Little up date

Just got out of the hospital again tonight. Did not have heart failure. Instead I have a clot in my lung from ??? not sure what they said but it doesn't really matter. Now I have an uneven heart beat that has to be controlled with medicine and a blood thinner.

I think I'm pretty lucky every time I wake up and find I'm still here. Staying out of the hospital is the goal for now. Sitting and stitching should keep me down and out of trouble... Now for some rest in my own bed!

from bad to bad

Just a note. I'm pretty sick so you might not hear from me. Some how I ended up with a blood infection and something caused heart failure.

Oh joy, a diet

Today I start the Pet Scan diet. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I was a meat and fish eater, but I'm not so this is really a limited diet.

Since eggs are the biggest thing on the list of eatables I see a lot of Omelette's being eaten over the next few days.  Salad greens are allowed but I just can't see myself eating a wedge of lettuce with nothing on it so I've removed greens from the short list. I can have chicken or beef stock, tea & coffee with non dairy creamer.

It all looks good, nice and fresh and ready for the steamer but I'm just not sure how to make a meal out of it.

Tomorrow I have to be in Philly to meet with the Oncologist. Of course it's going to snow to make the trip hard and the appt. isn't until 3:00 so the roads will be bad coming home.   This could be a motel night.

So much to do and now bad weather will start tomorrow night. Next week starts my 3 day fast for the Pet Scan. Not looking forward to it but this should be the last test. It will take place on Friday but on Tuesday I have to be in Philly to meet the Oncologist.

I had to go on Prednisone for the RA...not a good drug but it got me out of bed and my fingers open again. It has the RA joint spasms under control...for now. It's not a drug you can stay on but I needed to be up and running and have a clear head to make good choices right now.

I'm trying to stay busy. I am working on a wool quilt for Dave and maybe I'll have enough wool to make one for my youngest son's truck. I am also trying to work on my quilt, doll quilts I have promised, a covered bridge wall hanging and several other unfinished projects.

I also pulled some dead flowers out of Wal Marts trash. Water and food and I think they are going to give me wonderful flowers sometime in cold old January!

I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve! We spent ours fixing trains and sewing!
