Been out of town for a while trying to get some stuff done through the VA. Some time back I got a care package from them (A prep kit for a colonoscopy) I've never had one and don't care to, but I did drive to Alpine to get screened for one. When I got there the nurse handed me a form to fill out and a report from a stool sample. I asked her about the report and told her it wasn't mine because I hadn't had one. She said "You didn't?" As near as I could tell the report was from someone with health bowels (which mine aren't) Shortly after that the doctor comes in and says there is nothing she can do for me? That sounded good to me so I split. Sure glad I didn't have to drink all that crap in the prep kit!
Next appointment was for blood at Fort Stockton and they took four or five vials of that. Next appointment was in Odessa to get the results of the blood work. Damn! I must be a 65 year old super human because all of the tests came out perfect. That or the samples got mixed up with some really healthy young person? Sort of makes me wonder!!! I had Pneumonia at the time of the Odessa visit and fortunately got some antibiotics prescribed and was sent to Big Spring to the hospital for x-rays and to pickup the med the next day. They had already sent it down here and I had another appointment in Odessa 3 days later so went without those antibiotics for three more days before I got back here to take them. They sent me a brand new nebulizer for my COPD, but no medication for it so its basically useless as is. I guess I could buy a bottle of Everclear to puff through it to see if that's all its cracked up to be. Naw... Guess I'll stay on the wagon.
Psyc test? Well I think the psychiatrist decided that I'm only partially crazy and not all the way yet. Terlingua will do that to you ya know.
The weather is finally cooling off down here so if I can get over the pneumonia before long and get the motivation then I'll get back to work on the cabin. Looks like it may be next spring before I'll be able to move in it though.
