The lab report came back yesterday afternoon and the doctor and I had a little chat about the results. Seems that the infection is gone, which is a very good thing indeed, my other results are in line with expected readings. My blood pressure has returned to its normal 119/67 and my cholesterol is getting better now 155 with the good cholesterol higher than the bad. My blood sugar reading is 103 which is very good. The white blood cell count has returned to normal and there is no sign of infection. I am much relieved after getting this report. Being ill is a bitch it puts your life on hold until you get back to good health and preoccupies your mind day and night till it is over.

Now if only I can stay healthy and fit. I walk almost every day for forty-five minutes and I plan to add to that as time goes on. I am going to stay on my vegetarian diet with an occasional bit of flesh such as eggs to add some fat to my diet. I am trying to keep the sweet foods at a minimum we don’t need the added calories or sugar.

My next door neighbors left for Canada this morning I went with them to the local cantina/restaurant for breakfast other neighbors went also and we had a nice farewell. These folks are so nice I am lucky to have such nice neighbors. After saying our good-byes they were off to British Columbia and I was off to town to get cash out of the ATM, do a little grocery shopping and check in with the “Old Gringos” at our favorite restaurant Chumpos in San Felipe.

Today the weather has been very nice, the wind is gone and so is the blowing dust and sand……. YAY šŸ™‚

    Glad to hear the good news about your tests. We should always strive to keep our spirits up and cutting down on the sugar is a good thing.

  2. It is hard to cut down on sugar when you have a sweet tooth….. I think I have two of them šŸ˜¦

  3. Sounds like you are doing what needs to be done to stay healthy. When you go on your RV trip keep me posted just in case we are close enough for a visit..

    • I won’t be leaving here for my annual trip for a few weeks yet. I’ll keep you up to date of when I leave and where I am going.

  4. Good to hear your health is OK

    • I was happy to get a good report too šŸ™‚ I’m at that age when things begin to wear out and go to hell so a good report is something to cheer about!
