Walked the pooches this AM at Childrens Discovery Park near Lone Mountain. Afterwards, took a short drive around Lone Mountain to find the trailhead. Turns out it was on the west side of the mountain.
Drove over to Majestic Park on the way home. Decided to try the 107 steps as a challenge. Took me several stops and starts, but manaaged to huff and puff my way to the top. Didn't set any land speed records, but I made it to the top with Sassy my trusty sled dog pulling me up the steps all the way.

Had an appointment with Dr. Portz today at 2:30pm.
An EKG was performed. The test results looked good according to Portz.
We discussed my general health. I told him that my recent blood tests came in with good news. All my vital measurements, Cholesterol,Testosterone, PSA, etc were within the appropriate ranges.
Showed Portz my BP and Heart Tracker charts. He said they both looked ok. I mentioned that I've had two "Episodes" since my last visit. One occurred on Feb 21st, the next Mar 3rd. Portz seemed to think that these were/are being exacerbated by my COPD reaction to tree pollen that is causing my shortness of breath. Not to worry, it will disappear soon.

Wants to see me back in 6 months. Sept 2014.

irregular



Experiencing irregular heartbeat according to our home BP monitor system. Happened on both Jan 23 and 24th.
Think its because of the meds I'm taking for bronchitis. Can't tell if its skipping beats or just irregular. So just noting the unusual occurrences. Obviously, my heart rate is out of normal range, meds probably causing that too..

New meds are Methylprednisolone and Amoxicillin+Clavulanate. possible side affects of the Methylprednisolone includes dizziness which I am experiencing slightly. I called it lightheaded on my chart. I am feeling better, but weak as hell.
