The break is over!!

I took about a 3 week break from the Y...I can tell you why....I could use the excuse that I had so much to do, was adjusting to the new school year with the students I work with, taking Evan to therapy appointments. However the truth is that is what would be an excuse.

Being given a second chance at life should not be taken for need to move your need to watch what you need to keep your self mentally fit....You need to MAKE the time not FIND the time to do it!!!!

I am going to Make the time.....How about you?

Staying Healthy when in West Virginia!!

Before my transplant I ate anything I wanted...since the transplant not so much....this causes a bit of confusion for my father in law. Don't get me wrong the man has a heart of gold and would give you anything you need but he is in two words a food pusher. This weekend on Saturday he got some Arby's with cheese for Evan, chicken nuggets (4) for Sharon...for me he got me 2 double bacon cheese burgers from Burger King.....he got them Saturday night and gave them to us when we went to the club to see him....the club that has smokers in it...I sit by the kitchen and he runs the smoke eaters....I don't drink anymore so I sip on Tomato juice......I took the food back to his house and put it in the fridge...he wanted us to take it home when we left so we did not have to stop....when we stopped at the gas station to get Sharon a coffee and Evan a coke I had her toss out the 2 burgers...further down the road the Arby's went as well. I try to tell him that I don't eat that stuff anymore and he gets sad and says he does not what to have when we are there.

He did have yogurt and almonds and juice so I was happy. Oh and he had a cheese pizza that I cooked for Evan.

I did well but may need to have a talk about the double bacon cheese burgers.....I have a 22 year old heart and would like to keep it healthy.

How would you handle this???

Swine-Flu Dodge Ball!!

This weekend the family and I were going to West Virginia to see my father in law. While there we were supposed to see friends. Friday before we leave the text came that one of the twins has a fever..we decide to still go see father in law. As we are driving there we got another text stating fever was back and stronger. Our visit would be cancelled. We spent the weekend at father in laws house. We enjoyed ourselves. My sister in law called Saturday to say her son has a fever...we were supposed to take some pumpkins over there for the kids from grandpa. We ditched that idea really quick. Had a nice drive home yesterday.....nice visit with the father in law as usual.

I like sports now but Flu Dodge Ball Sucks...Evan was looking forward to seeing everyone and was a little upset...however he got over it......WWE Pay per views will do that for a kid.

Stay well and wash your if you are sick stay home!!!

A busy Sunday coming up!

This Sunday is a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for my transplant fund....I was only out of the hospital 6 days at the first fundraiser in April...I promise I will be staying at this one longer.

However before the dinner, I need to take Evan to religious school until noon....go to the dinner and then take Evan bowling as this is also the start of our new parent/child bowling league.

This upcoming week I need to go get bloodwork.....I would much rather get the needle in the arm then the cath in my neck.

Things are good.... no make that great over the last 7 months.

It is time to get flu shots!!

I had already scheduled my annual flu shot for Oct. 15th. When I did the Transplant team was not sure if we should get the Swine flu shot...well that has now been answered and yes..yes we do need to get it!! So now hopefully the doctor will have it!!!! It has to be the shot for both can not do nasal spray...I just feel bad for Evan and Sharon since they have to get them both because of litle old me....

So on the 15th of October Team Pugs will roll up there sleeves at this point we don't know if it will be three or six and take our shot or shots with a big smile on our faces!!!
