Alot has changed

Monday, November 17, 2014

Well to say an update is needed is an understatement. All of the major changed started in September when I woke upon a Thursday and my foot was hurting really bad, Hubby made me go to get it checked cause I could not walk on it .... I ended up in the hospital for 5 days... I had gout and was in stage 4 kidney failure.... what a shock .... i knew I had been in stage 2 , was just told that the Tuesday before . The kidney specialist took me off all of my heart medication be cause mt blood pressure would not stay up and was causing more problems. Once I have been off all them meds for my heart , I have been feeling a good bit better, I still have bad days, and I will never be off the gout meds, but I feel better.
Two weeks ago I called a portrait studio ask if they were hiring for seasonal work, they were I got hired on the phone , and have been working for two weeks. I like it , wish I was shooting portraits but right now I am doing the retail sales , but I still have my personal clients to shoot for. And with Christmas coming , I have had several calls for Christmas shoots.
I have lost a few pounds since I was in the hospital , and I am working on it hard, tracking my food most days , and back to wearing my fitbit.
I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm .. have a great day

    Take care lady. Thank God your husband told you to go to the doctor. Seems like we all need someone to tell us that we need to go cuz most times we will not go until we just cant take it anymore. I will be praying for you. emoticon

    Sorry to hear about your gout flair up. My son had a flare up last year after Thanksgiving. He enjoyed my turkey too much. He learned he can't overdo it on certain kinds of foods. He could barely walk for 2 weeks. Didn't have insurance at the time, so he had to suffer through it.

School started !

Friday, August 22, 2014

So 2 of my kids are in school , my oldest graduated last year. He is looking for a job and hopefully he will be heading to take classes soon also.
I have been fighting off chest pain for 5 days but I made my self , with the help of my hubby go to the gym today and did 35 minutes on the treadmill ... I think it is my favorite go to now. Today I read my kindle app while walking, it was great.
My sugars have been ok , bouncing a little some days , but it is to be expected , with not eating on a schedule.
My hubby and I are looking into doing the Diabetes walk in Pittsburgh , this year , we think his work has a team and he will be getting the info soon.

Been lost awhile

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

I am still here .... sorta lost for awhile .. I have been lurking here and there but not tracking. There has been so much going on and so many bad days that I have just been in hiding per say.
The CHF is back and this time I have the added bonus of my O2 dropping so now I am on oxygen when I am up and about. My sugars were up and down for awhile and we switched to Victoza and it seems to be doing well now.
I have not been to the gym in a month or so, and I am missing it, but I do not know if I can walk the tread mill with my O2 on and I am afraid to ask.
I need to get back on track , and eating wise I am doing really good . The Victoza helps you with not wanting to eat as much , and I have seen a little weight loss from it, just not much , my Dr says give it time.
Boe has oral surgery yesterday afternoon and he is pretty swollen today, and in a fair amount of pain.
Dani is doing well and ready to go back to school and basketball.
Gabe on the other hand is still dealing with some things , however he is starting the tech school next month for Carpentry and he is leaving for Chicago for two weeks on Sunday.

pushing hard

Monday, March 10, 2014

Well day two at the gym this week was push and ease up and back again. 35 minutes on the treadmill , 12 on the bike, and 5 on the hip extender. My body is a little stiff but I feel great...I hope hubby can stick with me with this , I am loving it, we did the treadmills together, each with our own mp3 players and music but still together.
stir fry will be dinner tonight and a nice hot soak later with a good book , have a great night, keep sparking... I am pushing for my April 25th goal to hit 240 before the ralley
