||And another day ends
Posted on August 26th, 2008
|Today's errand was a trip to the doctor. This was basically just a checkup with a few extras. That lump in my mouth never went away, so he took another look at it. His opinion was to simply give it more time to go away on its own. The other major thing was to shift the handling of my blood pressure meds over to him. My cardiologist's office is now miles away, and everything's stable, so why make the drive? I weighed in at 210 pounds, another 15 pounds since my last visit. My blood pressure was 124/84. Even that blooper at McDonald's Sunday didn't cause it to spike!
After the doctor's we went to the pharmacy. It took 35 minutes to fill a single prescription. They were rather busy with the drive through apparently. Also, their express problem service bungled the automatic payment again.
We had lunch at McDonald's again. This time my order was figured better, totaling 650 calories, 1050 sodium.
The rest of the day was spent experimenting and thinking. I need to recode Din to work with the new version of the compiler, and so I've been testing ideas. I discovered a potent new trick today, so Din will be getting altered to reflect it.
In other news, a politician's wisecrack was not very well received and a number of animals got drunk on rotten fruit.
