I had my doctor's appointment at noon, today. In the morning, I called to confirm the appointment and then, drove myself to the doctor's office in good time. I had a good appointment - my blood pressure and blood oxygen levels were good, my weight was stubborn and had stayed the same (I thought the doctor might have to say something about not losing any weight, but, she merely commented on how stable my weight has been), my lab results were mostly good, and my ECG was good. The doctor also said that the gall stones were fairly small and apparently nothing to worry about, which is a relief. The doctor wants me to do one more screening scan so I have an appointment for that in mid-December. Then, a follow-up visit at the end of February.
On the way home from the doctor's office, I stopped to put gas to the car since I was closer to quarter tank of gas than to half a tank and I like to have at least half a tank of gas at all times. I put $40 worth of gas at $4.75/gal. at the cheapest gas station in my neighborhood.
Later in the afternoon, I did another load of laundry, texted friend A's daughter to check on A (she's still holding on, but, there is no improvement in her condition), spoke with friend R, and video chatted with my daughter.
Brunch had been a scrambled egg with bacon and fried potatoes. Dinner was the last of the turkey soup I had made earlier. I haven't really meal planned for this week, but, I took out some frozen chicken to thaw. My plan is to cook a chicken curry and, depending on how A is doing tomorrow, maybe take some rice and curry to her daughters. I will text them, first to see if they are up to having a visitor. I don't want to intrude on them at this time.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A good visit with the doctor
- The lab work results were mostly good
- A safe drive to the clinic and back
- The availability of gas
- Working appliances and a warm house
Today's joyful activity was video chatting with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include tending to the garden with M, cooking, and maybe visiting A and taking a home cooked meal to her family.
How was your Tuesday? What have you planned for Wednesday?
