Jan - so sorry to hear about your brother. As much as you know he's no longer suffering, it's still hard to deal with the loss. I remember going through this with my day - he passed away from cancer in October 2009 - it's still hard to deal with.

Shari - I hope you're feeling better and that you got a good night's sleep.

Julie - I wish you and your mom well.

Good morning to everyone - hope you all have a great day...debra

Julie, I'm sorry your mom got turned down. It really is always the ones that need it the most can't get it!

Jean and Shari - I'm glad you both got some good sleep!


Hello and Good Morning to everyone else!!!

I got my workout in insanely early this morning – 3am is just too early – but it’s done. I will probably take another short walk later.

Nothing planned today except maybe a little house cleaning…I’ve been letting it go for a couple of days and need to get back into it!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Julie, unbelievable! The one's that really need it get denied, and so many others that may not really need it, have it. I say this from experience with being and in-home provider awhile back. One of my "clients" wanted me to come over for an hour, claim 3.5 hours, which she was approved for, and then give her the difference for the other 2.5 hours, I couldn't believe she would even ask me to do that. Since I said no, I am sure she found someone to do it!

Jan, I am so sorry about your brother, but like you said, he is with Jesus now and is not suffering anymore:)

2015 is the year that I want to stop recovering and start living again!

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

We found out today that my moms longterm health care provider has turned down her claim because she doesn't need enough assisitance. It is nice to know they feel she can deal with her everyday living on her own but they don't get the phone calls when she is confused and lonely like my brother does. Mom is almost 84 and has some memory issues. We thought it would be nice to get her a little assistance and companionship for a few hours a week. Plus take some pressure off my brother and sister. I live 8 hours away so am not much help other then to call and talk to mom.

Is see my oncologist tomorrow for my check up.

I have quilt guild meeting tonight.

Take care.

Julie

Jan, I remember reading your blog about the loss of your brother, again I am so sorry.

Julie, when my mom was still living in her old house, she hit the side of the garage door twice, and had to have it fixed because it was an automatic door.

I slept better last night, and I feel a little better today.

Well I am starting to get over this illness that I have had. I have been so sick I have been in bed for the past almost week. I am truly ready to be over this nonsense.

Not sure but wanted to just tell everyone, my brother passed away from Cancer on Nov 6, 2013. I have had to do a lot of praying to keep my head above water. It is difficult to make arrangements when you are grieving but with God's help I managed. I am glad that my brother and I had already made the decision on what he wanted done.

So he will be in a beautiful Urn in my room. He is at peace now and no longer in any pain. Truthfully I am glad that he has passed away. I did not like seeing him suffer at all. It tore me apart. He is with God and I know he is watching over me each and every day. So I am managing just fine.

I am so glad I have this place to come to, to let out my feelings. It makes me feel better and I appreciate the wonderful support.

I wish everyone a Happy Day and a Spark filled day as well.

Blessings

Good Morning!!!

Finally feel normal again! At least that was a short illness – thank goodness!

Got my workout in this morning and am ready to face the day…Still on that dang plateau but it said it could take up to two weeks for the statins to get out of my system so I am trying to be patient.

My sugar is still responding to all this healthy eating and exercise though – I had to lower my insulin again!

Daddy is doing a little better each day now that his off the chemo…I hope he continues to gain strength

Hope you all have a great day!

Jean, Kathy and Shari I hope you are feeling better.

Just completed a short walk on the treadmill. I have started watching the Harry Potter movies as I walk. I have entire series of books that I listen to when I sew.

I'm having a second quiet evening at home.

I talked to my mom yesterday. She is a little up set because she backed out of the garage without opening the door over the weekend. She did a little damage to her car but the garage door has to be replaced. I told her lots of people do stupid things, Like myself when I backed into the our mailbox and ripped the mirror off my car. I had to back all the way across the road in order to hit the mailbox, but I managed to do it.

Well I am off to get my moms quilt to work on the binding.

Take care

Julie

Jean and Kathy, glad you are both feeling better.

Last night, the chemo side effects hit me a little harder than they usually do, so I did not get enough sleep last night. I've been taking it easy today because I feel so light headed, and I am sure the light headedness is from not enough sleep. I can't take naps because then I can't sleep at night, so I have just been taking easy today, and I plan on an early bedtime tonight. I am sure after a good night of sleep I'll feel more like myself tomorrow.

I am so happy for you! Attitude and positivity (is that a word?) has so much to do with life, and you have the right attitude, and are always so positive! God will give you strength! You can do this! You sound so excited! I love what your virtual friend said to you! If you can "feel" it working, then I am sure it is! Thanks for sharing:)

For the first time yesterday after months chemo and of feeling nothing...I felt like something might be working! Now one of the women who shared Chemo with me yesterday explained how hard this treatment was and that she could not take it...so maybe I want something so badly that I am looking for things that really aren't there....but I don't think so....I got myself to my office this morning without waking John and with a cup of coffee and and I no longer remember when the last time that I did that...I felt chemo yesterday....I had to get home with only part of my errands completed.....and the weakness that I have has decreased....I can't believe that I feel like like this so fast and had yet a very low dose of Prednisone so that can be eliminated! I truly believe that it may become my “strength” in days to come over the next few weeks but there is hope that I haven't quite felt in really the last months that I am sure my friends have recognized too!!!! There is just something about being proactive that cannot be replaced because it leads me to make a difference...so as we move forward know that I can do so now in a manner that I could not have only a few hours ago...be I right or wrong to be so excited! After all, my strength more often than not comes from some pain that I have already experienced!

