Much Better Week

Tuesday, June 12, 2012



Wouldn't you know that as soon as I made a doctor appointment, the dizziness stopped!!! I went anyway and got put on 10 days of antibiotic. I had a sinus infection not just allergies. The first 3 days of the antibiotic really kicked my butt. On Saturday (the 4th day) I felt a little better. I was supposed to go to Branson to meet a spark team mate, who is from Guam and visiting family and friends in the states, but didn't feel that I should make a 90 minute drive alone. So with much regret, I told her I couldn't come. She was so gracious (Thanks, Jane) and I so wanted to meet her.

So far, I have had sense enough to know when I shouldn't drive but my girls have all been instructed that if I don't use that sense they are to step in and get "bossy". Luckily, none of my girls mind taking me places on those occasions that I'm not comfortable driving.

4 more days of antibiotic......... emoticon

My B 12 level was good so injections are monthly again. Recheck in 6 months........

    I found out that my sporadic ear ache was probably allergies/sinus! Darn things!

Glad you are feeling better.

out with the old doors......in with the new doors

Saturday, June 02, 2012



these are the old falling apart doors with wide gaps around them



and these are the newly installed larger regular house steel doors. The screen just pushes up into the top when the storm window is needed. No more gaps around this door.

Sinuses, Vertigo, fatigue, or depression

Thursday, May 31, 2012



Today hasn't been a real good day for me.....I am very tired or maybe fatigued. My dizziness has been terrible today. If I move quickly or stand up too fast, I almost go forward. Luckily I have been able to catch myself. Also, I've had a mild headache all day. I felt better for a while after taking a nap.

My sinuses are stuffy which leads to the dizziness. I just don't want the vertigo to set in.

My shoulders still feel heavy at times. The exercise seems to be helping them.

I am puffy from eating out Tuesday and Wednesday even though I made good choices both times. They just use way too much salt in preparing their foods. Even the vegetables have salt in them. This is what my weight gain is from.

It's cloudy today which sets my SADS off.....I am just a complainer today........gripe, moan, squawk, complain....that's me today.........LOL

    I always have an issue with salt when I eat out, no matter how "good" I am, so I try to not do it very often, and definitely not if I have a scheduled weigh-in for a team. :-)

I hope the other things you mentioned are better.

    \i was very dizzy in the fall and added Maca powder and B12 and have less trouble now. I had to take a lot of non-drowsy motion sickness pills before someone else suggested the supplements. Apparently i have pretty odd ball female hormones with too much progesterone.

My House Mates

Wednesday, May 30, 2012



These are my new housemates. This is Becka and Kira.......my granddaughter and great granddaughter who moved in with me March 18. Kira is 17 months old now.

After being by myself for 3 or 4 years, this has been quite an adjustment. My youngest 2grandchildren will be 16 in September and December so haven't had a little one around for quite a while. This has been an adjustment for DJ too. He isn't used to sharing me with anyone..........LOL

Even with all the changes (and who really likes changes) I am enjoying having them here.

Becka starts a job tomorrow and if it works out good she will be getting her own place.

Blessings to all

out in the back yard......more commonly known as the dog pen....LOL

  


A Hot Tired Week

Tuesday, May 29, 2012



This week has been in the low 90s most of the time with humidity which sure does drag one down. My energy level has been about - 12. I have gotten outside some each day sometimes no longer than 10 to 15 minutes watering the roses.

I have gotten some of DJ's fur cut back so he doesn't have any breathing problems. He doesn't move around mush in this heat and humidity.

We have 2 more days of 90+ temps then are supposed to be into the high 60s through the week end. Looks like it's going to be a long hot summer.

Last evening the wind calmed enough that we had a bon fire roasting turkey brats and making s'mores. I had 1 of each.

Tonight I will be at a casino for a $100,000 drawing that I have 1 entry in. I have a teeny tiny chance of winning but if I don't go I have no chance of winning.

Blessings to all
