We are having trouble with Astound who is taking over Grande and we have internet but we can't get our email. This is the worse time for us to have no email. I called and talk to a young person in PA who kept apologizing because they gave no way of telling me when I can use it again.

I've slept all day. I wonder if that is a way of escape all the things that are going on right now. I have no message from NP as to what I'm to do Monday. So I have a filling I want get treatment until Tuesday which will be okay since they have my treatment day to be Tuesday's.

Since they keep assuring me that protein I eat doesn't affect or cause the protein in urine, I am going to go back on a protein plan.

I think I'm going to bed early. Goodnight.

Trish I dont think you eat a lot of protein. I wonder about the people who eat carnivore. Do they get protein in their urine? From what I've read its seems that it was being caused by dehydration since they said your kidneys are good. I say keep drinking water to keep your urine light but not cause retention. Then wait and see. You don't eat excessive protein.

I'm down to 174 today, down 3 lbs. I know these are fluid fluctuations but they are annoying. I didn't get up til 9:45 so getting weighed later could make a difference. I will be careful what I eat today so I don't feel bloated. Thats a terrible feeling.

We are not due for any precipitation for a week and out temps will be warmer than a typical February. I think winter will be back, though. Its not done with us.

By the way, I think 17 lbs lost is great for your sister. I would be very happy with that!

The result of my 24 hr test was posted on my portal this morning and I wouldn't have a clue as to what it means but having worked in hospital DH does and from the conversation he had with the NP yesterday and what they were looking for, this showed that my kidneys are fine. So now I hope they will either send me a message for me to have my infusion Monday or Tuesday. I would rather do it Tuesday and I would be on schedule since they are changing me to Tuesdays for my infusions.

Yesterday when I met the NP, she said that she saw that I am on Maintenance. I don't know why but that sounds good to me. Now I work at being healthy again and by the grace of God I will get my miracle.

I had my eggs, bacon and toast with orange juice for breakfast. We had pork roast with salad, green peas and for dessert we had strawberries and blueberries with cool whip. I have a plan for supper only if I need it. I want to do some fasting so won't eat when I'm not hungry. All my exercise has been done for this week. I've been blessed.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Carol Sue Your weather sounds good so I would imagine you will be going to the casino in the next few days.

Trish, DH wanted to go yesterday and again today. I guess he will keep asking until I say yes. I tell him to go ahead but he won't go without me.

We went to TX roadhouse. I knew it would be busy on a Saturday. I called ahead and got on waitlist so we had a short wait. 10 minutes. It was worth it. I had the ribs app with baked sweet potato. Nice little meal for me.

Trish I wish someone could interpret the test results for you. I usually just Google each item to see what it's supposed to be.

Im having trouble with my fit bit connecting to the appp. Makes me mad!

Getting mad helped! I got it connected.

___________

I connected MFP to my Fitbit. But on MFP today my calories were 1100 but on Fitbit it says 1500. I don't know why.

____________
I looked again and now Fitbit says 1184 calories in which is correct. I don't know why it said 1500 before. Fit it says CV I burned 1243 so I burned more than I ate with 3 hours more to go today. I will burn more but I hope I don't eat more.

Very poor sleep last night. Tossed and turned. Scale still at 174.

I know he will want to go to the casino today. I don't want to but can't say no much longer without repercussions. He encouraged me to buy my exerciser. I have to be nice.

Temps going to 50 today. Not February in PA. People will be wearing shorts. Not Me!

__________________________

He asked if I wanted to go. His first mistake was to ask. I said no, end of story. He should tell me we are going. Don't give me a choice!

After we got our landline phone restored we lost our caller I'd that comes over the tv. We can't figure out how to fix it. I read instructions online but can't figure it out. Also,, on our tv screen where it shows the temperature it changed to Celsius and we can't get Fahrenheit back. Everything is computerized and we are old.

Then on my cellphone I lost the icon to make a call, so its a phone but I can't make a call. I want to go back to 1960. Things were so much easier.

I still have no idea what to do about tomorrow so I am going to get up and call to see what the test results me and as when I am having my next infusion. If nothing else, I will ask if we cab do it Tuesday instead of tomorrow. I hate it when things are so screwed up and is in such confusion.

I hate dealing with computers etc especially when it comes to business because it just isn't as efficient and when it is messed up there is no one to talk to. I've slept all day and I think it just means I don't have to deal with this stuff when I'm asleep.

I'm sure you will need to give in and go to the casino in a day or two.

Hoping for a good nights sleep.

He won't want to go Monday or Tuesday. It will be Wednesday or Friday. Today we have to return the old modem to Comcast, go to Walmart, Goodwill, and maybe Target. They are all in the same area. Maybe Aldi's too.

Im delaying my fluid pill until we come home so I don't have any trouble while we are out.

I slept ok but my heart was racing. It does that if I lay on my right side. Thats the only way I can see the tv. If I go to my left side my heart rate slows down and I sleep.

