Doctors and buying "The Spark"

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Well my husband and I went to the doctors today. I was lucky in that my ears do not look infected but I do have a swollen gland. Doctor put him on antibiotics and cough medicine, I get benedryl and no cardio for 3 days. This to see if the dizziness goes away on its own. Since I have a doctors appoint a week from Friday with my Rhuematologist if I am not better by then, than he could put me on something.
After this we drove up to Brea to buy my book at Barnes & Noble, only to find that the bookstore he drove me to was a Borders. We called information at this point and found had we got the other direction from the doctors office it was than 10 or 15 mins away. Jeff took the long way around with what should have been a 20 - 25 min drive back took us closer to an hours.
Now he is hungry again, so he see's a McDonalds drive thru in the parking lot. I say just drop me off, I'll buy my book and meet you out front. I did try one fry, I rarely eat at McD's but I haven't tried the fries since they supposely changed the way they make them a few years back. Taste the same to me, too much salt and oil for me.
We called the pharmacy on the way home so we can stop and pick up his medication. Doctors faxed it over around 2:15pm now it is 4pm but no it's not ready yet and could we pick it up in an hour. Which just means they haven't checked their fax machine all afternoon.
Why do they bother to have the doctors do it this way if they are not gonna even have the stuff ready. Guess who gets to go out in a while an pick it up, ME! The traffic is just really bad around my house at this time of day up until after 7pm.


Housecleaning day

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I did my house cleaning today, walked the dogs and did a 3 mile workout tape. Still not feeling up to par, so husband had me make doctor appointments for both of us tomorrow. He keeps complaining that he has pnemonia but if he would just stop smoking a lot of his lung problems would clear up (I think). I still get dizzy with certain moves so hoping it is just an ear infection and the doc gives me some antibiotics.


bootcamp and a cold

Monday, January 11, 2010

I still have that head cold and now I get dizzy when I move in certain directions or laying down. I think maybe some kind of ear infection. Was hard to do the bootcamp video (the bonus) cause I just couldn't get my balance. Sandy called today and I was glad to be able to help her out in finding a place to take her Mom for a haircut. She say Bala did a great job and her Mom was real happy.


Lazy Day

Monday, January 11, 2010

I did the bootcamp video, walked my dogs and walked around the market for 35 mins or there about. I read all of the Sunday paper which I haven't been doing for the last couple of weeks. I got on the scale this morning and I was 184.5 pds but I am gonna do it again tomorrow to see if it changes at all. I don't think I got enough cardio in today but I did that almost 9 mile walk yesterday so I am not going to worry about it too much.
I seem to lose very slowly and I am pretty sure it is the prenidsone, celcept, nurontine and probably some other medication I am on. They all make you gain weight! emoticon
Oh well, I will just keep trucking on. emoticon


Santa Ana River Walk and Samra's 25th birthday!

Sunday, January 10, 2010

My friend Irend and I walked along the Santa Ana River today. It was so beautiful and warm. Irene had to walk slow because she has a hairline fracture on her knee to we had to take a lot of breaks. What should have been about a 2 hr walk was closer to 4 with all the breaks.
Today is also my daughter's 25th birthday, I will call her in a few mins. because I always talk to her at her birth time of 9:48pm PST. I don't care if she lives in OK that is when I will call her.
James (her partner) and her went up to Tulsa today to do some shopping. I hope they had good weather and no snow. Cold she can handle pretty well, it the blizzards she hates.
My dog Lucy is doing well, still going for doggy walks but gets tired more easily and is drinking a lot of water and losing weight. She is a trooper!
