I'm okay

It was a long day for me waiting to go to the doctor's to hear about my bloodwork. Everything is ok except the pesky triglyerides and 'mildly' elevated liver enzymes. I was told to try fish oil for the 'tris' and she didn't seem overly concerned about the enzymes. Two of my brothers have 'weaknesses' in that area. Ken and I had our gallbladders out. My other brother has elevated LFT like me, but he smokes. He became a vegetarian (not sure if he caved in) but to me it would be wise to stop smoking. My older brother has diabetes. I think everybody has 'something'. I just took a fish oil capsule after dinner, but I'm going to alternate it with garlic capsules. The doc said I could get rechecked in 3-4 months. A bonus- I have lost 6 pounds since February. : )
I then got a new filling in a bottom tooth by a handsome young dentist with strong hands (my poor jaw). He was pretty fast-reminded me of how my usual dentist was a few years back. We were talking about my 'gap tooth' smile since there was a 'before' and 'after' photo smack in front of me. He said that I could get it fixed, but I've had my entire life and it's me.
I got home to no dinner. Just once I'd like my guys to surprise me with dinner. I was numb from the middle of my lip to my jaw. I couldn't eat until after 7.
Mom and Uncle Don sound good for a change. Mom slept 5 hours straight because she liked the double bed there. I think she likes taking care of her brother too. She's been filling up his tank, especially with cool drinks and I hope a nice dinner. Sean and I will go see them probably Wednesday. I may steal her to bring back to the house for a while as she hasn't seen the kitchen yet.
Got out my 'Cape May' cross stitch design and was working on that for a bit. It's nice to have some personal peace of mind for at least a little while.

    So glad to hear your doctor appt went well...just eating healthier and quitting smoking can make such a difference! As for the dentist, it doesn't hurt so bad when he's yound and handsome eh? lol Glad your mom and uncle are doing better, hopefully they will continue that way!

    I'm also relieved to hear that everything is reasonably okay. Good luck with your re-testing in 3 or 4 months.

    Men are odd about cooking dinner, aren't they?

    I'm really glad to hear that your mom and uncle are doing okay. Phew, that must be such a huge relief!
