Overall a good weekend. But Friday I had more nose bleeding and did the math — Friday was the 6th day so maybe I should see a medical type? I tried super hard to ignore that thought I had a ton to do since we were having the kids for dinner the next night. But I finally gave into common sense and went to Urgent Care, which isn’t ideal but my only choice since my doctor was out until the next week and I couldn’t get an appointment to see him until the following week (I made the appointment, just in case). I saw an over-worked P.A. (Physicians Assistant) probably got the diagnosis right in the 43 second visit. And what was the diagnosis? The left side of my nose is a mess and I’m definitely going on antibiotics. He never looked in the right side of my nose or anywhere else because the medical care system does not have time for that kind of nonsense. Um, did that sound sarcastic? Anyhow, he said more than that, but that was the gist of it. The thing that really surprised me is he wanted me to use Afrin for three days to stop the bleeding. That actually helped, although I’m cutting the time shorter than three days. The good news is that I don’t appear sick with a virus. One of the reasons I made myself go is that I don’t want to get anyone sick if I have a virus.
The rest of Friday was a blur of errands and prep. Saturday with the kids was really nice. The six of us had a good time and Maggie soaked up all the attention. One thing we’ve been trying to do is agree on a family vacation — it’s worse than wrangling feral cats. It turns out that we raised boys with opinions, who married girls with opinions and Wizard and I have opinions. All we need to do is get everyone to have the same opinion at the same time. So…that’s up in the air At one point my daughter-in-law asked me if I’d go parasailing despite having some fear of heights. Would I? It’s a good question. I have never thought of trying it so that question caught me by surprise.
Sunday Wizard went racing, and Maggie and I did normal stuff, nothing really exciting.
That was my weekend, how was yours?
