Once again I slept much better. Hopefully it will continue.
No drama today.Altho Angel did call me to let me know her and a friend were mugged Friday night. She wasn't hurt but lost her purse. Her friend did get knocked down.
Bill has been a busy bee today. I made the grocery list and he got groceries by himself. Later in afternoon he potted some plants and moved two plumarias to a different place. The plumarias he put in the ground. We have 2 others in ground and they are doing ok.
Then he grilled some steaks.
ME. i put groceries up etc and that is about it.

Hope you had a great weekend

  Hi Eleni.........
I am very happy to hear that you are emoticon better.

I am sorry to hear that Angel and her friend were mugged, but I wish that she hadn't felt the need to share it with you. She really needs to take seriously the fact that her Mom just doesn't need the stress.

It is so windy here today that I may have to put my gardening on hold till it calms down a bit.

Have a good day.
Patti

    I'm glad you had no drama, but it seems as if getting mugged does qualify - at least by association. I assume the police can't do anything about it. Sorry.

Today has been one of my better days. I slept the best last night than I have in a long time.
Got up very early for me and got several things done. Even did some laundry. Clean the kitchen up which was a mess and even cleaned top of stove good. Got meds ordered and new scripts ready to mail. Also got both of Roxy's bed covers washed and dried and back on her beds.By 10:30 I was ready for mini nap. I was almost asleep when Roxy decided she heard something she didn't like and started barking. She doesn't bark often but when she does she is loud. So I got up.My sister Joanne and my neice Debbie came by for a visit.Deb brought me a hibiscus plant for the garden.
Bill is cooking tonight so he is on way to Mr Souvlakis to pick up supper.He is an expert take out cook. emoticon
The fluid seems to be better in my lungs but feet are still swollen. I have taken extra diuretic for 3 days now.He first told me to do it for 4 days but then he just said get rid of it. But I do feel a little better.
Here are some pics I took today. The feel good corner looks strange without bamboo tree. Several plants are reblooming. And the blue jay loves the flowers pots.And the water bird was a few houses over
Then last is my grandsons and Abigail that I got off of facebook









Ok Hope you are enjoying your weekend

    I envy you the beautiful garden! With the summer we had, everything died and I haven't replaced yet. You have such a lovely yard, I know you enjoy it. And of course, the kids are adorable!!! Always love your pictures.
Hope each day gets better for you!

  Hi Eleni.......
I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better and have had a good night's sleep. Sleeping good is our best restorative time and I am glad to hear that it has helped you. Have you ever tried support wraps or stockings for your ankles?

I love your line about Bill being "an expert take-out cook". The "Feel Good" area looks great as do your other blooms. I have to go out and do some thinning in my front garden. If you lived closer, you could make a real haul as I have many plants that need to go to good homes.

Loved your Grand-kid pictures.......red is definitely Abigail's color. When I saw the picture of the Heron on the roof, all I could think of was that as beautiful as they are, I am glad that they don't land on our roofs here.......for obvious reasons.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Today has been better.
I did sleep better last night and the fluid is a little better. It will take a few days to get rid of most of water. But I can breathe better.
Rebekah brought Abigail by for a short visit and she cried everytime she got near me.I think she was just tired and maybe even had a little tummy ache. But it was nice of Rebekah to bring her by.
Brianna came by and changed the bed covers. I had to have blood work done so we all went to lunch afterwards.
Bill just helped plant the seeds Patti sent me.( Thanks again Patti)
I also got the manardo plants I ordered 6 months ago. He put three of them in a pot. have more to pot when he gets some more potting soil.
No drama from kids but they will be quiet for awhile. Told one today that if I was having a bad day I would not answer phone if she called. She was fine with it.
Ok Hope you had a good day.

    I'm glad you are feeling better, and hope you continue to get better. Not answering the phone is one way to avoid distractions - but we came up with one that's even better. We did away with the land line (modem connection) and have two cell phones. If you turn them off, they don't ring, but people can leave you messages. If you turn them on, people don't call to ask for donations, offer free information, because they're not really selling you anything, help you with political information, etc. It has been very quiet here this week - only one phone call from the BW's doctor, reminding her of an appointment on Monday. Since we had both cell phones for years, it doesn't cost anything extra, and we now don't have a phone bill.

