I would be against abortion, too, if I witnessed a late term abortion. Gross!

Congrats on lowering your T-scores, Hattie. My internist told me that total cholesterol is not as important as the score for LDL (bad cholesterol).

Gigi: It wouldn't change my mind, but I think it would take a pretty strong set of convictions about a woman's right to control her body, and her precedence over a fetus. Which I have, actually. Women are the ones who bear the babies and have to bring them up. I would probably stop short of authorizing infanticide, although plenty of that does go on, even today.

Good for you in getting your blood pressure and cholesterol into a healthy range. I recently joined Weight Watchers, not because I particularly wanted to fit into skinny jeans again (LOL) but to try to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Congrats on the good bloodwork reports Hattie...every little bit counts. I've learned to appreciate these little baby steps...

I have to get my blood tested tomorrow too and I AM NOT looking forward to it. I don't think it's going to be good. You got 170? Wow!!!! What I would give to get that. Salt? Salt affected your cholesterol. OK... I'll try it.

Kay: I've never had cholesterol problems. That's probably hereditary, becuase I eat meat, butter, and so on without having it affect my cholesterol. My problems are with pre-diabetes and blood pressure elevation, which I seem for the time being to be able to control by watching my diet.

I take cholesterol meds -- partially because of being a stroke survivor and partially because of my lousy diet. The funny part is I have always (except at the time of the stroke) had excellent blood pressure. My doctor bugs me anyway.

Hattie

Kay: Hmm. Our visitor takes the meds too, plus he is very careful about his diet. But he does have a history of stroke in his family.

No, women you describe will not listen to feminists. Sometimes they hear something in the ether that leads them away from their "closed communities," many of which appear more open than the one you describe.
