oh my...that's quite a change of plans! Wishing you all the best...and with luck, that it can be done close to your home. I agree...110 miles is a wee bit "Tooooo Faaarrr" when in recovery mode! By comparison, my trip after foot surgery was only about 30 minutes...and I was glad to reach home... A suggestion for Plan B...could you at least stay overnight in Boise, near the hospital? I know that the hospital I worked at in Seattle had some arrangements available for out-of-area patients (although I would have guessed your surgeon might know about that option....) But might be worth a call to the Hospital Social Worker if you end up Boise-bound. All the Best!

Life here is perking along...in the rain again today. Went for a longer grocery shopping trip...and spent the rest of the afternoon with my foot up and iced. Somewhat overdid it! Also, I've removed the bandaging now per my surgeon...and I think its just not quite as cushioned as before! Ah well...this too shall pass!

Take care everyone---I understand the East Coasters are gonna get hit again---and we're taking a downturn in temps as well. But then...our mountains NEED that snow so not too many folks complaining out here. Catch you later, patti

Well my trip to Boise did not turn out like I expected. Instead of Hiatal Hernia surgery I will be having my Gallbladder taken out first. Right now it is for March 16th. I am checking with the surgeon up here where I live to see if we can get it done at the local hospital here. I will see her on March 3rd. I like the hospital down there but it would be such a long drive home after, being it is done as a out patient and you do home the same day. Driving 110 miles as a passenger not feeling good I don not think would be a great thing. I will keep you posted as to what is going on. The DR in Boise wants some tests done before I have Hiatal Hernia surgery any way.

Been busy this morning. Got the oil changed in my car and yesterday I got the tires changed over from snow to regular ones. Wed I head to Boise to see the surgeon on what is going to be done with the Hiatal Hernia. My heart DR and pain DR plus my regular DR wants something done with it. A lot of times I do not know if it is the hernia or I am having heart problems. They both give the same symptoms. I will find out on WED, no sense in worrying about it non. God will take care of it.

Have a good weekend and stay warm if you are in the cold belt right now.

Hi All! We are enjoying sunshine at least...and LOTS of Wind today! I really feel for those out on the East Coast....

I had my post-op appt today; and doctor was pleased with how everything is going! WooHoo!! So this week, I can start walking more, and have it down longer. Now all I have to do is get my eating back in control. Its a real pain to monitor calories and try to take pain meds "with food" every four hours...! I'm glad most of that is behind me. And my post-op weight was only up about 2lbs, so not too much "damage" to my ego or progress.... As I get busier again, the obsession with snacking will get drowned out too...!

Hope each of you are also having a good Monday; enjoying an extra day at home if you are still working and your employer gives you "President's day" off; or at least having a quiet day at work. Being as most folks here are in Health Care, not a lot of folks off I expect!

Glad someone else is having sunshine!! and your walk sounds really nice, even if you got cold. Way To Go! emoticon

I'm giving my foot one more "couch day" before I get into the seated videos and try to do something of the "exercise" sort.... but I did take a 3 min stroll out around my garden walk. Can't believe the growth in the iris and pansies in four days! LOL Is this February or April??!

I'm also trying to be mindful with keeping myself on the couch instead of into the kitchen snacks!! So far, so good. take care everyone! patti

Hi Again! emoticon Just sitting here with my foot up....

Everything went as expected on my foot surgery Monday. My Doc said he was pleased--very good news in my opinion. He was able to do the neuroma and toe re-alignment through the top of my foot, so I'm in a little surgical shoe, can put weight on it, and use crutches (or not) as I choose--and I haven't needed them here at home. I did use them yesterday some since I was dizzy/nausea, but already had a med here for it, and by afternoon was OK. Very little pain at all, so I'm cautiously cutting back a bit on the pain meds last night/today. This week my instructions are "Up and Iced"; I see Dr.G next Monday again...so Life is Good!!

It may be hard to stay inside this week...its sunshiny again after our Pineapple Express has passed. Over 3" rain in our yard---and much more around here. But so sad for our mountain snowpack (and skiers)...down to 9 percent of a "normal" year. Downright scary....!!

Hope you keep enjoying your week... Way To Go Ida on your exercise; and thanks to Lita for keeping track of us all! Catch you later,
patti

Getting on late today. Slept in till 8am. Body must have needed the sleep. Got shopping done early so I could come home and exercise and rest. Raining out and cold and damp. Snow is melting slow which is good for us. Maybe we will not flood this year. Figured out my meals for the day and catching up on posts.

