First a shout out...
Brett Favre is totally amazing... Consecutive games record, Most Touchdowns record, you can't help but admire and respect the man. He is a quarterback and football player for the ages.
Hubby and I going to watch the Giants play tonight. The Jets were rousted by the Bills earlier, dang it.
Anyhow, yesterday, I didn't get to post an entry! I was so busy... a good busy! Kathy and J were visiting! Yay!
J is getting so big! He is in the pre-K class at his day care now, and very excited because he gets a box with his own crayons, scissors and, most importantly to J... GLUE! LOL Very exciting stuff when you are 4 1/2. I remember those days for mine very well!
Kathy and I had a lovely time chatting the afternoon away, while Pumpkin and J played together at the park, with balls, sidewalk chalk, and video games.
Hubby and the boys were at a Boy Scout trip until dinnertime. They visited a place we had been as a family before called Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome .
They have a large collection of WWI biplanes, and do shows every Saturday and Sunday. The show differs depending on the day, last time we saw the Sunday show, so the boys were excited to see the Saturday version. I will show pics in another entry.
Today was a quiet in the house day.
I don't know if this is a lupus flare, MS flare, or what, but much like what happened in January, is starting up again for me. I had a choking episode earlier this week, and tonight I had a horrible one. I aspirated some meat and then the wracking coughs required to get it out, have injured my throat, making it sore, and my voice scratchy. Trouble with swallowing is called dysphagia, and it can happen in both diseases. :-/
The weakness is back, I stumbled several times this week, which drew my attention to it's arrival. The numbness, tingling and unstability, in the legs, arms, and hands - all here. The crushing fatigue? Well, that's here in full force, too.
And, the frustration is here, that this crap is all starting again.
I spoke with Hubby, and I may call the MS Center and see about them doing the MRI sooner. Last time, I felt that by the time the tests were done, most of my symptoms had eased if not, stopped. Maybe it would be better to do it sooner. I don't know. Decisions...
However, it could be worse! So much worse... that I will limit todays pity party to just the tears I shed earlier, after my choking episode. Time to focus on what I can do. And, on the many blessings I have in my life.
Speaking of blessings, I have met many wonderful people who inspire me in J-Land. There are two I would like to mention - Kim, at I shaved my legs for this? and Irene at, Meet Me At The Breakfast Table , are warriors extraordinaire, fighting the Big C. Please, go visit them, and give them some encouraging words today.
