Plastic Surgeon today, Oncologist tomorrow

Today my friend Ann and I made the trek to Boston for my visit to the plastic surgeon at Brigham & Women's.  We arrived early and parked on the roof of the garage - this is one busy medical complex!  We walked to Dana Farber and handed over the medical records that were requested in advance of tomorrow's appointment, then went to lunch.  We lingered for a while as my PS appointment was at 2:30.  We had to go back to the car because I had not grabbed the records for the PS...duh...then we proceeded to B&W and located the PS's office on the "pike".  Actually, finding things was not too difficult but that might be because Ann knows her way around these facilities.  I completed the usual required paperwork (some day we really will have digital medical records!!!), waited just a few minutes and I was called in. 

Within 5 minutes or so, the doctor and his "entourage" - I suspect a "fellow" PS and the doctor's nurse, came in, we talked for a couple of minutes, and I got my 60 cc fill.  No muss, no fuss, and we were out of there.  I go back in 3 weeks for the next fill. 

Tonight Jack cooked us a fabulous dinner of pork loin stuffed with spinach and asiago, broccoli with cheese sauce and Ann made a great salad.  Now we are settled down to watch Dancing With the Stars and The Voice. 

It's quiet here and all is good.
