<h2> FLAMING AGAIN, SO TIME TO START A NEW THREAD... </h2>
Thanks for your support and prayers once again, this time for my MIL. She has what's called "arteriovenous malformations" in her stomach that cause a slow seepage of blood and there's no real treatment except to build up her blood from the anemia with iron and periodic transfusions if it gets too low I guess. She didn't like this idea at first but is accepting it. We are her blood type so will donate blood as she needs it. She's 80 and this worsens with age they say as well as acid stomach so they have her on both prilosec and zantac. She may get to come home today or tomorrow if they can get her blood count up so DH has to see how she is before he decides when/if to come to the beach. I am leaving Sunday for sure as I have to meet DS at the Richmond airport at 11 AM on the way to the outer banks of NC. DH will come when/if he's comfortable that his Mom can get by on her own for a few days. She's normally quite independent and hates that this is happening to her and that DH may be delayed for his vacation, but DH really wants to be sure she's ok understandably! She lives in our downstairs in an MIL apartment we built her when we built this house 18 years ago, so we're all very used to each other, lol...
I got a 3 day T-tapp BC before all this happened but of course was interrupted. I got Tempo, Maxi 1 and Maxi 2 done. Today I'll do Tempo Arms and go to work and tie up lots of loose ends so I can go to the beach, yay!
Who will volunteer to start the thread when we're flaming while I'm away? It's not that hard and may need to be done twice? Thanks, whoever does it...
Artmaker, that's cool about your financial planner's approach. I like that!
Penny, you're amazing to do the workouts at the hotel and traveling...I do hope to do the workouts at the beach, though, too. Sorry your shoes are taking so long to get there! I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of them. Is there any way to track your order?
SusanDe, how are the workouts going since the clinic? Do you feel a difference and remember stuff as you do the moves now?
Writemore, still praying for you and hope to hear from you...
Sandy, how's the workouts going? Hope well! Remember, there's lots of support here.
Poppy,what beach do you go to? Did you have a nice time? Your plans sounded great.
Suz, I tried Pilates and found it hard on my neck and shoulders so probably not doing the "hundreds" and moves like that with head and shoulders off the floor right. I was using a tape but maybe if you were in a class they could advise on things like that. It is real good for the core, I could tell.
Marion, so good to hear from you and hope you have a fabulous time in the Poconos. I'm sure you will!
Everaf, are you ordering HTF or do you have it yet?
Take care all, and I'll update as I can...
