Just for a giggle

Friday, August 07, 2009

So I went to see a dermatologist about a bothersome thing on my cheek. (It's not cancer, thank God, and he treated it). Our medical center allows patients to access their records online. Today, I went online to get the name of the thing on my cheek and saw what he wrote about me. "A pleasant, well nourished woman". For some reason, it really tickled my funny bone. "Well nourished" - yeah, like nourished enough for several people lol. Anyway, I thought I'd share it in case it gives anyone else a giggle.
I would correct it, however, since I'm not this big from being well nourished, but from not being well nourished! But now that I'm part of SP, well nourished is becoming more accurate every day!
Have a happy weekend.

    I grinned reading your post, but thought I would let you know that is very common language on medical histories... emoticon emoticon

    Glad you found spark. There is so much to learn and it is fun to have support along the way. This entry did make me laugh. I am so glad you got that checked out and that it wasn't serious. I am not sure if I told you this but I love that bible quote on your page. If you ever need anything, I am only a click away. From, Mcgee emoticon

    Tee hee! You know, I wouldn't mind being referred to as pleasant and well nourished. As you said, SP is helping us to become healthier eaters...hence...well nourished. Hope your cheek is healing nicely.

    Yes, I got a giggle out of this too! You make a good point with the meaning of "well-nourished". Perhaps he remembered that his patients could go online and read what he wrote and was trying to gently note the circumstance without offending you. Glad it wasn't cancer!

    Glad it wasn't anything serious. I actually like the "well nourished" description and would take that as a compliment.

    Perhaps because it can be viewed from a different perspective. For instance, we tend to "nourish" something/someone we care about. Be it with food/water for loved ones, plants and pets, knowledge for students, ... Your blog entry reminds us to "nourish" ourselves with nutritious food and exercise, knowledge and perhaps most of all with patience.

    Happy your day went well. Congrats on the first blog entry!
