Doc Tashless the Wonder-GP – wonderful.

Referral letter for The Professor – being written (I’m to collect it next week). Doc Tashless also cheerfully volunteered to print out and include every test result he could find before I even asked him, so I wouldn’t have to ‘do anything twice’. See point above.

Toe – Officially Broken. Doc Tashless gave it a cursory and decidedly blasé glance, told me to strap it to its neighbour, and pointed out toes, eh, they get better eventually.

Strapping the toe – Good idea. Makes limping much easier.

Work – Being angelic about the toe thing. They even sent me home early so I ‘could get a seat on the bus’.

Social life – I am going to the theatre tomorrow, which surprised me. My friend E sprang this on me over lunch.

Husband – bought me ice-cream, declared I should definitely go to the theatre as I needed a treat after the spoiled weekend, is doing all the shopping and cleaning and laundry, and only once said wistfully that he missed my cooking as he was getting a little bored of his own kitchen repertoire. Actually, he’s not a husband, is he? He’s a wife.

Cycle – buggered if I know. Temperature very high, fertile ‘signs’ still in evidence this morning, Satsuma very quiet. *Throws up her hands*

    hooray for doc tashless and bugger about the toe. i broke MY sodding toe two summers ago, and sodding was much impeded. also: it is AMAZING how much a little thing like that hurts. though why that’s amazing, given how a little cervix can hurt, i don’t know.

    hooray for husband, too. having a wife is vastly underrated.

    Could you send your doctor over here, please? All the GPs I’ve encountered are useless or worse, and yours sounds so wonderful…

    Ouch. I’m glad you have a nice wife to take care of you!

    I’m so glad you finally got an appointment. It sucks that money talks so loudly, but meh. That’s just how healthcare goes.

    I am sending Doc Tashless half a cow as a token of my appreciation…

    Go Doc Tashless! With my glass half empty hat on I bet Prof Lady will do all tests again on basis that her lab drones are better thanDoc T’s lab drones. Grr. Hope limping improves speedily.

    I’m imagining a surprised kind of relief, bordering on a little happy maybe?
    I’m with you on the buggered cycle thing. Major design flaw anyway

    Ah, things are moving! This is good.

    Hmm. It would be educational for JB good to read that bit about H. How can I casually arrange that, I wonder?
