It was a flu shot. Just the regular one - they don't have the H1N1 (aka hamtrax) one at my primary care group. Had my regular follow-up. I need to look into checking my BP more often - it was fine today, but has been high at other times. That could just be from stress being at the doctor's office (gee, why would I be stressed?). So, I'll keep an eye out for low-priced home monitors. My primary care doc suggests I get the H1N1 if I can, so I guess I'll keep an eye out to see when/if it becomes easily available around here.
We talked about my rollator request. She offered to send me back to physical therapy for a new evaluation, which is apparently necessary for such things. I told her I'd wait until spring. Thinking about it, I don't think a rollator would do very well in the snow. Nor do I fancy trying to heave it onto a bus full of undergrads.
And it seems my basic method of pain relief is okay - NSAIDs (usually ibuprofen) plus an OTC proton pump inhibitor when necessary because my stomach hurts. Yay.
She also helped me get my pulmonary function test scheduled sooner. Pretty cool.
I managed to get several rows of k1,p1 ribbing done on the fingerless gloves I'm making up as I go along. Several older ladies were fascinated while we all waited for our flu shots.
The nurse who gave me a flu shot was wonderful. Very cheery. I made her laugh asking how many people come in a drop their pants. We wound up talking about race-relations of all things and it was wonderful. I barely noticed the shot.
