I've been sitting in my recliner with the laptop surfing, emailing, reading blogs, myspaces, and getting caught up with friends. Whew. We lead busy cyber lives. I have to admit, recently I have met some wonderful women that I never would have known existed had it not been for the internet. :)
Why am I sitting in my recliner?? I know, I know.. i'm usuall up and doing all the things that don't get done cause I"m working my fingers to the bone during the day. Well.. the day before yesterday I started feeling bad. Actually, the puffiness started the week I went for 'ritas. The salt, ya know. Then I ate watermelon with salt. And I normally don't salt things. I cook with salt, but never add it after it's on my plate. So the day before yesterday I started with puffy feet not going away, a headache and pressure in my head. I figured it was the heat and wth Rich gone I don't go outside much cause it's too hot! And I have been working a lot lately. Then it dawned on me that my meds have a fluid pill in them and I haven't been "going" like normal. Hmm.. Today the head was still pounding and feeling like i was 1000 feet under the sea. Not normal.
I decided to pop over to Kmart to try the blood pressure machine. YIKES! I dunno what the top number was, but the bottom was screaming 114. Now, working in the medical field.. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I high-tailed it to my doctor. Everyone gone except for the clerks. GRR. Head to urgent care. On yah.. it was down to 100 now.. and then to 98! The doctor was very nice and calmed my fears and told me to doubleup on my meds to get some of the fluid out, watch my bp over the next few days and see my doctor so he can adjust my meds should this be an ongoing problem and not just due to my eating salt, getting too much take out and sucking down coffee since my hunny is not here to slap my hand and keep me walking a straight line LOL
So, I was elevating my feet in the chair and catching up on everyone.
I have been staring at my kombucha tea every chance I get. And it was not doing anything. The big one looked like a stingray floating around with the "wings" dipping into the tea. Hmm. Nothing was happening. Even a seamonkey would have been exciting at this point. Nodda.
Today? There is a film covering the tea now! A baby!!!! So, I guess it's working. Saturday will be day 5 and i can sample it. I have green tea and then green and raspberry tea. I have a few friends who seem interesting in sampling some. Maybe they'll take a baby and make their own! Spread the love.
