Between my mom and I were cruising doctor appointments most of the day. I had mine at 8:30 in the morning-recap of the blood work from last week. Good results, much better than May when I went in for my physical. Blood sugar is down to 5.7 from 6.2. Cholesterol is down to 195 from 260. Have lost 10 pounds, but also am on meds now for both. Will keep working on the weight loss and what I eat. This week hasn't been too great being on vacation, but will be back on track in a few days. Had breakfast with my mom and then off to her Chiro appointment, then back to the same Dr (we are seeing the same one-very handy now) for her recap of her blood work. All her blood results were good, and on Thurs I am taking her in for a CT scan on her lower back and hips. Something is hurting her, and the doctor thinks it is her back more than the hip, but this will help us to see what it might be.
I will ask for copies to be sent to the chiro too so he can see what is going on there.
Did some more straightening up in the garage. Crawled up on the balcony and hung some things that we don't use much but want to keep. Had Jim watch while I was up there. I don't do good with heights and also wanted him around in case something happened. He said the plywood was flexing as I moved around up there. I was aware of it also. Not a good feeling. But got it all hung- all the bird feeder poles and bases are tucked away now up out of the way. Also got a few more things hung on the pegboard. Looking better, and just pecking away at it slow but sure. Change a few things as I go too as I try this or that to see what works and feels right. Trying to get things grouped together that we use and need.
Some things make sense and some things didn't when I put them here or there.
Was hot and sticky and a mess when i got done. Tossed a big load of clothes in the wash and jumped in the shower to clean up. Felt good. Relaxing now with a movie.
