X-Ray Porn, Squash, Blood Suckers, & Ginger

Posted: June 3, 2013 by By The Numb3rs (BTN LLC) in Uncategorized

Nike-Blazer-ACG-Premium-X-Ray-1Today I saw Dr. Lockwood, my primary care physician. I was a little concerned I fractured my knuckle on my right ring finger. She said if it had been fractured it would have healed that way (you know…jacked up? It happened around six weeks ago, give or take). I wanted to make sure I didn’t have anything else going on. After the the tech got all the films she needed, she let me look at the images (x-ray porn). My phalanges (finger bones) look very sexy without skin on!

Then I had a follow up squash (mammogram) to a finding on a set of films from the tail end of last year. My insurance prevented a screening of both girls  ecause – and I quote – “It’s too soon”. Yep. If I want to find out what is happening with the other girl, I have to arrange to have her flattened after August 8th, 2013. What a bunch of bureaucratic horse…..

*sigh*

My weight loss doctor’s office is across the parking lot in another building so I wandered over to say hi. An hour and nine vials of blood later (yeah NINE!). Stacy (his nurse & one of the Blood Suckers) and I are chatting up a storm about Mark and why she needs to physically check out boot camp (reading the info posted on the bulletin board in the back of the office doesn’t count) while Little Dracula drained my arm for the labs. I am most likely going to get an earful. I forget to take my vitamins. They’re in plain view, right next to my favorite drug machine coffee pot (Starbucks, Italian Dark Roast, Turkish grind…..love). Alarms, sticky notes, wipe board notes, chalkboard notes, accountability reminders…seriously I do not know, nor do I have, a good excuse to not take them. Which means Dr. Doyle is going to get on my butt about my iron levels. I will most likely have to do the infusion thing. :\ Yay me.

So…while I wait with held breath for all my results, think I’m going to take a coffee and brew a vitamin.

Six Degree of Separation Note: Dr Lockwood walked into the room and after she said hi said, “Okay…can I just tell you…Ginger thinks you’re amazing?” My friend Anne works in the lab. Ginger knows my Aunt Lorrie. My Aunt and Anne have periodically chatted about my weight loss. Anne connected the dots. We all at some point have trained with Mark. After more than a year of Facebook interactions, I met Ginger two weeks ago at Boot Camp.
