Much cooler now. Earning dollars and doing what little exercise I can.

miss you.

whenever and however you celebrate Easter - tapping eggs, hunting for eggs, colouring eggs, etc., have a wonderful time with family and friends. ladybird tells turtle not to be too strict but to keep a check on how many chocolate eggs you have.

my health would have to improve a lot before I could consider it.

you have done all you can to be as healthy as possible so it's time to let go of the worries and concentrate on the pleasure to come.

hope you can go again, soon.

i mean the healthy mediteranean diet that i don't bother to prepare. eating out is costly and unhealthful. rarely do it.

good advice.

thanks. dental visit uneventful. glad i went, even though it cost me sleep. don't want to fill wisdom tooth. will probably have to pull it eventually. when i had other wisdom tooth pulled, i was sick for 6 weeks. don't want to wait for an emergency either.

Oh, Minnie! How I envy you!. That is my favourite part of the world and I have been there many, many times.

I am sure that Mediterranean food and restaurants must be available where you live so is it just because the rest of the family does not enjoy it that you don't eat it?

Shopping centre and accountant. he wants to climb Everest so I encouraged him to do it while he's healthy enough.

glad about blood. hope visit to dentist and report are favourable.

Hope docs can come up with something helpful but you have very little time left to decide. It must be very unsettling for your husband also.

I will miss you too. Will post, but probably not every day, while you are away. By the way you have never said which country you are visiting and I would like to be able to imagine where you are. If you have a particular reason for not telling me please say so and I will respect it.

Much cooler this week so will try for a walk later

glad hip is ok. now for the rest...

i'm not sure. i'm hopeful. both docs said i can. he says it'll be good for me. i hope he's right. we'll see what he says today. think he'll draw blood, finally. he's more frustrated than worried, i think.

i suggest you don't worry from april 6 till may 4. i will miss you. i may get to check in occasionally, but not to worry when i don't. i think you should continue reporting to me (like journaling ?), but it's your choice. BE WELL!!

not too bad. only there for a while.

physio this morning. hip OK now but still have leg and neck/shoulder problems.

long overseas call later. enjoyable.

Difficult decision which only you can make.. You naturally want to clear up as much work as possible but also need to be as well as you can to enjoy yourself.
At least you now seem sure you will go. I hope you will let me know when you do so that I won't worry in case you're ill.

rainy but dramatic drop in temperature today, wonder if it will help with skin problem.

hope you can avoid the steroids. It's good that docs say you will go on holiday but the most important thing is if you feel you can go.

shopping centre this morning - found it an effort.

keep improving!

i like naturopaths and functional medicine doctors. wish i knew how to find a good one. and they cost a fortune. wishing you fast resolution.

thanks. ENT sees damage from previous sinus infections which will always make me vulnerable, but he does not see a current acute infection. had CT scan. more radiation. will give me steroids if i'm not better by sunday. not pleased. also says there are some long lasting viruses.

both docs say i'll go on holiday. of course, internist keeps saying i'll get better soon.

not so many workmen today but were drilling.

u3a this morning, appointment with accountant this afternoon.

trust there is still time for you to improve before you leave.

so did I but not responding to treatment. might try naturopath but not just yet.

hope you get a good result from your appointment.

glad workmen didn't bother you, but i fear it's just a postponement.

yes, i have a date. must get well! yes, both of us!! holiday would do you good, too, but not till you are able to enjoy it and not do damage.

your skin is aggravating. i thought you knew the cause. are you going to see an allergist? i suspect allergies and sensitivities are involved with me, too. hard to diagnose. i need a chunk of time and mind to devote to it.

doc sent me to ENT (otolaryngologist) appt. tomorrow.

had noticed you were posting earlier.

storms yesterday sent workmen home about 10 am, didn't appear at all today.

it would still detract from the pleasure of the holiday and might stop you from joining in things as much as you'd like. Have you set a date yet?

physio yesterday so ache a lot today.

doc visited me at home too. puzzled by itchy skin, said it might be allergy. he'll be away for a couple of weeks. everyone seems to be going on holiday but know it would be too difficult for me at the moment.

