    Hello everyone! I receive a very special message that some of you are wondering were I've been for the last week. I've been very sick and really haven't been up to getting on the board. I started a new med which will be a month tomorrow for my narcolepsy condition and I've gained 20 lbs in this short amount of time. I'm thinking the swelling in my legs and feet are from that but not sure. I'm hoping to get into the doctor tomorrow and see what going on with me. My foot is still broken also! LOL Which that isn't really helping me one bit. I want to take this time to apologize to all my swap partners for not having your things sent to you yet but they are coming! You ladies are all great, and I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your concern. Hugs to all Michelle

    So glad you are okay. This was a nice way to let us know . Too many times we miss someone and have no idea what is going on. Get better, put your broken foot up and get well. Hugs being sent your way.

    Hope you are feeling better very soon! I hate the side effects of some medications.

    I hope to hear that you are feeling much better really soon. Darned meds & their side affects can sure goof us up at times. Maybe they can get this straightened out quickly! You take care & thanks for checking in.

    I'm having problems getting my blood pressure adjusted. I began having swollen feet and legs and come to find out it was the procardia; doctor had me stop it and my feet haven't swollen since. Now I'm back to "trial and error". I'm also a diabetic, so it is difficult to find a medication that is compatible with the diabetic pills. Like my Mother used to say "don't ever grow old".

    DH used to have swollen feet and ankles, unsure of cause - now spends some time every day with feet up on pillows about a foot higher that the rest of his body -- makes a BIG difference.

    Hello Ladies! Just a quick note to update you on me!!! I'm still on the couch with lots of swelling! I've called the doctor Monday and today and I've still yet to receive a phone call back from him! I really don't think his office chicks are giving him my messages since this is totally not like him! I do believe like Debbie said and others that is acreaction to the new meds he started me on for my narcolepsy! I have a regular scheduled appointment with him on Friday so I guess if nothing else I'll find something out then. That's if I'm not dead first! LOL Keep me in your prayers please! Big hugs to all you wonderful quilting buddies!!!Michelle

    Ouch! A broken foot might make the one leg be swollen but not both so might be medication. I would call back again if the office help not forwarding your messages. Sounds like no fun. Please take care of yourself. Hope you are past all this discomfort soon.
