Good News and Bad News

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

Oh my friends...I hope that you can forgive me for not blogging sooner. So much has happened, and I've been trapped on a roller coaster determined to disable me further with the velocity and ferocity of this whirlwind life of mine under pressure.

The bad news...our dear friend Ed had a major heart attack and underwent a quadruple bypass 7 days later.

The good news...he's recovering nicely at his sisters.

The bad news...we just moved into our new and more expensive home and Andrew's company took away all overtime. I'm struggling and juggling even more to keep us afloat during this time.

The good news...I take it one day, one step at a time and refuse to worry endlessly about all the negative possibilities.

The bad news...I've been very ill with terrible migraines and vertigo.

The good news....At least riding the roller coaster is good practice for handling vertigo!

The bad to our decreased budget I've had to cancel most of my doctor appointments and put my surgery on hold.

The good news....Hey! THIS gives me MORE time to loose weight and reduce some of the high risks!

The bad news...Recently I've gotten a burning tingling sensation in the first three fingers of my right feels just exactly as if I'd laid them on a hot burner...even holding a cold glass they continue to burn and tingle. Nerves I'm I having TIA's? Only time will tell.

The good news...Even though I've had to put my membership at the fitness center on hold, I get plenty of exercise cleaning my new home, which I do everyday that I'm not under the covers with an ice pack on my head.

The bad husband's bedside manner and care giving sucks out loud! He just can't deal with it.

The good news...I've taken care of myself all my life, and while I'd love to be pampered and cared for, I don't need it.

The bad news...I don't know when I can come back soon as I can for sure. emoticon

The good news...I'm still on track and still loosing the weight, and looking at this list...I'm still balancing out...LOL emoticon

Thank you for sending me all the positive prayers and your friendship, and forgive me for not being able to stay in touch better. I'll slip in, an old gray ghost as I and blessings, Pami xoxo

    You're doing great! I love the way you are balancing things out with 'good news - bad news'. I'm going to try to emulate you and look at things that way. Finances are getting tight for us also. My son just had to move into our guest room because we can no longer afford to help him so much with his bills. But the good news is - maybe I'll see him more often! I understand about juggling bills - I'm getting to be a master! Sometimes it does get really stressful, though, I know. Keep hanging on - hopefully things will get better soon for you.

    As long as you are able to pick your head up off the pillow and out your feet on the floor each day Pami, that is God's way of telling you that he is there for you. Sometimes we are faced with struggles, it only serves to strengthen us. You can do it, you are strong.
