I am so happy to be here this Wednesday! I had no idea it was so late in the afternoon. I was deep into one of Paula Brackston’s slip time tales and lost all track of time.
We had a rough few days. Tommy’s BP bottomed out and he crashed. Like into the wall and my knitting basket and then proceeded to throw up on the floor. It’s dark and I can’t see that well so I just stuck a can under his mouth and put a wet cloth on his head. Right before he passed out he said he was going to throw up and I knew from my own experiences that his blood pressure had gone way down too fast. Been there.
Monday we were scared of the visit to the cancer center and his surgeon. Well at the end of the day, NO. CANCER. And yesterday he met with his GP and she brought in a pharmacist to talk about which meds were causing issues and which ones he could drop. His blood work was perfect as usual and he is continuing to lose weight and stay away from the gallon of sweet tea. He even drank my SuperFoods Smoothie yesterday. Because his doctor told him to do what I do!! Win!
We have a notion that people change for 2 reasons. Fear or Recognition. And he has had both. He doesn’t want to stroke out and he’s looking pretty hot. So we celebrated by finishing The Crown! So good news all around. Except for my two sons and my mother and sister who are up there on the North Dakota/Canada border where it is -60! I feel for y’all, I really do. So sending warm thoughts to all of you in the frozen tundra areas!
Thank you all for the prayers and love! We are truly Thankful, Grateful and Blessed and reading your blogs has kept me sane and out of my own head. Isn’t it amazing how people can touch your life so intimately and yet you’ve never met them in the “real” world?
