Nephrologist

I really hurt today and had a lot of trouble walking. I got the trash and recycling out and had to rest a bit before I got back in the driver's seat and headed out. I've lost 18 pounds since the beginning of the year and nine in the last six weeks. I told her I was having trouble eating -- most days getting closer to 500 calories a day instead of the required 1000 calories minimum -- and she said I didn't look perky. She pushed rather strongly for me to admit that I'm more depressed again and she's right. When I got home, I left a message for my psych.

I asked if I could stop the generic Fosamax because I have a lot of trouble remembering the morning routine it requires before I've already ruined it. She said I should set up a bone scan and we'll see, so I'll call for that appointment tomorrow.

She also told me that the rheumatologist is leaving Kaiser! And I didn't know it, but I have the last appointment on June 30th. I like the rheumatologist best and I'll miss her. I'll have to have her recommend someone else to see.

I stopped at Outback on the way home because they have a side salad I like -- mixed greens with bleu cheese and pecans and a balsamic dressing -- and they also had a new appetizer: six jumbo shrimp. That was a very nice meal and I ate all of it.

A fascinating article on when origami meets rocket science plus a gorgeous gallery of photos (and an annoying 11-second Amway advertisement).
