Hello Everybody. I have had a great summer traveling around N.E. and spending so much time with my family and friends and visiting fun places we enjoy.
My husband is having surgery in Sept. and I had new glasses made and I can actually see. The addition of V-prisim helps me to see one line instead of double vision. I didn't realize I had that only I couldn't see well.
Also now for sharing the not so good news. I am posting this so everyone will know that 7 months ago I had surgery hopefully to fix my rare blood issue. I have been doing excellent until Last Monday when the tests came back so low I had to start infusions the same day. I will continue 4 more weeks have test in 3 months The reason I am talking about this is last time I was told I should have shared this with all of you not just a few. What it is I have a rare condition that destroys the protein that holds iron in my blood. I am an unusually rare type of anemia. I have treatments in the same room as cancer patients because one of the bags has medicine used for cancer patients so I won't get sick and the other two bags can enter my body and I won't become terribly ill. And yes my hair does become very thin. I took out my favorite hat to decorate differently
A few girls said they had tears to hear this, I appreciate their care and emotion. Please don't cry for me as I have accepted now that there is no cure for me. Each day I wake up I think how can I make this the best day ever---I don't plan ahead as some days I am sick, but the good days I do everything to make it my best by my zany crazy jokes, laughing, talking to anyone who will listen, my husband pretends he is, very funny. I talk to the gdd'rs we just had a sleepover before the girls start school. My dd spent half the day with me along with Maegen. I talk to my sister Trish everyday and Cecile to. I have so much in my life that I don't have time to sit and wallow in self pity. I have it quite good compared to others. Smile when I post a joke, and I will be posting new layouts soon. All I ask is just be my friend, as friends are wonderful supporters just by stopping in. Hugs to all of you as to me you all are like family. Linda
