Rosie, so sorry about your bp, Try not to get upset that doesn't help the bp.
Hubbys appointment was ok they up the battery power to his brain and hopefully he won't need as much medication. So far so good, he missed the 2 am and 5 am hope this works.
The drive in was awful, slow, took two and one quarter hours, it is 45 miles away, why do they call it rush hour? We left at 6:45 am and got there at 9. Took 45 min to go home at 10:45. Everyone was at work. lol
Did they take your bp more than once? Every once in a while I will have high bp and they will take it 2 or three times. It always goes down.
Anyway thinking of you today, raining here and will rain all week, sigh

Rosie, so sorry about your knee. I hope they can give you something that works. I can't sit either,kind of sad, lol.
I have to take hubby to the doctor today and it is a two hour trip, not looking forward to that and he can have any medication since last night. Should be a trip to remember.
Good luck with your doctor appointment.
Carol who will say a prayer for you.

Carol, I know, I couldn't believe it either. I see my NP tomorrow, it is mostly to have my bp checked and I need a new prescription, and will most likely get orders for another blood draw, (blood work) and I am seriously thinking about asking about a pain med for my arthritis especially my knee, to see if that will help. I take Tylenol Arthritis, which helps some, but, looking to see if something else could help when I get up from sitting 15 minutes or more, when I put weight or pressure on my knee to get up and walk, exercise for it does not always help

Well Rosie, I can't imagine any doctor telling someone that they should up their salt. There must be a reason why she wants you to have more salt. It is good that you drain and rinse the canned veggies. I have got to the point where I will not eat anything canned, I had that stroke 4.5 years ago and do not want another one! I was lucky and will not push my luck! lol
Have a great day Rosie and Joy,
Carol

Wel, I bought some canned food last night, some greens, and yes, I know, I have to watch my sodium, too, but, one time I was told by the NP's nurse that she wanted me to up my sodium intake and add some to my food diet, I'm like What, I take a med for blood pressure, duh!!. It was after having a blood test, which she usually wants me to have every 6 months, I see her thix Monday, I dread going a always, but, lol

I can drain the canned food, and rinse it with water

Rosie, another thing is no canned food to much sodium, I have to watch my sodium and canned food is off the chart!
I like the iceburg lettuce or Boston lettuce.
Anyway, have a great rest of the day,

Thanks carol, just trying to get some other ideas, I like the skinny girl, dressing, too, since I came across it, one thing I believe it is lower in sodium than most dressings. My dd says romain lettuce is better than the iceberg head lettuce. I have always had the iceburg lettuce as a kid growing up and etc.

Rosie, I try not to eat any processed food. I eat a ton of vegetables, oatmeal for breakfast with fruit, a salad with chicken at lunch and for dinner a baked potato with salsa, no butter etc.
I eat a lot of chicken I cook up tenders or breast ahead of time and then I have them ready.
Hubby eats processed food, doesn't like anything else. sigh
So I make two meals, one for him and one for me
When I make a salad I use lettuce, tomatoes, diced onions and anything else I can find. My one downfall is skinny girl dressing, very low calorie.
I am also walking 10,000 steps a day, that is about 4.5 miles a day. Walking is better for me because it is low impact but I need the impact because of bone density.
Hope this helps,
Carol who gets lots of good recipies on spark people!

Joy,
Good to hear from you! Happy that things are pretty good. My hubby takes a sleeping pill, 1.2 of a 10 m ambian. Works great, sleeps like a baby! I need my sleep, i get crabby if I am up to much at night.
Is your hubby on meirpex or requip, either of those will make him out of his head. If he is talk to the doctor. Mine can't take them. Just sinemet every two and a half hours.
Good for the lb. lost. I have been watching what I eat and walking everyday. Try to get 10,000 steps and make it most days. The dog loves to walk so I take her in the morning and do the treadmill in the afternoon.
I have been working in the yard too. Guess snow is not so bad. lol
Hang in there and have a great day, keep laughing,
Carol

Have a good two days off, happy you had a good day today!
Cold this morning we have a frost, i covered the few plants I put in, some herbs, covered them with plastic cups. Worked out good didn't want them to get cold. I am dying to put in flowers and vegetables but I will have to wait, I may do some hardy things. I want tomatoes but it is much to early.
Working in the yard today.
Have a great day Rosie and Joy.

