GP Appointment part 2

Well on Friday i finally got to see my GP

He wasn't as grand as i thought he would be

Hello how are you he asked me politely

undernourished with heart beat a little bit flighty?

No remember i completed your online test

I just wanted to put my mind at rest

It said that i was probably depressed

You sent me a text "please come in and be assessed"

Oh did i really i wonder why?

Here's a card for therapy,take care, goodbye

Wait a moment i hastily replied

What about my copd i could have died?

Well here.s a spirometry test from last year

20% fev not too good i fear

Sorry has nobody showed you it yet

Perhaps its time for a serious bet

I,ll wager your not here in 10 yrs time

You won't collect say i you'll be in jail for crime

He rose and showed me to the door

I left depressed i wanted more

Enough of this hows Scuffy i hear you cry

She,s asleep on my bed where i want to lie

i'll give her a nudge and maybe a treat

Anything to get her on her feet

Later when i am fast asleep

She will pee on my head and make me weep

Love to all

Oh skischool what a tale. Not good, not good.


Or was it poetic licence?

Hi Katinka,The bet was poetic licence but the rest is pretty much factual,i only got the copd results as i asked for previous figures amongst other stuff to take to new consultant,Though complaints are working as i have an invite received today to go to the hospital on Monday for what i believe will be 6 min walk test for Ambulatory

But i could,.t get spiro done at surgery as no appointments available until end of July!

Anyway chins up its a small drop of progress,hope all is well with you and BB.xx


Hope all goes well for you tomorrow x


Skischool not a great result

Terrible really but not your fault.

Scruffy will help to cheer you up

And help to half fill up that cup.

Take care xxxx

I hope you get better and return home soon Jummie. Lilian xxxxxxx

As long as Scruffy's okay :)

Doesn't sound like the best GP visit ever. Better luck on Monday and try not to fall over the traffic cones.

Thanks for the giggle :)


Wishing you the very best of luck with the appointment tomorrow. XXX
