    Hello...I thought I should check in before anyone thought that perhaps I may be deceased also. @avoncallingu , what the hell next??!! How many years have you been fighting with the US social security department and omgoodness, all that income tax nonsense??!! Wouldn't surprise me it you took to drink, poor muffin. I hope they believe that you're not the ghost of Christmas past when you walk in!! Good luck with those idiots!!

    We had a wonderful day yesterday, and I absolutely recommend that KrisKringle "pass the present" game!! For a mere $10 each for our gifts, you'd think every dice roll was the most important thing happening that day! Hahaha!! I DID end up with my own gift which I fully intended to do anyway.......just one final roll of the dice could have taken it from me, but I was so lucky! We all had a really fun time with that nonsense!! Our GS is still down with his cold and cough, so he was rather quiet yesterday, but trying his best to play Santa and hand out the gifts, which we open one at a time, so it does take a while, but we've always done it that way, thanking the giver for each gift. He pooped out after about an hour and took himself to his room with his new switch thingy, poor kid. We left at 9:30 and our DD said that he put himself to bed as soon as we left. The inlaws stayed for about another hour.

    Today was a day of complete R&R for both of us, nibbling our way through left-overs, sweets...I'm almost looking forward to my January 2nd diet start-date. I may not feel the same way after a few days into it, but for now, hope springs eternal!

    I hope everyone had a safe, relaxing boxing day!! Did anyone else besides @walkonby dare to do any shoppping...or returning today?

    Thanks, Newfiescreech and Nat! Oddly, I am feeling better already!😄

    I have to find some time to make that trip to the States as soon as I can.

    Had a great visit with my friend and yummy supper and then played Rumoli. I remembered that I had played before and guess who won? We played with pennies which we left behind for the next game, of course.

    I did not do any shopping today.

    Am kind of running out of energy. Should head off to bed.

    Good night, my friends!

    Good morning, Happy Thursday!

    Nurse will come today, checkup was moved from Tuesday.
    So I have to be up and ready, because she can come any time after eight. That meant my husband couldn't sleep in today, either...

    I still had trouble getting to sleep last night - after the sleeping pill, the first sleep was only 15 minutes! I was still awake after two, but husband was too, so we had a snack. He had slept all evening, but didn't stay awake long, until I woke him at 7:30. I did sleep better towards morning.

    The new bed is feeling more comfy as I get used to it.

    Husband has a Dr appt this aft, then has to get blood work done as a check from his AAA surgery last year. He will go for a CT scan in Jan to ensure the mesh from the surgery is still in the right place. The doc appt today is unrelated to that, the Dr. requested he come in - I think about his hernia.

    Anyhow, on with the day. Coffee and breakfast.

    Enjoy the day, everyone!

    Nurse came not long after I posted. Another one new to me, she was awesome. She had last worked in cardiology at a hospital, switched to home care to get back to eight hour shifts.
    My BP is back up to 160, not dangerous, but not good.

    Nurse, and maybe others on the team?, said that I should consider getting into a hospital. I had been wondering about that already myself, but didn't know if I could just go in without an emergency. She said yes, what I would be going in with is classed as 'failure to thrive' - a term I have only associated with babies and children.

    She said to think about it over the next while, I didn't necessarily have to wait until I see my Dr. again, but I could. They are obviously concerned with the physical deterioration, but if it's left way too long, it would start affecting my psychologically because of the isolation. True dat...

    So I have already started making lists...

    @Natalka , I believe that the right people show up in our lives exactly when they should, and I think your new nurse, with a fresh perspective on your condition, has done just that. I'm relieved to hear that you're taking her assessment of you as "Failure to thrive" very seriously. I'm sure it's not something she'd say lightly, particularly with her experience with cardiac patients. She likely reviewed your history in great detail, also.
    I know how easy depression can set in when being isolated in a room for weeks at a time while everyone else is 'out there' enjoying full lives and I even knew mine would end when my injury healed! For you, not knowing if you'll walk again, live normally again, it must be depressing and terribly frightening. And not being at all mobile puts you at risk for other issues that are even more serious...atrophy of your muscles, pneumonia from not being mobile...Enough is quite enough, and frankly it's been enough for too long!

    Please consider her advice and get some REAL help. So far you've made no progress except that they're keeping you alive.

    Sorry if I'm overstepping here, but if you lived here, I'd have been banging down the door of your doctor's office until something was done to improve your health and your life. Just being kept breathing isn't thriving, and it's no life.

    We all care about you, Nat......and we want you to get well soon!
