Nothing like a clean bill of health

This morning, I’m feeling very happy! My first morning as a married woman :), all the sweet comments on my previous post and the fact that the blog move seems to have worked out!

For now, I’ve set comments to be moderated. The reason for that is: Before, I’ve always responded to comments from that little orange bubble in the WP-bar. This has caused me to miss out on replying … without me even noticing. There have been times, when I’ve browsed my blog back in time, and seen long threads of comments, where I’ve missed some. I hate that, it’s just such a bad thing!

Two of my blogging buddies apparently use this system of moderated comments, it seems to work out great for them, so I’ve decided to give it a go. So far, so good…

When we set the date for the wedding, a little bell rang … very far, in the back of my mind … 24th of July … that it was something about that date. I just suppressed it and thought it was somebody’s birthday or something. Eventually it dawned on me; I had a doctors appointment that day. However, that was 11:30AM, so there was plenty of time in between.

So I went to see our doctor — he’s the sweetest guy you could ever imagine — dressed up, make-up, hair fluffed up and all that! First thing he said was ‘You look really healthy!’ … to which I replied ‘Yeah, isn’t it amazing what a little bit of L’Oreal can do?!’ πŸ™‚ Then I told him…

When I go to see him, I’m always struck by the fact that he sits there, listens to all our little (?) ailments, takes his time to explain everything, throughly, and then I know he has a little son who is fighting a severe brain cancer. That just breaks my heart.

In any event, I was just there to get the results of some blood work I had, about a month ago. It was immaculate, I’m happy to say.

    Glad to hear you’ve passed with flying colours; but very sad about your Doctor’s son. Healing thoughts for him and his family…

    Glad you’re OK

    It must be hell for your doctor who knows so much more than the average person about what the cancer actually means for his son.

    OK – I am leaving a comment and setting my stopwatch πŸ˜‰

    I feel so sad about your doc’s son. I know how difficult it is to carry on as usual while your child is suffering. But, I’m happy that u are well!!

        Yes, but sometimes work is a good distraction. It feels good to be “normal” for a while. But for me I often felt my stomach sinking each time I remembered that my son was in the hospital and I had forgotten for a couple of minutes. That was just my personal problem though, I’m not sure if everyone who goes through it feels that way

          I didn’t know your son had been ill, bit I can imagine that getting some distraction — forcing oneself to think about other things … could ease the anxiety a little bit, for a while, at least.

    Good to hear your health is doing good. Sad about your doctor’s son. Life has it’s cruelties. The worst are concerning kids I believe. Kids should just be happy and carefree.

    Glad to hear you are fit as a fiddle but sorry to hear about your doctor’s son. I can only imagine what he is going through.
    I use email notifications, that way I don’t miss anything!

    1. Rebekah McNulty

      Yes, it’s so sad!
      I’m testing this version now to see if I like it. Otherwise, I’ll set it to email and label them. It’s so shameful to miss comments, and it has happened to me several times.

    Well good morning Mrs McNulty!! πŸ™‚

    Am so glad to hear that you are doing just well!! Good news!

    I remember you told me about your Doctor’s son before and it is indeed sad and I agree with Gerda, kids shouldn’t have to go through cancer or any other serious illness for that matters! They should just be children!

    Sending good thoughts to the child and his family…

    Your Doctor sounds like a real Mensch!!! Plus he noticed how well you looked; I bet you were beaming πŸ˜‰
    Congratulations on getting married….that was a REALLY big surprise πŸ™‚
    Mrs. Rebby now πŸ˜‰
    Love Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue ❀ ❀ ❀

    Definitely working with others & having a son so very ill & yet he is compassionate & caring!
    I can understand why you kept it simple; it is FAR easier…lus it made for a great surprise for all here & on FB!!! πŸ˜‰

    1. Rebekah McNulty

      Heh! Yeah, sure got a lot of attention on FB — never had that many comments before, but on the other hand; I hardly ever post anything there πŸ™‚

  9. Nylabluesmum

    LOL you sure did make a stir on FB! You have alot of friends/followers. It is not about quantity of posting; it is the quality for sure!
    You my friend are Quality πŸ˜‰

    1. Rebekah McNulty

      Thank you! πŸ™‚
      I have such a mixed group of people there. Some are from my home town, some I know well, others hardly at all. Then I have online buddies. Somehow, I like this better … the blog πŸ˜‰

  10. Nylabluesmum

    Me too about FB>>face 2 face friends & relatives; old Multiply friends; WP blog friends; a few gamers; some followers. 92 people in all…can barely keep up there. It is a great place for doing Nylalbue’s updates or something I want to share with a wide audience. I can also post to a few people on FB if I am sick so they tell all WP. It is a good system that way.
    I rarely read daily notifications; just too many. πŸ˜‰

    By the way, I rely on the WordPress app on my iPhone to manage my comments. Whenever I have a comment, even on someone else’s blog, the app provides me with an alert. Do you have the app?
