Visit to the doc

So... Last week, Tuesday to be exact... I'm driving to San Diego for meetings and such. And I got a funky burning pain in my chest. Nothing incapacitating mind ya... just really annoying - cuz now I can't concentrate properly on all the freaks and automotively challenged morons...

Lasted maybe a half hour or so. By the time I'd made the meetings and pulled in at my doctors office, it was just slightly more than anecdotal.

So doc - I call her ma'am by the way. Not out of respect... but out of trepidation. She don't let me slide on nothin this lady... Anyway, doc sent me off to the lab for blood work and EEG's and such. Gave me a scrip for some plain aspirin and sent me on my merry way.

Well, the tests are all in this morning and doc calls me in for the results and treatment plan...

It appears I have elevated HDL's and plaque in my arteries. No big deal... I ain't gonna die or nothin... Doesn't need surgery... Just needs some tender lovin care is all.

So, I get scripts for stuff to lower my HDL, a blood thinner, more motrin. a couple other unpronounceable concoctions... and a new diet.

"Oh friggen wonderful" I'm thinkin... "Rice cakes and cardboard... Leafy green rabbit food and more green tea..."

Ok, so it's not quite that bad. I can still have meat... I just gotta keep it reasonable and (uhhnnnnn) cooked well done. YUCK! It's flesh ffs! It's SUPPOSED to bleed!

So I ask doc about alcohol... We do live in a wine valley here after all... And BONUS! I can have 2 a day!

"Bottles?" I ask...

The look was whithering... lol

"Glasses mister." She says "WINE glasses."

She don't let me slide for shit

Poor baby.. all that cave dude living caught up w/you. FYI, you travel tons, so the 1 baby aspirin per day is a good thing as a normal precautionary measure.....I am sure she gave you the riot act (as my pop would say) and went through all of the do's and don'ts. Stress is also a contributor to ^ HDL levels... so, that is why, even fine looking in shape male cave dudes such as yourself can still suffer and have problems.. but you can actually reverse and make all better. So, do what she tells you to do, curb your eating a full side of a bison each day, and eat your vegs and bran cereal/grains. [also, w/so much "meat" going down, you could have developed that ole typically white male disorder.. crap.. can't think of what it is called. but british white guys use to get all the time way back when.causes swelling in the feet and lower legs.. young white modern guys are getting it now too - too much animal protein in their diets - watch those Carl's $5 dollar burgers for god sakes...]

Please take care of yourself! Not to sure it would be a good idea for 2 botthes, but perhaps maybe an extra glass or so wouldn't hurt! lol.

    Ummm...you do know I'm siding with the Dr on this one baby-
    two GLASSES only.

    If it were up to me, you'd get none.
    How d'ya like them apples?

    But then of course I'd make it up to you by way of taking your mind off it with that long and slow thang you love so much.

Oh alright... 2 glasses tops. And not them big german half gallon ones either... Deal?
