I have a full blown cold and cough and I feel miserable.
I did go to my appointment with the gastroenterologist to find out the results of my blood test and see if I needed to undergo that additional test he had mentioned (to check the small intestines). Fortunately, the blood test results came back OK; my iron levels were fine, he said. I don't need to take the iron supplements, any more, and I don't need any further testing. But, he asked me to come back in 4 months' time to do another blood test, just to make sure everything continued to be OK. I was so happy when he said the blood tests were good! It was an answered prayer!
After I came home, I had a scrambled egg for a late lunch. Later, I had a roast beef sandwich (1 slice of bread) for dinner, followed by another slice of bread and peanut butter. Oops! So much for being low carb! I also took two Tylenol tablets because the cold was making me feel achy and ill.
I took the trash cans to the curb, but that was all the housework I did, today. I rested a bit on the sofa and finished knitting the back of my grey sweater. I need to decide on the design for the front. The back has an overall pattern:

Today, I am grateful for:
- The blood test results came out well
- I don't need to do any additional tests
- I don't need to take any more iron supplements
- Phone calls from family (aunt C and cousin P)
- Video chatting with my daughter
I haven't made any plans for tomorrow. I am just going to take it easy and rest; hopefully, I can recover from this cold and cough.
How was your Monday? What are your plans for tomorrow?
