Catching Up ... Or At Least Trying To!

Went to get my blood work done at the lab this morning and got the initial results back from the doctor which all check out okay. Apparently the Lyme Disease test takes a little longer but for the most part everything, including my blood glucose levels which can be tricky, are within normal limits. Like Kat, one of my doctor's nurses, always tells me "you can't have anything simple or normal, can you?" She is so right! So, I guess I'll wait a little longer and see what's what. I haven't had as much of the numbness and tingling today as I did the past few days so maybe whatever it is will be just some passing mystery malady that clears up on its own after clearing out my bank account with those outrageous co-pays we have! I'll let you know once I know something more.

In the meantime, I am horribly remiss in posting this next tidbit ... way back on October 3rd, I received the following award from Zubli and Shinade -

- and I am quite honored at having received it. Thank you so much to Zubli and Shinade!

Now if you thought I was late in posting that award, this next one is even later! Sandee from Comedy+ gave me this award on September 25th and it's quite the special award as I really do love Christmas and all that it stands for (aside from all the commercialization that is!).

This award originated at Santa's Community Blog and can be passed on to as many other bloggers as I'd like. According to Santa, the Spirit of Christmas Award:
"Quite simply it is those that have a generous and giving nature. Those who care about others. Those who have a kind word to say or a broad shoulder to lean on in the times that others need that. Those who display the "Spirit of Christmas".
To that end, I am passing this lovely little award on to Mimi for obvious reasons, Akelamalu because she's just the sweetest ever, Mighty Mom from Texas who has a wonderful blog that shows off her giving nature, and two of the nicest Connecticut bloggers I know - Patti and Ralph who are also husband and wife. Awardees can pick up the award code here and then pass it on to whomever they also feel displays the "Spirit of Christmas". A very belated thank you to Sandee for this very nice award!

    Glad it's good news so far - darned tests.

    Otherwise Perfect! See if you leave these things for long enough you can play catch up far more easily!
    Congratulations to all the winners.

  2. what a co-incidence, I had blood too this week but mine was to make sure my diabetes is still gone since my stomach by-pass surgery a year and a half ago. I won't know the results until tuesday but I feel great so I am thinking my blood is normal.

    Congrats to you, on the awards that is...not waiting for test results. I hope you find out something good and SOON!!!

  4. Christmas so soon?

    But I like the snowflakes on the badge.

    LYME Disease? Yikes! I hope not.

    But you make it sound like its all encouraging... I hope that's the way this continues to go....

  5. Oh My Goodness!!

    I'm just speechless!

    Linda, this is so very sweet of you, thank you very much.

    I do really hope that your tests all come out fine and that your ailments dissapear!

  6. Hi Linda, Saturday morning catch-up time for me. I just read your Thursday and Friday medical stuff.
    No brain? Well you can always get a role in "The Wizard of Oz" the next time it goes on the road. ;-)

    I hope your symptoms are gone by today. Hmmm...They started on Monday...maybe you just did too much last weekend with Mags and Mo. Having fun can take a physical toll. ;-)

    Thanks so much for the award. I LOVE all things Christmas. Santa is the best!!
    That was very kind.

    Have a good weekend ~

  7. I have everything crossed for the results of your tests Linda.

  8. Hoping everything is ok from those tests.

  9. Congratulaions. Great awards which you are quite deserving of.

  10. Glad to hear that your tests are so far normal. Maybe it was just a passing thing. We'll hope so.

    I hope the remainder of tests come back normal. I hate it when they do a bunch and leave you feeling like the newest guinea pig in the office. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

  12. Have been catching up you must be on edge a little, hope all the tests come out well.

  13. Linda, many thanks for the thoughtful mention, actually a gift. And what's more Christmas than giving? It is my honor to receive Santa! Merry quack-quack Linda!
