Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Foggy, but doing good : )

Hi everyone! : )
Thanks so much for all the prayers, good thoughts, concerns, well wishes, cards, emails, and food that you, my many friends, have passed along.  They all help more than you know.  Each day when I count my blessings, I think of you all. : )

I am feeling quite a bit better and if not for the antibiotics I'm taking would be fine.  These drugs put me in a fog.  I had to stop taking one of the meds because it made my feet numb so now I'm just on the one and have to keep taking it until there are no more pills left.  I take the last pill Sunday night. : )

I'm not going to start walking again until next Tuesday and will start out slowly, but I sure am looking forward to it.

I didn't go to Sunday school yesterday but Ken drove me to church and I sat through most of the service.  I left a bit early and Ken picked up me. 

I've been doing some reading but mostly haven't gotten much done.
Ken has been such a blessing through everything and I really don't know what I'd do without him.  He even keeps me laughing. : )

I'm trying to do some work around the house today but take it in small doses and rest.  Many things I try Ken takes over for me!  : )
Later on this afternoon we are going to take a trip to the library.

I have always tried to eat good but have been more concerned on the calories and my weight.  But that is going to change and I'm going to eat more of the fruits and vegetables like I always say I should.  I keep a food journal anyway so it won't be hard for me to keep tract of more than just the calories.  Ken has made up a chart for me to keep track easily of the foods I eat.  I can just check off the little boxes and know I'm eating what I should be eating.

I feel ready to start blogging again so here I am.
Thanks again for all your concern. : )
Have a wonderful Monday and don't forget to count your blessings!

Till next time......
Happyone : )
The greatest wealth is health.


  1. I am so glad you are feeling better! Soon you will be able to walk again!


  2. It is good to hear that you are feeling better! Just in time for spring, too!

  3. Hi Karen,
    Glad to hear you continue to recover. These things can leave a person really weak, so take it slowly especially at first. I know you will be on a high fiber regimen and that hopefully will keep another episode at bay! Thinking of you!


    Now I will read your post! :-)


  5. Welcome back to Blogland.
    You're good company even when you're in a fog!
    Ken's chart will be so helpful. I love the way you two work together!
    Have a good week, Happyone.

  6. First, you spoke to doc, about stopping one med, yes? :-) Yes, "Auntie" is checking up on you. -grin-

    "...but have been more concerned on the calories and my weight." Bingo! I said that, immediately.

    Hooray for paying more attention to fruits and veggies!

    That's a marvelous chart which Ken made up for you.

    Rest! And then, rest some more. All of what you want to dooooooo, will be there, tomorrow and the next day. PLEASE........

    Hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs,

  7. Delighted to find you here and feeling better. It's a process and you will find your way through I know. How eager you must be to get back to walking! I will be intrigued by your new eating plan...

  8. It made my morning to see a post from you and so glad to know that you are feeling better. You have been in my thoughts and prayers.
    Three cheers for Ken for taking such good care of you. The new eating chart looks great.
    Your quote today is so true. The older I get the more I am convinced of it.
    Take care. XO

  9. Glad you're feeling better my friend! We miss you :)

  10. We thank God "it came to pass", it didn't come to stay!

  11. Sorry to hear you have been sick. It's great that you have Ken there to look out for you.

  12. So glad you are feeling better, please take it slow and let Ken help you! I love you and want you to feel better soon and get back to normal! Fondly, Pam

  15. Bless your heart... I'm so glad to hear from you and know that you are feeling better. I cannot imagine YOU (one of the healthiest people I know) EVER being sick... Glad you are on the mend. Just do what you said and take it SLOWLY...

    God Bless...
    Hugs and Prayers,

  16. Pleased you are beginning to feel better. Eating food for better health will be a good thing (there're more important things than trying to keep our weight really low) and I'm sure you'll love to be out walking agin very soon.
