Thankfully the gout is so much better today. Hopefully it will be gone by tomorrow. Gout comes on suddenly and can lasts for days or longer. I have found that heat helps. I take 2 meds for it but still get it from time to time. I seem to always get it in unusual places. I am just glad the pain has eased up.
Brianna is suppose to come spend some time with me and she told her Mom that if Grandma was feeling bad she wanted to wait.She said I get grumpy.Who. Me
Dealing with excess fluid but that happens at least once or twice a week.
I go next thursday night for a sleep study to see if I need more than just O2. Oops.I think I already told you that. Senior moment
Today was errand day but kept it to a minimun.Had our weekly lunch.We have been getting a 1 1/2 slices of pizza and a cup of soup.Only got 1 slice and soup. Then we picked up some DVD's for the weekend.
Then the grocery store. I found some new melons to try. One tastes like a cantaloupe but other was tasteless..I have pictures to share but have to wait til after Monday. I got big bag of green beans and some chinese green beans. I will probably steam them tomorrow.I have found I like fresh cooked green beans at any time.Then I spent 15 minutes looking for a new salad dressing to try. I made another batch of my own but I wanted to see what I could find.I found a low cal ceasar and a low fat greek. looks like the greek is one I will use. I threw mine away as it just wasn't good. I taste tested each one with some cauliflower when I got home.
Buying the groceries is the easiest part.It takes me a long time to get stuff ready for fridge. I got the cauliflower,broccoli,celery.melon and grapes all cleaned and bagged for easy use.Takes time now but so much easier the rest of the week. I still have the meat to redo.I will make some chip snack bags later. The chips get locked up and I have to have Bill get them.So no pigging out on them after he goes to bed.
My weight is up but it is mostly fluid.I forgot to weigh this morning before I got dressed so I will use my weight tomorrow.Maybe the fluid will be down.Took extra meds today.
Bil has found someone to mow the yard who will bag grass.It looks great. The non bagged mowed grass seemed to be messing up the new grass. So Bill is happy.
Well I still have posts from yesterday to get to.I am way behind. But that's nothing new.
I did good with calories yesterday and am in good shape as of right now.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
