Men's Health Week

Monday, June 22, 2015

I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating all the dads! While we still have dads on the brain I wanted to remind everyone that this week is Men's Health Week. Keeping our men healthy is so important, and not always very easy.
Take my dad for instance, he hates going to the doctor. He is a diabetic and stays fairly healthy but he's still hates going to the doctor. My step-mom, Gramma, and myself are always nagging  him about his health but it's only because we love him and care. He feels the same way about going to the dentist and his dentist is my aunt, his own sister. Thankfully he is in good health but that's not always the case for everyone. Plus as he's getting older it's so important that he continues to have those routine checkups.
Thankfully Sean isn't as hard to keep healthy. He has required doctors visits through work, as well as routine physicals. But we are also proactive about other check-ups. Sean's dad passed away in 2012 due to prostate cancer so it's very important to us that Sean continue to receive routine checkups, even if it's not the recommended year.
I received this infographic from the health insurance company called Oscar and wanted to share it with all of you. It's an outline of checkups that men should receive throughout their lifetime. If you're having a hard time getting the men in your life to the doctor maybe this will help.

 Let's help keep the men in our lives healthy so they'll be around to watch their children, grandchildren, and possibly even great-grandchildren grow up!
