Doctor Doctor

Had rather a busy week – started off with my annual visit to my lady doctor (see previous post) on Monday. 

Monday was also a rather hectic day.  It started off with leaving home for the morning school run at the same time as usual and finding the traffic to be backed-up getting out of our suburb.  As I was late getting out our suburb, I was running late to get son no 3 and 4 to school and of course my appointment with my lady doctor was at 8am.

Son no 4 kept complaining about a stomach ache in the car – which he has been complaining about on an off for about a month now.  So on our way to school I thought sod it – he can have the day off and I will take him to see the doc instead and deal with the stomach issue.
Got son no 3 to school 45 minutes late and ended up at my lady doctor 30 minutes late for my appointment.   My blood pressure was 150/100 when he took it so that of course set off the usual blood pressure alarms – I now need to have my blood pressure taken often for the next 2 weeks to see if it is a problem (oh the joys of getting older!)

Eventually got home and made an appointment with our GP for son no 4 for later in the morning.  GP could not find anything wrong but ordered some tests.

Test have all come back clear so the cause of his stomach aches is still a mystery – the GP is treating it as IBS, even though he is not a stressed child at all but if all else fails, lets see if the IBS meds work….

My Mother-in-law who is now 72 had a hernia operation on Wednesday so that had me spending more time in hospitals and with doctors.

Hubby is doing the cleansing bit today drinking pico prep for the day.  He has to go and have some tests done tomorrow – various “stroscopies” in preparation for is surgical procedure in May.

Hubby has a weight problem and has subsequently been diagnosed a diabetic. He is now seeing an Endocrinologist and a specialist surgeon and they will be doing a gastric bypass in May which will sort out his weight and will sort out the diabetes.  I am really looking forward to this procedure.
