Needing more prayers for Charles! He fell at 3:00 am Thursday but refused to go to ER. Fell again at about 11:00 am Thursday in church parking lot after we went for confession. This time he went to ER. They admitted him at least overnight. I hope they can get things balanced out for him. It is hard to keep from being discouraged.

The paramedics from both fire departments were wonderful, and so were the ER folks.

Charles is doing better. He sees a pharmacist later this week. His medicines may be interacting or out of balance.

So glad it was localized! Bad enough where it was.

Please pray for my Hubby, Charles. Maybe he just overdid today. Vitals checked out okay, but he does not seem quite right to me.

Thanks, Kathleen

I was well enough to go to Liturgy this morning! Yay!

Still no diagnosis. I have a neurology appointment in November. My older daughter is helping me keep track of my fevers and accompanying symptoms. She will work up some statistical reports that will help the doc see what I have been facing. I hope it will help with a diagnosis, or at least with a next step toward a diagnosis.

Oh, I did get a diagnosis on the gut pain. It is irritable bowel syndrome. It is improving as I learn what I need to cut out of my diet. It will just take time, but the pain is already less.

Praying for everyone.

emoticon Just helped John shower and am in the process of cleaning Brandy"s crate. It is funny to see her go to where it usually is and no rug or blanket (which is my old fuzzy robe she adopted) but she can still go to her bed in the bedroom.
Dee, I am sorry radiation wasn't an option for your sister. . It is not easy to adjust to medical changed in out lives. emoticon to both of you.
I need to go to the grocery store but wanted to listen to the viking game but we are losing. I think I will take my shower and hope it all is better when I get out.
Kathleen i hope you feel better soon. Have you ever heard a diagnosis?
I hope that those dogs fill your life with love and keep you busy. Once again, we "older" ladies seem to have to adjust our lives a lot.
More later, shower no, score 24 to 7, can't listen anymore. Georgine

Morning all!! Looks like we are going to get rain today. So did the outside chores already! Let it rain!!!! ;-) Love having my family home together and we will be this weekend!!

Kathleen so glad you are feeling pretty good! Sorry you are tired though. Did I ask if you had been tested for Lyme's Disease? Stress doesn't help for sure. I gained back all I lost too. Scales are slowing working down again but it is so slow. Glad Autumn is coming so it will be enjoyable to walk again. Just miss DH so when I walk as we used to walk together. ;-(

Dee I am so sorry for your sister. So thankful you can talk of the phone so often together!!

Hugs to all!!

I've had a couple pretty good days. Just tired. Georgine, I am having a horrible time staying "on track," too. And I have gained back all the weight I lost! The stress sure doesn't help.

Georgine so glad you made the trip and are home safely. I know how tiring those long trips are especially when there are disappointments from the visits.
Smart idea to keep the crab apples ahead of you.
If you are having hot flashes I hope you can find something that can help tone them down and make them disappear!

Even in late afternoon I am feeling well and full of energy! I am so glad to be done with that cold!!

Hope Everyone has a great evening!

so many posts, hope I can remember some of it anyway??
We got back from our out of town clinic visit-2 hours one way- but the doctor said John's eye isn't clear enuff for them to get a scan for him nor can he see to the back to the macula. If he were to inject the eye shot he would be guessing and there is danger of infection and that the drug could aggravate the shingles virus and we don' need that. So he is putting us off for another 2 months until we See the cornea surgeon after the cortisone treatment is done. John did see the assts.'s fingers better and farther away so he has a little improvement. So, it is a wait to see if the cortisone treatment works. we see the cornea surgeon at the end of Oct. I doubt he will try a transpalnt as we were told today that John's cornea is a mess.
Daddys girl, glad you are better and enjoying the dogs. they are such a comfort.
Kathleen, I sure have been hoping to see that a diagnosis for you.
Dee, my sweating at nite can't be flashes??!! yet Never had any bother with menopause.
I met a lady at the eye clinic who had melanoma in her eye and she chose radiation and it has been many years-15- since but now there is some bleeding from the radiation so they are giving her the shots to dry that up.Otherwise this doctor wants to remove the eye and after 15 years she isn't happy with that. I hope your sister is having more better days than bad. Thinking o you too.
i am still struggling to get back on track. I was so close to my goal and then get stressed and eat the pastry and candy, then get angry with myself. I am careful with the apples, I push them ahead of me then throw them into the compost. We had 2 wonderful warm and sunny days and today is very cold, windy and rainy and they are talking frost. Not sure i can cover everything! Georgine emoticon to all

Morning All!
I am better! Slept until 10:30 this morning! Can't tell you how long it has been since I slept that late! I feel so much better!

