we are having sun today, but cold. Only 20 degrees right now.
Went to DR yesterday. He said he can not figure out why I am still coughing so bad since Nov. He wanted to put me on some more steroids for 15 days, but the cost my insurance would not cover. It was $220.00 for 15 days. Then he was going to try another one and it was $90.00. I told him I will put this in Gods hands as I do not have that kind of money to shell out for 15 days. He also said there is nothing else he can do for me.
I will just eat even more healthy and try to find some over the counter meds to try. Today I walked 5 miles this morning, but I had put my spark tracker in a different spot and it only registered .6 miles. I have another one that I wear so I just took off the SP one for today and will manual enter the other at the end of the day.

Hope everyone is doing well and I am praying for everyone on each of my teams.

Yesterday in 4 hrs. we ended up with 6 inches of snow. It stopped over night and started again this morning. We have had 3 more inches since 5:30am. Still snowing and more on the way. Saying 3-5 inches during the day and another 3-5 tonight.

Made a big batch of veggie beef soup to eat during the day. Warms the stomach up. Been out side shoveling also for 2hrs. It is a never ending task.

Have a great weekend everyone

Snowing again. I HATE SNOW. Went in to the pulmonary testing this morning and then got my blood work done. Had to fast so I got to eat at lunch when I got home. DH & I got everything done we had to before the snow started. In 1hr we have gotten 1.5 inches and we are in a white out. They say up to 5inches before midnight. Then snow through Feb 6th.

Will wait to see if I will have to go back on daytime oxygen again. I sure hope not. Blood work was for my TSH and vitamin D.

Morning everyone.........

Well the sun is out but only 10 degrees. I am feeling a little better today. Still going to rest as much as much as possible. If I only get a little walking in it is better then nothing. I just want to get better and get rid of what ever has attacked my body. I have been like this since before Nov and I don not like it. They are saying snow tonight through Feb 4 and I really hope it does not come. The temps are going to be cold in the teens till at least Feb 9.

Want to thank everyone that has been praying for me and to let you all know how much I appreciate it.

God is my Strength & Salvation.

Having a little better day today. Cough med, steroids, heart med, antibiotics, and pain med, inhaler is helping some today. Trying not to go outside unless I have to. it is only 12 degrees and high they say will be 19. They say we are going to have more snow up to 5 inches. We have had so much that we have had to put boards over some of our windows as the snow had blocked them and ripped one screen so far We do not want any of them broken as we just had them installed about 1-2 years ago. My wrist is wrapped and as long as I do not hold anything with too much weigh it is doing well today.

They say the Golden years are good. I would disagree with that if how I am feeling is any inkling to that.

Went to DR today. He did x-ray of chest, and hand changed my heart med as he said it could cause coughing fits, plus added antibiotics, cough med, new heart med and some steroids.

Have a appointment on Thursday with the pulmonary people. I have anther appointment with him on Feb 1 for a follow up. I sure hope what he is trying works.

Trying to take it easy today. More snow fell off roof around 5pm yesterday. DH & I spent 2hrs. cleaning it us so we could get out if we had to. My body is paying for it today. I ended up hurting my wrist that I broke back in 2006. I have it wrapped today. I just can not have my DH go out and do it himself as he has heart problems also.
We are thinking of selling our home come spring and moving down south where the weather is better. We have put it in God's hands.

Today all I am going to say is who ever is having snow cold temps and ice. I really do feel sorry for you as we have been going through it and more is coming. I know what you are going through and what you will go through. God will get you through all of this and we will all be a better person for it.

Hello, my name is Kristin I am getting back on the horse of heath and fitness. I am a physician assistant in the ED so I work goofy hours and don't always have time to eat the way I am supposed to. I am forcing myself to start taking care of myself that way I can take the best care of my patients.

Hi everyone........

Someone asked if we had the amount in one month The answer is NO
That was 131.5 from November through now. Last night we had 1.5 inches and so far today we have had 1 inch and still snowing. We used the snow blower to get a lot of the area, but we have to shovel the part that the snow blower will nit get into. I love this area, but today if I could sell my home I would at a drop of a dime. Even when I lived on the East coast as a child I do not remember this much snow in this short of time.

