Inner tenacity
Sunday, October 30, 2011      4 comments

This week happened so differently that what I planned. I had vision of starting a new exercise routine, getting the house in order etc. I've hardly spent time at home. I realized today that I've been on the go so much that I've missed two day... Read more
New Bump...
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      3 comments

Was up all night with my mum in the hospital for what was found to be two kidney stones. She'd cut back on home health help for my father, because she was feeling better after her back operation. So last night was making calls to get him someo... Read more
Bumps in the road
Saturday, October 22, 2011      4 comments

So got a call Thursday that my work will not be accepting me back at the level the doc stated I could do (part time). My leave has been extended another six weeks. My mind is split about this. On one hand, I'm thrilled that I will have time t... Read more

Its been rolling fast. Sunday: Sang in choir at church, did doorbelling (good walking) for candidate I'm backing for the Nov. 8 election, had lunch out with hubby, went to UPick farm and got raspberries, squash, green beans, and greens all for... Read more
What do I put in my mouth?
Friday, October 14, 2011      4 comments

When I first joined the vegetarian group on Spark, it was as a personal challenge to see if I could eat without anything animal for a seven week period. It wasn't about animal cruelty, but it was about life awareness. To be completely aware an... Read more
Low iron
Thursday, October 13, 2011      3 comments

For someone that has hemochromatosis, this is just ironic. I have low iron. The last time this happened it was because I had too many phlebotomies in a row, attempting to get down my body iron levels. This time I've not been doing phlebotomie... Read more
On hold

First the good news. I've been watching carefully what goes in my mouth and I'm starting to go back down on the scales. It is really amazing how well logging works. I had another remicade infusion today. I made the appointment early and ... Read more
First hours in
Friday, October 07, 2011      4 comments

Went to CPR training this morning. I had to get there by 7am, so it was an early start. I did great planning, in that, I got up at 5:30 so I left plenty of time for a long hot shower, stretching, breakfast and time to walk around before sitti... Read more
Courage
Wednesday, October 05, 2011      3 comments

Last night not only got on the scales, but also got out the measuring tape and did the three minute heart rate recovery test. It took courage to do it, as I knew there was nothing wonderful in the mix. However, now I have a recorded point ... Read more
MTX restart
Tuesday, October 04, 2011      3 comments

It was a day of restarts. I restarted my methotrexate again after two weeks of being off. My plan is to weekly rotate back one day until I get back onto Friday being the day again. I delayed one day to give the antibiotic full power throu... Read more
Improvement!
Monday, October 03, 2011      3 comments

Stiffer than a board, but the salt water rinses are paying off. Also just one more day on the antibiotic - mouth is looking pretty darn good. On Saturday did four hours of strolling - nice relaxed walking, but enough by the end that I knew... Read more
Infection
Saturday, October 01, 2011      5 comments

This last week I had my first root canal to try to deal with an abscess on my gum. All went well with the procedure, but the abscess is not gone. It has spread to more areas in my mouth. In previous weeks I've seen this and just thought it wa... Read more
Got a walk in
Friday, September 23, 2011      4 comments

So got up. Picked up a friend and took flowers to my mom in the hospital today. It was a hard haul carrying flowers and walking the distance. Yet, I did it! As soon as I get to her room, the social worker says..."great you're here, we we... Read more
Give me that old time inflammation
Thursday, September 22, 2011      3 comments

I knew going in that this was going to be the week that challenged me. It did and the results are that I'm not even back to work yet and I'm failing. My ankles are so swollen it looks like I have heart disease. I have nodules on my hands,... Read more
Fine tuning of issues
Friday, September 16, 2011      4 comments

Saw my Rheumatologist today. Love her office scale it weighs too light by 5 lbs. Nice way to encourage your patients to allow you to weigh them. I noticed the nurse adjusted the correct number on her notes however. The doctor is pleased ... Read more
