    Oh my…I just tried this and you are so right…it does increase my step count. But I agree that crochet and knitting are exercise as well as mood altering, blood pressure lowering activities. You and Daniel are in my thoughts.

    I remember reading that Daniel wasn’t feeling well, but not that he had a heart attack. My goodness. Im glad he’s doing better. I too have an iwatch, and the steps add up quickly when crocheting. Wishing you both the best in the New Year 🎉

    I also have an Apple Watch. I discovered this shortly after I got it. I went from a Fitbit to the apple, so my steps pattern was pretty well established. With the Apple Watch, I was reaching my goal steps very early in the day. Didn’t take long to figure out what was going on. I look at it as a bonus!!! LOL!! Seriously though, I have often prayed for both of you. It sucks to be sick, but as a caregiver and partner, it takes a toll on you as well. ((HUGS)) to both of you!!

    Hey guys!!!
    I remember back in May when Dan had his heart attack. I prayed for a healthy swift recovery. This reminds me of my dad. He had high blood pressure and cholesterol. I remember the doctor telling him that he either changes his habits or won’t see his kids grow up. My dad completely changed his diet. He used herbal magic. Now my dad is completely healthy! And isn’t on any medications at all. You should check out their way of counting your food intake. It might help you out to! All my love to you guys. Keep up the good work. Merry Christmas. ❤️

    It’s your favorite Hobby Lobby employee from Akron, Ohio…. what I haven’t mentioned to you before is that I’m also recently retired from being a pharmacist here in Ohio… I just wanted to offer any help you may need in sorting out the medication stuff – I know that once you get past about 2-3 meds, things start to blur …. drop me a note if you need anything ….. I’m on Facebook if you need to pm me for anything….. best wishes, and Merry Christmas!

    I wear my fitbit on my right wrist and learned long ago I have to take it off when I crochet or I also rack up the steps!

    Mikey,
    Do you know that knitting and crocheting are counted as exercising. You are burning calories when you do this things also it helps to release the stress in your body and lower your blood pressure. Five years ago I was diagnosed with thyroiditis. My thyroid is bipolar and it runs to high or not enough depending on the month. She got me back into knitting and crocheting to help me. She also helped me to find a homopathic doctor to work with me. I was hating the chemical change going on in my body. With the both of them I have been able to not take as many prescriptions and take more herbs and minerals.
    I like that he wear the watch to help him to know when he need to take a break. I have you two in my thoughts and mediations everyday.

    I was married to a man that had already had 5 heart attacks and 2 bypass surgeries when I met him! I learned a lot in the 20 years that we were married and one of the most important things was that there are always alternatives. If a medicine is making Daniel feel bad, ask the doctor if there isn’t something else with fewer side effects. One of the medicines that my husband took cause sever depression and “grouchiness”. I talked to the doctor and he changed the medicine and adjusted another one to a different dose. It made a big difference in his health and his outlook! Take care of yourselves! BOTH of you! When you love someone, you share the ups and downs and your partners health has an impact on yours too. Hugs and foot massages are a must!
