Sounds like heel spurs. Ouch!! Do you have the night splint that stretches your foot all night so the tendon never tightens up?

I am going to call my doctor today to see when I can get the cortisone shots in my heel to take of this plantat faciitis or else I might as well be in a wheelchair! I can hardly go grocery shopping and spend a lot of time waiting in the car while my husband goes in for some things. The volunteer work I do does require me to be active and just sit and I have so many ideas for this mission thrift shop but I have to be able to stand up and organize! Standing for any length of time brings on this plantar faciitis and I am wearing good shoes and heel inserts to boot!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

I have the splint for mine in 3 days it works wonders. I usually realize by then that my shoes need replacing. I wear down the heels inside and out pretty quickly.

How are you all managing exercise ? I try and fit in mine while my charge sleeps. Today I get to try the wii fit. I have been walking and yesterday used the board for step ups.

Thank you I find with my experiences, I am in the right spot at the right time often. And yes I have recieved way more then I could ever give!!
I admire you Adajlim. To dedicate and follow through day in and out. I did for a few years when I lived in Hawaii by myself. That's how I can understand how hard it is to put boundries up and enforce them. I always felt guilty about not giving more to the church but there was only so much of me, as ample the amount of me there was!!! LOL
Sanya, being open and available is great. You have probably found that out already. Life is like a woven thread or words on a page and is continually being written and woven fresh. Like Adajlim who was available on her day off for her friend, the best moments are not planned or rehearsed!!

I agre with adajlim.... it sounds like you have a lot going on, and you take care of many!

I also don't have a consistent place that I volunteer at. Mainly I look for events here and there, but I enjoy it very much.

Hi Sanya, Welcome! Thank you for taking over the group. I don't do volunteer work but I work with people with disabilities. I am learning sign again, and have family and 2 God children who have hearing issues. My husband is disabled and prone to septic infections as well. So I am around people who need help and try to when I can. With my family and 3 jobs I tend to be very busy.

Yesterday I took my friend who has MS to the thrift shop where I volunteer on a day that we were closed so she could look around and I got to do some work. There are 3 rooms filled with stuff for sale and she had a blast shopping and I got a lot of work done as well! We later went to some other stores to shop around and had a great time talking, eating and shopping!!! Today I am tired but it was so worth it!!! emoticon

I got a call today from a lady at church who first asked if I could help clean up after the memorial service tomorrow that starts at 4:30pm. I said yes but hesitated at first. Then the lady went on the say they need to have a person in charge of the kitchen so they know how to set up/clean up afterwards. I got to thinking about how long my day was going to be. Up at 5am, at the thrift shop from 6:15am to 3:15pm, rush home to shower and get back to the church for the memorial service and it hit me that I was going to be overdoing it!!!
I called the lady back and explained my situation and she understood and just asked me if I knew if anybody who would be a likely candidate for heading the funeral refreshment set-up/clean-up. I knew right then that they were going to ask me if I had stayed to help clean up!!!
I feel so empowered about being able to say no to not doing everything that is asked of me now!!!
It's nice to volunteer but you can only do so much!!!

I am up late because I started thinking about the things I was going to do tomorrow and I got all excited about it!!! Sometimes I am just like a little kid! I am excited because I will be going to work at the Thrift Shop by myself so I can get some boxes of VHS tapes and books put away before our next workday this coming Tuesday. Silly of me to be so excited about working hours on end on a volunteer job but I think I really love the freedom I have since I am the assistant to the manager of the Mission Thrift Shop! I have my own key and I can suggest ways of doing things, too.
After I putter around the thrift shop for hours on end, I am going to Lowes to buy a carbon monoxide detector. Didn't really know that we needed one and especially in our rental house!!
Then I am going to Marshall's to see if they will give me some pants hangers for the thrift shop because we are all out and we have lots of pants for sale this month!!!
I LOVE DOING VOLUNTEER WORK!!!

Thanks and I have heard of Freecycle.org. Most of our clothing that does not sell goes to the Poverello House in Fresno, CA. They come out once a month after calling them to pick up boxes of clothing. I might have to check on things like kitchen stuff since that is the area that sells really well but we don't get as much as we would like at times. Mostly clothes or when someone passes away, then we have boxes and boxes of stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! And they passed it? God is definitely at work! By the way have you heard of Freecycle.org It is a way to recycle things instead of throwing things away. You can ask for things needed and sometimes get them. In my area lots of non profit agencies are using this.

