Sorry to hear that, Maga! Hope it goes better than the predictions!

I'm heading for South Dakota today to get lasik to correct the vision from the cataract surgery. Lasik tomorrow then head back home Friday, if all goes well.

Hey, Maga, glad to see you back, but sorry about the pain. Hoping it improves soon!

Kimberly, I know it must be hard for you to accept your Dad's help, but how wonderful that he is willing to help you. I remember when my Dad was critically ill that I saw parts of him that I thought I would never see and had never wanted to see, but it was necessary to keep him comfortable! He has never mentioned it, so I know he was embarr "assed."

Not looking forward to the drive and a little nervous about driving back the day after the lasik, but doctor said it should be OK! Have already warned son that he may be stuck with Daisy for an additional day, if I don't feel up to it!

Have you heard anything yet, Katy?

Good for you getting yourself securly back on track. Folks seem very busy lately. Carol, I would dread the drive. Now the good news is since Daisy is being entertained, you can stop for a nice meal.


I am dozing again so I'll see how long I last. Just finished showering and it took a lot of help, rather embarassing when my Dad is telling me I don't have anything he hasn't seen, But for me, it is hard. Oh well, I'm stopping now to see what else I can hit before crashing.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Katy, I'll bet you look great in those suits! Hoping you soon get good news from the interviews!

Kimberly, thinking of you!

Not looking for any kind of geezer (young or old) right now, but not saying never! Trying to get back into a formal exercise routine. Going up and down the basement stairs umpteen times a day should count as something! Daisy is looking trimmer, too, from all the steps!

Katy, as far as the suits, they rotate like a revolving door. Only those in the fashion industry will have any idea if your suit is post dated. So long as you have kept your suit in good conditon as you have said then you did great.

Carol, decided to stop with the strenghth training only and move back into aerobics - enough boxes.Why not become a cougar, the he** with the geezers.

Well yesterday ended up being another bad day lol busy busy busy and i was to tired to exercise, so going to try to today. only going to do a 20 min workout. still no news. oh well. I did purchase some clothes just in case, and even if I don't get it. at least I will have some clothes to where. Lord knows I never clothe shop seriously, my suits I am wearing to interviews are 15 years old LOL that is bad I know but they dont look it because I never wear them and they are like new and look in style. haha

Katy, start back slow, don't try to do too much all at once. I think I will like the gym! No hot trainers, but a lot of old geezers! Wait, I'm an old geezer!

Kimberly, hope the meds will help as time goes along!

Going to the library today and try to get my Nook going with the library!

Carol, isn't it funny when everything is clean and neat, we actually want to make our beds.

Katy, I just started a medrol pack and so far it is only increasing the pain level. But you have to decide on the doctor and his qualifications and then place your trust in him/her. So far, not so good.! TMI!
I am glad you felt the interview went well. I hope all went the right way and you get it.

Katy, so glad the interview went well! Hoping the results are what you hope for1

Kimberly, holding my breath to see what you found out! Turning blue here!

I think I will like the gym. Not sure what Susan's title is, but her emphasis was on the same things that Spark recommends and I was able to keep up in the class. Not sure how often I will do it, but have a few classes I want to try including chair yoga! We'll see!

Carol, let's see can you fail out of Silver sneakers if you aren't Peppy enough? Who possibly does theevaluation, a nurse, a PT or is this just to decide if you belong withh the snails, the jackrabbits or the gazelles? I HOPE you like it and you do it for a short while just to male contacts in town.


emoticon katy with the interview. You are soooo right about second guessing your responses. To this day when asked what my dad did for a living and i said he built bombs, I still wonger if that was the wring answer ( true story). I can't wait for you to hear. Come on Friday.this or that one.


Dread comes this afternoon, see what the grim reaper says today..

The interview went awesome, now it is a waiting game. of course there are a few questions i feel could have been answered better afterwards of course, isn't it always like that LOL they interviewed 3 of us. so they said it would be the end of this week or the end of next week.
glad to hear you are settled in Carol and daisy must be relieved you are not going to forget and pack her in a box anymore LOL

Good luck with your doctor today, Kimberly. Hope he has some good answers for you!

I joined Silver Sneakers at the Y yesterday and have my first evaluation today! Should be interesting and will probably dictate wheter I follow through on it! I have been having good luck exercising at home, but hard to change it up and get out of this plateau that has lasted almost a year now!

BOLO, BOLO for everyone!

Kimberly, keep that list going and get the answers! Hoping that this is all part of the healing process and gradual improvement will happen!

I just kind of puttered around yesterday and did a little shopping. Found an area rug I liked and it was on clearance, so, of course, I splurged. My credit card is starting to whine every time I use it!

Katy, how did the interview go, how is your tooth feeling by now?

Anybody else out there?????

Carol, I think Daisy sounds more relieved to be back to you and the others gone. I am glad youare settling in.

