I hope this link works. It's an article explaining the effects of inflammation on our bodies & how important diet changes are. I get a lot of good articles from My Fitness Pal, & also Prohealth.com.

This is the link:

I find a lot of god info from these websites. We had a busy weekend downsizing my bed to a twin adjustable base, to give me unobstructed floor space to move around. I just hope I don't roll off the bed! Lol It made a huge difference all around by downsizing. I hope you had a good weekend.

I’ve talked to my husband about getting 2 twin beds because of my restlessness and pain. Not want it. How were you able to talk yours into it? Let me know how you like it.🌸

My hubby was totally for it because we've slept in separate beds for several years now, in separate rooms. My pain was keeping us both awake, from my adjusting for comfort, or else his snoring & exhaling cold air from his CPAP mask down my neck was. Either way we were neither one resting. But we have decided to let my sister have the twin adjustable base bed, and I bought a queen mattress for my step mom's adjustable base. She needs knee replacement surgery and plans to have it in April or May. But I've had plenty of room on the twin, more than I thought I would.

Is it a twin long? I’ve made the same suggestion to my hubby recently. I’ve been having a lot of muscle spasms etc and like yours he’s also in a c-pap machine and I hate either his snoring or yes the cold breeze down my neck and I hate to keep him awake with my moaning and restlessness. But he doesn’t like the idea🤷‍♀️

Yes it's the extra long twin. We had planned to put one nightstand between 2 twin beds originally. But the nurse said I will need more floor space for postop home health rehab (if I'm not sent to inhouse rehab). Because our rooms are small (1970 house) we ended up going with a queen. I tried the ones in the store and man does the adjustable bed make getting in & out so much easier with my bad hip & spine! The sales lady's husband has had 2 hip replacement surgeries and she was very familiar with what I needed. She even showed my hubby how to assist me getting in & out of bed.

Just wondered if it was long enough. Haven’t fallen out of it yet have you? Sounds great and adjustable to.only thing you need is massage and heat. 👍

No I've managed to stay on the bed safely. 😂 A massage & heat mechanism would be awesome! Years ago at a fair, they had a water massage tube you laid in on your stomach. And warm water would beat down moving up & down your spine. There was some type of sealed plastic that draped over you to keep you dry. Anyway, it relaxed me so much I could barely walk! I felt like my legs were rubber. If I could find one to buy I would in a heartbeat!!

Wow! Would feel like heaven! Unfortunately, reality sets in and I can’t afford such luxury. Lol oh well...so is life.

Feb 01, 2020 10:06 PM

I couldn't afford it either...but I can dream. Lol😉 I'm heading to bed now. We're going to see my stepmom tomorrow. Noone has been able to visit her since my sister died the 3rd. My nephew was sick and 5 of us caught it, then my oldest sister relapsed and is much worse. I'm praying nothing else hits me because I dont want to delay surgery. My stepmom doesn't even know our sister died yet, because we wanted to go together to tell her. The head doctor said if she will miss our sister not coming we should tell her; she will miss her because that sister could make our stepmom laugh when noone else could. She may ask about her when we go tomorrow, and if she does I guess I'll go ahead and let her know...but I dread it.😢

I understand. Heart wrenching as it will be your gonna both be mourning your loss. I’ll be praying for all of you. Goodnite. Hope you are able to be well rested. 🌸💜🙏🤗
