Rena, I hope Elaine is right, that you have something similar to her respiratory problem.  Sending you positive thoughts for feeling better.  Breathing easy is one of those things you take for granted, until it isn't easy:(.  
  Our kids are always "our babies". Damn kids keep getting older while we don't age a bit....amazing if you ask me!
Chicago never fails to disappoint!  It is one of my favorite cities to visit. We had a wonderful time with Matt.  Great restaurants (ate waaaay to much), museum of art, and strolling the city made for a truly awesome weekend.

Tina, hope you have the good results.

Thanks, Elaine and Sharon, for the encouragement. I'd be more optimistic if my two chest x-rays, the one that found the pneumonia in June and the follow-up in August, hadn't both indicated emphysema, according to the two radiologists. If I have it, I will just have to deal with it. Part of my problem is that my attempts to get fitter by walking every day have been dashed by so many illnesses. It's been a baaaad year. I'll know more in a few weeks.

Sharon, Chicago really is a great city--so much to do and so much to EAT!! How can you not love a city that has both a river AND a lake (which might as well be a small ocean). So glad you had a good time. I hope Matt has settled in and is enjoying his job and life there.

Elaine, has the heat down there let up? I hope so. My poor sister was roasting the past few weeks. She recently moved from San Marcos to Encinitas, where it should be cooler, but it was pretty brutal there too. 

Tina, Tricia, Pat . . . it's been so long, I just know I'm forgetting people . . . hope you're all doing well.  DJ, I'm thinking about you.

p.s. Do you take bets about whether I can write a short post? I think it's just not physically possible.

Rena--

I am hoping that it isn't anything serious.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Didn't want to braggggg, but about that river and lake, we stayed at Trump Tower in a beautiful suite overlooking both the river And the lake (ocean), courtesy of my hubby's boss.  Really, how the other, other half lives.  Over the top service and luxury.  Who thought of imbedding a tv in the bathroom mirror???? Not that we watched it, lol

I've never been in there but I had heard that it was quite nice.  There are many nice things downtown.  I used to go to the Chicago Symphony many times when I was in High School as well as the museums.  I made my first return trip to the Shedd Aquarium this past spring.  What a madhouse as we went on a Saturday and then went to Navy Pier via water taxi.  It was a fun day.  Next time you're in I recommend visiting Museum campus and seeing the Field Museum, Museum of Science and Industry as well as the Shedd.  The parking is at Soldier Field for the Shedd and for the Field.  You can feel the breeze off the lake as you are walking.

Thanks, Tina!

Yeah, right, Sharon. I bet you took up shaving just so you could watch the TV in the mirror!

Sharonma - Chicago is a wonderful city....with nice people.  I lived there for a short time...it was actually my first move away from home with a girlfriend.  We froze our asses off.  Lived on Goethe St. (pronounced Gotheeee in Chicago :) at an apartment hotel about 1250 North.  Haven't been back but I hear about all the great restaurants from my son-in-law who travels there on business. 

I LOVE the tv in the mirror because I always 'listen' to my tv when I'm doing my hair and makeup at home.

Rena - Yes, heat as backed off. Enciinitas is a nice beach town.  Did you get to visit your sister in August?   I'm sorry you're having these medical problems -- it is not easy to continually be dealing with these issues.  Enough already!  (I'm screaming at the Universe for you.)

Tina - just want to say you're sweet and kind......

Tricia - what up?  A friend of mine is just back from Ireland and I can't wait to hear about her trip. 

Pat - How's it going?  Have you sold the business?

Me - The only news I have is that my 17 year old grandson got his first job at Party City for the Halloween season :)  Still pinching myself over the fact that i go to my beautiful Salk Institute every day and the opportunity to do what I do!  On the other hand, my damn right foot metatarsal continues to give me grief.  Now that my back is better, I have foot pain!  Yes, I'm complaining, even though I'm grateful it's nothing more serious.

How about a meetup in Las Vegas?  I'm half-serious :)

Hug

Elaine--It seems like you just can't win.

I'm game for a Vegas trip depending on when.
