Better Now

Saturday, October 30, 2010

As most of you know, I have been MIA for a whole week. I had a fairly minor surgery 10/22 and all seemingly went well. On Sunday, I started with a complication that just continued to not get better. I was in a lot of pain taking lots of pain meds. I sure missed a lot while I slept the whole week away. After 2 additional visits to the doctor, finally I started getting better. I had 234 emails when I got back on line yesterday, so I would like to thank all of you (while writing this blog) for all of the prayers, well wishes, and spark goodies sent my way. I enjoy Spark People so much and am glad I am on here with such great people. It means so much to know that so many people care. This is the greatest place I know of for support.....we are always here. Love you gals/guys. Nancy

    I'm so happy your feeling better and I want to thank you for having your daughter check in with us.. nothings more scary than wondering if everything is ok... makes me want to show my family all the places they need to go to tell all my cyber friends what has happened if I find myself not being able to do it myself..

Update and thanks for all the page of the day comments!

Friday, October 22, 2010


Mom asked me to please thank everyone for all the congrats on her having page of the day!

She had a fairly minor surgical procedure this morning but the recovery is rough! She is not a pill person, rarely taking a Tylenol even and she has a very high pain tolerance, but with Percocet every 4 hours and Valium every 6 hours she is still miserable. The doctor said it would be very painful and rough for 2-3 days, but I'm hoping she will feel more like herself tomorrow.

She will be back to posting as soon as possible. Right now she's not totally coherent with all the medicine she's not used to taking in her system. I doubt she will remember that I told her she got Page of the day, but she will be so thrilled when she's back online and sees the congrats and well wishes. Thank you all!

Again We Have a Beautiful Day

Thursday, October 21, 2010

What a beautiful day today is. This moring I had to take a trip into town for an appointment. When I got back, I went for my walk. It was so nice outside....the leaves are starting to turn and lots have already fallen. When I came back, hubby and I had lunch. I packed a a few more items (getting ready for the move). Hubby and I sat on the front porch for a little while and now he is fixing dinner. We are having a stew that I made yesterday and a salad. LIFE IS GREAT.....AND emoticon

    I love fall too. It is my favorite season with all of the fall color. It is a little depressing with the long winter ahead (cold and dark), but you have to enjoy the little things.

    I have also been enjoying this beautiful fall weather. After all, we know what happens after fall, at least in the Midwest. So I'm soaking up the beautiful sun, the crisp air and the gorgeous colors all that I can.

What a positive post ... a delight to read. I agree 150% - LIFE IS GREAT AND I LOVE SP (10/19 was my 5-year anniversary).

Keeping track of water

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

The Brita pitcher was back on the Nutrition page again today..I was reading the other day that someone had a hard time keeping track of the water they drink each day. They always wondered if they met the quota. Well, they came up with a good idea. They put the amount of bangle bracelets on one arm (that they wanted to drink). Each time a glass ws finished a bracelet was transferred to the other arm. When all bracelets were transferred, the quota was met. I think that is a good idea.

    I don't know...Those bangle bracelets would drive me nuts...Then again, maybe that's the trick; I'd hurry up and get my eight glasses of water "in" earlier in the day, just to get the bracelets off! emoticon

    That is a good idea. While I'm at work I grab a posted note and draw a slash mark each time I finish a glass.

    My Brita pitcher does not have handles that you can attach things to. I wonder what her pitcher looks like?
