Time continues to move quickly, or so it seems. This is just a quick update.
The CT scan I had last month showed nothing suspicious. The thyroid uptake and scan that was scheduled for November 3 and 4 was re-scheduled for December 1 and 2 because you have to six weeks after having a procedure that included contrast iodine before you can do the scan and uptake. Otherwise, you would get inaccurate results. Obviously, we don’t want that! Hence, the re-scheduling. I also re-scheduled my TSH test that was going to be done at the end of December. I moved that up to November 26 so those results should be back by the time the results of the thyroid uptake and scan are in. Next week, I have my annual mammogram and a bone density test. I made the mistake of scheduling them both on the same day. I will call to verify the date and time for each tomorrow. Maybe I wrote down the wrong date for one! I don’t like having two appointments in one week, because I miss too much work time. It’s hard to make that up, and I prefer to save my sick leave in case I really need it. However, we are nearing the end of the year, so I may use some next week, and definitely will be for the scan and uptake.
Today, I got new brakes and rotors and new shocks on my pickup. It wasn’t cheap, but I know the work was done well, and the shocks have a lifetime guarantee.
Let me back up a little to last Wednesday. Well, let’s make that last January. Some of you are aware that I made contact last January with my half-brother George. We’ve been periodically communicating via email since then. George’s oldest daughter Ashley, my niece, was in town last week to visit a hospitalized soldier. We got to meet for the first time last Wednesday. We went to dinner at the new Lighthouse on McCullough. I had a very nice time. It was great to get to meet Aslhey and visit with her for a short while. She’s deploying next week, so please keep her in your prayers. She expects to be back next spring or summer. This was her first trip to Texas, and she wants to come back. I hope she does.
I think that’s about it for now. Today is Veteran’s Day. If you haven’t thanked a veteran today, please do so. This doesn’t have to be confined to one day. Send a card (e-cards are great) or a note tomorrow or the next day. They’ll appreciate the gesture. If you have any veterans in your neighborhood, you can deliver your thanks in person. A couple of minutes is all it will take. You just might make a new friend.
Please pray for my friend Laura, who’s having back surgery on the 24th. Thank you!
Have a blessed and Christ-centered week!
