Thanks for sharing the pic Kay. I am managing lymphedema and wondered what an infection might look like. Glad you were able to get this taken care of quickly.

Thanks Julie - you are a quilter? I have done my fair share of quilting. Not some much within the last 2-3 years though.

Thanks Lesley. Stay strong. I've been mostly chair bound for 6 weeks and lots of people brought a lot of pasta based dishes. If people will bring you food for your surgery, be clear about what you need.

We did make it out for groceries yesterday. The worse part was getting to the car in the drive way. It was a sheet of ice. DH just out back in from doing morning chores and says it is worse then yesterday. We are supposed to get up into the 40 the rest of the week so hopefully the ice will melt.

I finished the blocks for my quilt, so I hope to get the top finished today. I am heading to my sewing room after 30 min. on the tread mill.

Have a good day.

Hi everyone! I haven't been feeling well all weekend. Not sick or anything, just don't feel well. Having a hard time breathing.
Hope everyone is well and has a good day!

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

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

To all who are recovering, get well quick.
To those in the bad weather states, keep warm and safe.

My home health care has stopped since I am not homebound anymore. Contacted my urologist since I still have two locations that have statlock devices that have to be changed every 3-4 weeks. I can't reach the one on my back and the catheter is a delicate area.

I have gained 10 lbs since I was released from the hospital. Don't look like a scarecrow anymore.

Since I don't babysit the GK's anymore we don't see as much of them. Started taking them out for lunch one each per month. Have good conversations and learn a little more about what's going on in their lives. Today was DGD's turn. She's had a steady BF since April. They don't go out on dates too often, just hang out with each other's families on Saturday and go to High School youth group church on Wed. He's 17 she's 15. He has some ambitious goals and is actively working on them. Is mature beyond his years.

She said that she prayed for a BF and asked that he be a Godly person. He told her he also prayed for a Godly GF and for her to be loyal, compassionate and if she was good looking that would be okay also. Their prayers were answered a couple of weeks later. They both get along great with the other's parents and siblings. He got hurt during a school sport activity and will be seeing the Dr soon to see if he needs surgery, prayers appreciated. His name is Matthew. My DD had his family over for Christmas Dinner.

Welcome to the team Tammy.

I had a nice evening. The packers pulled it off with a last second field goal to the win the game.

We woke up to freezing rain this morning most of the schools are closed around here. We were planning on grocery shopping but will probably wait until tomorrow.

I am going to get laundry done and sew today. I hope to get the blocks completed for my Whisper Quilt .

Have a good day.

Who are the breast cancer survivors? I'd like to connect. I'm newly diagnosed, stage 1a, double mastectomy, estrogen and progesterone positive, no lymph node involvement, no chemo and no radiation and taking tamoxifen. I am not doing reconstruction and am having some lymphedema symptoms. I also noticed some cording starting under my affected arm. I had 11 nodes removed (6 sentinel and 5 axillary that were in proximity to the sentinel nodes).

I was overweight before cancer and with the tamoxifen and lymphedema, I need to make sure I am healthier. Would love to connect with others.

Julie - Hope you are enjoying your evening.
Kay - Your trip sounds fantastic. You will have to post lots of pictures
when you get back. Sure am glad you were able to see your doctor
quickly and get the cellulitis taken of.

We finally took down the last of our Christmas decorations yesterday. Although
we didn't put up very much it has taken us several weeks to get it down. Hope
everyone has a good day tomorrow.

Kay, I am so glad you caught the cellulitis early. Enjoy you trip.

I have been sewing most of the morning and plan to head back to my sewing room after I eat lunch until 3:00 when the Packers game starts.

Take care everyone.

Hi All,

Welcome Marie and Ellen!

Sorry I've been MIA so much lately. I have no excuse. Everything is basically okay. We are leaving a week from today for a month-long trip to Australia, NZ and Fiji. It's been on my husband's bucket list for a while so we figure we better get over there before we are too old to enjoy it. I'll try to post some while I'm there, but I'm only taking my phone for electronics. I'm looking forward to summer in January and February! It's hard to imagine right now.

