Today's positive quote-The harder you work for something, the greater you'll feel when you achieve it. Posting this quote in hubby's room today. I post him quotes every now and then to keep him going. He is doing great, walked with help yesterday, we need time alone, but I sure miss him. It will be months until he is ready to come home and what a home coming he will get. I plan on leaving our apartment door open and posting a sign on the front door to the apartments telling everyone he is home, stop by and say hi. I am handling the hot walk to the bus stop by stopping half way there and getting ice water. I am back on track with my Every Other Day Diet and even rewarded myself with a copy of the book. I did not take it back when I put back on 4 pounds. This week I took two of those pounds off.

oh dear Miller, so emoticon to hear of your woes. I have been using a walker/rollators for years on my bad days. Between bad feet, a dodgy knee on 1 side & a dodgy hip on the other plus lung health issues it has been a wonderful bonus for me. I keep one in the car all the time now.

Sharyn, thank you very much for the encouragement. emoticon emoticon
You asked about the cost of the sleep apnea Cpap equipment here. I can't remember what the total cost was, but we only had to pay about 20% of it. It was probably between $200 and $300. I can't believe you'd have to pay $3,000!!! That's really ridiculous!!! How do they expect anyone to be able to afford that?? I wish there was a subsidy for it. I know you can buy used Cpap equipment on websites like CraigsList, but you'd still have to have someone calibrate it and you'd still need new hoses and masks, etc.


Janice, your Grandson is so cute!!! And congratulations on your great news of the new little one that's coming!!!
emoticon emoticon


Sparkling, Lucy is lovely!!! emoticon


Annette, good luck with the Whole 30 - I read good things about it!!!
emoticon


Janice (IN), hope you enjoyed your rest day - you certainly deserve one!!!

Debbie, I hope all went well with your appointment.

Hello to everyone else, too. I hope everybody is having a good week.

_____________

My news isn't very cheery today. The orthopedist says I need to go ahead and have total knee replacement. I also pulled a tendon in the "good" leg so now both knees hurt and think I need one of those rollators as even a cane isn't enough. I'm also fighting a cold and cough that my husband gave me - I think he picked up in China or on the plane. Also, my daughter is having to miss work this week due to her severe anxiety and depression. I pray she can return next week. I miss my mother so much at times like this. She would know just what to say and do.
emoticon

Update - just found out my daughter's doctor wants her to miss a second week of work. I don't know what in the world is going to happen with her future - have to take it a day at a time, I guess.

emoticon emoticon Janice & Lee. how exciting for you all.

Sparkling we look like getting more rain here today as well. I love the photo of Lucy.

Annette I feel the same when I see all the high temps you ladies are getting YUK! you poor people.

my Sister & Hubby are visiting this morning to put in a doggie door in so our other sister's little one can snuggle in safety while I leave the house & the house can still be locked up. My 2 have a huge kennel to snuggle into but he has never been locked outdoors in his entire 18+ years so we must compromise a little for him.

FLASUN....congratulations for the wonderful news about the new baby on the way. So exciting

I am reading all the very hot temperatures you ladies have to deal with...and I start to sweat in empathy. We've had some warm days....followed by thunderstorms and tornado watches...but nothing like your heat.
Two precious days of my holiday time off for this month. I have been watching my daughter do a Whole 30 regime...well, she's at day 45(so Whole 45) and I am inspired by the results in her. She's happier, less anxious and looks strong and healthy. She inspired me to try it for one month. An experiment on myself. Daughter says the challenge is finding clean food without all the sugars and additives in it. The bonus is...this is Farmers Market season...lots of home grown stuff there:)

Sharyn, YOU are so RIGHT!! Really enjoying my family!!!!

Yesterday was pool time and fun & games.......Moshe's bike was just a little big for him, but he still managed to ride with a little help from his Uncle Sky. Getting on it and riding was no problem....just worried about the stopping and getting off of it. Next year will be just right!!!!!

Also next year will be another grandchild!!! YES!!! My daughter told us last night she is expecting in January!!!!! emoticon

emoticon Sparkling. It's great you have a cool place to walk Lucy. No such joy here for when it's hot.

