Been MIA - Update

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

My Dad has been gone for a month but it still hurts, this Father's Day will be horrible for me, all the commercials on tv are bothering me.

I went to Maine for a few days to visit my wonderful Spark friend Pat (NorasPat/Pat in Maine) We had a wonderful time chatting, sparking together, walking and playing tourist. We visited the Central Maine Botanical Gardens which are simply beautiful and that particular (damp, rainy, chilly) day, they were so serene and peaceful. I hope to get back there one of these days.

Today my Dr. appt. went well, bp was down where it should be, she was satisfied with my progress, showed her my large bald spots in my hair and she said it could be a fungal thing, I need to see a dermatologist, the one at the clinic comes twice a MONTH-his schedule is full until September. Googled dermatologists in the area, not one within 60 miles-oh well, guess I'll just have to go bald. Other than that, I had to take 2 pills because I pulled a tick off my leg last week and the area is still red. I don't have to go back until next year.
Next Dr. appointment is Thursday, every female's favorite Dr.

So that is where I am right now, eating better and getting to the gym. I do a few exercises while watching tv in the evenings with the weights and resistance bands.

    Good to hear the bp is down where it should be. Take care of that tick spot, I'm here where ticks can mean Rocky Mtn Spotted Fever so we're pretty leary of them.

    Be healthy!

    Good luck with all your appointments. Sounds like you are taking care of yourself, which is a very good thing. If you are having a fungal problem there is two things (maybe more) you can do till you see the Dr. First, you can try vinegar. Just dab some on the spots with a cotton ball several times a day (or rinse your hair in it but it might be smelly). You can also get some generic cream (like Lotramin) that is used for athletes foot. All it is is an anti-fungal. I've used it several times when I've gotten ringworm (which is a fungus I can get from the animals I work with). Good luck!!
