One of the things I love about the new RE is that it is in a more multi-purpose area, as opposed to the cluster of hospitals of the other one. This means parking is free (yay!) and it means there are a ton of shops, restaurants, all kinds of stuff if I wanted to do something before/after my many many many scans/blood draws/appointments I will have at this place.
There's a salon near the RE that does blow outs for $40. For another $10 you can get a braid or you can get a scalp massage. HEAVEN. Getting my hair blown out is one of my favorite things. Doing it on a Wednesday after a dildo cam seems absurd, but no more absurd than this whole ridiculous process. And I'm supposed to keep my stress down right? And I hate acupuncture. So, massages and scalp massage. Mmmmm.
Probably cheaper than stupid acupuncture anyway.
And then I had an even better idea. Both my mom and my MIL want to come to one of my many fun meetings with a dildo cam. Wouldn't it be fun to go get our hair done after? Wouldn't that be relaxing and fun and bonding? We could do our hair, go to lunch, and try to pretend like this is just a fun female outing. Try to pretend this is normal.
