Monday morning. The day before I leave for GenCon Indy.

Must have slept on the bad shoulder last night, as I’m in pretty bad pain this morning. Need to take a couple of pills now, and hope they mute the pain somewhat.

Not going to be able to get much rest today, as I’ve got two doctor appointments today, and have to do a bit of shopping for some of my medication related stuff (noticeably the insulin and the needles) and a couple of other sundries. I’ve also got to finish the packing for GenCon 2017

So this promises to be a busy day once more. I would have liked to have taken it easy and rested up a bit today, but such is not to be the case.

Respiratory Tests July 7, 2017

Just got home from having the respiratory tests.

I got to the facility where the tests were scheduled, Bank Respiratory Services, around 1:00 pm, and didn’t have to wait all that long.

I don’t really know how to describe the tests themselves, other than to say that they involved a lot of heavy (*whoosh!*) breathing, controlled breathing, panting breaths, and some other stuff. I will say that I wish I had taken a photo of the room where I’d had the tests, ’cause there was some cool gadgets and gizmos in there. As a bit of a humourous side note, I will say that the nasal clip that is used to prevent you from nose breathing kept slipping off my nose! The tests took about 45 minutes to an hour, and left me feeling a bit dizzy and panting, but that was to be expected.

After spending a bit of time recovering in the waiting room, I headed over to my favourite Harvey’s restaurant and had an Angus burger, some onion rings, and a bottle of water. (While I love Harvey’s, I think I’m getting tired of their food fare. Need to find somewhere else to eat lunches on these days of doctor appointments.) From there, it was over to the pharmacy to pick up some insulin that I had ordered, and finally back to my house, where I took a 45-minute nap and then got down to stuff that I needed to do around the house.
