Joy and Rosie it has been a really hard fw weeks. On august 2 hubby decided to go for a walk at 1:40 am, well I told him he could not go. He got really mad and walked out the door, no walker and he actually dressed himself, first time in 3 years. I called the police and told them where I saw him walking and they picked him up, he had fallen. They brought him home and he refused to come into the house, said I was too bossy, lol
Well they then took him to the ER by ambulance and he stayed there until they could get him a room in geriatric physic ward, that happened a week ago last thursday he is still there they are trying to figure out what when wrong. They might never figure that one out!
They think he need short term rehab for starters and are looking into a placement for him. I assume he will stay where he is until they find him a place. Very quiet here and I am loving it. Don't have to get up at 5 am to give him pills, not cleaning up pee and poop.
I am enjoying my little vacation!
Joy, happy to hear things are going good. the DBS surfer he had made it easier for him to live, it was worth it. but now the PD is progressing it won't do much. Things it helped with are constipation and tremors. Few other things too.
Love you both too, good to hear from you.

Hugs
Carol

Good afternoon sisters, Sparkpeople is not telling me when you all post! It is august and I am still exercising, Rosie how is your chiropractor going? Do you notice a difference?
I hope it works for you!
Joy sounds like you are doing ok, I miss you guys!
My hubby is not doing well in the hospital right now, going to a rehab place maybe today, I hope they can help him.
Talk later,
Carol

Haven't been doing much of those, but, doing some others, I just can't seem to keep up.

I worked today, Hope you's are having a nice 4th. Not really doing anything here

I keep saying that I'm going to go to a chiropractor, but, have not got there yet for my knee, I guess it is because I'm not sure if it would make it worse or do some good.

Took my car to garage dealer and they put in a new fuse as the one, that was for the blower had burned out, if it burns out again, then they said it would most likely be the blower, motor

Good Morning Sisters,
Joy I miss you, hope all is ok. Rosie, have you started the exercises yet? I am moving right along with them. Trying to do at least 4 a week and walk my at least 10,000 steps.
My hubby isn't doing all that well, sad to watch.
Hope everyone has a great 4th of July,
Hugs to you both,
Carol

Good Morning Rosie, I shared you a facebook link to Grow Young Fitness, check it out. I think you will be surprised.
Happy you have the weekend off. Going to be nice weather here, rained yesterday.
Daughter Victoria had the week off and went to NYC with her boyfriend, very quiet here this last week.
Hubby is still going to PT but he is failing bad. Everything is hard for him, sad to watch.
Hope everyone has a good day,
Carol

Rosie,
Go to https://members.growyoungfitness.com and set up an account, they will not charge you. The exercises are in order, start with #1 and go from there. There is very little standing, most of them are done in a chair! A lot of streingth and balance and some cardio, YOU should do the streingth and balance. There is also exercises for knees!
I bring a chair into my office and sit in that. Keep the laptop on your table and use a chair!
Good luck, hope it works for you.
If you do not do stuff you lose the ability to do anything. I am going down with a fight!!!
LOL

Carol, I can try, but, I checked it out on youtube, on my laptop, here is more than, one video I'm not sure what one to try?? I walk with a limp, most of the time, and I'm trying to do the knee exercises that I learned/did when going to therapy, suppose to do them 2 times a day, but, when I work it is hard to do those then, do you do those sitting or standing, hard to do with my laptop as I st on the couch, hurts my neck to sit at he table, with this laptop

Rosie, Try the Grow Young Fitness, you might see a difference. You have nothing to lose. Everything to gain.
I love to walk and see what is going on outside, the plants, trees etc. Kind of fun.
Nice weather here the heat wave is over! Nice days.

Have a great day.

