Julie glad your eye is doing good all that time ... Great !!

I had a good morning I got DH off to work, and I went back to bed. I got into my swimming pool for the first time this year by the insistence of my dear friend who also lives in Florida, but SW of me. She is my coach. One thing is for sure I do lack motivation when it comes to exercise. I'll do housework, grocery shopping, and mall walking first.

Monday is my Vacuuming, and Laundry Day and that is my DH Friday. Planning on going to my sons home on Wednesday I'm making lasagna, and will cook in their home, they live an hour away so I'll make it the day before then refrigerate.

Well Have a great Monday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nana, I hope as you regain your strength getting around will become easier.
Dee, I hope your anemia improves.

My eye is doing fine. The lesion on my retina hasn't changed in 9 years but they are monitoring on a routine bases.

I had an enjoyable day. I spent it sewing with my friends at Lady's Day Away.

Take care everyone.

Went outside with my PT today. Walked down the ramp my DSIL and GS built for me. Going down was great, but back up was a killer. My calf's have gotten tight. Had to side step it. Will work on stretching exercises.

Have been reluctant to get out of bed on my own, don't want to fall, want to have someone bedside in case I have trouble. When I feel comfortable doing that, I can get into the wheelchair and roll myself around. Will use the walker when someone is there to spot me.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Kay, I hope you are starting to feel better.

I had a follow up DR visit for the laser surgery on my eye and everything is healing well. I go back in 6 months and see my normal retina DR.

We went out for dinner to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary, which is Sunday (28 Aug).

Have a great weekend!

Today I may have lost my pumpkins, watermelon and corn that I had outside my green house due to the temp dropped to 22 degrees. I have lost my sister last week lost my adopted mother on Sat. But I have not lost my faith in God. It has been a very hard couple of week and Satan will not destroy my Faith in God or me

Nana2 Wishing you the best at the radiologist, and pray you get good results.

i did better on sleeping last night got a full 5 hours !! DH and me will be visiting with son, dil and baby granddaughter, I'll be bringing 3 little outfits with me. I never had any girls and my sisters children where states away, and of course you have to buy for your own children first, and I had only 2 boys....but I did dressed them very nicely...to this day they are very good dressers, and keep well kept.

My next oncologist appt is Sept. 8th not looking forward to the co/pay it gets higher every year. But well discuss my next chest CT scan, probably will be schedule for this Fall.

Went to my Dr today to discuss what my next step could be to eliminate to constant leakage of urine I have. Even though I have a Supra Pubic Catheter, not all the urine goes into the bladder. It passes thru what is left of the Vagina. This surgery would eliminate the bladder and collect the urine into a drainage bag thru a drain the abdomen.

This is something I would wait until next year to have done.

Dr wants me to consult with a radiologist regarding the 2 lymph nodes that lit up on last years PET scan. Even though I'm NED, he wants to make sure the cancer is killed

Still working on getting my strength back.

Hope everyone is doing OK.

We had a nice day to was actually cool this am. We didn't do a lot. DH took a book self we bought yesterday we only had 4 of 8 legs, I went with my friend Nancy to deliver the two quilts I made but Wendy and Gina were not home when we got there,

Well it is back to work tomorrow after a long weekend. Only two weeks until we have a whole week off again, ending with the Sheep and Wool Festival.

I am a little tired tonight so may head to bed early.

Take care everyone.

Simpleforreal I hope you get better with each day. I attribute my microscopic colitis to my Chemo. As for me I went thru 2 chemo's and 2 radiations...and am due for a CT Scan around Oct. or Nov. for my right lung.

FLRED I'm glad you got your scan approved.

I'm finally feeling better this afternoon morning was a hard time waking up, and getting going, but I did get some things done and Dinner will be served LOL !!

P.S. I had to edit post because I thought Simple for real was going thru chemo again. Sorry if you already read my first version.

Happy Sunday everyone!

This weekend has been sort of a bust for me....this darn Crohn's disease is slowing ruining a huge chunk of my summer. It's like being back on chemo and dragging along. I have 23 more days to go before I get in to see my new GI doc.

Leslie, Happy anniversary!

Dee, I hope you get good results from your scans.

I had a fairly nice day. My 5 am training session got canceled which was kind of nice since I had the day off. We had an appointment with a person for health insurance. We are retiring in Dec and will need to purchase our own health insurance for 2017. It was mainly an information session since rates for 2017 will not be out until Nov.

We were going to do some earns and go out to lunch but DH has not been feeling well. He stung by a wasp last night on his neck. Instead of running around I spent my afternoon quilting. I have finished my first bed size quilt on my long-arm. I will post a picture once I get the bind on.

Have a great week end.

enough rain for our plants. Unfortunately it doesn't make it cooler here, just steamier.

Scan has been approved, but it will be a couple of weeks before I can be worked in
the schedule. Have a good weekend everyone!

FLRED, are you having symptoms that are causing your doc to want to do a scan or is this more of a follow-up scan. In either case, I hope you get good results.

Leslie, happy anniversary. I'm glad you were able to get some celebration in.