I did have a "cancer related event" this past week. I got cellulitis in my arm on my cancer side for the first time ever. I'm at high risk for it since I had all my axillary lymph nodes taken out three years ago. Fortunately, I got into the doctor's office within 8 hours of it starting and got on antibotics immediately. It's cleared up now. That would not have been good to have happened on our trip so I'm hoping it's all over and done now. Here's what cellulitis looks like in the early stage....it looks and feels like a wierd bruise.

I was able to get out and do a bigger grocery shopping than I had planned, but I had a list done, so I saw a sale on meat and picked up more than I was planning on. Wore me out, and my leg ached for the rest of the day, still does ache. I can now walk around for a little while ...limping around before it gets too painful. Driving today was easier, so glad. I finally get to go to the Orthopedic Doc on Tuesday.

I was a nice hot day here in Florida, they say unusually warm for this time of year.

Hope all have a good Saturday.

I had a nice day. I went to my work out at 5 am and was going to go and rest until DH got up but he was up when I got home so I watched some TV and ate my breakfast. I picked up my friend and we went to the quilt shop. My sister wants be to make a quilt based on cardinals, so I was getting the rest of the fabric I needed. I also signed but for a class on making T-shirt quilts. I came home and did some sewing.

Sue, I have no idea how many quilts I have made in the past year but I have around 20 UFO's in my pile.

Have a great evening.

Cello Keep up the good work on your quilts

FLRed glad you got in some exercises and PT is going good

I finally had to switch to heat, so I went to walgreens and got a heating pad, the one I had I gave to my DIL so I was slow to get a new one, but it has done wonders today, and I am able to get around better so a little walking got in and some dishes got done. Ortho doc is on Tuesday. My galfriend down in North Port broke her right ankle, and luckily she has made a good friend with the neighbor to help her out to the Doc. I'll hear tonight or tomorrow what's going on. Everyone I know has problems on their right side, makes driving difficult. I didn't drive very far today Walgreens is only 4 blks away and I went a few miles to get bread and diet soda.

Marie, Welcome to the team.

Just got back from my workout.

After breakfast I am heading to my sewing room. I am still working on cutting out my next quilt project and the sewing blocks for my sampler. I may try to get a quilt on my long arm so it is ready to quilt tomorrow.

The roads this morning were good but we are supposed to be getting rain/ snow this afternoon and into tomorrow. I don't have anywhere I have to be until Friday morning.

Have a good day.

I love the rain, but even I am getting tired of it this year. It's been non stop for days now and isn't going to stop until this weekend. Dee, we haven't had an outages here-yet, hope we don't either, keeping my fingers crossed. lol

Julie, I don't know how you do it in those temperatures! I'm a whiner when it gets below 40 degrees, and it doesn't very often. The weather is about the only thing that is great about living in California:)

We are having a rainy and gloomy day. It 38 out but the rain is supposed to change over to snow tonight. Glad I don't have any where I have to be.

I will be making the quilt from running events my nephew has run in over the past years.

After I finish my lunch I am heading to my sewing room for a few hours.

Have a good afternoon.

Another migraine this afternoon. I am planning to get in some of my exercises this evening. Have a good evening everyone.

I started my day with 30 min on the treadmill.

I think I have had one the battle with my long arm. I took the top plate off and cleaned out the lint that was built up. I have one more set of fleeces to quilt together then I will clean out the lint again.

My nephew has asked me to make him a T-shirt quilt and of course I said I would. I have never made a quilt using T-shirts but I have a friend who has made several and will give me pointers.

I am spending most of today sewing and doing laundry.

Have a good day. everyone.

Julie - Technical problems can be so annoying.
Lesley - I agree with you about the weather.

I stayed inside today, I can't handle chilly weather. I got in an hour of exercise today. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

It is a beautiful clear sunny day here but it is only 13 outside.

I am battling with my long arm my tread keeps breaking. I changed tread and needle but still not working right . It might be t he fabric I am using fleece to make some dog and cat beds. It worked ok for the first part of the blanket. I am going to go clean out and lubricate the machine and see what happens then. If need be I will switch to my regular sewing machine.

Have a good afternoon .

Cello that's cool you can sew so great !! I'm very high beginner on my sewing skills.

