Things We Have in Common

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S. - a day we take time to remember those who have served their country and gave the ultimate sacrifice. Without them, we don't truly know what kind of country we would be living in, or government we would be experiencing.

I watched 1968, Part 2, Spring, on CNN last night. So much turmoil we lived through.... I think many forget the resistance of the time. And, here we are, once again, facing the same issues. History repeats itself. Through it all, it is important that we bear in mind that we have more commonalities than differences.

Spend the day celebrating the things we have in common.

Last week's Dr appointment was in preparation for tomorrow. I will (finally) begin examination by a Muscular Dystrophy specialist.
I may or may not be able to post depending upon what tests he decides to begin with. There are tests which leave me unable to even walk for a couple of days. I hope he waits on those.

Great advice as always.

I wish you well with the new doctor and that his treatment will be more help than hinderance.

Wonderful post for your special day! Australia owes much to USA during the Battle of the Coral Sea. You saved us from an invasion by the Japanese. My 84th birthday tomorrow (30 May)!!!!

If you hope he waits on those which leave you unable to even walk for a couple of days, I can only hope the same thing for you, even if that can only put them off to later.
What I do hope on my side is that all these tests will be useful for finding a good treatment which will make you get rid of all your problems, at least for quite a while, and ideally once and for all.
Congratulations, I am proud of my friend. I know that it's taking tremendous courage for you to go on like this, but I know also that you are not lacking courage.
Love, hugs and big bisous my darlings Jean and Pat.

I just recently "re-discovered" your blog and have enjoyed grousing around in it today! I sent a note to a buddy earlier today that it dawned on me that I've been a committed masturbator for only 68 years - guess I can no longer claim to be going through a phase!

My best to you...and thanks for the great blog - D
