Three Crazy Days
Monday, March 05, 2018      5 comments

So...last week was notable for several bad days in a row. I sometimes think I complain too much, and I know that my bad days are first world bad days, and I should probably stop whining and put on my big girl pants. However! Last week was def... Read more
Latest MRI
Friday, February 16, 2018      2 comments

I'm breaking my own self-imposed rule to never blog about Danny's cancer for a couple of reasons. Which I won't go into right now, but they exist. Danny had a routine MRI yesterday. Today his oncologist called me to give me the news - there... Read more
Don't have to go to PA
Saturday, January 27, 2018      5 comments

It looks like my sister doesn't need me to come to Pennsylvania after all. She promised she would let me know immediately if she does. It is a very tough situation for me, since our mother has Alzheimer's and I am so far away. Most of the res... Read more
Tough Situation
Monday, January 22, 2018      3 comments

I may need to go to PA for a week to take care of my mother, whose caregiver has had a family emergency. My poor sister is thinking she will have to handle it on her own. I want to go and help, but if I do, it means Henry will have to take on ... Read more
Of a broken rib and other disasters

So yesterday was one of those days. It started out with a clogged and overflowing kitchen sink. Overflowing, I might add, with water laced with Drano, Drano which did NOT work as advertised. And when it flowed all over my kitchen counter and ... Read more
No sense of taste :-(

I haven't blogged in a long time, not because I haven't wanted to, but because I have just been totally swamped. The end of the year always gets to me like that. Anyway, this update isn't a very positive one for me. By way of background, ... Read more
No one can top me at losing glasses and keys!
Tuesday, July 18, 2017      6 comments

Sunday night we went to church, at which I had my prescription reading glasses. I even remember putting the case with the glasses in my purse as I was leaving the pew. I drove home in my car. I set my purse in the living room, stopped briefly... Read more
Thirty pounds down and an NSV
Saturday, July 15, 2017      9 comments

I have lost another five pounds, and am now thirty pounds below my highest weight. I am pleased to see the number on the scale, but I also know that some of the lost weight may be water, and that weight always fluctuates. So tomorrow that numb... Read more
Twenty-five pounds down
Saturday, June 24, 2017      5 comments

My incredibly slow weight loss has taken a more speedy turn of late. It took me eight years to lose twenty pounds (better than gaining twenty pounds, right?). Now in less than a year, I have already lost another five. I am happy abou... Read more
Fleas - grrrrrrrrrrrr...
Sunday, June 18, 2017      2 comments

We spent last week at Canyon Lake, a beautiful small town between San Antonio and Austin. In the summer there are lots of tourists enjoying the lake with all that it offers (boating, tubing, fishing, etc.), so it's very crowded. We rent a ... Read more

Good MRI Report and a Video
Sunday, April 30, 2017      8 comments

Danny had his regular every-three-month MRI last Tuesday evening. It was the first time in a long time he didn't go in already accessed, and I was worried. The last time the MRI tech tried to put an IV in his arm, he ended up with huge ... Read more
Port removal
Tuesday, April 25, 2017      5 comments

Just a quick post to say that the surgery to remove Danny's port last Thursday went very well. The whole surgery took 11 minutes, not counting the administering of and recovering from the anesthetic, which added an hour and a half. When Danny ... Read more
Reflections on Obesity, Love, and Rejection
Friday, April 14, 2017      6 comments

I have been so busy lately (what else is new?) that I haven't had much time for SP beyond checking in. Easter weekend gives me a bit of a break, and I wanted to put down some thoughts. Last weekend I went to a big family reunion in Wichita,... Read more
