Alphabe-Thursday Letter V

<
Good morning class.

Welcome to round ten of Alphabe-Thursday! Today we will be studying the very vivacious letter:


A very dear lady sent me a card recently that reminded me "slow and steady wins the race".   I am impatient to feel better and to not continue the ripple effect of chronic illness but I am VERY grateful that things haven't gotten worse and I  have good doctors, good friends and Mr. Jenny to help me through.   I tried visiting a few links last week and I'll try again this week!   Thank you for all the kind words last week.   I appreciated them and am researching!   So many good suggestions.   Thank you!

Please!   Stay well!  I miss you!

Please link directly to your Alphabe-Thursday URL (if you don't know how to do this let me know!) and please continue to visit the five links before and after your link and leave a comment. Minimum of 10 links visited please. You can visit more if you like, of course, and please try very hard to visit the blogs that visit you for this meme.

If you have any difficulties with your link, please make sure to include the number of the link when you e-mail me. It is really difficult for me to find you easily otherwise.

If you have any questions about Alphabe-Thursday or problems doing your link just post it in a comment or send me an e-mail. I'll do my best to help you as quickly as I can.

The McLinkey will be live from 1:00 pm MST time Wednesday afternoon in an effort to assist our lovely "friends across the pond" and continue through 10:00 am MST time Friday morning!

The links will stay live after the final post deadline has passed so you can even wait and visit over the weekend or whenever you have more time.

Please link your vibrant letter now!

Alphabe-Thursday Letter U


Good morning class.

Welcome to round ten of Alphabe-Thursday! Today we will be studying the understated letter:



Unbelievable as it sounds, I'm waiting to see three different specialists in the next two weeks.  I'm still resisting the pain clinic but my willpower is waning...oh wait.   That's two 'w' words.   Sigh. 

At this point we seem to be fighting three different conditions.  I had a parathyroid tumor removed right before Thanksgiving and got relief from most of the deep bone pain for several weeks before it returned with a vengeance.  I am also unable to maintain Vitamin D with excessive amounts of vitamin B along with a myriad list of other blood issues.  Doing mega-dosing of D and had a long series of nuclear testing last week.  Seeing the endocrine specialist next week to determine if there are more parathyroid adenomas at this point.  The neuro pain has also accelerated greatly and that degeneration continues but I got accepted into a Rheumotoid research group AND a neuromuscular Group...both of whom I see Mid-April.  Thank heavens for insurance...and for the most patient, nurturing husband in the universe.   Still resisting the pain clinic, but my willpower is waning in that area.  Oh wait.   That was two "W" words.   Sigh.

Just thought I'd update you a little.   Visit a few extra links this week for me if you get a chance...I'd sure appreciate it!

And now...

The usual...

Dear Pain,

You.

Are.

Not.

The. 

Boss.

Of.

Me.

Yeah.   I know you're here.

You make your presence abundantly known...like a pebble in my shoe.
 
Muhammad Ali said, "It isn't the mountains ahead that wear you out...it's the pebble in your shoe."
 
I think he was probably right.  Pebbles are totally exhausting.
 
 
 
And that Ali guy is pretty smart for a basketball player. 
 
Or is that a football player?
 
Ummm.
 
Hockey?
 
Yeah.   I am always on top of the whole reference to sports thing.
 
NOT.
 
Blush! 
 
But chronic pain just wears you out.
 
And wears you down.
 
Maybe I need to spend less time trying to shake the damn pebble out of my shoe and more time remembering...
 
That perhaps the pebble in my shoe is heart shaped.

 
 
Or maybe a rare emerald.
 
Or a diamond.
 
I just need to remember that perhaps all this medical testing will help the pebble in my shoe.
 
Maybe it will make it gone.
 
Maybe it will just make it littler.
 
Or maybe I will need to invest in some special 'pebble in your shoe foot pad' to get by.
 
I just can't be afraid.
 
And I just have to keep reminding the pain...
 
YOU.
 
ARE.
 
NOT.
 
THE.
 
BOSS.
 
OF.
 
ME.
