Dodged a Bullet

Threaded View
I saw my doctor today, the results of my EKG and
echo-cardiogram do not show heart damage or congestive heart
failure. I still have to lose some weight and get my
cholesterol and blood pressure numbers down, but my heart
should last another 30 years or so.  YAY!!!

And Ursula, I went to the post office and got the custom
forms and other information I need in order to send you the
package.  I tried to research it online and just got a bunch
of broken links.  Bah!

I'm soooo glad to hear that! Really, what do they think, scaring you out of
your wits with such hints of congestive heart failure! I chime in and shout
'HOORAY!'

Ah yes, info on postal things... It's amazing how postal services all over
the worlds are similar. There's always something faulty; here in Germany,
the Mail gave up their own branches and outsourced them into shops and such.
The effect is that the shop owners who run the business now are not always
up to the height of info. Local TV brought a feature about a man who shipped
a valuable item of jewellery within Germany which got promptly lost. German
Mail refused to pay since he wasn't supposed to ship something that valuable
in their packs. Would it surprise you to hear that the person in the P.O.
told him it was OK to do so? Anyway, I'm not as fast, but I'm working at it,
so in due course you will receive something, too. ;-)

Thanks!  However, the doc can hardly be blamed, he just
reported what the test showed.  I am relieved he ordered the
additional tests!

This was just weird.  The online links to the custom forms
were broken.  I could have printed them off and saved one
trip, but <shrug>...

Anyway, I'll get over to the post office again tomorrow.
I'll let you know if I can get a tracking number so you can
watch for it.

Weigh package, fill in green form with correct weight and nominal value
(for UK under 18GBP avoids import duty & tax), tick GIFT on green label,
address package, affix green label, take whole shebang to PO. :-)

Yes, I know that NOW.  The kindly postmaster provided the
form and all the instructions.  I was just bummed I could
not access the form online so I could print it and save a
trip.

I think in Europe we are so used to sending packages abroad that we
assume everyone knows how the system works.

Re: Dodged a Bullet
Beverly, I am happy to know you had such good report from your doctor

I see the regular doctor tomorrow, & the cardiologist on Sept. 8th; but I
will see the eye-surgeon on Saturday.  He comes to the office in this area
some Saturdays, as does the foot doctor; I am very glad they do since DS's
schedule is hectic sometimes, so every little bit helps.

Best wishes.  Is the eye-surgeon appointment a follow-up to
your cataract surgery?

Re: Dodged a Bullet
Yes, it is actually been 10-months since the first surgery and 9-months
since the 2nd eye was done.  I already know I need new lenses; hopefully, he
will do the check-up Saturday.  I have a lot of fluid draining from one eye,
too, that he will check.

The regular doctor said not much difference in my general health; he gave me
more blood thinner and is concerned about the fluid in my ankles, as usual;
but most of the tests were okay.

After I see the cardiologist next month, then I will know how I've done the
past 6-months; and if any other medicines need adjusting.

Oh, dear, not good.  Maybe it is just a blocked tear duct.
I have been struggling with that for a few months, it's
irritating but not dangerous.

The new BP med my doctor prescribed has really taken off the
water-weight.  My "cankles" are about as slender as they
ever were...  which isn't saying much.

Sending good wishes your way.  I am very happy, the
cholesterol drug my doctor finally insisted I started taking
dropped my total cholesterol from 260 to 193 in just a
month.  <sigh>  I really resisted taking it, but obviously
diet and exercise were not enough.

Re: Dodged a Bullet
I've never had a problem with cholesterol, even though I am over weight, but
not like in the past.  It's the blood pressure, and the arterial
fibrillation plus diabetes, which I control to a large extent without
medication.
