And here's something else- I'm at the age where it is no longer socially acceptable to go to a pediatrician. I visited my pediatric rheumatologist today for my next to last appointment with her. The past two times I've been I've gotten comments such as, "are you the patient or the parent?" -the receptionist and "I typically don't see twenty-somethings" -the resident. Thank you. I realize I'm old and I have every intention of transitioning out of my pediatric phase upon graduation from college. I know there are people younger than me sitting in this waiting room with their children... believe me, I feel uncomfortable, too. On the bright side, my doctor told me we could go out for drinks and to see movies or something when I'm not her patient anymore... that makes it better that I'm about to fly the pediatric coop, I guess.
Tomorrow I get to pick Lila up from the beauty shop. She told me to "look pretty" so we can go to lunch. Will do, Libby, will do.
