Today's Fun - A Life Line Screening

I know I have been kind of AWOL from my blog lately. I just haven't had any good ideas for blog posts, so I may skip a day now and then.

I hadn't had a Life Line Screening before, but we got a mailing that they were offering it at a church just down the street, so Bill and I both made an appointment. Today was our day.

We signed up for the five test package for $149.

1. Stroke - Cartoid Artery Disease

2. Stroke - Atrial Fibrillation

3. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

4. Peripheral Arterial Disease

5. Osteoperosis

They had about 10 technicians calling people in for the different tests. Very organized. It took about an hour for all the tests, with a little waiting between each. Quick and painless. I like those kinds of tests!

Obviously, these tests are not a substitute for regular annual checkups, but they can alert you to a problem you didn't even know you had so you can follow up with your own physician.

We will get a written report in about three weeks. I thought it was well worth the price, and I would do it again!

Very interesting. I've seen ads for things like this but didn't know exactly how they worked. And "quick and painless" is a good thing!
