Helen, Thank you for the prayers. My husband is having his surgery tomorrow. He is not a Christian either.

I have been diagnosed with mutiple autoimmune disorders. While pregnant with my youngest daughter I had RA. When she was about 15 she got JRA. It's a miserable disease and she will have it all her life. Liz

After actually talking with Richelle last night, the doctor told her she has an autoimmune disorder as well as a very large cyst on her left ovary. He thinks she has a blood clotting issue and may need to put her on blood thinners. If this is true, then Liam will need to be tested also. Please keep them in your prayers.

Liz, prayers for Joe, your sister and her entire family. Cancer is hard on the entire family. Also prayers that he comes to know the Lord as his savior.

Prayers for the concerns/needs of all.

Helen, Glad the procedure was a success for Ken.
Terri, Will pray those shots work for you.

I have a prayer request. I found out my sisters ex husband is terminal. He just found out yesterday. He had scans done and found the cancer has spread throughout his whole body. Started in his esophagus, went to his lungs and abdomen. They had been married 33 years before she divorced him. They had 4 children together. He lives alone in a remote area and works for the local bus company driving the handicapped bus. He used to be a school teacher but retired years ago. He's about 65. She was my little sister. She married him when she was 19. She is in Las Vegas for training for her job right now and found out. Not sure how she will feel about it since they had been married for so long. His name is Joe. He seems to be accepting things well, is worried about how hard it will be on his kids. He does not know the Lord. I pray he will find him before he meets him. Liz

Janet, Yes they are. She has to go back to the ob/gyn in two weeks as the doctor's measurements today were off what he thought they would be. Prayers continue for a happy and healthy baby. Will keep you updated on her progress...

According to the cardiologist this morning, Ken's ablation is a success!!! PTL!!! Now waiting to see if it will help stop the swelling and open wounds in his lower leg. Prayers...

My migraines are weather and stress related.

It was not a cortisone shot. I had a cortisone shot about 7 months ago and it helped a great deal .. for about 2 months.

The injection I got yesterday is called "Eufflexa" and it is a series of 3 injections that puts a silicone type material under the kneecap. It takes all 3 shots before any benefits are usually felt but I have had some relief after the first shot.

Before the shot my knee hurt all the time .. sitting, standing, laying, bent, straight .. it did not matter .. it hurt 24 / 7.

Last night and so far today .. it only hurts when I am standing and putting weight on my right leg. It still "clicks" when I walk and that is a very disturbing sound.

Tuesday Oct 6th is the 2nd injection and then Oct 20th is the last one.

I have been very busy with a major home repair/remodel project that DH and I are doing, but I have been reading the post and keeping everyone in prayer. The project is almost finished, and I am back OP with eating and walking.

Wearing a 30 day heart monitor again, and naturally the old ticker has been very well behaved for the 5 days I have had it on. Sure praying they come up with an answer this time around.

Have a good week everyone and if you live in the NE try to stay dry.

I was happy the other day when I bought a 5 lb bag of apples for 99 cents. Today I am absolutely thrilled with another bargain. I needed to renew my home insurance and wanted to check rates for car insurance. I went to AAA just to get a quote thinking they may be high but I was wrong! I saved $313 on my annual car premium and $336 on the annual home insurance and the coverage was better! It pays to shop around when it comes to insurance!

Terri~ I have had a headache all day too. Storms here as well. I know that changes in barometric pressure affect me, seasons changing, etc.

Very cool here and breezy. Had my first therapy today...they were very easy on me, mostly massaging muscles. I have some exercises to do, but have to go out and find a child's size ball to do them....will search tomorrow after work.

Janet~ I do think that would be a good idea...

Re the name of Back Fence 35....shall we start a new 1st October? Seems along time since we did one and sometimes other members join in...?
I checked...we started this one on New Years Day...2013. !!!

Helen, I saw you posted that Richelle and Joe God willing, as expecting another baby....what wonderful news. Will keep them in prayer.

Terri...I had a cortisone injection in my knee a couple of years ago and got immediate relief. Praying you do too.
Is the migraine food related?

SADIE...POOR YOU. YOUR YEAR SOUNDS LIKE MINE HAS BEEN...PRAYING WE GET SOME BLESSINGS VERY SOON.

Terri, I hope your mammogram comes out okay. I had mine last week and got a letter saying all is fine. I am wondering how long it takes for those shots to work you are having on your knee. I know the cortisone ones work quickly but never heard of the ones you are having. Let us know. Praying all goes well for you.

The 35 is the 35th back fence thread. They get too big and a new one is started.

Today is the day .. the first injection in my knee. I don't know what to expect but I am hoping for at least a little immediate relief from the pain and maybe the clicking will stop when I walk. My appointment is this afternoon and I am so anxious to get going.

I am hoping for a lot more of this emoticon afterwards.

Had my annual mammogram this morning. The problem is that I have a lot of fibrous cysts in my breasts and they always want an ultra-sound as well. Thats okay except the cysts are right behind the nipple so they have to press harder to remove shadows and it is very uncomfortable. I am sure that most everyone can agree with this.

We also have some storms moving into our area so I am working on a migraine. I think today would be a good day to just relax.

Hope everyone is well and had a great weekend.

Helen, Glad you made it home safely.
Still warm here. Cooler weather is supposed to start tomorrow. Friday it's supposed to get really cool and rain. I know the last time my husband had surgery it snowed the whole time. It's supposed to rain this time. I'd take driving in the rain opposed to driving in the snow.
Have a great week all. Prayers for all concerns asked and unasked. God knows our hearts and concerns. Liz

I love it when I find a good buy! Yesterday I was out doing my normal Saturday morning grocery shopping. At the 99 cent store I usually can find some good buys on fruits and vegetables but yesterday I found a great one. They were selling a 5 pound bag of green apples for 99 cents!

I am resting when I can....after tomorrow things will slow down a small bit. Seeing Anita Renfrow next week with some women at church, but that will be fun! Also planning on connecting with a dear friend after therapy sessions as she lives so close....taking small moments to decompress and relax.

Cheri, prayers for you cousin Susan and also for your friend Donna as well as for you and Dan.
Thank you Cheri for everything!!! Hope you are able to find some time just for you...to rest, relax and recuperate. What are they going to try to do for Dan's heart murmur? I have had one for years and no one seems concerned about it. Just wondering...

We made it to Ohio safely and enjoyed visiting with my sister and her family last night. Even played a game of life with them. AWESOME!!! Ken is getting ready to go fishing as he says it is perfect weather for it. We will head back home late tomorrow afternoon.

CheriAnn, I don't know where you get the energy to do everything you do. It makes me tired thinking of it all. Don't overdo it. Prayers for your cousin Susan and friend Donna.

I haven't been eating right lately. I'm just so tired from the one medication I'm on. I just grab stuff and I know I shouldn't. I really need to start watching it. I am eating crackers, candy, less vegetables, less fruit. I don't exercise. I'm just wiped out and not doing anything and then my husband trying to get everything done for his surgery next week. The cardiologist office called him today and said his nuclear stress test was normal but his cardiologist is out of the country until next Tuesday and he would have to wait for her to get back to go over it. We thought that meant they weren't going to give the approval to the surgeon but the surgeons office said they have all the approvals and are ready to move forward with the surgery next Friday.

I still need to figure out how to get the dog to the vet. Find out what his problem is. The cat is not getting around very well. He has arthritis really bad. I tried the Cosoequin and mixed it in with his food but he won't eat it. I have things to help him jump up to stuff. A bar stool by the window in the bedroom, he jumps up on the bed and then the stool, to the window. His cat condo to either jump up to his food or he will pull himself up. He is still crawling up the drive wall in the laundry room that is unfinished and going up into the ceiling. The weather will start changing and I know that will bother him because my arthritis bothers me when it's cold. We'll both be sitting with the electric throw on. With the credit cards maxed out I'm not sure how we will heat the house. Don't want the pipes to break but don't want to freeze either. I get hives from the cold and I can't breath well. God will provide. He always does.

