Hello All hope everyone is doing good. I am doing better with my feet but have now hurt my knee and can barely walk again one of these days i will be rid of all the pain just takes time. Is frustrating when can't do exercises due to pain and see weight go up as i am sure all of us here have gone thru. So i am trying to keep my chin up and keep going.
Peace and Blessings,
Karen

I wanted to take this time to let this dear Team Family know that I am going to have to leave, not only the leadership of the team but also the membership of the team. I have just become too overstressed and overemotional to be able to handle so much responsibility. Please forgive me for letting you down. Bright blessings to you all. Love, Dawn

I hope that you find the right job for you Milli! I am so blessed to be working at the YMCA. I can not tell you how blessed it is to LOVE my job AND to be getting healthy by doing it. My DH is still looking for a job but at least my DIL got one after 2 years of looking. My son is still looking. Hopefully everyone will find what they want and need. It's hard to make ends meet! Bright blessings to you all!

I need a job but I also want to find the right one. My friend is watching 2 kiddos and may have a 3rd in October and said I could come help her and she would give me the money for 1 of the kids. I kinda hope it pans out because it would be fun to see her everyday.

I also signed up for a place that does focus groups that my friend knows about. that would be interesting to.

back to school night is tonight. Im excited for Saben to show us around school and meet the teachers.

I just realized that i havent checked in for a REALLY long time! I just got my baby off to the bus for the first day of Middle School - 6th grade. Only snag: he and his buddy werent waiting at the right spot and missed the bus. My husband is taking them to school and they will make sure they know what bus to take home and where to catch it tomorrow morning.

My dad is doing really well. His creatin(waste in your blood when your kidneys dont work) level is down to 2.2. normal is 1 so his kidneys are functioning well even though they arent working at 100%

Karen I hope that the injections in your feet will help with your pain. Isnt it so nice when the doctors find the cause of pain and actualy say "wow you must be in a lot of pain"

Tracy - WAY TO GO!!!! good work on your blood sugar! keep it up!

It can be really discouraging when you find out your true weight. I hate when it isnt what I thought it was but at the same time at least you know where you are and can start moving in the right direction!

HOpe everyone has a great start to their week
Milli

I go to weigh today and have a Dr. appt Tues. Hope the scales are kind and my A1C is good. My morning readings have improved a lot with the help of some life styles changes I've made.

And when you were talking about the weight lecture from the Dr., I can sooooo relate! But when the Dr. lost about 100lbs., it sure was easier to take. lol

Scales can be testy for sure and unless you know the scale is calibrated you could be getting false readings.. MY home scale is still not good for me as I exceed the weight max so I weigh in at weight watchers. WTG on sticking with it!

Tracy you are so right is not a picnic to get the blood sugar down. For last month i was running up the 400's and could never get it lower than 230 but since this past week i have managed to get back to 145. I knew why my sugars were high but was nothing i could about it. When i have bad pain my bs goes way up and i had an infection another factor of bring the sugars up. Stress also does it for me. When i seen my dr told him i could now take 30 units of insulin and not get my blood sugars to go down more than 5 points for per unit of insulin at the most. So we ran thru my meter i been checking my blood on an average of 8 to 10 times a day. But at long last i have blood sugars back in control. I take metforman 1000 2x a day as well as Humalog with each meal per insulin to carb ratio as well as the scale i have for what my sugar levels are and that is my Humalog quick acting insulin. I take Lantis for a long acting insulin and i take it twice a day or every 12 hours. What helped me a lot was the minerals, vits that he put me on that are designed to help level out the sugars. When i get high sugars i have no energy and get sick to stomach makes it seem like a chore to do anything but i force myself to move not always easy. The dr and i talked about me going on the pump but i don't want to do that just yet for as a general rule i manage very well at keeping my sugars in control but can't seem to do so well when in bad pain or infection and predisone is a sure medication to raise my sugars. Thank goodness for now i am off the predisone till the 10th of next month but won't be so bad then cuz that predisone will be injections into my feet again it don't whack out my sugars like the pills do. I feel for anyone trying to keep sugars in control it can be a real task at times. I read my diabetic magazines and get some new information at times and i check on web for new developments on diabetes to keep more informed on new things that come up.
Hope your day is a good one and that others come back to post in this team i miss them.
Hugs, Karen

Hello Team,
Tracy i am still shocked that no one helped me when i feel i am just happy i was not hurt serious it was'nt so much that i needed help it was just weird no one ask and i heard folks laughing and making rude remarks it kind of stung and i was to in shock or knowing me i may have said something kind of smart aleck to the ones laughing. Hope you are doing well and not too exhausted from long hours at work.

