Update

I had a visit with my physician this morning.  He ordered a CBC, Random Glucose, Thyroid Function, and a Stress Test.  

He said that some people have a high calcium score and have no heart problems, and others have no calcium and have a heart attack.  He felt that I had only one (1) heart disease risk - family history.  That my health is generally very good.  My BP is 110/78.  My pulse ox is 96%.  My heart rate is low.  My weight is 1_7 lbs.  Oh, there's a missing number!  Oh well.  

We shall see what the blood tests and stress test reveal.  I haven't even scheduled the stress test yet.  

I got a new medication for migraines.  

I got some baby aspirin to take every single day for my blood.

Right now I feel really good.  I made some phone calls today to people who could use an encouraging word and didn't know anything about my health issues.   It was good to talk with them.  

I have Biblical School tonight.  And I swear to you, I am going to run tomorrow morning.  

And maybe blog later tonight?

You're strong as an ox. But you're NOT as young as you used to be.
Slow down and enjoy the many years you have left.

So good to hear that today's results all looked good.

Weight 1_7 - I laughed and laughed - oh, how a woman!

God bless!

Excuse--I Emailed you before I received your updated blog. It all sounds pretty good for a 1_7 pound weakling.

Do we fill in the missing number, and the winner gets a prize? I pick the non-number ZERO (107), do I get a prize?

Yes, you need to run. I don't know why that is so, but I know that you seem to be more YOU when you get your runs in.

Glad you're feeling a little better. But, Easy Does It, okay?

I've learned that I have limits on things now. Too much and I crash. Maybe the body is telling you something. Mine tells me things that I don't want to hear some days.
