Bill just got the new chair together. It is much bigger and steadier than the one we had in the back room. I will probably still limit my time when Bill isn't home.
I had a heart sonogram today.Will find out if heart has gotten worse next week. I am sure it is just because ICD has gone off twice and I passed out from no pulse.
Have done better with eating today.I have been so out of control.Altho 90% or more of my eating is healthy calories are calories. I am trying to get my head straight. I have been letting too many things bother me.
Looks like a lot of new programs will be coming on TV. Yes I am a big TV watcher. emoticon Watching little people Big world now.
I missed the start of tennis match but just found it.MMM Messes up my other stuff.Ok Changed my taping around.
Please say a little prayer for my friend Carol (RURAL3) who has had 3 deaths in her family. First her husband's Dad,then his Mother and today Carol's sister. A lot for one family.
And also remember sweet Pat who is under Hospice care.
Ok Nothing new. Hope you had a good day

    Did Bill install the seatbelt? emoticon

I ate hospital food for lunch & dinner today. Somebody chose for me and I had fish for dinner. I don't eat fish but I ate 1/2 of it because I don't have any snacks to eat.

I posted pictures of my new little one to Facebook.

    I thought I would check in on you and was shocked to hear about you passing out twice. No good. I really hope it wasn't because of your heart (crossing my fingers).

Glad to hear you are keeping the calories somewhat in check! I am doing ok other than getting in my water intake for each day.

Sorry to hear about your friend that is really alot for one family.

    I did not realize you have had two episodes. So glad you got the sonogram today. Do keep us posted and take time to be extra good to yourself right now.

Sorry to hear about your Friend's family. That would be difficult. I will be praying that God supplies all of her needs during this most difficult time.

    I have been out of the loop, I read some of your earlier blogs today. Landon is getting so big and is cute as ever. Hope things are getting better for you...hope you are getting the rest you need. My brothers have c pacs and it is very hard for them to adjust to it. They say that it keeps them up at night sometimes. Hope you get results soon...wow, passing out from no pulse! They should get you the results with no waiting! Take care and I hope things change to the better for you. emoticon emoticon

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I wish I had known the tennis match was going to be delayed for a long time.I could have laid down when Bill did and got a nap Too late now.
I did do some of driving.Since Bill was right there I thought it was safe.
We went to Staples and I found a chair for computer room.I think if I do pass out again it will keep me from hitting floor. I have only gone back there when I needed something on that computer and only when Bill is home. Bill will pick it up tomorrow in his van.
Then on to grocery store. I have most of stuff put up.Grapes are off the stem and washed.Once they dry I will put them back in bag.The kale is only thing left that I need to take care of. I will get all the big stems out and then rebag it. I found a new fruit to try.It is an apple pear..Skin looks like that of a pear and it is shaped like an apple.I have found that I do like the New Zealand apples. But I got a grapefruit from South Africa last week that I threw away as it was dry and tasteless.I have been noticing more fruits etc from other countries lately.Some good some not..I also got some fresh brussel sprouts.I don't think I have ever cooked fresh ones before. And instead of my usual bag of fresh green beans I got some pole beans.
Then when I got home I saw I forgot my celery and romaine lettuce. But my grand daughter made a special trip to get it for me, It is nice sometimes when they get old enough to drive.Brianna and her Mom are always trying to help us.
Ok Gotta go start supper. Hope you all had a good weekend.

    An apple pear, now that does sound delicious. Let us know how you like it :)

I had to create a new spark page if you are wondering.

Happy to hear that you were able to get a new chair for the computer room, and sounds like you might feel safer. Take care of yourself....

    Good find on the office chair, I just wish mine was not so comfortable, I could fall asleep in mine.
After you have fresh brussel sprouts you will never go back to frozen again. When you prepare them peel the out side leafs off just one layer and cut the stem portion just a tiny slice to get rid of the dry part then take your knife and cut a small X in the bottom and steam in the microwave or you could roast them with our other veggies. Can you tell how much I love these little guys. Have a wonderful rest of Sunday.

    An apple/pear sounds yummy. I really liked the grapples I found but they don't sell them anymore at my store.

That was sweet of Brianna to stop by the store for you. I make a list before shopping and I still forget things sometimes.

Once you get your new office chair maybe Bill can install a seatbelt for you. You'll be safe then! emoticon

Watching Great Tennis Today

Saturday, September 11, 2010

There is some great tennis on today.Nadal had no trouble winning.But the Federer and Djokovic game is one of the best I have seen in a long time. So many shots returned that were awesome.Djokovic may very well beat Federer.
Bill is still working in bathroom. I feel bad for him but he is glad to get it done. Got rid of all the stuff underneath that has been accumulating.
Had a problem with my c-pap last night.I am sleeping so much better but when I got up to potty last night I had a nose bleed.Will increase the humidity tonight.
Have not felt good today.Just extra tired. Did not even go to lunch to see Landon. Bill did take a couple of good pics.


And Bill completed the sink and he did good


.Djokovic did win.Best match in a long time. I am about tennised out.
I just looked out at the big orchid.Looking better every day.Will have a update picture in a few days.

Have not worked on my daily goals today.Mostly just resting. Am trying to keep mouth shut and not eat so much
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.It is still hot here in Florida.

    Super Saturday Tennis! It was good wasn't it? Well, the part where Federer lost wasn't good, but Djokovic played his best tennis yesterday. Very happy about Clijsters win last night.

Hopefully the rain will stop soon, and we can watch the men's final!

Have a good one!

