OMG, I bet you are so right. I never even would have thought of that!

Sorry my mind kicked into overdrive, but I didn't want to ask those questions because the news was so fresh & raw.
I'm hoping here that it is just some Granulomas and nothing serious - still sending lot of love & energy to both of you.
I have no idea what you are talking about, but it sounds like you do! So when he gets anything back...IF he even decides to get the Xrays...maybe you can interpret for me?

Jealous about the dehydrator
I hope it's worth it for me to HAVE the dehydrator! LOL. I used to have one, but that was back during Y2K when it was way worth having dried things. Now I only dry meat, and I really dont' mind having it done in the oven. But I bet I will really appreciate that thing in the summer! Plus it's not huge so it'll store well when I'm not using it. I'm contemplating giving up the breadmaker...but only contemplating.
Yes, I know M isn't well, and most of it's mental, not just physical. He's a mess on legs, that one is. He's had a very hard life full of hard stuff and low self-esteem, and it's got to be near impossible at 55 to realize one is a shining star, worth every bit as much as anybody else. I keep telling him "God don't make junk". It's tinybit by tinybit, but he's starting to believe me. Just a little

There are other things this could be, though clearly his brain went to the worst case scenario and then when he was drinking he pushed that scenario onto you too. :( I hope 2012 is a year of health for everyone. Physical, emotional, spiritual health.... the works!
Anyone want to join me on the Walk Away the Pounds 6 week program? It's the centerpiece of my Dark of Year goals. According to the book the average weight loss is 10-15lbs during the program, and it takes about 15-30 minutes a day to do. :) The heart of the program is take a multivitamin, drink plenty of water, record one beautiful thing every day, and walk at home (one mile/day at the start of the program working up to 3 miles/day by the end of week 6... the goal is a 15 minute mile so even by the end it's only about 45 minutes/day).
First of all, how do you burn kids' handprints into wood? Without burning the hands?
Thanks, for the hugs. I need them! I don't know about follow-up. He's more like "if I don't address it, it doesn't exist". I don't know about TB; I don't think so. Why do you ask? Anyway, srsly, the night he told me that (Thursday) I was looking at my Treasure Map, which has things like "M is healthy (etc)" on it, and wondering why in the world it would go so oppositely awry...I'm glad it didn't! Maybe he will get healthy (sober?) after all!

YES. YES YES YES. I have to find the DVD but then I am on board for sure. DH and I were just discussing this same goal...finding time to take care of our bodies...and my doc just told me today that all the body pains I've been having is because I'm not using it. *duh* - but it really did take her telling me that to really, really realize it. To have some buddies would be awesome! When do we start? ;)
I am going to hit him upside the head, srsly
And yes, me too, I'd love to join in the exercise. Clay, does it have to be Sansone, right? I went to that site, and they have a whole 15 minute workout for free on there! It wasn't that bad; I could do that.
