Whoa! You have a doctor there?

Yep, and Yep!

Actually, it blew me away that they would just call the late afternoon before the "rescheduled" appointment and re-book it.

To think of it, it's not the first time this has happened. Luckily last time I happened to be at home for a quick moment when they called to say I had an appointment the next morning at 9am.


And WWU: Yah, we finally have a couple rotating doctors, and one of whom has more-or-less decided to make Rankin home. Which is really nice, as I'm sure you can understand!!!