After the old roof was taken off, the city had to come and inspect it and we were so afraid that they would condemn the building!!! It's an old WWII building and it has some major issues such as no bathroom, no AC and so on... But we make it work for us!!!

The Mission Thrift Shop at our church where I volunteer at is finally getting a new roof this week! emoticon It was long overdue since the roof leaked and ruined the front room ceiling and we were scared that the ceiling was going to cave in on us! Hopefully, it will be finished by the end of the week because next week we've got work to do!!!

Where are all our volunteers? Out volunteering I hope!
Does anyone volunteer so much that they feel like they have a full time job?
I do all my volunteer work at the church we are members of and this past week only had one day off... I seem to always be needed and I just can't say no.
I have to learn to balance my volunteering and my home life and get some 'ME' time in there!!!
Hope everyone has a safe and fun Fourth of July!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

GEORGIAGIRL~GOod for you in losing that 5 pounds! emoticon
I am taking the day off tomorrow from volunteering since I need to pack and get ready for this trip. I went to the church pantry this morning and I need to go shopping to stock up before I go. While I was there several people came in for food and I wished I had more variety to give them so that is why I need to go shopping!!!

I have been busy cleaning organizing up my house. Our living room is a multipurpose space. I have plastic drawers & shelves in 1 corner full of scrapbooking supplies. In another corner is a shelf full of gift wrapping, crafts & greeting cards. In another corner is all our videos & DVDs in oak cabinets. In last corner is where we store my daughter's electric wheelchair.
We are getting ready for our Girl Scout troop registration night in 3 days.
I was so busy that I only ate 1,100 calories, but I ate good & healthy.

Hi team, where is everyone????? Been a long time since the last person posted here. I am doing fine. Getting all the shopping done, just the wrapping now, and then kick back and enjoy the rest of what time I have leading up to Christmas Day.

Its been really cold here in central Ohio. We are due to get a big snow on Sunday, so I am well stocked and have no place to be, so let it snow I say!!!!

Wishing you all the best of the season. Embrace this time with family and friends. God Bless, Debbie

Hello team, I hope everyone has had a good month of October. My exercise has been mostly walking, but I'm hoping to get in some aquatics starting next week. Still dealing with computer issues, but other than that I guess I can't complain. I have a celebration of life service this weekend for a hospice patient that passed away this month.

Have a safe & happy weekend!!

Getting ready for church today and then going grocery shopping. Everyday I am fighting the thoughts of things that have gone wrong in the past and letting them go... They were so bad that I found that going to a counselor was necessary and he has made a big difference in my life today!!! Looking forward to the future now!!! emoticon

I am doing very good this very minute.
I have had a trying weekend. I am also dealing. I have a great niece that I never knew, and I am getting to know her. Very Special Opportunity, even if we are 2500 miles away. It felt like she was right here having a good conversation. also, I just walked one mile, with my husband. 1st time in....too long!

I am very involved at our church doing various volunteer activities and love doing! I no longer work due to my disability. My mother has had bronchitis off and on ever since her husband passed away on the last day of 2009. She told me today that she was kind of mad at me for not coming over and staying with her all this time. We keep in contact several times a week and if she really needed me she can reach me at all times. Then she said that she wants me to come and live with her! The thing is I am married and have two kids in college~one is home right now before going to Kenya on a missionary trip for 6 weeks. She doesn't do anything except go to church on Sunday mornings and then stays home. She never got involved with social activities and now she is probably bored to death! I told her I could not leave even for a few months because I have things to do and doctor's appointments to get to but she still insists that I should have come over and stayed with her this past few months!
What are your ideas on this??? emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

This weekend I am attending my son's graduation ceremonies at Cal Berkeley but on Sunday our PTO group (Parent's Time Out!) is helping our current pastor pack up her things in the church office. She will be leaving us to go to another church after being with us for 13 years~ emoticon .
Still planning a potluck birthday/go with God party for her on June 6th. So many things to do!!!

this weekend I am going to a women's retreat with the church but will be coming home early to volunteer at my nursing home's annual car show. It is a big one and I take the residents to show them the cars. It's usually a lot of fun. Not supposed to rain but is going to be windy.

This week I sponsored a name off a tree for the senior citizens of the area. You choose a name and hen buy some of the ideas on the ornament and drop them back off at the spot where you chose to do it. They deliver the gifts to the seniors in time for Chrismas. It is for people who don't have family or family close by so they don't have to go the whole day without a gift to open.

LOL Janet. I still wish I could lose another 8 pounds or so. But they don't want me losing any because of the dialysis. I am going back into surgery tomorrow to try to fix the fistula they put in last year. Wish me luck.

