Another BEaUtifuL day!

Can y'all believe that it was over 70 degrees at my house today? We spent another day trying to catch up on some very neglected cleaning and organizing. We are actually almost finished! Another car will be able to fit in the garage soon. YIPEE!

I realized that I have never posted an up-date on my last Dr.'s appointment and I want to do that before any more time passes. I have been fighting with a low blood disorder off and on for (literally) years!!! And for the the first time in over 16 months, my blood work came back with higher numbers. My iron and hemoglobin have been feratin or reserves have been down to 1 or 2. After going to an oncologist for just a few visits, all my numbers were up when I was there last Thursday. The most significant was the increase in the reserves. They were up to 7. I still have a long way to go, (maybe as long as a year) but there is a light at the end of the tunnel! My Dr. told me that I have 3.5 MORE pints of blood than I had a month ago. Sounds absolutely crazy to me! No wonder I couldn't make it through the day without a nap! I can tell you that I am feeling better, not near as slugglish and my breathing has greatly improved. I have started a new exercise program and in 6 months time, I plan to be much healthier! (Wish I would have gone to this specialist a year ago! )

And I want to send out a very special Thank you to everyone that has kept me in their thoughts and prayers! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! It really does make a difference.

Until next time.

Shari how wonderful....nothing gets one down like their health...not only does the problem make you feel terrible but the stress over it adds to it.
Now you can look up and be less stress free. Good luck for continued success.

Shari, I am so glad to hear that your numbers are up. Health is just about everything. When we feel good, life is good.
Wasn't it awesome here in NC. Spring is on the way. Have a good week this week.