Milli am very happy to hear that your dad is doing better and great that your is being independent but sure it must be a little nerve racking for you i sure know it was for me with my kids i was always to over protective i think.

Well at last i know why i have been in so very much pain with my foot and not able to walk much with out wanting to scream. The dr told me i have Plantar Fasciitis and gave me an injection in the heal of my foot that i will have to repeat in two weeks and hope the injections work or he said i will have to have surgery he said as bad as i am he was supprised i could walk that by the ultra sound he could tell i am having massive pain. I hate shots in my feet but i am so happy he gave it to me instant releive with the deadner in it. Still some pain but not like it was by any means. So anyways keeping my toes crossed that the injections will work and i will not have to have surgery.

my dad has a doctors appointment this afternoon. hopefully all of our questions will be answered. He is dying for a full shower and wants to go to the barber for a shave. Boths things they wouldnt let him do with the cathetar in his neck.

Last night I helped my mom in her garden. IT was good to be outside and it was a beautiful Colorado evening. I picked basil and then helped my mom with weeding. My knee was tired but held up really well. I think it is slowly getting better. Saben and I are reading "Bridge to Terabithia" together. IT is a book I loved when I was his age that he wouldnt choose on his own.

Last night Saben walked 1/2 mile to the bus stop, got on bus 2, rode to the transit center at CSU and then walked across campus to grandma's office all by himself!! He is really growing up!

My dad got the dialysis cathetar taken out of his neck this morning! hopefully no more dialysis. he has a doctor appt tomorrow and we have lots of questions!

Karen - they are not sure exactly what happened with my dad. they think either he got an African bacteria or that he was dehydrated and one of his medications became toxic in his blood.

I think its terrible that no one asked if you were OK. I would not just stand there and watch someone fall without asking if I could do something to help. Im so thankful that you were not terribly hurt! hope your hip and knee feel better soon.

Tracy - how is work going?

Milli my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Did the trip to Africa have anything to do with your father becoming ill? I pray he is much better and that he can now set up.

Tracy hope you are doing well and 4th of July weekend was nice and relaxed with family.

I went to a prade with my Mom and Aunt this past weekend and my back went out i had my legs go out from under me and fell over my walker breaking my walker and landing hard on the ground on my knee and then hip was very painful that day but today is now not so painful. It was very embarassing to me falling in front of all those folks and them watching me lay then set up on the ground and i set there for almost 20 min before i decided i could try and get up. Not one person and there was a lot of people there not one of them even ask if i was ok or i needed any help but they didn't mind standing around looking at the fat lady with a broken walker setting on the ground. I was really supprised that no ask of my well being even thou i did not need help at the time. I have personaly never passed up a person that may have injured themself and find it hard to learn that others really just don't care about the well being of someone they don't know. Is sad to know that the world has become so uncaring or selfcentered. Maybe act of kindness i have may have some small impact so that others will reflect and learn to care again all one can do is try i suppose. Ok i will get off my soap box just wanted to share my most embarassing moment with my supprise of learning how others can just not care.
Hope everyone has an awesome week.
Hugs, Karen

I hvent checked in to our team for a while. for those of you who dont know. my mom and dad were in Africa with my brother and SIL for 3 weeks. they got back to NY but my dad was/is really sick. He was on a ventilator a couple days and his kidneys arent working. After just a week he is off the ventilator his kidneys are starting to come around but he cant be upright with out throwing up. Trying to swim as much as i can and keep Saben in his normal routine and calm. the stress has kinda caught up with me and Im tired. Hoping my mom is OK. and hoping they can get home soon.

Saben invited a friend to go swimming with us and I invited a friend to go swimming and my husband has the day off. I LOVE swimming! I was in for 90 minutes today and it took that long for my hamstring to loosen up. I think I will have to rub it out later but it feels Ok now.

Tracy - HOORAY for overtime!

Karen - Its nice that you are able to see how much the husbands' friendship means to them. You are a great wife and friend.

Tracy, Hope Tonya is ok and that all turn out well. congrads on the over time.

Milli way to go one day a week is so much nicer.

