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
It Just Feels Strange...
I've been trying to get through my morning PT etc today--the energy level is just not there. I didn't sleep very well... all the adrenaline, followed by all that raw emotion...
We took Dawson's body to the local emergency animal hospital w... Read more
I can't believe he's gone...
My service dog just died, about half an hour ago.
Brian and I have had him for fifteen years. He was a pet before he was trained...
He had some recent health issues. ... Read more
I spent two hours on the phone with the Sony co. yesterday, and they reset a bunch of things and tried this that and the other... and I just lost another entire blog before I could post it. AAGH!
They told me it was probably due to a build... Read more
Odd Day: Payback for Taking a Test!
Well, dagnabbit! That test I had on Friday? No problem, right?
Until last night.
I don't know if it was a delayed reaction, if it just took time for my immune system to kick up, or if it took the time for that barium they made me d... Read more
Taking another shot at this...
Where to start...?
Thursday night after dinner, I received a phone call. It was one of the nurses from St. Clare Hospital, calling to discuss the testing procedure scheduled for Friday afte... Read more
