Boring Medical, Rain, Bear Joke,

Well I am sick and tired of all this stuff so I am quite sure you must be. Went to family doc, she is sending me back to vascular surgeon. Will see what happens when that happens. Went for bone density as well, have shrunk another 2 1/2 inches - honey I shrunk myself LOL.

We got some more rain this evening (Monday) we have not been over indulged with the wet stuff this summer. Got plenty of it today.

Don't think I mentioned the student pharmacist I was interviewed by last week. Really nice young woman called Emma. Our topics ranged all over the place. Told her about the lions eating the poachers and the idiot man who got out of the car to take close ups of lions. She mentioned the bears which were in the news being fed. I said "you do know what to do if a bear charges you?" her response, jump about and yell etc. No, said I, if a bear charges you just pay him. She cracked up. I was surprised she had never heard it before, it is an oldie after all. She really had great problems stopping laughing.!!

Threw together some stuff I had in the freezer with some veg. Not a very exciting day. Right now too lazy to find a recipe, sorry.

Going to Mandarin for lunch Tuesday.

Have a great day

  1. I can't help but think that if you are having leg issues and are shrinking that your problem with your legs is from the nerves in your spine. I have disc degeneration throughout my spine and have lost an inch in height. I have had several issues with nerve compression causing leg issues. Have they checked that out?

    1. Not yet Denise, but I guess that's why I was sent for a bone density exam. I will bear it in mind.

  3. Two of my sisters have problem with bone density. I'm lucky to have 'man' bones in the words of my doctor. Hope they figure out what happened with your legs and those medical issues get figured out.

    1. You are lucky Susan. I hope they figure out something soon, I beginning to get a tad fed up.

  4. I hope the vascular surgeon can help and the bone density test is clear.

    I hadn't thought about the shrinkage as we age. Haven't measured my height in years but since I have herniated discs in my back and osteoporosis I suppose I should.

    1. Thanks Helen, you and me both. They seem to dish out bone density tests to all older women here.

    1. She certainly cracked up when I told her Birgit. It's one I have always enjoyed.
