Spiration Trial Over For Me 7/6/09

I have an appointment to see my doctor on 7/6/09 to find out if I have the values or not.  I really can't say if they have helped or not.  I have noticed that having oxygen to help me through the rough parts of my day has been helpful.   Going over to my son's today for baby Grace's 1st birthday party.  She is going to hate it.  She only wants mom and dad and there are going to be about 30 people there.  Went on a long rode trip with my daughter yesterday and explored some parts of Washington (central western Washington), it is a beautiful state.  She has some baseball tournies coming up and wanted to check out camp grounds.   I have just been struggling getting to work and back.  I have received the papers from the Railroad retirement that I need to fill out and take to the doctor to get my disability claim started.  I have also looked into refinancing my place, hope I havent missed the window. Haven't got the process started but will next week.  I can't really make any moves on my disablility claim until I refinance the house and talk to my doctor.  I have an appointment with him on the 6th.  I did get a treadmill off of craigs list and it's fantastic.  I have it and my exercise bike set up in my living room (I'll take a picture on another day - camera needs a recharge).  I really like it and feel like it.  I feel I have much better handle on things now,  can monitor my oxygen levels and re-establish my exercise program as was laid out for me by rehab.   I'm sorry I have not been responding lately, I just really haven't felt like it.  I've come in and kept up with what's going on but that's about all the energy I have left.

Shirley, I am so happy to read your journal. I was wondering how you wer doing and how your retirement plans were coming along. I am really anxious to find out if you actually have the valves. I am actually not pushing anyone here in the trials hoping that you get your results before they start things going again or that I call them and ask when they will start.

Hope you get to feeling better.
Hugs,
Anna

Boy girlfriend, you have a lot of pots in the fire. (isn\'t that the old saying?) NO wonder ou don\'t have the energy to not do much in here, with allof that. Besides, we all take breaks now and then. I have been more or less doing the samething. I check in a do a little, but that is about it. But, as Patti said, I do still continue to think about everybody. It has been nice seeing you on facebook. I find it entertaining. I am so hooked on that farm town game. It is addictive. Anyway...luv Ya! JOAnn
