Trip to Texas

Thursday, September 16, 2010

Well, it's been awhile. This trip I'm down in the SOUTHERN most part of Texas (near the border). I've been down here for about three weeks. The first week I was down here I developed pneumonia. I was hospitalized over Labor Day weekend, and am on meds for the pneumonia until next week. Also, the doc here put me on BP meds because of the edema (swelling) in my legs and my weight. I was hesitant, and called my own doc. He said to take the BP meds until I got back home to Maine. So now I'm on a BP med for water retention. I consider all of this a WAKE-UP call. I went to the local Barnes & Noble and picked up my own copy of THE SPARK and am trying to get really focused on changing things. Here would be a GREAT place to start; however, when I return home, the stress and events with my family will be challenges that aren't factors here. So I'm looking for ways to start changes NOW that I can continue when I go back home.
