Let's make this the best April ever. Let's use all 30 days to make improvements. This is my 13th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 10# to go. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. . I'm continuing to exercise daily. I find Robert Cywes M.D. on Youtube has interesting talks on weight loss, auto-immune diseases, and Type 2 Diabetes.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success. "

I've been a Sparker for thirteen years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, and four GC.

My 2nd son is a Cancer survivor now for tweleve years.

    Hi! Thanks for commenting. I live in Canada and we don’t get to see specialists easily. This guy did my knee and was great. He showed me xrays we discussed everything. I had a successful knee replacement surgery but physio took me 8 months not 8 wks. I don’t have food muscle tone for years, even as teen. I will not do cortisone shots unless I am at wits end and waiting for replacement. I waited 10 months to get an appointment with him for discussion on my knee in 2014, then 4 days minus 2 yrs to get surgery not because of him, because of Canadian wait times. So for this appointment i waited 7 months so not bad. I am not in pain daily and since losing 15 lbs (15 more to drs goal )and moving more now that the weather has been better ( but snowed this am) I am doing even better.
    Was nice to see a familiar name as I have been away from spark for too long.

    WAY TO GO JIBBIE49!!! If you and/or your Dr. want to explore other options, Januet/Janumet Extended Release (XR), in the appropriate dosage, is an option. FYI: They contain both Metformin and Sitagliptin Phosphate as active ingredients.

    HI,,, I can't remember what his surgery was for. I do remember that he was doing a conference, went to go home, and something went wrong. They did the surgery ASAP . It wasn't a brain aneurysm, that I'd of remembered since I've had that. Unlike Chris Downie's mine was discovered before it burst, so I had to plan things out. I hope he's okay, but depression and a change of personality is very often the result of any brain surgery. The brain HATES being played with. I am one of the few who's on a large site for it, that isn't negative, depressed though I do go thru minor ones, I came back out soon enough. Most don't.
