Dear Diary Wednesday....

I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel!!! I know that I promised that this would be the year that I would get healthy, I am sticking by that....and it is almost to the end! I met with my specialist and I am totally healthy. Yes, my triglycerides are high, however, evertyhing else is obnoxiously LOW and because the triglycerides are not high in conjunction with something else being high....I'm Fine!! And then I had my bone density scan, and the fear was I had osteopina (have known about this for a couple of years) the results last night and I am FINE. In fact, he wants me to cut back on my calcium intake. All I have left is my mammogram on the 16th and I am good to go for three months! YAY!!!! And can I just tell you how much I love my internist. If anyone needs a really good internist, let me know because Dr. Kuo is da' BEST!!!!

This has been a long week. I have had something to do with my folks every single night, including tonight. The only night that I am not booked is Thursday....THANK GAWD! The fact that I am getting together with my group of wacky, outspoken, lovable friends on Saturday is the only thing that is keeping me going this week.....AARRGHHH!!! Oh, and I think my folks made plans for me on Sunday too, not sure, but I will find out today.

Got some really great news last favorite cousin who has been fighting cancer looks like he might have finally WON! YAY!! He got to go to Washington over the weekend and did not end up at the ER once for dehydration. He got back in town on Monday, went straight to his ER where he is suppose to go every single day and his doctor met him there (this is a daily thing for my cousin and his cancer doctor) and the doctor ran tests and not only did they not have to rehydrate him BUT he will only need to go back once a month and in one month, when all the chemo and radiation is out of his system, they will see if there is any cancer left! I AM SOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!!!

Dear Diary Monday....

The weekend was much needed relaxation and FUN!

Friday didn't work out as Dylan and I had planned. I was going to leave work a bit early, but that didn't happen and if I discuss it the only thing that will happen is that I will get all shades of pissed off. So, I went home and got my Mom and we headed to the vet to pick up Tigger, her insane but loveable cat, who had a dental that day. We finally got him home, got him comfortable and settled down, and I headed 7:00 pm! Dylan and I grabbed dinner and then just relaxed until bed time.

Saturday we got up and went to see "The Messengers" and then to Furburbia where we walked the biggest dog on the planet....BEAR the Great Pryenesse dog. I was so in love with him by the time we were ready to go that he almost came home with us....up until the point he 1) slobbered on me and made Dylan physically sick and 2) found out that he had never been house trained! After that, we went home and fed the zoo, and headed over to his Mom's house for a brief visit, picked up dinner, and settled in to watch the pay-per-view UFC....which we didn't get to finish because we were both so tired that we went to bed!

Sunday I spent the day at my folks house cleaning out that garage and then relaxed for the rest of the day until the Superbowl came on. I was very disappointed in the commercials but watching Prince (GOD) perform was wonderful!! I also went to bed reasonably early last night with a headache.

All in all, a great weekend. This coming weekend Dylan and I are planning on starting our Spring Cleaning bonanza and getting together with everyone for dinner.....REALLY looking forward to that!!!
