Speaking of exercise, I got a chance to do some light speed walking with Mary in the countryside around the school- very pleasant and soothing. Still taking the drugs, and plan to set up another appointment soon for a check up. Turns out my LDL (bad cholesterol) appears to be just fine. My HDL (good cholesterol) is a little higher than it should be. Seems the blockage in my carotid is a bit of a fluke. Though I am continuing with the drugs, and avoiding fries, mayyonaise, fat, and everything else that tastes good. Except sugar, of course. Since that doesn't have an effect on cholesterol. Praise God.
