How Did I Get Here, And Where Is The Next Turn?

Greetings and salutations to all who deem this worthy of your time...

And Now a Word From Our Sponsor...

I have trouble coming up with titles sometimes. I know that one is a bit corny, cliched and tired, but to be honest, I haven't a clue what to call this entry. Up dates, I guess, ramblings of a slightly over the hill, deranged mind, maybe just WTH s. Anyway...

First, thanks Punk. I am honored to call you my dear friend, even if you are sometimes a twerp. You put up with me, cheer me on, and bring me back to reality when I get on my soap box. Thanks for that, and thanks for wandering back into my life, and letting me wander into yours. I couldn't ask for a better brother from another mother.

Now, down to bi'ness...

I went to the doctor, right? They did the whole blood work thing, and all the gooy junk we women despise. I heard back from some of it today. So far, I am healthy! My iron is a bit low, however. That would explain why I get so tired. The doc says get some iron pills, finish the anti b s, and so far, so good. I am actually healthier than I have been in probably 10 years or more. Losing the weight has been a real struggle, and I am far from finished with it, but it has really kick started me into this new phase of my life. Imagine what I will be like in a few weeks when my iron level rises! I told the Punk today, I already feel sorry for anyone who has to deal with me at full speed. Screw coffee... I'll be hyped up on just the air I breathe. The low iron may also explain why I am not quite progressing as I had hoped on my walks. Yes, I am up to about 2 miles, but it is a fight for every step, every block, every mile. I can not wait to see what happens next!

Another update. A more somber one, I am afraid. My BFF's mom, poor darling lady. She is struggling for every breath, and her vitals continue to drop. I hate, absolutely loathe the idea of her suffering so much, but God! I don't want her to go. I wish I had a magic wand to wave and get rid of all cancer.

A dear friend from church has just been diagnosed with cancer as well. Why in the world so many have to deal with their bodies attacking them in such a way is beyond me. I have been angry, and so sad all day.

A part of me was also terribly frightened. One should never google with out proper guidance. The symptoms I was having are also signs of cancer, and I was scared spit less, to put it mildly. To get my little bit of good news in the midst of all the bad is a bit on the bittersweet side. Pray for my friends. And while you are at it, thank The Big Kahuna for every blessing in your life. Heaven knows, I am.
