I went to my eye doctor appointment this afternoon. I had 1/2 of a torn contact in my eye for over a week. It was up near the brow. It caused irritation and I am thrilled that he got it out.
Will have to put in eye drops; glad I am not hurting anymore.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

It is best to nip this in the bud. Don't know why it is so easy to gain and so
doggone hard to lose.

I am staying steady, but have to watch myself very closely...no cookies no
sugar...too easy to fall off the wagon.

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

I've gained back 3 pounds since August. I lost down to 5 under my goal weight, so I am still ok on the goal weight, but I don't want to inch up anymore. It is too darn hard to lose it. (and so easy to gain, especially with the holiday parties, covered dishes and treats).

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

thank you Cindy for the prayers. I believe they must be helping...he is still short
of breath but seems a little easier when he is sitting at least.

Davids' heart is back in rhythm, however the electrical shocks have his lungs

outraged, so we are going to see his lung specialist Monday to see what we can do

for him to ease his breathing. It is really rough...so he may have to sleep in the recliner

for a few days...sitting up is easier and his breathing is not so labored.

Thanks for thinking of him.

I wish I could say he is feeling better, but he stays in a state of exhaustion.
He is a warrior, so I know he will fight ..
But it is so painful to watch him struggle to do the simplest things.

Had a quiet day today. We really had a nice dinner at Western Sizzlin. Their
dressing was fantastic. Then we all came home and relaxed, had a nap altho
not at the same time.

David is not feeling well at all, being in A-fib is just exhausting, so for him it was
much easier to be one of the first there and eat and come home and rest.

Anniston....we went today to the dr. office, he was unhappy because he is
still in A-fib, and his pulse is 81. His defibrillator/pacemaker is supposed to
keep that at 70. We have to go back on Monday the 26th to get the thing
adjusted hopefully.

Dr. told us today he quit breathing and they got him started again and then
he had some difficulties which was why they kept him in the ICU for 2 and a
half hours.

Prayers appreciated. His Cardiologist is in Anniston....Thanks so much Cindy.

Not really thrilled about holiday....

David has to go back Monday to have his pacemaker/defibrillator adjusted
as he is still in A-fib. The dr. said he tried to quit breathing and that was concerning
during his procedure Wednesday.

Asking everyone to pray for him, for strength and health and for me as well...

Thanks for the Chia seed recipe. I will try it after I buy some chia seeds.

I made a gluten free mug cake tonight with 1/3 mashed banana, cocoa powder, Stevia, an egg white and a bit of baking powder. It was okay, I have to get used to the texture. But I have been at goal weight since mid-August, so I don't mind trying new recipes.

When I try to play with a recipe, it usually doesn't work for me, either. This time of year, the recipes are such a part of the family memories that I don't like to experiment.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I didn't know pudding wouldn't set up with almond milk either. Surprising,

but good to know.

I make Chia seeding pudding with Almond milk. I can send you my little recipe

for that if you like....

1/2 Cup Uns. Almond Milk
2 T. Chia Seeds
2 T. uncooked rolled oats
1 T. raisins(if desired)(I alternated between Gold raisins, or dried Cranberries)
Let sit for 10 minutes then stir in 2 T. Blueberries

PS: Sometimes I skipped the raising and put more Blueberries.

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

I bought sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding. I made it with almond milk. I did NOT know that it won't set up and thicken without real milk...It is slightly thick. Tastes fine, has few calories, but I have to get used to a more liquid texture. I did add a spoon of sugar free cool whip.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.
