DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT…NO PRODS, NO POKES, NO JABS
Cold gray damp days don’t work for me so my time was spent indoors just staying warm. Poor night’s sleep again so it just kind of turned out to be a television day. I don’t mind a day like that every once in a very long while so I just took it as it came & enjoyed it. Even got to watch me part of an old black & white Abbott & Costello movie. Now, how cool is that on a cold damp cloudy day:))
BLUE JAYS ON THE BIRD STATION THIS AFTERNOON
Kelly made sure she came with me this morning to my Urologist’s appointment. She wasn’t going to let me get away with my two standard pat answers when returning home. When asked, “what did the Urologist say” she was having none of my usual, “oh nothing” or “can’t remember”. She was right there with her notebook & list of questions. I usually don’t ask a Doctor any questions because that just means I might have to sit there longer or end up getting poked, prodded, or invaded with any number of scarily shaped sterilized metal tools. I’ve always figured any kind of examination is to be avoided at all costs so mums the word when I’m there. “How are you today Mr. Bossence”? …………. “Fine”:))
PHEEBS ENJOYS SOME SNOOZE TIME STRETCHED OUT ON MY LAP
Luckily, no prods, pokes, or jabs this morning. However, I do remember the Urologist’s words, “that’s strange” as he looked over my medical charts from Tucson. Shades of the movie, ‘Alien’ came to mind. Anyway, two things came out of this morning’s meeting. They are lining me up for another CT Scan as soon as possible & he said this kidney stone problem has to be dealt with right away. On another note, my regular Doctor’s office phoned a few days ago with a scheduled appointment for a bone density test. Now, had they been talking about ‘head density’ I would have understood that perfectly. Anyway, we will likely be off to the Stratford Ontario General Hospital sometime next week for the CT Scan. Having already had a CT Scan in Tucson, I know it to be a rather relaxing & painless procedure…..and this is good:)) Oh, & I have an eye examination lined up for tomorrow. Might as well go all the way on my Spring tune-up, & the best part is, it’s paid for here in Canada because of my Senior status now:))
AWWWWW NUTS, THEY’RE BACK!!
Caught site of a Raccoon on top of my bird station last night chowing down on some birdseed so I had the Pheebs put a run on him right up a tree. I wanted that Coon to know we have a fast running Pheeber dog on the property now & it will not be business as usual for that pesky Coon this summer. And that goes for the Squirrels too……10-4!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, “I’m not sure…” “Look in your underwear, Grandma,” he advised, “mine says I’m 4 to 6.”
