Hi Rosie
I think the weather man listened to me at least he didnt send heavy snow and it only started about the time I was leaving so that was OK.
I didnt have an appointment with the Dr yesterday but the nurse who took the blood sample thought it would be better if I did see him and she went and spoke to him and I only had to wait approx 10minutes before he called me. He wasnt very happy that the rash/swelling etc had become worse and I was told to double the diruetics I am prescribed for at least the next two days to find out if it would reduce the swelling and although I do have another appointment with him on Monday he said he wanted to see me again before then. He wanted me to go tomorrow morning but I couldnt because its then I go to Hospital to get the 12 hour BP monitor fitted and I wouldnt get back home until about lunch time and he isnt there in the afternoon so he said he will phone me tomorrow morning at 8.30am to find out how things are and if my legs are no better he is going to set up an afternoon appointment for me with one of the other Dr's. So far there is only a little change although my feet are not as swollen -mind you I did what I was told and had a very restful day sitting with my feet raised.
So I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out the outcome. Fingers crossed there will be an improvement.
Off to bed now because I have an early rise tommorow morning.
God Bless
Emmy xx

I hope that the new meds reduce your swelling. I know from past experience that swelling in legs and feet is not fun!

Well that's another thing over! The 12 hours are finally up and I've just taken off the BP monitor-What a relief Dancing It's been taking my BP every 15 minutes since this morning and if it was time for the BP to be taken and I was moving about after a few minutes it would go off again so I set my timer and made sure I was sitting down when the 15 minute interval was just about due Very Happy
I have also tried to keep a record of what i was doing during the day when the BP monitor was working and I even used the hypnosis cd during the day just to find out if it did make a difference. Problem is I was only able to see the first two readings after that its recorded in the machine but hopefully on my next visit I'll get to see the print out.I was really pleased because the nurse said the first reading was good so fingers crossed maybe I just need Paul McKenna Think and finally no medication Pray
Dr did phone me this morning and decided I should go this afternoon to have my legs seen by the other Dr. So I had to drive the car with the drat machine on my arm, luckily its only approx 10minutes drive to my Health Centre so that journey was timed down to the last second to make sure it didnt start taking my BP when I was driving Anxious
It was good news this afternoon rash seemed to be on the mend and my feet were'nt too swollen then either, but I'm feeling a bit let down tonight because the rash is coming back and my legs and feet are swelling again.

I agree with you Gil and I hope you dont get that again because as you say it's definately not fun.

But tomorrow I'll try sitting down for longer and as my two wee pooches didnt get many cuddles today It's a good excuse to make it up to them tomorrow Kitty&Smiley Kitty&Smiley (I know this is a cat but my dogs are just
about that size Very Happy Very Happy)
The weather forecast is still not too good and we've had a little snow tonight so just hope it doesnt come during the night yet I shouldnt complain because other areas not too far from here are having worse and power cuts too into the bargain.

Well that's me finished lamenting Silenced and no more negative reports will be forthcoming I promise you that. We do want this to be a 'Happy Forum' and be able to laugh - just the same its very nice for me to have friends like you who read my ramblings and wish me luck. Thank you!
God bless
Emmy xx big hug big hug Bye Good Night

Be patient with that rash Emmy.

Glad to hear the blood pressure reading was good. I had a bladder infection last July and the doc said my reading was high. He said that sometmes it wil be when you have an infection. I was to go back within a couple of weeks and never did. Darn, my blood pressure readings were always excellent.

I've got a female check-up due on March 5th with a new ob/gyn. Haven't had a female check-up in 13 years. Figured if nothing's bothering me why go?? I got thru menopause just fine without any medications and dont want to start taking any now.

Sleep well and think about joining Facebook. Oh yes, and it's been snowing all day.....still is.

I'm smiling today!
This morning I had a nice run to the hospital using the hospital transport, so I wasnt driving, Not to see a Dr but just to hand in the BP monitor, there was bright sunshine although it was still cold today, but the scenery was just beautiful with the hills covered in snow in the background.

In the afternoon I had my visit to my own Dr, He was really pleased with my progress and my blood sample seems to be OK too.

So after that, as I was driving my own car, I decided on the spur of the moment that I would treat myself with a drive into town and having a walk round a new store that opened up not long ago, I was only going to get one product but I came out with a full trolley---but all healthy food-- at least almost all healthy Anxious

When I got home I had a phone call from my daughter in France and so far their weather, although they,ve had some strong winds, has been nothing like what has happened in other areas of France. That was a relief!

So now I'm going to sit down and read for a while before going to bed and the 'wicked thing' I bought is still in its sealed package!!!!
Applause Applause Applause I'm giving myself a pat on the back right now Dancing Dancing Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hope everything is ok with everyone
God Bless

I'm glad to know you had a great day and happy about your progress! Dancing
And I'm also glad to see that your daughter is safe: I've seen on TV what happened in France and that's been scary. Confused

Oh Rosie just wouldnt you like to know. Tell you what once I've opened it and sampled it I'll post you a photograph. Meantime I'm trying very hard to do this Silenced Silenced Silenced and I dont mean 'silenced' I'm meaning to try to stop my mouth opening when I'm near that package Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I think at the finish I may need to use 'ducktape' and not sellotape.

Gil There's no chance of them findng out IF I did do that. Applause Applause Applause They live too far away from me, and if any of my neighbours 'phoned them, it would take them at least 30minutes to get here.--and by then I'd be back tucked up in bed Dancing Dancing Dancing
But guess you would be correct when you said

From the sounds of the "fight" that you have left in you, I'm sure you are getting better!
