Health Updates

My Mother is doing great. She's not had any falls lately, and got her new glasses this past week, so hopefully things will be a lot better for her. The optometrist said she had cataracts in both of her eyes, and they will need to get removed, although they are not that bad yet.

My health has been on the mend. I went to the doctor a week ago today, and was tested for valley fever, pneumonia and broken ribs. The valley fever results were negative, the x-rays showed my lungs were clear and I had no breakage of my ribs. The doctor had already indicated to me she thought that it was the cartilage that has been messed up from my coughing which would explain the pain. There were signs in my blood work of an infection, so I'm on antibiotics. On the whole I am feeling much better now.

This past Sunday my two wonderful home teachers came and gave me a beautiful blessing. Rachel, my cat who was found at the Temple as a kitten, began running between my legs during the blessing, as if to say that not only does Heavenly Father love me, so does she. I know she has been worried at my wheezing because I've awoken in bed to find her face over my mouth to see if I was still breathing. She is a real blessing to have, she also comes and checks on me when I'm having a bad time emotionally.

My thanks and love to everyone who has called and sent me written messages, hopefully I will see you soon. I have Bushman cousin who is giving her Relief Society lesson on Sunday, and her Ward meets at the same time as mine, so I will probably be there this Sunday.
