I am using the library computer and only have 15 minutes left so going to try to get as much written as possible and hope I can add pics from home. I am feeling pretty good. I now need to exercise and exercise my arms (lightly) to regain mobility. My surgery for defibrillator went well. I have a defribillator / pacemaker combo. It monitors my heart, weight, blood pressure, can tell when too much sodium, my activity so if I am not moving, my doctor knows...wow, that is just totally like wow and dang...no cheating for me...ha. Maybe as the stress goes away, I can drop some pounds. Now that would be just totally awesome! I still have my slow poke self and breathing issues, but overall, feeling good. I can't change my sick heart, but I can do all I can to keep it stabilized.
My biological daughters came for 10 days. I saw them off on Saturday and so sad. Saw my grandbaby and loved every minute of it.
My step daughter that lives with us, well, she regressed to a 13 year old and was so mean to me and well, she ended up spending a lot of time in her bedroom with her two kids while we were all out having fun. She really had a hard time sharing me. Her dad brought her back to reality check.... "I am not going to be nice again as this will be the last time I will say you better be nice to mom and change that attitude or I will be NOT Letting mom give you the car." Mom will keep it and you will be without. Well, with that said, attitude changed immediately as she knows once it gone it gone. There is no pushing past that point.
My twins and I and couple of there friends and grand baby had a MARVELOUS TIME! We did Seattle - the wheel was fun, we walked the waterfront, did lunch. Met up with their cousin. Day of arrival we met with aunt and cousin for lunch from their side of family and had an awesome vegan thai buffet lunch of total health. We then went to park and then back to cars and home. For my birthday, my husband, twin daughter, grand baby and I went to Snoqualmie Falls and Casino for King Crab Legs Buffet and it was totally awesome.
Really enjoyed all of the time with my daughters. I was very selfish and kept them mostly to me but hey I bought the tickets and it was MY TIME. I am going over Christmas to AZ to visit them and my mom. So happy. My husband and I leave soon for Vegas to see his mom and brother and father-in-law. I am little nervous about flying but going to do it. I love living in Westport. End of August we will no longer have apartment. My step daughter will be independently on her own. She is in school full time getting good grades and now will graduate in 2016. She is learning to be a momma to her babies and doing pretty well too.
I am trying to keep my swelling down. I got cudos from my heart doctor for all of my activity. They were very pleased to see all my activity. They happy I am not just sitting since I got defib! :-) It has picked up 3 events...nothing major. It has been stable since I got it. Now to let things just go well!!! I miss all of my spark friends. Will be glad when my internet access is a little better at Westport. Even in Fed way I am suppose to have good and it sucks... Oh well.
Today I got my teeth (4 cavities on top small filled) and I got my gap closed and now I have a pretty smile.
