It is cold outside! 37 degrees right now and windy with snow flurries. What happened to the 60 and 70 degree temps we were enjoying last week? Well, let it never be said that I let a chilly, breezy day keep me from going shopping.
First off to pick up my daughter then on to buy lotto tickets. The Mega Millions jackpot right now is $312 million and the Powerball jackpot is at 125 million. Then we went on to Sears to the final few days of the going out of business sale where I bought 3 pairs of shoes. Next to McDonalds for a fish sandwich and a diet coke, then to Dollar General to pick up a few things, finishing up at the gas station to fill up the car. Gas at most stations around town this morning is $3.65.9 a gallon.
By this time I have missed Y&R so I turn on the DVR to watch it. Then this thought came into my mind to call ITV-3 to ask about their triple play pricing for cable, internet and telephone. Wondering if by doing this I could finagle Comcast into giving me a better deal. Turns out I can get exactly the same cable lineup, with DVR and unlimited phone for $45 per month less. So now I have a bargaining chip to use with Comcast. We will see if it does anything. You know that old thing about not holding your breath? Believe me, I am not holding my breath.
Miraculous day yesterday. I was scheduled yesterday for a thyroid biopsy at a large hospital in Peoria. Large enough that they have valet parking and trolleys inside the hospital. Anyway back to the miracle. I was on the table and in the gown awaiting the doctor. I told the nurse that I had this same biopsy done in December of 2008. My primary doctor’s nurse had copies of my previous ultrasounds but had not forwarded them on to the Doctor in Radiology. Now getting back to the miracle. The nurse told the doctor this and he came in and told me to wait a few minutes while he made a call. He spoke to my doctor and found out that the nodule had not grown any in 2 years. The doctor came back in and told me no biopsy was necessary, just to have another ultrasound in 1 year. He told me to go home and enjoy myself and furthermore, there is no charge for today’s visit. Then he went to the waiting room and spoke to my daughter. This doctor whose name is Dr. Moresco has restored my faith in doctors. I applaud him for his integrity. I now have a new favorite doctor. I asked him if I could use his name in my blog and he gave his permission.
I think all of this activity this week has worn me out. I plan to sleep in tomorrow morning. I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
