My Family Needs Your Prayers...
I just got off the phone with my sister Vicki...
She called me (a rarity, I usually call her so she doesn't have to pay long distance charges)... my brother's wife, Rosa, had a heart attack this afternoon. She had just gotten home from wor... Read more
Ah, Blogging Again... Finally! LOL
It seems like forever since I’ve done this—been so busy catching up with everyone else’s blogs! LOL
Today is a “running errands” day, and the first since the day I got the stitches out of my hand that I will be driving… and I still can’t c... Read more
A Bit Too Ambitious--Again! LOL
My laptop is eating my work again--or should I say, still? LOL
I just typed all this and watched it disappear, so here I am again!
I'm in my second week of the 8 Week Diabetic Challenge and we're asked to report our BGLs every morning... Read more
Lazy Day... and it Isn't NOON Yet!
Talked to my Dad this morning... he has been dealing with an infection from a minor scrape onhis leg. They actually were considering hospitalization for IV antibiotics, it got so bad... but it's "under control" now, though it still bothers him ... Read more
Out of My Comfort Zone...
Still working on my "bucket list"... it has become a real entertainment for me... almost as much fun as rediscovering some old favorites on Netflix! LOL
There is a huge controversy over the new program rates changes they've instated--whi... Read more
An Interesting Week...
My first week on the 8 Week Diabetic Challenge...
I have made the upgrades I wanted, but have also been dealing with a VERY MILD illness of some sort... Maybe it's a fibro flare, but it doesn't FEEL like the usual fibromyalgia stuff: it's c... Read more
Update on the HAND...
You know, Libby, I did ask about the physical therapy when I had my thumb done a few years ago--he said it's rarely appropriate with this type of surgery, and then only after the skin has healed completely. They take the stitches out before tha... Read more
I'm On My WAY...
I joined the 8 week diabetic challenge this week... PLUS...
I got my stitches out today--and found out I've been doing too much, as the surgeon does NOT want me opening jars or pulling on drawer handles or even trying to grip anything with ... Read more
Growing in My Sleep...
It's not quite three in the morning, and I woke in tears. It's seldom that I find myself without words, but I am searching now... fear and gratitude, relief and shame...
I'm ashamed to say that I am afraid of pain. Not so... Read more
I guess the doctor did a little more than prep my neck--there's a puncture mark and some bruising on that side! He didn't get to the vein though--there was no bandage applied...good as I'm allergic to tape, and I'm pretty sure wrapping cobain a... Read more
A Wild Ride!
Yesterday I had surgery on that trigger finger on my left hand. I am reduced to the old hunt and peck method of typing with one hand--and this is going to take a while... *sigh8 and THEN some! LOL
Everything was going very smoo... Read more
It's 5:45 am, and I am not allowed breakfast... at least, nothing I can chew! LOL Clear liquids only until 10:00 am, then nothing at all--because I'll be in surgery by 1:00 pm. I'll be glad it's over--maybe they'll feed me! LOL And in a few... Read more
HAD To Share This One!...
I was just glancing through my homepage at MSN, and found this MARVELOUS article!
I see it all the time on the threads here, how we really dislike this or that about our bodies, how we are judged or judge ourselves by our appearance--and th... Read more
Here Goes Nothin'...
I haven't blogged for a bit...
No excuses, I just didn't feel it.
Dawson's death... my upcoming surgery... financial stuff... low blood pressure, high blood pressure, lack of energy.
None of them reasons to just quit--and that's w... Read more

Just a few more thoughts...
Isis and Licorice have spent most of the day catnapping--in all of Dawson's favorite spots: the uncarpeted area inside the front door, the middle of Brian's room, the space at the foot of my bed... and Isis has been talking to him off and on, ... Read more
