Thank you all for your kind comments on my journey into faith on my last post. It really means a lot that while we don’t always agree, we can all treat each other with respect.
Today I got a phone call from my endocrinologist’s office. I didn’t think this was odd because I have (or spoiler alert: had) an appointment scheduled for this Friday.
The nurse told me she was going to have to reschedule my appointment. She asked me if I was on an insulin pump. When I told her I was, she confirm that was the problem with my appointment.
Most of the appointments with the endo are only scheduled for fifteen minutes, but those on insulin pumps get thirty minutes. The person who originally made my appointment didn’t realize I was pumping. She wanted to reschedule me for an opening they had later that day, but since it involves fasting blood work a 1 pm appointment is really not ideal.
My appointment is rescheduled for next Tuesday, and I hope to use all of my thirty minutes. Fifteen minutes?! That is ridiculous! If you haven’t read Cheating Destiny to understand how common this practice is, you need to buy yourself a copy today.
Sarah Jane and I were both watching Rizzoli and Isles in our respective time zones Monday night and were surprised to see an insulin pump. It’s a shame that it was on the murder victim though and (spoiler alert) it had something to do with the cause of death – although it wasn’t the insulin overdose we’ve seen 1000 times before.
