Beloved carried all my "art" stuff into the school yesterday after we had Mum safely in the dentist's chair. The children were thrilled to have a craft ahead of them! I had a coupon for half off a box of Krispy Kreme glazed, just enough to give... Read more

Saw the doctor yesterday and AFTER my meds my BP was 187/97. She ordered me to take my full course of meds TWICE a day now, am and pm. My liver function studies from January are TWICE normal limits so I'm off all processed foods, no wine, no su... Read more

The cardiologist insists it's from "ear problem" despite us pointing out it only started 4 months ago when I started on beta blockers. Today I see my Primary Care physician to get thoroughly checked out, again, and discuss what on earth we are g... Read more

We went to her place and did the cat's nails, then I soaked Mum's feet and gave her a monthly pedicure. Her nails are so thick now I have to cut them with a tool, snippers of some kind. I had made her favorite flan and tucked it into the 'frid... Read more

My first question was about healthy choices with type 2 diabetes, which was NOT the best choice. Their article clearly says "Eat fats in moderation. Your total fat intake should make up no more than 30% of your calories daily—that's about 60 gr... Read more

Ready to get off this beautiful ship, get the car, and beloved can drive us home. Should be about 11 hours, depending on traffic. Cruise prices have doubled since last year on RCI so we will be cutting back. Fun, but not necessary.... Read more

This has been the coldest Caribbean cruise we have ever been on, two weeks of too cool, too windy, and not enough sun. Yesterday we didn't get off the ship in Cozumel because it rained a wall of water most of the day! People came back soaked b... Read more

It's 165/99 in the morning and I take metroprolol and lisinopril with hctz. Two hours later it might be down to 140/90 but in the evening it isn't lower than that. I may have to get my meds changed in the near future, which I dread after the l... Read more