Scale still says 174. I made a goal to lose 4 lbs a month. I have to try harder.

I hope you get your health issues all straightened out. I hope they explain your test results and they are good.

Carol Sue, Sounds like you had a busy day. I'm sorry your weight hasn't moved down but I'm sure it will soon.

That is strange about your heart racing when on your right side and slowing down when laying on your left. I asked DH about that because iit doesn't sound good to me. He suggests you should go see your cardiologist to be sure everything is okay. I can't remember if you had stents or valve replacement, but he said if laying on one side or the other may put more weight on the heart causing the valve to be compromised (smashed) so there isn't enough blood getting through. This will cause your heart to race to compensate. The best thing to do now is to not lay on your right side then go to the cardiologist to have an echocardiogram so they can see what is causing this. Of course, we don't know if this is the problem but it would be good to have it checked out. We will be praying for you.

My weight was back down to 156 this morning. I'm not setting a goal as to how much to lose at a time. I'm just thankful to still be in the 150s and hope I can keep it there. I ate only 2 meals yesterday and today.

I did so much research on protein in the urine and couldn't really figure out if I was in trouble or not. No one calling to tell me anything only made me worry more. I had called the oncology office this morning and I never heard from anyone. Finally, after not hearing from anyone, I wrote a message to my doctor himself. It wasn't long until I got a phone call from the scheduler, and she told me to be there tomorrow afternoon for my infusion. I told her about the mistake that was made on the schedule for this morning and the rest of this month and she said she would take care of it. This has worked out okay because now my infusions will be done on Tuesdays.

Doctor said that the medicine I take can cause kidney problems but he will keep a close watch on it, but for now I can keep taking it. I will start taking only one fluid pill a day and be sure to stay hydrated.

Trish, I also researched protein in urine and there were many possible causes. But dehydration was one of the causes. So drinking more water should help. When I was in the hospital I was on Lasix through my IV. but when I came home they switched me to Bikes which I had never heard of. I started with one a day but after I ended up back in the hospital they changed me to one twice a day.I don't know what the difference is between Lasix and Bumex.

I have had the racing heart on my right side for years. I just switch to the other side. I didn't have the pain in my arm with it before I had the procedure. I know I have one blocked artery that they can't fix. He said other veins and arteries will take over. I don't go to the cardiologist again until June. If I have issues before then I will go to the ER. I had no problem last night because I didn't lay on my right side.

My new exerciser is scheduled to come today between 10 am and 2 pm. I hope its easy to assemble. DH never follows directions. He just starts putting pieces together. I read the directions for him while he does the work. We have assembled a lot of things. There is a YouTube video to show you how. We have the space all ready for it.

It doesn't bother me that the scale stayed 174 for 3 days as long as it didn't go up. Today it went to 172, then went to 173. I go on again to try to get to172 but no, it stayed 173. So down 1 lb to 173. I would love to be in the 150s with you!!!

Im reading a book about brown fat and how to increase it. It burns white fat. One way is to exercise. There is a lot of technical info in the book that I don't understand. I want to go back thru and read it again. It talks about hormones that are activated that cause fat to be burned. There are some I never heard of. It also said to eat protein, fiber and fat, but not excessively. It says certain foods burn fat. One is whey protein, so if your shakes contain whey protein they burn fat. It says to eat up to 2000 calories but that probably includes men. The lower limit is 1300. DH and I were laughing because it says to keep your thermostat low so you are a little cold. Being cold helps burn fat. After his mother passed away his brother kept the temp at 55 and the house was freezing. He did not lose weight. His brother just keeps gaining and gaining. In the house he had 3 floors with 3 flights of stairs. Now he has a trailer with no steps. He doesn't realize he was exercising going up and down those stairs.

We are still trying to fix our caller id. We got the temp changed from C to F. It is 31 degrees right now. We might have to call Comcast about the caller ID.

DH is cooking breakfast so I will eat eggs soon. I was hungry during the night but I wont get up to eat. My stomach just growled!

After 2 calls to Comcast our caller I'd is working again.

My exerciser didn't come. I looked on Tracking and its in Ohio and says it will be delivered tomorrow. DH usually likes to go to the casino on Wednesday but I will try to talk him into going Friday instead. He likes Friday too but it is more crowded. He has a Dr appointment on Friday morning with the GP. He hates it but if I tell him we can go to the casino afterwards it will soften the blow.

My weight was 155.6 this morning, but probably will be up tomorrow because we had Long John Silvers today and although I didn't eat much today, my sodium was over the 2300 mg MFP recommends. But at least I know why and that it will go back down in a day or two. I did all my exercises before we left to go to oncology and my infusion went very well. I would have gone to the store with DH after but my appointment was so late that. I told DH to go while I was under treatment because my appointment was at 2pm but it takes so long for them to get me started with the medicine because they mix it once I get there and they give me saline for a while when they are preparing it and I knew we were going to be really late if he waited for me to go with him. As it turned out, we got home after 5pm. We ate and I fell asleep soon after.

