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?
oh, I thought it was going to be something like a totally salt-free diet. We've been using a lot of ground turkey lately. I've decided in some things, like tacos and chili, I actually prefer it to beef. 10 oz is a lot, I thought so much protein was a stress on your kidneys. Reed has a place in my heart too. just sent you a pm.
hi Kathy, I forgot to thank you for the video. how are you doing? it sounds like you're managing fairly well from everything I read on the pages here. May I ask what additional food restrictions you've had to take on? just wondering. I can't believe it's April 1st and it's snowing here in northern NJ.
Hi Hon, I am doing fine now. The Laser was brutal...ugh. The Doc didnt wait long enough for the drops to numb and stuck that needle into my eye socket...pain! Then.....during the Laser I could feel way too much, he said I dont numb up well....Ha, need more drugs! So, it was a very painful ordeal. 487 zaps. Came home and rested and then I was a big lazy blob on Friday too :) Feel great today. My Mom was with me on Thurs. in spirit. Thanks hon, and how are you? do you feel ok? Hope you have a nice weekend. Love ya Sister :)
