All Good News

I was able to get an appointment with the doctor today. My regular doctor wasn't available, but someone else in the practice was.

It looks like I was bruised internally on my left side. My arm and shoulder are sore, some cuts, which are already healing, on my elbow, hand and knee, but it's all minor, as I figured.

I was glad I went. I wanted to have a paper trail for other guy's insurance company-- that I was injured enough to see the doctor. There was a bonus. When the nurse took my blood pressure, which is routine, it turned out that it was normal-- 118/78. This is great. It's been high for a few years, but during the visits about my asthma, my new doctor got on me about it, telling me she was going to turn to medication if I didn't get it under control. I started taking it seriously, cutting the ridiculous amount of salt I had in my diet out. Obviously it worked.

Plus, when I asked my substitute doctor if I could play the violin when I was healed, he told me I could. I told him that I was really happy about that, because I couldn't play the violin before...

No, just kidding. That joke's too old for even me to tell. Well, not for a few years at least...

Glad to hear that. What was the deal with the other driver? Distracted? Idiotic? Unlicensed?

Nope, just a yuppie.

Glad to hear this update. Good news about the BP!

I got hit last week due to someone else's stop-sign challenges, but they had the good grace to hit me on the passenger side and with much less damage... to me or the car!

I'm glad your blood pressure was so low. You'd think it would be higher with all that stress.
