Hello All

I am glad to hear that everyone is doing really well with their diets and exercise. That is just great, Keep up the good work all.

Welcome to the new members. We are happy to have you.

Mushka has been shedding for about a week now. He is almost done I hope. He doesn't like to be brushed so we pick him. Almost like plucking feather on a dhicken. It works great, but there is so much of it. I can fill up paper bags all the time in one day. With him being a husky they do have a lot of hair to shed.

I have done a blog so that I can keep you all updated on what is happening with my leg. This one consists of 2 days because I was not able to put one up on Wednesday.

Thank you all for all the prayers and well wishes.

Hope everyone is doing ok and staying cool..

Hope everyone can enjoy their weekend.

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Walked again this morning. Very proud of myself for walking 3 times while on vacation and I plan to walk again tomorrow before we leave. I've also done good with my eating - and that's hard on vacation with an Italian family that makes a new desert every day.

I saw a picture of myself that my husband had taken and I've been struggling with it ever since. I thought I was doing good, because i had lost 13lb, but after seeing that, it's hard to have hope.

But I am proud of the 3 mile walk I took this morning with my husband.

Hello everyone,

DOT.....I hope that your feeling better today.

Our high today is suppose to be 99 degrees with the heat index making it feel like 110. Yuck!! I hate summer!!

I have a few errands that I have to go do today, but they will be short, thankfully.

This afternoon a friend from church will be coming to get my adult disabled DD to take her and her two small sons bowling. I've not told my DD, as I want it to be a surprise.

Take care and have a great day everyone.

Hugs,
Starr

Hello All,

Thank you so much Peggy. I really do appreciate the prayers. I think things are on the mend but I am not sure yet.

Today our temps were in the 80's. That is a lot better than the upper 90's that we have been having. Finally the humidity has dropped too. That is a big change.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day,

Best wishes to all!

Hello All,

We have an Artisan well and a septic system.

Today we are in the highest heat and humidity that we have had so far. The national weather service issued a sever heat warning. It is suppose to be really bad for small children, elderly, and those that have a breathing problem. They told everyone if you didn't need to be out in it, don't be. Stay inside in a place where it is cooler. Our temp right now at 5 PM is 96 still. It isn't going to cool down very much tonight either. Tomorrow it is suppose to still be hot and humid but not as bad as today. We are going to get some cooler air on Sunday. I am very happy about that any way's.

Today I had to go do some shopping after we went to the Wound Center. I really didn't feel like doing it but we needed some stuff to be able to have the cookout on Sunday with my daughter and her family. I am looking forward to seeing the grandchildren. It took us about 4 hours in order to get everything that we needed. I was really happy when we got home. We had left the ac on for Mushka, and I was glad that we did. It was nice and cool.

The doctor at the Wound Center said that he thinks that the infection has gone away, but there still is some kind of a skin thing going on. It is getting lighter though. I am happy about that. He did still wrap it and I have to go back on Wednesday. I am thinking that he might try me just wearing my compression stockings and see what happens. I am a little afraid to do that, but I guess I have to try and see what happens. After all I am suppose to trust my doctors and everything that they do.

Hope everyone can enjoy and stay cool.



Best wishes to all!

The local water company that supplies you can give you a report. If your pipes are not old, and you have city water, I would watch what this guy says. Some water companies in areas may lend a test kit. Call and ask them,, all they can say is yes or no.
Good luck on your cellulitis.. one of my coworkers has it on her lip/chin!!

Hello All,

Thank you so much for all the support and prayers. I don't know what I would do without you all. You do mean very much to me.

I have to go back to the Wound Center on Friday for my Cellulitis on my left leg.

