Back to the Doctor’s
My leg looks a bit better but feels a lot worse. The thought of toughing it through until my appointment at the end of the month was depressing. The constant pain is wearing on me. It didn’t make sense to wait until the end of the month to get treatment. However, it was recommended that I see the doctor that fixed me up a couple years ago if I had problems. He’s a busy guy and heavily booked.
I called up his office and talked to the appointment secretary. Turns out she was someone I went to high school with. After explaining my problem she was only able to schedule me a day earlier. What could I do? I took it. Soon after, however, she called me back. She was able to get me in this coming Thursday. She canceled her 93 year old mother’s appointment and gave it to me.
I thanked her for throwing her mother under the bus for me. She laughed and said, “Anything for a classmate.”
Actually, she had doubts about her mother going to the appointment in the first place. Sounds like it was just for a check up. My friend thought it might be better that her mother avoid being around sick people at her age.
Today it’s my lovely wife’s turn to see the doctor. We appear to be at that point in our lives when that’s just what we have to do. It sucks. We don’t mind getting older, but it we do mind feeling older.
Hopefully we can get our issues sorted out soon so we can go back to having adventures.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
