Sorry you did not sleep much last night. Nap when DH sleeps so you can continue caring for him.

Afternoon! emoticon

Not much sleep last night as usual, up at 3 fixing cereal and toast for hubby. Spent an additional 2 hours watching TV before he settled back to sleep. Showed him pictures of the great-grands that were posted on facebook. He had no recognition of who they were.

" He just wants to go home ! "

Blessings to all.

Good post, Tee! I'm glad your sister has learned to do things for herself too. It would be scary if you always had someone taking care of you, and now they were gone. On top of the grief and the loneliness, that must have been really hard.
It is already warm here this morning. It is going to be really hot today and I sure dread it. Not much anyone can do about that though:)

I am sorry DH has short time left. Make each minute with him the best. I went thru this with dad. He played violin for NY Phil. I put classical music on during meals. Dad held mom's hand during her final days on earth. He slept with her scarf when she was in hospital and after she passed. My sister did same thing when her hubby passed. If there is anything of DH that you find comforting, keep it with you. This is the time you need to be kind and gentle to yourself.

Crying is important. Grief therapist said my problem was I did not cry. And when I did shed a tear, it was not nearly enough.

My sister was married to her hubby 50 years when he died from cancer. They were together since she was 16 and said it was like losing an arm. He did everything for her. Scheduled medical appointment, filled prescriptions, shopped, cooked, social calendar, etc. She was scared after he died. Life was difficult for her since she had to learn to do things for herself. Her children work full time and live far away. I remember the day she fell apart bc she had colonoscopy and he was not there. I talked her into letting a friend be with her during procedure and doing something for her in return. It took a year for her to adjusted to the new "normal" way of living. It has been three years since he died. She still misses him, but doing okay.

We are here for you whatever the need. Just ask.

Sorry for being MIA so much. I learned this morning that I will have less than 5 Months with Hubby. The main objective now is to keep him comfortable and safe. Reality has left him far to often now. It's very hard for me to watch him decline so much each and every day. He is my soulmate and will always be. Being alone and watching him slowly leave me is beyond words.

Tee, it seems crying is the only stress reliever I have left. I'm here alone thinking of that last kiss, hug, bath I give, food I feed, tear I wipe and that last breath. I will not pretend to be brave as, I'm down right scared.

I greatly appreciate each and every one here. Keep that support coming as I need all I can get.
.
Peace, Love and Blessings to All from Me!

I'm still among the population, getting 3 to 4 hours of sleep even with crying myself to sleep, crying when asked about hubby, miss my girls and the princess and most of all miss deeply the man I married almost 30 years ago. He is out of reality frequently now and only wants to go be with his family that have passed on. At present he is short of breath with eating and transferring from bed to chair and back. Hospice has been a big help to me and to hubby. All the time I can be with him is precious, frequently I'm afraid to be alone.

When was the last time you hugged, laughed with and told someone you loved them. Make the best of each day, as tomorrow is not promised.

I am glad you see new doctor soon and hope this doctor orders mammo. My ins pays for one a year, but I waited four years to have one.

My mouth hurt yesterday afternoon. Maybe it was due to eating wheat squares for breakfast. It felt like capped tooth was going to fall out while I was talking to friend.

Nothing went right yesterday. I was frustrated, angry, etc. from not enough sleep, forgetting to take antibiotic, delaying meal, etc. I am off to bed and sleeping in, instead of swimming tomorrow.

Cooled off to 70s. Wind actually made it feel cold last night. It was hot the night before and reason I slept with fan going.

I hope everyone is okay. Blessings.

Happy you got the bed in and everything, Michele!
I go to the new dr. on July 6th and hope to get scheduled for a mammogram too. My ex pcp asked me 3 times if I had my mammo over the last 3 years and I told her no and she said she would put a referral in for me. She never did. Maybe it was 2 years, I'm not sure anymore. But it's been a long time!