We have been getting rain here almost daily for the past week and rain is forecast for the weekend. I really don't mind. I love summer showers. It keeps things cooler, I don't have to water the plants and it makes for great napping weather!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

The day was good ...DH and me celebrated getting married for the 2nd time on our 30th wedding anniversary in the Catholic Church 4 years ago. We wanted to make it to Church but he was very tired this morning, we did end up out to Dinner. I've been getting out of cooking the last few mornings. DH wants fruit for breakfast so I need to go the grocery store around 7am to pick up prepared fruit.

My next Oncologist appt is Sept 8th, I'm sure at that time he'll schedule a follow up CT Scan of my chest, we are monitoring a growth in my lower right lobe so far it has remained the same size for the last couple years, so I'm hoping it's just a harmless nodule in the Lung. I've had my share of Health problems over the last 10 years, but I endeavor to persevere.

Ida, I will keep you in my prayers.

Lesley, I hope you enjoyed yourself.

I had the day off today. I had my year check up with GP today. Everything is OK but my blood sugars were up, so she adjusted my meds and I am going to be more mind full of what I am eating.

I had a nice day. I cleaned a little, cut thread ends off my quilts and spun all while I watched the Olympics.

Take care everyone.

Thank you. I do keep up with the visits. Next week I have to travel to Boise for another nuke stress test. This will be my 5th one in 3 years. I have been having trouble with shortness of breath. I have heart trouble any way, but my doctor up here is kind of worried.

On my ultrasound, the decision is they will not do a biopsy right now. They want to recheck it again and watch it for a while.

Lesley, I had ucerative colitis 33 years ago and had my colon removed. I wasn't diagnosed with Crohn's until after I had my cancer treatments 3 years ago, but I may have had it for much longer. It's hard to tell. It's also possible that the chemo irritated my intestines enough to get the Crohn's started. I'll never know. Honestly, I hadn't really tied the chemo and the Crohn's together, but it's possible.

I'm sure the voice doctor is going to recommend a spacer for my asthma meds. I tried just holding the inhaler two finger widths away from my mouth this morning and felt like I got most of the medicine on my upper lip! A spacer will be useful. I'm just amazed that none of the PCP's I've complained to over the years about the hoarseness side effect of inhaled corticosteroids didn't recommend a spacer. Instead, they just kept changing the medications. I'm really looking forward to hearing what the voice doc has to say on Monday. I sound like I'm 103.....and I'm not!!!

Simpleforreal real I started using a spacer with my inhaler too, make sure you get a script for it to get one you have to have a script !?!? it solved my problems of a sore throat from not using one, much much better. Sorry to hear you have Chrons is that something that happened after Cancer treatment? I ended up with microscopic colitis after my treatments, and happy to say i've only had mild case the last 2 months, but I don't hold my breath i've been dealing with it for over 5 years.

I met this woman while I got a pedi/mani today my husband treated me, i guess God directed me not only for her for her but for me too. She had tongue Cancer and was going thru treatments, I assurred her that she will make it...theyve come such a long way on treating Cancer since my first bought with it 10 years ago. But I feel she also was there for me too, she said she saw a red patch on her tongue that wouldn't go away, then she noticed a small hole in the side of her tongue. The strangest thing about this is I've had red patches come and go on my tongue, and the last time I talked to my dentist he said if I get another one to call and come in that day. If it ever happens again I'm not going to play the wait and see if it disappears....I'm heading into my dentist for him to take a look see. Just another thing to worry about, but I've had strange things happen ever since my first diagnosis with Cancer, and I should be concerned with things...that's what doctors are there for !!

i don't think quite as clearly as I used to, and I picked the $35 pedicure, thinking that would be the total cost for both mani/pedi...and the gal was doing all these fancy things to my feet and legs and all the nice creams and so for...she didn't speak very much english, and I said I guess it's been such a while since I've been in that you do things differently... LOL well gave her my card before my manicure I told her to add $5 for her then I got the final bill to sign it was $50, $10 more than what I usually spend...well she pointed out to me on their "menu" that I picked the $35 pedi, with the $10 mani and gave her $5 tip...boy did I appologise for being so dumb and not getting the $25 mani... I had added in my head BEFORE the tip it would be $35 for both and just wasn't thinking and picked the $35 pedi.. LOL I told her I was so sorry for the confusion....my fault...but it sure felt nice to get the "deluxe" pedi...I think I might be spoiled....but next time I'll remember to get it right. My excitement for the day. Oh and I woke up on the wrong side of the bed...dear husband treated me to breakfast...that helped with the headache, and for dinner they had a deal at the deli $4.99 for 3 piece chicken tender deal...so I got one each for DH and me ...by the time I buy chicken breasts and the fixings to go with it...can't pass that up...it was on sale $2 off each meal...so no cooking today.... I'll have to figure out what tomorrow meals will be.
Blessings to you all and I wish the best for everyone...Hugs Lesley emoticon

Last night coming home from quartet in one direction you could see a beautiful full moon and looking just a little bit north there was lightening in the clouds.

