Mile 1 - Getting Started!

Well I am again on the weight loss train. I think weight loss (or the lack of it) in my opinion can be compared to alcholism in a sense. Now I know that alcholism is a horrible disease; But in the same sense that alcoholics go on the "band wagon" and then "fall off", so do the obese.   But I am more determined than ever to lose the weight and keep it off this time. I am roughly 90lbs over weight.   I went to my family doctor a week ago today for my allergies and was told that I need

Fully released!

Well, I have now been released from all my doctors! I went for my final follow up with my obgyn on the 5th and she said that I was all healed up and that everything looked good. She asked if Lee had given any more thought on getting a vasectomy and we told her that he was having the procedure done that very afternoon. So now that he is "fixed" we shouldn't have to worry about my getting pregnant again.   I admit that a part of me is sad at the thought of not having another baby. We wa

Lost the Baby :(

I lost the baby on 2/22. I had what is known as a tubal pregnancy. They could not see the baby but knew something was wrong. I went in to the hospital on the 21st with the worst pain I have ever had. After doing a vaginal u/s for 2 hrs. and finding nothing; My OBGYN decided she could wait no longer and opted for exploritory sugery to find out what was wrong.   When she got in she found that the baby had implanted in the very edge of my right tube where it connected to the utterus. The tube ha

Emotional Rollercoaster Has Started

Well I'm doing well today. Can't say that for yesterday. I had my 1st bout with emotional crying. I couldn't control myself.   I spent all day yesterday in town shopping for a dress that I could wear to the Valentines banquet at our church this Sat. I wanted something that I could also use for my neices wedding and for Easter (that is if I can still fit in it by then). I went to Sears but they didn't have anything that I particularly liked. I then went to our local Bealls store and discov

The Up's and Down's of Pregnancy

I found out on Jan 27th that I am expecting! We are soooo happy and excited that we are beside ourselves   We sat the kids down the night of the 27th and told them about the baby. They are all very happy. The girls want a girl and my son want's a boy. Typical.     The next day while the kids were at school telling all of their friends we told our parents. I found these little books at the dollar store that had Bible scripture in them (the name of the book was "Light of My Path for Gra

I'm going to give this a try ;)

Well, I'm not very good at keeping a journal but I though I would give it a try. I doubt I will write here everyday, but I will try to as often as I can. For now that's all I have to say. Will try and come back later and type some more. God Bless!   Tania

My Stroke Story

I had my stroke on New Years Day 2004. On Christmas Eve '03 I went to a Chiropractor for the very first time and had my neck adjusted. I had been having neck spasams after having the flu and thought a Chiropractor might help.   After the adjustment I got real dizzy, nauseated and broke out in a cold sweat. I asked if this was normal. The Chiropractor said "NO, but it's probably just a shock to your system" He offered to let me set in the office until the dizziness passed. I knew he was getti

Rehab/Recovery

I came home with a walker but don't have to use it now. I also came home with a shower chair, which I still use from time to time. I also had a feeding tube which was finally removed on March 29th, 2004. I had around 4 months of re-hab and have recovered a great deal. Although I will never fully recover (I don't see how anyone can after going through such an ordeal) I do feel like my life is finally getting back to normal.   This has been the bigest ordeal of my life(that I remember) I am a

My Daily Routine

The following is what a normal day consists of for me:   I get hubby off to work and kids off to school. I then go back to bed for a few hours. When I get up I do my morning chores (ie - make beds, pick up floors, clean off things) and eat breakfast. Then I relax and watch tv for a while or take a walk. After lunch I do my afternoon chores (ie - do some laundry, start dinner, sweep, mop, vaccume)   Throughout the day I get on the pc and check my e-mail, come to strokenet and check things o

Celebration!

I have had many blessings over the past year and I'm sure many more are to come! When 2004 started I never thought I would see my 29th birthday much less 2005. I spent my 29th birthday in the hospital not knowing if I was going to live or die.   So this past Thanksgiving and Christmas were very special to me. I enjoyed them tremendously. My 30th birthday is tommorow and I am very much looking forward to it.   When I had my stroke my hubby and I were trying for our last child. The