We both do.

just realized i missed last night. trying not to be on the computer late at night. had time earlier, but not yet used to writing then.

hope it wasn't too noisy. today, too.

i'm not very sick, but i'm doing nothing. there is still something. low fever, stuffed nose. cough. too happy to lie still and do nothing. but, essentially, no yellow mucous. and what's worse is the fear it'll escalate when i move. i'd like to rejoin life.

i expect to be in 3 or 4 places. won't be easy. nedd to get better!!

disappointing but perhaps better you didn't go.

when you're away will you be having one person's home as a base and visiting other people from there, which would be easier, or moving on from place to place?

how bad is "a little sick"?

walked early, then stayed home. guess it will be noisy again tomorrow when the tradies return so I made the most of today.

peaceful today but will try earplugs next week if necessary.

unfortunately the holiday you are planning will not be very restful and that is when you need to feel really well.

something similar happened to me twice. no money was taken from my account but two online companies I visited had been compromised and I had to get a new card. you'll obviously get a refund but trying to remember and informing everyone on direct debit is a nuisance.

difficult decision but you can't risk any setbacks. have lost so many older friends and I still miss them,

walked early.

that's positive!

construction is very disturbing. did you consider earplugs or white noise? we get mice when there's construction nearby.

i'm slightly worse today after working yesterday. spoke to doc last night. he said i need a week in acupulco. should just keep taking it easy and call him in a few days. neither of us wants to put me on more antibiotics.

got email from credit card (should have gotten phone call!) that someone made $700 purchase with my card. they also tried to call the credit card company and couldn't give my security info. canceled card. now will have to figure out to whom i have to give new number. they think some online company where i shopped got hacked.

elderly neighbor (whose two daughters live here, too-they actually grew up here and were all here before me. one daughter will now move to be closer to her children. only one neighbor my age has two children living here. the rest moved away and the parents followed.) passed away. my husband says not to go to the funeral. i think he's wrong, but i'm afraid not to listen. don't want to bother doc.
that leaves only one person who was here before me and is older than me. she's kinda out of it.

wish i could think of positive news to end my email. it's certainly not hot and humid here :)

nevertheless it would have been a relief to get them done.

worth it to have fresh food.

make the most of the opportunity to rest.

The property on the other side of my road became vacant a while ago and the prospective buyers are having the whole interior refurbished. Tradies start at 7.30 and it's very noisy. I'm looking forward to some peace and quiet over the weekend.

both evaluations postponed. neither has serious consequences. it's in my head.

must you stay in the room with your cleaning lady?

pity you have to be stuck for delivery.

i'm neither improving nor getting worse. few more days of rest ahead.

enjoy the weekend.

I know you don't like them but I'm sure you'll you do well.

it must have been very hard for your parents to have been cut off from their families. I think it is as you get older that you miss being close to relatives and childhood friends. I used to write to relatives as a child too. Sometimes overseas relatives visited us but we never visited them.

cleaning lady. she's talks too much [works at the same time] but is always willing to do little extras.

had to stay in this afternoon to wait for online food delivery.

I hope the improvement is steady even if you still don't feel well.

i'm improving, but not well. two stresses tomorrow. evaluations, which you know i don't like. one has been postponed twice.

i'm not sure if i met this cousin more than once. i don't visit her. we didn't even talk on the phone (except possibly briefly when my parents passed away). i talk to two of her sisters very infrequently. i called them this week. there was something good about people spending their life in one place with the extended family and same friends and neighbors. but that's long since gone. both my parents were cut off from their families. and they almost never talked on phone or flew. they wrote letters. so did i as a child.

your weather is a challenge. good you got errands done. mine are piling up.

sounds as if you're improving, which is good. I flew back from Europe one time when I had a cold and my hearing didn't get back to normal for three weeks so keep looking after yourself.

it's sad about your cousin. would you have been visiting her? incidentally, are you bilingual?

had to do some errands so that can count for my exercise. the humidity makes it an effort to do anything..

weather pleasant.

skipped some meetings. went to doc instead. lungs still clear. maybe sinus and post nasal drip. he's not concerned. says to steam. want to start earning dollars. will turn into a marshmallow.

my first cousin passed away. she's the first in both my parent's families. probably the oldest; at least that's good. but not that old. both her parents were older when they passed. the joys of getting older.

was only joking.

physio said he could use gentler movements but they would not be as effective.

