Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

X is for

Blogging from A to Z
April Challenge

X is for X-ray
What else? Sure I'm getting away with an easy X but I had a chest x-ray recently so it's been on my mind.

I am a survivor of a massive pulmonary embolism. The doctors mentioned that there were lots of little clots in both lungs before the big one came through. I spent a week in the hospital (and only got to go home because our adult son was home with me) and six weeks months on blood thinners then pronounced clear. Now that I'm trying to get 2,016 miles in this year I was worried about "lots of little clots in both lungs" so I had a chest x-ray.

I'm clean.

So that's my X post, have a X-mas tree ;-)

Thank you Gizmodo

I'm also doing the challenge, but on two blogs. I was fortunate enough to see this day coming, so when I was at the dentist last week I photographed the X-ray of my teeth showing on his computer.

Gardening blog was harder, but I learned what to call something I've been photographing for months without knowing it had a name.

Thanks Barb, that was a great post on Xeriscaping! I don't have a google+ account yet so couldn't comment.

Good thinking while at the dentist!
