Doctors Orders

Ok well I'm back!  I went to the doctor on Monday July 2th (finally )for my emergency room visits in May.  He has me on High Cholesterol medicine , seeing a dietitian next Tuesday and I am ordered to do 1hr of cardio exercise four times per week!

Now those orders of the cardio came to me without him getting to know my history of arthritis in knees and hips and chronic bronchitis. He was just taking care of the first symptom that got me to hospital, the tingling and chest pain. I gave him my reports from the ER and he just jumped on the cholesterol. I am having full blood test ran including a thyroid test and he gave me a referral for ob/gyn for the lump in my female region.

In meantime, I agree we need to take care of the Cholesterol so we can then deal with any symptoms remaining.

I decided that I am taking a walk every morning for at least a half an hour, building it up to an hour. I will also start swimming lapse for a half an hour every evening.

In three months time, I expect to FEEL and LOOK much better!
