The sun is shining

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Things are going very well. I did have one day of slip ups but that day was over and it's back on track. I lost another lb so it's moving, slowly but moving. I fixed the crock pot for steak pizzola today. I had a few pieces of steak, added potatoes for my husband, onions, green beans, zucchini, and tomato sauce. The smell is driving us crazy and I am so looking forward to this.

It's a beautiful sunny day and a great one for doing laundry and hanging it outside.

Truly blessed

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Things are going well. It's so true that The Lord doesn't give you more than you can handle. My family is so Blessed. Our problems are so minor compared to others around us and good things always seem to follow us.

My daughter is doing very well. The recovery is going much better than they even hoped for. My parents got a notice that the help we applied for was granted so they will be getting some relief taking care of them. When you are in your 90's and fall between the cracks, sometimes you don't know where to turn.

Now it's time to get back to the day to day activities of life.

The Day After

Friday, July 18, 2014

Surgery went well yesterday. My daughter is home and recovering now. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers, we are truly blessed. The stress was overwhelming but we made it through and most of all I did good not eating my feelings. I thought about all kinds of foods but I refrained and stuck to my plan. This was a huge step for me and showed me how I can manage. I came across a great quote from a FB friend,
Mark Ludlow who lost tons of weight and is keeping it off. He said

"When the mind is satisfied, the body quits craving food".

This made an impression on me because everyone focuses on the physical part of dieting but rarely addresses the mental part. If you really want to change a habit, change your mind!

Daughters surgery

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

We got the word that my daughter goes into surgery tomorrow. It's for a torn miniscus and bone fragments in her knee. We expect all to go well but if you have any prayers you could send her way, they would be most appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

I don't know what to do anymore. My husband fell again this morning. Thankfully our rugs are well padded so he didn't get anything more than the soreness that comes from falling. He will not see a Dr and I don't know why he keeps falling except that it's happening more often, like at least once a week now. I'm afraid to go out with him as I'm afraid something will happen. His walking is really off too. I've tried talking to him but the last Dr visit left such a bitterness that he will not discuss it. I don't want something serious to happen where he ends up in the hospital before this is checked out.

What would cause all these fallings? Anyone have any ideas?

    hon, it could be several things, and it is really difficult to make a guess, because you or he might latch on to something that it COULD be and never get checked out to find out if it is something that could be corrected or not.
Somehow, you will have to get him to see a doctor. If it is just that he does not care for your regular doctor, trying going at it from the emergency rooms, where whatever docttor is on will have a look.

It may take just a simple adjustment of any medication he is on, or it could be something a bit more serious, but falling that often is definitely not a good sign and not something to play around with. It just took one fall for me to break my wrist....he is lucky his falls have been on carpet and hasn't seriously hurt himself.

Good luck in getting him to see the doc
