Life Lived Horizontally



I'm supposed to be on my way to Miami. I had appointments scheduled for two spa days. Sadly, I have new health issues and I am too weak to travel. I thought I was having tachycardia but my Dr said that my heart is not beating too fast it is beating too hard. I feel ok until I try to stand or walk. I'm having more tests on Monday. You are invited to my pity party. Please bring refreshments.

Oh, I'm so sorry. That stinks! Sounds like a local spa day and some good chocolate is in order?

Brigitta said...

Health concerns are never good. And they are even worst when they infer with life, especially fun trips like to Miami. Sorry! I hope your Dr. can help you.

Nancy said...

I'll be praying for you! I enjoy a good pity party myself. Good luck!

Robin said...

Thanks for inviting me to the pity party! I am wearing bright yellow to cheer you up and I have the funniest story to tell you! I brought super chocolate fudge bundt cake and big box of Dr Pepper.

Dang, girl! You NEED a spa vacay!

Lauren in GA said...

I am so sorry!

Do you prefer chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream?

Scratch that...I'll bring both!

diane,
when we have these challenging moments, it is often both healing and cathartic to step outside our own selves and see what we can do for others.
you have my mailing address. send me the ticket to miami and call the spa to change the reservations to my name. i am happy to help you heal.

Heather said...

Ilene said...

Pooh-pooh. Definite reason for a pity party.

Rae said...

Diane!! NOT good! I will gladly accept your party invitation and will bring all the Girl Scout cookies you could possibly eat!!

calibosmom said...

You just sit yourself down at the computer and buy yourself some new shoes. Shoesday is one of my favorite days! Sorry for your change of plans...you have my pity! Missing spa treatments makes me super grouchy! GET BETTER!!!

tawnya said...

Oh, Diane. Seriously. What do you need? Let me know and let me know what they say!

Jenibelle said...

You know Andrea can not be left alone to herself, especially in a strange town. I generously volunteer to accompany/chaperone her.

I am making fudge brownies with marshmallow and a fudge frosting. (I am bringing Diet Pepsi to null the calories for the brownines). It'll take me about 8 hours to get there. Keep the porch light on.
I'll cook for you and I'll bring my friend Pam, she'll clean.

Keep us in touch---I hate your disease of the week.

Kara Jayne said...

I am so sorry Diane!!! My husband is off to Miami tomorrow...leaving me with my four small children for five days. We can have a pity party together. ...not to imply that my situation is as worthy of pity as yours. I'll be thinking of you and sending love vibes.

Kara Jayne said...

ha ha...my verification word was manless...just like I will be!!

Tristan said...

Oh my! I am so sorry! I will keep you in my prayers! I hope it isn't anything serious. And I hope you get to do your spa days soon!

Paige said...

have a masseuse, facialist, pedi and mani person come over. You deserve it.

Katie said...

Oh so sorry! I hope the tests figure out what needs to be done to help you out! You're in my prayers...

Brandon and Tenille said...

Diane this is not the news I want to hear. Make sure you keep us posted on your health. I am so sorry you are going through all of this it sounds horrible....

Liz said...

I've been wondering what's up, now I know! I will be right over with chocolate chip cookies and an armful of 'chick flicks'! We can eat cookies and watch movies that make us cry! Or, we could have a marathon monopoly game for old time's sake!!

ferntyler said...

SO lame - no couples' spa treatments?! I'm so sorry - you've been looking forward to that trip for a while, too... any news on the disease of the week?

The Family Johnson said...

I'll bring heavenly brownies!!!! I am so sorry Diane! I wish I were there to cheer you up!

Bridget said...

As always, Andrea's comments make me laugh.

I am so sorry you're having health problems. And to have to miss a spa day because of it is doubly as sad. Good luck!

Bryn said...

Big hugs coming your way. Hope you are doing better soon so you can get to the spa. If anyone deserves it, it's you!

This and That said...

Oh- hope you feel better soon !!!

Jen said...

Holy Cow!! You poor thing. Missing spa days are never a good thing. I am so sorry. I definitely think that some online shopping is in order. Hang in there and let me know if I can help out in anyway! I pass Nothing Bundt Cakes atleast a few times a day :D

martha corinna said...

I'm so sorry.

What can I bring?

Sally said...

Diane, we are thinking about you and hoping for a quick diagnosis/ quick and successful treatment/ quick recovery and then slow spa treatments.

PS Andrea's comment is best.
