Daily Drama – Dr. Games

After a week straight of coughing the last thing I needed today were Games at the new Dr.’s office. Ok so maybe I am not a star patient. I did jokingly ask that they put me on the Do Not Weigh List.  I mean geez I’ve got another Dr. weighing me every 6 fracking weeks, …

Daily Drama – Mom of the Year

Apparently I will not be winning the Mom of the Year award. Anywhere.  What is it just barely breaking November? Right. Yet I have already managed to reach bitch status at my daughter’s High School, and now I am working my way up on the “Bad Mom” list at my son’s school as I am …

new MD Tale – I said What Now?

I have been singing my new MD high praises. Love her. Oh yes. I also love the access to the patient portal thingie where you can view and even print your own patient visits. Until I looked at a visit from a few weeks ago. I said What Now? Because I sound like a total …

Tale from my Crypt – Pot in the Air

Shortly before surgery last May my mother insisted on accompanying me to my pre-op appointment. I warned her gory details could be discussed. She said it was fine, as she wanted to be there to support me as she always has. Not only had I had been very serious and selective in choosing my surgeon, …

Daily Drama – Quasi Dr. Deal

Somehow not only do I keep managing to forget the throat Dr’s name, but his appointments as well. Perhaps it’s subconscious as I was slightly highly offended he stated I needed a nose job in addition to a tonsillectomy. Then when I saw all the photos of the Res-pumped lips I wondered if perhaps I …

another Chewy Tale – The beyotch is back

“The bitch is back.” This is what I imagine they are all thinking as I stroll into the Dr.’s office this morning, aka Chewy and associates. Since, truly, I feel that Chewbacca is running the place now. Of course I realize I can be difficult, but it is visits like these which make me act, well, bitchy. First and foremost, I had …

pre-surgery Tale – prepare to become a “hyster-sister”

Since my need for surgery came up rather unexpectedly, I had just shy of two weeks to prepare, one of which I was traveling. Given this short notice, if you will, my Type A Personality upgraded to a Type AAA+ As my visits to the Dr.’s office increased in the days leading up to the surgery, my concern with the receptionists’ confusion mounted. They continually …

dramamama gets serious Tale – The new Dr.

Exactly two weeks following my full work-up with Chewy and associates, the phone rang… Upon answering the telephone, I did not recognize the cheery caller on the other end, “Hi, this is the Medical Assistant from the Dr.’s office.” Chewbacca? Wow, I never would have guessed, as she sounded, well, jovial. “Yes?,”  I responded, thinking she …