My babies were a little put out yesterday because they went for such a short walk. I thought I would see just how far my sisters little geriatric could walk & 10 minutes was his limit. So now I'll take his lead with us in the shopping cart that I walk him in & he can walk a bit/ get pushed a bit. he has gone 18 but not sure if he has past 19

Today is my day of rest. I was very busy yesterday with getting the things ready for the picnic. Hauled all of the food to the park, had help setting it up, and then took all the leftovers and dirty dishes home again. will clean my kitchen today and some little jobs around the house, but no big jobs or heavy lifting.

Debbie so glad for you having comfy walking weather. emoticon

Sparkling & Miller what are the prices for the CPAP equipment like in the US. here it's in the range of $3000 plus to set up.

Miller I am so sorry the depression is whipping you at the moment. Stay strong my friend. I know you will get through it.

I need to rest up this week in preparation for the Boys coming on Saturday for a week but I keep seeing things I want to do around the house ..... like toss out a king single bed from the spare room & a set of shelves from the lounge room. BUT I know if I start moving furniture it will leave me so exhausted that I will hardly cope next week. So I MUST turn a blind eye to them.

Janice (Fl) I see you are having an emoticon time with your family visiting.

have a fantastic day everyone

Hi All,

All last week and yesterday included....weather has been great. Low humidity and temps in the 70's lower 80's. Got in a walk outside each day. Today another nice one. Yesterday walked to gym. It's a 20-23 minute walk. Got in about 40 or so minutes round trip and then when at gym 20 minutes on treadmill. Felt great! Tomorrow I'll go to gym and do treadmill and strength.

Thanks for the hug goodie, yesterday. Could use that hug today. Today I have an appt. I go to yearly. Not looking forward to. It's someone I've never seen before. The woman I use to see retired.

I'm hoping to get a walk in today. We will see how warm it feels after my appt. this morning. Have a great Tuesday!

Debbie

Hi! Miller- my DH had the test for sleep apnea. He receives his equipment on Thursday. I KNEW he must have it, I felt him not breathing 1 night & woke him up. He started breathing right away. He said the night they did the test was the BEST night of sleep he had remembered in years! So now we have a new bed, & he will have his air at night & I'm sure he will be jumping out of bed in the mornings, once again!

Thanks, Sharyn, it's just depression rearing it's ugly head. My daughter is struggling with severe depression and anxiety right now and that makes mine worse. But I know it will pass - it always does.

One other thing that helps my husband's friend. He not only sleeps in a recliner, but he also has a fan blowing on him while he's in the recliner and that seems to help a lot.

Miller I suspect they could be right about it but it simply isn't an option for me as I cannot afford it. I have looked into the costs & they are so over the moon it is ludicrous AND there is no government subsidy for it.

in reference to sleeping in a recliner - I already see that on the horizon for me because of lung health issues & reflux.

I will just have to find ways around it & find other ways to manage my low energy levels, such as improving my protein intake & nana naps.

I am sorry your not feeling great to Miller emoticon

Sharyn, I'm not feeling well today, but I wanted to respond to what you said about sleep apnea. I told my husband for years that he had it, but he refused to go to the doctor. When he began leaping from bed in the middle of the night to run outside just to breathe in the air because he felt he was smothering, he finally decided to go. When they did his sleep study, he didn't even have to spend the whole night, because he stopped breathing 60 times in a very short while. This wasn't a surprise to me.

He now wears a C-pap mask (or nose piece) and uses the machine every single night and, while it is an inconvenience, he won't sleep without it because it helps him so much. He can breathe well and get a good night's sleep and feel rested in the morning. Without a good night's sleep, fatigue sets in and he feels tired all the time. Plus, there is a risk of death. He has a good friend who also has sleep apnea, but the friend won't use the machine or mask - instead he sleeps every night in a recliner so that he's pretty much sitting up and sleeping. At least it helps him not stop breathing.

I urge you to reconsider. I truly think sleep apnea is real and the C-pap has saved my husband's life. I remember a friend of mine when I was in grade school - her name was Pam and one night her father died suddenly and we never knew why. I'm convinced it was sleep apnea - he probably just quit breathing and couldn't wake himself and died. That was back in the early 1960's before we knew about sleep apnea.

Just to make sure you know - it's not like being on a ventilator. It's not being on oxygen. It's simply air - that's all.

If they think you have sleep apnea, then you very well might and it could be causing your fatigue. Okay, I've said enough and I don't want to be a nag, but I care about you. Still, you have to do what you think is best.

