Hey Gang,
 
Still alive although some days not sure. LOL. Missed my lasix today so I have swelled like a balloon, my fingers are likes sausages, hard to type. Still doing the cardiac crap. Had to cancel the 2 day nuclear stress test. Was down sick in bed for 5 days straight, no way I could go. Waiting on call back with new date. So far, had doppler done on legs abnd echocardiagram. My swelling of the feet and legs is getting out of hand. He says to get off the legs the minute they start swelling and get them elevated.I am having alot of fever in the legs and then the skin peels later like a sunburn and boy do they ever hurt and are sore.
 
I kept my granbaby this afternoon and I am wore out. The kids finally got to close on the house Wed. They will move in over the weekend. The house is absolutely beautiful. I am so happy & proud of them, this is their first new home and they had a hand in the design. My daughter-in-law is very talented and she can do or make anything with a sewing machine, a gallon of paint, you name it. She made silk drapes and roman shades for the other house and they were beautiful, can't wait to see what she does w/new house. She did go over and paint the nursery today, pastel green & blue stripe 2/3 way up wall. She put up a chair rail all the way around and painted the bottom the pastel green. Baby has now cut two top teeth and he was really fussy today. All he wanted to do was crawl and hang all over his Gran, poor little booger. His Grandpa gave him his 1st animal crackers today too. We hid the little box from his Mom.LOL
 
Have been having alot pain in my back and hips. I take alot of muscle relaxers and this helps more than the pain pills. See pain mgt dr in a week or so.
 
My gut still gives me hell from time to time. I wonder if it will ever end. I am having lower left side pain which is new. My pain has always been lower right, now the left has kicked in. Need to get off the puter, legs hurting. Love & Hugs to all. Susie

Susie hey gal!
whoa, sounds like cellulitis of the legs.  from what you described & what i've seen in the hospital, that what it looks like...the skin peels, hot, red, swollen. awe, that's awful.  keep them well taken care of.
the Crohns pain i get is in my lower left and middle left side. GI dude says that's all small intestine.  well, at least ya know i get em' too.
that house & the nursery sounds spectacular. very pretty...much luck with it!
take good care of yourself, so happy to hear from you.
