Good Saturday Morning folks, I am going to be putting this post together as I watch the University of Louisville, kick some Temple butt on ESPN3. My blood pressure will flow with the game, the better Louisville does, the lower my BP, conversely should Louisville do anything other than kick butt today I might stroke out, so it is your responsibility to pull for U of L to ensure I don’t. LOL LOL. It has been a pleasant week here in the Tampa area, daytime temps still summer like, and very little rain. The humidity (which is an issue) has been almost Florida fall like, so I haven’t had that many issues this week. I hope that no matter where you are you have had a pleasant week, and that your weekend and next week look particular good for you. If you’re in the path of Karen, I wish you well, please stay save and dry.
For the week ending today, I will rate it as a solid 3.25. It has been a good health week. I didn’t have much in the way of health issues or appointments this week, though I did see Doc Head and my Internal Medicine Doc.
I saw Doc Head on Monday, and it was a good 45 minutes. It wasn’t all about what a great person I am (I knew that couldn’t last) LOL, it was back to work. I appreciate back to work. I also appreciate having Doc Head to talk to. As I have stated in the past, I do worry about where “Doc Head type” folks go to unload all the crap they may hear. I would also like to know what classes they had to take to appear so totally non-judgmental. Not that I have admitted anything that would cause me to fret, but they must hear things they don’t approve of or is so alien to them, passing judgment would be normal for non-doctor types. On a brighter side, it has been decided that I am not crazy, so I won’t be able to use that excuse in the future. That is a shame, I kinda like having a built in excuse.
Per my normal I spot check my O2 level several times a week, I do make an effort to check after or during stressful (physical) events. Normal sitting on butt O2 level is right around 95/96 percent. When I am physically challenged I can catch myself at the 83/84 level. But by then I am gasping, so I have stopped to gather myself. Heart rate is always close to 103-105, when I had my BP checked at my Internal Meds Doc ofc it was 112/62, which is close to my normal.
Having said all that my appointment with the Doc Internal went well, my cholesterol is great the bad stuff is way low and the good stuff is great. There will be no changes in the medicine. There is no reason to mess with success. Internal Doc does not want to see me again for 6 months. Wow, if I keep this trend going I will only be seeing doctors (except Doc Head) once in a blue moon. That is a good trend.
I have no medical appointments at all in the coming week, so next weekend’s report should be extremely short.
So that will wrap up this week’s addition “How I Feel Today.” As always if you have any concerns, questions or comments, please feel free to share them with me. Take care, Bill
BTW — Louisville is up 24 to ZIPP and has the ball, you can breathe easy I doubt if I stroke out today,