I woke yesterday feeling energetic and good yesterday. Maybe the tooth/sinus infection is gone. I find out more on Wednesday when I see dentist. Yesterday was first time I made arthritis pool class on time in more than 6 months. I pushed the envelope, swam laps and attended kickboxing too. I am exhausted tonight and going to try doing without pain medication since it may be reason my ankles are swollen.

76 degrees here. Gym pool was crowded with kids and parents. It is going to be long summer.

I tried applying for SS on line today. Site dislikes my apt number and kept stating error. So, I am going to call and make appointment. I put my papers in safe place last month and can't find them. Praying I find them today, and meet with SS this week.

Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying summer.

Glad hospital bed arrived. Hope downsizing went well. How is DH doing?

I had mammo yesterday. My last one was in 2011. Results in two weeks.

Rheumy blood tests were normal. Thyroid, Addison and gyn check next. Then, sleep study and, lastly, colonoscopy. That should do it for this year.

Oprah and my neighbor schedule their screenings on their birthday every year. Good idea.

I hope you are getting much needed rest Michele.

Wishing everyone a fabulous Friday.

I am feeling much better. Pain, swelling, fatigue only strikes late afternoon or night. So, I take pain medication with dinner. I was able to breathe thru my nostril for first time in over a year today. I am going to try walking or running in the pool today since my ankles are swollen and I can't swim. I have mammo tonight. Rheumy sent referral for sleep study, which I am going to put off until my mouth/sinus heals and stitches removed.

Weather was a little warmer yesterday. More sunshine during day, but foggy at night. Weatherman predicts 90+ for Sunday, but I am not sure coastal area will be that hot.

Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying week.

My tooth needed pulling. I was okay with that since friends said it was painless with this dentist. Being in chair for two hours was unexpected. Roots of tooth were in my sinus. He said he never came across a case like mine in his 43 years in practice. Stitches for two weeks, no soup and swimming until stitches out in two weeks. I had to use straw to drink since there are holes in sinus from removing roots. I need to pinch my left nostril in order to drink from it.

I have had problems with that sinus for few years. X-rays, etc ENT ordered showed nothing. I hope the extractions is blessing in disguise and ends my sinus problems.

We had earthquake around 11:30 pm tonight. Shaking, but no damage. Hotter here. We call earthquakes in this weather, shake and bake.

I hope everyone is cool and enjoying summer.

It is going to heat up in Ca this week. I will miss coastal fog, and cool temperatures at night, but can start on my tan. I heard that tan women look thinner. lol

Dental appointment today. I am nervous. This is the first time I had dental work since being diagnosed with Addison. Many things I need to be concerned about depending on the procedure.

I was going to go to Church with my GD this morning, but she has plans to go to another Church with her friend. I guess I should have called her last night. I really don't feel like going anywhere though, so I guess that's a good thing.

I had a long talk with rheumy yesterday about pain and sleep problems. I smoked some when I do not sleep and need energy to work. She and clinic doctor said smoking causes adrenal problems and probably reason I have the problem.. Both recommended stopping altogether.

A woman patient entered waiting room after discussion. She was coughing up a storm, short of breathe and using oxygen. Her coughing reminded me of when I was swimming the previous day. So, I made decision to stop all smoking. This decision will be toughest on days I need energy to work, but I am tougher ( I hope).

Sorry it is humid there and you and DH stuck indoors. We had high humidity earlier this week and I disliked the way I felt.

Humidity seems worse here at night when temp in the 70s.

Humidity today carries with it a air quality advisory! Chest pressure when getting the newspaper was to darn heavy. Now, to keep DH inside once again today. Someone with 47% of Lung Function does not need the outside air. So, today working on the inside air along with his O2 blood saturation.

Have a cool and enjoyable weekend! emoticon

I remember putting fall/winter clothing in storage and taking out summer clothing. We have to keep all our clothing out year round here bc the weather changes so much. It was hot yesterday and I wore shorts. Cool and cloudy today and need to wear warmer clothing.

Nice that a Hospice volunteer will stay with DH next week while to see PCH and shop.

I grew up eating Med diet. We ate at least two meals consisting of beans or lentils. I read two meals like this is healthy. So, I need to add them back into my diet.

