Oh, My Aching Back


Good Morning,
I am taking a moment to tell those of you reading my blog, why I have not been making many posts. I managed to mess up my back on May 21. Won’t go in to all the details, but after seeing the Dr and having a CAT scan, I found that I had 2 compression fractures. It is getting a little better day by day. Thank God, and I mean that literally. I want to tell you women of a certain age, to pay attention to your calcium intake. I didn’t, and they tell me that osteoporosis is the reason for my fractures. Well, enough about pain and sickness! I want to get back to the fun stuff, so I am off to check up on a few of my favorite bloggers, and maybe mess around with my blog for a bit. The picture on this post is of a little stitchery I did a few years ago, and gave to one of my sisters. Have a great day y’all.

Lilly, I've enjoyed browsing your blog and seeing your beautiful stitcheries and quilts. Thank you for dropping by my blog and for leaving such a sweet message. Thank you for the calcium reminder. I'm pretty bad about remembering to take mine. I hope you get well soon. Take care.
Aloha!

Good Morning Lilly,

I am so sorry your back is being a problem right now. As I get older I realize how important all of the vitamins and calcium is and not to take your health for granted. Your Chicken/chicks hanger is adorable!

I hope you will be feeling your old self again soon. I have very painful backaches every couple of months. Yes, we women of a certain age should take good care of our selves.

Ouch!! I hope your back feels much, much better soon.
My mother had osteoporosis and I remember some of the problems she had. And yet I still manage to forget the calcium supplement!
