Sentences you love to hear from your Daughter…. ” Hey, mom, I’m at the piercing place..

At least my warranty hasn’t run out.

Got the theme song to bewitched stuck in my head, and to share the pain I’ve been whistling it all day.  Thanks Alot Xanga Dude!
Today was Doctor Day!  WooHoo!   I don’t normally mind going to the doctor.  I’m pretty healthy, and she doesn’t bother me much as long as I don’t bother her.  Today was a litte unnerving – I’ll get to that, one sec.

I have freaky high blood pressure for no apparent reason so we worked out a deal, I go in every 6 months, and she keeps writing me prescriptions.  I take Toprol XL which is wonderful, and if you have high blood pressure, I strongly recommend giving it a try.  The side effects are almost non-existent.  Most blood pressure medicine has wicked side effects.  The Toprol at a very low dosage once a day keeps me borderline and keeps everyone happy.  One little pill is a whole lot better than the alternatives. (ERIN!) you know, stroke, cracked arteries that then fill with plaque and cause heart-attack, Migraines.

She’s ordered a thyroid test for me so I got that done on the way home, after a 45 minute wait at the lab. ~sigh.
I made her laugh when she asked if I was having regular periods.  I replied, yup, like clockwork, every 3 or 4 months or so. I’m working my way up to that magic 12 month number. Definitely something to be said for early menopause.

She also had to write me up an order for a follow up mammogram.  I had one about 6 months ago, and they found some lumpy areas. So then I had another one which was to say the least uncomfortable because the lumpy stuff is on the bottom and they were trying to get a nice clear image.  Well, afterwards they said to me, it’s fibroidal tissue, pretty common, benign growth, come back in six months for a recheck.  No biggie.  When she was reading the report today, it said Fibroidal Tissue, “probably” benign.  Amazing the difference that one little word makes isn’t it!  Geesh.  So, more boob squishin fun soon.
(I’m sure for some of you that was WAY more information than you ever wanted about me. To Bad!)

Hey!  Just looked up and noticed a car going west outside of my office. Only noteworthy since it’s a four lane one way street going east.  Well, back to work for me.  Enjoy your Friday!
