Thanks to all of you

I just want to say thank you to everyone for your beautiful posts and prayers. I think catching up and reading will do me a world of good----any home remedies for swollen eye lids---you can hardly see my peepers.

Good news----Brenda's cysts were benign, but she has some ugly scars---I didn't think they would be that large for removal of such tiny cysts.

Well, I have loads of thank you cards that need to be done, so I am off to get started. Be back later---I need addresses for the squash book winners, so please e-mail them to me---not you Jackie--I have yours . Love and Hugs, Pat

What a sweet photo of yoru parents. Time will ease the pain a bit. I can now laugh when I tell good stories about my Mom, but you will always miss your loved ones deeply.

Julie, thanks so much. Although I had a rough childhood, mom was just becoming the mother I needed and it was too short a period, but for the first time in my life, she had hugged me like a mother should hug a child and it gives me great comfort. Hugs, Pat

Hi Pat,
I looked up on google & found a site about "Reducing eye puffiness"...they say -
1. Gently tap the swollen area to encourage fluids to go elsewhere
2. Apply a cool, soothing substance to your eyes for 5 minutes to reduce fluid retention. Try cucumber slices; a refrigerated gel mask; damp, chilled tea bags; or a damp, cold cloth.
3. Drink plenty of water. Water retention, which causes bloating, occurs when the body has too much salt and not enough fluids to flush it out.

Hope this helps...take care of yourself...the picture of your parents is beautiful & so is the ring.

Thanks Nettie, I am going to Bath and Body to get the eye gel mask.

Pat, What WONDERFUL News about your sister Brenda! Yeah!!
I too had a small cyst/lump removed and I too have a big ugly scar.
Hope you are doing OK. Please take care of yourself! Here are some hugs to you too. {{{{{Pat}}}}}
