I felt good for the first time in a while yesterday. My balance was better, Kathy stopped by with some really good gooey brownies and I made macaroni salad. Didn’t have some ingredients I would like to have had but had red onion and hard boiled eggs. That worked. I like to put a little pickle in mine and sometimes some shredded carrot. I think I am getting my sleep pattern more normal. Have tweaked my pills that I take for sleep. I think that has helped. When I had the racing heart I think my body needed to have extra stuff for it to get any rest. It is still racing but somewhat controlled. The pacemaker helps a lot. I wonder how many people had that when it was years ago. I did my little pity party day before yesterday on my blog. That is over. I have been worried about the bill but insurance came through pretty good. My bill was 27,451.72 just for the heart hospital but Coventry came through and yesterday I got a statement that I only owe less than 200.00. What a relief. Joe is going to cut Spunky’s stairs he made for him down to a much smaller version. Less than half its full size length he made for him when his leg was healing. I was going to order some steps for him because he has not been able to make it up on the couch alone yet. He just does not have the strength in his hind quarters to quite make it. His back feet slip off, the couch and that has been his bed from the day we brought him home, when he was a year old, from the humane society. Those full length steps of the couch has to go. Kathy likes my balloon plant. Especially when she found out it survived freezing. Guess we are going to have the Abbott reuion again this year at my nieces cabin. It is a fairly long drive and I already know Joe won’t go, so if I do it will be with Ron and Kathy. Just have to see how things are working. It is about 50 miles. Maybe a little less.
