2019 GRACE and Simplicity and Believe - I am a Wife, Momma, prayer warrior and 70 years old with at least 40 more pounds to lose ...Half our county calls me "Miss Linda" from my nursing and daycare work retiring in 2011...Happily married for 41+ years...Have a beautiful 38 yr old daughter that Married wonderful fella in 11/18. After a long trip to Alaska 3/18 I was able to reconnect with 39 yr old son...Time to keep healthier. I'm wanting to be a good example for famiy as well as healthy for life.
Intro to Sparks in 11/09; Health efforts escalated following two heart stentss on 5/23/14. Then 5/15 I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis and peripheral neuropathy and told to prepare for life in wheel chair. Dec 1 2015 I had 8.5 hr spinal and back reconstruction and fight to maintaintain mobility it and improve it further with weight loss. I am so thankful I am not in a wheelchair yet and not wearing adult diapers as first doctor predicted. I met my goal of walking a 5K with two canes 6/18/16. All that surgery and stress and aging resulted in some memory loss and slower thinking and speech. Last change in medical Dx was Oct 2017 told blood sugar #s define me as Pre-Diabetic so new battle to fight and way of eating to change again.
