BEING POSITIVE W/ SETBACKS

Friday, April 23, 2010

I HAD SURGERY DEC. 9-09. I HAD A SMASHED SPINAL CORD & THEY FUSED 4 OR 5 OF MY VERTEBRA. I'M RIGHT HANDED. BEFORE SURGERY I HAD FULL USE OF MY RIGHT ARM & WHEN I WOKE UP I HAD LOSE USE OF IT. I STILL HAVE USE OF MY RIGHT HAND. A THERAPIST COMES INTO MY HOME 3 TIMES A WEEK. I'VE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS IN 4 MONTHS. SHE THINKS I HAVE GOTTEN MY TRICEPS & PARTIALLY MY BICEPS BACK. I'M NOT REALLY GETTING MY DELTOIDS. HER BOSS HAS OKED FOR OSF CHARITY TO PAY FOR ME TO GET A NERVE CONDUCTION TEST & THEN A SECOND ONION FROM ANOTHER NEUROLOGIST. THE TEST WILL EVALUATE WHAT OF MY THREE MUSCLES ARE WORKING & WHAT PERCENTAGE. I MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO RAISE & BEND MY ARM. ANY COMMENTS ABOUT THE TEST WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I AM VERY LOVED & BLESSED! GOD BLESS ALL & emoticon emoticon emoticon

  Thank you so much for sharing and I believe in being positive also. You are doing a great job and looking at the glass as half full instead of half empty. Wish you the best and pray you will always feel the presence of the Lord.

I did it!

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed w/ COPD. I went for a month gasping for every breath. I sat up all night every night just gasping. I did'nt go to the emergency room because I couldn't afford the bill. It was a Sun. & my family dressed me & rushed me to the emergency room. It was the fastest I had ever been taken care of. I had quit breathing & my guys thought they had lost me. I was in for 5 days. I had seen my doctor & he should have done more & I might not have had to go to the hospital. But I was given a lung specialist thank the lord. I also didn't have to pay the bill because St. Marys helped me w/ their charity fund. I renew every year & they pay for my new doctor. She's great. Also X-rays, labs & emergency room. I pay my lung specialist $20.00 a month & I'm very blessed. My old doctor put me on Predizone & I shot up from 130-135 lbs. to 171 lbs. I never thought I'd get to 140's ,but this morning I was 149. lbs. even. WOW! GOD bless my friends & family. And GOD bless my Spark family. I couldn't have done it w/ out you. I have a ways to go, but I'll get there. Hugs Sparkfriends Love Connie! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My man loves my cooking & does'nt want me to cook anything with the word healthy. He loves all my big meals I've cooked for years. I have COPD & It's hard to exercise. Wish me luck. emoticon

    I am in the same boat you are my friend but I never mention healthy when I cook a meal and my husband can not taste the difference. Best of luck to you my friend. emoticon
