Not a great photo really but I like the contrast between two worlds, the palm trees representing warmth and the deep cold of the snow covered mountains on the west side of the valley. I actually snapped this while stopped at a traffic light! I try for any photo opportunity that may result in a winner photo, this one is just so-so.
Anyway, I had two doctor appointments today, yeah. Fun eh? The first was with my GP for the BP check. My medications were adjusted of course. No new medications but the amount was ramped up. Next was a visit to my Cardiologist.
My appointment was supposed to be at 4:40 PM but I arrived at 2 PM to ask if there were any canceled appointments that would allow me to get done with all of this sooner.
Turns out, I went in almost immediately for my Echo on my heart, then the consultation. I received the news I’d been hoping for – my heart ejection fraction is exactly where it should be for a man of my age. Yeah baby!! I was diagnosed in 2002 with Congestive Heart Failure.
Apparently I’m beating the shit out of the odds! All I need now is to get the correct balance of medication to bring the BP down fully. And, I seriously need to drop at least twenty pounds.
Obviously, that would go a long way in improving my health. I’m concocting a plan to start on next month to get started in that direction.
