Updates on My Life...

Medical update: No Cancer! (I know I didn't say much, but was very worried.) All tests were great except the bone density. I'm now 5' 7" (formerly 5' 8-1/2") and officially have Osteoporosis. Yes, I'm taking calcium, vit. D, etc. Can't tolerate the hormone replacement, but increasing soy.

Life update: Nothing much going on. The weather is cooling again for the next 2 or 3 days. Love it! PJ is on a hiking trip this weekend with two friends. Lucky 13's been spending all of his time completing his three online courses. MJ keeping busy at work, and he's been attending lots of concerts and activities.

Creativity update: Well... I've begun several art/craft projects. Completed none. I have a major writing block. I feel like watching old movies or laying in the grass watching the clouds go by.
I did give up Diet Coke about a month ago... Time to pour myself a tall glass of iced tea, with the caffeine.

Quote for today:

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."
~ William Shakespeare

Glad you are OK! Didn't know that you were having a scare. I have osteoporosis too, but take the medicine and calcium.

They don't have me on meds yet. Can't remember what my mom took, but it reversed some of her bone loss. The pain I am having is most likely related to the MS.

I didn't say anything bout the "C" word... guess it was just too hard to think about. Lost both mom and dad to it, and many friends. Plus, so many are praying for me anyway, I figured I was probably covered! Lol!

Nita Jo- love your blog! Glad your health scare doesn't involve cancer. It's a scary word. Get some exercise and take some calcium. Or eat ice cream... Thanks for stopping by my blog and Julie's too, She's a gem, and I felt so many people were missing out on her. hugs- Lee

I know how it feels to have a cancer scare...Everything stands still. It is live changing...and yes, I want that tooth back...:)
