I walked to Daddy’s this morning …. the first time I’ve done that in about six months or so. He lives about a block or two away, I guess, but we don’t have blocks. DH came and got me, so I wouldn’t tire out too much.
We had a full day today, making our usual round of the Estate Sales, looking for the really good bargains. We did find a few goodies, too, and I got a lot of walking in. By lunch time I was pretty well worn out, but it was fun. After lunch we went to the thrift store and did some more bargain hunting and then headed to the other side of town for my Gastroenterologist appointment.
Dr. B doesn’t seem to think that the acid reflux I’m experiencing is due to the Parkinson’s medicines, so he’s scheduled an endoscopy and an ultrasound for next week, and I gave more blood today for a liver function test.
As caregivers, we always kept a spiral notebook log of everything that happened concerning our loved one, such as when we gave medicine, any behavior changes, any digestion problems, etc., and we always took it to the doctors. So today, for the first time, we used the new notebook we bought yesterday for the start of my log, writing down Dr. B’s directions for me to take my Protonix twice a day and not drink any liquids with my meals. We’ll continue to note anything out of the ordinary in the notebook from now on.
