Health check up tomorrow

I have to go to my GP tomorrow for a checkup.

I’m having my blood glucose levels tested.

I’m also getting an EKG.

I have to fast from midnight tonight. I can drink small amounts of water, but only a small amount.

Apparently when I got my blood tested 2 weeks ago, I screwed up the test somehow.

I won’t make that mistake again. This time, I’m going to be extra careful.

Frances is going to the appointment with me. I was given two separate appointment times, one for my blood test, and one for my EKG.

However, I’m going to ask the nurse if she can do both at the same time.

Frances only works with me from 9 until 11:30. I want to have them done at the first appointment, which is at 9:30.

So we’ll see. Don’t know what I’ll do if she can’t accommodate me.

Anyway. I’m sure it will all work out somehow.

  1. It sounds like you’re taking your health seriously, which is great! Going to the doctor for check-ups and tests can be nerve-wracking, but it’s important to know how your body is doing and to catch any potential issues early on.

    Fasting can be difficult, especially when it’s for medical reasons. Just remember to stay hydrated with small amounts of water and try to distract yourself from hunger if you can. It’s good that you’re being extra careful this time around to ensure accurate test results.

    It’s wonderful that Frances is going with you for support. Having someone there to hold your hand or offer a listening ear can make a big difference during these appointments. Hopefully, the nurse will be able to accommodate your request to do both tests at the same time. If not, try not to worry too much. You can always schedule another appointment for the second test.

    Overall, it sounds like you have a positive attitude toward this check-up, and I’m sure everything will work out just fine. Best of luck to you! 👍👏👌😊


    1. Thanks so much for stopping by. I really appreciate your kind comment. I don’t think I’ll have much trouble with fasting. I’m glad I can drink a little bit of water. And I am also glad Frances will be with me 😀 xoxo
