Hey everybody!  My sister told me today that I needed to do something with my blog.  I guess she’s getting tired of looking at the same old post.

I hope y’all had a fabulous Christmas and are gearing up for the New Year.  I for one will be doing the same thing I’ve done for every New Year’s Eve . . .  staying put in my jammies on the couch.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your comments, emails and well wishes.  You have truly touched my heart!

I still haven’t made it into the studio, even though my goal was head down this week.  Today . . . yes today will be the day!

For some medical updates . . . I did find out that I do have a discrepancy with the arteries in my heart.  The middle artery is short and does not reach the base of the heart like it should so I have some new medications that I’ve been adjusting to.  One med is to slow my heart rate and the other is to enlarge my arteries;


for all you ladies out there who know what “Living Out Loud” is all about (Menopause the Musical) . . . power surges, night sweats, memory lapses . . . you get the drift . . . I finally have got me some of them there hormones . . . look out! TOWANDA is on the move!  (one of my favorite scenes from Fried Green Tomatoes)

I guess that’s all I have to say today . . .

But I’ll be back with a Graphic 45 project that I did for the Petaloo Blog Swap.  I think you’re going to love it . . . . I know I do!



Good morning!  I’m here today to put some rumors to rest and fill you in on what is happening on my end.

I’ve been a little under the weather lately Smiley from millan.net and decided to have myself checked out by a new doctor (that my sister and mother have recently started going to).

Of course, when you go to a new doctor the first steps are having a complete physical and work-up.   I’ve had a sleep test done, been checking my blood pressure twice a day for two weeks now, and I’ve had blood drawn a number of times.  I should have the results of all that work on Monday morning.  However . . .

I had a nuclear stress test Smiley from millan.netand of course, I failed.  I didn’t last too long until I started breathing very heavy and hard and my heart rate sored up.  THEN when I had the pictures made . . . Smiley from millan.net . . . they came back with some abnormalities.    Needless to say, at this point my doctor ordered a heart cath.

Let me just say at this point that my heart is just fine and is beating strong Smiley from millan.net

There are no blockages, blah blah blah . . . and a big WOO HOO!!!! Smiley from millan.net

I’ve been resting this week . . . no stairs (which means no studio), no driving (until yesterday when I HAD to go out), no walking, standing or sitting for extended periods . . . you get the picture . . .  I’ve been Smiley from millan.net

Where we go from here, I don’t know.  What I do know is that I will trust my new doctor and we will work together to make me feel like I should!

In the meantime, I’ll still have that occasional project that I can share and I will be working on projects for CHA.  They are all due soon and things I won’t be able to share until after CHA.
