I got my computer out of the shop. I don't have time to post right now. I have lots to do to be ready for Thanksgiving.

Wayne got 18 stitches put in his thumb last night. Ripped it open at work on the back doors of his truck.

I hope everyone has a great,safe,fun & Happy Thanksgiving!!

Thanks for asking about me while I was out without a computer.

Love to all...

Sherry we miss you even when you are gone for a day. Ouch, 18 stitches in a wee little thumb. That's bad. Make sure he keeps it clean so he doesn't get an infection. I am glad that you are back. So I guess you must be cooking the big meal for Thanksgiveing. Who is coming to dinner?

Gayle poor little Sophie, I hope she has recovered. They do bounce back pretty quick.

Thank you all for the concern. I love you girls too. I will choice to do exercises that I think are easier on my heart. It is really hard to tell how fast my heart is beating unless I take it every five minutes. I am addicted to exercise as I am sure you all know by now. I think Shelley you are too, that is why I knew that you would understand. The waiting is hard because I don't even have a date for when I will be having the holter monitor on. After that they have to analyze it and then I will see my family doctor. If he finds something he doesn't like he will send it to my caridologist, then I have to wait to see him. With the holiday season approaching who know how long this will take.

Other health issues this week. I recieved my MRI results. After all that I went through last year with the surgeries I still have a herniated disk and scar tissue on the nerves. I don't know how I could have herniated another disk. I am scheduled for a epidural steroid injection on Dec 13th. Lets hope that this will work. The specialist said that he will do up to 3 times. They will not be able to do the dye xray because of my allergies but will do another type of xray that will be a little less accurate. Can you tell I am a little nervous about this? I could have gone next tuesday but Larry will be in Boston and I didn't want to go without him. The specialist said that the new leg brace that I got is not what he had perscribed. I will have to go get a new one made. Boy, oh boy.

I hope that you all have a wonderful thanksgiving and I will be popping in on you Shelley and visit with you Sherry while you tidy up. Gayle your turkey sounds yummy too, I am coming for seconds. Have a good one and post and let me know how you all are doing. We have a family christmas celebration on sunday and then my sister will be taking me back to her place til wednesday. I don't really want to be alone while Larry is gone. I will post before I leave.

Girls, please say extra prayers for Ramona's son Dan!!!! I received this late last night, I didn't check my email until this afternoon. I think the surgery was this morning by the time on the email.

I have just run home to shower and pack a bag. Daniel was in a roll over acident this morning and his back is broken in four places, broken ribs and collapsed lung. As of right now, he has no feeling from the waist down. Surgery is tommorrow morning. Please ask everyone you know to send up prayers that he will walk again.
Love,
Ramona

OMG Gayle what terrible news. Thanks for letting us know.
Prayers are sent to Dan and of course the family too. I will also light a prayer candle for him. Ramona I am sending a big hug your way. I know that this is going to be tough. I love you.

Oh my goodness...how awful! I will be saying prayers for healing for Dan...may the Lord hear all of our prayers for this young man! Please let us know if you get any more information on his condition.

Welcome back Sherry! I sure hope your hubby's thumb is feeling better! That must have been a nasty gash to need that many stitches!

Dee, maybe you could find a new exercise addiction that doesn't get your heart rate up so high...weights maybe? Please don't over do it though whatever you do!

Thanks for the advise Suzy. I am a little hesitant to do weights, I have had two back surgeries in the last year. I did do a few weights this week at the YMCA. I did weights until my surgeries but probably could do them again. I am going to easy into it though.

Gayle any more news?

Last night at dinner I got a call from the hospital. They had a holter monitor available for me today. So I am hooked up and waiting for something to excite me so my heart can record the racing. Larry has a few ideas but it all has to be documented. lol I will go to the gym tonight and see if I can get it up there.

Lots to do have a great day. Ramona I am thinking of you, your family and Dan. xox

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. I took some time this morning to count my many blessings. I get very discouraged at times with what life deals, but thru all the hardships, I really should be thankful for many things.

I haven't heard anything from Ramona, but I'm assuming she must be in the town were Dan is at? Hopefully she will check in here when she can. My heart aches that there is nothing I can do other then to pray alot.

Dee, maybe you should try to come to the States for some medical advice??? it seems like through all the surgeries and therapy, you still seem to have the same problem. Hopefully, the doctors can agree and you can FINALLY get the proper treatment you need and deserve.

Suzy, thanks for checking in here often. It's been slow around here for the past few weeks...some of our regulars have decided to go MIA.

Shelley, our turkey turned out nice with just a hint of orange citrus flavor...THANK YOU FOR THE SUGGESTION! How did your turkeys turn out?

Sher, I hope Wayne's thumb is better! OUCH! How did Wayne get to the hospital??? I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

Well, better close, I am exhausted from the day! It was very pleasant without any family disputes etc. Even the mentally disturbed SIL behaved!!! LOL!!!!

Gayle-Our turkeys turned out delicious as usual. I hate way too much--turkey, stuffing (mom made it fat free), broccoli, sweet potatoes (fat free, but with marshmallows), chocolate yumyum cake(fat free.) Although everything was fat free, it certainly wasn't calorie free. Tonight will be the big one with my brother and his family from New York.

Sherry-Ouch on Wayne's thumb.

I am so worried about Dan. I hope he is okay. After going to Irag and everything he has been through, I can't believe that he had this accident. It is so scarey out there on the roads for our children. Patty gets her license on Jan 13, and I am so scared.

Dee, I'm glad they found a monitor for you so quickly! Hopefully now the doctors will be able to get to the bottom of the problem and fix it!

