Mellow Monday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  For the last week, I have been struggling with intestinal flu, and I have only one kidney since the age of 4, so I would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers on my behalf.  Because I have only one kidney, dealing with intestinal issues in my case is different from the way people deal with it who have two kidneys.  Basically letting it take its course and doing my best to prevent dehydration, which is what I have been doing, is the best way to go.  Eating very small meals 5 times daily, drinking lots of water and having no sugar or salt, eating very bland. It has been decades since I have had flu of any type!  As soon as I am stable enough, which I pray will be in a couple of days, I will go to my doctor and I will give you all an update in the near future. 

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag
