Whats up with me?

I was coming home from the lab this morning after having my blood work done and had the perfect idea for todays "Medical" post.  Got home, started chores and now I haven no idea what so ever what it was.  So I will just tell you all about some things going on around here.

Today I had blood work.  My Dr called me a few hours ago to let me know that my INR was a 2.6.  So no change in doses and I don't have to go back for a whole month!  Heck yeah!  I hate when my blood goes crazy and I'm back on weekly draws.  My veins don't even have time to heal!  They are getting ready for a vacation!

Tomorrow I have blood work for the transplant team.  Plus an MRI.  So that means, one arm is going to get stuck twice.  And Ill probably bruise but not biggie.  I get scans done before every liver clinic appointment.  And sometimes from multiple doctors.  So I'm looking at over 15 scans in the last 3 years.  Don't even get me counting ultrasounds because I had over 30 just while I was pregnant.  At one point I was keeping track but lost count!

I don't have clinic until next month, but by doing my scans and labs early, we can go over the results when I get there.  God I hope MY doctor is there.  I have a few questions that I know he will take the time to answer unlike the other Drs who seem to just rush though the appointment.  I hate that.

I'm still working on my goals for the month.  Gotta step in up (literally) seeing as its the 23 and Ive only done 14 out of 30 miles.  And I'm working on the new food part.  My book will be here tomorrow.  I love Janet Evanovich. I know I will have no problem reading the whole book in a day or 2!  So if I go missing, there will be a 80% chance I will be hiding somewhere with my face buried in a book!

What are some of your goals this month/year?  Have you stuck to them so far?  Wishing you all a wonderful week!
