Tuesday on Thursday

Hello, happy Thursday and I am behind in writing about my Tuesday PCP Dr. appointment and thought I had better catch up!

The good news is it will take about 10 years for the size of my aneurysm to reach the 5cm level at which point a procedure would be done.  I am at 3cm.

Going to have to continue on with Atorvastatin for cholesterol when my chemo therapy is completed…for the rest of my life…yes, I can eat some grapefruit while off of it currently but will check that out at my next chemo appointment.

I do need to eliminate sugar, and that is so very hard to do because I have a such a sweet tooth!!  Life without sweets!!  However I must and absolutely must give them up…currently, jelly beans and spice gum drops are my passion.  It is that time of the year….

More exercise!  Not just housework exercise.  I am not heavy or fat, and lost a total of 17 lbs since January which is good and I could loose just a couple more and be very satisfied.

Feeling good, no aches or pains to report at this time, still have hair on my head however, it is quite possible that after my next chemo treatment thinning could begin.  Dr had said so when I asked her…not looking forward to that at all but nothing that can be done about that.  Next treatment dates are the 4th and 5th of April.

The lab I go to has a patient portal feature I signed up for and I can review all of my lab reports since I started going there.  My cholesterol seems to be the biggest issue, and yes I know…the candy doesn’t help at all.  My next PCP appt. is in June, I hope to be able to have a better report and will be working on that.

On Another Note

Our weather today is very, very windy!!  I started raking up fallen blossoms and leaves from the orange trees again and the winds kicked up so will go out tomorrow to finish that up.  We were in the mid 70’s today with plenty of sunshine, will be about the same tomorrow then temps increase over the weekend.  No rain for us this next week unless that changes.

What has your weather been up to where you live?

Well, have a great weekend everyone, I will post again after my treatments.

I wish everyone much love, joy and happiness
