How I spend my day off

It should be spent on grading, but instead my morning was tied up with blood tests and X-rays. The doctor is suspecting something suspicious is going on, so I donated a quart for blood tests and got thoroughly irradiated for a while.

Might live a little longer, just because I’m getting pissed off.

    I hope all is well. I know what it’s like when those x-rays and scans turn up things you really didn’t want to know about. Of course it is for the best that they did.

    Ah, the doctor’s evil scheme is revealed: Piss you off so you keep living, keep seeing doctors, keep paying their fees. Will their diabolical plots never cease!!

    And oh yes, hope you’re OK.

    X-ray results are in: “exremely large spur formation” and “severe Achilles enthesopathy”. Yay. I have yet to talk to the doctor about what to do about it.

    My daughter has the same problem. She was told that a quick and simple surgical procedure was the best way to deal with it. Since her insurance will only partially pay for it, she’s waiting for that “someday” when she can afford it.

    Wow ,that was quick on the results of the x ray ,at the present time it’s up to two weeks to get results over here .
    Mind you ,your health service hasn’t had the bastard tory party in charge of it for the past 11 years .
    I had an x ray at the end of Sept to see if my lungs had been fecked up by the Methotrexate I was taking for my RA ,just got a phone call today saying they are fine and I can start again .