The other day there was a guy who came to our house and wanted to test our water for free. He was selling water and air filtration systems. Scott told him the other day to come back today at 1 PM, so he did. He did all kinds of water tests for every impurity. 3 hours later, after finding that we had Arsenic and Nitrates in our water, he gave us the info on how much the different systems cost and the variety of ways to pay for them. He told us that we can go on the website to see all the info if we wanted. He left us his business cards and told us to call him if we decide to get one. He also did an air test and told us that the air was really bad and we really need a air filtration system that will do the whole place. We told him we had to think about it, and we also told him that our finances aren't very good now. I really don't like sales people, they can actually get a little pushy, and they always talk without taking a breath.

Our temp today is still 95 and it is still 80 inside. I have had the ac on since 6 am. Good thing I did. I hope that you are able to stay cool too.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day and night

Best wishes to all!

Okay, the last two times I weighed in I'm at 200.5. Which doesn't seem like much, but it's under 300 and I am excited about that.

I also walked in a race today. I did a tad better than I expected. I did 2 miles in 38.4 minutes. I expected to do it in about 40 minutes, so that is a little better than I expected. The YMCA 4th of July race is something I've always wanted to do.

It is against the law to tie out any animal in Tucson. They also have laws about leaving your dog in the car during the summer. You can imagine how hot it would get in there in just a few minutes. Those are some of the good laws they have here for dogs. emoticon

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE.

DOT, I HOPE THAT YOUR FEELING MUCH BETTER BY NOW. MY SIL HAD CELLULITIS SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AND HAD TO BE HOSPITALIZED FOR OVER A WEEK BECAUSE OF AND THEN COMPLICATIONS FROM THE ANTIBIOTICS THAT THEY GAVE HER TO MAKE IT GO AWAY. IN THE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE HOSPITALIZATION SHE WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE CELLULITIS, BUT IT WAS BEING MANAGED ON AN OUT PATIENT BASIS. I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT SHE'S NOT HAD ANOTHER ORDEAL WITH IT SINCE SHE WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR IT. BLESSINGS TO YOU DOT. I HOPE YOU GET OVER THAT VERY, VERY SOON.

CARRIE, I FEEL BAD THAT YOUR PUG BABY HAS SUCH PROBLEMS WITH THE HEAT & HUMIDITY. MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOUR HAS A PUG WHO THEY KEEP OUT ON A LEASH & POLE IN THE YARD FOR SEVERAL HOURS A DAY. IT'S NOT SO BAD DURING THE NON-SUMMER MONTHS, I GUESS. BUT FOR HIM TO BE OUT THERE DURING OUR SUMMERS (AS HIGH AS 112 DEGREES WITH HUMIDITY MAKING IT FEEL MORE LIKE 120)...............I THINK THAT IS VERY MUCH ANIMAL ABUSE. IN FACT, I HAVE CALLED OUR LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER ABOUT IT, WHO HAS TOLD ME THAT AS LONG AS THE DOG HAS ACCESS TO A BIT OF SHADE & WATER IT IS NOT CONSIDERED ABUSE OR EVEN NEGLECT. WELL YOU KNOW, I THINK WHO EVER SET UP THE GUIDELINES FOR WHAT IS/IS NOT ABUSE/NEGLECT OF AN ANIMAL HAS NO PETS OF THEIR OWN, DOES NOT CARE AT ALL ABOUT ANY ANIMALS WELFARE, IS VERY INSENSITIVE, HAS NO HEART AND HAS NO BUSINESS HAVING THE JOB THAT THEY HAVE....WHICH THEY ARE PROBABLY GETTING PAID A LOT OF MONEY FOR. ***********I THINK THAT THE MAN/WOMAN WHO SET THESE GUIDELINES UP FOR WHAT IS/IS NOT ABUSE/NEGLECT SHOULD BE STAKED OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A YARD WITH ACCESS TO VERY LITTLE SHADE & WATER IN THE 100+ DEGREE HEAT FOR SEVERAL HOURS.***********BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION~WHICH DOES NOT COUNT FOR MUCH!!

