Wednesday's Reflection

It's been a long year here at Dazd Central. Well, not quite a year but with my lack of writing I decided I should start early. That way if I forget or miss it, its already covered.

Long time readers and good friends will remember September 25th of last year. No its not a day that will live in infamy or be recorded in history books. Rather its a quiet day that quickly slipped from normalcy into oblivion. You can read about it starting here.

My life changed that fateful night. Many lives changed on 9/11 and so did mine. But this night changed immensely on how I relate to life and respect what life has to offer. Yes I coined the phrase "Reality sucks and life goes on..." many years ago. 1987 to be exact. At that moment nothing mattered more than living. Living to see my son grow into a man, living to see grandchildren someday, living to enjoy friends and most of all living to experience life in a whole new way. Things that changed that I'm regretting, amusement parks, good old fashioned food, and one regret I'll have for eternity. And who could forget the quiet friend who kept everyone updated, and actually became a blog son. Many thanks to DNR for keeping friends updated.

I also had support from online friends...many many friends. Too many to recall and I'd hate to forget anyone. You all have a place in my heart and always will.

Update from the doctors appointments I've had the last 2 weeks. Cholesterol is elevated again with the total of 204 with the HDL (good cholesterol) at 42. Triglycerides are elevated at 209 so my Crestor will be increased to 20 mg with a follow-up test 6 weeks away. Heart doctor said its still ticking and sounds great. however, my BP is averaging a little high at 130/85. Yea not too high but he's worried given everything thats happened. So my BP med dosage has been increased. I've also gained ummm some poundage and need to shed that back off. Yes I'm a slacker when it coes to that part but I still eat healthy just need to watch my consumption. Oh and I need to exercise too...errrr...more.

I also want to thank each and everyone of you who stood by me during my heart attack. Amazingly enough it helped immensely providing my comfort and proving once again online friendships can make a difference. I also want to thank each and everyone of you who read my ramblings and have patiently waited for me to "write" again. Yes I realize this blog provides comical releif but lately its lacking both ingredients to which I started this blog. 1. To write 2. To provide laughter and reflection.

So now you have the reflection and Monday had the laughter. My job for the week in complete.

BP problems suck eggs! Your numbers are around mine--and, yes, I have to continue my meds, too. (Although, my blood pressure problem is anxiety, pure and simple.) Take care so that we can read you for many years to come!

Elevated levels? Slightly high blood pressure?? Blame it on Goldbloom for not providing the comic relief! lol

Seriously, take care of yourself. You can't be replaced.

Well, so much for a blog-iversary post to co-inside with your ‘anniversary’ post...

I have met many new, wonderful, exciting, great people here. BUT, I would gladly trade all of them for you to not have this anniversary.

My life this last year would have been much less bright, a lot less laughter without you in it. Please take care of yourself!

Thank you for all the smiles and laughter you have brought into my life. Reality does suck, but life goes on. So you must make it have meaning, as you have obviously done.

May God's blessings continue to be upon you.

I love reading your blog; even though you may think you're not "writing", it always makes me laugh or maybe just say, "huh. I didn't know that"....

Keep taking care of yourself, and keep on blogging!

I for one am SO GLAD that you survived all of that, as you have been such a wonderful asset in my life, and I am selfish like that. So I am happy you are still here, because you make my life a little bit more enjoyable.

I am glad you are still here as well - "every day above ground is good." Take care of yourself - because so few people in this world make me laugh so I want you around awhile...
