Let's Dance

With all the doctors' appointments on the horizon my dance card's getting pretty full. Saw Dr. Boisvert, my kidney specialist, yesterday. He's quite happy overall with my recent test results, save my cholesterol (around 5) and my high blood pressure.

He's upped the dosage of my blood pressure medication and prescribed Crestor for the cholesterol. In mid-April he's going to have me do a 24 hour blood pressure monitoring session.

Meanwhile, I'm back to see Dr Granger, my GP next Tuesday, and the following day I have an appointment with endocronoligist Dr Lochman at the Riverside Hospital.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
