Today was another fantastic weather day -- super sunshine-y and high temps in the low 70s. Can't ask for more, except more days just like this one.
I headed over to Beaumont Hospital this morning for my Vascular Screening and was out of there lickety split fast. In only a half hour I had my carotids, abdomen and legs scanned with the ultrasound, followed by my EKG, blood pressure (definitely on the high side for me at 138/77), high body fat (not sharing that number today), and finally had a couple of vials of blood drawn to check for cholesterol and blood sugar. I hadn't had anything to eat since 9 PM last night so both of the blood tests should yield valid results.
Speaking of results, I should get a report in about a week or two and I'll share that with you when I do.
The technician seemed to spend a LOT of time on my left carotid artery so I'm not sure if that means anything or not. At least they didn't call for a gurney to have me admitted!
It's been about 3 years since I last had my cholesterol checked and I'd be willing to bet it's a tad high. Ok, it might be a lot high. I do love my cheese.....
I've been knitting on my Sneaky Sheep exchange item that is due by next month's BSKG meeting. It will be a 'home' item as opposed to something you wear. No hints on what it is or whose name I drew but here's a progress picture that doesn't give away too much ~~
I'll be working on it this weekend as well as attempting to get my taxes done. Less than 4 weeks left to go!
