Wooo hooo, after keeping my stupid feet up in the air for almost 36 hours solid, the swelling has gone down at last. I am going to visit my Dr this week to see what the hell is going on... it is NOT diabetes though.

Stew tested my blood yesterday morning and my reading was a normal 7. HIS on the other hand was 11... but he takes his Metformin every day and is keeping his Type 2 Diabetes under control.

There really isn't much PRETTY about feet NOW is there? lol

I'm off to my Patchwork Class this morning ... I am going to make a few more Ducks, and I also want to find a pattern for a fish. A FUNKY FISH!

Also today I will make that Dr's appointment, and talk to him about Lap Bands... and whether or not I can get it done SAFELY, considering my tendency to BLEED during and after surgery, and my last operation caused a Pulmonary Embolism too (bloody clot in lung).... so I may not be even allowed to do it. We will see eh?


Any minute now he is going to realise I am going out... and he's going to quickly run under Brylee's bed and hide. I know. He's a shit. A cute shit. But still a shit. So..... I'm not going to put my lipstick on until I have grabbed him! He KNOWS when I put my lipstick on, I'm going out. He's clever if nothing else.

Class today was lovely... it is such a neat group of ladies who go there! Can you imagine sitting in a room next to all these GORGEOUS materials....

And not buy any???? Well, I did it today, but that might be a first.

ABOVE: Today's duck, I made him in class this morning. I'm calling him Monday. Original? MUCH... lol!

End of Day: it's been a quiet afternoon/evening. Spent a good deal of time with my feet up so they wouldn't swell up again. Oh and I read a book! Not something I've done a lot of lately at all... sewing seems to take up most of my 'free' time! nite nite.


  1. humm you are going on my prayer list. Have they checked out your heart?

  2. Gosh how swollen were your feet? maybe it was the coming down off the sleeping tablets? heres hoping Ohhhh fish now you could start a menagarie!!(sp) Have a good day sewing cutting and or yakking....

  3. Hi Chris - when I mention insulin resistance, that is not diabetes... in case you thought that is what I meant. Hopefully you can get this sorted.

  4. I've been getting swollen feet (actually just "foot") lately too. I blame everything on menopause ... much easier :o).

  18. Glad to see the swelling in your feet has gone down. I hope the doctor can give you some answers. The heat and unfortunately the weight would not be helping. I can relate!!

    Thinking about you!
