Personal Stuff

Saw hematologist Dr. Z yesterday,  He seems mildly worried (but that's about as worried as a Taoist gets) about my anemia.  I have been taking my iron supplement at the wrong time of day and in a wrong relationship to my other activities.  I should be taking it just before bed, on an empty stomach, and with calcium.  I'm to see him again in three months.  It will be a pleasure.  He asked me to log my nosebleeds, which i had already decided to do.

Nosebleed log: Nosebleed at 11:45 p,m. October 5th, fifty hours after the previous one.  Very mild, maybe twenty drops, stopped in less than fifteen minutes.  Spontaneous,  Could be warfarin related, i had stopped it just one week earlier.  Not using CPAP for the past month, and i have humidifier going in the bedroom all night,

I am feeling so good right now with my hips working like they should, that i feel medical appointments are a waste of my time and effort.  "What am i doing here, anyway" i ask myself at each appointment.  No more medical appointments in October!
