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...

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

I haven't had time for blogging lately. Haven't had time for much, really. Internet at home is down and library time is at a premium. However, I will be posting about Danny's recent doctor's visit when I can. Overall, it went well. I me... 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
Happy Birthday to Danny
Thursday, February 16, 2017      6 comments

This is a very special birthday for Danny; it is the year when his age and the day of the month of his birthday are the same. And it is special for other reasons, too; at one point I never thought we would see this birthday. I am so very, very... Read more
For others it is a simple flat tire, but not me!
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      2 comments

So my car had a flat tire yesterday evening, right when it was too late for any of the relevant repair places to be open. One of my neighbours kindly offered to put some air in it, although Henry and I both really thought it would be a waste of... Read more
The Flu
Tuesday, February 14, 2017      2 comments

Well, I was about as wrong as I could have been in my last blog entry. What I had was not an allergy, although I did have an allergic cough last year. What this was was the flu, pure and simple. The coughing started last Tuesday evening... Read more
The Return of the Cough
Wednesday, February 08, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday afternoon I was at the library when I started in coughing. Not the best place for it, to be sure, but it wasn't too bad then. However, it got progressively worse during the evening, and I had a very disturbed night because my coughin... Read more
Painful Day
Sunday, February 05, 2017      4 comments

Yesterday was a really terrible day for me physically. I wasn't really feeling that bad in the morning, but after dropping Danny off at a service project, Henry and I went to a big Asian festival. That was my downfall. We weren't expectin... Read more
