A visit with the doctor.

Last night I was invited to a neighborhood block party where about 20 of us gathered to solve the most pressing problems of the day. It was well attended considering the number of folks that have arrived.

This morning was my first trip to the doctor since being back in town. I stopped by last week and gave them a bunch of blood to play with and today I returned to see what they had learned. The doctor was pleased with all the numbers and was more than pleased that the diabetes remained under control. The blood pressure was elevated a bit from the last visit and I can't for the life of me understand what stress I've encountered in the last two weeks that might have caused that. Overall a good review and things are in order.

After the trip to the doctor it was a stop at Wal-mart to buy a few additional items to fill space in the pantry and now I'm back home for the duration. Just settling back and enjoying the good life.

  1. Your blood pressure may not be a result of stress, but diet. When John changed his diet, his b.p. went to normal and he is off meds.

  2. Great news about your blood workup. Isn't it nice to have a run-around vehicle?

  4. Being able to go to the doctor for a check up is much better than the alternative. Nice that you're firing on all cylinders.

    Now put that good life in high gear and let that blood pressure drop to where it is supposed to be. Smell a rose or two. :c)
