You want me to what?

So the annoying stiffness in the fingers and general feeling of fogginess in the brain sent me to the doctor yesterday. And after helping a very nice, but scared lady with a bee sting on her face get into the ambulance safely, he came to visit with me. Doc Parks is very nice, although I think this is the first time I've met him, even though his name is on the door - usually I see a NP. So I thought that was cool. He and I hold hands for a bit, and his general line of thinking is artritis - not the growing older one, but the specific area one (yeah, he told me... but, um, I dont remember which is which). Then we chatted about the other stuff going on, and he mentioned that sometimes hypothryoid will give you the focus problems I've been dealing - then went on to tell me the story of a patient who is a math teacher that came to him unable to do her math problems. Well, I've never been good at math... but anywho. He ordered bloodtests and x-rays and sent me on my way with orders to come see him in 3 - 4 weeks.

This morning I went to the vampires who stole 6 vials of blood from me, then to the x-ray people who took 3 x-rays. Now I wait.

The advice from the doctor while I wait - Take some advil or alieve if you need it and lay off the crochet.


So, I go to see my fiberfriends tonight and I can watch them and drink my $5 iced tea and smile, and remind myself that it's not that bad. Right? Ugh.

I will leave you with a picture of the oft-neglected cat.

And speaking of pictures, the boys go Sunday at 12:20. Wish us luck.
PS: Day 2 on crazydiet is going well - a pear for breakfast, orange and grapes for lunch, sandwich for dinner and strawberries for dessert.
