DAY 252 Forced to Rest

Hi Journal & Friends,

Thank you so much for the nice words and get well blessings. :-)

In answer to someones question, sorry to say I'm actually worse... didn't feel like that was possible.... but I didn't want to keep whining about it. 

Having different 12 different side-effects... ridiculous!

The one that has flattened me most, it caused my congestive heart failure to flare up... after 4 YEARS with no symptoms.

So... in order to just breathe... must stay very still and very calm. Hopefully the meds for CHF will bring relief soon.

Now, the blood in my urine... that's another story... was hoping they would say don't take any more. No such luck...

I'm not so strong as you think... I cried when they said I had to continue the pills til next Wed...

So today, I wanted to see happy pictures that Jim took at a Balloon Fair. :-)   (can click pics to enlarge)

Enjoy the Journey... soon,

Oh Loretta - I am so sorry that things are not improving. Trust you to leave us with smiles though. I have always wanted to experience a Balloon Festival I LOVED those pictures.

Hang in there - feel free to whine and complain all you want -- I am here for you (ok when I am not working.)

That is so sweet that you checked in so we wouldn't worry. Having said that, don't feel obligated to...because it sounds like you need to rest, rest, rest. Wednesday will be here soon and hopefully you will start to feel better after you are off the pills. Take care.

oh man chica, stay still and don't move. Hugs. I hope you get b etter soon. Wish I could come by and visit.
Take it easy though. I will be praying for you.

WOW, girlfriend! IF you want to 'whine,' we want to hear it. You have every right to complain more than a little. Heck, you'd be weird if you didn't want to complain. Since you aren't numbing yourself with food, typing out a few things might make you feel better. At the same time, if it's painful to type, forget that. :) We're your friends, and we're here to serve whatever purpose.

Only you, Loretta, would update us on how you're doing and then post beautiful, vibrant, happy pictures. BIG HUGS!!! The sun balloon is by far my favorite. Thanks for sharing!

I want you to know that you've been in my thoughts a LOT lately. Thank so for giving us the real update. You're a star, Loretta. <3

Oh, that just stinks! I hate medicine. You're having a REALLY bad run with this. I'm so sorry and have been praying for you all day.

(CHF is awful! and scarey. Hate that.)

Don't you worry about the challenge goals, you just do whatever takes the best care of you right now.


The Brown Recluse said...

It won't last forever! Wednesday's coming...I'm so sorry you're having to deal with all this.

Thrice Blessed said...

Sorry things aren't going well for you.. :( You'll be in my prayers.

Nancy said...

Loretta I dont mind if you whine especially if you are actually sick!! Its not whining when you are a sunny person the rest of the time, and when you actually have some problems. Tell us so we can pray for you.

I'm hoping that things get better for you. Looking at those pics would make someone feel better - it seems that hot air balloons make everyone stop and enjoy something so simple.
