He asked me how I was and of course i said ok. Then I said I guess not. With a list like this I feel like I am falling apart.
He was so thrilled with my weight, said I was a young 81. emoticon
He was so excited I could get off of the floor by myself. I've come a long way.
He is going to try the new shots in my knees, 5 in each one, which will take ten weeks.
I had read that they did have shots which would avoid knee replacement and repair cartilage so am hoping and emoticonit will work for me. Why not? With God and the knowledge He has given to the doctor's it WILL work.
He is cutting back on my heart medication to see if that is what is causing my emoticon
I am only taking a little tiny pill for palpitations and blood pressure and my blood pressure is always below 120 when I go in and always under 80 on the other part.
I do take a water pill because of swelling.
I see him in another week and I will try to remember to ask about the swelling.
I can't do the bicycle or treadmill for now so will be doing mainly upper body for my exercise. It is discouraging.
But he said my real age is definitely not 81.
I love my doctor too, He is a married middle aged Jewish man whom I have gone to for fourteen years.
So that is the story of my doctor's visit today.
Losing weight and exercising do do much for you. I read that overweight is America's number 1 killer. It leads to diabetes, heart disease and who knows what else.
SO EVERYONE, LET'S GET ON THE BALL. You who need to lose it. emoticon
You who need to maintain, do it. emoticon
One of your oldsters in years but young in Spirit.

    My GYN told me to go on the bone pills and I told him I didn't want to. I do not have Osco yet, and I heard so much bad news about them. He sent me to a nice woman doc who deals with that stuff and she confirmed my suspicion about the bone pills can cause jaw problems and your dentist will not work on you because of problems that could arise. Anyway, I had not stood up straight when the nurse weighed me and I came out 4 ft. ll.
When he saw me he said he will have to get a pillow for me to get up on the table if I continue to lose bone. Well, the next year I stood up straight and when he saw I was 5 feet, I told him I guess I grew an inch and he laughed. I know how to fool the doctor. LOL

I'd say you're really doing well for an 81 year old lady and probably better than this 74 year old, old lady, lol.

You write such nice blogs, I don't know, it seems the doctor feels you are doing quite well and that you are actually younger than what we have been told. I don't think I knew your age, always thought you were younger. I have never heard of those shots for the knees, Wow, That is really great. So when is he going start?
I think you need to give yourself a pat on the back. You really are doing great and maybe you ought to believe it also
I understand that heart disease is still number one and it is helped by obesity, Thank you for reminding each of us what we need to do.
I do appreciate that you would share with us your Doctor visit today.

    You are such a blessing, Irene! Good for you on your dr. report!

Do you know the name of the shots he intends to give you? Is it Synvisc? or Hyalgin, Hyaluronan? These are the 'chicken' shots that everyone has talked about for the last few years.

I had the Hyalgin. It did help. I won't lie, it was very painful. Make sure you take a good strong dose of pain meds before you go and baby your knees for a few days. Don't forget to ice. In fact, for the day you get the shot, I would have my frozen dinners on hand and someone to drive you.

It did take a few months for the shots to actually kick in, so don't think they aren't working if you don't get immediate relief. I also fight with fibro, so I'm pretty certain that delayed my recovery from the shots themselves. It may not take so long for you to feel better.

I've had the Cortisone shots and they did nothing. From the sounds of what you've described, I'm betting it's the same family of drugs I had, though. You're an awesome lady! I hope they help!

God bless you!

I wrote this Friday and somehow it disappeared into thin air or was it thick air.
Hope it doesn't do the same again emoticon I hate to write something like this and have it go emoticon emoticon
So here it is again.
Friday I went to the gym like a good little girl. As most know regular gym clothes have no pockets so ladies put their things in their Bra. Now if you men don't want to read on you can just delete this and go on to something else.
I returned home. Got my patio dress and went into the office to turn on the computer. I changed clothes and all comfy I am ready to go.
I worked on the computer, then went to the living room to read a bit and watch television. I am always trying to multi-task.
Well, I had a lot to carry to different rooms so I did what we aren't supposed to do, tried and did carry it all at once.
Later on when it is almost time to pick up my g/f at the airport and she is going to call me to let me know she was in I thought "where is my phone". I looked and looked, no phone.
I looked in the living room, I looked in both bathrooms, I looked in the office, I looked in the bedroom, even in the kitchen and on my dinette table. No phone emoticon help me find my phone.
So I dialed myself. I could hear the phone ringing. I was in the office. I moved everything, looked every where, No Phone. Ok I will get in the floor, something I used to couldn't do. I crawled around. I did not find the phone. I got up looked on the book shelves. Everywhere I went the phone would sound like it was right there but no phone.
Next I went back to the living room and dialed myself again. I could hear the phone just as if it was right there but could find it no where. Everywhere I moved it sounded like the phone was right there. It was almost time for my g/f to call. I couldn't figure out why the phone sounded like it was everywhere I went. Went to the car to look but it was not there.
Now you think it was in my bra. No way. I take the harness off when I get home.
Somehow I touched my tummy and felt my phone. emoticon
Multi-tasking I had put my phone in my panties (sorry gentlemen I warned you) and had carried the other stuff to the bed room and living room and kitchen. That is why the phone rang everywhere I went.
I learned a lesson. Multitasking can lead to more exercise especialy if you are crawling around in the floor.
So here goes. Hope I don't lose this.
I won't sign my name. LOL

