Alaska, Anyone? My New Doctor.
Today was the appointment with my new doctor. Even though I had submitted for my records to be transferred there last week, they had not arrived. The nurse had a couple of learners watching as she took my BP: OK, pulse: OK, and my temp, which was below nornal.
Dr. Shee was just as he had been described to me. Didn’t rush, and treated me like he was really interested. He had a little laptop, and was making notes on it.
Without my records, his hands were somewhat tied, but he prescribed what he called a ‘steroid pack’, a nasal spray, antibiotics, and a new nitroglycerin. He looked at some moles, and said they were ok. He has left an order at the desk where I can get a cholesterol blood test next time that I am in that town, before coffee. That will have to be a deliberate fasting on my part! Coffee goes with emails, first thing in the morning!
I stopped at Lowes to get another stick of rigid door insulation for my back door, and some rollers that might fit Ray’s patio door. Then off to Krogers. I hung around the store for 45 minutes while I waited for my prescriptions, and picked up a few bargains of meat, salmon, and frozen vegetables.

The sun was shining, but even though it wasn't really cold it felt like it, as there was a strong wind.
So that was just about the whole day!
