Tests Tests and more Tests
It is the time again for my Annual Physical. This year since I turned 50 I have that dreaded Colonoscopy added. So far I have had my annual physical which was all good. Today I fasted and had my blood drawn for blood tests since I am on Cholesterol meds. I have deep veins and this morning the Phlebotomist could not find a vein in my arm so she took 2 tubes of blood from the back of my hand. It really wasn't that bad except now I have a big bruise on my hand. Back to the appointments. The end of the month I have my annual Mammogram and this year I also have to have a Bone Densitometry test. Tomorrow I go in for my consult for the Colonoscopy and then I hope to get that scheduled in April too. I also have a dentist appointment the end of the month to finish my root canal. So I have a lot of pokes and prods happening. PHEW....It is a lot of work getting old. Oh one more thing they also gave me an "Advance Directive" (forms to direct your health care if you are unable to make decisions) I plan on living 30 or 40 more years so I hope I don't need that anytime soon but it is a good thing to have.