Kathleen wish your DD was close to you too. That is tough.

Dee praying for your DSis and you. Yes I am sure she has many adjustments to come.

Hugs to all!

Glad you're feeling better, Daddys_Girl!

I wish my daughter lived close enough to go to my appointment with me, but that would be an awful commute from Minneapolis to central Kentucky. I'm just glad she can help me with the documentation!

Praying for everyone.

Morning Everyone! Think I am well enough to run some errands today. I have to get my life back. Almost a whole week of being shut up in the house leaves much undone! ;-) But surely didn't want to pass this around.
I wrote a post yesterday but some how it didn't post so I am behind here too.

Georgine glad you got some extra sleep. Sometimes our pups will let us and other times not. Today was a *not* day. Now they are sleeping. LOL
Glad DH can see the dark spots on the white spread!! Praying it gets much better and that you will have wisdom about your surgery. Friend waited so long she now has to have hip replacement too.
Hope you can get the crab apples up with out slipping on any! Not a good thing. Do you make anything with the good ones?
We are still having 90 degree days and I am sure there are some 100 degree ones left too! You are welcome to come for a visit!! Especially in January!! ;-)

Kathleen what a great idea and so thankful DD can help you with this. She has some great ideas!! You are so right about getting Drs to pay attention to you.
Praying you will get some answers soon!!

Dee never thought of that either but it is so true!

Hugs to you all and hoping you all have pleasant and happy days!

I asked my doctor about that. He said it was probably not what was going on. I used to have a lot of problems with hot flashes some years ago, but they were not accompanied by vertigo, headaches, light sensitivity, nausea, etc. Also, the fevers persist for hours or days. When I was having hot flashes, they usually only lasted a few minutes. They didn't make me feel sick, just really uncomfortable. It would be nice if that were the answer, though!

Dee, I'm still praying for you and your sister. I hope she is doing okay.

Organizing is hard, hard, hard! You have a lot on your plate, Georgine, so be gentle with yourself!

Sorry I've been out. Just before my sister came, I found out that the last round of medical tests did not shed any more light on my fevers and other symptoms. While she was here, it did not bother me much because I was so happy just to have her here. As soon as she left, my depression kicked in worse than usual. It is so frustrating to have all these tests show nothing, nothing, nothing!

Saturday I had a long conversation with my older daughter. She is a really smart scientist and is very good at sorting out data and seeing how things fit together, even if they seem like they don't make sense. I have been keeping track of symptoms and temperatures for a long time, but she is helping me set up a more systematic way of doing it. Then I will send the data to her, and she will do some graphs and such for me to take to my neurology appointment in November. I have already figured out that if you can bring carefully arranged data with you to a doctor appointment, they take you more seriously!

I started checking my temperature both orally and at my temple. I had been checking only my temple temperature for years. Then I would go to the doctor, and they would check it orally, and I would never have a fever by that method. The oral thermometer I got is also showing no fevers. It stays between about 97.2 and 98.2. My temple temperatures used to be the same way, but then the temple thermometer started showing fevers that go up as my symptoms worsen. I have replaced the thermometer several times to make sure it wasn't just that the thermometer was worn out. My daughter thinks this may indicate that I am having inflammation localized inside my skull. That could account for the temperatures being different in the two locations. Sort of like when you get a sprained ankle, and your ankle feels hot to the touch.

Anyway, I am feeling more hopeful about figuring out what is going on. The stuff that might be wrong is pretty scary, but I would rather find out, and maybe be able to treat it.

