My wife, partner, lover, best friend Sherry collapsed at home in the bathroom in front of me, and despite my calling 911 and starting CPR, her body just wasn't strong enough. She collapsed in an awkward position in btwn the tub, wall, and toilet. I asked if she could hear me, and she looked at me and said yes. I went to get the phone. As I was on the phone with emergency, I was pulling her out to get her in a position to start CPR. Stuff had alr...

Thurs she collapsed at home and had a heart attack. Despite doing cpr and calling 911, her brain went without oxygen too long and never regained consciousness. I wish the tears would slow down... I don't know how to function, breathe, without her... RIP sweetie. I will love you forever and ever, amen. <em>247</em> <em>212</em> <em>212</em> <em>220</em> Mon, 10 Mar 2014 13:00:08 EST Random questions abt me :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5181190 The names I go by: <BR> Jennifer <BR> Jenn <BR> sweetie <BR> <BR> Three places I've lived in the past: <BR> Yardley, Pa <BR> Altoona, Pa <BR> only 2, sorry! <BR> <BR> Three sports I have played: <BR> oy...aside from school sports in gym class? none <BR> <BR> Three things I love to watch: <BR> my kitties (3 of them.) <BR> Investigation Discovery (addict!) <BR> anything medical <BR> <BR> Three places I have visited: <BR> West Germany <BR> Canada <BR> many states as a kid when my fami...

So we're wanting to move, & needing it, in a way, because living on the 2nd floor is just too hard anymore, esp for my better half. I went looking online in the general area & emailed the guy a few times. It's 1st floor, they ALLOW cats (we have 3), it's just a deposit up front & a little hike per mth in addition to rent. We checked out the pics, LOTS of room. The rent basically covers all but electric (obviously not phone, cable). It's newer, modern, & in a nice...

Sat, 31 Dec 2011 21:49:25 EST Trying to be positive. :/ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4629157 So, as the title suggests, I'm trying to stay positive. I'm still unemployed, waiting for the next wave of unemployment comes through. I had filled out the papers & sent them in only to call & find out I was never sent the original papers to actually apply. My car ('04 Cavalier with a whole 34,000 miles on it.) has still been acting up (it stalls when I'm stopped. at lights, stop signs, or even just as I'm waiting to make a turn.) I had it in the shop (the Chevy garage, cause they know the ...

I bought myself a Polar watch the bronze FT4 one. Barely fits, literally have it hooked on the last hole on the band. I went out yesterday & ran some errands... no big deal. BUT, this time was DIFFERENT. I saw who I've become. At one point, I looked down at my feet and also saw my reflection in a store window so of course, it was the WHOLE reflection.) I used to hold my stomach in, esp when I walked, to help ...

I can't stop crying, & my heart & head are so heavy I can barely stand it. Not even a year ago she was diagnosed with liver cancer, & even after chemo txs....It's so not fair. Yes, I know life isn't fair. She had the biggest heart & soul of anyone I know. She raised 2 wonderful, loving sons. I'm trying to take solace in knowing she wasn't alone when sh epassed... she had frineds & her girlfriend with her (& maybe others.) She tau...

Things have gotten a bit insane here... one of my aunts has fallen & broke 5 ribs, & cracked L1& L2 (no surgery needed, thank god). She ended up doing ok till her colon got a leak in it & she needed emergency surgery.. they took part of it out, & had her on a vent. I think she's off of it now, however, she's in renal failure. My partner had shoulder surgery again. She had it at the end of Sept (yes, this year) because s...

It's the year for ME, for me to take care of myself, to get healthier, fitter, & because of these, I'll get happier. I'm coming off a bad week. I didn't exercise at all, & because of it, gained weight. But, instead of turning it in on myself, blaming myself, making excuses, & belittling myself about it, I'm taking a WHOLE new perspective. Yea, I gained weight... so WHAT??? I can lose it again, no big deal. <em>20</em> Does it s...

I'd like to follow the meals on the nutrition tracker, here's my issues. I'm needing it for 2 people, & we're both on a limited budget for food. Those of you who follow the meals that are listed... how do u do it? I'd love to be able to just print it out (& I know I can substitute things.) & go to the store & get what I need.

Things here... well, they pretty much suck. Found out a dear friend of mine has cancer & may not make it to Christmas. I'm in shock, denial... want to go see her (she lives a good distance away.) But I don't have the money, & she may not want me too anyway. <BR> I feel like my relationship with my mother (both parents are still alive, thank god, esp with mom beating breast cancer.... now my dad has to get a lump removed from his neck on the 20th.. same...

I've been participating in challenges (go butterflies!). I've been exercising like, EVERY day! Who am I?? Where's the old Jennifer? I walk with my WIO for my Wii & I LOVE it, I am excited to do it everyday, & I find myself wanting to walk just one more minute or one more mile than the day before to see if I can get a car, apartment, etc on the game. At first, I thought, how can I get excited abt THIS? Now, I think, how did I think that? LOL I am al... Sat, 25 Sep 2010 15:44:08 EST Slow & steady...

I feel better abt that, but it's like I'm still walking on eggshells. They didn't contact my brother, so that's good. I just feel like I've been SOOOOOO violated, & that's the last thing I need, u know??

She calls me & verifies what I already knew.. that i never asked to put her as a co signer or guaranteed payer for a loan. She also tells me that they called her this afternoon, before they called me.. & they called her on her cell while she was at work (shes a dr). I apologized & shes not mad, more annoyed & bleeped off that people can do this & get away with it. She suggested tomorrow I call the big company & see what info they have...

