Well, the week-end was a busy one for me. I started noticing a tooth ache in the tooth that I had already set up an appointment to have extracted in 2 weeks. I guess it couldn't wait! So I toughed it out over the week-end and then called to ... Read more

Well, tomorrow is the electrophysiology Study and probably an ablation for my son. He has tachycardia which is an arrhythmia of the heart. We had hoped to control it by medicines, but his episodes are more like a seizure and very hard on him. ... Read more

A couple of weeks ago, there were rumors of layoffs at my company. It is all hush hush and unless you happen to know someone who is affected, you might not even know it is going on. It seems to me that layoffs are a "never ending" story that h... Read more

Well, tomorrow is the day that my husband has his angioplasty procedure at the hospital. If they do a stent (and I expect them to do it), then they will keep him overnight at the hospital. He is VERY nervous as I'm sure I would be as well. H... Read more

Well, I've been on my program - both with food and exercise now but seem to have hit a wall. I've been reading about the 5K Your Way - Walk/Jog program and thought I'd give it a try. I walk almost 30 minutes per day at around 3 mph on my... Read more

Well, I can't believe it but I'm finally out of the 220's. This 10 pounds certainly came off slower than the last 10 pounds, but I'm ok with that. It also came with a lot more doubt on my part since I haven't been this low in many ,many years ... Read more
