Monday, May 07, 2018 3 comments
I had my court trial date today. I've been losing sleep over my traffic accident for 6 weeks now, and I got a call late Friday that they wanted a continuance (delay in court date). I gave up being at my favorite uncle's funeral (he died 3 weeks... Read more

I've been trying to be very disciplined with this keto, very low calorie, protein-sparing diet I'm trying out. My limits are strict: 850 calories, less than 20 total carbs, 85-90 grams protein, and less than 60 grams fat. This is my second week... Read more

I suppose things are different because I'm a 62 year-old woman. I slowly slipped as planned into eating LC. But after 3 weeks and no weight loss to speak of -- not even the initial rush of water loss, I decided to go VLCHF -- and with that de... Read more

Update: I've returned to regular exercise, including leading. Funny, but I have to take short "breathers" when someone else is leading, but I manage quite well when I'M doing the leading. The "breathers" are becoming shorter in duration --... Read more
Update on Pneumonia Recovery:
Saturday, March 10, 2018 2 comments
Physical status: much the same as last month -- only I don't "feel" the sputum in my lungs anymore. I am coughing much less. My lung capacity seems to have slipped a bit --either because I am no longer taking medicine or because I've stopped ... Read more

I've felt better and better, although my breathing capacity hasn't improved and I can still feel that last bit of leadenness (phlegm) in my right lung. I went to exercise Wed. and Friday and did okay. I can tell it has been so long since I've... Read more

I continue to work at erasing the effects of pneumonia (coughing up mucus and deep breathing to increase lung capacity). I almost feel normal. I've been missing my friends, so I went to Zumba yesterday. I repeated what I did last week -- the o... Read more

Yes, I set the bar low, but I did better than I expected! Oh, I have missed everyone! Bette has introduced totally new-to-me music and choreography in Zumba class so most of the time I couldn't keep up. I'm still suffering the lasting eff... Read more

Okay...so the doctor told me I could start acting normal. (LOL!) I've been seeing how much stamina I have left by going to the grocery stores and I also took my DD shopping. I can hold up on low activity stuff for about an hour. But on Sunday,... Read more
Is Ginger gonna die? Did I do it? I'm sick at heart.

I mentioned in my previous blog I stayed far from my pet while I knew I was sick with some respiratory problems because of birds' delicate respiratory systems. The doctors said I wasn't contagious on New Year's Day -- I still stayed far away. ... Read more
Doc says I'm not contagious -- but I gotta do the work of healing
Thursday, January 11, 2018 1 comments
...saw the doc. I am doing fine. He convinced me that there is no reason to fear that I am contagious, and showed me how to use the devices I had been given at the hospital. He thought I might heal quite a bit sooner than 6 months since I am ... Read more

Day before yesterday was a good day. I felt easier and deeper breathing. Yesterday was a bad day -- weaker, shallow breathing and a new pain in my lung. More coughing too. I was probably too active day before -- I went out (to see Star Wars) for... Read more
