Sunday, May 11, 2008


emoticon emoticon HAPPY MOTHERS DAY emoticon emoticon


You Taught Me How to Love You

You taught me how to love you by
The way that you loved me;
And by your unseen sustenance,
To see what you could see.


You gave to me through who you were
The gift of what I am.
Your pride in me is now my pride;
Your faith, my caravan.


Your life does not conclude with death,
Nor will it end with mine,
For all the lives I touch, you touch,
And so on through all time.


~ Nicholas Gordon~

THIS IS DEDICATED TO ALL MY SPARK FRIENDS ON THIS SPECIAL DAY WHO HAVE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LOVE THEM THE WAY THEY HAVE NEEDED TO BE LOVED.

04/24/08...TURN ON YOUR HEART LIGHT

Thursday, April 24, 2008


emoticon Everyone!

Just thought I would share with you something that have been going on with me this week. I have been painting my Apartment, well not me. My special friend Pat, loving nick named by my daughter as Auntie Patty, Peppermint Patty and patty Cakes, LOL...and my daughter Carolynn.

We, have been painting my 1280 SQ Ft place. Hall bath room, Hallway, Kitchen and Dining Room. Just Living Room to go. But all the paint and fumes have made me very sick and I have been chastised to get the heck out of here and go to my room. emoticon

But during the middle of the day, I have sent mel to McDonald's to buy lunch. Their favorite. Ok! Bad Annette! Bad Annette! But I couldn't eat it anyways, for I've had no appetite and I have been feeling very sleepy and fatigued.

When Our day has ended, usually around 5pm, Pat would leave, I would hope in bed, only for Pat would show up and demand that I get up and come out where she would have a cheese cake waiting for me. We have been eating cheese cakes all week long! emoticon

She knows they are my favorites. Sunday we had strawberry, Monday we had chocolate, Tuesday, we had Berry, Wednesday we had Blueberry. Pat and I and Carolynn and Mel only ate one piece then we gave the rest to our neighbors.

I asked Pat, why are you doing this? She said because I wanted too. And when I didn't have a friend in the world, you came along and excepted me for what I was an am. You gave me things, you listened, when you where so sick and couldn't talk nor breathe. My so called friends wouldn't ever do that for me. I was so lonely and was ready to kill myself and it was like you knew and you turned on your heart light and guided me. Now I have fun.

Pat is sick also. She has Diabetes, back problems, needs to lose just a little weight, and some emotional issues. But she is my friend. We are going on a trip together. I'll share that with you at a later time.

I don't ask many things of people. Especially of those whom I don't know. But could you do me a great big favor?

Could you turn on your heart light to just one person here on Sparks who is disabled/ Physically Disabled and let them know that they are someone important and that they too can make a difference here and in there life and someone else's?

We all have a heart light you know. The question is...Will you turn yours on? emoticon

Annette emoticon

P.S. Don't know where to begin? Do a search of teams and go from there. Or just click on my Asthma/COPD Team

    Annette that is a wonderful blog and of course I will seek and find. Sparks may have once been known for only a weight loss site but although that continues to be its mainstay, it is becoming known fbeing an overall health site. That being said you are right, it is here for everyone to come in and learn and grow in spite of disabilities and prognoses which are not always what we want to hear much less live with.

The real issue here is that all of us at some point in our life will come head to head with the aging process or a disease process or an accident..but none of us will stay the same for time immemorial. This is where Sparks can shine for everyone at every different path in their individual life. I appreciate my friends here on spark like yourself who continue to teach and educate by becoming transparent over health issues of every type imaginable from progessive to chronic and both physical and mental. Research and statistics can say a lot. The individual who has the challenge can say so much more.

Thank you for the time and effort you take to continue working on your own journey while sheddling light and bringing first hand knowledge, awareness and education to to the spark family as a whole. You are right. None of us are the same and none of us have the exact same journey.

You are a doll! I will certainly do this! I am reading Rules to my students. It is a book about a girl whose 8 year old brother has autism. It is so hard for her, but she befriends a boy in a wheelchair at OT when she goes with her mom and brother. What a time to send this out. You have already turned on your heart light to more than just this friend. We all know you are one special lady. Thanks for this suggestion/challenge. You're on!!

