Limited blogging alert! Today is Debbie's big day with the doctors – the follow-up after six weeks (!) of no weight bearing on her knee. We're hoping she gets clearance to bear weight, so she can start hobbling around on her own (with a walker) and start physical therapy.
I had my first visit with our new GP yesterday. I liked her, rather a lot, actually. Great straightforward conversation, no punches pulled, no hesitation answering questions. For example, I asked her how one could tell the difference between ordinary age-related memory problems and Alzheimer's memory problems. She had a one word answer: “Autopsy.” I like this lady :) One thing I asked her about was some difficulty I've noted with my right shoulder in certain (not common) positions. She diagnosed it (in about 20 seconds) as a rotator cuff muscle problem and sentenced me to prescribed physical therapy, which she's confident will fix it. I start next Thursday.
