Ok, now today.....On Wednesday agter my appointment, I went to Click Camera in Troy. They had an add from someone selling a Minolta Maxum 7 with the lens and flash and all the original boxes and manuals! All for $250.00! The lens costs more then that! Wow! My mom wanted to go look at it, and I now have the camera that I've always wanted! YAy! :o) I have a lot of reading to do to know how to use it! And it's only 4 years old. Not bad. :o) So....my Home Health Aid will be here very soon so I need to get going! I'm really going to need her help today. :o) I hope she's up to it! lol :o)
God bless everyone, and thank you for your comments. :o)

My daughter and my grandbaby is here spending the night. Her wrist doesn't seem to be getting any better. I got up at 1:30 tonight. :o( The pain in my back is really bad and it gave me a haedache. So I had to get up. :o(
I wrote everyone about trying to get all of the pictures that I had lost when my computer crashed...so far nothing yet. :o( It's hard to lose something that means that precious to you. But, my life will go on. :o)
Thats all for now. I have two MRI's this morning...gggrrr! I'll see what they will show. :o)
Thank you for the comments and God bless you and Gentle hugs. :o)

My daughter's wrist seems to be feeling better. And thats good. My son's face is looking a bit better....just wish he would have went to the er to make sure that nothing is broken. His right cheeck bone and his nose still looks bad to me. :o( At least he is able to see out of his left eye now. Whew!
I'm still having some problems with talking. I don't get it. It just seems that it takes so much energy to talk. Like I'm using too much of the muscle in that area. I don't know. My swollowing is still the same, I still choke a lot. Maybe it has something to do with the multiple sclerosis? I have no idea. I still don't know anything about it as well as much about the fibro. It's all starting to run together to me, if that makes sence? My physical therapist will be coming this morning. YAY! :o) Maybe she can answer some of my questions? Tomorrow I have to go get more MRI's done. Oh boy! :o) Hopefully they'll show more stuff for the doctors. :o)
Other then my physical therapist coming today, I don't have any plans. All I want to do is get some rest. My body really needs it. Soooo, on the note....thank you for your comments and keep them coming! :o) God bless you!

Today is going to be a rest day for me. I really need it. I've been doing way too much for my body. And it's taken a toll on it. I am very weak in my upper body and my lower body. I feel so limp and very weak. So I'm relying on my back for support and it's in a lot of pain as well....so thats not helping very much. Geesh! I really had fun though yesterday with my daughter and grandson! :o) Boy is he a handful now! Yikes! lol :o) My son's face is looking a bit better, but he says it is in a lot of pain. :o( He told me that he has learned a vaulble lesson. I'm so glad. :o)
My Home Health Care person comes today. I'm reaaly glad because I need the help today! :o)
Thats all for now. Please keep the comments coming...as they do help me not feel so alone in this. :o) God bless you! :o)

I just got a call....my physical therapist is sick and won't be coming this morning. I hope she feels better. :o)
I has such a great weekend! My husband and I babysat our grandson overnight on Saturday! YAY! :o) and boy is he a handful...lol! :o) I can't wait to be able to do it again! My daughter and my grandson will be spending the night tonight because tomorrow is laundry day for her. I can't wait! :o)
Everything went great over the weekend. My husband was measuring the doorways and outside to start building me a ramp, and to put little ramps on the doors to make it easier for me to get in and out of them as well. :o) Next week he's going to start on this project! :o) It will make it so much easier for me. :o) Our back door is the hardest for me to use because of the doors. And those are going to be the ones that will be started on first! Yes! :o) Things are really falling into place lately! :o)
Today all I have planned is to rest in my bed and do some reading. I need to get the rest I lost over the weekend.....I didn't sleep Saturday night. lol I slept Friday night and last night! Yikes! so...I really need to rest my body up! :o) I looked like a walking zombie! lol I could barely even speak! I missed the yearly Lady's Auxillary Dinner yesterday. :o( They understand. I will go next year. :o) (I belong to the Troy Eagles) My best friend went, so she will let me know what I missed. :o)
I have been thinking for awhile now about something that I'd love to have. I know, this is a "want" and not a "need." But I was a model a few years back before I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Now, I would love to be a photographer! I absolutly love to take photo's! Of course my family and friends know that! lol :o) My best friend bought her ex husband a 45 mm camera with almost everything that you could get for it. I would love to have a camera like that one! It takes great photo's and is the one that would be the best for me. It cost her a lot of money, but that is a dream of mine....to be a photographer! :o) I know it probably sounds silly, but I want to be on the other end now, and take photo's of my grandson! :o) I'll put that on "What I want for my birthday" list! lol :o)
I have all of my needs, now I have a "want!" :o) And thats it! :o)
We have a winter storm warning out for today. Geesh! And today is the first day of Spring! Thats Ohio weather for you!
Well...I've chatted enough for now. Thank you for you comments and please keep them coming! God bless you all! :o)

