Lifestyle Letter

The Joyfulness of November BIXBY, BROKEN ARROW & JENKS

I

love this time of year. November is a magical month for many reasons. The beauty of the changing landscape with leaves blowing into jump-worthy piles. The cool, crisp air giving a lightness to the days and apricot-gold sunsets bringing on ever-longer nights. This is the time of sweet anticipation. The time we plan and prepare for holiday gatherings of family and friends.

Each November, my mother and I take a day and visit our favorite shops’ holiday open houses to get into the spirit. For us, holiday planning is not complete without visiting our places at the Farm, Utica Square and The Vineyard on Memorial as well as a few spots in Bartlesville and Pawhuska. There the f lavor and style of our Thanksgiving begins to take form. On Thanksgiving Day, we celebrate by bringing the family together for an afternoon feast gathering at a beautifully decorated table adorned with china, crystal and silver collected by family members over the past 100 years. A bouquet of fall-colored leaves with red and yellow roses sits in the middle of table lighted by the dimmed Austrian chandelier. The prayer is given by my brother and then we dig in. It doesn’t take long to finish the food which took days to prepare and polite dinner conversation makes way to the retelling of childhood stories, wild claims and laughs.

The tradition of the day continues with a walk in the woods by the entire family, young and old. We stroll to the river with half of us crossing the footbridge and the other half refusing by sitting on the banks with the dogs who accompany us. We make our way back to the house and rush like crazy to make it to the Lights On ceremonies at Utica Square. There we jump right from celebrating Thanksgiving to Christmas by singing carols and welcoming Santa. We love it. It’s our tradition and the anticipation of this special time makes it even sweeter.

It all happened so quickly I was at an appointment and stepped out because I couldn’t catch my breath. My inhaler wasn’t working. Gasping for air, I suddenly felt myself sliding down the wall. Someone called 911, and I was taken by ambulance to Hillcrest South. After a quick examination, the specially trained Emergency Department team identified the problem and worked to open my airway. I was having a life-threatening asthma attack caused by an allergic reaction. While treating me, the caring staff kept me calm and reassured me that I would be okay. I’m so grateful for their compassion and expertise. They saved my life.

OUTSIDE THE BOX

Designers are trained to think differently and will present creative ideas and concepts that may not have been thought about.  They visualize the overall picture while also giving the home that “WOW” factor.

UNIQUE

GIFT IDEA

Do you have a friend or loved one who is really hard to buy for that may want ideas for their home? Hire an Interior Designer for a consultation on a special project.  BEAUTY AND

FUNCTION

Is a new kitchen, living room or custom closet in your dreams?  Designers assess how you live in the space and create a plan to make it functional and beautiful. 

HOLIDAY

REFRESH

The Holidays are quickly approaching.  There may not be enough time left for a remodel, but there is time to change paint colors and furniture. A Designer will work with you to make quick, easy changes that have maximum impact.  COMMUNICATION

A significant amount of time is spent planning for and creating an idea. You don’t want the ideas to get lost in translation.    Designers work with tradespeople and speak the “construction” language. They are your voice on the job site to ensure plans are followed. 

LIGHTEN UP

It’s that time of year when daylight is shorter and your home is feeling dark. A Designer can suggest how to layer your lighting to add brightness and drama. BUDGETING

Designers select the colors and materials then show you their ideas and drawings, saving you precious time. They understand budgets and can advise where and how to best spend your money.

DRY EYES  are common as you age. Common symptoms can include itching, watering, or a gritty, dry sensation. The onset of menopause, certain medications, as well as environmental factors and increased computer use can all contribute to dry eyes. Treatment options can include prescribed eye drops or punctual plugs, a procedure where a small silicon plug is inserted into the puncta to reduce tear evaporation. Nutritional therapy can also be beneficial for people who suffer from dry eyes.

Through proper diagnosis and treatment these issues can be addressed, monitored and treated.  Presbyopia, dry eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration are some of the most prevalent conditions effecting us as we age.  16

PRESBYOPIA  is the inability to focus at near due to age related changes in the lens of the eye.

Recent advances in cataract surgery include small incision and laser assisted surgery. Multi focal lens implants are also available to address near vision needs following cataract surgery. 


