Hello. This is the “Me” part of meandthecat. I haven’t produced a stunningly wonderful, peachy-keen blog for a while. *sigh* I’m pretty sure nobody noticed my absence, but what the heck, I thought I might as well announce I haven’t blogged for a little while because……………..Are you ready for this momentuous news?
I ben sik. —I mean, I have been ill. I really, really hate when that happens, it is such a total waste of time to feel like a big squishy blob of “yes I know I haven’t taken a shower for two weeks, just stand upwind of me then. sheesh” My bionic knee was (still is) giving me much pain, which is very annoying. The Big Important Orthopod Bonecutter took X-rays (well, HE didn’t take them, of course) filled a vial of some icky looking fluid from my knee and after one of the “techs” tested it, he said there’s no infection, everything is fine. (And to make a follow-up appointment in two weeks)
HEY! Hello? What about the pain? Alas it was too late, he had already left the exam room. I decided I do not like Big Important Orthopaedic Surgeons, but when I just casually happened to mention to his nurse as she was helping me slide off the cold metal table, “my-my, he certainly is full of himself, isn’t he?” She said, Oh most surgeons are that way, they can’t help it.
Thank goodness for Internists. Went whining to my primary care doc the other day, she fixed me up with a ‘script that solved [immediately] some discomfort so at least I accomplished something. I had suggested to the Orthopod that perhaps I needed Physical Therapy??? He grunted, I think it meant “Sure, good idea”. Why didn’t HE think of that?
So now I have something else to worry about when I start getting pummelled by therapists next Tuesday on my first appointment to their house of horror. I have no idea what to wear! Honestly, it’s always something.