Have a great weekend. We will probably stay home. My husband is still on call until Monday so he needs to take his computer with him where ever we go. Then on Sunday there is a motorcycle ride from the Denver metro area up to Platte Canyon High School for the girl that was shot in the head 100 years ago. They have it every year so the highway is basically unsafe to be on. Liz

Things have been crazy here, taking cars in for repair consistently, funerals, rehab appointments for Dan and long work days. I am afraid I have not been eating properly~way too late at night. This was birthday week and so everyone wants to feed me. Dan and I are going out for a steak dinner tomorrow and then Sunday is church, a business meeting, a family reunion and a funeral. Don't know if I can make the funeral.................whew! So much!

I start therapy on Tues. I am hoping that and extra exercise (gently) will help reverse the weight gain. Of course I will have to start eating properly as well. DH can't see the heart Dr. until the 20th...I am praying that his heart murmur can be resolved quickly.

Please pray for my cousin Susan-she just had surgery to repair her esophagus and is not doing well according to my aunt. Also my friend Donna flew out to Houston for her cancer surgery....please pray that goes well!

Well I had better get some sleep! DH just left for work...............stayed up preparing for the family reunion Sunday. I need to get that back on a regular schedule as well!

Ann, Prayers for your work situation and that your home and others in your area are safe. Sorry about your neighbors husband.

Helen, Glad things went well with Ken's surgery. Hope it helps and he recovers quickly. Enjoy your time in Ohio. Hope you have nice weather, a safe trip and a great time.

We are hoping for rain here in Colorado. There have been some fires so all the counties are on fire alert now and have no burn restrictions. Last night that is all I was smelling was like something was burning. Seems we get the smell of smoke at night when the air is cooler. During the day we don't notice it. Rain isn't expected until next week around Tuesday or Wednesday. We're still having some weather that is warmer then normal.

Liz

Ann, hope things straighten out quickly in the nursery for you. Sorry to hear about those break ins. Sure hope your son gets that Verizon bill straightened out quickly.
Ken's ablation went well yesterday. He has a followup up appointment on the 30th. Hope he gets gets news on the results at that time.

We are going to Ohio to spend the weekend at my sisters so Ken can go fishing and relax for a while. The weather is supposed to be nice. WOOHOO!!!

Life is crazy sometimes and today was one of those days that was especially so.

Things in the nursery are heating up once again. The former lead teacher is back to making things difficult once again. All of us, even the newest staff member, have been on the receiving end of her bad attitude this week. She has been doing things to make it appear that the person who is now lead teacher isn't doing her job and telling the director that the rest of of us aren't taking care of the babies needs as we should. Today she was arguing with me in the nap room about something I did with one of the babies. What she was saying was not correct but she wouldn't stop talking long enough to listen to me. Just as I decided to take the conversation outside the nap room so that we wouldn't wake the sleeping babies, she left and closed the door in my face. Of course the talking woke up two babies who were then cranky for the rest of the morning.

Then this afternoon a neighbor knocked on my door. She informed me that her house was broken into sometime this morning while she was at work. She said they had tried several of her windows to get in but she has security locks on all but one. The person found that one window and got in. They stole some of her jewelry and left through her front door leaving it unlocked. This happened between 8 and 1 which is when everyone in the area are gone. I think that whoever did it has probably been watching the neighborhood to see when people are gone so they could do their dirty work unobserved.

When my mail arrived this afternoon there was a bill from Verizon addressed to my youngest son. He has not lived with me for more than 7 years so it seemed very strange that he would get a cell phone bill at my house. I contacted him to find out if he an account with Verizon. He doesn't. He asked me to open it to see if it really was a bill. It was and it said he owed $288.17 which was due by October 10th. It appeared to be a new account. I gave him the account and invoice number and the customer service number so that he can hopefully get this straightened out. It sounds like a case of identity theft to me.

While I was talking to my neighbor about the break in, she told me that another neighbor had had open heart surgery and his prognosis is not good. I had seen a lot of activity going on over there but didn't know what had happened. This particular neighbor and I have not gotten along since before my youngest son was born (33 years ago) so I don't talk with him or his wife. He is the one who would report everything I was doing to my ex. The man is 92 and his wife is 80. Now it appears that he may not live much longer which would leave his wife alone. She is not in good health either. She does have her son and grandchildren that do check on her but she spends a lot of time alone. Not a good situation.

