Oh To Be A Woman!

Today was a first in line of many doctor visits for me. It was my beloved yearly today. I think I sweat more for the scales then the spectulem! I had my blood pressure taken, then weighed under much stress! Low and behold the nurse told me I had lost 8 lbs since my last visit, and it was totally painless! I don't know how I did it! Went into the office. Took off all my clothes, (and did a happy dance-NOT!) folded them nicely and placed them ever so gently in the chair. Wrapped that lovely gown on and tied it in front. Un-folded that big napkin thingy placed it ever so modestly on my lap, waited and wiped sweat off of my face, and out from under my breasties. Finally my doctor came in she gave me the check-up talked to me a bit, excused me and sent me on my merry way. But not before I made an appointment for a bone density test for tomorrow, and a colonoscopy in the near future. Went down to the lab gave my blood, thank goodness for good veins! Oh the joys of being in your fifties! It is so stressful but so nice to have over for a year. Mammo on Monday and Dentist on Wednesday and I'm good to go, except for that colonoscopy!

Hey Susan-Of coarse I remember you! I think it's funny you found us on the 99 blog. I found you a few weeks ago but hadn't said anything yet. I am pretty new to this blog stuff, but I love it!

Hi Susan, thanks for stopping by my blog!! You're pretty brave to get all that stuff done. I haven't even been to the dentist in a while!

Thanks for all of your help Susan!! I have really appreciated it! I can't believe that summer is pretty much over. I am still in denial that school starts up next week. Mostly because I am not going back, I guess. I don't miss it yet!
