    I'm sorry about the pain, Laura, and hope you soon find the 'cure'. It's emoticon that the therapy is helping, allowing you to type with your left hand again.

Gained Another 2 Pounds, Daughter, and Health Care

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Well i guess i have to get serious about losing weight now. I gained another 2 pounds this week. My daughter says that i am to log my calories every day for 3 weeks until i lose 5 pounds.
I have another month of therapy yet before they say i am good to go. I got my healthcare through the state now and i can get rides to my appointments with Logistics now. I got a ride scheduled for the 10th so i do not have to ask anyone anymore. I only had to ask someone for tomorrow cause it was too soon. Weather is warming up now i am glad. Still have some cleaning to do so i can file bankruptcy. They upped it to over 600 now. I need to look into a dentist that is reasonable enough now too. Still waiting on someone from church to call about a ride to the new women's bible study tonight. Doing a 40 Day Soul Fast Bible Study with my daughter now. Trying to break my habits of pessimism and swearing every time something goes wrong.

    I'm playing catch up, and it's really good to hear that your healthcare seems to be working out well. Re: pessimism and swearing, Phil 4:13. I'm reminding myself too as I get myself back on track after having been so sick and tired last month. emoticon Isn't it great to have a supportive daughter?

    Happy to hear that you are now covered by insurance. That has to be a relief. I went without for over 10 years and only by the grace of God did I avoid any major problems.
One day at a time and God will be there - just lay your cares on him and he will unburden you. Faith!

Tired Of This Crappy Weather and Next Week See Doctor

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I am tired of this crappy weather we are having here! Now we are supposed to get snow and rain again tonight and tomorrow! I have an appointment with the therapist tomorrow too. And i am going on the other van that goes on Thursdays. Hope I will not have to cancel again. I gained my pound back that i lost last week; hand is gradually getting stronger. Last 2 sessions i worked with Heidi's boss and he does not even work you for a full half hour. Next Tuesday I see the doctor to see my hand again and find out if i need to see a hand therapist or not. If so i will tell him to hold off until after the 9th when i get insurance through the state.

    Wishing you well, Laura. I hope getting to/from the appointment wasn't a problem. I imagine your weather is worse than ours, and frankly, I've had all the winter I want for a long time.

Appointment Cancellation and Cold

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

I had to cancel my appointment for today because of my cold and my Thursday appointment has been changed from 11 am to 3 pm. Hoping this cold will get better by then. I am using Mucinex to break it up. Still getting cold flashes though. My daughter went on the van in my place today. Her cold is doing better than mine. I signed up for the healthcare online and will be getting Badger Care Plus like my daughter will in April. Now if only my wrist would heal and a job would come by. Been unusually warm here in Wisconsin the last couple days and leaving us with puddles everywhere.

    Seems everyone everywhere is sick. We have had friends hospitalized with severe bronchitis and flu this winter. Luckily we have escaped so far. Last yr was worse for us-DH was hospitalized 3X.

    Sorry you're still sick. I'm better, but have to go back to work tomorrow. I'm praying for the energy to last through the day. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad you're finding something that helps with your cold. They certainly seem to be hanging on or coming right back after we think they're over - at least that's how it is with me this year. Yes, I'm sneezing and sniffling again. Oh well, taking my own comments (see my blogs) to heart, I'm thanking the Lord that He is in control and is doing a work in me, even while I'm under the weather.

I'm glad "that" woman wasn't on the van, and also that Jenny is turning the corner on her cold. Since you're sick, it's probably a good thing the appt was cancelled. Hopefully, you'll feel better by Thursday.

Enjoy the warm weather while you can. We're experiencing some ourselves, but Thursday's high is expected to be 30 degrees!

Bad Cold and Therapy Sessions

Saturday, March 08, 2014

I am getting over a bad cold now that my daughter also has. I wanted to go to church tomorrow but not the way i feel. Hope it gets better by Tuesday when i go on the van again. Another party will be going on that does not like the other woman and I am hoping she will not be on after getting into trouble again. I have 2 more weeks of therapy sessions yet before i see the doctor again. What do you think of the new Spark Points? I liked the old format better. It was easier to get points. This new one is harder. I cannot do any exercise until my wrist is fully healed.

    Sparkpoints can become every bit the obsession as watching the numbers on a scale. I remember when they added the bonus spin, and now the 5 spins for points for teams. Hope you are feeling better.

    Laura, I'm sorry you and Jenny are sick. DH and I had colds that pretty much lasted a month or so - at least the coughs did. It's hateful!

Stay home tomorrow and let your body heal. Good luck with Tuesday and riding the van. Hopefully that woman won't be there.

I don't know that I have any real feelings for or against the points. I just do what I can, and let the chips fall where they may. Could you do some walking or any other kind of exercise? I know you can't do anything that might aggravate your wrist, and I wouldn't urge you to do any such. Regardless, you wrist WILL heal.

Meanwhile, perhaps you could spend a few extra minutes with the Lord. He may be trying to teach you something in this enforced no-exercise time. Or maybe He just wants you to spend a bit more time with Him for the fellowship. I'll be praying for healing for you (and Jenny).

    I'm so sorry you and daughter are sick. You both have my prayers and sympathy. Husband and I are sick too. We will be SO SO happy when we stop coughing and can sleep better at night. emoticon

I miss being able to post the spins. It was fun. Otherwise, I mostly like it. I like getting points for reading my goals and for giving team points.
