2--2-11

I woke up this morning kind of unusual. From the hips down both felt swelled and heavy and partially numb. It felt like I had ran a mile or been mountain climbing. The Neuropathy in my feet was unbelievable. This was a first like that. I took my pills yesterday actually on time, didn't forget any. Denise kind of helped me around and after some messaging, she done one, I done the other, I was about to walk down the hall slowly to the bathroom. I took an extra Gabipentin (spelling) and continued to work with the legs after she left for work for about an hour. Then I started walking around for another hour or so, taking breaks. They finally came back but I remained weak the whole day. The pain and stiffness I haven't had like that since the chemo, which done it every time. But that's been a year, over a year. I'm not sure what that was.

Hi Anthony,
Hope you are feeling better today. What a bummer for sure, especially not knowing exactly why. I'll pop over to the other site.
Take care, Lori

I'm not sure what that was. Thank God it was an isolated event so far. After a day I went back like I was. Strange.

Tony, I've been following/reading your blog since I saw you featured on "Beyond & Back" a month back or so and continue to pray for you. Hang in there man.

Hey Anthony, it's Shanna from Missouri. Hope you're doing better than you were in your last post. I said a prayer for you at church Sunday. Take care! :)

anthony7 said...

Hey Shanna. Thank you for the prayers. I'm doing a whole lot better now. I'm getting more good days than bad so that is always a plus.

Hey Anthony, it's Shanna again! Just wanted to remind you that spring is coming! Groundhog says only 5 more weeks till spring!

Oh how I can't wait. Already have my seeds in and waiting. I think I'll grow some popcorn this year for a change too.

Hope you're feeling better! That sounds rough. Do you have a dog? They really lift my spirits when I'm having a rough day. They also poo on the floor occasionally.. haha :) But the good outweighs the bad! If you have one, then you already know all this lol Just don't want someone as awesome as you to suffer. Praying for you.

Hi, Anthony,
I saw you on beyond and back today. That was a very moving account and one of the best documentaries I've seen on NDE's. Your story was awesome and excellently described as was the whole programme and the other two interviewees.
You are having a very tough time at the moment, I see, but you are one hell of a character. The sheer strength in your personality is there for everybody to see.
I want you to know that your courage have made a big impression on me.
Very best Wishes, Tim

Anonymous, Thanks for the compliment and great advice and especially for the prayers. We have 2 Great Pyrenees outside and they have 2 puppies. Then we have mighty dog inside, lol. Boston Terrier, 1/2 Chihuahua. Then all the other animals too. I think everybody should have a dog. God Bless, Anthony

Tim, Thanks for the compliment and good wishes. The Bio Chanel done an excellent job. They show me as I am. I gotta confess that the strength I have is loaned to me from above and I have got a great support team. I'll fight until it's is time and then I'll go home and hopefully stay this time. Denise is the stronger of the two of us. God Bless, Anthony

Hi I have never wrote into anything before but after seeing you and your wife on the show I have been following your updates. I find myself checking it all the time to see if you have a good day or not. Some how in the short time on the show you have made alot of people feel like they know you. Not alot of people can do that and it is a great thing, you have alot of people on your side praying for you and your family. My heart goes out to your wife who has to worry and watch all that you go through. I wish her strength.
Your good people and I pray good things for all of you.

Anonymous, Thank you for the kind words and prayers. In person I'm pretty much the same, never met a stranger. Or, as Denise says, never shuts up, lol. Denise is a good woman, exceptionally good. I try with my twisted sense of humor make her smile and laugh as much as I can, hopefully to make up for the tears I caused her. We dated for three months and got married, that in March will be 22 years ago. I told her the other night that she is still waiting on the good part along with the health part, lol. Thank you so much for the prayers. God Bless, Anthony
