Would you believe I haven't seen one episode. I'd Love to start from the beginning.
I wanted to tell you about my Urgent Care experience just last week. (I am feeling better, thank you)
It is impossible to get in to see my doctor anymore. You have to call the morning first thing to see if you can get in that day. You can't make advance appointment unless for physicals. So, I needed to see a doctor since my daughter had strep and more sore throat wasn't going away.
So off to Urgent Care I go. I knew it would be a long wait with so many having the flu. So when I checked in there were about 6 waiting ahead of me. Not very crowded. So I waited.
So I will list the what the people said in the waiting room. I just sat there and didn't say a word.
This baby is my husband's. We just got married 2 weeks ago. He didn't even know he had this baby. His mom is in jail for drugs and she tried to sell this baby.
My son is here because he thinks he broke his hand. He was mad at his girlfriend and instead of hitting her he hit the stop sign. She drove off and he doesn't have any ID. She tells her son that he might not be able to get his meds without the ID. (She hadn't seen the doctor but was assuming their would be drugs involved) Mom could not remember son's birthdate. She remembered her cell number and his. (I can never remember mine)
This woman walks in limping. She said she fell at work last night She didn't have her insurance card and the receptionist said that was okay. Instead she limps clear out to her car and back in. Now I could never do that when my leg was hurting. She sat down and was talking with the lady with the baby. She started telling her how she could help the baby learn to talk. She and the stop sign guy didn't seem to be in any pain.
In walks in this very large and loud woman . She was really mad at her #%)&^& doctor for not phoning in her meds. She never stopped talking. She sits down and keeps talking about the $%%&*$^& doctor and how mad she was at him. She said she told him she would just get another doctor. I looked around to see who she was talking to......not one person was looking at her. She just kept talking.
I get called back. They put me in the last room and it was freezing. The nurse said it was terrible. So I waited and waited. I heard the doctor order an x-ray for the lady that came in after me. I heard the doctor tell the loud lady to open her mouth. She wrote her scripts and then told her to "stay out of trouble". Loud lady never stops talking. So........
I usually have a lot of patience but I didn't feel good, I was cold, and grumpy. So, I go out the door and run into the doctor. I asked if they had forgotten me. She said that the patients were seen in the order they come in. She was busy and she would get to me when it was my turn. I said but you saw the loud lady, the work accident lady and the boy that hit the stop sign. (Sounds like the ole lady that swallowed the fly sequence) She said that I could check with the receptionist and she would tell me she saw patients in the order they were seen. I said that I would.
Shortly after the doctor came in my room, all of a sudden very nice. and the visit was pleasant. On my way out I was going to stop at the receptionist and talk to her. The waiting room was full so I literally held my breath til I got outside.
You sure get an education about other people in a place like that.
I was in a Christmas kitchen swap with Jenny.( http://blogforanewyear.blogspot.com/) Here is what she sent me. It was a fun swap because we got to meet and learn about each others likes. She did a great job.
Look what else she sent me. Yeah. I love showing my skinny ankles.
I borrowed the pictures that Jen took of the things I sent her, since I forgot again.
I know it doesn't show but this a tiny little bottle that I found at Hobby Lobby. I had a hard time finding a tree small enough to fit through the top.
This was a teeny tiny cupcake pan that I got from Jillibean Soup.
Just a little of this and that.
This post was started yesterday. It's now past midnight and I need to turn in. Baby, it is cold outside. We went to Goose's basketball game this morning and then had our Christmas with my son and his girls. I will post those pictures soon.
