Did I mention, my DDiL, Kim, rolled her car over on her way to work the first of the week? She's fine but the car is shot. She drove Rob's truck down south where she's training for her new job. (management at Walmart). Rob borrowed Leilani's Neon ........so they don't have to rush into buying a car.
Then Don's sister, Lorie, messed up her car on her way out New Year's Eve!
I tried to fall leaving Don & Marsha's on Sunday evening and caught myself on the mirrors of the vehicles I was between! So Monday I had an appointment with my Dr. to follow up on my blood pressure. We've been having a bit of trouble getting it controlled. It was really high when I went in! I had a headache that I woke up with in the nite. I told her about the slip and she said my back was in spasm.....which she figured was the cause of the headache too. So there's another Rx for muscle relaxing! Then..........on top of everything else, she was listening to my lungs and heart and told me my heart beat was irregular! She did an EKG on the spot and told me I have atrial fibrilliation. I believe I've had it for years but it comes and goes. This was just the first time I had it while in her office. But now I get to be on blood thinners (so I don't clot and stroke from the oddball rythum). I had 8 vials of blood drawn today and chest X-rays. I'm scheduled for an echo cardiogram and I have a date with a cardiologist!
2009 isn't starting out like I had hoped!!!
The kids have had their Christmas break extended by 2 more days, so far, due to icy back roads. They aren't complaining.
Lei is getting her breast lift tomorrow! If the kids stay home again, I'll go with her and Don........(so the big kids can watch the little kids......not to get away from them!!)
Tonite I went to see Kimmy to get my hair cut and afterwards I stopped by Meijers to see what they had that I needed. I picked up a few things I'd missed while grocery shopping earlier this week and then I found a 42" plasma TV that was $400 off! I called Loni and asked her to either talk me into it or out of it! She did and we have a new TV. It is actually going in the girls room for their new game system. The Wii is a tiny little thing but when you play you need enough room to swing a bat or bowling ball or tennis racket.........you get the idea. They've been using the sunroom and my couch keeps getting pushed further and further back. I'm wide enough that I keep bruising my hips on the couch trying to walk between that and the bookcases. It'll get really bad being on a blood thinner! The men next door will have to bring it up for us.
So that's the latest from the north cabin~
