In Sickness And Health

I hadn't mentioned before that my husband is having some medical issues as well. He was taken off work 3 weeks ago with shortness of breath and leg pain.
Well, they did find blockage in his leg we know so far. Today, we go for his heart test to tell us if any of his 5 stents all failing. He got them about 4 years ago. He may need stenting in his leg now, or more in his heart, or bypass. The testing today will tell us. Our Dr. only works 1/2 day today, and the test can take up to 5 hours, so we probably will have to wait through the weekend.
I hate the waiting....

The Hand That Feeds You

I have now been on Prednisone for two weeks for my hand. The MRI came back clear. (YAY!) The blood work looks ok too. I do have to go back to the Rheumatologist in one month as he said sometimes things just don't show up right away, but for now I am better, the joint pain is better, swelling and redness are better and I am able to do art again so I am happy!

Crowns, Wings, Pointy Hats?

I miss them all, in my beloved "Somerset." Ever since people went on this letter writing campaign it seems I see less and less of them. Also, what seems to be slowing fading is the vintage imagry art. This too, saddens me. I want my old Somerset back. I want the magic back. Is it that they have too many publications now, that their special little treasure is now not the little nostalgic heirloom that it once was? The one I'd drop everything I was doing the day it came for just to savor every page? The one and only magazine I have every issue from the start that I still can't bear to part with.
Anyway, with that thought in mind, I share with you this piece today!

Is Fall On The Way?

It is finally raining here! I can't remember the last time we had any. Seems like forever ago, now. I love the rain. The crisp air, the smell, the way it makes everything look, the change of colors that start to take hold as fall arrives. Can you tell I've had enough of summer?
