Medical stuff

Medical and Cooking Blog

I went to the doctor's today for bloodwork. I was supposed to go yesterday, but yesterday was Purim, so I moved it back to Friday. And you might remember the little blizzard we had on Friday. I made it to work, but doctor? Not so much. And remember, my bloodwork needs to be done fasting.

So, I went this morning. This is to check if the Byetta is working. They took two blood samples, gave me a bone density test (used my non-dominant hand, which is my left hand, and made me remove the wedding ring. Of course, as a cook, a knitter and a writer, I use both hands) and an EKG.

To take the EKG, I had to remove my blouse and my tights. So I'm in a skirt, underwear and a kerchief and beret, I'm alone, and there's a scale right there. So, you know. I got on. I weigh 186 pounds. I haven't weighed under 190 in more years than I can remember. It's the Byetta. I'm eating like a bird. Jonathan thinks I'm not eating at all, which is untrue. I'm eating all of breakfast, at least half of lunch and some portion of dinner. And, not nauseated anymore.

Results in a week.
