I'm Still Struggling With Pain Management
Wednesday, July 24, 2019      5 comments

I've had tons of pain in my life but I'm having a problem getting a handle on this nerve pain. There is no rhyme, reason or pattern to it. One minute I'm comfortable, then I move around a little and am crushed with pain. The laws governing pa... Read more
Better Pain Management Goals Today
Monday, July 22, 2019      5 comments

I want to give a shout out to 1Crazydog, Gaby1948 and Jeanknee for your sage words of advice on my last blog. I simply used poor judgement when dealing with my pain levels. I've simply had so much pain for so long that it is kind of hard for me... Read more
Post Op Day 3
Sunday, July 21, 2019      10 comments

I ate exceptionally well today until I got warm (it was hot and humid until about 4pm today.). When I got warm, my fingers, hand, wrist and arm swelled. This pressed on all of those nerves that were disturbed during surgery (and there were abo... Read more
I Am Now A One Armed Bandit!
Saturday, July 20, 2019      6 comments

No, not a slot machine! LOL. I had my surgery on my wrist/hand on Thursday, July 18th. The hospital had me scrub with a special soap twice before my surgery. No face cream, deodorant or skin cream allowed after the scrub. At least they are m... Read more
Watching Sugar Day #4
Saturday, July 13, 2019      4 comments

My daughter and I did about 10,000 steps when we went to the mall on Thursday. I promised that I would take her clothes shopping for her birthday (it was a month ago). We found some very high end tops for her to wear for work and,,,,they were ... Read more
Day #3 Watching Sugar
Wednesday, July 10, 2019      5 comments

I did very well yesterday! No sweets other than fruits passed by my lips! Today it has been the same thing. I reached for a piece of candy and snatched my hand back. “Do I really want to do this to myself?” I asked. Snatching my hand back w... Read more

Vet Day For Zeus
Wednesday, July 03, 2019      9 comments

Today, I'm taking Zeus, the wonder dog, to the vet for a toenail clip and medication review. He will hate it, as he always does, poor little guy. I will be relieved to have his claws ground down so he doesn't scratch me accidentally. I've nev... Read more
Shall I Dance?
Monday, July 01, 2019      10 comments

It started last weekend. We had birthday weekend, complete with cake. Even though I froze my cake after doing a three day binge, I still ate too much in the following week. I'm disappointed in myself. Am I beating myself up? Nope! Why? It... Read more
The Yellow Bow Is Out
Sunday, June 30, 2019      6 comments

Last week, I posted the picture of the yellow bow on my wreath. My hubby and daughter told me that they weren’t fans of it. That’s a nice way of telling me that they didn’t like the yellow bow. So, I trekked to Walmart then to Michaels, and b... Read more
Trying To Keep Busy
Monday, June 24, 2019      9 comments

As I continue to wait for my surgery, I'm trying to stay busy. I've made a "to do" list and I've done about as much as I can, knowing that I still have 22 days to go. Some things simply can't be done until the week of surgery. This is the po... Read more
Surgery Update

It has been a long haul but I finally have a surgery date with the new surgeon. He normally does his surgeries within two weeks. As luck would have it, he will be on vacation at the end of June and at the beginning of July, giving a lecture. ... Read more
My Plan B In Action
Thursday, June 06, 2019      10 comments

I went to the new hand specialist, orthopedist yesterday. I'm cautiously optimistic. The visit was like night and day when compared with the other doctor. I've found that most specialized doctors have a real ego. As specialists go, this docto... Read more
Activating Plan B
Monday, June 03, 2019      8 comments

It is one week since my surgery cancellation. There is still no answer about when the original orthopedic surgeon will be back in the office, after experiencing a death in his immediate family. Although my heart goes out to him and his family d... Read more
Taking Steps For Plan B
Tuesday, May 28, 2019      8 comments

This morning, I left a message for my hand surgeon's assistant, as I was instructed to do when they cancelled my surgery on Saturday. Taking my own advice per a previous blog about things that are out of one's control, I came up with a plan B t... Read more
