73/365 Playing Catch Up

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I am playing catch up with sparkpeople @ this point.
I do think those of u who reached out 2 me while I was MIA

Things have been very difficult 4 me but I m working on moving 4ward 2 my life. My 4th granddaughter was born on June 21st; I really want 2 watch her grow up. I dont want 2 b like my father who is 69 and cant take care of himself. He is in a diaper full time & the only thing he seems able 2 do is 2 feed himself.

LaLa (my 8 yr old granddaughter I m raising) helps me 2 b focuse on being healthy. Presently her 6 yr old sister is visiting us & my daughter (their mother) & the new baby will b visiting the beginning of August; I cant wait.

    Good job looking after your granddaughter. It is almost impossible to keep up with kids if you don't say healthy. emoticon

    Haven't seen much of you lately, I guess this it explains it. It sounds like you have some real structural issues to account for pain. My reports didn't show definite impingement.

Glad you are finally getting medical care you need.

70/365 Dr's Visit

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I went for my follow up drs visit
I have to go to physical therapy get an MRI & c a neurologist or neuro surgeon (I 4get which one 1st).
I have deteriorated and deteriorating cervical disk.
Sooooo I have to make some changes to my workout.

I cant lift anything over 5 lbs; I m 2 continue with no jumping motions and I have 2 watch strenuous activities (not sure about that one) I did ask about the classes (body combat- yoga - zumba n start body pump) and at this time I can continue as long as I stop if I feel pain; I will have to do body pump with just the bar.
It will take at least a mth for the appts to be set up.

    Take care of yourself! Maybe ask if that is something that can be fixed with Vertiboplasty. It's where they put a cement stuff in your back in the affected areas. It's minimally invasive and is an outpatient surgery. My dad had it done on a compression fracture in his back not long ago and it worked wonders. I don't know for sure if it's something they can do for you, but it sure wouldn't hurt to ask. :) Love you! HUGS!

    It is a lot to take in, but do follow the docs orders. I am surprised and I am sure you are happy he let you keep some activities. Don't get too discouraged. Substitute somethings he told you to stop with more Zumba or walking. I know it is just one more thing piled on this plate your juggling along with all the others you have in the air too.

It sounds as if there maybe something to fix that causes you pain which could be good.

Hugs to you, keep your faith.

69/365 Trying

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I been sitting here thinking.

I realized a few things:
- - I dont like being around people again.
- - I dont spark or facebook as much as I use to.
- - I havent crocheted in a few weeks
- - I havent been reading again
- - I havent been sitting outside
- - I just dotn want to do anything

The good thing is that I have realized it. I have an appt to c my pcp on Thurs and tomorrow I find out when they will do my mental eval 4 a program I looking into. I been meditating some and spending time in prayer

I, too, have one and two in common as well and it is only me. You do so much for so many and I think YOU are lost in it all. I hope your PCP can get you where you want to be.

Just know we may not be physically there for you but there are many shoulders here even just willing to listen. And if listening is all you want, not opinion or suggestions, just preface your comments with that and then we can just acknowledge we have read what you needed to get off your chest.

Do take care!
