Family Health Problems

Saturday, March 05, 2011

So we've been going through a lot with everyone being "down" lately with something. We were all sick with a flu type bug for a couple of weeks. Then we had some issues with my granny. Then my mom started having severe chest pains for a couple of days. It got so bad we were headed to the ER. It went away for the night though so she waited until the next morning. They think it wasn't anything serious but she's been hooked up to monitors to make sure. Since she has heart arrythmia issues or something. It's just been a little scary seeing them go through that.

It makes me more motivated though to really get back to getting healthy again. I hope my mom decides to start at least go walking with me sometimes.

    Hope your family is all feeling better. Your Mom should have every test possible, cause the heart is nothing to fool with. Walking is great Jenni and I sure hope you can do that with your Mom, it will be a special time together and good for both of you, Mind, Body and Spirit.

    Jen - emoticon We've all had the crud/ flu/ something in the family for a month nasty stuff, hard to shake. My 4 yerar old granddaughter has a touch of it now.

    Seem so many of my Spark friends have been off to a rocky start this year but glad you are ready for a fresh restart@

    My daughter has fibromyalgia too so I know what you go through there.

    She is working towards a fresh start with eatting and exercise again.

    For her cutting out the refined carbs and getting regular cardio and strength exercise really does help the fibro...she says then at least on days she 'aches all over' she has a good excuse ( exercise) rather than just the fibro!

    So glad you are in our Ninja 'Unit' next round....I'm excited to see what progress we make this round!

    Let's gooooo for it!
