Hop Clover

Mine was the doc's first appointment for the day.  My blood pressure and temp were both back to normal and in fact all of my blood workup and the checkup she gave me was within norms.  "Could be you just picked up a virus and it's run it's course." she said.  My urinalysis did show signs that I might have an infection so she ordered a course of antibiotics just in case.  (Good idea.  Even placebo's will make a person feel better.)  She didn't think I had Lyme's.  Since I do get a number of tick bites though she ordered a culture made from my blood to check for Lyme's and other tick borne diseases just to be on the safe side.  I knew that the Lyme's test is notorious for giving both false positives and false negatives.  The results from that wouldn't be back until Friday so she suggested we see what it finds and how I'm feeling by then before we take any other action. I picked up the medication and the pharmacist emphasized that it needed to be taken w/ food.  Great.  I was feeling better but I still have no appetite.  I picked up a sandwich on the way home and sat out on the deck.  Took a couple bites of sandwich, the pill, a couple more bites and gave the rest to Indy.  Not  feeling 100% yet but Indy is prepared to do garbage service whenever called upon.