Flred This weather we are having is horrid !! my goodness the wind tonight is too much and cold.
we are certainly not used to this !! I hope you found relief for your migraine. I get head every so often but I can take a otc pill and it clears up.

The med my Doc gave me for my leg is only so so it seems to make me sleepy enough forget about the pain. I went to the cardio doc he's going wants a stress test and echo gram just to be on the safe side, doesn't seem to think I have much to worry about...I really liked him he's was new to me at that office, but he's one of the docs that has been there the longest. I slept most of the afternoon clear until 9pm !! I guess its the meds.

I am using 1930 reproduction prints in pastel colors for my sampler blocks. I spent most of today working on my blocks at Lady's Day Away. I also spent a couple hours helping make dolls which will be going to a orphanage in South Africa.

I am going to go knit and watch the football game.

Have a great evening.

Sophie, I try not to get attached to the lambs because I know most of them will be gone. We have 5 of the lambs still, but we are definitely keeping Elly any may be one of the weathers to put in the rams so they are a flock of 3 and hopefully wont fight as much.

Ida, I would send you some warmth to you, but we are only -4 today so far.

I am going to spend some time cutting the rest of my quilt project and sewing a few blocks for my sampler quilt.

Have good day.

GMJean cool on your son going to Grad school.

Cello I'd get too attached to those lambs to send them off .....I guess I get my meat from the Grocery butcher...don't know where it comes from LOL. I have allot respect for ranchers and farmers without them we'd starve !! Some of these young kids I wonder if they even think about where their food comes from, they seem to be preoccupied with allot causes that aren't really for the betterment of society.

Ida stay warm...looks like you got that covered...be safe.

Flred looks like we'll get our cold front on Saturday if I'm not mistaken. We haven't had a freeze in at least 4 years, but I guess we have into March to see if we get one. I hope you get the internet problem worked out..very aggravating when that happens.

Went to the GP looks like my leg is arthritis since the pain started to centralize in my knee. He prescribed an arthritic med for the pain, it has helped allot, I have an Orthopedic appt. on the 23rd. I see the Cardio doc tomorrow, and on the 20th I have a CT scan...Looks like a sickly month for me, doc says I just have allot of irons in the fire right now.

We took 5 lambs to market today so got a some exercise moving fences and panels around after they were loaded in the trailer.

I spent the afternoon sewing and cutting out a new quilt project. I have the strips cut, just need to cut up the strips. I am watching TV and sewing a block by hand for the splendid sampler.

Have a good evening.

Just got home from my workout, not sure if I will get on the treadmill later.

It is cold, only 8 out on ly going to get up to 11 today.

We have to get weights on lambs today so that will be a bit of work, chasing the lambs. They are not exactly small and cute any more, around 100 lbs. each now.

I am going to make my sampler block and start cutting out a new quilt project.

Have a good day.

Dog sitting my son's while he and his little family are in Houston looking for areas to live..They'll be moving within the next month or so...I'm feeling down about that since they lived down the block from me. He's transferring to a much nicer job, and better hours.

I woke up in the middle of the night had to use the little girls room and the doggies got up too, and wanted to go out. Gus who I am watching is doing a little whining now, don't know what is wrong with him.

I'm supposed to call the GP in the morning to see if they can get me in, this leg is still bothering me and it's has since before Christmas I'm sure it's osteoarthiritis, but my GP will want xrays and all....he usually just refers to a specialist....really irritates me he can't seem to do anything anymore.

Hope all well and a good Wednesday.

Welcome to the team Sher.

I have had a some what productive day. I did get on the tread mill for 30 min this morning. We met with our financial planner this morning to transfer our 401K's.

When I fed Timmy this morning I couldn't find the can of dog food my brother sent so we went to Farm and Fleet to buy dog and bird food. We then stopped at Joann's and I got fabric to make some new dog/ cat beds that I will be able wash.

Since I couldn't find the dog food I cleaned out the pantry this afternoon. Threw out some really old food, but didn't find the dog food. Oh well!

Going to go sew for a while. One of my goals is to make at least one quilt block for my sampler I am working on. I am also going to sew the pet blankets together using my long arm and see if I can use up some quilt batting scraps.

Have a good evening.