Going to try to have a positive day even with the snow. Shoveled for 2 hours this morning and now inside listening to Christian music to soul the sole. Relax the mind and just rest for a while before it stacks up again.
Here are some pictures from today.

wow...you are getting hit pretty hard....
Portland had 22+ inches of rain since Dec 1st...
and Crater Lake set new record of 196.7" snow!! (Last 195" was in 1948...)

...I'm wondering what the mountains in the Alaska Panhandle are getting...we plan a trip there in July (Skagway) and may be up to our ARR$$$'s....

Stay safe...enjoy getting all your indoor projects done while it quietly snows, snows, snows.... a good time for healing....

Well I am just getting on. Been out side cleaning side walks. It started snowing at 6:30am and we have been getting about 1 inch per hr. Already had 5 inches so far. They say we are expected to get up to10 inches today. I really hope not. We are so sick of snow here. and winter just started.

I am doing some what better, but half way up to par. Now I am going to rest and just had some home made veggie soup.

Today was another foggy day. Cold also minus 15 degrees. High was only 17 degrees. I just wish I could get over what is staying in my body as if it is some sort of flu or cold bug. Ever since I had the sinus infection and bronchitis's I still have not felt well.

Did some walking today and resting.

We only made it to 5 degrees for the high. That tells me the weather man does not know how to project the weather.

Relaxed and put some of the Christmas things away

We had a good Christmas. The sun was shinning. Today it is 6 degrees as of 2:30pm. The low today was minus 16. It is cloudy out and still cold. They say snow again. Did stick to my plan to stay within my calorie count. Winter just started and I am ready for spring to start. This year is even worse then when we got here in 2007. It was bad enough that year, but this tops that so far. We will be fighting the water in the spring if it does not melt slow. We will flood as our home is built on farm land which does not hold water that great. We do have pumps to help as we did flood back in 2012-2013.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and will have a safe and good New Year. I have already figured out my New Year's resolution. I kept to my last year one and made it through with out braking it.

Praise God....
The sun is out right now for the last 2hrs. It is so nice to see it. But the snow is coming back. We are waiting for our snow blower to arrive from Boise. They said by noon. The power is back on for now. Not sure if it will go out again, but we are leaving all the cords so we can just hook back up to the generator if needed. I did not ever think we would see the sun for this long again. The forecast is snow till Dec 31st. We have already had 82 inches of snow. Packed snow on my measuring stick in front yard is berried. The stick is 36 inches high.

I will cook my turkey tomorrow as that way I know it will be ready for dinner on Friday. I will have it carved and packed in turkey juice and refrigerated. Thursday I will get the rest of the things done so on Friday when our guests arrive I will be able to enjoy and just relax with them.

Hope everyone is doing well and that you all have a great Christmas.

We are under a ADVISORIES - WINTER STORM WARNING We have gotten from last night at 10pm till now at 10:25 9 inches of snow and still coming down heavy. We know we will have a white Christmas. I am to the point that I hate snow. We can not get out to do anything.
Power has been flickering again today. I just hope that it does not go out again today, but if it does we are ready.
Anyone that wants a white Christmas or wants snow. You can come to my home. It is to the point we can not even see out our windows as the snow has totally covered them. There is no where else the snow can go but up.

Merry Christmas everyone from our family to yours
Ida & Keith

We have been without power all day. It just came back on. Thank God we have a generator that will keep our ref & freezer working. It went off at 10:20 and it is 5:12 now. Thank God again that it had stopped snowing during the outage, it is snowing now again.

Hope all had a great weekend

Instead of 3-5 inches of snow, they are saying 5-15 by morning and more snow after that till next Thursday.

My car battery went dead yesterday so we did not get anything done. Today we went and finished up shopping for Christmas dinner so we don't have to go out next week.
Hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Christmas. It will be a somewhat quiet day as all our family is in Oregon, Washington state and Virginia. Our friend and her DH and her parents are coming for dinner. They came last year also. She was our DR then. She has retired.

