Well if it was not official before, is really is now. I am boring. I went to Pittsburgh for PCR and hematologist visit, labs before, in the office at 10:30. My appointment was for 11:00. Sat there until 11:35 called to the room, the usual, weight, blood pressure, pulse and then the 'news'. Doctor had left for an early lunch, so if I had any questions, he would return around 1 or so, if I were inclined to wait. hhhhmmmmmm Husband takes off work, pull boy from school, travel 2 hours one way to have my questions written down on the back of a lab sheet and talk to the nurse. I thought when my numbers were getting better in January I was boring, my first appointments when he talked transplant were over 1/2 hour. Then in January it was about 12 minutes, this time lunch was more pressing.
Funny thing about this appointment. You all told me it would come, you all told me I would get there, but I was skeptical. You were right. I didn't worry before, I wasn't even angry when I was told the professional left the building, instead mildly amused I think, about two weeks out for PCR results, and so far that isn't even a concern. I have leukemia and I cannot forget that, but it does not have to play a part in every moment of my life nor does wasting time worrying about possibilities make the results any different.
Anyway, I am so officially boring the doctor doesn't think giving me the 15 minute appointment is worth the effort. I should be angry, annoyed, upset; instead it was, and still is kind of funny.
I hope you all become very boring to your doctors as well; boring, is not always a bad thing.
