Hi Kathy, thanks for telling me about Robyn, I remember those lasers even though I had mine 20-25 years ago. Hyacinth, heaven! Our daffodils finally bloomed - it's about time! We are having some friends over tonight and we're going to roll out the bbq and grill a skirt steak.
Good Morning,Kathy. Here I am again wishing you a good day and hoping you had a good night and that you are feeling fwell. Ice pellets? Don't the people in MN know it is Spring LOL. I had no electricity yesterday for 5 hours. I just read wrote letters it is good to be without the computer for a while. I am feeling so good I cannot stand it. Yu havea wonderful day. HUGS,Reed
Sweetie...thank you so much, you brought tears to my eyes. Today was not a good treatment. The injection to numb me hurt very bad....I do not numb enough, doctor said I have a very shallow socket, not enough tissue between eye and bone...tried to laser but I felt too much at such a high voltage, only made it to 287 zaps and he had to stop....will probably have to just have surgery and have all the clots/bleeding sucked out. Will find out in 6 weeks. Bruised badly and had to take vicoden and valium. Sat in the dark and rested....love you darlin and I cherish your kindness. xo
Good Morning,Kathy. Another good night. I am doing well and hope you are too. It seems Winter does not want to leave your area. Glad you did not put your Winter clothes away yet. I lost 1/4 pound at TOPS and am 4 pounds below goal. I looked at my calendar and nothing scheduled just going to relax and sit in the sun. Have a great day and take good care of yourseklf. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. I do not like Wed as I have to rush to get out of the ghouse for my TOPS meeting as my 34 lovely widows are waiting for me. I had a good night my readings are good and my knees are better. I hope I don;t lose as I am blow goal. I love your photos a nice mix of everything. I will try to put on the swans when Tom comes this weekend,. Take good care of yourself and have a good day. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. I had another good night and my BG readings very good. Seems strange to see me as a new member but hey it worked. We were supposed to have rain to break the heat wave n one yet. How are things with you? I hope real good and you are sleeping. TOPS tomorrow easy Program the 5 of us who attended the Convention will give our impressions. Have a great day. I care. Hugs,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. Was I ever upset when I went to MY PAGE and found it in a mess. I guess it happened to several people. I tried and tried and could not get it to work. So I re-joined. I lost everything but it is not right. Seems funny to see me as a new member. Lakeland was 101 degrees. The convention was good but long. The State Queen lost 113 pounds and the State King lost 98 pounds. It was very inspiring. Through all of life's troubles errors struggles NEVER EVER GIVE UP..PUSH ON. I was bad. On the way home we went oit of our way to stop aT Bette's A1A Cafe where I had a Fishermen's Platter haddock shrimp scallops and New England fried clams with bellies YUMMY> I spiked a bit but worth it. How are you doing? I hope well. You sleeping better? I hope so. I am. I am feeling better than I deserve. Have a great day. HUGS,Reed
I don't know if music is that powerful. But I do think it happens. My son graduated high school with a young woman who went to college for music therapy. i talk to her every once in a while and she says that music is the second most powerful brain motivator. She says hot bread is the number 1 most powerful. She also says she has seen remarkable transformations of stroke patients using music, but like the movie it has to be their music. I think we put a sound track in our brain between 12 and 20 and that sound track goes with us forever. Even when we lose everything else. My mom before she passed was singing dont let the sun get in your eyes. One of the hits form 1952, I had never heard her sing that song ever. So she had an electrolyte imbalance and thought she was seeing her her grandmother in the room, and she was singing a dont let the sun get in your eyes. SO yeah, I do think there is a sound track in our lives.
Kathy, the blog is just wonderful. I got a little choked up actually. It just made me feel so proud to be a member of this community. I hope you're having a good day, do you go to dialysis on the same days of the week every week? are you by yourself when you get it, I was just wondering. It's my greatest fear too, I want to know what it's like, and then again, I don't.
I know what you mean about the food coloring. those orchids remind me of my "blue" quilt I'm working on now. We are also getting rain and thunder here in NJ. Say, I know you're a movie buff, I'm looking forward to seeing "Water for Elephants" - I read the book last year and could not put it down - have you read it?
