My dad was born on Sept. 1, 1917. He lived to be 86 but I think of him every September and miss him so much! Happy Birthday Dad!
My goal for September is to continue to do something for at least 10 minutes a day. I have been able to do that for at least a week or so now:)
I have to start eating better! I have been eating a whole lot of sandwiches lately, out of pure laziness! At least I do eat a lot of fruits!
Friday, my coworkers called in sick so I was the only one in the office and I tried to do dispatch. I don't do dispatch and probably made a mess of things! I did do my best, and hope things aren't too messed up this morning! I wasn't able to work on my own things at all, so I have some catching up to do today also. Should be an interesting day at work to say the least:)
Hope everyone has a great September! I can't wait for winter to arrive! We were 101 degrees yesterday but they say it will cool off a little this week. I sure hope so!

I got the results of the scan yesterday and they said there are "no new abnormalities"! Woohoo! I thought, hmmm......what are they trying to say, that I'm naturally "abnormal" therefore, there are no new abnormalities? lol
I got to get off my butt and start moving again! I have no excuse to lay in bed 24/7 when I'm not at work. I need to really think about this and get myself motivated again to start exercising and living life again!
I also thought it had been 2 years since I had chemo last, but my nurse told me the other day that it has been a little over a year, and I may be able to get my port taken out! I don't know how I thought it had been 2 years, I added a year on to my recovery somehow:)
I looked up my old blogs here on SP and it is like having a diary! My last chemo treatment was in 2012, so the nurse was mistaken. I should for sure be able to get my port taken out now when I tell them it's been 2 years, not one. I thought December 2014 would be 2 years since they told me officially that I was cancer free:)
So, I am a 2 year cancer survivor!
I love reading the old blogs and all the nice comments and support and encouragement I received from everyone, and it was great to see a lot of the friends I talk to on here everyday, are the same ones who were there for me way back then!
Thank you SP! You are a great bunch of people to be taking this journey we call "life" with me!

Well, Monday is the 18th and my appointment with my oncologist for the test results is on the 20th. I still have not had the scan! I called them once again last week and reminded them my appointment for the results were this week and I really needed to get an appointment for the scan. Once again, they told me to call my doctor because they needed an authorization, so I called the doctor and they said I didn't need prior authorization and to call radiology, and round and round I went once more! This time I told them no! You call radiology! I have been trying to get this test scheduled for almost 2 months now, or maybe even longer, I'm not sure how long ago the doctor ordered the test.
This is so frustrating and not the first time they have done this to me when the doctor ordered some kind of test to be done. I think he needs new staff people! They are not very competent! I think I will show up for my appointment and tell him how many times I have called and tried to get someone to act on getting me the test, and how they just blame it on the each other for not getting it done. I don't know if I will or not, but I am "at my wits end" as they say:)

My brother is diabetic and about a month ago, his wife of 37 years left him over money problems.A big mix up at the bank and she was so embarrassed, she just couldn't handle all the money problems anymore.At least that's what she says. There has to be more to it than that I think, But anyways..... He hasn't been able to eat hardly at all and has lost weight. His blood sugar was NORMAL yesterday! First time he said that he can ever remember it being normal! He is really overweight but is really starting to move around so much better too! A month ago, he would have to stop and catch his breath just going up the stairs to my office, now he is bouncing up the stairs!
I told my sister that his wife might have actually done him a favor by leaving him and she said "It's about time she did something for him".lol
Ain't that the truth too!

Well, tonight I decided I would join the New You Boot Camp team again, for about the 3rd time over the years. When I did it before, it really got me motivated and moving again. I was doing the videos everyday and walking all the time. I really enjoyed it and was really enthused about exercise, so I thought maybe that is what I need again to get me out of this bed and back to living life again!
It has been 2 years since I went into remission from Stage IIIa Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer. But since then, I have not been living at all. I go through the motions, but mostly I just sleep. After being off work for exactly one year while going through treatment, I started back slowly, just one day a week, then 3 days a week, and now I work full time again. But once I get home, I lie in bed and do nothing, and go nowhere, and see no one!
When I was first diagnosed I had been very active with my friends, with the Glass Slipper organization, with my church, but when people would call me to go do things, I never felt good enough to go, eventually they stopped calling. These past 2 years I have been so tired that when my family asks me to do things with them, I go for an hour or so then just go home and go back to bed.
I know God did not give me a second chance at life to just lie in bed all day and all night! I need to find a way to make myself get up and do things! Like clean my house, do laundry, go shopping, visit with family and friends, walk everyday again, and start helping out with the Glass Slipper again. So many things I should do, and could do, but here I sit. Day after day.
I hope joining this team will get me moving again, and that in turn will give me more energy and I will be able to start living again!
