Well, there's not a whole lot going on here. I took a half day from work because I had a doctor's appointment. It was nothing big, just a routine checkup. Now, originally, for some reason, I thought my appointment was for 2 even though I wrote down 3. I called this morning and confirmed that it was for 3.
I left work at 1 and called one of my closest friends who works near my doctor's office and got her to meet me for lunch. It was a short visit but good. When she headed back to work, I headed to the doctor figuring that if I arrived early, hopefully they'd see me early.
They took me into the room about 25 minutes before my scheduled time and I thought this was great. Blood pressure - good. Weight - not so good, but not so bad either. With everything that's been going on this year I either don't have the time to exercise or if I have the time I don't have the energy. At my weight loss peak I was down 49.5 pounds. I have gained 20 pounds back. I'm not happy but I'm regaining my focus and planning to work it off again. And, honestly, I was afraid I had gained more back.
The room I was in was small and the AC was cranking. Here I sat sans pants under a paper sheet for 20 minutes. The doctor finally comes in, does a two minute exam and tells me to have a good day! Talk about frustrating!
Originally I had planned to try to get together with AIM tonight so when I left the doctor I called him. I didn't get an answer so I left messages at home and on the cell. I still haven't heard from him. The thing is that I'm not freaking out about this. He had an MRI today and when we spoke last night, I said if he was up to it, I'd come visit for a while. So I'm sure that he is probably drugged up and asleep. At least, I hope that's what it is and that it's nothing more serious.
Turned out though that it wasn't a big deal. My doctor's office is near the hospital my dad is in so I went and hung out with him for a few hours.
Nothing too interesting but that was my day and I felt like sharing!