YAY!! I got approved from my insurance company for the injections in my knee for the arthritis. I am so excited and really looking forward to being jabbed in the knee each Tuesday for the next 3 weeks. My daughter-in-law thinks it sounds horrible, but if it takes the pain away and allows me to walk and ride my bike then I am all for it.

Will keep Ken in prayer for his surgery and for God's hands to direct the surgeon.

Happy Birthday! I hope you enjoy your birthday dinner Helen.

Terri, It's all in God's hands. If Melissa and Eric are meant to be parents it will happen. Sometimes it's not when or how we expect.

Take care all. Prayers for everyone.

SADIE, PRAYERS YOUR DOING WELL TOO. AT LEAST THE SURGERY IS BEHIND YOU.

My husband had his nuclear stress test rescheduled for today. Later this afternoon he will go. Hopefully all will go well and he will get the okay for surgery next week.

A friend of mine is working at a credit union in town. She said they are doing a lot of hiring and training so I applied. She said she likes her work and the benefits are really good. If it's meant to be I'll find a way. With my husbands surgeries coming up it can be a little difficult now trying to start a new job.

Cheri Ann, I don't have any trouble with Aleve or Advil but I already take a baby aspirin everyday for my heart so I am not sure I can add another. Tylenol helps some but I worry about taking too much of that too. Ugh.

Helen, congrats on the new grand-baby. Hope all goes well. I wish my son and daughter-in-law could conceive. Eric is so anxious to be a father but Melissa has troubles with her female parts and the doctor told her that her chances of getting pregnant are slim and the chance that she'll go full term with it is almost impossible.

Blessings and prayers to everyone.

Terri, so glad you lost the weight you gained at your son's house.

Prayers for the needs and concerns of each of our sisters in Christ.

I received great news on my birthday (Saturday). Richelle called and she is pregnant again. Liam will have a playmate in May. But will have to wait a while until his new playmate is big enough to play. He will make a great big brother. Just praying that all goes well with this pregnancy and delivery...no toxemia this time.

CheriAnn, I know the car problem bit. So sick of it. Wish we could afford a new car. I had problems with Aleve. I always went back to aspirin. Praying all goes well with your husband.

Terri~ The Ortho Dr. said I could do those injections as well, but honestly at this point my knees are not the main problem. Down the road I will have to revisit that. WooHOo that you are back track weight wise. I assume the migraine is gone..

Switched from Aleve to just plain Advil...just don't like the Aleve. Hopefully my stomach continues to be OK and I will call Dr. and see if I can hurry up the referral. My DH is a bit freaked out wondering if exertion is going to cause him issues....

Down to one vehicle yet again...DH and I bought the part today and he will try and fix it tomorrow. I will be taking him to work tomorrow.

Terri, I hope you can get the injections and they work. I've not heard of them before. It's been a while since I've been to my orthopedist about my knee. I'll have to remember that and ask him about it. I had the steroid shot last and am just starting to get some discomfort again. Not like before. I had gone to the ER and they were thinking I had a blood clot. They finally sent me home with pain pills that didn't touch the pain and said see an orthopedist. He gave me the steroid shot and its been a lot better. Liz

I spoke with the doctor's office about my knee today. My insurance company says that if the office calls and gets "pre-authorized" then I can get the Euflexxa injections in my knee and maybe then I'll be able to walk and exercise. The office said they would call right away and hopefully everything will be in place when I go on Oct 8th for my appointment. I did physical therapy for my knees and had a steroid injection. I also still do the exercises the PT lady gave me for my knee but it just keeps getting worse. X-rays are showing virtually no cartilage around the knee cap. This injection (a series of 3 shots) will replace that space with a silicone type material and make knee movements easy again.

WELCOME BACK SADIE. I HOPE ALL CLEARS UP QUICKLY.

Cheri Ann, I hope your bursitis does not get worse, but does get better.

Janet, prayers always.

Prayers for everyone ... always.

WELCOME BACK SADIE. GLAD THINGS ARE GOING WELL. YOU WILL HAVE CLEAR STABLE VISION IN NO TIME.

