It was supposed to be Lab Thursday

It’s September 3rd, 2020 and then high today is 79, but this Saturday, Sunday and Monday will make up for this nice Thursday, they are all supposed to feel like over 90. The weather is just whacky right now cuz that Tuesday after it feeling like 90 its supposed to have a high 0f 59. Go figure.


I went to my lab appointment at 7:40am only to find out that I was removed from the schedule for today. Someone made a mistake. Anyhow, had to wait 20 minutes for Kristel to arrive and write orders. Then I had my blood drawn, and my hemoglobin was down (no surprise there) and my platelets are up (surprising me, not Teresa). Oh well, that just means blood next week and no platelets.


I then verified my 8:00 labs next week, and my 8:20 appointment with Dr. Wehbe. Those were in the system. So, those should go off without a hitch. Dr. Wehbe will write the blood for me (well, one of his nurses will). I wonder if it will be 1 or 2 bags.


Sometime in the near future we will be making the dreaded trip to Mayo. Dr. Alkhateeb is on travel this week, so he will want next week. But that is when my mom and brother are going to be here. Mom and brother visit takes precedence over a trip to Mayo.


Mom and Jim fly in Sunday evening and fly out Tuesday evening. Again, not a long visit, but it will be good to see them, it has been too long.


Still not up to reading, still not up to Dungeons and Dragons, still not up to much of anything. I’m trying not to nap as much as I have been, cuz its messing up my night sleep. Night sleep is very important.


I’m getting referred to a pain clinic, one affiliated with MercyOne. I don’t have to go back to the doctor I don’t really like. I just need pain meds stronger than what I have. Lortab are pansy pills. I don’t want to get stoned, I just don’t want to be in a lot of knee pain. I’m sure Dr. Wehbe would write me a stronger med, but it’s not his job so I will wait to get in to a pain specialist.
