Everyone's a winner?

I take some kind of pride in stumping a doctor, I'm not certain why.

When I visited this woman today, a friend's doctor who came recommended to me (and was a dead ringer for Dr. Ruth), I just wanted her to give me a fat horse pill that would stop all my bloody loogies once and for all, but she was not able to. She just put her flashlight down my throat and saw blood. No newsflash there. As for where it's coming from, she hasn't the foggiest.

I would say I felt like I won in that situation then, except for the following: a) I still have to regularly swallow blood until tomorrow, when I see an Ears-Nose-Throat specialist about the same thing and b) Before I left, I had to drop my pants, turn my head and cough.

Clearly, she was just trying to prove that she had the upper hand.

I see an ENT all the time. You, Sherpa, and I can be triplets. Sorry to hear about the blood though. Sounds kind of scary.

Sounds like a fitting welcome back to America.

Update: I'm doing better, methinks, even though it feels like these antibiotics are throwing me for a real loop. They're not supposed to do that, right?

dainon-depends on the kind of loop..

Sara-I'm pretty sure you, dainon and I may already be triplets.
