I had one helluva a day. Some gratifying things, some pain-in-the-asker things and a bit of worry.
I went back to work today. I had yesterday off because I worked on Saturday. My boss and I talked about the thing we had for our clients with the Mexican consul. He agreed that it went very well and said that the Consul said we ran the most organized and professional "matricula" they'd seen. He also thanked me for my contribution and complimented me on how far I've come and says I've been doing a great job. Good stuff! All the intense preparation we've done for the last six weeks paid off big time! It was a winning situation for everyone. Ain't it grand when a plan comes together?
I had a doctor's appointment today. What was supposed to be a routine follow-up visit turned out to be a two hour visit with my new doctor. I go to the Internal Medicine clinic at a local teaching hospital because I haven't real insurance. I have only very basic care provided by the state of Ohio. I like my new doctor -- she was very young, thorough and nice. She is from India. Are there any doctors who were born in the U.S. anymore? I have a problem with doctors. I have residual effects from a medical problem I had a couple decades ago and everyone gets all hung up about it but me. I look at it as an isolated incident at this point and while I note it and live with it every day, I don't worry about it happening again but the damn doctors do. (I will talk about it here some day when I'm ready.)
Sheesh! She wants me to take some more medication that I don't need or want and certainly can't afford. I guess I shouldn't have told her I had stopped taking it over a year ago but didn't anyone notice that I hadn't asked for a refill on my scrip? Guess not.
Next month I see the endocrinologist to see how my thyroid stuff is. I'm still tiring easily a lot so I might need my meds changed. I might need surgery cause nodules don't go away by themselves. Sigh. I guess I need another specialist, too and they're trying to get me in a program it cause the state of Ohio isn't into women's health issues which I figured out a while back. To be fair, they probably aren't into men's health issues either. Obviously, I wouldn't know that.
I really enjoyed all the nice responses to my groaner, mystery and weird words posts. I laughed a lot and got a line on some new authors to try. Thanks to all of you! I didn't get around to visit much today and I apologize. I collapsed when I got home from the doc and slept instead of doing my rounds of the Blogosphere. I'll be around tomorrow though -- I promise.
I gotta go hit the sack! I have a new project tomorrow at work that I'm working on and I want to get it right.
