After a long wait and quite a bit of knitting in the waiting room, the thorn is gone. I absolutely love the guy that I see at the walk in clinic or I’d never subject myself to the long wait at that clinic but I’d actually wait all day just to get to see him. Vince and I have given up our regular doctors and see this guy for everything. A friend works there and she’s the one who drew about 7 pints of blood (not really but it seemed like it). I think she kept drawing blood til we finished our conversation! There really were 7 or 8 tubes of blood so I’m hoping I lost another pound.
It took forever to get that piece of thorn out. He really dug around and picked for about 20 minutes. I kept apologizing for taking up so much time. Then he froze a suspicious mole so between the foot and the mole on my arm, I think I should be able to prop my feet up and knit for the next 3 or 4 days, don’t you think? Good . . I’ll tell Vince you said it’s ok.
The good news is that the big clinic associated with the hospital can draw blood to test my levels for the alpha gal allergy so I have my orders for that and can run by and get that test done in the next few days.
As soon as my blood test results are posted on my medical profile, I’ll let you know how things have changed, hopefully for the better.
