So yesterday I learned several things:
1) My doctor’s nurse has to work on her small talk. After waiting for 30 minutes in the waiting room she brought us into the sonogram room. She began typing on the computer while I began shaking and breathing hard.
“So how’s the weather outside?”
Derek and I looked at her and thought, “Really, that ‘s the best you can come up with?”
Uh, it’s nice. Cool.
“Oh good. I’ve hated this weather lately. So depressing all this cold weather.”
Hmm…actually we’re under brush fire alerts since it’s so hot and from where we are sitting we have a different definition of depressing.
2) My doctor is a huge music fan. While sitting in the waiting room I heard the secretary bickering about seat availability, row c, and only 12 left. Apparently she was desperately trying to get one of the remaining 12 Diana Ross tickets for her concert in Dallas tonight. When our doctor came in she said she just had to have one of those tickets – it was a once in a lifetime experience and she had to be there. She was quite annoyed since the newspaper listed tickets from $60 – $120 but they were actually $360 for row C.
3) I’m urging my children to go into the medical field. Apparently $360 is really only a drop in the bucket for a once in a lifetime experience. Last year my doctor spent $2500 to see Prince in concert. With the amount of times I’m going to see her she will be able to tour with Prince.
4) There is no real change with the baby. We are still day by day and will be for however long this pregnancy lasts. But…we are still climbing a mountain and going to give it our best fight.
In tribute to my doctor and my theme song for the day let’s hear a little Diana
