I have a flock of zebras. They don't play nicely with others and the horses often kick them.

I'm at Dr. K's office and so far everything looks good. The nurse had a difficult time getting an ecg reading which had me a little worried that something wasn't quite right. But after glancing at the reading, I didn't see anything that appeared out of the ordinary other than I didn't see any inverted T waves. L, the NP came in and said that the reading looked good to her, so now I'm waiting for the QT interval to be corrected using the Bazette equation, and then talk with Dr. K Then hopefully I'm out of here for at least 6 months, if not a year. It's not really that I mind coming here. I just hate that I have so many appointments that I go to. So I'm crossing my fingers that everything is fine and that I can cross this appointment off the list.
So Dr. K did come in and remarked that I had no inverted T waves today, but added that they would return at another time. He said that everything is fine but still wants to see me in 6 months. Oh well, I really would like a year, but I guess my heart is just to finicky for that. At least there wasn't anything new today.
He also asked me again if I would go to Weight Watchers, and I replied no, but I am seeing an obesity specialist. I explained that almost everyone who loses weight with Weight Watchers gains it back in between sessions. That's really not where I want to go. He was happy that I am seeing Dr. B. It kind of upset me a little that 48 pounds in less than a year isn't good enough, but I do have almost 30 more to go. I just think losing it slowly is better than fad dieting it away and putting it right back on. However, I do wish that eating healthy was easier. I am trying to force myself to eat lunch and they only had a couple of things today that were carbless. This tastes as bad as it looks. I need to start bringing my lunch again.
