In the past month, I've have had several tests done, three of which should be done yearly but it had been three years. The results of these three were all good, no symptoms of anything, and my teeth are still intact, although I do need to have a broken molar extracted and two 40 yr old silver fillings removed and replaced with the new stuff that's being used now. The old silver fillings are what causes teeth to crack and break off because the silver expands and contracts causing pressure on the teeth. Who knew? Since none of this is causing me any trouble at the moment, it will wait for a while. Sorry, no pictures of teeth cleaning or mammogram or pap test. The last test was a bone density exam. I'm not worried about this one either because I had one ten years ago when I was 51 and it showed my bones were that of a 20 yr. old. :yes: However, since I've gone through menopause, a bone density exam will tell if I have the beginning of osteoporosis. This is NOT the same as osteo arthritis, which I have.
Especially. It does wonders. I laugh out loud when I come across old family photos and remember amusing things of the moment. The following photo was taken on Christmas Day 1982 with my three children. We were all showing something we'd received as a gift. When I brought the photos home to show the kids, I remember Kathy staring at this one intently. She then announced very seriously:
"Mom, you have triangle hair"
She stared at it again then asked why I and her brother had snow on our heads because it doesn't snow in Arizona. Mike was thrilled with his new 'boom box', Kathy loved her 'pom poms' and Suzy was too little to know anything other than she was sitting in mom's lap. It's the little touching memories like this that make me smile.
