Best moment this week? Actually, going in for my Physical Exam today. My doctor talked to me like I am a real person with my own opinions. She asked more questions than she gave advice. But she did give me advice on how to deal with others that just want to push their opinions on me and not listen. She was so great, it's too bad I have to wait a year to see her again!



  1. HMMMMM varicose veins...oh yeah I have a very good size one on my left leg below my knee from you Danielle. I have gotten used to it and now I look at it as a souvenir from you. I would do it all over again even if it meant I would get more varicose veins just to have a such a wonderful loving beautiful intelligent daughter like YOU. The joys of being a MOMMY. You look wonderful Hunny.
