Day 4 - last full day
Friday, January 22, 2010      4 comments

I'm writing this the morning of Day 5. I get to go home at noon today and cannot wait. I've been in hospitals a few times and I've never been this excited to leave. I'm upset that they have not gotten good data - at least, not that I am aw... Read more
My uneventful Day 3
Thursday, January 21, 2010      4 comments

With this observation, I would like my days to be more eventful. They refer to seizures as "events" and, ideally, I need to have at least 2 events that are big enough for the doctors to learn from. That's not happening. I've had enough little on... Read more
Day 2
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      4 comments

Day 2 was rough. I won't lie. I was bored out of my skin. Then, I started getting a migraine around 10pm. They refused to give me medication for it (thinking that the migraine might bring on a seizure). Because I had not had a seizure yet,... Read more
Recap of Day 1
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      2 comments

I survived yesterday - the first day of my hospital stay. It's just as boring as I expected. Even though I brought some clothes from home, I couldn't wear any of them bc of the wires. So, I have a fashionable 2-gown thing going on and slipper so... Read more
My week ahead
Sunday, January 17, 2010      2 comments

Tomorrow, I will go into the hospital for 5 days. I'm not sick, I'm not having surgery - I'm just being "observed." I have a form of epilepsy (caused by a brain tumor), so the doctors will take me off of my medication and watch for my seizures. ... Read more
C25K - week 2 complete ... and, other good stuff.
Friday, January 15, 2010      2 comments

I finished week 2 of c2-5k, finally. I actually finished it yesterday, but wanted to re-run day 3 (yesterday wasn't a stellar day on the treadmill). I'm excited to move on to week 3. Today was also a great day in other respects: * My... Read more
C25K - week one
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      4 comments

Today, I finished week 1 of the program. I'm trying to figure out why I didn't stick with the run/walk cues (instead, I would run through them) and work on my speed instead. I am a SLOW runner. And, I do mean slow.... Read more
Out with the old
Sunday, January 03, 2010      3 comments

Since this is the start of a new year, I want to start fresh. I finally packed up all the old clothes that no longer fit, but that I felt sure I'd squeeze back into someday. Seeing them in my closet (taking up valuable room) was not motivating, ... Read more
I am my child's example.
Saturday, December 05, 2009      3 comments

Last week, my husband was eating a brownie. Our son started begging "please! please!" I thought he just liked brownies (who doesn't?). Then, last night, my husband was eating an apple. Our son started begging, again, "please! please!" That's wh... Read more
Loss and Gratitude
Wednesday, November 25, 2009      2 comments

Of course, it is the time of the year we all think about what we are thankful for. I hope I do this all year long, but I'm sure it's more pronounced during the holidays. This week, I suffered a loss. It was sad and hurt, but during the mos... Read more
My Produce Box
Saturday, October 10, 2009      5 comments

On Fridays, the people in my office generally leave early. The tradition around here it to head to a local bar. Everyone is excited for the call to head to the local watering hole. I, however, am excited for the call because, on most Fridays, it... Read more
