Well....yesterday really wasn't much better then the past few days! I'm doing the best I can to rest and get better! :o) I haven't felt this bad in awhile! lol :o) When I'm sick...thats when everything will flare up! My fibro and ms is kicking my butt along with this cold/flu thingy I have! Geesh!
I sent out a card to Krissy and John. I've been praying for them as well as Simon and others in J-Land. I also asked my daughter if she could donate blood. I forgot...she just got a tattoo a month ago and she has to wait 6-12 months before she can donate again. :o( She donates blood regularly anyhow, so I knew to go to her. :o) Next time I see my son, I'll ask him as well. :o)

I got a call yesterday afternoon from my doctor. My blood tests came back already....and he's putting me on a stonger medicine for my cholesterol! :o( I guess the readings were very high again. Which once again puts me in the heart attack/stroke factor! He wants me to go on a low fat diet....which I've been on for some time now. So...I honestly don't know what to do. My daughter told me that what ever kind of diet that I am put on, she will eat the same way with me so I won't be alone doing it! :o) How sweet is that?! :o) I'm so proud of both my kids! :o) So...that was news that I was not expecting to hear! Back to the drawing board! lol :o) I'll just back track and see what and how I eat, and just go from there! :o)
I got up way too early again...I did however, get 3 1/2 hours of sleep! :o) More then I was expecting! :o) I didn't do anything yesterday...sure didn't feel up to it at all. My best friend called me and asked if she could come over...that was something else I wasn't :o) She works so many hours, I really don't see her that often anymore. But...She's off for a few days because she broke her foot while on the job!!! OUCHIE! Boy does her foot look horrible! I feel bad for her. Like she the both of us...we really make a pair! Because if one of us isn't hurt...the other one gets hurt! lol :o) When we're out because you'll want to get your camcorder out! We are like Lucy and Ethal! lol Too funny! :o)
My daughter came home early yesterday. I guessthe amusement park was closed! I couldn't believe it! So...she visited with her dad and other brother and sisters for awhile and came back home. This is August..who would have thought it would have been closed?! :o) Oh well! :o) There will be other days she can go. :o)
By the way...if there is anyone still playing the post card game, let me know....I still have a lot I can send out! :o)
I recieved a letter from Lisa yesterday! YAY! It finally arrived! :o) Thank you Lisa...I will write back to you! :o) Loved the pictures! :o)
Well...I'm going to go for now....have a great day! May God bless you all! Thanks for your emails and your comments! They help me through my days! :o)

I do hope and pray you get your health problems sorted out soon, I know what a worry health can be. I cannot donate blood because of being diabetic and all the medication I am on.  I am praying hard for Krissy and particularly John as I know many people are.  I wish I could have joined in this postcard thing but I cannot return them because this area just does not have postcards, used to years ago but nobody sells them now. I could not expect to receive without sending but I have enjoyed hearing about others getting them and seeing pictures.

Hi my friend,

I just have to say this about low fat and cholesterol.  Please read the book entitled The Cholesterol Myth.  My cholesterol is lower by eating a low carb diet.  Initially it rose but the end effect of cutting carbs is lower LDL and higher HDL.  This is a good thing.  Low fat just doesn't cut it.  Lower carbs will help fibro as well.

This is coming from experience.  Please read up on it and challenge your Doc.

I really hope you feel better soon. It sucks to be sick. An amusement park closed during the same that's not a very smart move on the parks part.

Hugs, Angela
