MEDICAL UPDATE

Change of plans.  I received this message from the doctor.

"Dear Ms and Mr Wolff,

 I first thought you could not move too easily that is why i proposed to come to your place. Actually it would be much easier  for me if you could come with two appointments to my clinic where I have my computer and the possibility to create a file.

 Could you call my secretary on: 01 49 83 94 70 and ask for 2 appointments starting monday the  3rd.

Best regards"


In an odd way, this is even better.  When I contacted her, I told her our ages [79 and 80].  She offered to come to our apartment because she thought we would be feeble.  When she received our medical records, she saw that we were functional, and decided it would make more sense for us to go to her clinic [which, by the way, Google street pictures shows me is above a café.  I love it!]

I shall call today for the appointments, and report on the visit.  With any luck, we shall not need medical attention, but at our age, one never knows.

I love your musings from Paris. Kind of like a novel come to life. However, I would love to hear the voice of Susie. Might she comment or join in or write a guest blog? Her musings, too, would add a nice dimension.

Jerry, Susie is a very private person and was horrified by the thought of posting something online [when she was in college, she would only write me short notes in response to my love letters], so I fear she will appear on this blog only via my loving comments and reports.

It's funny how things happen.

You are in France, I've even mentioned El Prado recently (where there is a large collection of Goya's works) and only now I was reminded of the 205th anniversary, a few weeks ago, of the events depicted in Goya's "The Second of May" and "The Third of May".
