It was doctor day today. First of all it was me. I was going in for a check-up on my knee. The doctor had a look and a feel and a listen (the latter to me, not my knee) and thought it wasn't too serious. Basically, the three and a half months of doing nothing had put a tendon in a place of such rest that it was now protesting to any movement.
The doctor's advice: stop walking so much (2 km?) and train up the upper legs. That should take the tension of the tendon and let me walk again. Fortunately cycling was deemed okay and in fact beneficial. The fact that I was trying to loose weight was also a plus. All in all a good thing, because I was dreading more serious news!
This afternoon it was Miss Oswin's turn to see the doctor. In her case it was the annual check-up. She had lost some weight as well, which wasn't bad as she was getting to be a bit on the chubby side. Of course she doesn't agree. Her teeth were fine, her skin was great and even the bald patch on her tummy didn't look too bad.
All in all a good day at the doctor's office!
