Sunday's Goals

Monday, February 07, 2011

These are the goals that I have been trying to do each day...

Find something beautiful-the sound of the dripping melted snow outside my window

Did you know-The best time to take probotics is 20 before breakfast, Vitamen C is with breakfast and dinner, your multivitamen 1/2 at breakfast and 1/2 at dinner, omega 3 is after breakfast, CoQ10 at lunchtime, blood thinners (warafin, aspirin, etc) is before bed and synthroid first thing in the morning and an hour before you eat breakfast.

Laugh-at my niece cause she was blowing a feather during church and i asked her to stop and she asked why, was it because i was jealous..lol

Blessing-spending the afternoon with youngest niece

Game-word search

Bible verse-Proverbs 6:6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.

    They are great goals, cause sometimes I think sometimes, we forget to stop, and take time out to laugh, and thank our blessings for loved ones, we need to slow down and take time out for ourselves and others. Nice blog

Getting back to me...In it to win it

Saturday, February 05, 2011

Hey to all...it's been a long while, i know, and for that i am sorry. as most of you know, i had hernia surgery the middle of last year, with that was also a bowel reconstruction and due to my asthma many months of relearning just how to breath...uhg. i then ended up with blood clots to left thigh and lungs. that being said, the surgery had me losing a bunch of weight but then with breathing problems and such, started gaining again...the good that did come from it is that i do have a fresh lease on life...amazing when you are knocked down how well you take a look at your life and the importance of it. yes, i went through a bit of a depression also, but for all that i had been through, i also think that is normal, and just gave me a better look at myself and who i am and who i want to be. which leads me to today. i've started a new routine with myself since 1/1 and going strong. in the last 2 weeks i have lost 10 lbs and feeling great. my home is cleaner and i'm spending more time with myself. i am ready to jump back into tracking on SP and to regrouping with my SP family...just not as much as i had been. so you may not hear from me every day, but i will be on here more than the past 6 months also.

My daily goals that I have been doing since 1/1 and ones that I will continue to blog about fairly regularly....though i do track it on paper every single day.

Find something beautiful each day
Find out something new
Laugh about something
Name one blessing
Play a game
A bible verse that sticks out
Tracking food/water/exercise

I'm Sick Of This Dance

Sunday, June 13, 2010

Ok...my last blog was about taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back in my recovery... well... life threw me another dance move to add...it was 3 steps back and to the side.... last sunday night i went to the hospital er because fluid was building up in my stomach... they wanted to keep me, but my surgeon said no, he could take care of it in his office...during this time, the hospital doc noticed abnormal swelling in my legs...so she ordered an ultra sound for the next morning...so i go home for the night...thinking all was going to be all right...next morning mom and i go to get ultra sound done...to find out...i have a blood clot half the length of my thigh...so back to the hospital we go....they do a cat scan...where they find a HUGE clot in my lungs and it is affecting my heart...i also have an abscess in my stomach... but blood clots first...i am immediately put on heprin drip and admitted... in my mind, this is not happening...my dd2 is getting married friday night and i am going to be there....period...i was in icu for 2 days...but we still held out hope... even threw the infection from abscess....infection under control....on thursday i talk to doctor in charge about me leaving for 2 hours on friday for my baby's wedding...imagine my suprise when he said NO...no way, no how...the clot in lung was just too big.... i cried... i threw a fit...and yea...even yelled at him....how dare he try to save my life...lol.... luckily for me....the nurses got wind of this...and though i was still way too sick to get snuck out... they could sneak wedding in... i was given a private room, and the sun room on my flood was decorated for wedding...we could could not fit the entire wedding in, but the key players were there...the bride, groom and preacher, my dd1 (matron of honor) and my ds (groomsman and fill in best man), my mom and myself and mother and father of the bride....and though i still had to have my iv in, i was allowed off the oxygen for that time.... all parties were dressed, yes, including me.... and my nurses dressed in the wedding colors...it was beautiful...not the same as me being at the church wedding... but beautiful and memorable just the same... and since it was the first wedding...it was really the official wedding...so the church wedding was the mock one any ways....there is also a story behind all this...see...18 1/2 yrs ago, i was pregnant with dd2...my water broke 11 wks early....i was placed in the hospital on bed rest...same floor...same unit, that i was now on... said baby girl was born a week later and lived in the special needs nursery for the next 6 weeks...yep...on same floor...so it seems her little fight for life has come full circle... as for mine....well... still fighting...i did get to come home today...on many meds.... including coumiden...just like my mom earlier this year.... they also found i have an under active thyroid, which i am now taking meds for... still taking antibiotics for infection, though under control now... and...it will be a couple more weeks before i can return to work...all depends how fast my heart heals and how well my asthma stays under control...so yea...it's been quite a week... some almost fatal...some bad...and sad... but... part...good...very good... and memorable....still wish i could of been there for church wedding...but this was definately a good second best...

so there you have it...me taking recovery to a new twist...

    Thank God that you were diagnosed with DVT and PE in time. PE if undiagnosed for any longer could've been fatal ! God Bless You and I hope and pray for your speedy recovery. I am glad that your DD's wedding went off well and in your presence. Take care.

2 Steps Forward

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

and 3 steps back....that is pretty much how my recovery is going. just when i think i am moving forward, another complication sets in and takes me back....frustrating...but...it also means i am still fighting....refusing to give up...

i do want to thank each of you who have been sending me little notes and goodies :) i do see them...just not able to reply on most days. I am thinking of you all and hope that i can soon be an active part of SP and our teams again soon.

    You and I have both been on SP for quite awhile by now, and it's hard to keep up the intensity sometimes. I'm glad that we are still hanging on and know that we can always rely on our Spark friends for support. Please take care, and you remain in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

A Long Road...And It's Not Over Yet

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Ok...so i am finally home from the hospital...yea!!! BUT...because i did have a strangulation that we did not know about...means there was a lot more to the hernia surgery than originally planned...so...i'm not healing as fast as i should...so i am home, but with oxygen and lots of meds...oh...and my wonderful help :) Thank God for mommies and kids. So it's a slow recovery...but i am here...more details later, but i did want to give all my wonderful friends that have been sending notes, prayers and goodies a big thank you and that i am in fact alive...

Hugs to each of you.