I am off to see rheumy and pick up samples of Cresta from cardiologist.

Went out to get the mail, discovered concrete was hot. air thick and by the time I went back in I was starting to sweat. Put the air on, fixed a hot coffee and now a lot cooler. So, Fall and Winter are back in storage with Summer out of storage and a shopping trip is in the planning. I have a Hospice Volunteer with DH for next Friday as I hve an appointment with PCP... then this toughy is going shopping.

Only here on Mediterranean Diet?

I'm glad your bone density test is good! That's true that they usually only call when something is wrong...that would scare me too when they called, but glad it turned out right:)

It was cool and rainy off and on all day yesterday. Went from 104 on Tuesday to 74 on Wednesday and is supposed to be hot again today. Weird weather that's for sure:)

I have been smoking almost 2 packs a day again, and get winded just walking out to the car. I have to start walking again, and cut back down again-but it's really hard to get motivated:(

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

I have been laying in bed, recovering from cancer, chemo and radiation and all it's side effects for 2 years.
I feel I have 'recovered' now and it's time to move on!

Three digit temp in some areas of Ca and 70s, windy and nice near the coast. Weatherman predicted lightning and rain in some areas today.

My sinuses drained all night. My ear aches today. Can't figure that out. My stomach ached up last night. I had to eat yogurt to calm down.

My bone density was good. Doctor said to continue taking Vit D and lifting weights. Mammo next.

Wishing everyone a terrific Tuesday.

Seems this area is minus rain fr the year. Can;t figure that one out as daily rain is getting to be the norm. Temps, humidity increasing alone with the rain.

Tee hope that abscess slows down for you.

Have a good day everyone! emoticon

I have abscessed tooth and dentist can't see me until next week. I went to walk in clinic for antibiotics. Doctor told me to take antibiotics with probiotics, Advil for pain, and rinse with salt water three times daily. Advil and antibiotic seems to work during day but pain worse tonight.

My doctor's office left a message on my answering machine to phone office about my bone density results today. They never call when test is normal and I am worried.

Nice weather here. Too bad I am not well enough to enjoy it.

I had bone density today. Test took all of 15 minutes.

I thought I was doing good today until I showed up at bank to scold them for not sending me a new ATM card cause mine had expired. Turns out my card was good until 2016. I have trouble with what year it is since I work on stuff for 2013, 2014 and 2015.

I went to look for a purse and ended up trying on clothing afterward thinking it would lift my spirit. Was I wrong. No purses and either clothing did not fit or look good. Time to try new diet.

I go for bone density test tomorrow. I have not had one in almost 10 years. My hip ached last month. I take cortisol which can cause thin bone and anxious to see if taking vitamin D-3 and lifting weights is working. Scan facility called to remind me not to take calcium supplement for 2 days before test and appointment time tomorrow. I stopped taking multi vitamin that contains calcium and feeling tired.

Scheduling mammo, gyn exam and colonoscopy are next. I put off all of them until I had supplemental ins and no out of pocket expense.

Two questions.

1) Every time I check into this group, it says I am not a member? How can this be?

2) When I click on email welcoming new member I can not locate that member or their post. Why is this happening?

I wish I could start to de-stress around 7 pm.

My doctor only recommends under tongue B-12. It caused me to eat non stop and insomnia. So I stopped taking.. I don't know why my doc recommended it since my levels are normal.

An over the counter sleep medication kept me awake for two days. I need to be careful about taking over the counter, supplements, etc since they may interfere with my thyroid, and/or adrenal condition.

I took more cortisol med today and started falling asleep in library while reading magazine tonight. Wide awake when I got home. Wish I could move my bed into the library.

Thats funny, both teas help me to settle down each night or even during the day. At the same time we each react to things differently i.e. a sleeping pill will kept me awake and B12 will put me to sleep. Recently I have started to destress around 7 at night and off the PC by 10. Now sleep is much better as long as DH has no problems thru he night. Guess we all have to find that right routine for sleep.

