So sorry i have been Mia, a lot going on. I decided i needed to keep busy, and do things for my self. I just did not feel like getting on computer for even 5-10 minutes. I have been so weak, i know i am anemic. i do go the 1st of July for Blood work and then to the Neph. on the 10th so i will find out what is going on with CKD.
We have had a lot going on here. After my children left i was down for a couple days, i knew this would happen but the visit was a great one.
I am wishing blessings for every one. Jen i hope you get every thing for the wedding.

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

Thankful you got a dress you like and Nordstroms is out for a refund.....lol

I quit shopping at JCP for a personal reason.

I have been asking questions of David about some of the tests he has had done,
since I have had the two episodes, months apart with the rapid pulse and upper BP
# being high and not wanting to come down and the lower one was up somewhat also.

Don't know if my BP meds need changed or what....but I guess I will call the Cardiologists'
nurse and quiz her first, then make a decision as to what needs to be done.

Oh My goodness!~ I so understand - I hope the situation gets better for you!

Brother is doing well and can move around a bit more - I still have to do a lot for him, as he cannot lift much weight.

Sooo I get my dress for the wedding on Monday - I have been TOO busy to try it on and such - I take it out last night and there is a thread coming out and the beads are missing right in the front of the dress! I have three weeks to replace this dress - Nordstrom DOES NOT carry this dress in their stores! I am beyond myself - I have to try to re-order it Monday when I return the dress to the store! I am taking it to the store - due to the damage - I did not remove it from the plastic.

Dress shopping on Monday! I spent most of yesterday shopping with NO luck!

Don is working every weekend until we leave for California.. no holiday for the 4th this year - except Wednesday. He typically gets a holiday weekend - ugh!

I hope ya all are loving your kidneys.

HEY JEAN,

Glad to help support the Chief in her time of busy-ness.......

I had a go-round with my BP over the weekend, so did not get as much done as I had hoped.
Would you believe...........I was doing good and then his sister had their mother to call and
ask David to carry her to her dentist today??? Neither of us mind doing for his mother, but
his sister is jealous, if you can believe that......and has been trying for the last 2 or 3 weeks
to figure a way to make us go wait on her..........NOT going to happen.................

Hope things are getting better for you,
Darlene

Hi every one, i have been MIA for a few days. My son Steve and grandson Josh were here from Florida, to cheer me up ( as they said) and they sure did. I had a great time with them. We fished, walked ate, talked, did Bible Study, Josh is our musical minister for the youth and does mission work so we played and sang. They would not let me cook, although they said i love your Roast Beef and Chicken Noodle soup etc. It was a nice relaxing time and i worried about nothing except having a good time. Scott had to work but he and his brother Steve did have a long breakfast together. I am sure i was part of the conversation. I love my boys (men).
Have a nice Sunday every one.
C

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

Thank you!

I am taking the day today - I am trying to catch up a bit on spark - and doing laundry.

On top of taking care of my bro - I have been cleaning out the upstairs - everything came out of the five foot deep (opening at one end) closet and room. We put up bunkbeds for grandkids, and now I feel the room is just too crowded. It has a twin bed, dresser and a clothes rack in there with the bunkbeds. Much to crowded and I am too darn tired to move anything else right now.

My body is saying NO NO NO rest rest rest and my mind is saying do not sit around - CKD is kicking my butt right now - so I am off to do some more spark and I am going to say NO - and rest today.

Love your kidneys.

Ok Ladies take it easy, rest your body, think of your self. I know sometimes easier said than done.
Jen i hate to say this but sometimes men dont want to listen when it comes to ther health. My husband was to go on fish oil with the omega's and i was already useing this and i got the organic with the lemon, no fishie taste, no burps. He is supossed to take 1000mg 5 to 6 times a day. And you gussed it, it makes him burp, hurts his stomach, taste funny.I said fine im not your Dr. but right here it is in black and white in a letter from him. So he doesnt take it.

Yesterday, was my oldest grandson's birthday Scooter, the one who is dancing with Jesus. Today is his Dad's BD my youngest son Steve, 51, and Friday is my oldest son's BD Scott the one who is living with me, 53, i dont know how they got older and i didnt. emoticon Steve will be coming to visiy us next week so i will make him a cake then ,and Friday i will make one for Scott.
Every one please take care.

hI EVERYONE.

How is everyone doing? I see Jean is having a rough day, hope it has improved by
now........

I guess I overdid it on the Elliptical as my left knee was sore and swollen....but then it
could be lifting his mother around too...

We have her for 4 more weeks...they put her in a walking boot and then we will go back
in 4 weeks and get new xrays.

I am taking a day today - too much stress!
My bro is not doing good - even though I have had nine surgeries he would NOT listen to me when I told him he is overdoing it! He is now in bed for the next 24 hours - too much swelling and pain and other issues. I tried to tell him.

Other things going on too - too much stress - today I am taking an hour for me to spark and then OFF to exercise... although I think I should have done exercise first! But had to stop off in the team and say HI to ya all!

I want to thank D_ann for offering to help with the team while I am out. Caroline thank you for all that you do for the team. I appreciate you too!

Happy June team - Keep LOVING your kidneys!

Hello every one, i hope your Sunday has been a nice one.
Please welcome our newest members.
It is hot here today, my son is mowing the lawn, he didn't get to it yesterday, and since he works nights and sleeps days, he thought he better get it done today.
We took Lexy out to Norris Dam State Park this early afternoon, she loves it, and is now going into the water, some one must have scared her with water before we rescued her, for she never got in the water above her ankles, its taken her a year to do this. She loves to go in the car. We went to Steak and Shake and got her a hamburger. I think we have spoiled her.
Service at church was on Andrew today.
Feed your Kidneys good today, blessings to all of you. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Darlene
Jen, i am glad every thing went ok, try not to get to tired.
Me i am still fighting this Bronchitis, i was feeling better this morning and then i over did it, did laundry, cooked, other things around the house and then my chest started hurting again, then i tripped and twisted my knee , its a good thing i had the brace on, it still hurts some. Well it could be worse, i am thankful i am still able to walk or do a half hobble walk.
It was cool here today and still a little damp. Every one have a good Sunday and enjoy your self.

I am so graceful, this is why my children use to call me Grace-----always tripping or doing some thing silly. emoticon emoticon

Heading into summer... where does the time go?

I know we all are busy in the warmer months and who wants to sit in the house on the computer?

I know sparking goes down in the summer - but let's try to keep in touch once a week team. I will be sending out an email today to communicate what is on my plate this summer and asking if anyone would like to help out in a leadership capacity with welcoming new members, huddles and posting.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and that you are LOVING your kidneys.
