Default Weekly Chat/ May 8-14th

I'll try and make it back more often. My life has gotten crazy/busy. My fingers are all better (except the blister I now have---but I'm able to type). I braved the scale a couple times and it said 151 so I'm thrilled about that. I've got to work on getting water and exercise in...but I'm counting all the "unsual" walking I've been doing lately as a start I've done more walking the past few days than I have been doing--to me that's exercise. Now to just keep it up!
Babysteps Hi everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend!

I second that! I have such a hard time keeping up, seems like if I miss one day I'm totally lost LOL

THings here are OK, but after the woosh fairy visit I'm stalled out again. I dunno what's up w/my body, but I know for sure that if I stick to it, the #'s will come off eventually. Meanwhile, it's not like I'm starving or anything LOL

Have a good week everyone!@

Tenn

Morning Ladies:

Brenda - glad the fingers are healing! That just sounded awful!

Tenn - That little fairy never really made it to house. but anything coming off helps. Check your measurements.. bet you'll see it there!

Susan - This should be the first day of no bad house guest! Let us know.. Hope you smudged your house.

Ok, I must share my yummy dinner last night. I took an eggplant and sliced them into 1 inch slices. Rubbed them with olive oil and fresh crushed garlic, salt and pepper. I put them on the BBQ grill, and right before they were done, I put a slice of tomato, and a slice of pepper jack cheese, closed the lid and took them off just as the cheese was melted. Goodness it was delicious!

I have cut out all artificial sweetners, and was trying to get Andy to do the same.. but we really liked our rum and cokes. I had only been having rum over ice instead of the cokes, but wanted something different. I went looking up recipes and found this:

Rum Rickey

1/2 of a lime juiced
1 1/2 oz of rum (or as we call it - 2 fingers)
club soda
ICE

We used seltzer water since it's naturally carbonated water rather than club which has soda added to it.. and holy cow -- it was delicious! I am so hooked.. and I don't have to take in the artificial stuff, and can still have my vanilla rum!

So I thought I would share for those who like the occational cocktail!

Nothing going on here. Just pissed off at the doc I took Moose to. She kept trying to tell me he was fine. She said that public school kids pick up something every 2 weeks, and it's normal for them to be sick 5 months out of the year. Then when I told her he was schooled at home, she changed her tune and tried to make it sound like it was due to isolation. He is NOT isolated in any fashion. He plays baseball twice a week, irish dance once a week, library 2 times a week, homeschooling group once a week! Shesh.. anyhow, she charges me $150 to tell me to give him Motrin for the headaches. He has had headaches 4 times a week, dizziness, nausea, low and high grade fevers (2 weeks out of a month for 6 months) and she tells me this is normal. *sigh*

So I get him home, and not 2 hours later he has a fever of 100.7 -- I could have driven back to her office and given her a once over. I want my $150 back! Ok, off my box.. but when you know somethings wrong, and someone tells you it's in your head, you just feel like kicking their ***! This is not normal, and it's the most he's been sick in 9 years. I'll be taking him to Children's hospital in Denver if things aren't different this morning.

Have a great day ladies. Off for some Yoga!

Falon: As I was reading your post I thought Children's Hospital. Glad to see one is close enough to you to go. I hope they figure out what is wrong and can get him feeling better. BTW we homeschool too.
Tenn and Brenda: You will see that scale move again soon. Mine goes down, fluctuates up and then drops dramatically. Mine hasn't done it's next drop, but really looking forward to a day or 2 of many pounds gone.
Woke up this morning to a phone call. Dh's great uncle (91) passed away last night. Lived a very full life. So another crazy, busy week.

Morning ladies!

The houseguest actually left Friday around 5:30. It was a totally lovely weekend. I can run around the house in my underwear and use the computer whenever I feel like it. We can make out with the bedroom door open too.

I had weird dreams last night and didn't sleep really well. So I'm yawning today.

Hello everyone,
Thought i would join in since its been a while. We finally got all the tests matthew, my son needed done. He's been really brave. The Artiogram was the scarriest for him though. All the silent tears before the test was very heart breaking..... He gets really quiet when he's worried about something. The doctor and nurse's were really good with him though... After it was over he was all jokes and smiles about it. He was born on April Fools Day, so i call him my little jokester...... We go to see the Neurosurgen on the 16th to get all the results. Still, most likely brain surgery, since it is the only 100% fix. Radation takes 2 years and you possibly could have a bleed within that time which could mean stroke or death. Which that is what we are dealing with now. I have been spending a lot of time on the net reserching everything about AVM's i can find. Some are very scary to read but, i am finding a lot of questions i can ask the surgeon about. We are still so worried, living day to day praying for the best. Hope everyone is doing good.
Candy

Default Monday....

Lady Adnerb: It is that time of year isn't it! I'm glad to see your doing better! If your interested in walking and counting we are doing a little challenge on step counting. See (It worked for me on this board)

Tenn: I like the positive outlook. Do what you can and keep going!

Falon: That eggplant does sound yummy!!

Ciarra: I wish you peace and smooth sailing in this week.