Annette I love camping but I never get to do it these days. great you can

emoticon Miller, Nola, Janice (In), Sparkling, Debbie, Kathryn and everyone else on the team.

I had an appointment with an OT yesterday & I thought it went well. She gave me lots to think about AND she said that I doing really great in managing my health issues in that I am happy to use aides & appliances & plan my days ahead to best utilize my energy levels. One thing she did say that absolutely REFUSE to entertain is 'sleep apnea'. I will NOT go down that path as the expense is over the moon. It is such a money maker for the suppliers that it is just plain wrong ..... specially if sleep issues are as bad as they suggest.

Good morning everyone. It feels like I was cut off from my computer forever...lol. We spent the weekend at our 96 acres...in one of the holiday trailers we put out there. Daughter and son-in-law asked to meet us there so they could BBQ a steak supper for husband for belated Father's Day.
The difficult time for me is the change in eating when we are "camping". However...I am more physically active when I am out there. We have an established trail system in the forest that we take long walks on. With baby strapped to my chest it's a bit more of a workout.

CHANGING-TURTLE...I find I need to step on that scale several days a week...if not daily. When I stuff it into storage...I pile on the weight. I need that daily accountability. I am fine with the daily ups and downs...just looking for the general downward trajectory.

I had put my scale in time out in the storage closet and the day before yesterday took it out. Was not to happy when I got on it, was up 4 pounds. I need to use the scale to stay on course. Yesterday I got right back on track and had a nice fast day. Today the scale has me down one pound. I fixed up the spot my scale is in with motivational quote and a before photo of me. I also posted phots on the frig and pantry door. I want to see those photos and think before I eat. 50 pounds ago I did not look so good, I was quite a sight, and not a pretty one. I was a big fat slob who ate like there was no tomorrow. Now I eat healthy 80% of the time, I did eat chips and a candy bar Friday. But yesterdays snacks were two apples and I bought a big bag of them today for my snacks. Today's positive quote-You will succeed!!!

She thought she could so she did, every other day fasting

Dodging rain drops again today. Talked to my son and he is ready to come home on Friday. Getting ready for a cook out that an organization I belong to is having at noon on Monday. Forgot the baked beans!

Other than that, I am resting today.

Sharyn, yes my husband returned from China last weekend. The trip had positives and negatives. The positives are that he got the project completed and he made it safely back home. The negatives are that he didn't get to sight-see and he had trouble with communication. Basically, all he saw was the airport, the hotel, and the factory where he was working - there wasn't time for anything else.

He was told everyone he would be interacting with would understand and speak English, but that wasn't the case. Also, he ate very little because some of the food was unidentifiable and unappealing. He's not hard to please when it comes to food and he likes many types of foreign cuisine, but he took photos of some of the food and it did look very strange. He did enjoy breakfast every morning - the hotel had a fabulous breakfast buffet.

I'm just glad he's safely home and that the trip was a success work-wise. I was surprised to hear him say that he would be willing to go again in the future. But he hopes he can go for two weeks next time so he can get in some sight-seeing over a weekend.

Miller glad things are looking up for you & your DD. How is your Hubby's trip going or has he returned home??

Janice (Fl) there is a Mall walking group here but I couldn't bear doing Mall walking. I HATE the noise. I only go there if I REALLY need to & then I get my stuff & out ASAP.

Janice, I love the bike you got for your grandson - it looks brand new!! Hope you can find a nice helmet. He's going to Love it!!!

Sharyn, sounds like it was hard work to get the fence secured, but worth it since little Shorty will be safe and secure.

Kathryn, I wish I could walk like you - it's amazing and so good for you!!!

Hope you found some good $5 deals!! emoticon

My knee is getting much worse again - I'm taking three Advil at a time because the pain is so bad. I see the doctor on Wednesday.

My DD and I are supposed to go have brunch at Cracker Barrel today - that's real treat, as we hardly ever go anywhere - I'm looking forward to it!!!

First I went to Menards to get mulch. Menards is a Home Depot, Lowes type of store . We have in Indiana &. Michigan. Bought 9. bags of mulch. Started on that and decided to pull out a tree stump in the way. Got my. Green Beast and it came right out after some digging away the dirt and chopping some roots. Cut some dead limbs out of my Redbud tree. I am so tired and I think I will go to bed early. And weeded a LOT!!!

