Still here!

Still here, my friends - just been running crazy. I'll update soon - until then I'll bore you with some medical stuff.

I had a physical last week - and of the many tests run, I had a cholesterol reading. I've never had a cholesterol test in my life, and knowing that I have always loved to eat junk (LOL) I really didn't know what to expect.

The nurse called me with my results and said everything was just where they want it to be. My LDL is 97, HDL is 48 and overall reading is 159.

I'll be honest - I don't know what those numbers mean. And since I'm all factoidy, I looked it up.

For LDL, less than 100 is optimal. (I am 97)
For HDL, 40-59 is optimal. (I am 48)
For overall reading, less than 200 is optimal. (I am 159)

So - science confirms what we already know. I am pretty close to perfect. ;)

Be careful, hon. The last time someone claimed to be perfect, he was hung on a cross. Try going a day without brushing your teeth or something, so you can tone it down some. Otherwise, I like looking atcha.

No no, not perfect! I'd never claim that. Just "close" - ;) (said with thick sarcasm, as I KNOW I'm far from it - LOL)

Coffeypot - I take that statement very personally. Jesus wasn't hung on a cross because He said He was perfect - and come to think of it, I don't think He ever SAID He was. He was hung on the cross because He said He was the King of the Jews.

Thanks for reminding me. I had bloodwork done a couple of weeks ago. I guess I should call for the results. Apparently they didn't find anything earth-shattering. LOL

Miss ya, chick. Know you've got your hands full with your dad and all. Just know I'm thinking about you. :)
