More Downs then Ups...
Thursday, December 01, 2011
The last few weeks have been rather depressing. My feet have gotten better, but the left heel still hurts if I walk much. I caught pink eye from my grandsons twice, once with me basically blind for a day & unable to read for several days. One of my sister-in-laws had a heart attack & stroke. After several weeks in a medically induced coma, it was announced that her brain waves indicated no one was home. The family voted to have her removed from life sustaining machinery & she died last Sunday.
My blood pressure has been up & I have been having chest pains. Yesterday at cardio I was hooked up to the monitor again & fed nitro. All & all, November has been a bad month. I am taking comfort in that at least I am not dead. Nor am I in major pain, just uncomfortable and worried.
My sister-in-laws services will be Saturday in the Twin Cities. Our family plans on going up on Friday, (tomorrow) and watching the Holidazzle parade. The cardio rehab people suggested that the cold might not be the best for me, especially as I am having issues. I am starting to wonder if the trip is worth it for me. I don;t want to be several hours away from home and my doctor if my heart starts acting up again.
Anyway, it is December 1 and December will go better - right???
