Anniversaries, Lupus, Weight Gain, Life.

Monday, October 07, 2013

We just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary!
We got away to Monterey,& Carmel CA. Just spending time together was the best.
I wanted to do a lot of walking, but my Lupus made it too difficult. I am so thankful we brought my wheel chair so we could still get around even if I couldn't walk the whole trip.
I am so grateful for my wonderful hubby. He is such a blessing to me.
I didn't get to take all my meds, including my Lasix, and potassium so I am up 7lbs. emoticon
It is such a struggle, I don't want to make excuses.
Today I am moving slowly, but I am hoping to be able to use my bike again tomorrow.
The ups and downs are challenging, but I can't effect change if I don't try.
The good news is, this is a new day I will move as much as I can, eat right, and continue on in this life quest for better health.

    Happy Anniversary and as you know lupus will flare its ugly head but there are days that you can do and look for those days and do what you can. Don't beat yourself up over something that you can not control.

    To be blunt.... Lupus SUCKS!! I'm sorry it got in the way of the walking you wanted to do. Monterey and Carmel are so beautiful and there is so much to see. I'm glad you had a good time despite the Lupus flares.

    Happy Anniversary Dee! So sorry you weren't feeling well for so much of the time, but so glad you got to get away for a while! That's a beautiful part of the country.
Feel better and get your strength back. You're an encouragement to everyone with your positive attitude and Faith!

  Keep moving. My after surgery mussels said no but I am so glad I kept moving. Hope you are getting to eat better. Water helps also.
