I'm alive...

And back from my brain crazy roller coaster!

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful and considerate messages...its so sweet and will not be forgotten!

My Dad is doing so much better. They are trying really hard to get rid of the infection...he has 7 weeks of IV antiobiotics and then they will have to do more tests! If they cant get rid of the infection, then he will have to have the knee replacement all over again. Something we are trying to not even think about!

I haven't even stepped on the scale...been a little tight the past week and the only thing I can think of is that its that time of the month again! My eating has been horrible. So out of routine and eating crap. Hoping things will settle down and I can get back into!

We did go to a Halloween Party and I was in no mood...negative nelly! Within an hour, I was dancing and dancing...all night that I woke up with my hips hurting this morning! Who needs the gym when you can dance all night long! Just what I needed as a stress reliever!!!

Now I want to look into hip hop dancing lessons...Ive always loved to dance! This could be crazy but this is the new ME!

Oh yeah, people are not recognizing me at 50lbs down...feels a little strange but I WILL TAKE IT!

Hope you are all having a SPOOKTAKULAR DAY!


  1. Oh Nella I'm so sorry that this is going on with your Dad. I missed your last post so I wasn't aware of this. I am glad that he is doing better though. I will keep him in my prayers. My mother had an infection this past summer and she was no IV antibiotics for 6 weeks. We had a nurse coming into the house once a week to make sure we weren't killing her as we were changing the IV every day. Thankfully, she is fine and your dad will be too!

  2. Nella .. so glad to hear that things are getting back on track.. we missed. you.. hope everyone is feeling better

  3. Nella so sorry about your dad's infection. I missed your earlier post. What a drag!!!! Would you believe one of my friends just had a knee replacement last week - and she is in her early 40s! Yikes.

    I'm going to do another jeans post just for you ;).

  4. So glad to hear your Dad is doing better. I am really behind in blogs, but my thoughts are with you and your family. <3