Julie

Hi veryone. This is my 2nd day on sparkpeople. I am a 2 time Lung Cancer Survivor. 1st Lung cancer was in 2005 and they removed 2/3rds of my right lung. Had chemo and lost all my hair. Then in 2013 I got Lung cancer again in the same lung. They couldn't take out any more of my lung because I wouldn't have any kind of life outside the bed. So they gave me radiation but it was a new radiation, not like the ordinary radiation. It's called: Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) it's only been around about 8 years. I have been bed ridden for almost 2 years because of side effects from steroids because of having radiation pneumonia, this is different from regular pneumonia. anyways, I'm great now, I can walk again and I'm feeling wonderful. I joined the Y today so I can go back swimming, water aerobics. So, I'm glad to be here and I'm on my way to loose this weight.

Heidi, everyone is welcome here. I am a 16 year cancer survivor.

News Year Day was a quiet one for us.

I spent some time working on my sampler quilt and finishing up laundry.

I am starting my 2017 goals today. I started my day with 30 min on the tread mill.

Not sure what we have planned for the day, but hope to watch the Cotton Bowl Game, rooting on Western MI against UW. I also hope to spend s.ome time in my sewing room.

Have a great 2017

Heidi allot of caregivers come her for support and encouragement. I went through 2 chemos and 2 radiation treatments over 5 years and haven't had anything for the last 6 years...so there is allot of hope out there. The only thing I get now is allot of anxiety with each illness I get, I also tend to get sick for weeks from colds that should only last 5 to 10 days I get sick for 6 weeks..this year has been especially bad, and my anxiety over it has been really high. But Praise the Lord nothing detrimental has happened.

New Years was quite for us, as usual we were not feeling well due to a virus that had me down for a while, but I woke this morning feeling much better. A new start to a new year.

First of the year and I'm back. I quit working on healthy eating after my dad's funeral last year in Aug. and I was really bad with my eating over the holidays. More than time to get back to work on healthy eating habits.

Did I post on here that my oncologist moved me to once a year visits? That was a big, good thing that happened during the year.

emoticon Good Morning, Team! I reset my SparkPage today and reset all of my goals. When I was re-doing the goals/interests, etc. it said something about Cancer/Survivors. Not sure if I 'belong' on this team, but - I'm currently helping my Mom through chemo/radiation. We were hoping to be 'done' by the end of 2016, but additional radiation and some missed chemo treatments has brought this into 2017 for our family. Thought I would chat here and just see if this was a place for a caregiver as well.

Three years ago today, I was getting my 14th chemo treatment for breast cancer and I also learned that I was BRCA negative. I didn't get out of the infusion center that night until almost 8pm. The nurses there wanted to get out as badly as I did. It's so nice for that to be a "distant" memory.

We are going to a friend's house tonight to celebrate. I usually try to stay home on New Year's Eve, but this is a special friend and there's no way I would turn her down. She lives 60 miles away and I'm not looking forward to the drive home. It's going to be an early evening (the party starts at 4pm) so maybe the drunks on the road won't be too bad.

Stay safe and warm!

Kay from Tennessee

Have a good afternoon.

We had safe trip to MI and back.

It was nice but emotional trip.

15 of us went out for lunch to celebrate my birthday on Tuesday, 27 Dec.

Then that evening we had a 2 hr our visitation for my mom. I was able to see all my cousins in the Flint area, plus some cousins from Ohio. It seems like it takes a death in the family to bring the whole family together. We had mom's funeral on Wed Dec 28. considering the holidays it was well attended by friends and family.

Last night we had our family Christmas and played cards. There is a card game my family always plays called liverpool. We are now teaching at least the 5th generation to play.

We now have moms dog Timmy. He traveled fine, ate his dinner and seems to be fitting in with our cats. Two of the cats were moms to begin with.

Looking forward for a few relaxing days going into the New Year. Looking forward to 2017.

Julie

Outdoorgirl thank you for prayers. It was a wise choice to stay home with road conditions like you had.

FLRed I ate a few sweets too but didn't gain weight.

CheriAnn get well soon.

Both me and DH are home today nursing a cold. Bought fresh squeezed orange juice so I'm "drinking my calories" today.

Keep well and eat right.

first prayers are there for each and everyone that need them.

