Tests Results



My husband arrived home Sunday and it was so great to have him home. The only thing is that he arrived home with his ankles swollen worse then ever. But, this time he agreed to see a doctor. I had my CT scan on Monday and so I set up a doctor appointment for both of us on Thursday - to get my results and have him checked out.My tests came back normal - NO CANCER!!! :) :) . My blood work was normal with no anemia. My exhaustion must mean I am still recovering. The doctor said that my weight loss is from stress. We moved the end of May and have had MANY problems that the builder has been taking care of and thank goodness we are almost at the end of that list. He said also having our 17 year old granddaughter living with us has been stressful for me. And having her Mother live in the area (our daughter) is also additional stress. A friend noticed that my weight loss started when my granddaughter got lost in the desert on a 114 degree day. Her cell went dead as she was telling me where they were at and I had to call in search and rescue. She is fine, but I was so worried and hysterical until she walked out of the desert. I guess it was a culmination of everything. So, my relaxing in the area we set aside in the master bedroom is going to take priority in my life. My husband's health is a different matter. He had chest X-Rays today to rule out congestive heart failure (which the doctor does not think it is). He has blood tests on Monday and Monday he starts a rigid dose of water pills that will prevent him from leaving the house for 7 days. Then he resees the doctor the following Monday. He also has to see a vascular surgeon in a couple of weeks. This doctor said that if it is what he thinks it is that it can be corrected. But, if he had let this go on, he would have lost his legs. For over 20 years I have had him into a couple of doctors and all they gave him was a few water pills. This time was the worst I have seen. He looked like he had Elephantitis. It was unbelievable. Thank goodness it got that bad or I would not have been able to get him back to a doctor. I could not believe that he went and had the chest X-Rays today without me having to drag him. I am also changing my hand soap and face soap, etc. My lipstick is already gluten free (Avon). But, I am having a hard time trying to find a gluten-free mouthwash.I went to Whole Foods on Wednesday after I had my tooth repaired (broke off). I had a wonderful list of new items that I have acquired on this site. I tried Tinkyada Pasta for the first time and that beats the others I have tried. I made a cold pasta salad to go with the gluten-free cooked chicken I got at Whole Foods. My husband even liked it. Now if I could just find a few more of the items that Whole Foods did not have. But, I will probably find they are East Coast only. I am going to check out the internet for those things. B)
