Yesterday and today have been very black days healthwise. I got the results from the physical and the it is not a happy picture right now. The osteoporosis is much worse in my spine, but surprisingly better in the hip. That is the bright news. The lipid panel was as dismal as I've ever had. So much for quitting smoking. All the dire warnings about smoking have come true, except I haven't smoked in a year and a half. Oh well, it is time to go pick up the prescriptions for the out of control triglycerides and decreased HDL (all this has been fine for many years including last year of smoking) and one of the scrips is for nicotinic acid. Go figure. Also, my cat is going to LOVE me. The only osteoporosis treatment I would agree to is a nasal spray made of salmon. There were just too many drawbacks with Fosamax, such as osteonecrosis of the jaw where you lose the bottom jaw and that would be just so inconvient with trying to eat and all. So anyway, onward and upward.
And if you are coming to my blog and getting pops, I have done NOTHING to make them be there. Some people have stopped coming by because of that. I have to say I don't have the skills to hijack anyone with an annoying pop. So, come if you will or not. This apparently is only for me to post my joys and sadness to the universe with no hope of hearing anything back.
