A Public Service Announcement

A few months back you may remember a post about my health and how I was better, blah, blah, blah...

Well, here's the PSA. Listen to your bodies folks. As busy people we tend to push our health to the back-burner. We need to take care of ourselves so that we can take care of the others in our lives.

On Monday, I mentioned to my doctor that I was having shortness of breathe and I didn't want to make a huge deal out of it, but was there any testing that could be done to make sure that the blood clots weren't back in my lungs again. He said no and scheduled a CAT scan (when you hear that word to do automatically see the Gary Larson comic of the doctor scanning a person with a stiff orange cat - I always do). The scan found three small clots. My heart is ok, but I am now on medication again.

So the moral of the story is LISTEN TO YOUR BODY when it is telling you something is not right.

On a happier note. Ian had a singing part in the holiday program. He also got to do some break dancing. He was so excited.
Here's one of Simon - wearing a head band that I made for my secret santa.
Do you think I can still give it to her OR should I be a good mom and make another?
