Just a quick update for those that aren’t on my facebook. I went to the Doctor yesterday for my check-up and because of the swelling all over my body.
The swelling is due to lack of potassium and retaining water because my blood pressure pills were changed in the hospital. So, I was ballooning up more and more everyday. Here’s the craziest part…in 5 days I gained 18 pounds!! Granted that’s mainly water but, holy cats Batman that’s a lot of weight!
I was given a potassium supplement and a water pill. So far no real change but, I’m sure it takes a bit of time. I only started them today. I am hopeful and I’m also grateful that I did NOT have to go back into the hospital. Praise God!
I kept wondering why my stomach, legs, everything seemed to be getting bigger when I’m living off berry smoothies and jello. Well, I guess having pouches of water all over does that to you…yuck!! Here is a picture of my leg and cankle.Sexy and I know it…NOT!! Don’t be jealous of my pedicure either 😉
Well, I’m sure all will be fine. I’ll be back to blogging in a couple weeks, until then I’ll see you on your blog. Have a great week everyone!
