2 hours

I feel terrible. I am as sick as a dog right now. My throat feels like I have swallowed shards of glass. I am coughing constantly and if I were to run into Happy, Bashful, Dopey, Grumpy, Sleepy and Doc I could jump right in to complete the group (get it?).

So, I went to Urgent Care tonight to get some much needed drugs and when I walk in the door I see that there are only 2 seats available in entire waiting room.

"Um, how long is the wait?"

"2 hours."

"k. Buh bye."

The only worse then waiting in a waiting room when you are sick for TWO HOURS is knowing the whole time that the very first thing you are going to do after those TWO HOURS is stand on a scale to find out how much fatter your ass is now.

I left. I could not torture myself.

I have an endo appointment tomorrow (lovely, they do the scale thing too) and maybe he can give me some drugs after he asks, "So how's your diabetes?"


Send me some Calgon please

Aw. That is a lousy way to finish off christmas! I hope you feel better soon! Goodluck at the doctor's.

Dang! Good luck at the endo, and I hope you get something to have you back on your feet in no time.

Feel better. :)

I have that, too. Which is why I'm up at two-friggin'-thirty in the morning. If I lay down, I cough. So I'm sitting up. Hard to sleep if you're sitting up.

Feel better, man. Ask for the good drugs.

Sana Sana Colita de Rana! Yeah, it's me! Hope you feel better dude. Everyone over here is sick too . . . I'm hoping I don't get it! :p

OMG, you left because you didn't want to know how much you weighed!! If you weren't so sick, I'd let you know how much I'm laughing right now.

I hope you get well soon.

If it's any comfort, at least a sore throat will cause you to eat less!

Ahhh, George, I hope you feel better soon!

Vivian said...

George, so sorry your sick. I will say an extra prayer that you have a speedy recovery.

Major suckage man!

Hope you're feeling better!

And on the scale thing - you know why you're eating more! You quit smoking!! Which totally rocks.

Tackle one thing at a time. If you can quit smoking you can do anything.

Aw, sorry to hear you're sick :( It certainly isn't a good way to spend the holidays. I hope your endo can write you up an Rx for the good drugs and get you all fixed up.

Erica said...

Hope you are feeling better by now and that the scale at the endo's was kind (I swear my endo's office tampers with the darn thing) :0)

Minnesota Nice said...

Hah, they don't have a scale at my Urgent Care, and, if they did, I wouldn't get on it.
The thing I hate about waiting there is that you are amidst other sickies who are coughing and breating on you and giving you some other thing.