LOL on the two ex husbands being friends before hand over the years they became friends and i would not mind the ex wife of the two ex husbands if she was not a nut. We are on egg shells with her cuz she will be fine one min and the next accuse someone of something they did not do and can be down right nasty doing bad things for attention. I choose to be peaceful and make the best of situations for the sake of the two ex husbands so that they as the father and step father (my husband is the step father) continue to have relationships with their kids and grandkids who are really awesome. If the ex wife don't want to make it plesant we will see to it that is is for the sake of all of us for there are times when we must all be together for socity has not yet figured out would be great to have two graduations or two weddings so all of us broken familys can have seperate days.. LOL now that is a thought

today at physical therapy I graduated from twice a week to once a week!!! I set the alarm on my phone so that I dont forget to do my exercises twice a day.

Karen - I think you did a great job at the graduation. You were respectful and then left when you couldnt be anymore.

Tracy - Tell Tanya good luck with that!!! I hope you sleep well today!

So was your husband and his ex's new hubby friends before they got married? Maybe they needed to sit beside each other,lol funny how men can do that but we women have issues with the other woman!

Took Tanya to the Dr for the blood in her stool so she needs to take samples 3 days in a row then bring it to the hospital to get checked, He told her to sop smoking,m drinking, coffee, chocolate, hot sauce, onions, tomatoes etc-- she may as well just roll over and die now, lol!


Hoping to sleep today it was a crazy night at work tonight~~

Hello Ladies wishing everyone a wonderful week.

Tracy sorry the weekend went to fast hopefuly the work week will go just as fast.

Dawn i never had that problem with the tracker but then i never had as much to track as you do so i don't know the answer sorry. Don't give up on tracking someone will come up with an answer if not on this team maybe one of the other teams.

Milli, Happy to hear you made the pool sounds like fun.

Well i went to the graduation set behind my husbands ex wife and her new husband and had my husband on my left side and husbands ex wifes first husband on my right side he is friends of ours so that was cool. The ex and her hubby were non stop loud talk thru the graduation it was really bugging me so i made an excuse and i left and went out to my truck and read my book for the last 1/4 of the graduation before i said something like shut up to the ex and her hubby who i think were either drunk or on something they were acting so loud and stange. But i did make it thru 3/4 of the graduation then went to the party afterwards and left there early to with my husband and the ex's first husband the three of us did not want any type of dispute it was a day of celebration for the young man and this turned out to be a good day with no disputes and everyone being happy i suppose. LOL now i just have next year to look forward to with more celebrations. Is not always easy to keep ones mouth shut and keep peace but is the best thing for all and other than those two being loud it was a great day..

Hey Ladies - I got in the pool on Friday. It felt awesome! My hamstring was less than happy but it still felt good. Hooray for swimming.

Dawn - You are rocking the activity! It would be frustrating for the tracker to not be acurate. Maybe you are doing SOOOOOOO much activity the tracker just cant keep up...... my only suggestion is the help tab, you seem to know more about the site than I do sorry I couldnt help you.

Karen - I bet everyone would understand if you dont go to the actualy graduation. It is easier to talk to people at the party afterwards in a comfortable setting anyway. Dont feel obligated to attend the actual graduation.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Im trying to convince the boys to go swimming with me instead of hanging in front of the TV.

Can somebody enlighten me about how the fitness minutes work? My ACTUAL minutes (CARDIO ONLY) for the month of June are 2600. My fitness minutes that are logged by Spark People (I don't know how they work it or why they only count as they do) shows 1260 for June. This does NOT take into affect my strength minutes (I do strength daily) or the 10,000 steps that I log daily doing my chair marching. Does ANYONE know how it works & why my minutes are never truly accurate, despite the fact that I log all my exercises on my tracker? I'm frustrated to the point of not using the tracker anymore.

Hello Ladies,

Tracy sorry about your weigh in but it will come off.

Milli very sorry to hear you are putting ice on your knee hope it is better really soon.

I seen my dr this week i had been worried about a knot i have almost the size of an egg that hurts that is in the center of my chest he said it is inflamation from the 5 cracked ribs i have and that is also the cuase of my chest pains. I was up 16 pounds which did not supprise me my legs are so swollen he gave me two types of water pills now till i get it down. He refered me to a foot dr for the sever pain i am having in my left heal. He up my inflamation drugs in hopes that i will have less arthritic pain and said he thought my headaches were from all this water retention. I had not heard of that one before but i suppose it is possible for i know i sure hurt a lot worse when i am retaining water. My husbands grandson is graduating from high school this weekend i was going to go but i may pass on the graduation and go to the party afterwards instead i just don't know if i can set that long on metal chairs without putting myself in more pain and i am praying it don't upset no one if i do miss the one part of his special day i up in the air if i should go and just take extra pain pill or not i don't want to hurt no ones feelings.

