    Yep in about 9 hours.

    I have 40 minutes left where I can eat. I broke my radius. I made it 40 years without any broken bones. The worst part is that I won't be able to ride for 6 weeks or longer.

    The pressure of my heart is getting high again.

    The doctor scheduled me to have another appointment in 4 moths to see if the pressure keeps getting higher. If it is then I have to have a mitral valve replacement. It's a very scary thing. My husband keeps saying everything is gonna be okey. I really hope so. I lift...

    Just Keeps Getting Better

    Well it's official... I have a tumor in the thyroid and it needs to come out. Yesterday they were kind enough to take this lovely camera and, going through my nose, took a look at my vocal cords and such.  I will have a biopsy and sonogram, hopefully next week to...
