HELLO LADIES!

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Hello. Ladies!

To bring you up to date! I have been 'lazy' since my ER visit.

I had my appt. with my GP yesterday morning. She was shocked. My bp has gone up remarkably since January. Why we don't know. Whether something has triggered it or what! Next tues. I'll have a renal utersound, and another test to maybe determine the source.

She increased my bp med. and put me on another med to lower it. That med can make me dizzy and sleepy. So I have not been 'pushing' myself. I have plenty of no-brainer things I can do around here.

Time to check my bp, feed the 'furry kids' and feed myself my oatmeal.

Catch you all later.

Blessings,
Janet

    Take care and look after yourself. Hopefully the new med will help to bring your blood pressure down.

QUESTIONS---QUESTIONS---Questions

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Good morning, Ladies!

Just sitting here looking out my patio door. First, its sunny then cloudy! We are to possibility get more rain and t-s.. Whatever!

While in the ER yesterday, I had a woman dr.. She told me that if you have Fibro and at a later date you are told you have R.A.;M.S.;or Lupus you have been diagnosed wrong in the first place, you didn't have Fibro. at all! Has anyone else been told that? That was new to me. I guess you learn something new everyday!

But, I would think that if with the high B.P. and Pulse if it were white coat sydrome it would be gone. Also, if it had been stress from the funeral dinners, that should have corrected itself.But, it's still here.

But, since nothing was found I was okay to go home with high B.P. and Pulse.

Took my B.P. at 8:45 a.m. today. It was 224/124. Pulse 124. What gives?

Blessings,
Janet

    It seems high to me as well. Be on the safe side and get your BP re-checked by the doctor or other health care professional. Wishing you all the best.

    I agree with the others on that blood pressure reading. See your Doc. Maybe you ought to have your BP machine checked. Also, I have gone to the fire station and had mine checked!
And..if you are an AARP member, they have nurses on duty around the clock. You could call and ask her advice. Please take care of yourself.

    Geez, that is dangerously high. Do you have anything around the house you can take to lower it such as xanax, klonopin. Etc. I can lower mine some by laying down and practicing deep breathing. Hope you have already called an advice nurse or seen another doctor by now. Praying for an answer and the right treatment.

PS: I thought fibro was a set of symptoms kind of like CFS or autism, not an actual disease. Can't you have fibro caused by other things such as lymes, mono etc?

    Your blood pressure is extremely high! I would encourage you to seek immediate evaluation. I would also consider a second opinion from another physcian you have confidence. There may be underlying problems, but the immediate concern is to get the blood pressure down, and look into appropriate treatment options.

    Those readings are awfully high. Were they high like that when you left the ER? If so I am surprised they released you. Those are way too high if you ask me. I will keep you in prayer. I would get a second opinion.

    Ditto on that! Do check back with the doctor! Stress can hang around for a long time after an event, but those readings are high.

BACK HOME!

Friday, May 13, 2011

This is the first time I have blogged x2 in one day. I got home about two hours ago. First, every few years ) go through this. I get very ill but go through all kinds of tests. Yet they can never pinpoint what's wrong. They always assure me they have no doubt that there is something wrong, but, no test they have finds it. Several years ago, they told me that if I were to have a heart attack, I may never be aware of it. I could be walking across the floor and just drop! That's comfortting isn't it! I always say I'm not going back to the hospital again. Today I was to go to Christines. I'll go out next weekend. I was really concerned this morning. It somehow seemed different.

Blessings,
Janet

    I hope you start feeling better. I hate it when you don't feel good and they can't find anything wrong with you.

THE DAY AFTER!

Thursday, May 12, 2011

First of all ladies, I want to thank everyone for their prayers and helpful tips. I was pleastantly surprised, they both went well. I couldn't have done it on my own. I had 5 terrific committee members and two volunteers daily. All I had to do was ask, and, they carried through. Or, they would ask me what I wanted them to do next, and, they carried through! Till yesterday was over, we were all dragging. We were on our feet, in a hot and humid kitchen. Tuesday, from 9:30 a.m.---3:30 p.m.. Yesterday, from 9:30 a.m.---4:45 p.m.. I wonder when the Fibro and CFS will hit. Looking at my schedule, I don't have a 'free' day till aweek from today! So, more Prayers are needed.

777Grace gave me a number of ideas which I used aome and will be using more next time. However, I thought this might be a place for you ladies tell us what you have found that works. I would also like to twick our menu if I can get approvial from our Pastoral staff.

So, ladies come on----

I better get on with my to-do list for the day.

Blessings,
Janet
