Follow up with ‘Doc’~~

Rolled out after actually sleeping in a little bit. Me and my Queen both got a much needed night of decent sleep and rest. I think the meds are starting to work for Angie so she is sleeping – and because she is sleeping, I get to. I just hope it continues as I think we are both worn out from our latest trial, tribulations and illness’s…………..

I made us both a nice breakfast and we took it easy until the afternoon when I had my follow up with ‘Doc’, but this time for me…… BP was up a little bit higher than ‘Doc’ would have liked – but I was a tad bit stressed when I got there and I think that accounted for it. ‘Doc’ was pretty thorough in her questions and I ‘lightened up’ a little bit during the appointment. She took my BP just before I left and it was back down where she wanted it to be. She also has me started on a Cholesterol medicine to get it back in check. Next project is to get me off cigarettes. She didn’t want to start me on two new meds at once as they can interact with each other and not in a good way…… She is determined to make me hang around for a while, but for the most part very happy with my condition.   She also strongly recommend I lay off diving for a while.  🙁  What the hell ??? Not supposed to eat what I want, not supposed to drink what I want, not supposed to dive when I want……. what the hell is the use of hanging around longer ????  Yea, yea, yea —- I get the whole watch my Grand kids grow up and stuff – but if I’m miserable, that ain’t livin’~! (but – that is why I said “not supposed to”)  😉  I do intend to try and take better care of myself….. but not going to go overboard with it~~~~   😉  I already have a follow up appointment with her in two months……. but until then – got to enjoy some aspect of being retired and living on a tropical island~~~

Not a lot else to rattle on about and I’m a lot more tired than I should probably be after doing dang near nothing today….. so signing out with a couple of hopefully unseen older pictures…….

Good Night Ya’ll – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
