  • Thank you for all the prayers for my son & me. I am back to normal. My son made a tiny bit of progress today but I guess it isn't enough for the doctors. They told my husband tonight if Ody doesn't start making real improvements that he may have to be permanently placed on a ventilator. We are going to have a meeting on Saturday with all the doctors to discuss everything. Please keep praying!!

    JustJenn- My birthday was last Friday. I wanted Ody to come home for my birthday but I got to go see him which was my 2nd choice.

    I did dance for 1 song today. :) Have a good night.

    Will definitely keep praying, Angie. Hoping for a big improvement in his condition before your meeting with doctors.

    Hang in there.

    Angie,

    Everything crossed and all my prayers for your son - I have never been in your position and gone through what you are but I have witnessed and supported families through similar situations (i worked as a paediatric cardiac nurse and a neonatal nurse) and have seen the stress and distress they have experienced. My thoughts are with you.

    I'm doing well on the weight loss front this week - no give aways on how much but let's just say it will be more than the 1.5lb I need to lose each week to meet my christmas goal! Doing in excess of 600 calories burnt each day through 30 day shred and walking too!

    Forgot it was Friday, so I'll hopefully remember to weigh in tomorrow. Not expecting a nice number because of not having exercised at all, all the steroids I'm on, and just having a really terrible week overall... :ohwell: I hope I start getting better soon, but last night I still had a 103.8 temperature from this stupid infection, my heartrate was still too high, and my breathing is still more difficult, so no measurable improvement yet....:frown:

    Angie, still keeping Ody in my thoughts! :heart:

    I was so proud yesterday. My first class was cancelled yesterday afternoon. So I had an hour and a half between work and my second class. I originally thought Yay a break, I can just go home and relax and hang out for a while, but then I thought no... this gives me an opportunity to work out. So when I got home 30 day shred level 2 was on demand so I did that instead of sitting. :) Then I did dishes. So I felt really accomplished and to make it feel worth it, this morning when I got up I have lost the 4 lbs. I gained over the past 2 weeks. So now I feel motivated.

    Thanks for all the imput earlier regarding fitting exercise into my aweful schedule. Only 6.75 month til things are back to normal. Have a great Thursday everyone! Tomorrow is Friday!!!!!


    I am so impressed!!!! That is FANTASTIC!! Just remember this schedule isn't forever. Keep taking advantage of the time you have and you will feel GREAT!

    Luvmypj - You are super fantastic! Keep up the good work...I'm working hard to follow in your footsteps!

    WOW - you have to get better!!!!! Does the doctor offer any advise to help you stay on track? Meds and be so helpful and so awful all at the same time. I sure hope you are feeling better soon.
  • my weight last week was 291.6

    Haven't weighed in this week yet.
    I've been a very bad girl lately so don't really WANT to see what my weight is this week. :sad:

    Gosh I don't think I should be posting to you today! During the morning I have written 3 long posts and accidently erased them all. Then I highlighted my first sentence just now on accident and it erased:explode: :explode: This laptop is the best thing I have ever gotten, but it has it's touchy issues.

    Anyway Happy Friday Friends! I am sending wishes of good health and big losses!!!! If you are struggling PLEASE stay in the game!!!! It will come I promise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have some good things to report :wink:

    I am challenged alittle which I hate to say!!!! As you know I love to focus on the positive. Are any of you on the mentopause train?? I have been having signs here and there but maybe I have just bought a ticket!!!!! This week I have not felt like myself. Yes I have had stress but I feel in control and calm about that. I have been light headed and close to fainting, pressure in my head, burning hot face and hot flashes, and alittle nausas. The worst light headed spell I had I was DRIVING on the freeway!!! I was able to exit and rest, drink water and regroup. I am eating and drinking water, BP is OK. I have made an appt with my doctor but cant' see her for 2 weeks. I have lots of work next week and can't be feeling crappy! I also have to keep up with my workouts. I am on a roll and need to keep this positive habit! I rested the day of the big spell. Yesterday I had another one, I skipped my gym workout since that instructor would have killed me, but I took a 2.5 mile walk with big hills to burn some calories.

    I have a couple more stories but will check in later. I don't want to take up a whole page by giving you a novel to read :ohwell:

    GOOD NEWS - CW 186.4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3.9# loss

    See if you stick to it no matter what it will work!!!!!!!! You can do it.... I want to follow in luvmyjp's footsteps!

    Let's go!!!!!! Back to work for me

    Hey Positive Power - yep, I have a ticket on the menop train too. I may have gotten the half-fare because things haven't been really bad (yet). I hope I have a loss like that with MY ticket :wink:

    Jenn & PositivePower, thank you. I'm trying. I'm headed back to the hospital tomorrow AM because I can't keep my fever down at all. An infection + being immunocompromised is a nightmare. :ohwell: I have a busy, busy week with school and work next week so I need to be functional!

    PLEASE PLEASE take care......... maybe a dose of IV antibiotics is all you need. Oh, and rest - but you won't get that in the hospital!

    CW 192.8. Loss of 1 pound... Yippee!!
    I ate terrible today, not sure why but it happened and tomorrow I get back
    On track.. Hopefully my hubby does not encourage not so healthy eating... Some times I swear he does not want me to loos weight... Love him with all my heart!! But sometime he hinders my diet... Oh well no excuses!!! Back on track tomorrow!! Yes I will do this...
    I have about 10 pounds to make my CCC goal and I would actually like to loose closer to 13... That would be a big mark for me I'd be back to pre-pregnancy weight... Wow can't wait!!
    Hope all is well and or looking up for everyone!!! Prayers to you all!!!
