I had a doctor appointment this morning.

Probably the only reason that I actually went is because trystel absolutely made me promise - she made me pinkie swear, OMG can you believe it!! - that I would make a doctor's appointment when I got back to Vancouver.

So I did.

Don't ever let it be said that I don't keep a pinkie swear promise. It's, like, bad karma or something.

My doc looked at me funny when I came in. I wondered if he would remember. Uhm. Yeah. First thing he says to me is, "So I don't see any results from blood work in here..."

Okay, so the blood work is two years overdue. I'm a procrastinator, I admit it.

All told, it wasn't too bad. My blood pressure is mostly okay 138/68 - a bit high, but he's mostly concerned about that because of the last tests for the creatinin levels were so high.

On my agenda - multi and various blood tests. And also, I am supposed to buy a blood pressure cuff to test at home. !!!! Okay, *NOW* I feel old. Yikes.

BUT! What really made my MORNING... can I just say that I must have an inner g33k sensor that makes me gravitate toward even geek professionals? I'm sitting there taking to the doc, and I mentioned to him how much I really got a kick out of the kidney doc I saw in the hospital 2 years ago. Doc says he thought that guy was kind of deadpan. I quip, "Yes! But it was perfect! He was the total straight man for my jokes! He even laughed when I made a crack about getting better through mitosis!"

My doc chuckles and then, somehow, I don't know exactly how really, we are talking about quadratic equations (cuz they are totally stuck in brain since I added the quadratic equation filk to the Conflikt songbook) and then he's laughing, and he shows me the prescription he was writing up for me... he started writing out a quadratic equation at the top of the prescription!

I <3<3<3 my doc. So much.

Good for her! Too many people in my life not taking care of their physical health. Extra kudos for going this week...

I'm still laughing about the quadratic equation song... I was trying to find my old math teacher's email so I could mail it to him...

huge hugs for being good and going to dr. I figure as long as my dr doesn't know how I'm doing, I'm doing well.. LOL

Looking forward to seeing you!

YAY!!! Thank you for going, and so soon, too! :-) We take our pinkie swears VERY serious in our house, and am tickled to see you do as well. Glad to hear all is going well. Did the doc say anything about your leg pain and how/if it can be alleviated?

I heard wonderful things about the con from some friend I saw at an SCA event on Sat. I *so* have to get the songbook, if possible. :}
