why no bp cuff? --- sam
People who have had mastectomy can’t have BP cuff or tourniquet because of the disruption in lymphatic drainage can cause their arm to swell
Gwen, the new glasses look great. I couldn’t wear progressives, they made me nauseous all the time,bifocals work great for me. Sorry about the leak but good your complaints got some action & a reduced bill.
Jeanette, great cartoons. I’m glad you’ve found a reasonable realtor
Joy, good to hear the meds are working
Margaret, I hope Gordon is feeling better soon
We are having good weather, not too hot but nice & the Gaks are having a riot with all their cousins( actually the GKs of DHs cousins)
Joy, I’m glad you saw the doctor & have pain meds.
Liz, terrible about the bridge in Italy
Daralene, sounds like a terrible storm, better to stay home than drive intofloided areas.
May not make lunch with sponsor. Have been awake since midnight with pain from armpit to midchest about a palms width from top of invision to lower chest. Tried tylenol and lidocaine. Not much relief. Its not heart. Maybe liver. Hoping cancer not back. At times just moving takes breath away with pain. Staying still and meditating help. Cant decide ER or call surgeon and make appt for today.
You better see a doctor ASAP
Sorry the smoke is spoiling your time there. How's the foot?
It’s ok, not swollen so sitting around has helped
Smoke not quite so bad today
Pearl, sorry your DH had a fall, good thing he didn’t hurt you on the way down or do any real damage.
Daralene, I’m glad you didn’t get any flooding in your house.
It’s terribly Smokey here, burns your eyes & gives me a headache. The GKs are having a great time with all the cousins.
Not great wifi here so I’m just mostly reading along
That foot doesn't sound good Bonnie- have you had it checked?
Sounds like the workshop was a bit of a disappointment. At elast you enjoyed the chance to catch up with other people.
I haven’t gone to the Dr, if it’s not better in a few days I guess I’ll see about getting it X-rayed
Very pretty & I like things longer too
I haven’t read through all the pages of this topic to know if someone already suggested this but I have read that using cheap hair conditioner when washing wool will make it less scratchy.
I think felted mitts & hats would be a great use of it for charities
I always sleep worse if I have to be up early, suppose I'm always afraid of oversleeping.
I think most people are like that
I think I’m almost packed up for the lake, filled the fridge & got clothes organized, just have to water my pots & put the drip bottles in.
I sure hope I don’t have to chase the kids too much as my foot is swollen. I dropped the hitch from the quad trailer on it last week, put me right it my knees when I did it but it didn’t look too bad at the time. Since then it’s been getting blacker across the whole top of my foot & the last 2 days it’s been swollen after I’ve been on it too much. I need to quit being such a klutz😄😄
We walked in some rough ground last night at the plant seminar so I think that’s why it’s bad this morning. I was a little disappointed in how much information we got but hopefully she will email some more info, I had thought she would give some sort of handout but not. She told us about drying things for various teas, fireweed, alfalfa, dandelion & using purslane, lambs quarters (we call that pigweed) & chickweed ãs salad greens- I can’t see DH being happy if I tried to feed him that. The pigweed tastes OK but the others were bitter. She also told us about using plantain as a “spit poultice”. Chew the leaves & place on the wound, will promote healing.
There was a potluck supper after which was really good & I got to visit a few people I haven’t seen for a while
Well, not caught up but have to get off as the rep... (
I borrow e-books when we go on the Harley, one less thing to fit in a small bag.
Have fun with your cousin .& safe travels to Ohio.
I’m glad your back is so much better now.