Carol Sue I am glad your ID done on your tv and sorry your exerciser didn't come today. I hope your DH will wait until Friday to go to the casino.

I'm going to call or text my beautician tomorrow and ask if she can cut my hair so it will grow with a shape. My hair is finally long enough to work with to get it to have a shape to it. Since I can't have a perm until I can be off the medicine, I want to shape it so I can wear it in the old page boy.

Hope we have a good nights sleep and a great week.

Goodnight.

Trish, I'm so glad your treatment went well. You are lucky that you can get LJS fish. We miss it since ours closed. There are 2 in neighboring towns but we don't want to go that far. We want it back. We like Arbys but not as well as LJS. Otherwise we can't find fish that we both like close by. I love fish.

I checked tracking and my exerciser is out for delivery today. DH will have to move the car so they can bring it up to the garage. It is 130 lbs.

Scale is still 173. I need a miracle, or need to improve my lifestyle.

DH insists we are going to the casino today after the delivery. It says from 12:30 to 4:30. I sure hope its early. I don't want to go late. I tried to talk him into Friday but he says its too crowded Friday. So next time he wants to go on Friday I will tell him too crowded. Im tired of waiting for them. I want to take a shower but don't want to miss the delivery.

It just arrived. It was a young woman driver and DH helped her. So we will be leaving soon. Putting it together tomorrow.

I couldn't get out of bed this morning I was so relaxed. I don't if it was the treatment meds or not or maybe I was just so calm after being able to have the treatment. Weight was up 1.4 lbs this morning but then I knew it would be. Once I got up and once I started moving around I started feeling better and even got all my exercises done. I hope my weight comes back down soon.

I'm glad you finally got your exercise machine came. Sorry your DH still wanted to go to the casino, but at least you will have it done for this week.

The casino was ok. DH didn't win but didn't lose. Brought his money back home. He said he had fun but he was ready to come home early. I ate a slice of pizza there and it didn't set well. Then DH got a hot dog and fries for the ride home. I ate a few fries . they were good but my stomach was upset. When we got home I felt like I was going to throw up but didnt. I went to the bathroom then felt a little better. I slept ok

Scale was up .2. Not bad but I'm still overeating . I will improve that. I never feel hungry anymore. Thats how I know I'm over eating. I need to eat less so I get hungry in between meals. I lose better when I do that. I no longer eat til I'm stuffed. I've broken that habit.

DH might want to goto the casino again because he didn't lose but I will say no because he said he only wanted to go Wednesday. We don't argue, but he just gets miserable.

I enjoyed reading in the food court. But I should not have eaten the pizza. It was calling me!!

_______________

We are almost finished ssembling the exerciser. We have the pedals,and seat attached and now,we are taking a rest before attaching the handles. Its not too bad. Im reading instructions and referring to the video while he's doing the work. I'm helping a bit, holding things in place while he puts screws and washers in. He said the worst part was getting it out of the box because its 133 lbs. (wish I was 133 lbs). And getting it through the doorway into the exercise room. He made the doorway when he built the room so its not standard size I don't think. It only has a half door, like a gate. I have a feeling that we may never get some of my exercise equipment back out of the room when the time comes because most of it was assembled in that room. When my son in law took the weight station they took it apart. If we sell the house it might come with complete exercise facility.

_______,__,,_____,,,,

Were finished. Its 6pm. I don't know what time we started but we took a break in the middle. I'm tired. I tried it out. Its ok. Naturally not as nice as the ones at Cardiac Rehab which are commercial grade, but fine for an at home model. I will have to figure out how to adjust the seat and the tension.

Oh Trish, you didn't post yesterday. Now I worry about you when you don't post. I hope you were just busy or maybe you fell asleep.

Scale us up 1 lb to 174 again. DH got pizza and onion rings yesterday. I didn't want pizza after not feeling good after eating the casino pizza so I just ate onion rings. They made me gassy and I didn't feel well after eating them either. I wanted a baked potato but we were out of potatoes. Its funny how you get hungry for a particular food. I didn't eat any protein. Just carbs and fat. Thats probably why I gained. I think I took my second fluid pill. We gave the leftover pizza to son in law.

Son in law is coming again today because we have a lot of Styrofoam packing from the exercise machine. He is going to throw it in the dumpster at the firehall. Its way too much to put out for garbage. Someone who does crafts would love to have it but I don't know of anyone.

I hope I get to exercise today. I'm itching to get started again. I feel like such a couch potato. I need body movement, to stimulate my muscles.

Sleep was just so so. I got up at 6:30 for the bathroom , made coffee and let the dog out. Now I'm wide awake and won't go back to sleep. I will read for awhile until DH gets up. We need a few things from Walmart. We forgot to get bottled water.

I hope to see a post from you Trish, and also Madeliene. She hasn't posted lately either.
