A Wednesday Check-In.

I didn't post yesterday because I had a long ass day at the doctor's. My primary recced me to a urologist, a dietician and another pain management clinic - (per my request they are sending me to the pain clinic my little brother used to go to, as he said they helped him a lot). Just trying to get a handle on my pain, fatigue and UTIs. I saw the urologist yesterday and I see the pain management clinic in August and the dietician in September.

Anyways, the urology clinic is the same one I went to for years and years for kidney stone issues. But I apparently haven't been there since 2003, so they had to register me as a new patient. When I got there, they told me I would be with Dr. F and I was like, "Oh, he's who I used to see back in the day." So when I got into the room, the resident comes in first and he says, "Here's funny thing for you, I just told the doctor that I was coming in to to see *Sister* and he says '*Dodger-Sister?*' and I said 'Yeah do you know her? It says she's a new patient?' and he says, 'No, she's a very old patient, ha!" I was so surprised. I expected he would remember me when he saw me, but that he pulled my first name out of the air like that was a surprise.

He came in and we talked for about 10 minutes about what is going on with me - (gave me a list of things to do to avoid UTIs and take cran pills and a plan for the future if this doesn't work and assured me that my kidney test came back good) - and then we talked for like 15 minutes about the Detroit Tigers. My poor sister was just sitting in the back of the room playing on her phone while me and the two docs talked baseball, lol. Dr. F looked good too! He's one of those guys that ages really well. If I had to cast a Hollywood actor to play him in a movie, I'd go with John Slattery (Roger Sterling from Mad Men). Slattery would be like the Hollywood!version of him, the slightly better looking version but still, Dr. F looks good!

Also, it looks like we will be taking The Nephew to the Hot Air Balloon festival this weekend. His parents are taking him in the morning and then we are meeting up with them later and hanging out, then taking him to the Kids Kingdom carnival gaming area and to get fair food and then he is staying the night. If I feel up to it, he and I can play some Monopoly in the evening. He really enjoyed it the last time. He's getting really good at strategy games.
