Pets are part of the family and our love for them is real. We had a cat we thought was killed by dogs appear after over 90 days. She was fine and we think that she had been "rescued" by someone and she escaped to come back to her first home.

We finally got moved into our new home. Now to get it unpacked & organized before guest come for Thanksgiving. Not thinking it's feasible. But am very happy to be in our new home. Sad news is that Sunday our dog Lucy disappeared. We have walked all over the woods looking for her, pasted it all over Facebook, called vets, neighbors. She is 8 yrs old so really don't think she'd run away. We only moved next door on family property so she's not confused about that. We are afraid either someone stole her or maybe a hunter mistook her for a deer & shot her. I just miss her terribly. It hurts to not see her face at my door each morning. Would appreciate any prayers for her safe return.

Great news! We closed on our new house. We should be able to move in about 2 weeks. So I am very busy packing the last minute items. Under the sinks, cabinets, pantry. I am so excited. Trying to get more walking in since we have this gorgeous fall weather. Knee is 99% better. Hope everyone is doing well.

I haven't been on here in a very long time, have been a member for awhile but I just recently got my computer going again. I really need encouragement, I tend to get depressed about my weight. I am going to try to do better about getting on here, even if it is nothing more than saying hello and God Bless...

Since the team is so small I am saying goodbye here, I thought it would be different this time, I expected too much. It's no ones fault on this team, it's the whole SP thing. The time I spend here I can be doing things I enjoy more.
I will close my SP account tomorrow so this will not be deleted until you can get this message.

All is well here, still having bouts with the foot, how long does it take to heal? I sure do enjoy the cooler air but it's hay fever season. This is the time of year that I usually get hit with allergies. I noticed many fields of cotton still to be picked, might be awhile with the rains of this week, thought my window would break early this morning, some reported quarter size hail!!!

Shoot I would have loved to come watch. Have you done other productions? I've always been interested in small theatre but fear keeps me from trying out. I do support the arts at Imperial Dinner Theatre in Pocahontas, AR and Foundation of Arts in Jonesboro. I have gotten to know the cast in several shows. I keep trying to will my courage to volunteer even if back stage.

Prayers for Francie and her family.

Yes, I'm packing as much as possible in between doc appts for me, Mom & hubby...lol We went to Marion, IL yesterday to the Veteran's Hospital for them to do a pain evaluation on my husband. Based on his neck & back MRI's there is nothing that can surgically to help his pain. So this VA Hosp has a "Pain Boot Camp". It is held for 3 days once a month. We will be going Nov. 12-15th. They will work with both of us on relaxation techniques, alternative ways to relieve pain besides medication, we will meet with a dietician (he's diabetic), a counselor, and do physical exercises for those 3 days. Since I also suffer from chronic pain so this will also be very beneficial to both of us. They will even have a session for aquatic exercises which I am very excited about. They will pay for the hotel for 3 days, food, mileage. We were both so excited about this when we left. At some point when you have constant pain you have to do something or live the rest of your life medicating yourself all the time. I think this will be a wonderful program for both of us to get our food & exercise habits back under control.

Has this weather not been awesome? I wish we could get some rain to settle the dust and help allergies but the temperature has been wonderful. We did notice some trees changing some color already farther north. I wonder what the colors will be like when we go in November.

We are hoping to close on the house by November 6st, maybe sooner since the appraisal man came yesterday and said it could be ready for the VA by next week. I need to get busy.

Bill's funeral will be Thursday so keep the family in prayer that day.

It looks like it will rain Thursday, we really need some and then cooler weather. Looking forward to real Fall weather.
Tricia, are you still packing? I know you will be glad when you can get into your new home!
Rusty, will you be playing Santa in a play? From your picture, you already have the white beard emoticon

Oh Martha, my heart just broke when I read this. I know God only gives us as much as we can carry but this seems too much Lord. She has went through so much these past months with her health, her Mom & Bill's, now to lose them both together. So very very sad. I wish I could just take some of the burden off of her. Prayers Prayers for her and her family.

