At my last fill appointment, on 6/4, it was kind of a comedy of errors when it came time to schedule my next fill (my doctor requires 3 weeks between fills):
Scheduler (S): What about the week of 6/25?
Me (M): I'm going to be out of town that week. What about the week of 7/2?
S: All of our doctors are going to be out at a conference that week. What about the week of 7/9?
M: I'm going to be out of town that week. *sigh* I guess it will have to be the week of 7/16.
S: Okay, 7/16. I'm going to put you on the waiting list for the week of 6/25, just in case.
Cue me being kind of apprehensive, because I've been getting pretty hungry between meals lately (at about the 3 hour mark). But, I was resigned to having to wait 6 weeks for my fill (by the way, I don't know how those of you who have to wait 6 weeks after surgery for your first fill manage it! I was so hungry two weeks after my surgery that I could have eaten a horse and a hippo.). Until yesterday:
S: Hi, I have you on the list for a cancellation. We've got an opening Saturday morning at 9:30...
M: SOLD! Also, I love you.
So tomorrow morning at 9:30 sharp, I will be at the doctor's office. I will follow that with a stop at the movies to see Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. And then I will spend the afternoon floating in the pool.
Weekend, thank god you're only 6 hours away...
