So it took some of the guilt off me. <BR> AND today is another day. Onward and upward, one step at a time, keep moving forward (you know the rest) <BR> K... Mon, 14 Aug 2017 10:55:13 EST Aug.13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6399377 I have been doing so good with my steps this month getting at least 10,000 a day, but yesterday I was feeling awful and barely did 4,000. I was couching it. <em>39</em> <BR> It really does make you feel so terrible the next day when you broke your streak. <BR> <BR> Today I plan on doing 10,000 plus the extra to make up for yesterday. <BR> I can do it. It is only 16,000 or so steps. <BR> <BR> Bill is still doing the resting with the eye. <BR> He is now on moisture drops for the eye as we...

So he has been doing that. <em>102</em> <BR> He really keeps it closed much of the time anyway since he can only see light out of it. <BR> <BR> He has a bit of the eye lid stitched closed again and it seems to heal better under the closed part. <BR> It feels a lot better so maybe the 3rd t...

He has an appointment tomorrow at 2:00 pm so we shall see. <BR> <BR> I tracked 284,080 steps , 110.07 miles for July. <BR> I am determined to get at least 10,000 a day or more. <BR> I also plan on Yoga, every day in August. <BR...

Sat, 2 Jul 2016 12:25:23 EST The results, I guess http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161523 I am sorry I didn't write about it yesterday but by the time I got home and all I have been so tired. <BR> They did another mammogram on the right side and then an ultrasound on the right side only. <BR> So when I got done they said I have a complex cyst and they have to check it again in 6 months. <BR> I got a letter from the first one I had done and I am glad I got it after I had the second one done because it was scary.It said my breast are Heterogeneously Dense which makes it hard to read... Thu, 12 May 2016 13:17:50 EST Feeling sorry for myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6156943 I got a call from the doctor's office this morning saying there was an abnormality with the mammogram result and they made an appointment for me for Tuesday at 2:0 for more tests. <BR> I know it can probably be nothing but I am a nervous wreck. I know I have had a few minor problems in the past that have turned out good so I am going to have to have faith that this will to. <BR> <BR> Please say a prayer that everything comes back good? <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/d...

The doctor said it looking better and he reduced the Prednisolone drops to 1 time a day. Everything else stayed the same. <BR> He still has the glue in (which is good) and he showed the blood vessels going into the green of the eye and he said it looks like it is healing nicely. <BR> Of course we are hoping that the glue comes out, the hole is closed and he will have sight in the eye. (If it is not too scarred.) <BR> So that is the update. We go back...

The doctor said she thinks the eye is doing good and thinks it isn't viral or bacterial. (any more anyway) <BR> She advises to let it go for a month like it is (with the glue plug) and see if his eye will keep healing. Hopefully it will heal from within and the plug will come out with no hole. BUT if it keeps losing the plug and keeps perforating she sees no reason why a transplant wouldn't work. <BR> She also said if it was something bacterial or viral ...
