I lied in my last post…well, that’s not true…I didn’t lie. I was just wrong. I work this week and then we go to see my family…and then I work next week and then we see David’s family…and then we leave. Only 1.5 weeks of work left.
I’ve been quickly getting in all of my maintenance medical appointments while I have comprehensive medical coverage with a very small copay. Today I’m doing a Life Line Screening that I’ve been meaning to do for a few years now. It uses ultrasound technology to evaluate for stroke (carotid artery), atrial fibrillation, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease, and osteoporosis. This actually isn’t covered by insurance but I just want to do it to get baseline data and they happen to be offering it in my area this week. Tomorrow I’m having an eye exam so I can order more contact lenses. Then Monday I’m going to the dentist. Insurance with my new job is an HSA – a Health Savings Account. That basically means a very high deductible. No incentive financially to do preventitive care, so getting it all done now. I also ordered 2 months worth of hormones. I hope it’s a smooth transition to a new doc when I get out there.
Yesterday I ate shrimp and chopped clams cooked in bacon fat for lunch (with an almond cookie) and then for dinner I had cocoa crack. Not very nutritious and not optimal, but that’s what I wanted. And some chicken.
