My trip to the "vet"

I'm furry. So shouldn't I call my doctor my vet? *grin*

I finally got to see a doctor today after weeks of procrastinating and scheduling problems. He seems to be a really nice guy. We spent most of the appointment getting my medical and family history. Overall I seemed to be in o.k. shape, but my blood pressure was pretty high. That could explain some of my "jitteryness." I'll go have some lab work done soon. He was concerned that if I had chronic high blood pressure, there could have been heart damage. An EKG showed normal heart function *phew*. So let's hope the lab stuff will come up clean. Several posts back I mentioned the "D" word. I shouldn't have been so vague. I'm not worried about depression. I am worried about diabetes. My grandmother lost 2 legs to it. While I am 20-30 lbs overweight, I do exercise regularly. *shrugs* We shall see.
