With the coming of Glorious Spring is my sister having breathing issues and now heart trouble. Fortunately, she didn't wait too long and the doctor was able to diagnose high blood pressure, irregular heart beat and weakened heart (congestive heart failure). So she stayed in KAISER Hospital overnight and they drained four pounds of fluid out of her lungs and ankles and feet. I know the term *heart failure* is quite alarming, but apparently, that's what doctors want to call it. (What about Naughty Heart Syndrome, eh, doc?) Hopefully, she will come home tonight after two more cardiac tests. The doctor seemed quite lovely.
Hello, my name is Melinda, and I started this blog to change the world or to get free shrimp chips online, whichever comes first. (Call me, Asian Food Grocer!) Anyway, I'm Filipino, 50+ and just itching to retire on a smallish fixed income. I don't cook; I don't drive; I don't do Facebook or Twitter; and AMAZON is my second home. And while I am no Jonathan Swift, I do enjoy a bit of snark from time to time. Click the large banner ABOUT ME for my longer profile.