So thank you you one and all for being with me yesterday! I know that each of you supported me in many special ways! Including as one friend told me “I am a virtual friend so I can sit on your shoulder and not weigh you down” and she and I smiled when I patted my shoulder and my Chemo buddy looked at me as if to say whoops, I get it!

Sue, 2 weeks on the job is still considered "new" in my opinion, so please don't be hard on yourself, I'm sure things will fall into place before you know it.

Jean, praying that this chemo does it's job. Today was my chemo day too.
I did not find anything out about that special blood tests I had last week, I found out today that it's a test that has to be repeated over time; it's not the number on the first test that matters so much, but how that number changes over time. He'll repeat it again in another 4-6 weeks. So I am not to going to worry about for now, if my chemo does have to change, it won't happen until at least a month or two from now.

Thanks to all for November info!

The news was saying that there isn't usually tornadoes in November, but there is always that one or two exceptions.
I'm on my second week at the new job and I'm beginning to worry that I'm not getting it. There are so many different variables to everything! I think I have one part down, and then there is an exception. Every day he adds something new to learn and I don't think I have the first part down before it's time to do something new.
I had a headache all weekend and couldn't sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. Tonight I'm going to take a sleeping pill and hope that helps:)

I live in central Michigan, and I remember years ago, we did have a tornado here in November. It was much warmer than normal that day, in the 60's, like it was yesterday. My mom and I were shopping in a local grocery store. We didn't know what was going on that time; we just knew it there was some very heavy rain because we could hear it on the roof. We took our time finishing our shopping because we didn't want to go out in it, and I remember the lights flickered on and off at the time.

Found out listening to radio on the way home that a small tornado went through. I don't think anyone was hurt, but it damaged a few roofs and broke some windows.It was a weekday too, and I think it was before all the schools were let out for the day. It skipped over part of the college, which was scary because there students out walking on the campus at the time.

I thought that we didn't have to "fear" tornadoes in November! Does anybody remember them before this round! I hope that they are over and everybody is OK throughout IL!

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

The devastation in the midwest is really awful! I don't know how those people do it! My prayers are with them.

Aug. 9th, I will start the Ideal Protocol diet. This is a high protein diet where you can lose weight in a healthy way. I hope to have more energy and feel good for a change, and lose weight too!

Good morning everyone,

I'm at work today, busy preparing for my court case tomorrow.

I hope everyone is OK after all the major storms that went through the midwest.

It is cloudy and threatening rain here, but it continues to be mild. I understand the temperature is supposed to drop in the next few hours, so it will be cold and potentially snowy later this week.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day...debra

We have had tornado watches here most the day but all we got was a little bit of thunder and a fair amount of rain.

Our concert went well last night but it was a late night. It was midnight by the time I go to bed.

We played for a 90th birthday party today. It went well but my fingers are a bit sore.

I got the binding on my moms quilt today. Should have it done in plenty of time for Christmas.

Have a good week!

Julie

My prayers are with you all that are experiencing the sever weather! Last year was bad enough, I pray the weather will be better this year, but it doesn't look like it will be. Our poor world is so messed up with all global warming and all, it's throwing everything out of whack! At least that;s what I think is causing all this weird weather everywhere:)

I hope if any of you are in the path of severe weather today that you and your families stay safe.
We had a severe thunderstorm warning this afternoon, and things were kind of scary for a little while. I haven't heard of any damage in my town, but downstate they had a lot of wind damage a couple of possible tornadoes. We are still under a tornado watch til 8pm, and a high wind warning til 4am.

Jean - so sorry to hear about the spread of the cancer. I had to take taxotere for a while, and I took neulasta once. Both have pain as a possible side effect, so my recommendation would be to make sure you get good pain meds and take them to help you.

Kathy - good news about your daddy!

Shari - good news about the neck pain and good luck with the hip pain.

Sue - congrats on the new job.

It's Toronto's Santa Claus parade today - thankfully the road closures won't affect me too much - they're a couple of blocks away - but it will be busy here. Thankfully, also, that our silly mayor is not officially taking part.

I'm just back from 4 days up north with my mother and my youngest son...so now I'm at work, with lots to catch up on, and much to do. So, I'd better get to it.

Best wishes to everyone for a wonderful day...debra

Thank you! It's supposed to rain by Tuesday and hopefully a good one too! We haven't had any rain this year at all and are headed for a drought if we don't get some soon!

Sue, I'm glad the job is going well.

It's warm here today too, in the mid 50's. We have rain coming though, from what I saw on the radar, probably within an hour or two.

Julie, have fun with your music this weekend!
Kat, paperwork is such a nuisance!
Ida, it's finally getting a little cooler here, a high of 68 degrees today. We never get cold like you all do:)

My first full week of work and I am exhausted! But it's a good kind of exhaustion:) It's really not even a full 40 hours because I don't go in until 11-11:30 or so. I am working for my brother now and he says to just do what I can until I get used to it. Family is great!
