When we were called back into the room, we got the last room on the right. I think this is the room for a "special" kind of people. These special people are the kind that don't complain and see the positive in everything. Yup, we passed all the high teched out rooms and got the one with the old pink chair with the rip being held together by duct tape and rust on the edges.
Thankfully, the Dr was not from the Twilight Zone, although he did give me a cursory stare for a moment longer than he should have. Kind of like, "where did you come from and why are you so interested in my poster of the inner sinus cavity?'. K went first (very out of character!) and had her nose cauterized because of excessive nose bleeds. She was feeling pretty fine and brave by the time I got in the old chair. She thought it was HYSTERICAL that when the guy put the light in one side of my nose, you could see it out the other. Then he showed her how he could make my nose blink like Rudolphs. I love a Dr with a sense of humor, especially when he has a long snakey tube up into my sinus. I think I saw her slip him a fiver after.
We high tailed it out of there back into present day as quick as we could. We stopped at Friendly's for an ice cream and it took us about 1/2 hour at the takeout window (in February) which put us right back into reality. Phew.
