Wendle is doing well healing. He has enjoyed the couch all day long.

I'm not able to breathe out my nose now, the sore throat/ear is all gone. But I still can't exercise without causing my ms to start up and feeling like I'm going to be sick and/or pass out. fun times! Hopefully it won't hurt my weight loss. I hope to sleep in tomorrow.

  Oh poor Wendle!! I am so glad his surgery went well. I hope he recovers quickly. I know how stressful that can be....and with you being sick, too. Hope you both have a nice restful, healing weekend and are back up to normal soon.

Take care!!

Wendle's Surgery Went Well

Friday, March 11, 2011

Wendle has a 3 inch incision mark on the side of his wiener. The vet was able to take out all the tissue that needed to be sent to the lab. The growth was not attached to any organs, and was very close to the main blood vessel, which the vet didn't like, but was able to avoid it altogether. :) We find out next week what the growth is and if we need to give him any additional meds.

My day on the other hand was crazy. I thought I got paid today, so I did a little retail therapy at the grocery store. I love Chase bank - they texted me and told me my balance was below my $50 limit. Oops. lol. I transferred over money and fixed that, but feel very duh for doing that. I also spent more than I should have, but did get good food for meals, fruits & veggies & stuff. I got home at 10:30 am and cleaned until 2:30 non-stop. Forgot lunch and everything. So I only ate a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch. And I sweat my butt off cleaning! I couldn't find the mop so I wiped down the kitchen floor on my hands & knees, making sure to keep my core engaged. LOL. At that point my eye twitch came back (dam MS & cold). So I had to stop. I'm only doing laundry the rest of the night. Dinner is in the crock pot and there aren't any dishes to wash :) I need a nap. I have to go pick up the hubby in 2 hours. I'll go to bed early tonight. I"m so happy Wendle's back home.

Fightin The Cold & Winning & THANK YOU SPARK FRIENDS!

Thursday, March 10, 2011

I started taking zicam yesterday, also ate an orange, stayed in my calorie & other nutritional range, and only did very light exercise. It seemed to help. My throat isn't as sore today, my ear pain and head pain is gone. I still feel a little stuffy in the ear though. I also did my neilmed sinus rinse this morning. I'm stocked up for the day - apple, orange, banana, carrots, extra water, homemade super-low-sodium chicken noodle soup. :) The morning may have started out bad, but I'm not letting that get in my way either. Positive attitude will get me through this. I'm not giving in to negativity at all!

Thank you Spark Friends for helping me get through one of the hardest two weeks in a row in a very long time!! I really appreciate all the support and friendship on here. It helps so much!! I hope I can be as good of a friend to you as you are to me!!!

Gettin There!

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Well, according to this week's weigh-in I lost a pound. I have to measure some inches, because I know i went down in that category. Yesterday's workout was really hard on me, and Sunday's was difficult too. I figured out why. I think I'm getting sick. My throat started hurting yesterday and this morning my right ear is killing me. I have the head pain/pressure on the same side of my head. So yup, Zicam here I come! I don't have time to be sick! lol I'll try to take it easy the rest of the week with lowering the intensity of working out and stress.

So my daughter's doing better, the washer is behaving - I think it accepted my bribe. The hot water is still hot. Just waiting for Wendle's surgery on Friday and I'm going to lie around the house with him all weekend long!

I'm really trying to keep from getting depressed. I'm having a very hard time with it though. It's driving me insane. I even made a course of action (or non-action) for the different issues that are all happening at once. Part of me wants to pig out - and I'm not going to give into that. Another part of me wants to curl up in bed and just ignore everyone/everything. I haven't done that either. I'm going to push myself and exercise on my lunch break, which should clear my head to get through this afternoon's work. I'm going to make myself go through the motions until things start going right. So, work, clean, cook, exercise, sleep, work.. and some how try to parent my teenager who now thinks I don't understand, wouldn't understand and is not listening. I see the train wreck happening, but she can't.

    We are here for U! Sometimes it's easier to talk things out with someone you don't know...I just had a discussion this morning with my husband about what I need to do, should do, should not be doing. It wasn't a bad discussion but I really don't want to have to listen...even thou I should 'cause it concerns my health.. I take anti-depressors for the rest (of life ;). As far as the teen thing, well I have 2; a 16 yr old boy, who's in the throws of teen hormones..at least he talks to dad about the S.E.X thing. And a daughter who will be 15 in May..thank god I only have one girl! She has a great boy friend and they are currently making plans for their futures together...Ugh. What's a mom supposed to do!!!! They are so young, I don't want them to get tied down so soon!

Keep strong for us girl and we will be right there with you emoticon

    Have you done the quiz about depression that was in today's weekly spark? http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource
f=eWS03-08-11 May help you to fight off the black dog, just simple facts about depression which help gain some perspective on that. You're doing so great, Kaz, and regardless of the usual teenage girl vs mother misunderstandings you are providing such an awesome example to your daughter right now of a strong woman getting her life in order. Keep trying to empathise with her and just know that one day she is going to look back and see that, along with your lifestyle changes and realise how blessed you both are to have eachother in your lives. After you've had a chance to rest I reckon if you go over those action plans you wrote you will gain some new perspective and feel much better about what's been happening.

Good on ya for reaching out, we're here for you! emoticon

    I can't give you any parenting advice; but, I can tell you that you're chosing a positive approach. You can handle this, just take one step at a time.
