Wonder - sorry to hear about the Afib. MY DH has it if I remember correctly. So far it hasn't caused any real concern. My late mother and her mother were both extremely healthy. I never imagined that I would have any health concerns - Breast cancer and now kidney disease and MGUS - so far the kidneys and the MGUS aren't causing any trouble except for extra blood draws and doctor visits. As long as things stay stable I won't complain.

Blizzard warnings for tomorrow afternoon till Thursday at noon - it was near 80 yesterday and today!!! Weather peeps are saying snow probably won't stick to the roads, though 4- 8" predicted as well as 60mph winds. It's supposed to start out as rain in the morning and then turning to snow in the afternoon. As much as I enjoy the occasional extra day off, I really hope its not bad enough for a snow day - between the snow day in March and the strike, too many things have been cancelled or re-scheduled. I have a busy day tomorrow starting with a staffing at 7:00am and ending with a 504 meeting starting at 3:00 - in between I have kids to see . and 1:1 meeting with my supervisor who returned from maternity lave last week. Also need to start working on my self-appraisal and End of Year data. This year, it is stressing me out!!!

Ruth - hope ND is not in the way of the storm. Funny picture of tornado drill being cancelled due to snow!!!

Im too tired to comment about everyone's posts, but I read each one and said a prayer for all of you struggling, and a prayer of Thanksgiving for those with joyous things to share.

I got in 2 HIIT workouts on mon and Tues, which was good because I need to play taxi driver the rest of the week.

DS is starting a new consulting gig tomorrow, 1.5 hr drive each way on country roads. At least it will be cash in, but I will have to pick up some more parenting duties. I hope he finds a job close by soon, for his sake (and mine)

I see oncologist tomorrow. I am really trying to determine how much risk I am putting myself in by taking an AI and having increased blood sugar, cholesterol and significantly decreased bone density (and side effects of treatment for osteoporosis) vs not taking AI.

I will ask more questions tomorrow. If I can I will walk around the hospital campus before jumping back into Mom mode!

2Fun, maybe ask about switching to Tamoxifen. One of my friends with osteoporosis got an endocrinologist involved from the start, and with his input that's what was decided on as best for her situation.

Enjoy the wedding, Jo!

hey, Wonderland, I’m sorry to hear about the Afib. My dad has had it for years and took blood thinners, until recently when he had some internal bleeding- he’s now scheduled for a procedure called The Watchman. He’s going on May 1- so I’ll let you know how it goes. It puts a net like thing in the left ventricle- the spot where Afib is a problem. Good luck to you and yes keep exercising

Wonderland, my mom had AFib as well as my brother. It is manageable (mom's case) and/or can be cured (brother's case). It was some time ago since they did a procedure on my brother (15 years?) at the Cleveland Clinic.

Jo, I don't know how you handle so many pets. That boarding facility sounds great. 

2Fun, I switched to Tamoxifen and felt much better. It also strengthens bones if you are postmenopause. But I did 4.5 years of AIs. I wanted to do 5 but side effects warranted a change. I do feel good about lasting that long because Tamoxifen comes with its own set of problems (endometrial changes) and I have had to keep reducing the dose which I may not have been able to do if I had not done the AIs beforehand. This is all so complicated! Get a second opinion. I have found it helpful to seek second/third opinions at every stage because things are not static.

I taught the granddog to run on a leash attached to me while I biked. We will practice in the park today. Then it's salsa tonight.

I have had 3 years of AI and am now switching to Tamoxifen due to AI side effects. I haven't started yet and have been doing a lot of research on "lower" doses than the 20 standard. Have seen 10 and as low as 5...you "had to keep reducing the dose"...what are you taking?

Trying to get as much info as possible before my visit with MO next month after my 3 month holiday to reset before switch from Arimidex to Tamox.

I went to Zumba this morning. It started snowing like crazy about noon & is still at it. I did go back to another dance class this evening because:

1. I only live a couple blocks from the gym so figured I could make it back & forth in one piece.

2. I am logging all my food in an attempt to get rid of the vacation pounds, we went out to lunch so if I hadn't done more exercise, I would have only had 250 calories to eat for the rest of the day!

Today was my last day filling in for a paternity leave.....The assistant principal made a point to thank me and compliment me. A short time later, the principal was sitting in my chair and had a bamboo plant to say thank you. She then asked if I would be around for awhile. I asked her is she meant the district and I said yeah 3 or 4 more years. She then went on to say if they need someone again, they will ask for me. I'm one of 3 float School Psychologists for the district - This is the first time I've covered and had such a nice send off. It really made me feel valued.

Then after work, the school nurse called me - the principal asked her to call me to ask if I could come in tomorrow morning to help - a former student had died - I generally don't work Fridays but said I would come in for a couple hours. The nurse and I worked together over 30 years ago at another school (1987 - 89). Yes we are that old!!!! The nurse called the guy I was covering for to get my cell - I do give my personal cell to people to reach me, but I'm particular who I give it to. My district phone number is only voice mail. I am on the district crisis team, so if it was M-Th, I could have been called out. My boss will comp me (or pay, but I'd rather have the time). The district crisis team got 3 other requests this afternoon for tomorrow, but the emails usually don't give any information. Wonder what is going on!!! All I know about this student is that he would have been a junior and previously went to the school - I don't even have the student's name. I know there have been a couple suicides in neighboring districts recently. So sad.

Passover is in 8 days. The first sedar is next Friday night. My DD#1 and SIL get here next Thursday morning. I need to finish cleaning the kitchen on Sunday, plan a menu and start cooking! I am hosting both sedars, but I only have 1 guest the first night and just us the second night - DH, me, DD#1 and SIL. So really don't need all that much food. I keep my menus from year to year so I can reference them for ideas - this is the one holiday that I do very little baking. I'll make 1 or 2 different types of passover cookies - chocolate chip and maybe another type. Lots of fruit, veggies, chicken, fish and beef, quinoa and potatoes.

Sweet dreams

I had to cancel tentative plans for a sedar this year because my move got moved until right in the middle of it all (we are moving on the 20th! ack! So much to do!). I will make matzoh ball soup and roast a chicken for Friday night and perhaps hubby and I will say a few lines about redemption and freedom and justice to each other.... I always feel a little 'homesick' for my childhood this time of year: growing up, Passover was my favorite holiday and yes, the food definitely had something to do with that, but of course, for me it was really about family..there is no time of year I miss my Mom more than at Passover ...

But that's ok, it will be 'next year' before I know it, and I've already told friends and extended family to mark their calendars for a huge Passover celebration in my new home in Santa Fe in 2020...

As for exercise, it has been mostly about packing boxes. Hoping to get a hike in this weekend, when I am not finishing up the packing!
