I am very glad it's Friday! Life has been very busy the past couple of weekends - but this weekend I have no plans and look forward to taking it easy at home. Which is good as I' m having a flare up right now. Triggered by doing too much and by the really yucky weather we've had this week. (Rainy and cold... doesn't seem like spring in No. IL!)
Until this flare, I actually had been feeling pretty well and even had a few nights of really good sleep. I hope to get back there after the flare subsides.
Crocheting and watching the Masters golf tournament! Sounds like a good plan for the weekend!
Wishing everyone a little or no pain weekend - and good sleep!View Thread
I've been making sure I've been taking an antihistamine this week - in anticipation of all the Easter lillies and hyacith decorating our church for Easter.
I've noticed in recent years that I have less tolerance (or more sensitivity) to the excessive odor from the huge quantity of flowers at Easter time at church. The odor is just too much. I also have some allergy type reactions with itchy eyes and running nose. That's why I've been taking the antihistamine - even though it doesn't do anything for the odor. I haven't been bothered with an allergy to flowers before the last few years - and I know that you can develop allergies at any time.
But it just dawned on me that this sensitivity started about the time I noticed some of my first fibro symptoms! Duh! Another fibro symptom to add to the list! (I'll blame the lack of figuring this out earlier on fibro fog.)View Thread
We're finally getting a taste of Spring today and tomorrow with temps in the 50s. I wore a Spring jacket this morning to work - I am so tired of the winter coats and gloves. So even though it was a little cool this morning for the lighter weight jacket I wore it anyway - and had the heat in the car and heated seat on high!
I'm looking forward to a 3-day weekend (vacation day on Monday) - even though it will be very busy tonight, tomorrow ight and Sunday with all the church choir Easter Festivities. Monday will be a relaxation, recovery day from the busy weekend.
Wishing everyone a joyous Easter weekend with little or no pain - and good sleep!View Thread
Margaret, I so understand what you went through in caring for Pickles. My Misty, who died a few years ago, had kidney disease and required medications two times a day and in the last months she needed frequent fluid treatments. (3 times a week) When the vet told me she would need daily fluid treatments, I knew both Misty and I had had enough. Like your Pickles, Misty let me know when it was time to say goodbye. It was a very difficult time.
Fortunately, a few years later Holly found me (in photo) and she has brought a lot of the joy back into the house!
Pickles was blessed to have you and the care your gave him - and you were blessed to have him as a member of your family.
Finally some more spring-like weather here in No. IL. Upper 40s today. Supposed to get into the 50s this weekend. YAY! That should be warm enough to get rid of the last of the snow on the ground around here.
Been feeling OK. Pain during the day hasn't been so bad - but the pain at night has been constant. I just wish I could get more than 4 hours of good sleep!
A busy schedule for the church choir during this Holy Week and Easter Weekend.
Wishing everyone a great day with little or no pain - and good sleep tonight!View Thread
I am so sorry for the loss of Pickles. It sounds like he was a wonderful kitty! You gave him a wonderful loving home and took so good care of him. It is so very difficult to say good bye to our furry family members.
Kitty kisses to Pickles!! and ((((Hugs)))) for you and your family.
