Things that suck

When your surgeon's nurse calls at 5:30 p.m. because the bloodwork you got done on Monday came in from Sketchyville -- you guessed it -- sketchy.

According to Monday's bloodwork, I had a bilirubin of 5.3. Must have been a typo, because the draw I was ordered to come into the ER tonight to take was 1.3. But I'm grateful that my doc was looking out for me...

On the plus side, my surgeon did my follow up exam and said I could come back and see him in 2 weeks. I also got a "eat and exercise at your own discretion" statement in my release. Nice. So, tomorrow, I'll be walking a bit more, especially because  I was able to wear sweatpants comfortably today! Perhaps tomorrow I'll try some workout pants and a sports bra.

Dr. Ollie, as my ER nurse calle dhim, is a very reasonable guy, but a bit like Silent Bob in the communications department. I still have to call his office today to cancel tomorrow's and schedule another follow up for 2 weeks. (He's gonna want to see another bloodwork panel since I, apparently, am a fraudulent freak.)
