Hi fellow Sparkers
Morning started off with the usual walk and then I remember I was running late for class registration over at the local college. So I made it over there, got my assigned registration number and had a delightful time visiting with my fellow returning students while we awaited our turn to register. Got the classes I wanted with a little help from one of the instructors as their class was full by the time my turn came but she approved me so everything is hunky dory okay fine. After registration I had to depart and go over to Pensacola to meet with one of my doctors for my 6 weeks post op followup. Things went well there too and we discussed my progress and lifting my exercise restrictions. yea! I no longer am limited to walking and biking and can resume a strength regime. I also got the go ahead to stop taking two of my medications (one for high blood pressure and the other for excess fluid retention). So I'm making progress on reducing my daily intake of pills. I also was able to reduce one of my oral medications for diabetes. Woohoo!! I go back to see him 22 Feb 12 and I'm actually looking forward to that meeting and hoping my progress goes well enough that I'll be able to cut back (or eliminate) on one or more of my insulin shots.
