my smilies. I wonder why you don't? Try restarting your computer. I had to a few minutes ago because when I tried to open Care2 it said something like 'unable to open' or some such hogwash. So I restarted my computer and it opened up just fine. Who knows with Care2, so many things seem to be continually messed up; I hope you get your smilies back soon.
Yes mine are working too.
They say we are going to have more wind storms the weekend but not as bad as before.
hope not,that was bad it killed 5 people over here.
2 of them lived near my area but not where it happened.
Oh my goodness, Lily that dog is soooo funny looking. lol I just saw where it says that there is already 130+ or 150+ posts in this thread already. Can this be true? I guess I'll start another thread. I hope the winds won't harm you or your property and I pray that no one else will get hurt or killed. That's awful. I'm glad your emoticons are working. Maybe Lee's will too once she restarts her computer. Well let me go start a new Chit Chat thread.