I believe it's spring for you now. has the weather improved? 100% humidity and storms here.

good idea.

sorry medical ins claim is bothering you so much, but can't use reward money for it.

claim will wait. glad you went.

not sure i understand what your physio said.

yes, didn't feel great today and must get to the bottom. don't think conventional doc will. did a lot of work yeserday and just a little today.

gotta go in tomorrow. will take car and do as little as i can.

$200 - what a pity it's not real - would pay for increase in medical insurance.

Thank you for explaining. You definitely need to get your health under control as soon as possible.

physio - said could give me gentle treatment but would not help me much. guess he's right.

got a lift to a meeting this afternoon so put back trying to sort out claim until tomorrow.

I always got the impression that you were born and had grown up in the area where you live now and the plane flights were within the USA. Where are your relatives? If you don't wish to tell me please say so. Now I know we both have relatives overseas and can understand how hard it is for both of us when we are not able to visit them.

have to deal with dental claim tomorrow which I entered online and which has been marked "for consideration". premium goes up by $200 in April.

good luck with your claim.

good and good.

why don't we ever seem to have the more usual complaints? I spent a fortune on the neurologist, only to be told he couldn't help me. I hope you have more success.

walked early.

spent the afternoon paying bills and making medical claims.

sounds as if you have a very extended family. once again the good and the bad in missing the wedding.

enjoy your rest.

thanks. i'm not worse. computer behaving better today.

my doc is away. partner thought unnecessary to come out in bad weather. said to go to work on thurs if better and come in if not. i did both. lungs clear. no answer to why i'm sick so often. i need a different unconventional type of doc. he's the second doc to tell me i have Nystagmus(moving eyes). eye doc denied it last time. new development? i know i have essential tremor.

glad you walked, visited and didn't eat, finished dentist. we are crazy to celebrate numb face!

mammogram today. think it was ok.car service is costing me a mint and no exercise or fresh air.

enjoy rest of weekend. i plan to rest. missing wedding that cousin is making. out of town, but at least not out of country. missing opportunity to see family that would come in that i rarely see. yes, there's always the plus of not eating.

full marks for persistence. ladybird and I are very impressed.

did doc say not to visit because of weather or because he thinks it's not necessary?

shopping centre to order prescription sunglasses for driving and to buy food. think that's enough walking for today.

visited another neighbour in the afternoon but didn't eat.

do you think you'll be able to get into work Thursday?

hope doc can help you. you really need to feel better to enjoy your holiday.

didn't feel up to going to u3a. disappointing because I enjoyed it last week. thought I could have a peaceful day but was eating lunch when someone called asking about a neighbour and then started talking about herself. later was lying on spare bed and drifting off when gardener came round unexpectedly. some things aren't meant to be!

hope you find what you want.

that's the advantage of a clean kitchen. i eat a small piece of 72-85% chocolate. i can usually control this.

sorry about pain and lack of improvement. sigh.

need blanket covers, too. didn't find anything online. i'm not much of a shopper. suspect retiring would cost me money.

plan to go in thursday.

unfortunately, no

craved chocolate today but luckily/unluckily I don't have any at home.

you won't be having physio while you are away and you may decide on another form of treatment when you come back. you have never sounded convinced that it really helped you.

walked early but not improving. no sign of cooler weather for quite a while.

good luck with the cushions!

