Update on mom

so turns out mom is gonna be ok, thank goodness.
they ran tests in the ER, she had a chest x ray and some bloods taken to see if there was a clot in her lungs. there wasnt. and the doctor said the x ray showed no signs of infection in the lungs either.
he told her she shouldnt have tried to go out this afternoon to get groceries, that she should have stayed home and rested after seeing the gp.
anyway, he said he’d send her an apt to go to the COPD outreach clinic, that will take about a week to organise.
So in the meantime he told her to contine to religiously take her inhalers, and also she is to finish her course of steroids.
I’m so glad she’s ok. Thank you for all of the prayers and kind thoughts you sent earlier today. They were very appreciated.

Prayers guys

my mom is in the ER. She has COPD and she had a couple of breathing attacks today so she went to her gp and the gp gave her steroids. She’s had two courses of steroids over the last month. Anyway when she came home from the gp’s she went to try to do her grocery shopping with my sister. But when she got there she started to have another breathing attack. So my sister took her to the ER. I think she’ll be there a while, she said they are very busy. I’ll update as soon as I have news but would appreciate if you’d pray for her.

saturday self care

well I enjoyed some self care activities today. so I thought I’d write about them.

first off, I did my skin care routine this morning. Cleansed, toned and moisturized my skin. It felt so good.

Next, I ate 3 healthy meals. I ate a lot of fruit today. Ate spaghetti bolognes for dinner. I did make bacon and toast for breakfast but I cut off the fat of the bacon.

I also drank a ton of water. I am doing much better with that.

🙂 win to me!

I napped in the afternoon and I read my book too. It was relaxing. I enjoyed the down time. 😛

What self care things have you done today?

bad diet day

well today I am struggling to eat well. I am not being healthy. I have to eat whats in the fridge and most of what is in the fridge is not healthy. its been there since before I started my weight loss programme. I haven’t gone grocery shopping lately, and in this bad weather we’re having all the grocery stores are closed.
so all I have are frozen foods, very very unhealthy. but I really have no other option.
I did have baked beans though which is healthy enough but I also had fries well they were oven baked fries andi had some chicken wings.
I will need to do extra exercise to work it off.
I just hope next week when I get weighed that I wont be up. if I am i’ll be so disappointed.
my pa called me. she said she wouldn’t be coming to me this evening. I had guessed that she wouldn’t be. the roads are impassible. no one is meant to drive on them.
one more day of eating unhealthy food…I hope.
