but I promise I will get back on as the cat tales are stacking up in my head. (Anne or Debby, tell me what I do to keep them in one thread for you) Anyway, I have been having trouble with circulation and the doctor said I had to stay in bed the last day with my legs above my heart (seems like I remember something similar to that getting me into a whole lot of trouble back in '74) I am going to try to get one of those adjustable beds by Craftmatic cause I tried stacking sofa cushions and pillows on the bottom of the bed, but I kept kicking them off or practically paralizing my knees trying to sleep without moving. Bummer! So, I am supposed to elevate my gams for 3hrs. for every 1 I spend sitting (typing or drawing or whatever) letting gravity, in all her mystery, store the fluid in my lower legs and feet. Not to mention that the fluid aggrivates the joints where the arthritis is the worst and for the last 2 days my pain (on a scale of 1-10) has been at an 11 or 12; so that's another reason I haven't felt up to posting much at a time. I have been trying to get on to read what's going on and keep up somewhat. I go to the doctor 3/27 and will have to listen to him scold me for lack of exercise, but it's damn tough to do even simple things to get around the house and care for my babs on a daily basis, much less try to "Sweat to the Oldies" with Richard Simmons. . . . . . . .
