I had a post all prepared last week.
A day in advance which was a real first for me!
When we started thinking about moving,
it was shocking how many people asked us
"How's the medical care there in rural VA?"
Geez are we that old?
Nobody's asking about the nightlife?
Quite a few people asked about whether
we were going to put an elevator in the house.
I mean do we look like old geezers or what?
Humph we thought....
What do we need to worry about all that for?
We're both the picture of health, no vices, no meds.
Perfect cholesterol, great blood pressure,
normal blood sugar.....
boring, boring, boring.
So let's just say that that adage about
"All (good?) things come to he who waits"
has come to pass here in VA.
Joe had two ER visits
and then finally a trip to Roanoke
where he had a heart catheterization last week.
no interventions such as stents, balloons etc were necessary
but he needs to start working with a cardiologist
to be proactive
and not let the moderate blockages that he has get worse.
And hopefully it was a wakeup call
for us to kick up our already fairly healthy lifestyle
several big notches.
Few things are worse about droning on over medical issues.
So that's all I'm saying about the week.
No photos of Joe in his hospital gown
Aren't you all glad?
