Doctor's Visit

Today I made an appointment for my hubby to have a physical. He is one of those guys who never goes to the doctor. I finally asked him a couple of weeks ago if he would go if I made the appointment. He agreed so today is the day. He hasn't had a physical in over 5 years and that was only because he was very ill with blood clots in both lungs. He hasn't felt well for some time and I suspect he may have diabetes since he is tired all the time. I am very worried so I hope the doctor can stress that he needs to take better care of himself. I pray it isn't anything major and if it is diabetes it is treatable with diet and exercise. We shall see.

I know what you mean about getting hubby to see a doctor. My husband just turned 50 and I want him to go get all the tests that he is suppose to. I guess I just need to make the appointment and tell him to show up. I hope your husband feels better soon. Have a wonderful evening.

OH Kathy!
I sure hope all went well today. You're right...if it's diabetes...you can work on that. These husbands! Thank God yours has a good woman to force him to take care of himself. Husbands are full time jobs!! LOL!
My hubby is awful at taking care of anything...except for his job! He travels so much and works so much that he doesn't have much time for anything else. I never know if he's a workaholic or if his job is THAT demanding! I'm begging him to take a few days off at Thanksgiving to relax and enjoy some time with his family. Our son will be home and we have guests coming. So, we'll see....
Keep us posted on your hubby!

Hopefully your husband has a good physical! Men can be so stubborn. He's lucky to have you looking after him.
