I had to laugh--Dan said I was "pushing him out of the bed" last night. Huh?? He said I kept scooching (is that a word?) over onto his side of the bed until he had to nudge me. I must have finally been sleeping good, because I am not aware of any of that.
We got up about 7:30 and got ready to go to his appointments. First one was the cardiologist, Dr. Shah, scheduled for 9:00. We arrived, checked in, and ...... waited. Now, if you know Dan, he doesn't like to wait. Top that with the next appointment being scheduled for 10:00, and he's even more, umm, anxious. He went up to the window about 9:20 and told the nice lady he has another appointment at 10:00... a few minutes later we were called back through The Door. One of the girls got his weight and blood pressure and said the doctor would be in. And he was, at 9:55.
We had a discussion about scheduling. It seems that doctor himself has had issues with the way the schedules were today.
He looked Dan over, they talked, and Doctor Shah declared him good and to make an appointment for 4 months. Woo Hoo!!
On to the next office.
Dan had called Dr. Al-Sheikh's office to say he was late, but they wanted to reschedule to 11:30. We arrived about 11, and got called back about 11:45. I asked the girl if we were here for the 10:00 appointment or the 11:30 appointment--she gave me a look and said something about the way the scheduling is, and that she stays out of it. Kind of with a smirk.
Dr. Al-Sheikh was in within 5 minutes or so, and he and Dan chit-chatted. They talked about Dan's blood sugars and decided to leave the insulin doses as they are for the time being. Doctor looked Dan over, ordered a blood test, and called him good. Schedule an appointment in mid to late March. Woo Hoo!!
Leaving there, we stopped at the medical supply store for accucheck supplies, went to a lab for his blood draw, stopped and refueled the car, and came home.
I fixed us lunch and we ate. Dan put a package together to ship and took it to the post office. He ended up getting a call from a friend who needed help with a computer program setup and went over there, not getting back until almost dark.
Dan is geeked, excited that he is cleared to go to Florida. He went back and forth through the house several times gathering items, talking to himself, getting ready to go. Then he announces that he's going to leave in the morning. 0700.
Oh. Ok. "It's a long drive, and I don't want to drive after dark. You know I want to get through most of Alabama before I stop." Yeah, ok.
He's got himself all ready to go.
I've caught up on several days of reading email, and he's gone off to bed.
We'll pray that he has a safe trip.
Thank you for reading. Hugs.
