We've had a few strange days here at home. I've spent part of the day thinking about how much I should share.
First off we've decided to get rid of the Alfa and downsize. One of the reasons we are unloading everything out of the ALFA. We are getting older and it is just getting to be too much to handle. We are finding stuff in there that we completely forgot existed. Probably put some things in there for our first trip in it and then never used them again. We didn't get everything out of it when it was in front of the house so now we're having to go to the storage lot, put everything in the car and then drag it out of the car and put it in the garage until we decide what to do with it. Throw it out? Bring it in the house and use it? Put it in the shed and see if it will find a place in a smaller RV? This is as bad as when we moved.
We've been looking at some 30 foot Class Cs. But haven't made up our minds yet,. Maybe we'll just travel in the future in the car. Or maybe we won't do any long distance traveling, We keep jumping around in our thinking.
Before we went to Mexico this year we found a new doctor here in Vegas. He put me on high blood pressure medication. I was highly indigent about that. I'd NEVER had high blood pressure - it was probably because of the busy summer we had - with the move and my surgery - . He didn't agree with me and managed to scare me with words like stroke and heart attack - so I dutifully took the pills.
When I went to the doctor in Mexico for my sore throat she was very concerned about my blood pressure being extremely high. Hum??? So when we got home I made an appointment with the doctor to get it checked again. I figured I'd been taking the pills, we were home so things should be fine. Nope. It had not dropped a bit from before we left to now. In fact it had gone up a bit. So now I have to have an EKG, a Carotid Ultrasound and go see a Cardiologist. as he feels I may have Renal artery stenosis. The narrowing of one or both renal arteries. Mainly because of the suddenness of the high readings, and because the medication didn't help at all. So we shall see what is going on. He increased the dosage of the medication and today I was so tired I couldn't move. He said it didn't matter what time of day I take the pills so from now on it will be at night. I've been feeling so good it was kind of a shock to me - so haven't been in a writing mood.
Tomorrow we get our new washer - good thing as the closet is getting full of dirty clothes. Also tomorrow I plan on making banana bread. And there is an important soccer game to watch.
But the main thing I want to do is get back to walking. Haven't done much since leaving Mazatlan. I have to figure out where my FitBit is.
So that's my story -
What have we been up to...
