Just catching up

Well,  still in love with my new Vaio Flip.  Still getting used to the touch though.  My big fat fingers keep touching the wrong thing.  LOL  I have the stylus, but  keep forgetting to use it all the time.  And of course I could always use the touch pad, but find that awkward.  So, I guess I’ll just have to buy a mouse for it and disable the touch pad.  Never satisfied.

Went to the doctor the other day because I’ve had a pain in my left arm since before November of last year and it just wouldn’t go away.  Doctor couldn’t figure out exactly what was going on and said it sounded like tendonitis so gave me some medicine to take for 2 weeks and it has helped but when the medication starts to wear off I can feel the pain coming back.  But, it’s only been a couple of days, so we’ll see after the 2 weeks what happens.

Had an Echocardiogram done last week and the doctor said he was very pleased with it, which is excellent news.  Now I don’t have to see him until July. 

Well, that’s about it for this edition.  Hope all are doing well.

Catching up on health stuff.

Went to the doctor on Monday because I was seeing my resting pulse dropping and was concerned.  He did an EKG and according to him, I shouldn’t be overly concerned.  But he did give me a referral to see a cardiologist.  So, I have an appointment for next Wednesday at 3:30 so will see what he has to say.  I have been watching it daily and it fluctuates between 65 and 50 something, so I hope it’s just because I have been working out quite a bit lately and it’s a sign I’m in good health.  But, don’t want to jump to any conclusions and whatever the cardiologist has to say will be taken under consideration.

There’s not much else going on around here.  Just waiting for some warmer weather so I can get out and plant some tomatoes and flowers.

Finally got my refund from Sprint. I had to threaten legal action in order to get it though.  What a total fiasco that was.  I hope I never have to deal with anything like that again.  I think I have a lot more gray hairs now.  LOL

Hope everyone is doing well.  Stay safe.

Just catching up.

Wow, been away for a few days.  Where have I been?  Nowhere, just felt lazy and didn’t post anything.  Went to the doctor the other day.   Blood pressure was good and both I and the doctor were pleased with that.  But, the doctor checked my blood sugar and we found out that I’m a borderline diabetic.  Not good!  But what really pisses me off is that I had blood drawn almost a year ago and besides the normal stuff they check when one is on blood pressure medication, I had them check my thyroid.  The reason I wanted my thyroid checked is because I sweat profusely.  Even when I’m just sitting around doing nothing I can break out into a clammy sweat and it’s very uncomfortable and embarrassing, at least to me it is.  Anyway, my sugar levels were obvious last year when they did the blood work.  So my question is, why didn’t the doctor contact me then so I could start doing something about it?  Ok, it’s considered “borderline” but if I had taken some preventive measures last year, by now, it would be back to normal.  I’m upset, but at the same time, relieved that we now caught it and I can move forward with prevention.

Well, now I have another project to work on.  Bought some new tile for my upstairs bathroom floor and will start working on that on Monday.  That I’m going to do myself as it’s just that self-adhesive tile that’s easy to do.  I just have to make some templates for around the base of the toilet and vanity, but that’s no big deal.  I’ll have to post some before/after pictures when I’m done.  Thank goodness it’s not a big bathroom.Winking smile

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  Be safe this Halloween.
