It’s hard to come up with a title when all you’ve done is go to doctor’s offices.
We had the dermatologist on Monday. Wednesday we had to be in Phoenix at 7:45 a.m. (think rush hour traffic) which meant we were up at 5:30. Boy was that hard to do. Jim had an Echocardiogram. His heart doctor called today to tell him that his heart looks pretty good considering two by-pass surgeries and a heart attack. In fact his numbers (whatever those are) were better than last year and that is a good thing.
Thursday we saw his internist. He has had a pain in his back on the left scapula and down his arm for about three weeks. Decided enough was enough. Got some pain meds for him. Now he has a bone scan scheduled for next week and he also needs to get a stress test scheduled.
Then, to top it off, we had to take Scooter to the Vet Thursday afternoon. She must have twisted wrong and she is in a great deal of pain. Dachshunds have a lot of problems with their backs and necks because of their long spinal column. So now she’s all doped up on exactly the same pain medication that the doctor gave Jim today. But since we have insurance for Jim, his pills were a whole lot cheaper.
I’m just so grateful that I’m healthy.
