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
There's something going on with my laptop right now-- the touch pad is so sensitive, I've typed my blog three times now, four paragraphs or more, and my SLEEVE touches the $%^& thing and the whole blog has disappeared! THREE TIMES! I've even r... Read more
Notes From the Past for the Future...
I was putting my storage sorting project back to where I could work on it--and right on top of all the items was an old, ratty-looking spiral bound notebook. I set the rest aside immediately, because it was open and the first thing written ther... Read more
P.S. For those who missed it on my other blogs, the upcoming surgery is to release the movement of a damaged/inflamed tendon (aka trigger finger) on my left hand. The MIDDLE finger to be precise. Hm. LOL
The surgeon will cut through my... Read more
I Was JUST informed...
... Brian just told me...
The new management company is coming in TOMORROW to exchange my stove. It's been infested with mice since before we got here, but I didn't know it until I started baking my own bread again--the SMELL, OMG. Can yo... Read more
Don't Know WHY It's Been A Tough Week...
I haven't taken the time lately to post, and I guess I am kind of missing it! LOL
I seem to be in the middle of a down period: kind of depressed, extremely low energy level, blood glucose levels bouncing all over the place from 2-300 down ... Read more
A Spark Anniversary
FOUR years ago today, I logged in for the very first time at SparkPeople.com and it has been a delight.
I have made so many friends, learned SO much, made HUGE strides in all kinds of areas...
My life is so different.
Even with my... Read more
GREAT NEWS! LOL
I can exercise again--but CAUTIOUSLY, he says, and told me to stick to the light stuff for abs that they taught me in rehab after my last surgery... no problem. So this evening I'm doing the lower body 'SQUAR... Read more
The paramedics left just a little while ago.
I waited until after 4pm this afternoon to finish my shopping, since it had been too hot earlier... apparently it wasn't cool enough yet; all the handicapped spaces at the store we... Read more
