I was planning to post yesterday but after 3 hours at the hospital (more on that in a minute) I had a pounding headache & didn't want to do anything but lay on the sofa.
I didn't have much change with my weight this week. I'm down 0.2. I'll take it but I was hoping for more. I ran Sunday & Wednesday. Wednesday was a good bit slower than I've been running but it was really humid. Today will be my second Yoglates class this week. This is about the third week in a row that I've gone twice instead of 3 times but it's just how things worked out.
So, back to the hospital. Last week I mentioned that I went for my mammogram. Because of stupid insurance I just had a screening mammo. That's a total waste of time for me because I have "extremely dense breast tissue" so it's hard for them to see. They called & wanted me to come in for a diagnostic. Fine. I was able to schedule it for yesterday on the same day as my yearly exam. Let's just say the hospital wasn't on the top of its game yesterday. There was a lot of sitting around & waiting. Once I had the mammogram I had an ultrasound because they wanted to look at an area more closely. Lovely. More sitting & waiting. Well, they didn't get to me before it was time for my other appt. I went next door had that appt. & went back & waited again. Finally I had the ultrasound. There's nothing suspicious, just some Fibroadenomas which will be watched so that means another ultrasound in 6 months.
During all of this sitting I had time to observe since the book I had downloaded on my Nook wasn't there (annoyed). I discovered that a couple of people felt the need to bring an entourage with them to their mammogram. I can't figure out what the reason would be. It wasn't just like one or two people & maybe they were stopping in on their way somewhere else. It was like 5 or 6 people. It was weird.
One of the many times I was waiting a hospital worker looked at the sign in sheet & called "Mr. Blanchard". She was talking about me. Now this may not seem odd to some of you but I was at Woman's Hospital & true to their name, THEY ONLY SERVICE WOMEN!!!!
Once I finally got out of that place I decided to reward myself so I stopped at Shoe Station. I'd been their earlier in the week buying our niece a birthday gift & I saw some flip flops I wanted but didn't buy. Well, I stopped at a different location because it was more convenient & they didn't have them. I was seriously bummed. I ended up just stopping at Starbucks & getting an iced green tea. It was better than nothing but I really want those shoes.
Then I had to drive home in a monsoon but I was happy that we got lots & lots of rain at our house. I know my flowers are happy.
