Test results

Last week I had the comprehensive blood/urine workup that my doctor ordered done. I just got the results back. Vitamin D deficiency, mild high triglycerides and borderline anemia. Joy. The triglycerides aren't a major concern since all the other cholesterol numbers are OK, but other two need some work. Part of the vitamin D deficiency is probably because I haven't been out in the sun nearly as much as I ought to be, and I think the iron deficiency is because I've been slacking off on the multivitamin supplements I normally take. That may also explain the lethargy, come to think of it. I may need to add an iron supplement to my list too.

Computer room

The computer room is basically set up and all the computer are running. Yay! I have my normal working environment back at least.

Doctor's visit

Visited my primary care physician today for the first time. Went well. I'm off the Pepcid and Lopressor, they were just carry-overs from the hospital who give them to prevent problems while you're there. I'm also tapering off the Neurontin, cutting the dose in half every 7 days over the next 4 weeks. Hopefully I won't need it anymore.

I'm also scheduled for a bunch of lab tests and a visit to a neurologist to check on the nerve weirdness in my feet. I'm hoping this won't turn up anything bad.

Moving day

We got the big stuff from the old apartment moved to the new one today, and got the furniture delivered and set up. All we've got left to move is some small stuff from the old apartment and what's at the hotel. But there's still a few glitches with the new apartment, some leaks and a missing dishwasher (appliance-company screw-up, what they delivered wasn't what the management ordered). We're not sure whether we'll start staying there tomorrow night or early in the week. We'll see how things go.
