Ongoing Saga...

Okay, so I went back to the doctor last night because my throat was clearly not getting better. The doctor this time was pretty young and quite attractive. I think he was probably about my age since he had about as much gray as I do, but I'm terrible at judging age. He seemed younger than me, and I wanted to ask him how old he was but that just seemed... wrong. In the company of very attractive guys sometimes the speech center in my brain turns to mush and my tongue gets tied in knots so that I have trouble finding the words to say what I'm thinking. And I didn't want to sound rude by just blurting out, 'hey how old are you anyway?' So anyway, he looks at my throat and says, "Your uvula is blistered." Imagine the thought bubble over my head: Oh, but honey, my vulva's not blistered, you wanna check it? I obviously would not have actually said that. LOL

He prescribed a new, broader spectrum antibiotic and said that they would give me a cortisone shot to help with the swelling and inflammation to make me more comfortable. I asked where they would give the shot and he said in the hip. Oh joy, but I was thinking that it would be okay for him to see me bent bare-bottomed over the exam table. Unfortunately, he was spared that sight since the nurse gave the shot. Well, he wouldn't have given me a second look if he wasn't getting paid to, so I shouldn't have imagined that he'd want to take a peek at my nekkid butt. The nurse said that the medicine was thick, which means that it might burn a lot going in. I took a deep breath expecting a bad sting, but it didn't hurt at all. Some nurses are really good at giving painless shots. So I pulled up my pants and got my stuff and left. Dr. Hottie said 'bye and hope you feel better soon.' I just said, "Thanks." But you can imagine what I was thinking....

Oh man, there's nothing like a hottie Dr.
I'm probably a bit older than you, so now the Dr's seem so young!

I must be at the wrong blog! Yesterday there was a post that included a link to a lady's private parts, but today there's talk about hot, young male doctors. I'm not that open-minded. lol

Rae Ann said...

sierrabella, that's the main reason I wanted to know how old he was, to see if I should be feeling old. lol

dh, sorry! I guess the reference to my nekked butt bent over the exam table didn't offset the reference to a hot doctor. LOL

Yeah, I once went to ER with (my first) gout flair up. The doctor was a this absolutely drop-dead gorgeous woman...looked younger than me! If my wife hadn't been there the whole time I'd have probably made an ass out of myself...and I couldn've blamed it all on the pain!! Truth is she (the doc) was probably thinking, "stupid guy, eats too damned much meet and look at that gut!" So I guess it's just as well I'm married!

Oh. I so know what you mean. Ugh. My husband got his gall bladder removed today and his surgeon was hot. He called me into a private meeting room to discuss how the procedure went and I could barely keep my mind straight. I sounded like a fricking idiot. Oh well.

Speaking of hot male doctors...I am so hooked on Grey's Anatomy and so ashamed of it. It is my guilty pleasure.

word ver: dqutynts...da cutie nuts???

My mom recently had her shoulder operated on, she told me her doctor was "young and hansome". Now her version of handsome and mine are usually very different, but when he spoke to me right after her surgery I had trouble paying attention after "she's doing fine". LOL And to top it off, young meant about my age instead of 40ish.

Now, this hot doctor of yours... is he a general practitioner? I kinda need a new one. hehe.

My doctor is great but he isn't really a hottie. Way to conservative. I kinda like a bad boy or at least one that isn't horrified at everything. He is kinda cute but way too wimpy.

Mike said...

Acknowledging the docs 'hotness' seems to be a sign you're on the mend....lol

Rae Ann said...

madman, you bad boy! LOL

mr g, are you sure we're not related? You sound just like me! lol

kristi, I hope your hubby is okay. But yeah, I hate that not being able to speak thing. It's embarrassing. I haven't watched that show. I'd probably get hooked too.

kat, no wonder those surgeons have such power complexes. I emailed you some info on that dr's office, etc.

condoleesa, there's nothing worse than a wimpy doctor. Well, except maybe those surgeons with the God complex.

mike, yeah, I think I'm slowly getting better. Thanks!

So Sorry you are having so much trouble with your throat. I do wish for you to get well soon.

I would much rather have a good lookin doctor than an ugly one...anyday. (LOL)

Hopefully that shot will help....my phobia of needles...would have added to the drama of this post however. YUCK....Take care of yourself.

Oh yeah, thanks tons for your comment yesterday. Today I was forced to put my NAP post on hold to retaliate due to previous comments.
