In all my celebrating this past week of babies and birthdays, I also had a doctor’s appt. The old annual physical. I guess if I tell of my health conundrums here, I should not be distracted by all of this other stuff from reporting on how the health stuff is going.
As one gets older the annual physicals get less attractive. There is no automatic bill of health. The weight or the blood pressure is up too much and there are always a bunch of lab tests and sometimes worse procedures to anticipate.
This year I think I am actually healthier than the past one. So it was not too bad. The weight was down a bit. Blood pressure the same. No new medications to add to the list except a small dose of ASA as a precaution (I guess the use of low dose aspirin is still in some dispute). All the tests on my heart function seem to come back as essentially normal.
So, I guess I am good to go till the next event!
