OK, so I went to the doctor again today. Now - my own doctor is on vacation (if anyone ever deserves a vacation it's a good and thoughtful doctor) so I saw one of her partners. I like my doctor a lot. I like her partner even more.....
Turns out she's young, very friendly, and shares a whole bunch o' Points of Commonality with us:
1. She's an MOT (Jewish....we refer to one another informally as "members of the tribe");
2. She's a transplanted New Yorker - in fact, grew up on Long Island (as did Mr. Dearling);
3. Her husband is a goy (non-Jew...NOT a derogatory term; Mr. Dearling is also goyesha)
4. We have some friends in common!
So I enjoyed visiting with her. But we weren't there for tea - in fact, Mr. Dearling had a list. So we went over everything, she took notes, ordered a couple more tests (*blood tests...see below) and changed out a couple of prescriptions. I've said it before - I'll say it again: I'm a believer in Better Living Through Chemistry. In this case....from my lips to God's ears.
So we'll see what the next couple of days hold - hopefully some improvement because as much as I love "CSI" (the original one) I'm beginning to tire of it, as I watch it all day. This is still a Heckuva Major Drag.
*Blood Tests: I have perfectly lovely large vein s in my elbows (I may have mentioned that before, too tired to go back and look - apologies, if so). And I have no qualms, fears, problems about blood draws. At least not by normal phlebotomists in lab coats. Long capes, sparkling teeth - not so sure.
