My toes are completely healed up now. I gave blood yesterday. My hemoglobin was 13.0. I was a little worried that it wasn't going to be high enough. My blood pressure was high enough, as well, 94/62. I always feel extra grateful for my health after I give blood.
I have been slacking on the flossing. I have to work on this again. I have a dentist cleaning coming up in December.
At work I am doing much better at saying no to the candy, the Greek pastries, the bagels, cream cheese, Danish pastries, donuts, etc. I've been looking at it and thinking. Do I want to have to wear that? Do I want to carry that extra weight on my feet and knees? Do I want to have to squish that extra weight into tight undergarments? NO WAY! Some days I just don't care about how I look in clothes, but I always hate the feeling of tight undergarments.
I took my husband to the doctor. His one foot is infected again. But, it has been years since he had problems with it. He got on the scale at the doctor. He lost 34 pounds in six months! Yay! He got his foot cultured and an antibiotic shot. Plus, got his yearly blood work done. He is smoking less, drinking less alcohol, and eating less food. He is a little grouchy.
I got bad news this week that a friend of mine has lung cancer. It has metastasized to the brain. The doctor says that she has 3-6 months left. She is a very bubbly, funny person. Just a joy to be around. Very sad.
