Of course I didn't get to see my doctor again today just one of the other doctors in her office. My BP was lower than it was 2 weeks ago, the swelling is down in my feet (somewhat), and she'd like to see me in 2 weeks. Not going to happen. She is going to check my labs to see if my kidney's can handle a higher dose of the water pills and maybe add more BP stuff..said she would have the nurse call me since I won't be here to come in.
My take on my feet is they are no long in nearly as bad pain as they were 3 weeks ago, and the cold in my toes seems to have stopped. I'm feeling in general better than I have in several months. When my feet were really bad usually by the end of the day the balls of my feet would feel like I was walking on pebbles and my toes would be freezing feeling but not cold to the touch. The water pills seemed to have cleared most of that up and considering the weather it no wonder my feet are still a bit swollen.
It is what it is. I'm pushing limits and getting to feel my age a bit more than I would like but when your only real problems are BP, swollen feet and the every present anxiety meds I don't think I'm in too bad a shape.
1. not perfect but as far as I'm concerned feeling better
2. cold food
3. my silly son called last night and tried to ask me if it was OK while I was there if he took his wife to Vegas for a couple of days and I could stay with the kids. They've both been working from home with 3 teenagers doing online school for 15 months...take you wife on a little trip.
Worked on scraps again today but will stop and make a couple of bags tomorrow. The little gal across the street is graduating from HS this week and all the neighbors have been invited to stop over. I thought a cute bag and $20 would work as a little gift. Other than the fact it is Fri. tomorrow I'll do that normal stuff and come home and make her a little gift and a card.
