Hi everybody,

Jean - I hope you are feeling better.

Ida - good luck with the throat tests.

Shari - good luck with the pain you are suffering - I hope the doctors can alleviate it.

Snuz - congrats on the opportunity for new and regular work.

Thanks everyone for the good wishes about the migraine. It is starting to lift, but it is still there. They usually last 2-3 days, so hopefully by tomorrow it will be gone - then I will just have the "drug hangover" from all the pain killers I take to get through work.

Hope everyone has a great day...debra

Ida I hope you are ok...please keep us posted!!!

Well, today is Daddy's CT scan to see where we are with his cancer. We won't get the results until the 13th - I hate waiting. but at least the test will be done.

Got my workout in this morning...I tell you - this little Spark Activity Tracker is the greatest little thing since sliced bread! I just LOVE it. I am exercising more because I love to see the stats go up!!!!

Hope you each have a peaceful day!

Debra...hope that your migraine is over and done with!!!!!

Ida do keep us posted on your throat and in the meantime I will hope for the best with you...these "waiting" days are "scary" if only our minds would leave our fears alone!

Sue, I am really glad that you took your brother up on his offer!! WE all know that you are going to be so much better off and not having to worry means so much to your health!!!!!

Mentally I am a lot better than yesterday but both of my feet are so swollen that it is getting close to my knees..probably from salt" although it has never been this bad! I just want to set with my feet up but I need to exercise for me as well as to stave off blood clots!

And because of my my new tracker I really really can't wait to!!! emoticon

I hope that each of you has a great weekend and it is all that you want it to be!!!!!

Thank you for the prayers Ida; I hope your throat test goes well.

Debra, right now I don't know what will help my neck pain; first I have to find out from the doctor what exactly is causing it. I did get the x-ray report, but haven't talked to any of my doctor's since then, and I can't tell from the report exactly what is going on.

Hello everybody,

It sounds like everyone's week is going pretty well.

Shari - I went to physio for my neck and shoulder pain - do you think that would help you? I'm so sorry to hear you're suffering with it. It is indeed frustrating. For a while I couldn't walk and carry a water bottle without being in excruciating pain. It's getting better, but it's a slow process.

Snuz - congrats on the extra day of work.

I don't remember everyone's updates, but it sounds like most of you are doing really well. I'm so glad to hear it. I am told that washing your mouth out with mouthwash immediately after drinking one of the barium/go-lightly drinks helps with the after taste.

I flew to Windsor on Monday for an arbitration case, and flew back on Tuesday night. Wednesday I woke up with a migraine and for the last 2 days I've been fighting it. It's frustrating because I cut out chocolate (about 9 weeks ago) and wine (about 2 weeks ago), and those are my usual triggers for migraine. So, I don't know what has caused it, but I'm struggling with pain meds and lots of water.

In any event, I don't want to complain, when there are so many other things that could be much worse.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day....debra

Good morning my friends!

Today is a blood work day for Daddy - I hope his platelets have come back up...they were low on Monday. Going to clean on the house today after we get back from the hospital - maybe declutter another cabinet.

Hope everyone has good day today!!!!

Thank you for asking Kathy. Neck pain is pretty much the same, but my right shoulder isn't hurting as bad from it today. I'm just frustrated not being able to do much, because activity makes it worse, but I have to be patient until I can see my pain specialist on Tuesday. I am hoping he can give me some injections to ease the pain, as well as having some answers as to what exactly is causing the pain.

Jean - good news about your husband! Glad you have some new glasses coming...I need some too, maybe next year I will get some. I'm sorry that you are going through such a rough time health wise. I'm so glad you are able to post to keep us updated

Sue you are right - I'm getting over 6000 steps a day right now - hope to increase to 10000 soon

Ida- you just keep that snow with you..I've got 50 degrees and I want to keep it that way!

Julie - how is that quilt coming along?

Shari - how is your neck today?

I got my workout in this morning - I absolutely love my new Spark Activity Tracker!!! Such an amazing little piece of motivation. I love making the lights light up and seeing the results on the computer!

Not much planned again today - have to take Daddy to the grocery store, but that's about it.

I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts today

big hugs

emoticon on your steps! Sue

Yesterday went fine. Now begins the waiting game as I will not know the results until next Tuesday! He did increase the area scanned so I do not know if this for precaution or he wants to see if the cells are moving...will know next week.

After the scan I went to our local Vision Center and had an eye exam!! When I got my NC license I realized that my glasses needed changing! So I have new glasses coming! Maybe this will help my computer typing! (LOL).

Mainly it is my bifocals but that come with our senior days! One eye is really getting better and the other worse for vision and and reading! There is no disease which to me is great news!!!!

I have a very interesting day planned today! My husband was diagnosed with Celiac Disease(CD) in 2000. He has been selected to participate in a clinical trial as follow up to see how well he has recovered from being GF for more than 10 years! So we are going to our first visit today! It really is neat that I am taking him for health care when he has made so many for me! The clinic that we are assigned to is about a 2 hour drive away! So it will be a long day but hey, he is worth it!

Hope each of you have a great day and all goes well with you! I will be back to a normal schedule beginning Thursday!

So far we got about 1 inch of snow & it is still snowing. I have a DR appointment in the morning so I hope it stops over night. Then I will go have my stud tiers changed.

