Today I had a yearly checkup with a new nurse practitioner since my regular doctor is always booked. I like my doctor, but I think in the last 10 years, I’ve only seen her a handful of times I’ve needed an appointment. That’s ok. The nurse practitioners I have seen have all been great. And the one today was super sweet, so I’m thankful for that. I’m also thankful that all the regular yearly tests she ordered have come back normal.
I have a couple more preventative tests to get out of the way that I put off last year. Ugh. It’s probably not shocking, but after one cancer diagnosis, every preventative screening feels stressful. I’m not going to worry too much, but I will definitely feel better once they’re behind me.
