Just a Wake-up Call DS will learn to take of Himself

Saturday, August 11, 2012

DS had surgery on Friday with the threat of possibly having his big toe amputated. Well he did not get his toe amputated. Only a toe nail and a little of the bone behind is nail.

He was very relive. Now the hard work taking care of his self.

I will pray that God will lead him where he should be.

I am feeling great. I have not issues about food. I exercise when I can. I am using the walker and so I do not have to depend of anyone to get around.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Diabetes A lesson for my Son

Friday, August 10, 2012

Hi All,

This is my son's journey. However, I am very concerned. He is 32 has had diabetes since he was 16 He chose a job as a waiter that was fine I wanted to leave him room to find his own path.

About 2 months ago he had a couple of sores on his feet. He says he went to the beach and hurt is toe. He has a great dr. She bandage his toes and told him to stay off his feet. I has a mother (who is not ready to let go) Ask if he wanted to come to my house to rest and when his foot heal I would take him back home. I also ask if he would like to move back home and get assistance until he could get back on his feet.

Well he came for 2 days and went back home and back to work. He went for a dr's check and was told to go to the ER.

They admitted him. He had a MRI and it showed the infection has spread to his big toe. So he is going for Surgery today. DS called me crying they may have to amputate his toe.
I felt so helpless I am in a exacerbation with MS I am not able to go to him, he is out of state.
So I called the hospital I spoke to the nurse on the floor, the hospital chaplin, the social worker, and his aunt and sister and other family members who are all out of town, I call the church he attends Unity. Members will visit him Sunday. Everyone else came by that day.

I felt so such better and he thanked me. DH thought this was very funny. Actually DS did too. But he appreciated the attention. DS understand I could not be there but his mother would call the Calvary emoticon

Thank you all for your support I do not know what I would do without MY emoticon's

Primary Care Dr says

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Yes I went to my Dr and she says because of my MS she can not recommend the surgery. She would rather see my a little heavy than for me to reach a good BMI and have new symptoms and the MS get worse.

I am good with this. I lost 5lbs, my blood pressure is 130/80(great). My DH just loves me no matter what I do.

So I am on the journey that many of us are on. God had another plan.

I will move ahead with joy knowing that this is my path and I did not force a solution. All is Well.

Take care and have a great week.

My mantra


I will not give up on myself. I am the only one that can make it happen for me with God's help . I have the power to succeed or fail.

Choose to succeed.

Janet

    Janet,
I am so glad you talked to your primary care Dr. and discussed this with her. Her advise is very sound and I am so glad you are okay with the diet. You and I still have a lot in common and we need to continue this journey together, I don't know about you, but I still need your support.
Love and hugs to you.
Liz

A Speical Delight

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I had a busy week and a half. My son from ILL. came I got the chance to see my granddaughter for the first time. Nothing can be finer that to be a grandmother when they are months old she is 6 months. The first thing I noticed was how strong willed she is and she wants what she wants no compromises. My son has his hands full God bless him.

Then my step son stopped to visit, he is a trucker from Miss. and we had not seem him in 6 years. He is a great man. He is so thoughtful and kind I feel like I am his mother. He is very respectful. I enjoyed his company and DH was thrilled.

First I did not chose food to express how I feel. This is new for me. Second I was on my food program with peace and contentment. This is new also. I choose to see the glass half full not half full.

All praises to a power greater than myself who I chose to call God.

I am on a pre-op diet just under a 1000 cals and I feel very contented.

I have 8 days to see the surgeon emoticon


Have a great week emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have used this to encourage my friends and well as member who in their blog ask for help or the entry title they state sadness or doubt.

I even use this for me I too need to me reminded this is not a race that stopping and smelling the roses on a daily basis means I am in the moment I am present for life.

    I am so pleased to hear your have your surgery consult appointment. That means you are so much closer to your surgery. We are going to do this together all the way. It is amazing to me the connection that we have developed in such a short time. emoticon emoticon

    I don't think I am part of the tunnel, I'd prefer to think of myself as an encouraging guard rail with a twisted sense of humor. I am so happy your surgery is right around the corner and I will tell you the first 60 days you are going to feel amazing like you haven't felt in years...My God bless you today and every tomorrow...."Sprink"

    Having a confidence in our self is the best key to any success. It is good that you are moving forward each and every step of the way. Don't think about looking back because it will just give you a flash back of what was going on. Now look forward to a brighter future which is waiting for you and ..Just You & Only You can make the first step & keep continuing toward the success..