Dawn wish i could go swimming here it sounds so go i love the water.

Yesterday I drove for the first time. I had an appointment with the hunky surgeon! he was happy with my straightening and bending! I go back in 6 weeks. I went back out to the car and decided to try bending my knee when I got into the car. It turns out my car is really low and my knee couldnt hold me up and it bent farther than it has before and I know I broke through some scar tissue. OUCH!!!! so today Im hanging out icing my knee. I will make sure I do my exercises and some stretching to try and keep it loose.

Tracy - It is disappointing to be up in weight. But remember its a new day and we all get to start and try again

Dawn - I cant wait to get into the pool on Friday!

I can't tell you how awesome that it is to work out in the sunshine & fresh air. We had a big turn out today and had a really good time working out together. I LOVE MY JOB!!!! Hopefully you've found some way to get in some fun & fitness today! Love to you all, Dawn emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We did go to the pool but I think the first time I get in I would like my husband to be there. I walked up to the pool and then sat for a couple of hours and walked back. My knee complained so I laid on the bed and iced it for a couple of hours. While my boys were gone to baseball practice I baked a cake for my hubby's birthday tomorrow. This weekend I hope to get into the pool and try the car.

Karen - Thank goodness you have one pain gone! Im glad that you have a doctor you can trust.

Tracy - I hope you are able to work without gagging. I understand about strong perfume and cologne. Its not that I dont like it but it makes me itchy and wheezy. My mom has lotion that she loves but I am so allergic that if I touch her my right cheek and eye both get red and feel numb. Its really wierd when your eye feels numb! She doesnt use it if she is coming to my house. How is your swelling? My new knee has some swelling and my ankle to. i think tomorrow I will take 1/2 a lasik and see if that helps

LOL Tracy grab a face mask to help with the smell but make sure glasses are clean so you can enjoy the eye candy (good looking men)

Milli hope your pain is improving and that your knee is on the mend.

I will go see my dr that deals with natural meds next week he is a real dr but if he knows you prefer natural meds without the chemicals he will help to see to it that your meds are as natural as possible. Is so hard to find a dr that beleives in natural meds when ever possible i feel lucky that i have a very good one. I don't go often cuz it is very expensive but he is worth it for the help he has given me so in the long cheaper. Went to the dentist today is nice to have the mouth pain gone.

Hope all is having a wonderful week
Hugs Karen

Saben has a buddy over and they are cooking! UGH! my son wants to play on the computer while things are on the stove cooking. The mean mommy just came out! Im very laid back but I do have a limit! grrrr! Maybe I need to adopt the same rule as when my husband is cooking. Just dont look and stay in the living room. I know that I made cookies by myself when I was 10 and I think I know why mom never seemed to be around until I was finished.

Tracy - I hope that your water pill works! I hate that swollen feeling and it does hurt!

Dawn - how have you been?

Karen - I hope you are having a good day

Its a sunny day! Saben is outside playing! I cant wait to get to the pool. Have to dig the pool key out of the pile of mail that is still on the table from when I was in the hospital. Maybe we can go on Sunday.

Karen - Its so frustrating that doctors dont seem to understand that PAIN affects how you live. Im really proud of you for sticking up for yourself though. That was not a wasted trip! Hope your weather dries out.

Hello Ladies hope your weekend was a bit dryer than mine and that you are doing well.

Tracy i do hope your water retention goes down and the pain becomes much less i feel for you i know how miserable it is. I take lasix daily but sometimes it just don't seem to work. I hope your ac1 is better on your next test and mine to. I would love to try your garlic recipe my problem is i am allergic to garlic it burns my mouth and i get bad stomach aches when i eat it and my throat gets very raw.

Milli, I hope the therpy is helping your knee i know it is a slow process. Sounds like an awesome trip your family is going on it would be fun. My wrist is feeling better but with very much use right now it will start hurting again. I do wish it would slack up on the rain as well i got soaking wet just trying to put up a few items i didn't want to get wet had the chills for a good hour after that.

I did tell the dr what i posted on here so he backed off on the speech so was a wasted visit as i thought it would be. I will be going in to see my dr that deals with natural meds and see what he recommends.

