Hematologist Follow-up

Another doctor’s office. The same sterile scent and antiseptic odor in the exam room. Light-wood paneling, natural setting, photos on the wall, white Formica countertops.

All to find out if my medication has begun to kill me.

  1. Hope the meds are helping, not hurting. I take 14 different pills, and 3-4 syringes a day – do my doctors and endocrinologists run me through the monrhly gauntlet of tests and blood screens. But remember dude, without the meds, we’re screwed!

  2. I was going to write that we were both visiting doctors this week and having blood drawn, but I see in above comments that this was from a few years ago. I’m glad all is well. Like whippetwisdom I liked the description of the nurse.
