Say ahhhh

This cold has really kicked my ass. I went to the doctor today and left with the following (in no particular order):

Cough medicine with codeine to help me sleep (took it an hour ago and I'm coughing my head off and feel WIDE awake)
Antibiotics for my sinus infection AND bronchitis
Appointment for my mammogram (40 t minus 1 month and 8 days)
Phone number to schedule skin cancer screening
Directions for fasting before blood work
and the number to the OB-GYN department for a pap smear.

Here I thought I was just sick. I've now got enough medical maintenance to keep myself busy for the next 3 weeks!

Let's call 2009 the year of the co-pay shall we?


  1. Ha! Well, it's done at least, right?

    This reminds me...I need to schedule my mammogram. Got the referral but keep forgetting to schedule it. Except of course for late at night when I can't call!

    Glad you're feeling better!

  2. HM - I'll remind you! LOLOL :)

    Ok Kelly...here's a secret...DELSYM cough syrup (only 1 tsp) tastes decent...seems to really work! If that doesn't work, call the doc back and ask for Valium. Tell him if this has to work its course, you want to be happy while it's happening! - Worked for me!

    Feel better soon, we miss you!

  3. Oh my goodness. Thank goodness for insurance!

  4. ok headless, on your mark, get set...GO make that appointment, I will get mine, we will blog about the experience and post them on the same day? Deal?

    Thanks for the tips Steph!

    and Kelli- HELL YEAH thank God for insurance!!!
