Most of you know I'm busy when I don't post on my blog and I appreciate you still checking on me. THANKS!!! :o)
Let's see.... I've been to CHA and back got TONS of assignments to work on after the show. Got a few things up my sleeve that I'll share with you later.
I took some time out for me to get a tune up and oil change...It all started with my yearly eye exam. My eye doctor asked if I'd had my cholesterol checked recently (panic and a sudden hot flash) NO it had been over 20 years!!! In fear of blowing up, I immediately scheduled for a blood test and physical...I run to the store to get Cheerios and check out labels for what my diet consists of (most everything is no or low fats) eeeeeek! I'm thinking I'm looking at genetic cholesterol issues (pills).
SOOOOOOO....after a 12 hour fast I get blood drawn and while they're in there, I asked for them to do a CBC and hormone levels. The next day I get my results back...I talk to the nurse and she is elated to tell me that I have the blood of a 20 year old. (What, I'm not going to spontaneously combust today???) "No...AND" she adds "you are post menopausal"...oh alleluia!!!
My cholesterol is a healthy 194 (L-64) (H-115) and triglycerides are 75. So now I'm wondering what my eye doctor saw...so I go back in there with my blood tests...he said he saw the beginning of a white ring. I ask my mom about it because she has the most unusual eyes (brown, blue and white rings) my uncle (brown and blue rings), my sister is beginning to get blue rings with her brown eyes). I have blue eyes with yellow around the pupil...now I've got to wonder if they are just going to change like the rest of the family.
Back to the eye doctor....I think he's loosing it...I get my new glasses and everything looks warped....CAN'T have that! (another reason why I have not been on the computer) He makes me a pair of glasses for computer use....got them back yesterday...warped as well. He said he adjusted for my astigmatism but I think he's got it all wrong. I've got another appointment with him to get both pair fixed. Note: I went to another doctor last year because this doctor had screwed up the prescription on my lenses the year prior...but decided to give him another chance.
Note to self: Find a new eye doctor. But am great full that he asked about my cholesterol because it made me evaluate my health.
So on my journey to health..I also had a body check with a new dermatologist. Everything looks good, nothing to cut off for now! Whoohoo!
I still have my physical coming up in a couple weeks, will let you know how that goes.
So now that I've bored you with my story, it's time for me to return to my desk (with older eyeware) and create some cards.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying summer!