CheriAnn, Prayers for you both. I used to get the shots of cortisone. I found out recently they cause the blood sugar to spike. Never knew that before but then I never had a problem so it didn't matter. Hope the physical therapy works for you and the anti-inflammatory meds don't irritate your stomach. Prayers that Dan's problem won't need surgery. Liz

Please pray, went to Ortho Dr yesterday.....I have bursitis, I want to try physical therapy first but he wants me on anti-inflammatory meds full time and I am praying that doesn't mess with my stomach too much. I could have gone with just the shot of steroids, and if the stomach reacts poorly I will have to do that.

Dan has Bicuspid Aortic Valve regurgitation....a birth defect in which instead of 3 valves, one is welded together so he only has 2. It is moderate....we won't know what the treatment is until we see the Cardio Dr. May mean surgery. At least that explains why he is always so tired....runs in families.

Babysat for a church family last night-autistic kids so they wanted someone who the kids knew and were comfortable with. It was lots of fun actually-but later than Dan and I would have liked(yes Dan went with!). The older of the two boys is in our Sunday School class.

Liz, Terri, Janet & Joseph~ Praying for healing for all of you!

Went to the Ortho for my knees and hip. He said I definitely have arthritis in my knees, and I do have bursitis in my hip. He offered me a choice, a shot or physical therapy. My knees actually don't hurt that bad-they just go "wonky" sometimes, so I don't think I need a shot of either "juice" or steroid in them. I chose physical therapy for the hip-if it doesn't seem to be helping then I will get the steroid shot. DH thinks I should have just gotten the shot, but I really want to know what exercises I should be doing, and what I should avoid. They are making sure the insurance is on board first. I hope I don't have a problem

Now we both will be doing physical therapy so it will be hectic trying to schedule both of us several times a week! My birthday is coming up and of course everyone wants to feed me! This Friday my daughter is coming in to go out(so we can talk some...I miss her so much!). Then next Tues my friends are taking me out for supper and pie....then on the Saturday after my birthday DH will take me out for a steak dinner to celebrate. He is still on shift until then so it has to wait a bit so we both can enjoy each others company and he doesn't have to rush home and nap quick before going in at midnight! My girlfriend gave me some money for my birthday before she left for Houston too see the Oncologist so tonight I went to Kohls and got 2 shirts, a pair of pants and some intimates. I have gained some weight since chemo with this hip and not being as active so these should take me thru the birthday season and be more comfortable. I so need to start losing again!

Cheri...I think it was Joseph's 1st course of antibiotics that started affecting his immune system, and then compounded by the second when the candida really took a hold. Thankfully his mouth is starting to look better but he still doesn't have much taste. My mum used to get candida from inhalers like your dad.

CheriAnn, Hope you are having a more restful day today.

Terri, Glad you had a good time with your son and daughter-in-law. Sorry about the stress and migraine. Feel better soon.

I just got back from the new GYN. My lichen sclerosus is worse. Lots of scarring and bleeding if I'm touched. She gave me the corticosteroid ointment to use again. I go back in two months. It's an autoimmune disease. I have others. Maybe that is why my CRP is so high.

Janet ~ I do know my Father is prone to those yeast infections in his mouth, as he has an inhaler for his COPD and if you don't rinse your mouth out well after you use them you get those as a consequence.

This was a very long day....dog walking, work, errands, gardening, I am really tired. I do hope tomorrow is an easier day...but then my house has suffered with my hectic schedule so I need to pay some attention to it.

Liz....Joseph is still managing the back pain with low dose morphine patches. He's waiting for an orthopedic appointment too. We've both just had chest infections and had to take 2 courses of antibiotics...we don't feel like they are clear but don't really want any more medication. Joseph ended up with terrible candida in his mouth which he also had treatment for.
Maybe because our weather has been so wet and damp it's affected us this year?

I am back from my son & daughter-in-law's house and I had a great time. I gained a few ounces, which surprises me. Not that I gained but that it was only a few ounces. Well, I am back home and eager to get re-started with my plan for food and exercise. I will catch-up with everyone a little later.

