doctor's appointment, part 2

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2009 5:32 pm

We got up early and had breakfast, went over to let Oreo out and left here about quarter to nine. The fog let up by then but it drizzled rain on us all the way so had to use the intermittent wipers. We got there about ten and got right in to see the doctor. We had a good talk about things. He ask questions, I ask questions and now, I have a new glucose meter and a changed medication and a new set of instructions. I have to take and record my glucose every day. I haven't been doing that as regular as I should. I have to ride that exercise bike at least a mile a day five days a week. I did 2.25 miles today. I have to take and record my blood pressure Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have to "watch" my diet and "try" to lose some weight. I do not have to have my thyroid checked until sometime in July and I do not have to go back until then. So, for being "squeezed in" it was about better than a regular scheduled visit.
It took about half an hour total.
Then, we went to Home Depot to look for a lawn mower. Riding lawn mowers were the ones of choice, but not in our budget. They had some on sale with high wheels on the back. It's a gas push type. We bought one of those. Our yard surely needs the grass cut but now it's too wet. It says not to use it when the grass is wet. I know it clogs up under the deck and stops the blade from turning.
We stopped at Golden Corral and had lunch. I ate a lot of salad. I also found some sugar free chocolate pudding but ruined it by adding a little vanilla ice cream. I found a cookie, too.
We got back to go to the surgeon for the biopsy on my arm. That took all of two minutes. We got down the haul to the elevator and I had to go back for my hat. We went to WalMart and got all disgruntled and MAD. The girl told us it wasn't done and it would be about 45 minutes. The doctor sent them by computer at 10:15 and it was a about 2:30. I went down to the Pharmacist window and asked her about it. She went through a stack of papers and said, "Oh, you're the one. It came through by computer but it printed over top of each other so we couldn't read it so I'll have to call and see what it is supposed to be." Now, shouldn't she have already done that. Then, they were going to put it on the bottom of the stack. I told her I'd had a long day and had a long drive home and I wasn't going to wait another hour or two to get a prescription that should have been done and waiting for us when we got there. So, she filled it while we waited but then she gave it to the girl at the pickup window and there was a line about two isles long so it took another half hour to get through the line. I couldn't even holler at that girl because she was a trainee and was there by herself and looked scared enough as it was. I did remember to drive carefully coming home even though I got behind a couple of drivers out for a slow crawl home or where ever they were going. We stopped at the store and dr went in and bought some deli stuff for supper It's thundering and bad weather is coming. I'm out of here. dooley
