My dr's office doesn't have a sense of humor

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

I called at about 4 PM to get my results - the dr I saw was off today, so the receptionist said she could call me tomorrow. I said, well could someone else look at the results, I'd really like to know if I'm going to die - she didn't laugh, I guess she thought I was serious. (I mean, really, who would seriously ASK that?????)

Anyhow, she had my regular dr look at the results, she called and said everything looks fine, but she wants to see me and take blood to run the liver function tests (which I thought seemed reasonable) - so I go back tomorrow.

I think I'm starting to feel old!

    Everytime I say something like that I realize I'm talking to someone with a terminal illness or who recently lost a family member and then I feel like crap so I try to control my jokes about dying. But, I really do think it's funny.
    Not the terminal illness part, but just being able to laugh about the uncertainty of life.

    Fingers crossed that your blood work is all normal!

    That is exactly the sort of thing I would have said. My DD sais nobody finds me funny. Despite which I have seen her laugh more than a few times at things I say. Geofrog you really do have a weird sense of humour. You made me laugh thats for sure. Dont think I would go as far as the "Shrine" though. Thats what I call really quiet company. You wont have to worry about them butting in on you when you are talking at any rate. Plus you are sure to win every argument.

    Nobody seems to have a sense of humor anymore. I use humor to deal with alot of things. Even when my husband passed away unexpectly I used humor to keep from breaking down. When I went to sit with him after he was pronounced dead I looked at my sister, who is also my boss, and told her she could take him off my dental insurance then. I thought my brother-in-law, who also is my boss, (I work in a small family owned pawn shop) was going to fall off his chair. Also when my children, who were 25 and 20 years old at the time (this happened 4 years ago) and I went to pick up his ashes I told them there was only one other way we could have taken him home and that was to have had him stuffed. My daughter turned and looked and me and said "MOTHER!!!) and my son, the redneck and proud of it that is it just starting laughing so hard. We were outside the funeral home at the time. When we got inside and the girl there asked my son if he would like to see what his dad's ashes looked like, he looked in the urn and said "Gee I didn't think Dad would look like that." That poor girl didn't know what to think. We did take him home and he set on my pool table for over a year. Now he's in my closet along with my dear departed Dino, my terri-poo and my cat, Mouse who both passed away after my husband. Their urns sit side by side on a shelf. My kids call it my "Shrine". Like I said, my whole family and I have a wonderful, yet sometimes morbid, sense of humor!!!
    Good for you!!! Good luck on the rest of your tests. Keep us posted.
