Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister V�ronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems.

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem.

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 89,443

Fitness Minutes: 90,204

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

Good Morning!
I know, I miss you too! Life is just busy. Working about 50 hrs a week since they are allowing OT right now. The extra money is helping for the grad party and other misc items. We'll see about a new FitBit...I sure do miss the thing.

I hope you and Erik have been doing well!
Hugs,
Beth

Thanks for the hug!! MIL is doing well. She is getting around but uses the walker more which is just fine with us. She's getting her own breakfast and has been outside a few times. John continues to have pain but he does what he can. My sister is coming next week. She lives in California and usually just comes once a year to give my stepsister and I a break from helping out the folks. She'll stay a couple of overnights with me but most of her time will be with them.

I hope all is going well with you!

Dear friend, Thank you for remembering us even when I have been somewhat silent round here.

Raiden is now getting his radiation treatments, 4 of 12 are done and while he gets those, he and mom are able to stay at RMcD house which is at least a bit less hospital like. When they did the big surgery there was one spot behind the heart that they couldn't cut out so the plan was to do more chemo...done...stem cells...done and now the radiation. Then, hopefully, he will be ok to go home. Lot's of complications of course but he's fairly stable at the moment.

Paul is getting his kill it all chemo before his bone marrow transplant which his son, Raiden's daddy is giving. Not a perfect match but the Drs. feel a child is the best option when a perfect match unavailable. He's of course not feeling the greatest and starting yesterday, they anticipate his blood counts and immunity are plummeting so the next couple of days very potentially risky too. The 6th is the transplant date then a month in the unit for sure with hopes that it takes and he doesn't develop donor host issues.

Personally, I have had a busy business time with my lake association presidency which will gratefully be done the end of this month and also trying to spend as much time with outdoor activity stress reduction. LOL

I am hoping come June, I'll be able to be a better Sparkfriend.
