Finally a Bit of Good News

Thank goodness! It is about time we had something go the right way.

We kept mum about this one, so as not to worry people unnecessarily. One of the reasons Anne was so overloaded on Tuesday of last week was that we had a call from Dr. Dhruv's office, and they asked if we could pick up a lab slip. Dr. Dhruv had commented at Anne's last appt, on 1 May, that her blood sugar was high. I guess she kept thinking about it and decided to play it safe. The lab slip was for a 3-hour glucose tolerance test, which tests for diabetes, and hypoglycemia too. Needless to say, we have been a bit worried about this, as that is the last thing Anne needs on top of everything else. We finally got the results today and they came out in the normal range! Hurrah! What a relief!

There isn't much else going on. We ran some errands today, partly in the quest to get out of the house and help keep Anne active. It was a nice time out, but good to get home. I could quite happily stay home a lot more than we do. There is always so much to do, and if I don't want to work on the house, there is always knitting, reading, spinning, etc.

Speaking of spinning, Anne has been working on it again, but the drive belt needed to be tightened. I did that just a bit ago, and it is working out better. The thing is, it is just string, and it starts to stretch out a bit. Add to that, there are three different whorls it can go around, which affects how fast the flyer goes, and hence how fast yarn is wound onto the bobbin. Oh well, it is still fun, sorting out all the ins and outs of it all.

It is really nice outside today, only to get to 84, which I think it has done. A cool couple of days before we hit the 90's again.

Well, anyway, wanted to let you know the good news, even if you didn't know there was potential for bad news along that line. Take care and more later!
