Hi Terri, I only got a short walk in tonight. I need to get to bed. Have to be up at 6am so I can get to dentist by 7:30. Yuck! 70 minute appointment. I want to get a walk in and breakfast before I go. I got the cutest little table and chair set with a beautiful ceramic blue and white top on it. It fits just right on my little deck. I will be having my morning tea and breakfast out there. I love the outdoors.

Heidi you are so lucky to have the grandkids close. You bet I wear a helmet. It even matches the color of my bike. I am going to ride tomorrow night to an appointment we have to find out why the assesed our house at 20,000 more. We can't afford taxes on a house worth that much more. Oh well we will see. Well I'm off to bed now. Barb

Hi Barb! That assessment on your house seems like a pretty big jump! I guess as an investment if you were selling that would be great - if you are like us, Yuck, it's that last thing we'd like to see! :)

That table and chair set sound great and if it helps you to sit back and unwind - it's just what the Dr. ordered!

Have fun at the Dentist! lol

Hugs, Teri :)

Hi Bob! I'm just thrilled that you are doing this well! The fact that you are out doors doing all this is just a wonder - though, remember to be careful in the heat!
Please stop by more often and let us know how you're doing!!

Big Hugs from Texas! Teri :)

Hey y'all!
 
Teri is right. I was making my Cursillo this weekend.  VERY amazing experience...Words cannot describe.  My Fourth Day is going to be very exciting.  I got home last night at about 10pm-ish.
 
Like many retreats, we are isolated from the world.  No cell phones...no computers.  That wasn't good enough for me though!  I just had to get out.  Had an a-typical asthma attack and the paramedics were called and I was taken to the ER.  I didn't want to go but it turned out to be quite good.  It allowed me to learn why I am going through the health problems I am going through.  I returned to the retreat after getting out of the ER.  All was good...better than good in fact.  I may make a post on what happened...may not.  Haven't decided.
 
I'm feeling ok physically.  I was planning on going to school today and start working in my classroom but decided to stay home and rest.  I'm still in my pj's and it's almost 2pm!  It's nice though.  :)

hi teri,

trying to make a rather serious decision here in the next few days, thinking about

going on to short term disability for this semester at school and not working.  gad!

it's not my ticker giving me the fits as much as my digestive probs along with finding

the right meds, which has become such a slow process.  the plus is that i'd get SOME

pay and keep my medical insurance.  i had actually thought about quitting, so this seems a

much better option, altho' i'm sorry to even do that.  i meet with my dean thursday and i'm sure

he'll flip his wig.  but there's not much he can except rant and rave and i'll  just take a xanax

before our meeting! 

i sure would like to hear others' thoughts on this.  it's a hard emotional decision.  i feel in a way

like i'm "giving up" - and i don't ever want to do that. 

libby

hi LIl
Still in PJ's at 2 pm sounds nice but with my type of personalty no can do maybe a mumu but ot Pj's.
 
Teri thanks for the advice did you get my e-mail with pic of what I wore. I canot wait till Sept 26th till Oct 13 we have Fri's off and the weekend too then  Mon-Thursday. TYipee a very big step and me telling the lady what I am going through is a big step ttoo and for her to say she can see the hurt in my eys adn on my face  is makeing me wake up and smell the coffee now.
 
Libby With yuo  getting on short term disability, do yuo think les stress will help or do you want to just take a chill pill for a while? Now with Dean ????????? Libby it is your body and you need to take care of yurself for one day Dean might not be around and yuo will still be here I would say foloow your gut instinct nad do what you want to do and feel like doing if you can get by , By cutting your huors at work do it if it will help your health just follow your intution anmd go for it.
 
Barb g ho are you doing with your house thing $$$$$$$$$
 
Bob don't work to hard in the yard we got yuo back posting so please keep it up ok.Posting that is.

Libby - you're right, it is a big decision, but it's your decision - we are behind you whatever you decide.
Lil - I hope you are OK. Sorry to hear about your trip to the ER. I know that must have been a big disappointment.
My news is that I have a 24 hr holter....a/o about 9 this a.m. Wow I haven't had one of these since 1977 and things have definitely changed for the better - and it's about 12 lbs lighter lol!
Summertime is a rotten time to do this - it's 92 outside here, and with all the tape & wires it feels like a total meltdown outside. Needless to say (as usual) I'm inside in the A/C.
Hope all are doing well.
hugs,
Oona

Libby, here are just a few thoughts...
Would you be able to continue doing what you normally do if you chose to continue working?
How much hardship would this cause you?
How much time away from work?
If this stomach problem is causing you this degree of trouble and you haven't solved it as yet? Do you see a conclusion to this in your very near future?
You may have already asked yourself these questions, but sometimes it helps hearing them come from someone else. You mentioned taking a xanax :) maybe stress is what is helping to contribute to your problems? - I don't know what your physical level of activity is, but maybe some course in meditation...just thoughts. :)
As all have said...this is your life, Libby, and we can only support you 100% in whatever decision you come to! Good Luck and keep us posted!!

Wishing you only the best, Libby!!
Hugs, Teri :)

I've had a sort of rough day - my nerve pain seems to have increased even while taking the Neurontin. So today my Neuro. Dr. ordered a higher dosage and I'm already trying that - still waiting for some relief. My cardio's nurse called me today and moved up my appt. from the 23rd to this Thurs. I'm not sure what course this will take, but I'd like to have everyone on the same page re my Dr.'s. :) I'll keep ya'll posted.

Hugs, Teri :)

Well, it wasn't too hard, except for the part about leaving at o'dark thirty to beat the rush hour traffic. It was a gorgeous sunrise, though.
As the tech was going over the paperwork, she asked for my phone number and said not to worry, if anything was found the cardio would call right away and have me come in. I said, do you mean they would call today? (thinking this must be a really high tech holter that was going to transmit into space while it was recording on tape, lol) she said, no, not today - when the cardio reads it...oh, ok when is that? In about 3 weeks. yeah Typical teaching hospital, I might have known. tongue

Teri, I'm sorry to hear this! I thought something might be up because I had hardly seen you here today and I knew you were having problems with your back - I hope the higher dosage will work for you - maybe it still needs a little time to kick in.
It sounds like you're getting your Doc's on the same page, at least. I hope you'll get some help & feel better soon. Please do let us know what's going on, ok?
hugs,
Oona

It's just for 24 hrs, thank goodness. I'll get rid of it in the a.m.
Three hours would have been plenty, I'm sure its caught most of what's been happening, but there might be more...bedtime is when the real fun begins (for all the wrong reasons, lol)

Big Hugs, Teri :)

well it sounds like we're ALL having a bit of a rough patch right now, doesn't it?  maybe it's the alignment of the moon, or something!  you know mars is going to be really big on 8/27, maybe that will bring us some relief! tongue

seriously.  i don't know what i'd do without my healing well family.  now let's all do our best to talk to our docs, find some solutions, take care of ourselves, and feel the best that we can!
