Melissa was off Saturday, Sunday and Monday. John and I did go to the Farmers Market (flea market) Saturday morning. We walked around, went inside and ate at our favorite place, walked outside more. I did pick up a couple of things for Ebay but not much. Sunday, Marty stopped by and cut our grass which John is still hesitant to do. <BR> Yesterday was a very busy day for me. Mike and Nancy stopped by in the morning. Mike went with John to help a fr... Tue, 28 Jun 2016 04:17:55 EST 6/24/2015 Am I wrong? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188637 Yesterday John brought up that he forget to tell me that his brother in law asked to borrow my car. His son is getting married on Saturday and Mike feels his truck will not make the long drive. I told him to tell him no, I do not want to be responsible if anything happens. Mike can drink a lot, Nancy (his wife, John's sister) does not but has a hard time driving at night. I just don't want to be responsible if anything happens and I am also tired of John and I being used. <BR> Am I wrong to f... Fri, 24 Jun 2016 06:44:11 EST Wednesday 6/22/2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187554 I called the Doctor's office on Monday, just to find out he is out for the week. I kind of felt bad because I let John (assistant at Doctor's office) know exactly how I felt. I let him know that I gave the Doctor the papers (6 pages which I filled out 4) to the Doctor on May 10th. I also let him know that this has been making my anxiety and depression a lot worse and I am not getting paid anything at all. I asked if anyone else could handle this and of course he said there was not. When this ... Wed, 22 Jun 2016 11:11:36 EST Friday 6/17/2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6184443 Thank you to everyone for their prayers, hugs, and love. I am doing better than I was. Wednesday was a little rough. I had a phone interview with the 3rd party for SS for my functions (what I can do, can't do etc.). It took 45 mins. and was so glad when it was finished. <BR> The past couple of days and nights Lilly has been here. She is such a love. I have also started back on my smoothies in the morning and really think it is helping me. <BR> Yesterday we had rain, heavy rain at times al... Fri, 17 Jun 2016 07:22:14 EST 6/15/2016 Hoping for a better day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6183167 Yesterday was not a good day for me. I took my vitamins, medications. I decided to stay home and not go with John to Cowtown and try to get some things done at home. Not so, every time I bent down I got extremely dizzy, then the crying started. The anxiety and depression came back full force, most of the day I spent crying or sleeping. I did call the insurance company, but had to leave a voice message. John thinks I should go to the Doctor's and get all my papers and find another Doctor, but... Wed, 15 Jun 2016 03:56:25 EST Tuesday 6/14/2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6182569 We had Lilly here Friday, Saturday and part of Sunday. She loves being here. Yesterday we watched Lilly and Grayson for a couple of hours. Lilly loves her brother but at times she is so jealous of him. I try to explain that he needs more attention because he cannot talk, walk and does not really understand yet. I called the school Lilly will be going to kindergarten, got a lot of questions answered. Melissa plans on picking up information from her Doctor then going to the school to register h... Tue, 14 Jun 2016 08:28:37 EST Friday 6/10 busy, hurting today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6180750 Yesterday morning John and I went to the flea market. We walked all around outside, then went inside and stopped at our favorite place to eat. After we ate we walked around inside, then walked around outside and picked up a couple of things for ebay and Lilly. <BR> Melissa came over early with Grayson, stayed a while then left for work. Pat's grandmother is watching Grayson and we have Lilly this weekend due to Melissa and Pat working night shifts. Melissa had picked up a bubble maker but... Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:10:43 EST 6/7/2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6178736 John's Doctor Appointment follow up went well. The Doctor was very happy John was doing so well. He let John know he can have certain foods, but to remember everything in moderation. Of course, no fried foods, pre-made foods or fast foods. He answered our questions and John will follow up in 3 months. <BR> After the appointment we stopped at Home Depot. I picked up more lavender, a hanging basket, radish, beet seeds and marigolds. We then went to AC Moore (craft store) and dollar store, pi... Wed, 8 Jun 2016 02:32:06 EST 6/6/2016 Busy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6177356 Yesterday was basically a rainy, cloudy day. The storms rolled in around 5:30 pm. Melissa picked up Lilly around 2:30, so I did lay down and got a couple hrs sleep. I feel so bad cause Lilly never wants to leave here. <BR> Today John has a follow up Doctor's appointment at 9:30 am. . We have a lot of questions to ask on what he can do, can't do, food, etc. Then I need to go to the post office (sold an item on ebay). I also want to stop at the local craft store and pick up more paint and pa... Mon, 6 Jun 2016 06:59:18 EST This past weekend, this week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6174942 First I want to wish my daughter a very Happy Birthday. Melissa turned 26 yesterday, can't believe how fast time flys. She is the best daughter in the world and has given me two beautiful grandchildren. <BR> Seems everything has been a blur since last Friday afternoon when I had to take John to ER. The good news is he is home since Monday He says he feels better and he does look better. They put 2 stents in him and did not have to put a 3rd one in. He is on several medications and also vit... Thu, 2 Jun 2016 07:12:02 EST Thank you and updates http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6172323 Thank you all so much for your hugs and prayers. John is still in the hospital but doing better. Yesterday afternoon he was moved to a regular room. The blood results showed elevations so they did an ultra sound on his stomach last night. They are still monitoring his heart, vitals, etc. He had 2 stents put in and will be on medication for the rest of his life. No more smoking or drinking. Not sure if they will release him today or tomorrow. I am actually hoping they keep him today, tonight ... Sun, 29 May 2016 08:14:00 EST Prayers needed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6171740 Yesterday afternoon I took John to ER due to him having heaviness in his chest and numbness in both his arms. They kept him and he is the Cardiac Short Stay Unit at the hospital. <BR> This morning they are going to do a stress test. <BR> Please say a prayer for him. <BR> <BR> Thank you Sat, 28 May 2016 06:03:02 EST Novena to St. Joseph for employment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6170529 I plan on saying this every morning so that John finds a job soon. <BR> <BR> Saint Joseph, foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ, spouse of the blessed Virgin Mary the Mother of God, powerful protector of the Holy Church, to you do I raise my heart and hands to implore your powerful intercession. You searched nothing else in this world but the glory of God and the good of others. You gave yourself completely to the Savior, it was cause for joy to pray, to work, to sacrifice yoursel... Thu, 26 May 2016 05:44:23 EST Friday 5/20/2016 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6167425 Made up my mind no matter what I was going to get outside and get some walking in. It was so nice Friday and the sun was out so John and I went to the Farmers Market around 7:00 am. A lot of the vendors were still setting up so we walked around outside a lot. Bit by bit we did find some things for us, Ebay and Lilly. We also went inside and went to our favorite place to have something to eat. I had vegetable rice which was so good. Afterwards we went back outside and walked more. We got home ... Sat, 21 May 2016 09:40:03 EST Still sick http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6166030 Still have the sinus infection. Called the Doctor and he wants me to get an x-ray and did not prescribe more antibiotics. Lilly and now Grayson also are sick with the sinus infection. Really feel bad for them. Seems everyone is getting it. We have had so much rain and the tree and grass pollen has been high here for some time. The sun needs to come out and dry things up. <BR> The interview with the 3rd party for LTD took about an hour and a half. The person was really nice but again very ... Thu, 19 May 2016 05:29:50 EST Did you know? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6164643 The other day I went to one of the web sites that I order things from. They always show a box to put in a coupon code in. So I decided to open another tab in my browser and search for the web site coupons 2016. One site had coupon codes for some of the things that I had ordered. I wrote down the codes and went back to the site where I was ordering and I was able to put in several coupon codes and get discounts which I think was pretty cool. I saved around 22.00 dollars and got free shippi... Tue, 17 May 2016 07:29:43 EST Sinus Infection and updates http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161903 Been fighting a sinus infection for over a month now. Doctor gave me two prescriptions, but I think with the pollen being so high and all the rain it has not really been helping. Also been watching Lilly and Grayson in between their work shifts and both of them are sick. That does not help either. Going to call the Doctor to see if I can get more antibiotic. <BR> Still waiting to hear about the LTD from the Insurance company. Also been playing phone tag with the person (third party) for ...

