Happy Friday the 13th

Friday, May 13, 2011

The day was a good day. I had the day off work, I walked 4 miles, I fixed a window screen... then I went to my doctor appointment. That started off fine. My B.P. was 112/70! Then I talked to my Dr. My diabetes is fine, my meds are giving me some problems that he is going to change. I told him that my belly button was turning from an "inny", to an "outtie!" He said that I have an umbilical hernia, and that I needed to have a surgeon look at it. I guess my wife is right, I'm in my second childhood!
Then I went to the college to take an accuplacement test, to see what classes that I am weak in. They said they had good news. I said, "I know, I have to take all remedial classes!" They told me no, just a few. I said, "And the rest high school classes?" They all laughed, but I was serious. Anyway, I am registered to take summer classes. We'll have to see how well I do with two surgeries scheduled at the same time!

    Considering going back to school myself. Good luck on your surgeries. I was born without a belly button which they called an umbilical hernia. Take care of yourself.

    I am always learning something, but the thought of going back to school is beyond me. I wish you every success.

    I was in my 30's when I went back to school and I wouldn't even want to think about what it would be like now at my age! Good luck with your classes & I hope your surgeries go well!
