Watching @POTUS Rose Garden statements on firearm injury. #gunviolence is indeed a #publichealth crisis - and I am so thankful to have a president who recognizes it for what it is. ๐Ÿ”ฅ
"Seconds change your life forever."

100s of 1000s of families across the United States know this story all too well.

And the trauma does not ever go away. It just transmogrifies.

"It takes real courage to turn pain into purpose."

This evening at 4:45pm we got a call from a social worker that works with seniors. She called us in a frenzy asking us for immediate help.

She told us of an emergency so extreme that her voice shook with concern over one of her clients.

#YYC #Calgary #CalgarySeniors #hope
This is what she said:

"Hello Jen, I was hoping I would be able to contact you before I left my work for the day in regards to a rather important situation that came across my desk this afternoon. I hope you have the time to chat?"

I said "Yes of course, how can we help?" #care
She said "We have a senior lady that is struggling so much that she has been going door to door asking for food from others in her complex."

I was quiet and honestly speechless.

I said "Of course we can and we will help. What is it that you need." #FEEDYYC #FoodHamper #helping

So #thankful to have spent the last many days wandering a deserted island, doing what I havenโ€™t been able to do in a good decade. A woman in a peach windbrea...
I am #thankful for my body, which is fragile but resilient. This year, I spent six months mostly bedbound following #COVID19. In the aftermath, I found myself almost as weak as I was after my neurosurgeries. COVID also worsened my #MCAS to a terrifying degree.
In September, I began a (second? third?) long climb of physical therapy and strength training so that I could stand and walk again.

Every year I usually tweet saying Iโ€™m #thankful for those working in hospitals, missing #holiday dinners with their families and loved ones, so those who are sick can get the care they need. The year that just doesnโ€™t cut it for me. It shouldnโ€™t for you either. So pls see ๐Ÿงต
Normally working on holidays like #Thanksgiving in the hospital is not all bad- things are sometimes slow and you can always forage for treats in the break room. People do gather for a special dinner provided by the hospital.
This year holidays are different. Even if hospitals provide holiday dinner to staff as many do, staff are not able to gather otherwise they risk getting sick. healthcare workers are people too. They crave social interaction like anyone. they do have to eat but they will eat alone

#GatedEating Week 14
Cumulative change: -15.5 lbs
Weekly change: -3.5 lbs

Back on track. Extended fasts seem to do the trick. It takes at least 48 hours to see any drop in typical BG levels, and a rise in ketones. With all this fasting, #CGM Daily Patterns graphs are quite flat. Image
#CGM Daily Patterns


During considerable fasting, zero carb some days, 4-8g other days, and deliberate weight loss. ImageImageImage
This week's weigh day "of record" will be Thursday, rather than Friday. It's not because I'm going to (carb) binge on Thanksgiving. I'm long past that habit now. Rather, I usually feast on Fridays. This week I'm shifting forward one day is all to align with family day of thanks.

Sharing a story that's not quite related to those old photos. One day my mom reminded me of the famous story after I was born.

I was born in rare conditions called ๐ธ๐‘› ๐ถ๐‘Ž๐‘ข๐‘™ ๐ต๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘ฆ or ๐‘‰๐‘’๐‘–๐‘™๐‘’๐‘‘ ๐ต๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘กโ„Ž (a condition when the baby comes out still inside
an intact amniotic sac or caul. This might make it look like the newborn is completely gift-wrapped in a soft, jello-like bubble. And this rare thing of beauty happens in less than 1 in 80,000 births), and ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐ถ๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘‘ (y' all can google it).
So I was born in a "bubble" and, because of the ๐‘›๐‘ข๐‘โ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘‘, I was born in a dark-purple color (perhaps because it choked me so I couldn't breathe at all). My mom and my big sis sometimes called me "ungu" or "purple" to tease me. I don't know what inspired them to do

President* Trumpโ€™s attacks on our U.S. Postal Service are deliberate decisions to hurt our veterans and to hurt our seniors who depend on mail for medications and checks. VOTE EARLY. @votevets #TrumpYouLose

Every journalist should ask President* Trump @svdateโ€™s question:

โ€œAfter three and a half years, do you regret all the lying you've done to the American people?"

Does he have any regrets AT ALL?

Pass it on.

Republican Senators who acquitted #TraitorTrump in February are going to go through some things.

Who does #MoscowMitch work for, America or Putin?

So Trump signed off on Russian murders of American soldiers, Chinese concentration camps, extorting Ukraine, betraying Kurds, selling nuclear secrets to Saudis, putting kids in cages, tear gassing U.S. citizens, and politicizing masks during the #COVID19 pandemic? Anything else??

Yesterday a regular patron/customer, former volnteer, & guy who was on the committee to interview me for my job six years ago verbally assaulted me when I asked him and another man to use quiet voices in the library. Among other things he...
... said that hiring me was a huge mistake and he would regret it for the rest of his life. He, and some of the other long-timers, are not happy with the changes Iโ€™m making by employing best practices for libraries, archives, museums, and non-profits...
... This man must have been stewing for some time over the changes Iโ€™ve made, which, again are all normal in the library/archive/museum world. But the long-timers have had many years to do what they want, so the changes are sometimes met with resistance.

It has changed my prayer life, a new stage -again-, and I am so, so, blessed.
I could feel the difference in my prayer life and it gave me strength. That time when I prayed, I heard the Holy Spirit said to me, "Pray for Somalia" a few times (that time I was praying for persecuted Christians and for the Gospel to be preached in some specific unreached
