Today I was up by 8:30 which I never do. Then I made my huge pot of low cal soup.
Ended up with 44 cups or 22 bags. Bill helped me bag and that was a big help. I filled bags and he closed the bag. Each bag is only 73 cal. I always add more veggies when I eat it.Some times more broth.
I am still doing good with fluid. I can not get to 64oz. but I am staying below 150 oz. I am probably averaging around 140 oz. Bill brings home a 44 oz fountain drink but I had him get a 32 oz today.
I taped BL last night and skimmed thru it today. I always tape it now as I only like the end anyway.
I was suppose to go back on wayfarin tonight but I checked and it is still too high so I am skipping tonight.
Made a ground turkey meat loaf for supper. Turned out good. I have a small piece left for a snack later.
I am doing ok with eating. I have a goal I want to get to by my birthday so we will see. Then I will put my tracker back up.
Our warm weather was back today.Had to turn AC back on.
ok I guess that's it for now. Hope you had a good day.
Have some pics to share and little news
My scale has come down quite a bit.But I am sure most of it is fluid. I am doing ok with cutting back on drinking too much.I will never get as low as he wants but I have cut my day time in half.Actually more than half. By this time of day I would have been thru probably 3 times more than I have. It is so hard as I get so thirsty from meds.
Last week I posted a picture of neighbors big tree that was full of blossoms.Now it also has some kind of berries. Nether of us had ever noticed the berries before.
And Bill surprised me yesterday with white roses and a card.One of roses fell off so he put it in a bowl of water and set it on desk.Then this morning he had another card waiting for me. Like I always say.He is too good to me.
I made him a card this morning with different clip art pictures.
I do have some photo's of Abigail but will have to share tomorrow. I am in living room and too lazy to go to other computer.MMM maybe I can get one. Ok I did get my 2 favorites. The one looks like she is saying"I just did something and I'm not telling" What a little stinker.
Her mother got a new camera and is using it big time.
Today was an ok day. Got several things done again.Not bad when I normally do nothing. I even got a load of clothes done so Bill wouldn't have to do it.
I did check my blood and it was high which means it is way too thin. I am so glad I have a machine at home.It helps a lot. We knew the pills for yeast could cause blood to thin.That is why I had to check it. I will recheck on friday.I do not want to get cut for sure til I get number down.
I have also ate more salads and that affects blood too.
On a better note the scale was down. But will see if it is real loss or fluid. I am eating less but trying to cut back on drinking.Reducing water intake is as hard as reducing food if not more so.
Have done well in that area also so far tonight.
Well I have a stack of cards I want to get ready to mail for this month and next. Then they will be ready to mail when needed.
Hope you had a good day
Didn't do anything exciting but did complete a few projects.
First I finished up my meds. This time I took 5 days by doing just a little each night. One night was just getting all the bags ready.Then each night made up 3 weeks of one pill taking.I take pills 4 times a day. I am amazed I don't have an ulcer.Today put them all together on one huge safety pin for each week. Then straighten out box I keep pill bottles in.
Next was spices. I had Bill bring all my spices to my card table. My 2 everyday swivels and my other turn tables of extra spices. It is time to make my special italian spice mix that I use on almost anything. First I made sure every day jars were full and reorganized them a little different.Meanwhile having my list I need for spices so I can see what I have and what I need. I ended up needing 4 spices which isn't bad. I always have trouble finding a spice called savory. My grand daughter Felicia works at publix and said she can get it for me.
And speaking of Felicia she just called me a few minutes ago to tell me Abigail took her first step without falling down. Felicia was so excited. I told her to get some new running shoes as she is going to need them.She also bought herself a new camera so facebook will be full of pics for me to choose from.
We had turkey burgers tonight.No bread. Bill's was just plain burger but I stuffed mine. Made two thin burgers and put some shredded cheese and frozen spinach on one and topped with 2nd thin burger. Sealed the edges.When Bill's got done I took his out and put mine in oven for 10 minutes.
It was good.Next time maybe I will add some mushrooms.
I have started tracking my water.Will need to do it for several days to get an average. I am still drinking a lot but less than I was.It isn't easy to cut back as I am usually drinking fluids all day and even during the night. Meds make mouth so dry during the day and my full face c-pac really dries my mouth so I keep a drink by bed.
Angel is getting good at the couponing.But the stuff I buy doesn't have as many coupons. She did really good today but she didn't have anything that would be called healthy. I did learn that the stores really take coupons from other stores.Just have to check stores to see what they will take.
Bill was laughing at my card table.It has become my desk / work station. It gives me room to spread out. If anyone is coming to house I can take it down.
I guess that is it
Oh Smartie pants Bill has lost 8#. His biggest weakness is fries and ice cream. He has cut back on potatoes but was just eating ice cream.. He never eats large amounts of anything. He has so much will power
Hope you had a good weekend. It did not get as cold as it was suppose to but heat did come on often.By Wed we will be back in high 70's.
