I consider a month not having to see a doctor a blessing.
My day is ruined when I have a doctor's appointment. I have to spend all morning, thinking about an afternoon appointment, not being really too much able to relax and do things I enjoy. I really hate it when I am having to go to an appointment.
When I am able to look at my calendar and see that for an entire month there are no days at all that are subject to going to visit my doctor. This is like a month that I can at least not have to worry about what they will find out about me the next time I pay the doctor a visit. For a month I can at least try to live as normally as possible.
Actually, I don't even like it when I have a forthcoming appointment at the doctor's office. It used to be I would visit my doctor only once a year but that was before I turned 50. Now they want to run all kinds of test on me and see me about once every 3 months, since I have turned 60. They may think it's okay to have a patient be a regular but for me it's more like visiting that place patients enter but never leave. It has begun to feel more and more like KINGDOM HOSPITAL, in a way. Well, I am reading a book called The Leisure Seeker. It is about a married couple traveling route 66, as her husband has onset dimentia and she has been diagnosed with cancer. She knows they both are dying but she decides to spend their last days together like when they were young, to travel in their mobile home and have a little vacation together and recall the earlier days of their lives. Her husband drives and she narrates the story as they travel. I think it is a book worth reading. My wife and I take turns reading aloud to each other from this book.
