Under the assumption that something, anything, some few scraps of information from yours truly are better than nothing, here we go Loop De Loop.
This upcoming THURSDAY THE 20TH of JULY .. I FLY FROM HONG KONG NORTH TO ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA.
What do I do all day?
This week seems to be dominated by two things.
- Monsoon rains that are grounding me, and the rest of the populace, here in Hong Kong.
- Doctor and Dentist appointments.
Rain and medical / dental stuff eat up one’s days.
Yesterday. Monday, I was off to see my Dentist and Doctor. Suddenly the rains began and I jumped on the next bus available. Bad decision because I then realized I was on the wrong bus. So I skipped my dentist (no big deal because all I had to do was to pick up two dental night guards) but had missed my route to St. Teresa’s Hospital.
Off the wrong bus I hopped. Purchased an umbrella. Got soaked to the skin. Backtracked and, miracle of miracles, got to St. Teresa’s Hospital with a few minutes to spare. LONG LINE to check in. A nurse came up to me at the end of the LONG LINE and I showed her my formal appointment papers.
She took me in-tow and in-processed me instantly. So I was on time for my 11:10AM appointment.
An extremely thorough bone density scan was performed on me to check my bone density. It far outreached the bone density scan that I had at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix last January.
I will find out tomorrow (Wednesday) what the results show. Do I indeed have male osteoporosis or don’t I? If yes, how bad is it and has my 5-months of taking 150mg of Risedronate Sodium once per month with daily Vitamin D, Magnesium and Calcium supplements per the Mayo Clinic assisted me.
Now I am in the getting-ready-to-fly process.
You tell me? Was this better-than-nothing?
At least you know I am still alive, basically vertical, and certainly functional.
Ready or not here we go Loop De Loop.
