Well DS is home with me. How did that Happen?

Monday, August 13, 2012

The folks who DS was to go to recuperate did not show up at the hospital to take him home with them. I called just check on him. He was at his apartment. He has a inflatable mattress and he live with 4 other people who shares the apartment.

I told him he can stay with me. He said mom I know you are not well and he is concerned for me.

DH and I went to his home to bring him back he lives about an hour away. I have a spare room. So he is with me.

I told him I am not his mother just a good friend who is helping another friend.

He is a great friend who just happens to be my son.

I will keep you posted he will be here for 3 weeks. This should be very interesting.

Thank you all my friends for being there for me. I have no others friends but emoticon'S

Thanks again

Have a great week, I will

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.

    Great attitude. God always has a better plan so if surgery is not for you, then you will do better on good eating plan and exercise.I am so glad your BP is in the normal range.
Take care and Hugs. emoticon

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.

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
