Mac and medicine

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I haven't blogged about Mac in a while.

Truth is, I was banned.
It seems I may have offended her a couple times.
I apologized, removed the offending posts and tried to be a good blogger mommy.

But yesterday we had another visit to the doctor and my blogging restraint was pushed to the limits.
I should explain.
Every time I bring Mac to the doctor it's sure to be an "interesting" experience. But whenever we go to this "certain doctor" Mac is in true form.

I won't go into any detail but lets just say that we've been to this doctor numerous times since we've moved here and have tried several different treatments that haven't worked.

This doctor loves to banter with Mac. He will say something, Mac will sarcastically respond, he will throw it right back at her and then it's all down hill from there. All I can do is sit back and shake my head. The last time I had to get up and walk out of the room to get them to stop, otherwise, I think we would have been there all day.

In the elevator on the way to his office, I told Mac that I needed to pick up Tony in 45 minutes so I needed the appointment to be short.

Mac says "Oh, don't worry I was planning on keeping it short. I think my humor might be impairing his judgement. I need him to focus and choose the right medicine so I can get better."
Through out the entire appointment I was a little afraid that Mac would interrupt the doctor to say "focus!" because her promise of keeping it short lasted about 2 minutes and the wisecracks were being flung back and forth.

Unfortunately, Mac didn't inherit her quick wit from me and I had trouble just keeping up.
I do remember at one point Mac accused the doctor of trying to kill her and he thanked her for helping him appreciate that he only had boys.

Mac cursed assured him that one of his sons would end up marrying someone just like her.

I managed to snag the prescription between jests and when the conversation turned to Juno, Alaska (don't ask me how it got there, I never said a word) I stood up to leave. The doctor followed us to the check out counter to get in the last jab which I assume is a little unusual due to the surprised look on the receptionists face.

She is due for a recheck in 3 weeks.
I'm beginning to think Mac hasn't been cured on purpose....and I don't know if it's out of vengeance or that he enjoys her company.

Sounds like Mac can really hold her own!!! and she's very beautiful, you better keep an eye on her!!!!

I agree, sounds like she is full of wit and beauty. Hoping that she is fully cured soon (though I'm sure the doctor will miss her).

Everytime I bring my daughter to one of her doctors, she always yells at me in the elevator then the door opens and guess what, we usually know someone standing there! :)
You have to love them though!!

Outspoken, that's an easy trait for a teenager but hopefully its for the better.

Barb said...

Is the doctor young and unmarried? Just thinkin' maybe he'd be a good son-in-law. Unless he can't figure out what's wrong with her, of course! And I agree, she's a beauty.

LOL...I'm sorry, but that's too funny! I do hope Mac is better soon though. :) If only for your sake. :P

I'm sure someone who offers more intellectual stimulation that the standard litany of complaints is very appreciated, sure.

I've got a gyno who's very good with the snappy banter.

I love him...but it's weird sometimes to have this repartee going when my legs are up in the air...

Uh-oh. Too much sharing?
