sorry you had such a bad night and hope you sleep better tonight. the treatment sounds very unpleasant and is restricting what you eat so I hope you get some improvements soon. I know what you mean about expense - I seem to be forever paying medical bills and now i have exhausted the rebate allowance on my private health insurance for physio i'm having to pay the full price myself. i'll keep up treatment while I'm still in the period when there is the possibility of improvement in the shoulder.

see doc next week but think breathlessness is due to heart problem.

have joined the better sleep challenge but not gone into site yet.

washed two winter jackets and didn't realise there was a tissue in one of the pockets. they are both covered in bits of paper now:

nice collection of exercises.

glad you are sleeping. check out why tired!!!!

good you accomplished some payments.

hope you enjoyed book club in spite of unfortunate hospitalized members. hope they recover quickly.

couldn't sleep cause tube, etc. hurt. back to surgeon today. back on stronger antibiotic and antiseptic stuff to irrigate tube at least 3X per day. so much poison and time. also the additional money is adding up. i guess all worth it, if it works.

glad they're letting you get new lenses. hope they work!!!!
rain is really a damper. you can't walk out for exercise or socializing.
dance class is scheduled for monday.
today i did some financial stuff. will shred a bunch of paper. walked to bank and to buy a scarf.
got out one stain but faded the material a little. think i can still wear it informally.did one elastic.
more tired than i have a right to be. will rest rather than push.

hope you did.

slept better last night. thinking of checking out official sleep challenge at the weekend.

it's so confusing knowing what is the right thing to buy. went to chopping centre but short of time so couldn't buy much - did manage to get some freshly cooked chicken pieces. ran late because went to optometrist. I wasn't happy with reading glasses. had load of tests today and they said they could probably improve on double vision. was lucky - had run out of period for alterations without charge but, because of delay in getting another specialist appointment and need to book driver for visits said they would make new lenses for free.

difficult to find cardio the only one I can do is marching on the spot and I can only do five minutes at a time. at least when I go to shopping centre get to walk a lot.

glad you're looking after yourself.

thanks. hope we have dance class. only 8 women

irrigation itself is quite easy now. hardest part is getting to it, as always. pureeing my food is a nuisance and mess to clean up. luckily, i don't mind the taste.

lol re physio. you were busy enough! sorry you couldn't sleep. yes, you must eat earlier. so many things we must do.

not working. just taking care of me. today went to health food guy. bought half of supplements he suggested. he said i could introduce slowly. didn't remember everything, but too much for him to handle anyway. walked to and from buses. got off early and shopped a little on the way home.

need to give my wardrobe some attention. two stained items. some needed elastics, etc.should go on some to do list for our MC. speaking of which, i meant to ask you: are there no activities that you can do indoors this week?

glad you enjoyed dancing. it will get easier the more often you go to class.

it's time you looked after yourself after a long period of neglect due to health problems. Are you finding irrigation easier now?

.I slept very little last night so am exhausted. I need to get back on track again, including eating at a more reasonable time. The weather is atrocious again now but had to stay in in any case. car taken for service, etc., gardener came, spent a long time with neighbour with injured arm, friend 'phoned and another came yesterday. today car was returned [don't know when i'll drive it again but it's roadworthy now], friend called round twice, another friend 'phoned to discuss computer problem, came later but didn't bring her laptop so I couldn't see what she'd been doing and then podiatrist came. relieved that physiotherapist didn't make miraculous recovery and come too.

can you get some work done - enough to make it easier but still leave time for yourself?

msg 2 feeling human in spite of many interruptions to sleep.
warm day. was going to walk to work, but decided against it. what waited this long, will wait some more. i'm kind of on vacation.spending it taking care of my body. better go irrigate.
still hoping to dance tonight. waiting for confirmation phone call. probably won't know how to do many. hope i get some sort of workout.
my brain is awake. i need to exercise it. resisting doing something useful 'cause i still want to pamper me, but i might as well get something done and have less future pressure.

hope so too but think I'm feeding all the pigeons in Australia.
good for you walking. physio has just 'phoned to cancel appointment today because he has a cold but will try to go to exercise class. need to walk there [less than ten minutes] but not raining and should get a lift back.

apart from not seeing fireworks, that's the best news I've had from you in a long time.

rain nearly all day but could have been a lot worse. I'm grateful to be warm and dry.

had extra grass seed spread round area near bird bath. looked out of the window this morning and think every pigeon in Australia must have been out there enjoying it for breakfast.

suddenly realised it's bookclub this week and hadn't started reading the book so that kept me out of mischief.

keep making the most of your good weather.

time ran away from me yesterday so didn't post. hope you have good gynec result.