I waited approx. 2 1/4 hrs which did not help. I gave him the papers for the insurance company and will call today to see if he completed them. I am also fighting a sinus infection so he gave me 3 prescriptions. He also checked my neck and gave me another prescription and said to do the neck exercises. Neck and back are still not better, still only able to do things for a short period of time, then have to lay down....

It was nice and certainly different, lol. The weather was not too bad so John had Lilly outside for a while. Lilly loves riding her bike but the sidewalks here are terrible. John took Lilly to the store and got her the gear she needs to wear to ride the bike. He also picked up Easter Baskets for her and Grayson. We also colored eggs and had an egg hunt for her.

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 04:04:30 EST Sometimes plans get changed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6118711 Was planning on going to Farmers Market on Saturday but plans changed when Melissa, Lilly and Grayson came to the door at 7 am. Melissa had to drop Pat off at work so instead of going back home they stopped here. So I got to spend the day with them. Sunday John and I went to Farmers Market before it started to rain. Walked around outside, then inside the market, then outside again. Found some really good deals especially a Doc McStuffins play station for Lilly. She has been a big help to Dad....

I gathered clothes, stripped the bed and started on laundry. Got the cats taken care of and took care of the dishes that were left in the sink. Then I did my usual of logging into web sites I check every morning. I received an email from a fellow ebayer and he described one of my items which is rare. I sent him a message back thanking him and changed the description. Come to find out it is a rare Dresden plate ...

Oh well its quiet time for me, lol. I did get all of Melissa's laundry done. The mobile home that we are looking for Melissa was being held by the bank and the realtor was able to get it down to 25,000. So John and Melissa will be going to his office with a check and the paperwork and praying they can get it. John and his brother in law are still out of work so they can do all the repair work.

The weather here is really cold so I decided to stay home and try to get some things organized. Now with Grayson coming over more we have things like baby food, treats etc. So I started in the kitchen. I got 3 cabinets re-organized and also re-organized the pantry. I also got a couple of loads of laundry done before I started to get pain in my neck and back. I took a tramadol and 2 ibuprofen for the pain. Then I was able to...

We went up the road to the shopping center and first went to Bath and Body Works. It had been a long time since Mel and I went there.

They brought me in the back and I changed into the gown and slippers they gave me. The nurse came over and said it was time for the intravenous. She picked my left arm and then said hmmm I don't like the looks of that. She kept the needle in then put another one down around my wrist, then took the other needle out and put a bandage on it. After a while I walked back to the room where they did the shot. The Doctor and nurses were so nice and the D...

The place I went to was so packed at 7:30 am. I have to say everyone that worked there was extra nice. They were concerned about my heart beating fast and even asked if I had seen a heart Doctor. Lord I hope nothing is wrong there and I think it was because I was worried about the procedure. The Doctor said everything looked good, now just waiting for the biopsy report. He also wrote out a prescription for Budesonide EC which I took back in 2007 which helped....