PHEW! emoticon despite the icy cold weather this morning & I am now really hot. I went out to do the daily round of cleaning up the yard after the dogs & noticed a small hole under a fence where the dirt had been washed away with all the rain we've had. THAT is a repair job that could not be put off or my little Shorty would dig his way out with the next storm that happened when I wasn't home. Was easy to cover up but getting to it past the tree & shrubs was quite a task. all fixed now

Up bright and early to enjoy the nice cool morning it will be in the 90's later today. My walk home is in that heat but walk mostly in the shade. I walked 2.86 miles in 68 minutes yesterday a good walk. I am walking a little slower as the route is new, am enjoying looking around. I have a ways to walk to the bus stop going both ways. The stop is in the shade with nice benches to sit on both ways. But I have it timed so I don't have to wait to long for the bus. The neighborhood is commercial with a few fast food places calling my name, had to tell them no my dinner was at home in the crock pot. This morning I am going to the Supermarket for the $5 Friday sales. I have some jello to return from last week, it is not sugar free. Today's positive quote-No magic pill exists. This does not happen over night. Just hard work and dedication. Stay focused. Sending everyone emoticon that all goes well for you today
emoticon

Indiana Janice I am like you happy to see what the day brings hope all is good

Janice the bike is really neat

Shrayn sorry you can't do the walking you use to do but good you can get your exercise in the pool, I take it you go to an indoor heated pool?

Miller hoping you are feeling better today and your daughter has some really good days at work

INDORTY...I saw your good morning Friday...and for a moment forgot what day it was...and where you live...lol. Hopefully the reason for your tiredness can be figured out.

FLASUN...I work with women who enjoy, like you, the thing I really dislike...shopping. I think it comes down to the stress of being around so many people. This would explain my preference for night shift working. I have to work hard against my introverted nature.

I was glad to go to court...even though it was adjourned again...for the 7th time. We got to glean a couple pieces of information we would not have been given otherwise. The neuro-psych evaluations(with parenting components) done on both my sister and her husband back in the beginning of April...still aren't in. It's been moved to July 27. We will have had baby for 6 months by then...and we are told by our Kinship worker that this is the point where we can ask for copies of court documents:) Which we will do. I have that day off...I will be sitting in court again. Meanwhile...back to asking and asking social services our questions.

I also am still shaking off this nasty virus thing I caught off of typhoid baby. Still no sense of taste or smell. I do need to get myself back to moving and active again. I have been awefully sluggish since baby came. I'm slowly getting my eating under control (I love food), but I need to get moving. Part of that plan is to work on a West Coast Swing routine with husband. Our dance club will be doing a world flash mob swing again in September. It will take that long to get our club up to speed on it. For me, dancing is a great exercise as I can do it longer than a regular workout...and not even feel like I was "working out".

no Janice not weird weather. it's perfect weather for our winter. Lots of rain and FREEZING cold.

I love walking but it no longer loves me. the arthritis has got into my toes & ankles and 1 of my knees so my land walks are short. but to compensate I go to the pool & do a lot in the water.

the 2 sessions went well although my physio is a bit concerned at how tired always seem to be. My GP has done all the blood tests possible & nothing shows up there so we agree it's just the 'nature of the beast' BUT the physio arranged for the OT to see me & see what can be done to improve my energy levels.

Been busy listing my 21 items this morning. Got them all in.

Janice......Yes I did have fun shopping!! Found a very nice bike for my grandson when he is here next week. We went to Target today to buy it a new tire/tube and it looks brand new!!

Kathryn, I got all my own teeth emoticon ....the blood has stopped for now so I'm not going to worry so much about going. The $$$ is way to much....last time they looked at my mouth ...told me they couldn't pull a tooth and charged me $75. Glad to hear you and hubby are helping out one another. I know it has to be hard for you to control the eating in the evening. How was your fast day ? I know emoticon

Debbie, emoticon to you on getting your 10,000 steps!!! That is really GREAT!!!! Your weather sounds awesome!! Will be waiting on the dentist for right now.

Sparkling.......Thanks for your help on dentist.....not that I FEAR them...I just don't want to spend more needless money if it is nothing that serious....and right now I'm all better!! No pain!!!

Sharyn.......Weird weather you must be getting!!! How was your shopping today? How was the Education session and exercise session?

