Good Friday Morning, Kids,
Time for a new Porch. This looks a lot like my beloved CO in the wintertime. I miss skiing. Glad I did a lot of it when I lived there. It's gonna warm up a bit here too today. Tomorrow should be perfect for the art fest, in the 70's. Only one friend can't make it so there will be four of us. I ate the last of my lunch for dinner last evening. It was good but not great. We used to have a place here that was wildly popular and it wasn't expensive. Went out of business.
I was sooo sleepy and dizzy yesterday afternoon that I slept most of the rest of the day after lunch. Went to bed early and slept too. I just can't take the full dose of my BP med. My BP was 114/67 which is good but it's usually 125/72 on half a dose. Gonna experiment with three quarters of a dose using my pill splitter. My system is very sensitive to this drug. The longer I'm on it, the better it works. Doc kinda leaves it up to me to adjust it. I'll wait til after the art fest though.
SV seemed to stop drinking water again and didn't use his box last night. I filled a glass and coaxed him til he finally drank. Can't have him getting sick over the weekend and having to go to the ER. Don't think his equipment is too narrow or else it wouldn't work so well most of the time. I have to once again let the guy into the unit downstairs to check the moisture at 10:00 to 11:00 this morning. Before that, I'm gonna jump into the shower to wash my hair so I won't have to do it in the morning before we go.
Still feeling so much better. Not great but certainly better than I was when my exhaustion was so bad. Also, the inflammation in my legs is better and I'm not having that sensation of electric current in them. One benefit of the new watch is that it's like a brace on my arthritic wrist and helps with the pain. The watch band is wide and it fits tightly.
Sun, the restaurant was nice but not lavishly decorated. No table cloths but the napkins were linen. It was on a canal in a marina by the river just before the estuary where it empties into the Gulf. No view except the big metal boat storage bldg. and some boats docked next to the bldg. I guess to land lubbers, it's exciting. I prefer Joe's Crab Shack on the river downtown where you can see clear across to the other side of the wide river. There is a marina there where there are a lot more boats. Lots of big birds with nests on the tops of the posts. That's where I get my huge Cajun pot with all kinds of things. That's scary about your BP. Mine has gone up like that for a day or so but it has always come back down. The full pill leaves me too sleepy so I've got to take 3/4 of one to see how that works. Gonna wait til after the art fest so I won't be too tired to walk. That is so scary about the stairs moving away when the water/mud came through that lady's home. Yikes! Glad you and Rock are in a safer place and I hope Barry is too.
Julie, glad it's going to warm up. Still not warm but better than how cold it's been. Nancy is looking forward to the change. Yes, those bulbs do make a difference. I didn't change them out at first due to the high cost but they have come down in price dramatically. Have you ever deeply massaged the inflamed areas? When I went to PT, the tech did that with some kind of hand-held gizmo. Think I've mentioned that I use a plastic ball with some pointy ridges on it. It also works with just my hand. You massage toward the body. My thighs and shins get very inflamed. The CBD oil works great for that when rubbed on. Menthol salves work pretty well too. Hope all goes well as you and Den transition to 'retirement.'