We had a quiet Christmas here. We were going to go to a friends home for dinner but the roads were so bad we decided to just stay put in our home. DH had slid off the road the day before due to ice tis is one good reason to stay home. I had some ham in the freezer from Thanksgiving that I thawed out and made a ham, potato and carrots for our Christmas meal. We are still cold and snow is due tonight again. Can not wait for Spring to get here. Just like everyone else.

Have a great day, stay warm everyone and have a great New Year. God Bless you all.

I am so sorry for being gone so long............I was busily making teddy bears (three out of my deceased nephews work jeans- and two for other Christmas presents). It was so hard emotionally.............then the holidays and all of the planning and parties, all of which were early this year. Good thing, because I developed a cold!! I had more floaters last week and had to fit in that Dr. visit, as well as testing and Dr, visits for a hernia that has developed (on the site of the vertical incision they used for exploratory surgery for the cancer diagnosis). I have surgery on the 19th. They will try and repair the muscles, but he is not sure that will be possible. they might have to just put in mesh and be done with it. Pray for wisdom and discernment for my medical team, and skill for my surgeon. Pray it all goes well, and that referrals, etc all come in time. I have to call and rearrange my checkup with my Oncologist as well. I will call Tues, good thing I am off this week! I am going with DH as he puts in a water heater for our friends tomorrow.

Keeping you all in my prayers....

Deanna such a Blessing for you this Christmas and a beautiful way to begin 2017 !!

I'm down with a cold I hope I get over this one sooner than the last one. Usually I haven't been getting viruses until this year ugh !

Christmas dinner went fine and directly afterwards I got into my PJ's.

My doggy got her peanut butter doggy cookies. Grandkids are 6 months and 8 months so a little too young this year.

Have a wonderful Christmas night. emoticon

I spent a couple hours in the ER today due to Docs recommendations I don't have a blood clot in my right leg they don't know what is wrong with it, just need rest and elevation. I have a cardio appt Jan 4th, and I should schedule a pulmonary appt after that, and get straightened out.

My 70th Birthday was yesterday, DD and family took us out to Dinner. She gave me a velour robe and sleep shirt. Went to Longhorn's Steak place, good food.

Then today, DH and I went to an upscale restaurant nearby and had Scallops with Orchetta Pasta and Truffle cream sauce. Only ate about 1/3 of it, very filling.

Then we went to the jewelers. DD and I went on Black Friday and she picked out a necklace. I had my Mother's 1/2 carat Marquis diamond wedding ring. It was reset into a halo setting surrounded by diamonds. Looks absolutely gorgeous! This was a gift for all that she has done for me this year. Without her help in getting me to the hospital and her GYN Dr I surely would have died. My Oncologist gave up on me. Gave me a list of Hospices to check out.

I now have a new lease on life. PET Scan is tommorow.

Stay warm, drive safe and have a Merry Christmas.

Deanna

Hi All,

Things are good here. We went to the Chicagoland area for a week right in the midst of their deep freeze. It was -9F the morning we left to come back to Tennessee. I really enjoyed seeing my youngest son and helping him with a few things, but it felt great to get back to my own home afterward.

Wishing everyone happy holidays.

Hi everyone!
Dee, I love my apartment! I get my new furniture today. I lived in a studio before so I only have bedroom furniture but I bought a couch, recliner, and dining set over the weekend. My granddaughter came by to visit last night. She lives in AZ and is here for Christmas. I haven't seen her for a year and it was so good to see her again!
Dee, I hope your migraine is better!

Have been having a busier day than anticipated.

Went to my work, went grocery shopping. Then when mail came we got bill for health insurance in one letter and our new insurance cards in another. So I called the insurance and everything is OK

I took a few pictures of the sheep last weekend.

This is our ram Ace. He likes to go out in the snow and his back had about an inch of snow on it. He is so well insulted that the snow doesn't melt.


This is Chet and few of the girls, pigging out on hay.


Take care everyone.

Julie - Sounds like you are getting the extra cold the weather man
was talking about.
Ida - Dealing with bids and counter bids were always a headache when we were selling.
You are smart to wait until things are settled.

Busy day today. Will be doing my workout shortly. Have a good evening
