While my pain is getting worse
I am very encouraged that we are on a right
course for getting it resolved.
Yesterday, I had a 35 minute drive to a
specialist's office. I was so close to
tears as I prayed that I would be allowed
to speak to someone who would be willing
to spend more than five minutes with me.
The Physician's Assistant must have been
directly working with my case for more than
an hour. She listened, she documented, she reviewed
notes from a couple of years ago. Then she went and
consulted with the doctor because she said I am becoming
"complex". (She's not the first to think that! - lol)
She confirmed that my plan for a
second opinion is a good one. I needed to hear that!
I don't know the last time a doctor's office
made me feel that time wasn't ticking!
I went to my second appointment and that doctor
is my regular family physician.
He came into the room and immediately cracked
a joke. It just set the tone for an easier time
of talking about these things that are just so hard.
This doctor had only good things to say about the
doctor I will see for the second opinion. Isn't that
I was so thankful for both of these appointments.
Someone was praying....THANK YOU!
About the book giveaway...either no one really
wants the book or they just didn't follow the
directions to say to enter them, however, based
on what I know about the three who commented on
yesterday's post I want to send the book to
Miss Paula. I think she would enjoy it the most.
So, Miss Paula, I need you to email me
with your address so I can work on another weakness...
getting things to the post office!
Surprise Visitors...Mrs. Rabe and her
nearly grown daughter, Lindsay, stopped by
yesterday to retrieve something.
I begged them to come in and
chat for a few minutes.
Made my day!
Their timing was great too.
I was just about to fill the dishwasher
so I got to delay that chore by about
a half an hour...not to mention that
had they come much earlier they would not
have found me home.
I am so glad they came by!
I know I say it all of the time...
but I love my friends!
