What with the thunder banging and booming and windows rattling and the lightning that's bright enough to make it day, I will be turning off the computer.
Sorry excuse for a blog post I know, but take heart, my Doctors Appointment is for three PM. I will update this post tomorrow with what's what. And I guess that will have to do considering the power is flickering.
Lets hope its on long enough for me to hit "publish".
Dude. Uhm Woah.
Lotta pretty comments waiting for my return.
I AM OK - here is how it went:
The lady nurse put me in a room and said what's the problem today. I told her about the dizziness the hunger the dizziness and the tiredness and the dizziness. She waited till the moment my ass hit the chair and said oh! we better go prick your finger then.
Diabetes test. I scored a five point nine. I'm not sure what the top score I was going for, but the nurse lady said I did good. I did not get a sucker.
I had a nap while I waited for the Doctor to come in.
He listened to my neck arteries - which is not something I knew could be done. Did you know they have digital stethoscopes now? Cus he had one. He listened to my heart in the back and in the front, on top of my boobie and under it.
I had sweaty boob syndrome. Sorry Doc! You should have warned me I would have asked for a wet wipe!
He listened to my lungs and anything else you can think of. When he tried to check my ear I felt strangely compelled to apologise for the fact his left nut was being squished on my knee.
He checked my ..uhm.. something in my neck, and pushed all over my tummy.
He made me stand with my arms out and close my eyes, but he caught me when that made me tip over.
Then he made me lay down on the bed, put his hand under my back and made me sit up really fast and stared at my eyes.
apparently they did something wonky because it told him that I have an inner ear imbalance..something about my eyes being connected to my brain (headaches) and my ears (dizziness) and that I could have Valium if I want.
I said no. The whole i don;t like drugs thing, you understand..
He gave me samples of an antihistamine to see if it would help with the dizziness and told me that in 12 days when the samples are gone, if the dizziness has not gotten better, I am to call and he will phone in for an appointment with an ear nose throat dude.
I did not get a sucker. Or a sticker.
But. I'm OK. No diabetes, although he told me that he is going to ask Dr.P to run a complete blood work up and make me take that awful awful glucose test. I hate that fucking test.
I'm gonna have to study for it again.
In other news. Why didn't I update right away? Besides being an insensitive moron? The Husband took me out for dinner and a movie (Hot*Fuzz) to celebrate that I am not ill with something really really bad.
And to whet your appetite for tomorrow's post, It will be titled Dear Spider-man; Spandex is a privilege, not a right.
hugs kisses and ass gropes to you ALL!