MACULAR DEGENERATION 

GLAUCOMA  is a disease of the optic nerve, usually caused by an increase of pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma is normally free of any symptoms during the early stages, so regularly scheduled   eye exams are important for early glaucoma detection and treatment. Common therapies include prescription eyedrops as well as laser  and surgical options.

is a disease of the central area of the retina and is more commonly found in people over the age of 60. People who smoke have an increased risk for developing macular degeneration. The most common symptom is a decrease in central vision. There are two types of macular degeneration (AMD): wet and dry. Wet AMD is characterized by atypical blood vessels beneath the macula of the retina and can usually be treated through medical procedures to slow and sometimes stop the progression of the blood vessels.  Dry AMD is most commonly caused by tissue changes in the macula. There is currently no treatment for dry AMD but preventative measures include the use of proper ultraviolet protection and nutritional therapy such as antioxidants.  

Age can bring a number of changes that effect vision. Regular eye exams are the most effective way to address these concerns and improve the quality of life. Early detection and prevention are key.

he approaching holidays bring a special lightness and feeling of anticipation to Tulsans. You can see in their smiles that Christmas is coming. Soon, family and friends will be visiting and now is the time to decorate with festive holiday trimmings. For inspiration, many Tulsans participate in the annual Cascia Hall Christmas Walk – a tour of four homes in Midtown Tulsa decorated for the season by local florists and designers. “The Christmas Walk is a 34-year tradition in Tulsa,” says Cheryl Baber, co-chair of the event and a member of the Cascia Parent Faculty Association (CPFA). “In addition to the home tour, we also have a Holiday Boutique featuring close to 60 vendors offering an array of exceptional gifts and décor.  Those who attend the event often choose to have Sunday brunch in our Bistro as well.  Many people see it as a wonderful way to start the season, spend time with friends and buy gifts for everyone on their Christmas list.”

Homes on the tour are located throughout Midtown and even though the event is called a “walk,” you won’t have to as shuttles will be delivering people to each of the locations. The event begins at the school at the school’s 25th Street and Utica Avenue entrance where plenty of parking can be found. Homes on the Cascia Christmas Walk include: 2116 S. Detroit Ave. – A traditional Tulsa home built in 1920. This two-story home with a full basement features a warm and modern interior. The owners of this home have a unique holiday tradition in which they play only Christmas music in the house from Nov. 26 through Christmas Day. The children call it, “All Christmas – All the Time.” 2648 S Utica Ave. – A transitional-style home built in 2007 by Nick Enterline and decorated by Charles Faudree, and Dale and Francie Gillman.

THE PERFECT PARTY GUEST Unique and Fabulous Holiday Hostess Gifts

ARTICLE DEBRA LAIZURE | PHOTOGRAPHY CHRIS HUMPHREY

‘T

is the season for falling leaves, warm sweaters, and festive gatherings. It’s officially party season. And whether it’s a birthday party, Thanksgiving dinner, or girlsnight-out affair, the perfectly polite party guest always brings a small token of thanks. Of course, wine is a nice handy gift. Flowers are quick and easy, too. But isn't it just a bit boring? Why not bring a creative little something that makes your host or hostess say, "Ooooh!" rather than a quick "thanks" as they add yet another bottle of red to their already full wine rack. Finding a fabulous gift doesn't have to be stressful or take any extra shopping time. Here are some suggestions for affordable and unique grab-and-go gifts, all conveniently found at The Vineyard on Memorial shopping center at 106th and Memorial. LIGHT UP THE PARTY Candles make a lovely gift. They can be purchased in advance and are easily stored in a closet for last-minute events or employee/neighbor/teacher gifts—bonus: your closet will smell incredible. Nest Fragrances candles (starting at $16) have become an obsession among candle connoisseurs. Exotic and tantalizing fragrances such as Grapefruit, Pumpkin Chai, Ocean Mist & Sea Salt, and Sir Elton John's Holiday Classic candle will put a smile on your host's face. Dee Dee Levine, owner of Bella's House, says, "Nest candles are highly desired. The complex fragrances create a relaxing ambience and come already packaged in a lovely gift box." Levine is thrilled about their new line of UrbanVintage candles ($22 each).

She says, "UrbanVintage candles are perfect for the holidays. They are soy-based and made with wine. The collection boasts fragrances such as Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc. The best part is they are handpoured into a stemless wine glass. So after the candle is used, you will have a new wine glass!" SWEET NOTHINGS Leave it to Nothing Bundt Cakes to take an everyday dessert and elevate it to something richly decadent. Fresh eggs, real butter, and real cream cheese signature frosting makes these sweet cakes so popular. Just stop in on your way to the party and choose from 10 delicious cake flavors, including red velvet, white chocolate raspberry, and chocolate chocolate chip. Holiday flavors include Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Chocolate. Honestly, you may never bake a cake again. Bundtlets are single serving cakes that can be gift-wrapped with cellophane and decorated with a ribbon, sentiment flag, and message card for a mere $2 in addition to the cake. Stack the bundtlets into a tower and add a beautiful flower for an additional dollar and you have a thoughtful, beautiful gift ($5.99 for one, $9.99 for two, and $13.99 for three). Can't decide on which flavor to give? Then try the Bundtinis which are smaller and sold by the dozen ($18.50). Owner Marie Hicks says, "We simply love hostess gifts. One of the things we have been doing lately is taking our 8" cake and one of the pretty cake plates we carry and wrap it up with cellophane and other embellishments. Then your hostess can have something to eat and something to keep!"

