💜Pokey, meet Dr. Heuter. ❤️Dr Heuter, meet Pokey. 💙 🤝Today my internist hubby, who is now working again with me, finally met my patient of 19 months Pokey 🐶
🙌 Her lymphoma is in remission on maintenance chemo 😍 I think they liked each other
💖 I love them both so much
"Let people in. I was surrounded by so many great people that helped me through my treatment. They all wanted to help. Sometimes they didn't know how to. If I had done a better job accepting help and letting people know what I really needed instead of just toughing it out, the help could have been even more amazing. Don't just find something to keep you busy - find something to challenge you! I was told that I could take work off for the time I was sick or continue on with proper precautions. Sitting at home and stewing in my sickness wasn't going to happen. Coming to school and seeing the kids helped me. My family was #1 and I couldn't have done it without them, but the kids challenged me in a different way that added to the support I was getting at home. Being positive made the everyday challenges more manageable. There will be tough times. There is no getting around that fact. Dwelling on those times or the possibility of the negative makes the other times worse for you. Stay positive and lean on your community of support. YOU CAN WIN THE DAY!" - Pat @coachpob 🌿
Cannabis, crafts, tunes 🎶, and manifesting 🙌🏼🙏🏼💚... I can’t think of a better way to recover from my cross country trip. 🎨
Rest made possible by a visit from my fairy godmother 🧚🏻♀️ from @homecareassistance 😍 I am loving this company! It’s perfect for someone who doesn’t need regular home care or nurses. I don’t have to make any kind of commitment, other than a 4 hour block of time. But I can do just one visit a month, or call urgently and get someone in every day for a week. #lymies they can be a LIFESAVER and keep you from reaching the breaking point. 💚 And they have franchises around the world and throughout the US 🌎
This little guy ( my grandson)has gone through more in his short life than most of us endure our whole life. Diagnosed at 5 months with leukemia and spent 7 and a half months in the hospital for treatment. He is in remission and doing great . Please say a prayer that his counts stay good and he keeps on doing well. #praymorefortheodore#remission#leukemiafighter#grandbaby#teddy
It's not always about losing weight... on the left, 2004, I'd been on the RA meds for just under a year and days would go by without any food crossing my lips ☠ on the right 3 weeks ago... 10 weeks away from running my 2nd full marathon 🏃♀️ I've been off the RA meds for over 2 years now and I've never felt better 💪#ketolifestyle 🥚🧀🍖🥓
Yes there was a very dark period in between where I picked up a lot of weight, which was mainly due to me quitting cigarettes and then binge eating once the kids went to bed 🙄 but with hard work and commitment, I've made it out the other side 😁🔥
Live your best life.
Time is precious.
When you are diagnosed with a life threatening condition you really realise how important it is to spend your time wisely. You really realise how precious your time is. You are reminded how precious your life is!
You realise that it is important to live your best life.
Worry less about things you can't control. Whinge Less generally. Sort out the things you can control that are causing you stress or anxiety. Laugh more. Really try to approach each day with a positive mindset not a negative one. Spent time with people that make you feel good and stay away from people who simply load their negativity on you. Stop making excuses for why you haven't done things and start making that to do list. Then try actually actioning those things. Also stop excusing other people when they give you lame excuses for why they fail to act. Taking positive action in your job, life etc really reaps rewards. Simply cut those negativities out of your life. Living life more positively is so much better for your mind and health.
Get out there and live.
It isn't always easy but it's worth the effort to really sort our shit out and live the best lives we can.
There are lots of people all over the world who's lives are sadly really unhappy through no fault of their own. Those living in war torn countries, living in fear or persecution make me feel so fortunate to have the life I have. On their behalf and behalf of those who have lost or loosing their health/ cancer battles we really should live our best lives.
Just live. Live your best life. Smile every day when possible. Spent your time wisely.
