So, I had my "new patient appointment" for the doctor on Wednesday. Because of Kero's anxiety issues I had to go by myself; something I haven't done since before I lost the rest of my sight. It helps that we have a good taxi firm who are usually quite helpful, and who had no problem with dropping me off at and then picking me up from the reception desk on the correct floor of the building in which I was being seen. The receptionist was very helpful too, and I was quite impressed that she remembered me by name despite only having seen me once before (when we went to register).
Anyway, I'm sure you know the drill; blood pressure, weight, height, etc, all get checked.
First time they took my blood pressure it was 161 over 88, then it went down to 141 over 85, then 134 over 83. A bit higher than it should have been, but under the circumstances that wasn't too bad. To be honest, I actually expected it to be worse (it's been 170 over 90 quite often in the past).
As for my weight... I'm not as light as I'd have liked to have been when I went back to see a doctor, but I'm lighter than I was when I was last weighed by a doctor, even with the fact that last time I was given the oppertunity to remove my shoes, jacket and pocket contents (phone, wallet, etc) and this time I wasn't given time to do so. I knew I'd put back on a lot of what I'd managed to lose last year - that keeps happening; I lose some, I put most of it back on, I lose some, I put most of it back on, and so on - so I was actually pleased with what the scales said on Wednesday.
Anyway, that's that all sorted.
It's just a shame I forgot to ask them about refering me to an artificial eye person. *Shrugs helplessly* Ah well, it's not like that's urgent.