"GO" GLAMOROUS Sometimes the best gift is useful and a bit kitschy. And everyone loves a gift that provokes a giggle. Dee Siegenthaler, owner of Creative Concepts, knows this all too well. "We have had great success with our bathroom sprays. It's the perfect hostess gift that will definitely get used, especially at a party," says. She's talking about Tyler Candles Diva Glamour Do fragrantly glamorous spray, the "Before you go restroom spray". We've all seen the clever Poo-Pourri TV commercials promoting its blend of natural essential oils that creates a film on the surface of the water, a protective barrier, well...you know. Glamour Do bathroom sprays work the same way but are a bit more chic. Their top secret formula makes your movement fragrantly glamorous when you go. Just spray and Glamour Do will "do" the rest! Siegenthaler says, "We sell the sprays individually for $5 each, which is great for carrying in your purse, but we also have a wonderful Glamorous Gift Suite with a chamber spray, laundry soap, and candle for $25." Creative Concepts also sells Niven Morgan products including a holiday North Pole room spray for $18 and a beautifully boxed Winter Fig candle for $30. Bringing the perfect hostess gift will certainly make you the perfect party guest. And remember to send a handwritten thank-you note as soon as possible. It only take a few minutes and will make your host or hostess feel appreciated. November 2016 | Tulsa Lifestyle

Entertaining can flow to the impressive outdoor spaces which include a heated saltwater pool and spa, dramatic lighting, fireplaces and much more. The exceptional kitchen includes appliances such as Wolf and Sub-Zero making it easy to prepare a feast but also includes the perfect layout for those who like to gather around and help. While some guests are enjoying the kitchen area, others will have fun playing pool or enjoy a cigar seated at the beautiful custom bar. Wind down a busy day of holiday festivities with a movie night in the awesome theater room with plush leather seating.

around your teeth can support an oral appliance. If you are a good candidate for an oral appliance, the dentist will choose the best appliance for you. They will take impressions of your teeth. These will be sent to a dental lab where your oral appliance will be custom made. A few weeks later, you will return to have the appliance fit.  Most people will take a few weeks to get used to wearing something in their mouth while they sleep. After a few weeks you will return to check on your progress and to allow the dentist to make any changes needed. Once the appliance is comfortable and seems to be working (you will have less snoring and feel more rested) the dentist will ask you to return to your physician’s office for consideration of a follow up sleep study. It is critical that you see the dentist at least once a year for as long as you wear the oral appliance for any adjustments that need to be made. Most of the time oral appliances are covered by medical insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, especially if you have tried CPAP therapy and it was covered by your insurance. A sleep study must be done to measure the amount of apnea and pre-authorization is usually required. Many people have sleep apnea and are not aware of the treatment options. Oral appliance therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with CPAP therapy, depending on the severity of the sleep apnea. The bottom line is that your sleep apnea needs to be treated and the good news is you have options.

bstructive sleep apnea affects millions of people in the United States. The consequences of untreated sleep apnea can be serious, including increased risk of stroke and heart attack. The problem is pretty straight forward: the tongue and soft tissues in the throat collapse during sleep and block the airway.  The treatment of choice for most people with obstructive sleep apnea is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure(CPAP). CPAP therapy comes in several different types and has many different types of masks and interfaces. Significant advances have been made, however, even with all of these advances, some people are still unable to tolerate CPAP. And for whatever reason, some people give up on CPAP therapy, but their sleep apnea just doesn’t go away! Oral appliances, fit by a qualified dentist, are an alternative treatment for many patients who can’t use CPAP therapy. Oral appliances come in many different designs and are custom made. A trained dentist will work with the patient to choose the appliance most likely to be effective and comfortable for them.  Like CPAP therapy, oral appliances work by helping to keep the airway open during sleep. Unlike CPAP therapy, the oral appliances do not require machines or masks. This makes them an attractive option for patients who frequently travel. You will need a referral from your primary care physician to a dentist who is knowledgeable about sleep apnea and how to use oral appliances. The dentist will take an x-ray to make sure your teeth and the bone
