Another Lazy Day

Today, I decided to take a "me" day. Of course, there was one errand to run -- to the Grocery Outlet store. They had a "Grand Re-Opening" today, to celebrate their recent remodel (looks great in there!), and hubby wanted to go and see if we could win any of the prizes they were giving away. We...

Hubby's Turn At The Doc's Office

Finally convinced my husband to go and get a physical. His appointment was today. He's been monitoring his blood pressure. We have a home BP test kit, but he also checks his BP at places like Kmart and Walmart. They have those machines where you sit down and put your arm in the cuff and it takes...

Just Another Day

Not much exciting happening today. The washing machine went on the blink, and that's about it. I did manage to pull a muscle in my lower back yesterday, which was no picnic. As if I don't have enough pain to deal with. Now, I'm more or less sidelined with this back issue. I refuse to stay in bed all... Sign in to see full entry.

More Blood Work

Just when I thought I was done with the blood tests, here comes more. But this time, it's more or less elective. I have a follow-up appt. next week with a Nurse Practitioner at the weight loss clinic. It's been almost 5 years since I had the gastric bypass, and I've gained some weight back. So we...

Household Drama

As I mentioned in my other blog (Adventures in Christianity), we had some drama here last night. Writing about it seems to be quite therapeutic for me. Helps me sort things out, I guess. The interesting thing is that, as all this was going on last night, I started to feel a bit weak in the knees. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Yay! Good News!

The doctor appt. went well today. I'm not diabetic, and have lost 3 lbs since my last visit! So I have to take a statin pill for that. Thankfully, my insurance covers the whole cost, because I could never afford it otherwise. But at whose expense? After all, my insurance is Medi-Cal, and the new... Sign in to see full entry.

Doctor Again Tomorrow

Well, I'll be going back to my doctor tomorrow. This time, I should be able to get my blood test results. I'm hoping the diabetes test will come back negative, since I don't want to be diabetic (who does?) again. That test was ordered because on my last ER visit, they drew blood and it showed a...

More Blood Tests

Well, the appointment went fairly well, except for one small glitch. The hospital where I had the blood tests done is not part of the same organization as the clinic I go to. Health care gets so confusing sometimes. Really, whatever happened to just plain good medical care? Nowadays, it seems to be... Sign in to see full entry.

Money Talks

I had my blood work done last Monday. So today I called my doctor and made an appt. to get the results read. I'm completely out of thyroid meds, so it's important to get back on track ASAP. Interestingly, I was able to get an appt. for tomorrow morning. This never happened when I didn't have... Sign in to see full entry.

Back To The Doctor

I went back to the doctor last Friday. My Medi-Cal got approved and I have a zero share-of-cost. But, of course, the Dr's office has a policy that all patients have to pay $1. Fortunately, my husband had a dollar. I had no money whatsoever. It happens that way sometimes. The difference in the way I... Sign in to see full entry.
