Update on SIL

Monday, July 23, 2012

My SIL had to go in for a shot to help increase her white blood cells, otherwise she can't get her chemo. She's had to go 3 days last week for the shot and today. Today was an extremely bad day, as they had to treat her for dehydration and things just didn't go well. She wanted me back there and asked them to get me, but no one came to the waiting room to let me know.

She is depressed, mad and jsut all over frustrated.

I do appreciate all your thoughts and prayers.

MY TIME WITH BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge)

Friday, July 13, 2012

We are to blog or journal about our time with BLC.

I have enjoyed and learned so much during my time with my BLC teams. I've ben on 3 teams: Lt. Blue Bombshells, Mighty Mocha Hunters (which was called Mocha Maniacs) and the Pink Vikings. I've enjoyed being on all three teams.

I have lost and gained, but now I know how to do it healthily…is that a word??

I have met many new friends and enjoy working with them everyday.

Some of the challenges have been a BIG challenge for me, like drink 8 - 8oz glasses of water a day and get 8 hours of sleep a day. I’ve noticed lately that it has become easier with new challenges of drink my recommended glasses of water and sleep between 7-9 hrs a day…that one is still hard to do, too many nightly talk shows.

Some of the challenges I have learned I’ve incorporated into my everyday routine.

Thank you BLC.

    You know Courti we all learn what we let ourselves learn from the BLC. I think it is a wonderful team and if you put in the hard work you will lose the weight.

I have been with the Wisteria Wolves (3 rounds) and the Courageous Copper Cougars (3 rounds) and I am proud to say I learned something different each round.

Like you I take what I have learned about doing things *healthily* with me whether I stay or go from the BLC after this round.

    Okay, I thought for sure we were on a BLC team together at one point. It wasn't one of the any of the three you mention. it was the Light Blue Bombshells. Did they become butterflies? emoticon

as far as the pain in my shoulder, which i thought was stiff from not using my, turns out after x-rays... a bone spur. he said to do the pullies exercise and hopefuly no surgery later. {{fingers crossed}} i go back in 7 weeks.

    I sure hope there is no surgery in your furture for the shoulder. DH had bone spurs on is back bone. He did have them removed when they did the major surgery. Pink Eye? DO you have pink eye? I suffer from it if I get eye strain. Make sure you follow the directions your DR gave you so as not to spread it to your DH or other eye.

Get better gal.

    Court... What caused the scar tissue? Twelve years ago I had a shoulder injury, and went through months of physical therapy. Finally, after 9 years of pain, I had shoulder surgery... rotator cuff, bone spur and cleaned up some "frayed cartiladge".... Now it's as good as new. No pain whatsoever!

update on sil

Thursday, July 05, 2012

the new cancer treatment isn't working. cancer markers are up above 2000. when we started this journey it was below 100.

update: saw sil today, she's pretty frustrated. i don't know how many types of treatments she's gone through, but you'd think one would work.

thanks for all your prayers and kind thoughts.