I continue to pray for everyone as I can. Sometimes I forget when I am really depressed. I just don't function well then. Trying to get back on track!

emoticon took B. out at 6:30 , made coffee and went back to bed tp read and fell asleep. 56 degrees this morning and the high of 77!! Yesterday also was actually hot but starting Wed. the highs are on the 50s. I feel better in cool weather but am not ready for those highs!! I still have tomatoes to pick and see what ever else. With this back muscle bothering me I am afraid to do too much plus we have a strong wind today and the crab apples are all over the patio. I can't leave them as they are slippery to walk on. after this i will start stretches. I helped John with his shower and gave meds. He could see the dark colors on the white on the new bed spread- emoticon
There were only 4 of us on my mom's side of the family and one has passed away, she was such a close friend, so there are just the 3 of us now
I am trying to track everything but made a BIG mistake this morning and had Eggo blueberry pancakes my daughter bought by mistake as the waffles are better and not so bad. after i added everything into the tracker it is over 500 and carbs off the wall. I just wanted to get rid of them and should have had my yogurt. emoticon
I am trying to decide of I can live with this knee and the pain meds til the end of April and have the knee done. .
Here I am blabbing again so will get going on stretches. I know I spend too much time on the computer, still need to organize better than this. take care everyone!!

Happy Lord's Day to Everyone!! Hope you all have a good Sunday!

Hugs Barbara! It is probably getting pretty hard about now.

Georgine great post! Thanks for sharing so much. I know what you mean. DH was an only child so I don't have his siblings to remember him with. My parents are both gone but thankfully I have my Bro and Sis and cousins. I am the oldest living member of my immediate family and that is a bit hard. I remember my parents saying that but didn't think it would bother me too. LOL One more time Dad and Mom were right! ;-)
Hope you can get your knee done with DH is doing well. That will make it easier on everyone. Does DH's friend still come and take him for some rides to get him away from the house? That was such a nice thing to do. Glad John's eyes are getting better. Hope that continues!

I am looking forward to a bit cooler weather so I can walk with my pup. He sure has a lot of energy!
My cold is getting better but didn't want to go to church and expose anyone else. Hopefully I will be all better soon!!

Hugs and Blessings to All!!

Barbra. I am so sorry for your loss and glad you have family around to keep you busy. as far as getting organized, I am beginning to think that is just a myth!! I finally went thru the papers left from my mom's passing and that was hard but there are so many reminders of her I see every day that make me happy and sad at the same time.I think no matter who it is we lose time does help to replace the sadness with happy memories. I am an only child so losing my parents was very hard for m. I read in Laren BaCall's book that she was an only child and when her last parent passed away then she belonged to nobody. I never forgot that. but my kids all tell me i belong to them so it's all right.
Dee, i hope you are doing well, you do so much to encourage us and pray for us and i thank you. You have been a special person to me after helping me stumble around when I started Sparks. Also,Barbra. I sure needed the help!
. My husband, John, is doing a little better with eye sight since the cornea specialist put him on this cortisone regimen. He was able to see all 3 fingers she held up and could see them further back than before. Hopefully the eye will continue to get better.
I am having a hard time staying with program and doing the exercises from the chiropractor and I think I have had it with this knee that needs to be replaced. The cortisone isn't helping and I don't like taking all the pain pills and they don't help much either. It will be difficult to have the surgery and have John cared for too tho the girls are always ready to help but they have jobs too.
Well, i better quit writing about it and go and do some of it. i haven't been able to walk brandy very much and i so miss that time with her.
Kathleen, so glad you had time with your sister and i hope you are feeling better. Georgine emoticon

Hi, all! I've been missing because I was having a great visit with my sister. Now she has gone back home, and I'm a bit down.

I'm praying for everyone, especially Barbara and Dee and the rest of you who are dealing with so much. My DH is doing pretty well right now.

The Lord upholds all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

Dee hello!! Thanks for always stopping in to check on us!!

Barbara I hate to say how long I have been unorganized! Wish it was a product for sale!
Glad Phillip and his siblings were able to swim and spend time together! Hope it is a lovely weekend!

It is a nice and quiet day here. Want to get a few more things done today. If I could just do a little bit at a time. But know many of the things I have to do bring back memories of DH so I put off doing them. Not that I don't want to remember him but it is painful to miss him so much, and I miss him so much already. They tell me I will learn to go on. So will keep trying!

Hello everyone! Still trying to stay motivated. The hardest thing is...everything I do as soon as I finish one thing I walk away and can't tell what I did!
daddy's girl what is that "organizing" you do? Is that something buy off line or from another state? I sure could use a truck load of it if you have any left over! emoticon Seems like a trash truck blew up in my house the last two weeks!

Sam and Shannon came over today and brought the twins and they all got in the pool. Phillip really enjoyed spending time with his little brother and sister.