    Great story, PTL it was not on vibrate. emoticon Might have found it sooner though. God has a way of teaching us things doesn't He. We think we'll save time and He allows us to slow down. A missionary pilot friend stayed here this week and he wear his phone in little bag around his neck. He kept dropping it off his belt holder. Maybe you should look into something like that. emoticon

    So funny, Irene! I lost my phone one day, from out of my pants pocket. After searching for a while, I used our hard line to dial that number, and heard it ringing. It had wiggled out of my pocket and was hidden in the seat folds of my recliner. Yet one more reason I will always have a landline if I can afford it; so I can find my cell phone.

Some of you have asked me to write more about my mission work. This is the news-letter I wrote this morning. If you go to my Spark Page you can find out more. I would have to write a book to tell you the complete story.
Almost another year is almost half over and only what we have done for Christ will last. What have we done? How many souls won? How many people encouraged?
As most of you know Mexico has been a very dangerous place and the Texas border is getting worse all of the time. Sometimes plans would be made to go to Mexico then Mexico would close the border for a few days saying something big was coming down. People are afraid to run for office and police want to quit their jobs because of shootings and murders of both according to the news.
People were warning me to not go to Mexico but I was stomping at the bit. Even my helper didnít want to go one day when we planned to go and spoke of moving back up to East Texas but she came back and we were able to go over this week.
Everything was quiet and we had no trouble at all. We found pastors Martin and Maria waiting for us at the church and parsonage. Much progress has been made at the parsonage. The tile floor is down and is beautiful, part of it is painted and the doors and windows are installed. They need to install the electricity now and a few other things. We were blessed with a good offering to leave with them towards this.
They had things they wanted prayer for so we had a good time of prayer and counseling then came home happy to have been a blessing.
Thanks to each and every one of you who make this possible.
There was a huge prayer meeting at the church I attend state side. People from Mexico came over as well as people from Spanish speaking churches on this side of the border along with missionaries. The church was packed out with over 1,000 people. People prayed for Mexico.
God bless you all,
Your Missionary Irene Davis

Today as you know I was going to Mexico. So many said don't go but it was so quiet. Nothing bad going on and I got to do the business I went to do and also counsel and pray or the pastors.
It was when I arrived back to Texas that things started happening. One friend said a bowling game in the heavens.
It was thundering and lightening, the wind blowing, tornado warnings out and it is still thundering.
My g/f who went with me lives 50 miles from here. She had gone about 1/4 of a mile and a red light was dangling from the wind. She went a couple of blocks and pulled into a parking lot and waited until the worst was over then went on home.
Maybe we were supposed to stay in Mexico. emoticon I heard some were worried about me so maybe you will read this and know I am safe but tired. I am washing clothes also but will go to bed soon, maybe.

    It is good the Mexico part was OK. Texas seems to be getting it today with wild weather and someplace near Dallas having an explosion!

    Wonderful to hear you had a safe trip. My step-son went to Kuwait the Saturday before Memorial day. I've been worried, but your blog helped me to put things in perspective. The safest place is at the center of God's will. He's a good, young man and a hope he is where he's supposed to be. We pray for him continuously. Hope you get some rest from your trip.

I treated myself to a Pedicure

Sunday, June 06, 2010

Not a real one but one using Spark Points. Now why did I do that? One team has this on their challenges and I thought it would be fun.
So what did I want and need?
I needed a pedicure and my feet feel so good when I am finished.
Maybe next time I will treat myself to a day at the SPA. I don't want to run out of points using them on myself though as I need some to give to you.

  I was given a gift ctf. about 2 yrs. ago and am now a regular. Every 2 mos. without fail. Also, once a month a facial and massage. After all, we have to take care of ourselves so we can do for others. Right? Also, while I'm getting these fun things done I'm not agonizing about the weight which absolutely refuses to leave.

    And take Gloria to the beach! heeheehee

I get REAL pedicures every 8 weeks or so from my friend who is a nurse. Well, she's a retired nurse and now goes around to nursing homes and the homes of seniors to take care of their feet. She takes a long time with me because we are friends and we gab, gab, gab, lol. Feels great to have my feet always in good shape and I enjoy the pampering!

Treat yourself to a real one Irene! Enjoy!