Bridget~that is great news! I am so happy the dialysis is actually working for you. It's great that you have more energy and I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers about the clot going away. I sure wish I could lose 18 pounds, you're already so tiny compared to me!

Thank you Janet.

I am feeling better. The dialysis is actually working I think. I lost 18 pounds of fluid with getting treatments now and I actually have a lot of energy I hadn;t had in a long time. Now if the clot goes away I will be really happy lol.

Talk to you soon.

Spent Saturday through Wednesday this week in the hospital because I got a blood clot in my juggular vein where it connects to the shoulder vein due to my catheter for dialysis. I am out now and doing better.

Hope things go better for you and they can get the dialysis working for you. Today I wasn't expecting to volunteer at the Thrift Shop but when I went there to see my friend and to shop, two of the ladies did not show up so I stayed to help out. I told her to always expect me to work Friday and Saturday mornings from now on! No need to call me! It was fun to work on the busiest day and to see how many new people are finding out about out little thrift shop. With the hard economic times, business seems to be booming for us!
Let us know how you are doing when you can.
Prayers for you Bridget~

Things finally got straightened out with dd's school and she went back today.

I haven't been feeling the greatest lately and the reason is the kidneys are getting worse. Tomorrow morning I start Dialysis. They say it will get rid of the swelling, help me to stop vomitting, and gain wanting to eat, but it will also deplete me of energy. That's not a good thing as I don't feel like doing much of anything now.

Anyhow, if I am not on for a little bit you know why.

I always have hope that things will work out and when they don't, I know that God had a different plan than mine. Try to keep a positive attitude and I hope that your husbandand your own health will only get better!

Janet, I say second opinion too and soon. Ever since losing my parents, I don't play games with our health at all. That's why my dh scared me half to death when he had his heart attack.

I myself am on high bp meds, several of them but mine is caused by my failing kidneys and hereditary. I am hoping most of it will go away when I get the new kidney and pancreas but I have a feeling I am hoping for nothing.

Bridget~ Don't worry about me. I do worry about my husband because he has high blood pressure and takes lots of medications for it. He also has a growth on his adrenal gland that could be causing his high blood pressure but the doctor says he won't take it out until it gets larger! I say take it out now! Maybe we need a second opinion?
Take care~HUGS, Janet

Ok Janet. I just cry when I hear things like that because it scares me so badly. My dad passed away also, 7 1/2 years ago also from heart disease. Both were suddenly. So when I hear things like that...you just get a bad feeling ya know.

Just worried.

Dear Bridget,
The cardiologist said if I was 10 years older he would recommend putting in a pacemaker. My anti-seizure medication is what is making my heart rate slow. I just have to remember whenever I bend down, like when you try on shoes or look at something on a bottom shelf, to get up slowly and make sure I am steady on my feet. Sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I know every April 30th, I remember my dad's passing away from prostate cancer that spread to other organs. It will be 40 years this year but I still think of him. I should be fine~just have to remember not to overdo things!

Janet,

Please please please, if they want you to have a pace maker put in Please do it asap. My mom was awaiting open heart surgery to have the valve replaced and one bipass, when they figured out her heart was fibrulating (bp and heart rate dropping severely0. They moved her surgery date from 3 weeks out to 2 days out from Satursday. On Sunday am just after I spoke with her, she passed away from another episode. My mom would have been 69 3 years ago. So please I am begging you, get checked out by your doc and do whatever is necessary. I don't want to lose a good friend on top of losing my mother to the same thing.

Bridget

Hi Bridget,
That's a good sign that he was not rushed into surgery right away. Maybe he will be alright but just needs to be monitored. I had a weird day today. I volunteered at the Thrift Shop and then went shopping with a friend but got kind of dizzy and was feeling weak. I came home and took my blood pressure and it was low and my heart rate was also very low again. I was thinking I don't want to have a pacemaker put in just yet and broke my butter dish! Best not to think about serious things when you have glassware in your hands! I wish your husband good test results and take care!

So sorry to hear that your husband had a heart attack last Tuesday but thank goodness it was a mild one. Will he need surgery? Glad to hear that your surgery went well. You sound like a very strong person and although you have had so many health problems in your life you are still a candle in the wind! Keep up the faith and I am thinking and praying for you and your husband.

I wish I could say that would work Janet. I have 20/400 vision in my right eye and only hand motion only left in the left eye. I lost most of my vision due to diabetic retinopathy and holes in the back of my retinas. I also had a stroke in my left eye near the main nerve that runs through it. So nothing will help.

