Concerned for my friend

Friday, July 24, 2009

A good friend found a lump in her breast a couple of days ago. She went to the doctor and was scheduled for a mammogram this morning. They determined that it's not a cyst, and she'll have some type of procedure, probably next week after she confers with her doctor. Her mother died of breast cancer at a fairly young age, and her husband's wife also died of breast cancer, so they are both very concerned. Their 20th wedding anniversary is coming up on next Wednesday. Hopefully it will prove to be beneign. Otherwise, hopefully she caught it early enough (it is small), and it will not have spread. At least she does have good health insurance.

    I'm so sorry. I pray that your friend's lump is benign. It must be extra scary for that family considering the medical history.

Still, it's wonderful that she caught it early. Hopefully, a simple lumpectomy will be all she'll need. Keep us posted; will be praying.

Choice of affordable health care for ALL Americans

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Hoping everyone will contact their Representatives and Senators in support of President Obama's Health Care Reform, which will allow people to choose their health care providers and insurance. In the long run it will save us money.


I got to go swimming in my friends' pool

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Cecily phoned and said her pool water was cleared of the algae problem that had been plaguing it for a week or two. I swam laps for about 45 minutes. Have lost about 5 pounds since we started swimming, but did not start losing until I lowered my caloric intake in addition to increasing the exercise. Maybe I built some muscle.


Thinking of Spark Friend Patty

Patty's in surgery today to replace a leaky heart valve. We're holding her in our thoughts and hoping all is going very well!


Trying to get some work done

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Trying to get focused on producing the newsletter for my neighborhood. Once it's done, I can invoice them for this issue, and I need the income. Then I also need to buckle down and find and apply for jobs. There ARE some out there - not many here in Michigan - but there are some. Then I need to swim at my friend's pool or go for a bike ride today using one of the routes I've saved on my SparkPeople page. That will be my reward when this newsletter is done!

  My 18 year old needs a part time job but there just aren't that many out there these days. He got a lecture off my sister about it yesterday, poor kid!
