I must be getting old............

I had to go to the hospital on Saturday morning to have a bone scan on my hand, as when I had the nerve testing done on Thursday of last week, they didn't find any trapped nerves, which is good.  So Dr. T. suggested I get a bone scan.  I made the appointment and arrived at the hospital bright and early on the Saturday morning.

I checked in with the receptionist and she looks at the form and sees that Dr. T. gave me the referral.  She says, isn't he gorgeous, and some other gushing things about him.  I reply, yes he's very nice, but can't say much because my husband is sitting there.  She nods at that and we finish the registration.

I am then called through to start the test and the nurse looks at my paperwork and sees that Dr. T. is my doctor and again starts gushing about him.  I reply, yes he's a sweetheart.  Now here's the getting old thing.  I haven't a clue what the doctor looked like, seriously.  I was more concerned about what was wrong with my hands than what he looked like!!!!!  While I was having my first test done I was wracking my brain trying to remember the bloody doctor!!!!  Oh well must be very happy with the husband I have!!!

Anyhow, due to it being  quiet on Saturday, I not only got my hands scanned, I had a full body scan, my hips rescanned and my feet rescanned.  I go to see the hand surgeon on January 3rd to talk to her about what the test results show.  

My prescription changed on my glasses, I have gone from a 1.5 to a 1.75.  Got my new lenses and can't see a bloody thing!!!!  I guess I'll just have to suffer it until my eyes get used to the new lenses, so please forgive any typos, everything is blurred...........or am I just getting old?????

I to have changed from a 1.5 to a 1.75, hardly noticed the difference though so didn't have blurred vision like you. Double check that it is actually 1.75 lenses in there as it shouldn't be very noticeable normally.

What did the Dr. say when you told him there was a noticeable change in vision? Glasses can always be changed or returned. Bess

Well, if you've only seen the Dr without your glasses on no wonder you don't remember him...probably just a blur!

Don't worry Gill, you're not getting old. It happens to me often that I'm with a friend and we go past a man and my friend will say 'Oh my gosh, did you see how gorgeous that guy was?' and I haven't noticed a thing. I'm just perfectly happy with my Sweetheart so I tend to not notice other men...unless they look like my Sweetheart lol

I would guess the nurse has a bit of a crush on the doctor!
I think if I were you I'd get them to re check your prescription if you are having problems adjusting.I really need some new glasses but I know they will have to be much stronger.

Sounds like you have George Clooney at your surgery. Sadly, nothing along those lines here! Hope they manage to sort your hand out.

Funny about them thinking the dr is so good looking and you had not noticed!

Hope you get used to your glasses...if you don't soon, take them back. One time Roger really had problems with a pair of glasses...did not think about going back. I can't remember if it was when he went to get new glasses, or if he was in there for something else, but they looked at his lenses and they had been ground wrong.
