The Incredible Shrinking Woman

I've always been short. At a towering 5'4", I'm not winning any height contests. It's never really been a problem for me, as short people tend to be "cute."

Lately, however, it has come to my attention that I am no longer 5'4" tall. My doctor has informed me that I am 5'3 /12" tall. How can this be? I'm only 40. Am I shrinking already?

I have noticed that I need a step stool more often now. Or, if that isn't available, Becky to reach the higher cupboards in the kitchen. I can't afford to lose any more height. At some point, I may become bigger around than I am tall!
