Cold and Damp

well today is cold and damp and i can't seem to get or keep warm. i hate weather like this. i am wanting to put my plants outside and some of them need replanted, but it's going to be so cool at night this next week, i am afraid they'll die. so i guess i will wait another week or so and see if the warm temps stay warm.

saw my podiatrist today. my fractures in my left foot have pretty well healed. however, my arthritis is worse in both feet. so i am getting new shoe inserts to help with that. they are casting my feet next friday and then i think it takes a couple of weeks for them to be made. hopefully this will help my feet to not hurt so bad. they have been bothering me alot lately, other than the fractures.

am trying to get our mothers day stuff done today. i am also doing my moms birthday, which was 2 weeks ago. so i hope to get her package in the mail yet today. got the gifts wrapped and in the padded envelope, but need cards. i went to my usual hallmark store and they were gone. all closed up. no notice of them having moved or anything. so i will leave early to go get hubby from work and go to the one over that way.

i am doing well on my new meds. saw the shrink yesterday. go back in 4 weeks when he will probably have to up the dosage on my adhd medicine, but other than that, things are getting better.

i am healing well from my surgery, although still sore on the inside. the incisions look good and are healing up nicely. stitches were on the inside, they will dissolve inside, so that was nice and easier too. the meds that my doc gave me seem to be helping with the pain etc i was having, so thats good too. we seem to have figured out the problem. she suspected i was having spasms in my bladder and colon from the fibro, so the meds she called in for me are helping that. it seems to be settling down too. this is the first time i have had my fibro affect my insides like that. my fibro hasn't really bothered me for quite a while. oh well, as hubby says, i always have to be the odd one.

God has been good to us. we got our rebate check this week just when we needed it. He always takes care of us even when we aren't aware of it happening. isn't God wonderful?

well, i guess thats it for this time. i'm starting to get involved in some of my political things, so am looking forward to that too. can't believe it's may already.

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there. May God bless you all.

Beautiful Day

It sure is a beautiful day outside today. The sun is shinning and it's nicely warm with a small breeze. I will probably go for a walk later.

I am still here. Last week was a hard week. I was still hurting from the surgery and depressed. But am feeling better today. The incisions are healing well and am able to tolerate jeans etc fairly well.

The meds that my shrink put me on seem to be helping. My head seems clearer and I can concentrate a little better. I have tried to read a little, but its just a few pages at a time right now. The hospital had me so doped up there were things I don't remember for about that month that I was on them. And today I drove for the first time in a while.

We haven't been back to New Life yet. I just didn't feel up to it these past two weeks after the surgery, but I am intent on getting there this sunday morning. We want to see what their sunday morning service is like and if it is any different than their saturday night service. Then we will try Grove City Nazarene for a couple of weeks and see what we think. They also have saturday night and Sunday services.

I think hubby would prefer the saturday night services so he has two full days off. He works such a weird schedule that getting up for church on sunday morning isn't really giving him one of his days off. So, we will see what we think.

Am going to try to do some things around the house today. We'll see how much I can get done. My energy is still a little low and not quite where it should be just yet.

Well, I guess thats it for now. Just wanted to write a hello and let everyone know I am still here and ok.

Have a Great Day!
