About the Celticlady, Updated



I am a wife of 37 years and mother and grandmother. I have 4 grown children and 5  grandchildren.Possibly 6 I live in northern Wisconsin. I had been employed for 24 years at a local nursing home. I no longer work due to a disability. I started blogging in September of 2009 to have something to do. Since I love to read, I started doing reviews and I love it!! It is fun to discover new authors out there. I love to travel, even though we have not traveled for a long time  I have been to California three times, New Bern NC. a few times, Florida a few times, Ireland twice and to the Dominican Republic 


Haven't updated in awhile
I had 3 hospitalizations in a month but I think that things have been straightened out. My heartrate was running at around 150ish, and that is not doing anything. I had to go into the hospital so they can monitor a medication called Sotolal to see how I handle it. It went well and I am on it now. It worked. My heartrate is in the 50's 60's. I feel pretty good right now, hope this lasts.

Hubby is doing good, passed another birthday, 78 yo now. Still doing his City Council and County Board, doing the social distancing.
This quaranteening is starting to get old, I get that we need to do it and wear masks when out and about. Our lifestyle really has not changed too much. We live in a small town so there really is not too much to do, I think that it is just the thought that we can't go places.
UPDATE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hubby had cancer over 7 years ago, went through the whole cancer thing by having the chemo treatments. He was cured now there is one small tumor back.He had a few colonoscopies and the results were that the small tumor that was there should come out and it is cancerous

Tommy sees a doctor at the Cancer clinic next week and then we go from there. He will be cured again, I am sure.

I saw my surgeon for my neck and back issues. yesterday. There will be no surgery at this time. He thinks that there is more going then the neck and back issues, like neurological muscular disorder doctor of which I will be referred to after I see me, my neurologist. I am having a lot of weird things going on like unable to walk properly, spasms, spilling and dropping things. Oh yes, I fell out of bed the other day.

Update: September 2019
Heading into another winter, well soon anyway. My health is better in some ways and in other ways not. 
I had been treated for Polymaygia Rheumatica, now the doctor says that I don't have that but the pain is from Fibromyalgia.

My balance issues have not gone away, the MRI found that I have a protruding disc in the C7-T1 area and also one in my lower back. I am looking at 2 surgeries down the road. Not too sure about that. The one in the neck would fuse my neck to the point that I could not move my neck. 

Other than that, life goes one and books get read!

Time for another update:
In the year since I had heart surgery, I have had lots of other things happen. I was hospitalized last January for an infection. Then I was diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica and put on a high dosage of Prednisone. I have been weaned off that and will be off completely by the end of February. 
Last month I ended up with a partial bicep tear just from pushing an oriental rug that was in front of the couch. Getting therapy for that.
So last week we ended up with an ice storm and got  6 inches of snow on top of that. I walk with a cane due to balance issues and I was on my way to therapy for the bicep tear and my cane went out and down I went. Ended up in urgent care and came home with an air cast on my ankle. Weird that that happened because I landed flat on my back. Now I have a severely sprained ankle and foot.
Wishing for the winter to end.

As far as my reading, I am trying to keep up, bear with me authors, I am working on my stack slowly. I will get to your book, but it will take time. 

I can also be found on Twitter as @CelticLady1953 and on Facebook as Kathleen Kelly(Celticlady1953). 



Thanks for being interested in me and what I enjoy, reading, blogging, computers, spending time with my family is, of course, the most important part of my life.