I have had a pretty good day. After my workout I was heading to work and as I pulled on to the hwy there was a beautiful double rainbow going across the sky. I am off for the rest of the week. I hope to spend a good part of tomorrow sewing.

Take care everyone.

Sophie, great news on your biopsy. I'm happy for you.

Ida, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister and all the other things that happened on the 13th. I hope the biopsy on your node turns out okay. Do you have it scheduled yet?

I feel like I've been limping along for the past month or so....mostly due to issues with Crohn's, but I've almost completely lost my voice due to a side effect of an asthma medication I take. I have an appointment on Monday with the "voice clinic" at Vanderbilt. After looking at my medication on-line and it's side effects, I'm thinking they will want me to start using a spacer with the inhaler. I'm sure they have seen this problem a lot.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Ida, It sure sounds like you had a bad day, I will say a prayer for you.

We had a nice day. We got up when we woke up, went out for breakfast and got groceries.

Later this afternoon we went out to Susan's Fibers. It is a local fiber store, she sells just about anything you need for spinning and more. I took my first spinning lessons from her several years ago. We found wool from a few different breeds, Cheviot, Teeswater and Finn. I am looking forward to spinning them DH and I are going to share.

Have a good evening.

Yesterday was not a good day.

First found out the cost for repair on the car $400. This is due to a rock coming through the sunroof as we were driving.

Second my front tire went flat after I got home and

Third my brother just called to let me know that my older sister passed away last night.She is from Connecticut

Forth my DR is having tests done on my lymph node to check to see if I have cancer again. He also wants my heart DR to do a Nuke stress test as I have been having a lot of shortness of breath.Not much else can happen and I know God will put a hedge around me the rest of the day

Sophie and Sue, I hope your test results come back okay.

Sue, when you talk to your DD abou the app, let her know I've had a j-pouch for over 30 years now. I had it for UC when I was 29. If she is not doing well on the UC meds, she may be considering that surgery. If she wants to talk to someone that has had it, I'd be happy to talk to her.

I am doing so much better this week with my Crohn's. I'm almost back to my normal foods and energy levels. What a relief!

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

SnuzSuz I hope your scan comes back good....Prayers are with you.

I get my breast biopsy results back today....I'm up early and I think it's going to be a looong day waiting. I'm hoping for the best but I've had other cancers and I am worried. It's been 5 years since I've gone thru any treatment. So I'm hoping I don't have to but If I do I'm hoping of course for a good outcome. Since my last treatment, they've come a long way in treating cancer, so i hope I will be able to get the new way of doing things.....but I'm hoping for a benign result. Just very impatient today. sorry for my babbling.

It's Saturday ... I didn't get the results yesterday I have to wait until Monday August 15th

it has to be done. You must be so pleased to have your long-arm machine set up.
Sue - Thank you. Hope your scan comes back fine.

We are back to normal summer weather, thunderstorms every afternoon. Right now I am watching Martha Bakes, a mild form of torture since there is no way I can justify from a health perspective actually making any of the stuff she is baking. Have a good day tomorrow everyone.

Well my friend Donna is still hanging in there, she has episodes of not being able to breathe every morning though do her time is short. A couple of days ago the harpist from the trio she played with played for a while for her to practice for the funeral. It was beautiful. She is having the harp and bagpipes! I am also trying to plan a retreat. I am getting worn out trying to do all this. I am still doing physical therapy as well. I am going early tomorrow to see her before she gets tired out...it doesn't take much.

Thanks for the comments on my quilt. I have 16 more tops to quilt. I hope to spend this coming weekend quilting. I was a little hesitant to use it because of my eye I was worried that the vibration and the leaning over to put a quilt on might affect my eye. I had a follow up visit today and I am off all my restrictions. I go back in about 3 weeks.

I am going to watch the Olympics and spin for a while tonight.

Take care everyone.

Kay - My tracking is fairly low tech, I use a spreadsheet that I started years ago. If I
was just starting out I would be interested in a phone app like you are using. Glad
you are feeling better. Do be careful, having a relapse is not fun.

We are having storms today with high humidity. Have a good evening everyone!

FLRED, I was thinking that the app that I use to track things would be good for migrane sufferers too. I have a niece that has really been through the ringer with migranes. Is there a good app for migrane sufferers to track symptoms? If not I might mention the app I found to her. It's called mySymptoms and their website is mySymptoms.net.

Julie, your quilt is wonderful!! Thanks for posting a picture of it so we could enjoy seeing your artistic ability.

I'm slowly feeling better each day after the latest Crohn's flair. Right now, I feel like I'm operating at about 60% of my normal capacity, but part of it is that I don't want to overdo it and go backwards.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Julie - I saw them and they are fabulous! I loved them! Well done!
Kay - Glad you are feeling better You are smart to do the tracking prior to seeing
your doctor. I do a version of that with my migraines.


My DH install some more grab bars for me this weekend. Heavy rain today. Have a good
day tomorrow everybody!

This is my sheep quilt that I designed and made.



If anyone is interested in seeing my recent quilts, I did a blog with pictures of them all.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.

It's about learning to dance in the rain.
