Right now I am fighting to stay alert. I took my meds and sure enough my blood pressure crashed. It is so low, it won't even register on my BP machine. I was going to call 911, but slowly I can feel it coming back up. I wish I knew what I could do when this happens. Fortunately Spike was here with me and stayed until I felt a little better.

I have mentioned this problem to my doctor. So whoopee! He lowered my BP med by a half of pill. I have more or less changed my diet and am not eating all those foods with a lot of fat. It wasn't a deliberate change. I just prefer veggie salad to fatty meats. And I am eating less that I used to. And the weight is coming off about two pounds a month.

I am going to stop taking my BP meds and not even tell the doctor. I can't keep doing this. My instructions were to check my BP before I take my meds. If my pressure is low, don't take the BP meds. Well, I did check my BP before I took my meds and it was 120/60. That is a very good BP.

Okay. I am feeling better and time to read some of the postings. I need to get some water in me and eat.

I have to do some minor cleaning. The place is a sty and it won't be good, but I don't want CWS to be scared to sit down.
It was great to see TL again and get that hug from PF! And, TL, I had a hard time peeling myself away, I wish I could've stayed the night. Maybe next time or you can come here for a cook-a-thon. I know we could have a lot of fun in the kitchen together, especially if you teach me how to make the perfect margarita!

Just got the news, one of our nurses lost her fight with cancer tonight. She was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and it was all through her. G'night Ginny! I'll miss you.

Sorry for your loss PF. Two weeks - wow. Not even enough time to balance a checkbook...

Wow, that was fast. Just two weeks... sad.

Yesterday I got a Beagle back to her owners. I heard her baying out back and while I was brush hogging back there I saw her. She came up to me with a little coaxing and I slipped my belt over her head and called her owner (she had a tag on). Poor old girl was all cut up in the face from chasing bunnies. She had been missing a few hours and was whooped. I swear Beagles have the most tenacity of any breed.
Then just twenty minutes later someone stopped who was missing his dog. He had two, but found the one an the RR tracks...
