Monday, 2PM.
Dentist does the "Good news / Bad news" thing. Nothing wrong, but upcoming insurance changes make it in my best interest to get my 12 year old cap replaced SOON.

(I send thanks out to my dear ex-wife for hitting me in the freaking side of the head with a heavy object as a way to drive home a point. If not for your thoughtfulness, my dentist would not be able to afford a new BMW.)

Tuesday, 9AM.
Sleeping well. Phone rings, doctor wants to know exactly what time I would like to show up for my 8AM appointment.

Tuesday, 10:30AM
In a classically understated manner, the Doc says "so, how long have you had those nodules on your thyroid?"

Thursday, 1:00PM
Ultrasound of thyroid scheduled. Possible consult with surgeon to follow.

Friday, 10:30
Told to expect to be in the dental chair for 1:45.

=====
Time to update the games on my cell phone.

soblue At least he caught it earlier than you would have had you not gone in. I'm glad you're doing the right thing and getting it checked out ASAP. I've had several family members not get something checked out right away because they were scared of the results. Sometimes the results ended up being great, sometimes they ended up being really, really bad, only because they weren't dealt with in a timely manner.

This made me bust out laughing. I'm going to try to work this into one of my appointments today!

(All the best with everything)

That is a terribly unfair question to post alongside a picture of Jessica Alba.

Off to the doc. Back in a bit.

Back. Results should be in on Monday.

However, based on the look on the ultrasound tech's face, I am assuming it's a boy.



BTW: Brown Sugar Cinnamon took an early lead, but Strawberry won out in the end. So I ate them both.

But one of each beat out Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon. So you should have had one of each, and then a Strawberry.

Note that you can check ALL the boxes, which really makes it TWO of each!
