This little bit of info was sent to me by my sister-in-law SewLady and my new update will be about my health...but you can enjoy this first, as I'm still waiting for my results...

The Alphabet
A
is for apple, and B is for boat,
That used to be right, but now it won't float!
Age before beauty is what we once said,
But let's be a bit more realistic instead.

Now The NEW Alphabet
A
is for arthritis;
B is the bad back,
C is the chest pains, Perhaps car-d-iac?
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line!
F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which I'd rather not mention.
H is for High blood pressure--I'd rather it low;
I is for incisions with scars you can't show.
J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.
L is for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I'll be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears!
U is for urinary; troubles with flow;
V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know.
W for worry, NOW what's going 'round?
X is for X ray, and what might be found.
Y for another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind.

*I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed, and I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!!!

THE HEALTH UPDATE:

October 3rd, I landed back into the hospital with angina pain! It seems it was enough to have to send me for STRESS testing again. It also turns out that my cholesterol levels are too high, not to mention, my blood pressure!

That damn word!

STRESS!

Like it isn't bad enough that my life/work isn't stressful enough, that one has to go through all of that testing AGAIN! They have appropriately called it STRESS!

The added STRESS being...I had to travel out of province in order to get it done soon enough? It's either: We have TOO many people that are having these problems or not enough machines to keep up?

Well, I had mine done on the 16th and 17th this month...in Edmonchuk. Thankfully I have family living there or the cost would have been a lot higher! Money STRESS!

The thought of traveling there was STRESSful!
Not having done much driving lately, I didn't feel confident enough to drive myself [would have to borrow someones car]. Weather conditions [snow] not to mention having to drive in the city... made it even more STRESSful! Do I take a bus/train? Someone would still have to drive me to their depots and pick me up!

Luckily my Ex wanted to do some Xmas shopping [plus needed my help doing it] and offered the use of his car, plus do the driving. All I had to do was foot the bill. The most STRESSful part was whether I could be around him long enough without being TOO STRESSed out? It turned out to be not to bad after all, but it did still have some STRESSful moments!

I did receive good news that the physical end [walking on the treadmill] was great and not to worry about that part. The picture taking of my heart, has yet to come back. The word was that my doctor will have that info in a couple of days. Hopefully that it will tell him why my blood pressure/cholesterol won't go down?

The only thing to do now is STRESS about waiting...!

I AM trying to think positive?
