Well, maybe the bullet wasn't speeding!
Well, maybe it wasn't a bullet!
Well, maybe I didn't dodge!
For a male, I'm fairly careful about watching my health. I'm very fortunate to have good health. But I do watch how I look after myself.
Two weeks ago I had my annual checkup. I have a very thorough family doc when it comes to check ups. After listening to an area on my chest, he told me that my aorta was not making the normal sound. He wasn't concerned but he wanted me to get an Ultra Sound of my aorta. Now I didn't realize that the aorta went down both sides of the abdomen. So when I was getting the ultrasound I wondered why they were working hard on my abdomen.
My Doc said he'd phone if there was a problem. Well the clinic phoned and asked me to come and see my doc in about 3 days. This was enough time to get me worrying as to what was wrong. The Micro Manager got very stressed by this situation so she didn't do anything to allay any worries I had..
Since they'd gone over my abdomen I wondered if they found something that looked like cancer. Did they find an aneurysm? So I had myself in overdrive with worry when I got to the doc's office.
Well he told me that what the ultrasound indicated was some stuff on the walls of my aorta. How much stuff I asked. They don't know was the reply. Keep on doing what you're doing.
Reality told me there shouldn't be a problem. My blood pressure was 121 /63 during my examination. But I still worried. You look up on the Internet about aneurysm surgery and it's serious stuff.
So I felt like I'd dodged a bullet when it was found to be nothing serious.
