Ok, I hope this isn't too personal. Yesterday I had a doctor's appointment. You know...the woman kind. It's been two years since my last pap test...I know, I know...not too smart of me. I decided to try somewhere different...a medical practice with mostly female physicians. Anyway, the doctor I saw was very nice. I was examined. And, no pap test was done. What?! Why not? Well, the doctor told me that since my last pap test was normal two years ago...I was okay to wait another year before having one done. She said to me, "is that okay?" And I said, "sure!" The problem is, it wasn't okay with me. I went in to get a pap test and left without getting one. Plus, it was my first time at this practice...shouldn't I have had a more thorough, more complete exam? Instead, she took my word that my last exam was normal and two years ago. I guess I'm most frustrated with myself. Why can't I ever stand up for myself? Instead, I just nod and agree. I will just have to work on being more assertive. I've always gone for a yearly pap...this was the first time I've ever been told you can go three years between pap tests. Have you ever heard this before?
On a more postive note....Brady and I enjoyed some time together on Monday. We went to the park and fed the ducks and had a picnic lunch. He really wanted to just go play tennis Monday morning....but since there are so many other things to do in life...I told him we had to go to the park first before going to play tennis! He loves feeding the ducks...so once he was there, he was fine. We ended up staying two hours. (And then, we headed to the tennis court for two hours.)
We're going away this weekend...same place we went last year!
So, I will catch up with all of you next week!
Have a good one!
