Darn,Drat and Oh Nooo

Friday, April 27, 2012

As some of you might know I have had a neck ache for some time,. emoticon
I finally went to my Dr. he sent me for x-rays ,he wanted me to have an MRI
(being claustrofobic I declined) emoticon
so off i go to have my "pictures" taken.
Tuesday I went to hear the news ,not good c 2,3,4,5,6 and 7 has some damage on them and I have to stop running.
I had just started back running 6 weeks ago, and loving it. emoticon
and on top of that I still have to have an MRI to make sure the spinal cord is ok,and that I do not have any nerve damage.Arrrgh
I am NOT a happy duck today.
So Now I have vented enough, it is off to gym for an elliptical workout ,wich the Dr. said was OK.

i am sorry to hear about your neck; but i must share something with you. My sister use to jog years ago, and started to have pains in her legs, and neck.. thus the doc told her it was due to jogging, and she had to stop.

Doc told her , that jogging is not a natural state for the human body, but walking is , so if she wanted to work out- then he wanted her to speed walk. Karen did not go for that, so she just quit.. i love the ellip. , and let me tell u .. it can get harder ... once u increase that number ! ha

Do not feel bad.. i am thinking karen"s doc was ahead of his time, and telling folks not to jog, it jars the body too much..

    had an MRI... didn't feel that close, but then I am not claustrophobic. Suggest the meditation idea or see if they will play music that you like or think of it as forced relaxation.
Sorry to hear- that's a lot of damage area-- was it from previous injury??
Be glad you can still do elliptical. When my back issues came to a head, I couldn't even take walks for 5 months.

You know, while that is bad news....kind of, it is still good news. You are relatively healthy, no tumors, nerve issues or other spine problems. You are thin and look great. So I say, good news!

    I am NOT claustrophobic, BUT I had an MRI about three months ago,, cervical.. it took about 45 minutes,,,
If you are into meditation, it works like a charm. They give you a buzzer(they call it a panic button) to hold,, the table slides into the tube,, it is very close,BUT I never opened my eyes until the end when they started sliding me out. I never saw how close I was,,, I meditated,, I was on the beach at St. Thomas, reliving my vacation years ago. I could hear the waves, eh birds, smell the flowers,etc..

I am glad that I did not have my eyes opened before I lid in there, it really did help it go by faster and easier. When I did open them I was happy they were sliding me out. You can do this..

    I was just thinking that I will knit a "lusekofta" as my next project but you are probably right - not in front of the teve...and I am still not finished with the "pippitröja" I promised daughter for christmas... half of the sleeves left! Your sweater is reaaly beautiful!

    Beautiful sweater. I do counted cross stitch and am currently working on a Christmas wall hanging with snowmen. I'm loving it. I may make another one for someone else when I'm done, which will be months from now I'm sure. But every minute my hands are pulling that needle in and out of the cloth is a minute they are not stuffing something in my mouth!

    How beautiful! I've never seen deer out there. Are there still any bison left, or have they rounded them ALL up?

it has been my experience, when people move south, they always think they can handle the heat.. then all spring , summer,& fall they complain about the heat. emoticon

Bargain table

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

The books People write ,,,and read? emoticon
Went to Barnes&Nobles today, needed a book for dummies (haha)
My daughter gave me her Mac Powerbook so I needed Mac For Dummies
to really get a hang of things. emoticonFound Mac for seniors (looks easy to grasp)
They had a bargain table with 'for dummies' books (not the one I wanted)
but now we have "Sex for Dummies" w/ Dr.Ruth? emoticon
can we not figure that outourselves we should not attempt it.Maybe that explains why it was 20% off emoticon
What do you guys think????
There was a few other ones that caught my eye too.

    Gosh, Dummies have a book for just about everything. Someone could do a stand up routine around this concept. What if there was a store that only carried Dummie how to's ? That would be hilarious.

Thanks for sharing and have fun with the Mac :)

    That's funny! I had a book on how to speak Italian for Dummies...but I'm giving it away...I'd rather learn Spanish. I wanted to learn Italian because I thought I was going to Italy to visit my cousin in the Navy but now that isn't going to happen, so back to Spanish lessons!
