      She is delightful and I agree Chad is a gem. We met her parents too they are very nice also. I am so glad you got to spend time with them. I always love seeing ScrapGirls in person and look forwards to seeing you again this summer.

      What fun. After all these years doing digiscrap I don't think I've ever met an online friend IRL. Sounds wonderful. I agree- bring on the photos.

  4. The long and winding road took me safely to Gallup New Mexico. Now I can take many photos to scrap! Boring boring drive.

      oh no the flu....ugh. My friend got it when he was on a 3 week Mediterranean cruise so I guess it's going around.

      Im sorry you have to be sick as I know you miss seeing the grandchildren so much. Feel better real soon.

  6. So…. Another bad luck story from me. Friday morning 4:30 am, mopping my floors, I don’t sleep much.  Hurt my tailbone back toes and bump on my head. My legs lifted up and u went down flat on my back! Then today, some stupid woman reversed into my car. Between my 2 doors drivers side. Can you say run of bad luck? Ow!

  7. The thinner I get, the colder I feel. It’s 72 right now will go up to 92… I’m wearing socks but my feet are still icy cold. But as the saying goes, nothing tastes as good as thin feels. I’m down 42lbs since my kidney removal 😁❤️🦵🏻 Now to fix my leg. MRI at 2pm today.

      I hope the MRI goes well for you. And good for you losing that weight! 

    3. DixieLee

      I do get cold and I sleep under a heating blanket at night, You can even get a vest that heats up and socks- you just have to plug them in to charge them up.

      Congrats on the weight loss! I am always cold too. I have bad neuropathy in my legs and feet. Not diabetic but something to do with my back that no one can figure out how to fix. I wear socks at night year round. I'm going to check out the socks that Tracy recommended. Good luck with your MRI!!

  8. Well the Dr says I’m a tough old broad. A car rolled over my leg tonight. I was helping a neighbor move her car, we were pushing, suddenly it started moving, I tried to jump in and pull the handbrake, and I fell over, and it rolled right over me. I went to the ER, bruised, scraped, but miraculously no broken bones! I’m in a lot of pain, but ok. I’m just lucky it never rolled over my hips or torso. Just have a follow up and things to watch out for. But I didn’t die. Lol.

      I keep thinking how very lucky you were not to have sustained even worse injuries. Some consolation I guess when you're feeling so sore and bruised. Sending you a gentle hug.

      OMG Andrea! You are so lucky there was no more severe damage. Take care of yourself.

  10. Yesterday I lay down for a nap at about 2pm….. woke up this morning at 8:15 longest nap in history! My body must have needed that.

      Been gone all weekend and just catching up! You must have needed that rest! Hope you're feeling better every day. 

  11. My health took a downward turn… ugh. It’s been 8 weeks! I was making a salad yesterday and my feet felt sticky on the floor… I looked. Blood. My incision split open 1”- again. I want to feel good just one day. Just one day of energy will do.

      Somehow I feel you will really struggle with that but you can do it for the end result.

      I Hope you can rest too...Heal well and sending hugs to you.

  12. I had a ‘first’ on Friday. I am bald, and covering my head with scarves and wigs has become a pain, and it’s hot. So I thought, this is me now, if people don’t like it or are offended by it, it’s their problem. (It’s taken me 3 years to accept this) so Friday I was in line at Costco to pick up meds, when I suddenly felt a finger rub my head. I turned to see who it was, and it was a man in his mid 70’s who said “nice, I love it” so I quickly replied, “it’s not by choice”. Isn’t that crazy?

      Your a beautiful woman inside and out my dear friend ❤️

      Congratulations on realizing that you don't have to conform to other people's expectations. That must have been a bit confronting, having a stranger touch your head though! You are a beautiful person, Andrea, inside and out.

    4. Celestine

      Celestine

      Well, my first thought was "Boundaries!" regarding the man who touched your head. The second was, I think he was acknowledging your bravery and embracing your "now." You go, girl!

  13. I  al also having trouble. Trying to do y 5 LSL. I'll try later again.

  14. Hey DESIGNERS… check out this weeks scrap chat… has product requests

  15. Yay, we are out of the ICU. She is still on the heart monitor though, but we’re in the regular ward now. She went for a walk today and has her sense of humor back. We’re so happy to be here. More info tomorrow.

  16. An update. This is Melody again. Andrea ended up in ICU. She had a setback yesterday. She now has pneumonia and has to be detoxed as her kidney can only deal with a minimal amount of medication. She has been given a medication that takes that all out of her system. She is able to communicate and hold a conversation now whereas yesterday I must say, I was very worried. She still has no strength in her legs but I am sure that will end soon. I will keep you updated as and when I can. Regards, Melody

      And to you too Andrea! I do hope your eye is improving.

  22. It feels like I’ve spent a month at the hospital. I’m so tired. Between my sister having emergency brain surgery, and @ broken wrist from the fall that caused the brain bleed, and my neighbor who came to my house and collapsed in my arms saying she’s I’ll and needs help. She stayed in the same hospital for 4 days. They both went home today so I can get my life back together.  Long story on my 42 year old neighbor.

  24. It’s been an awful Season for me and my family. I was I hospital for 2 days and nights, with gastroenteritis, Noravirus, and Rotavirus, my 2 grandkids also, in Maine, and now 3 of my 4 in Gallup NM, throwing up, possible food poisoning. I don’t want this ever happening again. So I spent my Christmas In Hospital, being immune compromised, I pick everything up. I wish everyone a wonderful, happy, healthy New Year. 2023, bring it on!
