It’s been a tough few days for my poor old stomach.
I reckon it was a good 48 hours before I felt recovered from the avoid foods I ate whilst in Hobart. By Sunday lunchtime I was starting to come good again.
Tuesday I came down with what can only be described as an aggressive stomach virus. The details are far too unpleasant to discuss on a family site.
Copious amounts of water and nearly 3/4 of a kilo of natural yoghurt appear to have got on top of the little bug[ger]. I have always found natural yoghurt to be of great benefit whenever I have a stomach upset.
Tuesday afternoon I had my first visit to my Osteopath in nearly two years. This was just for a little preventative manipulation as I was feeling some back soreness. It used to be a regular visit as I have been plagued with a variety of back related injuries going back to my soccer playing career. I guess playing as a goal keeper and throwing myself around on the hard Australian grounds was bound to take its toll eventually.
Friday I go to the Doctor to arrange for a blood test. It’s time to have my annual check for my Thyroid status. I think whilst I’m at it I’ll get him to check my cholesterol level [ I haven’t checked that for years and have a follow up on my PSA level.
Message to all guys over 50. PSA is Prostate Specific Antigen. It can be checked by blood test and if the levels are within acceptable parameters there is no need for the other test. You know the one I mean.
I had a PSA test 12 months ago and all was well, so hopefully more of the same this time and I won’t need to tell the Doctor to ‘get his finger out’.