Happy you got out today.
Sometimes I take him out with me other times I leave him alone. It depends on how he is doing. He has a life alert thing and can let someone know if he needs help. I always have my phone with me so they can call me.
Caregiving is hard work!
Have a great day at work Rosie!

Yikes Joy, Sorry you and hubby had to go through all that. How is his nose? and the fridge? Good the cathater is working. Saves lots of time.
My hubby went to the bathroom the other night to get ready for bed, I could hear him walking toe little steps to get to his room and then a big thud, he pulled up his depends and didn't pull up his pants, says he forgot. He was not injured. I laughed so hard, then I apoligized to him. It is a good thing I can laugh. Hubby takes sleeping pills Joy, otherwise he would be up off and on all night.
I mowed the lawn yesterday and it looks nice. Happy that is done for a week. Have to work on the beds. We are going to have rain today or tomorrow.
Have a great day Rosie and Joy!

Good Morning Rosie,
Raining here, just a little, sprinkles here and there. The ground was wet when I got up to let the dogs out. The birds start singing at 4:30 am, woke me up I went back to bed for a half hour. I like to sleep with the window open a little. Maybe I will have to rethink that. lol
Happy things are back to normal. Have a great day at work.
Big hug

Carol and Joy, this usually happens at least once a year, every year, never wore masks b4 and I never got suck. A long time ago there was a nurse here, and we had the same thing happen, I didn't say anything to this nurse, and decided I would wear a mask, well, she looked at me and said, that mask isn't going to help you, because if you are going to get it, you get it anyway, regardless of wearing a mask, I have not gotten it. I know that does not mean that I won't get it..... I have worked here for over 28 years.

I think we are to have a nice day, or at least I sure hope so. Have a good d ay if you can

Rosie, sounds like there is something going around at the nh. Hope you don't get sick! Stay healthy. Good thing you are wearing masks etc. Sounds like they have it under control. Enjoy your time off.
Joy, happy your days are good. The confusion comes from the medication and it is hard to deal with. No falls here for one day! I am sorry you are not going to TOPS state SRD. Maybe it would be good for your daughter to stay. It would be good for you to get out!
I need a vacation but don't think I will get one anytime soon.
Yes, see a elder attorney, they are your best source of information, you will be happy if you do!
Have a great day,

Thanks Carol, at work all residents are confined to their rooms, due to some being sick, so they are all being fed their meals in their rooms, which makes it a bit difficult in cleaning, there's breakfast and lunch that we have to deal with, we also have to wear masks all day. This has been going on since last Friday, after breakfast, But, I am not suppose to have to work the next two days, and our census is really low.

I decided to go to Gaylord, this morning (30 mi. north of here) my Heaven my granddaughter asked me if I was going to the store, I told her I actually thought of going to Gaylord, so she asked me if she could go with me, then Linda, my daughter wanted to go, so that's where we went, went to a few stores, but it took like all day...... I really wanted to call a friend from high school while up there, and visit her for a bit, but, I'll need to take them up to Gaylord to the dentist next Monday, so, maybe I'll have time to do that then.

Joy so good to hear from you. I worry about you sometimes. It is not easy, we don't go out to eat much for the same reason as you. Went out for Mothers day and I made hubby take his walker, he was not happy. It was a buffet so we looked at food and I got him seated then got him his food. Then went for mine.
Don't worry about the cost of a nursing home if he has to go medicare will pay, they can not take your house or car. We saw a elder lawyer here in NH. We can keep 100,000 dollars, one car and house, they can not touch it. I am keeping him home as long as I can but when he has to go he has to go.
Can you get help, someone to come in a few days a week. Sounds like you need a rest. Talk to your doctor and ask him to recommend something. Perhaps a social worker could help. Look up 211 and your state they have lots of things that might be available.
Love the cathater saves lots of work. Happy it works for you.
Keep up the good work and I am thinking of you. Oh, mine has broken his hand and ribs over the last year waiting for the hip. I nag him about his walker but it doesn't do any good.
Praying for you and your Family,
Carol who needs a good whine once in a while,

Guess thigs are pretty good here. Wentlast Sun. to daus. Her birthday. Hubby done pretty good. He went to churc today. First time out of house since last Sun. He fell 2 times this morning. Won't listen. I can tell when he is out of his head. I guess that is what u call it. He gets up and starts looking and pickingup ever thing and won'tlisten. Had a good afternoon.
Sometie he leaves cathater on all night, It sure helps. Carol, I am so afraidhe will break something. This sounds awful but I just realized I can't hardly put him on nursing home. Can't hardly afford it. I am not ready anyway. Dau called Fri and I was so tired and upset with him. She said he needed to go. I amnot even ready to talk about it.
Rosie, happy u got extra hours. We are making it ok me not working but I miss it. He has a hard time eating now so hate to go out to eat. So messy. Sorry about m whining God bless, joy

Right now it is raining but who knows what the afternoon holds.