I checked Francie's FB page first thing this morning, Bill went to be with the Lord early last night. So much for Francie to bear, funeral yesterday evening for her Mom and then that night Bill was gone. Her life changed in such a short time but she is a strong woman and with the Lord's help, she will do well. Please continue prayers for her and her family.

Yes Rusty it has been a beautiful week. I totally understand the thyroid problem. I also have one that runs sluggish. I just got tested again this week. I usually can tell because all I want to do is sleep and I start losing my hair. Waiting to hear results.

Keeping Francie in my prayers. She has been carrying such a load for so long and now losing her Mom and Bill in Hospice. I just wish there was more I could do than pray and send her notes on FB.

BTW, what play are you in?

Francie contacted me on FB, Bill is getting weaker and will be going to Hospice House tomorrow morning. Francie has a full plate and need prayers to stay strong through the funeral of her Mom and Bill's illness.

Rusty, doctors won't tell you that you are lazy emoticon but you know when you are! And you also know when you eat too much and too much of the things that are bad for you, just saying emoticon Did you get some meds to help your thyroid? There are plenty of naturals that can help a person and places to find out the symptoms of low thyroid, here on the Internet. We ALL need accountability at times! I need it also, just ordered some pants and if I will lose 5 pounds they will fit much better emoticon

Please Sparkmail the address and name. Had some blood work done and my thyroid is off so I was told that would cause me to be real sluggish and gain weight. I fear the sluggishness was me being lazy and hurting and the weight gain is from eating 3000+ calories many days

When I get in these small cast plays I wonder what I was thinking, having to learn a lot of lines and stick out like an elephant. Then I remember it is fun. At least it has been fun.

Back home from "college". Laptop hard drive died so I didn't have internet since I was to hardheaded to open Embassy Suites Wi-Fi on my phone. Wife asks why I got a smart phone if I don't use it and I said to see grands when we talk.

Thanks Rusty. I am so happy I got this surgery now and it has done so well.

Will keep Francie & her Mom in my prayers. It just seems more than one person can bear. I just feel so bad for her.

Martha, I hope you are doing well today.

Francie just posted on FB that her Mom has been admitted to the hospital with very low blood pressure and Infection. Francie finally got the shot in her knee plus a cortisone in the bursa below the knee. She really needs prayers, so much to bear at one time!

Rusty, my new knee is better every day and the pain I do have now is nothing compared to past 7 years. I still do my exercises every day and feel better every day. I feel very blessed.

Martha, I am so excited about this new adventure that I feel like I need to pinch myself. My MIL and I are going to have so much fun decorating and arranging furniture, buying new things and planning things. She has a great eye for decorating and looking at something old and making it look new. Now to get all this stuff gone through and packed...WHEW!!

Tricia, you would not believe how much I sold and gave away so I could move into this 2 bedroom apartment! So many things I could use here but didn't think I would need at that time. Your moving is a new/great adventure! Have fun!
Rusty, we are so blessed if we would just look around but most of us just complain without thinking how it sounds.

Blessings surround us if we only look. Friday afternoon I was visiting with a younger and much lighter man who was struggling to walk. He explained that he had just had his knee manipulated so it would bend after knee replacement months ago. I was walking with ease, compared to the previous 3 years, the 3rd day after replacement. I did not know how good I had it and still enjoy it.

I'm actually enjoying this cooler weather except for my joints. They are complaining about wet, cool weather. My MIL and I canned 15 pints of salsa today, probably the last of the tomatoes for this year.

Well we got approval on house and hoping to close by November 6st. Now on to packing. WOW how do we accumulate so much stuff? Have cleaned out china cabinet and most of dining room stuff we are taking. Biggest thing next is cleaning out the desk. We won't be taking much furniture with us since the new house is fully furnished. So we'll be getting rid of some of the furniture we have and some will stay here if my sister-in-law & her husband want it. They will be moving in here when we move. I'm more excited than I can possibly say. This was my husband's brother's home and he passed away 2 years ago today. I think he would be very happy that we are getting to buy his home and enjoy it.

