We sold our home in a week, but then took six more to close. When it did we were able to visit family too celebrate my mother-in-law's 98th birthday in California. We had a beautiful hotel room and many special time with family. A day at the beach should have been exactly what I needed to shed the stress. But, I spoke too much about my feelings about some of the unpleasant ways our daughter and her husband took advantage of us in recent months. Dh was then a bit mad at me for the rest of the trip. I did spend a few days with my own mother and noticed severe edema in her legs and feet. Got her doctor involved and home health nurse visited to evaluate and draw blood. I reviewed lab results this morning and found one indicator for chronic kidney disease. I know lasix was ordered while I was out there, but it hasn't yet arrived. I may go back out in a few weeks if things get worse. As of now there is a nurse checking on her three times per week. So, my own stress continues to soar. I must learn not to share too much with my in-laws. When will I learn to just keep my mouth shut? Good news? I only gained about one pound in ten days of eating out. Hooray! Hope everyone here is doing great in every way!
