Oh my! Are you on this for controlling cholesterol? Ick...I'm sorry. I have heard of some foods that can help lower cholesterol but I've forgotten what they were. Can you look that up?

It's late late late...my biopsy showed no cancer, but a little bit of my cervix has to be removed today because of a bunch of abnormal tissue and cells. It's just a simple office procedure and I'll be just fine. I'll have to have a Pap smear every 3 months for the next year to make sure everything's ok, and that's such good news!

It sure has been a long 2 weeks, and we can finally sleep! We got the good news on Monday and I tell you, we zonked out at night. We stayed up too late tonight watching funny movies like Wild Hogs, Down Periscope and Blazing Saddles LOL!

Around noon today the 18th, it will all be over! YAY!!
