Old woman winter

So, the winter is always a rough time for me, February in particular. The winter is just long and cold and hard on the body. Anyways, my latest trouble has been with my gallbladder. I started getting pain about a week ago and went to my doctor. On physical examination he decided it would be best to get an ultrasound. The ultrasound didn't really show us anything we didn't know. I have gallstones and they bother me every now and then. Right now the action plan is to follow up with a GI specialist and see if they can maybe dissolve them with medication or break them up small enough so that they can be passed.
Another wonderful development we noticed is that my blood is raised. Its normally 120/80 always all the time forever but lately its been 150/91, 138/85 so I am going to be put on a 24 blood pressure monitor and then we will go from there.
In the meantime I am going to get on with my life as much as possible. The best thing for gallbladder problems is a clean healthy diet including BEETS! Beets are wonderful for the gallbladder so I've been roasting them and eating them as much as I can.
So if you have gallstones and can't get them removed please let me know and I'd be happy to share my beet recipe with you, its so good they barely taste like dirt.
