I had bone density scans done today to check on the osteoporosis of my spine and hip. Here are the results:
The T-score for my spine is -2.6, and the t-score for my hip is -1.4. Both are well below what they should be for a 30-year-old male. Interestingly, my spine seems to be getting more denser over the past 3 years, but my hip has gone the opposite direction.
I’m taking calcium currently, but I definitely need to start taking something stronger.

Had I had my wits about me while in Vegas, I might’ve taken more pictures, but I only ended up with one. This picture was taken in the Las Vegas airport. They have cool elevators there.

I’ve been sick the past week. It all started with a tick in the back of my throat on Friday. That night, I felt fevers and chills, and during the weekend I got the normal cold-like syndromes. I also had pretty much no appetite and ate very little the entire weekend. This continued Monday and part of Tuesday. I never felt really all that bad, but the weird thing is the almost complete lack of appetite thing, which I’ve pretty much never experienced to this degree before. I have most of my appetite back now and have been eating lots of fruit today (ate 3 oranges earlier today). While sick, I ate a cup of chili and some ice cream from Saturday thru Monday, and that’s about it. So it was practically a fast.
So that’s about it. I still feel very weak from not having eaten much. But somehow I also feel very clear-headed. All-in-all, it’s been a very interesting sickness…
