Bee’s Knees, Continued

  My left knee is still bothering me, even after doing Physical Therapy since January. <sigh> It seems to get better, then something happens and it’s back to pain again.  When we were on a trip to New York a month ago, we walked a lot and climbed so many stairs, I had to buy […]

Bee’s Knees

  No, I don’t think bees have knees but I do – and one of them was hurting a lot.  Mine started, I think, the day after DH’s heart attack – January 28, 2013. Fast forward to January 2016. I fell in the bathroom in the middle of the night and hit my left knee on […]

Giving Thanks…

From the Giving Thanks series at http://www.maryo.co/tag/giving-thanks/ Today I am hugely thankful that the last major issue we had here was in 2013 when Tom had his heart attack.  That event caused me to start this new blog to post about our experiences.       January 27, 2013 was our 40th anniversary.  DH called me […]

Adventures with Human Growth Hormone

From 1999 to today,  not-so-quick recap from my bio: 1999 ~ Many people are now finding that they need HgH after pituitary surgery, so an Insulin Tolerance Test was performed. My endocrinologist painted a very […]

Giving Thanks, Day 3

Adapted from http://www.maryo.co/giving-thanks-day-3/ Today I am hugely thankful that the last major issue we had here was in 2013 when Tom had his heart attack.  That event caused me to start a whole new blog to post about our experiences.

Icy Days and Mondays…*

* With apologies to Karen Carpenter! I know I’m not supposed to “relive” events.  I have done that too often with my Cushing’s and cancer adventures and I’m told that reliving causes nearly as much stress as the original event. So, I plan to write down my memories here and try to let them go… […]
