Hope you all had a great weekend! The weather was beautiful here at Walking on Sunshine…in the 70’s…today, we’re back in the 40’s! I worked on transplanting some of the vegetables that we started by seed while the Colonel continued working on our garden.
Olivia’s doctor called on Friday and with the results of her blood work. Good news, no signs of rheumatoid arthritis. However, her Vitamin D level is very low…very low. Normal levels are anywhere from 30 to 100…Olivia’s level is 10.
Having a Vitamin D deficiency can lead to muscle pain and achy joints. So for the next three months she will be on a higher than normal Vitamin D supplement. She will have to repeat her blood work each month so the doctor can check the level to see if it’s increasing. Her discs are still herniated and we’ll discuss what to do with that at our next appointment with the spine doctor.
The Colonel and I went furniture shopping on Saturday…for Olivia’s room. Her furniture is originally from a cabin my parents owned YEARS ago. And when they purchased the cabin the furniture was already OLD! But it was very good furniture so the Colonel lovingly refinished it and it has looked beautiful in her room until…now.
The drawers do not close properly anymore. The desk is so small she cannot even fit in the opening where the chair is suppose to be! How sad is this??? So off we went shopping and picked out a beautiful antique white dresser with mirror and a new matching desk and chair….all to be delivered in 6-8 weeks! Pictures will be posted!!!
The Colonel made delicious homemade pizza last night. I had taken some frozen pizza dough out of the freezer before we went to church last night. When we came home, he offered to bake it. He divided the loaf and made us each individual pizzas, very thin and crispy…just like I like it!
