Not a Good Day.

At the moment my health sucks. Seriously. Am having tests for all sorts of stuff, but I do suspect the dreaded big M is lurking behind all of the things going on. Yes, that we shall not speak of, *menopause*.

Even more concerning is Wise Woman's health. She is having major back pain, and is unstable on her feet. She has been bending too much and has pushed her physical boundaries. The worry is that last time this happened she suffered another spontaneous fracture of her vertebrae. I do not think at nearly 91 she could tolerate the intense pain this brings. The last one nearly took her life and it was two years ago. Makes my issues seem trivial.

And our employee has rung in sick... So the meeting at the school we had organised for Boy 1, and the fact that I was meant to work today are all out the window.

Not a good start so far...

Get back under the covers and wait until today is over.

Hey MM.

Sorry to read of your troubles, my friend.

I hope your week gets better from here on in.

Oh, MM, sending sympathy and virtual chocolate. I hope all of you pull out of it soon!

BTW: Of the forty-some symptoms of peri-menopause, I have above half, thank you very much. I'm considering banning the topic. For the next ten years. Or so.

Maybe today was International Crummy Day day?

I hope you get some good health news for both you and WW soon. Can you reschedule the meeting?
