Noah and Dr. Pitchon today

Noah was very funny today at Dr. Pitchon’s…sometimes Noah was annoying ‘what did you come here for today–then stay on track!’

(I had a little weepy session at one point…I just boiled over in frustration being this sick right now…it’s like, I can’t believe I have such a serious infection right fucking now, I don’t need it…I’m under a lot of stress and this just isn’t a good time πŸ™„.)

Noah said I needed to save the weeping for a therapist…I think that amused Dr. Pitchon a little (other times I think he was annoying Dr. Pitchon, though Dr. Pitchon has a good poker face so it was hard to tell…maybe Noah was just annoying me πŸ™‚

Anyhow, while we were walking out, Noah made this big declaration,

(I just posted this on Facebook πŸ™‚

Noah: I wish we knew the name of the bacteria that’s infecting Mommy’s lymph node in her mouth, because I want to look it up.

Dr. Pitchon: Actually, we do. It’s called act-blah-blah-blah-blah.

[The blah is me–I can’t remember the name of it for life of me πŸ™‚

Noah: Um….do you know how to spell that? There’s no way I’m going to remember that one.

It was very funny…he definitely thinks like a doctor/scientist though πŸ™‚

The plan is IV Meropenam with oral Penicillin G 4 times a day (yikes!!) I’m going to have to set lots of alarms…he said it’s extremely important I stay on top of this…for like, six months!!!!!! AhhhπŸ™„πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œπŸ˜›

Dr. Pitchon agreed with you it’s important that the radiologist compare my ultrasound report from last week with the one from feb 29–he said they were being lazy (and I agreed πŸ™‚ I told him you were going to crack the whip on them…

Thanks again for everything…I really mean it.