I know.

ladybird said it would have been impolite not to eat it and wished she could have shared it.

physio away so no treatment today. moved a light chair to another room and now I ache. hope it's temporary.

have just registered for free 21-day meditation course starting April 10 - https://chopracentermeditation.com/experience - but I guess you'll be away most of the time so it wouldn't be worth joining.

at least, if it's only because of lack of exercise, you will be able to regain uscle, as long as you don't have any health problems which make it impossible to exercise.

Good luck for tomorrow!

wise move. hopefully there is not too much travelling between relatives. they should be understanding if you need to rest at times, unlike being on an organised tour where you have to keep going no matter how you feel.

thanks.

worried about elderly friend. she seems to be getting more health problems and feeling less able to cope lately. she has a lot of family members who visit regularly but is planning to get information on aged care homes so that, if she needs to go into one, she will know what they have to offer. I know it is sensible but not something she would have even considered doing a year ago.

Look after your yourself and try to get as healthy as you can before your holiday.

two plain biscuits sounds good.

hope filling goes well. canceled my dentist cuz of bug. sore gum improving after i dug at it.

went out today a little. cold here. not well yet. will take time. didn't go to neighbor so no temptations.

good about head. bad about skin. :(

no problem, just worried about your health.

you didn't but good idea. Do you mean that you will be touring or that your destination is a long way from where you live? I always hate the return journey. let me know when nearer the time if you can.

sorry - two plain biscuits.

dentist today. need to have a filling replaced next week. as usual stressed importance of looking after gums.

head pain has gone but skin is still bad. wish I could find a way to solve the problem but just read a lot and find more contradictory advice.

actually, planning a month holiday soon. i need to be well!! did i warn you i might be away. but traveling isn't restful. i'll need a vacation when i get home!

today sinus infection while still on antibiotic for my cough! crazy.

enjoy the tougher class. glad you had a visit. (nasty: you didn't report on goodies).

hope head pain's gone and skin improved. you just keep going... i'm so impressed.

finding dirt in my free time. not a good situation. reading. playing. little work. prefer people.

haven't had them so far today.

pleased you have a good result from x-rays and that you are showing signs of recovery. while you enjoy work it would be a shame to stop. a month's holiday would help you but I don't suppose you could really expect your employer to agree to it.

u3a today. it's much more difficult in this class but it must be exercising my brain more, which is what I need. visited neighbour this afternoon.

make the most of your "free" time.

don't like shooting pains in head.

xray yesterday was good. compared to old ct scan and nothing new. kinda confusing but glad. doubt i'll need repeat. certainly hope not.

yellow goop gone. still congested white. few calls from work, but good day. could get used to this. but not ready to give it up.

probably not. stable at last blood test but if it gets worse I will have to go back onto warfarin. fluid restriction is because of heart. if only I knew! took sleeping tablet last night and slept more but can't tonight because of early start tomorrow. having some shooting pains in head this evening, which is new.

sinusitis is extremely painful so hope it doesn't develop. it's good that you are allowing yourself time to recover. will you be having x-rays afterwards?

I understand only too well how frustrating it is when you can't do the things other people take for granted but all we can do is keep searching for answers and try to keep within our bodies' limits.

make the most of the enforced break to rest and speed up your recovery.

did i know about your kidney disease? I thought your water limits were because of your heart. i'm sad. :(((
who will diagnose your skin and ideally cure it or at least give you relief? this is crazy!

seem to be developing sinus infection as well. was stupid to go in to work last week. normal people don't stop life for a cold, but i should know by now that i'm not normal. at least it's something that will hopefully go away soon. canceled everything till thursday and we'll see.

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better but you really are having a bad time. The antibiotic I was taking is Solone.

I am having a really bad time too with my skin. I've only been getting about two hours' sleep at night so am tired all the time. Found out "itchy" skin can be linked with kidney problems. I have kidney disease stage 4, which is quite advanced, but don't know if that is a factor.

We both desperately need answers but it's so hard to find them.

