6 Friday Fragments


Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. Here we go:
  1. Funny Video Made Me Laugh

    I saw this compilation of funny baptisms on God Vine--the kids are hilarious!
  2. Free Lunch

    Tuesday because of the bad weather, my workplace bought pizza and salad for everyone who came in to work that day! I wore my winter coat because it was too windy for an umbrella to do any good. Many homes were without power and many schools were closed. We are thankful that our power stayed on!
  3. Pet Evacuation Too

    Over at Murray's Mouth, (a new blog to us), I was happy to read that transit systems and shelters were accepting pets to during the evacuation due to the super storm Sandy.
  4. Donations

    Did you know?

    $25 transports a child with cancer to monthly follow-up appointments
    $84 provides meals for a week to a parent who stays with her child in the hospital
    $250 provides three nights of lodging for a child with cancer and their family, prior to necessary surgery
    $750 keeps a child with cancer insured for a month so they can get the treatment they need
    $1000 transports a child across the country to get specialized treatment unavailable close to home
    $2,898 provides lodging for a child with cancer and a parent during six weeks of radiation treatment

    I just found this out after making our $135 to the National Children's Cancer Society for comments we received in October.
  5. Thankful

    This was only 3 streets away from us!

    We are so thankful our power stayed on this week with 135,000 homes in our area losing theirs due to many power lines being blown down or knocked down by falling trees.
  6. Bones

    My doctor says my bones are getting thinner and my Osteoporosis is worse!   This is NOT what I wanted to hear.  I'm not in pain though since I got off the Fosomax--that gave me pain in my joints--I'd even wake up at night with pain when I was on that.  The Doctor said that's just one treatment, there are lots of other options.

So sorry to hear that your osteoporosis is worse. I hope you and your doc find something really effective that won't have bad side effects.

Good news about the shelters, though. It must be tough to stay open.

I have arthritis, so far in just one finger, and I can't imagine having that pain in bigger more important joints. I'll send out a prayer for you!

Sparkle said...

I hope your doctor has better solutions for your osteoporosis! That Fosomax sounds like it had awful side effects.

Hope your doctor finds something to help your bones get stronger without causing you discomfort. I'm glad you didn't lose power and it was nice of your work to buy lunch for those who could make it in!

Karen, you should work in my office--if the wind blows from the east they are buying lunch. It's crazy. We do birthdays, holidays, Fridays, etc. You name it, they have a party. I just eat my yogurt and carrot sticks regardless.

Criminy, what's with the bones??! I hope they give you something better that WORKS!

I just read that Cleveland was out of power for awhile. UGH! That is NOT fun--I know from experience. :( Glad you guys were okay.

So glad you had power and stayed safe!

Oh my goodness! Thankfully that tree was not on your property!

I am so sorry to hear about your bone mass. Please be careful this winter as you move about, broken bones are terrible..trust me!!

Smellyann said...

That tree, omgosh!! Yikes. We didn't get it anywhere near like that here.

Sorry about your bones. :( I'm not quite there yet but I have the precursor, osteopaenia. Sorry the Fosamax didn't work for you.
