why, thank you

today has been rather hectic, with one patient presenting for a routine appointment hypoxic and needing to be set up with home oxygen and another who had a screaming toddler in tow (who was luckily appeased with some cookies and by the end of the visit was crawling up into my lap and telling me what color my shirt was). we were short staffed this afternoon too, so while the patients were a little less crazy, it was still a lot of running back and forth and trying to get things done in a timely fashion while not compromising patient care. 

fast forward to my second-to-last patient of the day. he's a retired pastor in his eighties who is the spitting image of morgan freeman, complete with booming voice (and a proclivity for tacking on "...know what I'm saying?" to every sentence). he's always asking about kaiser and swapping stories about his own German shepherds that he had growing up. at the end of his visit, i told him i had electronically sent his medication refills to his pharmacy. with a wide grin, he shook my hand and pronounced: "your efficiency is only surpassed by your beauty!"   

sure makes up for people who throw a fit when they don't get scripts for 300 tablets of  oxycodone...
