NOVEMBER

This has been quite a year. I had such plans to get my life under control - church involvement, craft projects, weight, and others. And, they my oldest son was diagnosed with terminal cancer - and everything fell by the way. He is now living with me and another son in a very small 2 bedroom apartment. And, being with him takes most of my time.

This has been quite a year. I had such plans to get my life under control - church involvement, craft projects, weight, and others. And, they my oldest son was diagnosed with terminal cancer - and everything fell by the way. He is now living with me and another son in a very small 2 bedroom apartment. And, being with him takes most of my time.

I am still enjoying my knitting - meet a couple of times a week with fellow knitters - such a fun group. Have knit socks for Christmas for all the girls in my family - and now have a couple other projects i am working on.

Have been meeting with a friend every Tuesday morning for over a year for Bible study. We spent a year in the book of Romans and are now looking at the names of God. Not going very fast, but we are not in a hurry. The study we are using is from Dr. Ralph Wilson at joyfulheartl.com. He is an amazing man - pastor, teacher, and a pioneer in internet marketing. And his Bible studies are so good!!

I live in Pendleton, Oregon - in the NE corner of the state - famous for the Pendleton Roundup in September - when the town double in size. Lots of activities: the rodeo, Happy Canyon (the Indian pageant), 2 big parades, and booths all over town that have goodies to eat, beautiful articles to purchase.

Have been overweight for way too long!! This year had planned to focus on one main goal a month, but somehow life just went sour!! But there is still some year left - not a whole lot - but enough to get my life back on track!!

Good afternoon Barb, hope you're well.
I saw you need your studded tyres, have you got snow again?

Our weather was picking up nicely but seems to have done an about turn at the moment, it's really cold and very windy but thankfully it's not raining!

I'm just back from my physio session, they've left the sling off for now but I can put it back on if I need to. I can begin using my arm, but sparingly, it's so I don't get a frozen shoulder. I've cut back on the medication too and I'm beginning to sleep a bit better.

Hope you have a good day emoticon

(((((((( Barb )))))))))))

I've been away for many months and saw your note on my page about your son doing chemo. OH NO . . . I hope he is doing better.

I would love to know how you are doing too.

Blessings!
Carol

Hi Barb,
Hope you're well.

Just been back to hospital, the burning and redness has disappeared but I'm off my treatment for a week then will be assessed again to see if it can continue. I've stopped being sick and the headache has disappeared, I just feel muscle achey but loads better than I was. They said it was like having sunstroke!
I've finished the painkillers but am still on antihistamine. I slept well last night and feel refreshed this morning.

I've also got a torn deltoid muscle which is pretty painful, go back to the hospital on wednesday morning, my arm's in a sling to stop me moving it!

I'm hoping to go shopping and visit with Jason's family tomorrow morning then out for a look around a big garden centre with my friend Ruth. I'm sure I'll feel up to it but if I aren't she'll understand.

Hope you have a good week-end emoticon
