Latest bloodwork is back for the husband. His cardiac coach (yes, there really is such a position) called up to say everything is looking great. They wanted his cholestrol lower because of the stents inserted; not because it was particularly high in the first place. Well, it is lower. Apparently it is not possible to get a lower reading.
I am so happy that the diet I’ve put him on has worked. Of course, he is cholestrol lowering medication as well but I am hopeful that maybe long term we can control it by diet alone. I’ve worked very hard with what I’ve been feeding him and it has been very time consuming so I am glad it has paid off.
Added bonus, because I eat it too, I guess my cholestrol is lower too. And now the occasional cheat, like on his birthday next week, will be totally justified. But, as he put it, ‘if I cheat, it has to be worth it – prawns over MacDonalds’.
Couldn’t agree more, my dear.
