Had my blood test today and my doctor rang about 6.15pm to say that my pottasium as gone high, needed to go up there and get a prescription so we can get this level down. As I needed to start this tonight. Of course when I went down to the chemist they did not have this, they rang up the only other one that was opened at that time and they did not have it either. So I ended up going up the hospital and sat there for 3 hours, waiting to get the powder. I have now had my first dose and another tomorrow morning, then I have to have another blood test straight away.
Funny thing my creatinine and urea levels have improved again.
So that is an interesting blood test, not sure about any of the other levels.
Not much else to report but I am going to bed.

Hi everyone, thank you for all your kind words you gave me on my last blog. They were absolutely amazing and so supportive.
I have had a absolutely lovely weekend with the grandchildren, so tired now LOL.
It as incredible how much more energy I have and when I feel tired now I know that I have earnt it. It is notfeeling tired from doing nothing now. I have come a long way.
Everything else is going really well. Just it is so cold here, I think winter came a week early.
Thank you for all the encouraging words that I receive, they are truly great and I appreciate them all.

Had a lovely quite weekend. Basically over my flu now at least I am not wheezing anymore.
I need to start doing more exercises again, I am walking heaps because I can do that in short bursts. Back to exercises tomorrow afternoon, I have missed this heaps.
Food is going good, sorted out some of the problems that I was having with the protein, carbs and sodium. Learnt some more things fromt he dietitian that I see about the food that I am eating, so that has helped.
Ended up putting on 1 kg again because of the lack of strength and cardio exercies.
One thing I noticed while i had this flu is that I didn't eat too much before I would eat whatever I could get my hands on. Now I had to tell myself to eat my meals. I have also noticed that I am not emotionally eating anymore either.
I have come a long way from when I first started on this journey.
Steps again for the week was just over 60,000 steps, a week ago when I was sick was just 30,000 steps. so proud of me. I have come a long way.
I have made lots of little changes, such as when I am out having a meal now I will divide the chips in half and only eat half of them. The other day I asked for half the cheese on the meal i decided to have. So half the fat. i really don't care now if I eat the whole meal or not now, I can leave some and not feel guilty.
I will have meatless meals now, never thought I could give up some of the meat.
I have been told that I still have to eat meat everyday but I have cut it down.
I am going okay, blood test in about 1 week time so that will tell if I have been a good girl. LOL.
bye for now.

I had a perfect weekend with the grandchildren. Took them to have a look at a circus to show them the animals that was in town, unfortunately there are not many animals now. Just 3 camels, 3 Alpacas, 2 cows, geese and was suposed to be horses but could not find them. Then we went to the playground to play, bought their Mother a present so they could give it to her when they went home.
Then today my son came to see me and we ended up going out for lunch for Mother's Day. Very nice and he paid for this, we also went shopping, so this was also a nice day.
Hope everyone had a nice day for their Mother's Day.
Now it is back to putting me first again.
