It's about time!

Thursday, April 04, 2013

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

Ev

    Good to know you're doing better, even if you still have some time ahead of you before you're back to feeling more like you were before the fall. You have your wits about you, for sure! It's shocking they didn't realize that was a holiday, so it's wonderful that you caught it this far in advance to correct them. I hope you can once again find your happy balance between a weight and activity level that works for you. In the meantime, so glad you got such a good price for a mani-pedi & got that haircut. Nothing like feeling a little extra beautiful to help a woman smile.

    I'm glad you were able to treat yourself to the haircut, mani and pedi; you deserve some pampering with all you have been through!

If you ask your oncologist, I'm sure he could refer to a dietician that has experience with cancer patients and that would give you some more ideas of healthy foods that you can tolerate that would help you gain some weight.

    I am so glad you are feeling a little bit better and gaining weight. You will need to to be safe through future treatments and problems. I think it is a GREAT idea to go by how you feel and forget the scale. Write a list of ANY foods you have any interest in and just concentrate on those for now. The rest will come later. Give my love also to Bob, and I hope you both have a wonderful weekend. Love, Chelsea emoticon

Sometimes we have to take the time

Friday, March 29, 2013

Hello everyone,

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.

Ev

    Give yourself a month to also get the body back on track. It is going to take more than a few days to get back on track since it took a month to heal from the fall. Does that make sense?

I am SO happy to hear from you again and please have Bob send us updates about himself too. emoticon We now love and know both of you. emoticon

You may have had gain from medications and sometimes trauma to the body like you had, puts the body in a weird mode...so don't worry. Just keep doing what you were doing before. Within 5 pounds of where you were or on maintenance is ok!
Have a great week, take care and spark when you can. Always is best to take care after what happened to you. emoticon

Insurance evaluation

Friday, March 22, 2013

When all of this started with Ev, she had to fill out a health form for our insurance company. We got the evaluation back. They said from some of her answers she needs to do some more things to try to prevent becoming frail. They are also have her form in the review committee to see if she will be okay for help because of all the falls indicating her becoming frail. Hopefully that will be one problem taken care of for us. The moe help she gets, the less worried I will be. She isn't in as much pain these past few days, but she is still very weak and tired. She does her exercises, but takes more time than before and she has to modify them more. i see her going back to doing them almost like she did when she was in her power chair all of the time. She does move her ankles and leg raises along with heel toe movements while she is sitting. She also walks around in the house during commercials when she watches TV. She pretty much eats as she has been, but is still gaining some weight.

She sure could use continued prayers for healing and we both can use them for the insurance company to okay her for help. Prayers do work and give us many miracles. God brought me Ev right when i needed her the very most. I love her dearly and would be lost without her.

She says to tell everyone hello and thank you for all your caring and prayers. She says to remind you to smile and she loves you all. She's really hoping to get back with you soon.

Bob

It Happened - again

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Hello everyone,

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.

Bob

    Very scary, Bob - and I imagine she will insist she can do some things on her own, which means when she tries to do them without you or someone around is when something's most apt to go wrong!

1) What about a "buddy" system? Will Ev agree to stick to quiet (i.e., sitting) activities whenever you're out?

2) What about having one of those alert buzzers - you know, the kind that people wear around their necks so they can press the button if they fall or hurt themselves? My aunt has had one for several years, and not until two weeks ago has she needed to use it - it was a lifesaver when she needed it, though. I think hers is called something like "Lifeline," but I'm sure your local medical people could give you information.

Meanwhile, emoticon to Ev, and to you too!

    Ev, there's a point where being stubborn can cause serious risks to your health. There are lots of stories of people who were stubborn and if they had been checked out right away they would've been okay. Falls are not to be taken lightly! Look at me - I'm 31 and yet the doctors ask me about falls because of my conditions and know it's dangerous for me to fall. You hit your head, twice, and that's crazy dangerous to be stubborn about. The more often you hit your head in a short length of time the exponentionally more dangerous it is.

Bob, is there a chance of getting someone to come to the house and help out when you need to be gone? Also, how about 'Ev-proofing' the house and making sure there aren't things around to trip on or easily fall against?

    That is too bad! Poor Ev. I think she should get checked out for sure! Take care and keep an eye on her. Thanks for the update Bob! emoticon

Another update

Friday, March 15, 2013

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.

Bob

    Ev, remember you must first take care of yourself in order to be able to help others. Your teams and sparkfriends will hang in there while you take care of yourself. When you're doing better then you'll be better able to help others again. Besides, we're all worried about you!

    Thanks for the update. I know but two things about concussions--(1)they usually heal completely (2) until they do they demand your total R-E-S-P-E-C-T. So rest, relax, heal because it takes what it takes. Besides, you already know that the song "I get knocked down, but I get up again" was written about you.

    Thanks for the update. Tell Ev to concentrate on healing and remember worry is like the rocking chair, it gives you something to do but gets you no where. We all know when she is able she will be back online, but her health is the most important thing at this time. emoticon emoticon

    Perhaps being a little rambunctious is good for the soul and to allow healing to take place. Ev, know that your friends and teams will wait patiently, while you get better. You're so fortunate to have such a beautiful loved one speaking for you online so we're kept up to date. Like having a will, I should probably have a few instructions put together for my online community should something happen to me.

    Thank you for the update Bob. I've been hoping for one. Keeping her in my prayers. I am not Catholic, but I am happy for all those who are. I have very strong beliefs myself and most are the same as the Catholics. I don't believe in abortion, euthanasia, pre-marital sex, etc. I heard - of all places - Rush Limbaugh - defending the pope (he's not Catholic either) and the church for not changing their beliefs to "suit" modern thinking. I SOOOO agree. The church is there to lead against immoral behavior, not bend to it. Good for the Pope and for the church. I applaud it's and his stand. I wish there were more of it in this dreadful world we live in.
Well, I've certainly gotten off topic here! LOL. Please give Ev my best wishes and some hugs, even tho she doesn't know me. :) Hugs are always good when they are meant. Hugs to you too for being such a caring hubby.
Carol

    Hi Bob! Please tell her this is a time of healing and that when she is back online, she can write a thank you blog and go from there (in other words, not try to catch up). People DO understand since all of us have had our slow and healing times too. emoticon emoticon Love, Chelsea

    Thanks Bob for helping keep us posted on Ev's condition. Concussions are no fun - I had a serious one back in 2006. It really knocked me out in left field. Concussions are a serious matter and tell her to go easy for a while. I know she's stubborn like me and wants to keep up. Ev, I had and still have serious memory lapses. I had to re-learn how to spell words. I still have trouble coordinating what my brain sees to what my body does. It happens - you can't rush the healing. Take care of yourself. Keeping y'all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending you love & hugs,
Ramona

    Thanks Bob for the update! Hope she gets better soon! Being a tried and true Spark fan as she is, it is hard not to want to keep up with things, like our streaks, teams and emails! We hate to get behind, but sometimes it has to be for our health's sake. Yes, we all understand if she can't keep up-just tell her to concentrate on rest and recovery. We don't want her to get worse! And computer work is the worst for your eyes and any kind of head aches or injuries!
Bob you are a gem and an honorary Sparker! My husband would do the same for me if I needed it done, if I were sick...he knows SP about as much as I do without being a member. Ev and I both have keeper husbands (my husband is Bob too)! Hang in there! emoticon emoticon
