Welcome back, y'all and welcome to Susanna10.
I finished my donation quilt 10 minutes before it was time to deliver it this morning. I am the cashier in the jewelry room. Jewelry is donated and we clean and card it. It is priced low - mostly $1, some a little more and lots $.50 or less. $900 worth was sold in a few hours. My brain is tired from adding quickly. I did take a break to have a cup of tea and a snack with my friend. It's the women's bazaar, but the men work the dining room for us. I will post a picture of the quilt when I find a Kodak USB cord. I installed a new printer this week and it has no port for the SD card. My computer doesn't seem to have one either. I just have to remember where I put the cords - in the top of the computer desk, maybe??
Well, the fun has begin. The doctor I saw yesterday says I have fungal meningitis growing in my SI joints - which are very close to the spine. I have to have an MRI immediately. He says it diagnoses better than a spinal tap in these cases. Hey, I don't have an expendable $150 for my copay - I and I am claustrophobic. He said they have three very ill patients in their hospital who have had to had there joints scraped of mold and one died in the big medical center in Petosky this morning. Yikes. I'm not sure I agree with him, but when I was obviously dragging my feet, He said, "You don't understand - you will die without treatment." Another yikes! My house is too cluttered. I wouldn't do that to my children.

Congratulations, CHQ. 6 pounds is near the perfect 2 pounds a week.
Dr Oz had a good program this week - maybe Thursday - check his website - they have videos of most of the featured segments. One high carb day, one low carb day with a feast day on Sunday. The success rate seems to be high and I could do this easily. The feast day adds 1000 calories. Wow! He recommended having it out of the house so you won't have leftovers looking at you on Monday. Did he ever hear of a freezer? I am a better baker and sometimes a better cook than any local restaurant. The low/high carb days are calorie controlled - whatever your normal limited intake is. Mine 1380 calories - 10 calories for every pound of my desired weight which is 138. Those aren't Dr OZ numbers, just old ones that work for me.
I am losing weight and getting healthier.
