My doctor's appointment

I saw my doctor today. Can I just say that I love my doctor? He is so wonderful. He's an older man; he could have retired by now, but I'm so glad he hasn't. In my opinion, he can truly be called a "healer." He always seems to be current with research on a wide variety of health issues, and he takes a very pro-active stance in health care.

Anyway, he asked me so many questions (and actually listened to my answers). He agreed to run all the blood tests I requested, plus several more that he thought were appropriate (the nurse took 8 vials of blood!) and he explained what he thinks might be some of the problems I'm facing.

He didn't sugar-coat anything....just told me what he thinks we're looking at, which is exactly what I want. I should get test results in maybe a week, so we may know more then.

He gave me a few prescriptions and told me to come back in a month for a follow-up visit, so that we can evaluate how those are working and if we need to change anything. So, unless the blood tests show something that he's not expecting, I'll see him again in a month.

I'll blog more about this when I know more, but this is today's update.

I can't wait until you get results.

You know I've got you in my prayers.

Thanks so much, my friend. I appreciate it more than you know!

Hey Patty, you're quite lucky to have a doctor like that. A very rare thing indeed for one to actually listen to his patient. 99.99% I do not trust doctors.

I couldn't agree with you more, Blue. I feel very lucky, indeed. I wish you had a genuinely caring and competent and committed doctor near you, as well.
