1st Doc appt in 6 months
« on: January 08, 2007, 03:47:54 PM »
Tomorrow.

I havent had labs done in 6 months.  I am off tomorrow for new blood work.  I am expecting everything to be ok. But we shall see.  My major pressing issue with my health at THIS point is 1.  Im fatter than id like and 2. i have REALLY dry cracked feet.  NASTY HUH!!!

Keri lotion applied to the feet should slowly take care of the problem if it's from dry skin.  That and shorter showers in hot water.  Win (who is always glad to hear about getting labs done every six months)

We'll be waiting for those lab results.

Overweight? That's one of the privileges of the first year of marriage.

You looked pretty foxy in those wedding photos. Have you been sneaking down to the kitchen late at night or what?

Cracked feet are nothing to ignore. They can become quite painful. My dermatologist recommended AcidMantle, which he said he uses. ( I haven't checked his feet to see how he's doing.)  It is sold over the counter, is good for restoring skin, pH balancer, rough, dry and scaly skin and absolutely delicious with cherry syrup. No, skip that last one. But it is very effective if applied regularly and not overly goopy. Unless you happen to like goopy.

Cheers, buddy,

AC,

Geez, you're as bad as I am about putting off labs!!  When I saw my doc a coupla weeks ago he wrote the date for the next bloodwork to be done on the lab request so I wouldn't "forget."  Go get that prick, son!!

I don't have unduly dry feet but the heel calluses could be used on the shell of a space shuttle.
