CoHP - Tackling something I fear

Thursday, November 08, 2012

One of the challenges for this week on the Challenge of Harry Potter is to write a blog on something that we fear.

I guess my fear is that I will get into a lazy mood and not keep up my exercises and eating somewhat health. Okay, so I'm not tracking much, but I'm doing better than I was. It doesn't take much for me to fall out of routine.

I'm making progress now and fitting into my jeans that were tight. I just hope I can keep up a daily routine of cardio and ST. To work on abs and hips especially. I let myself go too long and taking the fat off my obliques seems like a challenge in itself. haha

    You got this girl! Just keep at it and it'll happen. The biggest obstacle we face every day is getting off our butt and making the effort to make those healthy decisions. Awareness I think is also part of the battle, and you've defeated that one. Just take it one day at a time!

    Thanks for the information - it's such a devastating time for so many. My daughter-in-law's entire family is there. I heard early in the day things were okay, but nothing since the storm really hit. Her dad lives in Jersey City right on the river, you can see the lower Manhattan skyline from his condo, I hope all is well with them.

Another update on SIL

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

We took my SIL to her doctor's appt to get the results of her scan. They believe some of the swelling is pockets of fluid after all, which is good. We took her to the hospital where they will do what they have to do to see about draining what fluid they find. Her son is staying overnight with her.

We're glad it isn't all tissue, because I don't think they could do anything for her. Please pray that most of it is fluid.

I think she'll only be in the hospital a couple days.

We appreciate all your prayers, that is what has gotten her this far.

    I'm sure every bit of "not-bad" news is viewed as a positive - so here's to good thoughts that there will be more and more of the same as time goes on.

We took her to her scan, but won't get results until Monday. Doc is hoping some of the swelling is fluid and not all tissue.
She has been pretty week and can't stand alone.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

Update on SIL

Thursday, October 25, 2012

We took my SIL to her doctorís appt. She was told what we thought was all water or fluid in her legs and abdomen, was tissue. We have to take her for a scan tomorrow to see where all the tissue is located. From what SIL said it must be through out her body. She said the doctor said she might be a little jaundice.

Hope it isnít raining when we pick her up tomorrow, it takes a while to get the wheelchair with her from the house to the car and that storm is brewing. We were lucky today, after we got her in the car from the doctor, it started to rain. God was looking out for us.

We appreciate all your prayers, please pray for her 20-yr old son, he is her caregiver almost 24/7.

    Her son (your nephew) has got to have some major PLATINUM character for one so young, giving such care to his mother!! I will pray for his strength, Courti. Bless his heart. We've got some GINORMOUS clouds floating on in, Courti. I hope you'll get to the appointment without any bad weather. emoticon