Much love,

YOU took me in and helped me (via emails and ALOT of information) and when I thought there was NO hope left.. YOU prayed for me and held me up my dear friend and helped me thru a very difficult time I was dealing with.. (hospital financial trauma).... You were a book of information for me... when I KNEW you didnt even 'know me'.. you still reached out to me and I will never forget your acts of kindness to me. :)
YOU gave me hope that if i would give it all to God... HE WOULD (and HE DID) help me. :)
YOU ARE a very special gal and I pray that one day we will meet face to face :) I will bring the cheesecake i promise :)

    You are turely blessed with a very special friend and family. I have been worried about you. But I see that you are in very good hands. When I first saw your picture the first thing I though of was ET phone home. Giggles, sorry. That is one my favorite movies. And I will began to search on some teams. But I must say some times kinds words, and encouragement falls on death ears. I know because I have done it. And felt a little discouraged but I should have thought of things differently. They may have been unable to respond, in pain, depressed. Some times I think we dull our light a little. No more. I will let my light shine. emoticon. Take care and stay from those yuuky, smelly fumes.

04/07/08 WARNING!!!!...TIA !!!!

Monday, April 07, 2008


Sunday at around 1:30 pm (PST) I was sitting in my recliner minding my own business and sipping on my green tea and honey when Wham! Out of the blue I got this real sharp pain in my chest. I automacticly reacted and put my hand on my chest when wham! Another one and another. I knew what it it was. A TIA

I said to my husband Mel would was sitting on the sofa, run and get me my nitro patch quick. He ran to the computer desk because it was closer. I keep them all over the house. But before he could open it and put it on me I told him I was going to throw up.

At that moment, my daughter Theresa and my grandson Danyo came over and asked what was wrong with mom? He said I was having chest pains. Danyo gave me the waste basket because I was starting to throw up. I said I have to go into the bathroom where my daughter followed me into my bathroom in my room.

While sitting on the edge of the tub and head in the toilet I was able to throw up. But my head was pounding so bad. It had been that way for 3 days. I should have known.

When I came out of the bath room, my legs just gave away like a wet noodle and I fell on the floor. I didn't even know I was falling. My mind was in a state of confusion. My daughter ran to me and helped me up. Now sooner than she did than, I fell again. She yelled for her dad to come because something was wrong with me. My left side of my face was feeling numb and part of my hand.

I had a TIA....I have had 3 of them before and I know the systems. But as fast as it came, in half an hour it was gone. They wanted to use my medic alert to call the ambulance but I wouldn't let them. I told them that if I started to feel worse I would go but I know that I had a window of 3 hrs to get treatment. The sooner the better of course.

I used my walker all day. Theresa and Danyo watched me like a hawk. You may ask or wonder what brings a TIA on. Well....alot of things. But for me it was stress and I know it.

You see, I feel that I have to save the world. Solve all the problems at home, still be the perfectionist wife and mother and friend. Make sure everyone is happy. Right now my daughter has one of her myspace friends visiting for 2 weeks and they are typical 19yr and 22yr old kids. If you want to call soaping yourself up and running around out side in the grass slipping and sliding typical for that age.

But they are loud, loud, loud!!! LOL So I must decide to do this...Take that TIA I had and do this with it:

T.....TAKE

I.....IT

A...ANNETTE

Go for it and enjoy my life!!!! All that other madness is still going to be there when it's all said and done.

And right now, my friend Pat and I are planning are great escape! Let you know soon when we decide where and when....

Thanks for listening! You've been great!

Love ya!

Annette

P.S. WHAT IS A TIA? TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK: A WARNING STROKE: MINI-STROKE. TELLING YOU THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG AND TO SLOW DONE!

HAS TO DO WITH THE HEART....

I love you, too, and want you around for a long time. Have fun with your girl-friend. Start catering to you. everyone else can take care of themselves, you know. They need you to just be there.

    Annette you sound like me but talk time for you. I had to learn that the hard way. Girl you know you can talk to me. All you has to do sound the alarm on bellsouth. I sure hope you are alright I have been thinking bout you. Please take care of you. Our families are important to us but if we don't take time for ourselves that will not do the family any good. Take time off what ever you have to do. Let go girl and let someone serve you for change.

I am sorry that happened. I can imagine teenagers running in and out. I have them myself. They come home form school and it is on from their. Praying for you girl!!!!

