The Devil Is In The Details or Welcome To Our New Blog!
Lots to accomplish in this blog post and I want to keep it as short as possible so away we go...
This is our new blog, Laughing at Life as you can tell. We will be cross posting our blog posts between the Dr.s blog right here and also Laughing at Life. It's all a lighter look on life and all it offers us. It will be a look at the past, present and the future of what life has to offer and has offered in the past. Of course as you can figure from this statement it will mostly about my success and failures in getting to where I am at now and where I want to be in the future with Patti, my wife, the kids and Dr. Calder. The attempt is to not give you the hows of life, but the who, what, when, where and why of life and living healthy.
I couldn't do this without Dr. David Calder who I met through the internet and from that have grown a great friendship over the past year. Not only is he a friend but now a partner in changing my life for the better and hopefully helping you change yours. Throughout the next few months you will be included and invited, if you want to join us on this quest to get healthier and live a great life and totally laugh at life!. That's my goal. I did it in the past and now I want to do it again for the future.
Now along with myself writing and the Doc, Patti my wife, caregiver, best friend and partner will be giving you her take on moi. This should help you to laugh at life a great deal.
As for the title of this post, "The Devil Is In The Details" it is based on Dr. Calder's book The Diabetes Office Visits first chapter. He talks about the Two Devils- The Lows and the Highs. You bet the devil can really get into technical details when as a diabetic we deal with the highs and the lows. Now if you throw in heart disease and the fact that I am slightly hampered by polio from my youth, that takes the details to a higher ground. Makes for some laughable times, not really.
I suggest you all read this chapter. If you do not have the book you can purchase it through the Doc's web site at The Diabetes Office Visit or on our main site 1 Disease World Voice. You can do and while you are at it purchase the iPhone app if you have an iPhone. If not no worries we can help you work around that as we go along. I promise we are not going to spend a great deal of time selling you stuff. We don't really have too. Are posts, our lives, our success and failures all relate to what I have learned from Dr. Calder in the past few months and what I will learn in the future months as I progress. The best part is you are welcome to join us and get the advantages of watching me succeed or fail so you can succeed where I fail.
Okay getting a little long here on this supposed short post but heck that's what Laughing at Life is going to be about.
Get ready for a roller coaster ride that you will never forget. Not only of what we have planned now for the future but what has happened in the past to get me to where I am at today, Laughing at Life endlessly.
I am happy and proud to say that I could not have picked a better mentor than Dr. Calder who I know you will find to be a mentor to you all.
Be Well and
Laugh at Life!
