I'm seeing my doctor in a couple of weeks, but he won't be doing blood work this time. Blood pressure check; and I can tell you mine is way down, no doubt on account of having lost a few pounds. Maybe even down enough that he has to adjust my medication.
He's going to be floored by that. He said to me last time, sighing sadly (don't you love when they pretend to care so very, very much?), "one of these days, you're going to come in here and you're going to have lost ten or twelve pounds."
And I said, "if so, it'll be because I was in a horrible accident and I lost a leg."
It's a good question, anyhow. I'll be interested to hear if someone has had blood work.
