Doctor appointment

So after three weeks, this cough is still lingering and I have finally caved in and decided to see my doctor. I called a few minutes ago and managed to wrangle an appointment for 12:15 PM, so I’ll be heading home shortly, and working from home for the rest of the day.

And maybe get some medicine that will rid me of this cough once and for all.

Okay, to be perfectly honest, Dad is flying in tonight and if he hears me coughing he will ask if I’ve been to the doctor and if I say that I haven’t, I won’t hear the end of it. So I am going to the doctor so that I can say that I’ve been to the doctor. Maybe the secondary side-effect of the visit will be some sort of antibiotic that will relieve the cough.
