I just got back from the Doctor, and learned wonderful news.
The nerve disease in my head has NOT spread into the optical nerves, therefore, as things stand now, my vision is not in jeopardy.
I will get another "head shot" on Friday to see if they can relieve the pain from the damage. That means a big ole huge injection again, which hurts like the very devil.
But I can stand "head shots" as long as my vision is not endangered, right?
Thanks for all of you who have valiantly stood by me during this most stressful time. You guys are truly the wind beneath my wings!!
Now on to better way of living!! Woo Hoo!!!

DH brought home a new scale. It is one like they use in the Dr. offices.
I hate it.
Here I thought I was doing so well with the old one.
I knew I was losing, because I can get in to clothes I couldn't a month ago. My inches were down, too. The number on the scale kept dropping too.
Now about this new scale.
It has a balance wheel that you use to make sure it is perfectly balanced before any weight is added to it. Then you get on it.
Weighing in today on my old scale showed that I lost a pound this week. That is a happy thing.
Then I weighed in on the new scale. Cuss, Cuss, Cuss!
It showed me weighing two pounds more than the old one showed.
Who knows what my weight really was when I first started this thing?!
I sure don't. Not after getting on the new scale today!
I have to believe this new one, because I balanced it myself perfectly before I got on it. I even tried standing differently, leaning from one side to the other, to see if it changed. My old one does that for me.
NOPE! This behemoth stayed steady, no matter what I did to change it.
So now, Sportsfans, I weigh 2 pounds MORE, even though my clothing and the tape measure assure me that I am losing.
But I guess the only thing to do is keep on with Spark, and stay with this hated new, CORRECT scale.
Some days it just doesn't pay to get out of bed!!!

A short time ago, Arabian speeches at the U.N. urged the Arab
World to boycott everything that originates with the Jewish people. In
response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his
heart, offers to assist them in their boycott as follows:
"Any Arab who has Syphilis must not be cured by Salvarsan
discovered by a Jew, Dr. Ehrlich. He should not even try to find out
whether he has Syphilis, because the Wasserman Test is the discovery of
a Jew. If an Arab suspects that he has Gonorrhea, he must not seek
diagnosis, because he will be using the method of a Jew named Neissner.
An Arab who has heart disease must not use Digitalis, a discovery
by a Jew, Ludwig Traube. Should he suffer with a toothache, he must not
use Cocaine, a discovery of the Jews, Widal and Weil. If an Arab has
Diabetes, he must not use Insulin, the result of research by Minkowsky,
a Jew. If an Arab has a headache, he must shun Pyramidon and Antypyrin,
due to the Jews, Spiro and Ellege. Arabs with convulsions must put up
with them because it was a Jew, Oscar Leibreich, who proposed the use
of Chloral Hydrate. Arabs must do likewise with their psychic ailments
because Freud, father of psychoanalysis, was a Jew. Should an Arab
chilld get Diptheria, he must refrain from the "Schick" reaction which
was invented by the Jew, Bella Schick.
Arabs should be ready to die in great numbers and must not permit
treatment of ear and brain damage, work of Nobel Prize winner, Robert
Baram. They should continue to die or remain crippled by Infantile
Paralysis because the discoverer of the anti-polio vaccine is a Jew,
Arabs must refuse to use Streptomycin and continue to die of
Tuberculosis because a Jew, Zalman Waxman, invented the wonder drug
against this killing disease. Arab doctors must discard all discoveries
and improvements by dermatologist Judas Sehn Benedict, or the lung
specialist, Frawnkel, and of many other world renowned Jewish
scientists and medical experts.
In short, good and loyal Arabs properly and fittingly remain
afflicted with Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Heart Disease, Headaches, Typhus,
Diabetes, Mential Disorders, Polio, Convulsions and Tuberculosis and be
proud to obey the Islamic boycott."
Be careful of prejudice; it just may cost you your life!