I am so sorry to hear you had a TIA.. i havent ever experienced that.. but do know the smothering, numbness etc sharp severe pains (which led me to that hospital visit/stay) BUT I am relieved that YOU ARE OK for now and that you had the nitro around to help u... I am also hoping that you and your friend get to have your 'getaway' trip and that your stress level comes down.. I know when i get to go away if only for a couple of days.. it REALLY helps me... to NOT have to be anyones anything.... NO chores... NO errand running.. NO housework etc.... so i am praying that God gives you strength and the opportunity to get to go.
you take care my dear friend ok??

Just remember if you don't put yourself first, they may not have you to care about their happinness or anything else. Sorry to be so blunt. But this is the way it was put to me and it sure got my attention.

(at lest, that is what the doctor told me) Like you, I have little nitro thingies all over the house, in my purse/bag and usually am to late to take them. I found that mine are sorta like a transition stage contraction...it starts out and builds to a peak, then comes down!!!!

I am so thankful for your example to us all. Now as for that worring and stress got give it to Jesus and that trip for relaxation is just what the dr. ordered. You don't have to fix anybody just shine for Jesus with your example and they'll get it and keep hitting the heavens with your prayers for them Gods got those prayers stored up and soon they will be answered and poured out on the ones you love! God Bless you today I am sending a big hug!Oh and if medical attention will add days to your life you should go we only have one life to live! You do not need to let the devil steal 1 day from you! I declare that you will not go home to be with the Lord before your appointed time that Jesus has set and that is final!

3/03/08....Update With DR. P

Thursday, April 03, 2008


Ok, I know you have been waiting on the edge of you seat for an update of my date with Dr. P. Well here goes.

I have been feeling pretty good for quite a while. Eating, walking and all that good stuff except I developed a bad cough at night when I went to bed. No big deal. Plus I had lost 18 pounds in the month of march.

Got there at 2:15pm. and left there at 4pm. Not bad. Weighed me in and showed my weight lost of 18 pounds, nurse was very impressed. Took me back to sit me in the glass booth to start the test. Explain everything. I know everything but still, they have to explain it all over again..UGH!!!

His wife is a sweet heart. And cute to boot. It takes about 45 minutes to do the test and she always tells me that I am doing good and how hard it is on me. I felt that I did really good this time. But something was different. This time, while doing one of the test where you have to breathe normal then take a deep breath in real fast and hold it then blow out real fast, my ribs and lungs where hurting real bad. I had to do it two times. You have to do all the tests two times.

When we were finished, She took me over to the ct room where they they did just 2 scans on me then to the exam room. After that, to my exam room. I said, where's my blood tests? They said he decided not to do them today. I said oh! Didn't want to torture me huh? She laughed.

I waited in there for a while. You always have to wait. Why do we always have to wait? Then he came in?

Hi Annette. How you doing? Fine DR. P. How are you today? Fine. Well, got all your results. Let's start with the ct scans. Ok I said.

Well, they show more scarring. Ok I said. I didn't need to know or heard more. Let's go on to the PFT I said. Well, they have declined quite a bit. I kind of figured even though I have been feeling good. I see that you lost 18 pounds. I'm proud of you. Thanks I said.

So, what are my numbers I asked? Do you want to know numbers? I can tell you but they really don't tell you anything. I always tell you. How about if I tell you this way? How about if I say it has taken 8 months from your life? Ok I said. Fair enough.

What now? Well to be fair to you Annette. I don't want to see you every other month. I want to see you every 6 months. I understand. Unless you are feeling sick then you call and I get you right in. Or you go straight to the ER and have them call me.

I am also taking you off of the spirvia you don't need it. I already did. Good. It's not helping. Can I fly?

Then it happen! I saw the smile. He smiled! No!!! But what I want you to do is take a good vacation. Just go and enjoy your self. You deserve it Annette. You have your portable nebulizer, portable oxygen, sleep machine, you can go!

He smiled! I smiled! See you in october and I left with a peace in my heart....

I didn't leave there feeling that he said I was going to die! I left there knowing that he did all that could, as a DR and specialist could do for me. And we both knew it.

Please do not feel sorry for me. Don't cry for me. Don't pray for me. Pray for me when I am sick. But right now I feel healthy and strong and good. Thank god.

But the one thing that makes me feel really good is this...I have been seeing Dr. P, ok...Dr. Park, for 7 yrs now and he has never cracked a smile. Good, up front, nice dr. and he has never cracked a smiled. But yesterday, I got him to smile! And so did I!!!

Have a wonderful day my friends! I will...

