Leukemia - How is Jemma? - Day 179
We are still missing the Grandmas. It was very nice to be able to leave Jemma at home while I dropped the other kids off at sporting practices. I would like to say a special thank you to my mother-in-law. She not only helped cook, clean and take care of the kids, but told me how to cure my headaches.
I have had headaches almost every night for a few years. My blood pressure is very low, I fall asleep easily and frequently feel dizzy. My headaches and other symptoms go away when I travel and when I'm in the hospital with Jemma. Just before she left she said "you're probably low on sodium. Why don't you try eating some more salt?" I added a little to my oatmeal and made sure it was included in my other meals. It's been almost a week since she made that statement and I feel great. So thank you very much for solving my problem too.
