Well another day, I recieved the results of some tests from my doctor last afternoon. My A1c test came in at 6.1 so I have retreated from the diagnosis of being diabetic that I recieved 3 1/2 years ago. My overall cholesteral is 159 with my LDL being 92 and my HDL at 37 (not high as I would like)

I also had the doctor take xrays of my back because I was having a lot of pain. Well fairly depressing news, it seems that my problem is osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition that has no treatment other than managing the pain.

OK, I started this blog lets see how I can do.

fist one of the things that I don't want to do is really put down my innermost thoughts, because some of my thoughts really shouldn't shared.

Let's see .......... where to begin! I am a 67 year old man who has never kept a diary, so this is a new concept for me. I have 4 children all of whom I am very proud and all of whom i love dearly. I have 10 wonderful grandchildren, who are all dear to me. I am often feel that I am not as good a father and grandfather as I could be.

I am going to stop right now and try to get back to this later.
