My friend Nina continues to be in remission which makes me so happy and hope it continues for the rest of her life. She has been doing really well and is driving herself everywhere and shopping and doing most all of what she did before getting so ill. I am turning 70 this year and my children are giving me a huge birthday party, they have been interviewing caterers and DJ's etc. I am looking for a floor length dressy dress to wear since it is going to be a dressy affair. I have been so ill I have not been able to get excited about it, but now that I am on the mend I am sure I will.
I had gall bladder surgery December 21, 2012 and came out well. Easiest surgery I have ever had with tiny little incisions. Then 3 weeks later I had an allergic reaction to a new blood pressure pill and have been so sick since. This Tuesday I finally felt like I was going to live. I hate meds aand am going on a diet and get off my meds when I have lost enough to do without them. I have been stitching so much and have finished one project after another and finishing up one knitting project after another. I have been in a sewing frenzy and it feels good. I am the chairman of our arts & crafts group here at the park and two weeks ago we had 11 ladies attend and one wants to make exactly what I was working on. Such lovely ladies and each one working on their own projects and it's exciting to see them finished. Our weather has been cold and warm last week we were about 52 deg. and today we were at 80 deg. next Tuesday we are supposed to have rain and in the low 50s again, but it felt good to have the sun shining.
