Recap of week 33 for Group 1

 -

Silver Birches in Mist at Dawn in Scotland


Akinwolf

Wednesday-Me and Rocky 2 1/4 in the 90's degree sauna of the south. Also.................ta da...cleaned office and filed ALL paperwork!!!

Yes, folks, it's only taken me ONE year to do it!

Miracles never cease


Andie: Is still able to work, but no walking for awhile. She is in transitition with new abx, acupuncture and massage therapy.


Bob

3 miles in 98% weather and you can peg for another mile tonight with the dogs.

I also walked down and up 6 flights of stairs.

More biophoton therapy while I was walking, I scared the neighborhood folk and took my shirt off.

Of course the neighborhood folk comprised of birds, one deer and a couple of chipmunks.

I got back to work and walked up the 6 flights, I knew to take a t-shirt and switched shirts after a few minutes.

I was a little heated and am probably showing off a musky cologne.

All in all, I really enjoyed every step, as I now really enjoy telling you about it.

So cool to hear Bob.


Cathy

Just checking in to see all the familar names and some new ones too. Still not up and moving very well.

Still waiting on a phone call from my LLMD after he figures out what some tests mean and ideas on where I should be going for this IV. Was suppose to be on Wed, but still no call, so if I don't hear from him by tomorrow afternoon, I'll call and see what's up.

I have more trouble with the "unknown" than the knowing.

Really just wanted to say "hello" though. Keep walking and I'll catch up to all of you when I can.


Don alias Handy Man


KAM

Sunday am: 100 min outing via sitting upright in power chair to grocery store. A first for me. I think.

Sunday am: able to put dishes in dishwasher. About 10 min on feet. First week I have been able to keep the kitchen sink and counters clean by putting dirty dishes in dishwasher

Monday am: outing to dog park via car (not sure how long.

Monday afternoon: round the block in power chair. (again, will check later and see how long)

Monday pm: outing to PO in PC


Tues am: Water therapy. 1st of 8 Able to do 4 arm exercises, 4 legs exercises for 2 min each.

Then things started going down hill and I was used up.

Tues pm: run to PO via PC

Wed am: 20 min on trail

Thurs: outing in PC to PO.

Fri am: one and a half hour outing..around the block in power chair, then onto senior van and the grocery store.


Lou Lou

9th...2.75 miles for me today (30 minutes treadmill and 20 minutes elliptical machine)

12th...1.5 miles for me and an hour of weights. Sore today from the weights . . . but a "good" sore.

Friday the 13th!!!

1.5 miles and 1 hour of weights. The weight training is hurting me more than the walking!


TuTu

Grand Teton's reflecting in the Snake River

Recap of week 8 for group 2 (2 months now)

Awesome Ali

Well, leave for Seattle tomorrow. Will fly by myself for the first time in 11 yrs of marriage.

Waiting to hear how it went Ali. HOpe you are OK.


Larkspur:

well, I did about 30 minutes of toning/strength training today...which was too much since I haven't done that in about 6 months.

Plus, I did this after I straightened the house for a couple hours this morning...I only made a slight dent btw

then I went food shopping with my husband and thought "uh oh..."

Will I ever learn?!


Sat - walked 1.3 miles with my husband...we just missed a big rain storm!


MTree

Hi Everyone.......

I finally caught up to all the posts since being away last week....

we seem to be growing....

been pretty active this week......mostly mundane inside and outside work at home...but I don't mind mundane....

unpacking...and getting caught up with laundry
today I managed to get in a walk....a mile.

it was sooooo hot out that I waited for Dh to come home and we walked in the evening.....the heat just wilts me.....

hope everyone is doing ok....and walking...or trying to walk...or thinking about walking....or just tapping your toes is good too.

last week was a bit of a jummble of things.....

I walked 2 miles.....with my walking.....
but did a lot of other active stuff....

I gave the dog a bath....
I went to the doctors all by myself and drove there all by myself......
Helped DH clean the garage....
did some attic stuff....
went through tons of paperwork....mostly medical stuff...

I have to make walking more of a priority though...and put more effort into that......
my body needs to get stronger.....because while doing all of those things I find that I'm to physicaly weak....


Tracy

Last we heard from Tracy she was herxing dag gum it. I saw a video recently on herxing if you are intersted Tracy. Hope you are OK.


Lou B

Hot outdoors in NOrth NJ so Lou B stayed indoors and did:

2 miles on treadmill in 40 minutes,

15 minutes easy on rower,

3 miles on stationary bike in 15 minutes.

I was going to do some free weights but I ran out-of-energy.