My hubby had a mild heart attack Tuesday and has a stress test tomorrow. I had my arm surgery a week ago Wednesday and that is doing good.

Have you tried using one of those magnifying lights? My husband has a computer monitor that I get sick when I view my emails on it. It is an older one and the images are not that clear. Thank goodness I have the newer monitor that is crystal clear! Hope you are safe when you are out driving and I admire your strength and courage to do the things you do! Never give up hope!

Good to hear that surgery went well for you! As long as you can type is what really matters~glad you could get on the computer to let me know how you are doing. Good luck on your physical therapy~don't miss a session!
Yesterday I called the lady I used to care for just to let her know I still think about her and care. She called me later after going to see her doctor to ask me to look up something on the computer for her. She has that MRSA infection in her eyes and that is why her cornea transplants have all gone bad. She is legally blind now and has been for about 3 years~so sad...
I can easily pick up the phone and call her but I can't easily be there to take her places or keep her company. I will do my small part to help her out.

I've probably said this before but, we have to nurture ourselves first if we are to help others and especially our own families should come first. I used to visit sick people from the church and that would take up my whole day. I would barely have time to come home and fix dinner! I stopped doing all that home visiting when I got really ill and realized they depended on me to be there on those days very much! I now make lots of phone calls and send cards to let them know I am thinking about them. Probably saved myself a lot of wear and my marriage, too.

Oh Bridget~You will certainly be in my prayers! It must be hard being a diabetic and having to go through all the things you are going through right now. You are brave and strong! I pray that you can have a safe out patient surgery.
Last time I went bowling when I through the ball, I fell on my butt! The weight of the ball and all made me off balance and it was kind of embarrassing, to say the least! At least you had fun!
Rest up for you surgery~

Oh man Janet, that really stinks to steal from a church.

I had my ultrasound yesterday and they found absolutely nothing. So I am cancelling the general surgeon appt. for the 27th as there is nothing for him to biopsy. I am scheduled to have surgery on my elbow at 6:15 am on the 11th. Right now there is a chance that they may switch it to a hospital because they are scared of doing an iv on a diabetic foot. They would have to use to my foot because of the fistula being in for dialysis in the right arm, they can't use that one for anything but dialysis, and they can't use the left arm because that's the one being operated on. For now everything is scheduled for the out patient surgery clinic unless the supervisor comes back and says no. Wish me luck.

DH and I went bowling tonight. I did really horrible but we had fun and it was some exercise. I haven't been able to do much because of the swelling in my stomach. It started getting hard to breath so that's why we only bowled 2 games.

Anyhow, I am headed to bed. I will talk to you soon.

Today at the church thrift shop where I volunteer, someone stole 2 lights that we had clamped to the table out in front! They had a hanging price tag on them so you would know they were for sale! I can't believe that someone would steal from us. We have the best prices~really low! I guess they really needed them badly to go to all the trouble they went through to get them. FUMING!!!

Wow Janet, that really is a young age to be having a stroke. My ex-fiance, had a heart attack at age 24. His was brought on by hisself though. He was an alcoholic, drug abuse, well overweight, and ate junk all the time. He made his bed and he laid in it too. Did he learn from it...Heck NO! But that's not my concern anymore.

Your friend is very lucky. When my dad his stroke he had paralysis and speech problems but they gave him some sort of medicine right away and within an hour or so those symptoms went away. Unfortunately they found he needed a quadruple bipass the day after he got out of the hospital after his stroke and was on the operating table the next day after that. A week later, a very rare thing happened that his aorta detached because his heart was not use to all that blood flow for such a long time and he passed away. So she is very very lucky. I think I would rather deal with a little memory loss than be paralized in any way.

Good job on not attacking the brownies! LOL You obviously had self control which is really good. I am so looking forward to my getting the pancreas transplant and having my first brownie. I will at least get to taste one. After all this time of never having one I probably won't like it lol. Give me a piece of cheesecake on the other hand...oooooohh I can't wait!

I will talk to you soon. I am so tired. We helped set up and watch over a birthday party for our friends' dd this afternoon. 10 screaming teens and loud music (if that's what you would call what they listen too.) My head is about to implode.

