I do not do camping anymore. Could destiny have a surprise in my future?
The reason that I needed to buy another camping cot is, the cot that I had broke! I busted the aluminum frame by plunking my body down on it, instead of sitting down gently.
Here's the thing. It would be better for me to sit on a folding camping chair. I have one of these in my apartment. So why didn't I junk the broken camping cot and begin sitting on that camping chair?
And why the sleeping bag??
See what I mean? The sub-conscious is a mighty force. It must know that I am healing now, and soon will be in condition to go camping! 😎
Whadda you think?
11am - Stepped on my doctor's toes
Last Thursday, my cardiolgist gave me really good advice. Here is his message:
Glad to hear that you're feeling better. We could add back the meds one at a time, very gradually, that way we can see which one(s) is causing the problem.
The most important med for now is warfarin - this will prevent stroke
Let me know
What happened next, after I went back on Warfarin [The first drug on the list above] was completely unexpected. By the doctor and me. My illness symptoms returned like gang busters!! So, I immediately went off Warfarin again [On my common sense]. And by the end of that first day after going off Warfarin for the 2nd time in one week, my right hand and arm ceased twitching and my energy returned in spades.
My doctor was resolute. "Warfarin does not make hands twitch", he messaged me.
But I believed that my experience with going off and then back on Warfarin, showed me that the this drug did cause my hand twitching.
During last nite, I did Google searches about this mystery. And I unearthed something. Warfarin was found to cause the brain to bleed. If my brain did bleed, and that bleeding caused a mild sub-dural hematoma, could that cause the symptoms I've been having? [link]
3pm - Reader comments
I am at the Claim Jumper for lunch. I've been on my computer replying to comments. Some of these comments appear to be sooooo angry. So disbelieving.
I am wondering why?
10pm - Down to the spa
I'm usually down in the spa [hot tub] during the 7 O'clock hour. Today I brought stuff home [Weber Q1000 Grill, a bunch of red clay pots for the flowers]. I guess that I got so busy messing with this stuff, that I forgot about the spa!
So, I went down to the spa at 10pm! 😎
The apartment does not mind me going in the spa during nite time. Just as long that I am quiet, and do not disturb the tenants.
In the whole apartment house, I am the only regular user of the pool and spa. It's like I have my own private pool!
Just before I enter the spa, I turn on the timer switch which starts the spa water system circulating. That switch turns on the spa's heater as well. Larry the manager tells me, the spa is set for 92℉. That's a really nice temperature!
12 Midnite - A word about readers
I've been blogging since May, 2003. 13 years. 3,864 Blogger posts. I met most readers on the net. A lot of readers called on me where I was camping with MsTioga.
Nearly all my readers treated me wonderfully. Respectfully. Every once a long while, a reader would take exception with what I did. And what I wrote.
The worst case that happened to me was a Stalker Reader! This reader some how figured out that I had inherited some money. He wanted to debate me online, to make me acknowledge the facts behind this event. He dogged me for about a year! When I had enough of him, I researched him and his family. I found out that he had a wife and three sons. Found out where they lived, and their names.
Then, I asked him if his wife and three sons [Mary, Mark, Luke and Matthew]
[Not their real names] knew about his Stalking life? I mentioned all their names when I wrote to him and the city that they lived in. I never heard from him again!
Nearly 100% of my readers are kind, supportive and respectful. Once in a great while though, a reader will pop up who is troubled. In comments, such a reader will criticize and question in a mean way, what I am doing. I try very hard in replying to such a reader, to be thoughtful and respectful. Some times, being thoughtful and respectful doesn't take. And that reader may lose it, online.
I just wanted to clear the air about this subject.
How'd I do? 😎
