RIP, George Carlin. It's definitely a little funnier in heaven today.

Now, get your shit away from my stuff.

Live Longer?

If this is true, I know some people who will live forever.

It just keeps getting better and better...

Well. Hello. Kinda took a little break there. *ahem* Much better now.

Yeah, except for a few things. You know...this getting older crap? Ain't for sissies.

I went to a cardiologist/lipidologist just to try to get a baseline on my heart health. I probably haven't mentioned that I am planning on living forever and wanted to make sure my plan was going forward as I had hoped. They did a blood test and an ultrasound on my check the blood flow in the arteries.

He said that it didn't look too bad...maybe the start of a little plaque buildup, but I am taking some meds that are good for protecting the heart (enalapril, toprol, lipitor) so that was good. He naturally said the horrible 'lose weight' phrase. (Why does everyone have to say that? Why can't I just once hear. you look great except you need to put on a few pounds. Here's a brownie.)

Then the good news: not diabetic.

Then the bad news: pre-pre-diabetic. How aggressive do you want to be?

Well I mentioned I have a 5-year old son that I was hoping to see get past kindergarten. Then there is also the 'living forever' plan.

So he switched the lipitor to crestor and added metformin. Great.

I also went to see an orthopedist to see why my hip hurts like hell. The verdict? Osteo-arthritis. Great. The treatment? Hip replacement. Wonderful. Surgery scheduled for August.

I just got all the great genes in my family, didn't I? Let's see...

fat genes...check...
high blood pressure...check...
Now I just need to wait for my prostate to go bad.
