I rarely ever go to the theater to watch a movie, but my BFF asked me a few weeks ago to go Fantastic Beasts with her, so that is what we did this afternoon. It was a fun movie. I would definitely go see the next one. Also saw the preview for... Read more

I had PT this morning, then had an errand to run for mom, but once I got home around 11:30am, I closed my apartment door and shut out the world. I DID get a call from my PCP's office to say they had set up an appointment with UB Neurosurgery fo... Read more

Went to the chiropractor first thing this morning. We reviewed the results of my MRI and he made a suggestion. Saw the foot doctor. Not much he can do. I will see him as needed to take care of the tootsies. Also saw my Primary Care do... Read more

I go to my parents' house most mornings to walk with my dad and Cooper, and have coffee and conversation to start my day. Today I also left Cooper with them after our morning routine so I could go to the grocery store. When I came back to my p... Read more

A friends' blog today (Maringal) reminded me how far I have come, and the advantages of staying the course on this journey of self discovery that started as a desire to lose a few pounds. She has a family member who is going through some troubl... Read more
Second Thanksgiving

My family gathered tonight to celebrate the holiday. We had a LOT of food. I did pretty good on portion sizes, but there were so many options to choose from that I had to take tiny portions of each item in order to get a taste of each. The br... Read more

I spent the day puttering around my apartment. Got the laundry done, and the carpet vacuumed. Finished a book I was reading. My friend, Jen, picked me up at 3pm to go to her house for dinner with her family, since my family is doing dinner to... Read more
Another specialist
Wednesday, November 23, 2016      16 comments

I saw another specialist today... who referred me to another specialist, because my case is actually too complicated for her to treat. But it wasn't a waste of time. The doctor I saw today actually took the time to explain all the test results... Read more

Today was the first day of week 2 of the construction project in my apartment building. The building manager is having a cow, because it is taking so long, and she is taking it out on her tenants. Ugh. Good thing I am gone before she gets her... Read more
A quiet day...

Cooper and I really appreciated a quiet day at home... alone together. I needed today to recharge. Cooper was not interested in long walks today, and I didn't feel like braving the cold, so I didn't make my walking step goal today. I did make... Read more

PT first thing this morning, then to the lab for blood work. Afterwards I stopped and got more dog treats for Cooper to keep at mom and dad's. Since we are spending so much time there, we are going through the supply of treats I had left there... Read more
