Good Morning.

Well, my husband did get my laptop hooked up with the cable! :o) So, when I'm stuck in bed, I can be on line at the same time as someone else can be on this computer as well. :o) I knew he could do it! :o) My printer is still not working. I've been trying to get it working for 2 weeks now, and nothing! gggrrr! My daughter needs it for her classes....she needs it this week. :o( I don't know what happened to it. And I can't use the scanner on it! ggrrr! My husband even tried to fix it. Well, we all have had a go at it! lol :o)
I can't remember if I wrote about this or not yesterday in my entry. But my daughter and her boy friend took my grandson to Disney on Ice yesterday! :o) He loved it! lol It was Monter's Inc. and he came home with a blue hard hat on and a stuffed Sullivan! :o) Too adorable! My daughter took alot of pictures too! Yesss! :o) So, I try and post them! :o) She also got a little bit of a video as well, and when she uploads it, I'll post it too. :o)

My physical therapist came this morning. And OH BOY!!!! YIKES!!! It hurt soooo bad! :o( She has too use her knuckles now to make sure the deep tissue massage is working. uuuhhh! I cried so hard! :o( But I know it is suppose to help me. I told her that my neuro could get any reflexes from my legs...and since she's a nurse as well, she just said, "uh hu, that does make a lot of sense." But, she isn't allowed to actually tell me anything even if she knows what is wrong with me. When I do my own research, and I show her what I come up with, she will either tell me that I'm getting very close or not say a word and shake her head no. So, I always like to her about certain things. :o) My legs this morning hurt me soooo badly! She just shook her head and told me that yes, my legs are getting worse and I NEED to stay in bed and rest more then I am! She can tell me things after I find things out from a doctor, but not until. I really like her alot. ;O) My home health aid wil be here today as well. :o)

After I got my laptop hooked up to the cable, I was in bed resting, and I had it with me to help my husband. I was able to get on line, and I thought I'd check my email. I couldn't stay on for very long, because my husband still needed to reboot the cable. So, I seen that I had two emails from my best friend! :o) She rarely has any time to get on line anymore at all to even write me a letter. :o) Plus, I haven't seen her or heard from her in so long because she works so many hours! No kidding! Well....she understood what I was getting at in my last entry...I knew if anyone would....she would. I backspaced that entry so many times, just to make sure I didn't write something to hurt anyones feelings,,in the begining of it. When I was talking about I talk too much about certain things and I should have kept my mouth shut about the insurance. Well she understood what I meant becasue she said after reading all of the comments from the previous entry, and everyone said the samething, that it can take up to 1 to 2 to 3 years for Extreme Home Make Over, and it would be a good idea for me to put in a hot tub, well then why would I do that if it would just be ripped out and then I'd be wasting my money! Which is what I was trying to say, but I don't want to hurt anyone at all! Or for anyone to ever think or feel that I am not grateful for all of your help! I am VERY thankful and happy that what ALL OF YOU have done for me! PLEASE know this! Ok? :o) I don't know how to thank everyone ! :o) Gods blessings to all of you! :o) I just hope that you understand what I'm saying. :o) And, if this is and where did you find this out, because this is all new to me. If you can tell me, I'd like to know. :o)
My best friend also told me that she even made me a tape on my behalfe and sent it in to nominate me! I sat and cried! With all of your letters and her tape as well, I had no idea that everyone would do all of this for me! :o) And again, I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart! :o) I honestly don't know how else to thank you all! :o) Keep praying as well! :o)

Today, all I have planned still is to get some rest. Yesterday was pretty hard on me. I really had a hard time with my legs. gggrrr! They just wouldn't listen to me at all! :o) I had to stop in the hall way, coming from the kitchen and hold on to the wall, because my legs all of the sudden went limp on me! :o( My husband ran and got my walker! Then he helped me to my bed! That was close! It scared me. :o(And my husband. He's told me several times that he doesn't like to just sit and watch me die a slow death. And I tell him, that I don't like dying a slow death! LOL Good Grief! What he says he is doing, like puting cable on my laptop, is just trying to make me as comfortable as he can. :o) He's really changed alot! :o) Like I always say, God gave me these illnesses for a reason, and it also could be to help others out with their own life that don't even have what I do, just to learn how to really love and to love themselves! :o)
Just learn to accept! :o) I am and I have! :o) Right now, I'm in a bit of a grieving, but, it's not like it's going to last forever.....I'm already almost over it! :o)
Like having a New Years resalution. One year, I made one that throughout the whole year I would face all of my fears! Like I was afraid of I'm not! :o) That whole year, I focused on achieving them, and I did it! :o) I'm pretty proud of myself for doing that! :o) Every year, I always give myself something attainable for the year to complete! :o) And it's always something positive and something that I really need to work on and acomplish in my life. :o) I haven't made one yet for this year, but I will! :o) And when I do, I will post it! :o) Maybe it could also help someone else or I could do it with someone else! :o)
I really want to make sure to thank all of you for your supportive emails and comments! :o) Yes...they are always supportive to me! lol :o) Gods blessings to all of you! :o)

Hi Lisa. I heard it takes awhile for that TV show from Joey's (My best friend) friend named Steve, who works up in LA in editing. He is a sound editor. Like if someone in a movie is shooting a gun, he'll make it sound LOUDER. Stuff like that.  Well, once he was talking and it came up about Extreme Home Makeover and he said there was quite a wait on that.
I'm sure if there are priority cases they'd rearrange their schedule.  But, he said they've got their show lined up.  This was awhile back, so maybe it's changed.  I don't know.
I wish you luck in this. I think it would be good for you.

I am so glad that you can be on the computer more. I have heard that Disney on ice is great, I have not been to anything like that in a very long time. Get some rest

Good to hear you've had your life made that little bit more comfortable, Lisa.

Glad you can now lay down on line lol. Had problems with my printer/scanner and it worked out cheaper to buy a new one than to get the old one fixed so good luck with that.
All the best

Lisa, I have a scanner/printer you can have if someone can come and get it. It's an all in one, the only thing wrong with it is that you can't scan anything into the computer. You can scan and print or print off the computer. Someone is here all the time since I do child care and am tied to the house.