WELL EVERYONE, I HOPE YOU ALL WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL, FUN, SAFE & BLESSED HOLIDAY. I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR OUR FREEDOM.

HUGS TO EVERYONE,
~~STARR~~

MAKE 2020 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

It has been very hot in Tucson. We had over 100 degrees every day in June, and have had temperatures up to 112 this week. Usually the humidity is low which helps, but soon we will be getting our monsoons trying to start. That is when it gets real miserable. High temps and high humidity. This is really hard on my pug, Joey. With his smooshed in face it is hard for him to cool off. The only treatment is to put him in a cool bath and keep him inside. I don't think I will ever get a pug again if I still live here, even though I love the breed.My pit bull and chihuahua have no issues with the heat.

Everyone have a happy 4th of July. Be sure to keep your pets safe at this time of year!

Carrie and Joey

Hello All,

Susan, I want to thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. They do work.

Well on Monday I went and saw my primary care doctor. She looked at my leg and it was still red but not as bad as it had been so she gave me some more antibiotics. I had taken all the ones that the hospital had given me on Saturday. She wants me to go back to the Wound Center so that they can give me the best treatment to make sure that the Cellulitis doesn't get any worse. That appointment is today at 2:00 pm. I am really discouraged that I have to start this all over again. I just pray that it doesn't get as bad as it did last year. So I am anxious to see what they want to do with it.

My primary also checked the blood work that I had done last month. I am anemic, my kidneys are a little high, and my A1c was 6.4. She wants me to have some more blood work in about a month. So that she can recheck the results to see if everything is ok.

Our temp at 6 am is 62, and it is already getting humid. I think our temps are going to be getting high again. We have the possibility of storms everyday. I will most likely be staying in the AC trying to cool down. Yesterday it rained pretty good for the most part of the day.

I hope that everyone has a very happy 4th of July and those that are on vacating too. We might have the neighbors over for a cookout and some fireworks in the evening.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.


Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Dot, sorry to hear about your Cellulitis. It must have been serious to have IV antibiotics. I hope the oral antibiotics help. Try peppermint tea for your stomach...it really helps when my stomach is upset.

Hello All,

My Cellulitis was trying to come back on Friday, well we were on a trip. I kept a close eye on it and then after we were home, on Monday went to the ER to have it looked at. I needed to have IV antibiotics that night and had to go back the next day. It hadn't gotten any worse so I was given some oral antibiotics and told to see my primary in a short time. I will be seeing her on Monday.

The Cellulitis seems to be receding, and I am happy about that. My stomach has been getting nausea since I have been on the antibiotics. I will continue to keep a close eye on it.

I will try to keep everyone updated on how it is going.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!

Yesterday I did some house cleaning and just now got through push mowing.
Dinner last night was great! We had grilled hamburgers, potato salad and pork&beans. Having seen DD three times, it now feels as if she's still here. Her DH is already in Denver, CO and says the smoke is heavy, and they even have ashes from the fire in Colorado Springs. I hope her allergies aren't bothered anymore by that.
I'm just going to relax and take it easy on Father's Day.

Anyone have big plans for this Father's Day weekend? I'm hoping my plans won't put me off track too much, I have a few different functions to go to this weekend. I hoping I can still fit in a walk with the doggie later tonight or tomorrow. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hello All,

Sorry for not being on for a while. The reason consists of a couple of things.

My heart goes out to all those people that have been affected by all those tornadoes. It is really so devastating to have that happen to them. Even those that don't live in the area where they were, is still a stressed place, because you don't know where they are going to touch down.

I have been doing some work outside finally. I am weeding our strawberry bed that the weeds over took last year. We were unable to weed them last year so they got over grown with weeds. It is a lengthy project but I will get it done one way or the other.

Our shed is finally up but the doors still don't close right. Don't know why either.

I have also started to get our hallway and entry way prepared to be painted. I have put a first coat of plaster on them. Now I have to sand that down and apply a second coat. It is going to be an ongoing project for inside work. I have to take my time on doing things because of my disabilities. But I need to do things this year, one way or another.

