When I hear the word perky, I am reminded of a former coworker. He once told me that he initially disliked me because I was too perky and found it impossible to believe that anyone could come to work and be that happy every single day. Of course, he mentioned this after we became good friends. 😉
The severe anemia from my fibroids put a huge dent in my “perkiness factor”. Hard to be happy when you feel weak and faint all of the time. Fortunately, the combination of iron pills and Lupron shots helped to raise my original Dec 2005 hemoglobin level of 6.7 g/dL to 11.2 by May 2006. A normal hemoglobin level is >12. Wow. Almost normal. I like the way that sounds. Almost normal. Think I’ll put it on a T-shirt. Yep, the perkiness has returned.
