I was going to post a selfie, but I couldn't find an angle that didn't leave me looking haggard and cranky, so you get to see my bedside table instead.

How To Make Your Nails Shinier At Home

Shinier Nails at Home

By: Adonia Dennis

Having wonderful looking nails reflects your beauty and hygiene. Your nails can also tell underlying health conditions, such as infections, skin diseases, and malnutrition. Nails are keratin layers, which are proteins that make up the outer layer of your skin and your hair. If your nails look dull and unhealthy, you may have vitamin and mineral deficiency.

I'm Home

Get Well Flowers

These flowers are from the Brain Trust. Thanks, Jen, Michele, Michael, Eric, and Mark

This will probably be pretty brief as I am still rather woozy, but I didn't want to delay any longer letting everyone know that I'm home and well. If we're friends on Facebook you may have seen some short updates to that effect.

Is Light And Learning Available Here? Yes!

Heart, Love, Health

In a previous post I invited questions, and Susan had this to offer:

So lovely and generous - yes I have a question or maybe an observation for you to consider. In my teachings about living well when unwell there is an area where I ask you to consider language that is coming your way, and that you are now using. Can you discern the difference between "acknowledging" and "complaining" - and as you travel through the health care experience can you notice those around you in this regard. Language, as you know, particularly when writing sets a tone for discovery. I find even within sadness there is much light and learning, and my sense is with your writing skills, this will be presented through your sharing. Thank you, Molly.

Yay! A Day Full Of Support And A Solution To The Post-Surgery Wardrobe Challenge

Post-surgery wardrobe solution

Woohoo! I  just solved my post-surgery wardrobe challenge. A while back I bought some oversized t-shirt like tops and sleep shirts, but I've since been told that I'm not likely to be able to raise my arms over my head for the first 4-5 days post-mastectomy. This afternoon I shopped for over-sized (to accommodate swelling, four (!) surgical drains, and bandages) button-front shirts, and was frustrated by the crappy fabric, colors, etc., not to mention the idea of spending money on shirts I won't wear more than a week or so. So I asked Miles if I could borrow from his extensive wardrobe of men's dress shirts. The oldest and softest will be perfectly comfortable on a number of levels. Problem solved!

How To Turn Your Body Into A Fat Burning Machine

Woman Eating Healthy Meal

When women gain weight, their first instinct is to cut calories - often dramatically! This approach can quickly backfire resulting in, at best, no weight loss and, at worst, weight gain. When you combine calorie restriction with intense exercise, the potential for this unwanted result is even higher.

Reeling And Rocking, Would Rather Be Rocking And Rolling

I think this will be a quick check-in, but who knows what will happen once I get started. Once I get rolling in lieu of reeling, so to speak.

Oh Boy. Of Big Decisions, Political Correctness (Not), And The Impossibility Of Getting It "Right"

decisions

First, thank you to everyone who has patiently awaited this update. I told some of you that I would post "shortly" after our doctors' appointments last Monday, and it has taken me a couple of days to feel settled enough to share.
