Sue informs me that the doctor's office called and wants me to call back.
When I do, I am informed that I am due for a tetanus shot. Who knew?
I am also informed that it is time to have some blood work done. Who knew?
"Can you go to the lab soon if we fax the requisition to the lab?"
"Good. So now we can schedule an appointment in two weeks for your shot and the blood work report."
This is the way that it goes now. Now that I am a senior, they keep good track of me.
In the fall, they called to send me for a bone density test. Sue too, as well as a mammogram.
They also had Sue down for a pneumonia shot but not me. "He's not due yet, Sue. Just you."
Also in the fall for both of us: "Please come in for your flu shot."
With the exception of my bout with shingles in the summer, I seldom seem to have much need to see the doctor apart from showing up for my shots, but she does look out for me.
I like that. I like her looking out for me.
This is Canada where we suffer from abominable government controlled and funded health care. Such a burden.
