Well, there's three minutes left in the game and this is the "Hail Mary" play. I don't think I'm really going to know if it's working for six months, when I will be having the sonogram and MRA done again. You can feel a difference in a few days if you don't read all the info about them. I missed the part about taking extra minerals since some may be taken out.

But, I have been doing some weird things on my own. I had a diabetic dr appointment Thurs. I got up thinking it was Fri and took my Fri morning pills. Then, after my shower, I realized it was Thurs so I took my Thurs morning pills.

I get to the doc and I'm 200/100 and he's upset. He adds another b/p to my long list of meds and, DUH, I still don't realize what's up. I certainly found out why on Fri morning when I didn't have any pills. One pill that I take every morning is Meridia 15. That sucker raises my b/p but not so that it is a problem. Certainly a problem when you take two instead of one. So, instead of calling him, I just go taking my old meds and the new med.

Come mid-afternoon yesterday, I've got kids and I can't keep my head up. Starting feeling really weird and grabbed the b/p meter. 106/56, doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. I'll probably fax him tomorrow and get on of the meds dropped. When you have a blockage of any kind, as I learned with the TIAs on the left carotid, it can induce the TIA because the b/p isn't strong enough to get the blood through the artery.

I had told MK that I have been waking up evey day with a strange headache on the right side. We'd decided that it was probably sinus but I think it is this artery problem. The neurologist said that I shouldn't be able to feel it but I think he's wrong. I guess if the headache goes away, that might be a positive sign.

Otherwise, sweetie, I'll be way up the river without a paddle, heading to Victoria Falls. Something else that wasn't in the brochure when you have double radiation daily and 24/7 IV chemo. I'm really laughing now because, I swear, you could never make a movie of this whole thing, not a soul would believe it. I want you to laugh about it, too. You know that we're all born to live and we're all bound to die. I don't know what I did in a previous life but I get the feeling that I won't be leaving calmly in my sleep like my Mitchell did.

If I do become a vegetable, I'm counting on you to be sure you trip over the plug or a juicer for carrot juice. Life is sure one hèll of a journey.

Love You, Jo-Ann

Love you, too.