CheriAnn, Prayers for all. Don't worry too much about the leaky heart valve. My mom has had one for years and she is 87. Most of the time it's no big deal. You sure wore me out just reading everything you did. Don't overdo it. With my husbands surgery I need to get a vet appointment made ahead of time so he can take the dog in. I can't lift the dog into the car and he won't get in voluntarily. The cat is due too. He's another one that is hard to get into the kennel without putting up a fight. Sorry people don't talk to the other secretary enough. You must do a wonderful job and they know they can count on you. Sorry about the allergies on your dog. I know several people that had Mesothelioma. I grew up in the town that manufactured the stuff. We always had a film of ash like stuff in the mornings. A lot of my friends mothers and fathers worked in the factory and they died from it. I hope they can help your friend. I was checked for it when I saw the pulmonologist this year. He said I was okay. I have a followup appointment with him on October 7th. Take care and don't overdo it yourself. You don't want to end up sick. Liz

Things have been a bit crazy lately! Thursday we did the fair and then DH worked on the truck until late and wanted me to help him. (We were able to get my vehicle back from the shop though) Didn't eat supper until almost 8pm! Friday were Dr and Vet appointments, DH has a leaky heart valve-don't know what they will want to do about that. Church members texting me while there wanting me to put things on the church prayer chain(the other secretary was in the office, I don't know why they did ask her..) so we had to run home after the appointment and do that from my home computer, my phone won't allow me to bring up the prayer chain address list for some reason. Then some yogurt for lunch and to the Vet. Seems my dog either has rampant allergies or an autoimmune disorder. So we had to go get special "one protein" food that had to be either duck, rabbit or venison. Lots of pills and money later, we came home - I sure hope it all works.
Today was a brunch at church and then I worked on Sunday School and secretary stuff for a bit-after that I rushed home to bring Dan something to eat as he worked thru the night....then to a wedding shower. I got home, sat on the recliner and promptly feel asleep. Now to go back to bed so I can get up early for Sunday School tomorrow.

My friend Donna is flying to TX Monday to see a Dr. about an operation for Mesothelioma. Please pray that God leads her to the right Dr. and the right procedure and wisdom for those involved in her care. After the operation she will have radiation and chemo and then when that is all done they will begin to treat her for the breast cancer that has come back as well.

Maureen, Sorry about your problems. I was on the beta blocker for irregular heart rate and PAC's but it caused me to become diabetic and was making that even worse. My new doctor put me on just a blood pressure pill. Now I'm having a lot of palpitations. When I take my blood pressure with my machine it even shows the irregular heart rate. It's been getting more noticeable since I went off the beta blockers. It's very constant but my heart rate isn't up. It's very annoying but I was told it's nothing to worry about. I go back on October 20th to see what they want to do. The nurse has been trying to get me to come in and see her before then because my blood pressure drops low at night. I don't feel dizzy or anything. Just feel my heart having extra beats. At least it's not like they were where it woke me up and took my breath away. Sometimes it will just stop and then it starts up again and lasts a few days. I've had it before and was told they aren't harmful. We'll see. Hope yours works out for you and you don't get any side effects. Liz

My palpitations got really bad Wed night, not just irregular but heart rate so high I couldn't count them so went to the ER. Of course back to normal rhythm by the time I got there,but the rate was still 107 so they gave me a beta blocker which did the trick, same med as the cardiologist suggested I might try. I didn't want to but decided I guess I have to, started it today. Hopefully it will work, I see the cardiologist in 4 weeks

SADIE, I'M SURE YOU DID FINE. LET US KNOW WHEN YOU CAN.

My husband came home today and informed me he changed his surgery date. Instead of September 25th he is having it on October 2nd. He said work conflicted with the date because he is on call. He never asked me if it conflicted with anything I had going. Of course that is not his way. It's always him first, then everything he wants. I come a very far last. He is supposed to be in the hospital for 4-5 days. I happen to have a doctors appointment on October 7th. 5 days after. When I made the appointment it was the soonest I could get. 3 months in the future. I don't see why he couldn't switch his on call with someone the week before. I'm tired, frustrated and not looking forward to it all. He said the doctor told him he needs to get clearance from his cardiologist and pulmonologist. His heart surgeon said he can do the surgery on his lungs in December. So as far as it goes, I'd better not plan on anything and I hope it doesn't snow a lot like it did last year when he had his open heart surgery. The weather forecasters are calling for a heard winter because of El Nino. In fact they are expecting snow in the next couple of weeks. It has already snowed higher up and we've had frost. Liz
