Vampire visit

This morning I did what I probably should have done weeks ago. Having decided that the Rio Grande Valley was now my winter home I finally acquired a doctor to take care of my medical needs while I'm wintering in the Valley. Any of you who full time know that one of the things missing from a regular life style is a regular doctor. Well I now have one, at least for half of the year. We started our relation by removing half my blood (6 vials) and him throwing a surprise urine test that I didn't even have time to study for. So far every thing seems to be in order and I still have temperature, blood pressure and pulse. I will go back next week for the results of the testing.

All this activity this morning has left me drained (literally) so I believe a nap is order. Being poked and prodded by the medical community is just part of enjoying the good life.


  1. Yearly check-ups may be a pain in the but are a necessary part of keeping healthy, and isn't being healthy part of Enjoying the Good Life!

    It's about time.

    1. Thanks Donna, Hard to get an A+ when they don't let you study.

  3. Rick and Kathy said what I wanted to say. At least we are on the same page. You will pass I know.

  4. It is always a good idea to have a local doctor specially if you plan to stay in a place for sometime.

    While I tend to go to doctors in Mexico since they are easier on the pocketbook, I make sure I also have my American doctor. We learned that the hard way with my dad.