  Just love Landon's curls!!!!
Sure hope Nadal wins today, just because he has never won the US Open. Haven't we been so lucky to see some awesome tennis these last few weeks? Wembeldon and the US Open are so much fun.
Glad for Bill that his project is over for now, somehow there is always another project around each corner.
So happy you are doing well with the C-Pap you should notice the feeling better theme once you are getting enough sleep, the humidity increase will help with the nasal dryness. Then we will get going on the healthy eating and exercise program, cooler weather is coming well maybe the 80's instead of the 90's.
Have a wonderful week.

    Perhaps try some saline in your nose during the day to add to the moisture in your nose. My daughter gets alot of nosebleeds and this helps. She doesn't have c-pap but I am sure either way it must have something to your nose getting dried out. Good idea upping the moisture on c-pap too. emoticon

Friday

Friday, September 10, 2010

It has been a very boring day for me. Except for the tennis match I watched.Kim Clijuster beat Venus Williams and it was a good match.
My poor hubby has had a not so good afternoon. I mentioned that it would be nice to get a new bathroom facet. He had a new sink etc that he never had had time to put in.Well so far nothing has gone good for him.The new set will not work at all after he spent a few hours trying to make it work.Soooooo he went and got another and ********** it won't work either.So he is back at Home Depot.Needless to say I am being very quiet as i know he has no patience left. Poor baby
As far as my weight loss goes I am doing awful. I guess I am going to have to sew my mouth shut.
Well Hope you have had a good day

    When it come to plumbing, we hire a professional. It just doesn't pay to try to do it ourselves. Every time we did, it led to many frustrations and we ended up hiring a plumber anyway.

    What is it with men? Whenever there is home stuff to do, mine cusses like the emoticonI'm walking on egg shells the entire project. And then as soon as it's completed....voila! They're back to their normal status. emoticonGo figure.

But with that being said, and from what I've seen and read.....Bill seems like a pretty easy going guy. So, I think we should allow him this 'moment'.

Sorry, to hear you're not making any headway with the weight loss. Strive for one good day, every other day. Maybe that will help you get back into a rhythm.
It's tough. I could so easily go of course, but I can't and won't.

    Oh, that sounds so much like my house. And it usually happens on a holiday or Sunday, when nothing is open! I have told Ted to just get someone to do it, but he always wants to do it himself!! Don't worry about your eating until you get to feeling better! You don't need any more stress! You will get it together, when you feel better! Just try to eat right and don't worry about calorie count.
Our prayers continue to go up on your and Bill's behalf...

    Poor Bill. Bless his heart. He'll get it fixed. I love my Jason to death but he's not a good fixer upper. He calls his dad for help all the time. I'm lucky he can unscrew the tube under the sink and unclog my hair from it. LOL

There are many days I'd like to sew my mouth shut too. I'm not eating large quantities but I'm not making smart healthy choices right now. I've eaten peanut butter & jelly at least 8 times for lunch the last 2 weeks. I've been eating pop tarts for breakfast. So much sounds nasty to me right now. I hope to be back to normal soon. You'll get over this hump!!

How's the weather by you? It went from being in the 90's here to the 60's. It feels so good but the mosquitoes are so bad I won't sit outside and enjoy. Alex has a ball game tomorrow morning but we're supposed to get hit with rain, so we'll see if they play. If it's drizzling, they'll play in the rain.

Blogging Early

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I just wasn't up to blogging yesterday
We went to heart doc yesterday. Bill is doing good and doesn't go back for 4 months. I get to go back in 2 weeks. He said I can drive but I will do it only if Bill is with me. And if I have no other way. I do drive much anyway as I stay close to home. I was more upset with fact that I couldn't.My life is so limited now it was just too much. I have always said that I would not keep driving if I couldn't do it safely.But I wanted to make that decision. I have so little control over so many things.
My ekg shows I am doing ok with new med. But it is very likely I could pass out again. No way of knowing. When my ICD shocked me I basically had no pulse. So as long as it keeps me going i will just hope if I do pass out I don't hurt myself.We are getting a different chair for back room. Then I can go back there more.
I am doing better with c-pap every night. I will never like it tho.
My spark friend Pat /BORROWEDANGEL1 is not doing well. She is home with hospice and spends most of her time sleeping. Doesn't sound good. Life really stinks and is so unfair sometimes.
I am going to start back on my daily goals. There should be no problems with exercise as I don't do anything stressful there. It is mostly stretching and strengthening.
Ok I have so many emails to get to.Plus need to check my pork loin roast I have in oven.
Angel is on her way to do some cleaning.House is getting very cluttered. By me.I put a card table up to use this computer and seems to have filled the table with my junk. Bill is calling it my new office.
Ok I am doing ok.Hope you are having a good day

    If you may pass out at any time you are smart to let Bill do the driving. When A started a new medicine for restless legs one of the side effects listed was that you might pass out anywhere, even while driving. That was printed with the side effects, and I had to drive her everywhere for the first few weeks she took that med.

It's sad that you are confined, but maybe it will get better. I'll keep hoping for a magical improvement for you.

    Ohhhh, my darling Ms. Eleni...you know you are in my heart and prayers daily! You are so right life totally stinks sometimes. I've been reading and reading about the afterlife, I've always been totally fascinated with it from the time I was a very young child and every thing I've ever read out of the hundreds of books...all say the same thing. The spirit NEVER dies...our soul's are made of pure energy and energy never dies it just transforms itself. If the physcial body slips away the spirit continues right on. Josh's book is all about him helping from the other side...as he calls it the 'flip side.' It is full of his funny sarcastic sense of humor and his often dim look on this earth plane and some of the people on it.

I WANT you to read this book when it's complete and I KNOW you will. Your input is so very valuable to me...so keep yourself healthy okay, okay?

Many, many hugs...I'm so honored to know you, you are a wise, wise soul and you have SO much to teach others!

Be safe, don't be frustrated, you always have all of us right beside you and we'll ALWAYS be connected, ain't modern technology GREAT?? emoticon emoticon emoticon
