Appointment with rheumatologist yesterday.
Meeting a new doctor it is always important to me
that you feel a bond with one another.
I was not disappointed.
The young woman with the flawless creamy skin
and beautiful long black curly hair opened the
door to the examining room and greeted me
with a big smile. Immediately I liked her and it
seems all my new doctors are the age of my children.
Outcome - examination and a number of blood samples.
So, hopefully next week I will have an answer if
Sjogren's is visiting me in some new ways.
I was told to stop prednisone and only had one more pill and to
rest (I really do not know what this is)
and a reminder that stress plays a big part in our health matters.
I did not take the rural transportation.
The day would have been much longer then 8 to 3.
On the way home I drove through one of my favorite old neighborhoods.
German Town. Before building in the big city and returning to the country
I use to walk the streets in this neighborhood and wonder if I would like this
lifestyle. Then maybe yes but with the massive building surrounding it
going on - the answer is now "no".
Stopped at the small hot dog place and
drink I have found no where else. The youthful owner is from Chicago area.
So nice to walk in and my name called out by this young owner.
I remember when he opened and I was one of his first customers.
He still remembers me even though my visits are not often anymore.
I might add why I think he remembers me. I ask the young woman with
the baseball cap on as she took my order
if the owner was her father? Oh my they could not
stop laughing as he was her fiance. He said I made her day....
I shake my head as a giant condominium complex covering a large
area is being built by out of state investors.
Looks like a hundred units. Street was filled with equipment
in this small quaint neighborhood of a lot of small unique homes and
some large very old homes.
The thought comes to mind - how could they do this ?
There was a time a few years ago I knew what was going on in
the building world of this surrounding area.
Not anymore and I wonder with the economy as it is - how will this many
units rent. But then it is very near the downtown business area
and maybe young and older professionals want these condos.
As I walked down the brick sidewalk to my car I noticed the
home I was parked in front of and the unusual tree beside the
home - very old with gray bark.
I wonder what type of tree it is?
Just did some research - Is it a Beech tree?
