Happy Friday to you all!

It has been a whole week since I've written. I thought that was super nice of myy sister, Laura, to make an entry on my birthday. Thanks for all your kind wishes and words--I had a wonderful day. I broke out of my normal routine, and went over to my sister-in-law's scrapbooking store, where she now has fabric...and took a quilting class. It was so much fun! I even went out to lunch too, and had fun there. But, as usual, I was pretty wiped out when I got home. :) Still don't have the energy that I would like to have.

I also went out to lunch with a friend on Wednesday, and that was good too. However, I have kind of "paid the price" this week for going a little more than usual...and guess I still need to pace myself better. I am still having some stomach problems--we're not sure if it is just my body getting adjusted to my new "plumbing" or if it's related to what I eat. But I need to be very careful not to eat too much...and I still struggle because I have very little desire to eat. It is still a learning process, and I am still in recovery mode, although i would like to deny that!

I am so thankful to be taking less pills. Like I said last week, I am off the cumadin, and so don't have to have blood work taken every week. (My arm was starting to look a little like a pin cushion!) I am also off the Flagell for the C-Dif, and am hoping with all my heart to be done with C-Dif forever!

I get calls almost daily from Katie, my daughter, who just got engaged...and we are happy that now we can officially work on her wedding plans. (We were working on them, but now we have the official "go ahead" to do whatever needs to get done). Once again I am working on a wedding long-distance. It would be nice if we could be closer to work on some of these things together...but thank heavens for phones and emails, and other ways of communication. :) Well, that's about it for today. I have been taking some walks with my dog this week, and we both enjoy that. Have a good Friday. Love to all, Louise


  1. Hi Louise
    So happy to hear your medications are lightening up and congratulations on Katie's engagement!! Also belated happy birthday!!!! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. It was fun to talk to you the other day. Good luck with all the wedding plans!


  3. Hi Louise, like I said, your dress was so pretty today in church, loved the
    way it softly flows, and colors too, really beautiful.......those legs of yours
    have stayed in shape, that is for sure, see I noticed, think your hose were
    blue??! Nice. Hair growing great, nice and dark, looks good on you, but
    I like you with a few blond streaks, you know, soon you can do that.
    .......Also.......Happy April belated birthday to my fellow "Aries" sister, I
    was in Relief Society on April 8th and they gave us both a present, wow,
    what a nice big wonderful smelling candle, I am enjoying.
    NOW, as for that sick tummy, I wonder if part could be a virus (flu)?!
    Louise, I kid you not, I was very sick for three full weeks and now this
    is week 5 and I still have a small tummy was awful and
    it seemed to start in nose, then throat, then chest, then went back up into my darn ears, caused all kinds of intestinal problems and lungs. Doctor put me on two different antibotics....nothing has worked, I am
    just taking it easy. Just try to get soup down, seems that helped me
    more than anything.
    Sorry, I was out of loop so long, but will check on you more often here.
    Like I said, I am just around the corner and if I can't run for you I will
    make sure it gets done, so don't hesitate to call me still. 602-622829
    is cell number.........home number we don't answer often, but you can
    call me and leave message anyway on either phone...hom 480-998-4657.
    Luv, Peggy
