So What’s the Delay?

leave a comment »

I’m within eyesight of the medical office building with about 15 minutes until today’s doc appointment. But what’s this red flag about, and is it going to make me late?

Except the real delay can be inferred from the direction I’m looking: north up Beamer, instead of south. That’s right: I’d thought my appointment was down at my doc’s Webster office. Got there to find an open but very empty office, where one of the only two staffers on hand pointed me back up to my own backyard, where I could have walked to my appointment in the time it took me to drive down to Webster and back. But at least I left myself that much time, so am not yet late here at this roadwork stop.

Which will turn out to hold me up for only a minute more. So that I will arrive at my doc’s local office about 5 minutes before they finish their lunch break. Whereupon they rush me through filling out a simple form on my current meds (info for which I need to touch base with Susan about – I suppose one of these days I ought to learn that for myself), then take my doc’s first afternoon time slot for a very brief spike follow-up consultation. Now there’s something unusual: taking longer to get to the doc’s office than I spend actually in the doc’s office!

As for the spike: everything basically fine, both sides. Leaving me good to go for at least a year, perhaps five. As long as I point myself the right way.

Newly Crowned

newly crowned

Best way to work on recuperating from a stomach virus? Stopping by my dentist to have a new crown before a 6-hour drive to New Orleans. Eh, but it didn’t go too badly, and now I’m just waiting for Susan to return from the ATM.

Nose Job

nose job
Getting myself a nose job.

The one I have had to poke around the past 50-some years hasn’t served me well enough, can’t sniff out where the best curry can be found.

Also, I’ve asked them to give me a nipple on the end of my new one. What good’s a nose without its own nipple?

Morbidental

leave a comment »

morbidentalOK, so maybe this explains why I’ve been so tired lately: I have some infection going on in the old chompers. And they thought at first that one of my remaining top front one teeth was loose, but an xray suggests instead that the crown might be broken. They tell me that might mean taking the whole thing out and redoing my partial to add another, which is coming close to an entire denture for the top. How about we just get th ß back to knock the rest out that she didn’t get the first time around? I’m rather tired of trying to hang onto what she left me.
coincidental
I text gVent to schedule my next dental cleaning appointment 3 months hence. Since my main dentist is not in the office this week, I’ll need to wait until next week to consult with her about this loose/broken tooth. It could be worse: I could be attempting to do this text-scheduling on the predictably unreliable AT&T Wireless network, where as one of their managers felt completely free and pleased to repeat for the record, “You don’t pay to get good service.” Yes, sir, some services are worse than going the dentist.

Which do you dread visiting more: doctor (1) or dentist (2) ?

Response: doctor – Because my dentist wouldn’t dare drill where my doc’s rubber-gloved finger goes probing.

And you can give me all the root canals you want as long as you let me suck on that gas. I already have more than enough gas at the end the doc wants to invade, thank you very much.

Short-Sighted on Harry’s Lock

leave a comment »

Took Harry along to today’s doc appointment (although as it turned out, I had no more than 2-3 minutes for getting any work done, since I was seen quickly)

Heading out th door, thought of bringing th computer lock along, decided against needing to, actually visualizing th doctor’s office situation and not seeing any circumstance that would require me to be away from th machine

Saw that far, forgetting that I had planned to do a little Christmas shopping after th doc appointment. Didn’t even look that far, or it would have been automatic.

I know, I could have shoved it under a seat and locked up the car, and who would ever know? But I’m not really supposed to. So I don’t.

I’ll just have to do my last bit of holiday shopping later this week.
