A Quiet Monday

Today should be rather quiet. I will go to exercise class at 9:00, perhaps to get coffee afterward and then home. Both Bob and I still have some of our Chinese food left from yesterday so I will not have to cook. I am hoping my new right eye contacts will be in today. I am using my last one now. I have worn it for a few months and I am quite sure it is ready to be changed.

I went to the Living the Questions group last night at Wanzers. Only a few were there. Bob had begged off. He was very tired. Of course Keith and Joyce were there, Bobby and Karan, Jack and Marilyn, Barbara and me. That's eight of us....just right for a small group.

This afternoon at 4:30 I have my appointment with Dr. Hsu for a diagnosis about my arms. I really don't expect there will be one. I have lost faith in the tests and the doctors. I figure I will just wear it out. That's what I did back in the 80's with my debilitating arthritis. Either that or Bill's prayers worked. He had prayed for me when I could barely walk. Eventually, over a matter of weeks and a couple of months. I was able to stop taking my arthritis meds. And I was never troubled with it again. My theory is if you talk to your body about curing itself, some ailments can be cured by your mind....especially if you are determined to be rid of it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :)

I would like to go to Bartlesville today. It's been a long time since I've been least two or three weeks. And I am hoping Terry will get back to me today about the teacher for the primary class at church camp. I need to get that position filled ASAP. But I hate to try to fill it again myself for fear her friend will accept and I will have two. Trouble, trouble, trouble...

More now....

Well I saw Dr. Hsu at 4:30 and he said he had been just sure I have osteoporosis..especially since my entire family of females had it..except my mom. He admitted he was mystified and didn't have a clue as to what was causing my arm soreness. I appreciated his frankness and told him so. I told him that was the only problem I had and I felt blessed. I sleep on my left side on a small foam pillow and manage to get through the night only waking up once or twice. Lately, I have been able to get back to sleep after being woke up with the soreness....especially on my right arm. It's the worst.

Oh least he didn't try to fake it.

I always enjoy your blog, and check in every day, but seldom comment. Sometimes medication, even over the counter things, will cause what you describe in your arm/shoulder. I had a similar problem with an allergy pill. just a thought and when I researched it, I found that many others did,too.

The only medication I take, Suzanne, is Lisinopril 20mg and Levothyroxin 25mg which is a thyroid medication.

I have taken those for a couple of years and they have not caused any side effects.
