  1. Sadie, I'm glad that you are doing better and that you are home. I know your cat missed you. I'm hoping that those antibiotics work very quickly. Deb :)
  2. Happy Mother's Day to all! It's rainy in Cincinnati. I'm spending the day studying for a mid-term in statistics(ugh). I hope everyones day is what they want it to be. Deb
  3. Hi Phyllis, Welcome to the group. I agree with everyone when they say take it one day at a time. This is a great group and they know how to help through the over-whelming times and positive times. I must say that I found the spoon story very inspiring and the pity party very funny. Sometimes laughter is the only way I get through some things Smile there's a lot friends here for you to lean on. Lady Deb
  4. Way to go!!!!! I 'm proud of you. Deb
  5. Thanks everyone for all the support. It has meant the world to me. Friday Is the big test. Hopefully some kind of news will be found out. I'm going to take a day a time this week. working and going to school is what I've got to do. This statistics class is were most of the stress comes from.Anyway, I'm thankful for all of you. :rolleyes: :) :D
  6. It seems like it has been forever since I felt well. Every little thing has made me short of breathe and all the joints hurt.I need to watch how much NASAIDS I take due to the Methrotrexate. I had two tests done . The spiral CT didn't show anything except calcification from previous pulmonary embolisms I had. The 6 minute walk test showed my pulse ox. drop to 89% at the end and I got dizzy. This comming Friday I am having the cardio-pulmonary level 1 stress test. I just seems like all of these things are taking forever.Sometimes I don't feel like I am pulling my weight at work and that my staff feels like I should be doing more. Somedays I wish that their was a magic pill that would made everything feel better. I know their isn't. Thanks for letting me vent. Debbie
  7. Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday , Sadie. Happy Birthday to you. Hope it was great. Deb
  8. I hope that you are doing well without the cigarettes today. Hang in there! Deb
  9. Here's another nurse. I graduated in 1976 with my associate degree in nursing. I was 20 years old. I could give patients drugs but I wasn't old enough to buy liquor.Ha! I started out working in a nursing home for 3 years and I did learn alot. I went to work in a hospital setting as a med-surg nurs for two years and them found my love in nursing - maternity nursing. I started working as a a mother-baby nurse on the postpartum unit for 9 years. From there I went to work in Labor and Delivery for 16 years. This is what I love the most to see a person take their first breath, to see life begin, to see families elated to see their new love one. A year and a half ago I went to work on our high-risk pregnancy unit with the moms who are sick with their pregnancy. Now I am the assistant nurse manager. I have worked in the same hospital going on 29 years. We deliver close to 7000 babies a year. It is a busy place. I hope that I can get better and continue to work there doing what I love. I am now in school working on getting my BSN in nursing which will be completed in 2010. :D
  10. Lady Deb --- Well my name is Debbie and Deb is the newest version of the name. Everyone calls me Deb now. Accually, my name is Deborah but noone calls me that except my mom when she is mad at me. Lady came from me trying to have some pride in myself. (Just a little self-esteem)
  11. I'm proud of you. You can do it!! As a ex-smoker, I'm going to be here to cheer you on. Hurray for you and your buddy!!!!!!!!
  12. I'm very happy that you have a doctor who can help you. It gives us all encouragement to be advocates for ourselves. Thanks for being such a great role model for us.!
  13. Last summer my doctor put me on Methotrexate. Is this a good drug for slowing down the scleroderma? That's what they told me it would do? Deb
  14. Thanks everyone! Tomorrow I'm going for two of the tests. I'm thinking positively.
