Yearly health check.

Haven't felt 100% these past few weeks.  I'm tired and, on some days, all I want to do is sleep.  I'm trying to hang on until my yearly physical which is next month.  Being a diabetic I need to keep my A1c within a certain range.  I've also lost weight and have a nagging cough that won't go away.  At first I thought it might be allergies since the pollen count has been pretty much off the charts this year.  And my nose has be quite the runner.  Yesterday I went to the drug store and bought an A1c kit and will test today.  It's usually done every three months but it's been 2 1/2 so it's close enough.  Guess the most troubling thing is the weight loss. By the way, A1c checks blood sugar levels over a 3 month period.  The good range is between 5-7.  If, when I test, the numbers are not good, I'll make an appointment to see the doc before my yearly check up.  Other than that things are good.  The garden has started producing.  Radishes, peas, Swiss chard have already yielded enough to harvest.  Everything else is growing well.  Hopefully this batch of squash will make it and I'm looking forward to the melons.
Y'all have a good day.