Yes....I drink it nightly. I tried several teas. Holy Basil tablets worked well, taste terrible and too expensive for my pocket book now. Holy Basil tea was $10 for box of 10 bags.

Wind kicked up in the middle of night and woke me. My windows are shaking from wind now. Sunny, and cool enough for jeans and sweatshirt.

Someone gave me lavender scented beads. Lavender is suppose help relax and sleep, but it hasn't done a thing for me.

I need to find something that helps me sleep thru the night beside Rx med that can become addicting.

Rain, rain go away come back another day////// I know rain is needed for the water table. But this is enough! No wind breaker this day, jacket back out. Would not emoticon be surprised to find frost tonight! Would you like to build a emoticon .

We have been quiet on this front on the inside this weekend. Been burning a candle at night if for nothing else to cut down on those nasty cravings happening with the stress. So far so good. Besides help melt away stress. emoticon

Have a great week! emoticon

Sunny and 70 here. Suppose to be warmer Friday with the best day on Sat. Then, June gloom ( fog, clouds, etc.) returns.

I took sleep med and slept 9 hours. It was a deep sleep, which showed me that this type of sleep leads to no pain. I swam and lifted weights in the afternoon. Then, went to Walmart to buy replacement parts for my stove. They fit and I am able to cook without pots and pans tipping.

Everyone loved the cake.

The weather the last couple days has been perfect! Especially for sleeping!!

I have another busy weekend.Tonight I have to meet the cross country coach to go over stuff for the camp. Friday night I am meeting friends for dinner. Saturday we're going to Wisconsin for the day, a friend's daughter is having an 8th grade graduation party. And then Sunday my son has to participate at graduation (he is in the band). Then he was invited to several grad parties.

Sun showed up yesterday with temps in the 70s. My body can tell the difference. No sneezing, nasal congestion or sneezing. Weather should stay the same thru weekend. June gloom expected next week.

I have not slept in two days or exercised since Sunday. I hope the sleep med I took works and swimming isn't a chore today.

Sun came out at 5:30 pm yesterday. Cloudy, windy, cool and 60 degrees today. Reminds me of England. Thank goodness I don't live in Seattle. Suppose to be 70 degrees this weekend.

Errands on the agenda for today before rain hits between 2 & 3 this afternoon. Highs in the low 80s with a muggy dewpoint for today. Continuing with uneventful days for DH, making my days more bearable. Actually have not had a craving for the past 7 days nor a headache.

Looking forward to a better week! emoticon

I'm glad you had a good weekend! I cleaned up my patio and it feels good! My son put pallets under my 'pool" garden and now I can garden without having to get down on the ground. I went to breakfast with my sisters one morning and with my DD and DS the other. So I had a good weekend too:)
It is going to be in the 90's by next weekend. Summer is coming fast!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty nice. I was able to help my aunt clean up a flower bed, went to my nephew's graduation, and relaxed yesterday.

Gusty winds, heavy clouds rain off and on with temps in the low 70s. So much for the 80s today as well as that warm emoticon

Have a emoticon week! emoticon

Glad you feel better today and weather is nice.

Cloudy, windy and chilly here. I am counting days to next weekend when the sun and heat returns.

I don't think I would go back to that store again either! What a hassle!
The weather here was really nice yesterday and is supposed to be the same today. I didn't feel good yesterday so didn't do much, but feel better this morning:)

I went back to store to retrieve the bag of produce the cashier forgot to put in my cart. The store manager said she was giving the bag to produce dept for me to pick up. They could not find the bag. So, I had to shop for the produce over again. Argh! The cherries I bought on Friday were sweet. Cherries I got to replace them were not. Last time I shop at this store.

I attended a farewell bbq today. My friends are moving to Tenn in three weeks. I will miss spending time with them.

We are not exactly having bbq weather. It was chilly, foggy and very windy today. I was cold in the gym Zacuzzi and pool today. I hope weatherman is right about sun and warmer temp tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a nice Memorial Day.

