Wednesdays Question

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

Here’s this weeks question: Do you see doctors on a regular basis? Does your car seem to only visit a grocery store and a doctors office?

Pretty much what’s happening to me. This morning I’m having two procedures done and one required a prep from Hades (I’ll bet the over 50 crowd knows about this procedure). It seems I’m going to one doctor or another for something all the time. Getting old isn’t for the weak of heart. If you’re young enjoy it.

    After having my liver transplant in 2008, I sometimes think I see more doctors than I do family members. I see my regular doc every three months, liver doc is now only once a year YAY, and I go every other month to get blood drawn. Not so bad anymore as it used to be. Could be worse. Hope your procedures go well. Been there done that! Much loves, Sandy

    Hi Sandee, I thank God that I do not need to visit the doc regularly. I only go for my checkups twice a year and I hope it remains that way. Well, my car goes a lot more places than just the grocery and doc office….Have a wonderful day.!

    There is no room on my calendar for me to have many doctor visits… what with my husband's, cat's, mother's and father's appointments. Srsly.

    So far I am blessed to only require my once a year checkup and dentals. Fingers crossed. πŸ˜€

    Funny, I was just at the doctor's office yesterday for check ups for two kids. Where we had to make a follow up appt. for one of them at the dermatologist. I seem to always be going to one medical person or another, for me or someone in the family.

    We aren't there quite yet, fortunately. We still go to the vet for our pets more often than we go to the doctor for us, yay! Our car also goes to the Denney's, the library and church every week. Coming up this month it will be going to some grad parties too!

    Yeah I have regular appointments and blod tests at the hospital to monitor the medication I am on for certain conditions ..nutcasitis is one of them =D>
    Have a prescriptiontastic day Sandee :-h

  7. Marg says:

    Oh yes, I do go to the doctor but usually only twice a year for the regular doctor and twice a year for the oncologist.
    Sure hope your procedures go well for you Sandee. You are so right, it is not fun getting old, but the alternative is even worse. Hope you and Zane and Little Bit all have a great day.

    My car goes to a few more places than the grocery store and doctor but it doesn't roam too far from home—80 miles at best. I've never in my life enjoyed driving.

  9. Ferd says:

    Yeah, I see doctors regularly and take a slowly-creasing number of pills. Mostly it is for maintenance visits, and that occasional procedure from Hades! My main worry is glaucoma, because it seems to have my doctor worried. My vision is still okay, an my numbers are fine on three drugs via two prescription drops. Nothing else to do for the moment except to actively enjoy the beauty of the world.
    I'm still working, so my car goes to more places than yours. But I know what you mean. I can envision the day that we really only need one car.
    Peace and love, Sandee! πŸ™‚

      Yes, we're traveling in that direction too. My Hades is over. I'm as cleaned out as is humanly possible. I've not had anything but water since 5:20 pm on Monday. I'm starving. My procedure is at 8 this morning and then it's coffee and something to eat. Peace and love back to you both. πŸ™‚

    This year I've seen my doctor to many times, nurses and blood tests ( my arm has so many holes marked ) I've had three colonoscopys since I turned 50 and I seem to have a swinging door at my hospital. Part of life I guess.
    Try to enjoy your day my friend. Have an interesting Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

    Our doc sez hubby and I are bad for his business…we go once a year for check up and bloodwork. And that five-year visit from hell! Although I did go Monday for what will be only a minor issue. Waiting on bloodwork report.

    Scritches to LB. Glad your day will soon be rosy again. Big hugs, honey…

      You both come from mighty fine stock. Good for you. Love you both. πŸ™‚

    Lately I see more docs than average, but besides that and the grocery store my car also is blessed to see my office, my family and travels quite often. But working hard to getting the doc thing fixed! Next up is OB to find out why no babies yet?!

  13. BeadedTail says:

    I'm not to that point yet but I know it's on the horizon! My car doesn't go many places so I've only put 1500 miles on it in the past 7 months. πŸ™‚

    Hope all goes well with your procedure! Scritches to Little Bit!

  14. Caren Gittleman says:

    Ugh you poor thing. My heart goes out to you. I was supposed to have my 5 year (already had what you are talking about) follow-up and I conveniently "forgot" it. Hope all goes well. The prep is the WORST! xoxo

  15. cube says:

    This is a bugaboo for me. I hate doctors and dentists because it seems to me that the more you go, the more you need. I'm over 50, but I don't get the Hades reference. Gosh, maybe it's some other test I need to do to feed their ever-loving need for a mansion and a Mercedes. Yes, I'm a bit jaded about this subject.

  16. Ann Thompson says:

    I haven't been to a doctor in quite a while which doesn't mean that I don't need to go. You know how bad I am about making appointments for groomers right? I'm just as bad about making appointments for other things.
