So much has been going on I haven't been able to write like I would like to.
So here is another blog I promised a few days back.
The same week I fell, then went to the cardiologist and other things I received a telephone call.
30 years ago I had a student in a Bible School in Mexico who was studying for the ministry. She married another student and they are pastoring a church in Cd. Victoria, Old Mexico.
She wanted to come see me so her and another lady came and it was so good to see an older version of her. What a blessing.
Saturday I had a very busy and a tiring morning as I had so much to do. Finally I did go out to lunch at a small restaurant nearby where the owners and wait persons all know me.
I was tired, hungry and ready to eat but it was difficult to even get through the line as one wait person wanted to talk.
When I got to my table my waitress sat down with me and said "I have troubles"
I was so tired and hungry but she needed someone to talk to so I listened.
Someone in my Sunday School class told me you should just say move on I have troubles of my own and I am hungry and need to eat. I said, that is not me. I have lived to serve other people for over 50 years now and will continue where ever God gives me a pulpit.
Later in the s.s. class he began to ask for prayer for his family in Mexico as they have some really bad problems. He said they are not my responsibility though. My heart almost burst with compassion and I began to speak to him as God spoke to me. He began to cry. I let him know that we must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and we shall be saved and our family as Acts 16:31 says.
Afterwards I went to him and said I feel you need a hug. He cried on my shoulder and thanked me over and over.
Then our pastor preached on our responsibility to our families which confirmed what I had told him.
After church I went to have lunch with the couple who celebrated t heir 67th anniversary along with their son. The son's wife was out of town.
This son told me to make a list of things I needed done around here. He came out the other day and fixed a 28 year old lamp I love and also a drawer (also 28 years old) which had fallen down in the back.
I thank God for my church family which God has given me. Everyone was so nice to me yesterday.
God bless you. Hope I didn't bore you but to me it is such a joy.
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.
