A good report

Went to see the doctor Tuesday, she was very happy with the results of my labs. I have been off Statins for six months and she wanted to see if I would be able to keep my cholesterol levels down without medication.and I managed to do that.

My glucose levels also went down even though she cut my dosage in half on my last visit. She, therefore, took me off the medication...yeah!!!

I am back down to just taking my blood pressure pill. High blood pressure runs on both sides of my family and I am ok with having to take this medication for the rest of my life.

It has been raining daily and my nerves have been on edge, I do not want a repeat of last week.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


NBA Corner

I can hardly believe the NBA Finals start tomorrow.  I have not decided who I am going to root for, I disliked both equally during the regular season.  However, after the dirty play by ZaZa on Kawhi Leonard, I have come to deeply dislike the Golden State Warriors.

The only bright side is that now I will be able to do what I could not during the regular season or the playoffs and that is to enjoy a nice cold beer :)

  1. Excellent news! So glad to hear this success story moderating the diet to get off the statins. Congratulations, Ss! Enjoy that cold one.

    I am pulling for LeBum I guess. Same reason except stronger than "deeply dislike" to the "H" word.

    1. Thank you Sb.

      The only good thing about game 1 was the first quarter. Other than that it was boring, I dislike blowouts.

  4. I'm a firm believer that most medications are over-prescribed, and most problems can be eliminated or held in check with proper diet and exercise. You're doing great!

    1. You and I think alike on many topics Gypsy including this one. I wish I had your workout ethic, I know that would help me a lot.

  5. Wonderful news. Your dedication to following the Doc's advice paid off.
    It must be a double relief for you, since you are your Mom's primary caretaker. (If you get in medical trouble, she's in a terrible fix.)
