    Glad you are going to have time to spend with the grand kids. You can still accomplish all you have set out to do. Remember, if you can't get to a computer you can call me.. OKAY?
If you get in a tight spot, just YELL.

    Hi busy lady. You are doing a great job.
Hope you make your 5 this month.
Are you ready for a little April showers this week?
If you have outside exercise to do, TODAY is the day. Sunshine with clouds mostly.

Brain Injury and Oxygen

Military plans to test brain injury therapy
April 01, 2010, Associated Press

DENVER - The U.S. military plans clinical trials next year to see if breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber helps brain injuries to heal, or at least relieve the headaches, mood swings or other symptoms.

About 300 service members with mild to moderate injuries will participate in the trials of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in Colorado, California, North Carolina and Texas.

Col. Richard Ricciardi (rih-CHAR'-dee) of the Defense Center of Excellence said Thursday the therapy is unproven but merits clinical trials.

He says the theory is that more oxygen dissolves in the blood when the body is under pressure, and increased oxygen levels can help tissue heal.

Nearly 120,000 service members have suffered traumatic brain injuries since 2003.

    I really hope it does some good. I worked on a TBI unit for a time (Traumatic Brain Injury). It was very heart wrenching.

    I hope it works. In comparison, it seems to be a relatively easy proceedure. It is terrible to have a brain injury and watch how it changes a person and what they have to go through.

From Psychology today

Monday, April 05, 2010

"Rest in stillness—to stop doing and focus on just being."

We need to live more in the moment. Living in the moment—also called mindfulness—is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present. When you become mindful, you realize that you are not your thoughts; you become an observer of your thoughts from moment to moment without judging them. Mindfulness involves being with your thoughts as they are, neither grasping at them nor pushing them away. Instead of letting your life go by without living it, you awaken to experience

    That article was great! Thanks for posting the link. ( I need to carry a box of raisins with me at all times lol) I also completely related to the periods of mindlessness...where you are driving and realize you have no idea how you got from one place to another!! emoticon

Excited my birthday is April 1st and I am thinner--thank you All!!!

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Yes, today is the last day of being only 65 only 1 and 1/2 hours of youth!! emoticon
I will be closer to 70 than 60--very interesting. I thought I was "old and wise" at 30--I get a great big laugh out of that now-a-days. emoticon

Now, at this age I don't feel any older and certainly not as wise as when I was 30.
I take that back -- my bones feel older. emoticon

I just want to thank all of you for making this year great. emoticon emoticon emoticon
