Friday, January 30, 2009


Yesterday, my primary care doctor gave me the results of all the tests they took last week. Apparently, I am disgustingly healthy for a woman of my age. The blood pressure is medicated to a reasonable level; the cholesteral is humming along at normal; the blood sugar is good.

Anything else, he asks me. Well, I've got this pain in my wrist that started in November when I took out the birdbath with the riding lawn mower.

So I got sent down to x-ray-not that they expect to find anything, but just in case. Monday, I call in to their automated line and get the results on that. Meanwhile, I'm to wear the wrist bracers—which I wear to ward off carpal tunnel—all the time. Make that as much time as is practical. I'm not about to wear them while showering, etc. Also, I get some heavy-duty meds for the pain (Celebrex) for the next couple of weeks.

Tomorrow, if Lloyd feels better, we will be on the road to Omaha. I'll try to remember to take the camera this time so I can take a few pictures.