Not a bad start Lou B

Mon am: 1 hr outing in pc

Good to be out. First 30 min went fast. 2nd 30 min seemed to take forever to get home. Even Rosie kept wanting to rest in the shading spots.

I was not doing well enough to stop and rest. If I keep moving it takes my mind off of feeling yucky. Started feeling better towards the end.

We got back home by 9 am. Very hot out all ready.

Hosed Rosie down when we went by an enterprise dealer. A person was washing their cars so asked if I could hose rosie down to help cool her off.

Mon pm: 1 hr outing in power chair

Tues am: around the block in my power chair

I am guessing this heat is going to slow us down a bit.

It is hot here. Lou B said it is hot in NJ. How are things where you all are?

We will be getting what is called the Monsoons soon. Looking forward to them. But, it is tricky when you are out in the power chair.

You can leave the house and have clear skies. Go into a store. come out and have a down pour going on.

STILL waiting on a call back from my doctor, so nothing new to report on my LLMD transfer, but do still want to stay connected to you great people here, even though I'm not doing the walking at this time.

Love the great scenery pictures, Kam. It's nice to escape to some of them, even if only in my dreams.

Me and Rocky a little over 3 miles today! Kam, it's in the 90's down here. I went around 8:30 in the a.m. to beat the heat.

Did a couple of hours of cleaning outside, pump house and getting rid of cobwebs around the house and then got some natural biophotons too.

A really good day for me.

BTW, spooked a doe, she blew (like deer do) and then high-tailed it out of there. I was about 50 feet from her. Also saw a beautiful red cardinal.

Hope I didn't overdo!

Good to hear from you Cathy, TuTu and Akinwolf.

Wed am: 10 min loop in forest.

So happy I was able to be in the forrest...especially while it was still cool and damp.

Amazed at anger I felt when I saw the 7 work trucks on the land about a mile of the two miles to trail.

There is an auction this Saturday for the plots of land on that stretch. More pine trees being cut down and land leveled.

Housing will be coming soon to that area.

I most likely would be bidding on a plot myself if I had the funds.

And would need to cut some trees down to build.

So, I understand. But, still have mixed feelings about the forest turning into more housing.

Sorry there is no summary yet.

Crazy week. Busy. I'll get to it as soon as I can. Promise.

I will miss her, though, She is the best.

No worries Lou.

What do you all think of the idea of having someone keep up with milestones?

Like Lou being officially cut loose. [Smile]

And Ali traveling on her own to see LLMD.

And I know there are many more.

Thanks for the PM Lymetoo - actually my husband (who works in computers) figured it out. flickr was giving me the wrong url for some reason for the photo.

Anyway, didn't walk today, but here is a pic of a collage I made of a cardinal last year. It is even sitting on a branch like in Kam's photo. Lyme disease turned me into an artist [Smile]

If you see a cardinal, listen closely!

Well, hang onto your hats, kiddies! LouLou has FINALLY made it here to record last week's results. Better late than never?

LAST WEEK (followed by grand totals beginning 4/27/2008)

Andie -- is on new abx, which we are hoping will help to get her back on the walking trail (GRAND TOTAL = 1.5 miles)

Akin -- 2.25 miles, plus office cleaning and paper sorting! What an accomplishment! (GRAND TOTAL = 27 miles)

Don -- Just Don is in his new house. Stop in and say "Hello" when you are finished unpacking, Don.

TuTu -- 3.5 miles! The rain beat her to the track one day. (GRAND TOTAL = 28.5 miles)

Cathy -- is waiting to see if she should go the IV route. She is ready to start healing! (GRAND TOTAL = 2 hours 10 minutes & 1.75 miles)

LouB -- Welcome to the group! We are happy to have you with us. 2 miles treadmill, 15 minutes rowing machine and 3 miles bike.

Bob --4 miles and natural biophoton therapy! plus 12 flights of stairs. I am counting the stairs as 1 mile -- and now Bob has hit the Century Mark! (GRAND TOTAL = 100 miles)

Kam, can you find an appropriate award for our hero Bob, who is our first 100 mile walker? Congratulations Bob!!

Here are our grand totals for the group:

For those measuring in mileage: 287.25 miles
For those measuring in time: 77.25 hours

And Kam, another milestone this week. Not only am I in remission, but my LLMD has cut me loose! No more LLMD appointments!

I will miss her, though. Not only is she an amazing doctor, but she has a very caring heart. Just a fabulous human being.

I know there more Lymies out there that are ready to start incorporating exercise into your treatment. We are here to encourage and support anyone that wants to add exercise as part of their healing.

So, please join in!

