  1. Happy birthday JB! We love Buckees! We even have a Buckee pillow. Texas Tom, that’s a lot of exercise. LAD, At our sons, We didnt know how to dance so when we had to get up at the reception we just did circles. It was more fun then worrying about what we looked like. You gain another person into your family. Anyone who can flip tires will be ok. windy here today. Possible thunderstorm. Then gets cold again.
  2. Ok, here is the only picture I like of me. Reminds me of a bird. My DH took this picture. He was standing I was sitting but he is taller than me anyway. My meds aren’t working like they should so neuro might increase dose at. Next visit. I am predicting. I hate how this progrzam changes what I type. 8m not changing it to show what funny stuff it substitutes. Oh well. Marcia Bird. P.s. Some mistakes are mine I’m sure.
  3. Good morning Parkie friends. LAD, my meds say not to drink alcohol when taking meds! She-Ra, we don’t have a MDS in our town either. We’d have to drive two hours for one. So I make do with local guy. im looking for a decent picture to replace green me. Can’t find one yet. Keep warm.! M
  4. I have been looking into this further and getting different info so the end result is I’ve got to talk to my neurologist. This drug has side affects also. No cure. Should always check with your doctor first anyway. This is where I’m at in my PD journey.
  5. Hi all! I started my new meds and, wow, it’s working! It’s not perfect but I can do things again. Now I need to do exercises to try and do better. I’ve been on the Amantadine for four days. Plus still on the Ldopa meds. And B12. I read the paper of side affects and it says it fights the flu also so I can’t go in and get a regular flu shot but need to ask for a special one. I hope all are doing good. We are still camping but wanted to update you. it is going to be cold again Saturday. I’ll take what I can get.
  6. Dianne, that is horrid to have days like that. I hate hospitals. The one thing you think you should get, sleep, you don’t get. You feel like putting a sign up Do Not Disturb. Tom’ right. Sometimes you feel like you got in the fork line by mistake. May your next spoons be tablespoons. Or a giant serving spoon.
  7. Yes, I remember the spoon theory. My problem is I don’t know how much to count. The meds mess up my math. How many do you use.? id bring all of you to the south if I could😀 it is cool here, not hot. But I count my blessings. I send heat to all who are cold . I try with laughs. Did you hear the one about...
  8. I everyone. I have not been feeling well. I think because my neuro is changing my meds. We decided to spend the winter in the south. We have two boys and their families to visit. Cold at night but nice during the day. We camp when we get tired of living with others. Right now in Arizona. Hope this is saved. I’ll write more later. M
  9. It turns out my computer broke. My DH told me I should just get a new one. I have to use a desk top screen to use my lap top. Difficult. We took the cats to our son. They hide till dark and then come out. Their toddler points this out to MaMa and Papa. He is starting to make sentences. He is entering his twos. Terrible twos. Christmas we are having lots of food and relatives over to help eat it. The fake tree has a couple branches lights are out. That's ok. There are lot more. My screen is flashing green. Nothing to do with my green face. In case I can't get back in for awhile I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas. And a happy New Year. M
  10. I finally got back on here. I will change from green to something else.But just not here. I fell and so my body is hurting around the hip/knee area. I was trying to be careful. I think I might have already told you all. That's the way it goes sometime. Suppose to have rain storm and later change to snow. My DH thinks part of the hurt is because we are having this weather change. Could be. Right now the sun is out. Marcia
  11. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!! I'm a little late.
  12. Well, we found our cats have fleas. We attempted to rid our house of them plus the cats. Didn't work too well. So we decided (someone told me this) to board the cats and go full force. The cats didn't like it but they say fleas are heavy this year. So the cats were boarded for five days. We had to flea bomb the house. Got them today and they are scratching still. We also threw out the carpet and a couch no one liked sitting on. The cat is roaming the house to check on what we have done. I was carrying clean laundry up the three steps when I fell on the last one. I landed on the kitchen floor. I have been trying to avoid steps. I didn't get hurt. This is what my neurologist said. Falling is a common problem for people with PD. I guess I will have to try to do not so much. We brought them home today and they were glad to be home. One ran all over the house looking at what had changed. The problem is that these cats really belong to our son and daughter in law. We plan on giving them back end of December. One is attached to my DH. They follow him around. Not sure how they will react.
  13. Yeah, jb. How did you know I've been hiding in the green bottle.? Stuff has been happening. Hard to go up staiYors even if we only have three. And then when we took the cats down for a nail trim we discovered fleas. Dealing with that. Someone told us we should have put the flea stuff on once a month. I'm exhausted. The cats knew what they had in the beginning. They had been jumping couch to sofa to table. Then meow. Then look at us like, "It's your turn to help!" They look all over the furniture and floor before jumping. I think I got more fleas on me then they did on them. Then my sister reminded me that I have not done a blog post since April. Congrats LAD. And Wow Dianne. I guess I should continue with the fleas clearing out. I'll give them their notice. My DH said I should stop feeding them. Fleas and mosquito's like me. Tom, your pictures were cool. More later. m
  14. I just lost a whole post. Err!!! It's about RIP to JB's sister horse. The rest is how I keep losing stuff. Brain cells I mean. (I just found it)
  15. I've decided to stop trying to load pictures for awhile. So I'll try later. JB, So sorry about your sister's horse. It reminds me of my dog which had to be put to sleep. It still hurts to think about it. I have to focus on the fact that she is out of pain and happy. I still have a canister with her dog bones in it. She has been gone about 5 years. I'm a little slow. I find it takes me awhile to get an answer to anything. My brain has to analyze it first. I heard a phrase once...but now I've forgotten it. I'll be back with it when I remember it. More later.
