Three Steps Forward Nine back!!

Monday, November 15, 2010

Living on a very fixed income has made getting to Fitness Club on a regular basis very very difficult. Home exercises are difficult too due to physical limitations. Initially I lost 7 pounds but due to lack of regular exercise on machines I am back at my starting weight.
Just found a local SP group so am hoping to develop a buddy group to walk and/or work out with. Hopefully this will haqppen as I so hate to exercise/walk alone!

Had a family emergency yesterday (Sunday) My daughter called in a panic and told me that her four year old son took an ax to his 3 YO sisters foot!! Needless to say we used what gas we had to rush to the emergency room. The doctor who stitched up her foot said "Just a little more force to the ax would have severed her foot completly off!! I think my daughter and I must have smoked a pack of ciggs in a matter of two hours!
11/15/10 My daughter says my granddaughter is doing ok. She says her foot hurts; poor baby, and her mother gives her childrens' Ibuprophen for the swelling and pain, Tori (my granddaughter) says her foot is to painful for her to try to walk so she must be transported in a seated walker. Of course this is hard on my daughter as she has pulmonary Arterial Hypertension; http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/
This fatal disease leaves her often gasping for breath but despite all her limitations she manages it all with a smile---sometimes her smile is more a grimace though.