pleasant day yesterday until I got back from playing scrabble and found air conditioning not working. had to get up in night and put cardigan and socks on before going back to bed. hope it can be fixed because replacing it would be costly.

will have to wait in for technician so I guess i'll have to use the time to catch up on indoor tasks.

keep improving.

frequently feel that. also find I too often already know what is written in articles.

started to walk to post mail [only about 8 minutes] but someone insisted on driving me partway. didn't like to refuse because might be glad of a lift some time. walked back.

physio OK to go to exercise class. asked if it would be all right to hire treadmill later on. not keen but said he'll think about it.

ladybird should be applauding you!! well done.

hardly discussed cold. low in vit d. aic (sugar) higher than he wants. wants me to see dietitian. i told him i know more than she does. trying to get back to eating "well" after the high carbs i was having. he wants me to eat egg whites. i intend to have one egg and one white.

he wants me to have skin allergy tests. the blood test was useless.
need to figure out how to have my nuts and carrots on the road. today i took a hard boiled egg and a banana. nuts are healthier and carrots are sturdier. forgot extra white, but had it when i came home.

will email you.

bad early today eased later.

glad you're feeling better. will await the report on the "cold".

went to garden centre with friend [needed new bird bath]. went our separate ways to shop. I got back 20 minutes before him so walked up and down instead of sitting and having a coffee.
poor ladybird!

sigh - you're right!
physio - slight nosebleed which worried him because of warfarin but caused no problem. hurting after treatment but he said I should go to exercise class. enjoyed it but now have pain in both hips - don't know from which but if it eases tomorrow worth it.
neighbour who fell and hurt shoulder in lot of pain - will probably need cortisone shot soon.

good! it is difficult re teeth and gums. had to ignore part of my mouth for a while but back to full treatment again now. is the sinus problem more or less permanent? would you be likely to make use of the nutribullet late?.

tidied out food cupboard and discovered half a block of dark mint chocolate - not my favourite which is why i probably forgot it was there. ladybird said we were obviously meant to eat at least some of it today.

hope you're enjoying good weather.

sorry you're still in pain.

my mouth is feeling much better. i'm eating soft food without blending. still blending hard stuff. i'm going to do netti pot for my sinuses now, i think. gotta irrigate the tube in my mouth 3 times a day. completely neglecting the other three-quarters of my mouth!! not too bright.

a few women came over today. nice. someone suggested i get a nutribullet to liquefy my food. pricey equipment.

managed short walk today although still pain from treatment. don't see physio until monday. took sleeping tablet last night so slept more but don't like doing it.

different driver yesterday. one of her jobs is to pick up autistic child who kicks, scratches and even bites her. another job is cleaning for lady in seventies. perfectly healthy but dirty dishes everywhere and rotting food. not a good career choice!

have a good weekend.

yes, there is potential for very serious, but a lot of hope that it won't be. when it hurt at night , i took painkiller. now i just put anbesol (local anesthetic) so i have been able to sleep. stomach kept me up more than mouth.

glad your mouth is better and ladybird enjoyed her salad.

sorry about your car . expense and nuisance.

very sorry about your pain. ask the physio.

someone suggested i get a hand (immersion) blender. reasonably priced ones don't seem to get good reviews.

enjoy the weekend. feel good.

I don't think I realised quite how serious the problem is and how unpleasant and difficult the treatment. are you insured for it? you certainly deserve to lose weight. my mouth is almost back to normal again but I think I will leave nuts a little longer. treated ladybird to seafood salad - unfortunately swimming in mayonnaise but delicious and she's happy with it.

mixed day - problem with optometry appointment so now I have to wait a fortnight until I can get my driver again. also a factory recall on my model of car - have been able to arrange for someone to pick it up and return it but I will need a complete service [highly expensive] as it hasn't been driven for so long and i will probably need to buy a new battery too.

don't know what the physio did yesterday but have been in a lot of pain ever since. awake most of last night so tempted to take sleeping pill. does your mouth worry you at night?

what's with the mouth ulcers? cause? treatment? progress?
i'm glad your leg is improved. i'm worried about your breathing.

i have a huge cyst in my left lower jaw that replaced most of the bone there. they are trying to shrink the cyst slowly to make it safer to operate on it. they claim the bone will regrow when the cyst shrinks. surgery right now would be a major operation that would include bone grafting. they make an opening which i have to irrigate 3 times a day. (not easy for me). he put a tube so it's easier for me to reach. he's done this 100's of times and claims 90% success rate. he's done it with the tube only 10 times. i guess he's not perfected that yet. i wonder if i would have opted for the tube if i realized he could do without. the stitching was incomplete and i was bleeding. yesterday he added stitches and stopped the bleeding. my cheek/chin are black and blue but i feel better. i was on liquidy diet because of surgery. today i ate fish and it made me hurt more. i must eat soft for a long time (not pureed, but no carrots or nuts which i will miss a lot. such portable protein and fiber). want to protect what is left of my jaw from cracking. not even steak or anything very chewy.

