Odds & Ends
Snoop Dogg....my new Grand Dog. He's 3 1/2 months old and weighs 3 1/2 pounds. He's a tiny bundle of energy, but slept on a pillow beside me after exploring my house for the first time.
My previous doctor moved her office after I became her patient and an appointment to see her became a forty mile round trip instead of twelve. After doing that for 2-3 years, I decided to change doctors so that I could see someone in the same practice as mr. kenju, which is a short 5 miles away. This morning was my first appointment with the new doc and I am very pleased that I made the switch. She's personable, pretty, professional and she speaks loudly enough for me to hear her easily. My former doctor was wonderful, but she spoke so quietly that I had to ask her to repeat nearly everything she said unless she was looking right at me when she spoke - and she knew I had a hearing problem.
The best thing about this switch is that instead of seeing the doc every four months (as with the previous doctor), I will only have to go in every six months - unless there are big changes in my health. I love that! She said I was the perfect patient - basically healthy and up-to-date in all my tests and shots. At my age, that's high praise, I think.