Dad called kathy, the nurse, before I even woke up this morning. It turns out it was administrative and they couldn't remember why the bone scan was ordered. Now that is a little incompetent, here I am after surgery and they can't figure out why I am here and what tests have gotten us here. I will have a list for Wednesday. Dad got in contact with the one person on a web site that had sounged as bad as me. She started at 18.. Dad and her mom are writing back and forth and she was worse for a few years. It has only been in the five year point that she has some good days.. I need to know the doc's view and why he at first didn't think I could be helped by the surgery. I just want to know if this course is right at all or am I in big trouble. Fingers crossed. We are now talking about how to tear the closet and bathroom apart so I will be able to stand up in the restroom with a walker and wheelchair.Life it keeps a changin'

I call myself platinum blonde, but let's face it-it'white!

Katy, hope you had a great interview. Fingers and toes crossed!

Kimberly, had they given you any results from the bone scan previously? Which doctor was it with?

Pretty much settled in, family gone so Daisy dog and I are getting used to the house. She had been carrying her favorite ball around constantly. Slept with it in her mouth, barked with it in her mouth, etc. Guess it must have been her security blanket, because as soon as everyone left she dropped the ball and has ignored it since!

If roots were thr worst of the problems. Had a message on the machine at home from my doctor;s office wanting to talk to me about he bone scan back on 11 January. I amquite bothered, I am hoping it is just an administrative upright.

Good luck again with the interview,

Daughter brought dinner and we ate outside and then had a fire in the firepit and did smores! It was almost like the camping weekend we had planned before the move got accelerated!
I like my side by side, too, but since the move my icemaker is doing weird things! I have a small chest freezer in the basement (hey, I can have real things in the basement here!). Well. almost time to bust my b*tt putting the cereal and milk on the table!

Take care!

Maga, I don't know how hou are doing it without painpills. I have a fentanyl patch, Percocet and valium for the first breakthrough and oxycodone for the second breakthrough. Still, I have woken up screaming inpain a few night's now. I can't move to even rollover to move the pain points. I will see the surgeon next week and find out if this is normal.I do best if I can take the breakthrough's and sleep every 2 hours before feeling the pain again. But I don't do this and I really do not know what the correct choice is? Good luck to you with all the change now..

Katy, I have a side by side but I also have a full size self defrosting freezer in the laundry room. There is never enough room in any freezer.I have been happy with the kitchen-aid with exception of the ice maker. I've had the frig 7 years and am on my fourth ice maker.

Yay!!!! Unpacking is all done except for 3 little boxes that I want to think about for a while! Cleaned today-moving in dirt, yuk! Now just waiting for daughter and 2 granddaughters. Daughter will straighten me out on all the things I put in the wrong places, etc.!! I do value her opinion!

Katy, sounds like you are feeling a little better. My dentist (well, the last one I went to before I moved had a one piece contoured sofa like thing that reclined and was really confortable. I had trouble staying awake!

Kimberly, hope things are going better for you today!

Kimberly, well my new fridge is a side by side, I just like those better, I am not thrilled that the freezer is smaller in this one than my last side by side that died, I wont get GE appliances they seem to die faster than others, that is hubbies experience as well. and here is a tidbit of info. the glass in your oven door, stove top, microwave door, fridge shelves etc all appliance glass is my by my hubbies company he works for in lil ol sweetwater tn they do have a couple of other plants too. but I had white but replaced it with stainless. i did not want the french door one with the freezer on the bottom, i didnt want to have to bend over and dig through everything everytime i wanted something out of the freezer, even though those are cheaper.
Carol, I know what you mean about being sore, my legs are so sore from the dentist chair and i had my feet propped up on the dentist chair to hold me in place, those chairs are not made for kids or small people and he has to have your head inthe head rest. grrrrrrr so charlie horses all week in a bad way. i have not exercised in almost 3 weeks now ladies. i really need to get my fatt butt back into gear and starting next week I am back at it 3 times a week.

Kay, congrats on the fridge! Inquiring minds want to know more! How's the root canal coming along?

Kimberly, Hang in there, let's hope things will get better soon. When is your doctor's appointment?

Neck hurts, back hurts, legs really hurt, arms and shoulders really hurt. Sure glad I'm almost done with the unpacking. Finally got my pc hooked up instead of the laptop. Had my first full day alone at the house and enjoyed it. Love my family, but just not used to having them around all the time. Daughter and granddaughters are coming tomorrow (this was supposed to be our camping weekend). Daughter is bringing Friday night meal and I have stuff for Smores for desert around the firepit, if I can stay awake long enough. I am really liking the house and love my backyard (so does Daisy dog!) Sleep is a problem. Have not been getting nearly enough, but hope as things settle down, I will be able to get more. Now it's time for wine on the deck! Have a great weekend!