A guy calls me, saying that I got a loan earlier this year from some postal company of a large amt & they're taking legal action on me, charging me with 3 things , like check fraud, theft by deception, & something else. This guy had my social, my bday, my email, my PO box (just where I get my mail), he had my ip addy, etc. He also had the last 4 # of my one bank acct #. I asked him for the # for this place, & he said no, b/c it was in ...

More like, same brand, but different sub brand LOL. I started the skin test today, & also did a hair test (esp since it hasn't been that long since the last time!)... It is going to look awesome!

Well, I'm going through all the questions, & get to the weight one... it talks about how people who are too thin (not a prob!) or too heavy can be refused because of their weight. I'm thinking "crap!" So, I go to the chart on the site, & find my height 5'10"... the weight is a good 15 pounds above whet I weigh. ::::BIG sigh of relief, although not happy that my weight is kind of close.....:::::: I continue with the questio...

That was it. I have been on unemployment, focusing on me, physically, mentally, etc. I'm thinking about getting back to work. I'm not going to jump right in, but I'd love to do hospice. I emailed the company just now, mentioning my app ( didn't mention that they still have the job openings on their site!) LOL We'll see ...

Today I did a bunch of errand running, including what seemed like a million trips up & down the stairs to my apt. (Ok, it was at least 6!!) But, I did 15 minutes on my elliptical. Mon & Tues are usually pretty hectic days for me, so I may just have them for rest days.... we'll see.

It got to start to get heavier, so I headed home (& my eyes were burning, just been acting weird like that.) Of course, the closer I got to home, the less it rained. Hey, I got a walk in, & it was a pretty good one. The whole town felt like it was asleep.. maybe cause it was Sunday, maybe the rain...who cares. If it was like that every morning, it'd be awesome. <em>334</em> Just me & the world around me,...

And the cool thing is, my room is SO small, I have NO CHOICE but to look at it no matter where I am in the room! <em>334</em> <em>224</em> <em>345</em> <em>243</em> <BR> Jennifer Sun, 25 Jul 2010 19:55:58 EST Yep, another blog.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3459699 from me. SO, I FINALLY got my Wii set up. I had bought it & an additional game literally almost a year ago. Prob was, no tv to hook it up to. I have a tv (1), but it's in our bedroom. There's barely enough room to walk around the full bed let alone do anything involving the Wii! LOL So, not long ago, I got a tv. Then, after it sat in the box for a week or so (more so), I hooked it up TODAY!!! No, really, LOOK!!!!! <em>40</em> <em>40</em> . I even USED it. I'm not real good, but a... Thu, 22 Jul 2010 20:21:15 EST My former best friends! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3451398 Don't worry. I'm ok. I was at the grocery store yesterday, doing my usual shopping. However, one thing was different this time... My best friends, Ben & Jerry didn't jump into my cart the way they used to. At first, I was dumbfounded, then confused. (Still kinda confused, actually!) I just thought "all the times I need you, NOW is the TIME! (Really crappy stuff going on in life in general & not general.) Nothing back in response from my buds. No cookie dough, no chocolate fudge brown... Tue, 20 Jul 2010 14:41:17 EST Randomness.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3441682 So, after a long 4 or 5 days of not walking (except for daily stuff), I got up this am & walked... over 12,000 steps by noon. I have such a small apt., if I didn't have anything to do outside, like go shopping or anything, I'd MAYBE get in 1,000- ish steps. (& I think that's pushing it!) So, I figure, I need to get my 10,000 + steps in plus more for the extra oomph....not counting anything at home. <BR> I really have been very sedentary since I got fired from my job & haven't been work... Sat, 17 Jul 2010 16:06:59 EST My SP name... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3424736 Actually is my same name on aol. I have always loved rainbows, the sky, clouds, but the rainbow itself came to mean more to me than what happens after a nice rainfall. It's like it took on a whole new meaning for me when I came out to my family (& more importantly, my friends, cause they at least still respect me for who I am.) Just knowing this "new" part of me was, well, kind of cool. As for the LPN.. I am one. Went to nursing school in 2003, graduated in 2004, & have been working most... Mon, 12 Jul 2010 17:40:37 EST Grateful.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3415264 Finally catching up on some SP things and am doing my blog for what I'm grateful for. I'm grateful for my partner, for sticking by me through the rough times. I'm grateful for my sister, for being my sister & loving me through all of my faults. I'm grateful for my 3 fur kitties, cause they're SO darn cute & they love me unconditionally. I'm grateful for SP, cause without this place, I think I'd be in a different place. And last, but not least, I'm thankful for rainbows, sunshine, flowers... Fri, 9 Jul 2010 16:12:59 EST Grrrr.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3398634 When they say every day is a new day, boy, they aren't kidding. The other day, I took my longest walk...ever... & felt GREAT! I had bought new shoes a few days before & this was the 1st official walk in them. I walked in the am, & when I came home, I was refreshed, happy, & felt an extra oomph for the rest of the day (which is nice, esp. for when I'm working on my MT class online). Anyway, you'd THINK knowing that I can feel this way, have actually experienced it, that I'd want to feel it... Sun, 4 Jul 2010 18:20:05 EST Well... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3329596 There's a couple pics of me with my short hair up... :-) Hope you all like.. & yes, I feel naked! (But much lighter & cooler)! <BR> Jennifer Sun, 13 Jun 2010 12:27:24 EST Woo Hoo! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3327716 Well, only a few days after posting my pics on here, I decided to go & get my hair chopped. My computer is having a fit, so I can't get the pics on here, yet, but I can tell you I was able to donate 13.5 inches of hair! Yayyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <em>247</em> Sat, 12 Jun 2010 17:56:39 EST