Hi Rosie,
I do the Grow Young Fitness and it is good. I am trying to get hubby to do the exercises too but he does not like to do anything, sigh.
It is a good program, the young man that does it was doing pt in nursing homes and started an online program. It is geared to seniors, very good program. You can do a lot and not have to pay for it. They also have the paid version.
He knows his stuff. I also walk try to get 4 to 5 miles a day. I wasl fast because I don't want to spend hours walking, lol
Good luck and a hug,
Carol

I have, Carol, some exercises might work, but, some don't seem to help, I have a small booklet, I picked up from our senior center on doing some exercises, "easy ones", maybe I just expect results sooner than I should. I have and also do go online to youtube, and find some things, but, some seem complicated. So what kind of exercise do you do, just walking. I dislike when I walk so slow, I do have some dvd tapes, last time I tried to do one of them, I nearly ell, so stopped and maybe I need to get back into it. I'll try to check out where you said you do yours,

Today is my last day of 3 days off from work, tomorrow, back on for 2 more.



is the booklet I got www.nia.nih.gov/go4life

Rosie, I have never been to a chiropractor either and I just exercise. That helps my knees and hips. Making your muscles stronger will help knees.
I really hope you feel better, have you tried exercises? I would suggest trying Grow Young Fitness, nothing to lose! See if it helps.
I did the back yard yesterday, the hottest day of the year, looks good but it was HOT, like 95 degrees and humid.
Today is going to be a nice day, should have saved it for today! Hubby goes to PT today and I have to take the dog to the vets for her annual checkup.
Have a great day Rosie,
Hugs,
Carol

That is what I told my NP also, Carol, yes, I will use a cane to walk very far, I'm thinking of going to a Chiropractor, I am not sure if it will do any good, but, my brother thinks I should, might be able to get my leg/knee back in place, we have two in town, I have heard good things about both of them? But, I am up in the air about it, what do you think, I know, like my daughter said, she can't tell me what to do. I know no one can, but, I just need to make a call, I guess, I have never been to one b4

Hi Rosie,
Walking is good, maybe walking on the days you do not work would be good, If you are not steady use a cane. I try to get 10,000 steps in every day. I also do a program online called Grow young fitness, you can do a lot for free and it is for seniors. I have been doing it since Feb and notice a difference with my balance.
I hope the bp goes down, you have had a lot and that will make the bp go up.
Thinking of you,
Hugs,
Carol

Well, it quit raining and turned out nice, and daughter plans on moving to Ohio and I can do the mowing, and is probably what I need, as it is hard sometimes to walk, and my legs get tired real easy any more, I'm not sure if I walk outside sometimes, if that will help or not, but, I'm thinking about that and will use a cane for a while, at least, I do still work at the nursing home, 5 days every two weeks and at times it is hard to walk, :(

Oh yes, I take meds for the BP and she asked if she could up the dose, I said I'd rather she didn't, last Dec it was fine, I think sometimes, it depends on who takes it, I don't think they all read them the same

We had some rain, and thunder this morning, and I had a Dr. appoint. with my NP, all went well, except for my BP was not where she wanted it, me either, but what can you do, I really dislike going to Drs. (period)

My daughter usually mows my lawn for me, but, when she moves like she says she's going to this coming August, then I guess, I'll have to do I myself again. emoticon

That is the most annoying thing! I really like comcast, if it doesn't work right I call them and they fix it. Fast!
I have to mow the back lawn today, it is not a big space but it is going to be HOT, like 95 degrees. sigh
I have someone do the front lawn. I am happy about that.
My daughter Brittany is in FL and it is going to rain everyday, she is going to disney for her vacation, she went with friends. My other daughter is going to NYC with her boyfriend, no rain for her.
Have a good day Rosie, and a big hug,

Rosie, that is interesting, I was born here and lived at the house around the corner. I have a younger sister and brother. I am sure it was not easy to lose your mother at such a young age. My mom lived to be 88 years old. I took care of her for the last five years. She never complained about anything, she was a saint. My dad died in 1999, my mom fell and broke her hip and he died before she came home from the hospital. Guess it was overwheling for him. So I took her home with me but she wanted to live in her own house so I moved in with her.
I can't imagine what it would be like not to have a mother when you are so young.
Big hugs,
Carol

Well, I was born in a hospital, actually in the town, I am living in, as my mom had to have us by cesarean, I'm the oldest out of three, my brother and my baby brother was born in another hospital south of us, and he passed at 2 months, of age, he had a cold and it developed into pneumonia. Lost our mom in 1947, I am not sure of the cause. But, we did have a step mom, more than one, to be exact, but, I actually just claim one and our step sisters and late brothers were her children.