I had to drink that stuff last month. They told me I could put some lemon juice into it. It did help a little. Didn't do much today kind of just goofed off

Jean, that barium drink is awful! They usually give us two different flavors to make it easier to drink.

I had a pretty good day starting with my workout. I got home late because I had to stop at Walgreens. Hubby had the chores done by the time I got home. I am going out to visit the sheep before I settle in for the evening. I am going to get my pink star quilt and work on the binding tonight.

Have a good evening and take care!

Jean, I will waiting with you to find out your results.
I don't like that barium stuff either; I always have a hard time getting it chugged down without getting nauseous.

I did my grocery shopping today; I went to our new Aldi store and it's very nice.

Nice weather today too; it got up to almost 60 today; that is warm for November in Michigan.

Tuesday update!

Well, today is the day that I have both dreaded and feared! I am up early even though I am fasting and drinking this Barium, ugh! I have to do 2 bottles while driving to the scan and that is a tall order!! I really would love my morning coffee! I can do it it and this is not the first time nor will it be the last!!! I just have to wait until Tuesday of next week for the results...you all may have to send me a board message to practice what I preach. I am trying and today's Blog reflects this!

I am still “fighting low blood” pressure...funny that this is a new problem for me and I have learned when if falls so fast (70-80/55) that it really zaps me...I believe it to be dehydration from fighting my sodium levels! O2 levels are holding well above 95% and that is great in fact I have been holding 98% on a regular basis!

I didn't want to complain so know that I am OK! I will think about you today and wish each of you well!

Thanks for taking this journey with me and for helping me to understand that it is OK to be human at least once and awhile!

I finally got outside and walked a mile! I walked 3.908 steps and it took about 20 minutes. I know it's not a lot, but much better than what I've been doing:)

Shari, I will check on it tomorrow when I go in to get my port flushed:)
Julie, have fun at the practice!

Jean, fortunately my family all have their own pets, but I couldn't leave the dust bunnies which were big enough to eat small children. Especially since some of my company were small children. Cleaning is not one of my passions.

We had a nice, but short visit. My niece gets worried about her children destroying my house, even though there is really anything they can hurt.

Well I am off to orchestra we have two rehearsals before our concert on 16 Nov.

Have a great evening!

I hope that is a good sign also, but I would still call and check on it. Glad you had a great birthday!

I had a nice time at my lunch out today, even though it wasn't such a good day with the pain.

Good luck with the ct scan and bloodwork. That reminded me that I had a chest xray and blood work done over a month ago, and I haven't heard anything about the results. I guess that is probably a good thing!

Good Monday Morning all!!!!

It a blood work day for Daddy - we will know soon if it is ok. He has a ct scheduled for Friday so we are anxious for that.

Got my workout in this morning. I have cut back a little to help me with the burnout I have been experiencing...I am still getting over an hour worked out and everything seems to be going well.

Not much planned for the day

Hoping you all have a peaceful day!

Good Morning all!

Julie, Have you ever noticed how little hair you see until that pesky in law comes, you know the one who thinks that "I don't dare sit on that sofa"....whoops! On the other hand I might at times and depending on who it is just remind folks that animals live in this house and it is their home!!!

Ida glad you are feeling better!

Shari, Hope you are some peace if not relief. I will carry you close in heart!

Here we go for another wek so hope that you have a great one!

Good afternoon!

I have this week off from chemo, not a lot planned since I am still dealing with the neck pain, but tomorrow I am meeting a group of ladies I use to work with for our monthly lunch out, and when I do my grocery shopping this week, I am going to check out our new Aldi store that just opened two weeks ago.

So far today I have gotten my house cleaned up, have family coming to visit and I needed to get rid of some dog hair. I think the hair reproduces it self. I have one dog and one cat but the hair seems worse then when I had 9 dogs (labradors).

Take care everyone!

thanks everyone!!!


New workout video completed...now on to the rest of the day...Did you remember to set your clocks back an hour – Daylight savings time ended at 2 am today

My cousin gave me a huge amount of clothes yesterday that her friend had given her. (the friend had weight loss surgery) They were too small for my cousin, but most of them fit me! (and the rest should fit soon)
As much as I enjoy becoming too small for my clothes, it is nice to have clothes that actually fit instead of hanging off of me. We took Daddy down with us to get the clothes so he could visit his sister – he had a great time. I love it when he has a good day!

I think it supposed to be cold here today in southern West Virginia, so we have plans to work inside the house, putting up more plastic weatherizing and doing some heavy duty house cleaning and organizing the new clothes! (even hubby got a new pair of jeans – not sure why the lady had men’s jeans but it’s a really nice pair and fits him perfectly)

Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday

Kathy, hope the clothes fit!

I had a nice day. I went shopping today with a friend. We went to two quilt stores. I bought the fabric I need to make my Christmas presents.

I have family coming to visit tomorrow so will need to do some cleaning in the morning.

Take care everyone!

Good morning! Boy, having that activity tracker is really making a difference! I find myself trying to be active just so I can log on here and see how much I did!
Kat that is fantastic about the clothes! Congratulations on the weight loss!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I got called into work today but we have planned this trip to San Francisco for awhile now, so I had to decline. I did work 3 days this week, instead of the one day I had scheduled:)