I couldn't have asked for a better day! I had time alone to do some things that I've been wanting to do. Like pick up my bedroom a bit. :o) Thats about all I can do. LOL :o) I finally recieved a Bible carrying case that I had ordered awhile back. It's so beautiful...much prettier then the one I had. And a cross sticth pattern of a Cross...I can't wait to start that. :o) I read some of my favorite Psalms! That really uplifts me!
My best friend came over. And her daughter...which is my Home Health Care came from 2:30 to 4:00. :o) It really does help to have her come. Thank you "E!" :o) I rested my back, hips and legs as best I could as well. They were really hurting pretty bad yesterday. Ouchie!
In the evening...my daughter and my grandson came over for a few hours! :o) I had a lot of fun! :o)
Soooo...my day was great! :o) Just the usual pain. Starting to get used to that...don't know if thats good or bad. lol :o) You do what you have to do to get by in your everyday life. :o)
Since my computer crashed a few weeks ago, I lost all of my pictures that I had on here of the day my grandson was born...plus more of him. So this morning I emailed my daughter's dad and step mom to see if they could email me the ones that I sent to them, and the ones that they might have. :o) This time I'll back them up so I won't lose them ever again. Whew!
This morning, a few things that I had ordered for my duaghter's birthday finally came. :o) I can't wait to give them to her. :o)
I guess this is all....Have a great day and God bless you. Thanks for any and all comments. Please feel free do leave one. :o)

My daughter called me yesterday morning asking for me to come over. Of course I did. :o) My grandson was crying and had a fever. I prayed before I left for him to heal. When I got there, I held him and his fever went away and he was right back to being himself! YAY! :o) What it is, is he's teething again. He is getting his upper teeth! :o) It looks as though it could be 3 or 4 of them! Yikes! My daughter and I spent the day together talking and having fun together once again! :o) I felt our closeness back again! YAY! :o) She wanted to let me know that she had been doing a lot of thinging on her own and had come up with a lot of the things that were told to her by this evil person didn't pan out to be true! She had to realize that and see that for herself..nothing I could do or say would convince her of what I had already knew. So...she really wanted to come over to talk to my husband as well about a few things! :o) It was great! I had put this situation in God's hands, and He took care of it! :o) As a friend of mine told me yesterday....I must be on the right path for evil to keep testing me! Thank you for reminding me of that! :o) It is so true! But....the evil didn't win when it came to my family! Yessss! :o) My husband is feeling better with his blood pressure. :o) which makes me feel better. :o) The truth will always come out some time or another no matter what! :o)
I went and got my blood tests done early yesterday morning. They told me that I needed to schedule the MRI tests myself. I thought that to be odd, but I came home and done just that. So, as soon as I hear back from the neurologist, I'll know when the appointment for those.
I slept pretty good last night. I got up at 3:00, but I actually had no interuptions while sleeping. :o) My mind and body are so exhausted from the trials I've been going through. Whew! And knowing that thins will be back to normal in our family helped as well. :o) I am very sore and in a lot of pain, but I will manage. My stress level has gone down considerably!
I want to thank you for your comments and support through all of this and God bless you! :o)

I need to release all the bad and unhealthy things and relationships in my life! My nerves are totally shot! I have a migraine on top of it all.
I just found out something this morning that has really upset me! If I had known this...things would have been very different!
If anyone has something to say to me PLEASE do NOT leave any nasty comments in my journal! Write me a letter or give me a call! I will NOT tolerate it anymore!
I have put all of my problems in God's hands and I know I will be ok.
I need to start thinking of me and not everyone else for a change! And I don't think that thats a bad thing! And if anyone does not like what I have writen in this journal...too bad!