I have also gained back 2 pounds too. I am trying to do some sitting exercises and watch what I am eating too. I hope that I will be able to get rid of them real soon.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!

Your welcome Susan.

We have not had to take shelter this year, yet. But last year we had to spend time packed into the bathroom....me, disabled DH in a power chair, DD, our 4 dogs & 4 cats. The next day we found out that a tornado had ripped thru our part of the city just 2 blocks from our house. There was large parts of trees, trash & fences thrown all up & down our road, billboard signs were torn from their poles and laying on the ground, road signs were twisted, twisted steel was wrapped up in the top of trees, and several businesses had parts of their walls missing. The steel plant had a big gaping hold in one of its walls, you probably could have flown a plane thru. And the year before we had to sit in the bathroom three different times. That year a tornado took out the better part of a Laundromat, and the roofs of several houses about 10 blocks from my house. Even turned over a 18 wheel semi truck and scattered the contents of it for many, many blocks.

I am terrified of tornado's. Everyone is always telling me that they love Spring. I do like Spring because of all the new colors and new life and more mild temperatures (sometimes), but it is hard for me to enjoy all that when I am having to worry about tornado's all the time.

As a rule the winters (until the last couple of years) are too snowy & icy, summers are like living in an oven turned on 400 degrees, and spring means the awful dreaded tornado's. Fall, for me, is the BEST season in the State of Oklahoma. Although, the past 2 years we have been having to worry about earthquakes too. Which do not seem to have a certain "season". Oh well, tis life...right?

I've been watching on the news & internet that a lot of folks effected by these recent tornado's have gotten their pets back, safe & sound. That's a blessing. I pray for everyone effected everyday. Especially for everyone who lost loved-ones. emoticon emoticon

Ok, well I need to get my DH up & dressed and take care of so that DD & I can go to church when DH's home health care aide gets here.

I hope that you will have a blessed and happy day.

Starr, The one that hit Shawnee did pass over our house (swirling clouds) but no damage. The one in Moore is about 15 miles north of me, but the one that hit El Reno did start coming down to our area but no damage. That week was so stressful for me, and the last one we were glued to the TV from 3PM until 9PM with the neighbors from across the street (single mom and three young boys) who came over to share our shelter if necessary.
The Moore one, our cable went out so all we could do was listen to the radio and that was more distressing and disturbing than being able to see the photos.
Thank you for your concern, and you've had your share of weather up in your area as well.

Starting to get behind and struggling to keep up, but still trying. Struggling at work, Struggling to exercise and eat right and Struggling to keep on track emotionally, but at least I'm still doing it.

Hello All,

Sorry for being MIA. I haven't been feeling like myself. I didn't have any energy to do anything. I have been doing some reading though. Trying to stay on track.


Welcome New Members. Glad to have you. Hope that you enjoy this team.

We have been getting rain since last night. Sometimes it would pour out and then it would slack off. It was still raining this morning when I got up. We are suppose to have showers almost all week. I am not looking forward to all that rain.

After getting the Cortisone shots in my back last Wednesday it has been feeling better some. They don't take all the pain away though. That would be great if they did. I am hoping that they last for a while. They are suppose to last for 3 months but I have never had any that have lasted that long. I am anxious to see how long they do last. I am also happy that the headache that was a side effect from the shots is gone. It lasted until Friday afternoon.

I have lost another pound yesterday. That makes a total of 11 pounds that I have lost since the beginning of April. I need to lose 15 more pounds to get down to 200. I am hoping that I can keep it off now. I am going to have to watch everything that I eat so that I am not gaining it back again.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!


I will keep you all in my Thoughts and Prayers

Welcome FAIRYDOGMOTHER3

First counseling apt went well. We've decided to work on relationship skills, anger and anxiety management and self esteem issues. I'm a bit nervous about it.

