This week has been pretty quiet. I had a couple of doctor appointments. First the eye doctor had a good suggestion for seeing my computer better. Since I have trifocals, he commented that I should move the monitor back, so I can see it better through the middle portion. I don't get new glasses until March since I have to wait for the insurance to pay for them. He said come back in March for a recheck and then I could get them.
My regular doctor told me that even though my weight is above what is considered best for my height, that for one thing I used to be somewhat taller and for another, with my various health conditions I should carry somewhat more weight to be close to my best health. I am about right now.
I discovered that all that extra water drinking I did when I had bronchitis did cause me to have low blood sodium, so the extra drinking wasn't actually that good!!! Doubling (plus) my water intake was too much. It is too bad I couldn't have gotten to the doctor earlier than I did for diagnosis and an antibiotic, but the snow didn't cooperate! However, next time I will use cough drops more liberally -- though I suspect my water consumption will still be somewhat more -- but not more than double what is recommended!!!
