Good morning all!

I have been on here briefly to read blogs the past day or 2 but not to blog. I've been so busy. I saw my primary Dr. yesterday and asked her to discontue the home health. I said they were cramping my style. I still need to spend time here everyday, I could do all my physical therappy exercizes all day long and not get through all of them 2x/day, and I spend a lot of time on meal planning as getting all the nutrition in in 7 small meals takes a bit of getting use too. I got up at 3:30 yesterday am to take my husband to work (with the big oxygen tank, I still do not have the small ones) Left for the Dr. at 9:00, walked quite a bit from the parking garage to the office, came home, left about an hour later to pick up husband, did a huge grocery shopping and came home and put groceries. I'll admit I was exhausted but does this sound like someone who needs home care? I think I am wasting medicare resources. Hopefully I'll be back in pulmonary rehab in a few weeks and in a few months I will be able to look for a part-time job. I've had suggestions of Goodwill and Salvation Army as they are good about hiring people on disability.

I am so happy about how well I'm doing with the 14mg patches. I still have urges and thoughts here and there, but I haven't had a real crave in awhile. I'm giving the glory to God with that.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful smoke-free w/e!
