I was led back to the exam room by a Medical assistant. She was young and her body language led me to believe that she was new. We get in the exam room and I jump up on the exam table trying not to totally thrash the paper sheet under my butt (don't you just hate that sheet?).
The Medical assistant opens up my chart and looks a little puzzled. She flips around my chart and stops on an old pre-cancerous zap-a-thon and mole removal. I help her out and let her know what I am in for and direct her to the correct page. She giggles to herself and soon finds the right page.
She reads over my chart and then she says, "Wow, lots of big words that I am not familiar with, but it does say what ever that thing was that she cut off wasn't cancerous.......that's awesome!"
LOL! Love that professional assessment!
The doctor comes in, checks the biopsy area, checks all moles and then proceeds to burn off the latest pre-cancerous spots on my face and hands (I was going to share pictures, but I was worried you all might think I have leprosy so I changed my mind).
After the exam I was re-latching my bra under the lovely paper gown. The doctor sees me go for my bra and rushes over to help. She says, "Oh....do you need help hooking your bra." Seriously? I declined the offer and she quickly explained that she forgot I was still young and flexible. Hello, I hope I can still latch my own bra...I'm only 41 for goodness sakes!
That got me thinking.........forget about all those potentially cancer filled moles on my back or the sun damage that was done in the days of no sun screen, I never thought that someday I might not be able to hook my own bra!! Got me thinking, I better start being nicer to my husband, because apparently I might need him for something more than taking out the trash! :)
I was visiting Feather's blog yesterday and she had a link to a survey that shows if you should be allowed to vote. I thought if you haven't seen it already you might want to give it a go! My viewing of cable news is paying off............
You Should Be Allowed to Vote
You got 13/15 questions correct.
Generally speaking, you're very well informed.
If you vote this election, you'll know exactly who (and what) you'll be voting for.
You're likely to have strong opinions, and you have the facts to back them up.
By the way....even if you don't score high, I still think you should be allowed to vote. Well, unless you aren't on my team and then you need to study up and wait for the next election.
Just kidding! You all rock!