Glad you're back with us Rusty. I missed your wit.

Sat. and Sun. I had to turn on the heat, looks like we will be back in the 80's by Thurs. I have never heard this before, someone said they thought we were having squaw Winter, new one for me.
It's Fair time in Craighead county, I live close enough I might be able to hear some of the things going on. The ladies in our Sunday school class said that the traffic is terrible here on 49 north during Fair time, it's good to have a road that goes around this highway. Since the hospital went in we are getting more businesses being built, literally by the day on this highway. Would be nice to own some property to sell about this time emoticon

Thanks for noticing my absence, Uverse showed up Saturday from the Phillipines and repaired their problems and replaced my equipment. I was getting trained in tasers so I wasn't there but wife was home with her mother this weekend to see son in golf tournament (his team won) and she let him in and I now have internet at home again.

This news just breaks my heart about Bill and Francie. I feel totally helpless knowing what to say or do for them during this difficult time. All I can do is pray for them both and be there if Francie needs me.'

I am worried about Rusty. It's been awhile since we heard from him and he's not in the Healthier Arkansas group either. Praying all is well.

Francie wanted me to post this to the team.

Bill has been placed on Hospice care. He has opted out of chemo due to his liver cancer being stage 4 and metastasized. He had one big one time radiation treatment on his back. We're just taking it one day at a time and leaving in God's hands. He is a faithful Christian and I know he is ready even though it breaks my heart. He has lost about 40 lbs since May. They have him on Fentanyl pain patches and Dilaudid pills. They're trying their best to keep him comfortable and as pain free as possible. I appreciate everyone's caring thoughts and prayers

Uverse is out so I have no phone or internet until the boat from the the Asian Islands send a repair man.
Hospice can be a time to enjoy and prepare for the transition. For my mother it helped the family a lot. Everyone visited with knowledge and the quality of time spent seemed to be higher. Prayers to the family.

emoticon Tricia, it sounds like the Lord is in this and when He is, it will work out better than you would ever expect! You will need to share photos with us. When my husband passed I really had no plans but it seems things just happened, and most were not what I expected, but it worked out so well and very quickly, so I knew the Lord was leading me here.
I haven't seen any signs of Rusty, which is unusual. Francie doesn't do or say much on FB so I guess they are just living day by day and I know that's even hard for both of them.
We do need more members to make this a good team, and I admit, I sometimes wonder what's the use. emoticon

No actually it is smaller but 2 story & basement. It is 3 yrs old and has glassed in sunroom on back of house. I am so excited because we talked to the loan officer today and he said we were approved pending getting all necessary document in. We are hoping to close by November. I started some packing today. Since house is furnished we won't be moving much furniture. Some I will give to family or charities. Some will stay here as this was my husband's Grandma's house & furniture belonged to her. My husband's sister from Little Rock will be moving into this house. Her husband works for Fed-Ex and got a transfer to here.I can't say how excited I am about this. We will actually be closer to Lake Charles & have a better view of critters around here. Today I saw 4 turkeys and a red hawk in the horse pasture.

Have we heard anything from Rusty? I've been wondering about him, if all is ok or he is just busy?

Tricia, I know you are glad to be driving again, it's the pits to have to depend on others who drive. Is your new house bigger than the one you are now living in? I know you are looking forward to all the things that goes with a new home!
Today is much cooler, haven't had my nose out the door but first thing this morning it was just muggy.

Yes will have to start all landscaping and herb & veggie new. There has been no landscaping done at all. Kind of excited to be able to do exactly what I want. Really won't have to do anything inside the house since only 3 yrs old and I was in love with the house when they built it.

My husband was stationed in Millington in the 80's. He loves going over there and talking to the soldiers and veterans there. Also he got a military haircut and he was so excited. He's not found a civilian yet that cuts his hair how he really likes it. Just an old Navy seadog...lol

I bet you are really going to enjoy the cooler weather this week. I know I am going to be glad to get outside without the heat pressing in. Hoping to can some salsa later this week. Been freezing my tomatoes whole till I got enough to can a dozen or so jars.