Hope everyone has a happy and Blessed Sunday!
Barbara

Good Evening!
Thanks Daddy's Girl! Right now it is still just a healing process, and as always the best cure is prayers! With the Lord I surely would be a complete mess!

I will try to continue checking in...maybe the interaction will help me.

God bless everyone...Barbara

Hello to All!!
Georgine so glad things are better with DH!! Cortisone can make blood sugars rise. Hope this doesn't begin it to be a problem for your DH.

Barbara so glad to see you post again but so sorry you have lost your DH! I will be praying for you! It is almost 18 mths since the Lord called my DH home now. It is a long road and please don't hesitate to write to me privately if you need to talk.

Hugs and blessings to all!

Well my dear friends a lot has happened on the farm the last year. The saddest thing I have to report is I lost the love of my life my dear husband, Charles the 15th of this month. He had a massive heart attach and died here at home with me and Phillip by his side.

We never know God's plan for us, but we know he will stand by us and guide us through these difficult times, if we have the courage to turn all our troubles and fears over to Him.

Granddaddy (Charles's dad) is 89 and is holding up well. He has been living on his own now for the past year, with us just checking on him daily. He is taking losing his only son fairly well.

Phillip is now 11, and is really quite the little man. He is holding up good. He is trying to take care of his granny and granddaddy.

Any friends that would like to view the obituary I am posting the link and feel free to sign the guest book, we will be printing it out. The name is Charles Warren,Jr

God Bless you and Please pray our family.
Barbara

I finally can sit here and catch up. We had warfarin chacik this morning and a check up with out primary doctor. He feels all is going well so did not change anything and that is fine with me. the big concern was the way he would gt all upset over things that weren't even real. The doctor thinks that was caused by his ammonia level which is now under control so life has been much better as far as that goes so we aren't thinking of hubby going into a facility anymore.
We saw the doctor about the cornea transplant and he has put John on a regimine with cortisone drops for 2 months. His first concern is to see if this will give John more sight. At this time a transpl;ant is not being considered. The shingles virus did a lot of damage to the cornea and the nerves to the cornea so we will see what improvement there is, if any, after 2 months. Of course, now i have drops to give again, I had to start a record of my own to make sure i am doing what he said. Just what I needed was more of anything but ," gotta do what I gotta do."
I can keep taking the tramodol that made me sick, I just have to eat , not take it on an ampty stomach. That's what food does to me--all i cared about was getting to the park for my fried bread so ended up in the hospital and no fried bread. Our Harvest Moon Festival is next month so i can get my fried bread finally.
I have been knocked off my Sparking with all these appts. and stress and worry so now must get back on. weigh in on the first, i may not be too happy!!
Dee, glad your sister is doing well and hope and prayer she will contuniue to be well.
Everybody remember to take of yourselves, Georgine emoticon

Georgine so glad DH is having less hallucinations!! Good to remember that medication's name so if prescribed again, you can ask for something else instead. Praying for the Dr appt tomorrow. With laser there is so much they can do now. Hope he can have more surgery done with better results!
I wouldn't ask to be a young widow but can't imagine making all these adjustments when I am older either! I think that would be much harder yet. But then again still doing and enjoying life I sure do miss DH and want him to share our first Grand baby together. Glad I am healthy and I have 6 wonderful children to help me when I do need help!
I am so glad for the dogs!! I would really miss them if I didn't have them!

Hugs to all!!

good morning! Just finished Hubby's shower. will catch up on here and take my shower. We finally had rain and finally have sunshine but the wind is awful again.
Tomorrow is the appt. with the cornea transplant specialist and we are all nervous about what we will hear. His eye has had retinal repair already and he is 77 so am afraid they won't attempt it and lose what sight he has. Hallucinations are much better, must be the neomyacin but he is feeling depressed now which i haven't seen till lately. I sure can't blame him and don't know what to say to him, feel helpless.
Dee, my aunt had an eye removed from a cancerous tumor. Good thing they are watching your sister as the cancer spread to my aunt's liver and we lost her. Will remember your sister in my prayers as well as you good friend. i will always remember all the help you gave me when I started sparks. I still need help at times!!
Kathleen, i am so frustrated for you, I hope something finally shows up. to give you relief.Prayers and good thoughts to you also.
DaddysGirl, it is good that you can do all the things you enjoy especially enjoying the dogs.
Have a good day everyone, Georgine

Whitecat was a great idea to do some studying yourself. Praying you find some answers!! So sorry you know about Lyme's disease in a real and personal way!!

