Good morning - I know it's been a while!
Last Thursday, I drove to the big city 3 hours south of Swamp River Ridge for my annual physical with a brand new doctor. My WONDERFUL doctor took an early (super early as he's about my age if not a little younger) retirement to follow his wife (physically) for her job . . . after she'd spent all the years up until now following him. Damn him! (And we can't even talk smack about 'im since he left for such a noble reason!) I never ran into a single soul who thought Dr. Bob wasn't entirely amazing.
So, I started with a new doctor from the same group . . . and I love her!!!! (I've got to say, beginning with all the infertility problems, I've always had terrific luck with finding incredible doctors (knock on wood), even if it took a couple of tries to find the right one.) I am tickled pink with New Doctor and very impressed with the state Dr. Bob left my file in . . . and that New Doctor had taken the time to review it before meeting me for the first time. As I updated her on my "personal woes", the persona of doctor seemed to melt away from her, and she sat listening with rapt attention. When I was finished, she kind of shook herself and said something to the effect of, "I think it was kismet that we met! You have NO idea how I can relate to every single thing you're going through." So, I am so, so happy with the new medical resource / consultant that I've found in her.
And, I seem to be in good shape, physically (and mentally - insert hysterical laughter!). So, I'm ready to go another year. :) Kind of like the annual tune-up for a car, eh?
On Sunday, I had every intention of blogging, but I started in on the day's stuff . . . and ZOOM! went the rest of it!
|I did get the front walks (but not much more) mowed before a big, late afternoon storm rolled in.|
|Cool thunderclouds, eh?|
|Dirty feet, as the rain starts to splatter the deck, are a sign of work well done. :)|
|And, it's a cat's life (this is Dosie, the Dead Cat): snuggled up on the couch in the sunroom when the rain starts to fall.|
