Woke at 7:38 am, and without rising reached over and lifted phone into bed with me. I pushed the "Bertha" button and it dialed my cousin for me. I could tell by the tone of her voice that someone was there with her, and I said "Oh your sister is there." And I was right. We chatted until after 8:00 am and I rose and got ready for breakfast
I was offered waffles, potatoes, scrambled eggs, syrup, bacon, and sausage, but said, "No thanks," and took toast and cold ceral instead, which with orange juice and coffee was plenty. If I ate the breakfast they offer every morning I would weigh even more than I do now.
Rolled home and opened my pill cabinet. I recited my pill litany:
One, aspirin, thins my blood to prevent strokes and ease the aches and pains or Arthritis
Two, lowers blood pressure
Three, regulates heart beat
Four strengthens heart beat
Five "dewaters" me so I pee away water so it does not make my legs swell quite as much.
Six, regulates the sugar in my system so I do not have to take insulin.
Whew, what a routine. At night I repeat a couple and add an anti-chloresterol nightcap. My pill cabinet has a few "in case" medicines. I have on standby: anti-diarrheal, strong pain killers for phantom pain, cough suppressant, cold remedy, sleep inducer, and plain old aspirn and tylenol, and by my bed, an inhaler.
And how was your morning?