Dee thanks for sharing about your sister. Glad they were able to get all the tumor with the eye. Praying it doesn't spread!!

Today was DDil's baby shower. It was wonderful and one of my dear long time friends that came to each one of my children's baby shower was able to come to my first Grandchild's baby shower! What fun!! The kids got some really nice things and are prepared! ;-)

Hugs and Blessings to all!!

She will be in my prayers from now on, and of course, you will be, too. That is very scary.

It hardly ever happens in our area, and I do not have most of the symptoms. My step-son in Maine has it. It is very nasty!

I have begun to wonder if maybe some of the medicines I take could be causing the fever. I'm going to do some research. I have found it is better if I have tried to find out as much as possible before asking doctors about stuff.

The nurse called. The latest round of blood tests still show no reason for my fevers. I am pretty discouraged.

Good Morning Friends.
I have a day full of quilting and cleaning house for company for our tatting class tonight. Please forgive me if my activities make you regret your caregiving. I don't mean it to effect you this way. I remembered I enjoyed hearing about someone else's "real" life. I hope you do too, but let me know I will post accordingly. ;-)

Dee so praying for your sister and you!! I don't know how you keep going and going and going!

Kathleen so glad the Dr is looking at your immune system. Praying he can find some answers that will help you.

Georgine I am sorry John is still having hallucinations. Like having a newborn when he can't go far from him. Ouch!! An abscessed tooth is no fun! Glad it doesn't require a root canal and crown.
Thanks! The puppy does keep me busy as does our older Sheltie. She has out lived her breed's life span already and the Vet said her heart is very good yet. She has some mini seizures but can manage without medication so far! She helped train the puppy to go outside to potty! What a blessing!! I love them both!

Hope everyone has a good day!!
Hugs to you all!!

good morning! I am having my coffee after geting bkfs. and pills for John. I have a chiropractor appt this morning, now just have a little sore area on my right side. i am trying to get back on track between John's problems and my abscessed tooth. It has taken all this time for the swelling to go down and i have a few pills yet to take, then will see the dentist. Lost another filling too, never ending but I am lucky i still have my own teeth such as they are.
John has been better on the neomycin but always has some trouble with allucinations later in the evenings. They have not been bad except for last nite. I just sitin my chair and do crosswords, read etc. sneak off to do some quick computer things, I play 2 games regularly and I relax and enjoy them plus they are the kind that make you think.
Kathleen, I can't believe you have no answers yet. I still think you should have been in the hospital with one doctor ordering tests and maybe consulting with others so one doctor has the whole picture and can see a problem. Your treatment seems so here and there with no answers and you still feeling ill. Can't believe you are being seen as an out aptient having to make appts. This has gone on way too long, I am concerned for you. Caretaking doesn't help as we all know. Hugs and prayers to you!
We haven't had a lot of appts. as they all seem to have landed in this next week which is very stressful when out of town. This morning I am moving one into Sept. We see the cornea specialist on Tuesday and I am so nervous about what he will say if John's eye is safe to have a cornea transplant. It will soon be a year since the shingles started. So frustrating it had to hit his only good eye.
Our daughter didn't move in with us. I didn't want her to lose her insurance at the store and she didn't want to have me pay her to live with us and care for her dad. She and the rest of the kids are all coming around and helping and John is doing better on the neomycin. We will see his primary doctor after we see the cornea specialist. I wish for less stressful times.
Dee, i am not in the loop about susan, hope things are well for her. My hay fever has been bothering esome, last nite must have sneezed 20 times, good thing I have Kleenex everywhee.
Brandy spent the weekend at the cabin playing with alex and the kids so was very sore and very quiet for 2 days but now is not acting her mormal puppy self yet. she doesn't want to gou outside??!! I have to get the leash to make her come out. I have benedryl for her allergies but am ready to call the vet again. I can't see anything wrong as far as bug bites or injuries.
I best get going. another cloudy cool morning, we need rain.
That puppy will give you fun and exercise Daddy's girl, enjoy as they do grow up so fast.
Have a good or better day everyone, Georgine

Yes, Dee, give us an update on Susan. I am also praying for you and your family.

My doc is checking for immune system disorders, which I think includes lupus. Thanks for prayers!
