Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Thursday, January 8, 2009


A couple of weeks ago Inklings got the results of some tests she had done at the hospital. Among a few other things like hypertension and diabetes there was a line that simply said HEART FAILURE. At the end of the results there was a note to make an appointment to discuss the tests with her Doctor within the next two weeks---yeah right---he has been out of the office that long.

Today she finally got in to see him---the diagnosis today is GREAT---everything is OK. Her Colessterol is a little high but her HDL is pretty high so not to worry there. Hypertension diagnosis was from discussion with technician who put it down because she talked about the grand kids and what they were doing. Diabetes because of the same discussion where Inklings told her she had been diagnosed but was always borderline. HEART FAILURE came from Tech noticing Inklings had swollen ankles.

I believe that all of these were put on the mailer to assure Inklings made an appointment with the Doctor.

HOW DO I FEEL ABOUT THIS????? I ought to be really pissed at the Doctor but can't hardly quit smiling knowing it was not a Doctor's diagnosis of the tests. Guess I could be pissed at the Lab Tech but that wouldn't do anything. I am just thankful that it isn't as it appeared---GLAD YOU ARE OK INKLINGS---you can buy all the fish oil vitamins the Doctor wants you to take---

Scotts are over $100/month for the ones he has to take.
After insurance.
But it's helping, and his blood tests are almost normal now.
