Tuesday, August 15, 2017      5 comments

On March 15, I was at my lowest. I could hardly stand on my own 2 feet without assistance. My husband or one of my children had to help me to my chair or to the bathroom, or back to bed. I was physically at my lowest, and emotionally I was done.... Read more
Gliperide Vs. Self-Control
Friday, July 21, 2017      2 comments

I've had issues with my blood sugar dropping too low the last couple of weeks. I normally take 4mg of glimiperide but a couple of months ago I had to drop that down to half a pill. I've lost a couple more pounds but not a whole lot. But my ac... Read more

So, I started back to work this week. Which is GREAT. I have missed working terribly. A 6-month long vacation was not planned to be certain. Especially one that included a stroke, 2 heart surgeries, 2 blood transfusions AND a total hysterecto... Read more

I saw my cardiologist today - or rather his NP - she gave me a full bill of health and says I'm allowed to return to work and ALL other normal activities as I feel fit. Which since I feel better than I have in years... that pretty much includes... Read more

Friday I went in for the stress test. It was no where near as bad as I expected it to be. Although, for whatever reason my blood pressure was kinda low through most of the test. 95/50. How weird is that? I think their cuff was "off". Anyway.... Read more

I broke down and used some of my rabbit money to order some new walking sneakers. For years I've worn saucony cohesion 10. I discovered them a decade ago the first time I got into walking and walked off 60+ lbs. Although I got out of the habit ... Read more
Popcorn Popper Deal

One of my favorite treats... something to munch on that is somewhat healthy is popcorn. I've always popped it on stove top with cooking oil. Popcorn is high in fiber and low in calories (if you don't pop it with oil). Well today, while my daught... Read more
Good Company and Potato Soup

Today was a long day... I slept late to begin with. Dear friends from the opposite side of the state arrived in time for lunch. I threw together some delicious (so I'm told) potato soup while trying to shower and dress. Of course... they arri... Read more

I truly believe that when I had my stroke, our heavenly father had his hands on me. In relation, I had a very mild stroke. I'm not even positive when it occurred. On Christmas even I noticed a numb/tingling sensation along the left side of my ... Read more
