Good day all,
The link above is dreaming of a white Christmas by Elvis. I chose Elvis because my Mom loves him.
Looks like my dreams are coming true!! Everywhere you look is white and beautiful. This brings me a giant smile. I do not know if you all like the white stuff for Christmas, but it sure does make my day.
I have had a lovely and productive day. I will say I have not had any cardio today, although I was up and down on the step-ladder quite a few times. I was organizing some of the kitchen cupboards. Kyle had the cupboards above the stove full of glass jars that really should be in the recycling, which this afternoon is where they went. I filled a box right to the brim and Kyle went down and put them where they needed to be. This in turn gave me space to move a lot of stuff around to make things less messy. I should change the way I say that, things were not really messy just to crowded for my liking. I rarely have the energy to finish what I start so I really did not want to start a job like today without having a stock pile of zoom, zoom!! I actually was a bit concerned as I started this in the afternoon.
This morning I was crawling around on my knees in the master bath scrubbing around the base of the tub. I also was able to scrub some marks that had been made by my wheelchair a very long time ago. Those marks have annoyed me for a very long time, and I do mean a very long time. I just asked Kyle to go look in the bathroom at what I did today to see if he would notice it. It seems funny to me the things that people deem as important. He had no idea what I had done, he never noticed it before. Those marks have been driving me batty for a year and a half since we have been home. They have been on there since Kyle used to tip my chair over the edge of the tub to wash my hair. I know that probably makes no sense, but that is what he had to do. Oh my see the perks for me being able to shower on my own? Not having to hang over the edge of a tub upside down in my wheelchair, how exciting life has become.
We took off midday to the Crowsnest Pass now the highway is open. I needed some DDAVP and with the weather being as precarious as it has been we thought going across was a good idea to go while the getting was good. We also needed to purchase new house phones, the batteries were gone for crap in them. On top of that last night Kyle broke our coffee pot so we needed to buy one of those too. I said to Kyle that these were our Christmas presents, we need nothing else. This is a factual statement of course, we really are in need of nothing. It is nice to know that we are able to pick out together what we wanted and be done with it.
I have a few gifts to wrap for my family and some little people I buy for other than that all done with everything. I honestly have done nothing of importance when it comes to this holiday at all. I am uncertain why I am not into all the hoopla this year. I am thinking that somehow it is about how my life is different and what is important is different now. Wow this just hit me and it feels right when I think it. This is weird, I have never felt so calm having such a thought. My perspective on life has changed in a drastic way over the last few years. I guess this year it is Christmas that is getting the make over. My heart is content, there is nothing else to ask for.
I had a happy day. Tomorrow I am making pie in the morning while Kyle goes to the doctor. In the afternoon while he is in Fernie picking up his safety glasses for work Gerda will be here working on me. This will be the last time I will see her for a couple of weeks as she is going on a holiday for two weeks. I am grateful that she is finding the time to fit me in before is takes off. I do think while she is gone I am going to look into finding a good acupuncturist. I have not had acupuncture since home from Ottawa.
We ran into one of my old nurses in the Pass today, it is exciting to share that I have been cured of MS. I know I can see the eye brows raising now, I also know that this is true for me. I get I have all my old damage, I also get that I do not get any new, this to me is the answer for my future. This is also the answer for many other futures when the scientist finally get things figured out. I am done hiding behind the fact that people to not want to go as far as to say this. Well they do not have too, but I am going too. My STEM CELL REPLACEMENT/BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT saved and changed my life. It has given me the opportunity to share that the answers are out there. I just needed to say this today, it just popped out. I say that my old nurse was shocked to see me. She has not seen me since I was sent home to die. LOOK AT ME NOW!! No dying!!
Love and hugs Fiona
