One thing has dramatically changed for me, and I don’t know what caused it.
I’ve had lymphedema in my legs ever since that leg saving surgery about five years ago. It’s something you just take in stride grateful to keep your leg. The upper leg is so swollen that neither G nor I can get a compression stocking on it, but they fit on the lower legs. They work well too.
Now, all of a sudden, here I am with skinny legs and I’m sweating like a rain forest.
The doctor changed my meds. Added a vitamin too? Could that be it? G thinks it is the WW diet. Whatever it is, I am very grateful not to have to wear compression stockings on these hot humid days.
I have been sitting at the computer entering names in the Ancestry.com data base. I have many of the names in my old journals. I also have many of the privately printed family genealogies around here somewhere. Often when I am missing a date or further information, instead of looking it up, I find it online. What my grandfather’s spent laborious years compiling, I often have at the touch of a keyboard.
So far so good with this project.
- Himself: Packing for two days in Denver. He’ll talk to insurance companies.
- Herself: IBS yesterday. Not good. Today is grocery shop and run errand day.
- Reading: Bought DC books and a plasticized map. Bought a Moon book too but already owned it.
- Balance: Taking the book back.
