Doctors and Nurses

Yesterday I saw my endocrinologist and she told me that I'm healthy and don't need to go back to the hospital again.  Hurray!  I actually like my doctor but I'm very happy to never see her again.  Well, I think I'm never going to see her again, she says she'll see me when I get pregnant again.  I keep telling her we're not having any more children (for various practical, financial and medical reasons) but she doesn't believe me.  Even yesterday, as I was leaving, she said "I know it's not going to be in the next year or two but when you do decide to have another child...".  I think over the years she must have seen a lot of women come in with postpartum hyperthyroidism who swear they're not having any more children, only to show up pregnant a few years later.  Like people with hangovers who swear they're never drinking again.

So my Grave's Disease is gone (again) and for the first time in about 5 years I don't have an imminent doctors/hospital appointment or blood test, so to celebrate I'm doing a Doctors and Nurses themed blog.  As with all my blogs at the minute, it hasn't quite gone to plan...  So it's doctors, nurses and anything else vaguely medicine-related that's not made of latex.  I think next week I should make things easy on myself and just do really vague themes like 'blue' and 'knitted'.
