I honestly believe that no medical problem is too small. I look at this journey that I have been on as bumps in the road. I can sit here and feel sorry for myself or I can live my life, no matter how long it may or may not be.
I haven't been to the hospital for 5 months now. I honestly feel like I am out of the woods. I think this poor body of mine had been through so much from Sept. 2003 to April, 2007, that it needed more time to rid itself of all of the meds, chemo, surgeries, anethesia, etc.. My BP is finally down, 117/67. I do what I can with supplements, food and quilting so I don't have to have that many meds anymore. I am only taking 2 meds now and 5 supplements.
Part of our finance problem is the apartments I have. There are three of them. I bought them in 98', a year after we moved here. Right now, there may be two empty ones in the next couple of months. And for reasons unknown, this time of year is hard to rent apartments here. So, that will be $1100 that won't be paying bills. And believe me, we need every cent for bills. But, we have been through so much, I can't lose my faith or belief in everything will work out. Michael took the first year off to care for me. He started a new job, 2 weeks before my last chemo. He missed it as he was in D.C. at a seminar. That job he hung on to for about nine months, commission job, and not due to what he was doing, he never got his loans. Office politics. They layed him off and he decided to change careers, finally. But, no one wanted to hire a 60 year old man until he went to Lowes in June , 2006. Now he is in management. They saw his worth even when he didn't. I had to nag him into applying. He took a huge pay cut, about 60%, but he isn't stressed like he was and he knows he's going to get paid for his work.
Quilting keeps me going. It is the best medicine I could give myself.
I know Huntington Court Methodist Church. If you ever come this way, let me know. It would be nice to meet some of the quilters on this site.
Have a great time with your quilting..
