Gripe, Gripe, Grumble, Grumble!!

Monday, May 02, 2011

We go out to get in the car to go to my mil and can't get the garage door to go up. Ugh!

Had to call my mil to come pick us up.

DH was going to take our car to drop me off at my mil to go with her and my sil for her radiation. DH was going to pick up nephew at school. What do they say about the best laid plans?

MIL picked DH and me up to pick up nephew then the 5 of us go to radiation. Let them out and DH and I come home in MIL car to call for garage door repair.

I need car tomorrow to pick up my cousin to take to her doc appt.

When it rains it pours.

Gripe, Gripe, Grumble, Grumble. Thbbbsssth (raspberries)

Re-reading this I want you to know I do appreciate the time I have to help my sil, mil and nephew. I'm gripping and grumbling about the obsticals that come in to play, like the garage door.

    The garage door repair guy is here now. I think he'll be able to repair door enough to work, but suggested a new hurricane door. This door was here when we moved here about 6 years ago and who knows how long it was here before that.

BLC-16 GYM 24/7 - 4/20 --4/26

Friday, April 29, 2011

I'm afraid that I didn't do very well last week.

4/20 - Option: 1,2,3......4/27 - none
4/21 - none....................4/28 - none
4/22 - none....................4/29 - none
4/23 - Option: 1,2,3
4/24 - none
4/25 - Option: 1,2,3
4/26 - Option: 1

Plus, this week so far - 4/27 - 4/29 I haven't done any. I do need some ink in my printer to copy off the exercises so I have them for the week. I don't usually call it up each day. It's been a busy time for us so I've slipped up doing the GYM work.

The Big C sucks

Friday, April 29, 2011

So many people lately diagnosed with cancer. I don't know how many I have on my prayer list: some from SP and some from my life. I just read a blog from an SP friend who lost her dil. My heart goes out to her and family.

I'm still going with my sil, Jill, and her mom to radiation. Jill will soon start chemo. With treatment she will have a longer time, God only knows how long.
She has to worry about her pain pills, insulin, etc etc. I don't know how she does it. Not bad enough to have the cancer, but diabetes too!

Yesterday was a busy day: pick her up, to he mom's, then a doctor's visit, then radiation, later meet with my dh and her son (from school) take home. She must be tired. She is taking strong pain pills.
We still have radiation today and dh will pick up her son so we can take both home. I think dh and her son are grocery shopping while we go to her treatment.
With the new pills, she seems in better spirits and getting around better.

    Ack! I hear ya! I found out a very good friend of mine has prostate cancer. Luckily they caught it early, so we're hoping for a good prognosis.

Stay strong for your friends Courti. We'll be here to give you wings.

    Pain alone can take such a toil on you Courti so I am sure if the new pills take away some of the pain it puts her in better spirits because she feels like she can function.

I know that is how it is for my DH and now for me. But yep fighting the pain and diabetes (I am on insulin) can sure take it out of you.

But it seems she is a fighter and that is what will get her through and wonderful people in her life like YOU.

I am praying for strength for all of you.

    It does suck big time. My Mom-in-law is doing treatment for stage 4 lung cancer, dad my died from a brain tumor, my mom lost her voice box to cancer. When I was a kid we hardly ever heard the word, if we did it was always bad news. At least now people have a chance of surviving it used to be a death sentence. It's the friends and family members who step in to help during these bad times that make it possible for people to continue on during these tomes.

    I am so sorry. Cancer is a horrible disease. It took my BIL, it took my aunt, my uncle, my best friends mom. It takes away too many of those we love. Just know there are many of us who know and understand your pain and frustration. Take care.

Jill Update

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

My SIL went to the Tampa Cancer Center (I may have said it was in Orlando before, but it is in Tampa, Fl). They said they didn't have anything different to do for her. They suggested she keep taking her radiation and then chemo.

Thank you for all your caring prayers. You are a great bunch of friends.

    Well, my gentle sweet friend, it doesn't matter what they said.

What they said, is what everyone who doesn't believe miracles says.

Miracles can't happen___________ until it happens!

If we're gonna' pray for rain_______ bring an umbrella!!

No matter what we *see* with these eyes or *hear* with these ears, we must not 'faint' or give up or give in.

There is nobody, that can take Jill out- nothing... till it's her time to go.

Everybody may 'accept' that it is her time to say farewell, but...

there's only ONE author & finisher of her life here. I'm going to hang on believing that.


I'm *here* for you, my sweet & I will continue to care & pray.
Love, yer'

Jill's treatment

Friday, April 22, 2011

They didn't do radiation yesterday as we thought. The doctor spoke with us and checked Jill over for her pain. She had to get the tattoos then for the radiation, which she had today. She'll go again next week.

I read a blog by Lakotalady. My heart goes out to her family.
