Grammy is still very tired and scared.
The doctor said that's normal.
She also still has the sinus troubles and she gots an Antibiotic for that.
They said she seems to be doing good. She lost 7 lbs from her last Dr visit in Sept, and 4 of those pounds were since she came home from the hospital last week.
She has been following a low salt, low Cholesterol eating plan.
She has a breakfast now... oatmeals and of course her cup of hot tea. No sugar...No cream....but that's the way she always did it.
Than for lunch she has sliced chicken breast on small roll
or a salad with chicken and 1-2 Tablespoon of Honey mustard dressing.
Dinner she have sliced lemon chicken breast
Lean Steak Very small piece, one night she even had a steak sub sandwich.
All fresh made. No more fast foods.
Baked potato, broccoli, sauteed mushrooms, onions, pepper.
plus applesauce, pear, apple slices.
She's on a good start. She still has to cut out her some of her favorites. like Cheese, watch using butter when cooking, she needs to find unsalted sunflower kernels and nuts for her homemade snack, with dried cranberries, and cherries and blueberries.
It's not really a hard eating plan....cause they already do alot of that stuff anyway, cause Pappy had heart problems way back and some other issues so she knew that way of eating....just has to follow along better.

On Wed she goes to Neurologist and will know more. So she keep all her questions and her eating journal to check out with him too.

As a tip for anyone that can't have fast foods ....Grammy and Pappy do their shopping and usually go to eat out on that day. So she knew she would want something and knew pappy would want go where he wanted to eat so while doing grocery shopping she gots a garden salad and fresh fruits. Than she got a small soda as a drink. She can have that but limit it. No big deal she's more a tea and water person. That was a great choice she said it was really good and she didn't have any thing bad. Now as for Pappy MOL!

We will update you on Wed after Grammy other Doctor Visit.

Thank you for the pmails, gifties and comments. Grammy read them all. We loves our Catster Friends and can't wait to be back full time again.
Have a great day Everyones!

Meowmy thinks that eating style is great and more peeps and herself included would benefit by following it, too.

Thanks you my dear friends.
We likes some of the foods ourselves. Good for Grammy and Furries too!
Grammy's has to start getting more active soon...but her Family doctor said to wait 2 or 3 weeks. Give her body time to rest. That's going to be the test. Grammy usually doesn't have a problem with the foods it's getting off her fanny and moving. MOL!
Once again Thanks for all your purrs and prayers.
We love you all and Have a great day.