Rosie you are right, you do not belong on a ladder your daughter is young and can do it.
Sounds like you have nice neighbors, we have nice ones too. I have lived in this neighborhood my whole life, once around the corner in the house I was born in and thne when my parents bought this house lived there with my kids. When my dad died I moved in with my mother as she had broken her hip. Took care of her for 5 years and sold the old house and now we are here.
Good to talk to you Rosie! I do wish we all lived closer.
Big hugs,

Nice to see you post here, too, Carol...

I have some fascia coming off my house, and there is a birds nest up in there by my bedroom window told my daughter it needs to come out of there, she said mom, I told you it was there 2 yrs ago, I'm like well, I can't take it out and have no one to do it, she's younger than me, and can get on a ladder I can't. A neighbor had some of the fascia in his hands and said if I wanted he could put it back up for me. I said if u can and would, I'd appreciate, it.

Well Rosie, I have not done much! I have a few flowers in a flowerpot on the front step and that is it. I am not doing window boxes this year, I don't feel like it. lol
Sounds like the Grandkids are doing well. That is a good thing, working part time is good when they are in school.
Good to see you post!
I have someone doing the lawn, front only and I will do the back. I like it that way!
The front has a hill and it is hard. So that is the way it is here.

I haven't been working in my yard, (flower beds) daughter did last year. Doesn't look like she is going to do any of it this year, except, mow the lawn and "maybe" rake. kids don't do anything unless she asks or tells them!! Kids are both working at McDonalds, GS is going to school, is in C.A.P. (civil air patrol and now taking driver training, all GD is doing is working part time, of course as they are still both under age. Oh Well!!!

Good Morning Sisters,
Joy I am happy to hear you are ok. Nice you had a weekend with your sister. Good for your Granddaughter, what is she going to do now, college?
Sometimes it feels good to get out in the yard and work! Nice it is looking good, I am having mine mowed and wish they would come more often. Once a week would work for me, it has been raining and our drought is over.
Hubby is ok, I hate Parkinson's it is awful. He can't get around very well so he sits too much. Doesn't want to do much of anything and that doesn't help. He is going for PT so that is a good thing!
Hope you get your computer fixed!
Big hug,
Carol

I was starting to worry about you JOy! Hope you are starting to feel better. If not see a Er about that cough. That is not good. Sorry about your son, doesn't sound like fun. In a few days he should start to feel better..
Rosies Son had passed away, I didn't think you knew it. I am very sorry she has to go through this, you too with your husband.
I wish we loved closer, it would be nice to be able to help when things are not going too good.
Start to feel better, and I miss you when you are not here.
Happy you are working.

Good to hear from you Joy! Like the help but would like more help. Oh well! Got him to exercise today. He didn't do much but what ever he does is better than nothing.

going to try every day to get him to do something. We went out to eat and I ate too much, didn't even like the food all that much but it didn't stop me, lol
I have been working in the yard, needs grass planted where we lost lots last year, the city asked us not to water so I didn't. Tons of big patches are gone. Got work to do on that.
Rained yesterday not much but some, we need a lot.
Nothing exciting here a good thing I guess, I could use a vacation. Maybe the two weeks hubby was in the hospital was my vacation.

Have a great day and a big hug,
Carol, hope your flooding is a thing of the past~

Joy, so good to hear from you! I was thinking of you and hoping all is well.
Hubby is getting services at home, pt, ot and bathing twice a week, speech too. I hope he can get on his feet so to speak, I know it is downhill but he sees other people.
Happy you have a little job, I want mine back, the grocery store said I can come back anytime. Happy you are going to your sisters for Easter, gosh that is in another week. Where does the time go?
I have been working in the yard today as the weather is beautiful, going to be in the 60's today.
I have been doing the program and it rocks. I feel so much better. Guess winter is over!!!!
Keep in touch!
Big hug,
Carol

