Getting older

Definitely my daughters can out play, out run, out dance, out scheme, out think me (sometimes) Living with Asthma is not easy, and right now my biggest challenge. Many of us take the basics, eye sight, walking, talking and breathing for granted. I've has Asthma all my life. For a good part of my life it was controlled. When I was younger, I was always in the office getting epinephrine shots. My family smoked, and so I would go into an asthma attack because of that or another reason. I was always told you'll outgrow it. Oh how I waited for the day! It never happened. Because back in the day, I was considered a sick kid, ironically I became a nurse.

I got really sick around Easter, and being a nurse I should have known better. Being an asthmatic for over 40 yrs, I should have known better. Having two young girls I should have known better, I was really sick. Long story short, I took myself to the E.R. thinking I would zip in and get a breathing treatment. NOOOOOOOOO, I got the works, and still am not 100 % ..and I attribute that to getting older. My pulmonologist feels I am no worse for wear...but I do think my asthma hasn't gotten any better really, just better controlled. I am getting older. It ain't easy being an old asthmatic. Asthma sucks the life right out of you. It sucks. If you can get the picture. I am on the mend, for being old.
Until next time.

Don't Blink too fast

It has been a pretty fast year so far. It is now April, and we are half way through it. We had a pretty mild winter in Chicagoland,and Spring came quickly..(although now on the cooler side) Easter whizzed by in a whirl wind, and for us without decorations this year, or a lot of anything else. I ended up very sick with my asthma and an upper respiratory infection. I knew I was out of shape, but when Sparky ran out our front door and I couldn't catch chest was still pretty congested...well I knew I hit that old lady age. Sparky had run into the street and got hit by a car. He survived...lucky beagle that he is. We just recently got him nuetered, so for some reason he wants to run and get out of the yard more than ever. Maybe his brain isn't connecting to what has happened yet. We have an electric fence, so not sure how he is getting out. For now we have him on the dog run....sometimes I wonder.

Home health work has really slowed down...for now, because I have this respiratory thing going on, it is ok, but I will have to find more work. I just recently renewed my license, got everything in order for my jobs.

As far as our summer vacation, I am not sure what we will do just yet.

That is all for now, until next time.
