It’s been a few months since the last blog post. I am happy to report that 1. I am still alive and 2. I try to live my life the best as I possibly can within the tight confines of my situation. No I have not regressed on a downward spiral. Fact is at my last check-up on April 6, I did fairly good.
My vitals are ok.
- Weight 220 lbs. down from 231 in October.
- Blood Pressure 120/64 April 6
- Blood Pressure Today 114/70 (home test)
I am taking several regular medications but that has been reduced from the many I used to take shortly after I got out of surgery. It has been more than a year now since the heart surgery.
I am also eating healthier though I sometimes have to enjoy myself and indulge once in awhile. Mostly though it is fish or skinless boneless chicken, vegetables, lots of onions, no salt, drinking only water 99% of the time, eating some breads with spreads for breakfast. I also eat oatmeal fairly regularly with only water and cinnamon added in – no sugar. I should do a healthy food post.
Exercise – I try to walk 2 miles every day and for the most part I do. Best times for walking is early in the morning or early evening. Once in a while I walk right smack in the middle of the day. Been keeping track of most of my walk with pedometer software installed on 2 of the 3 smart-phones I own (only one of them is connected to an active service).
I’ll write more about walking, eating, health technology, and whatever else.
However I am writing to let you know that I am expanding the scope of the blog to include other stories in my life, such as job hunting, past accomplishments, photos essays and whatever. I do have separate blogs to cover many of those (look at the sidebar) but perhaps some of those types of topics may be cross-posted here.
Until the next post, aloha!

Remembering Mom on Mother’s Day
Today I remember my Mom, LaVerne Healani Kealoha Ah Ching • 1932 – 2015.
My sister wrote the prose above which describes our Mom as the special person she was.
To all of the Mom’s out there, hope your day is a happy and special one.
To all of you, spend time with your Mom and tell her how much you love and appreciate here. You can never tell, today she is here and tomorrow she may be gone. Moms are special.