Talked it over with hubby last night and I will not be going in so early in the morning. He has his PT in the morning and doesn't need me. I will just take the morning to do things for myself and go see him at lunch time. He is doing more in Pt at this place but only in the morning he has the rest of the day to relax. I am doing breathing exercises and leg exercises 2 x a day with him. We were just doing the breathing exercises but need to do the legs too. He is having pain just laying still all afternoon. I have to walk more to this new place but feel this is good exercise for me, now if I can just get control of my eating again. Have been doing some extra snacking in the evening that I have to stop. Today is a fast day and I will eat healthy. Positive quote-Stop waiting for things to happen go out there and make them happen

Sharyn enjoy your exercise class emoticon

Debbie so good to hear from a fallow walker. I love my walks, did a little over 3 miles yesterday in 100 degree weather. Could not help it had to be out at that time.

She thought she could so she did, every other day fasting

Good Morning Lovely Ladies!

I got out this morning for my walk. It was 66 and pretty low humidity. LOVE IT! I continue to get my steps in. My goal is 10,000 a day. I went way past that on Monday. Yesterday I got in 10,003! Just made that one. Today I should be able to do my 10,000. My eating remains on track. That feels awesome. Since I got off track for about a month.

Miller, I hope your temps cool off a bit. We're in the upper 70's to low 80's all week. Perfect weather! Saturday is suppose to be 90 and humid. I'm out enjoying while I can.

Janice, thanks! It feels so good after I get my walk in. Being out in the sunshine. I know what you mean about going to the dentist! Ya gotta to do what ya gotta do! Hope it's nothing too serious.

Everyone have a great hump day!

Debbie

2016 is my year to reach goal and STAY there.

Positive quote-Be consistent it works and it shows.
Hubby was moved to a skilled nursing home for less intense rehab. One good thing so far, the food is good and hubby is eating better. He shared with me that is throat hurts a lot and we found out they had put a large tube down his throat that's why it hurts. The home gave him ice cream yesterday and of course they brought me a dish two. There went my fast day oh well will just make today one. Have an appointment with my therapist today and an appointment at the pace hubby was at before to pick up papers. Then off to visit with hubby. Some one said I should take a day off but really this is my life. I am getting a lot of good exercise in, walking a little over 3 miles a day in my walks, feels good too. My legs are really toned.

Janice go see that dentist!!! Do you have your own teeth or are they in a jar by your bed? I have two appointments this month one for cleaning and one for filling. I have 4 filling to do so will be going next month too. I use to freak out about getting my teeth worked on and had to take meds, but worked through it and can handle it now. I even look forward to it because I get neat stickers for my calendar.

Annette hoping every thing goes well for you and baby

Annette--- Good Luck today

Janice -- have fun shopping today

I used to hate the dentist. I was a white knuckle person because of past experience. I am so much better because they work with me and my uncomfortable experiences.

I adore going to the dentist...NOT! Remember my blurb about rowing our own boats with regards to our health...well...I tend to row right on past the Dentist's office as fast as I can. Ignoring those handy little reminders to come in for a checkup. I'm a great big chicken. I hate the pain cause by their digging around in there.

Tonight/tomorrow is going to be a long stretch. I'm doing my shift...coming home to change...then we are headed to court which is 1 1/2 hours away. We are just observers...not allowed to speak. And...we have to be NICE. No rolling eyes etc. We were told by our Kinship worker that we could be introduced to the court as baby's Kinship caregivers...but when I asked the caseworker to do this...she declined. Said we weren't a party to the file. When the initial investigators were trying to place baby into our home, we were told how integral and important a part of the TEAM we were...with this second set of caseworkers we are being told we don't need to know stuff because we are just caregivers. grrrrrrrrr! The dynamic is definitely "Them BIG us SMALL". Yet they all agree that bio-mom isn't even capable of packing a diaper bag, let alone care for a child...and her husband(not the bio-dad) has his own mental health issues and lengthy criminal history including arson and assault.

We are going so that we can try and learn something, anything to figure out what direction the fate of baby is going to go. She is now five months old. They have to have a plan for her somewhere/sometime. She can't remain "in care" in limbo forever. We are on a fact-finding mission.

emoticon Miller! My doctor said I probably have bleeding gums....also from the radiation I had. So I need to see a dentist. I really do HATE going to dentist!

