They must be somebody else’s test results, but I’ll take ’em.
For the first time in my life, I passed a test with flying colors, and I didn’t even have to study.
The doctor ordered a heart scan and blood work and a stress test. (“Hell, no,” I said, “if it’s runnin‘, I ain’t doin‘ it.” But, apparently, I am going to do it the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. That way, I can die on the treadmill before eating mashed potatoes with gravy. Anyway…)
We had time to do the scan, and the blood work despite the fact that I stuck in a piece of Wrigley’s Spearmint gum after fasting for 12 hours because I had no idea one stick of gum could effect your triglycerides. If one piece of gum could effect my triglycerides, what about the packs of M & M’s I’ve been eating since Halloween? Anyway…
They said I’m not overweight, which is the first shock. Then, they said that that my scan showed my arteries have a score of zero. 0! I can’t even believe it. No build up of cholesterol, plaque, or other assorted blocks in there whatsoever. Not to say they won’t build up if I don’t put a stop to cheeseburgers real soon. Or, worrying.
In the meantime, I thank the Lord for showing me that a.) the worrying I do is completely ineffective and b.) my heart is still withstanding any anxiety that I can’t entirely set at the curb.
As to NaBloPoMo? I think it was kind of silly to sign up for that. There’s no way I can lay out an interesting post every. single. day. Can one do NaBloPoMo like, 78%?
