I’ve been going to my Internist religiously every quarter, and today was the appointed date. As you very well know (those that have been reading this journal for quite sometime), I’ve been battling hypertension and been taking meds for quite sometime, thus the need for close monitoring.
I was taken in as soon as I got to the doctor’s office, but this didn’t mean anything (meaning, I’d be done quick). As usual, regular blood work up has to be done, ECG and the whole nine yards. Something I’m really used to already. The whole agony of waiting for my Harvard alumni Internist was mind boggling. There I was, alone inside the examination room, in my lab gown just patiently waiting. I swear, I could have gone to sleep as I was lying down already. Then, I finally got my turn, Dr. G came into the examination room and did a thorough physical check . My Internist was pleased with the blood pressure reading. Thank God! Best of all, he must be confident everything is fine because I’m gonna be back not in three months, but in four months for the next check-up.
I felt so good upon hearing this. When I walked out of the physician’s office, I passed by a fruit stand and got some fruits. I don’t normally buy un-peeled fresh pineapple, as I dread the thought of doing the peeling but today, I was all for it.
I must have been really in a good mood today, that I even baked this cassava cake.
Just hoping it’s edible *lol* . We’ll have it for our late “treat” tonight.
