A Nice Day

Thursday, February 16, 2012

It has been another fairly good day.
I ended up with my lowest water yesterday. I got down to 119 oz.That is almost a miracle for me.
Bill usually brings home a fountain drink and had him bring a small 32 oz one. Today I had him go lower to a 16oz one.
Worked on grocery list even tho we won't go for a couple more days. Got tired of having coupons in a box. I had a small photo album that I made into a coupon organizer. I am not an extreme couponer but do use them for things we need. There are only a few things that I use but by putting them in a box I kept missing some.
I was suppose to go back on my wayfarin yesterday but when I checked blood it was still too high. Getting my own machine is very nice. I am so glad my nurse told me medicare would cover it. I wish they made one for potassium.
Still doing good with eating.Scale is going down.
Hope your day was a good one.

Soup day

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

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.

    Glad that you were feeling well enough to make your soup. It's hard to get fluids down, especially if your meds make you thirsty, but you can do it!

    You're doing great with fluid! Can sucking on sugar free candy help with the dry mouth from your meds? I had almost 40 ozs of fluid today and I'm excited about that!!!

I don't even know when the last time I watched BL. I didn't like the new trainers they brought in.

I have to try ground turkey again. We tried chicken sausage and chicken meatballs recently. The sausage wasn't all that good but the meatballs weren't bad.

  Hi Eleni...........
Whenever I read about your soup, it makes me hungry for it. I am going to volunteer tomorrow at the American Girl Warehouse, so I will stop at the grocery store on the way home and get the ingredients.
emoticon on a good job with the calories and the fluids. Maybe the weight loss is already affecting your energy levels. Can't hurt.......
Take care.

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.

And always remember

    emoticon Great to here the scale was down for you!! It's fine that it's fluid. When it comes to drinking, I have the opposite problem. I'm lucky if I drink 32 ounces a day.

I wish you and Bill a wonderful Valentine's Day, what's left of it. He's a wonderful man, married to an extraordinary woman! emoticon

  Hi Eleni........
Happy Valentine's Day to you and Bill. What a sweetheart he is to get you 2 cards and beautiful white roses. Ken gave me a beautiful mixed bouquet yesterday and made a cool card this morning. He was an Art Teacher, so he makes very unique cards.
I was thinking of your problem with dry mouth and wondered if your Dr. or Dentist ever suggested Biotene. I have allergies and tend to do a lot of mouth breathing (without even realizing I am doing it) and my dentist recommended it for dry mouth. It is a mouth rinse and works well. Just a thought.
emoticon on the weight loss. It ALL counts.
Have a good evening.

    Awww, your Bill loves you so Eleni and what's more, he constantly shows it! That is WONDERFUL!

I love roses and have never had white, they are beautiful.

What kind of tree is that? The berries, from the pic, almost look like small blueberries.

Even if the weight you lost was water, that's great! You counted it when it came so count it since it's left you. Weight is weight Eleni, any loss is good.
Have a nice Valentine's Day!

Another OK Day

Monday, February 13, 2012

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

    I love the pictures of Abigail!! The second one is great!

Please be very careful in the kitchen until your blood thickens up. I didn't know salad had that affect. I know the fiber years up my tummy occasionally.

Have a great night and wonderful Valentine's Day with Bill!

  Hi Eleni.........
YOU be VERY careful around anything sharp!!!!! It is good that you are monitoring closely.
You are right.........the second picture of Abigail definitely shows "Attitude". How cute!!!
Elizabeth just left and we won't see her until a week from Friday. She and her Mommy and Daddy leave for Disneyland on Thursday. My DIL's brother lives real close to Disneyland, so they will stay with him. Elizabeth is "Over-the-moon" excited!!!
I'm going to call it a night. I'm tired.
