The follow up with one of the hospital providers at the clinic,yesterday, wasn't too much info. She explained the ultrasound sludge results. Said best to follow up with a specialist and I said we are, he had an appointment with the GI specialist on Wednesday. She didn't realize he had already gotten in to see one. Basically, the specialist will get the ultrasound results and do the endoscopy and see what he thinks. The endoscopy got scheduled for 9/23. Just down the corridor from where he had the ultrasound. He told her he is still very tired and no energy. She said that they say it takes 3-4 days for each day of hospital stay to recover all the way, once out, so she would expect him to be tired for awhile. She suggested a multi vitamin and a 2000 iu Vitamin D daily.
She did say that the blood work they did while he was in the hospital showed his cholesterol was good. We both at the same time were like REALLY?!! that was a huge surprise. At one time 6 or so years ago his was up over 300. His dr put him on simvastatin and that totally made his muscles ache even more. Then tried Crestor and ended up reducing the Crestor to like 5 mg or something very low. He took that very expensive med for a year or two. After we moved here and he went for a checkup with a town doctor she said it was still somewhat high and wanted to increase the dose. He explained to her why he wouldn't/couldn't, that he had already tried that. She still put the prescription in at full dose. I called and talked to her nurse and both were just being turds about it. Said she wouldn't prescribe it for the dose he had been taking it, so he told her then he's not taking it. The pills are too tiny to cut in half. So, I guess all these past few years of no fast food (rarely now) has helped, along with he did lose some weight compared to what he was before we built our house.
We've been trying to fill in our island area with pine cones, around the trees and plants. DH sent neighbors down the street a text last night that said will pay top dollar and otter pops for a wheelbarrow of pinecones (they are everywhere on the 3 vacant lots) delivery by a smiling kid, haha. I think he will be finding pincecones and delivering a load today :) I'm sure he will be tickled to have a paying job.
DH thought that maybe the reason we didn't get the toll road bills in the mail was because his truck permanent license plate still had our old PO Box from a few years ago. We stopped in the court house yesterday to check and she said no, when he renewed his drivers license a few months ago those registrations updated in their system, too. There are 2 ladies that work in the vehicle licensing/title part. One was helping a couple, who from the sounds of it, had recently moved to the area from Oregon. As we were leaving dh said to me have you ever noticed that people from WA and OR always want/need to give your their resume? haha. ya, it is true. Almost everyone we meet from there, that are now here, are like that. After that couple left, the other lady came over and chatted with us. (DH is also friends with her husband). When we left I said well I guess we are "locals" now when we know the people and can stand there and chat/catch up with them, haha.
I finally got my annual check up scheduled for next Wednesday afternoon. Let's hope I can keep it this time.
