“The doctor has your results now“…RN
“My Biopsy results? What are they?” Ronnie
“You’ll have to make an appointment to find out“….RN
Grrrr…..Good thing I LIKE her.
Strength in the Body…..Let’s Do This
If you ever get a chance to watch the Tiny Tigers at ATA do so, because they’re adorable as their Lead Instructor stands up front, and does some ridiculous exaggeration of poses to help them with their motto:
Strength In the Body
(Strength in the body)
Strength in the Mind
(Strength in the mind)
While making the muscle pose, and point to the brain and arm guns. They’re Tiny Tigers, the most feared of all ATA classes. One must walk a fine line with the T.T. because if they smell fear on you, they assemble into a pack and attack…it’s worse than wolves. I’ve seen more than one good Instructor lose control over this one simply request, “I…hafta….go…potty”. In our once-a-month Leadership Team meetings, they don’t really touch on how to defeat the Tiny Tigers, nature’s 3-5yr old monsters, only that one MUST retain control, if one is to establish a rapport and join in their community. They love a good laugh, and I’ve actually used a “High Five” as a motivator on a line of kids in a Church hallway….That Mess Works Yo….It’s Brilliant. Strength In The Body…..dontacha wish they could do that for us too?
So yes, I had my legs hoisted up last week and had the inside of my uterus scrapped all in the name of Science….well diagnostic really. The results were supposed to take two weeks, so I had another week, to worry, but NO….they came back yesterday, and the RN, who I do like, called me and wanted to know why I didn’t have an appointment. “They didn’t make me one” I responded, and it was true…I figurered they’d call, and they did, when the results came back, but she had a sweet piece of peach cobbler right there on her computer screen and wouldn’t even share with me if I should be worried….I’ll have to wait until Monday to see if I have Cancer….Waiting and Patience are not my strong points. I’ve tried 16 different ways from Sunday to trick someone….but unless it’s my PCP staff, I don’t wan anyone to lose their jobs….sigh.
Strength In The Body, denotes that I can do all things through my body, which helps me, when I treat it well. I’m not committing blasphemy of the Bible, I’m saying when you take care of your body, it will take care of you. The Body is the last to submit. Quit smoking today, the Body won’t accept it for a week. The flesh is weak…see…and when you force it to submit to your Will you rule the world…Maw. I was talking to an RN yesterday, whose been following me around all year. “Last two clinical’s” I shouted…she smiled, “I want to quit NOW” I said…..”No….I WON’T let you” she said back…I have Summer Break Madness so bad it makes me want to quit…..like my body, in the middle of a 2 min plank, I want to just drop my defenses and let bygones be bygones….Don’t do it…..Strength In the Body….Tiny Tigers may be the most fearsome of all ATA classes, but their the cutest and most rewarding too….you gotta get in there, mix it up, smack them around, and get them to trust and respect you…..The Body is the same way…mix it up, smack it around, and get it to respect you….there’s nothing you can’t do…with a body that submits. Yeah okay, I’m still working on that too, but I really gotta go….Be Blessed.
