Monday evening

Monday, April 29, 2013

Good evening all, well just after suppertime.
Had a good day, went to massage today and so far it went well. I hope it continues, only a touch of pain in my back right now.
Hubby sorted a bit in the shed, and dad got his boxes and sat on the deck and sorted through some of it. Tossed some not lots. lol
Dr called, I have an apt. wed. afternoon. Surprised me as figured it would be awhile as only saw him last week. He had said he would do a full neruological testing. Then long term called and said she was going to fax dr and get an updated evaluation from him since I had seen him 3 times since they had gotten anything. Fine. so figure if he does this and then does the stuff for them, it will all be up and current.
Hubby has plans to start on the driveway and side walkway this week. I hope the weather holds so he can do it, we haven't the money to do the driveway rightt away so he is going to use some of the gravel etc. and small concrete to fill the part of the driveway that we have made mud from driving there so dad has more room. Hopefully later in the summer we can get it paved only have to do that part as rest is done. He has to jackhammer the side up as it is steps and none are the right drop and very unsafe for anyone let alone dad. So that too will be done then a rail has to be put in on one side.
May 20th area he is going to do dd bathroom ( only nearly a year late birthday present! Sigh). Then after I sure hope our deck stairs get started. Then it will be the main floor bath which doesnt bother me right now. As long as it is done by surgery.
I looked back at when I went to the knee spec. as we were tryign to figure a year and a half. I went dec. 4th lol seems longer than that we were thinking it was yet I was sure it was late spring so yea. time and hope that all this physio I am learning will help me continue at home. Still freak out about it but hey not worrying as long time yet.
Well have some library magazines I should look at as want to return it all tomorrow.
For now, going to walk around house for bit as just got a sharp pain in back/butt - it left but still.
Hope you all have a great evening. Maybe hubby will even walk with Allie and I later. not holding my breath.
Cya hugs

    Your hubby sounds as busy as mine hahahaha Hubby just planted some sun patients today for me and tidied up the front a little bit, his friend came over to return the lawn mower so he figured after he left he'd plant for me. I hope you had an enjoyable walk and got to enjoy nature! emoticon emoticon

Still chilly Saturday

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Was supposed to get to 11 today, well nope it was still chilly and people at the campground fixing up their trailers and area were in hoodies and gloves. brrr. tomorrow now they say, let's hope so.

So that is what we did today, stopped at the rv store, to pick up a lock that wasn't with our king pin thing that we bought. Then to the trailer and back. was a good day other than being so cold.

Now cos I am so hungry and have no clue what to eat, I will go get in the suana, had a huge salad and steak for supper, 2 rice cakes with a bit of jam ( no sugar) after supper, 1/3 cup of nuts so no need to be hungry....

cya tomorrow.

quick blog on naturopaths visit

Friday, April 26, 2013

I am exhausted, beat so tired. anyway naturopath said lets continue on for 6wks cos still now have to get the gluten out and see how I do, if not any better then elimination diet. She kept me on the probiotics, and magnesium, and gave me a diff antiinflammatory type supp has curcumin, broemelain and a few other things so she is hoping the combo may work better.
Anyway will see willing to try. Told her having issues with meals and she gave me some ideas.

Now I am so so so so tired, no idea why but had a nap at 7 for 20 mins till allie woke me up. Going to make a cup of tea and go to bed. my back is aching and I am just tired. So much for getting stuff ready this eve for going to trailer........

    Sadly, natural healing always seems to take a long time to kick in. On the other hand, when you finally get it all figured out, you'll actually be regaining your health instead of just taking medications to cover your symptoms. It'll be worth it. emoticon

    I have heard really good things about curcumin, It will be interesting to see how this works. I am hoping they stumble on the key to solving this problem.

wow it is Friday

Friday, April 26, 2013

What a busy week I have had. Apointments every day this week, all health related other than 1 which we had to go pay for our seasonal spot at the trailer park. they open May 10th this year and this weekend they are opening for seasonals to get their stuff ready! So back tomorrow so we can take a lot up and then have better room for allie next time we go. Clean up and figure what to put where adn what we need. the heavier sheets for first while then switch them up. get the kitchen area tidy and re washed and all that stuff. Only going for the day.

Naturopath apointment in an hr and half. Not sure what she will say, I don't know that I am feeling a ton better, I am but is it the combo of her and myofascial release as that is when I feel best after stretching. Yes eating better helping but know not eating as well as I was the first few weeks. Back at it but also know I hae to have some of the gf treats ( homemade as would never keep at it the way I did those 3 wks) Still itching, still sore back today adn thumb, and my darn gait is so off. They are all say once the knee is done hoping that will change things.

So best go and get some breakfast, then up and shower and get on with it as have to be downtown for 10:45 and is 9 now.

Blog #2 Dr appointment

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Back from dr appointment which ended up good as I figured it would. What the NS govt has scheduled as a 15 min apt turned to a 40 min one. He is always good that way but it isn't so great when you are the one waiting. lol
so....... lets see......... pap was fine. whew. not celiac good but did say you still could have a gluten intolerance ( makes me laugh at his diff. in opinion). he checked something on the puter for my rash on my arms, and there are 2 diff things to do for what he thought it could be one was a medication that you have to have your blood tested often while on it, and he wasn't doing that and the other was ---- go gluten free! LOL so will keep on checking and did give me a script for some cream if I want it. said it may slow it down so it doesnt scar as bad.
My L foot xray was interesting. outer edge of big toe has arthritis the area where my toes and foot meet arthritis, top of my foot has arthritis and something else I dont remember and there are 2 bone spurs... he said if that got bad enough I could have that ground down. Uh no thanks.

I then said do you remember me asking you about MS. yes.... so I mentioned the symptoms and such and he wrote it all down. asked me in particular about my eyes, ( have eye exam in June booked 2 years in advance as that dr is so busy) nothing I have noticed there. so he said he will do a full nerurological exam and then will send me to a specialist if need be. He is sure it isnt MS but that the arthritis is progressing and causing the nerves to be bothered. Glad that I am getting my inflammation down as that will help, rather by naturopath or my meds he was just pleased. So he will call with an apointment , as it is rather long and will take time. I am fine with that.
Long term haven't called him, nor me so that is fine. I will probably call them tomorrow as I said I would let her know about the dr apt. nver thought to get a copy of the foot exray for them. oh well next time I go.
Now to make supper, offered dad supper but all he wants is french fries and preferably deep fried I said well then sorry but you will hae to do it or go out. he dep fries so thinks we all should he is 87 and eats like this and "nothing wrong with me".
But an hr or so before supper so guess will read the rest of my library magazines and return them, then after going to lol start my curtains, hubby got my machine out for me.

Okay off I go for now. cya HUGS

    My doctor told me that the only accurate test for celiac disease is a gastroscopy with a biopsy and of course I passed on it. LOL. According to him if you do an elimination diet and feel better that should be enough to consider pursuing it and maintaining it.
