Testing tests

I went to the dentist this morning. I was expecting the worst as I'm 33 and 3/4 and don't have any fillings. I figure it has to happen one day so with every passing year I expect more and more that I will have to get a filling. When I was pregnant with Moo I hardly brushed my teeth (due to gagging every time I even thought about a toothbrush or toothpaste) and after she was born I considered myself lucky to get out of my pajamas little own brush my teeth for more months than I care to admit..... So, it was with great trepidation that I finally made an appointment. Surprising we're all good! I do have a few deep 'fissures' that need filling to prevent decay but I don't have any actual decay. Who knows how I managed to be this blessed, but all I can say is 'Woo hoo~~'
After going to the dentist I stopped by the pathologist to get my blood test. Nothing wrong, just the usual cholesterol, fasting sugars, HIV, rubella etc tests that one gets before getting pregnant. (Which is a change from the unplannedness that was our little Moo). Now I'm scared. It's not that I'm worried that I have some horrible disease, it's that I really like bacon. And chocolate. And fatty roast pork with crackling. Please, please, please don't let my cholesterol be too high. I'll never be able to enjoy the naughty yuminess that is bacon (full cooked breakfast!) without feeling guilty again.........
(Apart from the obvious guilt of eating a poor little piggy - free range is my answer to this conundrum. But that is a completely different story.)
