So today I had my follow-up visit to the doctor who I saw when my blood pressure was through the roof. Thanks to eating better, running and biking my BP is back to normal and my pulse rate is 48. Strong like bull!
But I still need to keep the promise I made to myself when I turned 40 and continue my yearly date with Dr. Jellyfinger. The doc took me to his scheduling nurse and we opened our respective calendars to six months from now. I always like to get the first appointment of the day so that it won’t be more than an hour delayed.
“I can get you an 8:00 on February 14,” the nurse said while beginning to scribble instructions on the appointment card.
I replied, “Because nothing says ‘I love you” on Valentine’s Day like a digital prostate exam.”
I must have flustered her at the exact moment that she was writing that I was supposed to be “fasting” on the day of the appointment.
That’s right, according to my doctor, I have a appointment for a “fisting” on February 14.
Not looking forward to that one…
