Doctor Appointment Results

Well, my fears and suspicions have been confirmed.

I went to the doctor's office for my appointment early this afternoon, and things came out pretty much as I expected. The doctor listened to my chest and stuff, checked my ears and throat, and told me that there was definite "crackling" in my right lung and some in the left, and confirmed that I've got bronchitis. He reassured me that it's not as bad as it might be, but that a course of antibiotics was called for, and prescribed some Biaxin/Clarithromycin. Meanwhile, the harsh coughing continues at times. So what else is new?

The appointment itself was to go over my latest diabetes test results and a general health check-up, and we talked about various things. Contrary to what the endo had said, my PSA test results were higher than the previous one, not lower, and he's sending me for another PSA blood test in about a month. As for the diabetes, the doctor was content with where I am right now with it, but that I do need to get the a1C and my triglyceride levels down somewhat (okay, a lot with the latter!).

Went and picked up the antibiotic on the way home, after eating some lunch at Aamp;W. While the root beer (sugar-free!) is great, I'm not crazy about their food, though the sweet potato fries were nice (though not as good as the ones I've eaten in Kansas City). Got home, caught up on a bit of e-mail, and watched some curling action at the Scott Tournament of Hearts. Fell asleep (not surprising really, given the night that I'd had), and then did some reading of more Coriolis - The Third Horizon game stuff.

Just about time to make some supper, and then see where the evening leads me. More curling viewing, I suspect. :)
