Last Friday, I had an ominous message on my machine at home: "This is the doctor's office, please call as soon as possible." Well, since I WORK during the day I didn't pick up the message until after they were closed on Friday evening. Of course, I then spent all weekend with that message niggling (yes, that's a word) around in my brain.
Now, my doctor, has been harping to Bill about Vitamin D for quite some time. And Bill thinks that Tom (our doctor) is really clever and relies on his expertise. Bill has been taking 2000 IUs of Vitamin D3 supplements for quite a while. And now, I, too must start the regimen. I've been taking haphazardly, i.e. whenever Bill reminds me that it's probably a good idea. But, until I heard it directly from Tom, I wasn't going to make it part of my routine. Tom is the doctor, Bill is not.
Part of the Vitamin D problem, and I hesitate to say 'problem' because you know how much I love Buffalo, but, part of the problem is that we live in Buffalo. I don't even want to look up the percentages, but we spend a lot of days with cloud cover. Today, we saw some blue sky but, as I mentioned above, I WORK during the day, so I couldn't take advantage of it and get that jolt of Vitamin D.
So Bill and I will be warding off cancer and heart disease and weight gain together by popping mega doses of Vitamin D. And, I'll try to figure out how to spend more time in the sun.