Bridget~For some reason I felt kind of sick after taste testing the freshly baked brownies! I had the smallest bowl for our main course for dinner which was potato soup and at first I passed on the brownies but my DH cut them up in bite size pieces so I just couldn't resist! I ate one or two (just for you!) and I was alright. Maybe my tummy didn't like the warm brownies? Strange... We had a good meal and a good conversation afterwards. We plan to do this again next week.
Did I mention that we had my best friend and her DH over and that she is the friend that had the stroke over a year ago and she is my age! She gets terrible headaches and has memory problems every day but does not have any of the other widely known results of a stroke like paralysis. Thank goodness for that!
Hope your day is going good for you!
HUGS, Janet

Janet,
Thank you for your well wishes.

I know how easy it is to sit and snack and snack being home. I usually snack on carrot sticks and celery all day long so it isn't that bad but without being able to bite down. Boy is that hard. All we have in the way of soft stuff for snack is dd's chocolate pudding. Oh boy is that hard not to get into especially with my diabetes lol.

Enjoy your company and your brownies. Have one for me!

Bridget~I don't like dentists either! We finally found one that is very good and knows how sensitive my teeth are and also how scared I am to be sitting in that chair! I have to go this Monday and hope he doesn't find anything to fix this time!
I also hope that the lumps are benign. Just have to stay on top of those things. I hope the elbow surgery goes well, too. Hope your kidneys will stop swelling and you can go through with the surgery.
I love sweets and that is why I am always having sometime done to my teeth! I was much better when I worked instead of staying home because the kitchen is right there! I just made some brownies for company tonight and have already gotten into it! Hope there will be some left for the company!
Enjoy your meal as much as you can and I wish you well my friend!
HUGS, Janet

Janet, that's aweful.

I myself have had some stuff going on too. They got me scheduled for the elbow surgery on the 11th. They are going to put a shot of cortizone in my wrist for now while I am out during the surgery which is ok. In the meantime...my kidneys have started swelling again. I am waiting to get my lab work back to see what's up. I went for my yearly exam yesterday and my Gyn found some lumps in left breast that he is very concerned with. I just had a mammo done back in Sept. and ended up having my right breast biopsied for the 4th time. It was benign, so I am hoping the same of my left. I have to have an ultrasound done the 5th then see the general surgeon on the 27th. To top it all off, I chipped a front tooth lastnight and had to go to the dentist today. After filing and filing he had to put a whole filling on the tooth. I have 3 teeth that need to come out, another to fill, and then rebuild where all the teeth have been pulled out in the back lower left because it has put my bite so far off. Otherwise my teeth will keep hitting the front and they will keep chipping.

I hate dentists. All they do is go to school to learn how to inflict pain.

Anyhow, I will talk to you later. I am trying to get dinner done so I can blend mine and suck it through a straw. Yummy! NOT!

I just heard from the lady that I was supposed to accompany to Los Angeles for one more cornea transplant. Well, that surgery was postponed and she was scheduled to have sinus surgery instead thinking that is why she couldn't get rid of the eye infections. She called to say her sinus surgery was postponed because they found a spot on her lungs~actually a mass. She won't know for probably a week as to what the next step in her treatment will be now. Her pellet stove also broke and she also has termites again! The problems seem to keep coming for her. Please prayer for Betty. Thanks!

Yesterday I read from the bible in our new early morning service. I was so nervous! I think that might have been a good thing though because after service we sent a sign up sheet for people to volunteer to read from the bible or help out in other ways and several people signed up to read the bible! That way I won't have to do it every Sunday!

Awwww Bridget, I am so sorry for you in your predicament. I hope that lady finds peace soon and I hope you find another job to help with your upcoming medical expenses. I have had a lot of experience with those kinds of people who seem to care about the sick/aging person but, it's only on the outside. I look forward to a new year and the possibilities it brings to us.
I hope you are doing well also~ emoticon

Awwww Janet, I am so so sorry. You remember the lady I was telling you about that I take care of on Mondays and Tuesdays, She told me yesterday she is going to be with her husband soon. She usually asks me if I knew her husband? Then today she was just really very nasty to me. She is also getting a really bad cough. I tried saying something to her daughter but her daughter just blows everything off.

I know I should be expecting it but it still scares me because on those days her daughter doesn't even check on her before she leaves and I am there alone when she gets up. Today, she was late in getting up and I started to panic.

I don't want to give up my job because we need the extra to put away for when I have my transplants but after today... I think I may just have to.

I hope you are doing ok. emoticon

Thanks for understanding BRIDIEK. I just can't seem to shake the feeling of loss when one of the people I have called and visited passes away. A lady who just celebrated her 90th birthday died today. Leaves me with an empty feeling...so I must move on to some other volunteer work that will uplift me as well as help out in the community without making me a basket case!
