Dale, the math, best I can tell, is that you're .02 from being .09. I can't think .02 among friends will alter your presidency. Matter of fact, I'd still vote for you if it was 2.2. Or 22.2 for that matter. Given that, as president, you'll be hosting the annual President's Reception at Ruth Chris' Steak House (I'm a firm believer that lots of red meat and avoiding fruits and veggies while loading up on sugar is GFMPH ) and, I assume, picking up the tab, this really is a never ending job you've created.
Now, onto the minor PSA matter. And it does seem minorish. I can see why your doctor is saying this may, or may not, be anything and it key number will be a comparison to this in three months. But, it's gotta be a concern for you. I was at .02 on my first three month test and I'm already sweating bullets about
December --- I know you'll be feeling the same about
January. I've got you on my prayer list Dale.
