Traumatic Tuesday now

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Well had my dr apt and he said the letter from the dr about the testing on my legs shows no blockage in lower leg leaving him to think it is my back. He then said what about work, I said you have me off till Nov. he said lets be realistic since the ct scan we know you can't do this, and you probably can't sit long can I have to get up and walk a bit, and stretch. So even though I knew it would come, I really thought he was waiting for the specialist. He is also referring me to a chronic pain management course that is run by dr, nurse, pt, ot and physciatrists. so good thing. He also told me to go down to 2 of the pills if needed watch my flutters. the strange pain in my foot is internal charly horses that are like when your muscles contract and you can see it on your leg, bwell that is the top of my foot. I said good to know as it ws happening again and my mind was starting to freak where the pain is so severe but my toes aren't doing anything.
So a lot of decisions now, but my mind is still not processing it all. I wanted to be off which is true, but still in awe as didnt expect it today, he said Cindy I will support you in a long term off work decision. I will give the proper paperwork ect. so guess he is on my side!
Okay can't tihink about all the decisions. many depend if my long term insurance will continue to pay or I get govt insurance at least 55 % less. But also depends on dad. breathing is going to be crucial with my back and mind a shambles.
so going to bed took morphine so back must be bad and will hopefully sleep well.
hugs all

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I am thankful today for many things...
today I am thankful that I haven't been in much pain in a few days.
for the beautiful fall weather
for being home with hubby this last 6 months other than pain and no money it has helped us both
for being in the moment more and learning to do the work needed ( slow learner!LOL)
for family and friends real and net ones
for having enough and knowing it

so today I relished these thoughts on my walk and had a super walk. Yes it was still slow but not as slow as Marlo usually walks, She too likes the cooler weather. I walked with intention today - I really did outloud say CORE I would be happy if you walked with me... and also said shoulders down and back and crown to the sky. I have very poor posture which I find I am able to "fix" more often now and remember to do so more often.
Today we will work on the deck a bit, get groceries, go to dads to deliver some groceries. I also will see if hubby wants to go for walk at the beach but doubtful as we want to work on the deck while the weather holds. we have all the boards off, nails outand now just the framing to take off so we can get to the inital job of jacking up the upper deck!

OH OH forgot!! sort of glad that it isn't my main focus! I am down to 189 again! And my next number in sight is 185. I was that for years till I had my hysterectomy and found 10 lbs and bit more.
What can i do today to make my tomorrow a better day!!??
- walk dog
- walk with intention ( I like that !)
-eat healthy meals and proper portions
-drink my water
- help hubby with deck
- visit with dad
-ride bike later on for 20mins or more
- think of thankful things
- read more in the book the healing circle ( can't say enough good about that book especially for anyone that has or has family friends with cancer)

HUGS sparkers, my spark is like a shine in the sun today. OFF I go to get a healthy breakfast.

    You make me smile when I see how much more positive you've become. See that one little bad day was just that - a bad day. Even positive people have them. Taking stock & being grateful always makes me happy. The fall colours are so pretty here in Quebec. Where I grew up on Vancouver Island, we don't get pretty falls. Most of the trees are evergreens!

Terrific Tuesday!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

HI there sparkers! I am back with my spark lit and ready to glow!
Today walked the dog a fair bit farther, not sure on exact time cos near the house we stopped to chat with a neighbour I haven't seen all summer. Went to seniors yoga which is still a workout, just takes some of them longer to get into position. lol About 1/3 of way through my back un hurt lol felt so great, then continued on and stretched even better.
Picked dad up on way home, stopped got hubby and we went to drugstore with him and got a raised toilet seat and gave the not that has to go in to see if he can get a thing that lowers you into the water for a bath. Great contraption so hope he gets it.
Home had a colourful and healhty plate with 2/3 veggies. yes veggies i like but still good ones.
This eve is biggest loser and I will ride the bike for some and then yoga stretches for some.
Weather is super fantastic today loving it. Tomorrow more of the same, I will go hold the can of paint for son in law while he paints 2 windows. Then hubby and i are back at the other half fo the deck. Have to get that done soon while the weather holds.
Going to be a great day tomorrow too.
What I did today to make my tomorrow a better day for me.
- ate healthy all day
-drank my water
-yoga mind and body ahhhhhhhh
- reading healing circle awesome book for anyone with cancer or chronic pain or that is interested in yoga, mediation it is really good
-green tea
-walked the dog
-rode bike for 15 mins 4 km!
-time for me!

HUGS to you all!!! without you guys I wouldn't be as determined!!!

Mixed bag Monday

Monday, September 26, 2011

Well I have't gotten all my water in yet and is 9pm. darn we wern't home and waas busy so didn't even think of it.
Otherwise a pretty good day. Not a lot going on, we went to dd and I helped her a bit and hubby put in new programable thermostats and her hubby scraped and painted trim on outside of windows.
Before we left we heard all this noise, we live beside a path that goes from high school and community center then a few blocks on other side of path another rival high school. Gang of kids were walking back to school being silly so we thought 2 guys acting silly pretending to fight and we could tell was fun. Suddenly this one girl yelled at another theyg rabbed each others hair, then the one just YANKED her hard and she fell in teh middle of the road, that other started kicking her hard, all over head, belly everywhere, the kids about 15 or so were all watching and had their phones out, hubby grabbed our phone called 911 then she stopped and yelled went over kicked her again and then walked back the way she came, i went ot the back door and didn't see her so she had to be on the side of the path. the other girl got up, some walked with her, and then the one that started it started to follow, cops called later and said they didnt catch anyone or see anything, hubby was goign to go out and stop it and then I said call first cos there are about 20 kids and they will gang on you and then the girl got up and started walking, She will be some sore tomorrow. Hubby said if the cops hadn't kept talking to him and they said don't go out. we are near by.
hubby was bullied as a kid and HATES it so he was ready to go out and do them all in. buggers

I sorted my posters out and put some up on the walls in the basement to make it more motivating to exercise. also going to sort out the ones from magazines and put them up on the bulletin board for easy access and to remember I have them.
Okay now to go get the clothes out of the dryer.
OH!! how did I forget.
I got a call today. was from one of my clients, she has been bugging work for my phone number, they can't give it to her. so one of my friends was at her place and called me to see if she could have my number. So my little lady called to day so glad to know I was okay enough. I was touched she is a cute little irish never married but bet she could cause enough rucus such a character.

So what did I do today to make my tomorrow better?
-not enough to feel great about my day
- did have salad with chicken for lunch
- not enough water
-didn't walk dog
- did help dd with some of her housework
- reading the healing cirlce what an awesome book
-talked with hubby about breast cancer ect. cos someone on ellen had it and we were talking about me and march
- made a plan for tomorrow - yoga - water - good food-time with dad

okay sparkers gotta get a stronger spark going again!!
hugs all

    It's frightening how bullying has escalated in schools these days; over here some schools "scan" the pupils daily for knives.

Too true to be careful when helping, a crowd of youngsters can turn ugly...isn't sad to say that. At one time you thought nothing of going to someone's aid emoticon

Nice of that lady to check on you Cinders

Have a good Tuesday emoticon

    Nice that your client made the effort to track you down & see how you're doing! Since you've been really working hard to create a positive attitude in your life, I thought you'd be as inspired as I was by my sparkfriends blog:
