Greeeeaaat....now I get a call-back about yesterday's mammogram. They need an ultrasound. Had the new 3D mammo - has anyone else had that? I'm not scared, just a little...disconcerted. Is there something there that's been missed in prior 2D mammos? And/or should I be glad I got this 3D because whatever's there might've been missed?

Who knows ~ I'm rambling.

Hi everybody!

Just checking in. Last check up my cholesterol had gone up quite a bit because I stopped the simvistatin due to leg cramps and pain. My PCP was upset because I refuse to take them again, and he knows my local neuro advised me to stop them. So he is really ticked off at the neuro.

So I've been on a low cholesterol diet for about 6 weeks or so, I'm hoping that will help me keep it under control and keep the PCP happy.

I'm doing fairly well other than that (knock on wood) and my mammogram is due. But with my surgery ordeal last fall and winter I hesitate to get the annual mammo but I know I need to do it soon.

I'm still doing ok at work, not pending getting fired for the moment.

Happy Halloween to you all. Love to you all.

Heart 14 Days and Counting!!!

14 days till I'm a Grandma!! 11/14 is the date for the c-section for the twins. The OB/GYN told them that they estimate both babies to be 6# or more!

Poor DIL can barely move and when she does she can hardly breathe!

We're all excited but I think she is the most excited. They have the babies nurseries all prepared. The downstairs nursery is larger than the upstairs one. Someone gave them swings and little carriers that bounce and wiggle back and forth and all of that is in the downstairs nursery.

She is planning on breastfeeding but has a realistic outlook and she knows that she might have to supplement those feedings with bottles. I hope it works out for her. It was hard for me to nurse one....and she'll have two!

Congratulations on the babies. When I had my oldest my room mate had twins, BIG twins, and she was nursing them. It seemed like she had babies on her breast the entire time we were in. She might change her mind real quick.

My daughter is bring her new beau over to meet us no Sunday. We usually go out to eat with her on Sunday but she said she didn't want to have an issue of Charlie making a scene in public so we will meet at our house.

Yes, today was Halloween. And I ate, and ate, and ate. But I did record it all in my food diary. I ordered a cranberry apple chicken salad at Dennys ronight but only ate half the cranberries, none of the glazed pecans and left the garlic bread which i all in the calorie count on their website. So I knew I could take some calories off of the entry in my diary. So I was within my calorie limits but they just weren't good calories at all. Michelle's room mate is a little tiny Asian man, loves candy and he never puts a pound on when eating bad things

It is cold and windy here today. North GA mountains got some snow last night!! The weather forecasters are going crazy this morning!!

I just went shopping on the BabiesRUs website and got the girls a Christmas present!! I know they'll be too little to remember anything about this Christmas but the parents and grandparents will surely enjoy it!!

I've already gotten several presents for my kids and a few friends. I have to buy early and when I have the money available. It helps because I'm not scrambling at the last minute trying to find gifts. I think everyone here will be buying for the girls this year.

Since I do all my shopping online I've been going through ebates.com to order anything I purchase. I get a rebate check every three months from them just for using their website to get to the stores websites. I checked this morning and I have $136 pending for my next cash back!! That's the most I've ever earned. Usually it's $40 or $50 dollars. I buy all my pet food and supplies using Wag.com and can go through ebates. It's really a nice tool to earn a little extra money now and then.

Do you at times think it is actually a negative that we have so much medical information available to us today? I read my radiologist report and then of course did some research on the findings, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer. And based on what I have read, the chance that my nodules are malignant has increased signigificantly. I am feeling sort of nostalgic for the good ole days when doctors were God and you trusted them. Oh well.

I am preparing to tell my mother what is going on tomorrow. Since she is pretty much deaf and her cochlear implant is not working nearly as well, I wrote down what I wanted to say..

Aw-stop reading, Barb...we DO know too much nowadays...keep us informed
I'm sure your mom will be a great source of support for you...

Kitty, I have heard many moms of twins successfully nurse. Whatever time she can do it is beneficial to the babies.

Wow, that wind storm was awful yesterday!! The poor kiddies were running to and fro gathering candy the way the squirrels have been gathering food for winter-fast and furious.

We pretty much finished up the outside fall cleanup. Just have to turn off the pond pump and put the heater in. All the pods on our honey locust blew off yesterday, just in time for the city to come pick up all of the leaves and pods next week.

We are finally ready to sign a contract for the reconstruction...we are ordering the tub and shower stalls today for both bathrooms and only need to choose lighting. Then we need to order the tile we have chosen for each bathroom and order the carpeting that needs to be replaced. Can't wait for all of this to be back to normal. I hate living with all of these holes in the walls and ceilings.

Well, stay warm, dry and safe today...

Barb, I have a thyroid nodule. I've had it since it was found on a new employment physical in 1976 and confirmed by ultrasound. It was too small to biopsy w any confidence.

I was given the choice of having it out and taking Synthroid the rest of my life or not having it out and taking Synthroid the rest of my live to suppress it. I choose to suppress it w/o surgery. It's been 38 years.

Best to you,
ANN
