Thank you all for your support, encouragement and kind words. I do appreciate these.

Nothing has really changed from yesterday's blog but I do feel more positive after reading all of your comments.

I am still here and plan to stay, which is a real positive as before I would have given up. I would have thought too tired and not worth the effort. Now the thought is it is only a couple of months until next year and I should be over everything by then so I will concentrate on that.

I am worth the effort. I have decided that I will do what I can and be proud of it. Not to think about what I have done in the previous months and get upset because I can not do this at the present.

I really need to get over the next few months and then get on with the rest of my life.

As I have said I am staying, I am not giving up, this is just a little detour that I need to get over.

I need to take care of me and put me first., accept if I can't exercise that day, so be it.

I don't need the extra stress. BUT I WILL KEEP UP THE HEALTHY EATING.

Yes, I have eaten what I should not have but I have adjusted everything else in the day. I have not had a blow out for a long time. I am keeping my protein, sodium under more control now. Got to be happy with that.

On a positive side I looked after Brennen again today for about 5 hours and got to say he is easier than the other three older grandchildren. His parents went to a wedding.

But rest day tomorrow.

    I read your previous blog too and thought I would comment here. You are such an inspiring woman...what you have to go through in the future and you have such a good attitude about it all.
I just injured my foot-2nd injury this year and when I read blogs like this- it helps me realize it is just a detour. We won't give up no matter what life throws at us. I have just adjusted my eating to less, since I can't exercise like normal. I just do my chair exercise-less with the bad foot of course. But, the rest of the body can't just stop!
It is nice you have your grandchildren to keep your mind off things and to feel the love and happiness they bring! Keep on keepin' on. Once you have the surgery, I hope all things will improve and you will continue on your journey full speed ahead. Take it one day at a time!
Thank you so much for the goodie and nice note. Glad I could help...I love my sparkfriends and will do what I can to help in any way.

    (((((HUGS))))) dear Wendy. IT is so hard to wait, wait, wait when you just want to move on. I don't blame you. Glad you got to take care of little Brennen. That would be a ray of sunshine in the day!

Hang in there, sweetie. You are strong.

    That's my girl Wendy. Glad that you are feeling
so positive. You will be fine. It is so nice to be able
to babysit the grandies but make sure you get lots
of rest and look after yourself now. BTW, did the
renovations finish? Have a great Sunday tomorrow.
emoticon You are doing great and remember
to take heart that we all care and that we are all
here to support one another. emoticon

    We are all here for one another Wendy Dear, this is all part of the spark family ..
We support one another and by doing that, it relieves stress not only in the person we are supporting, but funnily enough, also within ourselves ..
Glad you had a more gentle day with Brennen .. He will really know his grandmother. Babies tend to remember the feel of your arms around them ..
Sending you all love, hugs and kisses .. susie xxx emoticon emoticon