Glad to hear your sister went home and hoping she made the right decision. Also that is great she found out about her high blood pressure! How was your hubby's trip to China?

Sharyn, Glad to hear your sister is doing well now! Not so nice of Hudson to wake you at 3:30!!! We wake up around 4am.....but was in bed by 8pm. My hubby got so tired he went at 6pm!!!!

Kathryn, Glad to hear your hubby is in a place closer for you. Try not to stress too much....I know it must be hard for him to be away for another 2 months! Wishing him the BEST!!!

Sparkling, YOU have such wonderful pictures......you and sisters are just Gorgeous!!!

Janice, did you get in your walk? How was the weather there today?

Debbie, Good for you on your steps!!! Glad the humidity broke!!

Baking a nice chicken meal right now and hoping our son will get off work early to get home to enjoy dinner with us!

Stopping by with an update about my sister. She's going home from the hospital today. She decided not to have the bronchoscopy done since the lung specialist last evening didnít think she needed it. I havenít heard what the 2nd lung specialist thought (she was to see another this morning), but my niece texted me last night to say that my sister was adamant that she was going home today no matter what the 2nd opinion turned out to be!! The blessing in all of this is that her extremely high blood pressure problem was diagnosed and now she can, and hopefully will, continue treatment for it going forward. She never goes to doctors and would never have seen one about her blood pressure if she hadnít been forced to by these circumstances, so Iím grateful for that. Thanks again for thoughts, prayers, and good wishes for her and her family.
emoticon


Janice, I hope your primary doctor visit went well and I hope you get some answers or a referral to a dentist or someone who can help. So glad your son is visiting - I know you enjoy seeing him so much!!
emoticon


Kathryn, I hope your DH recovers well in this new place. I'm sure it was stressful to move, but hopefully it will be a good change.
emoticon


Sharyn, so glad your sister is feeling better and more settled where she is. I hope she'll stay as long as they want her to. (She and my sister sound a lot alike!!)
emoticon


Sparkling, have fun with your "sisters." Great pics!!

Debbie, I'm glad your humidity broke!! Our weather had cooled off a bit for a few days, but now back to the 90's. I'm doing most of my walking in air-conditioned stores!! I hope you're managing to stay cool!!

Janice (IN), hope it's not too hot and humid for your yard work.

Kathryn, most definitely remember to look after yourself while you are encouraging hubby. As carers we can become so engrossed in helping others we forget the self. Finger crossed this place is as good as it sounds.

Sparkling more great photos - emoticon them

Janice (In) all the best on getting the yard work done. I did a little yesterday before the rain settled in again.

Debbie great to hear your weather is more bearable.

Miller wishing your sister a comfy stay in hospital while they run the tests and that she gets some good result AND answers.

Janice, my sister is more settled now. My daughter drove across town to visit her yesterday & says she is looking much more contented. Hopefully they will keep her at this place for all the tests AND she will stay put until they are done.

Little Hudson woke me at 3.30 this morning (the little brat) and now he has had a pee & a feed he is sleeping. Guess who will be having a nap later today

Kathryne, I have been in your shoes. No REALLY! I found I needed to be pro-active, with my DH, almost on a daily basis. He did great once he got to the 'last' rehab place. Hopefully your DH will embrace his healing & do his rehab work. PLEASE remember to take VERY special care of your self, during this stressful time. Especially eating vibrant, health, energizing foods. It is THE main thing that helped me get through all the stress. There will be time for cake etc.. later, when he is celebrating. It takes the human body ALLOT of nutrition to get through big stress, I promise you, I KNOW what you are going through!

emoticon 6-21-16 I have 'sisters' not by birth, but my choice, coming to visit this week! 15 people total. We are going to have a blast, even though the temps are 111! They are going to 1 of my Zumba classes! emoticon Happy, healthy, summer to all of SP land! I love & appreciate you, so very much!!!!! emoticon emoticon




With 2 of the "sisters' at my 'niece' wedding last summer!

Today's positive quote-Some days I eat salad and work out, some days I hang out in my PJ's and eat cupcakes, it's called balance. Don't stress so much if you have an extra treat every thing balances out if you just get your eating back on track right away. Yesterday they sent hubby to a less intense rehab place and it was stressful for the two of us. We just got use to the other place when we had to move. Oh well this place is even closer to me and I could if need be walk there. We got a great review of the place from the guy who shares the room and his wife. So every thing will work out alright. He will be there about 2 months or more or less. Hoping for the less. He is getting more use of his right side. I am going to have him try feeding himself today.

