Sooooo, I went to the doctor yesterday. During my visit I told her about my ankle/toe/knee problems. She ordered up a set of bloodwork that I needed to have done. I walked out of her office went down the hall and got my blood work done. How about I had to give 6 tubes of blood!? How about I darn near acted a fool when she pulled out those tubes. All the staff was laughing because I was like, "dangit, I guess she's going to teach me a lesson about complaining." She most certainly did. The blood work nurse {can't remember her fancy title} had a really hard time trying to find my veins because they are super tiny, so she called everybody over and we made it a group project- fun times man. Anyway, I made it through without whining and went about my merry way waiting for my results. Less than 24 hours later, I have my results. Gosh darn and all the heck some of my numbers are off the freaking chart. I was on the phone with my momma when I read them. I kept laughing and she kept talking about me dyeing her hair for her tomorrow, you know keep it normal, cuz worrying doesn't change a thing. There is one test that I'm waiting on the results for. Funny thing is, yesterday the doctor told me,"if it's abnormal, they send it out to another lab, but it'll be back by Monday, and then I'll email you about seeing a rheumatologist if you need to." I was looking at her yesterday like whatever, whatever, now I don't even know what that test is for, lol. Listen with your ears boys and girls when the doctor is talking. Hey, no worries here though, all the diseases I can prevent, I have prevented. I used to have high cholesterol and I was anemic- no more my friends :) Diabetes and high blood pressure run in my family- but not me my friends :) I take care of my body the way I'm supposed to and God will do the rest. Ain't no stupid Lupus going to take me down! I'm going to the fair tonight and I'm leaving for my cruise Saturday morning. Praise Jesus I'm alive and well and truly enjoying life :)