Hugs...Annette

P.S. The coughing at night is a normal process of disease when things are really, really bad. I just take more mucunix.

Congradulations on the weight loss and making Dr. P smile. WAY TO GO!

I usually try to accomodate what anyone asks of me, but I am sorry this is one time, I can't. As a child of God I am commanded to pray without ceasing. So please know that I will gladly continue to pray for you. You are such a wonderful example of the power of faith. Your strength and fortitude are wonderful.

Thanks for keeping us updated. I hope and pray that each new tomorrow is full of health, blessings and love.

    So, Annette, this is not exactly what i was praying for, but i am glad you made Dr. P smile. :) You are an amazing woman. You are correct that we should live each day as if it were our last. I am glad to know you are doing that. I try to remember that and live accordingly as well. Sometimes I procrastinate too much, tho'. I will continue to pray for you--for peace and strength and, yes, healing. I know that we are all eventually healed...here or in GLORY. I love you very much, sweet sister, and pray that God will grant health to you and Kat so that we can get together and go on a mission trip in the future!! That's my prayer, and I'm sticking to it! ;)

Im sending you hugs today my sweet dear friend!!
congrats on your weight loss and like the others here.. I will NEVER stop praying for you... Miracles still happen every day girlfriend!! GOD is the ultimate Healer and I have lived and learned this since this past June with my own daddy... God healed him so so many times.. (still doing so) and brought him back from death 3 different times during these months of his sickness...
Like you... I live by my Faith... we know that noone is promised a tomorrow... so I live each day if it was my last here on this earth... Finally.. at age 46... i realized how precious life is... and how i spend it here on this earth... will be my rewards one day in Heaven...
You have been such an inspiration for me and i am so blessed to know YOU and that God led me to this team...
I still pray daily for you and know that God has our Plan...
As i read your blog... your doctor smiling.. that made my day and now as i type to you.. I too am smiling a HUGE smile for you that you have inner peace and love and strength thru God. :)
love to you my sister in Christ~

    You are one strong woman. You have a very healthy attitude. You are in my thoughts. I don't think God would mind it if we prayed for a healing and continued strength. He can take on the world Annette. He created our universe and everything in it. He can carry you when you need to be carried and filled with continued peace. In His Name. Amen. Love, Jean

  I love your attutude! I have seen people pray and be healed and doctors are baffled i have also sat at the beside of the dying and comforted there families when they are in heaven my 16 year old neighbor got hit by a drunk driver and died a few years back. My conclusion is this none of us has tommorow promised to us! So live your life to the fullest never let a oppourtunity to tell someone you love them or jesus loves them go by. And I rather stand in faith for healing and if so die in faith. One way or the other you will get victory as God sees fit. (In heaven there is no sickness) Your strength and joy has brought a smile to my face. I shed no tears For you today as you have something that many should aim for a great reliance on the Lord Jesus and his inner peace and strength in the midst of your suffering! I know you have also broght a smile to our sweet savior!

4/01/08..My Date With DR. P

Tuesday, April 01, 2008


Just a quickie note to let you all know that tomorrow at 2:15pm (PST) I will be having my date with DR. P. My pulmonary DR.

He will be performing his famous PFT ( Pulmonary Function Test ) to see if my lungs are: stable, decline, or the same. Doing his Ct Scans. I think he loves looking at pictures...LOL And doing his blood work. He loves to torture me. Bad Dr.!, Bad Dr!

After all of that, I will wait in his office, no exam room for him to come in with the ct scans and blood results and PFT results where he will give me the eye. This guy never cracks a smile. I'll look at him. He'll look at me and then say: Well Annette..... And I'll say: Can I fly???

I'll get out of there around 5:30pm and go home and go to bed. It will have been a long day. He is my favorite DR.

Till tomorrow.....

Hugs....Annette

    Today's the big day Annette. I pray that God will soften the doctor's heart and cause him to be more congenial to you today, and that God will give him wisdom in dealing with your medical issues and compassion on you in dealing with any other issues. I pray that the Lord will lead and guide the doctor and nurses in everything that they do and say and that the Lord will bless you and all those you come in contact with today. I will be thinking of you and look forward to hearing from you after your appointment to hear how things went. Love you Annette!

    Dear Annette,
I, too, am praying that your doctor says, "WOW! What have you been doing? You are SOO healthy that I'm amazed and astounded! This must be a work of Almighty God!" with a great big smile!
Love you much,
Melly Anne
