THE CLINIC BLOG

Larry Griffin is a very popular guy at the clinic. When he arrives at about 9:00 am to get to his chair, the whole place seems to come to life. Conversational chatter increases, greetings abound and jokes would start flying back and forth across the unit.

Been at this routine for over 10 years, but I still look forward to it. Getting up at 4:00am 3 times a week to get ready to sit in that ‘chair’. Yeah you want to get enough sleep to get up early, but you like the 10pm news too. Anyway after cleaning up, you grab some snacks and your water bottle and you are out the door.

Surviving a session at the Clinic is a little bit more than just staying alive. You got to be able to deftly handle your life, health and ‘technical requirements’. We come into the clinic weighing over our ‘dry weight’ and sometimes short of breath, so you can’t wait to get that weight off of you.

When you’re online dating, why do you swipe left on one person and swipe right on another? Are you carefully weighing every factor that makes someone a good romantic match? Not according to a study of more than 1 million interactions on a dating website published this week

When taking about the clinic staff, even if you know you’re right, remember to do it very quietly or you’ll incur the Wrath of Shawn (Risa’s buddy and co-enforcer). I found out again that Shawn is a force to be reckoned with.

Morning in the Clinic started out normal enough.  Arrived there a little later than usual I rush to get on the scale. Over the weekend found out I was 6 full kilos over my ‘weight’.  It meant that to get back to normal, about 13 pounds of fluid would have to be removed today. No way all that could be done by me in one treatment session.

Arrived pain free (count my blessings) to the clinic at 5:15 am. An uneventful Saturday morning I realized I’m in good hands because my regular technician Shawn is here. I know this treatment should go well, I expect no complications (Shawn is really good). Morning greetings follow and after I’m put on the machine Les and I talk about Burn Notice upcoming season opener. We both are looking forward to that show.

A Day At The Clinic 1

It’s Wednesday night and I’m feeling decent about myself. The days when you don’t feel aches and pain, when you breathe normally, stomach is working and the rest of the body is in order, you just simply count your blessings and say thank God! No you are not normal and probably never will be, but to get a rare pain and drama free day (or night) you got to say with me, IT WAS A GOOD DAY!
