Last thoughts before surgery

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Hi! It's Carla. Mom asked me to please write her blog to thank everyone for the well wishes for her surgery on Thursday. She was trying to write each person back, but had to stop because her arm just hurt too much so she is done with the computer for a while.

She will be in the hospital for 1-2 nights after her surgery, so likely home Saturday, but the recovery period is 12 weeks. She has no idea how long it will be until she will be able to use it enough to comfortably get back on her laptop to type.

She is so sorry she is unable to finish out the pound a thon challenge and definitely won't be ready for the next challenge, but she will be back as soon as she is able.

She asked please that no one send her any page comments, etc while she is gone because it will be too hard to try to clean out her email inbox when she returns.

Thanks again to everyone for all your well wishes. They mean a lot to her :-)

TODAY

Monday, August 30, 2010

I don't have a lot to say for today. We left early this morning and went to the produce market. A neighbor/good friend went with us. After leaving there, we went to lunch and had a nice lunch. Then hubby and I went and he had an MRI of his cervical spine. Results are in and he has a bulging disc. His symptoms have subsided since first going to the doctor, but if he gets symptoms again we will have to return. Sometimes the disc are really troublesome and sometimes they don't give you much trouble for a while. Hopefully, since he is pretty much okay now, he won't be bothered for a while or for a long time. My surgery is Thursday and my shoulder hurts pretty much of the time. I didn't even walk today and I really dislike not walking because I know it gives good results. I am going to try to get my walk in tomorrow if I am not hurting too bad.

    It really is hard to get yourself motivated when something hurts or you just don't feel well. But you can get back in the swing. Find something you can do that doesn't use those sore areas. You may find something new that you really like.

    I sure hope he doesn't need surgery on his neck now when he's just recovered from his back surgery!

I hope your shoulder/arm feel better soon. At least after the initial surgical recovery, I really hope you find a lot of improvement!

My little friend again

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I got a call yesterday from one of my neighbor's that I sit for. She had a chance to go to a concert if I could sit for the little girl who will be 2 in October. I quickly said yes, because I love kids and watching them. I got here this evening and Mom went out and my little friend played and sang and danced. She is talking so much now and I was surprised when I came in and she ask me "where's Larry". I couldn't believe she would remember his name and ask me where he is. She can count and she sang Twinkle Twinkle little Star to me. I have been sitting with her since she was 3 weeks old and I just love her to pieces. We rolled around on the floor and had to "go to sleep" with her babies while on the floor. Well, that only lasted about 5 seconds and it was "time to get up". I made her dinner and she ate all of that and we played some more. She went to bed at 8:15 and straight to sleep. I am really tired and am wondering if I am going to stay awake. I have about 2 1/2 or 3 hrs. left to sit. I got here at 5:00 p.m. and it is now 9:30........z...z...z...z....z....

    Little ones are fun, and they keep things simple. I love hanging out with my nieces and nephews because of that...not to mention, they say the FUNNIEST things.

Love the Garfield background, btw.

    I just checked my pedometer and it has 14,775 steps and I didn't do a whole lot before I came here today except my walk this morning (8K+ steps). Get lots of steps with toddlers. I usually have between 11,000 and 14,000K.

    You may be tired, I know I would be, but it sounds like you had a lot of fun with this darling little girl. It was so kind of you to sit with her and give her a fun evening. emoticon

Something Different

Friday, August 27, 2010

Hubby and I both got up at 4:30 this morning. I asked if he was really getting up and he said yes. So we brewed the coffee and went and sat on the front porch in the dark at 5:00 a.m. We watched the moon as we drank our coffee. It was nice and relaxing and we listened to the night sounds. Saw a couple of neighbors go up the street to go to work. Hubby went in to the Brewster (our chocolate lab) and he went back to bed.......lol...lol....I would never be able to go back to sleep like that. BUT I really sleep well at night every night.

If I don't answer

Thursday, August 26, 2010

I just want to say that I am having so much pain in my arm off and on that if I don't answer your comment on spark page or blog, you will know I am having a bad day. My surgery isn't until next Thursday, 9/2/ and some days I can type and some I can't. I love SP and really don't like if I can't do the things I like to do here. Just remember if I am not here, I am still thinking about you gals/guys. I hope to at least log in everyday, but not sure right after the surgery if I will be able to. Right now I am icing it as I type and that really helps a lot. Will be here before surgery when I can and will see about after. emoticon.

    I truly understand. I am just getting the effects of the "lightest" dose of chemo. possible and I sure would hate to see what the heavy duty stuff is like. I had to leave the dining room in the middle of lunch and I just love that metallic taste you get in your mouth from these wonderful drugs. But on the positive side, maybe I will lose some weight!
