Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Personal Update on Me

OK, so no new picture here. I really don't like my pictures so if I find one I like or find OK it's probably the one you're going to see. This one was taken about 4 years ago. Went to the doctors today, something I rarely enjoy in any form or fashion. I was pleasantly surprised that my doctor was currently out of the country ( I like my doctor, but a new perspective never hurts) and there was this other doctor there to check me out today. He sat there and went through my entire folder with me. He reviewed every surgery, every illness and all my test for the last couple of years with me. He took my blood pressure, he gave me a physical and actually asked questions and listened. I almost had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I liked him a lot. What he found is as usual I have multiple issues and infections. Nothing new. The one most worrisome at the moment is a sinus/ear infection and a polyp found in my nose. Yippee... Good news when I weighed in today I am currently 96 pounds down since November last year. Yeah Me! Still a long way to go. So I have new meds. The antibiotic is Aomoxicil and Clavul 875 mg twice a day with a Mucinex DM Maximum strength chaser. Sigh... I would do anything at this point though to get rid of the sore throats and headaches. I also have an appointment with an ENT on the 23rd of October. We'll see how that goes. Oh and does anyone feel like walking? I have been told that it is imperative that I start walking thirty minutes - uninterrupted walks every day. Gotta work that into my schedule somewhere. Always more fun with a friend. Well, that is it for now. Guess it's time to head off to work. Sunny so I can take it!

how about this you walk everyday at your area and report back to me and i will report back to you. and no this isnt a joke. for real sheila. i think a 45 min walk would be the best we could get in about 3 miles once we get the pace up. so take your car and drive around your area and get a good 2 mile walk in. also break it down for a one mile walk then we can not only say yea, i did the walk but we can talk about milage and how many min it took. omg. the ex military 5 mile run a day woman is coming back into me. lol i promise no running........(for now)....lol