Well the snow is back. They say up to 3-5 inches today. At least we had some sun yesterday. I use to like the snow, not I am getting to hate it. We have to still go shopping today and also pick up meds.
Will be back later

Well the sun has been shinning all day. It was nice to see it. They say the snow starts again tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it. I think I pulled a mussel or a rib the other day shoveling the snow. I really hurt. Today we have just been recouping from the total of 27 inches in 3 days. I feel like I live in a cave as the snow that has come off the roof is above the windows. We still have a lot of snow on the roof that has not come off yet. Today seems more like the weekend for us.

balmy here too............

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

It is unusually warm where I am. I had to leave my sweater at home because it was way too warm. Almost felt like it was summer still.

I am trying to get this mountain of homework done. I have two portfolios and a dietitian profile to do which I can't even do at the moment due to procrastination and idiocy on my part (I needed to interview a dietitian and get answers to some questions, I haven't even contacted a dietitian, and I'm supposed to present it tomorrow morning).
At least I only have a year of schooling left before my internship, then I'll be an RD!

well we are in taking a break and having lunch drying our cloths and resting before we go back out. It is 11:12am and have been out side since 5am. We have been under a
WINTER STORM WARNING ADVISORIES since last night. It is going to be this way till Tuesday morning. We have removed 17 inches or more of snow so far. It is coming down right now at about 1 inch per hr. We will be going back out in a while as we can not afford to have our drive way blocked. I just wish the snow would stop for about 2 hrs. so we can catch up on all the shoveling. Will be burning a lot of calories today.

Have a good weekend and week everyone.

well we are getting snow again today. So far it is 3.5 inches. I went out early and shoveled and now DH is out doing it. When I went out we only had 1.5 inches and all the rest has been coming down while I was doing it.

My kids in Washington and Oregon have been hit with rain and winds where they do not have any power. I emailed them yesterday and got a answer this morning. They had to email from work.

Have a great weekend everyone.

So far today we have had 3.5 inches of snow. Here is Picture of part of ski resort that we see out our back window. On a nice day we can see all the way up the lift. We spent 2 hr out shoveling the drive way so if we need to get out. They say another 3-5 inches this afternoon. I really hope not.

The weather here is being so weird. It rained early. Then it started snowing, real windy. We are on a ADVISORIES - WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY starting later today. They are saying up to 11 inches of snow. I really hope they are wrong.

I am staying inside and going to do some walking. Have a great day everyone.

I finished up with the pierogies today. I ended up with 12 dozen. I was hoping for 15 but it did not work out that way. I will be using a lot of them as gifts for special people. We had another 2 inches of snow this morning.

I still do not feel that great but I know I have to get things done. I have never tried fruit ones. I know I do not like potato and cheese ones. Before my dad died he got me a book with different kinds. I may try making some beef and mushrooms, cabbage and mushrooms .

Been busy making Pierogi mix today. Will be starting on making them tomorrow and freezing them for Christmas gifts. It takes a while to get the filling made and then I put it away till I get the dough made tomorrow and start making them. It will take about 2.5 weeks to get all of them done. That will be around 12 dozen.

We are having guests for Christmas dinner so I need to get a lot of things done early so I can relax with company.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I had a great time with friends and there family. Did not even count calories I know I had at least 875.

Around 50 family members. Reminded me of the Thanksgivings with my family way back when all 7 of us kids and our families went to my parents home and gather around the table. Brought back lots of memories of how families always got together. Now a day that is not common as kids go there ways on the Holidays.

Feeling good except I ate something that kicked off the gerds (acid reflex) I knew that might happen. I will live with it for a couple of days and get back to where I am not taking a lot of antacids.

Glade every got to spend time with Loved ones.

I am feeling so much better today. I finished the steroids pills yesterday. Now we see if I can stay well without them. It is cold today. Temp will reach 28 degrees for the high. Yesterday we got 4 inches of snow. I did go out and help DH shovel. Only able to get 25 min in, but any help I can give him helps.

Feeling better today.

I just finished making home made pumpkin custard from the puree I made from my home grown pumpkins. I also made pumpkin seeds.

