For those that pray

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

can you say a prayer for my friend Gail... she has chronic lukemia, which I had never heard of till I met her. I met her at one of my nursing home jobs, She is a bit older than I, and was sick then, She is a nurse, has a port in her upper chest to inject her own meds. She is always in pain but at that time was working, then would have to take 2 -3 wks off cos of exhaustion.
Has been off work for ages now and FINALLY got accepted as disabled and money from long term. You know what made her get it, the dr wrote and said all I am doing for her now is comfort measures, which is comprable almost to palliative care.
Well saw her name and number on the fridge yesterday adn thought of her. Today while we were at the grocery store who did we see but Gail. She is looking good. Just back from her dr from nerve blocks which she has to have often. But she is waiting for some shot in her spine as the issues have led to otthers which now are bothering her bowels etc. She said the nerve block shots are wicked but her pain is worse, but these ones in her spine are so bad even she hates to go.
Said she is okay, holding her own, loving her dog, and still making cards. I am not a religious person, spiritual yes, but Someone is taking care of her, whoevr you want to call it, her , him... Her hubby left her long ago, her kids are married and she really relies on 2 friends.

A few years ago she Gail, put a benefit together for her friend who had breast cancer. Here she is with lukemia, and very ill yet she does all the work to get a benefit going for someone else. I hope that people step up to the plate for her. I made her 2 scarves last year and think that the one I am doing now will be for her too. Perhaps I will buy a pc of guaze type to make her a spring one. She wears them to hide her port.
So after seeing her and just loving her, the most gracious and giving person I have met along with my friend Tanna,( the one with breast cancer then lung cancer) I feel blessed to be as healthy as i am, able to do what I do.
I am going to finish up here, and go make a card for Gail and get the last tiny bit of scarf done and take over to her. She is such an amazing woman............. SO SO thankful to have met and learned from her.

    How kind of you to ask for prayers for her sake. I would be honored to lift her up in prayer. I don' know if she's a Christian , but if she is I'm sure she is finding comfort & strength through His word . God bless, Gail
Some of us are blessed with SO much, health being the most important & we take it for granted. This blog is a good reminder to count our blessings

Happy Canada Day

Monday, July 01, 2013

Happy Canada day to all my Canadian Spark friends from coast to coast and those that live else where.
We have had such strange weather today, rain, downpours, sun, rain, sun, downpours So now the sun is going in but not raining. The street is actually drying up. Who knows.....
Hubby suggested a drive today, so we went to an area we have never travelled and decided not to look at houses in that area any longer. I really think it may be on our land as we have wanted for so long. But not sure yet.
I started getting a headache behind my eyes, an hr or so ago. Hubby had one earlier. Probably the diff weather although doesnt feel as if it is sinus at all. oh well it will leave.
Going to go ask dad if he wants to come up for bbq.. he isn't eating much. last night had strawberries for supper but didnt want what we were having. he did have a big brunch though.
Well my house is a mess, and I am in the mood to make a list for Right now just being here is nearly too much with my eyes. Guess will go up and do a bit on my journal or maybe just go lay and read for bit.
Talk to you all later and again happy Canada Day for a proud Canadian to many others

Happy - sad day

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Mum would have been 87 today but instead we just wished her a happy birthday on our own. I miss her so much but know that she didn't need more days the way she was.
So instead dad wanted to go out for breakfast, then he actually went to costco with us, he walked the perimeter while hubby stayed with him and I went down the aisles to get what I needed. Not a long visit which was fine as it was so busy.
We found a tick on Allie just below her collar on her back, We got it out and hope we don't find any more. YUK! She wasn't impressed with hubby flipping her trying to keep her still, and he ended up sitting on her sort of. but we got it and then just loved her lots.
Later we went over to Thomas and Evas and had a good visit. They were so funny, he is so all boy and she is so tiny, quiet and playing in the little kitchen on the deck pouring water from one thing to the other. Got some good pics but they are on ds phone so he will put them up later. I will share after I get them.
Did a page of my art journal this eve, butw as so humid upstairs......... whew.
Now should go have a shower and go to bed. Very sticky - calling for more rain. geesh. but thankfully no flooding here.
HUGS all and hope you all sleep well or have a great day!
Early HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! I can hear the fireworks but not see them, jst a bit too far away.

    hate ticks. We get them sometimes here. Especially if he hasn't mowed recently.

Can't wait to see the pictures!

I feel the same way about my mom. I miss her but would not have wanted her to go on the way she was. emoticon

Friday evening

Friday, June 28, 2013

Well busy day but a good one till around 5.
This am ,had my dr apointment, and he just wanted to talk more about fibro and what to do now. He also gave me some pointers for the phone call that was to come. I was on the phone from 12 till nearly 1:20 I don't think she missed anything at all. Guess it went okay I was fine but tired out from it.
Anjay and her hubby came for a visit, and that was so nice as haven't seen them in ages. She also brought me a gift from when she was in Scotland. Now too funny, we are planning to go down to her end of province tomorrow so may drop in. Not totally sure as I have to go to the mall for dd as she isnt here and OH NEEDS flip flops from old navy for a $ tomorrow. lol but then she does wear them nearly year round. lol
I was doing well, today then around 5 or so felt that blanket of depression coming... we were at the grocery store and told hubby it is hard not to cry. We talked on way home about evryting that could be bugging me, and really was nothing just an overwhelming sad feeling. It is gone now but was there for while. Srange how it comes and goes like that.
Now it is just after 10 and I am going to go to bed, tired and want to read. Opps Allie just sat on my feet. guess she doesn't want me to move. LOL
night all Hugs

    I have those same feelings too and wonder what they are. I wonder if it has something to do with your disease process. I never had them before - feel like breaking out into tears.

Thursday home from trailer

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Well we got home just after 1 and we are both beat. I slept very poorly cos of pain in my legs every time I moved. and at 8:15 I had gotten back from a walk with allie and heard JIM JIM JERRY FIRE FIRE! so I went out and one next door had noticed smoke from another trailer but all outside. They fixed it was just an elec. thing outdoors but of course hubby was awake too. So neither of us got much sleep.
Long term called 3 x while we were away, I got them on my 2ncd return call. They are calling me back tomorrow at noon for a 1- 1.5 hr phone calla bout my conditions, my abilities, my pain, my meds, my dr. adn then my education. WHEW she suggested having evertying ready to tell her. HA I know and also theyt have it all.
Also dr called said I have an apt for yesterday, so called her and she got me in on a cancellation tomorrow at 10. Good as I can ask him if he is going to write anything or say anything tell me and I can fax it to her. lol
So have one load of laundry but want the jeans hubby has on so will do that later. I have to some time tomorrow get some groceries but that's okay cos maybe we will have company.
Too bad long term have to do the call tomorrow, I said we were having co. but she has to have it done by Friday as she is going away for a week.
Hope I sleep better this eve, and hubby too. Busy day tomorrow at least for me in the morning.
Okay going to go and put some laundry away. Very slow walking as both knees are really paining a lot. dd was just hre to take dads socks off and her sciatica started and son in laws shoulder is acting up. LOL they are so achy for so young!
