Lots of tests today, so they can try to work out why I'm feeling so tired... (nothing hard: just scans and samples)

* try to catch up on some dishes so I can eat nono tongue - done some already
* straighten sheets or make bed
* exercise or stretch, but not in one go as I did yesterday, because that was a BIG mistake
* take meds
* spirituality stuff
* deal with legs, so I won't feel embarrassed in hospital gown tongue (it's been so cold lately; legs get hard to deal with)
* print & envelope letters


Seeing as I have to go out, try to:

* post letters
* vote
* return library books
* pay bill?
* grab a few groceries?
* grab form from police station?


tlc @ home:

* REST
* read
* do some mending?
* tape All Saints, if it's on
* try to declutter five things
* decide whether to mend towel, or just turn it into a cleaning rag
* make a to-do list for this week
* cut fingernails? (depends on whether my hands improve: can't do it now)
* anything else off the stress list?


I think that's it for now. I might come back and add other things later, if I think of anything else.

Inflamed, I'm thinking of you. I have the feeling that your guests may be gone by Monday, and I hope you'll be able to get some R&R and get life and health back on track quickly.

Thanks Ivy!! They leave first thing. Good luck with your tests. I have the same leg (and brow) issue but it's summer here. EEK!

My son caught a cold from the guests. I nurse him so it's mild so far. We'll rest and stay in if he's sick. Otherwise:
- enjoy the nice weather
- pick up groceries
- picnic dinner in the yard
- begin to put the house back together
- HYDRATE
- eat wisely

Hope you all have a good day. It's still Sunday here, but I'm already excited to celebrate Monday

Back from the first round of tests.

* deal with legs, so I won't feel embarrassed in hospital gown - yes
* print & envelope letters - yes
* post letters - yes
* vote - yes
* return library books - yes
* pay bill - yes
* REST - yes. Went back to bed for 45 minutes. Will probably do it again after test #2.
* do some mending - tried, but it's too hard on the hands today. Might try a different form of needlework, with bigger stitches
* try to declutter five things - yes
* decide whether to mend towel, or just turn it into a cleaning rag - yes. It's now a rag.

Cup of tea for me, then more tests.

So sorry about your little boy, Inflamed. Great to hear the guests will be gone soon though.

Just came back from camping at a mountain lake next to a glacier with ten 17-22 year old men (stunning views but very cold water), twin five-year old girls and four adults. The "leave no trace" forest bathroom was very difficult. Breakfast made me have appalling abdominal cramping and a little D. Azathioprine is making me weak. Finished the day by carrying 1/2 of everyone's gear in my canoe for 14.7 miles against the wind! It was the hardest thing I've done in a while. Normally it would have been an easy canoe ride.
So my TLC Monday list is:
Eat only low residue foods
make the kids do at least half the laundry and clean our car
I'll finish the laundry
wash the dog
manicure and pedicure for me and dog
yoga
back massage from husband
a mojito on the balcony with a good book

I haven't had an interview in about 4 months, and I have one today..not until 3pm so I have 12 hours still. It's at a family practice only about 20 minutes away (including traffic) and really sounds like a great opportunity. I've been unemployed for over a year, so I'm crossing fingers, toes, legs, arms...anything I can! I'm nervous about the bruises I have from last week's hospital stay. Was on TPN and it killed my veins and left me looking like a drug addict. The bruises are fading, so I'll probably try to cover them with a bit of makeup rather than try to wear long sleeves in this heat. Wish me luck, and cross your fingers for me!

My TLC for today (after I go to bed...which is after I post this):
*INTERVIEW!!!! :-) :-) :-)
*go to parents house and pick up new cell phone (Dad put me on his plan and got us all new phones!!)
*take new cell phone to store and have contacts transferred from current to new phone
*pick up pain med rx at pharmacy...running low at home right now so I'm taking them sparingly but have been uncomfortable
*research low residue foods for some new ideas...I'm tired of chicken and potatos!
*grocery shop for low residue foods
*return a few items at Walmart
*try to get some nutrients in my body...maybe an Ensure or 2 today will help me get energy back
*paint toenails
*unclutter kitchen
*catch up on DVR'd shows from last week
*rest, rest, and more rest!

Subzero-I'm impressed! Can you pass some energy my way so I can be in as great shape as you apparently are?

Happy Monday all! I hope yours goes well! Will post later about job interview...hopefully I'll be all :-) :-) :-) and have good things to report!

Oh, and add to my list:

Call GI and discuss when/where/how to get B12 shots, have her remind me of blood test results from thyroid, vitamin D, etc. (I spoke with her by phone while in the hospital...she works at a different one than insurance covers and I was seen and admitted by hospitalists and surgeon...some of the conversation is fuzzy because of high doses of pain meds in system at time of phone call)

Well I forgot to take my night time meds and woke in the middle of the night and took them. This has messed me up a little, so I am feeling a little rough today. So for the next few hours I am going to be gentle with myself. Later I will try to go with husband and do laundry, go by swapmeet near the house to buy more corn so hubby can help me make more microwaveable heating pads. And take shower and wash hair. Phew I am a little tired right now just thinking of what I have to do.

Nanners, do you have to do so much? Sounds like a lot to me.

Believe it or not Ivy6, I was able to do it all. Although I did end up taking a little nap afterwards:)
