Im recovering from my back injury

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

My life on spark people came to a halt when i was knocked off my feet by my dog.She was doing her doggy thing and i was hurt worse than i originally thought when i woke up one day and could'nt get up.I injured an old injury and my doc put me on the couch!No housework,no cooking,cleaning or driving!!Alot of pain killers and being taken care of.I'm alot wobbly on my feet and using a cane but took a ride to Louisiana to see my 91 year old DMIL.She is a riot and had me laughing the whole time!When we came back,my DH bought me a new computer package for Mothers day!My old one was so infected with viruses it wasn't worth repairs.I was given the green light to do some light exercises and walk on low with my treadmill.Im trying my best to check in on ya'll! emoticon and LOVE,SUSAN

    Susan, make sure you rest a lot and give your back time to heal before you jump back into anything. I'm now metal from S2 to L2 and from C4-C6, so I know what I am talking about! Put your long term health first!

    I can empathize about getting knocked off your feet and not feel like you are really participating in life. It is rough getting back into the swing of things. I keep having things knock me back down Will be calling the dr today for what I think is sciatica. All I know is that it hurts but I have to keep going to do what needs to be done as there is no one else here who is able to do it.
Keep looking to the Lord for assistance and youwill soon be where you need to be again

My dog and a rabbit

Saturday, April 21, 2012

I was mowing grass,my dog was lounging in the shade.Out of nowhere came a rabbit and ran right behind me,with my dog hot on its trail...BAM!She hit my legs and flipped me....stunned I laid on the ground for a few minutes.I tried to stand and my back was hurting so much I couldnt get up.I pulled out my cell and called my DD(in her room)No answer!!I called the dog over and she sat still until I made it to my feet.I got inside and collapsed on my couch.I hollered at my DD and she came running.My Dh came home and took me to the ER.Im okay just could barely walk for 3 days.Those wascally wabbits!!I will put Mocha in the house while I mow from now on!!Happy Saturday Ya'll emoticonSUSAN

MY DAUGHTER the GRADUATE!!!!!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

The school called me and asked to see me...Oh no my mind raced..shes so close....In 30 minutes please the polite young woman asked...ok,I swallowed hard..I'll be there..I have to walk,my cars in the shop...No problem she replied I'll be here...I dont think my feet touched the ground!I walked through the door,saw my daughter sitting in the office and my heart just sank..the solemn look on her face spoke volumes...Suddenly,she hopped from her seat...threw her arms around me and said MOM!Im a graduate!!!My heart sprouted wings and we danced in a circle hugging!SHE GOT ME!I felt like crying it was such a nice outcome to her prank...She made me keep it quiet until she told her Dad.His face lit up like a Christmas tree...We've both been worried about her attitude lately....I basically said these words to her 2 weeks ago...Winners never quit and quitters never win!She said it was like someone punched her in the stomach but it made her think.LOL...all the lectures and one comment made her get serious!She will get her cap and gown in May and graduate June 2nd and my camera will be Hot and ready to capture the moment.We took her out to eat at Texas Roadhouse and she ordered steak and shrimp...I will miss her sorely when she moves on but,it's what im praying for...for her to excel and me to EXHALE emoticonSUSAN

Taylor is dying

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

She was tiny,pale,bald and a genuine smile lit her face.Uh hum she cleared her throat nervously I am Taylor,im 8 and have non hodgkins lymphoma.I am here to walk a mile for miss Susan and mama.She went on to explain her fight with cancer and the crowd cheered!I was planning to cheer her on at the sidelines but ended up joining her on the crowded walk.She was wearing a pink tee,tennis shoes and jean shorts.A happy flowers hat sat pertly on her small head and she smiled and waved at everyone yelling our names.She was on crutches and her mama and myself lifted her part of the way on our backs.People handed us juice and or water and said GO TAYLOR!!she just beamed with pride...she wont beat the cancer ,it has ravaged her tiny body and she is tired but,I'll never forget her tenacious personality and love for humankind...she is and always will be a winner!! emoticonSUSAN

    So sad isn't it when young people die way too early. Our good friends just lost their 40 year old daughter to lymphome. She left 2 young sons behind.