I'm also thankful I'm not as crazy and I thought I was. But I still don't know what to do. I found out that no one in the entire company likes my new boss. I thought I was the only one having trouble with her, but now I'm not sure what to do about it.

I know how you feel about loosing a pet-they are so much part of our lives. My dog, Kikiyo (hubby named her after his favorite anime show) whom my mom calls Kiki and I call baby girl is everything to me. Got her in December from the pound.

I can not believe how fast the last 5 months have flown by with her. I still can't get over how her face lights up, short stubby little tail wags and just how happy she is just because I came home safe and sound. But then again it goes to show ya how much she loves me and how much I love her.

I got to take her out on 2 ten minute walks today. Left me huffing and puffin but I've made it part of my weight loss regime to do at least a 20 minute walk with her every day, even if I have to break it up into 2 or 3 parts.

When the sun comes back out I'm gonna try for 3 10 minute walks.

Happy Mother's Day all!

It's been a week ago tonight since I lost my baby girl, Teeny Marie. I miss her SO much.

Yesterday we took our Black Lab to the vet because under her eye and part of her muzzle is swollen. We found out that she has an infected tooth which needs to be pulled. So, I will be taking her to the vet in the morning to get that done. Right now they have her on antibiotics & pain medication.

My youngest DD took me out to eat this afternoon for Mother's day. It was a nice lunch out. As we were coming out of the place there was a van in the parking lot which had a Rat terrier sitting in the drivers seat which looked exactly, color and everything, like my baby Teeny Marie. I wanted so badly to pet him, but he did not want anything to do with me even looking at him, much less petting him. It made me cry to see a Rattie who looked just like my Teeny who has gone to heaven.

This evening my friends adult DD is fixing homemade enchalida casserole for our Mother's day dinner. It sound good. I love Mexican food.

Happy Mother's day everyone. Give your babies an extra hug tonight, because you can.

Hugs,
Starr

MAKE 2020 THE BEST YOU CAN.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Loosing a pet is so hard. We all understand what that's like. I'll be praying for you.

I'm struggling (at this very moment) to not eat just because I can. So I'm sparking instead.

Our Weimie is 6-1/2 years old. We adopted him when he was five and he has always been a very laid back dog. Not at all what we expected from a Weimie but we don't mind. After a call from the vet on Thursday, we started our guy on a trial run of antibiotics in case this is a Lyme Disease flare up. He does seem to be a bit better -- we hear less crying and see the foot down more though he doesn't always bear full weight. On Monday we'll have to chat with the vet again and decide what's next. Thanks for your prayers for Charlie!

Aww, I know how it feels to not be able to fix things for the ones you love. I'll pray for him. Did you say your Weimaraner is low energy? How old is he/she? Our Weim is insane with energy, but she just turned a year, so maybe it will get better.

Our Weimaraner has a sprained leg. Has anyone experienced that with a dog before? We took him to the vet last Friday and she said there was problem with the joints or tendons and an x-ray did not show any deep bone tumors. He's been taking Deramaxx once a day and Tramadol twice a day and, of course we are keeping him quiet (he's not a very high energy dog). I'm just wondering how long before he shows some improvement. He still cries most of the time when he has to move and often carries the leg up. I just wish I could do more for the poor guy.

Starr, thanks.......I did think about that if I paid it off they might raise the limit......Of course, that's kind of hard to think about paying it when it means taking money away from the surgery but it'd definitely worth the try!

I don't think the suggestion of posters is stupid at all. My main problem is that since I'm a pastor, I have to receive permission before I can do anything to raise the money. Have been out of town this weekend. Now, I will work on trying to find the funds for her. I think it might work if the vet will allow people to send money to where she will have the surgery and build a credit.....I can't actually have the money come to me due to my position in my community.

I will keep you posted. In the meantime, I'm going through my house looking for things to sell.