Happy Tuesday!

The heat and most importantly, the humidity broke!! It was so nice out yesterday. 75 and sunny. Father's Day was a hot one. 90 and humid. I got out for a walk yesterday. Will do the same today. Heading out in a bit. Yesterday, we did a lot of walking. Got in lots of steps.

Here's to a great OP day!

Miller, Praying all goes well for your sister today!! Keep us posted!!!

I have my Primary doctor visit today. I have to let him know about this blood I keep getting in my mouth. It just appears for no reason?? He will probably just recommend me to see a dentist. I hope it stops!!

Good seeing our son last night for a little bit. He brought me home all my "Life Cell" goodies from his work. Got myself a new Mask, body butter, lip, hand and face lotion!!!! Trying to keep his mom "Young"!!!!

Hope everyone enjoys their Day!!!!

Sharyn, the photo of your little family is adorable. I love that they're all watching the world together - they look so companionable. Thanks for your prayers and good wishes for my sister.


Janice (In) - glad you got some rain.


Janice (FL) - thanks for asking about my sister - and for your prayers. They're keeping her overnight in the hospital so they can do the bronchoscopy tomorrow morning. They're also trying to get her blood pressure stabilized. It was so high that they had her on an intravenous drip with blood pressure meds in it, but they're trying to successfully transition her to high blood pressure pills. I feel so sorry for her because she's thinking the worst. I hope the test will show everything is fine.

Janice, what a great photo of your son and hubby!!!


Annette, I wish you all the best at the court hearing. I hope you get the clarity you need. Since you're the only parents she's known, it would be good if she could stay with you permanently - especially if her birth-mom isn't able to take care of her.


____________

I'm worried about my eldest sister. She had to go to the ER last night because she was coughing up blood. She's bleeding from one lung. They're going to do a bronchoscope later today. I hope it's something simple and she'll be able to go home. She's very frightened of hospitals and has always feared getting really sick. I'm praying that she'll feel peace and comfort even in the midst of this scary situation. Any prayers for her would be appreciated very much.

Miller emoticon

The best we can hope for at this juncture is to get some clarity. I hate living in a fog about something as important as this child. The longer she's with us...the more we all bond to each other. She came to us at 11 days old from NICU...so we are the only parents she's ever known. I would rather they take her from us soon...before she is cognizant of us...as apposed to when she's a little older and has to deal with separation issues from us. That way, only hubby and I will hurt...not baby.

INDORTY...you are right about having all the supports in place...but it's still up to the person to use it. I keep going back to the fact that "everyone is rowing their own boat" with regards to health.

FLOSUN...I think the baby has turned a corner. Still coughing but smiling and laughing lots yesterday. I, on the other hand, am still a few days behind her in recovery. Head feels like it's in a bubble. Can't smell, taste or hear very much...which could be a good thing. Hubby spent Father's Day being our nurse.
We are psyching up for this Wednesday....it will be the first court hearing we have attended with regards to baby. We decided that it's the only way we can learn anything. At the moment we are being kept totally in the dark. We are even having difficulties getting any questions answered. Very frustrating. Even if it is adjourned yet again...for the 6th time...we will glean something. Even if it is info on what exactly Social Services is trying to do for baby with regards to sending her to live with her mom...or stay with us. We about ready to make an appointment with the Director of social services. If we are still in the dark after baby has been in our care for 6 months, we will take our questions up the food chain.

Today's positive quote-The same voice that says "give up" can be trained to say " keep going"
Am doing good on my diet. Having some thing cooking in the crock pot for dinner when I come home helps. Tonight in honor of Father's every where it is BBQ chicken wings. I am having that with an ear of corn. Taking hubby Panda Express for lunch. I am just getting a bowl to share, will even share an egg roll. Hubby is just not eating good. I know he needs to lose weight I just don't think this is the right way.

Janice so good to see your smiling post this morning put a smile on my face, warmed my heart

She thought she could so she did, every other day fasting

Today's positive quote-It's not a race, it's a journey. Went up town to the library this morning and then to the hospital to hang out with hubby. Today I got smart and climbed in bed with hubby and we took a nap together. Was not so wore out when I got home. I had a nice dinner waiting for me in the crock pot, cauliflower and a half breast of chicken cooked in green enchilada sauce. It is a fasting day and I am doing good. Walked 3.20 miles in my walks and got a reward from Spark People for doing 2000 minutes this month and boy do my feet feel it.

emoticon Hi team, sorry I haven't posted in a few days.


