    I am SO glad everything went well! Of course you were stressed out -- surgery is always a jittery experience, even when it's not major or life threatening.

Have you ever tried Tai Chi, or Qi Gong, or meditation? I find that those things help me immensely when I'm nervous, or spinning, or anything but centered.

Tomorrow will be a Better Day

Monday, March 01, 2010

Today has been stressful and I haven't handled it well. We met with the orthopedic surgeon today and DH will have his surgery tomorrow. I know everything will be ok but i have just felt stressed all day. I have been burping...yes, burping. I know I am swallowing air out of tension. My fibromyalgia is acting up for the first time in ages. I am hungry, hungry, hungry and very, very sleepy. These are all signs of stress for me. I am 200 calories over, which isn't terrible but isn't ideal. I feel badly that I am handling the stress poorly, but this is where I am tonight. I will definitely go to bed early tonight so I don't eat any more and will handle tomorrow better.

    Nancy, try to settle down. I react the same way (except the burping) and know it does not help at all....You and I both know that but we react differently. Tomorrow will be here soon and then it will be over and the healing can finally begin!
Take care, I am also praying for you!
Hugs,
Gaye

Day of Rest

Sunday, February 28, 2010

DH and I are taking it easy today. He went to Denver yesterday for his Rotary function and came home with the fingers on his broken arm unbelievably swollen. The doctor told him to keep his arm elevated and iced for 2 to 3 days. Did he do it? No. He said "How was I supposed to get ice at a hotel?" Duh! Maybe he could have asked.

Oh well, It looks a little better after keeping it up and iced since he came home.

I have been on Spark all morning. I can't believe how much time I can spend here when I don't have anything to do!

    Nancy, hope dh is feeling better now...I hate swelling like that!

I had to cut way back on my computer time (I actually do it often because it just sort of "creeps up" on you if you don't watch it) in order to stay as active as I like to.

Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, poor guy. Sometimes you just want to clobber them when they don't use their head. Good thing you are there to take care of him.
I spend way to much time here too. Hard to stop chit chatting with friends!

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Good - I loved skating last night. After about 2 circuits of hanging on to the boards, I was able to skate and I really enjoyed the feeling of gliding, of mastery (well, of not falling down) and the wind in my hair. I skated for an hour straight and my HRM said I burned 900 calories. I enjoyed skating, but I worked like a dog.





Bad - My DH was not as comfortable on the ice and really didn't enjoy himself.

Ugly - He fell, landed on his hand and broke the end of radius (one of the long bones in the lower arm) into several pieces. He has a "comminuted compound intra articular distal radius fracture with dorsal angulation" and is going to need surgery for it. He won't be able to ski when the DGDs come in the middle of March.

    OUCH!!! Poor DH!! I hope the surgery & healing go well. (& btw, that's why you couldn't get me on a pair of skates for love or money -- I'd break several somethings within 5 minutes!)

    OH MY! I'm so sorry your husband was injured and so severely. The last time my husband and I played softball with all our kids and their friends (we would get a little silly) he broke his collarbone. Surgery sounds a lot worse.

I was wondering, prior to reading the BAD part, if you were working to be a new olympic hopeful? Smile. You and your hubby will be in my prayers.

    Oh no, I was really enjoying this blog until I got to the part about your husband. I am so sorry. Wow that fracture is a mouthful, will keep him in my prayers. Tell him I tripped in the air and broke my ankle a few years ago, at least he was doing something. Great calorie burn on your part, that was definitely good!

    The ugly sounds very ugly. I am sorry to hear that. I am sure your DH is very bummed. I bet he gets a lot of attention from the girls though, not that its a consolation. I will be praying for a quick healing.

And you go girl on those skates. You look good.

Thank God for Family!

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Yesterday we got to see our son for several hours after work. He lives in Denver and we don't see him a lot so it was great. Tonight I got home to a voicemail message from my 13 yo DGD saying she had something neat to tell me. When I called her back, she told me she tried out for track and made it and she is so excited! I am really happy my DD has shown her kids such a good example of a healthy active lifestyle. I wish I had gotten active earlier. BTW our DS told us he had joined a gym and is working out too! Wow!

We aren't going to the cabin this weekend because my workplace is holding a family skate night at our outdoor rink and DH and I are going to go and see if we can still stand up on skates before we take our DGDs skating when they come out in March. Saturday, DH is going to another Rotary function in Denver so it just isn't worth going up to the cabin for just one day.

I'm just happy and especially happy about the relationship we have with our kids and grandkids.

    Family is so important in this day and age. Just have them taken away from you through no control of your own and you will know. I am so happy for you Nancy that you are having a wonderful weekend. Good luck on those skates. emoticon
