Another beautiful page Ellen. God sends me angels to warcg over me and be held in his comforting arms. How are things with you. You have so much on your plate but rember God does not give you crosses you cannot handle. I hope you stayed home today. When Tom gets here I am having him take Russ to the ortopedic clinic as there is something wrong with his legs besides being 87 next month. My eye is bothering me but I can stand it. Boston is in for a blizzard. Marie says a foot of snow. What about your area? We are supposed to get thunderstorms. How are you holding up. I wish I lived near to help.Keep me posted. You are such a good friend to us all. A GREAT BIG HUG. Reed
Geez Lots - What part of "Be Well" do you not understand??? I leave you alone for 20 minutes (ok maybe it was a couple days) and now you're dealing with lumpy livers and supersized spleens?? Maybe you got bored with that 8 minutes you were feeling good last month... when was it? I think it was a Tuesday, I marked my calendar but don't have it with me here. If I could see anything, I'd shoot you a dirty look! Na, you don't need more crap from me... even if it is easily accessible. Good for Chris and the double flower find, although I'm never quite sure how to 'take' the gift of a 'pansy' anymore. I guess it has to be better than one of them nasty sturtiums. History has taught me that when I'm too sick to tolerate the test, maybe I need some help. That happened when I first learned about my diabetes. They wanted to do some kind of 'sugar tolerance' test but it was considered too risky on my already extremely high BG rates. So they let me lie down on a nice hospital bed instead. I thought I had died and gone to heaven, but alas, alack, the truth was soon to come! So next time they tell you to ditch the meds you NEED, maybe let them know you're going to maybe die en route to the test?? You are so like my hubby. He was laying in emerg with an IV in his hand. He had asked them not to put it in his hand (we both knew his veins were too difficult to 'hit') but they did and when I got back to him (from fighting with ER to let me in) his hand was the size of a small watermelon. He was just lying there and said 'I told them it wouldn't work'. Does he have to die to prove his point? I told him his head stone is going to read "I told them not to give me penicillin"... just not why (as in his highly allergic reaction would kill him). Learn to SPEAK UP girl! YOU are important to us - to Chris, Jesse, Zen and everyone back in Michigan... and that's just the few I know about! Please don't let the nice 'medical professionals' mess it up for you! I'm sure we're quite capable of doing that on our own! Nuff said... probably way too much. But it's hard to be clever when I'm up to my furrowed brow in worry! I hope you had a quiet day today while the docs mull over how to make you well. We are all here for you... waiting... praying.... hoping.
Hey there dear lots!!! Home from work, and dropping by to say hello!! Anything new? Doing the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children tonight! I'm tired, BUT....I did commit! So....suck it up Linda!! Was toying with staying home, but we're getting the kids ready for their First Reconciliation! hugs hugs hugs hugs!
Lots- Constantly thinking and praying for you about this new medical info. I certainly hope what the docs found isn't serious. You have had so many problems this past year you don't nee any more. I will keep in touch. Cat
Hello Ellen. OMG you haqve problems. I am so sorry. You MUST keep on TOP of everything. I have been hit with a sinus attack or an allergy attack. It has hit my right eye pulsating and the inside of my nose very dry. The pollen is very high here. Was a nice sunny day. I did not leave the house...thought I was having a stroke our mind does crazy things. Maybe it was writing a check for $2200 for my Homeowners Insurance. A $831 increase. Feeling a little better tonight. TOPS tomorrow. Please take good care of yourself and make sure you follow up on everything. A BIG HUG. Reed
Ellen...I'm back from work, and read the comment on Reed's page. What's the next step? Have you made an appointment to talk with your doctor?? Please touch base with me. Love and baskets of hugs.....linda ♥
Hello Ellen. Reading the account of your day had me exhausted. It sounded terrifying. And you hit the gift store too. I was having a good day untl late this afternoon got a strange ache in one side of my head and my face felt funny...stroke I thought but I was able to do the 3 steps. Going to watch Antique Roadshow from Boston. I hope they do furniture tonight as 80% of my furniture is Early American pine, My oldest piece is 1702. Russ is doing much better. His legs not good that is old age. He will be 87 in March. In the 40's today. Stayed home today doing odds and ends. I hope soon you get answers to your problems. Have a good evening. BIG HUG,Reed
I'm back. Just saw your message on my page. I sent the cards to everyone I could think of. Esther's mom said "noboody sends a card with just a picture of themselves on it". I told her I did it to celebrate the fact that I'm still alive. That shut her up. I decided to order the American Girl outfit rather than go to the store. I haven't seen her for several weeks as she has a busy schedule and in some type of competitive swimming team that practices 3x per week. She is growing her hair long to donate to Locks for Love. A lot of kids in her school are doing it. My skin has healed nicely. Dang that itch was SO bad, especially right before bed. Go figure. Looks like I'll be on the blood thinners for a time, unless the irregular heartbeat goes away.
Even though the fatigue has improved, the zoloft is making me feel spacey and ungrounded, plus I have these very vivid dreams - some scarey and some just baffling. I woiuld stop taking it on my own but don't want to give my new shrink the idea that I'm uncooperative.
I see him in 10 days.
