Beloved and I went to the gym this morning, my first time back since being started on the metroprolol. I couldn't go as far, as fast, or as vigorous as I used to be able to, but it's good to be back exercising. We will start working me up to wh... Read more
Weight is sneaking back on!

I thought my pants felt snug the last few days so I got on the scale this morning. Up 11 lbs since I left the hospital a month ago! Too much hard eggnog, too many holiday cookies. We have got to plan more meals to be eaten AT HOME instead of w... Read more

We still take dancing lessons two afternoons a week, and now we are brushing up on pistol shooting as well. The weeks get too busy since I'm back volunteering at school in the next city, caring for Mum again, yet the dancing and shooting lesson... Read more

Beloved is driving in December just to make sure I have not dizziness. Blood pressure seems somewhat controlled on metroprol 50 mg every day and if it rises I can take micro doses of lisinopril...but there is not time to be measuring BP in ssho... Read more
First time using health insurance...what a joke!
Monday, November 30, 2015      1 comments

In California we had Kaiser where everything was covered and we never saw a bill, just paid the monthly premium. Now, here in South Carolina we not only pay an exorbitant monthly premium for our health insurance since our retirement health insu... Read more

I have bags under my eyes...yes, I'm 62 so they are to be expected but I could pack for a month cruise in my eye bags! We were in the mall, beloved and I, and I pointed out an expensive make-up store I thought might have a "cure". And the youn... Read more

Still married to the love of my life; still have Mum...at almost 90 she's a lot of work but I know time will be short so I try to remember to cherish every moment; despite a very rocky October and November I'm getting my health back and am deter... Read more

I'm living on 1's and 2's, even for team points. Surely someone gets a 25 once in a while?... Read more
Still getting dizzy!

Today I called a pharmacist and told him my recent history and the new meds I am on for high BP. He thinks I am still on meds too strong for what my body can handle and said I shouldn't have been started on THREE meds because now we have to fig... Read more

We picked up Mum, went to church where I had the Children s Story. I was so dizzy I had to hang on to the pews! We had a nice lunch ready in the crock pot when we got home...chicken picatta from Sam's Club into which we added onions and mushroo... Read more
Hiking on the nature trail....COLD!

Winter is pushing in early. Yesterday was warm, high in the 70's, but last night the wind started blowing. This morning there is a hard frost on the ground and it's only 40 degrees. We are doing a nice hike, not too long, since I want to be able... Read more

Got all the way there and the woman said they didn't take my insurance! It was all arranged by the doctor's office ahead of time...somebody goofed somewhere. Oh well, we start over because I'm trying to learn to let things go that I cannot con... Read more
Giving up my wine!
Wednesday, November 18, 2015      3 comments

I really enjoy a nice glass of pinot grigio in the evening but now I'm giving it up. Not only is it a source of empty calories, but my girlfriend's husband is an alcoholic and to support her, I'm dropping it. Such a shame to see a marriage fail... Read more

I found a very large cancer on her right hand which she'd kept covered with a band-aid. Today we will take her to the dermatologist to have it removed.... Read more
This whole mess was from too much BP meds!
Saturday, November 14, 2015      4 comments

The cardiologist said it all was from too big a dose of BP meds! All the passing out, EMS trips to the hospital, dizziness, angiograms, and CT scans when nothing was wrong except my dose was too high. We are starting to return to normal in the... Read more
