I am loving the new me ! The stress that continues in my life, keeps making me stronger.... no longer am I allowing stress to rule my life.
My Sparks friends all help keep me grounded, their encouragement and support keeps me wanting to get healthy more than anything in my life.
But now when the messages come through, I read them and tell myself it's just not worth giving in to food to soothe my nerves.
Hopefully I can get away next week and try to deal with these situations that are so troubling and causing me undue stress.

As most of you know my mother's been in the hospital 3 weeks today.
Yest. they transferred her to another hospital to have a procedure done and then she was to bring her back. Last night I heard from my sister that she'd been at the other hospital since 10am waiting to have her angioplasty done, she phoned and left a message on my sister's phone at 4:30, still hadn't gone in but should be going in an hour's time.
My sister phoned the first hospital last night to find out if she had gotten back, they hadn't heard anything so assumed they would be keeping her at the other hospital.
When I got to work this morning and checked my e-mails my sister hadn't heard anything. So I phoned the first hospital and spoke with the head nurse. Apparently she didn't have her procedure but will have it today and she figured they would probably get a phone call tomorrow to prepare her bed for her return.
So to answer everyone's questions for an update on mom..... it's very hard to give anyone answers when I don't know them myself.
The other thing is, this is very stressful and when my weight concillor tells me stress can cause weight gain I really believe it. I've had the same week as far as eating as I always have, except one slip up the other evening..... 4 timbits, and have probably gained about 3 to 4 lbs this week ( now that's my Wii Fit telling me that, I just use it to judge how my week is going) Yes, my Simply For Life scale is the real one I go by, but when things start getting frustrating, it sure can reflect in what is going on with the scale.
many thanks to all for your prayers, thoughts, and concerns and when I find out anything I will pass the info on to all.

There is enough grief on our board today, but just wanted to post my own Blog !
Received word about 3 hours ago about the passing of an older cousin, Robert only 71 yrs young.
Just a year ago he was leaving the hospital, being there on a survey program, and suffered a heart attack in the parking lot.
When he hit the pavement it cause brain damage. He has remained in hospital all this time, in a comma for quite a while, then hooked up to many tubes including a feeding tube. This once vibrant man dwindled away to nothing, at times not even being aware of life around him.
Now he is with our Lord.
He leaves behind a grieving, wife Coral, 2 daughters Cyndi and Angeli, 3 grandsons, a mother Rowena (93 yrs old), a sister Norah, one nephew Andrew, one niece Tammy, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, and numerous friends.
Please remember my family at this sad time, but rejoice in the full life he lead, and has now gone to his reward, he was a faithful servant of God.
