Boy, the opportunities for growth just keep coming. The hours I spent yesterday and last evening turned out to be for naught. Ended up in a tangle with a bureaucratic agency. Had to reboot and come at this cleanup in a different way. Spent some more hours on it today. I am still unsure if my resolution will be accepted. I did manage to keep my peace through it all. I do believe I was still pleasant today, even after hours of data massaging.
I am hoping not be deterred from a bike ride this afternoon, as I was derailed early by a piece of lemon blueberry cheesecake that was BEYOND phenomenal.
More news on the medical front:
Chest x-rays came back fine. The NP wanted to get a baseline on me, as I was a thirty year smoker.
Blood test: to be run again in six weeks. White blood cell count down.
Vitamin D results: Very deficient. Now on VD3 2000 IU per day.
Disappointing news: Cholesterol numbers are elevated to what they were in 2007. Slightly. The recent weight loss and dietary changes didn't budge the LDL. Medication is not being advocated, but it's probably just a matter of time. Darn it!
The next work week should be even more opportunities for growth and patience.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Develop grace under fire.