Hope you are all doing ok.

Yikes Rosie, that is the problem with spring snow, they don't want to plow! Think it will melt in a day so why bother.
We are getting rain today, that is a good thing, I hope the snow thing is over for you and me. I don't think Joy has to worry about snow.
Joy we miss you!

Sis is close to 80 she is about 79, I have another sis, (step) who is just younger, at 76 and me at 73, Had a brother (step), who would have been 74, but he was killed in a single motorcycle accident back in 1970-71. It was believed to be a put up job by someone,

If it ever gets to be nice enough, I may try and go for a walk.

Wow Rosie, that is so good. My hubby doesn't shake anymore because of his surgery and could not live alone. He lost his license last year because he was in so many accidents. It is wonderful that she can manage on her own.
Well we are having snow tomorrow, was 70 yesterday and the day before. What a difference.
Have a wonderful day Rosie.

My sister, (step) has Parkinson's, she has had it for some time, that is why she shakes, but, she is living by herself, and drives her car. She is by herself, now, since her one son that was living with her passed away about a month ago, now, but she seems to be doing okay.

Rosie, Nice to get the extra days. And Yes You Can Do It! You are a smart woman and I think you can do anything you set your mind to.
It will be good if you can get out to walk, doesn't have to be fast or long, just doing it!
I am feeling good after my big mess with statins. That was awful and took a long time to find something that worked. It was an awful summer as I felt bad from about April to January. It is nice to feel good again, actually feel great!
I worry about hubby breaking a hip, he has broken ribs and his hand so far. He is going downhill.
I am so lucky I can do what I do. I thank God for that everyday!
Have a great day Rosie,
Carol

Yes, tomorrow is the 1st. April Fools Day, my hubby used to get me all the time, on it, every year first thing in the morning when I'd get up!!! emoticon

We have snow now in ours,

Sorry your hubby falls a lot sure hope he doesn't break a hip or something. emoticon

Glad you are getting some walking, I want to as soon as this weather clears up, hopefully soon......But, I can not walk very far yet, I have to take it slow, because of my legs, I never ever was a very fast walker, but, I used to love riding my bike as a kid..

It has actually been a nice day for me,,,, and I got an extra day of work, yesterday as a co worker called in, her kids were sick. I also have an extra day, this coming Wed. as someone is;has to take her sister to the eye doctor and I will fill in in housekeeping, going to be working 3 week days in a row, I Can Do It!! emoticon

Good Morning Joy and Rosie, March is almost over! We have snow in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Yikes I was hoping it was over. But I guess not. Going to get around four inches if the weather person is right. Hope they are wrong.
Nice weather the last few days, I have been waking and getting my 10000 steps, I feel better because of it!
I hope all is well with everyone, my hubby is still not doing well, he sees his dr May 3 and I have a ton of questions for him. Hope they can do something to help him. I worry about him breaking a hip or something like that. He falls a lot.
Going to the gym this morning, I am doing weights, makes me feel better!
Have a great day and thinking of you!

Joy sounds like it is getting hard. Sorry your kids don't help mine either. Except for the two younger kids the others don't bother with their father. Kind of sad. Hope the condum cath works saves time.
Dinner sounds really good. We went out to eat. Had fun.
I miss you when you don't post and hope you feel better soon.
We had a mild won't too.
Big hug. Carol.

Ihaven't bee feeing well. Just didn't feel like writing. Had kids for Easter. Fixed ham and beans,mac and cheese and oven fried potatoes, cornbread, cake, banana udding and fruit salad. wore me out. Didn;t know ow many beans. Soaked over 3 lbs. ad 2 big crock potsfull. Way too many.
Carol, sorry about hubby. Mine falls a lot. I think I told about condom cathers. He wore it firt night. after that he would pull it off. Quit putting one on and tried again last night. Kept it on. I had started getting up and just let him use urinal lying down. Up 4 0r 5 times. Worn out. I hope he keeps leaving it on. Usualy had to chaange pullup and t shirt in night and pad under him.
Rosie, take care of knee. The weather has been so nice. Cheap heating bill. We're all electric. Thank goodnes it has been cheap. I think it is cathater instead of cather. Can't think ver well.