Joy good to hear from you. We have snow in the ground. nothing coming up yet, another month or so before that happens.
What have you been doing? Not much going on here. Very quiet! I guess that is a good thing. I have been working out found a good program online called Grow Young Fitness. I have been doing it at least 5 days a week. Trying to get hubby to do it to.
Good to hear from you,
Carol

Good Morning Joy, Good to hear from you and happy you are getting out some.I am sure it is hard to have everything change so much in a short period of time.
Snow, we don't have any right now and did not get much this winter, only had to use the plow guy three times. But we may get a big storm on Tuesday into Weds. sigh so much for not much snow. It is almost over so I can't complain, it will be spring in a few weeks.
Hubby not doing so good. It is sad to watch. His brain is not working all that well and he gets confused, messes up his computer and iphone. We have apple products and there is nothing easier to use. sigh
I found a good program on the internet for working out, it is called Grow Young Fitness, a program for seniors and most of the exercises are done with a chair. I am getting hubby to do it once in a while. Maybe three times a week. He has to move but it is so hard for him. His balance and voice do not work. He can't nag me anymore, lol
Have a great week Rosie and Joy.
Hugs,
Carol

May have a little snow. Haven't hadany in a couple of years. I went to senior center and played bingo and then played cards. Think it was third time. Don't really care about it but I need to do something.
Been working in yard some. Moving some plants and cleaning little.
How ishubby,Carol? Know it probably won't get any better. God bless, Joy

Joy, sounds like you are doing well. I wish we all were closer! I think it is nice we have been friends for years on the list!
I love the thrift stores, hate buying clothes so I get them there. They have so much nice stuff!
Good luck with your job search, hope you find something soon.
I have been cleaning out stuff, we have so much junk! Feels good to get rid of it. So here I go again today, going to do the closet I was going to do last week, got caught up in a room in the basement with a ton of stuff we haven't used in years. I did do hubby's closet.
No yard work here today as it is very cold, 9 degrees and we had snow flurries last nigh and the high today is going to be 19 degrees. We have had very little snow this year and the ground has not been frozen. Very different than the winters we usually have, this is two years in a row. Thinking of you Joy, and a big hug for you and Rosie,
Carol

Carol, I'm taking things toalittle thrift store. I think I'm addicted to that place. I go two or three times a week. I get most of my clothes thhere and if they don't fit or something I give them back. They get in some good things. This week it was two for a quarter. I always give the a little extra.
Rosie, how is work? I want to find a little job. Haven't heard of anything yet.
Carol, I haven't worked in yard much. Meed to. God bless, Joy

Joy, Good that you have a new car! Now you can get around and you did it yourself. Very proud of you!
I am doing cleaning, getting rid of stuff and we have stuff, some things are going to goodwill others to Chewies playland where I take my dogs. I have a ton of quilts that I don't use and they use them for dogs bedding. I am going to tackle the front hall closet next week. Going to take a picture of before and then one when I am done. We have coats we haven't worn in years, why are we keeping them? So if we haven't used it in two years out it goes.
Good luck with hubby's clothes I am sure it is hard to do. Lots of memories. Have you been getting out?
Have a great day and a big hug Joy and you too Rosie,
Carol

Rosie,glad grands are staying busy and making money. Carol, sorry about GD. I have never skied but it looks like fun.
Carol, happy there's something hubby enjoys.
I fond a car. A thirteen Chrysler. ope it is good one. One owner and low mileage. I went car shopping by myself. I decidd I jst wanted a car. The kids never offered to go with me and guess I was too stubborn to ask. They gave me fifty one hundred for my Jeepand I got this for eight thousand. Still has a year's warranty on motor and transmission. Hope it is a good one. Numbers want work on my tablet for some reason and I hate to type on same age. Trying to get hubby's clothes out. God bless, Joy

Rosie, a busy kid is a good kid! Nice that he has so much! My granddaughter age 10 loves to ski and they live near a big ski area, she has been skiing since she was 2. She fell three weeks ago and broke her leg, poor baby but is doing great. She hates not being able to ski but...
NH has a ton of ski areas.
Have a great day,
Carol
