Oh yeah, we're going there.
Being approximately six years behind schedule, I did it. I went for the TOTAL physical. My labs were all good. And THE test came back perfect, no problems. Hallelujah, thank you Jesus and God bless all the orphans in Africa. I have a mammogram (first ever) in three weeks. Will post a picture of a waffle iron to share that experience.
But, get this, I got a UTI! I have always prided myself on my urinary health. I am not entirely convinced it's a for-real one but my doctor showed me the leukocytes and trace blood in the urinalysis so I'll take her word for it. I am symptom free although now that she has told me there's something cooking down there, I swear to you I am having some vague pain. Anyway, on the Cipro I go which is good as it is the only effective antibiotic for anthrax so I feel extra protected.
Anyway, to any gentlemen unfortunate enough to stumble upon this blog, I apologize. Just be happy I couldn't find the picture of my sister and I (fully clothed) in the stirrups at the hospital. I think we made my mom a Christmas ornament out of that one.
And in general, Margie; you may now get off my back for three years!
P.S. I intentionally told Margie I was in need of a check-up knowing she'd ride me until I gave up and had the thing to make her go away. That's love.
