Five years in.
Had labs drawn Monday, I will meet with the Doc after 2 weeks. I have been doing this now for a couple years. It works well because you have the big test results (pcr) to discuss, rather than if something shows up we'll give you a call.
It doesn't get any easier waiting for the results.
I didn't think I had been gone from the board for so long, but I can't remember when I was on last. I felt like I was getting caught in a OCD habit of checking the board so often.
I decided a couple years ago that I was not going to just wait for the other shoe to drop, and that it was time to get on with things. I started planning my retirement. Then along came the opportunity for a big career change, and suddenly I have retired from one place and started at another! So much for the life of leisure!