Nice you had a sunny day and got 6 hours of sleep Michele. I hope you were able to sleep more last night.

I have been dealing with hip/spinal pain. Yesterday I felt well enough to food shop. Big mistake. I waited 20 minutes at the deli counter to find out if store had sale roast beef. There were three people behind counter and employee served a woman that walked in 20 minutes after me. I blew my top with the manager and got my order for free. Then, I had to wait for employees to stock so I could finish shopping. I returned home only to find the cashier did not put a bag of produce in my shopping cart. I have to go back to the store today to retrieve my produce. This is the last time I shop there.

It was cloudy this morning. Sunny and 60s now. I am going to farewell bbq tomorrow. A good friend is moving to Tenn in three weeks.

Warm sunny/cloudy day. Got in close to 120 minutes of that good Vitamin D. emoticon

Got a good 6 hrs. of sleep last night especially since DH slept for 10 hrs. I'll settle for 7 hrs. for tonight and since DH was awake most of the day and evening " It's Possible ."

Enjoy this 3 day weekend and be Safe. emoticon

Your body probably needed the sleep. I hope you feel refreshed today.

I slept 9 hours last night and feel good today.

Sunny, cloudy, windy weather in the 60s here.

Blanket weather last night and tonight. Slept good since it was chilly for a change. DH slept quieter last night and so far this morning he is in a good mood. However, that can change within a second.

emoticon The patients I have cared for in the past and now DH, who carried the diagnoses of COPD & Lung Cancer in the end are by far do not have an easy death. It is not easy on the person or his/her families. Smoking contributes over the years to Lung and Coronary Conditions. I'm watching DH slowly slipping away and he iswishing he had quit long ago. Try as hard as you can not to put your families or yourself through this last stage of Life. The Life of more than one person is in your hands. emoticon

Suns out, clouds moving in ...20 degrees lower today than yesterday. Guess I'll hold out for next week to switch out all Winter clothing. Good news on the smoking front - have noticed a small decline in DH's smoking over the past few days. Hopefully this will continue!

Not all weather in the lower forty-eight will be wet. Enjoy your out door time as best you can for this weekend. emoticon

You are busy. Hope you enjoyed seeing your Navy buddies. Nice of you to volunteer to cook for your son's camp. I am sure you will get more than enough exercise in June.

Hi all, hope everyone is doing well. I haven't been doing what I should be the past couple weeks. I think the excitement of seeing my Navy buddies and the end of my son's junior year in high school has gotten to me. I have been eating alright, just not exercising or posting as much as I have in the past. Hopefully I can back in the swing of things soon.

I have volunteered to be the lead cook at my son's cross country camp in June. I don't think I will be able to take my lap top as they probably won't have wi-fi where we are going (it's a Christian camp in Wisconsin). So I may be away from SparkPeople for that whole week.

I miss kids playing in the street. When my sister visited us after we moved to CA, she said where are all the kids on your block. I replied, piano, dance, art, etc lessons. No one plays in the street here.

Summer around here means: no school buses, kids playing in the streets and teenage driver emoticon s with loud mufflers and radios. Oh for the peasce and quiet of Winter. Hope you all had an emoticon day.

How is everyone doing today? I took a new med yesterday and had terrible pain all day. I did not take the medication today and pain gone.

60s and cloudy here. Not my favorite weather, but better than rain.

I am sorry weather kept you from working out this week. Are you following a specific diet? I lost 2 lbs after kickboxing and gained it back 24 hours later. I guess my body needs a kickboxing workout daily to keep the weight off.

Thank you Michele. I am thinking hard about what we all went through when my sister was in the hospital and they told us twice to come in and say goodbye. she has severe emphysema, and they said one more cold or flu, and she won't make it next time. She doesn't remember any of it until she was finally getting better, but what we went through, was almost too much to bear. I think about that often now.
Hearing what you are going through also, is really make me think hard!
Good job Kahla, you are doing great!
Tee, I hear it's going to really rain in So.Cal. today? We are getting a little rain but not enough to even count:(
