Back to work

        Well I took a pain pill before bed last night as my leg was throbbing and slept like a queen.   Which is good as I have lots to do today.  I have a few things to get listed today and I have a few things to mail.  Much to my dismay I am feeling tight in my chest already this morning.  Checked the weather and the humidity level is way up.  Maybe that is why my asthma is acting up?  My chest feels achy and sore like it does after I have a bad attack.  Its like trying to breath with your chest encased in cement.  I just can't get the air in and more I struggle, the worse it gets.  Rick keeps telling me not to get dependent on my inhaler but hey,  guess what?  I am dependent on it.....for a deep breath,  for air air air.  Gosh.  And check out my bruise from the IV.

    I know stress can bring on attacks.  Now yesterday I wasn't feeling stressed that I know of.  I had a really good meditation set,  my MIL is feeling fair.  I was off work and got to talk to my sister in Hawaii.  I was working on the pretty flower pictures minding my own business when I started have trouble breathing.  My calf as been hurting since last week and to top it off I got a charlie horse in it the other day so it was pretty sore and I was taking it easy on it.  It really was without any warning when this attack came on.  I wasn't using any bleach, cleaning out my tub, nothing.  So I don't know.  I have 2 ways I handle stress, deal with it head on or tuck in way back in a corner of my mind so I don't have to think about it all the time.  Maybe it wasn't as tucked back as I thought.

   Thursday Zoey gets her sutures out.  We are more then ready for that as every time we pet her we hit one accidentally.  They will take out the lump on here head at that time and tell us the final report.  I can get some more of my questions answered then that I couldn't think of to ask him at the time.  Like how serious is this cancer.  I know that sounds dumb but maybe it is one that grows really really slow or not at all once they remove it.  I can hope, right!

   My BIL is still doing his thing.  He has completely gone through my MIL's house.  Every closet, every drawer.  He is driving her car all over.  I told her to make sure he is insured.  But he is cooking meals for her and planting her flowers.  He is messy which drives her nuts.  I am just trying to get along so my MIL isn't stressing about it.  I don't want her in the middle.

   Well, enough of putting off work.  Time to get my pictures fixed and listed.  Take care all.
   May your tires always be round and full and your muscles strong like steel.

Your flowers are very pretty. That picture of you on your bike is great. At least your BIL is cooking some for your MIL so you won't have to worry about that. Your arm looks about like mine when I get an IV or have blood taken. I hope your asthma attacks soon gets better. Good luck on Zoey's vet visit. Helen

I love your pictures of the flowers and of you near your bike! You look so cute!  OUCH on the IV bruise! Man...looks like a battle wound!
I know that when the humidity goes up here that Joey has asthma problems. He can't handle it if it's too dry either. So either way, he'll have to use his inhaler. That's a miserable feeling too!  
I hope you feel better soon.

Pretty nasty bruise.   I think BIL should get a bruise or two....and I'm almost serious.      Thank God for inhalers....

I think you are more stressed than you realize, your literally taking the brunt of your BIL's selfishness trying to protect your MIL. Then the recent events with Zoey, the scare when your grandkid got sick and ran a high fever. It adds up hon. Take some me time and try not to let the rest drag you down with it. Keeping you in my prayers on the smoke! (Hugs) Indigo

You are so stressed, poor thing.  Maybe what you need is a short stent of steriods to help your asthma.  The humidity is certainly not missed by me.  It definitely irriated my allergies and made me have bouts of asthma.  I'm keeping fingers crossed and prayers that Zoey is better and that the cancer was localized.  Give the BIL a kick in the head (or whatever else you can reach).  Hang in there.  De ;)

I hope Zoey will be all right and the cancer is all taken away. I think your BIL has a damn cheek, you don't just go through somebody's house like that, even if it is your mothers. He should learn respect! I hope the asthma gets under control again. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

Julie, I would think you have more than enough stress to bring on an asthma attack.  Not only your MIL and BIL but now you have Zoey to worry about also.  That bruise is really vicious looking.  I think you really need a break.  Chris
