…after going to the Doctor’s yesterday. FYI he got to ride in the car but did not go inside. Apparently I’m a little under the weather again. My temperature was fine when I saw my new Rehab Doc (RMD3) and PT37 yesterday morning, but it was a little warm by the time I saw my PCP in the afternoon. Thankfully it was normal again by bedtime. My PCP, however, interrogated me on the nature of my illness from a couple of weeks ago:
PCP: Any trouble swallowing etc?
Me: I’ve noticed in the last couple of months that I might be a little harder to swallow.
PCP: If you are having trouble you definitely should go get it checked out.
Me: I know. I’m scheduling an appointment with my ENT but for a while I’ve been avoiding him like the plague.
*Note: Being an ENT is really an honorable profession – it’s just that I went through a 1.5 year “avoidance” phase since I don’t like the inevitable scoping to look at my vocal chords. I don’t think there’s any other way to do that so I’m over it now.
