'Virtual Friday' Date...And Checkup UP-date!!

      Happy Friday, Everybody! :-) Or at least I 'hope' it's a happy Friday for you!...Considering what my Thursday was like, Friday...Oh Yeah!'s just gotta be happy!!...It's just GOTTA!!! O_O
      My Thursday consisted of cold...brrrr!...aching joints...OUCH!...and an unexpected visit with the doctor. O_O No!...I was not expecting to have to 'see' the doctor. I had expected that when I called his office to get the results of my bloodwork, I'd get the results of my bloodwork!...and that's all!! O_O ...

      Who knew that, even though I was told that everything seemed normal as to my blood levels, he would still want to talk to me?! O_O *gulp!* ... Apparently the things that are happening to me, in this old tired body, are making the doctor scratch his head a little...He doesn't know why a complete 'crazy woman' itching incident is then followed by...***sorry. I have to say it***...clots!...Sometimes LARGE ones! O_O
      I assumed it had something to do with me going through the change (Menopause), and wasn't too concerned about it, but apparently one thing doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the other! O_O 
      Apparently my telling him about the clotting had him more concerned about whether I was anemic, but my blood levels were fine! O_O ... So, "What shall we do, Doc?...Just wait and see?!"...His answer?!...."Uhhhhhhh...let me see you."...
      So, later in the day, there was a doctor visit, some checking of this, and checking of that, an attempt at taking my blood pressure with a broken blood pressure cuff. ^_^ Nothing major. Just me fooling with the doctor when the little needle fell out of the middle of his dial on the blood pressure machine! LOL
      He was so embarrassed. ^_^ But, needless to say, I was concocting a blog post about it in my head the whole time it was happening!! ^_^ ...

       It was so funny watching him screw the casing off, pick up the little needle, check it out closely under the light, flip it over, left and right, put it back in the center...and try to screw it back in...around and around...using his thumb like a pair of flat pliers!! LOL
      Then he turned it until the needle pointed to it's suppose to do! O_O...screwed the casing back on, put the blood pressure cuff around my arm, squeezed the air pressure bulb to make the cuff blow up, and......NOTHING!!!! LOL The needle totally didn't move AT ALL!! ^_^ 
      He said: "Hmmm...I just used it yesterday! O_O".....Me, totally cracking up laughing inside, and in the mood to mess with the doctor, said: "WOW! How high was the person's blood pressure that you used it on yesterday?!" LOL...

      At that point we both started laughing!..."Got him!!" LOL...Even a serious doctor doesn't have a chance when I'm in the mood to feel better!! ^_^

      Speaking of feeling better, let me stop right here and tell you about the lovely and sweet gift and note I got from a dear friend yesterday. She knows that I've been having some health challenges lately, so she sent me a 'feel better' gift...a little gift tote bag...which I forgot to take a photo of. ^_^
      The tote wasn't the really special gift anyway. It was the 'words' she sent! :-) ...

     There was among the words...a cute photo of her kittens!! :-) ...

      Then...more loving and encouraging words! ;'_'; ...

      Yes, my dear friend...♥♥♥...your words made me smile! :-) ... and so did the flower that you stuck to the letter!!!! :-) ...

      I have great friends, don't I?!! ♥

      Okay...back to the doctor visit...he checked my skin. He checked my heart. He checked my oxygen levels (with a pulse oximeter that reminded me of crochet row counters! LOL)...

      In the end, he decided that, while most things are great, he's still slightly concerned about a couple of other things. So, I'm gonna have some more testing done soon...*sigh*...Bring on the machinery!!!...Ugh!
      I'm sure that whatever machinery he finally decides's not gonna have pretty flowers all over these pretty flowers I found on Etsy that you can put on your stethoscope! :-) ...

      I don't know why the doctor doesn't just check and clean out the inside of my head and let that be that!! LOL

      Enough about doctors and checkups!! I've got a 'virtual' date to pack for...and I don't even know where I'm going yet!! ^_^ ... I do know that there will be good food, good company (I love the Fridays I spend with my hubby! ♥), and good music though! :-) ...

      I wouldn't be alive to be checked up on without it!! LOL ... Have a good weekend, Everybody! ♥

Virtual trip

I really like to travel,
See the world, expand my mind.
But not getting on an airplane,
or hunting luggage I can't find!

I like a 'good ole' virtual trip.
Computer details. Music too.
Where you don't need a 'stinking' passport,
or have to wear a 'stinking' shoe!

But a little stay at home,
under covers, lock and key,
can also be expansive.
Even if it's 'virtually'.
