Jim and I got a good report at our doctor yesterday and don't have to go back for 3 months. I had not gained or lost any weight, my blood pressure was as low as it has ever been, and my lungs are clear. Same for Jim and the only difference is that they drew blood on me as it had been a while since it was done. My doctor then sends me a copy of the report, as he knows this old 'nurse' likes to read it for herself and knows what it all means!
I am thankful to be alive and 'kickin' as they say. We pick up Jesse from school today and look forward to seeing him. He was at his Mother's house for the weekend. I look out the window at times, expecting to see him playing in the yard, and realize he isn't next door at all.
I visited with a lady at the doctor's office, while waiting on Jim to be through, and we found out we had many things in common. She taught history at the high school in my community, she loves to knit and crochet, and she is on Facebook, and suggested we become friends there.
In our conversation, she said her church has a ministry to the homeless, and she crocheted sleeping mats, made out of plastic bags, such as Walmart or grocery bags. This is the link she shared and thought I would share with you too.
Check it out....if you are like me, you may already have enough of the bags to make a mat! I thought it was a good idea and thankful there are good, caring people out there.
