My shoes don't fit today!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

My daughter joined me at church today which was really a blessing. Not wanting to let go of our limited time together, I invited her to have lunch after church. Thank God for a smart, health-conscious daughter who helped me choose the healthy eating place, over the salt-laden all-you-can-eat salad, soup, and garlic roll "special " at another restaurant!
When I awoke this morning, my ankles and feet were still so swollen that I couldn't even get the wide strappy sandles on. My right foot is twice its' normal size, and the left foot is pretty swollen, as well. I'm drinking more water than usual today, and refraining from carbs as much as possible. I should be sitting or lying down with my feet raised, but instead I'm still glued to this computer. Talk about being addicted to the computer. So much to see and read here.
So now I'm going cold turkey and shutting this thing off before my feet explode! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Laptop!!! I have lymph edema a lot and I don't use salt. Try throwing away the salt shaker and using other spices. We don't miss it at all anymore. Another thing I have found is sleeping with your feet on a pillow. That really helps to reduce the swelling overnight. And for goodness sake don't take a water pill after 3:00 in the afternoon or you will be up and down all night. Good luck!

    I'm so sorry about your feet being so swollen but you need to get away from the computer and elevate your feet and stay aways from all the salty products. Wishing you well.

    Hugs,
