Doctor gave me good news today

United States
January 20, 2023 11:46am CST
I was up this morning and at the doctor's office at 7:30 for my annual physical. At 9:00 a.m., I also had a mammogram. I am happy to report that my blood pressure was 128/82, and my weight was 208.3 lb/94.5 kg, even before my body has "moved," if you know what I mean. So, I have, indeed, lost weight while I'm on vacation. I'm looking for a good number starting my February 1st weigh-in! I have another appointment here in a couple of hours for a haircut, and I have some other things that I have to get done this weekend, so I will not be around a whole lot to answer responses and such, but I Will get to them as I can. Thank you for your patience. I hope you have a great day! Photo is mine, taken on 17 January 2023, in Centro, Mazatlan, Mexico. It is some of the artwork that was on someone's front door.

Ravishingly beautiful. I think that you said that I was ravishingly beautiful, and he just agreed with you! LOL

@TheSojourner Nope...he did not say ..he agreed. He used the words. Only proves Americans either do not have as good a vocabulary as Vanny the Vampire, or...he was dumbfounded...by your beauty and stole my words. Either way....we Vampires are smart...

Thank you. I have a few things I'm going to be doing, so I'm just busy. Hopefully I can relax a little bit next week, though I have a doctor's appointment with the oncologist.

I am glad the doctor made you happy. My husband scared me today, his blood pressure dropped to 88/58, I am glad he was sitting on the sofa, but he could not get up, his head was spinning. He seems fine now.

That would be very scary. RGD has always had low blood pressure, as well, I think your husband and he are so similar.

@LadyDuck what new medication did they have him on? Sounds like they may need to adjust dosage.

@TheSojourner - I agree RGD and GCC are similar. I am sure the new medication is not good for him. I told him to stop it immediately. On Monday I contact his doctor.

@TheSojourner I don't know why I pictured the nurse practitioner to be tall and dressed in floral smocks . It's hard to find that perfect doctor . . . speaking of which I am on the lookout for new doctors for all of us - sigh.

@much2say It's so hard. I went through three people, before I found Dr. Gasow. Now that she's "gone," I am trying to find out if she just opened up her own new practice or what? And if she takes my medical insurances.

This is a new primary care provider for me. The one I really like left. This was the nurse practitioner. Her name is Holly Hawks! LOL I liked her, but she's not the same as the doctor I liked so much. One of the things that I told her was I felt my health was good, except for the stage four cancer!

That's excellent BP. I'm glad you have your physical and mammogram out of the way. I had a bone density, echocardiogram and mammogram. I still need to get my labs done; but I'm dragging my feet. I hope all your results are excellent. Great picture.

I thought they were going to do a bone density again this year, but she didn't say anything about it.

@LindaOHio I had one last year and my old provider told me she wanted to redo it this year. But maybe I should check with the new provider through the online messaging