I am aggravated at kids. They don't come much and neer help. I still go to store or a llittle thrift store some and TOPS. He getsup and prowles when I leave, i think. God bless, Jo


This is my new ticker. I can

I hope the snow stops, we have rain, good old rain! I love it. I am going to work in the yard tomorrow if it stops.
What are you doing for Easter? We are going to a Easter Buffet at the Crown Plaza where my daughter works. Sounds so good, this will be the first holiday in my life that I didn't cook. Can't wait. I am planning my attack on all the good food. Maybe I will start with desert first. lol
I have to have blood work done today, sigh, don't feel like it but I am going to get there early.
I hope all is well with joy, Miss you Joy.
Happy Easter to all

Rosie, I don't have full size carpets anywhere. A good thing because hubby can't wa;k on them his feet get all messed up. I am looking at bed rails. That should keep him in bed. I think it is worth a try!
We were supposed to get mixed weather last night but nothing. Hope we don;t get anything but rain.
I have been getting 10000 steps and it feels good. I feel much better. The gym helps too!
My hubby has more black and blues than you can count he is falling at least twice a day. I think we are getting to the point where we have to do something.
Have a great day,
Carol who hopes you don't get any freezing anything!

I thought maybe you had full carpet in the bedrooms, and at the Nursing Home, they have thin mats, about the size for twin beds, and some have a twin size mattress in front of the beds, to break their fall, if they should happen to fall out of bed. Some people get bruised with black eyes and ETC from those kind of falls. emoticon

It is very cold here, and we're to have storm coming in tonight and tomorrow. And I have to work the next two days, and freeze, brrr

Good Morning Rosie,
Nice day here the snow we got is all gone, Happy about that it only lasted a day!
Don't dare put a carpet or anything near hubbys bed as he would trip in it. We used to have a small rug but he spilled so much stuff on it I threw it out. Safer with just the floor. I am thinking rails for his bed, that seems to be the safest thing right now. sigh.
I hope you don't get any snow or anything other than rain.
I am saying a prayer for your knees and you too.
Have a great day,
Carol who is going to the gym today!

Yeah, it is a pesky knee alright lol. I'll just have to learn to live with it, I guess, it just makes some walking slower than before especially with being knock knees..

Carol, sorry your hubby has fell again now, is .there carpet in the bedroom, or could you put something in front of his bed to make it safer for him, in case he falls out of bed again?

We are suppose to have a storm coming, with rain and snow, or both

Hope that pesky knee gets better Rosie, it must be awful not knowing if it is going to hurt.
Hope you have a great day. we got our pluming fixed I can use the washing machine now!
Hubby fell last night going to bed and he fell again this morning, out of bed! I think I have to start making plans for him. This is not safe.
Have a great day,

Well, I'm not sure if they helped today or not, as I still had some knee pain, when putting weight on it getting in and out of my car a few times, today. But, it is pretty windy and chilly, so that could possibly be part of it, I am a baby. lol When I see my NP in May, I am going to try to talk to her about this knee, but, I do not plan on going to therapy again as I have done that, just want to see if she can answer why it pains like that,

We had snow covered ground last night, but, it is all gone now, but, we have snow, that, we can get now, yet this week.......

Yea for the exercises and oil, hope it continues to help. I want you to feel good with no pain.
We have snow, not a lot and don't have to shovel as it is going to be 50 tomorrow, I am going to let it melt. Had to have the plumming in the basement fixed today, there was a leak. I think all the pluming has been updated at this point.
Have a great day,

Thanks Carol, this morning, my knee seemed a bit better, last night I put some of the Essential Lotion on it, also took a Tyelenol, but, I took a Tylenol usually everyday.It might have been the chilly cold wind and all, that made it hurt worse. Anyway, I believe I am going to use more of this essential lotion, some people swear by it. :) I just wish the pain would go away as well. yes, I do them exercises as often as I can.

