Update

Hello Friends,

Just thought I would update on my current situation. I am regularly attending the ALANON meetings .. which is really helping. I have been very busy, trying to keep up with my five children (it seems like the end of the school year is extra busy!) I only have one left that is not in school yet. I have one getting ready to graduate and one getting ready to start Kindergarten in the Fall .. go figure! But, I have to say they are my pride and joy. Anyway, now back to the update. My husband is suffering from severe hypertension, so he is on blood pressure meds and water pills for the edema. I want his Doctor to send him to a heart specialist -- but it seems HMO's make referrals tighter and tighter. He is officially off the Oxys and Hydros. However, since he does have chronic pain he has been put on Methadone. He is doing very well. The only concern is it is causing him to gain weight -- which he doesn't need with the hypertension. Anyway, I just wanted to update my friends. I've been laying low .. but never far away .. I have stayed active just reading and have been very active with my ALANON group. I know I have said this before; but I have to tell you how much I appreciate each one of you .. you have all helped me and my family more than I can say.
-MJ
