It is nice and sunny today, as opposed to the rain yesterday.
Let's see, it's been interesting around here lately. My Aunt is still battling, whatever? She's finally off Antibiotics, and only on pain meds for her flank pain. The specialist (urologist)said she is completely clear of ANY kidney infection or obstruction. My aunt has only ONE kidney. She went into Albany Medical Center (a teaching hospital) yesterday a.m. THANK GOD! Maybe they'll finally find out what i
It's a beautiful day here in Schodack NY! Sunny and not humid.
Let's see...Our son graduated from HS on Saturday June 23. Unfortunately I had 'something', not sure if it was a stomach flu or just an EXTREME low. The afternoon of the ceremony I had a temp of 104*. Thank GOD, Nick was in the front, so I was able to see him walk across the stage. Our daughter then drove me home and they went out for dinner with my husbands mom, sister and boy friend as well as my parents.
I can't believe it's been so long. So much has happened. I figured I'd post today since I called in to work due to extreme weakness in my arms and legs. Yesterday I had a VERY difficult time just driving. It's raining and I am just vegging. OK here it goes.
I saw Dr. Ludlam in Seattle the week following Easter. I had some highs out there but he wants more and higher. Dr. L. thought that although I am only 168 lbs ( I am 5'1"), my body is definitely not proportional.
I am sooooo excited! My brother, whom I previously mentioned in an entry, is definitely coming with my sister-in-law to look at homes in the area. They'll be flying in on May 26th! PSYCHE!
No news from the insurance company. That REALLY ticks me off! But I do believe that the Lord has His own time, and it does not often go with our time frame. After reading about Monica and her success, although as difficult as it was, it is encouraging to the rest of us who are in limbo. No, not th
WOW! It's been almost five monthes since I've written here. I was going through a VERY tough time. Depression took hold of me due to the fact that I have been in limbo regarding moving forward to see Dr. Ludlam. He is now out in Seattle Washington at Swedish Medical. My primary did finally give me a referral but now we wait for the insurance to decide whether it will pay for the visits and testing. If they won't pay all, we could probably manage 80 % but no less.
What a glorious day here in Upstate NY! It is literally a picture perfect day! The temperatures are rather mild.
Physically, all in all , it's been a good week. I've had more energy. I've been doing that fall baking that I mentioned a few posts back. Made Past Fagioli yesterday and pumpkin gems (boxed) for my nephew's 16th birthday party this evening. I do have a hard time falling asleep, but when I do, I do not hear a thing! I am still very stiff and sore, but you know
YESSSSS! Another long weekend!!!! Not to mention payday! My honey made out well with his procedure and the Dr. thinks it was just a benign polyp! THANK YOU JESUS!!!! He was quite uncomfortable the 1st 24 hrs. but it got better.
Tomorrow Hubbie and son are going to visit colleges. One in Boston and two in Rhode Island. I am not going due to two reasons. The furry kids need to be taken care of and frankly I just can do all that walking, it'll kill my body and then I'll be USEL
Feeling VERY down!!! I just can't seem to shake it. My hips were really killing me today. Today was the second time in one week that I took the elevator at school, which mind you is only two floors! Nasty neck ache, my body and head are just soooo tired. Not to mention the stiffness and feet pain. Taking my hubbie for an out-patient procedure tomorrow for a polyp in his bladder. OOOOHHH! That's going to be painful, but he'll be knocked out. hopefully the pain won't be residual. I'll b
Hope everyone is having a rather healthy day today! Maybe even a great day! The sun is shining with some coud cover. My son and I are off from school today for Yom Kipper, and my daughter has been home since Saturday since she didn't have any classes today either. It's been so nice to have her home. She actually told me the other day that last Sunday, she really was missing me. After the initial shock, that made me feel really good!!! I guess I did o.k. as a mom. We always quest
mass this week AND that Rosary for Peace! I am exhausted from the cleaning and decorating, although I am not finished. The Rosary for peace was absolutely beautiful!!! I felt so peaceful as well. If it wasn't for my faith in God, I would not be able to get through these difficult times! Thank you Jesus and Mary!

Feeling somewhat energetic today! Not at all like this past week! I promised my husband Gus that this weekend the house would look better. I don't know, this being sick and working is for the birds!!! Doing a heavy duty cleaning is usually the last thing on the list. I am just happy that I can keep up on doing laundry and dinner! I am even going to try and put out my Autumn decorations! I LOVE the fall! Of course Summer comes first!!!! The only thing that I don't like is the fact that