Hockey: Sorry your so tired maybe it was because you missed him so...hehehe okay, maybe it was the giddiness about him being gone!

I had a great weekend!
I went to our church picnic and took fresh fruit and a sugar free pudding concoktion (sp). We had a great time!
My kids were BOTH gone Saturday so we (DH &I) went out and had steak and grilled veggies. YUMMY!! People are starting to ask me questions. It's starting to show that I have been working on this. I've decided that I like that. I will only tell you that we too enjoyed the house all to ourselves!

I love you guys!
See ya thinner!!

Hi everyone, I am recuperating nicely and feel so much better. First post-op visit tomorrow and I'm sure it will go fine. Took steri-strips off yesterday and now trying to figure out how to get all the ugly tape marks off my tummy. My husband has been working a lot of over-time so it's very quiet at my house. Saw my 2 yr. old grandson yesterday and he's so adorable. Expecting next grandbaby (a boy) around June 8th. Hope everyone else is doing great. Candy, very sorry to hear about all the scary things you and your son are going through. My daughter had heart surgery when she was 8 yrs. old and I was terrified. She is healthy now and I praise God for that. Falon, be persistent and find out what's wrong with your son, that is not normal symptoms. Sometimes doctors can be so dumb and patronizing. When I first broke out in a rash all over my body, my doctor sent me to a Dermatologist who diagnosed me with Poison Ivy and acted like I was dumb for bothering to come see him. Turns out, I had Liver Failure and this was my immune system causing the rash. I griped at that specialist office and never got a bill from him. Susan, glad to hear you got back control of your home, I know how great that feels. Good luck and well wishes to everyone.

Hey everyone. I'm still here, just really BLAH. I don't know what is wrong with me. I'm keeping up with everyone, just not posting. I'll be back soon. Staying on plan and am still losing inches...was late for Curves today so I didn't get measured, but I will tomorrow.

Sending you all a talk to you soon.

Things got busy and I'm behind on a lot of stuff. So no time to get personals done today (sorry!!!!). No water or exercise. But eating was OP. So I consider it a good day

Morning ladies:

Sounds like everyones doing pretty good. I am down another pound this moring so I took it. I think I still have a chance to get closer to my goal before vacation. <crossing fingers>

So yesterday Moose awoke with a headache, but seemed fine later on in the afternoon. I decided to let him go to baseball practice. All seemed fine while there, but when we get home.. he is nearly in tears. His head hurts, his chest hurts, and he's complaining of a lightening bolt sensations at the base of his skull. I gave him Motrin (like that good doctor said -- hmph!) went to bed, and he woke me up a few hours later to tell me it didn't work. I am keeping a very detailed list of everyday to take to children's hospital when I take him there. I'll be calling this week to see if they can check him out. I am just at my wits end. *sigh* Ok, just needed to vent.. There's nothing worse that your little man being in misery and no one willing to really take the time to find out what's wrong.

Alright -- Off to do some Yoga, and go to the library, so long as Moose is feeling up to it.

That is scary, Falon, I wouldn't wait. Call and call and call until you get someone to pay attention to you. It sounds like something serious. Let us know what happens. I'm worried for your little guy. It doesn't sound good.

Falon, I'd be going to the emergency room -- I know it's not close to you, but I don't think I'd wait.

Falon: There's a teen girl I know that's going through the same thing. Monster headache. And the doc really isn't sure what's going on. They're leaning towards a sinus infection. But waiting on the results. I know you don't want to seem like a paranoid mom...but moms DO know when something's not right. Go with your instinct (even if it's a sinus problem, kids/adults shouldn't be in that type of pain)!! Let us know how things are going!!

Susan:

Only a little water yesterday and more walking (for Girl Scouts). I'm not detail oriented on that stuff enough to count what I've done. I know I was walking steady for about an hour. I can tell because my legs and feet ACHE! The kind of ache that says "hey silly! You need a new pair of SHOES for walking!" Then again, the ache doesn't go away after sleeping (like it used to) so maybe there's more to it. Well, I'm off to start the day. Might actually get some wash done (being able to stay home for a while for once!!)!! The girls'll be happy. lol

Falon... I agree.... DON"T WAIT.... Take him to the Emergency Room. Don't let anyone tell you this is normal.... IT"S NOT....When my son had his first seizure 4-22-06 a few weeks ago it scared me. I knew my son, and this was not right... He was at his dad's for the weekend when it happened. I wanted him home as soon as thay could get here to take him to the ER. His dad and stepmom was telling me it was normal for a 15 year old to have seizures. I told them... What they think and What i think is two different things and i wanted him home.. If they wasn't going to bring him, then i was coming to get him. Long story short... Please DON"T WAIT... The Lighting bolt feeling is not right.... I would tell the ER of his pains and how long he has been having them....I would even get a cat scan to rule out everything there.... I don't want to scare you but, if i would have listen to my son's dad we would'nt know what we know now.... By going with my instincts I feel i saved my sons life....That reminds me of what the ER doctor ask my son...He ask matt if he had a girlfriend... Matt said no.... and the doc told him...Good because no one will ever love you like your Mom.... I find that sooooo true... keep us updated... I am praying for everything to be ok
