Well, I promised this but wanted to wait until I knew something more to report.
Some of you already know I fell out of my chair while putting my socks on. Just tumbled out like I tumbled out of the bed the other time.
Here I go with the promise.
The doctor said my blood work showed my potassium was so he called in a prescription for potassium. Then in a week I have to have it checked again.
He said that could very well be my problem. I had been taking over the counter. I have asked my internist about my potassium and he said it was OK. I am glad I went someplace else to have my blood work done.
They also checked my b-12 and warned me medicare might not pay and I had to sign to pay if they don't $115.00 but I had been wanting to know about it anyway. My b-12 was fine. Maybe all of the veggies and fruit I consume.
Then today a nurse came out from the PT place. She is so nice and her father is an ordained minister. She saw my Bible on the table and saw it was in Spanish so got to tell her why I speak Spanish. I am so glad she is a Christian.
Next week another nurse from there will come out and also a social worker to see what they can do for me. I believe God sent me this young lady and she asked for prayer. She didn't say but think she has marital problems.
everyone for being so kind and concerned for me. I love my 's and thank you for your patience as I wanted something more to report.
Well, I am almost completely healed from my fall. I appreciate friends who help me since I have no family here.
Also I appreciate my Spark Friends as you really seem to care and I have made some really good friends on here.
Now, for the latest.
My g/f fell while walking. Did you know can be hard for your health just as can also be a shock when you hit the floor and can make you ache for a few days?
My g/f has a boot and has difficult wearing it. She doesn't get out much as I can't help her and I don't want her to fall if she tries to get in my
I know she gets lonely so I try to call her and visited with her last evening.
Well, I called her yesterday and she fell off of her sofa trying to get her phone out of her pocket so calling a friend can be dangerous also.
I had gone out yesterday to wash my car, get a manicure and pedicure and stopped at a health food store to shop for her and for myself so had called her to find out what she wanted. She did not hurt herself.
Then I went to her house to leave the groceries and to visit awhile with her and arrived at home at 5:00 p.m. Had gone out at 10:30 a.m. so was very tired but I HAD to watch "The Biggest Loser' so Sparked awhile then watched that and the last part of Dancing with the Stars. I used to dance but wore clothes
Today my house cleaner comes. That is my most exciting event for the day and I will be happy. She always says my house is clean that I should see some of the other houses.
I Pasted this to all of my teams but for those who don't belong to one of the teams I am pasting it into this blog.
This morning the phone rang. I reached for my cell and rolled out of bed. I tried and tried to get up and even drug myself from the bed room to the office.
Couldn't roll over on my knees as I have bad knees and had nothing sturdy to pull myself up with and also because of my knees so drug myself back to the bed room.
It took about 2 hours to do all of this. My phone was in the bedroom so called a friend who has my key in case I need something. They watch out for me. He told me how to get up and I hurt my knee again as it was the way I had tried to get up before. Finally we got me up.
I hurt all over, my knees, my back, my side you name it I hurt there.
I called my girl friend and we went out for a late lunch as we both slept. I woke up hurting so bad so I took two Tylenol and she came by for me. It still hurt to walk, we ate and I went back to bed and slept until now and feel much better.
Now when the phone rings I will let it ring. I had slept in this morning as I was tired.
It is really very simple. Easy as pie.
The other day I ate at a buffet which had and
The cake didn't look good but I decided to take a tiny piece, the smallest piece they had, and put some ice cream on it.
Usually my g/f drops food in the floor, on her chair on her but this time I took a bit and before it got to my mouth it fell to the floor.
My friend laughed and said now you are doing what I do.
So I took another bite and guess what It fell to the floor. Well, half of the cake was gone as I chose a piece that had about four small bites in it. So I did eat the other two bites, dry and not tasty at all and the ice cream.
I dropped chocolate ice cream on my blouse.
So that is the easiest way to have portion control just in case you were wondering. Drop half of it on the floor.
You thought I was going to write something serious didn't you? Well it is good for a laugh and it really does work as well.
After such a wonderful day Sunday, and by the way, all 600 of those young people were from one church. Can you imagine. It is a missionary church and they send people out all over the world, young and old alike.
Well Tuesday, I went out to eat again and the girls soft ball team was there. They were so nice and polite and even helped me scoop my ice cream ( I know it is a no no but it was a very small scoop)
Afterwards I went over to one of the sponsors or coaches and we introduced ourselves. I told her How nice they were. When I asked them who was the best player one young lady said "All of us". I said that is what a team is. So I was talking to the lady about that and we got to talking, the kids got to cheering and I gave a 10 minute talk right in the restaurant.
We hear about all the bad things the young people do. We need to hear about the good things people do.
Well, the devil got mad again and when I got home I got sick and was worn out Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday. Am feeling much better.
One thing I know, no matter our age God isn't through with us yet. As long as He has us here He has a purpose for our lives and we must take care of these bodies so we can fulfill that purpose.