I drove the car for the 1st time today. Went to my sisters for a visit, we went and had lunch and then I drove home. Knee is sore tonight but no worse than normal. Life is getting better.

My Uncle, over 50 years ago, was based at Millington, he and my Aunt lived on base in a little trailer. It sounds wonderful for everyone if you can get that loan! Will you have to start all new flower and vegetable gardens? It will be a great adventure, do it while you are young and can enjoy it. emoticon By the way, thank you for the goodie! emoticon

Thanks Martha, I will check those out for him. The boots help when he uses them but he is stubborn and doesn't like to sit still enough to wear them.

This cooler weather will be welcome to me. I love warm weather to get in the pool but the humidity kills me. It really makes my skin hurt from the Fibromyalgia. Since it affects my skin sensitivity and already makes my skin feel like it's on fire the humidity makes it feel worse. I look forward to cooler but not cold...lol We're never really happy are we.

Been a very busy day today. We went to Millington, TN (Naval Base outside Memphis) and did some shopping at the commissary for groceries, then I found some clothes for church at the Navy Exchange. Then my hubby and I applied for a house loan. We are trying to buy his brother's house that is actually behind our house. His brother passed away 2 years ago and his partner wants to move back to Texas so he wants us to buy the house, fully furnished at way below cost. Please say a prayer that the loan goes through, I really love this house. It's just 3 years old and has a beautiful view of the lake. I believe we have a good chance to get it just don't want to get my hopes up...lol But I'm starting to pack things up. It would be an easy move because we won't be taking most of our furniture. My husband's younger sister is planning on moving into our house when it all happens.

Tricia, check out exercises for Plantar Fasdciitis on YouTube, I found many this morning and the exercises sure help, keeps that area stretched so it doesn't hurt as much. From what I understand, the exercises help more than keeping weight off it, that is, sitting with your foot up. emoticon
Are you all ready for cooler weather? It's really been a mild Summer and it's almost over for 2014!

My husband has Plantar Facilitates (sp) and he has the boot. He is not regular on wearing it so it hasn't helped as fast as it should. But when he wears it he does say it feels better afterwards. He gets big knots in the arch of his feet. I hope the boot will help you Martha.

I just feel so bad for Bill & Francie. I feel so helpless. I went through this with a couple of my Mom's sister's and it so hard on the family. Cancer just tears the family into shreds watching their loved one hurt and not be able to make the pain go away. I just wish there was something I could do to help them out. I guess just keeping in touch with Francie and letting her know we can is all we can do.

Trying to get my eating and exercise back on track. Luckily I didn't gain but 2 lbs but I feel very bloated from too much salt.Drinking lots of water to flush out my system.

Plantar Fasciitis is a REAL pain as I witnessed my wife and daughter suffer from it. They wore a boot that stretched the foot ? and helped remedy the condition. Get well soon.

Got tired of sitting with my foot propped up , using a stool here at the computer. We have a new member, check out the 'wall', please make her welcome.
Not much going on with me. It is very chilly outside this evening and will be more so as the week goes by.
Tricia, sounds like a WONDERFUL trip! The picture you posted is a true memory picture of the ladies in your family. It's just me and my sister now and she's not in good health.
Enjoy your Mom, one day you will be so glad you have spent this time with her. My Mom passed away in Nov. of 2011, just before her 94th birthday.
Yes Rusty, we need to continue to pray for Bill and also Francie as she takes care of him.

I made it back from Florida late last night. We had a wonderful time, sightseeing, walking, playing in pool & hottub & walking on beach. Went out on 3 hour Dolphin Tour to Shell Island. We didn't get to see dolphins that trip, they were being elusive. Fed the seagulls, watched pelicans & seagulls dive for fish, saw hermit crabs & sand crabs. Passed a huge Japanese Freighter very close to our boat. Beautiful boat tour, it was so fun. The next morning we watched dolphins from our balcony...lol Walked out on the fishing tour watching the fisherman pulling in Spanish mackerel and needle fish. Had some wonderful food every day and our rooms at the resort were wonderful. Ocean view on 3rd floor and it was great. This was our best Mom & sister trip so far.

