adj. Lacking distinction; ordinary.
I point that out because some have expressed a heightened concern after I wrote the post last night. Everyone: unremarkable is good! It means there was nothing of notice on the results that indicated a problem. When looking at the physical makeup of the brain, you want normal all across the board. When its born and playing Mozart on the piano at four, then we’ll talk remarkable. Until then, calm down, folks, all is fine.
Other than that, I was surprised how little a doctor gets involved. Yesterday was my first visit with Annie to the actual doctor’s office. I attended both ultrasounds, but this was the first time I went with her to the doctor for the results. Side note: Let me say there is no other way to feel except awkward, when the ol’ wife has to go the bathroom, and I’m left out in the hall holding her purse. Is there any way to smile and look like you (a man) belong in an OB/GYN office without looking like a total ass? The answer… No. Not to mention the fact that Annie’s nurse acted like she hated her job more than Republicans hate Obama. I mean, come on, you tell the patient to step on a scale and you measure blood pressure, how bad could your job be? But I digress…
Back to the doctor, whom was remarkably (there we go again with that word) brief. He listened to the heartbeat, asked us if we signed off on some paperwork, asked us if we had questions, and said come back in four weeks. That last run-on sentence lasted longer than the doctor!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy it was short. A short visit is a good visit… Shall I even say… Unremarkable? Yes, yes I shall.
