Things are looking up...
Things are looking up for me. Or should I say things have settled down. In fact, nothing has changed so I can say no news is good news. I hate that the medical profession will test you to death but when they can't fix the problem, they just d... Read more
Sigh of relief
It's been a whirlwind of activity, so much stuff last week and then Monday was the PET scan and other tests and yesterday was the much dreaded dentist. Today I can breathe a sigh of relief. Part one of the tests came back good, no change and a... Read more
My beautiful, adorable daughter came to see me today bearing a gift. She stopped at the grocery store and bought a cake upon which she had them write a message that she wanted me to know but couldn't say. I looked at the cake and after we both... Read more
And so on....
I got up my courage and made that phone call to the cardiologist. I went and he was super nice. While I was waiting for him, I had a very heavy sweating spell. The sweat was dripping down my face, my clothes were so wet, I could wring them ou... Read more

The past is past
All my life, I've been on one diet or another. I was a chubby baby and Mom tried to slim me down but my Nonie babysat me and she believed in feeding everyone and so I ate. Through out school, I was always the biggest in the class. At first it... Read more

There are good days and then there are days like today. I went to use my Wii this morning and just couldn't get it to work. I tried everything I could think of until finally my husband suggested I check the wires in the back. I knew they were... Read more
