Pneumonia All Gone
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      16 comments

Today's follow-up appt with the doc proved fruitful in that my lungs are clear. A little bronchial stuff left, and need to rebuild my energy level back up. I'm thrilled to rejoin the human race again. And yes, Morticia, we are indeed amon... Read more
Pneumonia shot-Yes or No?
Monday, March 25, 2013      17 comments

Next year, I wonder if I should get a pneumonia shot? Although I don't get it often,this month has been awful for me. They say that once you get it, you're more vulnerable to pneumonia. So, I'm curious to know opinions on the shot. What do y... Read more
My Faithful, Furry Friends
Sunday, March 24, 2013      21 comments

During the past few weeks with pneumonia, it was touching the way my cats stuck by my side and followed me around like shadows, including waiting outside the bathroom door. What would we do without our pets and their unconditional love? They a... Read more
Perspective on The Doc's Scale
Saturday, March 23, 2013      18 comments

I've never been one to take my good health for granted, and after this bout with pneumonia, I am even more thankful for my return to a healthier state. Even though I've begun to get out a little at a time, I can feel how my body has a lot of he... Read more
The News Saved My Heart
Monday, March 18, 2013      24 comments

I am a person who never (rarely) takes even an aspirin. FOR MYSELF (not speaking for others), I absolutely abhor drugs of any kind. However, I am not silly enough to deny their importance in times of need. That said, last week there were ... Read more
Call The Midwife
Sunday, March 17, 2013      15 comments

I don't want all of my blogs about being sick, so here's my second of the day. I discovered this BBC series on Netflix and absolutely loved everything about it - acting, writing, topics, storyline, settings, etc. (and, oh yeah, the music!) ... Read more
BACK TO URGENT CARE YESTERDAY
Sunday, March 17, 2013      18 comments

First of all, I want to thank everyone for all of the responses on my last blog, messages on my page, and goodies. I wish I could respond to each of you, but I just can't right now. I guess I waited too long to go to the doc. I rarely get... Read more
Pneumonia
Friday, March 15, 2013      25 comments

Okay, I thought this was bronchitis and that I could fight it off by myself since I'm usually healthy. WRONG. Caved in and went to the doc. It's pneumonia. No wonder I'm so worn out trying to fight this. Now I hope these meds work. ... Read more
A New Pic - Dedicated to My Dear Cousin
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      19 comments

It is time for a new pic after 4 years of seeing the happy clown, which was also a recent pic. But, honestly, I thought I'd include my cousin (in black top) who left me recently and I miss her soo very much. (she was very ill with cancer that ... Read more
Smiling for Heart Health
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      19 comments

I heard on the news the other day how smiling promotes heart health. Having always been a smiler, I realized that I was doing less during times of recent loss. Joining the facial muscles team here on SP helps remind me to not only smile, but a... Read more
What Does Your Spark Name Mean?
Tuesday, March 05, 2013      35 comments

Of course, there are those of us who have chosen SP names using our real names and they are easy to figure out. But I've often wondered about many of the names I see on SP and what they mean. Not sure if they are called names or handles or wha... Read more
Checking In To Say Hi
Sunday, March 03, 2013      15 comments

Hi, spbuddies! I haven't been blogging much, but I will try to stop in weekly to catch up. Things are going fine; still enjoying Fitbit, and just ordered the new SP book as I like to show my support as a way of giving back to them for providin... Read more
ANOTHER POUND BITES THE DUST

3 more until goal. I'll enjoy that achievement for a minute, but already know that I'll reset it to a lower one shortly thereafter. Wishing all a wonderful day.... Read more
Maybe I Won't Have to Pay My Bills
Friday, February 15, 2013      21 comments

I was just going to do my online bill paying when I realized that I'll wait for another half hour. The asteroid is supposed to pass by pretty close to the earth; maybe I won't have to pay my bills after all. (smiling) Wishing all a good da... Read more
I Won't Allow "What If"
Thursday, February 14, 2013      22 comments

Yesterday, I cleared away clothing (that is now too big) to put out for pickup today by a local charity. I've done this throughout my four years in this healthy lifestyle change, but this time, a small nagging thought started to creep in. "Wha... Read more