“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

Did 4.78 mile on the treadmill. did it in 24 min intervals so I could rest in between. Need to take a break in between. With my heart I need to rest. Half way through my pulse jumped to 186 for about 1 min. With small vessel disease I just need to take things a little slower then I use to. Going to try for 4 miles on it today with breaks.

Ida, I'm almost (!) envious of your snow...!! We spent the long weekend with friends up at Mt Rainier for...snowshoeing...and pretty well got rained out! Wet, Windy--25pmh--...finally had a bit of snowfall...and more Wind! on Sunday...then when it was time to go home, finally got a sneak peak of the Mtn. Never got the snowshoes off the pack. Sigh... But it was good times with the friends, and a nice fireplace in the Lounge room.

Not much else going on here for me. Class, Volunteer work, bought a special bareroot rose, and some time with MIL...and suddenly its almost Thursday! Will get the rose in the ground tomorrow...

Oh... I got WooHoo!! news today-- Doctor appt; labs time... A1C surprisingly dropped from 5.9 to 5.7 Its not much...but the right direction, and after the "extended Holiday Eating period (ahem...)" quite a surprise. emoticon

Hope everyone else has good news this week as well! Enjoy!!

Sorry to learn you've been sick...! That's no way to start the New Year! emoticon

We are at only moderate winter temps out west here...32 this morning. Our low in that last round was 16...so we were just on the 'edge' of that arctic blast. Not sure how the little hummingbirds survive that! I brought their feeders in at night, and would get resoundly chewed out if they weren't back in place before 0800am. LOL

Coming up really fast is our winter outing to Mt Rainier over the long weekend. Hoping to snowshoe...but that will depend on the storms/weather patterns. In prep, we've been doing a lot of walking with our packs, and staircases. Great exercise.

Have a great day everyone...and enjoy your weekends!

Today I am all stuffed up again and doing a lot of coughing. Feeling cruddy. Will exercise some and rest some today. Nothing going on of any importance.
Drinking lots of fluids.

Don....

Thank you for the goodie. How have you been doing? How is the weather your way. I am glad the minus temps moved on. It was starting to get hard to take. at my age of 70. Now we have had 5 days of dense fog all day long.

I live in Donnelly ID It is between Boise and McCall. My DH is from Vancouver WA and I lived there for about 3 years. I am from Boston Mass and moved out west back in the 70's. A lot of the pictures we took on different vacations around Washington and Oregon. Some are from Idaho. We use to go to a lake in Oregon called Olallie lake in the wilderness to just get away.
Washington has lots of great places to go to. We even went to Indian Heaven in the Gifford Pinchot national forest there.

Have a great day. If you want to know more about me you can go to my page and read.

Ida, I love some of the pictures on your page....! Can I ask where in Idaho you live? I grew up in Spokane; spent a lot of summers around C'dA Lake and in northern Idaho. Then I lived in British Columbia for awhile....so really love those open, mountain views. I don't have much of that in Vancouver, Wa...but we do get to see those fantastic Mtn Volcanos on clear days!!

How is your sister..?

Hi There... I was looking for a Team to spread my wings a bit here on Spark...and this one jumped out at me! I'm retired (5 years), worked as a Medical Technologist at Univ Hosp in Seattle for many many years (worked in Chemistry; Blood Bank, and also have a Micro degree...) then we moved south to help out with my partner's Mom. At 96+, she needs "somewhat more assistance" than she used to!

I'm fortunate to enjoy pretty good health...a few "mechanical" issues with my feet is about the worst. My other issues are pretty well controlled at this time-- and I'm "almost, almost" down to a healthy weight. Those last 5-10 are challenging, especially as one ages! Even with lots of exercise... sigh....

I've enjoyed reading some of the threads on here, and will look forward to sharing this Journey towards Better Health with some of you!

Feeling much better today. Got my Pierogi's made and froze 3 dozen. Made 1 dozen for our pastor and his wife. This is the only time of the year I make them. Use to make 12 to 15 dozen. Getting too old to stand and make them.

God is my Strength & Salvation.
The Joy Of The LORD IS My Strength. .
PRAISE GOD always and he will take care of you,
Always Keep A Positive Attitude
