A Replacement Physician
Friday, May 17, 2019
Half way through our time in Hawaii I got a cold but got over it. There was also a week around that time when my knee flattened me. I got over that one too, or so I thought. Last week my husbands cold ( a gift from me ) seemed worse than ever, so we had a visit with his primary care md who immediately prescribed antibiotics. The 10 days are up today and we both reported in to the covering doctor. He is fine, but he commented on my miserable cough and she checked me out . I actually was there for my knee and got more than I bargained for.
She found the precise area that ‘pongs’ the most, plus one other tender bit. Within the hour I was getting chest Xrays ‘ just in case’ , a powerful nasal spray for sinus, and several X-rays on my wonky knee. I also have a date in June for an ultrasound on the offending knee.
She was thorough. Efficient. Pleasant.
We are home now after buying a tank of very expensive gas, wouldn’t you know the prices would jump up for the Victoria Day weekend, but we had lunch out together, got to the bank, got a fill-up, and a perfect sunny day.
The weatherman says the sun will go by tomorrow afternoon. But today was so lovely and warm. Who can complain ?
If it’s still nice out we will get to a park or a ravine area to walk, and then dinner with friends.
I feel so much better now that Dr H had a good look at me. Seems I qualify for OHIP physiotherapy and she has encouraged me to keep exercising meanwhile.
Have a wonderful weekend . I hope the sun shines on you as well.
