The Merry Go Round Slows a Little
The waiting room was overflowing. No one seemed particularly sick. One person was sleeping over in the corner. Loud snoring finally had everyone giggling. The lady raised her head, looked around, tried to read her paper, and in no time was back to sleep. Quietly this time.
Big sign in the sign in area "PLEASE TURN ALL CELL PHONES OFF". Everyone reaching for the phones and the different ring tones announcing the phones were off as they walked into the waiting area. Why is there always a few that simply refuse to follow orders? We'd been there fifteen minutes, when one woman's phone rang. She fished it out of her purse and had a ten minute conversation with someone about what she was doing at the doctors.
So today was doctor day again. Was sent to radiology to take a pill and return tomorrow for xray. Was asked if he'd had any xrays in the last month. Why yes, he got an xray when we were at the ER for the kidney stone. We were sent back home and told to come back on the 19th to try again. A couple of weeks with no doctor's visits. Yay!!