chopped up pre-cooked beef bourgignon and veg and cooked it until it was almost runny in microwave. will check avocado lunchtime and see if it is soft enough to mash. sleeping well is always a plus.

what exactly is causing the bleeding and where are you turning black and blue? I do hope the procedure is successful. is it difficult to get there? echo your feelings re docs, specialists, etc.

managed a short walk today. leg seemed OK but breathing very bad.

thanks. i enjoyed the wedding. left early. no main or dessert, but had ice cream at home.
went back to doc. he conceded i was bleeding abnormally and added a few stitches. still builds up pressure and releases. now i'm turning black and blue, so i'm bleeding internally instead of externally. have i mentioned i hate docs. didn't tell me to put on ice and eat soft again. i had to ask.
i really do not mind pureed food at all. just need someone to make it for me. better than a steady diet of ice cream and yogurt. haven't bought pudding yet.

can't take echinacea. too much autoimmune stuff around me (and maybe in me). contraindicated.

neither of us are doing too well at the moment - one good thing is that we're not tempted to buy "goodies". couldn't face the idea of pureed food but having lots of yoghourt and frozen fruit microwaved until it is almost liquid. receive soup with every meal on wheels so I can dunk bread in it. will have to throw out the apple the lady sliced for me last week.

you really do not need a cold at the moment to add to your problems. have started taking the equivalent to Echinacea as a preventative.

fluid under control but only with diuretics and restricted intake. if I drink more, i'll have to take extra diuretics.

I hope you enjoy the wedding if you go. you certainly won't need to worry about overeating.

don't like your eye situation! exercises are always good. get good guidance.

instead of living on ice cream and pudding for two days, i pureed real food. even salad. ice cream once a day. applesauce from a jar without sugar. can you have someone do the same for your fruit and vegetables? some people find it unpalatable, but i had no problem. (i'll eat anything!)

my "cold" is returning. i'll have to ask about neti pot and steaming. meanwhile made appt with oral surgeon tomorrow and postponed gp to next week.

wedding tonight. undecided.

keep on trying is what we do....let's raise a glass of water to us! (can you drink water these days, or do you retain it?

very unpleasant procedure but you should be feeling reassured about your decision since you've done your research. he sounds like someone you can discuss things with and and who will answer your questions.

need laser on eye, which is minor problem, and not good result re double vision. specialist says there are three possible reasons for it - two of which cannot be rectified. he doesn't hold out much hope for the third but is sending me to a neurologist for tests. says I may just have to live with the problem and end up covering one eye for reading. think I will start doing some eye exercises. even if they don't help they won't to any harm.

friend brought me some food from shopping centre and stayed for a nice, long chat, which cheered me up.

I'm worried about eating and exercise too. food at the moment chosen because of texture and no raw vegetables or hard fruit. walking very difficult last time and not helped by our being advised not to go out tomorrow morning because of gales.

we're both having a bad time at the moment but we must believe things will improve and keep on trying.

doc called back. told me to wait till morning. i irrigated this morning, but it was blocked mid-day. he said to keep trying and if not, i'll go in mon or tues.
by "married", i think he meant we'll be seeing a lot of each other for a long time. at least he's nice. i still can't believe how quickly i agreed. others are surprised, too. i have now researched and see this is done. it's certainly the lesser evil. don't know how many versions there are or who does it best. would be hard to be "married" to someone far away. i can only hope it works and goes fairly smoothly. no clue how i'll keep the teeth and gums clean.

meanwhile i'm concerned i've been fairly sedentary for months now. not good. also allowed myself some ice cream (suggested by dentist, but i know better. he also said i earned a lollypop for being good when he worked. i asked if he was drumming up business.). don't tell our critters :)

hope you get a good report by eye specialist. that's been an ordeal for you, too.

i'm reasonably comfortable. i don't know how to irrigate the tube. i'm still bleeding and it increases when i try to look for the tube. doc hasn't called me back. i guess i'm going in tomorrow.
it is my style to avoid surgery. i jumped at the opportunity to do this relatively minor procedure to avoid the major one, but maybe i should have given it more thought and research. now i can only hope it works and without major kinks. doc said he hopes i like him, because now we will be married. i'm not quite sure what i got myself into.

