my funniest doctor (or Keely talk continued)

May 31, 2007

We've been to the doctor more times recently than in the whole of Keely's life, consequently Keely has been playing doctor a lot. This week I had a real appointment because I had this freaky growth on my shin. Turns out it is a benign tumor that has decided to grow. Lovely. I'd prefer no tumors, thanks. Anywho. Today, Keely gets her dr. stuff to "fix" me. I sit down. She says, "What's wrong with your leg today?" I say, "Oh I have a weird bump on it. Can you fix it?"  She says, with stethoscope around her neck and glasses on, "Ummmmm….NOPE! but I can listen to you heart!" and she waves the end of the stethoscope up at me comically. If she knew how to raise her eyebrows up and down, she totally would have.

 I laughed so hard I cried mostly because she is so funny and also because it seems like that's kind of how real dr. visits go. Yes, I see you have a problem. It's a good one. We don't know really what it is, what causes it, or what to do about it. Soooo, how 'bout we give you some random prescription and see what happens?

Anyway after I messed up her play with my giggling, we had to re-shoot the scene. We started over. This time I asked her if she thought she could fix my leg and she said. "Yeeeeeeah (slow nodding of her head). No. BUT I can draw you a picture of a NEW leg!" She grabbed her notebook and drew me- with a really nice, new leg.  Now there is a medical service I could really use.  I have a few parts that I'd like to have drawn and then magically brought into existence, in its proper location to replace the old part.   

After my dr. visit was finished I got a special sticker "for being so patient". Bwah ha. Seriously, that's what she said. Patient. Although she didn't know she was being punny. I wish all my dr. visits were so entertaining.

    I’m entertained just reading it. But seriously, tell your body to just calm down and chill out. No more problems, even benign ones…

    She’s great! Very creative!
    I also gain A LOT of weight during pregnancy. I’ve had two and I gained about 60 lbs for both. And I’m 5’1″. I have no room to spare between the pelvis and the ribcage. Well, I feel for ya!
    Keep up the giggles! Tell Keely that giggling is good for Mommy and for Baby!
