I am happy to say I stay on c-pap for 6 hours.My longest time yet. I am sleeping better than I have in years but can't see results yet. maybe once I adjust to new med it may get better.
I just found out the medtronic care link machine is suppose to be on all the time.It is a newer one. When they checked my ICD they found out mine was off anyway. She turned it on and told me my box at home should be on. It takes a phone line and the one in our room hasn't been used in forever. Bill can't get the cord plugged in.He is working on it now. Can't get it to work.Will call phone company in morning
I have done great with eating today.Hope it lasts til bedtime.
I made up some cereal packs this morning.I put 1/2 cup of raisin bran and 1/2 cup of cherrios in each.145 cal.Now with fat free milk and small piece of banana I can have a 205 cal breakfast.
We had grilled porkchops and grilled and steamed veggies. Fresh green beans and kale steamed. fresh squash,brocolli,cauliflower,carrots and a few potatoes. I had some sweet potato slices in there but somehow I burnt them.
I ventured away from the safety of my recliner more today.Spent much more time in kitchen. Still staying away from computer room tho unless Bill is in there with me.I did go out there to get the pics I took of my big orchid and new little cactus. The orchid is really getting a lot of buds
I am back working on some of my daily goals
1. Walk to back bedroom and back 8 times. Done
2.No exercising til I see doc tomorrow
3.Lift weight 2 sets of 12. will do this in a minute---- done
4.eat slower. --- used timer today
5. Attempt to stay in calorie range or at least not go over by much.But mainly aim to be in the range So far I am looking good for today
6. To reduce salt usage. ongoing still very happy with this
ok I think that is it. Hope you are having a good day. Watching crazy Jeff on Flipping out
Another quiet day.watched Tv and got some veggies bagged. Also steamed a whole bag of Kale and have a bag of green beans ready to cook tomorrow.
My supper last night turned out real good. It was just a form of pot pie but simple to make. I mixed canned cooked chicken with cream of mushroom soup and big slices of potatoes and some frozen mixed veggies. Once potatoes were cooked I sprinkled some mashed up cheez its and tostidoes that i had in a baggie for a crust.It turned out really good and was easy to make.
Did watch some tennis and an old jack nicholson movie. Bill decide I was getting out of house no matter what. so I agreed to go out for supper. Big mistake. I ate way too much and it wasn't even that good.
I am now watching Little people Big world.This is last season for it.It will be interesting to see if they stay married.
The Closer will be on in a few minutes.That is one Bill and I both like.He hates my little people LOL
I am sleeping much better with c-pap but as I said I haven't seen any benefits yet. Now my groin has starting hurting again.I must have pulled a muscle again.The last time it took months for it to stop hurting.It seems like I am always hurting somewhere. Oh well it could be worse. I am no longer glued to recliner but still staying out of back room.
Ok Closer is coming on and I am going to kick back and watch it.Hope you all had a great day
I want to thank all of you for your prayers, Your comments on my posts and spark page and goodies mean so much to me.Please do not get offended if I don't respond to each one.I am very blessed to have many many spark friends and I will try to keep up with your postings on your pages. But I won't be responding to all the comments I get directly but do know it is so wonderful to read them.
I am doing ok.No more incidents so that is good. Don't feel so great but I am taking a strong dose of a new med. I am also doing better with c=pap.In fact I am sleeping better than I have in a long time. Once I get this other problem under control I should see the benefits of c-pap. Bill is doing great with his.I knew he would. But he isn't feeling any better yet either.
Well I do have a lot of blogs to look at.
I am making one of my concoctions for supper.I thought of it as I was waking from short nap.
It like a pot pie but no crusts and big pieces of potatoes. Will let you know if it is eatable or if Bill heads to out to get supper
Bill and I have been talking and I am not going to make myself an invalid because I might faint. So I went to grocery store as usual. Bill did the driving but I went my way in store and he went his. I even took care of putting stuff away in fridge. Did get too much snack stuff but bagged it all up and Bill has it hidden.I still have tons of fruit and veggies to bag but will do that tomorrow. I will continue to take good care of myself but not going to stay superglued to recliner. Will just spend a lot of time in it. . I have to admit I am still a little gunshy of back room. I think I will stay out of there for awhile
When we came home this wild moth was on wall next to door
We are both doing better with c-paps.Bill is doing much better than me.The chin straps worked.(I borrowed his extra til mine comes) I am sleeping much better but not feeling better yet. Starting a new med always takes time to get use to and it makes me feel a little funny.
We got some tapes from blockbusters.We just put on The Back-up Plan. So far it looks funny
Ok Hope you all having a good weekend
My daughter Angel told me I better superglue myself to recliner.She wanted to change her weekend plans and I made her go.She is a bit of worrywart.The other kids don't even know I am having a problem. She told me this morning I was allowed to go to potty if I really had to.Too funny.She was here a couple of years ago when I fell by accident in kitchen and it scared her so this incident really upset her.
Thank you so much for comments,goodies,prayers etc.It does mean a lot. The new med should keep me from passing out like that. i am a little nervous about it happening again but I am staying close to soft landings til med is in my system good. I needed to use the other computer for a minute and made Bill go out there and sit next to me. I wanted to get some pictures he took today on a flash drive so i could post them with this laptop.
We had an ongoing contest going with our c-paps providers.We have found that we can breathe thru our mouths and both started doing it when we fall asleep.It doesn't register on machine plus it wakes you up.So we both called to see about chin straps.Then we bet on whose supply place would get it here first.He won.His came in a couple of hours and they are mailing mine.But they dropped him off 3 different ones so I will use one of his tonight.
Oh not only am I taking a new heart med I get to take 2 more potassium pills.So now I get to take 18 horse pills a day. I must have a stomach of iron .That makes about 48 pills a day not counting Advil I take. i think Bill takes 4.
Here are some pictures Bill took for me today.I gave him my #3 camera to keep in his van.I did trim them some but he did a good job.
