Well, Moving right along. The Dr. appt was a HUGE letdown. This guy says I don't have Chronic Costochondritis, he said after two minutes of tapping on me with his bony finger, that I have Fibromyalgia . Well, the thing is, I don't have any symptoms of Fibro, really. I have what feels like a knife sticking in my heart. It is there 24/7 and never goes away. I have pain in my ribs, and swelling that you can visibly see. ( he didn't want to even look at that ) The pain makes me tired, sometimes nauseas and I feel weak. It is very centralized though, not all over like Fibro would be I am told. I have a torn ligament in my back that wont heal. And a really bad pinched nerve in my neck that I am in the Physical Therapy for. Those things are a result of supporting a weakened core. So.............I am going to see if my insurance will ok me going to a Mayo clinic in a neighboring state, or to UCLA medical center for a complete work up. This "Specialist" that I saw yesterday, is only one of Three in Las Vegas and the waiting list for the other two is about six months, which is what the follow up would be with this guy.
Ok, Enough of that. :) Here are some SWEET things that have been making me smile lately. :) New little Compo baby doll. :) The lady who sold her to me even wrapped her up in this sweet rosebud diaper !! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww..................
A vintage baby dresser jar, in pink and blue with teeny rosebuds. :)
Literally couldn't get out of the thrift store fast enough with this sweet girl. She looks like a candle is supposed to fit in her arms.
This pretty bowl was sent to me by my dear friend Connie. :) I LOVE the pretty aqua and have it in my kitchen. Thank You Chickadee !!!! :) :) :)
Bought this print because I collect old Cottage prints and this one really reminds me of The Sound of Music ( my all time favorite movie ) I imagine that Maria Von Trapp is the girl in the pic. :) I did a little Before and After to the frame so it would fit in our home. :)
Do you like that PINK chenille bedspread ? Well that is one of my offerings for My First Flea Market Friday next week. :)
This sweet card makes me smile, I got this for My Best Friend and it was SO cute that I went back and got one for ME to frame so I can look at it and be reminded how Blessed I am that I have her friendship. :) I got it Here.
Yep, more dolls. If you don't like dolls then you are probably hating my blog these days. lol !! These little sweeties are both from the 50's, not sure of the maker, they both say Made In USA, so hard to tell. The tiny one is only 12" high. I haven't seen many that size. My poor Chihuahua's are sick of me talking to them all day, so these girls are going to cut the slack, lol !! :)
And finally, Could you just reach into the screen and pinch some Cheekage here ???
Smile. :) I hope my latest thrifty purchases have made YOU smile this week. :)
