Tuesday Tangents, man flu…oh boy

MacGyver woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather.  Well, actually, he came home yesterday feeling a little under the weather and continues to feel bad today.  It’s nothing major, he’s just a little run down and feels crappy but in man speak, he’s practically dying.

And I’m over here like,

Stay out of my space bitch

I was sitting here in my little bubble just minding my own business doing some data entry and watching the lovely Tom Payne on Kelly and Ryan.  I got up to go to the bathroom and came back literally 2 minutes later and the lovely Tom Payne had turned into a long bearded fat man with a bow and arrow in the middle of a field somewhere in the mid west.

What is this crap?  Why am I forced to watch hunting shows and gear heads all day?  I hope this is a one day thing or this illness of his may quickly turn fatal.

I went to the dollar store last night because well, I go there practically every day but that’s not the point, the point is I got the cutest little dish towel.

Who says you can’t find quality at the dollar tree, that right there is a gem.

It looks like we’re going to be spared from any major wind or rain from Hurricane Michael and I have to say, I’m extremely grateful.  There is nothing worse than picking up storm debris including trees that weigh a shit ton.  No thank you.

I am saying prayers for all of those who will be affected and I hope that if you are told to evacuate you’ll heed the warning and do so.  Things can be replaced but you only get one life so cherish it and get the hell out of dodge.

The only good that has come from this hurricane is the temperature change.  It has been so much cooler the past few days.  I have been loving it.  I’ve even waited to run until quite a bit later in the morning and it wasn’t bad at all.  It’s still humid as all hell but it’s nicer.  I sure am looking forward to winter, all three days of it.

When you get sick are you a baby or a soldier?

Fitbit struggles from a healthy junky

So my damn fitbit hasn’t synced since late August.  I’ve tried every suggested fix short of losing all of my data and still nothing.  The next step includes a reset and that’s when I’ll lose all of my data so I’m sort of pissed.  I mean, I just got the damn thing back a few months ago.

Lately I’ve spent more time trying to sync and fix it than I have working out so I’m wondering what the breaking point is….

Ugh, gadgets.

Last week when I had my procedures the nurse had a bit of trouble finding my vein.  It wasn’t too terribly bad and she only missed once but she had to put the IV in my hand and I tend to bruise pretty bad there.

Hand

It isn’t painful, it just looks really bad {way worse than the pictures} but I’ve had mad fun with it.  Whenever I’m out and about and someone looks at me or says something, I make comments like, ‘yeah, I know, I need to find another vein’ and then I crack up at the side eye I get.

Do you bruise easy?

Any fitbit struggles for you?

Still waiting…got new shit though so there’s that.

Yesterday I really had had enough.  I just got sick of feeling breathless each and every time I picked up Hank or walked around the house.  It just makes no sense and so I called the doctor’s office.  Of course they could not fit me in until next week but since I told her I was having trouble catching my breath they said they could fit me in with the PA in the urgent care clinic.

fine

So I went over immediately and 15 minutes later I was in the office trying to explain to the PA what the problem is.  Of course he insisted my lungs sound fine and that I am in no immediate danger.  He said I should make sure I follow up with the pulmonologist in August and in the meantime workout when I can and rest when I cant.  He also said my blood pressure was high and I might want to talk to my doctor about it.

Mind you I just saw her 3 weeks ago and it was completely normal.  WTF?

So, still feeling breathless with no answers but I’m no in any immediate danger according to the guy who spent all of  minutes with me.  Thanks.

Fortunately by the afternoon things started to look up.  The mailman dropped off a package I had been waiting on.

shopping

Because when your hands are tied and you have to wait for appointments and test and you don’t feel up to running, you can always shop.  Shopping is the cure to all the worlds problems.

So I still have to wait but at least I have some new things to play with.

So when it comes to medical tests, having them and waiting for results, how patient are you?
