Doctors ???

Thursday, June 10, 2021

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.

thank fulls
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.

    Good evening, I agree with Eileen (Jamer123) if you have more problems ( of any kind ), tell the clinic you want to see your doctor, as you feel the most comfortable seeing her, don, let them talk you into seeing another doctor.
    That is so nice you will watch the three teenager grandchildren while your son takes his wife on a short trip, when your there. I agree that the cute purse that you will make with a cute homemade card and $20. should do nicely for a gift for a graduate.
    Yup, our refrigerator showed up but not until after 6:30 this evening, So guess who didn't make it to Jo Ann's today. Rather ticked off, was suppose t be here by 4 this afternoon, that would still put us going to McAllen today, but not after 7 PM by the time they got it into our place and set it up. So it will be tomorrow or Saturday, depending on how my body is still reacting to the steak dinner I had Tuesday night.
    One of my friends gave me about 8 of her quilting books, s was looking through them. A lot of the things are way more advanced than I feel comfortable, but did find a several cute patterns for, a table runner, place mats, a baby quilt, and a wall hanging. I do have some projects here to start and finish before I work on any of those, but nice to get a few for the future.
    Have fun getting your hair done, and whatever else you do before returning home to start working on purses.

    I'm glad you are feeling a little better. Be sure to keep in contact with your doctor to make sure that your kidneys are able to handle whatever she gives you.

    If you aren't comfortable with the Dr. you saw, make another appt. and state you will see only the Dr. that is following you. My Dr. moved in with a Dr. that has had mega issues with his work and the staff tried to give me an appt. with him. I told them absolutely never, I will wait until my personal Dr. is available. (I worked with the other Dr. as he was fired from the hospital we worked at.)

    Glad you can give your son and wife a little vacation. It's a good time for you too as you can enjoy a new surrounding.

    Please just be careful. Sometimes things seem better but they are on a temporary pause
