I may have lost my Spark Tracker, but not my spark! I'm happy that I exercised very well today without it!



I'm Going to Keep Pushing, No Matter What!

Thursday, May 08, 2014

I have to see yet another hand doctor! But so what? I will, whatever it takes! My treadmill still needs to be assembled, but I still want to do more exercise. I bought a really low cost mini-stepper, so I'll use that in the meantime! I'm going to keep pushing, no matter what, in healthy living and in life! I don't think I've ever been so focused! I think it's because I'm a Sparker! Thanks, Spark Friends!
Unfortunately, my hands are hurting right now, so I'll stop here.

Well, maybe not finally, but I'm advocating for myself!

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

The orthopedist was a very sympathetic man, my exam went well, and it was informative. However, he wanted to refer me to yet another specialist. He was certain that I could get in to see this next doctor quickly. However, I can't because of insurance red tape and mumble-jumble. I was about to concede to this and wait more weeks. emoticon

Then, I came to myself (the pain this morning woke me up in more than one way!) emoticon and called the original orthopedist and said, "Look, I need treatment now, not when the bureaucracy can resolve this!" He quickly agreed to start treatment tomorrow morning!

This just goes to show you, you have to advocate for yourself!

    Yes, I have a friend that is in stage 4 cancer, and she has been doing chemotherapy, which I drive her to every three weeks. She called this morning and said that she is going to talk to the dr. and tell him of all the natural things she is doing, and wants to spread the treatments out to every six weeks. She is getting her nerve up to advocate with him about it. It's her body and her decision, though.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and giving encouragement. My inner demons do need to take it easy on me!! I am doing my best, and I feel I will get there if I don't give in. Sweet tooth for me is a hard one. But tracking my food brought me to the realization of what I was doing. Thank God for Spark people. Happy Sparking!!

I am so happy that I get to see the orthopedic hand surgeon tomorrow! He is supposed to be one of the top in the country. I have been waiting for months, and the time is finally here! I hope that he can help me. I know that I should show him all of the meds that the other Drs. have prescribed for me, and copies of my x-rays and MRIs. Now I have to write down all of my questions, such as; Why does my thumb just "give out" at times? and Why do they hurt so much at night? Who would have ever thought that I would be so anxious to see a doctor?