Brad just took my parents to the airport. they are heading to Kenya to meet the in-laws and go on safari! Im kinda jealous even though my knee wouldnt be able to handle a trip like that

Tracy - I also have a tea that helps with water retention. it is Yogi tea and it is called womans moon cycle tea. It has a diuretic effect to it but it isnt as intense as lasik. I will drink the tea but I dont like how it tastes, too much fennel. Good luck with the swelling. I know it hurts

Another rainy day that makes you want to stay snuggled under the covers! the PT said I need to be doing the exercises twice even 3 times a day. Maybe I can fit the third time in at 4pm now since today is the last day for Oprah. emoticon I love Oprah. but our current cable package doesnt include OWN.

Karen - maybe it would be helpful if you told the doctor exactly what you said to us. The same old speech is irritating and he shouldnt bother unless he has new and/or more helpful information for you. I hear garlic is good for lowering cholesterol. Tracy has a recipe for 40 clove garlic chicken that Ive always wanted to try! Have a good day. Hopefully the doctor has something productive for you. Hope your wrist is feeling better soon!

Tracy - took my 1/2 pill of lasik so I am off to get rid of some water weight myself! LOL!

Hello Ladies hope you all had a good day. I got a call from my dr today wants me in office tommorow he was not happy with my blood test results told the nurse well if he only wants to see me for high chlostrol i will be wasting his and my time cuz i refuse to take chlostrol meds tried them once had a very bad allergic reaction and i will not try another once is enough lol she told me well you two will have fun then and he was not happy with ha1c 7.2 me either for past blood test have been under 6 but i know why blood is high so told her i was not worried over that either cuz i had been so sick for several last few months and with an infection which will make my sugars higher. So i suppose i will have talk wirh dr tomorrow. The speech i hate the worst from a dr is the weight issues but would not mind it if it was a new speech or some kind of helpful new information. I am looking forward to talking to dr about my wrist thou i woke with know on inside of wrist and pain to boot i am hoping i have not broken it or chiped a bone in it the good thing with this hand injury thou is not the hand i use the most. Wrist has been hurting since i feel a week ago but just now had big knot come up on it is why i am not sure what i did to it.
I bought some tomatoes that i will plant upside down with flowers on top in next few days. I love fresh tomatoes off the vine and if get a lot of them then i dehydrate them for the winter they are so pertty when dehydrated and lol they taste like candy to me.

Tracy hope the wraps helps with your legs and water retention.

Milli i hope your knee is getting better by the day and pain free soon.

Wow! was our weather man right! It was beautiful and sunny this morning and in the last couple hours the clouds have rolled in and it is rainy and thundering!!! This morning Saben and I transplanted the white daisy's he and Brad gave me for Mother's Day. My mom works in the agricultural department at CSU and brought us 4 basil plants which we put around the daisy's. she said she is going to bring us more basil Saturday!!!! I LOVE basil. I use my magic bullet and make basil sauce with basil, garlic, olive oil and some lemon juice if it needs some liquid. I put it in ice cube trays and freeze the left overs. i had basil sauce all winter for chicken!!! the people at CSU told my mom that the trick to getting the basil plants to grow all summer is whenever you see a place where a blossom is starting, pinch it off so that the plant doesnt go to seed. It totally worked all last summer I had basil leaves.

Karen - WOW! I can not even imagine the pain that you have. i hope those experiments with the mice keeps coming along!! I also tend to "shut down" when I have a lot of pain. I think it is a human coping mechanism. I hope the pretty flowers and anti-depressants start helping soon. I will look you up on FB for sure! on my way there now LOL!

Tracy - Way to go! any loss is a good loss even if you've lost it before!!!

Hello Team, Hope everyones weekend was a good one. I bought some plants to plant all colors of flowers thought looking at something so pertty would help lift my spirits and make the place look a bit better.

Tracy i see you on facebook too. You are doing awesome.

Milli, find me on facebook if you can i think i can be found under Karen Balcombe or kjbalcombe i play games there an on pogo but mostly on facebook but i do think i am way to addicted to the games even thou it is my escape from reality. I promise to try and be more responable and check in here daily i do so miss you all here. My back unfortunaly can not be operated on the disc are encrouched into my spinal cord and my spinal cord is balloned out some due to it so dr does not want to try surgery on me i have the same problem with the disc in my neck but only 3 of them in my neck there are 4 in my lower back. I have good days and then some days that are almost not able to handle I try hard to not complain when in pain and i tend to shut myself away when i am by trying to find anything i can to try and take my mind off it some which is usualy reading or games. Summer time is easier even thou i hate hot weather freezing cold tends to make me hurt worse so i am looking forward to some nicer weather. Love You too and keep up the great work with your knee.
Hugs Karen
