I have been dealing with a painful swallowing problem and must undergo an Endoscopy on June 18 here in Little Rock at 11:30 AM. As you can imagine, I am always very concerned for my vocal chords and, although I have done this test before without problems, somehow I feel something may be different this time. My father died at 62 of Esophageal cancer and my specialist assures me that it is a rare condition which affects only men. Still, having just turned 60 in January I can’t help thinking about what happened to my father and what might be going on with me.
So, if you will, send out some good vibes for me next Tuesday, ok ? I’m trying not to worry but I’m failing miserably at it. Knowing I have peeps who care and are sending good thoughts will help me relax.
I’ll check back in here when I’ve recovered from the test to let you all know what my docs figured out.
Maybe all those crayons I ate when I was a kid are coming back to haunt me.
Love to you all, Meg
Although temps are a rainy 50F , I know ot will be hot as heck here in Arkansas very soon. Now is the time when MSrs can still be outside in the cool weather, enjoying cloudy days and brisk breezes.
Ok, I know we’re all getting ready for Turkey Day but Friday looks like a winner this year with the Hoops and Yoyo special on CBS @ 8pm Central. Come on, Peeps, you know Hoops and Yoyo are zippy fun. And, as it turns out, I’m going to need something funny to watch while I’m dealing with our Razorback football team sinking in the mire this year.
So, happy viewing one and all…Charlie Brown, Hoops and Yoyo and some leftovers will make Thanksgiving Friday a blast.
Now, it’s back to making my shopping list. I’m going to make a nice, rustic chicken-veg soup this week and I’ll be needing zucchini to go with my fresh Rosemary.
My favorite recipe book for this is ” The Soup Bible”, a Barnes & Noble book that is a big, colorful compendium of soup recipes from around the world.
Onward and upward, Meg
Greetings, One and All !
I wanted to wish you all a happy holiday now before things get crazy. My health keeps me from cooking a big meal so we let the local Hilton do the work….they make a mean Mimosa.
Don’t wear yourselves out and remeber you really can say ” no” when you just have too many things to do.
Love to you all, Meg
My favourite time of year from September on. Although I have to do without the wonderful tree colours of the north there is still beauty to be found here in Arkansas around the cypress trees and migrating birds. I was ill 3 weeks leading into Hallowe’en from a spider bite…sheesh ! I love spiders and I didn’t even feel whatever got me but man-o-man did I feel poisoned. I got through it okay but did not get out to do anything Halloweeny. I swear, i would really like to be a guest at a con for Hallowe’en 2013, it’ll be my 60th year and I really want to celebrate (starting on my day, January 28th).
Making it to 60 has been no mean feat, I can tell you. And, if you like my music and song writing, I came really close to not doing music at all when I was young. I had been in ballet since a very early age and I won a scholarship to the New York Institute of Ballet to study under Rudolf Nureyev. BUT, at the age of 11, I had one summer to grow at least 1/2 inch…that’s all that stood between me and my ballet dream.
Needless to say, come September, all the stretching I did made me sore but no taller so I was suddenly out of ballet. I found a guitar and taught myself to play and that’s how things went from then on.
You just never know where the winds will take you, eh ?
Enjoy the Autumn breezes my friends,
I can’t fill any CD orders for awhile but some dealers still have copies if you attend a con. Almost all of my music is available for download from all the major music servers. I get a lot of requests for music that didn’t make it onto my CDs, like “Lady Amber” and “Fields of Fire”. These tunes are saved but have yet to make it to digital. If you’re wanting a particular song please drop me a note here and I’ll keep you in line for those waiting for favorite songs.
Meanwhile, I’m helping my Mom, who has dementia, through early September. It’s very draining as many of you know. I’ve been lucky enough to be in A/C house so far but I’ll spend August at a lake house with no A/C. I don’t know how I’ll make it so I’ll just keep praying to the weather gods to bring cooler temps to us all.
Come on , Canada. Send us a breeze !
I have Primary Progressive MS which means there are no disease modifying meds for us. But, I have a super-fine MS specialist and we decided to experiment with Copaxone. If you have any friends using this put them in touch with me as it will be good for me to share experiences with other users. So far, it has had some affect but hard for me to pin down. My thinking is a bit less cloudy, I guess that’s what is making a difference. If it slows down my increasing disability we’ll be ecstatic.
Stay well and as cool as possible as we make our way towards September. I can already feel an Autumn breeze lurking around the corner.
And HEY ! I need Twitter friends ! Find me @MegDavisPrime
