Doctor's Visit

BP is 122/75, a1C is down to 6.1, and I'm down to 193.

Got my flu shot, a pneumonia shot, and a prescription for some antibiotics to knock out this sinus infectio I've been carrying around for about the last month.

I probably should have gone to the urgent care clinic when I had the sore throat and ear ache that led into this cold.....

Other than that, the Doc is very pleased with my the weight loss and a1C drop since I've been her patient. Next visit is in six months rather than three, and she cut my Metformin back from 2000mg to 1500mg.

    1. Yep, it sure has. Needed a 'clean break' from Lost Angeleez to clear my brain out.

      Or maybe it's lack of Oxygen?

  2. You'll get more years on the back end, my friend. California is toxic, cool battleship in port notwithstanding.

    1. Yeah, there's a lot of cool stuff, and A Few Good People, but they don't outweigh the oppressive environment, rampant political correctness, general stupidity of the populace, and many, many other things.

      I didn't realize how bad it was on me until we'd been here a few weeks. It's a different 'verse here!

    1. My right arm hurts like Hell from the flu shot, but other than that, the Doc was very happy with my progress over the last year.

      She's a really good Doctor. She actually read all my medical history, which the last several Doctors I had in L.A. didn't.

    1. It's amazing how your body responds when you stop eating a double-cheese, small fries, and medium Diet Coke 3~5 times a week for lunch, and then go out to KFC for dinner!

    2. My body would respond with, "Hey! Where's my double-cheese, small fries, and KFC for dinner!"

    3. HAH! I was more than a bit traumatized by the move, and by the time I figured out where all the fast food places were, I'd forgotten about my need for them....

Keep it civil, please....
