What I know is that I'm not going to die. Not yet. At least, not from diabetes or high cholesterol.

Okay, so I'm triple-blogging you today...but just in case you missed it.
Today at around 3:30pm I got a call from my doctor's office. The nurse stated, "We got your blood work back, and the doctor wants you to come in to discuss the result... Read more
