Ever have one of those periods of time when you don’t know whether to laugh or cry? Not fun, I know!
I had an appointment to see my doctor this morning for my usual blood pressure check and to see if my heart was still beating. BP was good; ticker still ticking. But this appointment was totally different from the ones I’ve had with her over the last 27 years; it was to be my last.
The foxy lady turned 65 years old while my back was turned and she is retiring from practice the first of March, 2014! I am so happy for her! She wants to travel and see all the things she has missed. Yea, laugh, laugh!
But wait a minute! That leaves me without my trusted pal and physician! She can’t leave! Boo, sob, sob!
But not to worry! She has set me up with a brand new physician (looks like a teenager) who has her office with another female physician in the professional building at my favorite hospital on the west side and only a five minute drive from my home! Yea, laugh, laugh!
Dr. “T” and I said our good-byes since my next appointment is not due to be scheduled until April, 2014 and she will be “on the road” by then. We thanked and wished each other the best with a huge, “I don’t want to let you go” hug.
Crap, I hate mixed emotions!
