Tough Day, & Followers??? The changes?

A tough day at the hospital. Mom is not feeling better; in fact she feels worse. She had less activity today; but had more pain and needed more medication. She's very frustrated and isn't shy about letting her frustrations out...on whomever is around be they family or hospital staff. Her breathing continues to be very labored. She is still in ICU, she is still holding too much fluid in lungs and elsewhere. Vitals are not what we'd like them to be. In a handfull of hours, she'll hit the 1 full week in ICU. I don't know what to expect of tomorrow, but am hopeful she'll be rested and doing better tomorrow.

I'm lost here on blogger...what happened to our followers section? Why did they change it? Do we have an option to change it back to the way it was? I see no reason to go through the motions of inviting everyone as a friend when we're already connected? It's time consuming for one and then I assume we'll have yet another list on our blogs? I already have my list of links that I visit, as do most of you. The other time consuming thing is when you click on the head/avatar you used to go to the person page which was great...now you don't. Now you have to sign in a 2nd time? What a pain, and then if you scroll down without signing in you get this whole long paragraph about the person, part of their bio which takes up space...all the stuff one would see if you went to their profile page. Then you have to pick a link before you finally go to their page. All of these steps slow down the works, plus it would seem use up bandwith? Doesn't that slow the whole net down? Then once you do that, you can't see anyone else on your followers list without yet another step...refreshing. I really dislike this, can someone tell me what I'm missing here? Why, when it began, and can we get rid of it?


Another cold day here in Central Ohio, I've updated my travel blog to help us all get through the winter...pop over no packing necessary.


  1. My followers left last week too. So did my posts (panic). This is probably just your day...they'll be back later.

  2. I still have mine...??? Not sure what is going on. I lost my Weather weeks ago and had to get a new one. Keeping you and your Mom in my thoughts and prayers. Here's a log distance hug {{{{hugs}}}} Beth

  3. I'm sorry to hear that your mom isn't doing better yet. It can take a long time after major surgery, though. Hopefully things will go better today.

    I don't know what's going with Blogger, either. I haven't noticed anything different with mine. Sorry!

  4. I wish they would leave "well enough alone" regarding the followers. I don't like this new look either.

    Sorry your mom is so ill. It's tough on the family so take good care of yourself.

  5. I removed my followers list after they changed it. It was awful and really once you have your visit list do you really need it anyway. Prayers for you and mom

  6. Thinking of you and keeping you and your mom in my prayers.
