In Limbo

About the only significant change here is the weather. Cooler, Thank God. Me and arthritis don't do well in high humidity. Turned the air conditioner on for two days plus three ceiling fans and a floor fan. Two miserable nights with little sleep.

On the positive side, the blueberries are going gangbusters and I pick about a quart a day. Back hurts and horse flies just find me delicious.

Sweetie's return doctor appointment is Friday. Now has prostrate problems, blocked artery in his neck and very low blood pressure. I, on the other hand, have developed high blood pressure. Can't imagine why.

The lovely brother will be home from Jordan for 30 days but spend ONE night in his home town. So Dad will not have the few day visit with him that he expected. He's keeping a stiff upper lip over this news. I, if given the chance, would kick the shit out of my sibling. Arrogant, self-centered, philandering ass.

The man who bought property next to us has expressed interest in buying some of ours that adjoins us. We'll see what develops.

Given our health issues, I doubt that we will be able to "live the dream" as we originally envisioned it.

At days end, we're still grateful we're together. Now the challenge is to make the necessary adjustments to living life differently than we wanted to/.

Thanks all of you who have emailed and left comments. I really appreciate it. TTYL, Tresong

(small excerpt) Cayenne goes immediately into the bloodstream and adjusts the blood pressure from the top of the head, to the bottom of the feet, equalizing pressure over the whole body. This takes the high pressure, which causes rapid bleeding, away from the wound and clotting starts immediately.

Cayenne has been accepted by some of the orthodox medical profession, as mentioned in Merck Index, Maleria Medica and Pharmocology and other standard volumes.

You at least have had some time at your 'heaven on earth'. Good luck to you in your decisions.
If hubby has carotid artery surgery..make sure to get the best doc you can. Strokes happen even during surgery. That is when dad had his massive stroke , left paralyzed on one side , not able to do much of anything for himself. Mom said if they knew that the stroke would happen they would have not had the surgery and just let things come as they would. Dad also had prostate surgery about 5yrs before that and all went well with that. As far as the low blood pressure...he may need blood and it may be dehydration contributing to it. Have all your questions ready for the doc on Friday is what I am leading to. There is a lot to find out. He could be good as new if all works out well. It is just a lot to handle hearing it all at one time...don't give up. Medicine has come a long way and they can fix a lot of things they weren't able to before. B.
As far as the sibling...pfhhht. His loss.
Your neighbor may be just what you need at this time.

Infection can lead to dehydration causing low blood pressure. I only learned this the other day when I was told that is what happened to a friend's wife. B. Oh, I see, I didn't sign my last post ..oops.
