It all began when I wrote that I was going to Cincinnati area to my grand daughter's high school graduation. I asked if those who lived in the area wanted to get together for lunch. It grew from there to a very special time in all our hearts and memories. Some of you met my grand daughter at lunch the first day there.
Well, this May she is graduating from medical school. Yes, Dr. Rebekah Stroup!!!! Her residency will be in Chattanooga, TN. She is specializing in breast surgery!!!!! It will take another five to seven years for her to finish schooling completely, but she is dedicated and I'm sure she will be a good doctor!!
And Friday my son, her father, will turn 50!!! Good grief, I am getting old! LOL! And, I finally found out the reason I was hospitalized in January. Although the four days of IV antibiotics really did me some good, no one was sure what my problem was other than a vague infection, shadows in the CT scan----. Well, my PC dr put it all together at my visit last week when I told her I still had the same pains and problems. My colonoscopy had showed diverticula. Evidently, an infection formed in there and and wa la Diverticulitis!!! The IVs knocked it down for awhile, but when the effect wore off it blew up again. So now I am eating a smooth diet, taking oral antibiotics and hoping for healing. Gees who said these were the Golden Years?
