    She is not suffering a third attack of pancreatitis. She just pulled up her lab reports today, found out the good news and then did a fairly good imitation of a two year old eating her way through the candy. Luckily she retained enough sanity to avoid doing back flips. With two hip replacements and her spine being held together with plates and screws that would have been a disaster. Any ideas on how to keep her from overdoing the celebration the next time? She was frightening me.

    I do keep a bottle of whisky in the refrigerator so it won't evaporate but Gail takes a while to come down.

    Dear william the wie
    I'd do a pre-emptive strike and make plans in advance
    to take her out to a fancy dinner or something fine you both can share to celebrate.
    Pick something that reminds you of the best moments you like to share,
    and set a date to do that. Bring out the best in each other and that supersedes the worst!

    Good idea but one of her buddies just came back from MN today so that was a nonstarter.

    With her history of pancreatitis, I'm sure her doctor has told her to avoid alcohol.

    Prayers up for you and your dear lady, william the wie. I'm glad she's okay, but pancreatitis is a bad thing to feed candy to, and I know you're worried about her tempting fate. I'm guessing she is older or has had a wreck that damaged her hips that needed surgery so bad. Because it sounds like she has autoimmune issues, you might use bing! search engine to look up a natural appetite suppression system for her. One thing that is certain to lower her appetite for bad stuff is a minute for a loving hug 3 or 4 times a day to let her know she's your best girl. Till a woman's dying day, she needs appreciation. It's hard for guys, because when we age we can be regular crabs with pinchers, Kiss the pinchers and hug the shoulders when she's grumpy. The words, "what can I do to help you feel better?" might be music to her ears. She might just need a drink of water. If she doesn't say anything, tell her "I'll get you some water (the way she likes it), and take the steps for her if you are able to get around. Can't remember 4 times a day? Invest in a timer and set it for 3 hours after each hug. See what happens after 2 weeks of that. I bet she won't be running for the candy dish, but you might get some. ;)
