Charles- I have my gastroenterologist appointment next Thursday at 9:45 AM . . . Ionia has her cyberknife follow-up next Thursday. It’d be so funny if . . . nah . . . I wonder.
Text to Ionia- You have your follow up on the 22nd, right?
Charles- At 9:45 AM?
Ionia after a pause- How the bloody hell did you know that?
Charles- My gastroenterologist appointment is the 22nd at 9:45 AM. That’s strange.
Ionia- That’s really strange.
Charles- Should we make some WordPress fun out of this?
Ionia- Of course we should.
There you have it everyone! The secret of 9:45 is that Ionia and I had identical appointments completely by accident. We thought it was funny and decided to use it for some fun. Now for the updates:
Ionia’s follow up has been delayed a week, but this comedy still stands. Everyone continue holding the positive energy thoughts for her because it 1) makes her know we care and 2) makes her uncomfortable. Love you, bestie! *ducks barrage of squirrels*
Myself . . . myself. It’s spastic colon with extra spasms. I managed to give a good enough description to not have invasive tests and I’ll be on medication. Nothing major. I feel an attack come on, I pop a pill and relax to let it go away. I have a follow up in 2 months where we decide on if things improved or if new tests are needed. Key thing here is relaxing, which I will try very hard to do. Oddities of the visit:
- I have amazingly perfect blood pressure for a guy that comes in as obese on the BMI. They were impressed.
- The doctor pinned me as an author within minutes and I never mentioned it. It might be due to the flowery language and description I was using. I mean, I went into full details to the point where he was impressed. Seriously, I talked my way out of a colonoscopy, which should earn me a bloody medal.
There you have it. The mystery is solved and you know how people are doing. Stay tuned for a post later tonight with book titles and a question for a special posting theme of next week. Also, go give Ionia hugs on her blog.
