I have a loaf of bread in the bread machine and I'm about to head out to replenish our wine supplies. Then I'll do some weeding in the herb garden and try to reclaim the tomatillos from the weeds. Anywhere where it's shady out there!

Sitting here mulling over the possibilities of me getting anything done around here in the next month. We need to have a deck built, line up the landscaper to finish off the yard once the deck is built, I have to restore the gardens after they became jungles this hot and rainy summer...well, I'll be happy if I get one done. Plus I want to have a garage sale in September (I cannot believe how much STUFF we have ) as we plan on seeing the kids in October. So much to do, but so much more fun goofing off. If you guys see me around here less I'm being successful in knocking down that list. And I'll be here all the time if I'm not.

Watching "102 minutes". Pieced-together footage, minute by minute, of what happened on 9/11.

I never made it to the party. Instead I took a side trip to the hospital, AGAIN! I had a BP crash. This time it was a good one. My heart rate dropped to 55. I really had to fight to not pass out. This only happens when I take my morning meds. I had a snarky twit of a young doctor who has a God complex. When I tried to tell him when this happens, he said in a nasty tone "Why don't you let met do my job." So I have decided that since they won't listen to me, I will have to take matters in my own hands. I am going to stop taking my morning dose of my Isorsorbide.

I am really becoming concerned that one of these times, it will be CPR time for me. This has been going on for more than a year. And always about an hour after I take my morning meds.

The EMT in the ambulance couldn't get a BP reading. Not surprising. I kept hearing "Adele stay with me." Believe me I was trying. At least this time he had no problem getting an IV started.

The snarky doctor decided that there was no need to take up a bed and keep me overnight for observation. Fine by me. But I did walk up to him and apologize for disturbing him and taking up his time. And then walked away fast before he could respond. Two nurses were standing right there and I heard them start to laugh.

I am home and all right. And dang it. I missed a party that I wanted to go to so badly. Did I just say that?

You give it to him, Addie, lol.
Sounds like a close call. After a year of this I think a change is in order for sure.
But at least you didn't have to go to the party you really didn't want to. Heckuva way to get out of that ;^)

My thoughts too, Pac!

Addie, we need to think of less dramatic ways to get you out of a party!

Of course, I remembered my manners. I said it with a smile. Or was that a smirk?
