Last Wednesday we left and drove to Abita Springs and camped until Monday morning. The grandchildren came visit on Saturday and had a blast. All I did was read and rest and sew on sleeves. All in all it was a great week after the month we have had.
   Today, I went to the doctor to get the results of test he ran on my thyroid. I have been trying to control those levels for about 12 years now but it is beginning to get the best of me. It seems it is enlarged but three doctors can't tell from the scans if it is the para thyroid or the thyroid that is the problem. The para thyroid controls calcium levels in the body and mine are fine. So the doctors decided no biopsy but blood tests each month to check levels and another scan in 6 months unless something begins to bother me. 
   Thursday, I go to another doctor to get ready to run more test on another part of my anatomy. It seems that from the waist to the knees is wearing out and from the head to the chest is wearing out. The middle is just fine.Oh, well at least our accountant won't be fussing about our lack of deductions this year. Got to find the bright side to things!
  Saturday is the Krotz Springs Quilt Show and it promises to be a hooting good time. Those cajun ladies sure know how to throw a party. I will have a table to sell some of my daughter's crafts.
   I got excited when I saw the number that Judy L picked for the UFO challenge. It was #2 Big Mike's Jacket and I do mean BIG...size 4XL. Now I haven't finished/worked on UFO's in the last 4 months but this one will definitely be worked on. 
Well, lator Gators! May all the fabric you need find its way into your stash before you need it! Keep 2011 STRESS FREE!

  1. I am hoping to be able to get to the Krotz Springs show. Not sure at this point though with my schedule.

    I never have any fun!

    I have cold nodules on my slightly enlarged thyroid that we found when my brother announced he had thyroid cancer. That was fun. They check me for the last year and nothing is growing, so they figure I will make it. Lousy brother is doing fine as well. Although he never comes to see mom in the nursing home. Figire with a brush with death you might just care about your mom, but maybe not!
