An Honor, and a Message
First, I want to thank lovely Gina for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger award. I am overwhelmed and honored by such a generous invitation. My son was good enough to paste the image onto my site but I am still working on doing the rest of what needs to be done. The image looks naked there by itself and I hope you, Gina, and my readers will forgive me for not having it all together, but I hope to have the rest up soon. I accepted Ken’s help when he could give it and that’s why it isn’t all together. You’re a kind and beautiful soul, Gina.
I got a call from my doctor’s office this morning with the news that my Vitamin D level is quite low. Normal is 30 to 74 nanograms and mine is 21. He prescribed 2000 IU once a day. Being deficient in Vitamin D can cause heart and blood pressure problems and be quite dangerous.
I wonder if at least some of my physical problems are related to this deficiency. I’m a little scared about how low the reading is, but hopeful that the vitamin capsule will put me on the road to health again.
I sat on the deck in the sun this afternoon for 10 minutes and enjoyed watching the birds and my dogs. The sun was warm, the breeze cool, and I was so happy to be outside. I plan to make this a daily ritual. And I’m hoping for the best.
