Visits to Doctor’s offices, laboratories, x-ray, and other images, seem to be taking up a lot of my time lately. A lot of my money too. They, most often, take a whole day away from me. The process of getting ready, getting there and back home again, drains my energy and brings on the pain.
Yesterday, I had the second Doctor’s visit for this week. This was my first appointment with a Rheumatologist. It was an hour drive there and an hour drive back. Plus a change in Time Zones from CST to EST, so I lost an hour in there somehow. We were there for nearly three hours.
Luckily, the clinic I went to included several Doctor’s in one building, plus a Laboratory and Imaging center. So, at least I didn’t have to get in and out of a car to go here and there, I just had to walk, which is difficult for me, but so is getting in and out of a car. Kind of like, ‘Damned if you do and Damned if you don’t’.
Right away, I learned my Rheumatologist was in the rear of the building. I thought I wasn’t going to make it, but I did. After my appointment, I had to walk back to the Laboratory and then back to the front of the building for imaging. At least I got a little break, at each station.
On Monday, I had an appointment with my Neurologist. I received a new prescription and he wants a Head Scan. I’m waiting for them to set it up and call me. I’m thinking it will be after the Holiday’s. Next Monday, I have to go in for more Blood Work, for my Nephrologist. Afterword, we will travel back to Georgia to have Christmas with Hubby’s father and step-mother. I will be cooking on Tuesday, then head up on the mountain, to my oldest daughter’s home, on Christmas Morning.
Maybe, there will be a period of rest before I start another cycle of Doctor’s appointments in January 2014.
