And This Is Why I Love Going To The Dr. With Chuck....

October 5, 2010 - UTSW, Dallas


Today was doctor day for Chuck.......
Chuck's Scabby ICK Head

First stop; Dermatologist.  Remember that funky, scabby, nasty sore-looking ICK that Chuck had on his head while in Colorado?  We thought he had "repaired" it by secretly slathering Purell on his head every day?  Well, it didn't last.........so off to the dermatologist today we went.  Fortunately, it turned out to be just minor skin cancers that the doc could freeze off and we were quickly on our way.  YEAAAAAA.....we move on.........

Dr. Elliot Frohman











Second stop; Neurologist.  Chuck is blessed to have one of the top neurologists in the country, Dr. Elliot Frohman at University of Texas Southwest, a top teaching hospital in Dallas.......kinda like Seattle Grace on Grey's Anatomy, but without Meredith, Derek or Christina...
We have discovered over the years that when his appointment is in the afternoon, we are usually going to have a bit of a wait......so we come prepared.  Chuck brings his iPad and snacks, Liz brings her iTouch and Wifi card.....but the very BEST part of Doctor Day???

My hubby just shaved his head after a decade of extremely long hair. Now he's complaining his head itches and there are similar growths on one side of his head like on Chuck's head. He says it's pretty sore to touch them... and skin cancer runs huge in his family... guess he'd better get it checked out. Do you think maybe I could get a foot massage if I suggest that I tag along?

To Nursebond.....

Chuck complained that these places on his head were sore to touch as well....matter of fact, it hurt for him to wear a hat cause they were so sensitive. Fortunately, Chuck's family doesn't have a lot of skin cancer problems, unlike mine....my whole family is a walking skin cancer. And as for the foot rub, poor Chuck had little choice....I just slapped the ole' foot in his lap and said "RUB"......I've found its better not to "ask"........

I sure hope that it is your foot that he is playing with, and not the nurse's.

Someone is rubbing or even touching your feet and you are not hanging from the chandeliers??? That must be a trait from your Mom.....I think the calloway side is unable to tolerate that.....at least this one part of the calloway family would be writhing on the floor. enjoy.
