    Hey sweetpea! Looking great! And so glad you are feeling well. I'm a bit better in some ways (maintenance is less a mystery this week).

    Had a Zoledronic acid IV this week (i have them about every 6 months); it was a boondoogle and ended up with exra labs, and looking like they used a sledge hammer and railroad nail on my arms. Feeling slightly better today but it takes about 5-6 days to ease off.

    We are NOT getting any hurricane things other than rain from outer bands with wind this morning. So grateful we sold our beach place at Myrtle Beach, last summer. Our friends from there were on the way to Canada for an annual family reunion. NC has had lots of hurricane stuff the past few years.

    Getting blonded on Monday -- excited. You and Ann2 looks so fabulous, and I'm hoping people won't treat me as quite so fragile if my hair isn't snow white. Then again, working that old lady thing has its graces as well.

    Hugs! Annie

    Thank you! I will look into that program, I think I like it. No, the admin couldn't find me anymore, but one of my old coaches remebers me. I will take it up again, when we return to the Netherlands. We are taking the ferry from Greece back into Italy tonight.

    Is the Weight Watchers program you follow this Freestyle program? I am kinda looking into it. I also found a coach I used to go to, but that was ages ago and it seems WW doesn't have my name anymore. So no chance I will go back as a life time member... So now I am trying to find something online. I know that in the States the newest programs are used, in the Netherlands we have this freestyle thing. Is that the same thing? Then I can find lots of recipes.

    Hi Sraebaer, I’m pleased to report I’m doing a lot better. I’m eating by mouth and starting to be able to take over half my meds by mouth too. Trying to use up my liquid meds. As soon has I use them up I’m gong to try to take all my meds by mouth. I think I will be able to get rid of my tube in the next month maybe two. The doctor wants to make sure once removed I will do good on my own. I’m exercising again. Working on my distance and walking up hills so I can get back to hiking and backpacking and handle distance and elevation. Will start weight training next week. I’ve been doing upper body. Can’t believe how far I’ve come. Can’t wait to go backpacking and have some hikes planned next week. Been out working in the yard, trying to get it back in shape. Can’t believe I’m finally back to the land of the living and feel So close to having this behind me. Maybe we can actually do an adventure this Summmer. My cell is (360)601-7351 e-mail tleaa@comcast.net Hope your having a good spring

    That's a bummer!
    Hope the doctor will describe PT!
    Good luck.
    And as a very wise friend of mine once said: "everybody wants to get old, but no one wants te be old"...

    Hi Sharon! I hope you are well. I have been off for a bit with all the house crap and dog bite but I am back. How are you??

    Sharon, I'm not posting this part about Kristi on the site. She was being moved without her parents, who will have to travel up to Minnesota from Sioux Falls. She facetimed with her closest friends, ws desparate to see her mom and dad before surgery and very scared.

    There is a chance that the infection in the upper spine and neck may leave more damage, as in being unable to have full function of hands/arms.

    I hear from her most days, but expect her to be recovering from whatever they did toay and tomorrow.

    She does not believe it was the result of the sleeve, but rather the stress of the surgery that caused the lupus to flare, resulting in inflammation everywhere.

    She is a fighter, but she's the age of my middle daughter, and she is just such a joy. Truly praying for full recovery for her.

    My condolences on the passing of your mom. Sounds like you were there right up till the end. I'm also a carer for my mom, 88 years old. It always seems like they will be around forever! Blessings to you.
