Harry, I haven't had a beer in days, just water and 7-Up. Seems like I am up every hour peeing all night. I don't know where it is all coming from because I'm damn sure not taking in that much. Feel like I am going to dry up and blow away!

I can't drink coffee anymore and I sure miss it. The wife drinks about a gallon before going to work, and the smell of the coffee brewing every morning is soooo tempting. Hope you find the coffee maker soon brother!

It's a lot of driving and packing and unpacking but I am " retired " and my wife says that's my new job to get the house ready.she is going to work for another year or so. After breaking concrete all those years this is not so bad. Have not found my coffee maker yet had no Joe this morning need to find it today...

Shannon, glad you made it safely.  How many trips will it take before you’re done?

All's well made it to my new Hotel Sierra, Saltillo Tennessee

Dave, your med HCTZ, is a diuretic (flushes the system).  Appearently it was doing it's job. Maybe too good.  Increasing fluid intake, to include water but not so much yeast and hops would help, as well as asking Dr. about decreasing dosage.  Stopping altogether was not in your best interest.  I understand there could be other factors not mentioned here but the occurrence at your stress test was indicative of needing to get back on some type of B/P med.  I'm sure this is not the first time you’re hearing this but I'm trying to increase my billable hours.

Shannon, if we quit putting quarters in the jukebox and start a Fort Courage fund instead, we should have enough by.....2270.
