I am back after being away, hope things work out that I can continue. How has everyone been? I have missed tou all.
Hot this morning in Tampa, we are to get some rain. Waiting on Doctor's office to call to schedule DH's complete abdominal ultrasound. It was to be today, I cancelled my hair appt, and haven't heard anything yet. UGH!! He hasn't been feeling well.
Have a great afternoon.
Marsha

hi, sorry for delay in getting back to you..my sister and DH do not have a PC..and believe me, even if they did, he would never use it, he is like my husband..they are left in the last century when it comes to the electrnic age. He is not making much of a recovery from the BP..mu sister said the DR thinks he will always have it to some extent..he is somewhat improved but not to what the Dr had hoped for.

I have missed out on welcoming each and everyone of you. A lot of times we forget to check to see who is new and believe me it is unintentional. I know you will like this group of caring people. Be sure to enter into chat above in the chat away forum. That is where we usually gather. Seems like there have been some health problems and I sympathize. I just graduated from Cardiac Rehab after having a double bypass in April. We seem to get through it. Again you'll find the gals care.
And again WELCOME!!
Hugs,
Lee

I hope to do some work on my friend's Wii. I used to be a member of Silver Sneakers but since my diagnosis my insurance company changed policy and are no longer paying for it. This was not cause and effect, but rather coincidence.

I need to get my food intake in control. But lately my husband and I have gotten interested in cooking and that is not always a healthy route.

BUt it is fun.

Hi,

Good luck on your journey. Any plans other than walking?

Stay strong,

I just joined SP and this team. I have been on yoyo diets my entire life. But I am now at my highest weight. I was diagnosed in December with Bullous Pemphigoid which is an autoimmune disease which attacks the basement layer of the skin. If you want to know more about this condition you can look it up at Mayoclinic.com.

The treatment for this is mega doses of Prednisone, which as you probably know, causes increases in weight. And being an eater anyway, my weight has really shot up. In addition my strength level has decreased.

I have just this week started a walking program every other day, but it is not easy. I bought The Spark and have started reading it. Now I have to focus on getting my eating habits back in order.

I am not sure what else say.

Oh yes, I live in Winchester, VA, am 71 years of age and originally I was raised in Brooklyn, NY.

Hope to hear from some of you.
