Lots To Do..

 There's a ton of things to do....but I am not able to do one..not one at this time.  My back's been out for three weeks now. I thank our Lord that Ted is better and able to help me. Although , last night it took both of us to warm up a can of soup. I started it , had it on the stove and Ted had to take over.  Sad. :)
   Ted is driving himself to his chemo in Noblesville this week. So thankful it is closer to home.  He had help early this week from his brother who took him to Carmel for his heart scan. He will be hearing the results next week when he goes back to his heart doctor.  I , myself have had three chiropractor visits and one late night E.R. trip. When in E.R. I got a morphine  shot and a pain pill to take home. Which proceeded to make me very sick to my stomach. After three days of no sleep, severe pain and taking tylenols and praying for help, I went to our G.P. He ordered an nsaid for inflammation and I now am feeling a bit better . I still can not walk far, lift anything ,or be more than a lump on the sofa, but I am praying I get better. Ted and I can still laugh, that helps us both. We are not ready for the land of misfits yet.  LOL
 Not sure when I will be back. I will try to visit all of you. I miss my blog pals. I am thinking of all of you and do want to wish you a beautiful Christmas.  XO

  3. Susie, I'm sorry to hear you hurt your back. That is the worst pain sometimes. It's good that Ted's treatments are closer to home now. I know what you mean about the pain medication - I've never been able to stomach it myself.

    Rest now, Susie, and I'm saying a prayer for my dear friend right now, and for Ted with his heart scan.

  5. Thank you so much Susie for visiting, I hope your pain leaves you soon, I keep you and Ted in my prayers always, although my blog has the same name it has a new address so you won’t have me come up on your blog reader unless you follow me, I lost all my followers when the glitch happened, sending my love , Laurie from where the spruce trees grow,

  6. Merry Christmas, Susie!

    "Ted is driving himself to his chemo..."

    I just want to say this sounds like a very good sign.

    Blessings!

  9. Oh Susie! You've been pushing yourself to your limits and your body is now forcing you to take a break. I am glad to hear Ted is able to do more things. Take care - blogging can always wait. -Jenn

  10. Susie, I am so sorry to hear this news. I've been so fortunate with my back during this time of care giving. I've had a bad back since my early twenties, but have not had a back flair up in a very long time. You are in my prayers and that will not be stopping. You and Ted are like us and you can use all the prayers that folks will send on your behalf.
    It is good news that Ted is able to help and to drive to his appointments. Take care of yourselves and don't do any more work than you absolutely have too. It's okay to order pizza and stay on the couch.
    God bless you both.
    Connie :)

  13. Oh this just sounds awful. I am going to send you my best back remedy behind the scenes. If Linda sees this, she’ll laugh as I just sent it to her. Reading it, you might think that the remedy is worse than the condition. Glad that you’re still laughing. That’s a very good thing.

  14. So sorry about your back and I pray it gets better soon! I am busy as a bee and don't have a whole lot of time to sit at the computer. I hope you and Ted have a wonderful Christmas Season. Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!

  15. Oh Susie....I am so sorry...I can relate...a back issue a few weeks ago and it's horrible! Rest is best for you now..take good care!

  16. Oh my it's true what they say about when it rains it pours. Just about the time you thought things were getting better, they got worse. I will be praying for you both and hoping you are better soon. Take care and don't try to over do it. It will only make it worse. Rest is what is needed right no in order for you to heal. One thing about anything you might want to do, is that it will wait.

  17. Susie,
    So sorry about your back. That is so miserable to have going on especially when you want to do a lot of things at this time of year. Saying a little prayer your back starts to feel better. Glad Ted is doing well and able to drive himself to appointments and also help you with your back being out. Take it easy.
    Hugs,
    Kris

  19. I'm so sorry to hear this and you both will be in my prayers. Back problems are something else to deal with and I feel for you so much. I also know what it's like to not be able to turn my hands and do anything. It can and does get to us after a while. Love you and praying extra hard. xo

  25. Oh Susie, that sounds just grim -- from one thing to another. I know Ted is probably grateful and happy to help and hope all goes well with his chemo. It's an awful time of year to be laid up, but do take care. Your health is more important than anything.

  27. Oh Susie! I am so sorry to hear about your back! That is so miserable and I know you want to be up and around. Hopefully the NSAID takes down the inflammation and you will be feeling better soon. Sending prayers! xoxo

  28. Well you posted this five days ago. Hope you are feeling lots better by now. I'm so sorry about your back. I never understood about back pain until it happened to me in 2015...I've had three steroid injections since then. I can see it taking the both of you to heat a can of soup. Wishing you and Ted the best.

  30. awwww susie, when it rains, it pours...you are in the flood zone!! i am so sorry to read of your back issues but how wonderful to read that ted is a bit better.

    i take muscle relaxers and they really help. also, when my pain (not in my back) is so bad that i am forced to take pain pills, i take zofran first so i don't get sick and throw up. i have not read the other comments...i don't know if others are giving advice, and i really don't like to BUT i hate to think of you in pain. maybe that will help!!

    best wishes to you both...in my heart, i am making chicken soup for you both!!

  31. Hi Susie. I do hope this finds you doing better with your back and hope Ted is as well. Thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas card . I appreciate even more so you thinking of me and praying when you're in such shape. My husband has back problems and it is so hard to live with and the pain is unbearable. I want you to know you both are always in my prayers and I do hope you all can enjoy your Christmas. Like you it's going to be very small here as well. We only have up a small fiber optic tree. I know that's not what Christmas is about but we keep it in our hearts and that's what matters the most. Merry Christmas and a Happy New year to you sweet friend and we'll all pray another year will be so much better on us all. love you. xo

  32. Susie, there seems to be good news and bad news. Good news first: I'm so glad Ted is doing better and that you both are still laughing..Bad news: I am so sorry you are hurting. I know how miserable a bad back can be. It seems that mine has just gone chronic now. Could be worse. I am leaving my thank yous under your comments now. Something is always wrong with blogger so this makes it a lot easier. (for me) hope it is not too much trouble for you to come back. I know you probably don't have time to come back but just know it is waiting for you there..Merry Christmas my sweet friend..xxoJudy

  33. Dear Susie, so sorry to learn you are still having back problems after three weeks now. I commiserate, there is nothing more irritating. It's not easy to take it slow this time of the year either.
    Hopefully, you can afford yourself some rest, and feel better.
    I'm wishing you, Ted, and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    Hugs dear friend,
    ~Jo

May the Lord bless you beyond your beyond dear Susie. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  37. Thank you for your kind words. My vision gets worse at times, then a little better. I have a vision therapist who is going to try to help me with this. Grateful for that. I pray for you and your husband also. God bless you.

  38. Compost starters, available from the garden centers, add microorganisms to the soil that help speed up the decay process.

  39. If you massage your cellulite areas with an exfoliating scrub or knobbed massager, it can help to break up the fat areas and distribute it more evenly. If you use soaps or scrubs containing caffeine, it can help tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of lumps at the same time.

  40. Brush a shiny bronzer up and down the front of your legs where they are tight and cellulite-free. This will draw the eye to the front of your body and away from your problem areas, ensuring only the best of you is shown off.
