There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Yearly Check-up

I called today to get a refill on my blood pressure medicine. The Pharmacy said no more refills. But it seems like I just went to the Doctor for  my check-up. So I called my doctor and I had not been there since Feb. 2010.  Go figure. The date on my bottle does say good till Feb. 2011. You would think I would of noticed that. Well, I have an appointment for Tues. to get my yearly check-up. What fun! I called my sister and ask her to watch mom so I could go. I did not figure a doctors appointment into my budget this month. I think I told you I put a gas grill on lay-a-way for my son's birthday in April. I had that figured into my budget. Now I have to do some more figuring. LOL!
When mom went to Little Rock to have her eye surgery we were only suppose to be there a couple days so I only took enough blood pressure med. for 5 days. Big mistake. We were there 9 days. I thought It would be ok because the doctor said we would go home tomorrow . Than he said no maybe tomorrow . So I had to hunt down a Wal-mart and get them to refill my medicine for me. The funny thing is I just had it filled at home and that was on there computer . But I told them my medicine was in Springdale and I was in Little Rock so they did it for me. Thank Goodness . I could tell I needed my medicine. Mom use to have very high blood pressure and my dad too. Hospice took her off her blood pressure medicine and she is ok. They check it twice a week. Don't know why it is not high. I guess she does not get stressed like she used to. Except on bath day . She hates bath day. That is the only time she really gets mad anymore. Just like a kid . That reminds me . I need to go take a shower. Night all.


  1. I hate going to the doctor. I hadn't gone in years and had a whole bunch of tests done for them to just to tell me I was fine. I haven't been in a couple of years since. I know I should go again.

  2. shower times make me crazy too,, poor things get so stinking COLD!!!! have a great week.

  3. Please, please don't neglect YOU. I also loved the film 'The Rainmaker.' I have so many funny stories to write about when the run ends next Sunday!!!

  4. Oh girl...I've been without meds before, too! Kinda SCARY! One of the reasons I've worked so hard to lose weight is so I won't be plagued with some of the problems with BP my family has. Oh to be sooo blessed. I pray I escape those issues...have enough other ones!

    Thank you for visiting sweet friend. Always a JOY to hear from you. I'm behind in my visits...I'll catch up soon!

    Love to you~


  5. No matter how healthy you are they still want to run some tests!

  6. I made it to the doc. Great fun. NOT! LOL!


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
