I am so thankful for the many people who prayed for me and especially little girl prayers. I am doing better today just tired. Paul's video for Laurie perked me up, I didn't know you liked Sound of Music so much.

I need some good news

I got the results of most my medical tests from yesterday and non of them are good. The blood counts are as bad as they were when I was in the hospital last year. Don't want to go there again. Also my dear son, Paul, got laid off today. I hate those days when life just keeps hitting you.

Stay out of the sun

I take one or 2 medications that say stay out of direct or indirect sun light so when I got discolored skin with scaly skin over it (last June) I of course asked the doctor. She said stay out of the sun! I told her I don't go in the sun except to get to the doctor's office, I'm pretty much a house mole these days. Anyway, we went through this every time I saw her. I finally got to go to a Dermatologist (referred by a different doctor) and she said about staying out of the sunlight. I explained I don't go in the sun anymore. She then says well, do you use those compact florsent light bulbs that are suppose to save $$. I say yes I have some of those. She said stay at least 8 feet away from the light. They give off the same bad UV rays that would effect you from being in the sun. So here I have been, for the last 10 months , using one for my reading light, one for my computer light and in the bathrooms. I might as well have gone out in the sun and enjoyed what is left of my garden. Don't know why the other doctor didn't warn me, maybe she didn't know. and the medication label doesn't have any warning and neither do the light bulbs. OK, so if you know someone who takes sun sensative medications you may want to let them know.

Out with the old

I got a new stove today. The old one we had for at least 15 years and it was used when we got it. The oven part worked sometimes and always did not work at the most inconvient time. I was surprised at the new features on stoves. It has burners for different settings like simmer. The one part I'm not sure I will like is the oven settings are on the top front of the stove and you have to reach over the burners to set the oven, but every new stove we looked at was set up this way. Tonight we will try it, not sure what to make yet!
