Taking a break

Thursday, June 12, 2014

I am not happy to do this but it has come down to an absolute necessity. A year or two back a blood test showed that my red an white cells, also platelets were quite low. Nothing was suggested for me to do to change the results. This last test I had last Friday showed that the white cells are lower yet. I did read some foods may be helpful so I will work on that until and after going to take another test.
I can't handle all this and try to keep up with all of my dear friends here on Spark. You are part of my family and will be in my prayers.
Being in my power chair makes everything harder and longer to do. This leaves me with all kinds of jobs that need to be attended to and the stress is adding to my feeling overwhelmed emoticon . I hope that while on leave I will get more organized and find out about the multiple health problems that plague me. I am sorry this is sounding like "doom's day" emoticon I KNOW I have faith that God will provide in His time, a way that will bring me back to better health and I will return, I need you all!!
I will be checking my mail each day, my children do keep track of me, and I will see how you all are doing, but will not be sending out mail except to related family. Sending much love to you all, hold down the fort, help one another, and be happy emoticon . Your Spark sister, Betty emoticon emoticon

    I pressed I like this blog not because of the sad contents. I'm so sorry to hear about your health. My BF's mother has leukemia so I understand the blood cells and platelet count subject. Betty, you will be in my thoughts and prayers. You take all the time you need to get well. All of us here at Spark People care about you! Love and Hugs!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
My kitties emoticon are thinking about you too!

    Betty, It is wise to know when to step back and re-evaluate, re-organize and re-prioritize.
I will be keeping your health issues in prayer and trust the Lord to give the doctors wisdom for your care.
You are a blessing to so many here on Sparkpeople!!! You will be missed, but we will look forward to your return to hear you are refreshed and renewed!!
God Bless You!

    Oh, Betty. I sure hope you get some answers soon.

I totally understand the need to prioritize and cut out some things. You don't need Spark People to be just another pressure or stress in your life.

I'll keep you in my prayers and you make sure and let us know when you're feeling better.
