Bad Way to Spend my Birthday

My last post was Thursday when I went to the doctor. He gave me a pain shot. Friday I was back in his office for another one. It kinda knocked the edge off, but I still suffered all weekend. This morning, I called and scheduled my tests. The woman who scheduled them was so nice. She said, "You don't want to schedule these tomorrow. That's your birthday." I assured her I wanted to get them over with, so tomorrow would be fine. I'm having a CT Scan, X-Rays, and a bone scan. That should keep me busy!

My blood tests did come back normal, so praise God for that! Keep praying.

On a more cheerful note, my church threw me a surprise birthday party after church yesterday. What fun! I so appreciated them remembering me like that. I'm very blessed.

Since I don't want this blog to be simply about my ailments, I found a fun link to share today. Anyone ever heard of Spark People? They offer a free diet plan, recipes, calorie counter, and a whole lotta stuff. I don't like to put a link in my recommendations unless I've checked it out first. If you'd like to give a looksee, click here: SparkPeople. Let me know what you think.

Oh, and one of the sweet women from church brought me a homemade cake that looks almost just like that clipart. I'm saving it to share with my family tomorrow night. But I'll just have a little - I promise!


  1. A belated happy birthday to you! Sorry you are having problems and having to go through all the tests. How nice to have a special treat like the cake but quite a challenge to not eat too much!

  2. It was quite a day. I had tests all morning and then ended up at the funeral home for visitation for a friend of ours who died.

    But dinner was lovely, and the cake delicious. Everyone raved, but I kept to my promise to have only a small piece - and felt better for it. I'm learning.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  3. Was your birthday the 31st? Same as my hubby's! Sorry you had to spend it getting tests and going to the funeral home!

    But, happy belated birthday, anyway.



  4. Yes, it was the 31st, same as your hubby's. Hope he had a nice one.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes!
