See the empty spot on the other side of my wheelchair? There was a porta potty there from when I was on restriction because of the blood clot. No one came to take it away and I was tired of looking at it so I snuck it into the hallway and put it under the fire extinguisher! Not an easy thing to do in a wheelchair!!! Haha!!! We'll see if the night staff realizes it!! What can I say, I'm bored and miss my family!!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. #spoonie #hospitalprobs #pots #fibro #butyoudontlooksick #whatswrongwithmyleg

More progress on my project from @in_stitches_x Question for all of you; you know I'm in a nursing home/rehabilitation center. Is it rude for me to stitch when I have visitors? I feel rude, not so much in front of my crafty friends, but how about non crafty people? Thoughts?? #crossstitch #crafts #handmade

Ok, finally getting to this!! Tagged by the beautiful @siobhanmaddison 1. I don't like poultry. No turkey. I'll eat chicken only if it's well disguised! 2. Sky Diving- I don't like hights!! 3. It's a tie between how thin I am or how white I am. 4. Anything by Michael Jackson. ***gasps*** I'm sorry, just being honest! 5. Not washing with soap after using the bathroom. Water by itself doesn't take away germs!!! 6. MaryAnne - No offense to anyone. It was my husband's serious girlfriend before we met. Yes, we're married 21 years and I still feel jealous. That's me, get over it cause I clearly can't! 7. I think I'm going to go with the good old hashtag #butyoudontlooksick Love being told how great I look by all my visitors. I know they're trying to make me feel better. Only another spoonie can truly understand this. 8. Chicken!! Grosses me out!! 9. Spiders, hands down! 10. Face lift. Every time I see pics of Mary Tyler Moore or other celebrities and see their mouths stretched across their whole face I get freaked out! I tag @reevebetweenthelines @poppybead @sisterawake777 @keepshiningkeepsmiling and @mgrutza17 Hope you'll play with us!! πŸ’–πŸ’–

Progress on my creativi-tea #crossstitch from @in_stitches_x I had hoped to get more done tonight but my heart had its own agenda. It decided to become tachycardic and went to 196. I think every nurse in the center was in my room!!! Thankfully they got it down with meds and fluids so no hospital run!! Phew!! #spoonie #pots #fibro #butyoudontlooksick #whatswrongwithmyleg #crafts

I'm so excited!! My #thirtyone bag and wallet from the lovely @gypsyspoonie_ arrived today!!! My husband will bring it to me tomorrow so I can drool on it, lol!! I won't have much use for it while I'm in the rehabilitation center, but when I get out, I'll be transferring everything over!! So excited!! It's nice to have things to look forward to and I thank my wonderful husband @asahsci for celebrating me walking with the walker for 60 ft!! (It's all my right leg and arms as my left leg still won't work, but I made it 60 ft!) #spoonie #pots #fibromyalgia #celiac #raynauds #butyoudontlooksick #whatswrongwithmyleg

Cool transport ride to the hospital. Turns out I had a #pots episode while waiting for my leg to have ultrasound and ended up in ER. Four hours later, they confirmed I have a blood clot and now will be getting blood thinners injected into my abdomen twice a day. Oh joy... #spoonie #pots #fibro #raynauds #butyoudontlooksick #whatswrongwithmyleg

Tagged by @shmirette to give 7 facts about myself!! Here we go: 1. Favorite movies are the Terminator series. 2. Love hard rock but secretly love sappy love songs from the 80's. 3. I'm a terrible dancer, but don't care! 4. I love anything pink and purple. 5. I could eat Plum Tree's Mae fun every day - yum!!! 6. My husband is my best friend. This has been proven even more so over these last two weeks in the way he's cared for me both physically and emotionally- I don't even know how to show my appreciation, but if the shoe were on the other foot, I'd do the same. I suppose that's the true meaning of love and loyalty. Which brings me to the last, 7. I am fiercely loyal to my friends! I tag @lovekensa @siobhanmaddison and @jillsamter
