Sunday, August 09, 2015      4 comments

I called Mum today and she sounded down a bit. After pressing her a bit she admitted she had a bad fall this morning, out of bed onto the floor. Took her over an hour to crawl around the house before she got to the toilet to pull herself up. ... Read more

No epigastric pain at all, just some incision site pain especially when the cat walks on my tummy! Feeling so much better now. I have to force myself to eat but my appetite will return as time goes by.... Read more

Walking very slowly with the 4 incisions but I have no interest in food at all. Not hungry, nothing seems to be moving yet. I got my walking in very very slowly and now I'm wiped out. But I have gone from every 4 hour pain meds to every 7!... Read more

Surgery was scheduled for 11 am yesterday but "something major" happened and I was delayed until almost 5pm. Not a problem! Didn't get home until very late last night but the surgeon was great, even gave my husband the pain prescription BEFOR... Read more

Not high at home!

Bought a home blood pressure machine, Omron, or something like that name. I have been taking my BP at home twice a day and it's within normal all the time! It does shoot up if I climb the stairs and immediately take it, so I think I'm OK. I'l... Read more

It's been creeping up steadily and yesterday at pre-op it was 138/99. The nurse gasped so I told her I was in pain. Have got to notify my own doctor and get my dose adjusted.... Read more

And I'm so glad! Yesterday a sample of cinnamon bread from Great Harvest brought on pain about an hour after eating it, and then I ate carefully all day. For dinner I had a handful of almonds and during the night I was in pain again. This little... Read more

Walked, then went tandem riding for 19 miles with my beloved and I am SO much stronger than when we bought it a year ago! We chugged up these "Carolina foothills" that killed us last year. Today we are taking our first dance lesson, only 30 minu... Read more

Took the tandem out about 5 miles into the back hills and roads of gorgeous upstate South Carolina when suddenly the chain jumped the derailleur while shifting, which torqued the back chain, bent the derailleur, and brought the tandem to a scree... Read more

Lots of hills which I don't dare look at so I just keep my head down and keep pedaling. Pretty soon we are at the top and not once was it too much! We came home soaked and worn out, I actually dozed for a few minutes. Last year when we first go... Read more
