Well, almost. I went to the doctor again, today. It's becoming a habit, except it's always a different doctor. Today was a pre-op physical for my prostate biopsy a week from now. In contrast to the Dr.'s visit on Friday, today was quick, efficient, friendly, and professional. What more could a guy want while worrying about his prostate? I'm grateful for my health insurance coverage.

My doc asked me if my cholesterol was normal. Hello. Isn't that his job? But it's okay. He was having a bad bout of hay fever and was feeling pretty miserable. He looked like warmed over death, too. It's perversely comforting that doctors have maladies just like the rest of us. The white coat only goes so far for disease prevention.