sounds horrible, minnie. an operation is certainly not something to be undertaken lightly and I am sure you will do everything possible to avoid it.

will talk to physio and doctor re mouth ulcers. used to have them frequently when I was feeling run down but not recently. walked for 15 minutes but pace has slowed since last setback. will just have to keep trying.

spent afternoon with neighbour who had fall recently so between us we had two good arms.

hoping for good news re your gum.

so sorry. i had no phone service , and thus no internet for a few days. haven't been going anywhere.

found a very big cyst in my gum on wednesday. i'm missing a chunk of jaw in lower left. had surgery today to do biopsy and insert a tube. surgical removal is an 11 hour operation. trying to avoid it. was doing neti pot and steaming for my "cold", but will stop now. taking antibiotic for gum, anyway. codeine will make me feel good. :)
what's with your mouth sores? hope they go away quickly. canker sores? we can research on web. mention to physio. he may know something.

i did but now have mouth ulcers so can't eat most of it. ladybird thinks it's punishment for me.
could have gone to afternoon tea but didn't feel like it.

have taken brewer's yeast and olive leaf extract but not the others. sometimes think they have a different "wonder" cure every year. hope you get some good results.

managed to put my appointment with the eye specialist back to next week so hope he can help.

good luck with tuesday's appointment.

:) enjoy your order. treat yourself and ladybird to fruit.
i'm also not happy about your double vision!! hope it's resolved soon.

health food guy says to wash hands with soap and water and brush teeth 2X a day with toothbrush dipped in hydrogen peroxide.wants me to take glutathione, NAC, brewer's yeast and olive leaf extract. i've taken all of these at some point over the years. i've become wary of "natural' supplements in my old age.

hope better weather will help you. wet and cold here again so glad physiotherapist came to me. friend rang and offered me lift to exercise class this afternoon but he doesn't want me to go this week. do miss the exercise and social life, as I know you do too.

hope you get good results from dentist and GP if you feel up to going. I may try to get earlier appointment with eye specialist as not happy with double vision.

read that ladybirds can eat up to 100 aphids a day. wonder what that equates to in chocolate biscuits, not that she's going to get any. have already made 'boring' order for tomorrow.

yes, am resting, thanks, and getting better, but not well. need to find a good doc.
never got to computer yesterday. was afraid to open it to write to you at night, cause then i get stuck for long time. in the end, couldn't fall asleep anyway. think attributable to digestive tract.

sorry about your weather. great attitude. might as well appreciative what we have. smoothes the inevitable bumps in the road.

I was hoping it was just the computer which was sick. good to lose weight but a bad way to do it. sorry about the wedding but happy you enjoyed family time.

leg still problem so no dancing or walking. did get lift to book club today. not many people there but enjoyable.

ladybird says tell turtle she's disappointed and she hopes you're soon feel much better.

due to heart problem but feel as if I've put on weight, could make a difference. walked today and gained dollar for yesterday.

so sorry you're sick, especially now. is it a cold?

have total defense. tried chrome before with XP because too many programs wouldn't accept browser, no problems with newer version on 7 so took it off again.

take care of yourself.

ladybird feeling angelic. would be sprouting wings if she didn't already have them because we earned a dollar yesterday. went to exercise class today but breathing bad.

you've been very active so far and enjoyment and relaxation are important too,

hope the computer lasts out until you get back.

had to miss dancing because I couldn't get a lift but did walk and got rather damp doing so.

glad to know neighbour in nineties has recovered well. my friend in nineties went away for weekend and banged her leg on wooden box so badly walking to loo in the dark that she had to be rushed to hospital. home now but told to elevate it and also that she must take diuretics for a while as she is retaining fluid. will see doctor again tomorrow. the only good thing is that it forced her to see doc. she was worried about breathing too as the problem had only started a couple of weeks ago.

I'm being more consistent with walking but still having trouble having my evening meal early enough.

hope you exercised your other bits.

good walking but hope it won't be too hot for you when you're away. still very mild here but rain until afternoon when I did manage to get walk. would like to find some other type of exercise instead but too limited at present.

worried about friend in her nineties. last time she came to see me she was breathing very heavily, which was unusual for her. suggested she get check up. will find out if she has done so tomorrow.

walked to exercise class but got a lift back. very low key and a bit limited by shoulder but pleased balance and legs did all right. have to see how I feel later this evening.
forgot to turn air-conditioning off last night so woke at just after 1 a.m. feeing as if I had a fever. it took a long time to get back to sleep but can only blame myself.
are you looking forward to break?

you got a fair bit of exercise doing all that packing. it depends on how you are travelling as to how much you can take with you. if it's by pubic transport it will be more limited. when will you be leaving?

managed to fit in walk between showers but it doesn't seem to get any easier.

