Lots of things going on.
Fun thing. Was in a car parade to celebrate dear friends 50th Anniversary. It was good to have somewhere to go and even more fun to see friends.
Good news. Went to pulmonologist for annual testing and passed with flying colors. Twenty years ago, I had such uncontrolled asthma I thought I would die soon. I was placed on one of the new biologic medications 2.5 years ago. My asthma is now fully controlled without as many meds and no steroids.
Even better news. While at the pulmonologists, the doctor told me about a new biologic medication that my DD qualifies to take. She has uncontrolled asthma and hearing this news was amazing. When I told her about it, we both danced for joy. Prayers answered. The pulmonologist is an amazing caregiver who always keeps his patients in mind when new treatments became available. He said he would write a letter to my DDs allergist highly recommending this new med. She may be just days away from having her asthma controlled.
Journey news. I’m reading The 4 Day Win by Martha Beck which was on The NY Times best list. It is an amazing book. The author got a PhD from Harvard studying weight issues in Americans. After graduation she collaborated with Jenny Craig on a dvd about the mental and emotional issues of weight loss. She then went on to write a column for Oprah’s O magazine. Instead of research she wanted to become a counselor for people like us. She has written several best selling books which she describes as just personal blogs of self discovery. She is amazed they are so popular. She writes in an honest and open manner just like Indygirl. I think this will be most helpful for me. I’ll continue to share as I read more.
