Sunday, December 06, 2009

It's Sunday and I am preparing for my bunionectomy on Dec. 11th. Pray for me everyone. I will be laid up for awhile. I have been preparing for it by eating right, taking vitamins and starting today resting up. This will be my 2nd Christmas without mom and my 1st without my grandmother. Christmas is about new life and celebrating it. My mom and grandmother have a new life in heaven without pain and suffering. So, I am happy. I think about the happy times now and am doing fine with it. It takes time. I am on the right medications now. With them being right, the back implant working great, no pain meds except Mobic for arthritis, and have the foot surgery, by spring I will be able to exercise faithfully. I had to have a compressed mamogram the other day and it was fine after all. My aunt on my mom's side, just got through with her radiation for her breast cancer. They think she has radiation pneunomia now. Never heard of it. Have you all? They did get all the cancer out. Does anyone out there know what you can do to bring your white blood cell count back up after radiation? I think positive now and have my head screwed on straight and I am stronger than ever. To everyone on sparkpeople, you can succeed in whatever your goal is as long as you get fighting and don't give up. When it's dreary outside, I turn all lights on in the house. I have a note of my refrig. that says, "Seed, Harvest and God". You probably think I am crazy but for some reason I think God has placed those words in my mind. I have a lot of bills and I think God is going to help give me financial freedom. Enough said. I hope this helps someone and doesn't offend anyone. Just take the pieces you agree with.

  Wow, you've lost 41 pounds and you have Hashimoto's? THANK YOU so much for sharing that! I weighed 215.4 in October 2009 and, after drastically changing my lifestyle with diet and exercise I am now 207 in March 2010. I was getting really discouraged the past month as I lost nothing even though still eating/exercising healthy. But have started to drop again. Thanks for the hope!

    Well from what i gather in this sideways picture, hon you look terrific. Good luck on the surgery and I am praying for you. It will go okay. I'm wondering if you will be put to sleep for that or jsut your leg?

I know the holidays are so hard without my mom, too. I jsut wish we can fast forward to january. It's just not the same anymore.

Hugs
Debbie
