Day 239

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Ok, I am lousy at keeping up my blog...LOL! I am the very first one to admit it, but I figure no one wants to hear about my boring and always the same life. I do not get out to pretty places to walk. I do not get to go on any vacations as the old man does not travel well with his dementia. New situations are too un-nerving to him and he gets way to anxious and irritable.
I am still having my stomach problems. You would think that eating only one meal a day to avoid the pain I should loose weight...it is not working that way!!! I do not understand it. emoticon
But I am still here and logging everyday and all so I will just keep on Sparkling in my own faint small sputtering way! emoticon

    Your life sounds so much like mine. I go to doctor appointments, the gym and grocery shopping and that's pretty much it. No cruises, or fun travel trips for me. I'm a "home body"

I want to take this time to thank you for being one of the most supportive people on Spark. You are SO thoughtful to acknowledge other members activity feeds, status and blog entries.

Day 194 sorry I have been awol

Saturday, July 31, 2010

I have been here but not Here! Does that make any sense? I have been tracking and such but I have been having a lot of problems with my health and have not really had too much to say as I did not know what was going on. I hate waiting for doctors and test results, but i also hate getting the results when they are not good. I wanted to know what was wrong but all I was getting was what was not wrong. Well, I finally got a result and it looks like I will probably be having some bowel surgery done. I have an appointment on the 11th of August with a surgeon. It seems I have a mass or blockage in my upper small bowel and it cannot be reach by endoscopy or by colonoscopy so they will have to go in to determine exactly what is there. The doc says it could be just scar tissue but she does not think it is as I have had no surgery in that area. So, I just get to wait some more to find out as my imagination thinks up all kinds of scary stuff it could be!!

    Hi Nancy, I can imagine that it's hard to be enthusiastic about Sparking, when you're concerned about your health at the moment. Let's pray that the surgeons can remove the blockage and find that it's nothing to worry about.

Day 166 Happy Independance Day!!

Saturday, July 03, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I want to give thanks and offer prayers and blessings to all those who have contributed to the freedoms we have here int the good old US of A! I am so grateful to have been lucky enough to have been born here rather than some where I could not be free to practice my faith and to do what I want to do. I am so stubborn that I probably would have been shot or something if I had been born elsewhere!!
I praise my Heavenly Father each day for the freedoms and the life He gave to me and to my family. I give thanks that there are those who would follow Christ's example and offer up their lives to save these freedoms for me and to try to give them to others in this world.
I want to wish you all a safe and sane 4th of July, but please take a few minutes to reflect on what it is that we are celebrating. If you see someone in uniform take the time to say "Thank You". You will help to make their day and it will make you feel pretty good too!

    Amen and Amen! My hubby almost didn't make it home from Vietnam and many of my friends gave their lives there. I so appreciate our military and what they do to keep us safe. God bless the USA and those who have given their lives to defend it! emoticon Thanks for the reminder........... emoticonLainie

Day 129

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Went to the dentist yesterday morning and had a bunch of stuff done in my poor little mouth. I had 3/4 of my mouth numbed. There were only a few small things in each section so I just got it all done at once. I hate to go to the dentist so I try to get it all done as fast as possible. I also had one broken tooth that needed to be built up and that took most of the time of the 3 hour appointment. I have Sjogren's Syndrome which causes the moisture producing glands to stop working. I have very dry eyes, mouth and skin because of this. When there is not enough saliva in your mouth to rinse the bacteria off the teeth they begin to rot at the bases and then they break off. I have only a bit over half of my teeth left but we are trying to save what I do have. Now that the work is done I am scheduled to get some partial plates made so I can chew better. Right now I have to chew with my front teeth as I only have molars on the upper left side.
emoticon emoticon
PS...I went to my Primary Care Doc yesterday afternoon and he actually said he was proud of me because of the weight I have lost!!! I had not seen him for a while so it was 10 pounds down on my chart!

    I hate going to the dentist as much as you and even though my dentist is young and handsome.
Yes Biotene works great my dentist prescribed it for my Hubby when he got his partial. Have a good weekend and remember sugar free jello is great. emoticon on the pounds lost. Your doing a great job. Sandy

Have you tried Biotene for dry mouth? I've seen it in a toothpaste & mouthwash. Supposedly there's also a gum & mouth spray (haven't seen those). I have chronic dry mouth, plus Sleep Apnea (the air pressure from the cpap machine dries out one's mouth). When I told my dental hygenist I have SA, she suggested the Biotene. It's a bit pricey, but I've seen it at Walmart (cheapest, I think. unless it's on a good sale elsewhere), Walgreen's & Albertsons. I'e started seeing it advertised on TV, so it might be available at other stores, I just haven't looked/ seen it.

Hope you have a great day & a blessed & safe Memorial Day weekend!
