11/30 Good and not-so-good news from doc

Had my annual physical this morning. The great news is that I've lost 20 pounds since the last time they weighed me (late August) and also my blood pressure (normally around 120/70 which is high normal) is 104/60. I almost kissed my doctor at that one.

The not-so-good news is that I have degenerative arthritis. No big deal. I've had osteoarthritis for years and haven't let it stop me from doing anything I want to do. But now I have this stupid stupid stupid bump on my finger. I thought it was an injury from doing a pratfall at CSz. I remember throwing myself on the floor, getting up and telling a teammate that I'd hurt my finger a little. Turns out I didn't hurt it. That's just the time that I noticed it. Drat. There goes my career as a hand model.

(Did Blogger have the hiccups this morning??? I get it as a live feed and there were three entries.) Sorry about the career loss. I know you would have risen to the top rank among hand models. ::sigh:: Such is life. (Arthritis sucks, too.)

Yep. I posted it once and it appeared twice, plus two drafts. I haven't checked into what the problems were. But I deleted the "extras."

So you're one of the "afflicted," huh? We can talk about this on HW.
