Today I was heading off on a Road Trip down to Newmarket for my bi-annual allergy tests. Over 2 hours driving time.
I first swung around the other side of Owen Sound to pick up my friend, Toni with an "i", as she lived in Newmarket for years and was going to be my driver today. This I was happy about since I had no clue on how to get there myself.
The drive there went very quickly such talking consumed most of the trip making it pretty much "fly" by.
We met Toni's daughter, Nevada, for lunch at a strip mall not far from where she works. We had a fun lunch with of course, more talking and laughing.
My appointment at the Allergy Clinic was at 2:00 pm. I was very happy with Dr. Mann. What a very nice doctor.
Results of my allergy tests? The sheet was not full as it had been 2 years ago, with only Dust Mites and a bit of Mold standing out. On the other hand he is recommending I be referred to a Throat, Nose & Ear Specialist, as my nose canals are unusually very small. Dr. Mann is thinking some of my problems of breathing and sinus are stemming from my nose canals being as such.
The other issue I have apparently have is my Asthma. He has suggested I need to increase my lung capacity. How on Earth would I do this? well upper body exercises are going to have to be added to my weekly agenda. Dr. Mann said "ease into them" as I do not want to hurt myself by going "gun ho", but then again we all know we are to ease into any new exercise program, do we not?
Yes, I am suppose to carry on with using my Puffers and start using a saline solution to rinse my nose with at least 2 times a day. Oh my I hope I remember to do this !!!
On our trip back home, Toni and I had a couple of cool sightings ....
When I was driving on my way home through Wiarton I heard Bag Pipes. Upon further investigation I found the source.
I left Rob in charge at home today. Do you think he accomplished much other then ...
Can you imagine how tired I am? I finally made it back home at 6:30 pm. I think I will get all the Aussies and puppies looked after and very shortly call it a night, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
