I had to get caught up with replies to comments, so there’s not much for tonight. I didn’t even get a chance to read any blogs, but I can do that tomorrow and I’ll be caught up with everyone. YAY!!
My doctor appointment went well. Very well!! He was laughing about how quick I went home after my hysterectomy. He confessed how worried he was about me out of his 3 patients for surgery that day. Diabetics don’t usually react well and I was the oldest (about to turn 40….the other 2 were mid-20’s to 30’s). I was amazed that of all his patients, he retold the story of my surgery with precision. He said here I was the oldest and diabetic going home the day after and the other 2 women remained for 4 days. 4 DAYS!! Man oh man!! Then I went back to have my staples removed and I was already healing. He was more than amazed. He asked if I had regrets and I told him that I haven’t looked back. Life without pain is a wonderful thing!! He also told me that if I can’t get in to see him after we retire and don’t like what I find off post, to contact him and he’ll get me in. He said it’d be best to stay with someone that knows my history anyway. I agree!! The only downside is that he wants me to schedule a mammogram. Oh goody, the ole pinched boob treatment. I just hope the tech knows how to handle a real boob. Last time, she had quite the struggle and told me “I’m not used to having to work with this much breast” and then she got embarrassed. Meantime I’m just standing there waiting for it to be over. She asked why I wasn’t complaining about the pain (because I guess everyone else does) and I told her “first, I have a fairly high pain tolerance and second, you have a baby sucking on that for a year and a little pinch is the least of your worries”. She got embarrassed again. You know, they should just call it what it is…..a torture device!!
So, about all I have for you tonight is an update on the Olympics. We didn’t medal in the men’s all around gymnastics. A few mistakes hurt. Did you see that guy from Japan crash and burn. That HAD to hurt!! Phelps qualified….again and will be going after 2 more medals. Other male swimmers didn’t fair as well, but we did bring one home. The women are struggling. I can’t tell you about the other events because NBC isn’t covering them and I haven’t had a chance to read up tonight. Oh….and women’s beach volley ball kicked butt again!! I saw Serena play tennis too. Good stuff!! So, at this point, we’re one medal behind China, but they have a big lead with the gold’s. And check out those Aussies….they’re kicking some butt too!! Poor Miss K still has nothing to track for her country of Belgium. Today’s medal count is:
