Thanks - for prayers and encouragement... I need spark


Sunday, November 14, 2010

Thank you for all that have been praying for my dad. He is home. He has to go get a few more tests out patient. I am thankful for everyone's thoughts and prayers for him.

I have been very busy with dad in the hospital, school, work,homework... I am so very thankful to be able to be this busy.

I am thankful for all of the advancement in medical care. I went in for my annual physical and I did not get all good news. Being so busy is not good for my kidneys. I have been so exhausted.
One of the worst parts of kidney failure, when you get exhausted, you stay that way, until you can rest rest rest. Well I cannot rest, rest, rest until Thanksgiving week. So I am making sure I get to bed at a decent time no matter what does not get done either in the house or homework.

My exhaustion is why I have not been on spark. I have thought about leaving spark, but I am still striving for health. I may not lose weight, I didnt join spark to lose weight, I joined spark to gain health, hoping along the way I would lose some weight.

I walk everyday, I eat portions, I choose veggies and fruits over the crackers, chips, and other unhealthy choices I used to make. These things are now first nature to me.

I need spark to continue my journey. I need encouragement from my spark friends to keep on keeping on. I need the health tips, trackers, and most of all the teams.

So thank you for being part of my spark journey. I need you too!

  Sounds like you have the idea, just hang in there with the good choices! That's what matters with kidney disease.

    It all comes back to balance -- sometimes we can do a lot on SP, sometimes we need to back off. We're family and we work together. Be gentle with yourself, take time for yourself and minister to your dad. We're here for you! emoticon Vikki

    That is good news about your father. One of the things I have received from this site is the encouragement and support from all of my new Internet friends and can not imagine not logging in every day to see how everyone is doing. Hope you know we're to help if we can and that we do care what happens to you and your family. Hang in there and get that rest. You need to do it for you and your father. emoticon -- Lou

    First of all it is good to know that your father is well enough to come home. I will continue to pray for him. You can be confident that I will also keep you in my prayers.