Rosie, I am so sorry about your knee, I hope it just goes away, I understand about the surgery. Not fun and you would be off your feet for a while. Have you been doing the physical therapy at home. My hubby has problems with his back but it is because he sits too much. The physical therapest gave him things to do but he will not do them. So I don't know what to do with that anymore. The next time they tell me he needs therapy I am going to tell them the only way he will do anything is to be in rehab. That might get him to move!
I hope you have a great day today Rosie, thinking of you.
Oh and we are getting SNOW, We have a couple of inches so far but it is going to snow all day. The dogs looked shocked when they went out this morning. It was funny to see the looks on their faces. lol
Have a great day,

Thanks, Carol, I still have problems with my knee, especially if I sit too long, I can't even sit for a half hour or sometimes even a 15 minute ride, and yesterday every time, I drove from one store to another, it hurt like crazy to put any weight on my left knee, I bought a knee brace, but, I don't like it, because, it will not stay tight or etc. I take Tylenol Arthritis it helps some, but,?? I also use Icy Hot on it and sometimes I use the Essential Lotion that a lady at Church makes up, Plus I have a limp now when I walk from the "Knocked Knees" that the therapist said I have. Surgery is the last thing I want and a Nurse at work told me that. The weather has been so windy and cold, but, it could be worse, at least I can walk!! And have pretty good health as well,

Basically I work, because I have too.

Good Morning Rosie and Joy,
Made a pot roast last night in the slow cooker. Smelled good all night, I don't have to cook today or for the rest of the week, lol.
I won't make them eat it all week but made a lot, going to freeze some.
Snow tomorrow, sigh. Hope it is only an inch or two. I can handle that. We have had such a mild winter. Counting my blessings on that one.
Rosie have a good day at work!

Being able to work is a blessing from God. People were intended to work. My Father worked until he died at 84, he didn't need the money he needed to work. He instilled that in us, work until you can't and be thankful. I miss working so much, most of the time.
So Rosie I think you are lucky!
We have a man at work in his 90's that works 5 days a week, he is never sick or misses a day.
I hate retirement, can't do anything because of hubby. sigh
Guess I should stop complaining, I have my health.
Have a great day Rosie,

Carol, where I work, lots of people ask me when am I going to retire, even some of the Residents families, say, "you're about ready to retire aren't you, or when can you retire, stuff like that, or people I know, say the same thing, But, my Finances won't let me, I went to Social Services about 2-3 years ago, to, see if they would help pay for my Medicare premium, and I was told that I made too much even working part time and also if I was not working, I would still be making too much and I don't really do not get that much. Anyways, I can retire, but, would not have enough to take care of all my utilities I do howeve plan on getting rid if my landline phone. If and when I do, I just do not want to have to go to Soc. Ser. and ask them to pay a bill that has a Shut Off Notice, because she said then they will pay the bill, I would be up there a lot Lol emoticon

Day off tooday, going shopping my DD and I, going to be fun I think and back to work tomorrow.

Rosie, we have had a total of 6 inches of snow all winter, nothing like what we usually get. So I guess I can't complain, it will melt fast as it is going to warm up again. We have had the warmest winter on record.
It is good you can work, I go to the grocery store and see all my work buddies and it is like going home. We had a good time it is a good place to work. There are lots of seniors working there. Keeps us out of trouble. I hope I can go back someday!
I went to the gym yesterday and it makes me feel so good. I like seeing all the people it is like lots of energy. I walk, do the ellipitical and weights.
Going down with a fight.
Have a great day Rosie and hi to Joy!

Well, I worked today, off tomorrow and work on Sunday,,, emoticon ,

Yeah, Carol, that is a bummer getting a snow storm now after all winter with out, we had snow, but, it came later and we didn't have any on Christmas Day, which did not hurt my feelings at all, our snow is gone except for here and there, There are a few snow banks, we had a bit of snow last night, but the pavement was just wet and the grass and some stuff had only, a scuff of snow on them and it is gone now, but, I feel chilled I have not checked the weather here, yet.

Rosie, I wish they would leave the time alone too. Seems silly, to me anyway.
We are going to have a big snowstorm Sunday night into Monday, they say as much as a food of heavy stuff, sigh, went all winter without snow and now that it is spring we are going toget a nor'easter. Oh well nothing I can do about it. Going to spray the shovels with teflon.
How is everyone doing? We are going out to Easter brunch this year, I am not cooking!
I feel good about that.
I hope everyone has a good day,

It was 37 here, not sure what it is now., Not much going on right now and I am skipping Church today, it is a Teen Thing, TFC teens For Christ, they used to have it at the School as our Church was not big enough, but, this day it is at the Church and our Church is being Added on to, I'll have to take some pictures and post them.. I know a few people that don't go to this Service which really is not a Service, but, well, maybe...

Have a nice day