Katy, what color, side by side, armoire, freezer on top, freezer on bottom? I always love to learn what you like about what made you pick it and is it meeting expectations. I have a new fridge in mind but my neighbor bought one ,similar but not the same, and she hates it. I guess for now I have no needs for a new fridge.


Carol, Is the UNpacking done. Is it wine time?


MAGA, hope your week has been good- like to see you commenting on blogs. Any communication can help.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Carol Yayyy your alive, I bet your exhausted and have a ton of unpacking left to do, been missing you. Get some rest in between boxes sis.

Kimberly, hang in there sis, you have been through more than your share of surgeries to know how long it takes to heal, and the older you get the slower it gets haha Dont let the after surgery depression set in either. You know you will get better, you always have you always will.

Got my new fridge yesterday yayyyyyyyy looks so pretty

Carol, emoticon emoticon A trophy for you and your record shattering unpacking. WOOHOO!

Katy, I am glad your mouth is feeling better. I was given 2 more 5 mg hydrocodones in addition to the 10mg percocet(hydrocodone)/325 tylenol and 10 mg valium for the breakthrough pain of the fentanyl patch. I'm glad they finally helped. They help me but only if I let myself sleep all day.


It has been just over two weeks since the surgery and I can only say that I can't do anything at all by myself anymore. Imagine my thoughts, now. I see the doctor a week from today. Will things change for the better?

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

ok am back today and feeling so much better today. omg that was aweful. even the hydros he wrote a prescription for were stronger than the ones he gave me to begin with, he knew how much i was going to hurt LOL my tooth was so swollen, it hung down and was hitting my bottom teeth when i yawned, talked, ate and sneezed holy crap that hurt lol finally the swelling went down. and my new fridge got here today. I have another job interview on Monday, I still havent heard from the other ones, but usually the longer you hear from them that means you didnt get the job. but i am just happy to finally be on day shift.

Kimberly how are you sis? doing any better?

Carol probably dont have cable yet, i wonder if she has tried to see if she can hijack off one of her neighbors LOL

Katy. I'll have to look around. I hope that the refrig was delivered soon. What did you get?The one complaint I have with SP is I can find no way of getting a copy of a PM I sent. If you know how,let me know. I'll actually check the mean journal I was keeping during winter and spring.

Carol,how was the sleeps niight in the new home? Can't wait to hear if the kitty ever piped down. If at all like my cat, she did her share of stinking things up., and NO windows lowered-BUMMER!


MAGA, I hope your weekend was good.

Take care all,
Kimberly

I am fighting feeling better from the pain but then I can't stay awake. Today, I tried dropping the meds but didn't feel up to doing anything. To add insult to injury, my computer decided to get it's own unusable operating system,hence the iPad.

Maga,rest today, heck someone can join me with all these busy bees around.

Carol, I hope you got more sleep and will itbbe a one day drive or more?

Katy, please a little more infomon thevarticle I would have sent. Feel free to PM me if it is personal. Hopefully, I'll figure outnwhat you are talking about- medical,financial, ,etc. lord knows my mouth runneth over way too much.

Help with the frustration! I can't walk at all now, not a step since surgery. I keep telling myself it is the swelling around the nerves. I won't see the doc again until mid+ August.I don't know what to do with the pain meds. if I stay out of pain (0-1), I am sleeping almost all the time. So today, I decided to cut meds in half. I removed one 10/325 percocet and the new breakthrough meds. So today, I can't communicate very much because I hurt and don't want to do anything. Bummed and no solutions to think of.

Since the computer died after taking my messages,I will have to try to find the threads. I do not mean to neglect anyone. Just one free show after another.

Enjoy life when you can, as life changes when you least expect it!!!

Sounds like you are excited Carol and want to get your day started. LOL

Kimberly, I did already do my paper work and backed out of Kaplan, I do have a job interview on the 15 for another position, keep me in your prayers on that. more money, and mon - fr.
I am sure the pain will ease up I know I was hurting for months after my surgery, even though I know this is a diff type of surgery, I am sure it will be a while to get it straightened out. btw do you still have that article saved somewhere you sent me? can you resend ?

Maga, wtg sis. so glad to see you here.

I am trying to get back on program of some kind let me tell you. I am still not used to working day shift, I am trying really hard, my body is used to sleeping nights already but the rest of me hasn't caught up with that yet LOL

am still struggling to stay awake through balancing the meds.Exhaustion is hard,not being able to walk is hard, I never really thought abought walking even worse. I just keep hoping my body will calm down. About 12 days before the next appt. My folks got a tv for my room, hoping that I can forget some of the pain watching tv,

Carol, is the uhaul straightebed out? I bet they aregiving you the kids are going back to college.

Katy, know your mouth is killing you, have you decided to do the paperwork to leave Kaplan.....

Maga emoticon on the weight loss!!!!!
