A long time ago, when one of my cousins first started working, her mother (my mother's oldest sister) advised her to get 15 different outfits for the office, one for each work day for three weeks. After the end of the 3rd week, cousin would start with outfit #1, again. According to aunt, by that time, people would have forgotten what she wore that 1st week and it would appear she had a new outfit every day! Technically, I have more than 15 outfits, but, lately, I've been wearing some of the same items way more frequently than once every three weeks!
Today, I had a follow-up appointment with the Physician Assistant to check my blood pressure. I had assumed that if my pressure had been deemed acceptable, then, I'd get my clearance for dental work. The appointment itself went well enough - my pressure was good, blood sugar was good, weight was OK, etc. The PA had received the abdominal ultra sound results, too, and confirmed that there was no evidence of blood flow to the cyst (which apparently is an indication it is not cancerous), but, since she knew I was still anxious about it, she said she will put in a referral for a biopsy as well for further analysis. I appreciate that very much. However, with all this going back and forth to test the blood pressure, it seems they overlooked the initial reason for the visits - the medical clearance! Apparently, I still need to be seen for a "pre-op" consultation by the medical doctor for that! So, I made an appt. for Monday afternoon, which was the earliest they had available. Hopefully, the tooth won't bother me before I get the clearance!
After my appointment, I went to the office and spent the afternoon working on my projects. I felt tired after I came home, and almost fell asleep in my chair, but I didn't take a nap. I had a cup of coffee, instead, returned an aunt's phone calls, chatted with a friend who called, responded to blog comments, and just took it easy.
I received a lovely card from my cousin who visited from Australia in the mail today:

I called about the jury duty, this evening, and was told I don't need to come in tomorrow. Now I am almost positive I'll be called in on Friday!
Today, I am grateful for:
- The availability of medical services
- The blood pressure and other readings were good
- There was parking validation available today (they were out of validation stickers the last time I was there)
- I don't have to report for jury duty in person tomorrow
- Family and friends keeping in contact
How was your Wednesday? Did you have a good day?