    It's always a good day when the kids are quiet and in a good place. My son just got a promotion and my daughter is up in the mountains with her beau...so momma's happy, too! Tyler started his meds last week for ADHD and he seems a little calmer. He's much easier to manage now. Both of Jen's boys have been diagnosed with it. It was in the 50's this morning..back in the 80's this afternoon. Can't wait for that first shiver! My eating has not been so good, but I'm trying not to beat myself up too much. I'm still getting up...so there's always the chance that I'll get it right today! Glad to hear some of that fluid is coming off. Pamper yourself, you need it right now. I know Bill takes good care of his Baby. emoticon(I love this happy witch, she has my body shape!)

  Hi Eleni........
Glad to hear the fluid situation is better. You are more than welcome re: the seeds. There are many more where they came from if you need them (or if the rest of the state of Florida needs them).
Have a relaxing weekend and take care of YOU.

    Ohhhh my sweet Eleni!

It was so good to see you on the video...but I wish it would have been happier subject matter. You MUST take care of yourself...you just MUST.

I know...kid stress if the deepest stress that you can deal with. You love your kids and you can't help but worry about them. You might have to ask your sweet Bill to be the buffer until you can get yourself back into better shape.

Don't EVEN think about anything else that will stress you out!

We all love you to the moon and back and want you to be calm and happy!

Love, love, LOVE!

  Hi Eleni........
First of all........I Love YOU!!! I wish that I lived closer so that I could give you a big hug and help you out when you need me........but I don't, so we will communicate through SP and also through phone calls. It sounds like you have a wonderful Doctor. Would it be possible for him to either write a letter or record on a DVD the crucial information that he gave to you at your appointment? If the kids heard what he has to say, maybe they would understand just how important their cooperation is to your health. Did your Dr. suggest ways to de-stress like deep breathing, or listening to relaxing music, or doing things that help YOU to relax like your photography or your drawing or reading? Whatever works for you is what you should do. Forget about the weight loss. When you are more relaxed, things will fall into place in other areas too and weight loss may be a part of it or it may not be. The most IMPORTANT thing is how your heart is doing and how controlled the fluid is.
I am praying for you my friend. YOU are not alone!!!

    WOW, the best Cardiologist in the country! How lucky as many people don't have health insurance. Glad all is working out for you.
Do read "WHY WE GET FAT AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT" by Gary Taubes as it explains so much about Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance for those of us over 40. I got a copy at the library.

I like the ZEN saying about worry: There is no need to worry about something you can do somethinga about, and there is no need to worry about something that you can do nothing about.

    Take a deep breath and relax because we are not going anywhere either. Your stuck with us like it or not.
As I look back on my dying days I know it was stress that was killing me along with depression.
We can only do so much and we both know that.
We are so much alike in our beliefs and our ways I feel we should have been sisters. You mean the world to me and I will do anything in my power to help you get your health under control.
I know you try to respond to all of the comments on your blogs, the first thing you can do is stop!!!
We all know you read the comments and that is good enough for us, so stop putting pressure on yourself to respond to us, we understand and we know that would help with the stress of just letting go a little bit and the same with the kids let them go a little bit they will understand.
I had to do that with my kids it can be a hard step to take but you know your health is so important to keep under control so you can be here with us and the kids for many more years.

So take that deep breath and relax, try and get a good nights sleep.
Hugs, Sandy

    I am so glad you are receiving such good care, and from such a competent and compassionate doctor. I hope you are able to get all the water out, and reduce your stress.

I really like Words with Friends, also. I recently discovered Hanging with Friends, and enjoy that one very much, too.

    Eleni, since you like to read there are so many good books on ways to live stress free. . .Maybe it's a stupid idea--not really sure but I've learned so much just reading good books on different subjects. I'm also a worrier and one of my main stresses is my kids as even though they're grown 2 of them really still depend on me. . .Where ole where are the Golden years? I'm so happy you have a great Dr. and husband--both of them are the best ones to support & help you--and all of us too. We also want you around for a very long time.

Love & Hugs,

Jill

Hello and how are you! I'm sending encourgagement and motivators, you motivate us all the time, today it's your turn. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon My daughter-in-law had foot surgery today. She has recently lost over 100 lbs. but when she was bigger, she put alot of stress on tendons in her feet and joints. She's only 27, she's out of surgery but now can't put any weight on foot for 4-6 wks. I'm going to help out next week with meals etc. It always seems to be something doesn't it? Well, take care of yourself and take it easy.

love,
Margaret
