Good news all over.

And I am not being facetious!

I had another follow up on the hernia surgery, it looks good. I am still bloated with fluid, but I can go back to the pool, I can work out gently, and I can use my gazelle.

I am in a cancer research project through Huntsman Institute, they got my genetic test approved. I am negative for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations, which means I am NOT at higher risk for breast and ovarian cancers. With all the cancer in the family, my risk is 20~30%, rather than the 10% for the general population. Much better than 50~80%, don't you think?

I have started using to track my nutrition and fitness. A very good new tool in my toolkit. Like the book Younger Next Year, it is helping me plan for my improved health and wellness.

I got back on the Wii. I haven't used my balance board for so long the batteries were dead. A metaphor for life.

Oral surgery on Monday, it will go well, I insist! You hear me, universe?

And Hawaii for my birthday, huzzah.

In other news, the shoot out in Ogden happened just a block over, diagonally on the other side of the church. I was in the basement, watching TV, and didn't hear a thing.
