I grew up through the 60's and 70's also. I just heard of 4/20 a few years ago from a younger coworker. I guess you have to be living the life.

The one med. I want to get rid of the most, I never will. It is the Warifram (blood thinner) because of the Titanium Valve implanted in my heart.

Getting tired of blood draws??? Hopefully they can get you on a steady dose! Cut back on the blood work.

We just got a cool new machine at work, I get to learn how to use it next week. From what I understand, just a simple finger stick to check your PT/INR, no more blood draws! If you are interested, let me know and I will find the info for it and PM it to you!

My problem is trying to eat good food but if one thing is good for my diabetic diet it doesn't agree with the cardiac diet. I keep telling people, simple pepper on cardboard with a water chaser is the safest thing I can eat.

That portable machine like a blood sugar machine (but a little bigger machine and finger stick OUCH!) My visiting nurse had one, but that is over now so I have to go to the hospital and get blood drawn. The woman in the lab told me the machine cost 2000.00 so I have to have the test the old fashion way.

Attachment 13541I am not a diabetic, but I was told to cut out Salt, Sugar, Fat, Carbs and Vitamin K?? I am with you on the cardboard boxes with pepper. Everything in moderation is the only way I can eat anything.

LOL! You already have more experience with the machine than I do. The facility is hoping it will lower our lab costs, especially when a patient is getting daily draws. Medicare doesn't care what the lab costs are, they just pay a flat rate for all care a patient receives and the facility has to pay the rest. We'll see if the machine ends up paying for itself.

Actually, my diabetes medication has slowed down my eating, it's been fairly painless to cut my portions back. I'm lucky if I can eat much more than a cup of food at a sitting. I can get 3-4 meals out of one meal from a restaurant.

Well, off to bed...have a 7 mile bike ride tomorrow/today. I better get some sleep Have a great night, Patti.

Tonight was a vegetable/chickpea sandwich on whole wheat pita. Chopped and sliced vegetables, such as red bell pepper, sweet onion, cucumber, and tomatoes, with chickpeas, extra sharp cheddar, and black olives. Served with a yogurt sauce with cilantro, cumin and hot sauce.
