Welcome! come on in and look around!

I am blessed with being allowed to live on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, WA state. We have large lavender farms here, and a once a year Lavender Festival and Quilt Show. My passion in life is making quilts for kids ages 8-18 who are battling cancer. Once in a while, I even get to make a quilt for myself!! WOO HOO!! Since joining SparkPeople, I have noticed not only weight and inches disappear, but my attitude and readiness to laugh has definitely improved.

I'm glad you make quilts for those children. My son, Nathan had Testicular Cancer in January '09, had surgery and because it had spread to his lymph glands, he had four rounds of chemotherapy. Thankfully, he has been "clean" since then, but gets checked every six months.

I see your Spark Friend, NARNIAROSE2003 is The Motivator of the Day. What an honor.

And I lqqked in the mirror the other day,,, my hiney is FINALLY getting smallah, but my stomach area,,, YO A!1 it HOLDS AND FOLDS A!! I WANT RID of THAT !! The weight is slowly, ever so slowly,, going down,,, it'll go up from swelling,, than down,, up from more swelling (Last weeks infection did NOT hurt it, but the week b4 ,, as it was developing it DID !).

Hi sweet. Sandy, something has gotta give gal. I'm glad in the past accunpure has helped, but now sorry it's not now. Did you get the. MRI appointment yet? My. Dr is freaking out. I went in. Thursday late, one Dr wanted me right into the hospital asap for antibiotics IV, the other one wants to run all the tests himself. So I have the. MRI on. Monday. Than. I meet with him on Tuesday. That's fast. He thought it was the hardware causing the toe to b cherry red. Lol. The first. Dr who. I think the world of, was right,,it was badly infected. No doubt though he is also right the hardware needs to come right out. This probably means ill end up losing the toe. So from. June on its been an experience I didn't need.

I hope they can quickly get to Ur shoulder. Do u think it's the router cuff? Sp.

Hon, I wish with all I can life was a lot easier for you.

Hugs

HI Sandy,,,, OUCHERS for the whirling of ur arm !! OUCHERS I HATE that ! Mine "clicks" in PAIN as its done every 2 weeks,,,, this coming week,,,, if I can make it,,, I have accunpunure,,,,, WOOHOOOOOO !!! I do NOT mind the needles,,,, you feel them slightly when they are being put in,, very slightly. They are NOT pain. My insurance coveres it,, cos a DO does it for me. I know you have ENOUGH appts, but I am not sure if you could fit it in, but if you can,, and like to try it,,, it could well help ur shoulder.