I hope all goes well tomorrow.

soory about your skin. i don't like antibiotics. which one did you take? do you take probiotics?

i feel better. i slept upright last night and it helped a lot. my fever is lower and i've begun to sweat. that's usually a good sign. went to doc today. he put me on antibiotics and wants a chest x-ray tomorrow. he says i have pneumonia and he wants to see the extent. now that I've fought off the bug, i will poison myself with antibiotics. i need someone to get to the bottom of this.

what I have will last for a while but think i'm supposed to use them permanently.

did a short walk late this afternoon but still too hot. skin is itching madly now. read online that it takes two years to get antibiotics out of your system and I really haven't been right since I took them.

that's not what I wanted to "hear". spend the weekend resting and looking after yourself and, hopefully, you'll feel better by Monday

At least some good came out of it.

Slowly getting easier. Good you walked.

So do I.

Went to eye specialist today. Says not much change so will have to keep wearing glasses for driving. Plan to get prescription sunglasses. Problem is liquid on cornea, not actual sight, and I have to use eye drops which a local practitioner cannot prescribe, only special government department. Was told there has been a breakdown in the supply chain and to be sparing with how I use what I have left. Hope problem is solved soon because it would be extremely expensive to import the drops privately.

Enjoy weekend and relax.

wish your pain would go to.

postponed dentist. had to go to work though i worked about 2 hrs. had to be there. took car in, but walked home with a rest stop.

it's bad that you have another cold. I do wish you could find out why you get them so often.

had to walk a lot at shopping centre. if I 'd only needed food I could have ordered it online but had to get other things too. managed but not easy and reaction set in when I got home.

if you went to dentist, I hope all was well. I had a reminder from mine a few days ago so have made an appointment for next week.

gave me neck exercises because they quit working on it. just began knees and hips again. did nothing about this 2 week leg pain, other than noticing swelling.
yes, slow progress is very frustrating.

that's what I thought you meant but should have said "and" instead of "but" sympathise with partner, because I know what it's like to get out of breath.

pains seem to move around, which I don't like. will try to avoid second physio treatment this week.

has physio given you any exercises? asked mine to adjust computer chair after what you said.

already too hot to walk even very early so will have to just do the limited exercise i'm allowed today.

a new month tomorrow. they pass so quickly but with so little improvement.

understand how you feel but sympathise with partner.

physio - thinks there's some improvement but still have a lot of pain. was slightly cooler for a couple of days but now we're back on a succession of really hot ones, which my skin doesn't like.

doc came later. still can't solve skin problem.

glad you found something you like on youtube,

i walked with slow partner today. don't like how often we stopped for her to catch her breath.
i hate when people compete. becomes too much and nobody does anything. schools destroy the kids, too.
got email offering dvd workout for half price with free shipping. found it on youtube along with two dvd's i already own. everything is out there. did it, or at least most of it.

it's a bit easier today so went for walk early.

glad you enjoyed it. at one time we were with a group of friends who visited each other regularly. it started off as just drinks and nibbles, then everyone wanted to do better than the one before and it ended up with a cooked dinner and all the trimmings. not nearly so relaxed.

had a visitor this afternoon. ate three small chocolate chip cookies

hope you're feeling better.

enjoyed the dinner. nice intelligent people. so many different foods and i sampled almost all but the pastries. had much oil and salt. not too much sugar-just chocolate covered nuts. drank only seltzer. we were 5 people and she could have fed 20. who needs all that variety? so many dishes and they don't even have a dishwasher.

Is there any way you can get round that one?

It would be great if that's the reason. I have exercise ball but not safe to use it at the moment, especially on hard floor. I know I sit badly because the gas has gone from my computer chair and I can no longer adjust it. However, I never thought to ask physio about position and if it is contributing to neck problems. Will do so. Thanks.

Still stiff and painful from hip to ankle and limping badly so grateful for a fairly quiet day.

Got a reminder from dentist today that I was overdue for a visit. There's always something.