I'm not a member of this group yet, but would like to report my progress.

My main symptoms have always been CNS (brain fog, memory and other IQ stuff), and began to feel more tired after a few months of IV abx.

Have stopped abx of all kinds for 1+ month now, and will start with Dr. Zhang's Herbal protocol soon.

I started going to gym last Monday after skipping it for almost 5 months. I've kept up with 1hour of workout since then (walking on treadmill, clliptical, and bicycle). Each time I'd have lots of sweats. It helps my mood, but in the last two days my brain fog is nastier than ever.

Well, I'll keep exercising+sweating at least 1hour a day, whatever treatment options I'm going with.

Thanks for listening.

Justag -- Of course you are part of our group. You are here. And I am happy to see that you have found us.

An hour a day is awesome.

Thursday -- 3 miles. And it is so beautiful here today that I am thinking about taking a walk this evening.

Going to the gym has gotten me back to a regular exercise routine.

But I long to walk outside. Where I can feel nature and the energy of the river.

Last night I took a 1/2 mile stroll to and back from the river. And just sat there for about a half hour watching the ducks and fish.

2 miles this morning and and hour of weights.

Have a good weekend, all!

Wow Lou, That sounds great. Good to be around water and nature.

Fri am: outing in power chair, then got in car and drove around a little. Good to be out...but faded faster than I would like. Resting now and then will fix breakfast.

I'm still not back up and walking, but do keep checking in here to follow up on your progress.

Larkspur, I LOVED the cardinal. How creative. I've never had even the slightest artistic bone in my entire body, so I always respect when people can do things like that.

Lou, Again, I can't say enough how happy I am that you were sprung from your doctor. That is the type of thing we all really need to hear. To know it's really possible.

Kam, Enjoying all your pictures. Heck, I don't walk at this time, but I do keep reading this thread and getting lost in far away places from your pictures. Thanks for sharing.

All, that's a lot of walking and impressive numbers. Hopefully I'll be joining in and trying to keep up with you soon.

My LLMD has called the last two days and after telephone tag yesterday he did say he should be getting back to me today after talking to this more well known LLMD in regards to my future path. This unknown is the hardest part for me.

Keep on walking and although I'm not racking up the numbers like you all are at this point, I am still reading and with you in thought and spirit.

Summary of week 9 for group 2

Awesome Ali

2 weeks now of life taking a big turn in the road for her. You are in our thoughts Ali.

Justag

Justag....just started. [Smile]

My main symptoms have always been CNS (brain fog, memory and other IQ stuff), and began to feel more tired after a few months of IV abx.

Have stopped abx of all kinds for 1+ month now, and will start with Dr. Zhang's Herbal protocol soon.

I started going to gym last Monday after skipping it for almost 5 months. I've kept up with 1hour of workout since then (walking on treadmill, clliptical, and bicycle). Each time I'd have lots of sweats. It helps my mood, but in the last two days my brain fog is nastier than ever.

Well, I'll keep exercising+sweating at least 1hour a day, whatever treatment options I'm going with.


Larkspur:

June 18:I've been a lazy bones lately - I don't know what happened

I've got to get moving again!

June 19: Walked 1.5 miles today

Didn't hear from Lou B this week. But, do know he or someone was working on the site in the wee hours as I could not sleep and it was down.

Summary of week 34


Akinwolf

June 17:

Me and Rocky a little over 3 miles today! Kam, it's in the 90's down here. I went around 8:30 in the a.m. to beat the heat.

Did a couple of hours of cleaning outside, pump house and getting rid of cobwebs around the house and then got some natural biophotons too.

A really good day for me.


Andie:

Don't think we heard from Andie this week. She was doing great and then had to slow down some. Still able to work but on new abx and trying other things to help step things up again.


Bob

Don't think we heard from Bob this week either. Seems he had a birthday lately. Perhaps he is still recovering from that.


Cathy

June 17:

June 19th:

Thursday -- 3 miles. And it is so beautiful here today that I am thinking about taking a walk this evening.

Going to the gym has gotten me back to a regular exercise routine.

But I long to walk outside. Where I can feel nature and the energy of the river.


June 20th: Last night I took a 1/2 mile stroll to and back from the river. And just sat there for about a half hour watching the ducks and fish.

2 miles this morning and and hour of weights.


TuTu

June 17:

Oh, the weather was AWESOME here today!! Went out around 4:45 and it was only about 77 degrees and fairly dry as far as humidity.

Wonderful, wonderful!! Won't last forever, so we're enjoying it while it lasts~!!

Walked 1.50 miles!

June 19: Walked 1.50 miles!
