Tuesday doctor.

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I am off in a little while to get my shot in the spine. Nervous but anxious also. We had a great 4 days in Wisconsin with my daughters family and got home yesterday evening.

Will be happy to be able to connect with my spark friends again to see how everyone is doing. I did ok with my eating with only a few slips. The scale did show a 1/2 pd loss so am happy for that. I am finding that I can make the right decisions, DH even shared meals with me for I can't eat that big anymore. So I would have the salad and we would split the sandwich.

So I am off and will catch up with everyone later to find out out how all are doing. Good Tuesday to you all.

    Glad you made it back safely. Funny you should mention your DH sharing meals with you. We do that with desserts, but I will say that since I started this journey my DH has started eating healthier, not because I cook different, but because he sees what is happening to me. I think I may be rubbing off on him (still). Oh and my portion sizes have shrunk so I always get two lunches out of one...half sandwiches. However when I make my own sandwich I eat the whole thing.....low cal wheat bread, turkey mustard...not much to them. I started experimenting with mixing horseradish with different condiments....so far so good and I use less mayo....
Hope the "shot" went OK....sending you a whole bunch of gentle emoticon.

Hump day

Storm went thru last night but all is good. Got the treadmill in this morning and now need to caught up on washing and cleaning house before we head out tomorrow for Wisconsin. So excited to see my grandson in his play. Hate the ride but we can stop off and on to let me get out and walk for my back. When coming home we will stop in Rochester to wish my sister a happy birthday.

Sun is shining today and they say in the 80s before storms are to roll in again tonight.
Thanks for your wishes for me and hope you are doing well. May our trip be successful and our love to sent to many on our journey. emoticon

    We had a couple of storms roll through early this morning. More predicted for tonight and tomorrow. All is well here to. Doing the "Spring Bootcamp Challenge"...day 4.
I need to get some strength training in and this is an eye opener. Also my new insurance kicks in this month (Humana Medicare Advantage) which will allow me to join the YMCA's Silver Sneaker program. I know they have a Yoga stretch class that I am interested in. They also have other classes, but may hold off with them until fall/winter....I can get my cardio in while the weather is still nice around here.
Have a safe trip, take along an umbrella, and enjoy! emoticon

Monday doctor

Monday, April 30, 2012

Well got the appt. done. We have decided to do a ephidual in my spine first to see how it will go. After 2 weeks will see him again to see how it worked, if not better then will have to have surgery. So next Tuesday I will go over to surgery center and get the shot in my spine. Don't like that thought but if it works, better then being laid up for a lot longer.

We will be going out to my daughters on Thursday to see our grandson in a play and will return on Monday. The shot Tuesday which will take me down a few days then see what happens. So let them know at school that I can not help out this week or next.

Thanks for all the prayers and I will keep you up on how it is going.

    Well at least you have a plan now. Hope the shot helps long term, or at least long enough that you can't remember what the pain felt like to begin with. Have a good time at your daughters and Tuesday will be here before you know it. Have some good days off from work and take care of yourself.
