I have one son who is 13 yrs old. My daughter is 22 yrs old and have been through all that teenage stuff with her. Now it is my sons turn. Boy does he have that teenager attitude.

I really dont think that a teenager has a brain sometimes. They do some things that you just sit back and think what in the world were they thinking. My son is a good kid but some things I just have to shake my head.

I dont know maybe its just me. I know having PH makes me see things a little bit different. I just know that I will be glad when we make it through all these teenage years. My daughter has finally told me that she should have listened to me all those years. That mom really knows what is best. I just wish I son would learn that now and we will not have to deal with all the things that will be coming up. Right now mostly girls!!!!!lol!

Echo Results

I got a call from my doc with the results of my echo that was done the end of February. I was sitting in the docs office with my mom. She was getting the results from her biopsy on her thyroid. The doc just told us that they were not sure if it was cancer or not and they would have to do surgery. He was walking out the door to get the paperwork on the surgery.

My cell rang and it was my docs office. They told me that my echo was worse from last year. Last year my pressure was at 56. This year it is at 87. I was surprised it was up that much. I wasnt surprised that it was up some as I have not been feeling well the past six months. I have sleep apena and need another sleep study done. So we are going to be doing that. My nurse said that it could be part of the problem. We have got to work on getting my pressure back down.

I was trying to process the news my mom got and the news I got. We are just going to have to make any changes that are necessary to get my pressures back down. Some days I really hate having PH and this was one of those days.

Visit to my PH doc

I seen my PH doc on Feb. 26th. I had been having a hard time sleeping and was up the entire night before my visit. She wasn't real happy with my six minute walk. I had not walked as far as the last time. She thinks me not getting any rest could have something to do with it. I also had an echo. She did not have the results before I left. So I don't know if there is any change in that from last May. She did give me the ok to start going back to curves.

On March 19th I have a consult with a surgeon. I have a hernia that has gotten bigger so she wants me to see the surgeon to see if he thinks it needs fixed. It isnt causing me any problems just getting a little bit bigger. This worries me a lot. Having surgery and PH just dont go good together. So we will have to wait and see what he has to say. So I am waiting until after we see him to start back to curves. No since in starting and then not being able to go for a while if I have to have surgery. Any other PHers ever had any surgeries if so how did your PH affect it?

Snow! Snow! Snow!!

Is it ever going to stop snowing here in Ohio? I have not seen this much snow in a long time. PH and snow don't go good together. I have not been out for two weeks now. First it was cause I had to flu then it started snowing. No sooner do we get the roads cleared and we get hit by another storm. The kids are loving it cause they don't have school. They don't realize that they are going to have to make these days up at the end of the school year when it is warm outside!!

This cold weather makes it so hard to breath when I go out. That is another reason why I have stayed inside so long. My husband told me last night that I should get out for a while. I don't want to go out. I don't like having to mess with the snow. People just don't know how to drive on the snow either. I have lived here all my life and still I don't like all this snow. Sure I would love to see snow on Christmas day but that is it.

My grandson loves to play in it. He was having a snowball fight with his papaw the other day. He loved that and his dad took him sledding a few weeks ago. He really loves doing that. He is only 4 yrs old.

So if you could not tell I don't like the snow!!!! Come on Spring!!!!!!!!!!!
