    Default Update


    Didnít mean to fall off the board again. Between work and therapy life is busy!

    Had to chop my hair off on Tuesday. 11 plus inches gone. I miss it. Weíve cut it 3-4 times since like March so Iíve lost a lot of length. Itís still at my neck. Too thin for a cute bob like I want. I have a lot of new growth and just ordered Hair Jazz. Also, looking at wigs. I have clip in pony tails that I hope will still work and hair extensions that I hope I can clip in myself.

    I get fitted for a new chair on Tuesday - Iím too small for mine and this whole thigh gap thing is totally overrated as my phone doesnít want to stay between my legs anymore. LMAO!! #skinnygirlproblems I am excited for a new chair, but not one company has turquoise! My wheelchair guy said donít worry about color - we can fix that later. I sure hope so! I also hope itís not too big when we get it as I still have about 15 lb to go. I donít k ow how much that will change me too much.

    Saw my neurosurgeon and she is happy with me. Still keeping me pretty restricted. She said I might have neuropathy for the rest of my life. The fluid is going down, but really slowly! :-(

    Weight is going down. Almost to the 150s!!! I fear a gain this week since I lost so much last week. 5.4 pounds.

    I donít want to scare anyone, but have been battling a cold for over two weeks. I see ID on Monday for a follow up after seeing my neurosurgeon. Iím wheezing and coughing up junk and have gone through 2 boxes of Kleenex. Coughing up a storm too. I hope it is not pneumonia or bronchitis. If itís not cleared up by Monday Iím sure he will order tests. I also have a UTI with no symptoms other than protein in my urine. My lupus doc is faxing those test results to ID and see how he wants to handle it. I feel great so Iím not too worried. Iím a little run down at times ó- usually on days where I donít get a break from coughing. Cough syrup doesnít help. Ugh.

    Hope all is well my lovelies!!

    Peace out !

    Hi there Kristi!
    It is great to hear from you!
    Great NSV, not being able to hold your phone between your thighs! LOL
    I have not heard that one yet...
    Be careful with the bronchitis/pneumonia thing, that is not good...
    But I am so happy for you with the baby steps in the right direction!
    Keep that up.
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Your positive attitude shines through and that’s such a blessing.

    I love your new ‘do! It’s very flattering. I know what you mean by missing the length you cut off. It took me all this time to grow mine back. I threaten my hairdresser if she tries to trim more than 1/4 inch LOL

    Turquoise sounds beautiful for your new chair. I’d be adding some bling!

    Sending All Good Thoughts and Prayers for clearing up the coughing and a speedy recovery ;-)

    Hi Kristi

    So glad that are able to update us. I think your hair looks cute shorter :-)

    It's Winter here and there are so many colds going around it's crazy. People are coughing all over the place. They seem to hang around too - the colds not the people!

    I hope that you are feeling better soon and that your progress continues.

    Kristi - so happy to 'see' you again! It is always such a blast reading your posts, your positive energy really does resonate from the screen. It encourages me so much. Thank you. I had to LMAO at the 'thigh gap', so over rated! You look sensational.

    Sending you best wishes and cyber hugs!

    Kristi you look beautiful. Sorry to hear about the icky bug lingering but hopefully it will go away soon. Glad to see you around. I had a long hiatus from the site due to our move and all sorts of other craziness going on.
