I didn't bother going to bed any earlier than 2:30 a.m., last night and I know it was 3:30 a.m. before I fell asleep. But, I woke up at 8:30 a.m., when the alarm went off, although I stayed in bed for another 15 minutes or so.
I left the house a little after 9:30 a.m. and got to the clinic in good time. They were running behind schedule, so, although my appointment was for 11:00 a.m., I had to wait until after 11:30 a.m., before I got called in, but I had taken some knitting with me to do while I waited, so it was fine with me. My blood pressure was a little higher than it had been on Wednesday, at the other appointment, but it was still normal and my blood sugar reading was good, too. The primary care physician assistant examined me and went over the blood test results in detail, with me. Everything was in the normal range and she was very pleased with my A1c levels. But, she didn't want to make any changes to my medication dosages, because, the last time she did that, things fluctuated a bit too much. So, I am to stay on what my current medication dosages are and just monitor everything until my next appointment in 2 months' time. She didn't have any opinion about which additional calcium supplements I should take to build up my bone density and said to discuss it with the oncologist (my appointment is on Monday).
It was past 12:30 p.m. when I left the clinic and then, I drove to the lab for blood tests for my appointment with the oncologist on Monday! I had almost forgotten I had an appointment on Monday! For some reason, I had thought it was in September! It's a good thing I checked my appointment book, again, this morning. I was a walk-in at the lab, but there wasn't a wait, so, I was in and out.
Then, I went to the pet supplies store and bought more flea spray, for both indoors and out. I bought a different brand of spray for the outside, this time (the same brand as what I've been using inside), to see if that was more effective. Stopped at the dollar store on the way back and bought three boxes of baking soda (for use as a cleaner/deodorizer). I had forgotten to take the information about the vacuum cleaner bags (product code, etc.), so I didn't go to Sears to buy them. I have one more bag to use this weekend and will buy the bags over the weekend, or on Monday.
It was in the mid-to-upper 90s, today; about 97F when I came home, around 3:30 p.m. I ate a late lunch and then, took a nap on the sofa! I didn't wake up till past 6:00 p.m., when M came to do the garden! I had him spray the garden with the new container of outdoor spray I bought.
I felt too tired to go to the meditation session, today. So, I stayed home and rested. My day was quite full, as it was, I felt. I ran the dishwasher and washed a few other items, like my teacups, by hand, and wiped down the counters and stove top.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A good visit with the doctor
- Blood test results were all good
- M spraying the garden for me
- An afternoon nap
- Resting in the evening
