Thank you so much for all the encouraging words and advice! Good news...The water pills have finally started working! I have been to the bathroom about 10 times in the last hour and half...I have noticed a lot of the fluid in my ankles and feet are going down now. Woohoo. I still have the sinus infection but I can tell it is slowly getting better each day. The shaking isnt near as bad as it has been. My hand writing is almost legiable again. YAY. They didnt order any of the stockings but told me to go to CVS and get some support hose. So thats what I did and I can also tell a difference in wearing them. I have a great work environment. Co-workers have bought me "work" slippers to wear since my feet have been to swollen for shoes, bought me all kinds of juices,drinks, teas, and even visa gift cards to help pay for my bills. When I am looking really bad some days, they will send me home and tell me to get rest. I am so fortunate to have such a good company to work for, a great family, a wonderful support group (you guys) and a great church family. I know I would not be able to keep going with out everyones support! So thank you so much.
A little funny story. Last night I was going through my cabinets to find a can of veggies and it is stacked above my head. Well, I was watching T.V., shaking a little from the meds, and reached up to get 2 cans of green beans that where stacked on top of each other and next thing I know a can toppled over and hit my eye. So now I have a wonderful purple, bluish, and swollen right eye. I mean for goodness sakes...a can of green beans beat me up. haha. Why couldnt it have been something real good like I got in a fight or somethign but no...I got in a fight with a can of green beans and sadly...it won. Thought you guys might appreciate that story.
Hope everyone is having a nice day and thanks again for everything :)