'phoned sister and had good chat. she's looking forward to summer too.

nice you appreciate being home when it rains. good attitude.
sounds like a busy accomplished day.
I walked only one way and canceled walk with friend because I was too tired. I ended up working very hard clearing a closet and packing. I did well. made a very heavy suitcase of stuff we bought. I like to pack compactly. i have more stuff for the other suitcase, but my husband just decided he needs more space than originally planned. he doesn't want me to take the stuff I dug out of the closet. I think it will be appreciated.(she said she wanted it.) where will I put my stuff? luckily, warm weather stuff is less bulky.

cleaner this morning and spoke to neighbour who'd had fall. is not wearing sling but says arm painful, may go for scan.
friend came round this afternoon but managed to squeeze in walk before she came. grey dreary day but at least no rain.

thanks, i'll work only during down time and traveling. lower priority.
sorry your day messed up. frustrating to juggle (unsuccessfully).
walked to work and back, then again slowly with friend. I like talking to her.
ate well and earned $. too lazy to find total. will regret.
hope you are sleeping well, too.
gums, anyone?

hope you won't be spending all your time working while you are away. I was hoping you'd have a chance to rest and relax.

much better than nothing.

my day went haywire. friend called round a.m. sun came out later - looked good for a walk but had to wait for physio. by the time he left it was getting dusky and my body didn't feel up to walking anyway.

sleep peacefully.

too good to hope for a repeat - raining heavily today so have to settle for three 5-minute sessions of marching on the spot. find it more tiring than going for a walk.

gums?

glad support helps.

also hope won't be long for nbr. you are reliving...

thanks, I will.......

guess it's a good sign that she's not interested in the order. hope you enjoy it.

was planning a short walk, but someone came along and I joined her for a nice walk. lovely day. spent some time with several neighbors, too. adorable smiley baby. nice social day.

was able to walk outdoors for a while wearing support.

a neighbour has had a fall - not broken anything but badly bruised shoulder and has to wear sling. know how difficult it is to cope and hope it won't be for long.

enjoy yourself and you will be reasonable, you will be reasonable, you will be reasonable..

got to put online food order away. ladybird not showing much interest.

you're doing well with exercise. I managed better than I expected at shopping centre [wearing support bandage] but could only do what was necessary. we just had coffee and I bought some apples which she cut up for me when I got back. they will be a treat as I can't cut them up myself.
might try for short walk tomorrow wearing bandage. we're having a spell of good weather but I'm feeling frustrated because leg has not allowed me to enjoy it.

good you walked. was offered lift but wasn't able to dance because of leg.
physio session - very happy with shoulder, so am i.
have offer of lift to shopping centre tomorrow. really need to go to return something bought on credit card. I'm not suggesting she isn't trustworthy but am not going to let someone else take my card. i can get just basic foodstuffs and then we can go for coffee [i know, temptation!] if it's painful.
agreed. you must!

I think he does and he takes an interest in all his patients. some movements I can now do better than I ever expected to, although others are still very limited. as long as I feel I am making progress, i'll continue the treatment twice a week.

having both machines functioning properly is an achievement and should help to lower your stress levels. I hope the new assistant is useful.

friend visited today. we hadn't met for ages so had a lot of catching up to do.

yes, the "four" of us will keep on trying. hope physio was able to help. seems he makes short term pain but I hope for long term progress.

both machines have been updated. I had to take car to take it in and bring it back, so at end of long day, I still haven't exercised.

newness of project makes it interesting. not intrinsically so. new thing always pulls me away from finishing current open stuff.

started working on new assistant.

glad to know the medic call was not necessary for either of you.

frustrating day. leg painful so had to alter doctor's appointment and ask physio to make a home visit. seems when things are going reasonably smoothly something crops up and it's harder to start again. ladybird says she'll make sure we keep trying.

is project interesting? is it software on your machine or office one which is the problem?

glad you walked, but not glad it hurts now.

I walked a little, today, too. mixup with walking partner. we somehow managed to cross each other and when neither of us answered the door(because we were trying unsuccessfully to get in to the house of the other), each of us almost called the emergency medics. anyway, we sat on a bench to recover from the experience!

ate nothing tonight. just dropped in briefly.

started working on new project. my software is too old and frustrating me.
goodnight

good. you should have more control over food and exercise, not like on a coach trip where you sit all day and have only limited choice of food.
physio said to walk if possible. I managed my 15 minutes this morning but can barely hobble round now.
quiet day but content with that.
