This morning was an early start, I had another “date” with TRA in Gig Harbor and as I slipped into their less than flattering surgical gowns ( all two of them) once again, I considered the likelihood of either them being added to our ever growing Christmas card list or me being added to their “people we need to add to our Christmas card” list. I never had a “back issue” and have struggled not to be added to the “most likely to make a back surgeon rich” list but, despite all my best intentions and Mum J and Mom Sikoras’ prayers I feel that I am going to have that dubious distinction. Tomorrow I find out what has gone wrong this time and what I have to do to make the wrong right! America has been good to me and I have no complaints about how I am being taken care of but I have a very Anglicised and hostile attitude to the “your radiologist will advise your physician and then I have to make yet another appointment for my doctor to tell me what the radiologist told him ” ( Ggggggrrr) mentality that says I have to wait to find out if I have a valid and significant reason to moan and be miserable. If I am miserable, I am almost always justified, I always try to see the positive in any negative situation but right now I am just plain in a world of hurt…and I can’t see why, if the radiologist has told my doctor ( which I know he has, because I was told as much) why I can’t be told the score without having to make another appointment… it is my body and my hurt. Thank you Jim and TRA Gig Harbor for your humour and compassion, you guys do make a miserable situation so much more bearable. Tomorrow if I find out that I DO have a good and valid reason to moan, trust me, THE WHOLE World is going to have to suffer my moaning… and If I don’t have a good and valid reason to moan but have had to wait till tomorrow to find out, then it’s going to be even worse.
Well, it’s almost bed time, Bran is waiting to go out and water a tree or three, Greg has turned the television off, attempted to turn the Lulu cow to the USA flag (unsuccessfully) and all the eggs are washed and counted. Tomorrow is another day, take care, keep safe, M
