DH Doing Better

Today was Tracy's follow-up appointment at the doctor. I just don't understand why this grown man can't go to the doctor alone, he wanted me to go with him so I did. Of course they checked everything again; weight, BP and even ran a EKG. His diet and meds must be working...WOO HOO. BP is out of the danger range, still high but coming down. Doctor wants it checked again in 5 days when he goes back for some lab work. He lost 8 pounds in 3 weeks (if I don't grow gills, start clucking or delivering eggs like a bunny from all the fish, chicken and rabbit food otherwise called salad I'll be shocked). His back is getting better slowly but at least some progress there too. Again I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and good wishes, they have sure helped.

I hope to have a stitching update in the next day or two.....Until then, Happy Stitching

That is good news Rene. I'm sure it is just as hard work for you to prepare it as it is for him to stick to the diet. Back improvement can be a long, slow process. Glad things are getting back to normal.

Glad that hubby is slowly feeling better. Between the new diet and the meds I'm sure his blood pressure will drop more by the next check up.

I am so glad that he is improving. But keep up the hard work to bring down the BP. I have been on a low fat diet for years. Can't tell you the last time I ate beef. :) It's not that bad though. You can use turkey or chicken chop meat in place of regular. It's fish I can't stand. :)
I'll be hoping and praying that the BP is better on the next visit. And that his back continues to improve as well.

Glad to hear he's doing better, Rene. :)

I rarely eat beef anymore. Mostly chicken, fish, and pork. Ground turkey is good in place of ground beef... You just have to season it really well. I don't eat a lot of salads, but do pile up on the veggies!

Congrats on the good news about DH's health. Not an easy task.
