Doctor's Visit

September 30th, 2014 at 02:24 pm

I had a doctor's appointment after work last night ($15 copay). We discussed my statin prescription, which has run out. My numbers have been so good, he wants me to stop taking it for one month and then get labs to see how I'm doing. But he also wants me to take a baby aspirin each day. I used to do that regularly, just got out of the habit.

When I went to the ER, the doctor there recommended a stress test because of my family heart history, even though the tests showed nothing. My primary doctor does not think a stress test is indicated, as I am showing no symptoms at all. I like his take on it better!

Then we talked about more mundane things. The corn on my foot, and the mole on my back. He recommended paring the corn and buying gel inserts. (I'll buy them this evening.) As for the mole (it is a harmless thing that has a special name -- I can't remember it) -- he froze it with liquid nitrogen, so I'm hoping it will fall off. It may be harmless, but it's ugly.

So I felt like it was a very productive, and cheap, visit!

I also got a notice of settlement on my ER visit. Nothing more is owed; insurance covered it all. Whooppee!! I guess I don't know for sure about the ambulance service, but I haven't heard anything about that.

I wrote a cover letter yesterday, but I am still holding onto it for editing. Wish I could just dash these things off, but I can't!

    A good cover letter is hard to write. Crossing my fingers for you.

    It usually takes me a week to write a cover letter, and then I send it to two or three people for comments and editing ...
