Playing Doctor-Doctor Bracingly.

You will not, in fact, be giving
Very much of a concession
To admit we all are living
For the medical profession.

It was eight o’clock I started
My own visit to the doctor,
And before we then departed
R, in ankle-brace, he locked her.

Shortly after, was my dentist that
I saw for new teef fitting,
He tried them out and, in, got pat –
Next week the final sitting.

And then grandkids I had to run
To their own dentist visits,
A filling for the younger one,
But brace plans, R elicits.

Five visits in a single day
Professions thus supporting:
To finance them in such a way
Is surely very sporting?

We did, finally, get the kids to the local Olympic Pool to exercise a bit, and so that I could time 7 yr old J for her possible attempt at the 1500m in 4o minutes this year. Then we dined on KFC. The chicken wings were HOT!

    I am tired just thinking about all your responsibility! You’re a tremendously involved grandfather, and I admire that commitment. I hope everyone is doing well after all the diagnostics!

    What a day!
    I wouldn’t mind a swim in the pool though.


  3. I know this feeling, my one son has braces and they both wear glasses.


  4. Not a fun way to spend your day. Think of all the fun things you could have been doing instead. 😳

    At least we have access to doctors. Imagine what kind of shape we’d be in without them.


  6. Get all those appointments out of the way (hopefully with few return visits for a bit) Doctor/dentist visits are getting almost a frequent as grocery store trips. Neither the most entertaining way to spend time.
    Swimming is good for ankles, surely. Hope everyone is feeling better soon

      Indeed, I can think of many far more enjoyable visits than those to docs and dents and purveyors of groceries.
      Good swimming does require flexing the ankle, and therein lies the rub . . . er, twist. Thanks!