Ok.....I read my Aunts Journal that she has as well. (my mom's sister) I found out through her journal that my Uncle has prostate cancer! :o( I'd like to know why my mom, me, my sisters were not told of this?! Why only my Aunt and possibly her family?! :o( That really hurts. At least "I" will now let my mom and my sisters know this! :o( When someone has an illness in our family, at least I let everyone know. :o( I'm very hurt. And very worried as to how long has he had this and what will be done. :o( I want to thank you for "not" letting us know! :o(
My day yesterday went well. I took a long nap. My body was exhausted. My grandson is still not feeling up to par. But is feeling a bit better. It was good to visit with my daughter and her boy friend as well. My son and his girl friend were in and out all day. I should be able to visit with them today a bit.
Thats all for now......I'm still feeling overwhelemd right now. Plus I feel even more like I'm still in a glass box....now I'm being ignored by other family members. Thanks. God bless you all....and my prayers will be with my Uncle!

Last night my sister, best friend and her daughter went out and had fun! :o) YAY! About time! :o) It really felt good to get out of the house. It was well needed for all of us. :o) We went to a bar that her daughter goes to...LOL...I think we might have been the oldest ones there except for the bouncers! :o) It was still a lot of fun. ;o) I'm surprised we didn't get our hands stamped senior citizens instead of over 21! lol :o) And I am the oldest out of all of us! :o) It was fun to watch the kids dance and have fun as well. :o) It was the first time that I've been anywhere like that with my cain. It went well though..Whew! :o)
I didn't get much sleep, because of my back killing me, so I really need to get a nap in. :o) My daughter is bringing my grandson over some time today for my sister to watch while she and her boy friend go out for awhile. :o) I can't wait to see him. It seems so long since I have. :o)
Well....thats all for now. God bless you all and thanks for your comments. :o)

Yesterday was not a very good day at all. The testing took a lot longer then expected. ggrrrr. I was so drained and weak by the time I got home since I had gotten up at 12:30. I didn't have a nap. Within the past couple of days, I had only a few hours of sleep. I can't even begin to describe the pain that I'm in. :o( My physical therapist is coming this morning and I know it's really going to be very painful.
I'm also in pain for what happened last night. This pain isn't physical. My husband came to me and asked me if we should give the puppy back to the people we got her from. I didn't know what to say. :o( We talked for awhile about how much work she is on me and how I haven't been able to get much sleep. :o( I cried so hard. :o( We both realized how much we have forgotten how much work it is to take care of a puppy. This was a very hard dicision to make. :o( We went ahead and called the people and they told us that there was a family with children that had called them wanting one of their puppy's, and to call them to see if they would like to have her. The family's other dog just died of cancer and the woman was delighted to have her! My sister took her to their home and the children were so happy to have her! :o) My sister cried to see their happiness. That made my husband and I happy to know that she is in a good and loving home. They wanted to exchange addresses so they could send us photo's of her growing up! :o) How wonderful that will be! :o) I felt so bad about not being able to take care of her and now she is in a home that we all are very happy about! :o)
Last night my daughter was calling me about my granson. He hasn't been feeling well for the past few days. She took his temp. and it was high. Of course I was freaking over that as well as the dog situation! I told her to take him to the ER. Her boy friend got the night off of work to go with her, and my husband went as well. I asked for them to keep calling me to let me know what was going on. My daughter had called to let me know that his fever had went down. I was very relieved! Then about 8:15 I started to feel as if I was going to pass out from exaution! I had to get to my bed! Thats the last I remeber and I got up this morning at 5:45. I had slept that long! It's been a long time since I had this much sleep! :o) What a night it was! :o( I woke up to a note on my desk telling me that my grandson has an ear infection and is teething, and has RSV. I'm so glad that he has a doctors appointment for today. Whew!
I hope that today will go a bit better then yesterday did. My sister and I really need to relax. She went with me to the hospital yesterday while I was having the tests....so she is exhausted as well. And with all of our emotions going from up and down all night last night.
I wish everyone a great day and God bless you all. Thank you for any comments that you have given me. :o)
