 So, I'm having a problem with my right calf... it feels like a constant charlie horse (muscle cramp) which started last Monday. The last time I had something like this they thought it was a blood clot, so I got sent for a full ultrasound workup. Nothing like someone pushing with all his might on the area that hurts! I've come to the conclusion that my body hates exercise: the first I started when my hubby and I took ballroom dancing classes and this one started after we bought sneakers for walking. etc. Coincidence? I think not! (I've checked and this doesn't seem to have any connection to the Posttumour Cerebri or the Diamox pills I'm on.)

However, my body will NOT get the best of me! My appointment ran late and hubby had to leave for his own doctor appointment. So I started walking in the direction of his doctor's office and ended up walking a mile... without dying! It's a Canada Day miracle! Of course my right leg hurt but I ignored it.

Oh yeah... and I'm up to 34lbs. lost! Woot woot!

Plastic Wrap, Trap Door, The Rage, and Ransack the Universe! All awesome and all in TO!
I might even be up for some shows too if someone were to take on the the not-so-flattering job of making sure I don't fall down, I don't break anything, and that no one pays me in wooden nickels! WOW! I can see the line forming fast!!!)
Anyway, I'll still be moseying around and thanks for all the support! You all ROCK!
