  Another beautiful day again. As usual I started this morning out a mute and slowly got it to break up enough to semi speak. My voice was weak today but we got a laugh outta it. At Easy In Snooks said to hollar at Lisa to come ring me up that she was busy. I turned to look at her and smiled and she laughed and said to clap or make a noise or something, she forgot I couldn't yell. We all had a good laugh out of that one.

  I read tonight on Dr Mercola's site something I had forgotten. Curcumin has properties that reduced swelling, so I took a couple of capsules. I'm still careful with those. It was those, before this whole thing started, that I got choked on and exploded the veins in my face and eyes. Still, if they will slow down the swelling tonight it will have been worth it.

   I got my oxygen tank refilled today, not a script but a tank I used at the pet store back when I had it. It helps, maybe just mentally, when I breath it in at night and sometimes during the day when I feel I'm smothering. When the sun is down seems to be when my throat swells the worse. It seems that night is when many things happen. It was about 12 pm in 2005 when I had my heart attack. It was 5am when dad's stroke hit.

  I went visiting yard sales today, or at least 3 of them, mostly I just drove. I ended up having lunch with Denise then stopping by the office to check on and help mom. I ended up in a junkyard with Matt & Misty and ended the day with watching a Tv show, my kind of day. I am worn out. Tonight I hear the hissing in my right ear and I cannot for the life of me remember what Dr Rathfoot said about that.

 I've left off the blood thinners for the last few days until the bleeding stops. Tonight I have taken the Curcumin and Ibuprofen for swelling and breathed oxygen for about five to ten minutes. I have drank ice water and also have the biotene spray ready in case I wake up in the middle of the night with a dry mouth. I may try and sleep in the bed tonight. I usually end up there somehow, lol. Somehow I thought all this junk would be over by now, one way or the other. I probably shouldn't think so much, lol.
