This week has been very busy. Last Friday was Bob's 71st Birthday. Then Sunday was Easter. Although it was a quiet day, we still had a lot going on. I wasn't able to each much of the beautiful dinner Bob made us, but what I did have it was very good. The menu was baked ham with pineapple, mashed potato, and brussel sprouts. I had more of the sprouts than anything. Only two very small bites of ham, one forkful of the potatoes, 3 sprouts, and one pineapple ring. That was it. I couldn't handle anymore. My lips were even burning! Tuesday I finally felt well enough to get my hair cut. I have needed that for a long while. Yesterday I had both a manicure and a pedicure. They were having a special if you got both, so I did! Even with a tip. it was less than the total usually is. I love my finger nails. I'll have to have Bob take a picture so I can show you. The last manicure I had was before Christmas. The last pedicure was just about a year ago. So it was about time I had that done, too. When I do my own, I can't see them well enough to get the nails cut properly! Tomorrow I see my radiation oncologist for a check up. I was suppose to go last week, but Bob wasn't feeling very good. When I started to add my next chemo appointment to my schedule, I noticed it was for September 2nd. That happens to be Labor Day. I called today to tell them I thought we had a problem. She was really glad I called as they had others scheduled for that day, too. No one had ever marked it off as a holiday!! She was gong to have to make some calls to reschedule patients.
I'm still gaining some weight. I really appreciate all the advise everyone gave to me about this. The doctor should be happy as he wanted me to gain anyway. And I still am way within a healthy BMI. Since nothing seems to be helping, I thought I would revisit my earlier menus and exercise programs and try to follow them for awhile. Which I also think is about time!! I'm really not going by the number on the scale or even how my clothes fit. I am going by how I feel - which is still very tired and sluggish. The muscle I bruised in my fall still hasn't gone completely down from the initial swelling either. It's smaller than it was but obvious to me. Sometimes when things don't seem to change, we have to do what we have to do and think to ourselves, "Well it's about time! Why did I wait so long t try this option?"
Everyone have a lovely day. I feel so happy to have each of you in my life. I love you all. It doesn't get much better.
Peace, Love, Hope

First off thank you so much for all of your prayers and good thoughts for me and your support for Bob. I think he did a smashing job!! I am so blessed to have him in my life. I only wish I had gotten to meet his parents to thank them for letting me have a most precious gift of their son.
Sometimes we have to step back and take a breath and simply take the time to heal.
It has been nearly a month since I fell and I'm still a little sore, but getting better each day. Now I need to take the time to go over everything and see why all of a sudden I am gaining! It doesn't normally bother me, but I've never had it start coming back on consistently. For the past week I have added almost a full exercise program and I have been eating basically the same. Being I'm not as active, I haven't been as hungry and have cut back on snacks. Since those aren't very large anyway, I've still been within my range that is healthy. All I know is if this keeps up. I'll have to do something drastic - like start from day one!
Yes, this all means I'm back around, but I'm not on the computer as much as before. I guess that will have to change too, the more days I'm on more and more.
IT has been cool around here lately. This week we have had two frosts and the days have been in the 50's and finally got to the 60's yesterday. Today s 64. I can't believe this is the end of March in Florida!!!
My Easter wish for everyone is to have peace, love, and faith in their hearts today, tomorrow, and always.
I love you all!! And thanks again, my Buds. I couldn't do all of this without your prayers and support.

Well, i had to go to town yesterday to get Ev some meds. She promised she'd be careful, but when i got home, she had fallen again. At least she was inside this time and on carpet and not cement. It was the same side as before and her head hit the end table. She was really hurting and didn't try to hide it from me. i think this one really worried her as no one was here to help her. I told her I wouldn't go anywhere else without her ever again. She got her stubborn in place and insisted t could have happened if i was right here. Then I informed her, what if it would have happened right after i left and she would have broken something and couldn't get up, she would have laid there for several hours without help. I think i got through to her, as she isn't trying to change my mind anymore. That and she asked today if she isn't any better by tomorrow if she can go see her doctor again.
So, here i am asking for those continued prayers that have done such wonderful miracles.
Thank you everyone.

This is Bob again.
Ev was doing better, but then seemed to have stopped. Her eyes seem to be what bother her most. The doctor says sometimes these symptoms can last a month or two and that we shouldn't be concerned unless instead of staying the same, it gets worse. She isn't very talkative, but when she is it seems she goes on forever. One thing that bothers her is she isn't able to take care of her teams. I told her that was silly that all of you would understand. She also has some mail to answer. I told her the same with that. I do the best I can for her I wish it could be more. She loves everyone leaving responses and me reading them to her. Thank you for keeping both of us in prayer. She is happy we have a new pope in time for Easter week.
