Hi Y'all! I am a mom,nana,teacher, dog owner,and writer from northern Louisiana now living in AL.

The Pain Of Lymphedema
I have a newsreel on lymphedema on my blog that has the current news on lymphedema,which I have.A few days ago, from the Huffington Post,I read a ridiculous statement by a therapist who stated that lyphedema is not painful.Uh,hello?.....I beg to differ. Here is a response to her letter by a professional that decided to politely set her straight! Pain of Lymphedema http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/29/AR2010112904882.html Lymphedema is often times painful, as I can attest. Please ignore, and don't pass on remarks to any of your friends that have lymphedema that your read that it is not painful just because some arrogant snot that does not have a clue said so!( I have had people tell me ," But I read that it is not that painful." .......and I think, "Oh really, did you lay awake til the early hours of the morning with your legs hurting
so bad that you could not sleep?I did.
This picture was taken before diagnosis . All I knew was something was terribly wrong!

My Blog List
Here is my article link on holiday stress on hubpages.
Houston,my little cleft palate chorkie puppy turned 10 months old on July 16th. It can be done! He has to eat dry dog food,to minimize risk of food going in his nostril,but other than that,he pretty much leads a normal doggy life. I am so glad I didn't listen to those who advised to put him down.
Houston saying, "I Yub You".Who can resist?
Here he is trying to put me on a guilt trip (I think) because he wants to play,and mommy won't put the laptop down. He can "talk" and growls, "I Yub You." (Repeatedly sometimes .)Too cute to resist,and I did put my laptop away,lol.
GODTUBE is on facebook now. (So am I!!)Click like on facebook,and you will see so many uplifting posts and pictures.Today my prayers seem to be lifting about two inches...there are days like that.I know. I came to the Lord December 1969.
Here is a picture of that young girl.
I 'm a long time Christian. So what if I don't YET see what I am praying about coming any closer.That doesn't matter. My command is to pray. His promise is that He will hear. It doesn't matter if I don't "feel it"That is when you pray harder..pray anyway...... Went to GodTube.com and found this. All better now.Read the caption that was under it. That says it all.
CAPTION SAID: No matter what I face today God's got it under control...I'll PRAY!
So much has happened in my life this year that I literally forgot I had left my blog open just in case I wanted to come back. You might remember that my daughter Lisa had a stroke,and I felt I was spending too much time on a blog that doesn't make a dime.(Some of you had advised this...thanks.) So many of you set notes that you understood that I did not have time to go to each of your blogs and comment on a weekly basis. As for sitting and writing with lyphedema,the recliner helps.
Actually,things are more complicated than they were before,as my daughter that lives with me,Lisa,has been diagnosed with MS.Poor thing,we have been making the rounds of doctors this past year since her stroke. I felt a need to get back and blog whether anyone reads it or not,because it a type of therapy for me.(Most of you feel the same!) I practically blog on facebook, anyway......lol!
Are any of you on facebook? You can find me as Jackie Kimball. Hope to see some friend requests, but let me know the name of your blog,so I'll know who you are.
I'll leave you with our dog Sweeties new "siblings". Sweetie ,our doxie/chi mix ,was lonesome ,so Sugar Baby (the chihuahua) came to us last summer. We were so happy to have this sweet little darling. She's 5 lbs,is house broken, and just need a whole lot of loving. What we DID NOT know was that she was going to have puppies! What a surprise when she got bigger and bigger. Took me a while to figure it out!So that is how the little black dog came. He is a chorkie mix.(Chihuahua/Yorkie). He was born with a cleft palate,and was rejected by Sugar Baby because he could not nurse. It was touch and go,feeding him every two hours round the clock. I sure got bleary -eyed! He is now 7 months old,Sugar baby adores him, and he weighs 4 lbs. (Pssssst...don't tell the others,but that little guy has the spot as favorite dog....EVER!)
Above is Sweetie drooling over her "siblings". Next is our little guy whose name is Houston,by the way. (Houston, we HAVE a problem.)
Finally ,here is my daughter Lisa. (With Houston,our newest.)
........ At a fluffy size,and 62 years of wrinkles, I don't take many pictures lately. I'll try to update soon. Now I am off to visit a few of you a day for a week or two!
.AS always,thanks for dropping by!~~~~Jackie~~~
