I had my annual physical this morning. When I made the appointment, I thought snagging the first of the day was smart. 7:30. In/out, no traffic/no waiting. Er... didn't quite think it through.

My cute doctor likes to tweak me (his term which I love). And that involves changing prescriptions which involve a trip to the pharmacy which doesn't open until 9 and doesn't get its shit together until 9:30. But, what.ev.er.

My first savings of the day was no-copay. My insurance now lets me slide into an annual check up for freebie. Nice.

I lost 12 pounds (swimming), my blood pressure is fine, my glucose is fine, everything is fine except I failed the urine test. I knew it was possible - instead of not a pot to piss in, I had no piss for the pot. So I had to retake the test and I'm not sure I did much better today. I can't produce on demand, it turns out.

I do have elevated levels of that thing that causes gout which totally explains why I've had so many flareups. One option is a prophylactic drug but I hate that options and so does my cute doctor so he's tweaking other stuff.

He's eliminating two drugs and trying a new one. I don't know what my body will think but my wallet totally LOVES this idea. The new drug cost me $0. I can't quite figure out why since my insurance has a copay for all drugs, even generic but the pharmacy charged me $0 and that's what I paid. Nice.

He wants to see me in 2 weeks. So I left there, went and peed in a cup and then went on to the pharmacy. I had him send the prescription to Bartell's which is a proper drug store rather than the chemist there in the building who always piss me off. I thought Bartell's opened at 7 or 8 and I knew the chemist didn't open til 9.

Off to Bartell's which does, indeed, open at 7. BUT... the pharmacy section doesn't open til 9. Sigh. Happily, I had my Kindle and that good book I'm reading. Got my stuff and came home where I know have work to do on my fun project so I need to get to it.

I am 4 bites away from eating a whole freakin' 10" pizza. I rarely have pizza because I can't get it delivered and even a small is too big for me (usually) so once in a while I just pizza pig out and tonight was the night.

After several days of little to no work, today both projects turned up with stuff to do. Wouldn't you know it. Since it was Friday and I knew I could finish one or both this weekend, I decided to go to Montrell's class any way.

Montrell was my first and still my best aqua exercise teacher. He got promoted to assistant manager at another pool recently and I have so missed his class. I found out he teaches a class there at 1:30 on Fridays and vowed to go. And today I did. I spied him as I entered the pool area and my plan was to sneak up behind him and say 'guess who?!'. But, two steps in, he spied me an yelled 'Susan!!!!' from the far side of the pool... it was fun and cute.

And it was a great class. Lost more people. Bigger class area (the whole pool, actually) and he was in top form. It only took me 20 minutes to get there and 30 minutes to get back - I'm going to do it every Friday that I can.

I passed my second urine test! I got the results electronically. Nice. Next up on the medical hit parade will be the cataract surgery. Tomorrow I stop taking my aspirin a day. Then the following Saturday, I start with the pre-op eyedrops.

---

Tomorrow, there will be swimming and breakfast - not sure where yet - and after that, I have no plans. I have some work left over but probably not more than about 4 or 5 hours. Maybe I'll just come on home and get that done.

The Mariners just lost to the Yankees so I have the evening off. I'm looking forward to some TiVo clean up and bear knitting.
