    I did laundry today but felt surprisingly up to it. I’ve had a good day.

    Sunshine, you are still doing really well.

    Today I had a little dizziness this morning, but got better. So I washed two loads of linens and then started dusting and doing some polishing on the furniture. Worked for quite awhile, but did take two breaks of at least 30 minutes each. This afternoon I stood for about 1hr 40 min while peeling, washing, chopping food for dinner for tonight and tomorrow night. Did not do my exercises, but felt I had done enough. Still have to put clean linens on bed.

    Today's activity consisted of going to the Doctor's office to see the NP. Leaving there and stopping by K-Mart, walking in to pharmacy to get prescriptions and then going to Lowe's Foods and picking up just a few items that I needed.

    At least I got in a little walking.

    Question

    Virginia, or anyone who knows. I have a NP. Is it alright to call her "doc"? I always called my old doctor "doc". I know she is a NP, but she's MY doc.

    I was introduced today Howie and she just said Sarah, so I call her Sarah. Also the man NP that I saw in my Neurologist office goes by his first name of Harry.

    Thumbs up

    When I see her in May, my next appointment, I'll just ask her what I should call her.

    Asking her sounds like a good idea. The NPs and PAs I've had have usually introduced themselves by their first names, and I went with that.

    However, I always called my PCP "doctor" even though some of her staff seemed to think it was OK to call her by her first name but I never could bring myself to think of her as "Paula."

    For instance, if I was talking to an assistant there, she might say, "Have you seen Paula yet?"

    The first time I heard this, I had to stop and think, "Who's Paula?" before I realized she meant the doctor. So maybe some MDs want to be called by their first names but I just can't seem to get with the program.

    I am a PA. Many patients called me “Doc” no matter how many times I corrected them. I had a name tag clearing stating my name with the initials RN, PA-C followed by my department. That’d The best I could do. They all knew I was not a physician.

    The thing that surprised me was there was no one in my career who refused to see me. I mean you’d think there would be.
