Tonight I have a message from Hubby's Aunt Marilyn. Auntie Mare is a wonderful woman. We all love her very much and fight over who she will stay with when she visits from California. She is very funny and can make hubby laugh until he cries. And that is very funny to me!
I received an email from Auntie Mare today and I would like to share it with you. Today is Pulmonary Hypertension Blog Day. So, take it away, Auntie Mare!
"Today is PH Blog Day so here I go. I was diagnosed in 1997 with Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare, incurable disease that causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery between the heart and lungs and can lead to heart failure. I've been on several therapies including IV infusion 24/7 for six years; now I am on an experimental drug, some pills that I take twice a day. I have come a long way and I feel better now than before I got sick. Twenty years ago, the only treatment was a heart-lung transplant. Thank God for modern medicine and possibly a cure in the future using stem cells from the patients own bone marrow. Everybody enjoy the holidays. Peace Out."
Auntie Mare can now drive up to visit. Before the pills, she flew up and was attached to her IV making traveling difficult. Now she can even swim in her own swimming pool! Woohoo! We are very thankful for the advances in medicine. We still have our favorite Aunt around and that makes life wonderful.
Today's Etsy store is BeSem Natural Scents. This shop has hand made candles and soaps in yummy fragrances. I would like the Pink Grapefruit and Orange Blossom scents. There is a great deal of sample soaps, six bars for $9.00.
So, two silly items...Ollie has been sitting on my lap since I started this blog post. And his tummy has been talking away the whole time! Seriously! It sounds like he swallowed a kitten! While this is amusing in a gross kind of way, I am not looking forward to his pending explosion! Secondly, Roxy's mom is copying me!! Or I guess I am copying her. Two nights in a row we have cooked the same basic dinner. I am wearing my aluminum foil hat tonight to prevent brain waves entering my head and swaying my cooking. ;o)
Have a good evening! I will let you know about my dinner tomorrow!
