Explained to my 9 year old granddaughter about multiplying numbers. She added up all the days and the minutes she read and I taught her how to do it easier.

Twas "weigh-in" day, here at the Care Center........happy to say that I lost another 7#, for a grand total of 59# this year!! Yippy!!!!!

Never a dull moment at the Care Center - my crutches kept me upright for the last 7 years and now I'm re-learning how to use my legs and moving towards standing & walking. Oh Joy!

Am thinking I would love some of those "record temps" from March about now.....79 sounds much better than the triple digits that have been happening here lately!!

Despite the heat....I continue to march daily, so days it's only 100 steps...but there is a number on every day on the calendar and I'm past 240+ days in a row!!!!

Walk? No...that's something I do in my sleep. My walking consists of taking a couple steps and regaining my balance, then taking a couple more. But without my crutches I'd be sitting in a wheel chair with a whole set of new problems. So, I'll take what I can get.

My marching is done from my chair....slowly I'm getting more lift between foot and floor. Every day is a struggle - put I keep plugging along.

Doris - I have an incurable disease in my legs! Life has gone down-hill since 2004 and regaining mobility is just ONE of my hurdles!! Hmmmm...would life be boring if there were no challenges?!?!?!

I march to help the circulation in my legs...regaining some balance is just a small step forward in this battle!

Have been working on regaining some mobility....last week I increased my chair marching to 100 minimum steps and averaged 140.

This week I've averaged 170 and still have 1-1/2 days left! I'm working on slowing down the march & working on how high I lift my legs. Also working on squats when sitting - opposed to plopping downward. Huge workout for my knees...but have noticed that these baby steps are helping me regain my balance!

I needed to retrieve a package today that the mailman leaned against the hinge side of my outer door. I can't get outside, but resolved to try some "precision standing" and managed to dismantle my door...then moved the box to the other side. Put the door back together & got the pkg inside, only to find out that the ONE thing I truly needed will be coming in a different box!

Hoping the next retrieval goes easier, as this process took about 45 mins...

I've had an upper resperatory infection for about two weeks. It turned into a middle ear and sinus infection. Have felt weak, tired and lousy, but no coughing or other cold disconforts.

I lost my hearing for about 4 days, it is coming back slowly. I have my hearing aids turned up as high as they will go and sounds are distorted if I can hear them. Cannot hear TV, of normal talking. This should mend itself in time...

So what makes me proud of what I have done? Just getting through the day and getting any office, or moving works accomplished - and I did do some - everyday a bit more...Jackie

emoticon I agree. A little bit of something every day amounts up, over time. This has been a bad year, medically, for me. One more test & I'll be over it (hopefully). I was really getting down thiking how much we still had to do when I got to thinking about how much we've done even with all we've gone thru. It's just a matter of how you look at things, sometimes! emoticon

Learning, discovering and passing along bits and pieces of our day, just might help someone else on their healthy journey.


I have limited mobility, so it's taken me a couple weeks to transfer my sewing/quilting books from the bedroom shelves out to the shelves near my sewing machine. But old organizational habits kicked in and I finally got them in order and readily accessible when needed.

I think just pushing myself a bit every day has helped me feel better about myself. Even the simple things in life can seem overwhelming....but all I can do is continue to try.