The sun is out and it is up to 20 degrees at 12:30. Staying in and just doing what the DR said. I have 3 more days of pills left and we will see what happens after that. I really hope that it has totally gone away by that time.

Missed church again which bothers me, but Monday I will be able to listen to it on our church web site. The DR really does not want me around people till I am over this and my immune system is better. I am not contagious, but she does not want me to pick up something from someone else.

Prayers are out there for all.

Yesterday we had 4.5 inches of snow. The winds were going at 25-35 MPH. It was a cold and horrible day. Today the sun is out and calm.

I am doing better today. Taking one day at a time. I don't like the pills but if they are working that is all that counts.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Afternoon...........

Just want to let everyone know I am doing better today then I have been. The DR visit went well. This DR who is covering for my regular DR put on a different kind of cough med and some steroid meds pills for 10 days that she thinks might help. I am not too keen about them, but if they help it will be great. She thinks a lot of this is being caused from the Gerds and being my esophagus does not close like it should. She is kind of worried that this may keep happening to me if I get a little stressed out or I eat the wrong foods. I really hope so. At least today I feel like a human and not coughing like I was. I will keep everyone updated.
Thank you all for your concern and well wishes.

I see the DR again today. What ever I have will not go away. I have had it for 4 weeks now and it is not getting any better. If I did not know better I would think that I had pneumonia.

Morning all.....
I am not still feeling all that well today. Another week of not going to church. Thank God our sermons are on line so I can listen to the week before today.

My sinus is still swollen and I have this giant cold sore on my bottom lip now. The sun is out but very cold. They say snow later today. I need to get better as we have our Thanksgiving pot luck next Sunday and we have been invited to Thanksgiving dinner at some friends.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Thank you everyone for the Spark Goodie.It means a lot to me. A little bit about why I have not been posting. A lot of my health problems started with my last bought of cancer. I made it through the first 3 cancers the breast cancer is what has done me in. That ended burning my left lung burned my thyroid, and started the Gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD) by damaging my esophagus the DR said. I worrie every time that I get something as I do not know if it will be cancer again. I am just like the rest of our team on that one. I just don't say it like they do. I am thankful that I found the team's I am on when I was going through the breast cancer. It has been a life saver for me.I am not as open about talking as some of the team members as I am kind of a privet person. The DR said I have bronchitis which is caused by the infection in my esophagus. I ended up vomiting for almost a hour off and on the other night. I just wanted to die. I ended up getting Bronchitis and now I have a sinus infection.

I could put things like this in a blog, but I don't want people feeling sorry for me. Today I feel somewhat good and I hope it lasts the rest of the day so I can get some exercising in.

Have a great weekend and thanks for listening to a 70 year old whine.

God Bless

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

Had church this morning. It was awesome. Kind of down still as a friend on my Cancer team died on Thursday from a long battle with cancer. It started back in 2003 and she has been a inspiration to myself and others. She lost her father 11 months ago and her mother 3 months ago. She always kept a great attitude and encouraged all of us when we were down. She will be missed. The good thing is she is cancer free and pain free. She is up in heaven now with Jesus and watching down over all of us.

God is my Strength & Salvation.

PRAISE GOD always and he will take care of you,

Hi Patti.....
I will survive this health problem. It comes with age the DR said. As for the fire in Idaho here in Boise here the smoke is really bad and bothering me along with everyone else. Can not wait to get back up North the 110 miles on Friday. It should be better air up there.

Thank you everyone for the prayers. They really do help.

I am doing OK tonight. Out come was not what I wanted to here. I will have to talk to my DR hopeful tomorrow or on Friday as I was kind of out of it. I think he said that my esophagus is damage and does not always open and that is why I always feel something is stuck in my throat, and that I would be at risk of dyeing if I go through with the hernia surgery. At least that is what I think he said. Right now my throat is so sore that I am having trouble swallow.
I an just trying to get through this part. The first test this morning where they put a tube up your nose and down the throat is where they found the damage.

I am going to leave this in God's hands for now and let him take care of things. Getting ready to go back to bed.
