Helping My Cause
My husband and brother in law worked all day Tuesday removing overgrown bushes and trimming trees. Now you can see the front door. There's a large resident toad that is unsure what has happened lucky for him they left a few bushes. I like how the house is shaping up inside and outside.
I know I'm not supposed to wish for Fall but that's where my mind is going these days and if I mentally stay there it's going to be a long time for mid-September to show up.
On Tuesday I met my new to me family doctor who is newish doctor and seems young (but I'm 'old'). He was the doctor I saw at express care the Friday before who sent me to ER who then sent me home saying I need to see my primary care doctor which I didn't have until mid September. One of the downsides of moving is establishing medical care, the appointments are scheduled 1-2 months out. Anyways, my new primary care doctor just joined the practice and got me into the schedule (I was his first patient), I really, really liked him. He has tweaked my blood pressure medicine and ordered more blood tests and now I wait four weeks to see if the tweak helps with my headaches and blood pressure. So far, I'm feeling much better. I think that's a good sign.
To help my cause, I've been watching my salt intake and added sugar intake. What a slog. I cannot tell you how much I LOVE salt. I've resumed exercising the past two weeks and hope to get out walking again if the humidity and high temperatures go down.
My body has betrayed me during this move. First a flare then a health hiccup. Maybe I'm done showboating and can be a boring person again.
Poor Frodo has had a rough couple of days, he is terrified of thunderstorms, which have occurred three days in a row. He pants and paces and digs into the carpet. I do my best to swaddle him, shut the curtains and doors and blare the TV to drown out the thunder while avoiding his snippy attitude. I'm going to go deaf but these techniques seem to work. What we do for the pets!
