On the Porch
Our time in Florida has certainly not been boring. Unfortunately the action has been of the golden years type. ( You know, when all of your gold goes to pay doctors, tests and medicine) We expected to spend two weeks in Florida checking in with our doctors and then flee the Florida heat. My husband’s first visit seemed innocuous, a routine eye exam. Then the doctor “saw” something which led to two tests being scheduled. Next came a trip to the orthopedic doctor for him to get a simple steroid shot. Yep, not simple. He needed an MRI. We followed this up with a visit to the primary care doctor for him to go over the results of the first two test results. Guess what? Another test is needed AND a specialist is the only one who can order it which requires setting up a new patient appointment. Have you ever tried to get a new patient appointment with a specialist? They are booked for weeks and some, months in advance. Our two-week visit is turning into three weeks and we are putting our foot down. Either the doctor schedules the next test ASAP or we are going back to North Carolina and enjoy fall.
i scrolled though some of my fall photos and here are a few.
In addition to all these doctor visits, the hot temperatures have triggered some ferocious lightning storms and it appears like another may be exploding soon.
On the positive side, it has been fun catching up with old friends, sneaking a pumpkin donut at Dunkin Donuts with my daughter and not to be overlooked, a much appreciated hair cut with my favorite hair stylist. I would tell you her name, but she is hard enough to get an appointment with as it is
I just thought of another plus for being in Florida in the fall. High-Speed-Internet. I am sure I have moaned about our internet speed in the mountains before. I am truly grateful to have internet up there but having fast internet is bliss when I am attempting to create graphics for Rebekah’s books. I made one today. If you take a look at the book titles, you won’t find one with a fall title. We go straight from summer to winter.
And now it appears we have a hurricane named Matthew that may or may not turn towards Florida. The positive side is I do enjoy a rainy day.
