Machka: Keeping you in my prayers and good thoughts. I hope you get a resolution that solves the problem and allows you to enjoy long-distance bike rides again. The bone density scan and MRI are both good ideas. I have had two bone density scans, several years apart. The first one showed bone loss and I was advised to take calcium and exercise. The second one was set up by my new doctor. It showed increased bone density to the point I’m out of the worry zone. I am thrilled and very happy about it. I was told by my previous doctor that it was impossible to improve bone-density after the first bone scan but she thought I might be able to slow the decline. That turned out to be less than what has happened. Weight bearing exercise plus Vitamin D3 are the things that I increased and I also started taking alondrate, a bone density medication. The combination is working beautifully for me, although it hasn’t fixed my damaged knee. Keeping my weight down is the best helper for the damaged knee, which is an over-use injury that is not related to bone density. I damaged my cartilage while posting at a trot on a lesson horse for too long. (This is not the same teacher I've had for the past few years.) Losing just a few pounds of weight makes a difference in eliminating knee pain for me. :flowerforyou:

The dogs and I had a nice walk together after our third nap of the day. Here is an interesting question to ask yourself--What would I get up and do on a day when I was really sick? No need to share your answer, but I realized that walking the dogs is what I'd do even if I did nothing else on my to do list. Barbie

She gave my dh and I a gift certificate to Eddie Merlots for our birthdays. DH really wanted to go tomorrow on my birthday, but they were booked. We are going this evening. OMG! It is a dining experience! I dont get excited about food, but I loved this place! It may be our new special occasion place. Too expensive to go very often. Friends took us there for Christmas. SIL is coming with us. It will be fun.
Tomorrow my youngest daughter is fixing me chicken n dumplings for lunch. My favorite meal. Will probably end up at a super bowl party for a short while. My oldest daughter and her family are on their way to Disney as I type.
