Vitamin D ~ Do we get enough?
For us here in Minnesota, the only opportunity we have to get Vet D from sunshine is between Memorial Day and Labor Day! Channel 4 did a 'Good Question' on this issue this week. Wearing a sun block during the summer months blocks 95% of sun UV exposure ! So for us a Vit D supplement is a MUST!
We have one this week, giving us temps in the mid 30F*s! It ends tomorrow and we go back in the freezer.
Not so far, actually I went up to 166 which I was ashamed to post! I'm back to 164.2 and starting week 2 of the January Jump-start Challenge!
Trip to ER?
Yes - last Saturday, ambulance ride included! About an hour after I woke up I started to get a burning rash from head to toe. Scared? You bet! Since I live alone, I was afraid to wait it out and called 911. I was beet red all over and my skin was burning! After blood tests, multiple doc exams, and having an IV starter kit installed (no IV, just the connector in my arm) I was released, minus the IV starter kit, with a diagnosis of UK allergic reaction or possibly a reaction to niacin (which I have been taking for the last 3 months), why a reaction now?
Photo of my new black cat?
Not yet, I'm going to name her Phantom! I only catch brief glances of her eating or using the litter box!
Does your grocery have a $1 section?
Unfortunately yes, including a section of dark chocolate bars and cookies! I haven't gone there in a week, until I get stronger willpower.
Having no more News, bad or good, I'll sign off.
