Must share this first. Family doctor called and said my hemoglobin had held for 3 weeks at 8.2. Not perfect but much better than before but pretty good. I believe the nurse said normal was thirteen. Stay on the iron, which does a number on my stomach but it is a matter of getting the blood count to stay up. I will go in on the 13 and have a blood draw then. They showed that little tiny camera on TV that I can swallow and yes Jack, retrieve it, just remembered will have to have Joe get some rubber or. vinyl gloves. Hope no one is eating as they read this but it is better than a colonoscopy. If the blood count stays up as good as it is now I may not need it. It is supposed to snow from 2 to 7 inches of snow by Thurs. I am still waiting on a call from the cardiologist. It should be yet this week. Can’t wait on good weather because a new storm is to move in over the weekend. I think hat I have been battling with the heating pad may be a type of virus. It is not gone but has moved around to my lower back and twinges along my shoulder blades. I am just about cooked on the heating pad. Yes Jean, they had me use ice on my knee after the replacement and I used it in the nursing home. Ice is cold and I thought that maybe with these pains being more on muscles it might be better, to use heat. I have to be honest and admit I like the heat. Ice worked good on my knee. but that had thick bandage on it. I expect Joe will be getting up soon. I best get off of here and read blogs.
