After five weeks and her back not getting any better, she finally opted to go see a doctor. I referred her to my nurse practitioner. And still being the most awesome daughter on the planet, I picked her up from work and drove her there.
Funny how things are when you haven't been to see a doctor for a while. They will ply on all these routine tests that you should be getting, but haven't. Mom went in with a sore back, and came out with not only a prescription for pain meds, but also an appointments for a mammy-gram, MRI's for neck and shoulder, and a colonoscopy to be completed in the near future.
And I did what any most awesome daughter on the planet would do...I laughed sadistically.
After the doctor, or rather nurse, visit, we stopped in Riverside at some Chinese place for lunch. This place was next to a pet store, and that isn't usually a good thing. The place was busy though, and the food not bad, even if it had been Fluffy with the meaty hind leg. I meowed a couple times during lunch...no one noticed.
I dropped Mom off at her office and began the soggy drive home. As an afterthought, I stopped by the Den of Iniquity and Cause of Moral Decay for a few other items for my costume. I haven't found replacement boots yet, but I've got a little over a week to think of something. Paul (ND!) is dying to know what my costume is. I told him he'd have to go to the Blogger Halloween Party to find out, but he claims he has to work.
Funny how he has to work whenever date opportunities present themselves.
Now, I am home. The rain is coming down like a cow pissing on a flat rock. Nothing to do but take a nap. Just a little one.
That sesame kitten is not sitting well on my stomach.
