Joe's check up

Yesterday was Joe's check up at the U of A Hospital with his nephrologist(kidney specialist).

About a week before these appointments, Joe needs a whole series of tests done. Well Joe had these done early July in preparation for his mid July, just before holidays, check-up. Phone call...the Dr is on vacation...re-schedule for just after we get home mid August.

Well didn't we forget that all the tests had to be redone! Joe got the call not 24 hours before his appointment, after thoroughly enjoying himself for 3 whole weeks....no chance to be a real good boy, eat well & moderately and no...er...libations!

So he did the tests, went for the appoinment and had the BEST check-up ever! The Dr had a smirk on his face, knowing full well that there had been zero chance to sway the results! Except for the holiday weight gain, Joe is in awesome shape. No need for another check-up until spring 07! Happy news for sure. In the meantime...we will keep exercising!

Great to hear that Joe is healthy and happy. I bet the St. Hubert chicken didn't hurt either.
