Happy New Year

Yesterday I say my cardiologist and Ron saw our PCP (primary care physician). My cardiologist was literally crushed to learn that I had gained 24 pounds after having lost 48. He took it very personally and I thought his disappointment was going to make him cry.

Ron’s doctor appointment went a little better but the PCP still focused on weight and urged him to exercise and eat healthy.

This was the first time I realized our medical victories are claimed by the doctors. If we succeed through hard work and following instructions, the doctor gets to claim the prize.

With my competitive nature, I have found a way to win this round. I guess you could say that I was the winner yesterday……………. for most weight gained. WhooHoo! :-)

  1. That's pretty funny. You do the sweat, he gets bragging rights. Gotta love that. Kind of like a certain CEO at a certain company I worked for long ago who ran the company into the ground and took out all the money without doing anything productive. Well, not that bad, but that's almost as silly.