Sharyn, I'm so sorry about your sister. It really sounds like things are precarious for her with her conditions - does she use a walker or rollator? And does she have a medical alert that she can push when she falls? I'll say a prayer for her.
emoticon


Annette, I'm sorry the baby had to go to the ER, but I think you were wise - better safe than sorry. I hope the recovery is swift.
emoticon


Janice, I hope you have a great time with your son on his visit!! Also, it's exciting that your daughter and grandson will come later on - I know you're looking forward to all the visits!!!
emoticon emoticon


Nola, sorry you haven't been getting much sleep - sounds exhausting! I hope you get a better night's rest tonight.
emoticon


Janice (IN), I like wash-and-wear clothing, too - that's the only way to go for me!!!
emoticon


Kathryn, I'm sorry you're not sleeping well. I hope your DH will get better each day and can soon go home with you.
emoticon

I haven't slept well the last two nights, as I've been sleeping in a chair. I was lying in bed reading a few nights ago and I saw a centipede crawling on my covers and coming straight for my face. I was horrified!!! It was over two inches long and had SO many legs!!! I flung the covers to the side and it landed on the floor - then I jumped up (screaming!!!!!) and worked very hard to kill it. It was SO fast, but I finally got it. The exterminators had just come for their regular maintenance visit last Monday, but I called them again and told them they had to come back.

We never had bug problems until we bought this house. Our neighbor's land is higher than ours and all the rainwater runs off their yard and across our yard and under our house. We had to have an expensive drain system put in years ago and a sump pump. We used to have a terrible problem with earwigs because of the water standing under the house - and now a centipede in my bed!!! I'm not generally too scared of bugs, but I can't stand to think of all those legs crawling on my face when I'm asleep.
emoticon emoticon

PS - Randy comes home from China tonight around midnight. emoticon

Annette my sister has a neurological disorder called Essential Tremor plus Dystonia in several joints. On top of all this she developed Parkinson's - all before she was 50. She almost 60 now & extremely unstable in her walking. AND to make matters worse she is very stubborn in all matters medical, which is why she checked herself out of hospital so early after the last fall a few weeks ago. I have her little dog here with me.
Wishing your sweet Baby well & that the virus passes by quickly & easily for her.

Nola, I am sorry to hear about your restless nights. Hopefully the fur babies will settle tonight & allow to get a good sleep.

Janice, the only emoticons that work on SP are their own for the threads. none work on the team front page. WOW what a mess that syrup must have made.

I woke feeling a little stiff this morning but I still feel not so tired as I have been the past week.

have a wonderful weekend everyone

I have't been able to sleep the past few nights. I have 4 dogs and a cat. The cat had been meowing loudly nearly all night for two nights. Then big dog is on a steroid and it makes her have to go out more often than usual. Also, two of the small dogs are scardy dogs when it is going to rain (sometimes 1/2 hour before it even gets here) and they dance on me and wake me up. Last night I woke at about 1:30am when one of the small dogs wanted on the bed. Then about 2:30a big dog wanted to go outside and one of the little dogs did too, so I had to get up and let them out. About 5:30-6:00am, big dog and medium dog wanted out so I got up again and let them out and went back to bed. I woke at 9:45am. Whew...that was a good sleep!! Now I am playing catchup!! LOL

I see what I do on my iPad doesn't always transfer to the computer. I will see if we have the same emoji's

Janice-- Enjoy your visit with your son. Also enjoy when your daughter and grandson gets there. I know that you will.

Sharyn -- sorry to hear about your sister's fall. Maybe she will stay put for a little longer and get stronger so she can go home without the worry of falling again. Hope she get well soon.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

A funny things happened to me this morning at the restaurant where I eat breakfast on the weekend. I was done with my eggs and sausage and was reading the paper. In the next booth the girl was cleaning up and dropped the syrup holder. It splashed and I got some syrup on my top. They were worried and I told Kim that some spray & wash would get it out when I washed it. No problem. I don't buy anything unless I can wash it, no dry cleaning for me!!
