Where do I begin?? I better start with the waffles. Mine were made with only golden flax seeds ground into a meal more like flour.

I'm so lucky to have a guy who doesn't mind doing housework. When my knee is acting up he is doing everything from dishes to vacuuming the whole house. He takes care of washing is own clothes and bedding. That's only the inside. He's my gardner as well. I'm so spoiled. I love to do the housework together. We split up the chores to get done fast.

Carolyn your kitty is a very young looking 15 year old. What a little beauty. Would love to know where you found your cupcake recipe. Dh loves to have a little treat in the evening.

MK, what a little stinker for driving without his waiting time. Dog house time for sure!

Debby what fun to have your Skype session with Dh. I bet you are walking lighter now that you too have had your chat. When will he be home? It shouldn't take him too long now.

Have a nice rest of your evening. I'm full from grilled tri tip and salad. Now I'm enjoying some Good Earth orig. tea. Love the spicy taste of cinnamon.

Hi.

Sharon, go to the Recipe Bulletin Board and the chocolate cupcakes are there. I don't know how to copy and paste on my phone. You are lucky to have such a helpful dh.

Sharon, PM me your address, I am packing tomorrow and coming to steal your Dh away from you. I will be very fair, I will leave mine for you. Forget all the bad things I have said about him, he is absolutely wonderful.

Good morning ladies.

Still at 148 this morning.

Debby, when will your dh be home? That is assuming Buffy doesn't kidnap him on the way.

I sure hope everyone is better today. Dh and I have been lucky so far with the flu, even though we had the shot.

Exercise, then meeting this morning. Chocolate cupcake and coffee for breakfast. Life is good.

Have a great morning everyone.

Carolyn you're the new Buffy - keeping your low lows. 148 is so great and someday soon I'll join you in the 140s.

We've had the flu shot and are leaving in a few minute, but not before I wave goodbye to you all. Good luck keeping Buffy in line, but I'll still check in. Found out the father of the bride actively has the flu right now.

yay

Will check in later - hope all of you have a good day and Buffy I hope today is another day of unremarkable BP.

Bye Judy although I am late to the party. Up in the middle of the night, then back to bed and didn't want to get up but DD is coming today.

Debby, glad you got to see and talk to DH, is he in the states yet?

Haven't seen Sharon on here this morning, she must be trying to hide her DH

Carolyn, I am soooooo happy for you for holding onto your new low! Great job.

How did you know. I have him hidden and you can't have him.

Carolyn good to see that number is taking you serious. You're my mentor.

Have a wonderful trip Judy. Enjoy California for a little bit. Stay away from that flu bug though.

Dh just put the worm farm back outside. Boy are they getting pampered because of the extremely cold nights we've been having.

Heading for the recipe board to find the cupcake recipe. Have a great day!

Thanks Buffy, Yes, DH is at his sister's right now, enjoying some good family time. Hope you're feeling better! Your sense of humor is sure good!

Really felt like sleeping in this morning, its one of those "low-pressure" kind of days out. But I did have a clear mind & made quite the progress on my books at work. I can see taking them to the accountant soon. Will need to get to that stage at home too...

Well I had DH take me to my nail appt where I proceeded to pass out and here I am in ER again. So far they think that maybe lowering g my BP so quickly from the high it was at might have caused this, they r keeping me overnite and I am just waiting for my room to be ready. My new cardiologist is already on my case and has ordered a chemical stress test. Was glad to have him here. Sigh. Have already had EKG and yet another cat scan

Dd2 is picking up dd from airport and will take good care of her

Wondering which test he will do next to try to get to the bottom of this. Yes, now we have found my heart walls are thickened but that didn't happen overnight so although we are now aware of that, we still have to figure out what caused BP that had been under control for a long time, suddenly decided to go AWOL. Just praying that he is one of the thorough ones. I did really like him, his staff and office and he is about 2 -3 miles from my house!

It has been almost 24 hours now that my BP has been in a safe range so hoping I feel better today. I am a little doped up from all the meds but better than as wiped out as I was.

Oldest DD is due tomorrow afternoon, I can't wait to see her. Last time I got to see her was in July.

Debby, sorry you weren't feeling well yesterday, hope you slept well last night and feel better today. And, hope DH made it to his sister's house.

I love to get a new computer and always start out with such good intentions that I am going to set "this" one up perfectly and have everything on it perfectly organized. Then I end up as always with pictures strewn all over the hard drive, bookmarks lost or misplaced, notes in picture albums, songs in someone else tunes, on and on and on.
A side effect of chronic hypertension. Your heart "muscled up" to handle all that excess pressure but it is not a positive thing. You are going to be light headed for quite a while as your body had adjusted to a higher pressure and it will take awhile to adjust.

Sandy, where are you going Feb 2nd? I leave the 2nd for the Dominican for a medical mission. We may run into each other at KCI!

I noticed that Debby! I'm glad he made it to the states. I worry about people traveling alone on highways no matter where they are, but I think I worry a bit more when they're out of the country.

You know what's funny Sandy? DH said once he got into the states, he everything was so smooth... didn't have all the stress of crazy drivers to watch out for & was even able to figure out how to use his GPS & actually look at it while driving to follow!!! This is huge! He's usually so stressed by traffic in cities that there's no way he could look at the GPS. Mexico "conditioned" him!

Cindy - is the heart "muscling up" a temporary thing? I mean, as BP is more consistently down, can it reverse itself?

Gosh, I leave town and Buffy passes out.

Safe in our hotel, ahi tuna salad for dinner last night. The waiter said the dressing was only a little sweet and was made with Splenda.

Able to buy eggs for our suite that has a little kitchen - I find it difficult to constantly look for restaurants.

Got to see my friends last night - the little sister of the mother of the bride. Now BOTH parents of the bride have the flu. I do not think I'll even be able to hug them. I don't know why I would go willingly into those germs... Sorry!

Beautiful weather here and so far have had a little fun and a nice visit. Will go out to Dana Point today to see the little sister again and my second mother!

Hello to everyone!

Just checking in, thnk if all tests come back ok that I will go home. So far just points to too much extra BP medicines too fast. Still no answer on why it spiked to begin with but at least they are ruling out thigs that could be wrong. If all is fine, then we will begin to work with meds to get the correct dosage. My one fear if they don't find anything is that I will go home to just the exact rise all over agaiin. Will discuss that with dr.

Hello everybody! DD made it in, sooo happy to see her.

Judy good to hear you are in So. Calif now. Too bad you can't have a mask to wear when you're close to the sickies. Wash your hands every chance you can.

Buffy just try to relax and keep those questions going to your doctor. So glad you checked in.

Debby I don't think I would be able to endure the Mexican drivers either. There's some wild stuff going on those roads.

Waving to Cindy, Carolyn and Sandy. Have a good day friends.

Thanks for the update Buffy. I'm glad there's nothing wrong but I wish they'd find something to fix, kwim? I'm sure they won't stop until they do. Have they done the stress test yet? And checked for blockage?
I'm sure it was great to see your DD. Enjoy your time with her. And keep us posted. {{ }}
