Hi Jane,

So glad that you are still with us. This is so cool. Did you get my message on your wall in Facebook? I am not really good at it still. but I am learning.

You can't imagine how happy that I am to have you still here.

I hope that you have a wonderful evening. Talk to you later when you get up.

Luv Karen

Karen i don`t know if she can get into my messages in FB or not so i just don`t write anything there just incase i really don`t need the aggro things dirrected at me at present each day is hard enough .
I`m just so tired atm the weather has warmed up considerably and i just do not go so well in the heat .The last treatment on my nose has caused a few more problems i`ve really had enough of this it`s been currently gi=oing on for three years now with no end insight .I have to go back and see this last specialist next week i just hope i feel a lot better than i do today .
I saw the chiropractor again this morning and he did a lot of work this time .unfortunately next week is his last week he will be coming out here so there goes that just when i thought it would make a difference to things .was just too good to be true i suppose .

I do not know any stories of penguins but i`m sure one day i will recall another of the joeys and what they have done .

Kitt how is your sister progressing i have not heard anything for a while now do hope things have eased a bit for herand that she takes the medication to relieve some of the pain .I know for me i do not want to be knocked out but to go on with my mind as clear as i can have it ...some days i totally loose it with everyone as was the few days after i returned back home to see my home in such a state .
These past few days i just have no energy to do anything i really push myself just to get around but find most days lately i can`t get through the day without having a sleep through the day.Yesterday i slept four hours and was so unwell after i woke up only to get up and cook tea for them all .So far today i have done nothing i just could not be bothered the kids just left their breakfast dishes on the bench in a hope i will put them into the dishwasher as they were just too lazy to do but i`m not going to they can sit there .

BY the way i chose the name snowflake as they are only here for a short while before dissappearing and no two are the same ( so they tell me i have never even seen snow falling ).

Hi Snowflake, come to MN and you will see lots of snow, sometimes it is so beautiful clinging to the trees, and some time it is a pain in the tush to drive in.

My sister left on Monday to go home to North Dakota for our Thanksgiving.  She has been here at the hospital or at the Cancer Hope Lodge for 104 days.  I told her when they called and asked if she could come and could we arrange things I was not expecting her to stay for such a long visit.  LOL. She has one more round of Chemo.  She had one on Saturday and then we finally got her out of hospital and took her to a nice dinner.  My daughter and I bought her a very beautiful wig fitted to her and she cried.

She did not have enough money to buy it now and I did not want her to go home bald.  She kept saying she feels so normal with hair.

Surgery in being planned for January  if things go on schedule.  It may be an open and shut case but at least we will know. I am praying for the miracle that she will be given some good extra years.

I am sorry your family is so selfish.  If my sister did not have me and her super daughter with her she would be alone here too.  She has never spent a night alone without one of us right next to her bed. AT the hospital we have slept on just about everything, mattress on the floor, relciner chairs........

She is so afraid to be alone.

Know I am thinking of you and I am so sorry for the pain you endure.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

Kitt your sister is certainly blessed to firstly have a sister like you one we can only wish for not sure if my sisters would be there for me but iwould be there for them .Then to have a daughter who adores her mother so much she would do anything for her .Thats one awesome family in my books .I remeber back to when my hubby left me in the hospital on my own to go through my cancer treatment on my own i just felt so abandoned and all alone .Especially being in such a bad mental state as it was i was just so frightened .
With all the paryers being said for your sister i`m sure the good lord is taking special notice .
Sometimes in life our plans are out of our hands things just do not go as to how we would want them too .The journey you your sister and both families have gone through in this past year has made an impact on all your lives no matter what the outcome ,come next year you will all be so much stronger for it .I know with what i have gone through i see a lot of things in a different light ( just too bad my family hasn`t )
The snow does sound so wonderful and cooling at that .With the last treatment i had on my nose any kind of heat really stirs up the pain so i just stay inside under the cooler and only venture out if really necessary .

Last night when hubby got home from work he told me they are talking of changing his shifts .
At the current moment he works from 5am to 7pm four days and has four days off .The new system he has been asked to work the same times but to work seven days on and have seven days off .
The on days seem a long time and i know now by the time his four days are up he is tired and cranky ,After working seven it`s going to be even worse .
But i`m not sure i can cope with him being home for seven days as things are at the moment with eeverything going on here .Its not so bad if i can get out but i can`t .Each day he is home i`m pushing myself just to keep going and everyone is on tender hooks as to speak .I just feel as it is not if i said anything to the kids about how i really feel world war three would break out here and it would be the end .Mayb eit would be a good thing but then knowing as to how he reacts to everything it`s not going to end very well .
I only wish he would end this child to find her own place to live as then i`m sure things would be ok again .
Last days off hubby commented that the fun has gone out of our house there isn`t anything to be happy about when you are constantly being worn to a frazzle .
I know my patience has work pretty thin over the past few years and especially this last month or so .
I really do not know what the answer is and could not even give hubby a comment when he asked me what i thought about the shift changes as all i could think about was having to put up with more crap than i already do .
He looses his temper with the wonder child so eaisly and i know this gets to him but thenit`s up to him to put his foot down and put a stop to it .

You are absolutely right, it is up to him to put his foot down. If it were me, I would see how it goes before I say anything. It might be the case of absense makes the heart grow fonder. Maybe a week apart would make up for that week together.

