Just a quick update....My daughter (aged 18 and my best friend) left last week for 5 months away...with a friend. I had a great deal of difficulty with the parting and the days prior and immediately following her exodus. (and an exodus it reall... Read more

I promised a blog. So here it is. A lot has been happening in my life...I've been having all I can deal with and maybe more than that on my plate. You may have noted my "absence" in the Sparkdom. Well, I've been here, Kindof. Still k... Read more

This is probably my longest period of silence on Spark People since I've begun a year ago. But I've been here...floating about' reading a blog or two; commenting rarely, peeking in on the chat forum on the Team for People with Disabilities (hi ... Read more

I have some dreams. And I'm not sure if I could/should turn them into goals....Well, actually they already ARE goals of sorts. At least two of the three are. The first, and most obvious is to lose this last STUBBORN thirty pounds. Hey, r... Read more

Well, I'm here in the hospital...in the bed where I will hopefully only spend the next week....But with me that is always highly unlikely. There are always complications. With this surgery ,there has been a complication even before we began. ... Read more

In case you haven't seen my status, the biopsies are negative...Sonogram shows ...some ovarian cysts but no masses in or on the ovaries... I may need a D&C if the bleeding returns ...they are going to keep me on Provera until I've recovered... Read more

It all began to deteriorate with a dislocated hip a week or so ago,...add to that a major hemorrhage, and I was not up to exercise of any kind. Then came all of the cancer testing and doubt that accompanies that kind of thing and a week or two... Read more

while my life has been "on hold" temporarily for whatever this illness is or may be...my eating habits have deteriorated badly... Most of the time, my small desire for food has not merited the effort of preparing it. I've had little app... Read more

It's a long story...actually about one which was months in the unfolding...but suffice it to say that I'd discovered a mass in my abdomen which has been getting larger and about six weeks ago I began to hemorrhage. And in the past two weeks the... Read more

This morning I was desperate. I haven't slept for longer than two hours in a night for weeks and weeks. Pain has been too intrusive for me to be able to maintain sleep. Today, I feel wrecked....felt so exhausted that I reasoned, if I could ju... Read more

It's funny. Since summer took a walk to the other end of the globe...and it's been too cold and the air has been too full of woodsmoke for me to be able to continue my outdoor "powerwalking" program,...I've been turning to that queen of video wo... Read more

I have been leveled by pain for the past four days. My back and neck have invented new levels of "10"....and all I've been able to do is to sit in my recliner or lie in my hospital bed. I'd recently arrived at the "sweet spot" in my exercise r... Read more
Impressing the Doctor

I went to the hip surgeon yesterday, and I confess, I couldn't resist wearing this maroon sweater dress and leggings with short black boots to the doctor's office. Reason?? When he operated on me in May, my weight was still over 200 and I jus... Read more
New Health, 63 pounds Lighter and 29"+ Lost...1 year later

I was just looking at my "stats" since joining Spark. Of course they are not really accurate, because I can only estimate what I weighed since I refused to weigh myself after I hit 210. My guess is about 220...But I have used 210 as my official... Read more
