Medical Follies

I had an appointment with my general practitioner this Friday.

While on line today, two jobs opened up for later this week so I thought I should try to reschedule before I take the open jobs for Thursday and Friday.

During a phone call to the doctor’s office, I was informed that the only thing open was for 9am tomorrow. 

Uh, ok.

Any wagers that it’ll be my nurse practitioner? With all respect to my pal Kate, this is the nurse practitioner that if I listened to her back in the fall, I probably would have had to have an infected knee out due to her directions. ** shuddering at the thought**.

I’ll keep you posted.

Hack-hack….

I have started hacking away all of a sudden.

It starts as soon as I leave the house in the morning.

I saw what it was this morning…

RAG WEED.

Talk about your warm and fuzzy childhood moments.As soon as I realized what it was, I heard my Mom talking to me.

” Whenever it was time to go back to school, you always came down with a ” cold”. Finally I took you to the doctor who said to me you had hay fever.”

Jeez, Mom, that would explain the amount of handkerchiefs you sent me to school with, tucked away in my uniform blouse sleeve.Thanks, Mom. I always wondered about that.

I thought of something I recently saw posted on Facebook. It went something to the effect of your Mother never leaves you.

What a comforting thought.Miss you every day,Mom.

Rest

Despite prior years of dermatologist visits, I had no choice but to work on my tan. I, thanks to SEPTA, waited for a bus to go make a doctor’s appointment. While I waited a good 45 minutes, the sun was playing peek-a-boo and I felt that all was missing was baby oil!**joking**

Went to the doctor, and got some of my medicine adjusted. Jim and I go to the same physician, so part of the issue is how to get rid of our hacking that we are doing.

Rest is on the agenda. We are going to step away and relax and revel in the Undisclosed.

Sometimes, you just need it!
