I went to the doctor again this morning, and the bottom line is (he said), “Whatever you’re doing is working, so keep doing it.”
I have lost nine pounds in three months, my kidneys aren’t problematic anymore, my blood pressure is mostly under control, except for when I have to write about anyone named “Clinton,” and I’m taking antibiotics for some sort of infection in my innards. I ride my bike most days, and try very hard to relax, totally, at night. I also post a lot of cat videos: what can it hurt?
Of course, I could adopt a much more spartan way of life and eat nothing but strictly healthy foods. That would certainly make it seem like I was living longer! But I say enough is enough–and anyway, let’s get these other issues squared away first, all right?
I do have a doctor who cites prayer as a real aid to life and health. I like that.