Gayle, it's been a difficult year here as well. You're right though...even when things are bad there is still SO MUCH to be thankful for! Besides...if we didn't have the bad times the good times wouldn't mean near as much as they do!

Sherry, sounds like you had a wonderful dinner! I cut back on the fat in our meal too and sent the leftover peanut butter cream pie home with our oldest son...he can afford the extra calories!

Ramona, my prayers are continuing for Dan and the rest of your family as well!

Gayle I would go to the States for treatment but it would be out of our pocket. I am sure that it would be thousands of dollars. Hopefully we will find out if my heart is not behaving again. Darn I thought that it would know better by now.

Sherry will Wayne be able to work with his injured thumb? How did your Thanksgiving dinner turn out?

Suzy I am lucky that I got the monitor so quickly. I was expecting a month wait. Maybe it is what the doctor wrote on the order that sped it up.
How very true about what you said about not appreciated the good times unless you have been through some rough times.

Shelley I am sorry I didn't make it over for dinner, do you think you can send me some of that fat free dinner? It sounded really yummy.

Well I got the heart monitor off this morning. I will hear back in two weeks if there is anything wrong. My sister picked me up from the hospital and we went to my home town for a funeral for a father of a class mate. I hadn't seen some of the people in over 15 years. I felt that I looked great. Maybe even better than when I was in school. One of my friends said that I still looked as beautiful as when we dated. Another friend said that she recognized me by my big smile. Another guy and his wife said that I haven't changed abit. I felt good about myself.
After a long lunch and visit we stopped off at my mom and das's for a visit. My dad still looks good. He has had four weeks of radiation. I know that it is going to get worse but everyday in the beginning that he does well is one less day that he has to suffer.
So it has been a long day. I left the house before 9:00 to catch my bus and just got home at 4:00.

I hope that you all have a good weekend. Remember if you don't here from me for the next few days that I will be leaving sunday night after Larry's big family christmas party. I am off to Gail's til wednesday night.

Take care and prayers going out to you Ramona and family.

Dee, I am so happy you are feeling so good about yourself. You are a beautiful person on the inside and it radiated to the outside of your body. Since you had the surgery, I am sure you are positively glowing.
Radiation is so much easier now on a patient then say 10 years ago. Some patients only end up with a mild "flu like" reaction. This is what i'm hoping for your father. I hope he can get through the treatments without too much discomfort.

Shelley, YUMMMMM-YUMMMM!!!!! Can we come to your house next year????? I come from a bunch of hicks who believe fat, butter and frying are right up there. They think I am crazy because I prefer my food plain and not fried. So, needless to say, yesterday at the inlaws was not OP for me.

Suzy, how do you make your peanut butter pie? I know of two ways, one way is to mix the PB with the pudding and the other is just placing a layer of PB on the crust before adding the pudding. Is your similar? I feel guilty admitting this after Shelley posted her FAB FF menu, but here it goes! One of the traditions at the inlaws house is to have the meal, then a few hours later my MIL pulls out several pies to choose from. Almost everyone makes a mini meal out of pie!!! I'm talking like some of them eat 4-5 pieces!!! I'm not that bad, but yes I must admit, I had two pieces. :-)

Sher, where are you???

Prayers continue to be sent to dear Ramona & family. {{{HUGS}}}

Gayle, I probably shouldn't post this on a dieting board, because it really isn't diet food by any means , but it can be slimmed down...which is what I did for Thanksgiving.

Peanut Butter Cream Pie

1 - 9 ounce chocolate or graham cracker crust (can be reduced fat)

Combine:
1 - 8 ounce cream cheese, softened (can be lite or fat free)
1 - 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk (not much you can do about that )
3/4 cup peanut butter (can use the reduced fat)
3 tablespoons lemon juice (from concentrate okay)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cool whip (can use lite)

Beat cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, lemon juice and vanilla together until smooth and then gently fold in cool whip. Pour into crust and refrigerate. Drizzle 1 or 2 teaspoons chocolate syrup (Hershey's makes a lite syrup - only 50 calories for 2 tablespoons) on top of each slice before serving.

Even the slimmed down version is VERY rich...a tiny sliver of this pie goes a long way!


Dee, it sounds like you had quite a day! You must really be riding high after hearing such nice things from your old friends! That's wonderful...you should be proud of yourself!
I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing so well with his radiation. Maybe it won't get much worse for him...at least that's what I'll be hoping for!


Our son, daughter-in-law and the girls ate dinner with us tonight, so that took care of the leftovers. I know I ate more than I should have, but it's only a couple of meals, but a splurge every now and then isn't going to hurt anything...tomorrow I'll be right back on track again!

Suzy-Think they make ff condensed milk. You could probably use that.

Dee-I hope your results come back good. I'll be sending healing vibes your way.

Sherry-How is Wayne's thumb now?? How was your Thanksgiving?

Vicki-I wish I could come visit you! Didn't you say that it's somewhere near USF?

Gayle-Dear, don't feel guilty! I have been eating everything in sight, even if it's fat free or low fat. Last night was the other dinner at my mom's. I ate way too much corn bread!

I forgot how much I hate my SIL from NY. She made a comment that just made me so mad. My dad was saying how her son, who lives here in town, never comes to see him anymore. She brought up how the store we had 10 years ago always came first and they missed many important things because of it. I told her not to start this. She said why not? Anyway, I just can't stand her. It's always something. She has no right bringing up old stuff to my 82 year old dad. Come on. He won't be here that much longer. Can you tell I'm still seething over this?

Gotta go out and run this stress off!!
