Doctor, Doctor Give Me The News

Another unplanned fly by the seat of my pants day, I did work but not as you would think.

First I had to talk to someone about a mentally challenged person so I went to the count mental health center, They wanted me to take to someone else in a different office and if that did not help to come back to them. I also seen one of Tony`s family members heading inside :/

Next I wanted to check and see if I could get my blood test results from a few weeks ago so I would know what to eat and how much more to exercise. The news was not good but I did not expect it to be, my sugar a1c or whatever the tests name is, is still high so I have to get that down and I have not had a cholesterol test in a year and its up a little at 256 which is not real bad but it needs to be around 199, with the tri`s only 40 points over normal so I was told to do what I know to do, get back off animal products.

I made my three month check up today because the computers were down when I was there last. I also made Tony an Appointment and this is why….

I call in Tony`s medication and when I asked the guy, the guy we know that works there, to look up and see if he had a refill left on his testosterone he told me he would when he got time and I said, well how do I know if I need to make him an appointment, he told me to call back later. This made me mad and I did intend on reporting him but when I stopped by to pick up his medication today it was filled and will last ten months, with no refills left. The other lady said that was his weird sense of humor, well to me it just makes a mess or things.

Since he got his testosterone he went over and signed in for the nurse to give him a shot, now maybe he wont feel so tired he has been out over the time he usually has his shot.

Now I must work on me, I will become a veg head again.

That Life Is Canceled

” Life is like a box of chocolates, Smash each piece so you don`t` get that nasty creme flavor!”

Yes I do 🙂 and people hate me for doing that, but you ever eat a piece of chocolate and it has nuts and it yummy, then you bite into that nasty creme flavored one and it just ruined the first piece chocolate indulgence? I say “Smash`em.”

I can imagine that everyone is as sick of hearing about sickness as I am. I try to live positive and not focus on every ache and pain. I know if I work all day I am gonna hurt thats normal life and that is what I am going back to, today is the beginning of going back.

Now for the NOT sick article.

I am not totally against doctors, I know God put them on earth to help us, its the doctors that only look at the money and not caring about the person that I have no use for, Sad to say, most are no longer caring, give a pill and get rid of you and holler “Next!”

Tony had his six month check up yesterday with the heart doctor, he has stents and they did save his life. Seeing that he still has part of that cold/flu mess the doctor wants a stress test but he will put it off till summer. Since I am his caretaker I am also asked questions by the doctor and I like that because I can tell him what is or not happening, the doctor asks my overall opinion and I give it. Good doctoring, this surgery was done two years ago and he has had no complications.

I was supposed to have a stress test but I put it off for another week, it was today, I don`t feel sick and I have never had any heart problems but to flatter the doctor I agreed to one last test, after all he said ” you`re not sick!”. I just need to chill at home today and not worry with all this doctor mess. No matter how cold it is outside, I will get back to walking today, my dogs have missed me and the walks. I have missed my “me” time with God while I walk.

I am getting better since that horrible shot in my spine, that was one of those live and learn experiences, that one I will not try twice, Although my controlled diabetes is still out of control and extremely high from that shot, I will not focus on that and move on, diabetes is something that each person has to control, with exercise and diet.

Maybe I should do a check in with the new year resolutions, Get me back to what I want in life. What do you think? I am headed in the right direction in my own opinion.