You too and enjoy the dinner.

you had a full day. glad you enjoyed visit and hope you got lots done.

doc wants me to go to the specialist with all the data. i'd prefer to go to the specialist before i subject myself to X-rays and let him decide which i need.

have been sitting on three pillows by the computer so the keyboard is where the therapist wants it so i won't raise my shoulders. it's a little unsteady, which is good for the core (like working while sitting on a ball. but i think i'm steadying myself with my leg and could be contributing to my newest problem. wish it is that simple. still means i'm fragile, but not terrible.

happy weekend. tired and glad it's coming. got invited out for dinner on saturday. will be the usual challenge. guess i'll drag turtle along, sigh.

we both have.

"no good deed goes unpunished" very well put. it's not good to have to put in extra time [for which i hope he pays you] but it is nice to know he's happy with your work.

hope you can find another one.

it's a nuisance that x-ray place isn't close to home but you usually like to go to places which have been recommended.

cleaner this morning. likes to talk but is always willing to help in any way I ask.

visitor this afternoon - enjoyable.

gardener later - not an expert but very likeable. also willing to include extra tasks if I ask.

sleep well!

you have too many pains.

actually, i got the second project because i'm competent. he didn't put me in charge, but he expected me to help the woman who is. i don't like the direction in which she wants to take it. the third is really more something like quality assurance. i have to check my boss' work. i've done it before for him, so i get to do it again. no good deed goes unpunished. i don't mind the work. i mind the time it takes, and if he leaves some things till the last minute, i'll be under pressure when my two will be due as well.

dance teacher officially retired.

i've been dismissed from neck/shoulder therapy and told to do a bunch of exercises twice a day. returning to knee and hip.

doc took blood looking for inflammatory markers and referred me for an x-ray. i think it hurts less after his examination. he doesn't think it's a dying nerve, which is a relief. some of the stuff he's testing for is no good either. now to get me to xray place he prefers. maybe i should have requested something closer.

it's not heart failure but because I had also had to have an AV node ablation, which has cut off all communication between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. This is the reason that I am totally dependent on the pacemaker to keep me alive.

good.

I know just how you feel and hope the internist can help you.

limped my painful way to u3a today but could barely put any weight on one leg.

another long and painful session with the physiotherapist this afternoon. it helped a bit but hip/leg and neck still far from right. skin problem has flared up again so hope i'll sleep tonight.

it's a pity you've got to take on another project at the moment. that's the price you
pay for being competent.

hope so too.

great news about lung and water. pacemaker isn't news. but it just stimulates the heart. the heart still pumps?? must be working if no fluid in lungs. not heart failure. reintroduce fluids very slowly, i think.

thanks, yes i enjoyed long weekend.

made appt by internist instead of picking specialist myself for leg. it hurts. moving and not moving. foot, ankle, leg. sometimes feels like it goes up to hip. hope it's not nerve. felt a little dizzy once today. want to discuss that, too. docs don't like multiple problems. plus my usual pressure, cholesterol and sugar.

long rushed full day today. accomplished. tired. got another project. tried to stall it and failed. won't be bad work.

4 things to do tomorrow. hope i get through the day ok.

partly but also feeling exhausted. had long and painful session with physio, the doctor came and gave me test results. don't have fluid on lungs so don't need to restrict intake any further but heart in worse state than expected. emphasised my heart was not keeping me alive, only pacemaker, which I knew anyway. it's good it has it's own battery. just as i'd decided to lie down, someone rang and offered me a ride to a meeting I wanted to attend. interesting but went on too long.

sounds as if work is going well. it's a good job you had the break and a chance to get your strength back. what is the problem with the foot?

skin driving me crazy but leg and shoulders easier today. took sleeping table last night and slept in, chatted on 'phone for a couple of hours and went for short walk.

hope you are enjoying your long weekend

ditto

good

sorry you're still hurting, so am I. hope we'll both be feeling better soon. torrential rain and thunderstorms so no walking for me. not allowed to try alternatives until physio says I can.

don't like touch pad. might be easier to buy another mouse.
