I went to the doctor today for a follow-up to the lovely quick clinic visit I had. Dr. W- came in and did his, "Hey! What's going on today?" I felt like I was at confession.
"Dr. W-, I was so sick. I've been sick since last Tuesday. I ran a fever from Tuesday evening through Sunday night. I was so desperate on Saturday that I went to a quick clinic at the grocery."
"Oh, that's okay."
"You don't understand. I feel like I cheated. Besides, my husband said that he was rather certain that you would laugh at the story that I need to tell you."
I proceeded to tell him about the very nice, but very uncertain doctor that I visited. I told him about going from mystery illness to mono to sinus infection, then onto upper respiratory infection. I added the ums and hmmms in there. He was very kind to tell me the difference with just swollen glands and mono swollen glands. He talked to me about what I had, was slightly impressed by the high number I rolled and to which he added, "It made you feel like you had a bus run over you, right? You just couldn't get enough blankets on you, huh?" "Obviously, I did." "But no matter what you did, you were still freezing." Amen to that my brother.
Apparently, there is a viral upper respiratory bit that is running about and that is what I cashed in on.
So, I love my doctor. Love him. He sent me off with a pat on the back and chuckle and this parting line, "Did you at least get Fuel Perks with that?"
I think he was still laughing when I walked out.
Smiles in my day:
- PRAISE JESUS! I finally feel human. I'm also now starved from having not really eaten anything from Thurs - Sun.
- K- had science camp today and loved it. They worked on simple machines.
Please pray that my husband and child don't fall victim to the wretchedness that knocked me flat for 3 1/2 days.
Have a great day!