While I was gone I got a message from Francie she wanted me to pass on to y'all. Please keep her & Bill in our prayers. This situation is very dire.


From Francie:

His Liver cancer is stage 4 and has metastasized. Oncologist said in his opinion chemo not a good option but choice would be up to Bill. He said why put myself through that if it won't help. They still want to see if he can tolerate the radiation on his back. They changed his pain meds. He now has a pain patch that will change out every 3 days plus 2 Dilaudid pills every 3 hours as needed. It is already working better. Oncologist said main thing is to try their best to keep him as pain free as possible. He told Bill just to eat what he could and not worry about what or the amount. He was down another 10 lbs since 21/2 weeks ago. Lost 34 since May.

Swimming is great but no pool year round and this summer the cataract surgery banned water in the eyes. Knee braces never did any good for me. There is a brace that is extremely expensive but it is built to take pressure off the knee as in the link between the upper strap and lower strap keeps "extra space" in the knee and reduces the knee bearing as much weight. I might have tried it before the replacement for I was desperate. Synvisk?sp- chicken beak- helped for a short while and then faded away.

I think walking is the BEST exercise a person can do! I think it helps me with my hip and I sure don't want that to come back.
Francie posted on FB that the brace for her leg isn't helping and Bill's pain meds don't sit well on his stomach. Continued prayers for both of them.

Accountability is an issue for me. Friends took me out last night and we went to a buffet. I stopped at around 100,000 calories but I did not go back for seconds on any item. Law speak for I made several trips to try everything but didn't get seconds on what I found to be good, of course portion control was affected by how high I could stack on a 9 inch plate. Oysters, ribs, steak, stir fry, fried catfish, fried shrimp, bbq shrimp, smoke links, blackberry cobbler and soft serve ice cream. I was going to run it off today but it is raining soooooooo......

When I was a kid, my Dad always enjoyed going back to places he/we had lived when he was a young man/father. My husband and I went back to his roots in a cabin his Dad built in the hills of Virginia. I guess we all have good times we could tell.
I have been having a problem with an eye today, think it's allergies, burning/sore, so much better now than earlier. I thought I should come here and start posting, this keeps me accountable.

Several years back my wife had a relative getting married in Texas and my mother and older sister went to the wedding with us. My wife left early to help so my mother, sister and I went through the places my mother had grown up in and visited the sites we went to as children. It was a great trip with a lot of family history being reviewed and new stories being remembered.

I had a really good day today. Went shopping with my younger sister for some clothes for our Florida trip. We are leaving Sunday and driving half-way and then getting to Panama City Beach on Monday. I am so excited for this trip with my Mom and sisters. I value these trips so much, spending time with just us girls with my Mom. I know someday I will look back on these trips and be so very thankful that we took each one.

I am happy to hear that Bill is getting to go home. I hope and pray that God will keep his healing, protective hand on them both during this trying time.

This heat has just about wore me out. The only relief is my pool. I am enjoying every moment in it. I use it in the afternoons for my therapy. I still do my exercises in the morning and ride the bike but working out in the pool is much easier on my joints and much cooler.

Everyone stay as cool as possible. I will check in as much as possible on my trip.

Francie posted on FB that Bill would be going home today, I know they are both tired of the hospital.
We need some rain badly, maybe soon if the predictors are right, hope so!

I didn't get a change to come her yesterday, cleaning for apartment inspection and then went shopping when my daughter got off work. Haven't heard from Francie, hope all is better. What do you have planned for Labor Day? Nothing here.

Please Lord, place your healing hand on Bill and take away his pain. We know that healing is in your hands and may it be your will Lord. Please place a hedge of protection and healing around him and Francie. Please give them strength to get through this trying time and take their pain away. We ask this in Jesus Holy name..Amen
