Latest Rundown!!

I got a cold and since the first round of antibiotics at home didn't help Dr put me in the hospital. The IV's helped a lot!! Cleared me right up and now I can breath again.
So I get home from the hospital.....I walk up the 3 little steps.....put my foot down on the porch....twist my ankle and guess what???? I broke it! What else....jeez. Just call me Grace. Anyway I have a walking cast boot thing on now and man does my ankle hurt. Thanks god for good pain meds. It will heal in a few months but what a nuisance!!!

So how was your day???

It's Been a While

I have been here just haven't done much posting either here or on my scrap blog. I am not fully recovered from my illness earlier this year. But I have come a long way. Today I got my license renewed so I warn you now.....Stay off the sidewalks. LOL!!!

I just recently discovered Harry Potter Movies. I know....everyone on earth besides me has seen them...but I am in the middle of the series. After I see the movies I plan on reading the book series. As with most book to screen stories the book will have much more detail.

My newest grandchild was born 2 weeks ago today. She has a full head of dark brown curly hair like her daddy. I think she is gorgeous!! Today was her 2 week weigh in and she now weighs over her birth weight....she's 7# and 5 ozs.

Dinner time here so I am off to get food! See ya all later!

End of School

Jeff is out of school now. He will have his graduation ceremony on the 31st. We are having an open house party for him on the 30Th. Then he will be going to Arizona with his grandfather for 3 weeks. Tyler gets out of school on Friday but he is only in Pre-K so he has a long way to go.

Wendy is feeling pretty good for being 8 mos pg. She's getting big too. We had a baby shower for her on Saturday. It was fun but it sure wore me out. My strength is coming back but some days it seems like it will take forever.

I'm working on a new scrap kit and also June desktops and calendars so check back to see if I am done yet.

Later...Stay safe and be happy!

Went to the kidney doctor today. He is happy with my blood work. Kidney function is good, hemoglobin is up so no shot, and all the rest within normal range. Good. I feel pretty good too. The PT gal gave me a workout on Wednesday so I am worn out today. LOL!! The price you pay for getting better.

The Lakers are playing now. They look tired and lack any spark. Looks like the series will go 7. At least they will be back home in LA for the last game. Hopefully they will win. But they need to rest up. They will be playing the Nuggets and they are hot right now.

Mikey is sick right now. He has a temp and the poor little guy is hot as a furnace. Wen is giving him some Tylenol and putting him to bed. Hopefully he will feel better tomorrow. It's so hard when they are little like he is. Tyler seems OK now but he had a very bad ear infection last week.

OK well I am going to get back to watching the game since half time is almost over. More later. Stay safe and be happy!

Catching Up

I have been working hard on getting myself moving. I started walking by myself last weekend. I am like Mikey with little balance and even less stamina. I saw Dr Jenny and she said I looked good for a dead person. She was reading my file from the hospital and it wasn't good. She said my lungs were clear and I sounded good. We made a deal that if I get sick I get one round of antibiotics...then into the hospital for IV infusion if that doesn't work. She doesn't want me to get sick like that again either.

I closed my old list and have made a new one. I will be doing stats and so on also, not just tags. I have a lot of ppl who have joined. And I also am getting back into making tags for Awesome.

Time for bed so I'll close for now.

Lakers win the Game

I just have to jump in here and say Yeah!! Lakers won the first round of the play offs. Next up will be either the Houston Rockets or the Portland Trailblazers. Houston is ahead 3-1 in their playoff so it could be them if they win tomorrow. Both are good teams so I am not going to pick either one to win. The Lakers will have to play well to get past either of them.

Time for bed now. I am getting stronger every day but 6 weeks in the hospital takes a toll. I never realized how bad pneumonia is. I have had it before but this time was really hard. I am walking with a walker now but I am getting my balance back so I can walk across a room with no help. It's only been a few weeks that I have been home so I have to be patient I guess and keep working on getting stronger.

Night for now.

Playoffs shaping up

Lakers won last night night to take the series to 3-1. Kobe was the man!! Now it's back to LA for game 5.

I'm doing better. I am working on walking a few steps without the walker. It's still dificult but I get a little stronger every day.

I have started looking for a puppy. I am not sure what I want yet so I will just keep looking til I find her.

Gotta go get Jeff moving on dinner so we can eat tonight!!!

Well it was close but the Lakers lost to the Jazz 86-88. Like I have said you can't win them all!! It was a good game though. I have added a Widget to the blog so you can see who is playing when if you are interested.

I went to Physical Therapy yesterday. Boy did she give me a workout. My muscles are all sore today. I still did my workout this morning. The more I do the more I can do. I am trying to walk around a few steps without the walker. My balance sucks but I can go 2 or 3 steps. And I haven't fallen down which is a good thing.

Blogging Beautification

I have spent the last 2 hours making a few changes to this blog. I hope it looks prettier than it did. As I get stronger and can spend more time I will add more pretties.

I have let a few of my groups know that I am getting better and I have even gone back to mail in one of them. I want to take this time to Thank everyone who prayed for me and who kept me in their thoughts. I have come to discover that prayer is a very powerful healer. I don't think I would be here without the love and the prayers said for me.

This is the everyday stuff

On my journey thru life I have hit a few snags. This blog will give you some insite into the snags.

It's funny how things always come full circle. I am back after a 6 week "vacation". Most of my vacation was spent in a drug induced coma. You see...I got a really really bad case of pnuemonia. I has litlerally on deaths door. I was placed on a ventilator. I have absolutely no memory of any of this. I am not telling any of you this for sympathy. It is simply another way for me to come to terms with what happened and to continue to deal with and heal from it.

At the beginning of March I got a cold....a bad one. By the 6th I was not able to even move...I couldn't breath. My daughter took me to the doctor again and they sent me to St Paul to the big hospital. The doctor said without the ventilator I would not have lived thru the night. Twelve days later the doctor started bring me out of the coma. I didn't know where I was or what had happened. It took another few days before I even could associate a date with my world. By the 25th I had a better grip on the time- space reality. But I literally lost 3 weeks of my life. It was a very strange feeling. More later.
