prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

Vital Signs for August 2016.

Oh Boy! Lost eight pounds in August. Lost 14 in July. That is 22 pounds since I started dieting. Feel better, move better and my pants are looser.
My blood pressure has dropped. From around 135 to around 115. At a recent visit with Dr Carter, she thought that we could try cutting my blood pressure medicine in half. Can go back up if my blood pressure increases. Dr Carter said that my blood work indicates that I am one point from being diabetic. She is going to schedule a blood sample for three months from now to check again.

Incidentally I will be 92 in 321 days. I will be 95 in 1417 days. Sounds good.
