Wish I saw this last week
This one definitely fits this week.
Hallelujah, the election is over and we don’t have to hear or see any more political ads every 2 minutes. It is a mixed blessing because there are those who are completely stunned Hillary lost and Donald Trump won. There are others who are over the moon Trump won – then there are those in between to different degrees. I didn’t vote for either one – I wrote in a name. Sometimes I wish they had a selection that says “None of the above”. That is true of the issues as well as candidates. What I don’t understand are the Hillary supporters sitting in the streets like a spoiled brat having a tantrum because she or he isn’t get what they wanted. Get over yourself!!! If you didn’t vote, you have no right to complain because you didn’t exercise your privilege and responsibility to vote.
What happened to civility and being a gracious loser or winner? One doesn’t always have things the way they want – suppose it turns out to be the best thing for you. It may take time. but as I say on my radio show – “In every difficult situation is a gift waiting for you to discover”. I have been wondering if we have needed a shaking up to rebalance the country. We have had great presidents, terrible ones and everything in between and our country is still here. Instead of being afraid and full of fear, concentrate on what you can do and trust the Universe. It may sound simplistic, simple isn’t always easy. Your thoughts become things and negative thoughts, words and actions bring more of the same. Here’s a strange concept – only have positive, loving and empowering thoughts, words and actions. As for me, I don’t watch the news much – too negative even in good times.
Enough of that, we are all saturated with the whole thing. Actually, it has been a positive week for me, though I have spent most of it going to doctors. My Tuesday appointment with the cardiologist didn’t happen. Threw was an accident on the other side of the 1st Ave bridge – I was in traffic for an hour and a half and half an hour late for my appointment. I called to let them know – they thought I would be there in 10 minutes. As I got to the doctor’s office, my phone rang – she was calling to see where I was and that they would have to reschedule. I talked to a very nice young woman and they gave me an appointment for Thursday morning. Naturally when I went home, traffic was light and one would never know there was a problem.
I was early on Thursday for the appointment. I had an echocardiogram and they called to tell me there were some abnormalities – not something I want to hear. I had them send the results to Doc Pierce, he said he didn’t think it was anything to worry about. Dr. Ali was really nice and she told it straight without big words. Essentially there is some stiffness in my heart that is simply from aging. she isn’t concerned about it but she wants to know how the flow in my blood vessels is, cholesterol numbers don’t tell her. She wants me to do a scan – not covered by insurance – that will give her a better if I need a statin or not. She was pleased to see my blood pressure is good, that I didn’t smoke or drink – all good indicators. She wants to see me in 8 weeks – it is up to me if I do the test. I will probably do it so I know what the situation is and if it is necessary to do anything.
I saw my dermatologist Tuesday afternoon for a check up. I am finished with basel cell surgery and have healed quite well. She was pleased with the results – she has seen noses that didn’t come out too well and I am the second one from Dr. Bradley she says looks great. Now she wants me to do a cream twice a day to bring up the little red spots as well as those below the skin that could be cancerous in time. She did say I would probably look very spotty about the second week, but it would take care of them 85%. I thought sure shoe would be trigger happy with the nitrogen, bit she thinks the cream will help. A week or so of spotty is small compared to MOHS surgery. She also checked my legs – they are healed and looking a lot better. I use the CirAids around my lower legs and it has helped a lot. I was weighed this week and I have lost 10 pounds compared to Doc Pierce’s scale.
Friday I went to the orthopedic surgeon I saw for my broken arm. As I was checking in, it seemed to be dicey about payment – no way was I going to pay and have them reimburse me, been there, done that. They are the most obstreperous group I have ever dealt with using my PIP coverage. I told her I am doing fine, I am not doing the reverse shoulder replacement because I’m scared, so I really don’t have to see him. And I left.
I also had fun doing my radio show on Tuesday – I talked about elections and voting. I talked about where I have voted and how it was done, as well as my experience Australia. The next couple of shows I have guests – this coming week is Krysta Gibson and next week my attorney friend Dave Gagley. I have some other ideas for guests, so I am going tp contact them this week.
It definitely was a good week for me. I hope it was for you.