I really hope that this works out for you. Try not to anticipate the worst. Hope for the best.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Thanks Karen i am not going to really comment on this as it`s a decision hubby has to make for himself as it is him who it will effect more so .Time will tell how things go .

Kitt a little story from this mornings phone call i recieved thought it would make up for not having any penguin stories....
I recieved a call this morning from a mum of a couple of little boys i had cared for for a good while .She told me there was a little bird stuck in her down pipe ( the pipe that drains the water from the roof ).
Iwent up there a short time later to see what i could do only to find out the baby bird was caught down the cavity in the wall .There was nothing i could do but to let fate take it`s place .We decided to have a cup of coffee just to catch up as it had been a while since i had talked to this particular mum and i played so much with the little fellow i once cared for ( he was new to my country and very frightened ) He has changed so much and was such a happy little fellow as we played for almost three hours .
Then we decided to check on the chick in the wall but for an amazing achievement he has managed to work his way up to where it`s mother was on the roof .What a rescue it`s a marvelous thing what a good play ,a friendly chat and a good cup of coffee can achieve .
This story doesn`t end there all the time i was there my GRRRRRRdaughter kept on texting me wanting to know why i was taking so long imy reply to her was the emu was stuck in the pipe .My friend and i were in stitches with laughter as to the reply of her textes i got her back a good one .
More importantly is i was asked if i would be interested in working for the dr i see he is moving to a new surgery and needs a partime secretary ...mind you i have never even been a secretary only a nurse but she said she will talk to the dr and let him know they are going to arrange a meeting between the three of us .So you never know what happens when you go out on an animal call out these days .

Have a wonderful day.

snowflake,

What a great story and what a great day for you.  I hope your interview goes well as this would get you out of the house if hubby is going to be home for 7 days in a row.

My husband use to work swing shifts and every week was a challenge. Especially the week we got up at the same time.  When the kids were small, I had to try to keep all 4 of them from  waking Daddy as he always slept as soon as he got home a 0700.  Man he was like a bear with a sore tooth.  I think you are right, 7 days on is not worth the 7 days off.  It is too hard on a person and their family.

I am lucky to have my sister in my life and I am looking forward to her return to Minnesota next week.  I know that is selfish of me but after having her for 104 days my life feels empty without them here.

OK, I know she is having a wonderful visit and I am happy for her.

Keep on  snowing.

Hugs Kitt

What an awful week yesterday was just so bad i have not felt so sick in my life as what i did on Tuesday i was too sick even to go to the drs to get more pain relief .Nothing helped at all .
Today i felt a bit better i had to it was my last day at the chiropractors as he is leaving and mving north to live ,just when it was starting to make a difference ,but that just seems to be how things go around me .
Well atleast he made my long drive today a bit more bearably .
I left home at 12md and finally got out of the car at 7:30 have come back up here again to see the specialist .I can`t believe how the time has flown by but i`m glad as i can`t take the pain for much longer .
The treatment he used a fortnight ago has only made things worse and the pain is so much worse .I can hardly hold my head up and most days have to lie down for extended periods .
I feel awful most of the time .
Kitt i can`t recall anymore stories atm the present time there are more lots i`m sure but i just cn`t thing of them .
I do hope your sister has has an easy time of it while she has escaped the hospitals and that being around friends and family has lifeted her spirits somewhat .
Karen how did your wreaths go did you manage to sell them i thing they ae simply wonderful and only wish they were available down here as i surley would have a good home for one of them .
I do hope you are all keeping well and life has been kind to you all.

Snowflake,

I am sorry that your chiropractor is leaving. That does seem to happen to you, doesn't it. I guess you would just want to look at it as you were lucky to receive the relief that you got from him. Hoping the next will be just the same or better.

That is such a long drive for you. That alone would cause some pain. I hope that you got that under control.

I wish that I could send you a wreath, but actually I am done making them. It would be cool to think one of my wreaths went to Australia. Maybe next year.

I hope that you have a wonderful day. You deserve it. How is your garden coming? It sounds beautiful when you talk about it. I just love gardening.

Take care, have a lovely day. Keep posting, I always love to hear from you.

Luv and hugs, Karen

Hi Karen I `m not sure if i will get to see the next on as things are pretty tight at the moment so mu=ight just have to rely on my relaxation tape again but you are right in saying the relief was surely worth it and i did appreciate his kind help.
It was indeed a long drive the worst thing about living where i live it just takes so long to get anywhere .Medical services are so far away .
As for the pain i took a very strong pain med four hours ago and it has not given any relief as of yet .i will soon end and see if i can just lie and eventually fall to sleep as i can only take these meds 12 hours apart as theya re just so strong sadly the pain is a bit stronger lately than what they are .
After seeing the picture of your wreath i can just imagine one hanging on my fromt door would be the envy of the whole neighbourhood .
My garden i have not visited it since i returned home apart from one day i spent out weeding it with hubby .The weather has been just to hot for me outside i find it extreemily difficult to breathe in the heat and therefore do not venture out side for more than a few minutes .
I have to rely upon hubby to water it whenhe has the time .I know i willl loose a lot of the plants over summer as the heat just fries them .
Will head off now .Take care and have a wonderful day in your little part of the world .Oh how i would just love to inhale deeply the lovely cold air you have there atm .
God bless.
Snowflake
