Things I learned today:

How to freak your Doctor out.

When you go in for your Doctorís appointment, he asks how you are, and you proudly tell him that youíve lost 10 kg (22 lbs) in the last eight weeks.

Itís not until his eyes widen in horror, and your better half hastily chips in ďOn purpose, on purpose........Ē that you remember that youíre talking to your Oncologist.

Ho hum.

The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

Not funny...there are certain "triggers" that patients can complain about that immediately set off alarms in the doctor's office (or gets you to the front of the line at ERs). For me, it's kinda up there with making bomb jokes when you are going through security at the airport...but hey, maybe your doc has a sense of humor about if you complain of chest pain?

Itís not like I did it intentionally, or for a joke, just lack of forethought. I was pleased at losing the weight, and medical professionals are always telling us (us being the overweight) to use a few pounds. If it had have been my GP, Iím sure he would have been pleased, I just didnít put two and two together quickly enough.
