I got up early to polish off my Monday morning work chores. Then hit the shower. Then got dressed and now I'm about 15 minutes too early to leave for the clinic. Stressing over this thing kept me awake a long time last night. For so long my medical theory has been that if I don't know about a potential medical issue, it won't hurt me. So I have judiciously steered clear of as many medical tests as possible.

I don't have a desire to live forever and am already too old to die young. I'm ready whenever. I just don't want to crawl through a medial morass of crap. Said medical morass can easily start with these silly tests. Hence the stress which is stupid. I should have just told the cute doctor, no. I've done it before an I don't know why I didn't this time but since I didn't, I should just bite the bullet and let it go. I'm not clear why I can't or won't. In 2 hours it will be a done deal anyway and whatever they find, they find.

As I suspected, unless the cute ultrasound guy was lying, all is fine - no sign of nuthin' and I didn't ask, he volunteered. It took less than 20 minutes. Including the 5 he had me do on the treadmill. Blood pressure before and blood pressure after. "Passed with flying colors" is what he said.

He asked about why I was there and I explained the muscle cramps and the medication that I thought was causing them and that the doctors thought I was wrong and he said "Usually, the patient knows best".

So... onward and upward. I have to go back to the clinic this week or next to get another inhaler but no more doctors or tests scheduled until March 9! That's nearly 4 whole weeks! Nice. Very nice.

This week I have neither house cleaner or chef days - the week is all mine. Also nice. And, whew.

Oh and I forgot to suck on my rescue inhaler before I left for the click and only realized it when I did two flights of stairs and was not out of breath - at all! Score.
