Ups and downs

Friday, February 26, 2010

I am very glad to report that my son has purchased his first car. I am so relieved that I will not have to be carting him around anymore. I love him, he is a great guy, and I like spending time with him, but to not be on one less persons schedule will be divine!!

My daughter's relapse scares are gone. The doctors have ran all sorts of tests, and everything has come back negative for cancer. Now we just need to figure out what it is that is giving her the headaches. The doctors want to wait to see if it is some sort of virus that may pass before we dig deeper. At this point, that sounds like an excellent idea to me.

My cancer scare is also over. The doctor thinks it is just scar tissue and I need to "get used to it" and try being on a low fiber diet as much as possible. Which totally sucks for someone trying to lose weight. But the doctor is confident if I go low fiber as much as possible, I will be more comfortable. Needless to say, I am not a real happy camper and am trying to figure all of this out, to be both comfortable and at a healthy weight. I am in so much discomfort most of the time it hurts to move around as much as it does to sit still so I haven't exercised in awhile, other than parking in the last parking spot in the parking lots, and always taking the stairs. But that does seem to be working, I am down to a size 12 jeans, and that does make me happy.

The little stuffed puppy I ordered to keep me company isn't quite doing the trick. I want a live little companion, and my husband has agreed, but has asked me to wait a bit before I bring home my new baby. I am trying, but I must admit, I am weaker by the day. Did you know they have a next day puppy web site you can find your furry baby on? emoticon That means, I could still do my school work and get my puppy delivered! Now just to convince my husband that is as cool as I think it is, and I will be all set!

    Cindy, it sounds like a lot of good things have come your way. Your son getting his own car, all the cancer scares gone. Hopefully things are now headed the right way for you!

    Wow, lady, you have had a lot going on. Keep on keeping on and it will continue to get better. I wonder if there is a Spark Team that might help with the low fiber issue? There seems to be one for just about everything.

    I am so happy that you will be getting a puppy, animals make everything better, although this morning I was tempted to throw my cats out the door but I will right more about that on my blog. I always like going to the animal shelter to find new babies. My best dogs have been strays and rescues.

    Have a great weekend.
