GOOD CHILLI DAY !

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I made chilli last night for dinner so at 7 am i woke up thinking about it ! emoticon I am the one that measures out 1/2 cup to 1 cup of soup and happy with that but i made a big pot of chilli last night and i could have ate the whole pot ! emoticon I guess all those pills are doing a number on me ! emoticon This morning i warmed me up a bowl of chilli but didn't measure it . It was over a cup tho . I GOT TO GET A GRIP OR I WILL GAIN MYWEIGHT BACK! Doctor says i will anyway but i can at least do my part not to. I ate the chilli and took 8 pills and have 9 more for lunch . Not sure if the chemo pills will make me sick so i enjoyed my chilli ! emoticon My red patches are fading. emoticon I won't know me without them ! emoticon DH has a bad cold so we arent going to church. My immune system is down and several are sick in our church. God is so good to us ! We got a warm home and food on our table we have NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT ! emoticon HAVE A GREAT SABBATH DAY ! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Vickie, just wanted you to know I was thinking of you today, keeping you in my prayers as always, thanks for your valued friendship, I so enjoy all your spark mail outs for the Team...great blog, I too love chilli, emoticon after reading this I think I will be making a big pot of chilli, I freeze a few portions for days when I don't feel like cooking, it makes an easy meal, add a salad and some toast or garlic bread and you have a healthy meal, I too measure my food.. emoticon

    If you want to make that chili last longer, try dipping celery sticks in it,, you get the taste in every bite, but you get crunch and the water in the celery fills you up much faster!! Any veggie will do.. but celery has no calories,,
another way is to just barely warm it up, make a big salad and dribble that chili on he salad to make a cheaters taco salad,, you still get that taste, but it is stretched out on the big salad!!

This to will pass !

Saturday, December 22, 2012

This has been a tough week for me giving up my birds broke my heart but in the serenity prayer it says accept the things you cant change and that was a big one for me. It's a no brainer as they say because the birds bowl movement is airborn and my eyes are infected all the time anyway which opens them to eye diseases that birds carry . I thank the Lord for the strength he has given me thru all this. HE HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME ! emoticon Today i am going to check on pepper my meyer he's been biting the ones cleaning his cage at the pet store ! emoticon He is just scarred stiff. Wouldn't eat for 2 days! 8 years + we were buddies daily no one else now all these people are there . I got to get some gift cards yet and i will be done shopping . Gonna make some chilli today .Having chicken thighs cooked in the crockpot for dinner . I cook them in cream of chickensoup and cheddar cheesesoup ! emoticon Have a good day take care and give someone a good word or a smile today emoticon emoticon

Monday i will start chemo!

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Sorry but after thinking about it i decided to start my chemo Monday instead of yesterday because if it makes me sick it will be on the weekend and i want to go to church . I have to take 17 pills that day and don't know how my body will handle it. I been praying and i have decided i got to do this to try to save my eyesight that i got left so i might as well make it a positive thing . emoticon I told dh i was going to prepare monday nights dinner in crockpot before i take the pills. I got to take them all at once but only 6 of them are chemo 2 predisone 1 folic acid pill 1 thyroid 1 pravistatin 1 lasix 1isorbide 1celexis 4 inderal ! emoticon Your probably thinking does she believe GOD ANSWERS PRAYER? YOU BET I DO I HAVE HAD MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE IN MY LIFE. WE ARE SERVING A GOD THAT IS IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS MY FRIENDS BUT HIS WAYS AREN'T OUR WAYS ! I stand by the serinity prayer 100% ! AM I DISCOURAGE ? I WON'T LET SATIN DO THAT TO ME . READ ROMANS 8:28. Going thru this i feel his presence daily ! I want to make this a positive thing so mondays when i want to i am going to make it a pj day and do my thing whatever i feel like doing. I'll need to stay home because of some of the side effects but i plan to draw closer to the Lord and spend time on spark and i like to play the face book games. Anybody wants to challenge me a game just send me your facebook info and i will make friends with you and challenge you. I must warn you i think my great grandkids are letting Grandma win ! lol!!! It gives me something to do and i just got a puzzle book that has all kinds of puzzles in it so in the evening i can play them sitting with dh. He wants to get me a tablet so i can play the computer games in the living room with him but i feel right now i will spend to much time not talking to him and besides the Lord he is my hero in life and also the paper books suduk and others makes you think more than the computer games. Tomarrow we are having a carry inn at church i will be picking up 50 pieces of chicken from walmart for the church on the way ! They might get 49 ! emoticon Not really ! Have a great weekend and whatever you face in life take it by the horns and go for it because you can't help what you have to go thru but you can control how you handle it . MAKE EVERYDAY A GOOD DAY ! THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT ! REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU AND WILL BE THERE FOR YOU ! IF I CAN HELP YOU IN ANYWAY I AM HERE DAILY ! emoticon If you don't know the Lord he is a prayer away ! Just ask him to forgive you of your sins and give your life to him !

    Good morning,
I will be praying for you..My beloved brother Bobby ( pictures of him in my photos & on front page in the car) he is 59 will be 60 Feb. He went for his 10 year colonoscopy they found fist size cancer, the one Dr told him why he did not come in every 5 years because our grandfather died from that. My brother told him his other Dr. said every 10 years, he said no when it is in the family it is every 5 years. Dr. told him it was growing in there for a long time to get to that size.Then it went through his lymphatic system. he had to take once a month a cancer infusion for 9 months & every day a cancer pill so he was off any cancer medication only 6 months out of every month since Feb. My brother told us to continue to praise the Lord for all he has done & given us. There was people praying all over the United states for him.This past Tuesday he had a blood test to see where his blood markers are. Praise the Lord they are exactly where they are to be. he is in remission. The joy that is with us is unbelievable. We all know the Lord is our Great Physician. We are so blessed.my Mom is 83 & I cannot tell you how happy she is . I will be praying for you in earnest..take care
